Why ‘Greatness Awaits’ Would Actually be a Really Terrible Slogan

GenGAME writes: "I don’t know if that rumored “Greatness Awaits” slogan is real, or if it’s really for PS4 or actually for Destiny. I do know, however, that it rubs me the wrong way.

"I can actually understand the appeal: latch on to the term “greatness,” which seems to now be a synonym for “awesome” in the colloquial sense rather in the “fear of God” sense, and tie it forever to the PlayStation brand. I get it. It’s a cool campaign.

"But the more I think about it, the more I think about where PS4 is headed and about past PlayStation launches and some of the blunders they’ve faced, the more I worry that it’s the wrong message."

I disagree, I think its really catchy & fits sony well. Just my opinion but they earned it.


I just think its clear that sony is obviously all for gamers first & other things after & they are only keeping their fanbase amped for whats to come and that is, "GREATNESS" which to me means amazing games and they are proving that even in the last few years of the ps3's life span. Thats how I look at it.

It's satire, in case you couldn't tell!

The Slogan can changed at anytime. Greatness Awaits doesn't have to be the slogan for the years. It can just be enough of a slogan for Sony to launch a system and to get the ball rolling into the next generation of gaming. Greatness Awaits can just be a Slogan for a marketing campaign. Once its over the Slogan will change.

How could greatness be terrible?

As great as sony is they have not earned the title. What have they done this gen that is so great? I have a ps3, 360, and pc, and the only thing the ps3 has is exclusives which most are far from great (a few great exclusives are mgs4, valkyria chronicles, and littlebigplanet). Its online is improving and has great deals (only if you pay $50) but xbox live and steam have quicker load times for example comparing trophies/achievements. They have much more features that for some improve the platform like party chat.

The only thing that playstation has ever done that is great is actually trying to cater to core gamers (which is probably only because they can use it as an edge over nintendo and ms), and of course the ps1 and 2 are trully amazing. I guess bluray was a good move and gave them an advantage over the xbox. It is a disappointment and far from being great like their past consoles. They have lost their title of being great, but maybe greatness will await because i have not seen it since the ps2.

This might have been funny if something 'awaiting' didn't mean something waiting for you and not you waiting for something. OK, I'm not sure I worded this comment too well but you know what I mean right?

legendoflex1623d ago

"Await" can mean "to be in store."

The thing about "Greatness Awaits" is that it always implies greatness is in the future.

Maybe but in the context of 'Greatness Awaits' it suggest that greatness is waiting for you and not the other way around.

I think if it said 'waiting for greatness' this article would make more sense.

That is the point...It is waiting for come and buy it...

GalacticEmpire1623d ago

It won't have to wait long.

Next gen greatness awaits. And at at the same time, chaos from the fanboys on all sides awaits.

Game0N1623d ago

wow it never ceases to amaze me. these talent-less journalists latch on to just about anything to spread bad press about it. On a rumored slogan? Are you kidding me? Is is that slow of a news week? smh

Even if the slogan was " i love lamp" , i would still buy the PS4.

The rumored slogan makes the "wait" even harder to bare..:D
