Good lord that's a silly question. Of course a product sold at stores for consumers needs a selling point or "gimmick".

Those aren't bad things or bad terms.

Andrespetmonkey1388d ago

What is meant is some sort of major "gimmick" as you said. I'm talking about the equivalent to the Wiimote for the Wii for example... not something comparatively minor like linux support and "it plays blu-rays" (PS3 at launch)

mrbojingles1388d ago

I don't think Linux support would sell anyone an extra console personally, but that's a bit off topic.

Blu-Ray support and a new controller are both "gimmicks" and hooks to draw in the consumer. Just because some might view one of them more negatively doesn't mean they aren't both "gimmicks".

A gimmick is a unique characterstic of a product that makes it stand out. All products have them, and should always have them. The more universal, like-able and attention grabbing your gimmick is the better.

All I want in my next box is awesome games. PS4 should suffice for awhile.

@Andre blu-ray a gimmick,you don't need 5 DVD to play one game,just one ole blu-ray.

Personally I think there will be some unique selling point ans both consoles will take different roads.

Last time around it was primarily about games and a pad. Expect something completely different next gen.

In my opinion there's no need for next gen consoles anytime soon...

All I know is unless they drop support completely for the ps3, I don't see me diving into any game on the ps4, especially if it comes out on the ps3 too. I'm perfectly fine with this gens gaming. I need something more than cross game chat to make me buy one.

Yes, i think for sony ( sorry my favorite console company) need to make games like beyond two souls, heavy rain , uncharted, the last of us. Furthermore, i hope sony or another company please releases something with on demand video/gaming.

I just want games! Could not careless about all the other crap like Netfilx, Hulu etc etc..

If they both have good exclusive games along with some cool bells and whistles but mainly exclusive ip's ready to go at launch then they will sell well.
