Sorry, Blizzard, We're Calling You The Boob of the PS4 Conference

Bobby thought for sure that when Sony brought Blizzard onto the stage to speak, the company would announce a new ip of some sorts. Bobby's heart was racing, as he hoped to hear of a World of Warcraft 2 or other MMO coming to the PS4. However, that didn't happen at all.

Definitely the biggest disappointment to me.

Godchild10201885d ago

Square Enix was the biggest disappointment for me. At least from Blizzard we got a game announced there and not a "please get excited about e3" announcement.

Kamikaze1351885d ago

Honestly, I'd rather look forward to a new game that might disappoint me (or not) than to an old game that disappointed me.

Classic Squeenix. Getting people hyped up over the Final Fantasy name for no reason

Heres hoping they can actually release a game for once that doesn't have lightning in it

iMaim1884d ago

Scumbag Square Enix crashed the party and brought the same present they gave last year.

adorie1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

square enix was a total waste of time, when they had begun to show the tech demo, I confirmed to myself that it looked "good running on PS4" then left to fold clothes.

They really had no business there if all they showed was a tech demo and had a guy say to get ready for E3 for any FF news.

I bought a PS3 for Final Fantasy, but all I got were empty promises, dodgy answers, closed door screenings (which end up leaked to us anyway) and focusing on the wrong console.

Square Enix did not deserve the publicity they got from the Sony event, imo

On the other hand, SE has a chance to redeem themselves as a strong Japanese RPG developer.
2013 might be the final year that I givea damn about Square Enix any longer. Balls in their court, always has been, I'm just a masochist when it comes to keeping the hope alive that they will smarten up.

Imikida1884d ago

Blizzard was worse then Square Enix in my opinion. They start with "Blizzard, and Sony are gonna take over the world." They hyped my up for a new promising IP, but instead they tried to cash in on a year old game, that no console players really care about any way. Atleast Square Enix showed an entertaining tech demo.

Kevin ButIer1883d ago

SquareEnix was a total waste of time, at least Blizzard was unexpected and gave me the impresion that we'll see some nice games in the future from them

Seriously!!!... Did Sony fanbase really expect Blizzard to make a exclusive game for the PS4 and leave the PC fanbase hanging ?

What world do you live in ?

If it wasn't the PC fanbase, there would be no Blizzard.

Reverent1884d ago

I don't think that's what anyone assumed... -_-

DarkHeroZX1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

calm your tits down, nobody expected Blizzard to announce an exclusive. We where expecting a whole new experience or maybe even Diablo 2 free to play.

Diablo 2>>>>>> Biablo 3

FamilyGuy1884d ago

The expectation was a new game, whether it be multi-console or not a NEW game would have been nice.

This wouldn't mean Blizzard abandoning PC gamers, just releasing whatever it's new thing is onto both a console and pc.

sonic9891884d ago

do you own the company or something
the same thing can be said about sony and square enix .
really childish comment

yeahokchief1884d ago (Edited 1883d ago )

You think they care about their fanbase more than making money?

Have you played one of their games recently?

I'm currently more of a console gamer, but I used to play the shit out of WC3, TFT and WoW (pre casualfest where new content was defeated in months instead of days).

If you think they care about their fans more than making money and being the "highest selling blahblahblah" you are deluded.

They care about their ego and making money. The more money they make, the more ambitious they can be with their next game. They don't give a shit about what you're playing on so long as they sell more copies of it and it runs smooth on cheap hardware so that it's more accessible.

Personally I wish they had stayed off the Ps4. I'm going to remove any of my friends from my circle that I see playing their stuff on the PS4 (if I buy a Ps4).

I just can't stand sellouts. They remind me of the people I helped gear up in old 25mans who took the gear and moved onto some larger guild. Sellouts. Not to say my guilds weren't successful. Nabbed everyone of the Wotlk server firsts and had a pair of glaives prenerfs for what that's worth. But fuck those sellouts and all their new sheep. What made WoW fun was the challenge. Getting your ass handed to you for a good few weeks before moving forward. Then Wotlk comes and bam all the new content is done within the first day on normal. So dumb.

Dark Souls was more challenging than day 1 WoW content. They seem to get it. I have high hopes for future games by FROM especially if they make games on the PS4 and are less limited with playercounts and world sizes etc.

I was honestly was hoping for blizzards next mmo...

At first I was surprised and excited to see what Blizzard was going to show but then I was disappointed as soon as I heard the music just before the image popped up.

If I had thought back to all the articles we got about Blizzard testing out D3 with a controller then It wouldn't have taken much for me to guess they'd show D3 and something new and amazing.

GraveLord1884d ago

How is it disappointing? Diablo 3 is coming to PS3 and pS4 and so will their future games. Most likely Titan.

RememberThe3571884d ago

I'm with you. I don't get why people are pissed about this at all. It's cool for people who haven't played it, and if you don't like the game then don't buy it for an other system. Why does everyone now days need to be a victim? No one if forcing anyone to buy anything, people need to get over themselves.

We will rule the world...with a game we allready released on PC.

Blackdeath_6631884d ago

yes but think beyond the fact the diablo is coming to ps3/4 its the action that matters the fact that sony has gotten blizzard on board to create console games whether its exclusively for playstation or for all platform (while blizzard did emphasise the partnership between them and sony there was no mention of exclusivity)and i think this is a very positive thing for consoles.

sticky doja1884d ago

Sony did not get Blizzard to create console games. Blizzard has had a working console version of Diablo 3 for months if not years, they have said it themselves on multiple occasions. I would put money on this not being exclusive either. Activision/Blizzard has no desire to alienate Microsoft who have been their bread and butter for years.

GrandTheftZamboni1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

Agreed with you. Even though it may be a lackluster showing an existing game, the fact that a PC developer is supporting a console PLUS the fact that the new PS4 architecture is X86 can mean a lot in the future. If PS4 eventually will be able to play existing PC games that could be HUGE.

MasterCornholio1884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

Game developers who where the money is and if next gen consoles can provide them with an additional source of revenue they will go for it. But i dont understand why some PC gamers are offended by this its not like they are losing support from developers or anything.

jmc88881884d ago (Edited 1884d ago )

No one should be offended when a developer makes a game on another platform. That's silly.

The thing to understand is, that as Blizzard showed nothing, they showed the EXACT same amount of actual PS4 footage that everyone else showed.

The only game that was on a PS4 devkit (and not final hardware) is Killzone, and it looked a bit unimpressive.

Thus an actual final spec PS4 (separate parts floating around in a cardboard box for all I care) is what's important.

All they would do is talk about 'comparable' to a PS4 power, and what they are 'targeting' a PS4 to do. Which means it's all still up in the air and what you saw IS NOT representative of the final product.

Tacklebait1885d ago

I was super excited to see blizzard at first, a few thoughts ran through my mind. Project Titan?? New ip?

and then.. it was Diablo... bah waste of time.

The new "partnership" is good tho, console only gamers have been missing out on some great games.

mamotte1884d ago

It wasnt the worst. At least it was a new announcement about an old game. -Square Enix, cough, cough-
