Preview: Sony’s PlayStation 4 is very impressive | Canada

Sony Canada set up a PlayStation 4 and then attached it to a massive Sony television in a somewhat swanky downtown Toronto condo, for media to book hands-on time with the console. We spent four hours with the console. Here are our impressions.

Infamous SS says hi. Plus, we all know that whatever Naughty Dog reveals will cause people to buy the PS4 faster than they can make them.

"we all know that whatever Naughty Dog reveals will cause people to buy the PS4 faster than they can make them"

Well, I wouldn't agree with that. If we're going by the numbers, not even one TENTH of PS3 owners have bought an Uncharted game. Just because a game is good doesn't mean it will sell. Just like a game being subpar doesn't guarantee it will flop (Wii Fit, COD, Angry Birds etc.) There are other factors at play.

Anyways, my comment is likely irrelevant as your probably exaggerating to make the point that ND's next game will make TONS of people have to go to Kohl's to get a new pack of underwear lol.

black0o1383d ago

sonY sells the PlayStation brand no need for halo like game .. PS1 days we had some great series and nvr showed up since then so did the PS2 and probably the ps3 will

except for some Fr. like GT

GameNameFame1383d ago

So this really isnt an issue. Look at this gen. Best exclusives looking at metascore by faarr

LOGICWINS1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

"Sony always have better first party line up"

Subjective. Sony unquestionably has the stronger variety in exclusives, but "better" is a matter of opinion.

And Metacritic is for fanboys and parents/grandparents trying to figure out what gifts they'll give to the gamer in their life. I don't give it much thought personally.

@black0o- Totally agree. Sony has never relied on ONE franchise to sell their systems.

scott1821383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

Killzone SF is the top pre ordered exclusive, I would say people want it pretty bad.

Rimeskeem1383d ago

But that was when naughty dog wasnt as known and now they are being thought of as making the bar for this gen and next gen

Bathyj1383d ago

Youre right, "better" is just a matter of opinion. But its my opinion and when it comes to games thats the only one I care about.

And I'll just throw this out there, Sony supports their consoles with great games for longer through its lifecycle. Thats not opinion, thats documented, repeatedly proven fact.

LOGICWINS1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

@Scott- I agree..not sure how Shadowfall is relevant to my comment, but I agree.

@Bathyj- Agreed, thats a fact. Sony supports their consoles much longer than their competition. That can't be argued against.

@sckipt-

??????

Naughty Dog wasn't known before Uncharted, despite four Crash Bandicoot games and four Jak and Daxter games? Erm..sure. Whatever u say man.

scott1821383d ago

@LOGICWINS

I was piggybacking off your comment to be higher on the thread. I am such a cheater...

bleedsoe9mm1383d ago

it will be interesting to see if whatever naughty dog is making has gotten to the level of a system seller . in my opinion KZ or SS isn't at that level , probably the best system seller for the ps3 was mgs 4 .

cobblestone191383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

Come on now logic, metacritic is not for fanboys.
Besides, remember when the 360 had more high rated exclusives then the Ps3, Xbox fanboys would shout "The 360 has more high rated exclusives than the Ps3!"?
So it's all a matter of convince and opportunity.
Anyways, Killzone looks AMAZING, So do drive club and Second Son.

stragomccloud1383d ago

Wii fit isn't a game though. It's a fitness routine, and actually, I've heard it's a very effective fitness routine. But I digress, saying that Wii Fit isn't a good game is like saying that Microsoft Word isn't a good game. Just because something is software, doesn't mean it's a game.

abzdine1383d ago

resolution, price and performance are reasons enough to go for PS4 and are system sellers for many.
not to mention the 1st party games that always lead the way.

TheDivine1383d ago

Honestly I buy Ps consoles based off third party games mainly. Sony has a lot of first party games but few games I like. GOW was good, Uncharted was amazing, Resistance was alright, Demons Souls was amazing, KZ is alright, TLoU was good and not much else.

They do have great third party games which have always sold sony's systems.

On psx we had MGS, FF, and many other Square RPGs.

On Ps2 we had DMC, MGS, FF, GTA, and a billion others.

On ps3 we had MGS, Valkyria Chronicles, Demons Souls, Heavy Rain, Ni No Kuni and others.

Right now there's no system sellers until FF15 and MGS hit hopefully next year. Def nothing from Sony unless they announce Demons Souls 2 or a big Jrpg.

You have my Respect.

AliTheSnake11383d ago

Sales don't represent most users numbers. Half the people who played uncharted bought it used or borrowed it.

abzdine1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

what you seem to forget is that a game can be played on many machines which means people can lend games to each other, they can also buy the game used..
a big game is definitely a system seller, i can still buy a console just for that game just because i can borrow it from my friend or cousin when he's done with it.

much much more people than the tenth as you call it have played the game and have bought a console just to play that game.
Also, lots of quality games make people buy consoles-

to answer the article, there are games for every taste at launch. just see how many free games will be available day one, add to that the F2P games like Deep Down, Warframe and more...
All this while we haven't seen gameplay from The Order 1886, ND next game, MediaMolecule or Santa Monica.

Prime1571383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

"Well, I wouldn't agree with that. If we're going by the numbers, not even one TENTH of PS3 owners have bought an Uncharted game."

But they bought the GTA5 bundle which will get them into UC which is better than any other 360 exclusive... Oh, not to mention The Last of Us is the same dev....

LOGICFAILS when you're you.

mav8051382d ago

...and not even 1/6th of owners will buy a COD game, what's your point?

Sony exclusives are a big draw for a lot of people, just like MS exclusives are popular among other people.

Just because a game doesn't sell to a majority of owners doesn't mean it doesn't sell well or move units.

mewhy321382d ago

"Impressive" is a common word when talking about the PS4.

larrysdirtydrawss1382d ago

Killzone is more of a system seller than infamous ever was. Sucker punch have never managed to draw in huge numbers with the series. Perhaps they'll start now.

GribbleGrunger1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

This is the actual headline from the article:

"Preview: Sony’s PlayStation 4 is very impressive"

Sony can't keep up with pre-orders at the moment so how the hell can this reworded headline be relevant?

hiredhelp1383d ago

What a silly headline. Launch consoles not going to have 30 plus games on the ready as for games well you could say same for xbox... Both have different ip both have same ip's not a bad thing. System sellers are a 2 way thing for me its what you get with it and what system has..
Example system 1 , 399 core system. With 320gb hdd system 2, 450 with 320gb plus uncharted or same system with GT the choice would then be a opinion to that persons.

Now we know what sony are like we know how many "studios" sony has vs Microsoft i say doesn't matter just grab ps4 within first 6months more titles will emerge.

pat_11_51383d ago

Those won't be available at launch. That's the point I'm trying to make.

LOGICWINS1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

Yeah, your totally right. But this isn't unusual. Its seldom that a system launches with a true system seller. Halo 3 and MGS4 weren't available at the launch of their respective consoles. The issue your referring to isnt a PS4 only issue.

Evidently the PS4 doesnt need a system seller at the moment with well over

....

ONE MILLION pre-orders *puts pinky in mouth*

I'd rather these devs take their time to craft these games instead of rushing them out for launch.

garos821383d ago

And that is exactly what is happening with drive club and watch dogs.they not rushing to hit launch

GarrusVakarian1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

Then the title should make it clear that you mean launch games :)

CYCLEGAMER1383d ago (Edited 1383d ago )

This is the main reason why I think I am going to wait on getting a ps4. I have it pre ordered..since its in high demand, I wonder if I could make a profit....hmmmmm -_-

staticdash221383d ago

Look at his Avi people, that's all you need to know. Move along, nothing to see here.

miyamoto1383d ago

Don't worry Pat, the PS4 will be Perfectly fine when it launches.
It doesn't need sell out titles.
