The playstation 4 really does seem to have a life of its own, I cant believe how well the thing is selling, can only be a good thing for playstation fans.

Dwalls11711173d ago

Great to be one of the historic 8+ million that own a PS4
BUT I think now its time for Sony to show how much they appreciate US

Slow down with the indies
Increase first and second party strength
If if your not letting us get EA access maks PS now Pricing Very!!! Good!!!

IRetrouk1173d ago

I like what they have provided so far, a little slow but sonys first party will deliver, just like on ps1, 2 and 3, as for ea access, I have not read much about it, so im not sure what it offers me as a ps4 owner, I just hope that the increased profits get funneled back into studios.

uth111172d ago

there are plenty of first and second party games in development, just takes time to finish them.

I don't see why indies need to slow, you can have both!

chrismichaels041172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

Its great to see the PlayStation brand doing so well. The overwhelming support for the PS4 from the gaming community has been incredibly impressive.

Mikeyy1172d ago

Indies have no effect on whether or not AAA games come or not. So there is no need to slow them down.

Its the HD era, AAA games take time to make.

BitbyDeath1172d ago

No Indies are often a lot more creative than tired franchise sequel AAA. You cannot stop the indie train.

szenkapotamus1172d ago

I don't see why they have to slow down with the smaller games. Keep them coming but reveal some of those first party games being held close to the chest. Can't wait for gamescom

SilentNegotiator1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

"slow down with the indies"? How does Sony "slow down" the production of third party indie titles? And why in the hell would they if they could?

You're just coming off as an ignorant concern troll, trying to spread the "indiestation 4" BS.

BG115791172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

If the PS4 ever outsells the Xbox One 4 to 1, than there names will have a sense.

And Indies are the blood and bone of this gaming era. Saying that there are many Indies in PS4 is a really good thing. The more, the better.

Good AAA take at least an year to be developed and that if they are lucky. AAA take to many resources now a days. You'll be lucky if you have one AAA per month and a half that you like. Indies games will fill that time. More over, some Indie games have better quality than some AAA games, so, it's always a win-win situation.

The_HarryEtTubMan1172d ago

Dude PS4 isnt even a year old, just released Infamous, MLB the Show and about to release Drive Club. Then Little Big Planet 3...not to mention the best console version of every multiplat and by far the best indies.

Big games take time, it isn't even a year old....a lot of games are coming...stop crying, have you never had a new console before?

larrysdirtydrawss1172d ago

sony not making indies,,,their 1st party is creating for the ps4 mostly... they just allow indie devs to put their games on their console

mechlord1172d ago

just a little over a week ago i started to play transistor. i've just finished it and i'm loving the OST.

If these are the indies you're talking about, then shame on you!

I think SONY doesn't need to stop indies and they don't need to stop 1st and 2nds. You can find great games and sh!tty ones in both camps.

Ezz20131171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

@dwalls1171

sure sure
let me get Sony's Kaz on the phone

*ring ring*

Me: Hey,Kaz ...dwalls1171 want AAA games NOW
Kaz: But AAA games take time to fin...
Me: i don't care..Release Uncharted 4 now
Kaz: but it's not rea......
Me: I said NOW Goddamnit
Kaz: alright alright....damnit

*Hang the Phone*

Happy now ?!

fr0sty1171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

I think they need to speed up with the indies. I'm having more fun with them than just about every AAA title out there right now. Those are the games that dare to be different, and they're not all 8 or 16 bit throwback games. Right now War Thunder gets more playtime than any other game I own... and it was free!

This reminds me of the PS2 launch in 2000/2001.

Mikeyy1172d ago

You are talking out your ass, all we had for ps2 at launch was the summoner..

With ps4 we've got way more to choose from, I still can't put down battlefield 4.

04STIBluByU1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

@ Mikeyy

You must not have played The Bouncer or Oni. I had all 3 games and The Bouncer was my favorite!

IRetrouk1172d ago

Dont forget tekken tag and ridge racer, ps2s launch was stronger than most, I still remember playing tekken and ridge racer and getting goose bumps, I was young though lol

truefan11172d ago

Just so I'm clear, did it go from 3:1 two days ago to 3:1 today? I guess the mods have a bit a leniency on dup articles if it is positive playstation.

EData1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

But a thousand similar PSNow doomed articles are ok with you?

SpinalRemains1381172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

Its been 3:1 consistently since launch last year.

You dig?

Here's an example.

Four people stand in a room. 3 of them buy a PS product. One guy buys an Xbox. You are that last guy.

BX811172d ago

What psnow doomed articles? Fix the damn prices. That's all.

EData1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

Many are melodramatic like the service is a failure, and they are all stating the same things. I agree that all they need to do is "fix the damn prices" but making it seem like a failure of a service because of it is flame bate, and obviously people don't mind. Plus they are all duplicating the same argument, which people don't seem to have a problem with, until an article says something positive about Sony.

MysticStrummer1172d ago

You'll never be clear, because you don't want to be.

TheSaint1172d ago

The only thing you need to be clear on (and accept) is that you bought a vastly unpopular console.

pinkcrocodile751172d ago

@TheSaint

I bought a great console that works flawlessly it was an Xbox One. The UI is great, the features are top notch and the games look brilliant.

You bought a PS4, I'm sure it's lovely and you clear enjoy it.

So one brand sold more than another for a few months... SO!... What's the point in this thread?... There really isn't any point.

I hate the fact that this topic always becomes a d!ck measuring content between fans... Totally pointless.

I'm more concerned about the potential if not highly unlikely event of contracting the Ebola Virus.

If you want an actual d!ck measuring contest, that fine. But I'll win, I always do Hahahaha

DigitalRaptor1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

I think they are just tired of having to moderate your delusions, so wanted you to see it a second time, in order for you to be clear about PlayStation 4's position in the market in comparison to the Xbone's.

I'd say mission accomplished in that regard. Well done Sony!

Prime1571172d ago

@pinkcrocodile75

The saint said, "unpopular console." He did not say the console sucked. Popularity is simply an observation.

Also, he was poking that at truefan as truefan's hypocrisy and delusions know no bounds.

the sale are only what each respective console deserves

Deadpoolio1172d ago

I'm sure they'll be taking the video down after they get a sternly worded e-mail from Microsoft reminding Polygon that they were given $750,000 from Microsoft for a reason

TAURUS-5551172d ago

thank god i chose to buy a PS4 ¡¡¡¡¡ ¡¡¡

sony youre the best ¡¡¡¡¡

RIP xbox1

FanboyKilla1172d ago

@retro nice suck up for bubbles. Congrats to sony. Lmfao at the sony fan. This is good news to me or you as a gamer why? Im one of that 3to1. And if i turn on my ps4 today i would still be dissappinted like yesterday and the days before it. Hell mcky ds is gonna sell a billion hamburgers today, doesnt mean its the best hamburger.

Sooooo, i guess you havent fixed the prices on ps now yet or announced any upcoming games or updates to your system that improves the user exp not network stability issues and general bug fixes or anything that the playstation nation could benefit from? No? Soooo no news then? Holla

Indeed, to be honest I had both a XO & PS3 and Xbox was much more user friendly but it seems PS have turned that right around.

mrpsychoticstalker1172d ago

It doesn't matter. The Xbox is still the best console out there.

TyBREAKR1172d ago

I have to respectfully disagree.

SpinalRemains1381172d ago

Xbox One is an awesome console. Its just not as awesome as PS4.

The gamers have spoken.

BattleTorn1172d ago

hmm. cause I played all the multiplat launch titles on both systems...

and now because of that, my X1 isn't going to see anything but exclusives......

SilentNegotiator1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

Let's take a vote.

What's that? Ps4 3, Xbone 1? Guess Ps4 wins.

dantesparda1172d ago

@psycho
Except its not and the gamers have spoken, sorry.

Clarence1172d ago

Looks like the numbers say otherwise. The gamer have spoken. The gap is growing, and the PS4 will continue to dominate. Titanfall didn't help nor did a price drop. I don't see what else the xbone can do to catch up.

MysticStrummer1172d ago

"The Xbox is still the best console out there."

It's so good, the shelves refuse to let go.

greenlantern28141172d ago

Everyone's entitled to there opinion. Personally I disagree PS4 is the best

Last quarter SONY shipped probably 3 million PS4's and 500k PS3's.

Last quarter microsoft shipped probably 600k xbox one's and 500k x360's.

PS4 3 million
xbox one 600k

PS4 has shipped 5x more.

SONY is on fire!

Best selling this gen console: PS4 (close to 10 million)

Highest rated game this gen: THE LAST OF US REMASTERED (metacritic 95)

Most powerful console: PS4

doolin_dalton1172d ago

Interesting. So, instead of using OFFICIAL numbers and the ratio that those represent, you MAKE UP your own numbers to try to make your favorite console look better.

Isn't that what people complain about VGChartz doing? Based on your agree/disagree ratio, making up fake numbers seems perfectly acceptable around here.

Also, Metacritic now matters? I'll remember that for future discussions.

skoorydook1172d ago

He is clearly being an idiot making up fake numbers but lets be honest metacritic has been waved about like a badge of honour by Xbox fanboys.

Freeball1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

Yes Metacritic matters whether you agree with it or not. Publisher contracts with developers base performance bonuses on Metacritic scores, so I would say it's a pretty important measure.

mikel10151172d ago

Great now give me a high rated game I will actually need a PS4 to play

MysticStrummer1172d ago

It already has those, so you must not want one.

chrismichaels041171d ago

PS4 already has high rated AAA games including: The Last of Us Remastered (95), Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn (87), MLB14 The Show (83) and Infamous Second Son (80).

PS4 already has high rated indies games including: Towerfall Ascension (87), Rogue Legacy (86), The Swapper (86), Resogun (84) and Transistor (83).

You need to come up with a better excuse than that.

Jaqen_Hghar1172d ago

PS3 has been outselling 360 since it launched so a man doesn't think 360 equalled it now

TheDrunkenJester1172d ago

Yet Titanfall for X1 is still outselling Infamous: SS... Over 2mil for Titanfall and about 1.45mil for SS, how could Titanfall sell over 2 million on xbox one if there is only 600k xbox ones sold by your numbers?

DigitalRaptor1172d ago

Another LIAR.

Those Titanfall numbers you post are not substantiated anywhere. If they were, both MS and EA would be behind those numbers loud & proud. But… nope.

MysticStrummer1172d ago

You need to learn to read, Jester. That 600k was 1st quarter 2014. XB1 sold about 3 million in 2013, then sales fell off a cliff. The problem with Titanfall, from MS's perspective, was that it didn't sell systems like they hoped. People who already had the system bought the game.

greenlantern28141172d ago

That 2 million copies of TF on XB1 would be a great achievement I wonder why neither MS,or EA have said anything about it.
And that is a one game to one game comparison
However EA, Ubisoft, and Activision have all stated their games sell better on PS4. Which is a no brainer when you think about it.

chrismichaels041171d ago (Edited 1171d ago )

@TheDrunkenJester - Please show us official sales numbers from either MS or EA about Titanfall Xbox One sales....because neither company has been very vocal about it. In fact, anytime they have talked about Titanfall sales, they have always combined the sales numbers of Titanfall on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Meanwhile, xbox fans are quick to compare the numbers of Titanfall on 3 systems to Infamous on just the PS4.

Sy_Wolf1172d ago

I don't think anyone could have predicted how insanely fast the PS4 would sell. Good for Sony. Hope Microsoft starts selling more units, a monopoly in any industry is never a good thing.

mmc-0071172d ago

*looks at PS2 era... reads your comment again*

doolin_dalton1172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

The PS2 monopoly caused Sony to become super arrogant. They thought they could do whatever they wanted with PS3 because of the success of PS2.

Fortunately, consumers revolted and forced Sony to change. Plus, Sony's arrogance after their PS2 monopoly caused them to lose their iron grip on the console business as people turned to Xbox 360 and Wii.

He's right. A monopoly is never a good thing.

mmc-0071172d ago (Edited 1172d ago )

that's not even the point.. "during" the PS2 life cycle I didn't even notice any arrogance from sony, this so called arrogance was only during the start of the PS3's gen (which is where you are missing the point).
So by that logic we should be worried about the PS5..
