To that adam clown guy its $50 a year not $60 get your info right.*facepalm*

moosehound1379d ago

Yeah that was the GBP to USD rough guess ;) He guessed at £40 being $60 ;)

It's game over for Microsoft. There is no overhyping. It's a fact. Microsoft destroyed themselves.

Tactically it was near flawless.

They started out with - Hey guys, check out vita, we're still supporting it and here is why it's great.

Then quickly on to a short bit about TV and apps.Just enough to drive home the message that hey, we can do it all too - and better.

Show the consoles, looks sleek.

Parade of indies on stage.Even some small, two man teams that would never in their dreams thought they'd get a chance to be on stage for one of the big three got up there, and showed their games to millions.You just have to look at the indie scene the last few days to see that that move resonated loudly.

Games games games

Address the massive elephant in the room about DRM - with chants and standing ovations

$399 price point

Bungie of all people, on stage, showing their new game.Just perfect.A lot of xbox fans love bungie like PS fans love naughty dog.To see them up there might be enough to take a good hard second look at playstation.

The only thing that made no sense was the 2k basketball bit.I mean really, what the hell was that about?

Anyways, looking forward to TGS and gamescom.So many games yet to be revealed!

Supporting Sony but being subjective isn't allowed, gotcha.

Mikelarry1379d ago (Edited 1379d ago )

i am actually being honest but you seem to have some inside info about the going ons in ms about " killers games and price drops" what makes you think sony wont match them / surpass them. you know sony does not even need to do anything ms is doing all the leg work for sony.

Edit:your name means nothing to me,your post is what matters. you made a comment i wanted to you to back up your post, its called a discussion

edit 2: dont change your comment now, its a discussion you can be as subjective as you want. you just needed to back up your claims

edit 3: yeah and sony will match. i mean its a competition to get consumers if sony sees microsoft trying to win all the consumers back with great games and price drops do you really think sony will tie thier hands and let microsoft win, hell nooooo

Ipunchbabiesforfun1379d ago (Edited 1379d ago )

Huh? Did you even read my name? I was the 1st comment on the PS4 price drop story and had over 300 agrees saying it was game over. The PS4 is in a great place and Sony just needs to maintain status quo to be #1 for the next 10 years. I'm not buying an Xbox one, I pre-ordered a PS4 a minute after it was announced.

I'm just not foolish enough to underestimate the foolishness of consumers in America. They'll buy anything, unfortunately lots of stupid people live here.

Ipunchbabiesforfun1379d ago (Edited 1379d ago )

Back up what? lol I didn't claim anything, I was talking in generalities. All I said was Sony has a good head start but Microsoft isn't DOA and needs some killer games and a price drop. Because they haven't made any new friends or kept pre-existing ones and America is stupid. I'm not really sure what you want to "discuss?"

It's called being subjective.
