it will make things interesting. Sony goes after them so they can always adjust as needed.

Zeref1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

You can't change what you announce in a day. That's not how things work xD.

@people below

They didn't change the ram in a day smh. Sony is usually just 8 hours after Microsoft. Less than half a day. if you think these things can happen in 8 hours you're delusional. Also the PS4 was already in production. You can't change stuff that's already in production. You have to cancel production and start all over. Which results into a delay. Which didn't happen. This is really just common sense.

@CitizenFour
The price was already fixed. They didn't change it. I remember someone said in an interview that when MS announced the $500 pricepoint Sony guys were running up and down the hallway, they were happy because they had the pricing advantage at $400. Even a thing as pricing you can't change it last minute. The costs have already been carefully planned and calculated. You guys underestimate how much goes into such a show. The only thing they might have added was the powerpoint that showed how "gamer friendly" they were by countering Xbox One's original policies. And even that was planned way before the day of E3 2013 because the Xbox One with its original policies was announced a good two or three months before E3. Almost none of E3 2013 was a direct reaction to Microsofts conference. Pricing was just pure coincidence. The mud throwing was planned way before E3.

PunisherRevenge1360d ago

It worked for Sony before!!!!

GUTZnPAPERCUTZ1360d ago

Yeah that's why Sony threw 8gb of GDDR5 in MS face, It sucks and was dirty and if it were 4gb this gen would have been more equal with PS4 still displaying 1080p most likely but worse textures and draw distance on 3rd party titles as compared to X1. If MS would have waited longer and went with DDR4 like they were than maybe it would have been a little closer but the GPU is still underpowered compared. If MS does come out with a "Stronger 6tflop" console than you can bet they won't let Sony beat them again. Fanboys aside, these two juggernauts don't get to outdo each other very often and they have both won and lost in the past to hardware or software so it will be interesting to say the least!

Pogmathoin1360d ago

People agree with gutz..... Unbelievable......

showtimefolks1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

zeref

dude sony an always add more exclusives to their show. going 2nd does have it's benefits. do you really think last year sony would have shown shenmue 3,FF7 and TLG at the same conference if it wasn't for MS have shown a lot of strong content

yes sony can't change much of 3rd party showing in a day but they always have plan B. have some trailers ready for games that they don't want to announce just yet but will if needed

they don't need permission of anyone to show their own exclusives

there are these rumors flying around before E3 about MS. so you think sony is just sitting there saying oh well what can we do

and it's not changing it's called adjusting your strategy

Wallstreet371360d ago

I dont understand what your saying lol Sony has way more first party studios working on games than microsoft and at will can withhold or add more games to their presentation as they see fit. Its a fact Microsoft cannot go toe to toe with Sony in the games department, Sony just has too many guns.

GameNameFame1360d ago

@GUTZnPAPERCUTZ

Lol. Are you serious?

Yes. Sony decided to upgrade to 8 Gig ram. A change with huge sourcing and manufacturing ramification. Based on what? MS presentation? in less than a day?

Lets stop the desperate strawgrasping here.

MS product was inferior spec due to so much focus on multimedia and kinect entertainment.

JackBNimble1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

GUTz

Sony announced the ps4 had 8gb gddr5 on feb 20/2013 at the official ps4 reveal , that's about 3 1/2 months before E3.

Edit: I will also add that the ps4 reveal was months before xbox one , and all ps4 specs were announced as well. So how was that a dirty move by Sony ?

Kingthrash3601360d ago

This ^^^^
I was just about to say this....how on earth are people agreeing with guts when he is totally wrong. MS had 31/2 months to counter them...they didnt, then on top of not counting they still overpriced the Xbox and still went and reveled it as a tc product. They seen sonys pure gaming plan and still went on with the whole anti consumer plan.
Man I'm happy to hear they might have new ips I cant wait to see what they got in store, but that comment pissed me off

andrewsquall1360d ago

@GUTZnPAPERCUTZ Why the hell did so many people disagree with you? Its so true. Even Digital Foundry said back before the PS4 was revealed there was no way they would be able to put 8gbs of GDDR5 in the PS4.

Here is the proof from 18/01/13 http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... THAT is why the console's reveal was such a big deal. It doesn't matter if you close your ears and disagree, it HAPPENED. And because they nailed it with GDDR5 for now, its easy to bump up the clock speeds on this new Neo and still have the best architecture going from the get go.

The only megaton Xbox can do at E3 will be if they announce something around the lines of "anybody who picks up the Slim Xbone this year, gets a free upgrade to the Scoprio next year".

Budrazor1360d ago

They didn't change the ram, but changes were made smh.

marquisray1360d ago

So that gives microsoft time to change things once sony announce there product they have time . This is going to be good lol

Omnislashver361360d ago

I'm thinking Sony has got something up their sleeves, they really do 'adjust' at the last minute, or hold out crucial info. What if PS4.5 is really 5 or so TFLOPS and out this year? It would mean Scorpio would be outing a new console gen a year later than Neo, throwing Scorpio into some kind of Dreamcast scenario... Too little, too late, and ready to be dominated by PS5. Very peculiar scenario.

nX1360d ago

Some funny comments in here, looks like Xbots have become more gullible lately.

Budrazor1360d ago

They aren't talking about hardware changes. Sony waits for MS to slip up like the DRM policy, then takes advantage of people dislikes and looks like they are for the gamers when they have similar interests from the start. Denial is strong in this one.

CitizenFour1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

If Sony changed anything, it was during the E3 where the consoles were first announced. It wasn't anything to do with their hardware either. They most likely saw MS go first and then adjusted price point of the PS4 to undercut that of the Xbox One, knowing this would put them in a favorable position to sell more units and leave MS looking greedy. A less powerful console for more money doesn't translate well. Sony took advantage of their high price point and adjusted theirs accordingly to look like the better deal. Genius really.

MagicBeanz1359d ago

Sony will have multiple things they can do waiting and ready and they can adjust as need be depending on how badly Microsoft crap the bed.

These press conferences are planned carefully far in advance.

Unspoken1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

Nah, Sony can see into the future with its VR tech and is able to change the flow of time however it suits them.

The PS3 was a time anomaly they had no control over because the distortion field collapsed. It allowd tachyon particles to flow through and affect it's consumer base which allowed them to critically think about their purchase.

Lmao I'm so glad this was the first comment. It really pisses off the "e3 planned carefully in advance" Sony fanboys.

"Are you trying to say Sony is a reactionary company?!"

Yes you idiots lmao! All companies are. The companies that don't react and adapt are dead! They can easily adjust their presentation to counter Microsoft and yes they have already planned the contingency.

opinionated1360d ago

@stardust
You guys are hilariously stubborn. You have watched e3s before, right? They are terrible most of the time. You act like its some rehearsed masterpiece that they are scared to change for any reason. It's simply not true.

Just because Sony is on top right now doesn't mean they will kick back and enjoy their spoils. That's not how any business works. It's full throttle at all times because that shit can change in an instant. If Microsoft drops bombs then Sony will answer in full. They won't make 2 shows but they will tweak and adjust. Anyone who thinks otherwise is ignorant. You can think whatever you want though..

showtimefolks1360d ago

stonewall you are a xbox fanboy like we called you on uncharted 4 article but now you are showing your true colors

opinionated1360d ago

@showtime
How am I an Xbox fanboy for saying that Sony will counter Microsoft if they need to? Its just business dummy, it's not "pro" or "anti" anything.. You wouldnt know true colors if they slapped you across the face. Too emotional, you're biased.

You call anyone who didn't worship UC4 an Xbox fanboy like a knee jerker. That makes you double stupid. But please, continue. I think it's funny.

Gol3m1360d ago

^no. But a child would use the phrase 'that makes you double stupid'. What are you a 12 year old?

@gol3m
No what lol? He is double the stupid for say two dumb things. You're even dumber for needing an explanation. What are you, 5?

1360d ago
opinionated1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

@stardust
Yes, you are saying that. Everyone who responded to me is saying that lol. If you weren't you wouldn't have felt the need to defend yourself. You are saying Sony cannot change their presentation. "Straw man" you are laughable.

Using words like "Liability" proves you have no idea what you are talking about. It's a press conference dummy. There is no legality involved. How are they legally responsible for their Presser and how would adjusting it violate that? You are a moron. It's not as serious as you think it is..

I didn't say he doubled in stupidity lmao. I said he was double stupid referring to the 2 dumb things he said. You idiots are delightfully dense. I feel like a college professor talking to you economic illiterates.

Name one moronic thing I said about UC4. You can't. The only reason my opinion pisses you off is because deep down you know I'm right.

"MS to showcase a super solid line up" And of course the first comment has to make it about Sony, because half of you all can't control your insecurities. So now this is officially a Sony article rather than MS article surprise, surprise. MS has to have a solid line up of games just like the rest of the platform owners. The games have to get better each and every year obviously.

objdadon1360d ago

There's no need for sony to adjust a damn thing lol

shinrock1360d ago

Didn't they adjust after e3 x1 announcement?

ziggurcat1360d ago

@shinrock:

no, they didn't.

http://www.playstationlifes...

that kind of reaction clearly shows that Sony had already established what they were going to do in their presentation. it also shows that there was no last-minute "oh, we're just going to remove the camera from the console's package to lower the price" nonsense, either.

Budrazor1360d ago

Your gonna get hanged on here for saying that.

Aceman181360d ago

Well just this week I boxed up my X1 with the intent of selling it, and the 3 games I have for it. If M$ can't floor me with games that would actually pique my interest I'm selling it outright.

Nice. I'm liking the sound of that! I'm excited to see some gameplay!! Also hoping the Forza Horizon rumors are true.

The_Hooligan1360d ago

Well I hope as a gamer they announce great games. More games for Xbox, more games for PlayStation, more games for Nintendo means more games for us all. Happy e3 to all and hope it's the best one yet.

Also I just bought the ps4 Uncharted bundle last month and I'm very happy with my purchase. But I wanted to ask if I should buy the Xbox one or wait for the Scorpio?

christocolus1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

Congrats on your PS4 purchase....regarding the Scorpio I think you should wait and see what MS announces at E3. We know a more powerful xbox console (Scorpio) is coming so your best bet is to exercise some patience but if you can't wait then go ahead and get the slim xbox one which will most likely be revealed at E3.

Rookie_Monster1360d ago (Edited 1360d ago )

MS is killing it this E3. The lineup looks incredible with 5-6 new Xbox console exclusive game reveal at this year's E3 and the diversity of genre will make it just that much better. Just a few more days folks. :)

Alexious1360d ago

Yeah, the great thing is that it will all be focused on proper games since they don't have a VR device yet. Which works for me, as I'm really not into VR (and yes, I've tried it).

WeAreLegion1360d ago

Spoiler alert. They're doing VR.

showtimefolks1360d ago

alexious

funny thing is they will talk about VR. scorpio is coming because ms wants oculus support

kenwonobi1360d ago

That moment you think you are dissing the competition but really you're console of choice is doing the same thing.

Now you can edit your comment and say how much you love VR now that you know that MS is doing it.

Well half of Sony's exclusives have been on PS3 or Vita and a few on PC. Well not really half but a good dozen or more easy and they're not done yet.

hiawa231360d ago

Well, they are exclusive for us console only gamers.

Sunny_D1360d ago

@catchyouslippin

Lol, please go ahead and ignore the good games that are on the PS4 to prove a terrible point. All you showcase is that Ps4 has games in quantity and quality.

Sony was the one that started that console exclusive stuff when they plastered it on Street Fighter V and said it on the commercials so yeah.

This will be the very very VERY best E3 in history. Super solid lineup of AAAA games and massive megatons!

Nintendo's E3 is usually the one I look forward to the most. Not this year though. However, I am very interested in learning more about the new hardware.

Nintendo's E3 this year will be overlooked as it should be as the'll only have one title to show ;)

Sunny_D1360d ago

wandx901360d ago

Wow, amazing post! You must be really feeling accomplished now that you "crushed those damn xb0ts g4m3rs" to shame after this so well thought out comment + the other 3 or 4 that you posted here as well. Nicely done! After all, why spend time discussing like an adult and mature person, about the videogame that i own when i can just spend the whole day writing shit to random people over the internet about a console that i don't even like? That's brilliant. I hope you're making a lot of money or at least winning a bonus from Sony for saying all this, because if you're not, than what's the point of coming here, write all this crap for no reason, defending a product made for people's entertainment and criticizing other consoles because they're from a different brand than your majestic Sony? Unless, you are either a troll, or if you suffer from some sort of psychological issue that doesn't have a cure, i really don't see the point of doing this. Each one pick their console and that's it. If you own console A but not B, fuck it. No reason for bitching. Your kind makes real gamers look bad. At least i know that not all Sony gamers (or Xbox gamers for that matter) are idiotic people writing shit about a machine of entertainment like that. People nowadays spend more time on the internet talking about their console than actually playing the fucking thing. Ridiculous...

1360d ago
killer_goat1360d ago

You are going to be disappointed. No such thing as AAAA games

ziggurcat1359d ago

exactly. AAAA is a made up category of games - the only other time I've ever seen anyone use this term has been on the misterxmedia website. and he's only adding the extra A in there in an attempt to imply that xbox games are better in terms of their quality - he doesn't seem to understand that the term "AAA" refers to the budget of a game.
