Sony celebratory success that the PlayStation 4 is currently enjoying lies a dark current beneath the surface.
PS3 CRAB GEORGE FOREMAN VITA DOOOOOOOOOMZZ! N4G is returning to familiarity.
The doom, gloom, and panic is for the benefit of advertisers. Developers leave game studios when they get better offers and more opportunities from other studios. Some developers just want to make a name for themselves in the industry. Saying Sony is in trouble is like saying fat people everywhere are going to stop eating junk food all at the same time. *NONSENSE*
It cant be said for sure. Theyre a big company
From Xfire: "Imagine a PlayStation that could sense and react to gamer's joy, frustration, or boredom."
Great so my console is going to be depressed and anxious 24/7
come now Fox, we all know you also have bouts of enjoyment while playing some games. Therefore it's not all depression and anxiety, just 90% that. ;P
@Foxtrot No, when it knows you are depressed, then it would cheer you up, to keep gamers in a good mental state.
Is Peter Molyneux working for Sony now?
No, thanks. I want to play games, not to be a lab rat for your experiments.
technically this could be used to enhance games. Struggling with something and just broke your controller. We see you, dial down the difficulty to noob so you can finally have that dopamine rush of excitement which comes from finally beating that boss... I mean, I agree, no thanks, but patents like these tend to be rather premature and something that wouldn't come to fruition for a few+ more decades. Proof of concept and trademark so others can't capitalize on the idea... Even then, it did come to fruition it still requires the player to have a camera in their room or a headset on. Long as they don't force something like this similar to what XB did with Kinect then to each their own I suppose. It's a hard pass for me though, and if they tried to force something like this on a PS console, see ya later PS.
Turn up. I'm ready. Let's open the flood gates, I'm in a hurry to some something "actually crazy" in gaming.
No thanks Sony. I’m good on that.
It’s an interesting idea at least. Not sure how it will work for each individual or if it would work well at all. I am not opposed to it but need to see it in action. A lot of these patents never make it to the public and this could be one of them.
That is wonderful news! I just hope that this isn't used for trying to find the perfect timing to upsell DLC or microtransactions but for finding ways to help ppl have a more positive experience.
what about 'frisky' ?
Such bs they can patent stuff like this that's as obvious as day. Now someday when someone wants to actually make something useful using sensor data Sony will come knocking at your door looking for a handout.
Sony just released its financial results for the second quarter of the fiscal year, on top of an update of PS5 shipments to retailers.
congratulations sony well done
We need first party exclusives to keep gamers excited and those sales up.. Announce a new Killzone or start with a remake of the second one. Sony has its flagship FPS but doesn’t believe enough in it!! Show us that gaas format is not a big part of the way forward.
Since the launch of PS4 Killzone Shadow Fall has been the only Sony 1st party FPS campaign released. Would love a new Killzone or Resistance.
Very solid quarter and this doesn't even include Spiderman 2.
spiderman sold 5 million now been updated
So it actually outsold Mario?
and they are just releasing the new PS5 model
Nobody stopping this train. Well done and well deserved.
Wait... that can't be... Sony was done for and everyone would switch to X-Box because of Starfield & activision/Blizzard!!! How... how can that be?!?! Ah, right... we like quality games and that's why we stick with Playstation.
Congrats, well deserved! :)
