GeekParty: "During the PlayStation 4 launch, Sony’s marketing campaign revolved around greatness: great console, great games, and the creation of a perfect day. Sadly, that idea has become more of a dream than reality."
All PR talk I'm afraid, sure there will be some great exclusives in the near future but just as many disappointments, the last year has been indication enough of this, and while next year you've got exclusives which are bound to be well received like Uncharted 4 and Bloodborne, you've also got games that could go either way like The Order: 1886 or Until Dawn.
yep that's how playstations always been, they put out a lot of games some are hits and some are flops. seems to be a winning formula
At least sony is being honest to have you wait and wait and wait ...and wait for greatness. Endurance is key in waiting game. Still wonder what motto comes next to keep us dreaming.
Driveclub server disaster rolling PSN blackouts ridiculous PSnow pricing failed PSTV dongle still no DLNA 2.0 update bungle thumbstick rubber issues 3rd parties dropping share play PS app is a joke Delayed games evolve big alpha blunder Thankfully my xbox one doesn't have these problems. Hopefully NEXT YEAR my ps4 will finally find that greatness.
Ive always had consoles mostly for JRPGS and Playstation is the best option for me.
Rime, Wild, Abzu, The Tomorrow Children, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, The Witness, No Man's Sky, Alienation, Hellblade, Uncharted, The Order, Bloodborne, Until Dawn, etc. etc. etc....with more announcements incoming at playstation event in December.. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!
How many more of these posts are we going to get? To answer your question, for me personally, yes and no. I have seen greatness in the game's I have played so far and I'm also waiting for more greatness to come. Uncharted 4, The Order: 1886, whatever Sony Santa Monica has cooking.
Because this IS a opinion piece I'll give my two cents. I've been experiencing greatness since launch. My only issue is u still can't video chat. Ive had the cam since day one and haven't used it. Other than that, im happy.
I'm happy with my ps4 too - but there's other problems: no way of knowing when was last time friends logged on.....no notification of when friends do log on.....message system isn't nearly as good as was on ps3.......no support for sony Bluetooth ps3 headsets....I hate the psn store layout....ps+ games haven't been that great. hey, I'm super-excited for next February and all the cool-looking games - and I don't mind waiting for them, but the above issues I mentioned are a real pain. so, I'm hoping some of this stuff will get better in the coming year.
Another one of these bs articles? Why single out the PS4 when they've all had disappointments and a lack if tons of exclusives.
There is no singling out PS4 with these opinion pieces http://n4g.com/news/1617263...
yeah one negative article about MS vs 20 negative article about SONY prove your point/s
@Wodan Does that mean their are a greater number of "opinions" that think the PS4 is not as great as some here believe? I mean since supposedly we don't get nearly as many articles about the X1 or WiiU being bad or horrible according to N4G. Makes you think doesn't it... Naaaaaaw, the media is biased!! That's the answer everyone wants to hear!
It is an opinion piece..so chill out and stop being so defensive. Just like most of your anti-ms posts on all those negative xbox articles. It is just opinion, Is it not?
i've had some greatness with my ps4 and i know it will get WAAAY better or um.. greater!!!
More actual exclusives , with a higher metacritic avarage, superior multiplats, more than doubing sales of competitors. Yea.. These articles come out the woodwork, much like the XBone fanboys when they have a couple of exclusives released, without ANYTHING being released from early in the year until this point.. Will be put back in their place just like last TWO gens, with them probably having near 0 exclusives for the last 3 years of it's lifespan. Seem to have balls since The Master Chief collection came out, which is an awesome collection full of great memories, but we all know which remaster is topping it in metacritic so far this year don't we? Many more choices in genres, many more options.. Unlike the stagnant US culture, not everything has to have a fast car or a gun. Decembers coming, just to show you bunch of jokers who is the king of first party development. American 'journalism' is cancer.
Man.... it's been some weird PS articles lately....
Just their opinion but the first year on PS4 as far as exclusives goes has been terrible. Next year greatness shall come.
The majority of the ones that don't seem to find the greatness are the ones that don't even own the console...go figure. I had it for some months, Infamous was fun, TLOU is still amazing and i play it online a lot. Aside from that i've been playing 3rd party stuff, The Evil Within atm. It's been great and i can't wait for Bloodborne. Let the haters do their thing.
Only Bloodborne. I was really hoping for some other stuff but nothing else has interested me. I guess I really am going to be buying a console for 1 game. I hate doing that.
xbox fans sure are riding a wave of hype lately, they are hyping MCC, a collection of old games,sunset overhype which has a metacritic of 82 yet infamous gets bashed for having an 80?? smh lol not my problem if a game dosent involve aiming a gun you dont like it, LBP3 is bashed a lot yet those games sell very well and have meta critics of 90+, its seems legit to go buy a wii u to play some mario but buying a PS4 for LBP3 not legit?? playstation is about diversity not just mainstream *bang*! bang*! pew*! pew*! pew*! games then they sidestep guilty gear xrd sign an excellent fighting game only releasing on Playstation platforms in december, BUT Killer DLC Instinct Season 2 matters! lol halo MCC matters but TLOU remaster didnt! whats funny is we still have more retail games than xbox one lol but no worries pretty soon xbox one will be 100% dry as far as exclusives go all the way till sept of next year with only fable legends releasing "early 2015" and still has no release date meanwhile in as much as 3 months we will have bloodborne,the order 1886 followed by the tomorow children, possibly until dawn,MLB the show 2015, rachet and clank. anyways in a month we will get some new AAA game reveals in the playstation experience.
Truth. OT - Nope. Greatness is here and more is incoming.
Um, was this the same thing people said about the PS3, after being out for a year. There is no games, blah blah, blah. This is a new system, it takes time to get the games going. Plus there is a whole lot that can happen in a year, we have no idea what Sony or Xbox have up there sleeves as it relates to exclusives. Wait until a few more years in the PS4's life cycle before we start saying there is no games, geez.
Right. Developers are hesitant to invest a ton of money toward a console with a small install base. This is why gamers champion sales. At least why they should. More sold consoles means more and bigger budgeted games. Thing is, the past is prologue, and we have seen for two straight generations that Xbox loses steam and abandons exclusives after 4 years. That's a fact, unless you're really into Kinect games.
Its gonna get better and better with Playstation. Thats how it always is. So yeah LOVING my PS4.
