A place where a discussion can be had prior to the gaming consoles release, starting with the annoucement event, which is being streamed live from many places, I'll be watching it at 

http://www.gameplanet.co.nz/orbis/features/1022881.20130220.Live-stream-PlayStation-reveal-event/

In case other people are looking for a place. 

After it's release this will be a good place for people to discuss how they like it, and what issues they are having with it.

My guess is the new unit will support Ultra HD, maybe also load games from "cloud" as well as blu-ray

yeah that feature does not appeal to me at all, even with an unlimited internet plan.

Is the feed down for anyone else?
