Everyday Digitals - After Wednesday’s PS4 press conference I felt pretty good about the direction Sony was taking the Playstation brand. It’s been a rocky 6 years for the PS3 but they’ve seemed to finally find their stride with software/services in the past couple of years. In the early days of the PS3 there was complaints from multiple developers about their dev tools and the architecture of their platform. Their proprietary chip, the Cell created a steep learning curve to create games with, resulting in sub-par 3rd party ports. Their Playstation Network was far behind their competitions when it came to features and accessibility. Over the years Sony has continued to add features and value to their online services via firmware updates.
