PlayStation 4's Price and Policies Humiliate Microsoft's Xbox One at E3

Forbes writes:

For the past few years, people have accused E3 of becoming a rather dull affair. Companies show their games, fans support whoever they’re most loyal to, and journalists are forced to give press conferences silly report card grades. Rinse and repeat.

But not this year. In over a decade of watching E3 events, I’ve honestly never seen one company completely and utterly destroy a competitor like what happened last night between Sony and Microsoft MSFT -1.89%. It may sound like hyperbole, but what took place over the course of the day will send shockwaves through this entire next console generation.

sony didnt humiliate microsoft, they buried them at e3.

PraxxtorCruel1650d ago

I guess that means Sony is now free to do as they please. With Microsoft out of the competition who is there to stop them doing as they want in the future. How do we know a firmware update won't bring some anti-consumer policies in? You lot need Microsoft in the game to keep Sony in check.

And guess who's the #1 pre order on Amazon...yup, PS4! Lol!

Poor Microsoft, Sony kicks them to the ground and now Forbes is taking a whizz on it's greedy corpse.

Take your pick of sayings..

Well, if i can't play my games offline then there's no point. I really wanted to own both XB1 and PS4 but after the DRM polices that are being set in place for the XB1, i now have no intention of ever purchasing it.

The event will shape the first couple years for sure, but it will be developer support and product benefits that dictate the outcome.

Sony did a fantastic job at their event and touched upon selling points that resonate the most with the main stream gamers.

How will Microsoft answer?

mandf1650d ago

Right on. You definitely get it. It's all about the games.

xJumpManx1650d ago

Sony won but only because of price point and the used game/drm fiasco. The real question is will developers boycott sony since they took the stand that developers making money on used games is not right. Developers have to be upset at ps4 used game mentality.

theBAWSE1650d ago

Developers are going to cut off their nose to spite their face and dismiss tens of millions ps4 owners and in turn miss out on millions in profit?

Keep wishing and dreaming son...

Shane Kim1650d ago

Dude, developers won't go anywhere. The PS3/Xbox360 basically sold the same amount of consoles...the xbone and PS4 will probably do the same. You really think developers would miss out on 80 million potential consumers?

brianunfried1650d ago

How will developers making games exclusively for Xbox One avoid bankruptcy because it's selling poorly?

medman1650d ago

Developers cannot afford to "boycott" Sony, especially if the PS4 sells well. They would only be hurting themselves. The only "boycott" would be from developers like Respawn whom Microsoft buys out. Sony still has plenty of first party muscle of it's own waiting to crank out classics, much like The Last of Us and Beyond:Two Souls are looking to be.
