Sony – Why We Are All In-Favor of Your Console

It isn’t just the fact that they appealed to Gamers at E3. It’s the fact that they where the under-dogs for the longest time. Certain mistakes with the PlayStation 3 gave the Xbox 360 an upper-hand last gen but Sony held it through. They continued to provide and waited. They wanted to come back strong. So obviously they held some things out at the Reveal, while Microsoft did not. (E3, Microsoft, PS3, PS4, Sony, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Cause it's Sony.

They can release a turd and and the fanboys will still praise it and troll the internet.

And M$ can sell an inferior console for an extra $100, force kinect on you and almost force DRM (that they had to reverse because no one was getting their machine) and still 2 bubble fanboys praise the Xbox One

Actually, I had it for 5 years and it hasn't failed once. This isn't 2007 anymore guy.

@Heavy

Inferior as in more exclusives and a powerful cloud system with 300k servers? And a "forced" Kinect as if it's going to force you to jump around and wave your arms at your TV and no good use of games? Yea, don't be a hypocrite fanboy.

George, are you still buying into that cloud crap. It won't work as well as you think.

http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

As for Kinect, I hope that MS doesn't do what they did with the 360. They started to make mostly kinect games after a while. Hopefully they don't do that again.
Utalkin2me  +   695d ago | Well said
@georgeenoob

I know 5 years ago isn't 2007 it's 2008. In which MS was still was having high failure rates. So if the PS3 was a turd, what does that make the 360?

Launch of systems PS3/360

Ps3 blu ray/ 360 nope
Ps3 free online play/ 360 nope
Ps3 HDMI/ 360 nope
PS3 Wireless/ 360 nope
PS3 Any HDD upgrade/ 360 nope
PS3 Controllers rechargeable/ 360 nope
PS3 3%- failure rate/ 360 nope

Right?
S2Killinit  +   695d ago
@Georgeenoob
if that is true it is because Sony's reputation precedes them. They never let gamers down and that is not something you can say about Microsoft if you are honest and observant. They didn't stop catering to core gaming in favor of casuals/kinect/applications from the middle of the current generation, and they didn't try to slide anti-consumer policies past their fans. They also aren't pushing for a device that can permanently damage public privacy rights and set a precedent for other companies for years to come. So yeah, I think if Sony has fans that trust them, it is because they earned it. Take a second look at your own comment and honestly ask yourself, why?

Sorry, but the exclusives are better on PS4. Not only that M$ have fully revealed everything they had in store at E3 while Sony kept most of what it had back and still beated Microsoft.

Also, 300k servers isn't impressive. Sony will probably have something similar with Gakai.

"Inferior as in more exclusives"

Uh.. since when does 15 > 30?

You are high if you think Sony, with the largest network of development studios in the world, will let their competition have more exclusive games on their platform.

Georgenoob, PS4 have more exclusive. I think 20 trumps 15. Basic math. Best way to game this generation is to get both.

@Kingnichendrix,

'Our Worldwide Studios team has more than 30 PS4 exclusive titles in development, 20 of which will launch during the first year of PS4.'

http://blog.us.playstation....

This number may include the 2 multiplatform SOE titles DC Universe and PlanetSide 2 but otherwise the other 28 should be completely exclusive as they are only stating Sony Studios.

It also goes on to mention that of the 30, 12 are new IP's, which we already know about 5 of them.

The Order: 1886

All formats bubbles...you said it! I have always been a Sony fanboy. To me their system is just....better. Even when people bashed the ps3 in the beginning, I stood by it strong. Had one at launch just like the ps4 when I get one. I stand by what I believe in, and I believe in Sony.
RedHawkX  +   695d ago
that and because its the best why would someone not get the ps4 is the question.
CrimsonStar  +   694d ago
I agree Sony is all about the games , but as of right now im conflicted. the xbox has 2 games I really want and the Ps4 has o launch titles I want . I know the PS4 in the future will have more and my favorites such as GOW4 , Uncharted 4 , and a TLOU sequel . I don't want To buy a new console and only play multiplatforms for the first year or so .
MRMagoo123  +   694d ago
you havent even seen all the launch titles yet they still have more to announce a lot more if what they said was true, MS on the other hand blew their load like a pubescent 13 year old getting touched by a naked 18 year old
Mr_Nuts  +   695d ago
because they did something right, we praise people when they do something good

I know some people don't seem to think of it that way and think others hate on MS or Nintendo for the hell of it but out of the big three over the past couple of years Sony has been there for us the most. MS don't care about us and Nintendo don't know what they are doing most of the time

What else can you say really...

mitchell1188  +   695d ago
Enough for me to buy 2 actually. We're not all poor sir. And half the games I have were free from PS+. Just started buying Sony stuff about a yr ago but so far I'm satisfied. =]
Blankolf  +   695d ago
Lol let me guess, and you won't buy a PS4 because 32 gb VITA memory is pricey? O.o

Theire past is full of mistakes but they are taking the right approach, and others like Microsoft take the wrong one and follow right after, this shows the importance of competition, to all Xbox1 fanboys, imagine there wasn't no PS4 you would have DRM restricted console, you could barelly scratch your ass without asking for permission or see if it is allowed, well.. the camera is still built in with the whole PRISM thing not sure wether it is safe
iceman06  +   694d ago
How much were proprietary hard drives on 360? What about a network adapter? Oh...and that HD DVD thing, how'd that work out? HDMI wasn't necessary? I am NOT trying to be a d!ck but seriously!!! Each company has had it's "issues" with peripherals that were overpriced. Don't act like Sony is the only company that does this. Sony gives what it's fans want...Xbox provides for it's fans what they want (I assume since people still buy them)...and Nintendo the same...The End.

As fanboyish as that sounds I have to agree . After the TLOU and success with the uncharted series Naughty Dog plays a huge role in which console I want . God I only wish Uncharted 4 was launching for PS4 .

BattleAxe  +   695d ago
You would think that the second coming of Christ is upon us, this fawning over PS4 is ridiculous.

I love PS4 so much, that I can't wait to:

- pay for PS+
- pay a subscription to Gaikai to play games that I already paid for as digital downloads on the Playstation Store
- lose my privacy by having to use my real name on my PSN account

As PS1, PS2 and PS3 gamers, we had things good, but seeing all of this god-like praise for the PS4 has shown me just how dumb most people are....unbelievable. Microsoft is even worse, and its beyond me why anyone would want to do business with that company. They've got to be the most anti-consumer corporation in the world today.

If Nintendo ever goes down the same path as Sony and Microsoft, then consoles are done for. The trouble these days is that gamers who are teenagers or who are in their early 20's, grew up thinking that losing your privacy with things like facebook, myspace, youtube and now with consoles is totally cool and normal. 1984, here we come...
BitbyDeath  +   695d ago
'- pay for PS+'

PS+ isn't mandatory.

'- pay a subscription to Gaikai to play games that I already paid for as digital downloads on the Playstation Store'

1. No fee has been announced, PS+ may cover it.
2. It is an option, you want to play older games you can.

'- lose my privacy by having to use my real name on my PSN account'

That's only if you link Facebook to your account even then you could change your Facebook name to not be your real name.

why did you do this? nintendo fanboy who attacks both better consoles is not a smart move bro. looks like you need to play the videogame of life so you dont make this same mistake again.

with that said nintendo went the full retard route.
wii u
1. $350 dollars
2. no games
3 stupid controller gimick
4. same old mario and mini games
5. no account so that you can keep you downloaded games if your console is stolen
6. sucky online and no achievements
7. crap comunity as no one is buying a wii u so not many people to play with.
8. only a 32 gb hardrive lol thats pathetic
9. no dvd or blueray capabilities
10.no backwards compatibility for games i already own from past nintendo consoles.
11. no third party games like gta etc
i can go on and on how crappy the wiii u is but id rather not show how pathetic someone would be to act as if the wii u is the best.

do you want some more kid? are you not entertained? are you not entertained!!??

forza cant f with gt6 or drive club

titan fall is online only you are not gonna get a long worthwhile single player campain. why not play starhawk instead it has mechs that can fly and it has single player and build and battle and its on ps3 right now.

I like how xbox only owners now like the games they could and should be playing right now on the ps3 but instead arent and gonna spend 500 dollars to play the watered down xbox one wannabe versions.

Because Sony was simply the more honest - they were focused the PS4 is a gaming console *first - being less pricey compared to XBox ONE is a big factor.

Sony showed they had more integrity and were more open to the media and their fanbase.

Sephirothcv  +   694d ago
It's one thing to be a fanboy and another to be stupid im sorry lol. Really multiplat games arent fair to consoles to compare, both have some situations that are better than the other in their games. Developers did not care to take the time to learn the cell processor that the PS3 had and they voiced it load and clear, but when you look at exclusives its pretty simple to see which looked better in which turned out to be the PS3 over the 360. Not hard to figure out sorry.

PS4 is more friendly with the user( not DRM ), more powerfull ( 30% more than Xbone), more cheap (25%-100 bucks), the new controller is great and includes a touchpad and a rechargeable battery ( Xbone uses AAA batteries), a large and removable HHD, region Free, PS4 also can be played totally offline ( Xbone needs online activation and the DRM could come back), not TV focus, not kinect mandatory, the PS4 includes the headset, Share button....sorry for Xbox fans but Xbone is a product that causes scare....500 bucks to play dance games like kinect Star wars..
