Why Gaming Needs PlayStation 4

PlayStation 4 is exactly what the video game industry needs right now. The pressure is on Sony to restore the faith its consumers are lacking, and to reaffirm the power of a brand that was once synonymous with the very medium itself. It needs to lead once again. And if it can do that, if PlayStation 4 can get the world excited about video games once more, then everyone wins. (Industry, PS3, PS4, Sony)

It will be no surprise if we play World of Warcraft, DOTA or Diablo online on PS4. And Steam Box holds the clue.

kEEP DREAMING WITH wow, their main income its from subcriber and they have 10 million, count me in Im a member. I hope Sony comes up with something great, but knowing them DRM and faulty hardware will be their next move. I only own a PS3, but all my sony product has been faulty, ps1 upside down read disk, ps2 blue screen and bad laser, ps3 ylod. I will only get a PS4, but I will wait until they fix the hardware.

You seem to go out of your to convince people you own a PS3 with most of your comments, but then you start talking about DRM as if game sharing never happened....

World of Warcraft? On the PS4?

Sometimes I wonder what world some gamers live in.

Be nice to play Realm of the Mad God on the PS4 somehow though.

@miyamoto: Do you honestly think that? DOTA 2 is the only game that's actually on Steam.
Don't get me wrong. I'm the first one who thinks X-platform-gaming may be great, but there are some technical difficulties and some difficulties in many heads that stand between the platforms.

Sony has great year this year.

If it's announced, I'm happy.. But sad I can't afford it.

Plus I have a PS3 from Christmas 09. Still too early. I'd be guilty for cheating on my PS3 ;3
Conzul  +   578d ago
Word is PS4 won't have hardware BC, so no need to feel guilty in keeping your Peesthreee.

I got my PS3 back in January 2010, but I'm still getting a PS4 on launch :/

Just because you were late to the party doesn't mean everybody was.

PS3 is so old now it'd be stupid to keep it as the main platform for much longer.

I didn't say everyone has to, I was only referring to myself clearly.
I know a lot of you guys can afford it, and I'm happy about that.

Gaming needs all three companies to thrive.

Without MS online gaming would suck
Without Sony reliability would still be an issue.
Without Nintendo we wouldn't have motion controls

Do we really need Nintendo?

Respect Ninty for what they've done, but what they're up to now........isn't worthy of their rich history.

Nintendo brought the casuals into this industry.

Which could be seen as a blessing or a curse.

In my opinion they almost caused a second crash with the Wii U but thankfully both Sony and Microsoft will save the market from the casuals.

PC on the other hand lives in its separate little world which is fantastic for those people who can afford a good rig. Im dying to play guild wars 2 though.

Yes, no one company should have a monopoly over the whole industry. That would be so boring.
ThatsGaming  +   578d ago
Gaming needs PS4 and 720 so that competition remains. Competition creates innovation.

i'm very excited for PS4, it's a day one for me, hoping Sony bring back the awesome ps2 days with more Japanese games support, but if it's anything like ps3...eh i don't know what to say.. i'll be very very very disappointing
