Winning the console wars: Sony's not-so-secret weapon

Destructoid - This next generation of gaming is looking to provide the biggest industry shake-up in decades, with dedicated console manufacturers facing ever-growing competition from tablet devices, smartphones, and an upcoming wave of budget consoles like the Ouya.

This is why I was so bewildered by Sony’s over-hyped PlayStation 4 reveal earlier this month, an event which seemed almost completely ignorant of this coming shift in the marketplace. I’d expected to bear witness to some sort of master plan from one of the leading console manufactures. Instead we were treated to the non-news of another Final Fantasy game and a two-year late Diablo III port, each new awkward PR robot that took the stage helping to reinforce the idea that Sony had no idea what they were doing.

A man is...unsure what conference a writer was watching on the 20th. A man saw many interesting titles and nothing but praise from developers and fans. A man is more hyped for this console than any in the past and will buy launch day for the first time.

I did not bother to read any more. Phones and phone games in a box like Ouya is not a growing competition, it is not even in the same league.

It is beyond me how a little faction of gaming reporters have started to think mobile and tablet games is taking over for real games on consoles and pc.

I have no clue what world you people live in, it certainly is not the same world I live in.

i agree with your point. i read the article and the author basically explains why ps+ is a better value than any services out there; therefore it's key to winning next gen. ;) i'll still click agree even though you didnt read it

I stopped reading at that exact point also. Hahaha

If they come up with a service like Netflix but for games it will destroy the competition! With the full Playstation libraby it would be HUGE! (PS1,PS2,PS3,PS4,PSP,PSV!!!)
