Sony and the PlayStation 4 is off to a flying start, but that shouldn't be an excuse to sit back and relax. Keep asserting the PS4's greatness!
Finish the job...
Because of who does the XBox One not have DRM anymore? Or 24hr online check in? Or a Blu-ray player? Again, say thank you Sony. Why do people write stories just for hits? Whos' selling 4 > 1? Everything we are reading is Sony is pushing super hard to get games and content out as soon as possible. We seen Sony won E3, they won their first PS4 showing of the year. So they are looking stronger then ever.
We won't know who wins until the end. In saying this though Sony will be off to a flying start that's for sure.
Yeah, it's not over til it's over. But Sony's is a very good position, right now.
The problem is that Sony will keep pushing and Xbox will still sell fairly well, no matter how much crap they make gamers deal with. People are idiots.
Some people are too in love with their gamerscore to give it up. The achievement chasers seem to value their score more than their own families. Pretty pathetic. I have a 360 and a PS3, and I was sold on Sony and their first party developers years ago. They have games from developers I HAVE TO PLAY next gen. Microsoft, not so much. I'm a bit fatigued with Gears and Halo, and timed exclusivity for shooters does nothing for me, I'm over it. So the PS4 is my clear choice at launch, and I will probably purchase the Xbox One a few years into it's life cycle, maybe when they get more realistic and drop the price.
From here on out Sony is definitely in the driver's seat, all they have to do is keep bringing us the games we like to play and its all good.....as far as the article talking about how the Xbox none will be hard to beat in sales here in the united states, that's just a bunch of hype and the author needs to look at the pre-order number comparison..... 35,000+ PS4 6,000+ Xbox1 It's not even september/october yet, best believe those numbers will keep skyrocketing for the PS4.
Sony appears to have a slight edge in regards to positive press at the moment imo, with MS trying to recover lost ground due to the mixed messages given out and their recent reversal of DRM/always online policies. MS has said they are launching in 21 countries, does anyone know if Sony has said anything similar regarding where it will launch? Sony definitely wants to improve their market share in the USA and UK, though they will need to make sure they can retain their advantage in Japan, and in much of Europe.
Good advice. Sony just needs to stay on message of being THE gaming console for gamers. The same philosophy that makes PS+ such a great success.
Sony is doing a great job; from leaking in box content, talking about their decisions to make the console great, showing solid consumer and developer support and advertising your "future" months from console launch. The goal of any positive marketing campaign is to keep your brand relevant and Sony is doing that. I don't know about anybody else, but I think besides the Kevin Butler commercials. The "Greatness Awaits" commercial is the best one Sony has ever produced. Google Greatness Awaits and look at what pops up.
