3 reasons Sony will beat Microsoft next generation

Joseph DiGrado writes: "There is no doubt that Sony and Microsoft have been going at it hard for the last two generations, now going on their third. While each company has had it’s ups and downs, Microsoft is still yet to dominate a console generation. It seems that now is Microsoft’s chance to do so but Sony could have another thing coming for them. here are 3 major factors in which I believe Sony will have the advantage and eventually dominating Microsoft next generation." (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

I'm surprised they could only come up with 3 reasons... this site came up with 72 reasons lol

AngelicIceDiamond  +   565d ago
Reason number 1 is the only one that valid the other 2 reasons aren't good reasons at all.

Sony has some impressive tech in the PS4. But claiming victory over rumored specs of MS next gen is pathetic? MS hasn't announce anything regarding a new Xbox even exist let alone specifications on it.

More studios: Sony always had that advantage over MS when it comes to dedicated studios. MS opened up more studios in the past couple of years it'll be interesting to see what they bring.

Can people please just wait until MS announce something before claiming anything?

EDIT: Hmm disagree with out a proper reply saying why, Fanboys will be fanboys. Does this make make my comment better "PlayStation is the greatest in the world and will destroy MS aggghhh." ( :

The hardcore gaming community might not like it, but Microsoft might end up being in first place next gen depending on whether or not the new kinect appeals to casual gamers. Its the same reason why Nintendo had the most sales this gen.

Awesome. With that comment, I can finally figure out the Sony fanboy to the 360 fanboy ratio on N4G. So far, about 4 Sony fanboys for 1 xbox fanboy. Interesting...

Yeah I really don't get it why would this site be neutral only if MS and Sony and Nintendo were equally liked? I mean all 3 of them have a different approach and different styles of getting to people and after the disaster that x360 has been from a loyal hc-fan pov saying bad things about MS is being a fanboy? Pffft whatever dude.

In my books MS has a long way of reclaiming itself after x360. I effing loved the xbox but x360? Not at all. I freaking hate the things x360 brought to the table. They cut corners with the hw and flip flopped their target audience midflight.

It doesn't help AT ALL to see that particular fanbase here in N4G accepting and even liking the things MS has done after all the years of BS they've thrown against Sony and PS3 and still do.
MikeMyers  +   564d ago
insomnium2, you are wrong on so many levels. The PC has a very large gaming fanbase yet here on N4G they are hardly represented. It is no secret this site is dominated by Sony fans, and no I am not referring to the fanboys since there are fanboys for every sector out there. So there is no point in singling out the Sony fanboys.

As for Sony beating Microsoft so far what I have seen I like about the PS4. Of course price, games at launch and the online will give me more information before I decide to get one. Right now I don't know much about the next Xbox other than rumors and Microsoft's direction leading into it from the Xbox 360. So I am open to seeing what they offer. I have no bias like you.

Still too much not known. Like what MS is going to do as well as Sony. like the PS4's launch date.
PoSTedUP  +   565d ago
yeah i wonder if it's worth it for MS to announce the 720* at their event this year if they might not release it this year..
MysticStrummer  +   565d ago
Yessir. I'm a PS guy and don't much care what MS does, but can we not at least wait for MS's next move before declaring supreme victory?
jollygoodchap8  +   565d ago
Exactly...waaayy too early to declare a victor...the next gen hasn't even started yet! MS hasn't shown anything yet, Valve haven't shown anything yet. For real, wait until all the cards are shown.

this is sonys year to show what gaming is all about i know for sure sony will be number one like it always has been they just needed that little spark.
Romudeth  +   565d ago
Sony has a really good shot at outdoing MS this gen. They're clearly more focused on games and gamers and not side stuff like kinect or apps on your console.

This is going to be an interesting console war that's for sure.
JeffGUNZ  +   564d ago
haha how do you know that since we have no confirmed facts about ANYTHING MS related for next gen? Do some research, MS opened up several new studios in the last few years, they haven't really released any serious exclusives other then halo and now GearS Judgement in the last 1-2 years. All those signs point to those studios developing new IPS for next gen. We have no idea what Sonys shot is until Microsoft reveals their console.
Romudeth  +   564d ago
On the warzone #190 one of our industry insiders told us all about Sony and MS' plans for next gen. This man has given us accurate information before so I trust him when he say that MS' plans are more about having the Xbox be a media hub. This goes along with their past actions as well.

Have a listen:
JeffGUNZ  +   564d ago
Thanks for the link, but still, it's just rumors until announced. The PS4 is looking like they want to be a media hub as well. Both consoles want to be the focal point of the living room. I am not denying that MS is going to do one thing or the other, but at least lets give them a reveal before we draw final conclusions.
sony basically has a monopoly on the best games right now, that is all
brettyd  +   565d ago
Games...it's that simple.
CrzyFooL  +   565d ago
Cool story bro.
Chuk5  +   565d ago
You guys do remembered how sony ruled last gen with an iron fist right? That completely changed this gen, with nintendo taking the crown at the end of things and Microsoft gaing significant ground on sony. I saw it's too early to predict anything until we see the new xbox. Even then, who knows how the public will latch on to it. I mean hell, I never thought guitar hero was gonna blow up like it did.
ufo8mycat  +   565d ago
Nintendo took the crown? Maybe in sales

In games Nintendo was dead last and PS3 was 1st place.
cjflora  +   565d ago
This generation isn't over yet, so I guess I don't know what you mean be "end". The sales winner doesn't end until they all stop selling consoles, and the PS3 was planned for longevity. I suspect PS3's will be seilling long after the Wii or 360.
MattyG  +   565d ago
Maybe, just maybe we should wait until all the consoles are at least announced, and maybe even *gasp* released! Seriously, I love Sony, but this is ridiculous. Let it play out by itself with less of this crystal ball BS.

Just like during PS1,2, Xbox, N64, etc. etc. eras of gaming, I'm not gonna care about which company is selling the most. That's their problem. I'm gonna be gaming as usual. And let's not jump to conclusions. If anything, this gen taught us that anything can happen.
user7693958  +   565d ago
is a gamer desire for Sony PS4 to rule since they focus on the gamer's first.. they want to push the industry foward as fast as possible.
Nothing personal to the others

How about you wait until Microsoft shows what they have before you make like an article like this.
Dragos75  +   565d ago
I guess we will see but it will be easier said than done. I think sony is gonna have their hands full next gen just like this gen. MS has got the money to go the distance.
SpitFireAce85  +   565d ago
You forgot the 75 million sheep that bought the 360
for 3 exclusive games...worth playing Halo,Gears,
Dragos75  +   565d ago
Whatever works. Those 3 did what they were supposed too. If people think sony is gonna walk away with next gen because of a reveal, the type of RAM in the PS4, and first party games, you are going to be surprised. It will take more than that to take gamers away from their xbox/xbox720. I think people forget that Sony has alot riding on this one and I don't think MS would trade places with them for anything.

I wonder how much those 3 outsold ALL PS3's exclusives put together...lol that would be interresting to kno????
chrisarsenalsavart  +   564d ago
yeah but take out about 25 millions of them who had to buy another one because of rro. and how many you ve got left that
one thing for sure here in the uk, if ps4 comes out first and cheaper than the ps3 when it launched, sony will definitely take the market back to microsoft. most of my mates have bought one now because of the free network, the much much improved ps store, the fantastic ps+ and of course all the great games you can only find on playstation.
xxLuckyStrike  +   564d ago
The market is split and will remain that way. Most people I know who bought one console eventually bought the other. PS brand domination is gone. It will never take america back its XBOX country. XBOX went from 24 Million sold to 75+ million presently. 66% increase. And dont give me that rrod crap M$ fix many of those consoles for free or someone online would do it for $50. I've had 2 rrod and never paid a cent!!! Not even S&H.
JeffGUNZ  +   564d ago
@ SpitfireAce85. Compared to what, Killzone, Uncharted, and GT?
zoks310  +   565d ago
Being able to share and stream is going to set Sony apart this gen. I am afraid that if ms cant share and stream on the 720 then i don't see MS getting ahead of Sony this time around.
JeffGUNZ  +   564d ago
What do you think the purpose of all the rumors of integrating windows devices with LIVE? If anything, MS will have sharing between Windows tablets, phones, consoles, and PC's.

The way this industry is, you can never say who'll be number one so early on
Xer0_SiN  +   565d ago
ive said this in another thread and its gonna stick to this one as well. THE MAIN REASON sony will dominate the nextbox. nextbox is going to utilize the bluray format. well, guess what? sony was one of the founders of the bluray properties. royalty checks on every nextbox sold anyone? yeyuh...

MS is going down nx gen PERIOD.. Sony has everything on lock down.. Best controller, best graphics, support, & exclusives.. Best RAM, services, & value.. End game

Well obviously Sony is gonna beat MS, I mean Ps3 pretty much outselling 360 and it came out with a higher price point ant 1 year + later. Now think about that and Picture a more reasonably priced console released at the same time or before microsoft's xbox and its already gameover.
JeffGUNZ  +   564d ago
Guy. Look at how much share MS took from SOny this generation. Sony even stated multiple time that this generation did not go as planned and they took significant loss in it's PS3 division. Why do you think Sony revealed first? They realize that this generation coming up is HUGE for them and they need every advantage they can get. The fact that Microsoft hasn't responded with their reveal or moved theirs up shows they are extremely confident in what they have. Sony is shaking in their boots awaiting to see exactly what MS has to show. If it's better or even CLOSE to PS4, Sony knows it's in trouble. With the RROD and lack of power compared to the PS3, the 360 stole so much user base from Sony. Imagine both systems with very close specs or MS with slightly better specs.

Knowing the fact Sony will deliver is all I need to buy a PS4.
IIIxLEADERxIII  +   564d ago
I have had all the consoles in the past I would sell them rebuy them all back numerous times but I always keep going back to my PS3.Playstation is just a better system hands down the controller is smooth and it just feels better.Now last time PS3 got alot of port versions that made alot of games look edgy and jagged but this time there will be no ports and its about time.That was a factor that was hurting playstion.In my oppinion PS4 will blow the doors off the hells gate and shout out FATALITY!!!!
