Sony Strikes First Promoting Hardcore Gaming and Social Experiences…Microsoft Your Move

As though calmly sitting in their own living room space giving their friends and guests a first-hand look at the future, Sony’s message was crystal clear, Playstation is all about pushing gaming boundaries well beyond the norms of today’s standards and into the future of social connectivity. (PS3, PS4, Sony)

Then just keep your Ps3. I wont disagree with you because you have the right to an opinion.
FYI SuperDaE the guy who accurately (besides the RAM) leaked the specs (who was raided by MS's ninja's) said that the Xbox Durango uses is heavily modified set-up, making it actually far less of PC than the 360 is. This will result in difficult backwards compatibility according to SuperDaE.

It will definitely be interesting to see what MS has planned, Sony set the the bar, if MS can raise it ill be shocked.

Social Networking is the theme of next gen, I'm very curious to see the next Evolution of Xbox Live and if if is above and beyond what Sony has shown with the New PSN

I'm buying a ps4 to play ps4 games. If you're not ready to move on then don't. Nobody is forcing you to buy it. I'm going to keep my ps3 until I finish all those games. There are too many good games coming out to worry about being able to reminisce about old games

Sony is innovating not only in social aspects, but also in terms of how we instantly play demos and connectivity in general. Im already sold. Their presentation went above and beyond not only showing tech demos but live gameplay of kz. Micro can keep kinect, usher and all, tht other trash. With Gakai a part of ps4 Nothing micro shws will top it in terms of online and connectivitym they better hope they can match it.
I honestly don't think Microsoft will be able to compete next gen if they keep charging for XboxLive. No backwards compatibility is not an issue for me. It's not like I'm gonna throw away my ps3.

I keep thinking this: How on earth can paid-for Xbox Live actually work when their competitors are doing it for free? And this is the time when it will hit them hard if they don't change their ways and drop the subscription. The main reason the 360 did so well because it had the jump on all the other consoles. MS don't have that luxury this time round, and it's little things like this that are going to lose them customers big time.

Microsoft are gonna need to match those specs but I find highly unlikely if there gonna bundle Kinect 2.0 with every Durango
Also Live at the price it is gonna be a huge factor in what there offering as a service compared to the competition.Do something like PS+ it will def give there service more value and reason for gamers to pay to play on there network.

Games Iam sure they will announce a few new IP's but will it be enough to compete with Sony? They have to come in strong and make a impression addressee all those issues that gamers have with there brand.Show something new different keep it fresh,not another shooter Zzzzz.Sony has variety that's where they excel M$ gotta do something no ones expecting all eyes are you MS.

MS biggest feature on the 360 was the social features and MS got Halo, Forza, Fable (Kinect), Gears out of the way out of the way.

So that leaves MS open for new AAA Ip's that isn't Kinect. Rest assure MS will show off Kinect but they'll show new Hardcore MS games as well.

N4G says other wise but I'm 100% sure I'll prove this site wrong.

Just like the article says MS your move, and make your move fast.
