I think it would be a good strategy for Last of Us to be released as a launch title for the PS4 (Orbis). The hype is already up (more than 2.5 million views on a gameplay trailer in less than a month!) thats pretty much almost the same amount of ps4s that will be sold if this game is bundled with it because everyone who watched it, loved it & wants it (even xbox only owners). My friend (a proud xbox owner) bought a ps3 because I managed to convince him somehow & he sold after a few months because he just didn't like it (he missed his xbox live features). He texted me, 2 hours ago about this game saying he couldn't wait for it come out. Obviously he was disapointed when I told him its ps3 only.
If this is a launch title people wouldn't hesitate to buy the ps4(orbis) as long as it has great features which im sure sony has learnt about by now lol. I'm telling you, the console would launch already flying! Some people will hestitate to buy a new console when they know the next one is almost here.
Sony, save it for next gen! which is 2013/2014 anyway!

Why when the PS3 can handle it just fine Not to mention its already running on PS3 tech (Uncharted 3 engine) so being on next gen is only going to restric its preformance..
This is the reason why not many are in a rush for next gen. Beyond, The Last of Us and God of War Ascension all say HI.
It would take more then one game to make me an early adopter as well. PS3 still has 3-4 years of support left from Sony, and then 3rd party will still keep the PS3 going for a few years after that depending on how it keeps selling, just like the PS2 did plenty of years along side PS3.
The Last of Us is pegged for early next year, we wont see next gen until next Christmas at the least. This year has been bad enough for AAA games and I cannot remember the last time I played a Sony exclusive game so no way hosay am I waiting even longer (anpother year!) for a decent PlayStation exclusive - the sole reason why I like PlayStation in the first place

The world has changed, gaming has changed (see PS Vita flop). It's time for Sony to move to incremental updates and keep compatibility (see Apple or Android games/apps) with previous versions.
Think about the average sales figures for a PSP title and the sales figures of Angry Birds. The gaming industry is no longer driven by hardcore gamers.
A PS4 incompatible with PS3 games will be the end of Sony in the gaming space. It sounds extreme but I think that's the way it is.

It's using an upgrade of the Uncharted 3 engine, so would make no sense for it to be a release title for a yet unconfirmed next gen console... Though it would fit with their one franchise a console habit, except the company does seem to be now spreading its wings bigger and wider with seperate teams..
Now Beyond on the other hand, considering Quantic's long development cycles and the technology that goes into their 'movies' and demos.... that could be an exciting next gen prospect, if we hadn't already seen some gameplay demoing...
