Just saw this a few minutes ago. The guy can't help himself I guess. It's funny, seven years ago they (Sony) were in the same position. It's good to see that they've learned from their mistakes and developed a sense of humor as well. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go watch South Park for instructions on how to freeze myself until November 15th.

"Shuhei Yoshida trolls Microsoft on Twitter, shows that one number is indeed greater than another"

I don't get why the higher number trolling is so important. by that same logic apple's 5th addition to the Iphone is better than the playstation portable?

Does this mean that resident evil 6 is the best of the franchise? no.

does this mean that call of duty is better than all shooters out there because they're on the 8th? no.

so what does this logic apply too?

xxBiG_BoSSxx  +   830d ago

What? your comment makes no sense. none. zero.
I'm guessing it is because you didn't click the article link to twitter.

the numbers Shu refers to are actually quite significant. I'll never understand how some people can think they know everything about a story just by the headline.
TheHierarchy  +   830d ago
yeah, again it's just I've just been hearing that troll used a lot on this site.

....i can find at least 30 articles with people saying it. that's all i'm saying.

kalkano  +   830d ago | Well said

He's not saying Playstation 32 is greater than XBOX 13. He's saying launching in 32 countries is greater than launching in 13 countries.

^ Those kind of numbers are significant. That is a totally different kind of comparison than iterations of something.

I figured they're saving that date for TGS as well as some games, so far it's been a very western/european developers line-up announced for ps4.

At least... I'm hoping they have good news for the Japanese at TGS. 0_0
ShinMaster  +   830d ago
Technically, it's not trolling unless he deliberately posts it on the Xbox twitter page.

He wasn't talking to Microsoft or its fanbase. So some people bellow need to relax (@come_bom). Shuhei Yoshida is far from being a "jackass". Seriously, all he said was 32>13 and you guys are freaking out.
christian hour  +   830d ago
Who wants to predict when the first months data of each consoles units sold comes out, the go to excuse for xbone's low sales will be "Oh well they only launched in 13 countries, PS4 had 32 countries worth of sales to go off".

Although we'll have to wait until that time comes and then do the math to see if this is an actual valid excuse, and if it is then feel free to throw it around :P

'And in a dark board room in the deepest reaches of MS HQ, an executive is laughing maniacally; because in actuality this is the real reason they're launching in less than half the countries Sony is. So they can use this excuse themselves for the inevitable low sales to shareholders... "MWAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!", said the happy executive softly to himself... ...'

That last part is just a joke, please don't beat me up :(

What's the difference how many countries the system launches in?

If the system sells out in the regions launched in they will have a larger market share in that region seeing as they are not spread to thin.

It can be spun positively too.
SilentNegotiator  +   830d ago
Ps4 has more preorders, so it's very unlikely that Xbox One will outsell it in its measly 13 regions to PS4's 32.

So, no, there isn't any way to positively spin it with any sort of sound logic.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   830d ago
"Ps4 has more preorders"

Source? I don't believe either company has quoted a number. Sony said more than a million preorders but MS has not said a word. If you are going to go off 1 site like Amazon and not know stock allocations I can't see how that statement can be anywhere close to fact.

And that's amazon in the USA MS' best market. If Sony is beating them there, then surly there beating them in other regions, amazon uk also has PS4 ahead MS' second biggest market. So there losing in there 2 largest markets, that don't spell win to me.

What ever one has the most consoles available for purchase will win, at least in the short term
papashango  +   830d ago

IF both sell out in all the regions they are sold in, sony will have sold a hell of a lot more.
SilentNegotiator  +   829d ago

Game companies ALWAYS announce the million mark as soon as they reach it. You're kidding yourself if you think a corporation like Microsoft would withhold such an important benchmark.
sentury111  +   829d ago
You guys all missed the point of what I was saying.

I was just pointing out that if both MS and Sony had 4 million units to sell and MS sold those to 13 different regions while Sony sold to 32 then MS would have a larger market in those particular markets.

Of course Sony would have sold more in the markets where MS isn't selling though.

BTW: why can't I edit my posts sometimes?
KiLLUMiNATi_89  +   830d ago

If, if, if...people who complain about N4G being "N4Sony" always create stupid little "if" situations.

Look at the facts instead. Things are the way they are because of the actions that Sony and Microsoft have taken respectively. No fantasy "if" situation will change that.

strifeblade  +   830d ago
what a douchebag- i don't know why he trolls msoft after the 20 exclusives that ps3 has coming are mostly indies and most are timed exclusives LMFAO... its pathetic and msoft has more AAA titles coming in their first year.

The indie titles on ps4 make arcade titles like killer instinct and crimson dragon look AAA. But i don't hear msoft trolling- Really this guy has to keep it classy.

The sony gamescom was horrible in terms of ps4 and vita (save for the long needed vita price cut)... microsoft dropped a gamechanger and fifa included with every console. The best selling franchise in europe - Thats huge and in europe's eyes this just greatly increased the value of xbox one- so what buying ps4 and fifa saves you 40$ but guess what i get kinect- and with it features that will never be available on ps4- so for 40$ extra it's a damn good deal and it is the best thing msoft could've done- Actually i am pissed we don't get something like this in america but whatever.

Most importantly the fact that call of duty has dedicated servers on x1 and not ps4 is huge- this means you can play massive 50 -player online multiplayer without lag, without cheaters or lag switchers- and yes it is because of msoft's 11 billion dollar cloud infrastructure and this just made all the difference for those call of duty ps3 players.

MS gets the jabs because the company has been flipping on everything they came out with, its hard to follow a company with no clear vision.

And its not a jab if its factual, if you cant stand the facts, maybe MS should have been clear about the message about the xbox one this negative perception is all MS's doing, dont get mad its in the spotlight.

Someone go tell MS to worry about the next five or six years. Sony has plenty of studios that have, time and again, proven themselves with great games. MS has a bunch of rookie studios and DLC exclusives.
AngryEnglish  +   830d ago
As of May 2013 Sony as a company have a market value of $17.6 billion dollars... quite impressive

Microsoft have a market value of $234.8 billion dollars... around 14 times the value of Sony

Out of the two companies only one of those need to worry about the next 5-6 years... and thats Sony.

If the X1 fails to reach the goal set out do you really think MS will sit back and do nothing, you know as well as i do that MS can sell each console they make over the next 2 years at a loss, like they did with the 360, so before you start looking into the future please consider what each company can do and cant do, this isnt a jab at the PS4... just putting things into perspective
-Mika-  +   831d ago
lol exactly. If I wasn't such an loyal PS fan. I would have been getting the XB1. Their Launch lineup looks great and they have alot of interesting games lined up for 2014 that aren't unannouced.

The x1 launch lineup is way better than the ps4 and every1 knows this... I think every1 on this forums love drive club and f2p mmo's that are already on PC...

and @Ryu KZ:SF trumps everythign? what are u basing this off? graphcal power? or the previous games in the series which despite being beautiful to look at they didnt do anything spectacular or introduce anything new to the fps genre or narrative...

Kz is an average FPS with above average graphics... The overall experience offered will struggle to be on Par with other FPS on both consoles..

Whats wrong with their launch line up

You know people keep saying that along with that their gamescom was disappointing but really Sony are winning this without even mentioning what their top studios are working on. NaughtyDog, Sony Santa Monica, Guerrilla Games, Media Molecule etc. While Microsoft blew most of their top game reveals at E3, your not going to see more about Sunset Overdrive and Halo, hell even Quantum Break untill next E3.

They have their launch up, all their indie titles and once the PS4 comes out and we start enjoying those games deep down at least we'll know that there's still a lot more to come to keep on supporting them. It's a smart move in my opinion

To me if they announced what their other studios were working on it would be a waste in a business sense. They can keep these new games untill later on once we've finished or enjoyed what the start of the PS4 lineup has to offer.

Besides didn't people make fun of Sony years ago because it's lack of interest in Indie devs or the fact they had none. Now people are moaning about it, come on guys make up your mind.

I admire Sony that they give new devs a chance to prove themselves.

I was kind a bored first half of the presentation - but the truth is, Sony announced quite a few new titles for the PS4 after. It's only fair those got the prime time - we already know the block busters.

Shadow of the Beast seems to be quite alright. War Thunder looks good too.
Not sure what Helldivers will be,
or Rime, "Everybody's gone to the Rapture" is running CryEngine - at least this looks promising for the eyes - and Housemarque is always convincing: Resogun.

Those aren't even the indie titles, and yet we have 7 unannounced games in that list. Event those aren't all. I think the PS4 will do just fine.

I'm looking forward to what Santa Monica will come up with, or ND, or even Guerilla's second franchise. We don't need to have everything first day, don't we? Slow and steady is fine with me.
Heartnet  +   830d ago
but then there is no reason to buy day one console.. if all decent games have yet to be announced or are going to be relased 4-6 months down the line whats the point?

The majority of the indie games ps4 is getting are just ports or remakes.. which is what i think Sony is going to focus on as its cheap to make with large profit... Hell end of ps3 there was far to many ports and remakes...

And you say Ms blew most of there games at e3 but knowing a game in a proven series is in development gives incentive to buy that console.. if you liked the uncharted series and the halo series and you knew there was a halo game in the making but no the other you would buy the Confirmed game for that console...

Not telling what all ur Studios are up to is a major dissapointment as e3 / gamescom etc only come around once a year... and people arnt gonna spend £329 on a console on a hypothetical Uncharted game.. theyll spend the extra knowing a game they like is going to be released

Your username.


Microsoft will have a slow start, but they will start gaining momentum as the years go on. PS4 just seems to have the better lead right now, and Microsoft doesn't have a bunch of rookie studios, a good amount of talented ones in fact.


You never say anything positive about Sony, should have never posted. Then again, you are Mika after all.


I agree, Sony has a lot of launch games that appeal to many different types of gamers. In the end, both consoles have good launch games that will keep people busy until they release new games next year.

Someone remind MS fans about MS's console history. They seem to have short memories.

As I've said before, neither has a great exclusive in their launch lineup imo. If I had to pick one from each side it would be Ryse and Killzone, but I wouldn't buy either one of those games on launch day. No matter which console I bought I'd be getting BF4 and Watch Dogs.

But... buying a PS4 and PS+, I'll be playing those two games... and PS+ Drive Club... and DC Universe... and Warframe... and within a few months I'd be playing Planetside 2... and Warthunder... and Outlast... without buying another game, though by that time I'd probably buy Killzone anyway.

I don't see how anyone thinks MS's offering out of the gate tops that, but to each their own.

Lmao, um Titan Fall is PC... aaaaaaaaaaaand Xbox 360. Secondly PS4 has dedicated servers thanks to Gaikai's Network infrastructure being built into PSN for Both Vita and PS4. Something they went into detail at the PS4 reveal in feb. Again the xbox one is an over priced less powerful next gen machine compared to the ps4. Keep touting cross generation 360 games as exclusives that cant be done on the ps4 because of the magical cloud (which sony has as well).

The only reason Titan Fall isnt on the PS4 day and Date with PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox one is because of Money. Have a seat ---> _/

This is a better video than the stream we saw yesterday. For the slow people like you that couldn't tell what he was doing in the chair: This video shows how we will use the PS4. It shows the UI and how it works... It shows him jumping in and watching through his friends eyes then he chose to join the multiplayer game he was watching straight from the UI. This took 6 seconds and he was in game.

What about the launch party of the PS3 in France, with the massive canal boat that went by saying "XBOX LOVES YOU". Isn't that more of a childish thing to do then some small digs which are kind of true.

Lets be honest. If s/he ever played any Playstation for a long time. They wouldn't like Final Fantasy 13. Most Playstation gamers from "95-06" would at least know that game is terrible. The only people who became Final Fantasy fans because of Final Fantasy 13 didn't play Final Fantasy until 13. And that's one way you can detect, an Xbot.

But to say 13 was shaft cuz of the 360 wanted in is just sad. Overall the game took a different approach it was suppose to be an open world but it didn't work out for they wanted to achieve, yea sure f.f.13 shud have been a ps3 exclusive but like I said 360 wanted a second chance for us 360 gamers cuz we didn't like the fact that s.s. charged us a seperate fee to play their game.

Oh my God, that is such unbelievable BS. You had that all the time. I am actually glad PS3 is outselling 360 for that reason. Won't have to listen to Major Nelson's about every NPD chart ever released, even when they were second to the Wii. Add Steve Ballmer and Peter Moore to that list, and you had a self-indugent festival which has seen no equal.

This even went on with some of the developers. You'd have Microsoft and Turn 10 constantly taking hits at Gran Turismo, without Polyphony or Sony ever mentioning Forza.

Microsoft has been quiet recently because they've been forced on the defense.
At least Sony is doing this with some humor. Not just "We're gonna crush Sony etc, etc"

Yoshida needs to grow up? Remember Major Nelson bashing Sony on twitter about not showing the console? It´s pretty ironic, because Sony just showed the hardware at E3 while MS showed dat VCR at the initial reveal, yet the XB1 is launching in 13 countries while the PS4 is launching in 32.

The cloud is not a killer feature, because Sony owns a top company. They use the their servers in different ways per their needs.

PFFT  +   830d ago
Unpopular really?? Last i hear they have their own fair share of indie releases as well BUT the difference is that Ms doesnt just focus on indie games. They actually try to release full retail games at launch as well. And out of those titles only 2 are retail Launch, 2 are digital with one already available on Ps3. And the other two are slated for next year. OHH JOY!
rainslacker  +   830d ago
Dude, Indie devs haven't gotten mainstream attention until recently. I think it's high time that they get some major spotlight exposure. The fact that they need this to just disprove the "all indie games are crap" argument is just sad. AAA games get a lot of attention, and Sony has them in abundance from their own first party studios. You don't need a press conference to get the word out, because as soon as something is released, everyone watches the trailer. Have you ever noticed how little indie trailers are watched because of this pre-concieved notion that they are crap? The fact that everyone correlates indie devs with cheap phone games is just sickening.

I'm glad Sony is not neglecting a huge community of developers. If you were a developer, as I am, you would be glad for it too. And hell I'm glad despite the fact I'm not currently working on a commercial release game. These guys work hard, sometimes with very little. They have to rely on their creativity and talent, not a $50-100 million dollar advertising budget.

MS can wax on poetically about Minecraft for 10 minutes being exclusive to 360, but seriously, that's an insult to all the talented indie devs out there who have to fight tooth and nail just to get a moments notice from the jaded assholish cynics like yourself.

Can you seriously sit there and tell me that of all the indie games shown by Sony at both E3 and GameCon, that not a single one looked interesting enough to buy? If you say, "Yes, that's right", then all I can say is that you're a graphics whore, and there is no reason why anyone should take your opinion seriously on the measure of what makes a good game.

Could this be the next Twitter scandal? Is the community going to backlash against the comment and cause Yoshida's head to roll...or at least send him packing?

Err...probably not, because technically he is right on his math, so both in context and fact, he is not wrong.

He's just pandering to the fans. You would agree that it is the fans that would be following his tweets right?

On a side note...Kevin Butler often took jabs at the competitor in his commercials. He seems to be pretty well liked by most gamers regardless of console affiliation.

I think Sony has a lot to be proud of right now. They've been doing right by gamers and developers, so let them have a little fun since they provide us with so much more fun in the long run.

you do realize that DR3 will be about the same as 2 right? and that it gets boring after a couple of hours? Don't get me wrong the games are fun but they are not console moving AAA games.... I'm sorry I'm not super excited about every title on PS4 either but touting DR3 as a AAA game is just reaching.
DR2 sold 1.4 million copies. half of that was in the U.S. which means out of xbox launch countries, maybe 1 million..... this means every xboxone purchaser would have to buy it to make it a system seller, which in turn means most people are buying it because there are no good alternatives.
theEx1Le  +   830d ago
Hardly a reach. Because you don't see it as a system seller doesn't mean others agree with you. I know a few people who love playing DR games for hours at a time because they are just fun. Was that ever a thought that occurred to you that GusBricker just enjoys the game? Because I don't see half the crap you mentioned in your post as a relevant response to what he said.

im obviously talking about the elephant in the room, and that is that DR is not a wildly popular franchise... gusb can love it all he wants, doesn't matter to me, but I'm not going to discuss that, otherwise why would he even post it, noone cares about one persons preference.

You would have had a case that XB1 was a 'true next gen console' if MS had stuck to their original vision for it. But consumer sentiment proved that people don't care for 'next gen experiences.' If the cloud, and the dedicated servers, and the Kinect integration were so enticing and exciting for gamers, they would have pre-ordered the XB1 in droves after its reveal and after E3.

They didn't.

Sony learned the problems of attempting to 'lead' consumers where you want them to go when this current gen started. No matter how great Blu-Ray disc was, people weren't going to spend $600 on a game console just to be able to play those discs, even if standalone BD players were around $1,000 at the time.

MS learned the same lesson. That's why they removed all the policies that were seen as turn-offs to early adoption of the console on a mass scale. Fortunately for MS, the lesson came before launch.

I think the DRM thing is funny, their is a company that actually implemented a malware type DRM on music CD's that took information from people's pc's and gave that information to to the music company. That company was Sony. Sony is the company that has a much worse case of implementing DRM that harms customers, this included rootkits on Sony label CD's that acted as malware without the knowledge of their customers if you so much as placed the CD into your computer. This actually happened and Sony never bothered to tell people before hand. People always give Sony a pass or forget about their previous sins. They have done alot worse things that are anti consumer that actually made it out the door and effected customer compared to Xbox One polices that MS actually told us about and then later reversed cause people did not like it.

Of course they gonna throw jabs here and there its to please their respective fan base ain't nothing wrong with that.
Hell even the xbox/ps2 rivalry was good when splinter cell first came out on OGXBOX with the igloo ad... so send the shots
