Solution to that is obviously to move to a new system, with what will certainly be five times as many issues in that same department.

Morever, NO backward compatibility on either system? Talk about a gigantic slap in the face. I think Tom Sizemore showed Heidi Fleiss more respect on Celebrity Rehab than Sony and MS are offering their loyal customers. My message to both companies is to piss off. They're offering a more "connected" system with better graphics, woo effing hoo. Count me out.

If you want "connected", use a smart phone. If you want super hardware, building a gaming desktop. This seems like a half-assed solution where they're attempting to offer something to enjoy for everyone where in reality, there will be virtually nothing new enjoyed by anyone. No new drive, no substantial improvement on tried-and-true aspects of the gaming experience. Expand to gain more revenue instead of fixing what does not work, traditional corporate America thinking.
Actually the PS4 should have less issues for developers than the PS3 because there's no more 'Cell' architecture for the PS4 which makes it easier on developers as the PS4 has X86-64 processing architecture which is the most common PC architecture.

Also the PS4 blu-ray drive (6x read) is significantly faster than any PS3 drive (2x read) ...

I don't know what you mean by "fix what does not work"... without specifics I don't know what to say... the PS3 can't compete with software and is an old system now...

EDIT:

I also do like that Sony is really leading the system open for Indie developers. I don't think we'll be seeing that from Microsoft.
