Why the PS4 reveal was a disappointment

So that's that, then. The dust has settled, reporters from all over the world are flying back from New York and we finally have details of the PlayStation 4. Sony had been trumpeting up its big console reveal over the last month, inviting us to 'See the future' and open the door to next-generation hardware, and now it's finally over. What did we make of the whole thing? Well, we were slightly disappointed.

I would rather say; I am very much disappointed!!

muttley651638d ago

I feel it was away to keep people interest til E3

piroh1638d ago

KZ stole the show, it´s the best looking game i ever saw, generation ahead of The last of us

joab7771638d ago

Exactly. Now microsoft will go big and sony counters. Remember though that in april while xbox announces, and again at E3, where sony will go even bigger, 2 games will be releasing to remind gamers what to buy. God of War Ascencion amd The Last of Us. Wilk Gears be enough to sway ppl?

Microsoft does have an opportunity with their tech to offer backwards compatibility and/or content on xbox live on the 720. This could be one of its tricks to counyer sonys 1st party studios. Because while gears may be good, epic isnt the same company it once name recognition at least.

Just wait till SSM, ND, and PD show their stuff.

j-blaze1638d ago

agreed, i wasn't disappointed at all by the PS4 reveal, Sony revealed PS4's amazing specs and features and there is even more saved for E3

starchild1637d ago

I thought Sony's conference was fantastic in every way. It far surpassed my expectations.

slayorofgods1637d ago

Good point about backwards compatibility. Im not sure how big of a sway this will have on the 360 war, but it may have some.. The PS3 does have a better library than the 360, but it a disappointment that the ps4 can not play ps3 or current psn or ps2 games..

It brings up a bigger question.. Was the Cell processor a mistake? The Cell is gone in the ps4, had Sony still used it PS3 games would be playable.

Saigon1637d ago


If I am not mistaken, and correct me if I am wrong, Most PS3 games will be streamed and I am sure Sony will apply that to the PSN games as well as the PS1 and PS2, it only makes sense...BC will be streamed...

Why was it disappointing?

Because need hits, that's why.

nintendoland1637d ago


so you like these games because of graphics? If you want graphics why don't you just go outside.

subtenko1637d ago

If they showed everything and every game they had to show, it would make all these upcoming PS3 exclusives look like crap in graphics lol. When we get The Last of Us we're gonna be like...dang after seeing Killzone Shadow still fun and very good graphical game for PS3 tho! Day 1!

Anyway, I like how all this PS4 and PlayStation news is getting M$, Nintendo and PC fans all rilled up.

iJihaD1637d ago

Just tell me what could you ask more for?

indubitably1637d ago

It's funny how, everywhere else on the internet, there is an even spread of people that are disappointed and satisfied. On here however, people that didn't like the presentation are considered trolls.

Ju1637d ago

Well, same ol', same ol'. Title to attract hits. If you read his story the disappointment comes from the fact he can't touch the thing. That's all. He seemed quite excited but disappointed that there was no HW and no price. But that was it. Great headline, though. LOL

badz1491637d ago

For the anti-Sony army to start spewing their typical BS!

Sony could as well donate a kidney and the media will still find it wrong! This kind of article is not contributing anything useful to the table and just showing the sign of desperation...for hits!...SADLY!

Ugh, people will always be in denial, a reveal without the actual console its not a reveal. Its like saying the monalisa its one of the greatest picture ever made, here it is imagine what it looks like, cause we dont have the picture.

Its like saying here its the greatest looking car ever made, take my word for it AND SING HERE.

The ps4 reveal was the worst in Sony history and the trolls here are on a rampage, on denial. Grow up already. No console= no reveal. Ps4 revealing was a total flamebait for trolls to go argue, just look at how many trolls are arguing here.

Sony's event wasn't all that disappointing.
Sure Sony copied Nintendo in MANY ways when don't they, but that "Deep Down" game . . tsssssss

MEsoJD1637d ago

"Sony copied Nintendo in MANY ways"

I don't think so.

DomceM1637d ago

nintendo is screwed bro. Old hardware and tablet controller isnt worth it.

xursz1637d ago

You're making Nintendo fans look bad. Please stop.

gobluesamg1637d ago

I tried to disagree with you twice

fsfsxii1637d ago

Don't be a bitch , this was a tease before E3.
Sony has more to reveal.

user39158001637d ago

Great language 101 by dark11. When I buy a car the first thing I do its buy for the looks, then figureout which ones has the best offerings and reliability. Same with consoles, If the looks are a turn off, I wont bother getting it until late in the life cycle. PS3 and gamecube follows that category, awfuully ugly and I wont let such a device take away from the living room and the main reason I only bought a few, for the bedrooms. A gaming machine its just that and if the looks are horrible, I wont even bother taking away from the rest. Consoles were meant to be played and not embarrased you from having a plastic awfully made. The reason why PS3/GAMECUBE/ AND jAGUAR are in the bedrooms its caused their designed to me its an embarrasment, Case closed.

I date girls based on looks, the first thing I do is see if she is comparable and have some common sense. Most of everything we do in life are based on looks and dont get me started on Love cause it does not exist.

End of day, no console = failure. Dont sale me a product you dont have as proof cause it reminds me of religion.

saint_seya1637d ago

So for u a caculator that play games could be better than 720/ps4 if it looks better in design? LOL

redfirm1637d ago

I bet you also choose your school based on its looks and not what they teach? oh wait...

irepbtown1637d ago

You buy a car for its looks correct...

But would you buy a Ferrari thats a 1.2L Diesel?
I don't think so...

My point is, who cares about the looks (at this stage). We want to know what it can pull off (which we saw, Killzone, Watch Dogs and so on), we want to know the goodies inside.

Looks can come at E3. You will pick a girl for the looks, but sooner or later you get to know the real them. So, get to really know them, then worry about looks. That's the route Sony have taken.

Sorry about the crap analogy.

fsfsxii1637d ago

Do you play GAMES or stare at the console and get a boner???

so everyone was hyped before the meeting and wishing for ps4 to be revealed...

when it does... everyone is like "meh"... wtf is wrong with you ppl..?

and those who are saying that ... sony didnt show the actual ps4 box... i mean seriously .. u should be concern what you are getting on the screen not the freaking shape of ps4...

to be its way way better than that "Giant enemy crab" embarrassment.
