PS4 Impact and Possible Games

Game Nacho: We're sure you’ve heard about the possibility that the PS4 is going to be announced on February 20th by Sony. With this knowledge of the possible PS4 announcement we decided to go a step further and take a look at what impact the PS4 could have on the console industry and what possible games could be released for the system. (Industry, PS3, PS4, Sony)

If nothing else, Sony has captured the interest of gamers and the games industry in general and has generated a lot of excitement - which is exactly what a teaser should do.

This is great marketing by Sony (assuming this is for PS4). I can't believe I used "great" and "marketing" in the same sentence when referring to Sony :)

It feels like the buzz created by the PS1 back in the day.

If it is announced I will pre order that day...we know it wont be anything under 400$ so I will make sure its paid for before release

Will also preorder it.

God damn the internet and gaming community is going craaaaazy. I've never seen this many articles, threads and comments on a subject related to hardware before.

I want a resistance: fall of man reboot for launch. That would make me so happy.

Omg that would be amazing! To bad if it did happen it would most likely be a CoD infected crap shoot just like the R3 multiplayer = /
Conzul  +   939d ago
Meh, rather have Resistance 4 and be a Chimera or a Hybrid...or a 3rd species that jumps into the mix.

Only The Last Guardian, everything else is not in my interest (not meant in a bad way).

I would love to see that Agni's philosophy tech demo become a real launch game. That feels
Like a game that could rejuvenate square enix and help kick off nextgen in style. Add in kh3 and
Release versus 13 within the first six months. ONLY ON PLAYSTATION 4!
ThyMagicSword  +   939d ago
Difficult, they were not able to create one good game this gen, why would they suddenly change "philosophy"?
j-blaze  +   939d ago
so let me ask this question, when FFXIII went multiplat you blamed both MS and SE for the stupid cut contents, now "if" VersusXIII is going to release next gen there are big chances it will be multiplat but "if" that happens what your excuse will be i wonder?

anyway, i'm so excited for PS4! so glad the era of that slow and hard to develop for console with bad memory called ps3 is going to end

@ Chaoslegion

well, sorry i meant to say "you guys", also, your reply didn't make any sense but yeah whatever

First of all if your gonna debate with me at least respond with an intelligent response. I never said anything about blaming ms or se don't know where u pulled that out of your ass from. And "If" they do release it I would anticipate it being a Ps4 exclusive since Sony looks to rock this gen and square seeing its potential as not a big risk from losing money on one system.

If se and other publishers see the ps4 as a early success based on positive media response and Early preorder numbers are crazy good than why not fully invest
And committ to a maximized exclusive game like Versus13? Cause since the ps4 is selling well u won't have to be strapped with extra development costs from another system and loss of a fan base since the game didn't meet expectations.

"so glad the era of that slow and hard to develop for console with bad memory called ps3 is going to end"

Although I'm glad that game development should no longer be an issue for developers as they were with PS3, if games with the scope of Ni no Kuni and Versus XIII can be produced on a 7-year-old, memory-bottlenecked piece of hardware, intensive games like BioShock Infinte run great ( http://www.kotaku.com.au/20... http://blog.eu.playstation.... and multiplatform parity is now more balanced than it has ever been, the "bad memory" and "hard to develop for" is not really an issue, since only the less than proficient developers are exposed.

I wonder how long this early PS4 praise is going to last for you j-blaze? Probably until you realise that Japanese games don't really make the struggling giant nearly as much as western games and then you blame them for your life's problems as usual, whilst praising Microsoft for the same things.

You know what, I could see them announcing FFVSXIII for the ps4.
smashcrashbash  +   939d ago
The worst part of this is that if it isn't the PS4 people will blame Sony for making people thinking it was the PS4 and not blame anyone else for jumping to conclusions. However we have heard from too many sources and the sudden increase of rumors regarding the PS4 points at that direction. Sony would not be gathering up press and investors just to show them some game or reinvention of the VITA or PS3.They could have just as easily just posted that kind of information on the net without all that fuss. It has to be something really important even if for some reason it isn't the PS4.
Seraphemz  +   939d ago
Now im wondering what the impact would be if the 20th is NOTHING to do with the PS4....lol
clintagious650  +   939d ago
The Last Guardian or FF Versus 13 release date along with some new gameplay would also be amazing. WTF is square enix doing? Ive been gone for almost a year & still hasnt released FF Versus 13? Man & the ps4 is about to be released. Hurry the eff up square enix.
saimcheeda  +   939d ago
Its a pretty exciting time to be a gamer right now id say
Everyday we get news about next gen consoles and im just waiting for the official announcements and the first unveiling!

Sony seems eager to erase past mistakes by announcing THE nextgen system first and possibly releasing first before Microsoft. Specs would seem to suggest that it will be way easier to develop for than the ps3. Maybe that's way square enix couldn't make "one good game" this gen.

Pricing will also be critical this time around as well. I don't know if people are willing to pay $600 again if the thing isn't well equipped to justify the cost. If Sony does indeed and unveils the ps4
It will signal an aggressive nature and make for a preemptive strike that exhibits confidence.

Side note: Microsoft will be the victim of... SUBTANCE ABUSE!!!!! Hahahahah
BitbyDeath  +   939d ago
Motorstorm 4 plz
Jakens  +   939d ago
GT6 Please. God of War Please. And while I am at it, there are games over the years that have been announced but never heard from again. Bring those games on ASAP.

On topic: I'll be on N4G Feb 20 with crazy high hopes and an $900 down payment for Sony. (In the nicest way possible)
