Cerny: “We don’t say Here’s a Box you Can Watch TV On;” “Huge audience” for Console Focused on Games

PlayStation 4 Lead Architect Mark Cerny is very confident on the potential of Sony’s upcoming console as a machine created primarily for games, and while it can do other things too, he doesn’t have any qualms in identifying the difference with Microsoft’s message

The story is too old to be commented.
Langkasuka963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

Well, he's the PS4 architect. Many parents are overly bias and protective of their baby, so close to being released. When it comes to describing their own consoles, I always take his and Major Nelson's opinions with a pinch of salt and "Gambateh!" :3

@Abriael
Maybe 'bias' was the wrong word, oops. So Cerny pointed out a common preconception for the X1 and add it to PS4's advantage. If folks are twitching about what he said, I think it says more about themselves than about Cerny~

Abriael963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

I don't honestly see the bias here. The other camp does say "hey, here's a box you can watch TV on" quite a lot, it is a prominent part of their message, and it gets repeated a lot (latest one was penello on GameStop's Q&A today) while it isn't part of Sony's message. It's a real difference and he pointed it out.

Blacksand1963d ago

The XB1 is 720p with a 1080p up-scaled because MS tried to make it a t.v hub first and a gaming console second. My Fios is 720p reg. channels and 1080p on HD channels. When you mix the two that's what you get 720p with a up-scaled of 1080p, because of t.v part of the console.

zeal0us963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

Nothing bias about the statement. He's just stating how Sony presents their console compared to MS.

Even I thought "here's a box you can watch TV on" plenty of times. Especially after that conference MS had back in May. MS themselves open the door for statement.

4Sh0w963d ago (Edited 962d ago )

Sure its biased but I'd expect nothing less.

Blacksand If 1080p 60fps is the gold standard we can expect go forward for next gen Forza5 is the only 1080p 60fps full exclusive launch game= X1 the 1st to truly hit that standard.

If we are talking about great games for the primary reason we buy a games console then X1 is delivering the most AAA next gen games, one of which called Ryse looks graphically better than anything on ps4 at launch.

Again I got no problem with what Cerny is saying its the nature of PR to sell your product, but truth is hes downplaying the TV aspect because obviously he knows they cannot compete with X1 in that dept, but to say microsoft is not focused on gaming so far is just BS given both platforms offerings at the moment.

Now Im sure sony will step their game up over the next few months and definitely over the years but micro seems to be doing the same with future plans.

@4show

The truth is I don't need to have my tv hooked into my console. I want my console to be game focused. Everything else is secondary. Respecting the fact that there are some that want these features, there are still a lot of us who don't need it. Especially at the expense of the gaming experience

To even say that MS has more at the start is very subjective. Sony exclusives trump MS... This is a fact. Now Sony has the edge in multiplats as well.

One question for x1 fans, has anyone asked how this will affect the x1's lifespan? I for one will be watching.

@zealous

Your spot on..

AbortMission962d ago

Forza 5 the only 1080p 60fps game? Lmao an obviously rushed game with little improvement should be running at that resolution and FPS.

4Sh0w962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

Heavy No I wont stop talking about Forza5 because Blacksand brought up the 1080p arguement so its fair to note that its the only game rendering 1080p 60fps the entire game and of course your prebaked lighting comments are wrong Forza5 does alot in game as many previews speak to. X1 is also offering plenty if variety now and with games to come like Project Spark, D4, QB, etc. Ryse is the best looking next gen game, you even don't really dispute cause you just ranted about other aspects, we havent played it so we'll see.

I love how you want to use bench mark specs when its convenient to say look at KZ SF and
Knack at 1080p but KZ SF doesnt maintain it throughout which is a compromise and its not like its a huge open world game and Knack is a very basic platform game. Then when faced with Forza5 1080p and 60fps then its not about that its about the game type. So which is it are we going on res or what the game does? lol whatevers convenient for your arguement.

Alexander I can respect that and I have a very nice TV setup I dont necessarily need X1 to do TV integration I just like that it does and it makes it just a bit more convenient for me to do 2 things and more that I do very often separately no more seamlessly, lol I dont see myself trying to play a game and watch tv but in the course of a evening I do start and stop doing both regularly so this is just a little convenience thats all.

ovnipc962d ago

This guy its a genius, major nelson its a joke. I want a console to play games, other features r nice but mainly its for games.

georgeenoob962d ago

Yet X1 is currently doing better in the games department than the PS4. Oh the irony.

UltimateMaster962d ago

Look, if Microsoft didn't want people to have the perception your buying a cable box with the Xbox One, they would not have had the reveal in May.

Volkama962d ago

He's stating a fact AND it's laced with bias. Bias you'd expect from a prominent figure at either company.

It is funny though, what he's discussing is a missing feature but he's spinning it into an advantage. A "nuh nuh look what we can't do" statement. It works in the current console climate, but it's still funny.

mcstorm962d ago

This really is a stupid argument. Even if games are most important to you, don't you use your TV for other things? So by saying you don't want the Xbox to have all these new features, you're basically saying when you're watching TV it's more important to you.

The PS4 isn't going to be able to tell you when your friends are putting a party together, or send you game invites while you're watching broadcast or cable TV, or streaming your media over DLNA, or watching video over mass media storage.

Which console is more for gamers, the one that brings gaming to the centre of everything you do? Or the one that makes gaming a seperate activity off to the side of everything else you do?

LeCreuset962d ago

@Volkama

You didn't read the article, did you?

Death962d ago

At least he is honest. He says they built a multi-purpose console, but they tell their customers it's mainly for gaming.

It's not built mainly for gaming, it's built to be multi-purpose. The message they say is it is mainly for gaming.

Not to be too redundant, but what they did and what they say are actually different.

Microsoft has been telling their customers it does multiple things from the beginning. Sony is the more honest of the two because they are telling people what they want to hear. Makes perfect sense.

Mosiac77962d ago

Microsoft adding this means I'm getting more for the money. For me it frees up an extra HDMI port and no more looking for my tv remote to switch between inputs. I like how he down plays it, but he knows it is a great idea. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. Now sony fans vote me down but you know is true.

svoulis962d ago

@4Sh0w

"Now Im sure sony will step their game up over the next few months and definitely over the years but micro seems to be doing the same with future plans."

You do realize as much as Microsoft has 1 more next-gen exclusive coming out at launch, thats it until titan fall? (not including the kinect games and dance games)

http://tinyurl.com/ovsfpzn

and then what? months of waiting and waiting.

cryptkiller962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

TV's and their function for movies and programs have been easily accessible for years, why do you need a console to watch it when all you need to do is change the input on your tv. consoles started off for playing games and should stay focused on them n nothing else, that's the main reason people buy them. Its called a games console for a reason.

Boody-Bandit962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

"Forza5 is the only 1080p 60fps full exclusive launch game= X1 the 1st to truly hit that standard"

Well considering Forza 4 had 500 cars and 25 tracks whereas Forza 5 only has 200 cars and 14 tracks and a bump, not a significant leap but a bump, in graphics over it's last gen predecessor? I would hope it could achieve 1080p 60fps since it's half the game Forza 4 was /is.

And let us not forget that racing games are a lot less intensive / taxing than other genres like FPS or open world games. So seriously. Really? If Forza 5 wasn't 1080p that would be an absolute joke.

On topic:
Cerny is merely stating Sony's vision. Something MS is sorely lacking and the reason I'm not getting and X1. Forza 5 is far and away my favorite game that MS has exclusively but it's more of a prologue game than a true sequel. I refuse to pay full freight for half a game.

What's the most frustrating aspect about Forza 5 the tracks they removed will be released over time but I bet none of them will be free.

I'm going to wait until next year and see what MS has to offer over the next several months. Or maybe wait until Forza 6. Hopefully by then they will build a full game.

So this gen I'm starting out with only one console. The one that is focused on games 1st and everything else is an after thought. I don't need an all in one box when I have several products that already offer me all the options and features and some of them do it on the go.

Cerny and Sony get it.
MS doesn't.

LeCreuset962d ago

How is it xHeavYx reply to a comment about Forza and Ryse gets labeled as trolling? Someone else promoted Forza and Ryse to make a point that XB1 has better exclusives than PS4, and xHeavYx countered by bringing up some negative aspects of those games. So one guy is allowed to big up those titles to make his argument, but the other isn't allowed to counter by mentioning those titles' negatives? And they call this N4Sony.

CryofSilence962d ago

The word "bias" is subject to tenses. For example:
He is biased against little blue men.
His bias against twinkies is irrational.

Please understand a word if you are going to use it.

Kidmyst962d ago

@ Georgeenoob, really? I see otherwise if you look at the big picture beyond launch day.

n4gamingm962d ago

i get your point of view i retract my previous statement, my fanboy came out lol

nukeitall962d ago

Of course Cerny is biased, because he directed the PS4 directoin and arguably the main person behind it.

That is like asking if the CEO believe the direction he is taking the company is the right one?

That is no different than MS.

However, I beg to differ. I believe that an all in one device is far more valuable to me, than just a gaming device.

I like what I see with MS approach about their all in one media strategy. I largely use my entertainment time already like that, just by using two screens cumbersome. Now I can do it conveniently on one screen.

Xbox One, All in One, Day One! =D

It's not his fault Microsoft is more focused on providing a TV experience. Also, why wouldn't he take jabs at Microsoft? If the roles were reversed and Sony was the one who messed up, You can bet your ass Microsoft would be attacking them.

Edit 1 - @Logic - No, but this is business for Sony/Microsoft. They're not supposed to be kissing each others asses.

Edit 2 - Why is this not professional? Microsoft put them self in a situation where they can be scrutinized. Not to mention the fact that what Cerny said IS true, they've never claimed to have built a console that you can watch TV on.

LOGICWINS963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

So two wrongs make a right?

/facepalm

EDIT: But they can conduct themselves as professionals no?

GiggMan963d ago (Edited 963d ago )

@Logic. He is professionally pointing out a fact that the system he spent a large portion of his time on for the past few years is not focused on TV.

Nothing wrong with that. If he wanted to be "unprofessional" he could have tossed around some 1080p vs 720p mumbo like most people do.

thehitman963d ago

More of logicfails... arent they two competing companies? You think they are going to hold hands and sing kumbaya? Its not wrong to say when your doing something different and considered right compared to the competition. When you turn on the TV all you see is ads nonstop of companies putting down each other. Hell apple did it all the time to MS with those mac > pc commercials. Its MS responsibility to not put themselves in those positions to be easily taken apart like that. There is a reason Sony can make it seem like a good thing they are not doing something MS is doing. The core buy consoles primarily for gaming not for anything else.

Prime157962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

@LOGICWINS

I didn't interpret any of that article as being immmature, especially since it was sliced up quotes.

I doubt that Cerny was using, "box to watch tv" as a means of a slam. Honestly, I think those of you who thought that comment was directed at you are getting waaay too defensive about brand loyalty.

Death962d ago

That's the thing though, Sony isn't telling people what they are doing, they are telling them what they want to hear.

http://www.geek.com/games/s...

VitaTv isn't about bringing games to your tv, it's about selling their subscription tv service to gamers under the Playstation brand. The PS4 will also be used for the service.

Sony isn't more focused on gamers, Sony is better at telling them what they want to hear. What Sony does and what Sony says aren't always the same.

Rainstorm81962d ago

@Death

Which company has brought out more first party games over the last 5 years......I'll wait..

Death962d ago

Nintendo followed by Sony.

How many Playstation fans buy all the exclusives? How many bought the best exclusive to hit the platform this year?

You can brag about exclusives all day long or you can go buy them. Not many people actually buy exclusive games. The nice thing about exclusives is you are bound to find one that appeals to you sooner or later. If 10 hit the platform I would hope one or two appeal to some people, but do the math. How many people buy any given game? It's not like Sony exclusives are picked up by the majority of the user base. You are lucky to get 5%. Games like GT and Halo get closer to 10%. What do you think the other 90-95% are doing?

Rainstorm81962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

Death that isnt your argument...... you said

"Sony isn't more focused on gamers, Sony is better at telling them what they want to hear."

That isn't possible if they are right behind Nintendo in first party game support. They support the gamer by releasing multiple and varied game franchises..... That my biggest draw to Sony games consoles...Games.... PS+ has proven this as well by giving back to the gamer

At the end of the day people buy what they prefer but saying Sony isn't focused on Gamers is flat-out false and history proves it to be false

extermin8or962d ago

@death they are okaying ganes lije COD and GTA and littke else. Sony arent being dishonest read the article it was primairily built for games he's just saying it ALSO does alot of thofthings MS make out only the Xbox one is doing... Which is true but he's also saying the reason they aren't promotingnthe extra features atm and that it isnt a focus is because the main bulk of their audience doesnt care that much and would rather have high quality games.

webeblazing962d ago

I truthfully don't see how being able to switch form game to tv seamlessly as a bad thing people are just trying to downplay it whenever they get a chance.

Death962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

Both systems are built primarily for games. They also are trying to find ways to take our non-gaming time and find a way to make money with it. Sony did not strike a deal with Viacom and trademark SonyTv because they are focused purely on gaming. Right now they are marketing to their "core" market which is gamers. Next they will go after more casual gamers. This isn't a new strategy, it is what they have been doing for over a decade. Both are creating a single box to control your living room. Look at the subscriptions that will be available on the PS4. Two are gaming related and two are not.

1. PS+
2. Music Unlimited
3. Gaikai
4. Sony TV

Of the 20 Sony studios, 3 have shut down and a couple other were realigned to do PSP/Vita ports of PS3 games. The rest will be split between PS3 and PS4 development until the PS3 is no longer relevant. Sony's focus is being split, not geared towards gaming like many believe. Not a knock at Sony, they are doing what they need to survive.

The picture Sony and many fans paint where they are focusing their effort primarily on gaming with the PS4 with 17 studios cranking out games isn't true. You can look at what they are doing and see what is said and what is happening are not the same.

IcicleTrepan962d ago

'We don't say here's a box you can watch tv on'

H0RSE962d ago

@thehitman

"More of logicfails... arent they two competing companies? You think they are going to hold hands and sing kumbaya?"

- You're really not seeing the point LOGIC was making, do you?...

Just because they are competing companies, doesn't mean "all bets are off" and they can just go at it like two teenage girls in a High School cafeteria. Cerny is still a professional, representing a huge multinational company, so the bias and low blows, although fans/supporters might revel in them and find them funny, are little more than juvenile BS, and the same goes for MS. Do I expect MS and SOny to go out to dinner and share each others wives with one another? No, but I do expect a level of professionalism above low blows and cheap shots.

Even in a competitive environment, some degree of couth is expected. This is why they have things like "unsportsmanlike conduct" in professional sports.

mav805962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

Nothing Cerny said was even remotely immature or low. He simply stated a fact as he sees it, and it wasn't even a bias, Microsoft HAS spent much more time pushing the TV and third party aspects than Sony has.

If Microsoft hadn't been so focused on those things, spending hundreds of millions for NFL contracts etc., maybe they could have spent more on their GPU so that it was closer to the PS4. That isn't Cerny's fault but it shows that Microsoft's focus is a detriment to the primary aspect and reason to own a gaming console.

nukeitall962d ago

@Death:

I agree, Sony isn't the shining beacon of gaming they would like everyone to believe. After all, they are so happy you are reselling your games they are forbidding it explicitly in their terms and conditions:

http://www.neowin.net/news/...

Heck they are even forbidding renting the games, which is protected by the first sale doctrine and what allows companies like Netflix and GameFly to exist!

pointing out the deferences between the the two consoles is pure logic .. the man talks about 101 basics for consoles business, if u find it immature it just proves that u r a die hard fanboy

Sci0n962d ago

xbox fans there is nothing to be offened about that's how microsoft wants there console to be recognized. The last 3 xbox one commercials I seen had a form of tv in the marketing the latest one being the football commercial with urlacher and ray lewis playing madden then switching to watch football on tv. Its like seriously why waist all the resources on that when right now while gaming with a friend on current gen you guys can pause the game and switch hdmi to the tv and and voice chat with each other while watching the game.

shadyiswin957d ago

because input switching is so last gen.....unless you have a bs4 of course :D

mistertwoturbo962d ago

Nothing wrong about the truth. In fact he says one of the best things about their approach with the PS4

"It’s just that when we go out and we talk about it, we talk about it as primarily a game console. And by the way, it does those other things too."

You read that? Primarily a game console. Which is absolutely correct for gamers.

Mogwai962d ago

It also happens to be TRUE!

MightyNoX962d ago

Well, he has a point. Every ad for Xbox has been "Hey, does gaming interfere with the habit of watching TV. Well, here's a way for you to watch TV."

otherZinc962d ago

Why only 2 (JUST TWO) games at launch Mark? Since you're stressing games so hard.

And one of them is Knack, so your PS4 only has Killzone:SF As a major exclusive.

LeCreuset962d ago

I think you mean "why only two AAA titles at launch?" One got pushed back. What are you going to do? The one that got pushed back is doing more than the racer on XB1, and will be out a couple of months later. Screw long term though, right? Who thinks about that?

The one thing you can say about Sony's AAA's is that none of them give the impression of being last gen titles that were held up, slapped with a fresh coat of paint, and released as "next-gen" titles. IJS, when your flagship title started off development as a Kinect 1, on-rails, motion-controlled, QTE, hack 'n' slash, you probably shouldn't be talking.

Sony customers have plenty to hold us over between the PS4 lineup and the exclusives that were still being released for PS3, such as Ni No Kuni, Beyond Two Souls, Sly Cooper, Tales of Xillia, Dragon's Crown, and The Last of Us. See, when you aren't being starved for titles, you aren't so hungry as MS has made its fanbase. They hold back on giving you games in the latter years of the console, then pad the launch lineup with polished last gen games once you're hungry and willing to buy that new console. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

Death962d ago

I'll be honest, I own all the Killzones and never thought of them as AAA games. I guess with almost 3 million copies sold and a Meta of 84 KZ3 makes the cut.

As for your list of games to hold you over, The Last of Us already was released. The rest are niche titles at best and will cater to a very small percentage of PS3 users. They are hardly reason to go out and buy a PS4 since neither console is b/c.

I've said this before and it is worth repeating, The Last of Us was probably the best game released last year. Less than 5% of the PS3 userbase bought it. That means 95% of Playstation fans didn't care. Exclusives are very nice to have, but they only appeal to a relatively small group of users. If you can't get 95% of the people that own a PS3 to care about Last of Us, how many Xbox fans do you think give a damn when you throw it in their face?

insomnium2962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

@ death

FFS you take ANY game and compare it to the entire install base it will seem insignificant.

How about COD with 15 million sold (out of my ass)? 15/80 million is only 18.75% of the install base cared enough to buy it. That leaves well over 80% of the install base not caring at all about said COD. So now can we say that even the most popular multiplat is irrelevant? Hell going about it that way makes EVERY game on the thing irrelevant and insignificant.

I'm playing TLOU and Dragon's Crown almost as we speak. I'm in no rush for next gen. My backlog is long as hell.

My god you are the definition of a fanboy to the core. Anything to downplay the opposition. Every single exclusive is a nieche title appealing only to a small percentage of the userbase. Now if we were to talk about games that DO make an impact let's talk about the biggest games there is. The persentage of the install base that found COD was appealing was....oh wait!

YOU.ARE.PATHETIC and you only embarrass yourself by cherry picking like that. Talk about self-ownage....smfh...

LeCreuset962d ago

@Death

1st see insomnium's reply to you.

Now, could you be any more off the mark, or did the point just fly completely over your head? Were we talking about sales, or Triple A games? Would you rather have quality games, or games that sell well? I guess in this case, gameplay all of a sudden doesn't matter, huh? We save those gameplay arguments for when people bash the lower resolution on XB1 multiplayer titles. If you want to talk sales, the best indication we have of that is pre-orders, and Killzone is the number one selling next-gen exclusive. If I remember correctly, Sony's exclusives overall also beat out the pre-order numbers for XB1.

The point isn't to talk about sales, though (even though you also lose that argument). The point was about next gen quality exclusives, and how each company has fared in supporting their consoles with exclusives. TLOU is the GOY, but it could just as easily have been held up and released as a so-called next gen title to pad the PS4's launch lineup, at the expense of PS3 owners. That applies to the other games I listed as well.

P_Bomb962d ago (Edited 962d ago )

@Death

TLOU (the exclusive you keep namedropping) actually sold MORE this year than the multiplats you so revere. On each console.

Tomb Raider, Dead Space 3, Crysis 3, BioShock Infinite, MetalGearRising, Rayman Legends, Diablo 3, DMC, Metro Last Light, Splinter Cell Blacklist, SaintsRow 4, Lost Planet 3. TLOU sold more on the PS3 than all those. Even the XBox editions sold less.

So by *your* logic, even LESS people buy multiplats. If theres no point to an exclusive that doesn't sell to 3/4 of the 80 mil' userbase, theres even LESS POINT to multiplats that sell less than that to the same install numbers.

***Every game*** on that list by your definition, only appealed to "a relatively small group of users".

Do you understand now how utterly ridiculous your argument is? The industry would collapse by your benchmarks.

The "niche" comment was off too. I didn't know God of War & Gran Turismo were niche, both of which have releases this year too. MLB The Show is pretty much the only baseball game that matters anymore. NiNoKuni, Puppeteer, Dragons Crown, Beyond are all new IPs. Gotta start somewhere, right?

Hicken962d ago

Wow.

So, according to Death(who really listens to him, anyway?), you only get AAA status by selling a certain amount, rather than by the budget given.

And, also according to Death, the vast majority of gamers don't care about the vast majority of games, because the vast majority never buy ANY game. Every game ever made only appeals to a very small group of gamers. So why should anybody make games anymore?

Holy crap. I can't believe I just read that.

moparful99962d ago

Death Your bias is dripping from every word you type the closer and closer we get to launch.. You wanna play the "sales game"? Whats your answer to GranTurismo 5? The best selling console exclusive between Micro and Sony this past generation. But It was only bought by a fraction of the 80mil install base so it must be irrelevant right? Smdh.

You are missing the point in all of this. Look at all of the exclusives that Sony released this year on the PS3 with Ratchet and Clank releasing today and GT6 coming in december..

Sony could have easily held those titles over to bolster the PS4's launch lineup to have bragging rights and rub it in the competitions face, but they didn't... Why is that? Maybe its because they are a GAMER centric company that strives to please it's fanbase despite your weak argument in the contrary.

I mean hell Ryse was supposed to be a 360 kinect exclusive but now its a lauded X1 launch title. Microsoft is treating the 360 like a sacrificial lamb for the sake of the X1. It's obvious where the two companies' loyalties lie..

It's not Cerny's fault that Microsoft spent their launch event marketing the Xbone as a tv box. If you don't want people to talk about the Xbone that way, your beef is really with Microsoft, not Cerny.

webeblazing962d ago

believe it or not a lot of gamers are going to buy the xbone for this very reason. do you know how much tv Americans watch its one thing ms know and that's the u.s. audience look at their marketing last gen, and sonys was none existent

once again it was a media event,on top of that with the tv feature it will actually mean more gaming. When i watch tv my xbox is off usually,now it will always be on and ill be ready to always join a party basically anytme im in front of my tv,looked at as a set back for gamers when in reality it's a blessing.

media briefing event showed more games than sony's reveal.

e3 blew people minds with the announcements of titanfall,killer instinct,sunset overdrive and halo 5, ryse left looking as the best game of the show and is still the best looking game on either console. Now that the ps4 is out in the wild my facebook is lit up with people saying they are happy with it but should of waited,only a few are frends are friends are getting both and all cant wait for the xbox one "ps4 doesnt feel next gen,just feels new" this is coming from people i rubbed in there face it would be boring and lackluster,for them to swallow there pride and say i might be right,or im right for now is huge lol.

I would copy there reviews here but basically it consist of the slow mandatory installs,horrible network functionality,born basic and cluttered UI,light bar annoying when playing at night,one friend even hated how it has the same beep as the ps3,just really felt as if sony rushed or took a lot of short cuts but for $399 who could complain really,anyways xbox one 4 more days :)

What did he say that wasn't true? Is Microsoft NOT marketing the One as primarily a TV-watching machine? 90% of the commercial spots they're running are the one with a guy walking into a room and watching TV.
