How the PS4 Could Win Next-Gen

Dealspwn writes: Last week, I looked at how Microsoft could come out on top in the next-gen console wars despite their initial self-inflicted setbacks. So it’s only fair that I give the same treatment to Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 4. Both consoles are going to release around the same period, just in time for the Christmas madness. We’ve not had consoles launch head-to-head for generations, which means we’re going to see a real fight between the two. Ring that bell Mr. Shopkeeper. It’s so on. (Culture, Gaikai, Industry, PS4)

75% of the Internet =/= 75% of the world. Especially since Sony fanboys love the Internet.

No one knows the future, but there are undeniable facts that do paint Sony's situation in a pretty good light.

PS4 is $100 cheaper, yet more powerful. People say cost doesn't matter. People say power doesn't matter. Setting aside the fact that people made these same excuses for the PS3, but to a lot of people, those things do matter. Why else did the 360 become the go-to spot for most multiplat games? Surely the better graphics and smoother framerates had noooooothing to do with it, right?

While I agree that PS4 is currently in a very good light and I will get one, I hope it doesn't do as you fanboys expect. You guys need a slap in the face.

Seriously announcing a winner when the consoles haven't even released yet. PS3 is best example of a console that had a very bad start and it took years for Sony to catch up. And now you guys announce a winner based on a damn poll? Get real.

PS4 is the favorite to win next gen, but it's to early to tell. The PS3 was also favorite to win this past gen and the Wii won.

I personally don't think Sony need any advice, they're doing pretty well without it.

PS4 has already won, the so called experts and cpu techs can hype up the Xbox1 until their run out of breath but it still wont matter......PS4 has the advantage in price point, more powerful hardware, no restrictions, more exclusives and more developers making games for the PS4.

If that isn't a knockout blow to the Xbox1 i don't know what is, the consoles haven't even launched yet and the pre-orders between both consoles is 4 to 1 in the PS4's favor.

In the end we all know its the games and game variety that will decide the console winner of this next gen, but we all know who's leading that area too...and its not the Xbox1.

護廷十三隊十一番隊隊長,第十一代劍八。面目兇惡,左臉有道傷 疤,其隊長羽織的下擺邊緣呈現鋸齒狀。由於無法感應靈力,於是將長 髮弄成一小束束,每束都帶有能感應靈力的小鈴(少年時期則是留著短 髮的模樣)。右眼的眼罩是開發局開發出來的物品,令他可以將靈壓降 至與對手相當,以慢慢享受戰鬥的樂趣,這個眼罩會一直壓制消耗劍八 的靈壓,當劍八把眼罩拿下的時候,靈壓在十三位隊長中是數一數二的 。PS4 .

"PS4 has the advantage in price point"
If you're going by that, then the Xbox 360 had the price point advantage last gen, look who was had the higher sales last time around.
Akuma2K  +   381d ago
What does the Xbox360 has to do with the PS4 vs Xbox1 discussion ?? The Xbox360 had more sales last gen vs PS3 because of the year headstart and the higher price of the PS3, yet it caught up and surpassed the Xbox360 because of the games.

If your suggesting that the Xbox1 will do the same vs the PS4 don't hold your breath, even with MS removing the restrictions they still has a mountain to climb with it being the higher priced console and we all know price point is the major factor when it comes to xmas shopping.
famoussasjohn  +   380d ago
Akuma2K - Historically speaking. If you were going by things such as pricing, then the Xbox 360 vs PS3 sales figures can be brought up considering who came out on top in sales figures.

I'm just going off your bullshit points.

Yeah I'm so over this site man. It's a misinformation retard fest on this site.
monkey48  +   381d ago
Sony has the potential to win this upcoming generation. I agree with the points in this article like the fact that PS4 is easier to develop for, (even more so than the xbox one; something to do with the esRAM being a little difficult). Games will look better, games will be more immersive, and games will have better quality. At the end of the day, the games is what that matters.
EXVirtual  +   381d ago
Can you believe ppl have been saying the xbone runs multiplats better?? They're judging things off incomplete dev kits at E3 from Sony at least. MS was uses high end PC's. Xbox fanboys are in some serious denial.

no one knows the next gen outcome,but sony is definitely holding all the best cards to win...

it's hilarious how sony has systematically brought down and destroyed goliath..

sony made a better console this gen with better games,better in house developers,more awards,better ratings on metecritic(that microsoft used to use)...they have just dominated the supposedly bigger company with all that money that doesn't go into xbox games and systems..

now sony has made an even better system for gamers,has a better online pay strucuture that gives back to gamers with free games and discounts,will have a better cloud service(it will happen)...

i tell you,it looked grim back in 2006 with 360 gamers running rampant on this site,but sony is definitely having the last laugh...and so am i....

Sony has already won is crazy talk. I look at the facts and they don't add up. Put aside Sony financial trouble, they have no money. The exclusives will win out in the long run. Microsoft spending a billion dollars toward exclusive games. Nintendo has a three game exclusive with Sega with Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2. Sony announced one or two exclusive games that I can think of and will fall behind in the long run. Amazon and Gamestop are still taking preorders shows there isn't a strong enough demand for the PS4. And I don't want to hear that stupid s#?t Sony made more. Fanboys getting together online doesn't make the Playstation 4 a winner. Lol
dcortz2027  +   381d ago
A fanboy calling others fanboys, funny. Do you even read the article beforehand before commenting? It says how Sony COULD win next-gen.
PigPen  +   381d ago
Did you read the very first comment and others before commenting. Sony does have the worst fanboys out of all. It's funny cause it's like they're desperate for Sony survival. They look back at the Vita then go crazy, lol. Looking at Amazon and Gamestop, Sony just don't have the strong enough demand to sell out preorders.
Jihaad_cpt  +   381d ago
dude Microsoft is not spending billions of dollars toward exclusives. If they are that seems quite silly rather millions.

I'll tell you how... Just let them release it. Done.
Killzoner99  +   379d ago
This makes me so happy. Sony owns the industry right now. After The Last of Us , how can they not? I can only imagine how amazing the games will be. One things for sure, Micro$oft is completely screwed now lol.
Long Live Play
