PlayStation Experience Signals Bright Future For Sony

Hardcore Gamer: It may not have seemed like it in real-time, but with just a little bit of hindsight, it’s clear that this was one of the biggest weekends Sony has had in ages.

Honestly, this whole weekend made me excited for PS4 in ways I haven't been since E3 2013. I'm proud to own a PS4.

Walkingliving1020d ago

You're very hard to read IMO. I thought you were a troll.

ValKilmer1020d ago

Even though I'm don't agree with some of their recent moves (such as their handling of the 20th Anniversary PS4), the ones they got right overshadow what they got wrong.

It was a great weekend overall and it's hard to be mad at them when they're trying to give us what we want.

Took my buddy who is a pc gamer. He is converted after this weekend lol. Was an awesome event!!!

what is you PSN ID

Muzikguy1020d ago

I'm yet to watch the PSX. Maybe tomorrow sometime. I agree though, according to what I'm reading, that it was a great weekend for Playstation fans :)

Omegasyde1020d ago

I went and it was awesome. Well well well organized.

Sparkticle1020d ago

I have my PS4 all ready and set up for games to come, but I'll be honest, I'm underwhelmed with the variety and amount of exclusives coming to the console.

I don't know about everyone else, but I mainly use my PC to play all the third party games. They often come a lot cheaper on PC, too.

So really, that means I only own a PS4 for the exclusive games, which, quite frankly, I'm not that excited about.

Getting hate on N4G for saying anything slightly negative about Sony is a common, so I don't really care how much sh*t I get for this, but...

Metal Gear Solid V - lots of content, but all in all doesn't introduce many new things to the third person shooter genre. The multiplayer looks fun, though...and I do like the idea of building your base ground up.

Batman: Arkham Knight - yet another Arkham game...I'll play it when it comes around, but I'm not utterly hyped for it or anything.

Uncharted 4 - basically Uncharted 3 with pretty facial expressions.

The Order 1886 - linear third person shooter, and so far, no new exciting mechanics.

Bloodborne - a little more excited about these than the others, but generally seems like Dark Souls 2 with more gore and emphasis on horror.

Human Element - I don't think I can get excited about any more zombie survival games.

Final Fantasy VII - ...really?

Adrift - actually something original, and looks pretty hype. Only thing that bothers me is how much they will be able to do with such a setting. I hope it won't be yet another cinematic experience.

No Man's Sky - really hyped. Let's hope nothing goes wrong with this game.

So, overall....2 games I'm actually hyped up about...and both from smaller studios. I'd think that by now I'd have a solid library on my PS4, but nope.

"Uncharted 4 - basically Uncharted 3 with pretty facial expressions."

You're trolling.

If you don't like gaming just quit and stop hating everything.

EDIT:

@Sparkticle: With respect to your answer to @LordMaim, your comment seems to come from the troll handbook, it's something like this:

1. Start saying you own the product you want to troll
2. Say you don't use it too much
3. Complain about getting hate when you troll the product
4. Start trolling

Sparkticle1020d ago (Edited 1020d ago )

If you could provide me with a list of things you saw that changed, then you're more welcome to tell me.

I honestly am not trolling in any way, I'm just expressing my opinion, and my opinion is that I'm underwhelmed by the exclusives released and coming out on the PS4.

Being an owner of 3 gaming systems, I have to look and compare which I'm excited for.

Also, I didn't "hate everything", I did write a few examples of games I'm excited about.

The name of the article is "PlayStation Experience Signals a Bright Future for Sony", and I'm just writing that I disagree with what's said above.

EDIT: If believing that I'm trolling makes you happy and if it makes you believe that there is nobody in this world who could possibly dislike something you would defend any day of the week, then that's your choice. Go ahead, mate.

Sparkticle1020d ago

I'm guessing you don't believe I own the product, which is fine by me. Just shows how narrow-minded you and everyone else on this site are.

DanteVFenris6661020d ago

@spark

Yea I will, okay so just from a small demo I saw
-items no uncharted series has had unlock able items such as rope and that pick for climbing.
-obvious graphics improvments.
-level design improvment makeing it feel a lot more open
-stealt improved, can hide in tall grass
-animations are better than anything I've seen
-AI improvment(which it had to be for the now more open environment they need to traverse)
-there's still a lot more to come

LordMaim1020d ago

You spent an awful long time typing out a list of things that you want to downplay. Seems like you have another agenda.

Sparkticle1020d ago

Like I said, whenever you type something remotely negative about Sony on N4G, you instantly get sh*t for it. It's so predictable.

I have some spare time, and I thought that I would express my opinion.

If you hadn't noticed, I did list quite a few things I did like, for example Adrift and No Man's Sky.

LordMaim1020d ago

Two things is "Quite a few things"? And it just so happens that these things you will be playing on your PC instead? I understand that you like Nintendo, that's fine. It just seems like a disproportionate response.

Bathyj1020d ago

So youre basically bored with anything that doesnt create a new genre? All sequels and established franchises are out for you then.

You can take any game and just write it off as game X with new spaceships or whatever if you only want to look at the surface and not dig any deeper. I mean Heavy Rain is just Dragons Lair with Melodrama right?

I can remember in the mid to late 90's people were still calling every single FPS a Doom Clone. If we had gone on with that sort of blase' mindset we never would have had Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Halo, Halflife etc etc.

I'm not hating on you, Im just pointing out you sound really jaded and too hard to impress. Really original games dont come out that often, maybe a couple every generation.

If youre only going to play that, you wont be playing much at all, and you'll miss out on a lot of great games, which are usually refinements of what came before it. Halflife 2 didnt just happen, it took Halflife 1 to come out first and then they built on that.

Maybe youve just outgrown gaming and its not for you anymore.

Sparkticle1020d ago (Edited 1020d ago )

Whilst you do hold a point, you're wrong. I do enjoy sequels. Thing is, Uncharted overall is dull to me. I'll make sure to play this new one, but so far, what I've seen doesn't excite me.

Same goes to The Order -- so many "cinema feel" experiences are thrown out there today, that it really gets tiresome seeing them.

In this age of gaming there really is nothing that I can think up that would "create" a new genre. Everything has to start from basic conventions. Which is exactly how it's supposed to be! Your game is supposed to be built from the basics, adding on interesting features. That's why Shadow of Mordor was exciting. Despite literally being an Arkham crossover with Assassins Creed, it introduced exciting mechanics that kept the game interesting.

Pumping out sequels every year of the same thing over and over really gets annoying, and it kills my hype straight away. Arkham Knight would have been a LOT more exciting, if I hadn't already received my Arkham fix for the year. Bloodborne would have been a lot more exciting if they hadn't released Dark Souls 2 and then announced Dark Souls 2 remastered...

This generation so far is really underwhelming aside from the PC front and the Wii U front. I'm not really familiar with Xbox One at the moment.

If I really was worn out with sequels, then why would I be excited for the new Zelda game? Why would I be excited for Mortal Kombat X? Why was I excited for the new Smash Bros?

Also, you brought up Heavy Rain. See, Beyond Two Souls NEVER excited me, but funnily enough, I'm very much looking forward to Until Dawn. It experiments with something new and exciting.

You're right, I'm not easy to impress, but it gets tedious when I see everybody so hyped about something like Uncharted 4. Why are we so hyped about it? What did they show that actually made us go "wow"? The graphics? Like I said, the graphics look good, but they're not something we haven't seen before. They seem to really get the facial expressions right, but other than that, graphics don't really matter much.

You don't need to tell me you're not insulting me, either. I'm not one to straight away go "oh, you're an a**hole!", but I most definitely see a lot of bias here on this site, and me expressing my honest opinion on this thread and instantly being called a troll sort of proves that.

Bathyj1020d ago

Well just so you know, setting yourself up to be a martyr with the whole watch how many disagrees I get now for my opinion only serves to become a self for-filling prophecy. Youre inviting disagrees, practically daring people. I'm not saying its right. I'm just saying it is what it is.

Just for the record, while I like good graphics, it doesnt take very much playtime before they stop impressing. We get acclimatised very quickly. I'm more excited for Uncharted about the gameplay.

The AI looked fantastic. The action was very free flowing and the player had to keep adapting and think on his feet. I love the stealth mechanics and I hope the new moves with the grapple takedowns are well utilized.

The gameplay looked very exciting to me, and I cant wait to see what sort of set pieces they come up with because they always wow us.

dacuca1020d ago

I have my Wii U all ready and set up for games to come, but I'll be honest, I'm underwhelmed with the variety and amount of games coming to the console.

I don't know about everyone else, but I mainly use my PC to play all the third party games. They often come a lot cheaper on PC, too.

So really, that means I only own a Wii U for the exclusive games, which, quite frankly, I'm not that excited about.

Getting hate on N4G for saying anything slightly negative about Nintendo is a common, so I don't really care how much sh*t I get for this, but...

Zelda: Again? They've been releasing this game for 20 years

Mario Maker: Now you can MAKE the same mario game you have been playing for 20 years.

Xenoblade Chronicles X - really hyped. Let's hope nothing goes wrong with this game.

So, overall....1 game I'm actually hyped up about... I'd think that by now I'd have a solid library on my Wii U, but nope.

But it signals a death sentence for PS1 classics on PS4.

lonelyplayer1020d ago

And the best of all is that we already know they have much more that's not announced yet :)
