You should of said. Don't forget to bring a towel. ^~^

MWong2268d ago

Yea, but the way he says "big black box ready to be filled with their creative juices" it sounds soo pornstarish.

I hope developers keep coming with more and more creativity for the PS4. It will be my first next-gen console, might be my only next-gen platform.

Creative Juices are not nasty, they are necessary. lol

Looks like Shinji is stating that hardware is not as important as everyone else would want us to believe.

"Actually, I haven't fully grasped [the PS4's specs]. In this day and age, for me, the evolution of engines and dev tools is more important to the development side than the evolution of the hardware".

Playstaion 2268d ago

I see a box of Joy first thing in the morning at the bottom of my tv & last thing at night before I give my Ps4 a kiss goodnight .

supes_242268d ago

You seriously need a woman.

It is Blatantly apparent by reading the comments section over there.

"the PS4 has made things easier but also challenges us" -Naoki Yoshida

"You have an idea, you try it out, and if it's good, you keep it, if it's not, you think of something else. By shortening this cycle, I believe PS4 games can be richer." -Mark Cerny

As for Shinji Mikami, he seems a little scared by the prospect of ps4! :D

Xsilver2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

In the words of Cerny easy to learn hard to master, and that's how you make a console stay relevant.

ovnipc2267d ago

Power for what? its no games!!!! PS4 i buy you when you show me some good games like Titanfall, KZ looks good but not to buy a console, Infamous I never like them I wont risk it, KZ 2 and KZ3 controller aim sucks IDK if this one will be the same, right now X1 has a better line up, X1 Day One. But PS drones dont see it they been programmed.

Xsilver2267d ago

like how xbox drownes ran back to the company that tried to screw them over yeah ok. i mean how could someone be so blind but whatever i love KZ and the amount of variety i see on the PS4 makes it a day one purchase for me, and to know that ND and Santa Monica haven't showed their games makes me way more excited.

trancefreak2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

who is going to take the PS4 out slowly and sniff the packaging for an hour. It's like that new car smell. Yeah Baby.

DaGR8JIBRALTAR2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

not for a hour..maybe 5 or 10 seconds!

Ps4 is a video game console & not a cable box..

Death2268d ago

Except for Netflix that doesn't require a gaming subscription. Not to mention the Blu-ray player for movies or the big Viacom deal Sony recently announced.

So yeah, you're wrong.

Highlife2268d ago

He said "cable box"
err umm you know the useless feature of watching tv on your tv with a cable box and a cable box i mean console.

jXales2268d ago

Well, Ps4, doesn't have cable now does it?

netflix and blu ray are more on demand services. Cable is cable.

Death2268d ago

You guys are so crazy with your double speak. Neither the Xbox360 or Xbox one are a "cable box". They do allow users that subscribe to Time Warner to stream live tv via an app though at no extra charge. This is the very same technology as Sony will be using for their Viacom deal they announced. Instead of having a cable box, Viacom subscribers will be able to download the app and get tv content via their PS4 just like the Xbox360 and Xbox One do with Time Warner.

Wasn't that easy to understand when I walked you through it instead of having to click the link I provided?

Hicken2268d ago

You talk double speak when you're using false equivalencies?

Go figure.

A car isn't an air conditioner because it has that feature. It's still a car. And when you advertise it, you advertise it as a car.

Microsoft advertised their car as an A/C unit first, and a car second.

Sony did not.

No double speak needed. Just some common sense and general comprehension.

Highlife2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

You do know that they showed the xbone hooked up to a cable box to show that you can watch live tv. Hence "cable box". You hook up your dvr to the xbone and get less from it as you can't watch your recorded shows or start a recording. So really what is the point just change inputs and have a full functioning dvr. The only thing that looks ok is the fantasy football stuff while watching tv but I have a phone app and a tablet for that anyway. The streaming apps are something completely different.

So I guess I will hold your hand now seeing as you are walking blind.

Death2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )


If your common sense is telling you that Microsoft is selling the XboxOne as an air conditioner and not a car...

Microsoft never advertised the XboxOne as a cable box. They announced their partnership with Time Warner the same as Sony announced theirs with Viacom.


The XboxOne has an HDMI in port. You can hook your cablebox, Xbox360, or PS4 to it if you like. That doesn't make the XboxOne a cablebox, 360, PS4 or for some people with common sense, an air conditioner. It simply gives you the ability to stay connected with your friends and still watch tv or play any device with an HDMI out through it.

I'm really not sure how this feature can be spun as being bad.

MysticStrummer2268d ago

"I'm really not sure how this feature can be spun as being bad."

Losing features when you run certain devices through the XB1 is bad.


See how easy that was?

Death2268d ago

You guys and your bias are awesome.

When you run any device through the PS4 you lose all the features. What you are saying is having no HDMI in on the PS4 is better so you can either be on your PS4 or something else. With PS4 it's 100% games only no matter how many deals Sony makes with content providers or how many Netflix and Hulu's you put on it. It's all about games. It's beyond hypocrisy how you can say the PS4 is better since there is no paywall for Netflix and then say Sony focus's on games only. The "other" content is not behind a paywall, but the gaming is.

Want to watch tv without an app and still be connected to your friends so you can get an invite on screen? You are only doing it on one console. Being connected so you can game more is not better for gamers? You Sony faithfull are a fickle bunch.

Maybe N4G has really skewered my impression of Playstation gamers. The way I see it, the Xbox is a console for gamers. The Playstation is a console for Playstation fans.

XTGamers2268d ago

Except if you live outside the US, please dont fail to mention that, as you're so commited to explain the benefits of a cable box connected to XOne

JamieL2268d ago

Death man I'm with you 100%. These fools are on such a MS hate campaign they aren't even capable of understanding your simple point. They are convinced that because the XBone has an HDMI in and the PS4 doesn't, it automatically makes it a "stupid thing no REAL GAMER would want", the fact that the XBone can do something the PS4 can't really must really eat them up bad, which is weird because they say “keep that $hit out of my PS4”. Especially when it's for a feature (cable) they claim to have absolutely no interest in what so ever, but just can't stop themselves from coming into every article about a console they will never own, to bash a feature they don't want anyway. He was simple calling the attitude of “Less is better” on PS4, when it comes to this feature anyway. I agree with him, any bias that can make your opinion and arguments look this stupid, can’t be healthy.

thexmanone2268d ago

I agree, my cable box I got from Comcast is nothing like the PS4

ABeastNamedTariq2268d ago (Edited 2268d ago )

Looks like developers are starting to use that extra power already. That's a good thing.


"By increasing the memory, the freedom of design and expression increases. Characters and maps can be displayed in high quality. The SHARE button, the remote play capabilities, and the companion apps all allow for more freedom. It feels like the PS4 is saying to us, 'I've prepared an amusement park for you. Here is some equipment, too. How you put it all together and what you express is up to you.' So the next thing for us is to squeeze out an idea."

I likes it, I likes it.

PSPMAN072268d ago

Agreed, can wait til the heavy hitting studios, start to max out the PS4 potential, I think we'll see some amazing new IPs and awesome gameplay

Jazz41082268d ago

The only comment that seemed to praise the ps4 came from Cerny. Look at the facts. Nothing that could not have been said about either console and these guys are developing games for it and Cerny well hes not biased.

ABeastNamedTariq2268d ago

Yet..that comment wasn't from him and was praising the PS4's capabilities. Who was talking about other consoles, here? You can leave now.

thetruthx12268d ago

I hope it's a good console. Good for all gamers

nosferatuzodd2268d ago

you will get you're moneys worth

Hicken2268d ago

He won't, because he won't be getting one.
