The industry should thank Sony

Just as a spray of lighter fluid on a dwindling flame ignites it into a raging fire, restoring it to the brilliance and brightness of the past; Sony has done that with the reveal of the PlayStation 4 for the industry – and not only are Sony fanboys excited, everyone with any form of connection the gaming industry should be as well.

Great read. If it wasn't for Sony I would have given up gaming. I don't like Wii and Kinect so thank you, Sony.

Dylila1188d ago

@Dylila...

I'm actually glad you're on N4G...you bring some light to the comments section :)

*Hahaha ....I get a disagree's for thinking someone is cool ???

Army_of_Darkness1188d ago

Because of me, my mom, girlfriend and my girlfriend's sister also bought a PS3(mainly for Netflix, but that's not the point) LOL!
A sales a sale;-)
and yes, Sony had me since the PSone and they are Still the best place to be at for my gaming experiences!(well, excluding some of the earlier multiplats on the ps3, loL!)

The dude needs to work on his writing skills a bit but I like how he thinks. Also, we need to tone down this self-praising nonsense as it serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

And alowing companies to bring fresh new IP, from 3rd party to first.

miyamoto1187d ago

I can see Sony is doing its homework all the time.

It will not let video games die.

I'm thankful for sony as well, but regarding your comment....what about the move? It's pretty much the same thing as what the wii does.

dolkrak1188d ago

The difference is Sony isn't betting the farm on it. Move is just another option.

Kinect on the other hand has become the #1 thing for Xbox, and Wiimote was the center piece of the Wii.

Different beasts... Sony is mostly about core gaming, Wii and the last 3 years of Xbox were mostly about casuals.

MaxXAttaxX1188d ago

Move wasn't shoved down your throat in every game like the Wii. It was optional.

"I'm thankful for sony as well, but regarding your comment....what about the move? It's pretty much the same thing as what the wii does. "

No its not really, for instance the WiiMote does not contain a Magnameter, the Multi-color LED and Arm core processor that's in the Move makes it's ability with the Playstation Eye along with the PS3 to know the EXACT LOCATION IN A 3D volume OF SPACE ALONG with its internal gyroscope+ the Magnameter to offset sensor drift vs' the earths pole's. the WiiMote does not do that.

while there is a gyroscope and the camera is in the WiiMote's tip NOT IN THE SENSOR BAR THERE IS A BIG difference between how each concept works.

for example:

Wii-mote Prototype Designer Speaks Out, Shares Sketchbook

Click to viewYesterday you saw the first prototype pre-Wii motion-sensitive controller that Gyration pitched to Nintendo in 2001.

http://gizmodo.com/295276/w... http://gizmodo.com/295276/w...

while in siggraph 2000 Sony's very own DR. marks was showing concept and Prototype PS2 hardware on Home motion control gaming with the EYETOY can be done

The Medieval Chamber by Richard Marks uses real-time video processing used to track multiple stick-like objects that can be held by the viewer. By moving these objects, the viewer can move a sword, ball-and-chain, and torch that are real-time rendered in a medieval chamber with shadows and transparency on Playstation2 hardware.

Thanks for sticking with hardcore gamers sony!!

Did someone just say future proof non upgradable console in here??

I am not a big apples fan..

Edit: I meant to say not a big MS fan. Hard to tell the difference sometimes.

-GametimeUK-1188d ago

I like the Wii, 360, Mobile and PC games. I thank all of them for what they have contributed to my hobby of choice.

At heart I am a Sony fan and have the greatest of thanks for me over the past 3 generations and hopefully more heading in to the 4th. They are simply brilliant.

fermcr1188d ago (Edited 1188d ago )

LOL... these articles... i don't even read them any more.

Fanboys write articles praising Sony, then anti-fanboys write articles bashing Sony. Fanboys respond with more articles praising Sony, then anti-fanboys respond with more articles bashing Sony ... and goes on and on ...

TheTwelve1188d ago

Even Nintendo and Microsoft thank Sony for what Sony has done. They just want a piece of the pie.

INdustry should thank many players, Sony has kept true to its image where is has been seen as the cool console to have, I was told the clubs back in the 90's (in the U.K) had playstaion corners.

They really tried to make gaming for more than just the "isolated teen*

There are many other thingd too but Sony has done a lot but that doesnt mean to say they are the only ones.

Re-light my fire, your love is my only desire...

Everyone has contributed to this amazing industry.
Sony made gaming "cool" and made it mainstream.
Nintendo revolutionsed the way we play games.
MS changed the way we play online together.
They all whether you like them or not have helped to create new and great experiences and will continue to do so.

Jadedz1188d ago

For the level headed, non-bias, comment.

No FanS Land1188d ago

I would add that the dreamcast started it all for online gaming, then MS took the flag, along with Peter Moore and perfected the concept.

ThatXboxGuy1188d ago

"MS changed the way we play online together"
No.Valve did that with steam.

MS just charged us for it.

MaxXAttaxX1188d ago

When you say Nintendo changed the way we play games... Are you talking about the Wii motion controls?

Boody-Bandit1188d ago

MS hasn't changed the way we play online together. They simply advanced what started in PC gaming and brought it to consoles. I use to be a mainstream PC gamer and their online integration (Kali / Gamespy) was ahead of it's time. You could find your friends and clan mates in a millisecond and jump on to the server they were on within minutes. You could also message them well before voice communication was an option while your were at the desktop and they were in game.

When MS started XBL that is when I switched to console gaming mainstream. Most of my friends that were PC gamers migrated to console gaming as well but mostly because it's more cost effective. So MS, in my opinion, brought a fair amount of once PC gamers to console gaming.

Indeed Bubble 4you well said

Gimmemorebubblez1188d ago

I agree but they did improve consoles general online experience tremendously.

Yes everyone has had a hand in moving the industry forward, but some have also had a hand in moving it backwards and diluting it.

Either way i do thank Sony because they brought alot of new social innovation to the table, as well as an all around good console which is def. step up from what we have now. It has me anxious to get a new system and try it out and spend my money on new gaming experiences. Experiences that i feel wont be crappy gimmicks or not work half of the time.
