Why I Was Unimpressed by Sony's PS4

Eldon from Denkiphile: "February 20 was a big day for Sony. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about and aren’t up to date on video game related news, Sony announced the PS4 (or as people who are ABAP call it, the PSQuadruple) along with a number of launch titles like the new Killzone or Destiny. I was pretty disappointed overall with the console itself and other aspects surrounding it because I was led to believe that the hardware would be next-gen material, when in reality it feels more like current-gen but slightly dated." (Gaikai, PS4, Sony)

its because you are a fanboy for another and lesser product.
i dont understand silly articles with people not being excited about ps4 but feels the need to tell people they arent excited. its ok not to be excited but when you have a product that you are suppose to be into because its your hobby and its the best doing things youve never seen pushing tech forward and you dont like it, something is wrong. might as well you stop playing video games if you hate the sony conference for ps4 or you just come out and say," im a fanboy for x product and what sony showed was amazing so i hate them".

i know going around on the internet i see a lot of pc fanboys crying and making things up to make themselves feel better. i see people going as far as to say everything shown by sony was fake which is really a compliment to how amazing the ps4 is.

i lost bubbles saying that killzone shadow fall will look better than crysis 3 on ultra and was banned for a few days. i am right but the thought of it being true was enough to drice pc fanboys crazy enough to full my inbox with hate messages saying im a b... that doesnt know about gaming hardware. i dont know a lot but i know ps4 renders high end pcs unnecessary if it can surpass expensive pcs that cost thousand of dollars to run crysis 3. killzone has the graphics crown right now and its in alpha. imagine when killzone goes gold, more crying i guess by fanboys who hates sony

buying ps4 first day.

Not trying to knock your judgement, but just would like to know, what did Sony lie about during the event on the 20th?

If you are referring to the PS3, please point out the lie that hurt you most. IF it is the Killzone thing, or the HDMI thing, please point it out.
DragonKnight  +   1083d ago
@nlvwithgms: Yeah, everything you say is bull. You've been trolling hard on the PS4 since the reveal so everything you say doesn't matter.
Army_of_Darkness  +   1083d ago
We all know that certain features were removed along with the ps3's price cuts and the reason why most ps3 owners didn't complain about them is because they were features that the majority of us didn't even use... So why would I go off crying about features that I would never use, or have never ruined my gaming experience?!

And your disappointed in the PS4 reveal because the physical form wasn't there?! Boo Hoo! cry me a river bro! cause judging from your bitter comment, I don't think you had any intentions of getting a PS4 to begin with!? so why should you even care?!
I wasn't at all upset that the actual PS4 wasn't revealed because the spec's and games were enough to satisfy my curiosity!
I bet you that if they revealed the physical form of the PS4 but didn't give details on the hardware spec's you would be complaining about that too!

Get over it and play your preferred platform instead of hating on what is gonna be awesome.

Saigon  +   1082d ago

As you can see from my post, I want to know exactly what he is mad at.

Because seriously, if he is one of those individuals that is a ride-or-die Xbox fan, and not notice the stuff MS pulled off, then he needs to grow up. I know what Sony did in the beginning of the PS3 before it was released...

removing the extra HDMI plug for the dual screen view, 1080p at 120fps, or was it 60fps, killzone mistake, and then afterwards removing the other OS, removing the extra media plugin adapters, etc...yeah we know, but as gamers don't care. I found myself being the majority and didn't really care about dual screens or how many fps the system could produce or using the other OS, I cared about the games...

Seriously MS didn't even really allow gamers to access the HDMI plugin until after a revision to the console...the RROD fiasco was much alone for anyone to jump ship, but no one did. to me...this is the first generation i saw a console get a pass...I never saw Nintendo get a pass with the N64, Never saw Sega get a pass with the Saturn...never saw the Atari Jaguar get a pass, so why does MS get a pass this generation...I don't get it. Yet, so many gamers are mad at Sony for lying and being pocket thieves...

Do you see how ironic that statement is...

Im just going to address all of this articles concerns:
Firstly the loss of a select button is non-consequential as the touchpad (yes, not touchscreen) functions as a clickable button: So DMC fans, there is your taunt button.

Secondly, just because Sony wants to employ the Move for PS4 along with Kinect like abilities is hardly detrimental to your experience if you like neither. No one says you NEED to use the move or CAMERA if you dont want to. its an option... there is a demographic that likes that games so be it.

thirdly, the author complains about the video streaming and ability to help your friends in the new social interaction feature of the console. Again.. so what? WHo really cares if lots of people need help beating the first boss in NG... it is OPTIONAL. If they want to cheapen their own experience how does that affect you? Perhaps they are just struggling and really want to press on with the game... have you never been to a friends place and helped them out with one of their games? ts teh same thing but you dont need to physically be there to help out.

The BC (or lack thereof) is a problem but with the change to different architecture it makes sense. SOny are still looking into, they said they are considering various options.

and as for the PSV thing... no one says you need to use remote play... its just another option for those who do happen to have both a psv and ps4. (Ps: remote play was also between Ps3 and PSP)

Just imagine people think the whole thing is fake. But I keep asking 'If the whole thing is fake then why are third parties buying into it and there is a release time for the PS4' Why would the third parties claim they are making games for the PS4 and lie about it when most of them have no allegiance to Sony? so why would they go through all that trouble to help Sony, the people whose system they complained the most about all this gen.And what is Sony going to do when the time comes to release it like they stated? Tell their investors, developers and employees 'April Fools'?

Armyntt  +   1083d ago
I agree with some of what your saying. But saying it looks better than Crysis 3 on Ultra? That might be pushing it. We dont have a final version so it very well could be. From the trailer i seen a game that was still a step down from Battlefield 3 on PC. And that came out in 2011. Im not a PC gamer im just an unbiased gamer. TBH though i wish for KZ to push the fps genre even further graphically and technical wise.

Look whether or not you are huge Sony fan try to accept the fact that people may have felt underwhelming by the Sony conference for reasons other than being a "hater" or "rooting for the other team" can we at least try that?

The fact that anyone is a fanboy of any product makes me laugh and puke at the same time. These are just products people, no reason to invest your heart and soul into it. You should invest those into your family and loved ones.

If you enjoy games, there's no real reason to limit yourself to one platform. I will never understand people that decide to become free advertisement for a company.

I also disagree with the above because 'lesser product' is something that is pure speculation. You yourself are a fanboy. We haven't even seen the competition yet and yet you are so quick to declare a winner. You're just as bad as the writer of the article then, aren't you, you're just approaching with the opposite viewpoint.
TomOfAllTrades  +   1083d ago
Your completely right, at the end of the day the article above is attacking Sony's PS4 for the sake of making their chosen platform look more impressive (which isn't turning out well for them).I get the same as you in the sense that PC fan-boys can't quite accept something which looks visually better in every area (It's a fact that Killzone Shadow Fall exceeds with it's top-notch graphics and the amount of rendering the engine achieve's).

But hey not everyone was quite born with the intelligence to accept the obvious, and it's nice to know that there are people out the can see the difference between black and white.
Kurt Russell  +   1083d ago
Click the WiiU tab go take a look a all the Sony and Microsoft fans comments there.

However I will say that Killzone doesn indeed look amazing graphically, but it looked as shallow as the previous iterations on gameplay... which in my opinion has always let the franchise down. The fact the PS4 is going to be pumping out games that looks that pretty, gets me a little juicy though.

I don't usually game on PC, I feel more comfortable playin on a console with my wife but this time I just wanted to try it out since I got this monster PC for work (graphic artist) I'm sure with time next gen games will surpas crysis, those are just first titles we see! Anyway, you do sound like a fanboy, Dylila.

If Deep Down was shown at MS press event, I would like it just as much as I would at Sony's. I think the people posting this crap are not gamers. Period.

Sony showed games, showed specs of a beast system, gave a launch window....stfu. I think to ask for more is just so damn silly. If you didn't like it, you may not like games period. And if you have such a niche for certain types of games, ie I only love Lumines or only play Halo 2, or Starcraft 2 etc. I don't really think you can speak for the rest of gamers the everything compared to your 2 game interest. The PS4 reveal trailer has over 11 million hits by now, weather you like it or not...people kinda care about what they just saw.

To say it was "current gen" is a pure joke. Nothing on PC looks like many of demos shown and for good reason. No publisher on PC has pushed it to such a level. As if you where expecting 16gigs of ram or something. Not even I was expecting Sony to have 8gigs of ram! I was expecting 4gigs or so.

And the whole PS Eye thing.. yeah. Its like saying to MS "its pretty much just a PSEye but its called Kinect"

"our friend control your character to get past a tough boss or puzzle does not sound appealing at all because the fun of games is overcoming obstacles, and this would cheapen the whole experience."

So...your mad at a choice to do something? You don't have to do it right? many people used cross-game chat to help friends in other games? Its like say "cross game chat suck because friends can help you through hard puzzles in games and its not the point in gamez" um.....I don't understand? Your mad at the choice and option to do so? You don't need to do it moron. So what are you going to do, if I told you I beat the last boss on KZ2 for my friend? I went over his house to do it, are you mad at me? Did PS3 MAKE ME do it? LOL! Theses issues are so stupid its not even funny. Its just sad.

Your mad that a PS4 won't let you play a PS3 game too.....not surprised. This was not made to play PS3 games...GASP!

i guess many 2nd party studios like ready at dawn,insomniac,QD working on ps4 isn't impressive

i guess still a free psn now with more features and free cross game chat not impressive

and i guess long history of playstation brand delivering content isn't impressive

sony admitted the fact cell processor wasn't a success now let's see if ms comes out and admits they rushed xbox360 and were trying their best to not create another RROD machine

So I read the article and this comment and I agree with you. The person that wrote the article, just wanted to spread hate. Also, you should wait until killzone shadow fall to come out first before saying anything other than "the gameplay VIDEO looks amazing" because playing a game alway makes the difference. I love most of the features that the PS4 will incorporate. Why? because that will just make every other gaming company up their product and the consumer will have a better experience overall. The touchpad has me concerned though.

PhantomT1412  +   1082d ago
Well I don't hate Sony nor I certainly don't wish for them to fail. It's a good thing that they are finally going to release a new console: powerful consoles ensure we get good AAA on PC too (many of the multiplatform games wouldn't be as profitable as if they were PC exclusive), and the PS4 having a simular architecture to the PC's may allow for good ports.

It's just that like the author, I was left unimpressed because the console did not have any particular feature that could make it stand out among the others besides raw power.
PhantomT1412  +   1082d ago
Well according to your reasoning, we could also ask why people have to tell if they're excited about the PS4 too.

Pretty dense complaints: If you dont want your friends to play for you, don't use the feature, select isn't gone and can be easily mapped to the touchpad, the controller is more than just a touchpad on a Dualshock 3. Flimsy reasoning, lazy dime-a-dozen opinion piece that bloats the front page.

I really think opinion pieces need a higher standard, it's much too easy to submit really low quality/flamebait articles and hide it behind "it's just my opinion". No offense to the writer, it's reasonably well written, but the actual points are incredibly petty

I understand having complaints for the LACK of features. But having optional features shouldn't be a complaint. This adds value to your purchase.

This is great so you can get your non-so-capable gamers into gaming, and help them out when they get stuck.

Don't post fan boy stuff and expect your bubbles to go up. Slowly, but surely.

Had 8 bubbles on previous n4g never gained a bubble since they changed it.the system of the new n4g know it's all bollocks when people like logic have tons of bubbles yet stealthily trolls everyone
BlackTar187  +   1082d ago
Garos you are 100% correct i never get bubbbles but people like logic who trolls all the time somehow keeps his. its a broken system and is broken even more then it used to but hey its get some good news all in one place. + everyone fights so its like a sick twisted thunderdome :)

He was wrong to be so hard on Sony. But he did have some valid negatives (share button replacing select; need for a touch pad). I agree that they will have an uphill battle wining the casuals with motion control. They would have to out-Kinect the Kinect2. M$ has a good jump on that so they have to be very impressive in that area.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I was impressed with the features and games shown. Square Enix was a bit of a let down though.

I'm a little weirded out by the reactions. I was impressed as well, but not everyone has to be. Everyone has their own view on things.

They're getting desperate now.
chrismichaels04  +   1083d ago
I assume you mean the Sony-haters are getting desperate.....because you can definitely feel the bitterness and insecurities.
smashcrashbash  +   1083d ago
Yeah we are the ones trying to prove that the PS4 doesn't exist after Sony said it exists with lies and exaggerations to make ourselves feel better. We are the insecure and bitter ones /s
BlackTar187  +   1082d ago
smash im glad you can admit you are a fanboy at least you know your the problem now you have the option to fix it.
chrismichaels04  +   1083d ago
You lost me smashcrashbash....when you say "we", who are you referring to?
kassler  +   1083d ago
These people who are so "unimpressed" with the PS4 are going to be "so impressed" when the Nextbox is announced with similar specs/services.
Count  +   1083d ago
I assume they'll just be unimpressed with the generation as a whole.

If he was a REAL journalist he would be writing good articles for a respected site or publication, the fact that he's here tells us he is just an attention seeking fanboy!
cleverusername  +   1083d ago
Because you're a blinkered fanboy of a different machine!
OmniSlashPT  +   1083d ago
Man, I was used to the insecure Nintendo and Xbox fanboys, but PC fanboys? sheeet, the PS4 is really doing some damage and it isn't out yet lmao

And fix the damn colour scheme on your site, it's hurting my eyes

I can't even think of something to say in response of this article... 'Idiot', there we go!
dcbronco  +   1083d ago
Fanboys are so irrational that even when the other guy is using parts not available to the public they call it outdated.

'Why we don't care you were not impressed by PS4'

Lol ;)
USMC_POLICE  +   1083d ago
My Wii u is more impressive to me than what I've seen on Xbox 720. And the past year all they did was focus on kinect games that were mostly garbage. I'll get ps4 on launch watch dogs and killzone 4 looked great.
Count  +   1083d ago
But the Xbox 720 isn't out yet?
USMC_POLICE  +   1083d ago
I've seen its specs and the games they put out this past year for 360 make me worry about the 720

Guys and girls, soldiers of the eternal Console Wars, you are nothing but tools and numbers for the companies that make these entertainment units.

There is no real need to have this blind faith or unwavering loyalty, you are consumers and they want your money, nothing else, nothing more.

All consoles have cons and pros, even the PC, even the Wii U. Keep in mind that some times all it takes for you to like a platform is to actually own it.

Be yourself, the individual who is aware and has no corporate master.
contradictory  +   1083d ago
just ignore fanboys
most people do.
me included.
Aaron Colas  +   1083d ago
I agree, friend!

However, being once a fanboy myself(veteran of the Ps2/Xbox1 conflict) I feel that our young gamers could use a little guidance every once in a while.

Who knows? maybe even those who now disagree could change their perspective sometime.

Here's to a bright future for the increasingly intelligent gaming community, cheers!

Why as I unimpressed with Sony's PS4....

...because I didn't see it.
clintagious650  +   1083d ago
"Yawns" Oh another one of these. Next.
EbeneezerGoode  +   1083d ago
Why I was unimpressed by this article: It was shit
arbitor365  +   1083d ago
how could you be unimpressed with the hardware shown? we are already getting games, day 1, that look better than anything on current consoles and the true power of the console hasnt even been tapped into yet.
mamotte  +   1083d ago
Well, here I go. I have three opinions to say here, and I hope not to be bashed. First of all, I was unimpressed by the PS4, too. Or, to be more precise, with what they showed us: I wont get into details -wich are more like personal preferences, to be honest.- but, that doesnt mean I hate the console. I'll wait for more information (And no, I'm not talking about specs, or how the box will be) and games to make an opinon. Sorry if I dont like Killzone.

That said, I was unimpressed with that show, I dont "hate" the ps4, but the reasons this "article of opinion" offers are plain stupid.
wishingW3L  +   1083d ago
I don't get it, from where are all these PC fanboys coming from? I don't remember a single one of the complaining when the Wii U came out so this must be that they are scared their $600 GPU can't keep with the PS4? ;)
vanethe  +   1082d ago
wii u cant even compete with current gen...
on another note where all these "pc fanboys" everyone keeps talking about ;) ?
_-EDMIX-_  +   1082d ago
Agreed! I own a PC and if anything, this is GREAT NEWS! 8gigs means that the ports on PC will actually use a lot of PC's tech. Mind you 4gigs isn't even required for MOST PC games to begin with.
