Simply the most powerful console ever.

The_Infected963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

Nope just ask Albert Penello the Xbox One is more powerful. Haha

Edit: I'm being sarcastic obviously:)

lllll-lllll963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

@The_infected; difficult to agree or disagree with sarcasm mode set to on; lol :)

Jaqen_Hghar963d ago

well obviously. Because MS is the only one who customizes their consoles or has good software engineers.

NewMonday963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

love this guy, all the hard work he did is paying off for Sony AND gamers

Regis963d ago

Watch this after this humiliation Microsoft will release the new next gen console and make 5 times better then the PS4 or 5

JuniorCE963d ago

Do you believe in Santa too?

GamersRulz963d ago

I'm afraid this gen will be MS last, just like Sega.

both killed by Sony

Regis963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

Jeez guys I'm JOKING its hard to display sarcasm over the Internet.

@JuniorCE I did like to believe in sweet things,but thanks to my parents I can't have nice things.

Nekroo91963d ago

@GamerRulz youre afraid? im praying for this gen to be the MS last, so samsumg can buy it and actually make something good from xbox

Magicite963d ago

only 5? write 50, then we will believe.

miyamoto962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

Sony did not kill Sega.

In fact Sony and Sega of America already had a proposal for a 32 bit console turned down by Sega Japan even before Ken Kutaragi proposed to Nintendo.

Get your facts straight.

Sony was just an experienced consumer electronics master at that time.

Simply the BEST console ever.

With respect to the PS2.

dcj0524962d ago

I like the ps4 but it can't be the best until it at least comes out.

ZHZ90963d ago (Edited 963d ago )


Even MS admited it.

EDIT: PS4 will defintely be great as PS1/PS2 era and better than PS3 era by the well of God.

3-4-5963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

I can't wait to make the PS4 my First Sony console ever.

The thing is, when Cerny takes a "guess" at what we will need or we may want 5 years into the future, the result we get is the PS4.

When other companies do it, we get pay to play, microtransaction, filler, shovelware.

AceBlazer13962d ago

Godmars290963d ago

Likely off topic, but kind of odd if not another mark against MS that they have - had? - a spokesman who tried to defend his stance by saying he had nothing to do with designing the XB1, and here Sony has as their key spokesman the guy who designed the PS4. So he has no excuse in not knowing what he's talking about.

iamnsuperman963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

Well Microsoft do need a guy like this but it can also back fire if not done correctly. Microsoft (as a whole) has been trying to shake a nerdy image for some time (since the rise of Apple and their pretentiousness). I know it is bad to say this but having a geeky guy at the front can be quite damaging because it can make the device seem geeky and uncool. Saying that, Cerny has been doing very well to not portray that image (which is helped by other PR guys making the device seem cooler leaving him to just talk about the specs to those who care). If Microsoft were going to do it they need to be careful about how they do it (balance)

u got owned963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

I don't think MS will do it anyway. Its clearly Sony's marketing strategy is "we have the most powerful console". While MS strategy is "All in one". Anyway in the end PS4 is more powerful so i don't see the point of MS playing a game they know they'll loose.

thehitman963d ago

TBH w/ all the celebrities they hire 1 geeky guy wouldnt hurt them. But then again it would help if that "geeky" guy could actually boast and talk about their product in confidence and not hide the discrepancies in less power compared to the competition.

Godmars290963d ago

@u got owned:

At this point Sony's message is, "We're honest" or at least more foreword in what we say than the other guy.

WeAreLegion963d ago

I think the majority of people don't care if someone is "geeky" or "nerdy" anymore. We're more concerned with a spokesperson being real with us.

Just look at the current successful marketing campaigns. Cool can only get you so far. Respect is more powerful.

miyamoto962d ago

M$ can not afford idiots speaking anymore for them like Greenberg, Tsunoda, Molyneux, Hryb Major Nelson, and that anti-nuclear sub guy Mattrick.

And Sony only needs one honest to goodness genius man to speak.

Who was the lead architect on the Xbox One anyway? O.o

Tried googling it but it seems they never mention one.

Bathyj963d ago

That would be a good slogan.

Ps4. It has what I need.

Where's my meme generator?

Godmars290963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

PS4: Gives you what you need in what you want.

miyamoto962d ago

Play More and More
