Does Playstation still support exclusive games? I've hardly seen any so far.

Great news though.

Have to admit, I was shocked by Sony's conference up until the point used game support was announced.. now Sony just won E3. They dropped some huge bombs on Microsoft and kicked them in the nuts big time.

So long Microsoft, you're now dead to me.

PS+ for mp.. LOL.. is that all you Microtards got as a comeback? Try harder.

What now to those that claimed Sony will have some form or DRM? What now?
Sony listens to their consumer base.
ceedubya9  +   815d ago
Pyrrhus is right. The biggest news of the day isn't necessarily the games, but how the games are played. Sony has finally shown their stance, and took a shot at Microsoft in the process. Xbox had a good showing today, but their online policies will continue to overshadow any bonus points they got today with their games showing. They have to change their online policy while they still have time. They gave Sony a huge advantage.

@NeverEnding1989
did you missed the part where he said the President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios revealed that 30 PS4 games in development, 20 of which will be out within the first year, and 12 of which are a new IP?

so...those are games from their own studios which means...EXCLUSIVES!

Sorry but sony just ripped microsoft to shreds, they really need to remove that drm stuff if they want to stand a chance before the console is released.
I_am_Batman  +   815d ago
Fatality. Xbox is done seriously if PS4 gets a better price point it's over for MS unless they change their direction until launch which is highly doubtful.

If it is more profitable to publish games on the XboxOne and hardware sales between the two are similar, what is to prevent third parties from jumping to the new Xbox platform? Everyone claims it is all about the games, but not many support the people that make them and publish them. This could turn out to be a huge win for Microsoft if they sway any of the larger third parties to support them exclusively. Sony does not have the cash to roll out enough exclusives to keep the PS4 alive if this happens.
silvacrest  +   815d ago
wouldn't publishers jump to where the install base is? right now it looks like the PS4 will be that console
Death  +   815d ago
Right now is way too ear;y to tell. Typically, third parties follow the install base. Third parties also help build the install base. If I buy Madden for $60 and it can only be traded in at Gamestop once, what happens to the value compared to a copy on the PS4 that can be traded multiple times? If the publisher is paid twice for 1 copy and once for a copy sold multiple times used, where is the greater profit margin? Not only would the XboxOne version be more profitable compared to multiples on the PS4, but as gamers the value of your used game went up with it when it can only be resold once. Gamestop will no longer have so many copies of used games that they are only worth 50 cents when you trade them in.

This gamble Microsoft is taking may be huge. They are protecting the publishers/developers and at the same time increasing trade values for customers. Don't get me wrong, I'm not sure how much I appreciate the restrictions, but it's a ballsy move that is quite frankly without presedence. If it works, color me pretty damned impressed.

Karpetburnz  +   815d ago
If its true that you need PS+ to play online, while I'm not very happy about it, I'm still fully supporting PS4, why would PS gamers jump ship to Xbox when they're also charging for multiplayer.

In fact it's better on PS4 because if you dont pay, you will still have access to all your media apps unlinke Xbox which has apps like Facebook, netflix and youtube behind a pay wall.
Ben Dover  +   815d ago
Microsoft.. you have been owned.
kneon  +   815d ago
Sony could have skipped the games and just made these announcements and still would have come out on top.

All MS has to do is back down on the DRM. They probably will after that slap in the face, lol
Death  +   815d ago
Not that simple. It won't take many third parties to convince Sony to do the same. Follow the money. Publishers will go where the profit is. If they make considerably more on the XboxOne, Sony will either follow suit or fall to the side. DRM on PC's is already a reality, consoles will follow if the money dictates it.

are you sure even if we payed but EVEN LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL check again
Karpetburnz  +   815d ago
No because Xbox one will still lock every media app ( facebook, youtube, netflix etc..) behind the Xbox live pay wall, if you choose not to pay for PS+ you will still have access to every media app on PSN, that's the difference which was actually one of my biggest complaints about the Xbox 360.

Overall You still get more for free on PSN.
