Today on Pashcast Episode #6 (Speedrun 1), Pashford theorizes that Microsoft may have some tricks up their sleeve for Gamecom that should have Sony worried.
I'm very happy to see what Microsoft's got coming but we really need to stop with these flamebait articles.
Read my mind. They ain't getting my clicks
Agreed. And its common sense sony should expect its rivals to have products of their own. Thats how the console business works.
Actually this is exactly how the console business should be. Every time one ups the other, the latter should respond in a similar fashion, driving prices down and service quality up which ultimately benefit us, the gamers. So I say bring it on MS!
@The infected well said. These articles are and have been getting ridiculous.
@ The_Infected Bubble up for you and well said, its nice to see someone who isnt an argumentative fanboy on here. PS is outselling xbox and made this generation very competitive which is better for consumers.
Well said. Ive seen a few interesting submissions not being approved but 'contributors' prefer focusing on fanboy wars.
They shouldn't be afraid. Sony have the largest presence there.
The rule of thumb is, if the article's title is a question, it's probably clickbait.
* It's always the articles with the obvious dumb question that send off a huge RED FLAG.... This is middle school level "journalism" at best. Microsoft & Sony & even Nintendo are all doing fine. It's great they all have their own plans and ideas. This gen would be boring if everything was the same.
By your logic an article titled 'Should Pepsico be afraid of The Coca Cola Company's new beverage?' would be purely flamebait rather than the reasonable economic and cultural question that it would be.
Hopefully! Competition is good!
sony won't be afraid. they will however be paying very close attention to see what they have to show.
Sony has nothing to worry about since they have a stranglehold on the European market. Every past PS console has become the best selling console in Europe of its generation. No single conference Microsoft has will change that. And are people forgetting that Sony will have their own European conference at Paris Game Week, in addition to their other conferences at TGS and PSX later in the year? Or that third parties will still have PS4 content to reveal at GamesCom? Sony still has plenty of bombshells of their own to counter Microsoft.
80 percent of market share in Europe I don't see anything make them worry
WELL, you get worry when you have things.......because then you don't wanna lose them......soooo i think they should be worry and if they aren't then, after the MS conference they will be.
alb1889: Contrary to all the fanboys, Sony should be very aware of MS. That is how MS beat them last generation, and if it wasn't for the strong Playstation brand thanks to total domination in the previous two generations, I'm not sure PS would have recovered. A lot of people think "afraid" signifies weakness, but in general we do better when we have a little fear in us. It should be seen as a good thing. MS is on a warpath in Europe now and their morale is high, and they have the content to show for it as well. Sony can't change much on what they have lined up, those are pretty much cast in stone, but they can respond with by moving up announcements of things further out. I'm hoping for a great show from Sony in Paris!
Sony will have plenty of time to counter. First with ParisCom, then TGS and then PSX. None of which MS will be attending.
As long as they keep there fan base happy is all that matters.
same question asked before E3 earlier this year. Nobody should be afraid. Competition is pointless
They shouldn't be complacent, but of course they shouldn't be afraid.
yes, they should be very afraid. they should aswell get the flaming torches and pitch forks ready just in case microsoft do some black magic to try to win europe, and sony accuse them of witchcraft cause thats the only way i see for them to really put the pressure on sony for europe
@ this point MS is not worried about Sony either. Their strategy is getting the best overall experience out there with Windows 10, Xbox Live, Triple AAA games, VR Oculus, Valve and [email protected] If Windows Build in January, GDC, E3, China Joy, Gamescom, X10 Canada event, plus whatever event for this fall's launch titles not an indication then I don't know what is. Keep up the good work MS. I rather walk away from this generation with gamers knowing you gave us what we wanted and what we all know your capable of doing. Can't wait for Gamescom.
I want what you're smoking.
Why would Sony be scared, because of Crackdown. That game was garbage then and it will be garbage now. Scalebound and Quantum Break look promising but neither will make Sony flinch. Plus Sony has the largest presence at Gamescom, stupid article.
What are Microsoft showing off 30 JRPGs? No? Yeah Sonys got that genre on lockdown
Good job I bought an xbox then, never played a jrpg and never will.
And there is the difference in a nutshell. Hardcore Xbox fan in full view.
I'm predominantly a PC gamer, but I own a PS4 and DO NOT own an XB1, and I think JRPGs suck for the most part. (Aside from a couple exceptions)
Why should Sony be worried? In europe the ps4 is outselling the x-box one in every country. Only Fanboys think that the gamescom will change that drastically.
Not another one of these articles. I don't remember these articles when Microsoft never attended Gamescom. Sony has 3 more shows this year. Paris in October is a good idea for Sony. Give everyone a reminder of the titles just before the start of the Christmas run. The games will be fresh in peoples minds compared to Microsoft which will be 3 months to fade.
here we go,they starting stuff up again
Sony won't be worried. The same way that ms won't be afraid of the Tokyo game show. Since they are not attending that.
I just watched the last part of the XB1 conference. After watching it my first thought was it is a good time to be a PC gamer. Other than Crackdown noting really made me think O am glad I own a XB1. Halo Wars 2 I am very happy about as I enjoyed the first one on 360. So this will be a must buy for my PC (K&B).
No. Next question.
Sony has nothing to fear from M$. The PS4 hasn't even had a price drop yet.
