So kids, gilrs and women are left out.

What about dogs? my dog plays games atleast 4 times a week.
jtenma  +   511d ago | Funny
How much are you selling your dog for?

All machines are "man machines". Except for dildos. Those are for girls.
Deputydon  +   510d ago
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.

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?
fatstarr  +   510d ago
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.
Mykky  +   510d ago
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?

Bitch please. Dildos are for everyone.
FamilyGuy  +   511d ago
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.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   510d ago
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.

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

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.

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.
TechnicianTed  +   510d ago
What is a 'core' game?
kupomogli  +   510d ago
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.
Bebedora  +   510d ago
It's a core and it's hard and...smells alot. Can obviously be applied to game somewhere.
Dailynch  +   511d ago
PS4 is for men and for wo-men, well, they can have a GBA. Silly thing to say.

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.

Axecution  +   510d ago
^ 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 know 4 who did . But still i saw 3x times more interested or intrigued by stuff like Knack , the media molecule demo and Witness

Lol Epic video man
NexGen  +   510d ago
What, some DB sitting there with sunglasses indoors (lol sepia filter?) in a dumpy apartment? This is epic to you?
Raccoon  +   510d ago
@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...
Septic  +   510d ago
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'?
xursz  +   510d ago
Seems to me he's implying he would like some goodies. I could be wrong though.
PurpHerbison  +   510d ago
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.

Fishy Fingers  +   511d ago
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.
andibandit  +   511d ago
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.
Swiftfox  +   510d ago
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.
ThyMagicSword  +   511d ago
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.

jakmckratos  +   510d ago
It's a machine for anyoen who wants an amazing hi tech new console experience, an awesome interface for all your entertainment wants and most importantly the continued support of quality and diverse exclusives.

Therefore...yeah it's pretty much a man machine. Cooking Mama and Let's Dance are on the Wii.
SpinalRemains138  +   510d ago
Well of course not.

Any machine which plays little puppets slamming on tiny drum sets when I 'Move' them to, is definitely aimed @ kids. Not men.

The machine will be well rounded and multi-fun. For all intents though, it is a men among boys. It's powerful and smells like aftershave.

Maybe it can bring the industry back to its former glory when developers had some semblance of integrity. I'm looking forward to what exclusives will grace the PS4.

I don't know why people are saying it's a man machine - he clearly states that they want it to be a "very broad machine". I mean, a machine for broads sounds like a nice change of pace.
