Good : Awesome games, Impressive graphics, Nice controller, new share functions, easy to develop for (apparently) fast (apparently), big list of 3rd party devs, play games whilst downloading, Gakai info

Bad: Blizzard, nice partnership but honestly give us something better than Diablo 3.

Have to wait until E3 to see the console...

Ugly: Square Enix hyping up nothing again.

Studio-YaMi1920d ago

That's EXACTLY what I was thinking of...

darthv721920d ago

the good: the official announcement, the games shown, the potential that can be achieved over time and experience with the hardware.

The bad: no real system shown other than the controller, some announcements made with no games to show of them (square)

the ugly: the look on my wifes face when I said that we are forgoing the kids college fund to put $$ aside for the eventual announcement of what it will cost.

for ****'s sake, the damned thing isn't even on the market yet, and people are complaining about no new games...

Studio-YaMi1920d ago (Edited 1920d ago )

Maybe they forgot the fact that this "meeting" is just to show what the console could do while the real deal will be shown at E3 this year.


LOL sorry xD

deep_fried_bum_cake1920d ago (Edited 1920d ago )

Not to mention that it was only a Playstation event and everyone knows that the majority of big new games are announced at E3.

Damn you Studio-YaMi, damn you to hell. You beat me by seconds there.

6 NEW EXCLUSIVES (InFamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Drive Club, Knack, Media Molecule's new project, Quantic Dream's new project) + Destiny + Watch_Dogs + The Witness + Agni's Philosophy + Diablo 3 + Deep Down = not enough games.

12 games already announced and this is only the beginning.

I wonder what they'll say about Microsoft, LOL!

HammadTheBeast1920d ago

We haven't even seen what Naughty Dog are doing.

Enemy1920d ago

@ Hammad: Or Santa Monica, or Polyphony Digital. HEHEH!

morkendo231920d ago

and next week we'll see articles "ps4 IS DOOOOM"

not out in market yet.

kahjah1920d ago

I'm hoping that's not the case. Most of the folks I've seen online or talked to that were disappointed have valid gripes. People saying the system are doomed next week are missing the point.

Bad: No hardware BC

Still haven't fixed those analog triggers.

Good: Most everything else.

Studio-YaMi1920d ago

You can still get BC with Gaikai although that needs to be demonstrated to be fully understandable and we still don't know if we will be charged for our owned games or not.

DragonKnight1920d ago

Analog triggers are fine. Oh, you mean the fallacious argument of them being in the wrong place?

Smashbro291920d ago

I mean that they aren't like the 360 ones, those were really good because they fit your finger rather than being these button-ish things your fingers slip off on occasion.

@ the other 2 guys (dumb bubble system): Streaming is not a replacement for hardware, not until the internet providers change a lot of infrastructure.

cervantes991920d ago

Triggers look fixed to me. Hardware BC would be preferred, but come on now, most are not willing to pay for it if the PS3 launch system is any indication.

Hardware BC requires the Cell which equates to a higher launch price - was never going to happen.

kahjah1920d ago

I'm excited to get a hands on with the controllers. They hopefully are a little less slick in the hands.

The one thing I hope for is for Chad Daddy to come out of retirement and talk about dat PSQuad. He knows it be BAAAALLLLIINNNNNN'

I hate journalists. Too negative to the ones that care about gamers. Always predict stupid things and start fanboys wars ..

Why don't you release news only instead of all this bullshits..

kahjah1920d ago (Edited 1920d ago )

Thank you for reading the article. I hope you read it. There is a section in there with good things about what they showed.

The article is pretty balanced I think.

SAE1920d ago (Edited 1920d ago )

I'm just tired of the doom articals and it's coming again. Why don't we get back to before ps3 ?. Just bring news and have real analyse to bring feedback for the developers instead of fighting each other -.-..

Besides, Why you guys judging the ps4 when it's not even released. Wait until it released then it will be a little understandable to see this kind of judge..

Or at least wait until e3 to reveal everything about the ps4. I bet it will solve the games and the access of ps1/2/3 games problem..
