Spong: "We've all seen the Xbox One reveal or heard or read about it from our trusted news sources. How it went depends on your view of converging entertainment media. It's the aftermath that I'm concerned with here."
ummm...Something to crush?
It means plenty on space on TV shelve for PS4.
Competition, plain and simple. If you dont take competitors seriously, they could overrun you. Sony is mature enough to know that markets change and evolve constantly. Look at Nintendo and the Wii, they where completely disregarded by MS and Sony.
Bump in the road?
It means the PS4 is even more appealing than it already was. I want a game console with extra features more than I want a set-top box that play games with a camera always on.
It means Sony wins, horrid just horrid reveal.
XB1 means absolute win for Sony. More than 130 million PS4s to be sold in 2020. Period.
To turn on my PS4 if you know what i mean*
It means that there is going to be a crazy long line to buy the PS4.
I was looking forward to getting my hands on a PS4 this year. With what has happened this week can you imagine how long we may have to wait? It could be sold out for a solid 6 months!! Damn MS...
It means Sony better start building PS4s now so I can get one at launch!
That they have nothing to worry about...
I have a 360 but there's noway I'm getting an xbox 1. Its obvious MS don't care about the rest of the world. PS4 it is for me,its a no brainer! Everygamer I know feels the same
Since Microsoft is "blocking" used games so to speak, sadly i expect publishers (EA comes to mind...) to "block" their used games on Sony's console as well, because Sony is letting the publishers choose whether or not to do so. That would make sense as EA just ditched their online pass thing.
I see them doing this, as they stopped implementing online passes. Of coarse, they could then make exclusive day-1 DLC only available for new purchases. I am sure Capcom will continue with its Disk Locked content, them greedy bastards.
Personally if I see a publisher trying to block used game sales they will lose any and all business that I may have put their way even if they put out the singluarly most awsome game ever.
It means that everyone will now see the light, walk down the tunnel and find that it wasn't heaven at the end... but kaz standing at the pedestal wisely sharing his wisdom on how glorifying the ps4 really is!!! LET US ALL COME TOGETHER AND WORSHIP THE ONE TRUE GAMING GOD WE HAVE COME TO KNOW AND LOVE. TO SONY...AND MICHEAL... Proud founder of the Sonynism religion :)
It means SHIT to me I'm sure it means SHIT to SONY.
Much needed competition of course, and if Microsofts one-a-day online policy & cloud/DRM thing protects them from piracy and Sony makes one mistake and hackers blow the system wide open - a greater threat now they went from Cell to x86 - it will be serious competition. Competition is usually good for gamers.
it means crap sony got this already
I hope all this negativity with Microsoft do not go to Sony's head. Do not stay complacent & stay the course with what Sony originally has planned. Have it in Sony's mind ignore all the news about the Xbox1 cause things can change really fast this day & age. Even the questions about used games & always online Sony has for the most part addressed these issues pretty quickly while Microsoft has sidestepped that. Sony has to stay on what they have planned with the PS4 cause we have seen that with casuals they will forget about you while the hardcore gamer will always return if you give them what they want. So far Sony has done just.
