Sony gets its video game mojo working

"Sony has a lot of energy, and they are riding a wave that they haven't ridden in many years," (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Everyone likes a comeback story. Sony will be back on top this generation.
xHeavYx  +   715d ago
I think Sony has had momentum for a while now, selling more than the 360 in the US was just the cherry on top of the cake

The Greatness of PS4 Awaits.

We ain't seen nothing yet.

It will be a major shake up and industrial revolution when the Play Saviour 4 arrives.

The PS3 is just 15 million shy of surpassing the Wii and when that happens the PS3 will be the undisputed king of this generation in terms of quality & quantity.

Couple that with PS Vita TV how the competition can cope with that is beyond me.

Just like everyone likes an underdog story. sony was once the underdog and really turned heads. I wouldnt say they are the underdog again but they are poised for a comeback.

Every company needs at least one comeback in their scrap book.

@ZH90....the way things are going atm it looks like Greatness will have to wait for its turn.

Sony - Wii is on top worldwide thought for HD consoles.

It just took awhile after flooding the market with stupid quotes for ps3
isa_scout  +   715d ago
The Wii isn't an HD console.
BlackTar187  +   714d ago
Sony -Wii Minus Wii not sony thru Wii.

When did Sony fall? Xbox 360 only sold more units because it had a HIGH failure rate!! Meaning that when one broke another was bought n so on n so on.... It's sad that critical analysis is a dieing art in the land of America.. I fear for generations to come if they follow suit....

-Losing well over $8 billion on the ps3, more than their ps1/2 profits combined.
-Losing $2 billion plus on the Vita
-Getting destroyed by Samsung and LG in consumer electronics,
-Apple destroyed them with the iPod and iPhone

Sony's market cap value 1/10 of what it was 10 years. They have crippling debt running over 90% and are liquidating assets left and right just to keep the lights on.

Yea they are looking pretty good.. beating MS in US preorder numbers in insane I see sony selling about 2 million more units then MS by december 31st this year

MS is doing ok tho..numbers are still good
PlayStation_4  +   715d ago
especially when you consider the fact that the PS4 is insanely hard to pre-order now & get it before christmas

They are doing great for sure. Also, they've been handed some serious gifts with Microsoft's many and continuing fumbles with their messaging.

I just don't like the games on ps4. They dont excite me. The only exclusive I find interesting is The Order 1886. Eventually I will get a ps4 but only when its been out awhile & the pickings aren't so slim for games. In the mean time I will enjoy the X1.
ABeastNamedTariq  +   715d ago

Enjoy! Next gen is almost here!
sobekflakmonkey  +   715d ago
if that's your cup of tea, that's cool, I gave you an agree, I'm all for PS4 and PC, but still, if the games are not in your taste, then roll with the X1, sa'll good bro.
QuickdrawMcgraw  +   715d ago
I find myself doing the opposite of obelix01.PS4 first as I know by past practice Sony will serve up exclusives for the PS4 through out it's life cycle.And eventually getting a Xbox1 once of have seen at least 4 or 5 yrs of support.
GBELKIN1  +   715d ago
I think you need to see Killzone Shadowfall in action. This is the best looking next gen game on the PS4. Knack which is also an exclusive looks decent but it doesn't look like a next gen game. There is a 20 minute video on N4G in 1080p which looks great & the game went gold today which means there will be no delay.

Don't judge a system by it launch games but on it's pedigree. I don't plan on having the system for only
"the first few months".

Sony desperately need this to turn their company around. Samsung is absolutely destroying them out there so a win on any front is much needed for the brand.
CGI-Quality  +   715d ago
Samsung has nothing to do with this VIDEO GAME situation. Thus, pointless post is pointless.
Wanderlei777  +   714d ago
When Samsung and LG send Sony as a whole bankrupt there wont be a games division.
CGI-Quality  +   714d ago
@ Wander: Yeah, let me know when that's even close to happening and your silly comment might hold a little bit of something.
PlayStation_4  +   715d ago
fail troll is fail.

Sony have already turned around their smartphone business though, they're projected to sell 55 million units next year!
prettyboy12  +   715d ago
dont really see what samsung has to do with anything but im sure will be fine
WeAreLegion  +   715d ago
Sony is on their tail in the mobile phone and television department. Kaz is doing a great job with Sony.
Maxor  +   715d ago
Sony mobile division actually made profit last year thanks to the new Xperia line. But that's hardly good news considering the millions they lost last year.

In the grand scheme of things both Sony and MS are hurting bad.
Clarence  +   715d ago
What? How about Sony is killing samsung in the gaming and movie business. Samsung really better step up their game.
Omegasyde  +   715d ago

But their movie studios (Culumbia Pictures, screen gems, etc) made profit. So much that, they are reviving Tri-star.

Let alone Sony made one of the best TV series ever called Breaking Bad.

Let's not forget Sony has a record label too with some of the biggest names:

You are just looking at one piece of the pie.
Hicken  +   714d ago
Sony's not in "desperate" need of anything.

And, really, what does Samsung have to do with video games?
TechMech2  +   715d ago
I'm more of an Xbox guy, but I enjoy my ps3 at times. For me it was the poor playstation network multiplayer that makes me lean towards Xbox one.
scott182  +   715d ago
I agree the network could be better, many games I have played had buggy multiplayer, like uncharted 2 and 3. I'm not sure if that's due to the network or what, but it was annoying (even though uncharted games are some of my favorite for multiplayer) plus the download times sucked horribly.

Sony is adding a new worldwide dedicated server structure with Openstack, that should solve many issues with speed and dedicated servers for games.

I sure hope playstation network gets better with ps4. I'm trying to play Killzone 3 because I bought it two days ago and haven't played it yet, but I gotta update my ps3... If psn improves much and doesn't have as many updates I'll seriously consider buying a ps4 before Xbox one
Magnus  +   715d ago
The PS4 is a great addition to the Playstation family. My Playstation collection will look great with a PS4 added to it. Buying two PS4's one in the box for collecting and one to play.
TechMech2  +   715d ago
That's epic. I kind of wish ps4 didn't have the black matte finish. It looks too similar to the ps3's. Maybe it's different in person.
MAULxx  +   714d ago
Sony has had "the Mojo" going on with me since Feb.
I wonder if I can stack my PS3 super-slim on top of the PS4.
I have a space in my stand just for PS4 but if I ever needed the room it would be a nice option to have.
