I suggest you go through your blog and look for instances where you misused "it's." "It's" is a contraction that stands for "it is" and not the possessive term "its."

For example, your title should read "The PS4 will help the industry with one of its biggest problems."

I decided to make the comment here rather than report your blog because, although there are some minor grammar issues, I find no reason to report the blog on something silly like that. We all make those kinds of mistakes.

On Topic: I personally think that the increasing focus on social aspects in gaming is becoming a crutch for lack of imagination in other areas, and that that's an industry wide problem. Facebook is irrelevant to gaming in the same way that Myspace is irrelevant to social networking. That's just me though.

Agreed. It's a good blog with a few grammatical mistakes.

"And rightfully so, because industry wise it just makes so goddamn sense"
"It doesn't take a crystal ball to realize how well does social media can impact a business"

It is a good topic though. This "console war" is ridiculous and is going to end with one company having a monopoly in the industry. Why are we asking for less choice?

I am sort of baffled on this myself. I don't think any reasonable person who enjoys videogames would want that.

Gamers aren't asking for less choice, only fanboys are.
Whatisit you sayin?

You could have PM'd him instead of outing him in the posts.

On Topic:
I do agree with you about the social part. I think it's more of a gimmick than anything else. What happens when the fad of Facebook diminishes just like Myspace?
DragonKnight  +   945d ago
Yeah that's true. That's my bad.

We never had Facebook on our old consoles and never should

Then you don't worry about Facebook. I don't even use Facebook, but what I don't understand is why so many focus the social aspect of PS4 on Facebook alone. It seems clear to me that the revamped PSN itself should be the focal point of the social networking. If it isn't livestreaming, its the friend stream on PSN, if it isn't the friend stream, its cross video chat or hot potato with the virtual controller or sharing items for games through the network. You get the point.

I personally don't see how the social aspects will really change actual game play, and to that end they aren't that interesting to me.

However, from a marketing standpoint I think it's a brilliant move on Sony's part to open up the world of gaming. Nintendo did this with the Wii and making it more accessible to the mainstream, and for that they should be given props. Sony on the other hand is going to be taking gaming and making it less of what it has been, a kid's hobby(perceived not factual), and make it into a socially acceptable past time.

Social media, such as Facebook or MySpace, may die out one day, but I don't think it should be considered a fad. It's been around over a decade, and has only gotten bigger. The need that people have to connect with others is huge, regardless of medium, and in this case the online aspect is just a means to an end. None of this will die out within the PS4's lifetime at least.

In the meantime, there is no reason to not take advantage of it. Luckily for me, not being terribly social online, it is optional, and will remain so until there is a compelling reason game play wise for me to change my outlook on it.

Well i take a good advice when the the one who correct me doesnt sound like an ego boosted douche.

You kind of sound like that no offence, you must realize not many people talk english so be mindful of that okay ;).
DragonKnight  +   945d ago
No I know. It wasn't my intention to come off as arrogant. I really was just trying to be helpful.

@A draginknight

Thats cool be sure to correct me when you can :)

@ DragonKnight : So reporting his blog for a few Gramatical errors is being helpful? I know you didn't but if you did you would be an even bigger douche than you were by correcting him in such a rude manner in public.

What an arsey comment.

Thanks for the approval DragonKnight.
I know you were trying to help and that's perfectly fine. English is my second language but I do the best I can and hope to get better over time. Sure maybe the approach wasn't the best but it is alright. =)

On topic: I for one think that by focusing on the social aspect of gaming, this approach will bring the industry to be more of the socially acceptable form of entertainment it needs to be. Gaming will always need new gamers, and it's getting those gamers sure enough. But they aren't buying consoles, they are playing on their ipads and facebook browser games.

Thanks for not insulting me the way some have chosen to do. In the future I'll be more discrete. Your blog deserved the approval based on its content anyway. You do very well with your English, to the point where none would be able to say with 100% certainty that you do not speak it natively without you volunteering that information.

On Topic: It may have the effect of bringing gaming into a more acceptable light, but it may also have the effect of reducing the quality of gaming as well. I hope that doesn't happen.

I was also thinking the same thing. How did this get approved? "Industry wise?" No capitalization, profanity, and rambling tangents. I am not really sure what the "problem" is that he is referring to and why is there a crying baby as a pic?
