PlayStation Criticizes Xbox One Yet Again

Junkiemonkeys:

Sony takes shots at Microsoft's latest console, only to remove their post quickly, replacing it with a new picture. We were able to grab screen shots of both posts. (PS4, Xbox One)

Why are they attacking and not congratulating them ? like literally this is sad , Microsoft had congratulate Sony on there launch , why not do the same Sony ?
Angels3785  +   299d ago | Well said
They will when it actually launches you watch.

Plus its stating facts. Its not misleading. It may be firing shots, but that's business your product needs to stand out. Its a dog eat dog business. If you don't keep up you become irrelevant. It would be wrong if they poked fun at a subjective thing, but this is objective and a fair point to make.

It sets their product apart. Its called COMPETITION just because it bothers people most likely due to their allegences being elswhere doesn't make it wrong or playstations problem. It is actually microsofts problem for allowing playstation to be able to make a claim like this and causing their fans insecurities against the competition.

Also it was above surprising microsoft said congrats to sony. It was quite admirable and VERY unlike them. Microsoft at EVERY opportunity likes to one up playstation even if it is PURELY subjective kr even pownright misleading.

This is a fair honest and rightful claim for sony to make. Period.

I think Sony is the "bad guy" here , there was a bad guy at first and that was actually Microsoft but for now looks like Sony is turning the bad guy , what I mean in advantage , it's takedown time , just like when Microsoft brought a big boat in fornt of the PS3 launch event in France

@heavy

That doesn't make this ok. The justification is wrong. Two wrongs don't make a right. Their statement is subjective and taking body shots for no reason. Sony stated a confirmed fact that happens to downput their competition.

And as you can see the heads of sony did not approve of it and it is removed. A PR guy probably did it and people like shuhei said "we don't need to do that take it down". It doesn't represent the viewpoint or the direction of the company if it gets removed. Microsoft does this stuff but worse all the time at any chance they can get and it stays there....

Sony keeps Microsoft in check, while Microsoft keeps Sony on it toes (hence why each OS for each console has more than enough "reserved" ram for future implementations).

Well, or patch it so it doesn't crash...looks like that's the only game running sub 1080 - and it's @900p. I doubt we'll see 720p at all on PS4. AC4 after the patch has headroom - no impact on performance -> http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

And...why shouldn't Sony boost this? It's the f...ng truth. Use it! Anybody else would. It's a competitive advantage. Of course it should be advertised.

Just look at the "Hi I'm a PC" and "Hi I'm a MAC" commercials, it's all about differentiating yourself and showing what you have over the competition. If you can't stand the heat you don't belong in business.

Jack and "his" are nothing like Don Mattrick buddy. They are out there constantly doing interviews and trying to seem personable to the audience. Don Mattrick would never show up for anything unless a major console launch was on the way, or there was a major press conference. That is why his PR was so out of touch, he just didn't know how to communicate. So he ended up saying things like "Don't have internet? Good news. Get an Xbox 360."

They are NOTHING alike at all. Shame on you for comparing. I'm not even saying Microsoft has all bad execs. I very much like Major Nelson. I can see why some people don't but I do.

Still funny to this day. I like seeing Microsoft and Sony taking shots at each other because it shows they do it for fun. They don't do it to derail the other brand, they BOTH need to be successful to help the industry grow. Sony did a lot of good things differently because of Microsoft, and Microsoft improved in areas because of Sony. People think Microsoft and Sony hate each other, but in reality it's only the fanboy "wars" that make it seem that way.

I went to Gamestop today and about 4 dudes were camping out. This is actually a slow quiet area where I live, so it is to be expected.

I asked the store clerk if I could score an XBOX 1 tonight with no pre order He said: "Come on back tonight I got a few Extras and I will hook you up"

I would grab it but after just getting a PS4 I will wait. It was good to know someone will get lucky tonight without a pre order he really wants an xbone.

It seems like that original comment could be directed at all console competition. Wow, some people are very sensitive about their console of choice eh?

It's ok, maybe kinect will see your tears and put nice pics of kitten and puppies on your screen to cheer you up, but it might be in 720p :P lol.

Seriously, if this is a issue you are a cry baby whiner. Companies take shots at each other all the time. And realistically, it isn't a complete lie when you think about the majority of games on XB 1. Just buy your console of choice and stop whining. Guess what! I have a PS4 and I know of 6 (yes six) people in my social circle that have switched from MS console to Sony's console. Does that make us better or worse people??? No, so stop whining over little puddly crap like this and you will probably reduce a good portion of the stress in your life.

Edit: I just remembered MS sending a boat with a massive sign that read something like "Xbox (or Microsoft) loves you" or something like that across the waterfront of a Sony launch event. So how do you feel about that "classy" act? If your going to paint Sony petty or immature, as you are desperately trying, then how do you feel about that incident? I patiently await your response.

Seriously, what is wrong with some of you people? If they said "Get the most powerful system available for $100 less than the competition!" would that be too much?

You do realize that in marketing, making yourself stand out from the competition isn't considered a negative, right?

you forget that MS took shots at sony 3 days b4 launch because, sony 1 party game was getting bad reviews, killzone was the only good release good 1 party game on ps4. they are just doing the same in there own way. but who care, u like x1 get it u like ps4 get it, simple as that.
Cryptcuzz  +   299d ago
I don't think it is as serious as you are making it out to be. Both companies take jabs at each other and it has been going on in gaming since the days of NES and Genesis.

Hell, it is that way with every market I can think of. Whether it be video cards, mobile phones, internet searches, computers and video games just to name a few.

Think of it like marketing for sports. Teams takes jabs at each other, boxers do the same pre-match, or what have you. The point is, in the end, they all have respect for each other as businesses competing with one another.

There are many times Sony and MS have acknowledged and congratulated each other. Usually during big events like console releases or sales made during the Holidays, so I don't see a big deal with this. If anything, it creates hype and makes our hobbies more interesting than it already is.

This is beyond pathetic IMO. For Microsoft to go out of their way to congratulate Sony on their launch, only to have Sony a week later publicly talk $hit on the Xbone launch... i'm really at a loss for words.

It's quite clear that the PS4 has some clear advantages, which SHOULD give Sony confidence enough to at least not act like someone's prison b*tch, getting passed around.

The only explanation for Sony making such rude and unprofessional comments is that they're really worried, and their emotions got the better of them.

Lastly... you'd think Sony, being Japanese, would exhibit at least some manners. Especially since Japan's culture puts a heavy influence on respect and decorum.

Pretty silly "attack":

So is Sony saying that only the PS4 games that run in native 1080p are next-gen games? What does that say about the games on PS4 that aren't? Are they not next-gen? Are they not worth buying?

Stupid and unnecessary dig, IMO.

I don't think they are saying that at all. I think they are saying if you had the choice between two of the same games on consoles, why pick the console that delivers it at lower native resolution.

There is nothing wrong with advertising your advantages over the competition, the majority of PS4 games are 1080p so thats not a lie , the majority of xbone games are 720p so thats not a lie either, why should sony not mention these things when advertising? MS advertise that they are getting COD maps first on TV and BF4 maps first on TV.

Typical of a Japanese company? That`s western marketing techniques not Japanese. In Japan you have to show respect to your competition or enemy and be humble.

As for the launch lineup, it`s not like MS has that awesome launch lineup. Ryse being mediocre besides of having nice graphics, DR3 seems ok and Forza 5 seems ok and it`s a very stripped down version compared to previous games.

people are so sensitive. They made a factual statement , they weren't stretching the truth. The resolution is a clear differentiating factor b/n the two consoles and they are exploiting this weakness in their competition.
TRGMatt  +   299d ago
Doesn't seem like an outright attack, just a competitive statement. A "Tide keeps colors in clothes, unlike the competition!" sort of thing.

The war is on, man. ANy way you slice it, gaining a competitive edge in marketing is mandatory and Sony doesn't have NEAR the marketing budget that Microsoft does so...take em where you can get em.

Xbox magazine tweeted "greatness awaits?" after the negative Killzone and Knack reviews...sony is just stating facts which is fully justified in my book.

This has nothing to do with taking it back.

They removed the "next Gen" because it may steer ppl away from buying a ps4. They figure some may be confused. Never underestimate the stupidity of consumers.

Why would they remove one without removing the 720 comment? It was merely an edit for another reason.

Sony are literally assholes. Jeez. Didn't Microsoft just congratulate you and you give them this.

KHATL66  +   299d ago
oh please...microsoft posted they had the "best games" during the ps4 launch so i see no difference. At least this is fact based and not opinion.

they in no way at all bashed the xbox? they said why settle. which is true why settle for the lesser yet more expensive system? pretty much honest marketing in its prime.
TheUndertaker85  +   299d ago
Funny thing, really. In the post from Sony where exactly do they directly mention Xbox One? They don't you say?

But funny too everyone knows exactly who they're talking about. So curious here, wouldn't that mean its a pretty well known fact?

I'd ask the better questions next time. Why settle for 720p for $100 more when you can have 1080p for $100 less?

Here's a little slogan for MS going forward too:
Pay more, get less! We're MS!
LeCreuset  +   299d ago
Apparently, "the power of the cloud," is still their slogan, as they continue to claim the Xbox is more powerful, even now.

Either people are simply too young or too ignorant to remember the blatant all out ad war of the 16 bit era, as showcased in this commercial...

I for one welcome the jabs and whatever uppercut they want to throw at each other. The world is not made up of mostly amish and mormon people. This is a billion dollar business and if i had some stake in it than i would try and feature my product and discredit any similar product if it meant making billions...this isn't sesame street, it's wall street... Deal with it.
CJDUNCAN  +   299d ago
why settle for 720p when almost every ps4 game supports 1080p natively?

I didn't read that did I, since when is a patch update considered native? Since when was all X1 games going to be 720p? These guys at both companies are worse then the fanboys on both sides.
LeCreuset  +   299d ago
You're just the type MS is looking to sell to. You have no idea what native 1080p is. Don't worry though, MS just said their system is more powerful due to "the power of the cloud."

http://n4g.com/news/1399058...
CJDUNCAN  +   298d ago
When you play AC IV without the patch update is it 1080p native? No. You can't twist that any other way.

Who cares what both companies are saying, they're both making asses out of themselves with all the nonfactual bluster.

Keep up with your fanboyism's, it's working for you buddy.

@cjduncan

Sir, you are not understanding the concept of native 1080p. Even with w patch, it is still native. Native refers to the system not having to scale 720p up to 1080p. It is natively 1080p - sans scaling.
CJDUNCAN  +   298d ago
I have to disagree with you on that @Everlastingfate. I understand what you're saying though, my stance is that if it takes a patch to boost a game to 1080p then it's not natively 1080p.
Everlastingfate  +   298d ago
Okay, but the ps4 does not need to scale up the game. The xbone would. It would have to stretch 720p to 1080p. A patch is irrelevant. So, despite your stance, you are completely wrong.
