Sony's PS4 reveal was good but forgettable and did not have much impact on the gaming industry...Sony will try to steal some of MS thunder by revealing GT 6 for the PS3 and Vita but dont think anyone outside the PS fanbase will care.

I am not sure if it is the 1 million rumor articles that have been posted on N4G about the 720 or the fact that we know nothing official about the nextbox, but the hype level for the next gen XBOX is over 9000!

On May 21 you can either gloat with happiness and excitement or you can moan and jump out of a window with hatred.

It's all the negative rumor articles that have got peoples interest. I kept saying that there is no bad publicity, and Microsoft did the smart thing by not panicking and sticking with their plan.

Now the ball is in their court, what we do know is that Microsoft will spend limitless money on advertising and we'll be seeing next Xbox everywhere, television, movies and magazines.

The sad part is Journalists were ready to ride off MS completely because MS refused to talk and fanboys calling MS scared.

The past 3 months gamers and journalist were clamoring for MS to talk and debunk all the bad rumors. And now that MS finally stamped a date we're seeing a few articles saying "Meh, on MS conference" "It's no surprise now."

I understand Sony nailed the surprise factor but for 3 months people are whining about MS not talking and now that they are its "meh."

I don't get people on the internet.

"I am not sure if it is the 1 million rumor articles that have been posted on N4G about the 720 or the fact that we know nothing official about the nextbox, but the hype level for the next gen XBOX is over 9000!"

Since many of those rumor articles were negative, I guess you'll agree that the number of anti-Sony articles on this site for years translates to incredible support for Sony.

Up is down.

Black is white.

Noted.

"On May 21 you can either gloat with happiness and excitement or you can moan and jump out of a window with hatred."

A third option would be to forget about it until the next time you happen to see some gaming news. Many more people will do this than either of your options.

"Sony's PS4 reveal was good but forgettable and did not have much impact on the gaming industry"

If you say so...

All I know is the PS4 is sounding epic and besides the no backwards compatibility it's ticking all the boxes.

I think most of the buzz around the next Xbox is finally getting confirmation if the always online rumours are true or not

ThatCanadianGuy5141167d ago

Haha oh man.I've never seen anyone try to spin shit into gold like knight crawler just did.

"Sony will try to steal some of MS thunder by revealing GT 6 for the PS3 and Vita but dont think..."

its not like it was the 15th year anniversary of GranTurismo eh?
oh wait..... IT IS.

BattleAxe1167d ago

The Playstation reveal was really good, and I disagree that it was forgettable.

Things that stuck with me after Sony's conference:

- 8GB GDDR5 RAM
- New Playstation Controller
- GaiKai and what they are looking to implement on PS4
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- Exclusive Destiny DLC
- Drive Club
- Infamous: Second Sun
- 4K Movie Resolution

Part 2 is yet to come, and there's no doubt that they will save the best for last.

"Sony's PS4 reveal was good but forgettable and did not have much impact on the gaming industry"

LMFAO! Yea, just ignore the mountains of devs who literally have NOTHING BUT PRAISE for the PS4! XD

Because in YOUR world, GAME DEVELOPERS don't play a major part in the GAMING INDUSTRY. /s XD

Holy CRAP! So much spinning you're trying to do, I just might get dizzy... lol

"I am not sure if it is the 1 million rumor articles that have been posted on N4G about the 720 or the fact that we know nothing official about the nextbox, but the hype level for the next gen XBOX is over 9000!"

I don't think rumors of being spied on, always online, blocking used games, cable box focus, Kinect required (AKA NEGATIVE RUMORS) etc. etc. amount to the kind of hype Microsoft wants...

That's like saying a candidate for president wants to have negative rumors spread about him just before elections, just for the sake of publicity... -_-

OlgerO1167d ago

Thats not the case for me. I couldnt sleep for a week before the PS4 announcement. Which was in part due to getting a first look into the next gen. thats not the case anymore now we already have so much information. That doesnt mean that im not very curious about the next xbox but nowere near PS4 levels.

NumOnePS3FanBoy1167d ago

They still haven't revealed the actual console itself. Oh and trust me there is far more for them to reveal, so much that they always reveal information before the actual event happens because they have more stuff to reveal and show demos of. But anyway I can't wait to see your reaction when MS will be shoving down kinect 2 down your throat and how great of a roku box it also is.

True_Samurai1167d ago

Can't even take you serious because of your name

KimiRaikkonen1167d ago

Lol kinect 2.0 when all Sony showed was sequels to games that don't even sell. More killzone and infamous.

3-4-51166d ago (Edited 1166d ago )

Forgettable it was not. I've never even owned a Sony console but it got me excited for it's potential and what that means for the gaming industry as a whole.

I don't pick sides...everything serves a purpose, and I would hope Microsoft is smart enough to understand that and not try to trash Sony.

I want Microsoft to focus on their own company and not do the whole corporate thing and go arrogant on us, and start trashing Nintendo and Sony.

ps4 had some considerable thunder considering its reveal was 3 months ago. it's natural for hype to die but I think the reveal made a lasting impression. now it's time fir MS to shine and get there thunder rolling

MysticStrummer1167d ago

Can thunder be stolen this long after the event? I've always thought of stealing someone's thunder as an almost simultaneous event, or at least very soon after, that detracts from whatever they did or said.

*shrug*

Aceman181167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

yawn

gaming media if you can call them that always says crap to get hits.

greenpowerz1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

PS4 has thunder that amounts to anything? people know very little about Sony's PS4 offerings and nothing about the Xbox and MSFT's plans for it.

This is the calm before the storm and the storm gets here in 7 days and won't move on until after next gen consoles launch. PS4 reveal was nothing more than people smelling the rain in the air wondering if it's going to rain.

Any hype PS4 had has more to do with the notion of superior consoles bringing next gen than what Sony actually showed or boasted about. Current gen hardware had the media craving something new hense the little hype PS4 got until the media focused on the 720 soon after the PS4 reveal(almost the entire time inbetween)

In 7 days things will get real...

Until people actually see two finished consoles with finished features, system software, hardware capability, services and price and release date hype in any given time before what I said above doesn't amount to horse dung...

Some console companies have been known to consistently exaggerate console capability and offerings so real world hype "thunder" is T.B.D.

EDIT

Disagree?

More stories over an unannounced console from the media than a announced one, even getting more attention on a pro Sony site than PS4. N4G's community seeking out xbox news they can use for damage control and blocks and censors the good articles. People wan't to see what the consoles can offer in detail and can careless about issues or topics exaggerated by folks on forums with agendas

ThatCanadianGuy5141167d ago

3 months later and you are still talking about PS4 daily.Every gaming site on the web talking about it, Essentially every dev in the industry has spoken about it and had nothing but praise.

Even late night game demos on Jimmy fallon.3 months later, and the hype train is still rolling.All without even showing the console yet.Can you imagine E3? My god!

Blastoise1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

"PS4 reveal was nothing more than people smelling the rain wondering if it's going to rain"

What are you actually talking about?

...Yeah, nice edit lol
