What did sony do at ps3 announcement??
piss people off and make it to expensive.

What does M$ do?
Piss people of and make it to expensive.

Sony came back becuz they learned.

M$ might not come back becuz it's not just cockiness it's a policy. DRM.

The whole used games thing and online thing seems to be something they wont go back on.

This makes me happy cuz I want them to die and kneel before sony and nintendo. :D

Sony probably won the next generation console "war" with the PS4... but both the X1 and WiiU will likely sell a lot of consoles.

- X1 will sell consoles in the USA and UK, in other markets not so much. Those are the markets Microsoft cares most, so they will probably be pleased with those sales.

- WiiU just needs a few games to start selling, and looks like the next year or so, it's getting those games.

- PS4 will most likely dominate world sales the next generation, probably sell more then the X1 and WiiU combined.

These are my predictions... without the help of Michael Pachter :)

I've been saying this all along on N4G.

In fact I said this a month ago in the article that stated how the Xbox One could outsell the PS4.

The bottomline is we are seeing this gen develop into a race where Sony and MS will both be successful.

But Sony at the end of the day has deeper markets in Europe and will always dominate Japan.

No sony have not already won the console war HOWEVER they are in the very best possibly possition to win it plus the fact many faithful xbox fans are now jumping ship proves this.

Once again its going to be another decade of great times for sony PS4 gamers

Too early to tell, but early indications are very good. I've never seen so many, "SOLD OUT" messages on various sites. It's a little crazy. I just got done dropping over $700 on pre orders for this thing. Something that I've never done in my 15+ years of gaming. My fear is that Sony can still mess up somehow like they always do like downgrade the system specs or something:P Im crossing my fingers this doesn't happen. MS must be having the worst time right now. Has anyone heard anything from them? They've been pretty quiet recently.

"My fear is that Sony can still mess up somehow like they always do like downgrade the system specs"

Sony have NEVER downgraded system specs.

SIX1203d ago

@davekaos That's not what I meant at all. I know Sony has never downgraded system specs. Very poorly worded by me. That was just and example of what I don't want them to do. If you remember in the original PS3 Sony did have some downgrades to the hardware. Less ports and such and that's not something I would want. They are selling us on a promise of this amazing machine. I just want them to live up to it. A big part of it for me im sure is that the PS4 sounds a little too good to be true. Perfect system at an even more perfect price.

@Davekaos
I'm guessing Six means the way Sony removed the rumble & then brought it back, & adding then removing backwards compatibility, stuff like that.
But not really specs.

davekaos1203d ago

My Bad @SIX

I should have taken into account usb ports etc...

This time around i cant see them making changes, PS4 only has 2 usb's from what i can gather and i cant see them lowering the "system" specs such as GPU etc...

I think Sony are onto a big winner this gen

there has been a gazillion of articles with exactly the same tittle this week... Can't these guys be a little bit more original?

Majin-vegeta1203d ago

There was a War??As soon as M$ revealed their crap back in May they killed themselves.Sony just dug their body out of their grave and killed them even harder.

*que How High scene where they dig Benjamin Franklinn body out of the ground and grind him in a blender* xD

Jeff2571203d ago

Microsoft came back as a zombie and Sony took a boomstick to them.

sandman2241203d ago

The only winner is the gamer, they get a next gen console later this year. I'm just thankful it's finally happening.

Foxhound9221203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

These articles are getting a little old. Anything can happen in the next 10 years, we can't pick a winner before they are out of the gate. One thing for certain is that Microsoft is going to have an uphill battle. Sony is on fire.
