Sony's Press Conference Did Not Impress Me

Chris writes... "Flat out, I was not impressed. Before you get that lynching rope ready, let me explain. I was not impressed by the games. Pulling purely numbers, Sony showed off one exclusive new game that we had never seen or had confirmed, The Order: 1886. On the flip side, Microsoft showed off eight brand new exclusive games; Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, Sunset Overdrive, D4, Project Spark, Crimson Dragon, Below, Titanfall, and whatever Black Tusk is working on. You do not have to count that last one if you do not want to, but it only brings the total new games down by one."

In other news, my house was demolished by a massive hurricane in Florida and I was like "Have you SEEN the Eye of Jupiter? I'm simply not impressed, hurricane. Step your game up."

Lovable1979d ago

dafuq? lol

Though MS really showed tons of exclusive considering they didn't show nothing on their first conference.

What's the use of all those games if there are insane restrictions on the console?

SeanScythe1979d ago

Sony showed exclusives just like MS and they showed Multiplats just like MS. Sony announced the PS4 in Feb and with it they showed games for it. So lets see, PS3/PS4 Exclusives
Killzone: Shadow Fall
Infamous: 2nd Son
Drive Club
Oddworld: New n' Tasty
War Thunder
Blacklight: Retribution
DC Universe Online
Don't Starve
Mercenary Kings
PlanetSide 2
Deep Down
Octodad: Deadliest Catch
The Order: 1886
The Last of Us
Beyond Two Souls

Did you just combined 2 plattforms?

Did you just included PC games as well? (Something I was killed for on N4G back in the days with Left 4 Dead or Splinter Cell Conviction)

Did you just mentioned GT6 twice?

shoddy1979d ago

The price and the no restrictions blow me out of my seat and on to the floor laughing.

Drekken1979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

DiRtY - Why not combine two platforms? Just because one of the companies have completely forgot about their 80 million fans that own their current generation console doesn't mean the other company who is arguably releasing the best games yet on their console doesn't get to bask in the glory.

Lets not try to say Sony doesn't bring the exclusives and the most games. I didn't see anything special coming for the 360. Abandonment. The 360 was said to have a 10 year lifespan and I just don't see the microsoft support. **AND THAT IS WHY the PS3 is killing the competition in sales.

If you move aside the freedom console.

Sony's presser was underwhelming.

Edit: @Gamer Yeah if you continue to bring that up. How bout we talk about the rest of the conference.

Like I said beside the freedom console Sony's presser was relatively boring unless anyone can say otherwise?

EDIT 2: @Gamer well your inability to stay on topic that's related to the article proves Sony's presser was underwhelming. You simply can't stay on topic so that makes my point right, it was underwhelming in regards of reveals.

@Kneon Oh you mean like how DCUO, Warframe, Planetside 2, Warthinder, Blacklight retribution. Is all available on PC? Right they're exclusive alright.

Its ok to list games that are available on PC and pass them off as Sony exclusive but its not ok for MS games.

SexyGamerDude1979d ago

If you move aside the games.

Microsoft's console is the most anti consumer product you will ever see.

Lovable1979d ago

Not by a long shot. Well actually it depends lol.

FF 15 and KH3 announcement along is more than enough to destroy MS conference. Then you found out it's multiplat lol then yeah

MasterCornholio1979d ago

I wouldn't be worried about games with the PS4 though because Sony has an extremely good track record of providing their consumers with many titles to play.

Motorola RAZR i

SexyGamerDude1979d ago

And like I said Microsoft's product is anti consumer unless anyone can prove otherwise.

kneon1979d ago

Yup, the PS4 game line up is lame, I only found 11 games to pre-order yesterday :)

/s of course

Snickelsox1979d ago

I am glad we agree. It's not that the press conference was bad, but they have had much, much better. If they had not revealed the price and DRM plans this would have gone down as one of the most boring Sony conferences ever.

nthstew1979d ago

the conference did encourage me to buy PS4 at day 1..

stuntman_mike1979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

I was gonna buy a PS4 way before E3 and all this bullshit happened. the price and the games just sweetened the deal.

Cuzzo631979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

Okay, okay.... yea M$ showed some good games. More original games for once I might add... But what does all this prove? Not much considering all the restrictions. By the way, does this mean Sony wont have any exclusives or original titles? NO! There is a bigger issue at hand and its not on Sony's court. I will say Titanfall looks badass, props to them for the timed exclusive. But all fanboyish ish to the side, considering all the 1st party studios Sony has and the jump they put on Micro do we really just count sony out just cuz Micro came with their big guns.... They had to. They had no choice. DO YOU THINK THATS ALL SONY HAD IN THE TANK. LOL... Trust they only gave us wat they wanted as of now. Just look at the past few months, they had us all fooled with the Drm, the ram, and the initial reveal. I coulda sworn I saw dozens of Sony wont announce first articles. HELL Sony went as far as to keep quiet on it and let the media speculate for them. Look how that turned out. Im sure all of their studios got good shit cooking. Just waiting on the chief to give the word... Slaughter!!!

And might I add. Sony said this will be their biggest launch line up in like forever. Excluding multiplats they know wat their doin...

We know there will be games. Anyone with eyes and have paid attention for the last decade knows sony has tons of studios to make exclusives. And we know multiplatforms are a given. MS had to show more games because they have really fallen off in terms of providing exclusive experiences you can only get on a microsoft platform.

What sony sold was ideology. Their philosophies and open defiance of anti-consumerist policies, are bigger than any one game. Sure Titanfall blew me away, but sony's respect for as a consumer, renewed my faith in gaming at a time when I thought it was on the brink of tipping completely.

kneon1979d ago

Sony showed plenty of games as well, in fact they showed more than Microsoft. The only problem was that most of the big exclusives were already announced earlier so there were few surprises.

Pintheshadows1979d ago

I wish they'd shown a race fromDriveclub, that infamous, Infamous Second Son gameplay and the new KZSF footage showing how open it is. Then they would have outright flattened E3.

Majin-vegeta1979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

Whats the point of these games?If it comes at the cost of your privacy,ability to trade games with friends(MORE THAN ONCE) etc...

@Mike apparently not -sigh-

Mikelarry1979d ago

it amazes me how quick people are willing to give up thier consumer rights just to play some games they have only seen demoed. have none of them learnt anything from the aliens fiasco

stuntman_mike1979d ago

I know absolutely crazy it's not about brand loyalty it's about your rights as a consumer and Microsoft try to quash them. also most of XB1's games were third party exclusives. they will probably come to the other consoles down the line anyway.

komp1979d ago

hiphopgamer is that you?

ger23961979d ago

As far as games go Microsoft did show quite a few new ips. I expect Sony to unveil more before launch.

stuntman_mike1979d ago

we still haven't seen over half of what their internal studios are doing. so there are loads more stuff to come.

Pintheshadows1979d ago

Well, they stated every dev they have is working on PS4 titles and we have seen 5 I think so that is (if i'm right) 35 to go.
