Article: Pave The Way For Next Gen Console Gaming –
Very nicely written.
I have a couple other thoughts that I will add in little while (so as not to run late getting to work ).
I agree with the writer SceneButNotHeard, that perhaps after the release of the Orbis, the PS3 scene could stretch it's legs and bring many new advancements to such said scene.
All I can say is you can probably forget about being able to soft mod the new Playstation. The epic goof that lead to the 3.55 private keys being found will likely not happen again.
Unfortunately, I see Original Drive Emulation being the future.
Don't be so sure. With keeping in mind that it's all rumour, both the Orbis and Durango use x86 CPU parts. While that doesn't inherently mean there's any security issues to be had, it does mean that the "talent" pool of hackers that may be interested is substantially higher.

@CurlyBobb Dreaming to...
"When will the 'Orbis' be hacked?"
Well maybe never.. look at 3DS for example. Nobody managed to hack the 3D side of things yet.
Can probably forget any kind of media on this... it will likely be digital content only. No ODE.
Sony won't allow games to be backed up on the hard drive and be played without a disc in, no matter how much security is on it, just in case someone finds a hack for that bult-in feature. Look at Microsoft. If I remember right the 360 allows you to backup the entire disc on to the hard drive but you still need the disc in to play the game.

Imagine how good a console would be if no time and money was spent on building security for it. They simply don't need security... Look at PC games. Very easily hacked, usually the day of release or before but still very profitable. The only reason console games make more money is because more people actually play console games than PC. An example of this is the guys who make The Witcher games. Their PC games don't even have any DRM you can pirate it with no cracks yet they make plenty of money from their PC games.
Lets hope this time round the include at least 4GBs of RAM and VRAM (should be 8GB for both).
Also, they should at least allow developers to release patches or re-release of some great games that run with higher textures at 1080p and not the fake 720p which is really 640 upscaled.
Imagine Red Dead Redemption finally running at real hi res 1080p.
