PlayStation shows no sign of relinquishing its crown when it comes to TV budgets — Sony’s console brand accounted for over 43 percent of all industry spend in January.
and the Playstation will remain king this one , next one, and next one, and so on, Playstation 5 is coming!!, the competition can start crying now, oh they start it that since years ago. :D
Sure glad PlayStation is the market leader. Imagine an industry where the best AAA games are dominated by kiddie cartoon mascots that jumps all over the place in a jumping simulator.
Dominated ok... still like a few of those types of games though...variety is where its at.
You must not have the capacity to experience fun if you cannot enjoy the Mario games. I am as big a Playstation fan as you could wish to meet, but that doesn't stop me from devouring many of the Nintendo exclusives when they come along. Mario Odyssey really is something special in my opinion, I don't know how Nintendo do it, but this game just made me smile the whole way through.
As long as PlayStation remains the place where quality no bullshit SP games are made or at least SP games with an MP part that doesn't affect the former's quality they can count me in. Now if being first is what allows Sony to keep producing these games then so be it.
@Lovespuds You know what fortunately my anti establishment attitude made me play and enjoy the most obscure games Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo ripped off and put in their games. Knowing the truth is the best fun and joy one can ever have. I am glad I played Sideways on PS3 before SMO came out.
@LoveSpuds, although I agree with you about mario games and the switch has a few great games, I wanted to add that I think the new mario games was average at best. I hated the fact the two player option was a cheap add on afterthought. Me and my girl have always played mario games together but this one just sucked in that regard. Its why I didnt like galaxy to. Also Id love a yoshi game that was graphically like mario and not some damn yarn. Kudos to the new mario party, nice to see that have a good one. Its the best since gamecube imo.
Sony learned their lesson from last gen, when they thought they could ride the coat tails of the PS2's success. As they say, "you have to spend money to make money," in this regard Sony learned from Microsoft who had a huge advertising and marketing spend last gen, practically every multiplatform title last gen was advertised by MS. This is why competition is good.
With a 600 dollar price tag and a year later I say ps3 did damn good, not as good as ps1, ps2, and ps4 but alot of figures till have them ahead of x360.
It will be even harder to compete with Sony in the next generation, they will come with full power and crush everything
They spend more on ads because they have more people to cater to. And more games obviously.
Indeed it does.
Playstation has been king since they threw their hat into the ring with the first playstation. I believe they will stay on top. They have some of the best first party games and fantastic thrd party support and third party exclusives. They also have done great on the indie level to. Im a really big fan of physical game releases, and they were the first to allow small print runs so indies could get their games released physically, ala limited run games, special reserves games, strictly limited games, and a slew of more small publishers doing a good job getting us physical releases.
Long Live Sony Playstation !!! Oh king live forever!
