Divnich: PS4 Reveal Had No 'Material Impact' On Microsoft

NowGamer: "Microsoft has finally announced that the next Xbox is coming, but there was a distinct lack of interest from a large portion of our readers - had Sony's PS4 dulled the effect of the next Xbox announcement?

"Sony’s early announcement was a surprise to us all," said EEDAR's Jesse Divnich, "but I doubt it had any material impact on when Microsoft planned to announce their next hardware." (Jesse Divnich, Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

The Xbox 3 reveal is suffering from being second to announce, in that people were totally expecting it. Unlike the PS4 reveal announcement which came out of nowhere, I remember people didn't even know if it even would be the PS4, the speculation and hype went through the roof. So, being the second to announce is always going to make less of an impact.

Hey Listen!

I remember that right before the PS4s announcement people who claiming how the PS3 had a lot of life left in it and that we didn´t need a new generation of consoles. All that changed when Sony announced the date of the PS4 event which caused everyone to change their minds.

I wasnt expecting the PS4 to be unveiled so early. I was expecting it to be revealed at e3 with a release at the end of 2014.

@Count

Well it wont affect the hardware or the software for the PS4 at all because its a bit late to change any of that. However some of the features that Microsoft might announce for Live could go into PSN later on in the future. The same could happen with some new features that Sony announces for PSN.

"All that changed when Sony announced the date of the PS4 event which caused everyone to change their minds."

You're right, the PS4 reveal was so well done that it changed a lot of peoples minds about next gen. They liked what they saw and now they're up for it.

@logic below - Read my comment again, you'll not my use of the words "a lot of peoples minds" as in a lot of people, not all. I would read carefully before criticising someone in the future.

As for explaining...

What difference do the launch dates make? We're talking about the announcements here. It's mostly to do with the element of surprise I guess, MS just don't have that anymore. People have already had a glimpse of next gen, the novelty will be worn thing by the time MS show thier hand.

You don't know what everyones reaction was. Unless your the Messiah and have the ability to be at all places at all times and hear everyones thoughts/feelings.
Some could have been positive, some could have been negative, and others could have been mixed.

Also, could u explain how Microsoft announcing second will have "less of an impact" when BOTH consoles are launching at the SAME time period?
zebramocha  +   492d ago
@logic there is nothing Ms could better other than games to have a better conference than Sony.

@nuke only criticism I've seen is,them not showing what the console looks like.

Before the vita was launched the 3ds had a significant price cut.

@ LogicWins...
I know you're trying to play "the voice of reason" card so your bubbles won't take a hit. But the general consensus from gamers and developers, remains very positive. The only negative attention is coming from xbox fans claiming to be PC gamers. People are going into Micorosoft's meeting with questions that need answers. Those rumors have hurt and need to be addressed.

Will this be Kinect focused? (kinect built in)

Can you assure the gamer that this is about games. (lack of core games at the end of xbox360 life span)

Will you still charge for xbox live to play online? (not being able to use Netflix,Hulu,ect without XBL GOLD)

Will the console be "Always-On"? (require a connection to combat piracy)

I feel that if even one of these aren't answered, then it will be seen as nothing but a failure. Also if they do plan to launch close together, than people are really going to have to choose. It will come down to America, because it's the last stand for the Xbox brand. Sony's dominance in both EU and JPN will guarantee Sony's lead. I feel America will be split. Microsoft doesn't have that year advantage they had last time. People actually have a choice this time around.

Playstation is a very strong brand associated with gaming. Time to draw your lines in the sand fellas. Pick a side.

@LOGICWINS

MS showing 2nd and revealing a less powerful system(from rumors) will not get people excited. they need to pull some surprises, they know that and I'm sure they will do. I think they will show off some of the big exclusiv games they are saving for E3.

true, even if the PS4 gets 40% and Durango gets 60% Sony will be happy because the PS4 will dominate in the rest of the world even more than the PS3 because of a quick launch and good price.

I believe Sony made some comment a while ago that they wouldn't risk launching after Ms so it can be implied they would announce before Ms as well.

Here is the ironic part. The fans will never see the situation as anything other than a good thing. If Ms announced first, Sony fans would say Sony is saving the best for last. Sony announcing first, Sony fans say its getting the jump on Ms. Its a win win in their eyes either way.

Ms fans would feel the same if the situation was reversed. Neutral fans see it as one company announces and then the other has time to revise their announcement but overall it should be another good show.
nukeitall  +   492d ago
On the contrary, revealing second gives MS a chance to respond to the criticism Sony received and make a bigger impact.

It also let's MS formulate a strategy to combat Sony's presentation.

So there are benefits and cons to both and, in the grand scheme of it all, it is negligible. It is the final execution that matters.

Remember how the PS Vita was praised to high heavens while 3DS lauded as terrible, yet the complete reverse happened in the market.

Nintendo made a mistake, but executed well in the end and saved the 3DS fate while Sony has a bombed product on their hand so far.

That is reality versus fanboy hype. Reality always win!

"The Xbox 3 reveal is suffering from being second to announce, in that people were totally expecting it."

not according to game stop surveys, no one outside the internet world is aware of the next box reveal, regardless of people like you and me who are expecting it, there are more of them than there are of us.

i remember when an amount of people on my school were getting hyped about the ps4...that was 3 months ago, that hype is pretty much gone. All Sony has left to fuel that hype is the showing the console itself.

Ms in the other hand has A TON OF CONTENT to reveal at e3 and probably will try not to keep people waiting and release the console asap.Because if you think about it there is nothing holding them back to the previous gen, no new game releases or nothing.

Sony did the mistake of realeasing two new exclusives this year ;TLOU and BTS which need breathing space to sell well, and releasing the ps4 as soon as them would make them suffer.

The Xbox next event, will be just as well attended as the PS4 event, if not even more so. I think the PS4 supporters have succeeded in drawing lots of attention to the Xbox, due to the constants search for negative rumors and at times treating them as facts.

What all of this has done, is peaked a lot of interest as to whether the rumors will be proven true or false. It has only really succeeded in lowering expectations for the Xbox. So if M$ shows an evenly capable and supported console, it could low enthusiasm that was bit among many who thought PS4 was the greatest console ever. If the rumor prove true, some of it could hurt M$ if they don't show some ground breaking games and features Sony doesn't and can provide.

8 GIG of GDDR5 RAM sound really good, but it is really no better than DDR3 if the Graphics chips do not push the bandwidth. If Xbox next has a better Video chip and regular DDR3 RAM, it will out perform the PS4. So people really needed to calm down and wait and see what M$ reveals and not take the rumors as seriously as they did. M$ could fail to deliver, but trying to hard to predict that is careless at best.

Dear MS i would like to believe that but no y'all did have to scramble at the last moment to get it together since sony for the 1st time in a long time had a very smooth launch announcement

now there is big expections on May 21st make a great 1st impression like sony please, we need the old MS like the one in 2005 that cared about core gamers and were serious about competition

talk about the specs in detail
don't talk too much about kinect
show games
than out to rest the rumors of always online
show more games
talk about xblive reward program something like PSN:plus
and end it by showing more games
JeffGUNZ  +   491d ago
Scramble? Sony announced their PS4 on 2/20/12. It'll be 3 months after that date when MS announces theirs. That's not really scrambling. You'd have a point if this happened a few weeks after and they threw together a half-hazzard show, but it appears that this is going to be a huge event. being televised and what not. Those types of deals take time to establish. This was MS agenda the entire time as far as we know. I do agree the reveal needs to give a taste of hardcore games. I want to see one new IP for the reveal and several more for E3.
hiredhelp  +   492d ago
Firstly MS never gonna admit if they concerned about ps4.
Secondly doesn't matter if MS does have better system or the same for me it's about the games.
Sony has no Red tape to cut threw no classes no BS.
Sony will in courage innovation and support any of there studios and buy into new studios dev's when they see talent. Something MS skimps on.
Sony started off slow but look at them now huge fan base huge library games to boot.
There only other fault witch MS does well is advertisement but let's face it good games sell themselves however long takes.
Next gen has already been WON.
JeffGUNZ  +   491d ago
Come on. Good games sell themselves? No they don't. Advertising does. Look at the sales for Halo then compare them to Killzone. Look at the sales of Gears and compare them to Uncharted. Even away from numbers, look at it this way. Ask a random person who "Nate" is in the gaming world and see their response. Now ask that same person who "Master chief" is and see their response. Advertising moves merchandise, it's simple. You can't think in terms of you and I, as we follow gaming closely, so we know what games are coming. We are not the average markup of the gaming community, a lot of people have no idea about games like heavy rain. Sony needs to step it up with advertising and they will sell more games. Their games are great, so it would only benefit them.

@shadowgeist00
exactly, it come's down to support for your platform you are releasing. Content is King, it really does not matter in the grand scheme who release when or at what time, other than can the company support the new platform with content over time that i will enjoy as a consumer of the product they release, and if Im happy at the software and service's they provide me.

And Since from my own experience none of the big three have let me down in the past, all three of the companies . Nintendo Microsoft and Sony have all provided me with good Software and services.

do I have a preference among the three, sure every Gamer has preference's to the type's of Game's they play. but it's not like there is no content from all three platform's that i cannot find enjoyment from.

All three has Software that i like, and sofar plenty of it.

so releasing later after another platform releases is of no real bother to me or my family because we end up getting it later anyway.

We dony really know that since we dont know what they are bringing to the table.

We have a bunch of rumors that have been speculated on and thats pretty much it.

What if XBL gold is reduced or made free or they start giving away old games like PS+.

Or always online refers to the console attacking like a media server so with it being connected to your cable box you can stream your recorded shows and data to your phone or any computer anywhere.

The list goes on and on because the truth is Sony right now is fighting a ghost. The nextbox has as much potential to be the best console ever as it does the worst.

So you really think the XBox 720 specs are actually more powerful than the PS4? LMFAO.

This article is meaning less and you can very much sum it up as a hit seeker, i mean how can you evaluate something when nothing has been shown on the Microsoft side of the house unless you work for Microsoft or have a family member or something. There is no way of telling of any kind of impact if any Sony has made. please look for other things to write about instead of non-sense, and by the way everything has an effect in this world and for every action there is a reaction, did it happen with Sony and Microsoft unknown, so i say leave at that until Microsoft shows their cards.Have a great day.

I didn't see much from Sony and I don't expect much from Microsoft.

The real event will be E3.

MS has already cautioned their announcement. Stating that there will be more blockbuster games at E3. I am sure Sony is planning the same.

At the press event, I expect Microsoft to be globally focused on all the console capabilities whereas Sony was only focused on gaming.
solidworm  +   492d ago
It will have zero impact on the next box because the 720 is an already built console and so any ideas Sony may have given them with their reveal, well its way too late to implement them at this point without a total rebuild and that would cost MS billions and make them late to the party. Only time will tell but if the nextbox is lacking in comparison to the ps4 then MS will just have to suck it up and concentrate on the games, something they have failed badly at this gen.

Actually it's not true. They changed the amount of ram in 360 in last moment. They still can change , even sony can change things since they said they are not done yet with the controller and the console.

They barely managed to remain second with a weaker console form Nintendo and a weaker Sony.How will they fair with both of them on the same level?
Sevir  +   492d ago
Id argue that MS's impending announcement will also have no material impact on Sony and its plans fi
Both Companies have a clear vision for the next generation of consoles and they are both going in a different direction. Sony seems squarely on promoting the games and the socially connected aspect of the gamers of today while addressing the needs of the hardcore gamers of yesteryear.

while we don't have concrete evidence as to what MS has planned for the Xbox, the fact that TV and entertainment is also placed in the catch description for the reveal, lends plenty of credence to the already numerous, though unconfirmed, reports that Games will not be the sole point of the console.

What MS will bring to the console market will be innovative, but that portion of the innovation will be geared towards a different audience.

While Sony sees gamers as its core and is marketed directly for them. Only time will tell if either of their visions captures the attention of their desired market. One thing is for certain I'll own The console that addresses my needs as a gamer, and right now the only company that's looks to address that has already shown me what I needed.
Reborn  +   492d ago
Both companies are seeming to come across with different objectives. It's down to the consumers to decide, once both options are clearly laid out, which is in line with what they believe to be value for money.

Of course, after Sony announcement people are watching what Microsoft do. On the flip side, you could also argue that Sony has already captured people by going first. Especially with the rumours, they are going to look for answers/clarification.

Either way, it's going to be interesting to see what MS is doing for next gen.

What did Sony really bring to the announcement? A bunch of graphical models, stupid social features, commitments that developers are doing stuff, and the announcement of a bunch of games. Only a few of which will be available for the holidays, and even fewer will be exclusives.

Don't get me wrong, I expect much the same from MS. Nice graphic models, more stupid social features, commitments from developers, and a bunch of games. Only a few of which for the holidays and fewer exclusives.

Where MS might outshine Sony's press conference is on the Kinect and media side. Sony didn't really talk about Move or media capabilities. Also, MS has centered a lot of their 360 world around Live. I expect them to show how much better Live will be going forward.

Very nice. Say bad stuff about Sony's announcement and then jump to say that you think the same thing about Microsoft then continue by saying that you think Microsoft will outshine Sony's conference.Your attempt to escape from disagrees is very transparent.By your statement you are obviously on Microsoft' side with a pathetic attempt to stave off disagrees from you saying bad things about Sony's announcement.

I was just stating that MS "MIGHT" outshine Sony's conference by those items. Sony left an opening there. But, that definitely won't sway gamers. It will only help cash-strapped, gamers that need the console to do more to justify its cost.

@14Feb-R

Kinect is something that MS has been more successful at on the casual side than sony. Personally, outside of a few titles, Kinect isn't great. And those titles are not great. But, it does do very well for certain types of casual games (Dance, rail shooters, and some sports).
BlackCarrot  +   492d ago
Was the 360 or the PS3 announced first?
The answer to my title: I don't have a fucking clue, it was ages ago, and in the long run perhaps it won't make any odds.

However, announcing PS4 first has, in my humble consumer's opinion, shown that Sony is quite confident in what they do. Sony are the ones who got me hyped for the next-gen, Sony are the ones who have got their stuff out in the open.

Now we just have to wait and see what Microsoft has to offer, I'm sure it won't be too different (always online would cost MS a lot of sales); the big question has always been a simple one if we're honest with ourselves: which one will be cheaper?

I listen to a lot of podcasts and most media were being told late April and it was put back a month. No smoke without fire case, I believe.
Yet ps4 announcement had no effect ??

This idea that MS ONLY have to respond to the reveal is also wrong. Sony have only lifted the skirt of ps4. You know most of what's there but still stuff to reveal and potential surprises held back.
