Sony @ GC 09: This Is Where A 10 year Plan Gets You

DCI from Games on Smash writes about Sony's performance at Gamescom 2009 in Cologne Germany.

"Gamescom 2009 in Cologne Germany was full of surprises, especially for Sony fans. Sony has shown us that they have plenty of tricks up their sleeves, and has much to offer gamers despite being in 3rd place. After all of their announcements, it became abundantly clear to me that this is just another part of their 10 year plan. I would like to go over why I believe Sony has had faith in their brand name, and why Gamescon will literally pay off for them in the long run."

console is making history man..

History vs Vision
MS has been trying to copy history this gen (Sony's to be exact), while Sony has been preparing for what the future demands. While it is true that those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it, those who don't have the vision to see the upcoming trends will also be doomed.

This gen was destined to be longer from the very beginning. With both of the HD consoles having starting prices twice that of normal console generations, it was inevitable for this gen to last twice as long. It's not the technology that dictates the length of a console gen, but the price.

Now that all of the consoles have prices similar to the starting price of past generations, it truely is as if this gen has just begun. Even if all consoles drop in price $50 per year, this gen will last another 4-5 years easily. So it will be interesting to see what this gen brings.

Add to the equation that all systems will be fully immersed in motion controls by the end of 2010, not to mention 3D gaming is comming, and the ball game has just gotten much more interesting. That means that this gen could possibly be the first to see two systems top 100mil, and it might not be the two that you think.

So grab a chair boys and girls, pick up your controllers, and press the power button.
For from this day forth I only have two words for all the consoles....

GAME ON!
