GameStop: PS4 is clearly focused on developers & gamers.

I'm happy with the PS4 so far (from what I have heard). I feel like it is the console for me and I doubt there will be anything released that will change my mind. It helps that I am a huge Sony fan, but there is no denying that they are catering to me with this machine.
HarryMasonHerpderp  +   1076d ago
I thought the used game thing was still up in the air? not confirmed and not denied?
Moonman  +   1078d ago
That's why I am excited!
DarkBlood  +   1078d ago
and $$$$$$$$$$$ for gamestop :P
majiebeast  +   1078d ago
Translation:Ps4 will not block used games.
Walker  +   1078d ago

Rumor, speculation, and opinion all count as news here.
SDF Repellent  +   1076d ago
There are no still no indication that the PS4 won't blocked used games or games that are rumored to be $70. Everything is just speculation thus far. Of course, the disagrees will keep on coming on N4G. That is to be expected.
DigitalRaptor  +   1076d ago | Well said
Anyone downplaying the PS4 at this stage has no respect for the industry, which encompasses developers and gamers. Sony have made their stamp and earned the trust of those gamers who know that they're dedicated to bringing games and nurturing the growth of the industry (via improvement in aspects that were critisized in the past).

You don't have to like the games, you just have to give props where they're due, as a company supporting the industry in positive ways.
Bumpmapping  +   1076d ago
Well said Sony could have taken the easy way out going straight for the casuals but they didn't shows us how much respect they got for gamers and developers.
Novistador  +   1076d ago
Wait...what else do people use video game systems for? By default any video game console is for gamers.
DragonKnight  +   1076d ago
Well, many believe that games are a service, not just games. And many also believe that consoles have to have services and a focus on them. We can see the direction of the Big 3 in these areas and where their focus lies. Nintendo actually seems to have lost focus, trying to please everyone and pleasing no one. Sony has just shown that their console was built for developers and gamers (read: not games, gamers), Microsoft is rumoured to be going in a more services oriented route.

It should be fairly easy to come to the conclusion, based on how things have been going this gen, that many can be confused as to whether we are playing on game consoles, or service boxes.

"It should be fairly easy to come to the conclusion, based on how things have been going this gen, that many can be confused as to whether we are playing on game consoles, or service boxes."

So True....
Novistador  +   1076d ago
So because they offer other services, that means they don't focus on gamers? Sony added Facebook integration and I guarantee it offers exactly what the ps3 did with much better hardware and interface. Until we get deep into the life cycle of the PS4 (Same with the WiiU and w/e MS makes) we have to wait to see what will be delivered. Don't let a corp head from gamestop make this call, let Sony show us and prove it to us. This man would tell you anything to make a day 1 purchase.
DragonKnight  +   1076d ago
You clearly haven't been paying attention to business plans from others besides Sony, and that includes developers and publishers. As I have said, when the focus is on apps and services first, games second, it is easy to say that we are playing on service boxes. A phone plays games, but you won't see Apple focusing on gamers.
mochachino  +   1076d ago
I agree with the tittle.

MS of late seems more focused on getting non-gamers to buy their 'game machine' for non-gaming purposes.
Novistador  +   1076d ago
but it if plays decent games does it matter if there are services attached? Remember we are the minority in this gaming world, "casuals" make up the biggest portion of the market and if Sony does not appeal to them they could end up in a bad spot.
mochachino  +   1076d ago
We're the majority of console gamers and industry revenue.

PS3and 360 sales combined destroy Wii sales and then there's also PC core gamers.

The casuals have already moved onto their phones, tablets, and facebook games which are often free not $50 and probably equally or more satisfying to them.

Sure it will play 3rd party games but seemingly at a lower graphical level and provides few exclusives and incidentally reasons for a core gamer not to get PS4...if the rumours are true. I'll wait to see what they're doing but they do seemed too focused on emulating Wii's success.

cellphone play games you figure it out! Albert A.
Hicken  +   1076d ago
Clearly.
Shacojin  +   1076d ago
Sony isnt going to block used game sales they are just gonna charge for it each time the disc is used on another system! Duh
Dragos75  +   1076d ago
And gamestop is focused on making money just like MS and sony.
neogeo  +   1075d ago
I disagree with everyone in this post above me.
@classic200 a blind person can hear it.
@-GametimeUK- your a Sony fanboy
@ HarryMasonHerpderpIt's it's not still up in the air.
@ Moonman Your too excited.
@ DarkBlood Gamstop is going down.
@ majiebeast Don't put words in peoples mouths.
@ Walker. You don't know that.
@ AngelicIceDiamond your evil
@ SDF Repellent WRONG!
arbitor365  +   1075d ago
if the next xbox blocks used games, gamestop is going to advertise the **** out of the PS4 and its games, in response.
DivineAssault  +   1075d ago
