NowGamer: PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara address the focus on core genres at the PlayStation 4 unveiling and how the console's appeal will be broad like PS3.
"We're Not Saying PS4 Is A Man's Machine ..... But It's A Man's Machine"
So kids, gilrs and women are left out.
What about dogs? my dog plays games atleast 4 times a week.
How much are you selling your dog for?
All machines are "man machines". Except for dildos. Those are for girls.
I was playing Killzone 2 one time and I set my controller down to answer my phone, my dog jumped up on the couch and landed on the controller which then fired a shot into a guy rounding a corner and killed him. Weinerdogs for the win.
Doctor Pepper 10! It's not for women! lol@the disagrees for inveni0, it looks like N4G is a freaky ass place when the lights turn off.
Is he implying that core games are for males only?
technically, MEN and Teenage Males and young boys have and still do dominate the gaming industry. know your gaming demographic, release the ps4 in all pink everything and I guarantee it wont sell 1/2 as much as it should.
What kind of games does he play? Sleeping Dogs? I'm sure he can't wait for Watch Dogs!
Knack looked gender neutral. And who decided that ladies can't enjoy some Killzone?
@inveni0 Bitch please. Dildos are for everyone.
The Witness, Knack and that Media Molecule puppet show all make the question of the PS4s variety in game genres pointless. It, like its predecessors, will have something for everyone.
A man appreciates Sony variety. A man's appreciation for variety and new IP is why he will buy PS4 day one and trust a company's first party stable.
You don't have to say it, I'll say it for you Sony "Hell yeah it is!"... LoL .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
I was just kidding - wow people on this site are too sensitive... -but all jokes aside- Of course it's for everyone why else do you think they make games like little big planet... or some of the casual games on PSN -But does it appeal to the hard-core Gamer sure, that's one of the things I love about it.. We might be the core audience -But at the end of the day it's for everybody or anybody who is a gamer.. if you play games or Love watching movies you will enjoy the PS4
I'm not going to say PS4's an alien....? But it's aliens.
Im pretty sure this comes as a response to the incredibly stupid articles released by a Kotaku writer criticizing the fact that, during Sony's presentation, all presenters and on-stage people were guys and no a single woman was found there.
"You Want to Die With a Man's Gun, Not a Little Sissy Gun Like This!" https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://www.hark.com/clips/b...
As long as they focus on core games I'm happy. That's basically how I'm deciding which next-gen console to buy first: who has the most core games on launch.
What is a 'core' game?
A new term coined during this gen of gaming after the Wii became popular, bringing a bunch of casual gamers. Core games are apparently games that are more complex, atleast according to Wikipedia. FPS games are complex? But also according to Wikipedia. Casual games are games that will appeal to casual gamers. Wow. Really? They later mention it's games that are easy to get into, but seriously, that first line cracked me up. I'd honestly put FPS as casual games. I'd go back in time and b****slap whoever made the term "hardcore games" and its current meaning popular, because now you have people who don't play anything but FPS running around saying they're hardcore gamers, etc, etc. Prior to the term hardcore being thrown around left and right. I always thought a hardcore gamer was someone who played and collects a lot more video games than the average person.
It's a core and it's hard and...smells alot. Can obviously be applied to game somewhere.
PS4 is for men and for wo-men, well, they can have a GBA. Silly thing to say.
Remove that hyphen, sir. Tis a disgrace.
Wow, so much attention to this Fergal Gara person.
Real men don't have time to play games......
Ummm WHAT !? so if a man plays video games then he's NOT a real man ?? What kind of logic .. I don't even ...!
Really? But u made time to make an n4g account and amass a huge amount of bubbles in that time. So, what's up with that?
And yet u have time to open multiple accounts to comment and bubble up yourself on a GAMING website? Not a waste of time at all!!
Kindly ask the mods how many accounts I have here and please get a sense of humor cause I didn't think I'd need to put a sarcasm symbol with that one :)
LOL. Yep, still n4g. Looking at comment, agree:disagree ratio and the comments below. Yep. Still here. Ha ha ha.
They sit on a tv couch getting fat with beers ?
I dunno what a TV couch is, but I'd like to get fat with beers.
Exactly! Jesus, people here don't know me very well :P
real gals don't stop men frm playing games here ya go bitch
Oddly, I agree. A real man works his entire life away to provide for his family and never has time to or for himself. I rebuke this current ideology of what a "real" man should be. Off topic: I'm kinda new here, what do these bubbles mean?
Bubbles determine how much comments you're aloud per thread. You lose them by making comments which generally don't contribute. You can read more about it in the FAQ page located down at the bottom.
^ What xursz said. Also you can bubble people up/down by clicking the green plus or red minus on their comment. <getting off topic sort of xD> It's really quite a dumb system since people seem to bubble up/down simply based off whether they agree or disagree; which affects how many times you're allowed to comment in general. Generally it's not that big of a deal and only the trolls hit 1 bubble but i dunno i've seen some actual intelligent conversations just simply end because people ran out of bubbles. It's just dumb lmao. I mean i've got 5 so im not really complaining haha but still. ...Don't comment here 2 more times asking about the bubble or talking about sexism in games or else you're screwed!
I think he means married men.
Of course they wouldn't alienate half the market. But I don't know many girls who get hot over Killzone specs.
I know 4 who did . But still i saw 3x times more interested or intrigued by stuff like Knack , the media molecule demo and Witness
Its an absulute MAN'S machine. PS1 Boy PS2 Kid PS3 Young Adult PS4 GROWN ASS MAN! I made this viseo some Time ago. Sony send me a box of goody's for it.
Most epic PlayStation video I have ever seen! We are not worthy, Digital Smoke. Smoke 'em! PlayStation is the world's greatest!
Lol Epic video man
What, some DB sitting there with sunglasses indoors (lol sepia filter?) in a dumpy apartment? This is epic to you?
@NexGen we as individuals define things like "epic" individually... "epic" to you might be a wild Cambodian goat humping a leopard while they bathe in mud... yet epic to us is this man's courage to express his respect and admiration for a company that has provided him with irreplaceable moments thought out his life. sure he doesn't own a Hollywood studio and a multi-million marketing campaign like other average "epic" folks but he does have an epic opinion that surely came across as well as any other. with that said the real tampon here is you to come here and try and take away the little yet deserved credit this gamer has received...
Lol Wtf?! Why would anyone........ah whatever. Each to their own. At least you got some goodies. Will you be making a video now, as a 'grown ass man'?
Seems to me he's implying he would like some goodies. I could be wrong though.
DigitalSmoke, your post actually makes a lot of sense. I wish I had a medal to give you. Young adults make the most mistakes, as it is these crucial mistakes that you learn from to press you forward into Grown Ass Manhood. This explains why I didn't enjoy the PS3 nearly as much. Perhaps there is hope for the PS4 and I after all.
WOMAN! Woah man! Wooooaaaaaahhhh man. She was a thief. You gotta belief. She stole my heart and my cat.
Two people don't like "So I Married An Axe Murderer." Jeez.
one of my all time favorite movies! my wife just loves the poems in it! to funny! "he's head is as big as a planet" and the undercover cop dressed like a pimp???!!! toooo funny!!!! i'll have to pull that VHS out.
@Jay Yeah the ridiculous of this article reminded me of the poem. Haha. I love the, "Excuse me, I ordered the large Cappucinno. HELLO!"
Makes sense to concentrate on the core gamers early into a new gen. They're the ones who are likely to be lining up to drop big money on your new system. As the price comes down, interest in family/casual will increase. Much like this or any other gen.
For their own sake(not us gamers) they really need to appeal to everyone because those first impressions just seem to linger on for years like PS3 launch price and Xbox RROD.
Are you suggesting women can not or could not be a part of the “core” audience? Are you also implying men can not or could not be part of the “casual” crowd?
The idea of “core” being synonymous with “male” is a misguided one not only for companies like Sony, but for the gaming community as well. Same is true for the concept of “casual” being synonymous with “women.” It's doing far more harm than good.
I do not understand why the Ps4 is a "mans console" for some of you and others are just for woman and kids. I did not feel like a "man", while I was watching the Playstation Meeting, but I felt something different, when I saw the reaction of some PS fanboys/girls, they got easily overexcited like some 15-years old. @dredgewalker, "real men dont have time to play videogames", who or what are those "real men"? What are you talking about? Todays medias are nearly for everyone, those big companies know how to fish "real men"/woman/kids/young adults/nearly young adults/granpas/grandmas/my cousin/my dog... everyone. Just put the "right" bait on the fish pole and swooop, you have a lot of fish.
PS4 is a sausage fest.
I prefer real sausage, at least it has some important function.
You prefer real sausage over a sausage fest? WHAT STRAIGHT MAN DOESN'T?!!!! And if your penis doesn't have an important function (assuming you're a guy) then you might want to get that checked out.
Just like spike tv.
well, its this mans machine
PS4 It's a gamers machine end of story.
You want a "entertainment" machine tune in to Microsoft Event WindowsXbox.
Microsoft manages to find it's self in another Sony article's comment section
Can't talk about God without talking about the devil, now, can ya?
i dont think the whole conference was "hardcore male gamers only." there are casuals in my family who were interested. my mom is hyped about "the witness" and she doesnt play many games
everything you people fight about is stupid... sorry but someone on here had to say it ;P
It is business as usual for SONY, they will have games for everyone just like PS1, PS2, & PS3. . You got to like the consistency.
