From what I've seen, this place has more MS "shills" (like you for instance). In every thread about Sony you seem to be there with your fanboy shit...like clockwork.
You're probably just used to the old mods like Bish banning xbox fans on first site. Can't deal with anyone but Sony shills can you?

I for one very, VERY glad they didn't cancel that game. I absolutely adored that game.

Personally like to see Sony advertise their unique games like Gravity Rush and Puppeteer instead of sending them to die.
Agreed. Gravity Rush and Puppeteer where a couple of my favorite experiences. I’d love a Puppeteer PS4/PS5 remaster with VR support.

I don’t know that it is uncommon around this time in a console cycle. Fanboys are doing everything they can to prop up their console of choice for a successful generation. I remember similar — not going to buy an XBox One/PS4 threads at the end of last gen. It was particularly bad when Microsoft employees were actively participating in the conversation.

Nice try, but i'm more of a Nintendo fan these days (particularly lately). The problem is never fans of a console, but fanboys with a total lack of self awareness spouting nonsense like you do. Either that or just a troll trolling.

for me PS4 has better games on the PSN network then xbox live, and bloodborne, and rpgs that I wanted. Xbox is not well known for Jrpgs, and now that they are putting all their games on pc, which I can just play on computer, instead of spending other few hundred dollars just to play on their console, makes me not even want to get a xbox. Then you have xbox fans bitching in the last of us 2 thread and days gone thread also.

While I'm not sure "Arrogant Sony" is back, they sure seem to be headed that way as of late.

Services, hardware, quality, features, portability, controllers, power, etc... The list goes on and on. Sony is substandard to its competitors in every. Single. Aspect... Aside from their exclusives.

As those exclusives get less and less diverse, and get more and more alike, I really don't have any interest a PS4 or PS5 at this point. At this rate, Sony will be relegated to having the worst console that's only redeeming quality is its plentiful bounty of single player bush hiding/ walking simulator games.

That's not even mentioning their poor return, crossplay, censorship, and service policies.

Seriously. It’s like their competitors released newer consoles or something. Gosh - I wish they would just stop making games and release new hardware already those arrogant bastards.

It is interesting how they've become westernized in a political/social sense and how Microsoft has ate their lunch to be the platform to support actual gamers and at least for now, haven't given into the censoring madness. PS4 exclusives are beginning to have a ideological taint to them, as well as the companies ongoing crusade against animated t--ties.

When the very first reply you have is 90m : 40m, you've already lost whatever argument you thought you had.

If you dig walking cutscenes, and hiding in bushes though, you're in for a treat.

When I think the alternative is Microsoft, a company that tried to piss down my back and tell me it was raining with the original Xbox One design, and the fact that they don't have many games, I think I'm sticking with Sony. The the things the OP cites are pretty minor when I consider the alternatives (getting butt rammed by Microsoft, for example). I go where the games are, and Sony has, hands down, the most games of any platform.

Who's waiting for next gen to play games? Certainly not Xbox One owners. Ashen, Below, and all the 3rd party holiday releases which look far better on the X is plenty. This has all come just within the last couple of months.

But yeah... I suppose you can play through Spiderman again for the umpteenth time. I hear there's a new funny glitch with each play through.

In particular, I don’t like how they are telling devs to censor the sexual content in their games now, and I’m thinking that for every skeleton of this type in their closet, there’s probably at least a handful more that haven’t come to light.
So you were probably done with Sony after they censored BMX XXX on the Playstation 2 right?

I’m even fine with the angry narrative for TLOU2, but it also seems like an indication that the company is entering partisan nonsense, and I don’t want anything to do with that. So the writing is on the wall for me. I’m not a fan of this culture war stupidity, and I’m wondering if there’s a silent majority out there that feels the same.
Care to clarify what you mean by Partisan? If you mean TLOU2 how is the game partisan? If you mean Sony I am pretty sure most groups are perfectly fine limiting the sexualization of under age girls in videogames

I don't think anyone here is going to defend that pedo shit, but then again that's not what this conversation is about. If that's all that they intend to censor, then fine by me.

But their message is this: “About the censorship, we tried to meet global standards.” It's about "the balance of the freedom of expression and safety for children."
Once Sony start censoring content that are not perverted or pedophilia in nature then we can discuss your argument more. But for not the content censored I have seen is mostly just that to avoid the "pedo shit"

PC has the most games of any platform, so you should go there. You seem to love getting "butt rammed" by Sony, but would hate it if it were from MS. Does MS have too big an apendage, or is Sony just a gentler lover?

Oh the irony! You're WAITING for a game to play on your PS4, but say that Xbox users are the ones waiting... While they're currently playing games released in the last couple of weeks.

So rich!

You can't get Sony exclusives on PC. And for $399 I've gotten an entire generation of endless entertainment you can't get elsewhere. I have an Xbox One, it just sits there. I just got Forza Horizon 4 on it for Christmas, and I'm looking forward to that. But it's hard to get too enthused about it when it's just a big paperweight most of the year, know what I mean? Of course, Microsoft wants me to keep buying new hardware while waiting for software, sort of a "give us fire and we'll give you wood" type of sitch, which has kinda been going on the whole generation, hence the butt ramming statement. If asking for more money for new hardware while not delivering on software doesn't qualify as anal coitus, what does?

EDIT: besides, PC gaming is a giant pain in the ass. When PC nerds start talking their shit about graphics cards they sound like a bunch of dorks at a Star Trek convention. It makes me want to slap the shit out of them, and then go slap the shit out of their parents for having them.

hmm? U mean KH 3 only release for PS5 then? There is no different between waiting for a couple of days than waiting for the next gen? Ah i see, playing a braindead game like Sea of Thieve too much make your brain dead as well.

Friend I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. Sony doesn't take more or less risks than either Microsoft or Nintendo and even if they did, what's that even supposed to mean?
Sony’s taking high risks making all their games third person cinematic experiences. It takes guts to spit the same game out with another theme over and over again.

The uncensored version of BMX XXX was rated AO.

Certain types of content shouldn't be censored just because most people are fine with that content being censored. There are two situations where it's fine: (1) If the content nets the game an AO (or equivalent rating) or (2) if the content actually calls for reprehensible actions.

Once Sony start censoring content that are not perverted or pedophilia in nature then we can discuss your argument more. But for not the content censored I have seen is mostly just that to avoid the "pedo shit"
You forgot to add "perverted or pedophilia in nature in your opinion".

No biggie.

I stick to PC simply because of 60 fps. Sony exclusives don’t interest me, but I’ll always pick up Nintendo for Mario and Zelda.
Pretty much this and I get more than enough console fix from just sticking with Nintendo (been buying their consoles since 1988).

I use to buy all three but that got old real fast from 2001-2008

I really don't run out of things to play with just PC and Nintendo too.

OP,

I just got off the phone with Sony...

He says he wants you back.
He says he's sorry about what happened, he was drunk, emotions were high.
That other player meant nothing to him, it's over now, he was wrong and it's all about you now.

Won't you give him another chance? If not for him, for the baby's sake...
That's right. Sony is with child.

He's waiting, OP. Go to him.

I know for some people the censorship issue/concern is a big deal, but I don't find it is important for me...

I do not have emotional attachments (maybe a few nostalgia moments here and there during my childhood, but not to the product in particular) to any console or game companies. If they made a good game/product, I bought it. I love the Playstations, the same with Nintendo.

If Sony still releasing good PS product, I will buy it simple.

I'm just annoyed that almost everyone of their massive AAA exclusives are open world games. Those get old so fast, especially when you throw in the third party AAA open world games.

Give me more Until Dawn or Bloodborne type games.

Good thing there wasn't any porn to begin with, nor was it censored nudity. Hell, if you want nudity go play RDR2 or GTAV. Both have plenty of sex and full on nudes.

I’m not sure about that. Guerilla Games who creates shooters creating Horizon Zero Dawn was a huge risk. Ratchet and Clank a platformer these days is a risk. Gravity Rush got a well deserved sequel and that’s another risk. Until Dawn, Ghost of tsunami, Gran Turismo, Motorstorm, Bloodborne, Demons Souls, Last of Us, Uncharted to name a few.

Sony probably has the most diverse portfolio out of the big three and seems to give their developers the most freedom. Nintendo is creative as well, but they tend to stick to tried and true, familiar franchises with a few new IP’s in between.

Hopefully, Sony’s newly found controversial direction won’t be too influential to their nationwide presence, creativity process and freedom and they will still cater to ALL regions and gamers.

I definitely agree with but at the same I kind of hate that Sony doesn't properly market their more unique games like Gravity Rush, Puppeteer and Tearaway. They basically sending them to die.

Unless you have some sort of political agenda involving the way these huge companies work. I find it silly to just be done with a company.

Maybe this next generation you prefer the direction of MS, Nintendo, or PC...

That is cool. But I think an honest decision would come down to what works best for you as a consumer. Not simply Sony bad....

Why dot you people even waste your time with politics of a corporate company? All I know, besides the first 4-5 months in PS4s life cycle, the games just kept on pouring. Quality games, quality IPs, I made a 2 month break this summer because of obligations and now I have a solid backlog to catch up to. PS4 literally never slowed down and 5 years later we are getting even more AAA games. I literally cant keep up. I buy games to play them and fill up my free time, I couldnt care less about SONYs politics on censoring lolita games or that they went from $50 to $60 for PSN subscription. If all you do is read social media of a CEO and get into the politics of who owns which rights than Im afraid gaming isnt for you anymore. None of these "problems" people are mentioning are affecting the games I play. For me, SONY is a brand that has the games I want to play, that is the only way I will ever look at them, no interest at all who makes the PS5, who is the current CEO, who said what.

Can't say I really agree with the diversity claim.
When did the last motostorm release? Demons Souls? Really?

Taking the current gen exclusives into consideration...
Almost all of thier AAA releases have been third person single player cinematic games that feature a lot of walking, climbing, and hiding in bushes. It's pretty apparent at this point that Sony's devs have been given Naughty Dog's Toolset and it shows. Bloodborne and Spiderman are both different, but that is because they are third party devs.

While they have released games like R&C and Gravity Rush, I'd like to see more diversity from Sony. Diversity is Sony's weakness when you look at the diversity MS and Nintendo are putting out.

Nintendo having games like BoTW, Smash, and Splatoon alone has more diversity than almost all of Sony.

MS having games like QB, Ori, Sea of Thieves, Cuphead, and Sunset Overdrive alone has more diversity than almost all of Sony.

With Nintendo just beginning to hit it's stride with the switch, and MS aquiring studios left and right, this disparity is only going to grow. Sony's game portfolio needs a genre refresh.

Really? If anyone needs to freshen up their output its Nintendo. I mean since the dawn of time, what do they keep putting out? Platformers. If your argument is that SONY mainly has games that are Uncharted-like, then all nintendo do is platformers. Generation after generation, mario, kirby, Yoshi, donkey Kong, zelda, mario kart....literally any game they put out its about collecting stars, seeds, letters, minimal voice work, usually some made up language, same concept over and over and over like they are stuck in time. Splatoon is just an arena shooter in 3rd person, we had and have those, what is so unique about it, that you shoot paint and not bullets? Maybe SONY games are not your cup of tea, but to say they are the same and how people will get bored of it...sure, Ill let the numbers do the talking. There are 10 billion action movies out there and they still keep making good ones and making cash.

Speaking of the Switch...after year one, name me the big anticipated games its going to release. But cant be a port of the Wii U or an indie game that already exists on 10 other consoles for years. Let me guess a new Donkey Kong, Yoshi World, a new Mario & Luigi, Paper Mario....same games for decades. SONY puts out tons AAA a year and new IPs.
