Barring the unforeseen, I will be purchasing a PS4.
I'm so glad the devs win with the friendlier format, as that will make the playing field more even. PS3 has had a bad shake in the market because it was so hard to make games on that platform, as you said, and this change should make the only market concerns 'the games', and 'the services provided'.
As it is, I have PS3 and 360, and the 360 gets the lion's share of my time. I believe that will change, but that's speculation.
Driveclub looks like pure car-porn, and I can't wait, but I would give a LOT for a next gen game that had the same elements as Drakan.
If the actual franchise line could be reactivated, though.... that would be a dream come true. A new Drakan game...
I watch Netflix through my PS3 because it has better capacity for high-end media than my oldish Mac does. Despite that, I can't be sure I would use the services they're planning, as I currently ignore almost all services provided by Xbox live and the Playstation Network.
Honestly, I can't wait. The last generation upgrade was SO worthy... I trust this will be a similar step up!
