6 things Sony can do to win E3

With arguably the most important E3 in recent history upon us what can Sony do to keep their mindshare? Is there ever really a victor of E3? We get great memes, facepalms, and mind blowing megatons every E3, but I suspect this E3 will be more explosive than most.

DRM is such a touchy issue. I'm sure it could work once it's done right but there are so few rare examples of that. Really one of the biggest problems I have on Steam for example because of the constant need to authenticate. Hopefully they have something better to offer.

To be honest, as it stands at the moment, Sony only has to do ONE thing: Turn up.

Black-Helghast2013d ago (Edited 2013d ago )

They do have to turn up but the facts they mention in the article make a lot of sense. If Sony does all of those 6 things right, Next Gen is theirs. No doubt about it. I personally don't care because Sony has never disappointed since PS1 and I trust in them. But if they want for PS4 to win Next Gen, they should follow these 6 steps.

Sony doesn't have to do anything to win E3. They won the entire next generation as of 12:01pm EST May 21st 2013.

MS handed them the next generation on a silver platter. All Sony has to do is say thank you, it wasn't necessary cause we would've smacked dat @zz anyway, but thanks none the less.

Next generation will be the 1st generation that I will only own 1 console. That console is the PS4.

Sony just has to remove DRM (no used games crap) from the PS4, and prohibit anybody from using it... automatic win.

That'd be awesome BUT if a publisher decides that's what they wanted to do for the game they spent probably millions and years making, I think that's fair.

No, it's illegal. I can do the hell i want with a game i purchased. Unfortunately the Americans don't have the balls to forbid this DRM... let's just hope the European Union has the balls to prohibit the sales of consoles that have this DRM.

Agreed, even if a publisher did implement something how's that gonna sell in reality? It's already been a flop with online passes hence EA dropping it.

If EA for example bound my copy of Madden to my PS4 all I'd simply do is not buy any of the next iterations because lets be honest there are no great revolutions in games like Fifa or Madden and where on the PS3 I've bought Madden 12 and then traded it in to get Madden 13 you know what I'm gonna do if EA or anyone else did DRM I simply won't buy the next version and so its a lose lose situation.

Your also right regarding the EU they've already started clamping down on some of this:

MS might get away with this in the US but there'll get rinsed in the rest of the world so good luck with that MS.

@fermcr- it's not illegal at all. You own the disk and license to play the data(game) on it. Think about it, if you owed the actually data it would be legal to reproduce and sell or torrent as many as you like but it's not. It's clearly explained in the terms of conditions of every movie, game, CD etc. you buy. I'm not defend DRMs but I do understand them at least.

The Xbox ones 24 Hr. check in or die policy is stupid but then again no ones forcing me to buy it.
