no they wouldn't hype up a press conference then announce the ps4 randomly on youtube before then. though it would be awkward if someone at sony uploaded the ps4 video out of anticipation ahead of time.

on a side note i was told youtube is not a valid source when making a submission and got reported for it back when i first came to N4G can i have a bit of clarification on that please?

PS3 - is easily the greatest video game console of all time
kane_1371  +   422d ago
no, Playstation is.

PS3 is the spoiled brat that had everything for it.
It came in to be a success but had to struggle and wasn't used to, since the Grand dad had built this life of his with a success of over 100 mil consoles as well as the daddy did the same.

So it came in saying I AM A PLAYSTATION and realized it has to fight for its rights.
this made it a console with a legend of its own, a tail of hard work and success.
It is in a whole other level than just calling it the greatest of all time.

It is a Legend.
A console that the world deserved, but not a console that they needed, so they chased him and tried to destroy him....
Cause he is a savior, a Dark CONSOLE

I think PS3 was a bigger step up on PS2 then PS2 was over PS1.

What a great console the PS3 has been. Can't wait for PS4

If there's one thing that's embodied PS3 for me this gen it's LittleBigPlanet. I applaud Sony for their continued support for the risky but highly imaginative titles. PS3 had a lot of games that came under that umbrella. Which made PS3 the best in my opinion

Agree 100% (other than your game choice, mine would be Uncharted and a mix of others).

PS3 has been a joy to own and use and will still be good enough to keep around even after PS4 arrives (as a handy 3D BluRay player and older game system)

Bring on PS4!!! :)

Funny how the tides have changed and Sony throwing money at developers for exclusivity is now somehow a good thing.

LittleBigPlanet, Infamous, Resistance, Heavy Rain, etc were all original IP's created by independent developers. Sony's role was simply paying to deny the experience to a wider audience. You should be thanking the developers not Sony for the aforementioned IP's.

edit:

@BitbyDeath
Both Sony themselves and in turn their fans mocked the thought of paying any amount for exclusivity period.

"In the interview, Tretton said "We have a very different approach to exclusives than some of our competitors. We don't buy exclusivity. We don't fund development. We don't, for the lack of a better term, bribe somebody to only do a game on our platform.""

http://www.joystiq.com/2007...

@Estranged
The games were already being developed, they would have been published regardless, whether on consoles or on PC/Mac. You shouldn't be giving Sony credit for their hypocritical act of "bribing somebody" [see quote above].

You're probably thinking of timed-exclusives.

Nobody said boo when Alan Wake or Gears went exclusive to MS, same for the titles you mentioned being exclusive to Sony.
SoapShoes  +   422d ago
Oh I'll thank them for those games because without Sony taking the risk on them they never would have existed.

MM originally pitched the LBP idea to Microsoft but they declined due to their strict policies on Live. The others were funded by Sony and Sony was the only one to even want to chance publishing Heavy Rain.
Shadow Flare  +   422d ago
"Throwing money"?

Microsoft has more money then Sony and Nintendo made more money then Sony with the Wii and DS

So where are their LittleBigPlanet's, Journey, Heavy Rain, Last Guardian, Beyond, Flower, Pixeljunk etc. games?

Sony has shown more willingness to encourage these type of games

And in Media Molecules case, they went to Sony with their LBP idea and they loved that Sony totally got what they wanted to achieve. And Sony supported that fully. Look at Last Guardian. Any other company would have canned that by now but Sony is still supporting it.

Instead Microsoft threw their money at timed DLC ($50 million for GTA4 timed DLC was it?) and an eyetoy knock off while simultaneously giving their core fans the middle finger to focus on the casuals (as evident in the last 3 E3's)

And Nintendo has spent that money on....yet another console with old hardware, sold at a premium price, with no games. What did they spend their money on???

Looks like a play on words as Tretton is kind of right about them doing it differently.

Sony have a lot of 2nd party studios where as Nintendo and MS have none.

I'm not sure on the exact methodology being used but we do know it means a contract of sorts where Sony own the franchise and pay the bills for its creation.

Looks like PR talk though as the contract essientially does what he says they do not... just accomplished differently.

@Shadow Flare

If each console were a mirror image where exactly would the competition be?

Thatgamecompany created Flower, Journey and Flow not Sony and they were/are bound by a 3 game exclusivity deal, which almost bankrupted them, the same is probably true for many other PS3 exclusives (bar 1st party, going near bankrupt).

Sony are pushing exclusives because third party exclusives are near extinct (something Sony relied on the past two generations), PS3 third party support is not as strong as the Xbox 360 and buying a PS3 for anything other than Blu-ray and exclusives is pointless as multiplatform games are generally worse on the system and the online, though free, is still lacking.

Sony are relying on the strategy used by Sega with the Dreamcast, and we all know how that turned out.

You mention MS paying $50 million for timed-exclusive DLC but missed the overall outcome. Not only did it actually "help" fund GTA4 for multiple platforms, but the DLC was not restricted to a single console despite the initial investment. How is that a negative?

Nintendo and MS turned down Media Molecule, guess who took them. They take risks on developers because they see potential there and are very helpful in their growth, that's why so many second party developers love to create games on their system.

If it weren't for Sony we wouldn't see the full potential of these developers. Sony gives them the ability to showcase to us gamers, whereas the developers gets the tools to grow and not be stunted like some other companies do to developers

Agreed. I will keep mine, even after the PS4 released. I am curious if we will see great games for it even after the PS4 is out. I don't expect BC, and there are still games I haven't played yet. If they'll have PS4 remote play, that will be a keeper anyway and stay at least as a media hub and blue ray player.

I'd love to see Colony Wars, G-Police or Warhawk with proper single player campaigns.

As a fan of the original I was so looking forward to Warhawk after that reveal trailer with 100's of ships and a big Mothership, then it turned into an MP game.

@Ace
Mahap it was, but the game WAS sp originally after all so original fans havent got any lovin yet. I think SP gamers have waited long enough and we should have a great Warhawk SP Campaign by now.

Shadow Flare  +   422d ago
I've been playing warhawk again lately and I honestly think its simultaneously the most utterly mental and ridiculous multiplayer experience I've ever played yet the best multiplayer game I've ever played as well

I only ever play in the official severs for CTF, 32 player rooms. And the game is insane. For anyone who hasn't played it, the maps are huge btw. Yet within seconds of spawning you can get shot down. If you start flying, within seconds the enemy team is onto you and shooting you down. When you try to spawn in an area with a warhawk, someone's taken it by the time you've ran to it. It's insane

Yet at the same time is so exciting. I've never played a more intense and adrenaline pumping game in my life. Trying to fight to capture zones and then fighting to bring back the enemy flag over such huge maps, by running or car or tank, with your teammates and wingmen all protecting you, is utterly exhilarating. You really get the sense of teamwork and managing to get the flag out of enemy base makes your heart smack around your ribcage like its pinball.

The strategy, awareness, planning, teamwork that you need and learn through this game is amazing. I've had a friend on my psn list for years because I met him when I first played warhawk and we always look out for each other and work together to get the flags. So he'll be hiding somewhere in a car and the moment I've got the flag, he drives up and I jump down and straight in the car and drive off. There's been a few times where there's been no cars available and he has the flag so I fly down in the warhawk and he jumps on top of the plane, and I fly him to safety in hover mode while he's standing on top of the plane and then capture the flag

Utterly awesome game, still as good as ever, still as ridiculously mental as ever, still the best multiplayer game I've ever played. Love it.

Imagine remaking the series in HD, we don't have many space shooters that are that good for a very long time so i really hope we get to see it again.

Still have Colony Wars 1 & 2...lost 3 which is still a sad thing for me. Colony Wars 1 with its James Earl Jones soundalike, Colony Wars 2 with its epic gameplay.Oh good times!
vickers500  +   422d ago
Warhawk doesn't need single player, it's a multiplayer game now, and a damned good one. Besides, we already got a taste of what Warhawk single player would be like(from starhawk), and it was terrible, and I wouldn't want the devs making another one, they need to just stick to what people want and what they're good at, the multiplayer side.
BitbyDeath  +   422d ago
@vickers, the multiplayer in starhawk wasn't very good either though.

Warhawk is the best online game i've ever played.
Hope we get a new one or a 1080P/4K version on the new console.

I still remember the earth shattering Boom you would hear when you finally destroyed a large ship.

Never before had I heard sound like that in a videogame. You could feel it more than hear it and it gave you that huge sense of an immense structure being destroyed. Even the Deathstar blowing up didnt sound that good. Truly epic.

@Vickers
Starhawks SP was just a tacked on expanded tutorial. I want a fleshed out campaign with huge battle like the the reveal trailer teased.

Its ok, I know its never gonna happen but the original PSOne Warhawk was a great game and I want to revisit it in a reboot.

@Bitby

Yeah, I didn't like it either, but I refrained from calling it terrible because I'm really not into the whole "build crap" gimmick that in my opinion ruined the mp, but I think there are some who like it.

"Starhawks SP was just a tacked on expanded tutorial. I want a fleshed out campaign with huge battle like the the reveal trailer teased."

That's what it may have been in truth, but to them it was their best effort. I followed the game online before release quite a lot, and they were really excited about the campaign and the story, they really thought what they had was good at the time. It was annoying at how much they promoted the campaign online. But look it turned out. The content that was there was very mediocre, and dropping the multiplayer would probably just mean a longer, but not better, game. They would be taking a huge gamble attempting to do it right this time, to make a good sp, a gamble that honestly isn't worth it and nobody but a very select few want them to take.

They should just focus on multiplayer from now on. Warhawk had some of the best multiplayer out there. I'm dying for a real sequel to the ps3 version.

Even though Sony struggle at the beginning of this gen with PS3. The PS3 continue to grow with amazing exclusives for the hardcore audience while introducing a 1:1 motion technology that was not force on the consumer but given as an option unlike another company who has abandoned the hardcore audience to chase the casuals. With amazing games & franchises like Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted, Killzone, Ratchet & Clank, LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo 5, God Of War, Heavy Rain, inFamous, & more the PS3 is the only one still delivering hardcore games even with next gen consoles coming. Just like the PS1, PS2, PSP, and soon to be mine PS Vita I do not regret purchasing a PlayStation 3 nor would I ever sale it.

Long Live Play

In all honesty even before the release of PS4 on the 20th ( 2 days to go.. ) I do think/believe that the PS3 is by far the most significant and most highly progressive of all the consoles that Sony has produced.

The PS4 is a carry-over but with more brimming hardware tech, higher-res, newly designed control pad which I'm sure we are all going to love to bits.

People saying the PlayStation 3 was disapointing?

through the years things have been brutal, the console war this gen was brutal for everyone, but nobody got it as hard as the PlayStation gamers did, sure Xbox 360 fancy feature this, fancy feature that. Yet.. the reason I've been playing my PS3 for so long is quite simple, the games.

The games we've been given this gen simply cannot be compared to by other exclusives, I've rarely been given a "Wow.." moment this gen, but whenever they did happen, I was playing either MGS4 whilst watching that Raiden vs Vamp cutscenes, or God of War 3 when I was fighting that HUGE Titan! or Uncharted 2 when I was standing on that huge building looking out at the landscape.

For me, PS3 delivered the games & that's why I'm a PlayStation gamer.

PS4, I expect the same. :)

In the beginning Sony made quite a bit of mistakes with the launch of the PS3. However over time kudos to them to digging themselves out of the hole they put themselves in & delivering what the PS3 should've been from the very beginning.

Hopefully they learned a lot from this gen on what not to do & maybe just maybe lead the industry once again that saw the industry at its very best. Hopefully we will not see an inferior product drag a system down & that we will see the best of both systems from the very beginning.

-Gespenst-  +   422d ago
Watching this video makes you realise that while the Ps2 era had games, the Ps3 era had in the place of lots of games, loads of other things. It had PSN, PsPlus, the Move, Cloud Saving, downloadable titles. And yet, speaking in equivalents, I don't think the Ps3 has done as well as the Ps2. There's been such a rush to innovate and introduce new ideas. The Ps2 was simple and unadorned and was one of the best consoles ever made, with one of the best game catalogues ever.

I feel like technology is making people ADD. All these companies with their super-frequent updates and new services don't seem to realise that none of this shit is really THAT important. Just give us a console with loads of good games and it should succeed.

And I'm not speaking out against Sony or the playstation. It's a pattern that's emerging. Technology is just moving way too fast and there's this scramble to be the best most profitable company, and to do this, for some reason, you have to be relentlessly innovative. All these bells and whistles feel so shallow, like they haven't had time to mature. I hope for the Ps4, Sony just cools off with all the ridiuclous features and lets them become something more substantial. Instead of introducing more and more stuff, just work with ALL the stuff they've got and make some damn games.

Yeah it feels like the actual gaming was neglected and compensated by things like VidZone, Motion control, NetFlix and TV streaming etc...

Hopefully now all that is in place and PSN is an established thing now, they will have the foundation and can build on that with more / better / FUN games.

Or maybe they'll just skip the handled's all together after all they are announcing a home console not a portable device.
