Just hours before Microsoft will unveil its next-generation Xbox, Sony has directed its Twitter followers to watch the new PlayStation 4 teaser video because "it's a slow news day."
Sony's trolling Microsoft again.. haha, this console wars is getting interesting
I hope Sony doesn't troll the nextbox "too hard" though. We remember what they did to Toshiba. #dealwithit
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.
WELCOME TO THE CONSOLE WARZ!!!!! 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
@aCasualGamer: 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. @Army_of_Darkness: Just so long as there are no crying baby doll commercials, thank you very much.
I love this!!! Reminds me of the days when Intellivision was trolling Atari. For those that don't know youtube Intellivision major league baseball commercial. Ah the good old days!
PS4 is hitting the next xbox hard. PS4 crushes xbox like a step on an ant.
Something that they can't do to Microsoft.
Haha Maddens, thanks for making me laugh uncontrollably! Bubbles for that one.
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!
That was mean... but you make laught my @ss all over! Bubble for you.
It got better: http://i.imgur.com/dqPebA8l... Clearly this a response to MS claiming that no one in the UK would even know about the Playstation event or the PS4.
Really a teazer video, c'mon. What are they waiting for??
Lmao I'm loving the butthurt from SONY. This is the BIGGEST day of the year for gaming. Can't wait for N4G post reveal :D Edit: One company is bantering, the other is whining. "Dunno much about flowers, but I'll have some blooming good news for you at about 6pm." hahaha
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.
You are the only who's butthurt all the time.
I'm pretty sure Microsoft have done worser things Someone posted something in another article about Microsofts Xbox "Love Boat" when the PS3 had it's launch party in France.
I believe your the one butthurt LoL
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.
Biggest day of the year for gaming?
I will watch the show, it's all fun.
You might get to see an avatars toe.
Can some call falcor to pick up neverending1989 and bring him to the real world. Greenpowerz might need a ride too.
You must be feeling pretty stupid right about now, after watching that live stream. That live stream was boring.
Try harder. :)
i wonder how your tears taste right about now, oh mannnn
I guess you're right if you think the reveal is going to have a bigger impact than the Launch day itself..... LOL nothing to look forward to then I see?
ha wow.. and i just bet you thought the MS conference was amazing? haha, atrocious..
THE BIGGEST day of the year for gaming? The BIGGEST?? So this is one of the effects of being an Xbot, huh? I think the release of the console would be bigger than the reveal of it...
It's quite sad the level of delusion that xbox gamers have to create in order to ease their pain
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.
And so it begins! *evil-grin* Less than an hour to go. We "hopefully" will know more than.
Nothing wrong with a little banter. Don't look too deep in to this.
Every industry that matters has good competition like this. =)
This is what I like in the ps1 era!!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Come at them bro!!! No need to be nice!!
I'm still curious bout the PRICE POINT on the PS4
Just relevant advertising. You see it all the time with the Samsung Galaxy S4 coming up when you search for iPhone...
It sure will be.
so far we have seen no controller, no console, NOTHING new, apart from some cruddy controller pad thing and xbox has already announced 15 exclusives year one. gf.
sony lol this is now yours to loose the battle of gens keep psn free let the system play offline let the system play used games without ripping off consumers very simple ms is shooting itself on the foot
Man I can't get enough of this even after 3 months http://www.youtube.com/watc...
by MS horrible conference today no new exciting ip's to help xbox 1 SONY got this gen. in the bag reign supreme again. how long halo,gears,forza will draw gamer to old format game??? not much longer. SONY : play beyond 3 games ps4 has EVERYTHING!!
lmao it's like the school play ground
This is less a war and just good natured ribbing. People should stop interpreting this stuff as "war".
Really? Sony is acting like a caged animal IMO Starting with that premature & strange PS4 reveal.
You STILL keeping this vendetta up against Sony after all these years? Your emotional state must be hanging by a thread! So much hatred. On topic: Good friendly banter between two corporations.
Dude, let your Sony hate go lol. Be at peace as a gamer and just enjoy games, not companies. 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.
Or Microsoft went into panic mode and delayed their reveal to today. Seriously its all just rumors and we will never know the answer to most of them.
Go enjoy your cable box one and watch some nfl on smart glass, we will be playing games.
keep spinning that web, greenpowerz... you're sure doing a lot of damage control, now that the new xbox has proven itself to be a piece of garbage.
You don't give up, do you Green? THERE IS NO REAL WAR. GIVE IT A REST.
Sony is funny
-Slow news day -Oklahoma yikes..
What Goes Around Comes Around M$ did the same thing to sony back in feb. so its sonys turn ..
Next gen battle has already begun. Oh its on mothafukas!
It's good to see Sony and Microsoft having some fun with each other today. Maybe this is a sign that fanboyism is dying! Prolly not tho.
Look at this thread. Do you really think fanboyism is dying?
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.
"You mean like at the end there where PlayStation Europe says "Best of luck!"?" 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.
Yes I am fully aware that people can be disingenuous. You can either interpret the exchange as friendly ribbing, or you can interpret it as hostility, but ultimately what you see in the world is a reflection of yourself.
they sound scared.
So MS was scared when they were shooting at Sony in February?
Scared on how successful they'll be with the ps4.
My console can beat up your console
But it's not a slow news day, there is going to be a console reveal in a short amount of time, I'd constitute that as a HUGE news day in gaming. #XboxReveal
That was yesterday when Sony showed the PS4 in their teaser vid. Why? Is something else happening today?? Just kidding bud. We got our event in feb, hopefully your show is just as good for you guys. Edit: and just to clarify, I'm saying "your show" to Microsoft fans, not you Jek.
