Bring this back Sony. Dedicate the gaming console to the gamer and win the hearts and minds of millions of warriors, or something.
Part of me hopes that Sony is going to step away from that market (not necessarily casual games, but games that are just... glorified tools) and put the focus back on gaming as being fun and creative and stimulating.
Now this is gaming!
The realistic part of me knows this is just hypocritical trash-talk and there will be tons of crap like this on every next-gen console.
Still, fun times!
I don't think Sony is as a stupid as some GAFers who think that a console with such a narrow scope as "core gaming" is going to float in 2013. Both consoles will cater towards "entertainment".
It looks like the PS4 is going to cater towards gaming, as opposed to Microsofts catering towards "entertainment".
Showing off Evolution arcade racer #4 with pretty graphics isn't going to sell millions of consoles, nor is this Sega-esque marketing strategy.
I love Sony's first party line-up as much as the next GAFer, but if their next console isn't the equivalent of a gaming Apple TV then it'll fizzle pretty quickly after early adopters carry it through the launch period. What's wrong with a console that can play COD *and* do entertainment *and* yoga 'games'? Of course PS4 will undoubtedly end up having this broader strategy in the long-term (just like PS3), hence why this marketing is silly.
I'd like to agree with you. Ideally I'll stick with this generation as long as I can, hopefully by then the wii U will be in its prime, and cheaper....but I'm pretty sure once those shiny new ip's show up I'll be selling my methadone.
You people can have your console wars ..........i am jumping out of next gen. no more overpriced system and games for me.
PS4 exclusive, errr, not exclusive killer app:
Of is the PS4 going to be iOS compatible?
Agreed. The hardware has been there, but the consoles have been holding it back. I'm glad that more and more PC devs are heading to Kickstarter to bring out the potential of the PC, like Chris Roberts and Star Citizen. I'm hoping with the ease in development with the new consoles and the similar architecture that PC gaming will really take off.
Unfortunately not. Consoles have been holding it back for quite sometime (with the exception of crysis and witcher 2)
But with the rumored AMD issue, I'm not so sure. Guess we'll see.
I'm sorry but.. Are these even official Sony ads? Are they actually been paid for by Sony?
Can anyone verify it? I'm willing to bet there are some crazy fanboys out there with a little money and resources to pay for these measly iOS banner ads.
I cannot see Sony actually doing this, maybe I am too naive.
