Lessons for the Playstation 4 From the Playstation 3

Forbes - Sony learned some tough lessons when it launched the Playstation 3. The company’s flagship system caught up to the Xbox 360 over the course of this generation, but it was a hard fought battle, and most of its problems were clear on the day the console hit the market. Sony found itself in an awkward position. After thoroughly dominating consoles with the Playstation 2, it was scrambling in the early days of the Playstation 3. (PS3, PS4)

I blame the media for not BELIEVING in sony with the ps3 launch. Yes sony were arrogant & was a year late to the party with a overpriced system but as loyal fan of the playstation brand, I already knew sony would deliver where it counts most, & that is with a portfolio of games where u wont find anywhere else but the ps3.

Funny thing is the media didnt buy into the ps3 from its launch saying the ps3 will FAIL even though sony's last 2 previous consoles never showed any signs of weakness especially with games & now that sony has proven them all wrong & the same media who jumped on the 360 bandwagon only to see the last 3 years of kinect goodness, all sudden they wanna jump bandwagons again because they know the ps4 is coming & now their doing the same thing to the wii u lol. All i can say is next time look at their track record before u start calling something a failure. Tomorrow cant come any sooner, cant wait.

Yep just like the sony fanboys and their commenst regarding the wiiu

Sony loyalists like any other extremist group are incapable of critizising their god, brand , leader etc.

" Signs are pointing towards a smoother transition at the inevitable Playstation 4 launch tomorrow. "

Does he know what he's talking about ? lol

Unveil will be a better word.
FamilyGuy  +   1008d ago
lmao, I didn't even catch that!

Launch tomorrow, we'd of seen leaked photos of the actual system already if that were the case.

I just hope Sony doesn't make a mistake with the ps4 that will push consumers away. The only problem I saw with thr vita was no internal memory/ high priced memory cards. Just keep online free and don't lock out key features for a premium price.

Interesting that the people from Quantic Dreams are in New York, maybe an announcement of Beyond release date or even better, Sony announce their acquisition of Quantic Dreams.
