What Announcements Should Sony Make Now?

Kotaku - After giving Microsoft a purple nurple for the ages just about 24 hours ago—attacking the idea that game consoles should have online check-in requirements and used game restrictions—what the hell could Sony do for an encore? We have a few ideas.

Yes. I'm hoping late September, early October. Gives them more time to build a crushing wave of momentum against that which shall not be named.

NewMonday1051d ago

you mean Sauron?

at least the console equivalent, even has the all watching eye and always listens for it's name.

Hoping they drop before xbone, just to rub salt into the wound,

hell at this point its beating a dead horse

on topic: i do selfishly release at the same time as x1 just so i can have a bunch of cash saved up by the time the one comes out.

Cam9771052d ago (Edited 1052d ago )

I was thinking napalm.

dedicatedtogamers1052d ago (Edited 1052d ago )

Release date would be nice. They said "Holiday 2013" and then later clarified "when we say Holiday we do not mean just before Christmas. The USA has a big holiday before that" (probably means Thanksgiving)

I'm thinking Sony will come out around the same time, either a few weeks before or a few weeks after. It honestly doesn't matter. Every Xbox One that sells is an opportunity for an Average Joe to get pissed off at the thing, return it, and then spread the news to his buddies that Xbox One stinks.

Sony needs to talk more about the Vita. It was neglected at E3 this year, sadly.

TheTwelve1052d ago

Good. The PS4 needs to come out by November.

LightofDarkness1052d ago (Edited 1052d ago )

If I were a betting man, I'd say November 5th US release date, with launch in major EU territories between 15th-29th November (UK/Eire earliest EU launches). Japanese launch may come January or February 2014, depending on stock levels across US/EU.

Sony neglected the PS Vita at E3 last year too but made a strong comeback at Gamescom. I hope the same will happen this year.

Looking at releases, I don't think they launch in September due to GTAV and early October would mess with Beyond.

The best day looks like it would be October 29th. It would release alongside Battlefield 4 and Assassins Creed 4. Be the first to play next gen versions of those games, seems like a good move.

@dedicatedtogamers: Retailers consider the holiday season to start October 1st.

Brilliant idea!
Do you know if you can communicate that to Sony?

They'll drop some exclusive bombs at Gamescom and TGS for sure. They only showed 5 out of 20 (or was it 30, think it was 30) 1st party exclusives in development. And 12 are new IPs if I recall.

OlgerO1052d ago (Edited 1052d ago )

Yes man I know and did you know that the Order 1886 is not even a first party studio :)
PS4 momentum is only going to get bigger.

remanutd551052d ago

The Order 1886 is being developed by ReadyAtDawn( second party studio i think) with the help of sony Santa Monica ( first party studio) i hope you know sony santa monica helps other studios with their games.

minimur121052d ago

the unnnanounced ps4 games i most want to hear about are:
Naughty Dog's game
Quatintic Dream 's game

Done.

Cam9771052d ago

Quantic Dream are doing the Dark Sorcerer or whatever it was called.
I think. Maybe I've mixed that up.

minimur121052d ago

@cam977

Nop, david cage confirmed yesterday it was just a tech demo, like KARA and The Casting.
The Dark Sourcerer is a tech demo.

HammadTheBeast1052d ago

20 new first party games, and 40 third party games that are exclusive, or have additional content on PS4.

NobleRed1052d ago

I guess they will announce the date during the gamescom.

AznGaara1052d ago

and Last Guardian at TGS :) lol

MikeyDucati11052d ago

A commercial. The screen is black with a drone sound in crescendo. At it's height, stop it and cut to a scene of Nelson saying "Ah Ha!" pointing at the One. Then end it with grand horns and the sound of beating drums with, 'Sony Does Everything'. That would be hilarious.
