next gen may very well be the return of the ps1/ps2 era. everyday i hear about another dev favoring the ps4 over the xbone. M$ have an uphill battle ahead of them.

Isn't that what happened with Xbox 360 and PS3.

They both will be fine.

Yes, but PS3 dropped the ball hard early on, and payed for it by getting outsolf for 4-5 years. Now, they've recovered and beaten 360. As you say, both will be fine, I just like the competition.

that's true they both will be fine and I don't think PS4 will be as successful as PS2 but I think they are going to leave xbox one way behind. The negative backlash to xbox wasn't something that happened over night when Microsoft revealed a Gaming console without games. It was years in the making. Xbox core gamers (whether they admit or not, or even whether they know it or not) were a bit disappointed with xbox's core gaming support since the second half of the generation when MS pretty musch dwindled down support for gamers in favor of focusing on casuals and kinect. So these fans where eagerly waiting for Xbox to return to them with the next system and instead they got MS announcing a GAMING system bundled with kinect and ignoring anything to do with gaming plus restrictions. Microsoft miss calculated their fans disappointment and it bit them. So I think even though Xbox will be just fine, they have a difficult path ahead of them.

If Sony lock Japanese 3rd party exclusives (which I think they'll do later on), then yes, it is.

Both the PS3 and Xbox360 were PowerPC based with the PS3 being much more complex to program for. I can understand how a developer would choose one over the other this last gen. With the PS4 and XboxOne sharing the same basic architecture I'm surprised to see any third parties "choosing" a platform.

Glad to hear it, can't wait to see what they produce.

Only by a small margin and this was before the DRM reversal.

I think the biggest thing to look at here is the massive mobile development.

SymphonicRain1711d ago

You mean the DRM that would've helped them make more money? Remember that developers would be in favor of DRM. And there were still more on Sonys platform.
