It had a gaming app? OKAAAY!

Neonridr662d ago

Think of it more like a Twitch competitor. It wasn't something you played games on, more that you could watch other people play games on. It never took off and couldn't compete.

Terry_B662d ago

Ah, never heard of it indeed.

Neonridr662d ago

@Terry_B - you didn't miss much. They tried to get it to catch on by signing a few big streamers from Twitch.

FinalFantasyFanatic661d ago

I didn't know this existed either, I did see some advertisement or posts for streamers playing games on Facebook though (not sure if it's the same thing).

porkChop661d ago

What about streamers like Ramee, Kebun, and RatedEpicz? Ramee just signed a multi-year contract with FB Gaming late last year.

TheEnigma313661d ago

FB has enough money to pay them off.

Was this the section where gamers streamed?

"NVIDIA's Generative AI-Powered Modding Tool Is A Gamechanger For The Industry"

True, the especially for all the industry that gets put out of work by it.

Have you ever used a self service checkout in a store? Should we ditch alarm clocks so that we can hire people to shoot peas at our bedroom windows to wake us up like they did in the 1800s?

Einhander197221h ago

Working at a grocery store as a checkout clerk used to be a respectable job that could support a family.

romulus2321h ago

I try to avoid them at all costs, why should we do a cashiers/clerks job without any training and without being paid for it? Comparing people losing their jobs to A.I. to people from the 1800's shooting peas is hilarious, good try though.

"Nope"

That´s why you getting none. Keep on giving Sony a pass while real Playstation fans are giving them a hard time demanding better.

Cacabunga2d ago

Given the competition they have why should they waste money on them?

ChasterMies2d ago

PlayStation is the number 1 selling console. Sony’s marketing strategy is working. Also consider that Microsoft is now a 3rd party publisher. They will go where the other 3rd party publishers go. I’m sure you’ll eventually see Halo in a PlayStation State of Play.

JackBNimble2d ago

Yeah, why should sony waist money on the fans who keep propping them up no matter what?
Can you imagine if MS was software only, why would sony ever do shows?

@Obscure_Observer

Out of all humans I know, you are the least qualified one to tell people to stop giving a company they support a pass.

Cacabunga2d ago

xbox is advertising PS games.

repsahj2d ago

Lol, as if you guys didn't give MS an unlimited pass for a very, very long time already.

MrBeatdown2d ago

Demanding better infomercials?

shinoff21832d ago

Did you have that same energy for Xbox when the droughted you guys for a decade plus? I doubt it

You are right though. Sony has got to give us some sort of gameplan, something, cause Concord, marathon, fairgames, ain't gonna cut it.

S2Killinit2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

@Obscure
You must have amnesia. Do you only remember the MS show and then assume that Sony must immediately respond? Why? Because MS showed a bunch of multiplatform games? Now, Sony must show too? Makes no sense.

Unlike MS, Sony has been releasing exclusive games all along. MS hasnt even released anything yet.

outsider16242d ago

"Keep on giving Sony a pass.."

Guys should we tell him?

BISHOP-BRASIL1d 19h ago

I'm sorry, you expect us to demand better what exactly? Ads? Because you realize that's what these little presentations really are, right? They are a marketing tool, they don't determine what games we get or not, they are only one way of showing 'em off... Marketing is not the product, is what you gotta do to sell the product and, on that front, do you really think Sony is the one in need of your hot take there? Do you see any other console doing better?

Also, considering gaming companies already spend as much in marketing as they do actual development as it is, not making a bigger thing of these events than they absolutely need to be sounds like good business to me. The industry is suffering job cuts left and right, development costs are through the roof and you expect these companies to spend even more on marketing which produces literally nothing tangible for us costumers in the end? Talk about being tone deaf.

mkis0071d 15h ago (Edited 1d 15h ago )

What is worse is showing games that have no release dates. How many games coming out this and next year were announced 3 years or more ago?

If I had 1 console it would be playstation , the track record is unbroken and unsurpassed.
