This articile is garbage. How many times people buy a system or a game even and end up liking it ? Or how many times do we play a video game, and not like it but still play it anyway. This article is dumb. I bet this author has every ps system, every PS 1 game. He's probably mad he couldnt play videos games for a month and a half. I have xbox360 and the reason why I got it is because my ps3 died. But I still like the ps3, and im probably going get ps4 when it comes out. Any time someone puts so much effort in hating something they actually like it better than you or me.

Sony is in a great position in my opinion. All the IP that can become PS4 IP (as well as new IP)...I don't think Sony is who you need to worry about.

I read it and gave my opinion on it. Darren haven't included many facts that i hope his next article is more professional.

this so stupid, the thing hasn't even been announced yet, we don't even know if it really exist, we don't know absolutely nothing, all the things people say are just speculations and rumors, until something is announced there no point in any of this articles, they are just lame and stupid, seems like some people are desperate for hits

The PS4 will fail because douchebags like you write such shit articles stating so. Seriously whats wrong with people? Why do you have to predict such negativity, and about ones failure?

IF they even make one :P it will be the top spec console as sony always tries to put the best hardware out there. hopefully its markedly better than new xbox just to stop any arguments off the bat.
RonaldRaygun  +   1218d ago
Almost nothing is known about the PS4 at this point. Isn't this article a bit premature?
WeskerChildReborned  +   1218d ago
Oh yea let's assume it will fail when we don't even know much about it. -.-

PS3 sure is getting a lot of hate lately.

Hope Sony learned a lot of lessons this gen.

I know I'll be playing Wii U till next gen xbox/ps are released.

Low sales? Don't care. As long as they keep pumping out games from different genres and not just FPS or motion controlled casual trash, I'm fine with it.

Nothing doom about this article people like to predict the future based on the negatives that happened with the PlayStation 3 this generation. Over priced console, no hard hitting games and a outdated online service. 3D nearly forced to the masses and the Hack that happend last year.

(before hitting disagrees keep reading)

You can say PS4 could be a success based on positive events that happen PSN+ gives real value to the gamer with an attach rate next to none. a continuous flow of innovative and fresh exclusive Ip's to feed the minds of the imaginative gamer. And now optional 3D support for whoever wants to use it.

No doom just another speculative article that can be written positively or negatively.

Fanboy? What a stupid, biased, opinionated article. Don't click on the link because it gives the loser of a writer money.

I'm not even a fan of Playstation but... I hate when people write dumb articles saying a system will fail before its even come out. There's way too many anti-nintendo, anti-sony, anti-microsoft articles on here. Lets try and write based on what actually happens for a change.

Sony is definitely going to learn from its mistakes. It will not bring a super expensive or overly high tech console this time. It doesn't have to win a format war which gave Sony money for blu ray printing. They will bring things like cross party chat for free so all the m$ fanboys will stop complaining over why xbox live is better and they have to spend 50$ a year just to be able to play online. Most likely will include bd-XL to make room for huge HD games.

The only way PS brand will fail is suddenly all PS fans world wide are murdered and unable to buy PS products. Yeah, like that is going to happen. Once you are a fan of PS, it is for life. Sony will have customers for generations to come.

It's a little too early to determine Doom n' Gloom for the PS3.

As far back as I can remember there has always been contending consoles on the market each gen dating as far back as the early 1970's.

What we have seen this gen is vs other gens is that there are less and less competing consoles. This gen we only have 3 major consoles. PS3, Wii and the 360. Last gen Sony dominated the market with Nintendo and the Xbox far behind in the dust thanks to 3rd party support. This gen Sony has underperformed vs. what they did last gen and the gen before that. MS have shown to be an unexpected "serious" contender. Deep pockets do help but can you blame a business using their resources to become a contender in a market? I sure as heck can't. The we have Nintendo who took a chance and it paid off.

Going into next gen, MS and Nintendo are in a comfortable position Economical wise. Sony on the other hand is not. Sony is currently trying to change their business strategies around and reshape their internal departments. They won't release another console that is leaps and bounds like the PS3 was to the PS2. They have lost a lot of exclusive 3rd party support, financially they can't launch a high end console at a high end price again going into next gen.

Sure Nintendo is launching the Wii U and we all know MS will be launching their 360 successor late 2013 or early 2014....but with Sony's current situation, loss of market share, tarnished brand name due to their TV department and PSN hacks, Early arrogance this gen and stiff competition going into next gen, lets face it, ALL EYES ARE ON SONY. We all want to see what Sony has up their sleeves. What are they going to release. How are they going to contend? Are they going to stick with the Cell? Are they going to upgrade PSN to turn a profit by charging?

This author seems to slant more on the negative side (possible for greater hits) rather than simply being objective. Yes Sony is in a bad position going into next gen but I would say it's far to early for doom n' gloom articles.

"It's a little too early to determine Doom n' Gloom for the PS3."

Sorry that should say PS4.

Good thing this article isn't from a reputable website; I might've gave a shit of their opinion.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1218d ago
Wait...did this article just say a console, that hasn't even been announced, that we have zero information about is going to fail...? Bravo 'journalism' bravo! *I didn't click the link*

Why o why do people care about these articles? Don't feed the hungry lambs. They will come for more.

It's been a few days since we've last seen an anti-Sony thread.

Great, a featured Troll article.
Straightupbeastly  +   1218d ago
I was gonna troll but I decided to be truthful instead..

Console gaming in general is doomed because of overpriced games, online passes, exclusive dlc and online fees. They're making things too confusing and expensive for casual gamers who can just get their gaming fix on their phone or Facebook which is easier and for free. Console gaming will soon be like PC gaming (hardcores only) if they do not react. The thing is, I don't think these big corporations will settle for hardcore money.
edgeofsins  +   1218d ago
It will fail as long as consumers base how good something is on sales and popularity and not on what actually counts... The console itself...
ScubaSteve1  +   1218d ago
so if he knows the ps4 will fail, can he tell me whats the numbers for the power ball and mega millions will come up for the state of Illinois

Do you drink a little, or smoke alot? The person who wrote this trash. Must have scored some of that new and improve CRACK. Damn Darren. Did the CEO of Sony slap your mother, and call her fat. LOL. Or did a japanese employee at E3 take your girl. because that article was OUTLANDISH.
