Sony Came to Play the Game

Francis "Xipher" Nunez Writes:

Today has been a very eventful day for gaming. As many of you out there in the interwebs may know this week witnessed the unveiling of Sony’s new next generation console, the Playstation 4 or PS4 as we all call it. Sony brought with it a slew of new franchises, new games in popular franchises, and introduced services to their consumers. PS4 let the X-Bone (X-Box One) know who’s boss. I’ll try to cover all the bases for the new console in this article for you! (E3, Next-Gen, PlayStation, PS4, Sony)

I love Sony; I have since the PS1 came out, and their games have always been the best to me. Of course this is a matter of personal opinion so please spare the nonsense.

They showed they actually do care about their customers opinions. Something other companies should definitely consider next time around (if they get a chance to).

I rarely give bubbles, but that is the most truthful thing i have read in weeks. Keep gaming. :)

Don't worry about it. It's called pride in your company. I have the same for Nintendo

As long as a person doesn't act like their console is perfect and can do no wrong I have no beef.

Sony made MS look arrogant and ignorant of gamers and the industry alike, the PS4 has most of what you could ask for in a $400 console

yeah it was good... I had prices in my head where I would go to each console.. Lets just say Sony hit it right on the head, and Xbox missed badly...

thing is people are on here talking about hyporcrites becasue sony fans were all jacked about the ps3 and all its options, and now they are "flipping around" about the bared down ps4 and how Xbone is a full media device.

But its not hypocrisy, it goes something like this for me. PS3 had a bluray which I already wanted, it had free online which i wanted, it was all bluetooth and backwards compatible, which I wanted. Due to this I was willing to pay a higher price, 649 to be exact.

XBone, I didn't want the kinect camera, which they make you get, didn't want to pay to play online - no choice, and didn't want DRM (although it's not as big for me with cable internet)... and its 549 (estimated cdn) plus online fees .. above where I was willing to go. Also voice features are useless I run a full surround system with logitech remote.

PS4 - doesn't come with the eye, which I dont ever want, has slightly better specs (may not matter much), still bluetooth everything, pay online, which I don't want, but is 449 (cdn) which is BELOW where I was willing to go... so the Plus subscription is a bit of subsidy there, ok, i get that and you get free games so that's a bit better too.

It's weird but it's like Sony stole all MS good ideas and ran with it... and MS is repeating PS3 launch mistakes...That's it, my decision is pretty much done.

It's sad that the issues Sony addressed even had to be. I can't believe MS is doing all of this DRM always online BS.
