This is a very odd article. It poses a question (see title) talks about what the last generation had and what this generation has, then proceeds to ask its readers on what they should do. Why post the question if your not going to attempt to answer it.

Anyway. The jump last generation was quite huge. Hence we got big titles fairly early on. It is going to take longer. It doesn't mean it needs saving

This is the first year for two of the consoles this generation. Like with any generation the best is yet to come and people are writing it all off way too quickly.

i have got to agree. last gen i never got a next gen console early on and i remember gamers and gaming media complaining about no games to play especially with the ps3 that had only motostorm and i think resistance in its first year of release.

OT: i had a thought today about sony and psnow. not sure if sony understands how important psnow is. with mobile becoming really powerful and claiming "console quality experience" sony could be ahead of the curve by being the first to that provides ps1,2,3,4 games to be able to be played on such devices thus stealing back some of the gamers they have lost to the ipads and andriod devices. obviously this would only be possible once mobile graphics does allow these complex games to be played on them. this approach in my opinion could keep their console and eco system relevant for quite awhile

They know, publishers clearly don't yet-hence the pricing of everything but the 7 day rentals... but it'll change with time im sure.

I didn't know the ps4 needed saving.

@johndoe

It does, from opinion pieces like this.

IMO I think this is the first time a lot of people complaining have been early adopters to the new generation of consoles, because for old time gamers this is nothing new, and no big deal. WII U sales are improving, XB1 started off better than 360, and PS4 has been selling great since it's release. No saving needed.

geddesmond1112d ago

They need to stop development on last gen, focus all resources on new gen and bring us games faster. The more choice people have to play on a consol, the more sales they will get.

Why did nintendo fail so much this gen. Weak hardware, not enough games, a lot of empty promises.

Why is MS falling so behind Sony. Because after last gen people now know Sony can deliver games from all their first party studios compared to MS and the more power isn't helping much either with Multiplats looking better for Sony which went in MS favor last gen.

With 8.7 mil PS4s sold I think Sonys do very well considering there isn't a big selection of games out yet. But all that will change in the next 6 months

All the consoles in existence need saving now ?

What kind of religion is this? lol

iceman061112d ago

The religion is that of Hate. It's practiced worldwide by a new, more vocal group of entitled, ADHD generation gamers. LOL Seriously, I understand the mentality. But, I don't understand the need for them to constantly complain about any and everything just for the sake of having something to complain about. I get valid criticism but the rest is just having to have something to say.

What Can Sony, Microsoft And Nintendo Do To Save Their Consoles? hire more talents. I noticed most devs can't handle making games in a timely manner for the game engines of today. Its seem as though that the more RAM Devs work with, the crappier the games get; or the more time they have to spend producing their games.

Personally speaking, I think most devs just has to own up to themselves on what they can't or can handle. Open world doesn't cut it either. We need more variety in play mechanics. game engine's game play development structure are too repetitive from one game level to the next.

Nintendo has the right idea...They try to make every level different in play mechanic but the problems is they can do it in fast enough. They need to hire more talents as well.

smoking the good delusional stuff eh?

Sure thing dude. Care to join me?

But on the real though, Give it some time and you'll see for yourself.

Whirlwind_Fanfare_081113d ago

I hope this article don't get approved. Makes no sense at all!
they don't need to do anything. Sony, nintendo, and microsoft are doing just fine.
This sounds like somebody looking for hits.

Amorist891113d ago

Never knew any of them needed saving :/ must be flame bait.

Moe-Gunz1112d ago

That's what I'm saying. Even with X1 not doing as well as Sony with sales it's still doing well. Nothing needs saving. This is a joke of an article.

CorndogBurglar1113d ago

So this guy thinks that because PSNow could use some work that the whole PS4 needs "saving"? What logic is that?

Spotie1112d ago

Don't go expecting logic out of whatculture. Ain't gonna happen.
