Damn, this is awesome. -
I hope Sony doesn't troll the nextbox "too hard" though. We remember what they did to Toshiba.

Still, this will never touch the battles between Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Those days were hilarious and epic at the same time.

For those saying "stop with the console wars!!!", think about this... If there never was a competition between Sony and Microsoft you wouldn't get some of the great exclusives that we got this gen. Without competitive counterparts in this industry, there would be no incentive to create exclusive titles.

I say bring on the console war, and end the real wars.

seriously though... good to see it's all in good fun.

Hahaha! Luv this, Sony is not messing around next Gen. They are going full throttle on this Biatch!
Gets me very exited to see what the PS4 will offer :-D
Godmars290  +   620d ago

There was no "war" between HD-DVD and Blu-ray, just a delaying action. More so because even though BR always had more space while MS supported HD-DVD, the 360 only indirectly supported the format where the PS3 was BR's flagship.

Really hope things don't get that convoluted this time around. Exist on their own merits rather than empty hype.


Just so long as there are no crying baby doll commercials, thank you very much.

ummmm I kept saying if Microsoft requires online to play or start a game I'm out! Or if they blocked used games I'm out! Well looks like they will not require a online connection to play a game. BUT Acording to articles I've read they will block used games. Meaning I'm stock with what ever price they decide and there will be way less incentive for publishers to drop prices! Plus once I have bought a game I'm just renting it! Who will buy a game that requires a fee to activate? So my point is, is there room in the PS4 camp for me? And is there room for me in the wiiu camp for me to have a second console? (PS at the least with all they money m$ you should have made it better I hope you crash and burn!) Nintendo's stock should also go up!

Obviously, both companies are just having friendly competive banter with each other but you got to turn it into some kind of lowest common denominator fanboy battle. So sad...

"Edit: It's only one company that's bantering haha :D"

Graeme Boyd works for Xbox so i think that qualifies as 'two' companies within that banter. It's all friendly though, for some.

I'll say its ONE of the biggest days of the year for gaming. There are plenty of them to go around. I hope they do bring good news though as I plan on getting both consoles anyway.

Oh how foolish you sound in retrospective. Then again, you always seem delusional.

* Pay to play used/rented/borrowed games otherwise blocked.
* Still pay to play online and access features free elsewhere.
* No bundled headset.
* No backwards compatibility with 360 games.
* Online DRM checks every 24hrs.
* Mandatory installs.
* Always-on Kinect.
* Less focus on core gaming and more focus on TV, sports and entertainment apps.
* Only 5Gbs of RAM allotted for games, whereas PS4 has 8GBs all unified towards games.

Also, Microsoft had that boat outside for Sony's reveal. So they're just taking small shots at each other. Both are doing it, it's not like it's "only" Sony or "only" Microsoft.

Both these companies are acting incredibly juvenile, I know it's supposed to be "all in good fun" but it's honestly not, there is genuine bitter rivalry going on between Sony and MS.

If both the majority of their core fanbase weren't comprised of ADD afflicted howler monkeys they'd get called out for it and maybe then leave the trolling to 'gamers'...

"Anyway I think it would be interesting to see either Sony or MS trying to appear to be "the bigger man" one of these days."


You mean like at the end there where PlayStation Europe says "Best of luck!"?

People really need to stop imagining a war that doesn't exist. Dark Witness is right. The "war" is between the fans, not the companies. The companies are just competitors, not mortal enemies. This exchange is just a little friendly ribbing.

Yeah, but you know there is such a thing as being disingenuous, right?.

Also, it mite be easier to forget about the fanboy wars if Sony and MS weren't constantly fanning the flames.

Just kidding bud. We got our event in feb, hopefully your show is just as good for you guys.

BabyTownFrolics  +   620d ago

this is just N4G BS, outside of this nuthouse real gamers are excited for what both consoles have to offer. The only war is the one fabricated on this site to bring hits to fake gaming journalists and free advertising to console makers and game devs.

We are all pawns here fighting over nothing.
