I see so many possibilities! It could give a lot of exposure to gaming in general, but also to "hardcore" games as opposed to casual-oriented or phone games. Show the entire world how PS4 works and how its games work (through streaming footage online to people who don't even HAVE PS4s, then pull them in... then show them how to play using remote play abilities! Sony may have a winning formula right there.

Maybe people will watch games live and get interested in it given how many more people will stream their things. Could give exposure to e-sports.

Exactly what I was thinking, it'll introduce more people to more advanced games as opposed to phone games. Impressive, movie-like graphics also help, even though we don't usually think of that as mainstream appeal. Who DOESN'T get impressed by amazing visuals?

Yes I see great potential in the new features. someone who necessarily isnt interested in a game might watch over one of their friends play it and be convinced. I know that when God Of War 3 was looming I'd never played a God Of War game and my friend let me borrow his old PS2 copy. I wasn't excited about it to tell you the truth but after playing the first one I "got it" and was so hyped for 3 coming out. And now I am so hyped for Acsension. Can't wait to hear Kratos' infamous RAWWWWWWR again :)

I'm more impressed than I was during the PS3 reveal

MasterCornholio1335d ago

Same here because in my opinion the PS3 reveal was pretty bad because it was filled with more tech demos than actual games. Not to mention the fact that we were taught a little bit of Japanese history about the battles against the giant enemy crabs.

Sorry every time i mention the PS3 conference i have to mention the crabs.

Gaikai gives so much potential for the advertising of Playstation content on other devices.

People on iphones and ipads could stream prerecorded gameplay of games for limited time and get hooked

I notice that Sony did not mention anything about Skype on the PS4...Skype could be a huge plus for MS if implemented right on the 720.

Cerberus21251335d ago

That is because Microsoft pay more than 8 mills for Skype.

Good points in this article

I remember when the 360 was announced and I was kind of overwhelmed with the new social features they were bringing up. I was thinking it was giong to be too complex though I wasn't hating any of them. I just wasn't THAT interested in gamerscore and similar things. I just wanted to play games... now I find these features almost necessary (not gamerscore, but seeing what your friends are playing online, comparing games, etc)... I'm sure it'll be the same with PS4.

It was the same thing for me, I know better now though ^^

Xbox will have a heads up on Sony in the social uploading department

Not necessarily . At some point they were cast aside in the pc and mobile world with their outdated live messenger . Their last versions of it was horrendous and the remaining messenger fan mostly installed older versions back or moved on to other entwoks and apps . Except of course on the xbox consoles

There is a good reason why they quickly bought skype to get back in that game and to replace live messenger .

Those things and social sharing trends change very very quickly .
