The PlayStation 4 Reveal: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

(Chocolate Lemon) To mostly no one’s surprise, Sony revealed their next generation console to gamers in an event based in New York City Wednesday night.

Well, sorta. (PS4, Sony)

that was just an warm wait until naughty dog and santa monica show us what they got.

I thought it was a pretty good show overall. I am now getting anxious to see what Microsoft has in store for us.

Yeah, definitely eager to see what they have up their sleeve. I hope that April reveal is true.

I got very good vibes from the conference in general.

Good :
- Excellent choices hardware-wise (PC-ish architecture)
- Focus on being dev-frienndly (probably the best thing they can do for the success of their console)
- Great ideas for social gaming. Not just some half-assed Mii/Avatar/PS Home crap

Bad :
- A good amount of the game devs sounded maybe a little bit pretentious ("SOME YEARS AGO I WAS TEAR-GASSED BY COPS!", "You can create your dreeeeeeaaaaaams", etc...)
- They could've shown us a bit more in-game footage from various games. Or tech-demos that were really representative of what the PS4 can do. Only Killzone 3, Knack and Watch Dogs were clearly in-game footage. Knack didn't look too mind-blowing and Watch Dogs was something we previously expected to run on current gen hardware. I'm also having some serious doubts about Deep-Down being actual in-game footage. They used the words "using the engine". This could mean anything, really.
- The games shown were allright but didn't really get me too excited. I'm guessing this will be taken care of at E3, though. We'll probably see MGS:GZ, Last Guardian, Uncharted 4, and more all announced for PS4

Overall though, the good heavily outweighs the bad. What we know is that the PS4 will have amazing potential. Now we just have to wait and see what games will be available for it during the launch window
