PS4: 'Microsoft Will Have To Bring Their A-Game' - Analyst

Sony’s PS4 is so impressive that Microsoft will need to ‘bring their A-game’ when they reveal the next-gen Xbox, according to one industry analyst.

Senior analyst with Cowen and Company, Doug Creutz, believes although Microsoft has positioned itself in pole position at the end of the current generation, to compete with the Sony and the PS4 it will need to deliver something special and be on it’s 'A-game'. (Microsoft, Nintendo, PS4, Sony, Wii U, Xbox One)

Gonna be hard to top Sony after what they showed yesterday. Microsoft won't have as many real exclusives but the least they could do is keep up with the competition by trying to match specs or better specs. Sony went first, which was pretty ballsy, but this gives them a chance. If they screw up with more Kinect trash, well... lol. R.I.P
TheRealSpy  +   1081d ago
What Sony showed was not that impressive. It was nothing like the leap we saw last generation. I swear you people are so desperate to believe something is true, that you completely ignore reality. Wasn't 6 years of being completely delusional enough for you?

My computer (that i built over 6 months ago) can run Crysis 3 on max settings, and let me tell you, Killzone 4 has NOTHING on it.

MS doesn't need to work that hard to top PS4...but they better work hard to top my expectations. Cuz Sony didn't come close. I thought I was going to destructible environments that are affected by realistic physics, entrance and exit wounds, better looking character models, etc.. Instead, all I got was a bunch of CGI, the inside of a car, and a game that looks like Modern Warfare (Killzone 4) but with better lighting and shadows.

Also, obvious jokes aren't funny. You people want it to be funny cuz you think it's fun to hate on one corporation (MS) while childishly obsessing over another.

^^ I respectfully disagree. I was blown away. The PS meeting was 100% better than the whole E3 2012. In fact, I'll be bold in saying I can't remember ANY E3 conference which went better.

The games looked fantastic. Drive Club was good. Shadow Fall looked good. Knack was amazing imo. Destiny on PS4 with exclusive content. Infamous Second Son will be a must buy. Blizzard partnership. Social network sharing will be the YouTuber's dream. Literally everyone I showed the trailers to was in awe. And the only cgi footage shown was Capacom's working title. Good try though.

But I'm sure MS will have a successful unveiling of their own. As long as they don't introduce a random celebrity to the stage it's a win in my book.

An amd chip would be easy to beat actually just ask intel for performance and arm for low temps.

What would kill the ps4 right now would be a scalable system just like a pc that also let devs put the game tools on the same disk.

Basically they would need a surface rt connected to a custom nvidia that could run all of our favorite tools. It could even run win8 and support steam if you wanted it to.

Photoshop and 3d programs on a game console... Hell I would buy 20 just to setup a render farm for fun. $14,000 vs 200,000 is a nice savings.

Games? How about every thing that runs on a pc and Xbox exclusives so you can keep that nasty drm off you real power system?

What about halo with a map editor, a real one? What about running an unreal 4 engine game and stopping it to run the editor without a pc.

If you don't have the game then give your fanbase the tools. Creat the next 20 notchs. Then pay them like YouTube. Suddenly gamers can afford gaming and many arm chair developers can see what it really is like trying to please gamers.

Specs would be too easy and no one cares about the social network unless it makes you money. Let video games become a virtual silicon valley.

As you can see every one can do uncharted graphics now, so uncharted will become irrelevant. Many fps are better than killzone game play wise. If you want movies then ms could just make you a movie and then let you play the game afterwards, in the locations that the movie took place in.

Then they can experiment with story without it hurting the gameplay.

Something tells me every one will not get a ps4,wiiu,or Xbox/pcwin8 so developers will be porting a lot of games.

So it all comes down to exclusive services and content or tools. Sony doesn't have my money yet. I'm sure a lot of gamers feel this way about each console. It is the developers that I'm worried about though. Can ps fan support exclusive expensive aaa games or will we see a lot more devs closing? We will see... Remember ps1-2 made dev cheaper and devs gave them a monopoly. Is that the case here I think not.

@therealspy- you do realize that was a reveal conference, right? You are not going to see the full power of ANY system at a reveal. Apparently no one remembers (either because they were too young to stay up that late or because they are so old their memories are fading) that the 360 reveal on MTV was a bust that was a half hour long where they only showed a couple of minutes of gameplay that didn't look next-gen, didn't reveal price and was mostly about celebrities.

Nice. +bubble.

MS has a long history of lying. Remember when they said that you can use Kinect to scan your skateboard or any object and use it in your games? What about MS promising that you can play Kinect with four players at the same time? What about all of those hired actors paid act like they like Kinect? What about all of those fake demos on stage? Remember the kid faking the Kinect Star Wars demo? The demo was 3 seconds ahead of him.

MS are liars and none of those smoke and mirror tactics will work this time. Sony knocked it out of the park with a grand slam yesterday and MS will need much more than yellow rain jackets and a circus performance to compete with this.

MS opened new studios named Playful Learning Studios and Kids and Lifestyle Entertainment Studios so it's clear MS will be 100% focused on casual gaming next gen. There is no such thing as an "A" game from MS anymore. There's just "A game" as fr0sty said. Halo. Sony now has exclusive content and day and date release from Bungie's Destiny game which MS also lied about and said it would release first on Xbox. You can't believe a word MS says.

MS's biggest announcement will be Skpe will be added behind the XBL pay wall while remaining free to use everywhere else.

Yep.And i like how Sony had Watch dogs and Destiny shown first.The biggest 3rd party launch games already shown! MS will look pretty weak just showing some sloppy seconds.(Which they no doubt had planned)

Not counting the new games Sony will show at E3.
I think your right.Big focus on skype and other social aspects and some more kinect mumbo jumbo.

And probably yet another halo pre rendered video.GG micro/ninty but Sony already has this on lock.All they have to do is show the console and it pops any hype bubble MS blows

"MS opened new studios named Playful Learning Studios and Kids and Lifestyle Entertainment Studios so it's clear MS will be 100% focused on casual gaming next gen."

LMFAO, you forgot to list Microsoft Studios that are making Hardcore titles. And whats wrong with MS making a game that my lil sis is able to play also?

MS and Sony are showing that they can be more than just game consoles(hardcore and kids titles), but Multi-media entertainment hubs(Blu-ray player, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, Hulu+, Web browsing, apps, Smartglass/Playstation world etc...).

The Kinect that was demoed and the one released are different, so you do have a point with MS lying about it.

You got bubbles for that?? Funny how you bang on about lying and then start doing it yourself. MS have opened about 15 new studios. Like, 3 of them are casual based. 100% my arse.
TheRealSpy  +   1081d ago
You have no idea what they have planned. If you did, you'd be working for MS, not dogging them on some website.

I bet you never mentioned the term "sloppy seconds" when talking about all the stuff Sony showed at E3 after MS showed it the previous day.

You people really need to grow up.

"Big focus on skype and other social aspects and some more kinect mumbo jumbo."

Again, such hypocrisy. A big part of Sony's conference was about social networking and always being connected. So why would it be a bad thing if MS did that, too?

See what i mean about needing to grow up?

"And probably yet another halo pre rendered video."

You mean like the infamous trailer?

"Sony already has this on lock"

Based on what? other than your psychotic loyalty to a corporation?

Your insanely idiotic comments, and the fact that you have so many agrees, is proof to all new comers to N4G that this is not the place for gamers. Just for Sony loyalists with nothing better to do with their time than bash MS and build Playstation up into something it's not and can never be. The N4G community has become a real embarrassment.

Good one, "A" game. Bubbles up.

I have to agree, Sony brought out their A game. Plus for them (Major Nelson) to make a questionable comment about not actually showing the system is irrelevant. They showed actual games, they mentioned real specs. The Xbox 360 is going on 8 years now and they haven't shown anything other than how well they do for sales in the US.

people forgetting that alot of the games shown in PS4s great conferance were multiplatform games. With all the demos shown was what made a great show.

All microsoft has to do is not only bring their own exclusive games but also showcase alot of mutliplatform games aswell and show the innovations they added to their next console.

Microsoft will have to do either the same or alot to top this reveal from sony.

random ideas

Halo 5
Next Gen Gears of War
Forza 5
Forza Horizon 2?
Crackdown 3
Rare IPS taken seriously ( Full On Banjo Kazooie, Perfect Dark, Conker )
Alan Wake 2
Project Gotham 5
Kameo 2?
Next Gen Spinter Cell

list goes on what Microsoft could potential reveal.

all features PS4 has ala recording gameplay watching others play and addition to all thier innovations and features.

Finally a list of mutliplatform games showcased in their event.

Hideo didnt make a appearance so hmm

Metal Gear Solid ground zeroes and reveal of phantom pain? in Microsoft show.

A ff game announced in ms show?

rockstar makes a appearance at ms show?

microsoft could do alot to top sonys show.

Witcher 3 showcased in MS show? ( afterall in witcher 2appeared on xbox 360 exclusively.)

bethesda game?

next gen call of duty

please microsoft dont shove kinect down the entire show.

if microsoft does all the above it will absolutely kill sonys conferance.

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes - Gamecube
MGS4 & MG Online PS3
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PS3 & 360
Not including gameboy color and other portable platforms

Sony gamers just really appreciates Kojima work a lot vs other platforms that hes been on that's all, he was never exclusive to Sony

Gears, Halo, Forza....
why make that kind of assessment? Those are AAA games in MS camp much like GoW, GT and Killzone are to Sony.

Are you suggesting that the continued release of successful franchises are a BAD thing? If so then somone needs to tell Sony to STOP development of the next infamous, killzone, possibly even GoW or GT6.

My point is you can have new games showcased but the ones that helped build a platfroms success are a staple that have to be there as well. It is a reason Mario has been so prevalent for Nintendo for over 30 years.
muttley65  +   1081d ago

ALL im saying MS need more than 3 games and kinect this E3 they need more announcement for AAA game being made.

other than that in my opinion MS e3 wont be appealing event as we all know SONY coming out with CLAWS this time around.
MS need to give me a REASON to buy the 720- kinect and FABLE,ALLEN WAKE,GEARS,HALO games will not do it.

Those are very good games you just listed. I would buy the new xbox just for those three games alone. Gears, Halo, and Forza are franchise game for the xbox as God of war, gran turismo, and Little big planet as to Sony.
Sony seems to have a handle on 1st party games and new IPs. It will be interesting to see what 3rd parties have in store for the PS4. Microsoft need to bring their known franchise games and new IPs.
darthv72  +   1081d ago
I agree there should be more focus on the games. After all....that is why we buy these platforms in the first place.

now i think i know what you were originally eluding to. You probably were referring to AAA "exclusives" rather than a general statement of AAA games.

honestly, what makes a game AAA is the support from the developer and especially the consumer. Games dont have to be exclusive to be considered AAA.

And if the rumored specs of the 720 are as close to the ps4 then we will likely see AAA games released for both from competent 3rd parties.

When it comes to the exclusives, i agree that sony holds more cards but I wouldnt count MS out of coming up with something new this time around.

We just have to wait and see.

You are so right because those Sony exclusives have sold SO WELL in the past. This looks like a Xbox made by Sony.
1. Social features - current Xbox (not needed acccording to hardcore Sony fanboys).
2. Use mobile phone or tablet to view extra game material - current Xbox, it's called Smartglass
3. Improved online (for a small fee) - current Xbox, it's called Xbox Live

Do I need to continue? Yes nice looking games, but that is expected. What would be the point of showing the system if the graphics sucked? The problem is exverything here that is "new" is anything but.

i have mostly been an xbox fan this gen, but come 720 time if all i see has the next halo, gears and forza plus some fuzzy animals that weave back at me, this gen will be my last with ms...

I think you missed the point entirely, maybe you are an xbox fantard maybe you just jumped the gun , but what he was trying to say from what i see it as is microsoft need to bring MORE than just another halo forza and gears no one is saying don't bring them but bring MORE than them. Sony bring infamous they bring killzone they bring GOW but they also bring heaps of other first party games with them and keep making new ones thats the difference. If you cant see that then i was right about the fantard comment.

Alot of people keep saying "oh Gears Forza, Halo won't cut it but GT, Uncharted, LBP etc will" Look what each person in rebuttal of the Forza, Halo, Gears comment has said. Not one person has listed the same games. That's the difference. Not one person can even agree what Sonys 3 biggest games are. Yet every comment in relation to MS has been Halo.... Forza.... Gears, the only big games MS has. Forza, Gears, Halo are amazing games, anyone saying otherwise are in the vast minority. But at the same time anyone thinking that just 3 AAA games from MS that only come out in Two year periods can compete with Sony is in denial.

Sony definitely threw down a gauntlet. But I've never been one to get all googly-eyed over exclusives. Most of my favorite games this gen were multiplat anyway.

One of my biggest problems with the PS has been its controller. That's why I tend to lean xbox. But the DS4 looks beautiful. The revamped joysticks and new design look like so much win. Combined with MS's insistence on destroying the second hand game market with their online only approach, the PS4 might become my preferred platform this next time around.

Such a buzz word around here. Guess what? Sony only revealed 1. And even that was ten years id in concept as admitted by the guy from Evolution.

Maybe Sony should focus more in that are because MS have about 16 in production.

I can see EA, Activision, CD project Red, Epic and 1st party devs making it at MS presser or at E3. People tend to forget this is MS we're talking about, nobody knows what MS has planned but, if we look at earlier events regarding the the 360 first showings. MS will WOW people again and bring something unexpected to the table.

Eldyraen  +   1081d ago
@Mathew9R: I think he means he'd like to see a little more about the UI as it didn't really get all that much attention so they could show the actual games.

All we really saw was a little bit of it here and there and its not the same as a more comprehensive demo. We'll likely have to wait for them to reveal the console itself and have demo kits out for people ('journalists') to test for themselves before we really get to know a lot more about it. Its a small thing as it still looked better and by the sound of it was a huge step up imo.

I'm looking forward to seeing the system itself (as in a retail sales kit) and am expecting a headset to be included since all controllers have the built in headphone jack now. So much we don't know that isn't game related necessarily but everything sounds hopeful.

Competition breeds humbleness and excellence. If Microsoft doesn't provide adequate competition, Sony will revert back to their 2005 "you'll want to get a second job to buy this" mentality. It's to the benefit of PS4 gamers than Microsoft have a strong performance this gen.

Rest assured, Microsoft will bring their A game. They won't just let Sony take over the industry like many others on N4G pretend.

Agree with what you saying and you show the facts. But one thing you need to remember is, hardware will determine the longevity of that console. For example the Wii and possibly the Wii U. Wii sold more then any console this gen, but look at it now? PS3 and Xbox 360 are still selling world wide while the wii is stagnant. When a next gen is released you can not just stop support for the current Gen. Xbox 360 and PS3 will be support for years to come. Of course the support will diminish as the year go by but it will still be supported. You can not abandon 90 million Wii owners. I just dont know how Wii U will keep up with the PS4 and Next box once 3rd party developers began to make game that exceed the potential of the Wii U.

By the way Dreamcast did not do better than the PS2. The PS2 is still the best selling home console to date. 3DS had a few year head start before the PS Vita so comparing a one year old console to a veteran is not really fair.

Although, the gaming subreddits are infinitely better than N4G anyway and there is no longer a threat in losing bubbles. Better conversations there, MUCH MUCH more intelligent people (not that i'm saying they are all intelligent, but a brick is a step up from you people), and you get the news know...since all the n4g contributors really just camp reddit waiting for news that they can repost here anyway.

All Microsoft has to do is bring Backwards Compatibility to the table and they already have a huge step up over Sony competing for my dollars. As long as the next Xbox is similar enough in specs of course.

I was so disappointed to learn that Sony decided to not include backwards compatibility. I was a MS and Nintendo owner this past gen, so aside from my Wii U I was heavily leaning towards Sony this time around. But the fact that there are so many PS3 games that I missed out on, I am not going to buy both a PS3 and PS4 so that I can enjoy all the missed titles. I still have several 360 games that I haven't even touched yet, so if the 720 allows me to play them, then that's one less console to sit on my already filling up TV stand.

A good reason as to why the Vita struggled out of the gates besides the high price tag was the lack of PSP support. That is especially true in Japan where the PSP continues to outsell the Vita. Had the Vita included PSP support you would have seen it's numbers take off over there. Instead, it's struggled and losing ground quickly to the 3DS.

I wanted to believe in you this time Sony, but it's moves like that which keep me from acting on it..

Very disappointed...

Agreed. People are claiming victory with the ps4, but we havent seen shit from MS. All i know is we can expect a beast of a console, and now that they saw ps4 specs maybe theyll do what Sony was planning. See your competitors specs and beef up yours.

The end result is the same in all these cases

What Microsoft needs to do is provide value and features that are unique to their console. Microsoft now knows what they're dealing with so they are in a better position than they were two days ago. The people counting MS out simply because the 720's hardware might not be as good as the PS4's are deluded.

I don't think it's a matter of seeing what the competition is doing and simply beefing up ? These things take a lot of planning.

I think if MS wants to release the 720 in the same year as the PS4 they need to have finalized at least a couple of things by now and have devs already working with the tech. They can't just say: "Oh lol, look at the PS4 specs, lets do that too"

Not if they want to release this gen at least.
Ripsta7th  +   1081d ago
@LOGIC, yeah true Cod sells regardless, Also MS sells no matter what, bacause of ADVERTISEMENTS. Something they have always done better than sony. Also they got maybe next gen Halo, which will probable break records because of its brand recognition. Im just hoping they put up a good fihgt against Sony this time around with more even specs.
DigitalSmoke  +   1081d ago
It is a victory indeed, for gameingm, and its because of Sony, cause nobody was going to put in that type of ram, maybe next gen.

Now, Microsoft cannot change to GDDR5 without pushing the console back for atleast 6 month's, son, stop being so butthurt and taaaake it.
zebramocha  +   1081d ago
@logic your comparison isn't that good because in each circumstance there was a reason why a console performed well,the ds came of the success of what ever variant of the gameboy was out,nintendo drop the price of the 3ds so we can't compare,Sony's success and marketing prevailed against the dc and xbox 1,the wii had a cheaper price and motion control behind it.

"your comparison isn't that good because in each circumstance there was a reason why a console performed well"

Ummm yeah...thats the point lol. If there wasn't a reason, these consoles wouldn't have succeeded.

My point is:

WHO CARES what the reason was? That doesn't downplay the fact that these consoles succeeded without having the powerful hardware of their counterpart.

Games, price, hardware, features, value, advertising are all EQUALLY important. Any console that nails most or all of these factors deserves to be on top.

Why do you make it seem like price drops and marketing are "illegitimate" ways of succeeding? Or maybe thats just my impression of your comment?

What so buy 2 game consoles and forget the fact that Sony is screwing people over by doing this? Why should I reward Sony for their stupidity?

I will reserve my ultimate judgement until I see what MS is offering, who knows, maybe they will pull backwards compatibility too, but assuming MS stays the course and does offer backwards compatibility, you have a huge library of Microsoft games vs the launch library of the PS4. Which one seems to make more sense?

I am not trying to start anything, this is just my opinion of course. I just feel like I would be cheated out of a lot of good games I missed if I buy the PS4 and I am certainly not buying both a PS4 AND a PS3..

Neo I see what u mean but saying Microsoft is gonna keep the same way they did and Sony didn't is not true these is Micros 3rd gen coming they did keep backwards from 1 to 2 but then again did Sony from ps1 to ps2

I own most consoles easy for any one to see user name BrunoM on all of them and if I got to bet on any company to go for my needs as a gamer is say Sony will ..

But then again me having all the main systems and having a LOT of games on them I don't expect a company to not move with times new gen new games new everything new games I already own my ps3 so if I wanna play ps3 games
Il go and jump on that I want my future next gen systems to do what my current systems don't ...

So no we don't need backwards on our future consoles we want next gen AI physics and as good as graphics as we can get ..

But what ever that's just what I think next gen is for next gen games

isa_scout  +   1081d ago
Well said, if you dont own a ps3 by now why complain that you can't play them on the PS4? If they weren't important enough for you to go out and buy the current system, something tells me you wont be buying their future system anyway. Even if Nextbox has BC there wasn't that many amazing titles on the system anyway. I have a 360, my gamertag is KingJamesXMVP6, and I'll tell you right now I've played all of the 360's biggest games(there aren't many) and the only thing the 360 has that's better than the PS3 is it's online functionality. If Sony nails it's social features the way their talking about then MS will be in big big trouble.
_-EDMIX-_  +   1081d ago
Agreed. I'm not sure why they should add such a thing in. "Oh I want a PS4, but throw in a PS3 too..."

A new CPU is more important, then letting people play PS3 games on a PS4. If you have PS3 games...then clearly you have a that. This makes the PS4 cheaper and helps developers with the CPU. Being BC MEANS keeping old tech in the system to be compatible.

I own every PS system so BC means NOTHING to me. If your a PS fan, BC should mean nothing to you too.
MrWonderful  +   1081d ago
Lmao at you my friend. Sony made backwards compatibility a industry standard. I still have my launch ps3 and have used that feature very little since 2006. It wont kill you to have a ps3 and ps4 and play your ps3 games on your ps3 to keep from putting wear on your ps4 optical drive man.
testerg35  +   1081d ago
MS is probably at a better spot at bringing BC to the next xbox because the 360 is closer in design to PC hardware.
_-EDMIX-_  +   1081d ago
That is indeed true. But at this point, it still means Sony will STILL sell PS3s, MS will halt on selling 360's. (or sales will slow down like they did for XB1)

Either way, is good for Sony. They are here to sell PS4 games to PS4 owners, not sell PS3 games to PS4 owners (you know....with JUST PS4s)
capnjoe217  +   1081d ago
"All Microsoft has to do is bring Backwards Compatibility..." But then what if that makes the console $100 more expensive? Are you then going to complain about the price? You complained about Vita being too expensive while in the same breath complained that it had no PSP support when in practice, including support would make it even MORE expensive. Which is it? Do you want a console that does everything but costs $600 or do you want something affordable that gets the job done by playing next gen games? This dilemma seems to be pervasive in the current gen, people's expectations of technology exceeding their wallet size.
SlyFoxC  +   1081d ago
its not that they didnt want to bring Backwards compatibility its that they could not do it because hardware is completely different. Read a little bit and you will see that. Just as the 720s hardware will be different from the 360 so it most likely will not be able to do backwards compatibility either.
isa_scout  +   1081d ago
True, I find it funny that people cannot remember that the 360 didn't launch with backwards compatibilty. It was rolled out over the period of over a year, and even then it wasn't every single game. I remember getting my 360 on launch day, came home and played some king kong, and then I stuck in Halo 2 and was like wuh??? I honestly dont believe either system needs it, the people who complain the most are probably the ones who would never use the feature in the first place. Complainers complain.

5-in the search-bar type "Quantom Dream PS4" to watch the IN-GAME DEMO of their new engine.
6-in the search-bar type "watch dogs ps4" then watch it (yes they stated it was PC gameplay but since we know how powerful is the PS4 based on the Killzone : shadow fall gameplay footage we can see that the PC & PS4 gameplay and graphics of watch dogs will be the same thing).

3 years of Red ring of death

Still a last gen DVD console ( multi disc needed on many games )

No built in wi-fi, was a added cost of $99.

Lost it's biggest developer in Bungie. What's left, seen the exclusive games projections lately? Now Bungie is making exclusive content for the PS4, oh lawd.

Never once won a Game of the Year exclusively

The PS3 has shipped more consoles to date. With a full year less lead time and NOT with a worldwide launch. All of Europe didn't see the PS3 until 2007. The XBox sells figures will always be misleading due to the years of RROD ( 50% fail rate at one point ) and the one million XBox users who's consoles were bricked for pirating games.

2006 GOTY was Zelda: Twilight Princess ( look it up ). Gears did get votes. But not as many overall wins as Zelda.

It is pretty evident that Microsoft is moving more towards a mass market appeal making their system more of an entertainment hub than a true gaming platform. That was their goal when they entered the console market.

They are focusing more on apps, integrating Windows 8 into the system, services & all the stuff that interests the mainstream rather than the core.

You'll get your Halo, your Forza, some maybe new IPs who knows. And they will once again rely on 3rd parties for software but unlike this gen, next gen is a level playing field. So now it is which system can use their specs to the fullist the easiest that will gain that 3rd party advantage of being 'lead platform'.

Who know what Microsoft is planning. As a hardcore gamer i am worried that you may not get what you want with the next Xbox.

ps4 is great. i think sony took many steps in the right direction but i would hardly count ms out. the xbox has a strong following, including myself and now that sony has laid out its hand, ms knows what it needs to respond too.

end of the day, im buying both. selling point for me will simply be BC. if the new xbox can run my old collection then ill get that first so i can play old games in between the inevitable after launch drought. if the new xbox cant play older titles then i will let the exclusives decide which is likely won by sony. again, either way ill get both, one on day one, the other 6 months later prob

see thats the thing most ppl are forgetting "ms knows what it needs to respond too." it doesnt matter if MS knows what sony has because unless MS are releasing there console mid next year they wont have any room for changing much because the console should be just about or already being made so specs cant change much from there considering games have to be built according to specs before the console is even released.

They could potentially pull some customers away from MS , but it's going to come down to pricepoint and if they keep online gaming and cross-party chat FREE OF CHARGE.
Grimhammer00  +   1081d ago
Well, a few things go against MS.
One....anything they do that is related to Sony's presentation will look contrived, coping and try hardish.

MS will try and show they are the better different choice. Duh right. But how? Kinect. And kinect for many know the guys who buy 2 games or more every month....they hate it. And I'm in that boat. Can kinect be amazing? Yeah. But I'll always want force feedback and the ability to play my games in long stretches...try playing any motion control game on any system for 4hrs+!

So I guess they'll have to beat Sony at the Social stuff right? Shouldn't be hard for MS. But really do we care? Some features like remote play of friends is now a pS4 thing. MS brings it they'll just be coping. And it may very well be patented for all I know.

8gb of gddr ram is beast for consoles...I can't wait to see MS match this. And they might!

Then theirs the devs speak approach. MS needs to do this....but really can't. They don't have nearly as good 1st party support and showing their weak devs will look bad and again, like coping Sony.

MS I do hope you guys come out swinging...I need my PS4 to have competition.
Dragos75  +   1081d ago
MS will probably match and surpass them with the services shown. It was disappointing that so little about Gaikai was revealed. Tbh the jump in graphics really doesn't look that big but it does seem to be enough to distinguish between last gen and next.

Killzone, Infamous, and my favorite, Watch Dogs looked great though.
cloud 279  +   1081d ago
To Dragos:
I believe the hardware is locked, maybe some tweaks here and there. There is still E3, PAX, GDC, TGS to look forward to for Sony to talk about more gaikai implementation. It won't be a one trick pony. Read somewhere that graphics won't be the big jump this gen like last gen PS2 to PS3. Graphics will be more about details in the particles, emotions on faces of characters.

What I expect from Microsoft with new consoles is new exclusive experiences that aren't found on PC or PS4. They have made their presence felt with X360, and its now for them to build on this, and give gamer an experience they want to comeback to. Please no more tie ups for exclusive DLC.

M$ has never been innovative with anything. The 360 is the slowest selling console this gen. So i guess that makes it a failure to. Even with their head start they ended up in last place. The 360 didn't even have hdmi ports or wifi when it was first released. Never mind the fact that they went with hd format that died and DVDs for gaming. Yeah the PS3 was really a failure.

The next Xbox won't be able to hold a candle to the PS4. M$ can't top Sony. It seems as if Sony has every studio in the world willing and able to work on the PS4. On top of that the specs and entertainment value the PS4 is equipped with makes the top console for next gen.

By the way tell me what handheld has M$ released and the 3ds started selling after a price cut.

from the beach  +   1079d ago
I think they'd be wise to announce that a sequel for at least one of those is coming, whether it's launch or first year or whatever, alongside a new high profile game.

Anyway, PS4 is launching with a new Killzone and the Wii U launched with NSMBU, so it wouldn't be so unusual!
