No Need For Next-Gen As Sony Shows Gamescom A Good Time | TheSixthAxis

TSA: "PlayStation’s E3 showing was, with the benefit of hindsight and the hyperbole in the bin, a bit of a washout. It was poorly paced, lacked big hitters and managed to skip over the Vita with an almost risible sense of disdain. Here in Europe, Sony’s long-held bastion and to a crowd eager to see just what SCEA danced around and over, the platform holder give us exactly what we wanted."

I think it's time for PS3 to pick up speed. Do you guys remember when N64 came out, but PS1 was still releasing a lot of games? Most developers want new consoles to come out, but the console giants seem like they are slowing down on purpose.

Pick up speed? there's loads of exclusive games for the PS3 coming out, and even more third party games.

jc485732164d ago (Edited 2164d ago )

it's not just about exclusives. I still want to see more games with heart or at least something that encourages thinking. Most games just feel like they're just plain old action games, which is why I'm looking forward to games like "The Last of Us." I want to think and feel, not just shoot my way through to get B ending. If it's exclusives we're talking about, then I don't think we have enough variety or at least something new.

This is one of the many reasons why I like Naughty Dog because they can break boundaries like developers used to do back in the days. Even if the console was hard to work with, they knew their ways around it. Just take a look at the library of ps1 and ps2. They continued to make games on consoles that were deemed inferior to other systems. I have a feeling Sony is aiming for that longevity.

Just now seeing tearaway, and I have to say Media Molecule are absolute geniuses. That game has love written all over it. Obtaining MM has proven to be a huge boost to Sony.

Tearaway is badass, aside from the yelling at your screen part, and Rain also looks really nice, it has that magical Japanese touch.

I did get the feeling that Sony may be further away from releasing their follow up console. I would question why they would willingly allow themselves to release last when it comes to next gen consoles?

Most of their top developers all seem to be working on PS3 or Vita right now, which is great, but if they are just keeping interest high in the current generation by playing a bit of possum, then it could mean if the PS4 did launch next year, it'd launch with a lackluster lineup.

We know Nintendo kicks of next gen this year, its looking like a certainty that Microsoft will probably release the Xbox 720 next holiday, the only company that hasn't had any leaks or even any solid rumors is Sony, and knowing Sony is usually the company that has the loosest lips, it does point to the PS4 probably releasing in 2014, still might see a 2013 release in Japan though.

Polyphony, Naughty Dog team #1 (Uncharted 1 & 3), Sucker Punch, Guerrilla games. They are working on PS4 games without a doubt

HammadTheBeast2164d ago

You got it right. The teams that haven't shown anything at Gamescom are most likely working on next gen games, they usually don't sit and twiddle their thumbs.

Burning_Finger2164d ago (Edited 2164d ago )

I'm still not ready for for next gen. I'm still enjoying tons of PS3 games that I bought for $9.99 at best buy.

Daver2164d ago (Edited 2164d ago )

You are not the one giving them much money anyway... XD

sprinterboy2164d ago

Have to agree, ps3 has alot left hence I didnt mind the launch price imo cause it ends up being cheap in the long run, new games with new ideas and uses with vita etc, hell I would pay £500 for ps4 cause I know it would be a long term investment which gamers seem to forget. Sometimes I feel people have the wrong hobby.

Qrphe2164d ago

I'm in no hurry at all for the other next-gen system.

morkendo232164d ago (Edited 2164d ago )

im with you on that no hurry.
if ps4 comes out with photorealism graphic and low-end ps4 model 789.00 high-end ps4 889.00 im not in any kind of hurry to pay that staggering price again.

Protagonist2164d ago

Me neither. My PS3 and my next gen "PSP" are great atm.
