Dear Sony: Make The PS4 With Your Fans In Mind

Ben Dutka at psxextreme writes: Ever since I heard Sony was working on the next PlayStation, I've been a little concerned about the project.

While I always love all these great advances in technology and artistry, and I'm a huge proponent of titles like Heavy Rain and L.A. Noire, many of the new crazes this generation just haven't done it for me...and that includes digital distribution, multiplayer and motion sensing. I mentioned this before but now I'm appealing to Sony- (Culture, Next-Gen, Sony)

Maybe it's just me, but I disagree with a lot of what you said. I actually enjoy the PS Move, though I don't use it often, but it is fun when I want to break it out. It certainly gets a lot more use than my Kinect does.

As for your comment about digital distribution, I'd honestly prefer to never have to worry about physical media ever again. There's no discs to scratch, no discs to change, and if something happens to the hard drive, it's tied to your store account so you can just download it again. To me, that's 100% win.

I do hope when the PS4 is developed they think about the fans, but just remember that not everyone feels the way you do.

On the other hand I do agree with most of what he has said. I like having a shelf full of games. Or if I choose, the ability to sell/trade those games. I also rent a large number which wouldn't be possible with digital.
I hate motion controls and even on Wii use a GC controller where possible.
Although I do a lot of online gaming which he doesn't.

Make PS4 with devs in mind. If devs love it then the great games will flow :)
