It's about ps4 and how Sony is going in the right direction to get their momentum back, this article really paints the positive side of next gen without any fanboy bias.
Yes,i am buying it day 1 and going to the midnight release and can not wait for it!!!
A man will do this as well. A man has never camped out for anything gaming before, but a man will have his reserved and be there at midnight.
Reading Clash of Kings?... or just watched the second season of Game of Thrones? Regardless, I'm with you. I will be hanging out at the local Gamestop with my cup of joe on launch night. Pre-ordering it as soon as its available to do so. and taking off of work the following day.
a man has finished Storm of Swords. A man needed to get ahead of the show and plans to have A Dance with Dragons done by this Summer. A man likes it this way as the reverse order makes things boring to read. A man can watch a show that he knows what will happen because the spectacle is much better to see and a man loves the dialog the show adds.
I disagree, but only because I deplore what the word "swagger" has become.
And YOLO http://www.explosm.net/db/f...
I think they pretty much got it back midway through this gen. The way they've been launching products, Vita, phones etc. That all in some form, link into their next gen console. Whilst clearly not straying away from what gamers expect from Sony. Games, quality, and value for money. I'm still interested to see what Microsoft got for next gen. But Sony have done well, and its good to see them continue on that path.
Sony never lost it's swagger.
I don't think even you believe yourself with that one.
you are right .."swagger" went to the WWE WE THE PEOPLE.. WE THE PEOPLE... WE THE PEOPLE
I believe it. The PS3 came equipped right out the box. Blu ray wifi internet hdmi Made M$ step their game up. Which is the reason that M$ is trying to turning its gaming console into and entertainment console. PS3 7yrs 77m 360 8yrs 76m Sony said slow and steady wins the race and that exactly what they are doing.
Sony dominated two gens in a row, then launched PS3 a year after the competition at a much higher price and outsold them. If that doesn't give a company swagger I don't know what will. MS gained market share this gen and started first in sales, but despite spending massive amounts of money on marketing and buying timed exclusives will end up in last place, which I'm sure wasn't their master plan. Market share doesn't carry over from gen to gen, so at the end of the year they start fresh. Yes I'm ignoring Nintendo. The Wii was never in the same category of gaming devices as PS3 and 360. It's a casual gaming toy. There's nothing wrong with that, but trying to lump it in with PS3 and 360 is like entering a go kart into a NASCAR event. Unfortunately Nintendo got their NASCAR vehicle ready just in time for Sony and MS to switch to IndyCar. While I'm at it, PC gaming is like building your own car from scratch. You can change out parts and make it technically better than the stock variety vehicles, but most people don't care to do it and the end result is still a vehicle that gets you from point A to point B, albeit with a custom paint job, tinted windows, fancy rims, and a horn that plays "Another One Bites The Dust". *mentally prepares himself to lose another bubble*
@Clarence PS3 didn't come with HDMI
@Dj7 Yes the Ps3 did come w/ HDMI on day one. EDIT: I assume you mean port. It did not come with a cable.
My thoughts exactly. Sony has kept me incredibly entertained since PS1 and shows no signs of slowing down.
Sony doesn't need swagger when they've got class.
Lol, submitted by ICECREAM. Awesome user name. I know I'm off topic but that cracked me up.
The swagger was never lost
I am intrigued by the PS4, one thing I got from their "unveiling" was that they were basically saying "Our bad" about the PS3. I mean even though this is N4G, when it comes to the PS3 we all know the price was too high, the hardware was too hard to develop for, and it cost Sony a lot of market-share that they earned in the previous two generations. Glad that they seem to be going about the PS4 in a different manner.
The PS4 will likely be expensive with that hardware.
How did you get "Our bad" out of that? The price was a bit high, but worth it. The hardware was the same. Market share is subjective, as it's not really smart to compare one gen to the next, since market share doesn't carry over; if it did, Nintendo would not have lost two gens in a row to Sony, right? Market share is that weakest of all excuses, a last resort. Well, maybe after the sales argument. And just like sales, it only matters for any given generation, but is pointless to reference when thinking of the previous, or next. I mean, nevermind from one gen to the next: Microsoft lost the most market share, and did it in ONE generation. From 100% market share and first place to roughly 35% and last place. From charging to play online to perhaps the least reliable electronic device ever to completely dumping the core for the casual market in the same generation. Seems like Microsoft's the company that needs to be saying "Our bad."
You're hilarious. Only you could take an article about Sony and twist it around to make sure they are above Microsoft. Microsoft actually loves people such as yourself because they know they are going after the competition in more ways than one. When we start to see Sony's most loyal and supportive fans being overly defensive, and basically lashing out every chance they get at their closest rival, that's when we know they are a serious threat in a market once dominated by Sony.
Sony created a console that was tough to develop for, thus they didn't get proper versions of third party games. The PS4 looks to me much easier to program and develop for, they are already saying how easy it is. Making the PS3 hard to work with was a mistake, Sony looks to have corrected it with the PS4-"Our bad". Sony launched the PS3 at a crazy $599 price point, and while we don't know the price of the PS4, I think we are all assuming they wont make the same mistake twice, I'd expect at least one SKU at $400. "Our bad". The memory in the PS3 made it impossible for Sony to ever update their online, it has looked the same since launch in 2006, they could never implement voice messaging, voice chat or anything like that. Looks like with the PS4 that will also be fixed. "Our bad". The PS3 went away from what made the PS1/PS2 such likable consoles, they offered something for everyone, and while Sony did try to fix this later on in the PS3's life, they lost the family and casual gamer's to Microsoft and Nintendo. The PS4 looks to grab them back with Move, their own version of Kinect, and a social media service where you can share everything...once again they saw a mistake and are correcting it. "Out bad". I'm not dogging your favorite console, but it's a fact that the PS3 wasn't really what it should or could have been, Sony was arrogant and I'm happy that they seem to be going back to what made their consoles so amazing in the first place.
Hicken, "From 100% market share and first place to roughly 35% and last place." -LOL, hey Genius, at the beginning of every generation, the first console released first is always going to be at 100% and by defalut, first place. Common sense, buddy. smh
Jek_Porkins, the PS4 looks to be everything the PS3 should have been and much more. I'm looking forward to it and they so far are doing everything possible to make it a great console. Lots of power, developers love it and the online services will be far superior and cohesive across various platforms. Not only that but it will work much better with the Playstation Vita and help spur more interest from potential consumers and better yet, publishers. I don't see many weaknesses so far in the PS4. Easy to develop so we shouldn't see inferior multiplat titles or constant delays, the network will be a major part of it and Gaikai could prove very beneficial, strong exclusives, and excellent relations with not only the big guys but also the smaller indie developers. The only things that I could see dampening it would be a delay of the console (some regions may not see it until 2014), a weak launch of titles, higher priced software, DRM and other intrusive protection schemes, a high price point (I think we will see two models, one for $499 and the other for $399), and online coming with service fees. I think Gaikai will come with a premium but the basic service will remain free.
U are on da money! That is what Sony were sayin. They have humble themselves and taken developers input in what the PS4 should be about. "Yo Sony is BACK with the PS4."
i didnt read the article but i asolutely agree with the title of this article. ps3 is a phenomenal machine and have no doubt in my mind when this gen is FINISHED, as in, no current gen consoles are eing sold anymore, the ps3 will finish in first place, but i do miss the plethora of rpgs that was available from the get go from the other two playstations. with the beast being released, i have that feeling us rpg fans will not go hungry again, thanks to the developer friendly architecture. day one buy for me, just like every other playstation before it.
Like strong man said Sony never lost there swagger don't get me wrong I like Xbox but if u want quality over quantity then ps3 way to go
im a xbox guy but im very happy sony and ps fans they made one hell of a monster i want ps4 and wiiu to do good its great for the gaming industry and more option is only best for us all
