Will The PlayStation 4′s Features Improve Game Sales?

In light of poor sales of recent PlayStation titles, GamerXChange begs to ask the question, "Will the PlayStation 4's unique features, such as full game trials and social functions, improve the chances of a game being purchased by gamers?" (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, PS4, Starhawk, The Unfinished Swan, Twisted Metal )

If the games are good and they make good use of the features, then yes.

PS3 has a lot of good games (like the ones listed in the article). It's the marketing that's holding them back.

If Sony marketed games better, Lightbox Interactive wouldn't have laid off 24 out of 32 employees and moved on to iPhone games

Lightbox turned on their fanbase who screamed for a new Warhawk game and instead produced Starhawk which played more like Call of Duty.

Sucks they are reduced to iPhone games but they should not have tried to be so greedy.

Starhawk plays like CoD?

You have no idea whatsoever of what you speak

well great games will sell regardless. features are just there to enhance the users experience.

if i like a game i'll definitely invite my friends to try it out by taking over my controller.

I'm more interested in how these features will affect the bias in game reviews. If you can try a game you're interested in first hand, there won't be a need for online reviews.

Can't wait to see the mediocre journalists go the wale of the dreamcast.

Games must come down in price to match the economy state! Jobs are lacking and the payroll companys are paying to new employees are less than what use to be 3 years ago.Theres less money changing hands,because the common people dont have the same acess to bank credit that they had before the economy colapse.Banks dont lend money has before and some familys that were actually having a nice life 3 years ago now see them selfs with 3+ mortgages to pay and no credit or incomes to pay them,im sure that food for those familys is now priority and not games and other superfluous things like it where before the bubble blown.

if they advertise the hell out of the gameplay streaming features and sharing, it will sell like hotcakes

PS4 features may or may not improve game sales, but pricing the games at $70 will sure as hell lower game sales.
