The End Of A Generation – How Sony Is Getting It So Right

''Gamescom has allowed Sony to answer critics who thought the E3 showing was a little flat. I believe that they’ve done that in the best way possible – by addressing concerns, giving us a little surprise and expanding on strategies that will ensure the outgoing home console generation, and the changing market for portable game consumption, generates revenue for the coming years of investment in that much anticipated new hardware.''

sony will be ending ps3 cycle with very good support and they need to continue to push some of their ELITE studios to develop some unique, original games on the psvita and at the same time getting ready for the imminent ps4 launch line up (it needs to be the best in playstation history) , what does Gaikai acquisition mean for us ( playstation fans) ? they did good when it comes to new IPs this generation and in my eyes they are doing it again on the vita but i want more and im sure i will get those new original games on both consoles ( psvita and ps4 ) but next gen will be starting with WiiU and ZombiU for me. its up to Nintendo to get me back to my gaming roots now.

well, they need to work on starts and momentum. they did good with the PSV, but dropped the ball on maintaining momentum...

the PS4 needs a big launch line-up and a continuous stream of releases every week, whether 1st party or 3rd party and cross app chat for SEN...

Microsoft and Nintendo are ending their generations with a wimper, Sony didn't really have to do much because they basically won by default.

You can't just line up a Halo game as your one core exclusive and be like "welp we're done here", sorry but I cancelled my Live account awhile ago and moved on. And no I'm not just ragging on Microsoft, I won't be wasting my time on Sony's God of War rehashes either. I will however be checking out most of Sony's new IP (The Last of Us could be a generation defining game) because new IP are what keep me interested in gaming.

I don't even know what Nintendo is doing, I guess Skyward Sword was Wii's swan song.

When you have a game as big as halo on your side you can do pretty much what you want. I'll tell you this now, sony wish they had halo believe you me because they have nothing to match it. Say what you will but its your loss not mine.
I'm no microsoft fanboy I have ps3 aswell as 360 but it just pisses me off when people/gamers allways have to bring up halo to make there point about something, at the end of the day we all love gaming no matter what system its on.
Just have some respect for halo its a great game and xbox live as been a good online service there's no doubt in that.

Gran Turismo says hi if its sales you are talking about.

NeoTribe2782d ago

dude trust me, halo is not as appealing as it was when it was actually worth playin. If I wanted to play it I would go buy a 360. I'm a big boy and can buy things I want, and I sure as hell don't see a point in buying xbox to play a fps. Microsoft also wish they had uncharted and soon to be the last of us. See how that works both ways? love how u start ur comment off trollin and than try and end it acting like ur a neutral gamer. get back under ur bridge.

Halo IS a great game. It may not be for everybody, but I don't think there are many that believe that Halo, as a whole, sucks.

What MD is saying, and I agree, is that you can't just release Halo and call it a day... but that's exactly what Microsoft is doing.

Sure, they've got a couple of other IPs in the pipeline, including new stuff like Ascend: New Gods. But Ascend is the only thing not named Halo that's aimed at the core, and you can't exactly go to a store and buy it.

I'm no troll.
Trouble is halo will be around for a long time and you'll end up playing it.
What's this about a neutral, you no nothing.
You mention uncharted, I must say its a great game but its never going to get the press media coverage that halo has had and I don't no why because it deserves as much as halo.
