Sony Corp. upgraded its earnings outlook for a second straight quarter, thanks to a plethora of hit video-game titles that are boosting the PlayStation business.
PlayStation is dominating. I can't wait for ps5
Same, it hasn't been since probably the height of PS2 that a console creator has been this on top of their game. Makes me very excited to see where they go next.
We can't really say that for the handheld. They really lost trust of gamers when it comes to handheld, which is a pity. Feels like it's not the same people managing handheld devices and home consoles..
The PS5 will be a must have for me. But as to PS4, im GLAD that the business model of making games is winning. I know people say this all the time, but it has to be said, Sony deserves the gold.
It really is nice to see a company dominating when they just do what they do best, and provide for their customer base. Instead of just trying to capture the hot trendy thing at the moment which looks like it might bring in some extra revenue with less effort, they've streamlined their process, and doubled down on what has always made PS so desireable in the first place. That thing is something for everyone on the niche end, and a great selection of games to choose from that tends to appeal to a broad audience. Sony's made a lot of good moves this gen, and it certainly hasn't hurt that MS screwed up at the beginning, and has been playing the "Look at me" game all gen with not much to look at in the process.
Their first party games have been good. Looking forward to their 2019 lineup. But damn 3.3 million in 3 days.
Gotta try this one!
While this is great news, it’s soured by Sony’s new censorshing policy of Japanese games.
Yep. It's really the only thing I can really say I care enough about to criticize them on this gen. There are a few things which make me shake my head, but I don't like this stance of Sony being too involved in censorship of the games that are on their systems. Some things I can understand for many reasons, but the niche Japanese games they're aiming for have such a low target market already, and this just makes them less likely to get made. It makes me think that they're willing to sacrifice the less popular things to try and protect their image, despite their image never having been at risk over this in the past.
Cmon now, PlayStation fanboys. Guaranteed I’ve got a higher trophy count than most, if not all of you that downvoted, and more Japanese games played this gen. https://psnprofiles.com/Tom... Sony is on a roll with their exclusives...but their new wave of censorship is not good.
Doesn't seem like anyone took the bait, so not sure why you're acting like Sony fanboy's attacked you. That censoring thing is something that will either get worked out, or it won't. That doesn't really overshadow the accomplishments that Sony has with the Playstation brand.
@Silly gameAr I suppose I could say you bit....if my comment were actually a troll. Again, check my psnprofile, which I have linked earlier. You'll see my account goes all the way back to 2008. Show yours for comparison, if you've got the sand. I bring this topic up because Playstation is my favorite gaming brand, and this gen has been one of its best imo...up until the mass censoring that has started. I see it as hurting the brand, and if you check out social media, many are in agreement with me, especially Japanese fans, where the censoring is also happening, not just the west. I'm sorry if this statement, from a long time fan since I purchased a day 1 PS1, has upset other fans, but my concern is wanting the brand to continue to be great...not cater to your feelings.
99.9% game not censored, only games censored feature underage girls semi naked and rapish. There is tons of visual novels from japan which are not censored. Also So far only 2 games ve been censored all this concern is nonsense.
More than two games actually, and it's not nonsense because the censoring will just get worse, and more games will be outright banned. Do feel free to point out any "children" in this video. https://www.youtube.com/wat... And this new policy from Sony is effecting games strictly for Japan also. (Playstation headquarters recently moved to California, and thus, all decision making is made there now, not in Japan.)
"Feel free to point out any 'children' in this video" >Senran Kagura characters pop up >Hibari specifically is between 15 and 16 years old lol I swear, y'all think any characters with a bra size above a certain amount magically aren't underage anymore.
@ShadowWolf712 It's quite disturbing you cannot tell the difference between a fictional character and actual person. Also disturbing that you can somehow formulate an age from characters that have no distinguishing age characteristics. Very disturbing indeed.
And how to dominate. With good games. NOT with shady microtransaction filled online only BS. Right EA? Well you could argue Fortnite or GTA online but very few games are able to achieve that.
Cause Sony pictures manged not to tank profits...
Well, they're just not spending too much money on making movies. Venom had a 100m budget and made so far 520m dollars which is a very good ratio. With a chinese release on its way 600m is a given. Also hotel transylvania had a box office run of 520m on a 80m budget. Peter rabbit did 350m on a 50m budget and also most of the almost a billion dollar jumanji was in 2018. I think about 750m of its run was in 2018. Then they had smaller movies that did well. Not sure about TV but I think it was stable. For 2019 they have men in black 4 and spider man to do very wel and probably some more mid size movies.
That's nice, come on PlayStation surpass ps2 domination now .
I turned a few would be xbox one potential buyers in my family on the sole fact that their kids can play free to play games like fortnite, 3 on 3 basketball online without plus. Wish xbox did not lock free to play games behind gold because that would be the tipping point for most parents wanting to buy a xbox or ps4 without having to deal with monthly subs for their kids during xmas.
Just keep making awesome games and I'll still support you Sony.
