Here is the PS4 Press Conference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qh8KLN-l86o


Thoughts? Questions? Concerns?


For my part, I'm putting my money into Sony's camp, and hope that the XBox One is a colossal failure.

  • First that used game video was funny.

    Second they have a point. Microsoft is trying to one up Sony by offering 4 to 5 year old games and Sony usually offers games that aren't even 2 years old.

  • Really disapointed that Notch didn't show though after he got that V.I.P Gold PSone from Sony. Maybe he was one of the developers Microsoft payed not to show up if that rumor was true?

    Then again I'm doubting Notch would do that but its disappointing to see Crapbox Zero get it and we don't.

  • Sony is also banning online passes it seems

    [quote]We've already come right out and said we're not going to allow online pass. And the word "allow" is key there. Specifically with online, with PS+ requiring a charge to play online, we would not want any publisher (to charge.)[/quote]

    Looks like Sony has their head screwed on right.
    (A real hero of the common man our Sony is! :D)

  • Uh...[Quote]Sony or Microsoft is never going to be able to tell EA or Activision exactly what they can do.[/Quote]That said, this is a very positive step.

  • They can if they have the user base.

    There are two sides working here:
    Publishers: will strongly favor the ONE because of DRM, trading etc.
    Players: hopefully strongly favor the PS4.

    What can happen:
    No games on the PS4 if the publishers want to force DRM on it and Sony refuses.
    --> The One sells more because of more games

    No one buys the One
    --> publishers love money. They have to release games on the PS4 to sell them and are forced to do what Sony wants.


    The problem is: gamers are weak-minded.
    Oh god this game relaeses 20 minutes later than on XXXXX. I will never use YYYYY again. This sucks.
    Heard it many times.

  • @Darth Marsden said: Uh...That said, this is a very positive step.

    Remember, all that means is that EA/Craptivision have to do the same sort of stuff they do already and that's the season pass/day one dlc/ content locking on disc bullshit.
    And its a good point. If they want to do that, its their funeral.
    (And already consumers make it very clear if they step over the line)

    Edit: I honestly see the line being split this generation.

    Microsoft will have the markets it wants, the 20-something asshole game bro who'll mindlessly buy any shit with explosions, andThe older casual gamers who like TV stuff.

    Sony will have everyone else. They are going for a brand loyalty angle.
    It may be a smaller market, but its also one willing to part with more cash.
    They will have the Japanese and European developers on side, making unique exclusives much like the ones that have found good success on the PS3 already.

    Still they buy on Day 1 and also buy the cut out Day One DLC Content.
    So if the publishers still make money that way why would they ever stop?

    Because I bet a lot of those people who bought Sim City won't ever touch another Sim City game again, at least until EA go under and the IP gets transferred, or EA work extremely hard to make up for a travesty like that.

    Also I've never bought Mass Effect 3 due to the ending. I'm wary of getting Dragon Age again after the second one.
    If you keep biting the hand that's feeds you, you'll either starve or be put down.

  • I never understood boycotting ME3 for the ending. Yes it was bad, but the rest game was amazing!
