It may be the best selling.....but it won't dominate gaming like I hoped it would.

You can only spread yourself so thin and I think they are doing that will all the options they are trying to pack into one box.

The more their is, the more that could go wrong and since it's all connected it could effect everything.

What if another RRoD type of incident happens?

They would then have to deal with more complaining because they have more customers, thus creating more negative around it because more people have been effected.

UnHoly_One  +   590d ago
I love when all the PS fanboys on here get all defensive about US sales figures.

Let me ask you this, just out of curiosity. (Those of you that live in the good ole USA, anyway.)

My question is, what difference does it make to you if the Playstation sells 20 or 30 million consoles in Japan? Seriously, what does that mean, exactly? It benefits you how? I get that you want your company to do well and make lots of money, hell, I do too. I like playstation games just as much as the next guy.

But I'm going to be honest here, I couldn't give two shits how much any console sells outside of the US. It doesn't affect me at all. I care how much it sells HERE. How much a company focuses their attention on ME, not somebody across the ocean.

I care how many people are going to be online in MY AREA, so I don't have a shit connection playing multiplayer. I care about how much shelf space the stores in my home town dedicate to the more popular console. I don't give a damn if you can't find an Xbox at the local GameStop in Tokyo. I'm never going to be there anyway.

I could go on and on, but I'm sure I already have about 40 disagrees from people that haven't even read this far.

Anyway, my point is, the Xbox brand is just more popular in the states. Whether it will stay that way is anybody's guess, but if I had to bet on it, I'd guess the chances are pretty good.

If you think the CoD crowd that plays online shooters and nothing else is going to jump ship to switch to the console with a crap online service and a terrible controller, I think you're going to be in for quite a surprise.
awesomeperson  +   590d ago
"switch to the console with a crap online service and a terrible controller"

I read your whole comment, but that little aside generally ruined the rest of it.

How can you judge the online service, or the controller, when presumably you haven't used either for the PS4? I do get your possibly referring to the mentality of the "CoD crowd" but still.

I was very happy with PSN this gen, my updates were slow however PS+ made up for that, and did more for me than any other service has.
IRetrouk  +   589d ago
I agree with everything you said bar the very last bit, psn is fine and plays online games exactly like the 360, there is no real diffrence other than party chat, unless you have ps+, i use both all the time, the experiance is the same.
Flatbattery  +   589d ago
Bit of a rant, but had a good point. Then made the whole thing irrelevant with the last paragraph.
UnHoly_One  +   589d ago
Perhaps that last line was a bit much, and you're correct, I haven't used the controller or the online service for PS4, I'm just assuming it will be largely the same.

But honestly, in my opinion, when it comes to online multiplayer, Xbox Live dominates PSN in terms of connection quality and features. There is a reason millions of people are willing to pay for it.

And it's also just my opinion, but the Dualshock stick layout is awful. Even PS fanboys will usually say that the 360 controller works better for shooters. Which just so happens to be the most popular genre among US gamers.

I'm not trying to start an argument here, I only have one more bubble to defend myself with, anyway. lol

Sorry if I offended anyone with the bluntness of my previous comment.
LoveOfTheGame  +   589d ago
Good follow up point. I agree that Xbox Live is better than PSN. Not that it blows it out of the water, it's just whether you would pay for a somewhat better experience or not pay for a decent experience that gets the job done.

As for the controller, it is still opinion but most will agree with the Xbox controller being better for shooters. Still if you have had Playstation since the first one, it would be easy for you to be used to the Dualshock design.
UnHoly_One  +   589d ago
I am used to using a Dualshock.

I just VERY much prefer the left stick in the "upper" position.

Contrary to popular belief, a lot of people would have encountered the left stick in the Xbox-style "upper" position before we ever held a Dualshock that had it out to the right.

The N64 controller for example. Obviously that is a weird controller design, but based on how your left hand held the controller while using the Analog stick, the Stick would be "up" from your thumb, like it is on an Xbox controller, not to the right like it is on a Dualshock.

But that's neither here not there, it's all down to personal preference, and like you said, it's not SO different that you can't learn to adapt.

@ "GrownUpGamer"- "-PS One vs Nintendo (JUST TWO consoles and PS won a lot of fanboys like you)"

So why do you have to exclude the Sega Saturn then?. Also there was Dreamcast during the PS2 era. Just because Sega stopped making consoles doesn't mean they shouldn't included, & I'm still a Sega fan, always liked Sega & Sony more than Nintendo. "PS won a lot of fanboys like you" yeah no wonder PS1 sold over 100m, don't you think?

"-PS two vs Nintendo vs Xbox(Xbox THE ROOKIE late to the fight. PS brand won more fanboys even though the xbox was superior)" Just FYI, the PS1 was a rookie console as well, & they managed to beat both Nintendo & Sega, the Xbox was a superior console, no doubt about it, but Sony played their cards right with the PS2 with their games lineup, & popularized the DVD format.

"-PS3 vs Nintendo vs Xbox360 (xbox second console with 77.2 million vs 80.4 million)" So was PS second console with over 150m units, plus PS3 released $200 more expensive, a year late, hard to develop for (with the 360 releasing nearly 4 years after the original Xbox which is too soon to market), & still managed to outsell & surpass the 360 within a year difference, there's nothing to be noticed about.

& don't let me get started with the PS3 fanboys thing, as if there isn't a worst Nintendo, Xbox, PC fanboys. Each company has their own share of fanboys. One thing for sure, is not that those other people hate PS fanboys, they hate the PS brand, that have always being the case whether you like it or not, that's why they talk crap about Sony & their consoles. As a PS fan, I won't deny Sony made their own share of mistakes & some things that clearly they shouldn't have done, but you can't pretend as if Microsoft & Nintendo has their own share of missteps. I know the last sentence Muerte put in his first comment is a bit arrogant, but let's be honest, 3 successful home consoles, 1 successful handheld, so yes, being a Playstation is a very good reason Sony hasn't met the failure column just yet. It remains to be seen what are Sony's plans with the PSV & PS4, time will tell definitely, it all depends on how each company plays their cards, but as of right now, Nintendo isn't doing that great ATM, but the tables can turn, still room for them to improve.

I just got one questions for all the bad rap we playstation gamers get how come I see so many core gamers defending kinect 2 as if kinect 1 actually brought us something good to bran with?

It's just amazing how xbox360 was doing just fine and the message was we are the system for gamers to seeing wii succeed and selling well and it became a family system

But whatever next Xbox coming out the same time as ps4 won't have the same advantage that xbox30 had so now it will be great competition and end result meaning we will get better content and better support

See how I made a comment without calling anyone fanboys or an,RS maybe some of y'all should learn something
Gamer Muzz  +   589d ago
@Muerte2494
You're posting Shipped PS3 numbers, not sold.
And yes, that is combined with recent PS2 sales figures.
Whats the purpose of that?
"One word PLAYSTATION"?
The question of whether the PS3 has actually outsold the 360 is very debatable.
In November of 2012 SCE announced that they sold 70 million units and they just announced that in FY 2012 they SHIPPED 16.5 million.
Nut nowhere have we seen sales figures. I'm still waiting and I reserve judgment until rock solid figures are released.

Also, what good is a higher number of sales figures when the console has lost more than any console this gen? By 2009 the PS3 lost over 4.7 billion While the 360 Lost less out of the gate and has been profitable since FY 07-08.
The 360 has also dominated the PS3 in the largest market in the world (America) out selling Sony by about 15 million consoles. Thats going to hurt Sony when the next gen gets going.
As for the Wii, well it was profitable since day one turning Nintendo a net revenue of 8 billion in it's very first year.
Sony has lost this gen man. The only thing they may potentially have when all is said and done,is a higher number of sold units on websites and blogs that fanboys use to say it's the best console ever. But, even that will still only secure them 2nd place to Nintendo.

Also,
"Microsoft thought casual was the way to go and it didn't work out for them"?
So what about "Move"? Did it work for Sony?
Kinect sales hit 24 million last February.
You may want to check the figures, but I believe that's about 10 million more than the Move sold. Although it's hard to tell because Sony will only release the number of units shipped and not sales to consumers.

In the end, The PlayStation brand is great and I won't say that the PS4 can't be #1 next gen. (More power to Sony if that's the case.)
When it's all said and done, You'll do well to find a bigger PS1, PS2 fan than me. But facts are facts, Sony hasn't cleaned up this gen as they did the two prior.
They have a hard road coming this gen. You Sony fanboys can thank god that the MS brand doesn't sell in Japan because so far, that's what has really helped give the PS3 a real shot at 2nd place this gen
If numbers matter more than anything (as they seem to) for you guys, then hope like crazy that MS never gains a foothold in Japan and Europe. Because if they do that AND maintain their popularity in the States, it could spell real trouble for you.

As for me. I have them all and will again next gen. I just want to play games.

uh.... It cant even crush the PS3 or xbox360. Hell, it can barely outsell the PS vita What makes you think it will do better for the next gen. Currently the Wii U are lacking 3rd party support. Once the PS4 and 720 comes out what makes you think that 3rd party support will spend the extra money, time, and resource to down scale a PS4 and 720 game to port on the Wii U?

Honestly I wouldnt be surprised if nintendo released another console in the next 2-3 years to compete with the PS4 and 720. Because as it stands, spec wise it may be very hard to port games to the Wii U.

And this doesn't even include the fact that Sony botched the PS3 launch, giving 360 another advantage.

I feel the only reason..
Microsoft has the market share they had now was because they rushed to market with a faulty product. People denying RROD having something to do with Microsoft's numbers are should know something. RROD weren't covered under warranty until July 2007. Xbox360 launched November 25 2005. So for a nearly 2 years, RROD wasn't covered. Gamers have no alternative until November 16, 2006. If you console had RROD you had to trade it in towards the purchase of a new one.

http://www.joystiq.com/2007...

OT: People have other choices from the start now. Sony hardware has proven to be more reliable than Microsoft's. Sony also has alot of exclusives. Microsoft is going to have to blow me away May 21st if they want to keep my business. COD exclusive DLC and paying for Xbox LIVE will not convince me. They need to upgrade XBOX LIVE SILVER to include Hulu/Netflix access and online play. Show me compelling new IPs. Sony has EU and JPN, so Microsoft needs America to stand a chance.

I would like to give my 2 cents but the problem is we really dont know what the nextbox will do. We dont really know anything about it.
I like the idea of it being attached to my cablebox and streamlining my entertainment.
I like the idea of it using windows 8 and having access to apps. That would really indie friendly and opens up for some cool uses. It would essentially turn your tv in to a giant tablet.
I like the idea of a newer more streamlined powerful kinect and it being standard.
But the fact is we dont know if any of that stuff is true.
Things we do know is that Halo is the biggest exclusive franchise in the market, and Gears is the biggest new IP franchise in the market so that is going to really do a lot for them. Automatic 10+ million sold from those games alone.
claudionmc  +   590d ago

edonus  +   590d ago
Your gonna have some people that are tired of Uncharted and GOW but they still have their strong followings. Games don't go from multi millions to nothing. I know I have certain franchises I follow and always will. Then there are games I am marketed to and find interesting so I buy them.
I would think most people are like that.

Wanting new stuff and then the reception of new stuff are very different things. New just for the sake of new is stupid. It's really about knowing your audience and streamlining content to them.

Nothing can coexist anymore. Something has to fail.

From what I've seen, the 1st party devs currently under Microsoft just don't have "IT", neither in talent or numbers...they're decent just not original or timeless enough. I want xbox to be good, I do... but other than Alan Wake 2 they have to give me something to look forward to and I mean a lot of great games. I'm not buying it unless I see at least 5 new franchises I like and the multiplayer is free. So hopefully they've bought them selves some talented teams and want to get on the gamers good side by offering the value that every other online service offers.

Had all the xbox consoles so far very happy with them it filled the void when dreamcast died, Domination I don't care at all I just want to be entertained.

Not even casuals care about Kinect LOL.

Oh I see, that explains why Kinect sold so much, because no one cared about it.

Everyone must be caring so much about that Vita then huh?

I'd just like to point out that the current Xbox has all 5 of those things and did not dominate anything. In fact, it's currently in 3rd place despite launching a year ahead of the competition.

The next Xbox will be successful but It'll probably lag behind the PS4 and stay well ahead of the WiiU even with the WiiU's head start.

Is it so hard to see that Xbox sold just 20+millions an the 360 sold 80millions?
Is it so hard to see that the ps2 sold like 124millons and the ps3 sold 80millions?

If you don't see a winner here then there is nothing more to talk about.
InTheLab  +   590d ago
Lol. The PS2 didnt sell 140m in 7 years and the PS3 is still selling well.

I'm not taking anything way from Xbox but I'm also have no reason to believe they will do anything other than what they've done for the past two consoles..

It's like people don't see the huge advantage PS3 had over the 360 at the beginning. I love both of them but people grow up with the sales numbers.

Is is so hard to believe that both basically sold the same amount because they are both good in their own ways?
