Sony Has Outwitted Microsoft at Every Opportunity with PS4

Push Square: "Let’s be honest, today’s PlayStation press conference wasn’t the best that Sony’s ever put together. The pacing was lethargic after Microsoft’s high-octane offering of trailers and live gameplay demonstrations, and it all took a while to hit top gear. The platform holder fell headfirst into the trap that we’d forewarned, spending far too much time talking, and not enough showing. It was even subjected to a hardware fault on a far greater scale than DICE’s Battlefield 4 blunder, when Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag actually crashed during a cut-scene. But while there were plenty of negatives, the Japanese giant can still sleep tonight satisfied with its performance, as it somehow managed to completely get the best of its closest competitor yet again."

Sony played a mean hand of poker.And it looks like MS just ran out of chips!

Relientk771057d ago

I mean a 2 and a 4 won't get you very far when you gotta constantly check-in

Enemy1057d ago

Let's run down the list together.

No DRM (unlike Xbox One)
No mandatory online (unlike Xbox Live)
$100 cheaper than Xbox One
Indie developers allowed to self-publish their games on PSN (unlike Xbox Live)
8GB GDDR5 RAM
Standard 500GB hard drive (no hard drives for Xbox One)
Already two new IPs (The Order, The Dark Sorcerer) completely owned by Sony (in addition to InFamous: Second Son, Killzone: SF, Drive Club, and Knack)
A ridiculous, ridiculous amount of indie games for PSN

It wasn't just a win. It was a murder.

@enemy more sony fan boy rubbish. The xbox one has a 500gb hdd the same as the ps4.

Conference was better as far as games go, sony made uo for their poor showing with the price and their policies for used games etc.

Hydrolex1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

Sony just killed MICROSOFT ! Microsoft is probably crying right now

+ PS4 has better hardware
+ PS4 NO DRM
+ PS4 No forcing to be online 24/7
+++++ $100 CHEAPER !!!!

That's just homicide right there, RIP Microsoft

Hydrolex1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

I really suggest you guys to get your IQ levels checked if you decide to go with Microsoft Xbox One this holiday over PS4 !!! Please do

chazjamie1057d ago

Hydrolex1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

Microsoft Dictatorship is over !

Hydrolex1057d ago

You guys wanna hear a joke ?

PS4 is only 50 dollars more expensive than Wii u

HA HA HA HA HA !!! Very funny ! Even tho Wii u is 10 generations ahead lolz

MRMagoo1231057d ago

@falviousuk

I think he meant you cant swap harddrives on the xbone but you can on the ps4

NumOnePS3FanBoy1057d ago

I would have loved to have seen the almighty Kaz lift up the ps3 and mention all of what jack tretton said along with the price but I'm sure he was in his lair with that infectious grin that he has in the article image.

NumOnePS3FanBoy1057d ago

@Hydrolex Holy mother of gawwwd. I had no Idea geeezus nintendo have to lower their pricepoint now that's for damn sure. Sony's pricepoint is one hell of a bargain thats for sure

kparks1057d ago

Sony is playing with a full deck.
MS is looking to borrow a few cards but their policy won't allow that.

Relientk771057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

Yea but Microsoft can only borrow cards from someone who has been on your friends list for MORE than 30 days

tarbis1057d ago

How can they borrow any? From the day of the reveal to E3. It's not even 30 days. XD XD XD

Relientk771057d ago

Lol, what Microsoft didn't show at E3

Xbox One runs on Doritos chips

nthstew1057d ago

$399 no doubt PS4 for me ..

B-radical1057d ago

xbox did deliver on games games games and games like they said so kudos

sobekflakmonkey1057d ago

Agreed, I think MS killed it in that section, the only reason people are praising Sony right now is because of Used games, DRM, and that stuff just in general, nobody is really saying anything about how they didn't really show anything new, no new gameplay besides Destiny, games were freezing and stuttering with a low framerate, some of those games just looked like ps3 games, or games you could get on a tablet, Watch dogs looked like it was running in 720p with no AA what so ever, and Assassins Creed just stopped working (it didnt even look that good) the only really impressive game was Destiny and even that was freezing and having issues...

fooltheman1057d ago

Gameplay of first party games will be released today, like they said.
Microsoft showed alot of multiplatformgames, that are also coming to ps4.

Sony already showed exclusives in February, Microsoft didn't show alot of games three weeks ago.

jc485731057d ago

more like Microsoft is terrible at card games. I get the impression Microsoft never really quite understood gamers.

NextGen24Gamer1057d ago

+ xbox one has better software & cloud computing
+ PS4 NO DRM
+ Xbox one & PS4 plays used games
+ Ps4 is 39.99 cheaper (xbox one comes with a year of live) (ps4 with a year of psn is 459.99)
+ Xbox One has kinnect with every console
+ Xbox One has Snap mode, TV integration, and smart glass integration.
+ Xbox One has the most robust online infrastructure with xbox live over PSN.
+ Ps4 makes it easy to borrow games
+ Xbox one has the better 3rd party support & 1st party exclusives.

Easy choice for Real Gamers and new tech enthusiast!

That's just murder right there, RIP Microsoft

ThatCanadianGuy5141057d ago

You are clearly in a state of denial so i'll forgive you for that burst of insanity.

Hopefully you correct that misinformation by tomorrow tho.

Parapraxis1057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

"+ Ps4 is 39.99 cheaper"
See this is why people realize you are some sleazy lying bag of SH!T.
We all have the ability to watch the conferences, you can't just go and change FACTS.

Others will be added as seen fit, clearly after E3 2013 weeding out the plants has become far easier.

MRMagoo1231057d ago

The price was a huge freaking surprise!!
MS needs to get of the shitty mandatory kinects and cut the price or they are toasted for sure.

Muffins12231057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

They will probably have a deal like '"Pay $399 for the console then buy a 12 month year of xbox live gold and buy a game or you cant get the deal" Just so they can have the $399 price tag on it to look as nice as the ps4's price tag.I think sony made online you have to pay for it because their selling the console really cheap($399) and probably should of sold it for $450 but sense they did not they make up for it sense almost everyone who gets one buys ps plus with it for 50 bucks..

Jeff2571057d ago

Sony may come up with another sku with a bigger HDD, 1 year Plus subscription, maybe an additional controller, and/or a game with the price point of $499. Then still have the current sku at $399 and completely trump anything MS could possibly do to try and make the One look like something other than a complete piece of crap.

pimpschitz1057d ago

I bet it will be $399 as marked, and if they bundle it with a year of online I would pay it because it's still cheaper than XBO, and it is a better machine.

tehpees31057d ago

Not just cut the price but get rid of that DRM stuff. I can honestly see a re-release happening next year.

Xer0_SiN1057d ago

i agree. sony owned this year. on a side note, the order, the crew, destiny, shadowfall, elder scrolls online, versus (in no particular order) are all on my list.

Jeff2571057d ago

Kingdom Hearts 3 is the big one for me. With KH 1.5 coming out in the US this fall for PS3 I hope they have plans to do a HD release of KH 2 before 3 hits though. granted I want all of the others as well but KH 3 is just wow I didn't see that coming.

Xer0_SiN1057d ago

definately. i didnt catch that one cause i was streaming sonys confrence from m phone via blutooth audio to my car.p, just so happen i ran into a dead spot. so i didnt see that part LOL. kingdom hearts is a gamers delight! sony did very well this time around.

Jeff2571057d ago

I had the same thing happen to me. I missed the entire middle of the conference. i was streaming it on my phone while heading into work and it dropped out completely.

InMyOpinion1057d ago

I think it's more like Microsoft took every chance they could to do things wrong.

Jeff2571057d ago

Agreed. They are blinded by their own misguided ambitions and never saw the cliff ahead of them. They walked right over the edge and even on the way down still thought they were doing the right thing.

badz1491057d ago

lol just joking but agreed!

Geezus1057d ago

they just let ms self destruct then said we are the exact opposite of the xbox with all the hate ms was getting sony just came out shining especially with their pricing
