All of the Sony ELITE studios should do what Mm and GG are doing and develop games for psvita and ps4 at the same time, i was stunned to know they were using only 15 people to develop Tearaway and the rest of the studio is working on another new IP.

I'm buying it first day and I've never seen gameplay. I think next gen ps4 will be ahead of the Xbox because of the massive exclusives Sony has and the new ones they'll release

Given the option of Xbox 720 with pay for xbl with little exclusives or Sony PlayStation 4 with free psn, a lot of quality exclusives I think most will choose ps4.

Sony PlayStation 4 will most likely be the most powerful because Sony always add cutting edge tech not available on other devices and Sony normally don't just sell a product but the future. When I say future I mean they sell things that are suppose to be relevant years after release. Also the ps4 will be made to work with their hdtvs they'll release or has been released like the 4k res version. The ps4 has to be powerful enough to help push 4k in the future.

Sony always does well with exclusive IP's, but their online service won't even be close to what Xbox 720's is.

If you play games online, it's 100% worth it to pay the $50 every 12 months.

That is $10 less than the cost of a new game.

Skip on on one game per year and you now have paid for your online.

That and the online community with xbox is more decicated to always being on, therefore there are always tons of people playing which means it's easy to find a game.

The Negative is that since it's so popular, you have to deal with all the douche's and little kids who think they are internet tough.

It's a give and take but It's worth it for me at at least.

I can say that xbox 360 needs a LBP type of game.

I just want to create stuff. I have forge world coming up in Halo 4, which is going to be cool, but it's not the same.

@ fanboy

Don't be a fanboy of a brand but a fan boy of quality and logic.

Whatever xbl has over psn this gen the psn will adopt next gen.
Justifying paying for a service that you can get elsewhere for free is silly. Xbl cost the price of a game.

@Hatsune-Miku WOW you really are in love with sony!

Anyway I hope this new IP is one of the PS4 launch titles lets start the next gen of gaming with the right foot. I guess is safe to assume this game will have some sort or crossplay feature.

@3-4-5 good luck paying for something you already pay for when you bought the game

Hatsune-Miku1906d ago (Edited 1906d ago )

I'm not in love with Sony but I like to use logic with everything.

I have all consoles released in this gen and I know logically that ps3 is the best console for core gamers in general. Some might like a few games only for other consoles Like halo gears, Mario, Zelda and whatever but the fact that a systems main function is catered to the most means its the best.

While Sony PlayStation is known for a multitude of quality exclusive IPs, the xbox and Wii are known for only a few and that is ok.

If you ask most consumers that buy cars which car is better between the 2008 Toyota Camry or a 2008 KIA I'm quite sure most would choose the Toyota. If you ask which car they'd rather have in the future because of track record most would choose 2013 Toyota Camry over the 2013 KIA without ever seeing or hearing about any of them.

When most people say they prefer the ps3 I think they like to play the multitude of exclusives. When someone says they prefer the xbox I'm thinking they like halo, or gears. It's fine to prefer even the Atari 2600 but in todays modern society, ps3 offers the most to core gamers without a doubt. I'm a core gamer to its only logical that I prefer the ps3 and not the xbox because I bought it first and made friends on it first. I play the nintendo Wii because of Zelda, Mario and I play the xbox because of gears and fable.I have a silver account on xbl because I don't want to set a precedent for Microsoft to hike up xbl price next gen. More people should stop paying for free services offered elsewhere on xbl. To each their own

Yes they have been in concept and R&D for about 18 months now....

I wish there was a betting line on if it will be unique/innovative/stylish/non- generic/ and fun as Hell...

When I first saw LBP shown at GDC a few years ago it was and still is the best pleasant surprise I have seen in gaming. It took me my total surprise, and to this day they still have me wanting more anything from Media Molecule...

A open Wold act/adv/platformer with RPG elements? Zeldaesque? Quessing can go on forever, but one thing I know is that it will be "special"...

Don't even need to see/hear anything, I will be there DAY 1...

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME1906d ago

oh my gosh, there's so many, i love my ps3

DontShoot-Me-Bro1906d ago

no doubt this is 100% for PS4.

Conzul1906d ago

Next gen launch I hope.

Freak of Nature1906d ago

And what a launch that would be...They have been digging into it for a good 18 months now, and by the end of next year that would be over 30 months of dev time... It could very well be a launch title for the PS4...I sure hope so...
