Why Sony won next gen already (Part 2)

228d ago ... So 5 months passed since my last blog about this topic http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/zod18/521570 and I think it's a good time to recap it with everything that happened since then. Last time, I wrote about all three but this time I'm leaving Nintendo out since the next gen launch is just around the corner and Nintendo is not really ready to compete with Xbox One and PS4 yet. (I might touch...

How cheap do you expect?

248d ago ... This is about the PS Vita and the price drop. Mainly my problem with any of this is that people ask for a price drop so often but the PS Vita has been on sale and clearance so many times now it might as well be a permanent price drop. You never see those same people in those articles celebrating that but instead just the same people in other articles asking for price drops over and over again w...

Handheld Gaming: Price Change

257d ago ... Nearly two years ago, I wrote a blog, here, about the PS Vita and the 3DS having a common problem; which was they are not phones (1). I argued the rise of mobile devices has made these products seem unattractive to the mass market as many people can buy small cheap games to play on the go (with this devices being in direct competition) while getting the console experience at home. The general r...

How Sony Won Next-Gen In 120 Minutes

318d ago ... After the mixed reviews Microsoft conference got, everyone naturally turned their eye to the next big conference; Sony. Speculations were running rampant, even more so than it was before the platform was first introduced back in late February and expectations were going higher and higher every passing minute, leaving everyone asking the same question at the end; will Sony be able to deliver? Th...

Sony’s E3 Show and Rating

318d ago ... Sony has had it easy thus far with the PS4, thanks to the competition’s fumbles. So did they take it easy at E3 or did they kill it. Jack Trenton: Yes by this point due to all the gifs the PlayStation bosses are celebrities. Jack comes out and thanks the fans and gives a quick overview of the PS3, PS Vita, and PS4. It’s nice, but let’s get to the games Jack. Batman Origins Counter Sp...

PS3: Weak Start...Strong Finish

414d ago ... With the launching of Sony's new Playstation 4 console later in the year, many people feel the era of the Playstation 3 is coming to an end. Now its no secret Sony continues to support their consoles well after the successor is released so by no means does anyone believe the PS3 will be simply retired after November, however beginning in 2014, Sony's main focus will shift over to the PS4....

Next-gen? Stop doodling and do your homework!

421d ago ... It was back in 2010 when Nintendo showed off the 3DS that I thought to myself "Goodness, I'm sick of this nonsense. Can we just get back to the games?" No, hang on a second. It was the year before, when PS Move and "Natal" (Kinect) were both showcased that I began to get sick of the game industry's hardware obsession. Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft were all going down a dark path...a path tha...

Could Killzone: Shadow Fall be the worst Killzone yet?

423d ago ... Upon seeing the Killzone: Shadow Fall gameplay reveal during Sony’s press conference I was both amazed and apprehensive. Graphically, it looks amazing, but despite this I still have a few anxieties regarding this new and exciting title from Guerrilla. My concerns do not come about from what the demo looked like, or what it was being run on, as with other people; I am sure graphically it will be...

A PC Gamer’s thoughts on the PS4

424d ago ... A couple of days ago the PS4 was announced and Sony gave us some information about the specs of the console and some of the games coming out for it. I guess it’s no secret that the two loudest groups on N4G are PS3 and PC gamers and this reveal caused a lot of arguing between the two groups. Unfortunately the arguments laid out by both groups were less than informed and intelligent debates and...

Marketing For PlayStation Meeting Has Been Superb

430d ago ... It would be an understatement to say Sony's recent marketing has been poor. From the early PlayStation 3 (PS3) commercials to the lack of any marketing push for certain titles (ex. Sly Cooper Thieves in Time), the company has struggled to get a grasp on how best to market many of its products. As I discussed last week, Sony has a unique opportunity on their hands with this week's Futre of PlayS...

Top Ten Vita Retail Games of the Last Twelve Months

430d ago ... With the one year anniversary of the Playstation Vita's official North American launch being only three days away, I thought now would be a good opportunity to take a look back at what I think have been the Playstation Vita's ten strongest and most important retail games of the last twelve months. When Sony launched the Playstation Vita back on February 22, 2012, there was one game that wit...

Marketing Campaigns - The Push up bras of the gaming industry (No sexist intentions)

433d ago ... In Which ever way you look at it and whether you agree or disagree, advertising in most cases is the prime deciding factor in a products success. Look at Sony with the PS Vita a powerful device with a above average library of games, that is suffering in terms of sales due to Sony's marketing campaign for the device, or rather lack thereof. Before a marketing team embarks on their marketing c...

20th February, whats coming?

444d ago ... See the future? Sure wish i could. Like Sony's usual antics, they've released a teaser http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-3GMHIgR-U for an upcoming date. This one being the 20th of February, the date for the supposed reveal of the PS4. But wait, is it the PS4 though? Sony hasnt exactly confirmed anything, just the usual hype from people online and unconfirmed rumors. I for one a...

Features the PlayStation 4/Orbis should have

463d ago ... With the PS4 rumored to be releasing this year, and on the verge of being announced, I thought it would be cool to produce a list of features it should have. Feel free to add/modify, comment, etc... Backwards Compatibility (PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP/PSV?) A problem the PS3 has been struggling with, and a problem it looks like the PS4 will be struggling with as well. It was hard for the PS3 to emul...

E3 2013 Predictions

469d ago ... E3 predictions that aren't too absurd (like Jak IV and a new Syphon Filter, Versus 13, and Agent) SONY: Shows much needed support for PS Vita, including always welcomed console ports along with some fresh new IP's that I believe will change peoples minds. I think they will update the firmware with some handy new features as well. On the PS3 side of things, they will give Ubisoft some more sho...

Five ways Sony can bounce back Next-Gen

551d ago ... I get a lot of hate from Sony fanboys in the comments I leave on Sony articles. Most may think I hate Playstation products the way I come off sometimes, but that is the furthest thing from the truth. I've enjoyed many Playstation games and for the most part all of Sony's consoles. I'm just a realist. I am not an easily persuaded, mind controlled fanboy. I tell it how it is. If I like one ga...

Could Xbox 360 help with Sony's Crossbuy?

610d ago ... There were many reports of Sony's PS Vita and PS3 cross buy announcement at Gamescom this month but there were many more people asking if it would garner any 3rd party support. Also upon reading that porting to the Vita from Ps3 is a challenge due to differences in hardware, the Vita having more PC based parts as opposed to proprietary hardware of the Ps3. Could this in fact mean that a t...

Have you forgotten the core, Microsoft?

677d ago ... First of all, sorry for any grammar failes in this blog. I just used Google translate to translate it from Norwegian to English. I've been a PlayStation guy in my entire life. I have a PlayStation 2 that I got for Christmas a few years ago, I have two PSPer, a PS Vita and PlayStation 3 I've always liked Sony for their focus on the game and especially the core players. For about 3 years ag...

3DS not doomed...Just has competition.

949d ago ... Its no secret that 3DS has had the best start but that does not mean it can't finish off great. Don't believe me? Why look at the PS3, but that's another topic. Articles flying left and right claiming Nintendo's downfall is near. No, no its not folks. Nintendo just saw its mistakes and decided it needs corrections. Its not doomed. This holiday will be big for it, Mario, Starfox, Mario:And frie...

Sony vs Nintendo : a battle we've seen before

1005d ago ... Today Sony and Nintendo are nearly on equal footing in terms of how they run their business in this gaming industry. They both have highly successful closed platform mobile devices. They both make similar sales month over month and they both have shown their hand for what the next generation [of portables] will offer. The Nintendo 3DS is home to some N64 classics such as The Legend of Zelda...
