2. Sucker Punch and Guerilla Games with both have launch titles for the Orbis. One will be Killzone 4, the other won't be Infamous.

3. The Last Guardian still wont be released this year. Launch title anyone?

4. Orbis will come pre-loaded with content. This was a theme at Sony's CES presentation, and is an idea that should be developed for all sony products. Maybe some Sony movies and PSN titles.

5. Planetside 2 will come pre-installed on all launch Orbis models. Speaking of pre-loaded content...

6. The game cases will see a re-design for Orbis. Think Criterion Collection sexy. Could we see a nice translucent blue colored case to compliment the Vita?

7. The little things. The Orbis will be able to support cross game chat and charge your USB devices when the system is off.

8. The Death of the XMB. If the Vita's menu is any clue, the XMB will not be jumping to next gen.
Nice predictions; reasonable too.

Lets see.....

1.) Sony Playstation Orbis is released in November.
2.) Orbis will have double the storage space of the current PS3
3.) Orbis will have a display screen, so high end users can see what is playing in the machine when playing music, just as high end bluray players do.
4.) Orbis will allow 8 devices to be linked to it wirelessly; such as Vitas, PSmove, PStablets, and controllers.
5.) Orbis will be seen as an entertainment hub, and have the ability to allow phones and tablets to play games through it and offer cross platform trophies.
6.) Sony will offer a disk less machine for about half of the bluray version, to help gain traction to a cloud based system.
7.) Sony attempts to use Orbis store to undercut competitors, by offering cheaper prices if you buy through their store versus iTunes or Amazon.
8.) Sony to use long term contracts to help make the Orbis slim(disk less machine) cost half as much as bluray version.
