American media to stop being bias for American made consoles to the point they spread untruths about Sony and hope to increase ad revenue by doing so

They aren't biased against nintendo. They are very successful here. Playstation products sell very well here in the US considering and you will never hear about it.

Sony needs to spread more money around IF they want to take a more mainstream approach here in the states.

MS giving many times more "gifts" to my gamestop employee friends is an example of how things work. This principle applies to the gaming media, etc. as well.

Sony will have to market more aggressively at launch or their competition will try to find a way to steal their hype. Actually, expect smear/doom articles to start rolling out any day now.

@clearlite because the American media don't see Nintendo as a hardcore gaming company to rival Microsoft...they see it as a kiddy company still putting out Mario's and kirbys etc

A timely launch date for this year.
15 to 20 games at launch across multiple genres.
Price of console should be no higher than $499.
Games to remain at $60 or lower.
Aggressive marketing both online and televised.

I'm just wondering how anyone could give you a disagree, everything you listed seems perfectly sound.

Also, PS3 backwards compatibility is a great idea because it would enable them to support the system for years to come and people with only PS4 wouldn't miss out either.

same guy disagrees with me apparently.

@miyamoto, hahahahahhaha

ps 1 2 3 backwards and all the free to play games compatibility is a must

SEN, PSN, PS Home, PS+ integrated to Gaikai cloud gaming to offer all ps 1 2 3 psp game library and services

That is an amazing gif lol
I'm sure Microsoft is going pretty crazy right about know too.
It feels like Sony caught everyone off guard with this.

Dat part when reggie come out from the crowd

hhahahahahhahahahahh

Yeah, pants down

Reggie's body was not ready, LOL!

I got this from Mr. Shuhei Yoshida himself on Twitter.

You guys should Tweet him from time to time.

LOL awesome pretty much sums up everything.

Godmars2901304d ago

Combining PS+ with Gaikai to bypass the BC issue, give people access to as much of the Playstaion's library over 15+ years, would be a nice thing to say the least.

Certainly wouldn't have the, "got no games" comment to fall on.

Except, given the licensing issues that have been going on this gen, don't expect to see the "entire" PS1/PS2/PS3 catalog available.

I saw that gif on twitter. I thought it was the funniest thing I ever seen, and then Reggie's face pops up.. I was probably choking for 5 minutes. Could not stop laughing. It really needs a soundtrack. What was that ID4?

I think it needs an affordable launch price and great launch titles.

DigitalSmoke1304d ago (Edited 1304d ago )

The only thing they need to do is continue the momentum they build with the PS3 just now, and work from there.

Sony said this generation isnt a race but a maraton, they proved to be right.
Microsoft wasn't able to put anything against Killzone's GFX GOW brutality or Uncharted's quality, nor PS+.
