Sony passively says that multi-platform games can be better on PS4

In response to the notion that Sony isn’t focusing on exclusives as much as Microsoft, PS4 lead architect Mark Cerny suggested that multi-platform games on the PS4 can have better graphics and responsiveness.

At 10 times more powerful then a PS3. I think that's a pretty safe bet, lol. Next Gen means moving forward. November 15th can't get here fast enough!

As far as exclusive, lets not forget Sony is supporting the PS3 with game like The Last of Us ( Naughty Dog ) and Grand Turismo 6 ( Polyphony Digital Inc ). Both Sony owned studios. So they where working on those games way before the PS4 was to come out. Yet both studios have already put statements out that they are working on PS4 titles now. You have The Order: 1886 with Producer's SCE Santa Monica Studio who are also owned by Sony. They just had God of War Ascension come out for the PS3 this year as well.

So where Sony's exclusive studios have been busy. Look at the 3rd party help that has stepped in.

Ubisoft has partnered with Sony and give the PS3 and PS4 exclusive game content for the PS3 and PS4.

Bungie has given exclusive content already to the PS4.

So there is plenty to do on the PS4 and we all can only play one game at a time. Games like the new Assassin's Creed 4 have over 100 hours of game play for example. Who the hell wants to rush that? That is one damn beautiful living gaming experience.

Just as everyone is getting settled with the launch titles. Then comes inFamous Second Son in Feb 2014. So it's once again kicking off with more AAA titles. Plus, as said many times. The PS4 is far easier to develop for and we see the list of developers working on it. So watch, 2014 is going to be a very good year for gamers!

that is true according to reports coming from GamesCom

people can deny all they want but after the consoles release their will be nowhere to hide.

MS fanboys like to act like ND, SSM, MM, and QD (among others) don't exist.

Yeah, they totally aren't developing PS4 games.

Because it's absolutely the launch exclusives that count, of course (even though PS4's are great too).

Longevity doesn't matter. They don't like surprises. They want everything out there now so they can "brag" now and regret it later when Sony's heavy hitters start shaking things up.

I hope "/s" isn't needed for this.

BF4, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed are all superior versions confirmed for PS4.
but i'm more waiting for first party exclusive awesomeness. it's the reasn why i bought a PS3 and Vita and i will buy PS4 and future Sony consoles.

I've been saying this for a while now, once the final form of these consoles are in our hands and even the hands of the games journalist and reviewers they'll be no way of hiding or denying anything.

All this "being played on a similarly spec' pc" bs will be over with. We'll see what the REAL systems can REALLY do. The speed of their OSs, the responsiveness and feel of the new controllers, the fluidity of the actual gameplay and the enjoyment.

First-hand perspective > all

These are reasons why I am getting PS4

1. Sony support more quality and quantity of exclusives than MS do
2. Multiplat games will look better on PS4 since PS4 is more powerful in terms of capabilities and specs than X1
3. Hardware 8GB with GDDR5, plus it's more developer friendly
4. Sony cares more about customer satisfaction than MS do
5. PS+ is better service than Xbox Live

the ps3 didn't do a very good job showing its power through multi-platform games. the ps3's success was due to exclusives, brand loyalty, making bluray arrfordable for videophiles, free online play, and having a great relationship with gamers.

the battle going forward won't really fall much on multi-plat games again either. not unless sony can pull a ps2 and go after 3rd party exclusives, which outside of japan developers is doubtful. it will be based more on price (which favors the ps4), exclusives (which going by history sony has a better track rating), relationship with gamers (which again sony has a better track record of) and services (which is where m$ leads, including online play).

whats exciting as a gamer is how fierce competition is. if the xbone starts to fall behind in sales i expect m$ to really become aggressive, which is a good thing. it will make them hungry like sony was after the ps3 came out and all the negative press it got.

The reviewers will finally report that the games don't look that different despite the "supposed" gap in performance. Just like how a 10x increase in performance from current generation to next, barely result in visual upgrades. With that gap even smaller between Xbox One and PS4, that will barely be visible if that. Diminishing returns!

However, people will start taking this console online and discover consistently better online experience due to dedicated servers on Xbox One over PS4 games that do't. Less rage.

They will start discover that, hey TV is pretty awesome when I wait for a matchmaking to occur and instantly switch.

Suddenly more features pop up with dynamically learning AI in the cloud, and now the cloud really rears it's beautiful head.

Point being, hardware specs next to features means almost nothing. Remember how the Wii outgunned everyone with features, not specs! Imagine when the specs are so much closer.

When the consoles are released, there is nothing to hide!

wishful thinking, most publishers will use their own dedicated servers on the XB1 and PS4, games like Destiny and BF4.

and with dedicated servers being an external service from the consoles they can be provided easily, in fact Sony are doing just that if you read the reports about this a few weeks ago, so it is a momentary advantage..

..unlike the permanent advantage of the hardware, the consistent PS4 showdown wins over the XBone will give it consistent free publicity.

I am buying a PS4 day 1 for the likes of Uncharted 4, GOW 5, GT7, TLOU2.

The launch lineup is ok, it will be in a couple of years that the PS4 will come into it's own.

That is the philosophy that Sony are pushing now.

abzdine1668d ago

Killzone Knack DriveClub will have me busy at least until inFamous comes out.
Dont forget Sony still heavily supporting PS3 and Beyond, GT6, LBP HUB and Ratchet are all coming out this year.
Tearaway, Killzone: Mercenaries on vita.

Sony is gun blazing at this holiday season.

Salooh1668d ago

14 is my lucky number :) .

USMC_POLICE1668d ago

I agree already paid for my ps4 but when gt 6 comes out Dec 6th I won't touch my ps4 for weeks lol. Its a good feeling knowing my ps3 will stand right next to the ps2 and remain there for as long as I live. I want my grandchildren to play the ps2/3.

OT: I was in the Marines for 8 years myself. Semper Fi.

I think where most of this debate goes is into tech specific talks, whereas I'm willing to say most gamers just don't have the knowledge to understand those dynamics. I'm sure most gamers will appreciate the graphical capabilities and extensive gameplay mechanics that can be pulled off with the tech of both systems, but I highly doubt that most gamers will look at both versions of games and from an eye test alone can spot the tech differences between the XO and PS4.

It's the fanboyism from both consoles that keep holding on to the tech to brag about, when most of us have a "cool story bro" look on our face as we anticipate just playing a cool new game on a better console than the current gen.

But maybe that's just me?

first of both ms and sony are saying this in their own sneaky way
ms is claiming with the cloud games will be bigger and more immersive and do things you cant do elsewere and the same with kinect 2.0,,, so they both spout crap, lets wait to see what true and what just flabbering

gaelic_laoch1668d ago (Edited 1668d ago )

The dogs in the streets and the cats in alleys know that multi-platform games can be better on PS4 the only one's that can't except it will be the Xbowners!
