Sony Trolls Next Xbox Reveal With “Beyond The Box” PS4 Ads on Xbox Google Searches

‘Console wars’ are a part of the industry, but with the PS4 and the next Xbox (Xbox Infinity, 720, LoveMachine) releasing in the same holiday season, the fight is set to be bloodier than ever. That’s why, on the eve of the next Xbox’s reveal, Sony is keen to steal as much thunder as they can. - PSLS

I'm going to get both probably and be really happy. Only thing that'll turn me off is always online, motion control focus, kinect always watching or some rubbish like that. Hopefully won't happen.

dedicatedtogamers1556d ago

I always wait a minimum of one year (usually it ends up being a bit more than that) after launch before I even consider buying a console. I've done that since the SNES era and it hasn't failed me yet.

ApolloTheBoss1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Yep. Same here. Won't get a PS4 until 2015. I've got a huge backlog on PS3 anyway and Sony will supporting PSN/PS plus until at least 2016. By then all the bugs will be worked out, and my backlog hopefully finished.

irepbtown1556d ago

I got my PS3 in 2008 (I live in UK), for several reasons; Price (it was ridiculous), games (not many exclusives) and price again because it was really a killer. I still ended up paying £400 though I did get some games and controller, and Guarantee.

However PS4 seems to be taking the right path and Sony must have learnt a lot from the woeful PS3 launch. Price will hopefully not be a big concern, some top notch exclusives (Drive Club, Killzone SF, Infamous) and of course Multiplats like Watchdogs which look outstanding.

I don't think I've ever bought a console launch day, I've already put a deposit of £20 at Game.

I am ready.

Sorry double post

1OddWorld1556d ago

Getting the system at launch has benefits and bragging rights. Its not all bugs and kinks and no games.

I have done it both ways and buying any Playstation at launch has been a sound investment. I cant say the same for Xbox due to the 360's launch, but I dont believe they will suffer those same mistakes this time around.

Angeljuice1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

If everyone followed your example and waited a year,every console ever released would fail! I've already put a deposit down on a ps4, I'll be there day one.

Launch PS3's were the best (in terms of features). 4x usb, B/C, ability to install Linux, card readers.
When they drop the price they generally drop a few features.

ABizzel11556d ago


I try so hard to wait a year (or a good bundle / price drop), but the temptation is just too strong.

As a PS3 guy,I really hope Sony has some inside info regarding the next Xbox, or else all this trolling will backfire

memots1556d ago

I have done that on every console as well.

But i think this time i will get ps4 day one.
I like how its going to complement the Vita and how the console will do 3d.

ScepticTankAvenger1556d ago

I'm going to end up buying the PS4 at launch. Unless Microsoft shows some insane exclusives today, I'm probably gonna wait until I need to get one.

MikeyDucati11555d ago

Yea I agree. I normally wait a year. I don't like buying first gen of the next gen. I like to wait until all the kinks are worked out.

sikbeta1555d ago

Since this day and going forward all the attention goes to the Next XBOX!

loulou1555d ago

i knew this was a playstationlifestyle blog before i even clicked...

anyway, seeing as sony have "trolled" the xbox announcement. i have decided not to watch it, but am going to put sonys troll teaser on repeat on youtube, and watch it for 1 hour solid.

sony are the best..........

deafdani1555d ago

If only I could have your restaint and self-discipline. Sadly, I don't, at least not when it comes to Nintendo consoles. Always buy them as soon as I can.

For the PS4 I will wait, though. A year or so, probably.

Next Xbox? The chances of me getting it are pretty slim, unless they say something today or at E3 that blows my brains off.

JuleyJules1555d ago

I have a feeling lots of people will do as you do. That is precisely why though everyone thinks the Wii U has failed because people are waiting for the big games. Developers see that and shy away from the systems. Then it's harder for sales to happen but I do get why you'd want to wait to see what happens. Besides it sounds like most games will come out for PS3/360 at the same time as the PS4/X1. That is not going to help Sony/MS convincing people to upgrade.

MysticStrummer1555d ago

Sony didn't need to bother trolling. MS trolled themselves today.

I was thinking about getting both. But ima have to start saving now.

ps3_pwns1556d ago

it makes sense to get the ps4 first as it has free online and more exclusives as well as blueray player to so those of you with an hdtv can get the full use out of your entertainment center. without blueray player your not maximizing your entertainment center purchase.

Condemnedman1556d ago

How can the ps4 have more exclusives? It's not out yet! And the next box will more than likely have blue ray player.!! :-\

InMyOpinion1556d ago

@condemmedman - Nevermind him, he's stuck in auto-troll.

sikbeta1555d ago

Too many PS3 games coming this year, so IMO there is no point to get a PS4 at launch, will play TLoU, BTS, GT6 and then if more PS4 games comes out I'll make the big jump...

Why does every first comment have to be "I can't wait! Day one!" or "I'm getting both! YAY gaming!"?

Can't people comment about the story since this is the comments section for a story?

AngelicIceDiamond1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Nope, because its usually a troll comment. The first comments are usually "PS4 will pwn the next box" MS doesn't stand a chance PS4 4 life."

It gets old...

FunkMacNasty1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

@ SilentNegotiator,

Have you READ most of the comments on most N4G articles... I don't even think most people here can actually read, let alone comprehend and put forth a coherent opinion about anything that is not black and white...or pro-Sony

biRdy1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

People just type a generic but acceptable comment just to get agrees I suppose.

ZigZagLagger1556d ago

I wont get either because my PC is already better...most likely.

chrismichaels041556d ago

12 hours before the big Xbox show and Sony is still stealing the spotlight. Fantastic marketing strategy by Sony these past few months leading up to E3.

ramiuk11555d ago

i be getting both also i imagine as with this gen there is games on certain systems that are must play games.
just hope there isnt a must subscription as i not sure i could pay both .
its bad enough with MS charging per user(live should be per console if at all)
i just hope the ps4 pad is better on thumbs as i used to get really bad cramp on ps3 pad.

If anyone can steal thunder, Kaz MacGrath can

Edit: @Root - I can't, you can't, ordinary people can't. Kaz can.
