    Read the thread. General consensus without saying it. You get it - context.

    Not sure what I said is old or requires any contention - but I do agree with you that people alluding to it is old.

    I don't see a problem with this as long as they are making money. They could easily make you download an app to your ps3(no ps4 access)/ps4 so that you have to register a console in order to play 1st party titles on the pc. Turn on your system, run the app, then you can connect to the pc. That way people have to keep the console.

    As for cell phones, ect., if they don't have a controller then certain games will just be impossible to play.
    That's a good idea actually.

MS may have less exclusives but the ones they do have I like better and I can say that because unlike you I've played both consoles exclusives. Just saying.
    Oh I've played 360 before, while I was still in NZ just after I got the PS3 and just before I came to Austria. Me and my neighbor would swap consoles one or two weekends a month for about 3 months. I played some Gears 2, Halo 3 and FIFA 09. Admittedly I haven't played the installments after. I was never an FPS fan until Move & Sharpshooter so Halo had little chance on merit of taste and Gears was Ok but the characters were a real turn off for me. Those games were 50% of MS's meat since then...

    If he had had some other of the earlier exclusives, I may have had quite a different impression of MS's console, but I played what was recent back then and what was recent then is what's recent now, albeit a few installments along.

    Agreed. It reminds me of those people who always say the gaming press has an agenda against Sony and MS is paying them off or in the NPD threads they would say that the 360 is outselling the PS3 there simply because Americans are stupid. lol Both "camps" have their double standards and idiocy but each of the groups claim that its only the other one thats guilty. Its both amusing but sad at the same time.

    MOve and Sharpshooter got you into FPS gaming? Interesting.

    I've always been weary of using motion based stuff for more precision-based gaming (I guess because of the Wii).

    Hmm.. just quote me bro, just quote me!

    I don't think I said anything that was excusing Sony/berating MS of anything though did I?

    It was a pretty short post....

    Ok, thats cool. We both like what we like and theres no such thing as a wrong preference imo. And despite my preference I do still enjoy my PS3 and Vita alot and would never give them up. And tbh I dont even know who I'm rolling with next gen until I get all the details.

    What i meant by "getting old" is that just because people voice concern on what's happening doesn't mean mean people are hoping for sony to somehow fail. That's an assumption you came up with because i don't see any post where anyone is dooming sony. There is obvious concern on where they stand with PS4.

    I didn't assume anything. I've just read through the first page (maybe I assumed for the consecutive pages, sure)- but it's more or less the same.

    Maybe you don't see it because you are too embedded into that mindset to do so? Hey, I have nothing personal against that.

    But that, is getting old.

    You're assuming that I'm assuming something incorrect.

    or maybe you see something that's not there because you are too embedded in your mindset.

    Yeah tbh I didnt see anybody saying that in this thread either. As for me I just want to see an actual PS4 home console and not just some cloud based service. Thats my only concern in this. But Sony certainly isnt "doomed."

    My gut feeling is there will be a PS4. But it wont be much more than a unified PC archetecure. Thats a good thing I think.

    I cvan also see PS4 games being only for PS for 6 months or somehting then allowing them on PSN as PC verisons.
    Much like a lot of mulitplat/Xbox games are.

    At the end of the day, if they can increase their revenue in software beyond people with PS4's they would be stupid not to, but I also think they need the incentive for people to buy one.

    I agree. Sony would need to find that sweet spot between extra software revenue and retaining the consumer's incentive to buy their console. Not sure what that would be though if Sony's first party games were all just timed exclusives.

    If they do this right it could pay off big time. It also could get more people to buy their TVs.
