Watch the Audience Go Crazy When PS4 #NoDRM, No Authentication is Announced

PSLS: I have watched every single E3 press conference since the show began, and not once have I heard a crowd roar and chant like this. This is easily the biggest reaction ever, during the biggest annual event in gaming. (E3, PS4)

I'd say it's the biggest reaction ever at E3.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   972d ago
Chants of "Sony! Sony! Sony!" Pretty much sums it up.

MS is going to have a hell of a time going head to head this go around.Launching Same time, PS4 being cheaper.GG Sony.

Thank you for staying true to the customers.

Edit: I would just like to point out to those who saying MS "Redeemed" themselves in other threads.No, they did not.
They did exactly what Gaf leaker Cboat said they would do.Not mention it AT ALL.Just try to sweep it under the rug and hope people forget.Why? Cboat says the DRM is much more restrictive then they've let on so far.I'd link the leak but Gaf is crumbling under this Megaton bitchslap sony just handed out.

^^ ye haha I started laughing at the chanting.

The ps3 outsold xbox 360 as of now and it launched a year later, was harder to develop for, was hundreds of $ more expensive and had barely no online.

Now they are launching around the same time:

-PS4 is more powerful (by quite a margin)
-Allows used games and is DRM FREE
-$100 cheaper
-Launching the same time frame
-Is really easy to develop for and port games to
-has the backing of loads of developers not to mention their own
-new and improved DS4 which puts it past XBOX1 controller

Lets see how they do head to head this time round :P

Yeah and they were so happy, Jack quickly slipped in the part about paying to play online and just breezed right by it.

But, looking at the value of PS+ it doesn't seem too bad, especially given the no DRM news. I've considered getting PS+ many times but never did. It might make me buy fewer games though, since they could become free eventually.

I would like to see the video for when the audience went crazy after the $399 announcement.
--Onilink--  +   972d ago
it was an awesome moment indeed, though just before that I was dying of boredom, the conference itself was pretty bad. Kinda like Ubisoft's. Though unlike Ubi who saved themselves with an amazing demo in the end, Sony did it by viciously beating MS with a stick until there was nothing, lol

edit: and destiny was not the big ending i was expecting. Looks like borderlands+halo, which is definitely not bad, but not very original.

Ill definitely give it to titanfall this time, which i guess ill be playing in my PC

What is this Mystic, your 4th or 5th Sony article about the possibility that non-Plus members may have a fee? You do not mention anything on topic but rather jump straight to the only negative you can find. Seems to me your motivations are fairly clear. All one need do is look at your post history and reasons are rapidly clarified.
MysticStrummer  +   972d ago
@morganfell - If you looked at my post history, you'd see I'm a Sony only gamer and have been since PS1. The announcement about paying to play online was simply the low point of the show for me. I'd still say Sony spanked MS hard.

Did you miss the second part of what I said above? About PS+ being such a value? It seems you did miss that.

Put away your Jump to Conclusions Mat. You'll hurt yourself. ; )

@Melon - I too buy the games I want at release, which is why I've never gotten PS+. Just looking at the math though, price vs what you get, it is a good value. Like I said above though, it may make me wait to see if a game will become free eventually before I buy it.

Ahhh who am I kidding, I'll still just buy the games I want right away. lol

The Great Melon  +   972d ago

I caught that also. I hope they come out later and say that that bullet point was addressing something along the lines of a "complete online experience" rather access to multiplayer. However, I am doubtful of that as they would have emphasized that in the conference as another strength. PS+ has never been such a great value for me because I tend to buy all my games in hard copy form, so free games never really had as much pull for me as others.

On the upside hopefully this means any multiplayer game ever released on Sony console will have online functionality forever whether on Gaikai or disc. I can dream...

did sony
officially refute their stance on "its up to the publishers" statement from before?

Meaning that it no longer up to the publishers because sony has killed the idea from all the pressure.

If they still say its up to the publishers then how is this a win? Publishers can still do these measures if they want.
MysticStrummer  +   972d ago
This is for you, morganfell, and it's the truth.

I've never smiled or laughed at an E3 press conference quite like I smiled and laughed at Sony jabbing MS about DRM. I actually said "Game over!".

The pay to play online thing was a bit of a downer, but overall Sony owned MS tonight.

I cringed when the TV talk started, but it was over quickly and they got back to games.

Nearly perfect, and miles better than what MS has to offer.

Especially the wrestling belt. That was absolutely hilarious.
Ps4!! and the price is right!!!

For Xbone the price is right is just a game show lol
MikeMyers  +   972d ago
That was the big announcement that will get the most talk. It was a great moment and I would live to have seen Don Mattrick and the boys of their faces. The crowd died down quickly when they announced online play now has to be Playstation Plus.
finbars75  +   972d ago
you dont need to pay online.It says for a better experience ps plus will be the way to go.They never once said you had to pay online.You need to stop jumping the gun on that crap.jack tretton will talk about this tomorrow and im sure it will clear the air on that one.I highly doubt they will charge to play online mark my words.
MysticStrummer  +   972d ago
I hope you're right finbars but I doubt it. Jack said it, and one of the videos they released had it in print on the screen. I'll try to find the link.

Just a screenshot, but...

Anyway I hope you're right and basic online play will still be free.

I bet Sony didn't have to pay for those cheers either.

Microsoft's cheerers on the other hand.. were going "Woo" when that Microsoft employee with the smug face was recalled back to the stage.. you can't get more obvious than that for paid cheers.
showtimefolks  +   972d ago
in 23 years of gaming i have never seen people chant a company's name at E3

this is how you stand up for gamers MS. Maybe this is why EA is in bed with MS since sony said no to them for this crap

now MS will advertise the heck out of xbox one so they can sell it to casuals who don't know better, but i wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people go to stores to buy xbox one will be told to buy ps4 instead

service like gamefly and redbox will reach out to their consumers for awareness, and it also helps that ps4 will be $100 cheaper

great job sony 11/10, showed games and discussed actual issues/concerns gamers had

watch the MS conference every one of their execs had that we are better than you look, bunch of morons

i still say phil harrison was sent to ms by sony to destroy the xbox brand and he has been quite successful lol

Maybe because it's 5am and I haven't gone to bed yet but I never even looked at it this way.. if Sony have made it far easier for retailers like Gamestop and GAME to deal with used PS4 games, they'd have a huge financial motivation to push the PS4 brand especially considering how used game sales makes up a large percentage of their profits. It will be interesting to see how this will effect the console war especially leading up to the winter period.

BladerunnerZX  +   972d ago
I have watched and read about E3 for years. Heck I still have some old DieHard Gamefan issues with E3 coverage.

I cannot remember any E3 announcement having a reaction like Sonys just did.

I am almost shocked at how Sony answered all of the questions that the gaming community and press had about restrictions and their policies for the PS4.

Other than paid online multiplayer (PSplus) Sony nailed it and gave Microsoft a hell of an uppercut and at the same moment gaining incredible support from both the gamers and the gaming community.

Bravo Sony Bravo.

Yeah I played a in a Killer Instict tournament back in 95 I think it was so I absolutely luv the Killer Instict games ( still have my old black KI SuperNES cart too) but I will have to miss out on Killer Instict Xbox One.

At least until Microsoft changes their DRM and 24hour check in policies.

One of the greatest moments in E3 history. Sony bravo for them for standing up for the consumers. They may have lost exclusive deals from 3rd party devs and yes we have to pay for online but if you stand up for my rights I'll gladly pay for PS+. It doesn't hurt that I get free games with it.

Sony E3 Thoughts;
The F****ng Insane: $399, €399 and £349! 12 new IPs for PS4 in year 1! 40 exclusive games for PS4 in year 1! PS+ content coming to PS4 day 1! Self-publishing on PS4! PS4 supports used games! No always online on PS4! No DRM on PS4! Square's Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XIV on PS4!

The Great: Mad Max The Game, The Dark Sorcerer, The Order 1886 and Watch_Dogs (exclusive content) on PS4. Gaikai Cloud Technology; all access gaming library, games available everywhere!

The Indie Support: The Witness, Transistor, Don't Starve, Mercenary Kings, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Secret Ponchos, Ray's Dead, Outlast, OddWorld Inhabitants, OddWorld New & Tasty and Galaxz.

The Good: Destiny (exclusive content) and The Elder Scrolls Online.

The Bad: Interesting system design but looks kind of crappy too (IMHO). PS+ needed for online play (sad but expected). The Walking Dead Vita bundle. Exclusive GTAV bundle & headset (overpriced)!

The Ugly: Assassin's Creed IV FAIL DEMO (exclusive content).

Not Interested: Sony Entertainment Program Network, Music & Video Unlimited Day 1, Redbox Instant (USA), Live Arena Sports and Flixster Movie App coming to PS4. Exclusive Diablo III content and NBA 2K14.

The Seen Before PS4: Games; Driveclub, Infamous Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack. Features; real world friends list, share button features including images, video, Ustream and game director mode + cross game chat.

The Seen Before PS3 Games; Batman Arkham Orgins, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, Puppeteer, Rain and The Last of Us + Killzone: Mercenaries and Tearaway for Vita.

Again pricing issues; cheaper than Xbox One but still Europe is getting sh***** on big time! US price in US$ 399. UK price in US$ 544 EU price in US$ 530! £349 = $544 on conversion! $399 = £256 on conversion! £256 + £51 VAT = £307... not £350!

This exclusive 3rd party games or exclusive 3rd party content is p****** me off now. Only 1st party should be exclusive!
RGB  +   972d ago
20 1st party games in year 1 too... better than that 15 with camera sports games! XD
