    No response needed. Sony said that E3 was 'one good day' but that they need to keep the momentum up and not rest on their laurels. What MS did wasn't any kind of serious threat to Sony, it just took the noose away from Xbone's neck and gave it a fighting chance at competition this gen.

    Actually, I know how Sony can respond...

    They just need to make a one minute commercial of Mark Cerny just talking about the PS4. He will hypnotize the populace.

    Sony doesn't need to respond. They've been upfront with what their console has to offer, it has better overall value, and it never attempted to throw it's potential customers under the bus. Simple. From here on out it will just need to be simple ad campaigns and marketing. Remind the populace where the best place to game is. Don't try to sell the public on gimmicks in order to move units.

    It will be a matter of advertising in the US and UK. The Playstation brand has it in the bag everywhere else in the world. The negative press will remain until launch.

    What Sony did there though wasn't the same kind of catch up. It was certainly a method to increase their profits, which follows the plan Microsoft has had going for years, true. Sony also has made the change gradually however, making it an option, and now still making it optional, just paywalling multi-player. Sony isn't blocking off access to most online features, just a very small handful (if not just the one feature as I understand it). Microsoft, however, was playing catch-up in that before the systems even released, they had fallen behind. That said, I see nothing wrong in adopting other policies, especially when they benefit the gaming demographic. So sure, there's been adaptations and catch-up, but it should be leading to a better gaming ecosystem over all.

    Agreed. Mark Cerny is a very charismatic individual. I think he and Jack are my favorite guys in the industry. They just seem the most likable. (As a Sony fan, I may be slightly biased, however)

    I just don't believe I should have to pay more on top of the $60 I paid for a game, that $60 should grant me access to the full game, not just 50% of it. Pretty much the reason I didn't get a 360.

    You pay $60 to play any game you own online, to get 5 free games each month, to get discounts, to get beta invites, etc.

    It's not as if you have to buy PS Plus each time you buy a new game.

    I always said that I wouldn't buy a PS4 if I had to pay for online gaming...but with PS+ you get more than your money's worth so I don't mind at all. Jack said Sony would be working to add even more value to Plus aswell. If I were paying just for the ability to play online and access apps, $#@! off!

    They don't need to respond to DRM free and no internet connection required, cause they already had it on the PS4, and although this move from MS definitely gives them points and maybe more potential buyers, I still don't think it's good enough to even match the PS4. And the only way Sony would be willing to give us free online playing would be if MS did too.

    You are contradicting yourself there. The way you said it initially, paying to play at all not matter what the cost/features would be a no go for you. But then you say since they give you various features, paying is worth it.

    All I 'm saying is a lot of people claimed they would never go along with paying anything to play online, but seem to have reversed their stance (typically in the name of "value"). There is only one member (that I can recall atm) that has stood firm with their stance.

    But what's wrong with people changing their minds? You can be as firm and stubborn as you want. There are enough people that will pay their annual fee and it really is your loss if you decide not to.

    Sony can respond and send a strong message if they bring the games, exclusives specifically. The PlayStation 4 showed a lack of exclusives at E3. They can make up for it by showcasing more exclusives at the TGS and Gamescon. Oh, and by the way, bring QUALITY exclusives just like you did with the PS3. If Sony does this, the PS4 will win this war.

    People can change their minds, it's the timing of when they do that matters.

    The only thing they have to do is make good games IMO. All the extra flash doesn't interest me. Keep it simple.

    The best thing for them to do is to remind people that they did it first. Play up the "Greatness Awaits" slogan, and continue asking devs to speak up on their behalf.

    It seems like every week there's a new article of devs saying how great Sony is treating them now. Keep that up. Turn it into a weekly VLOG or something. I don't really think people know how much bigger Sony's rosters is. That's still something to talk about. Enough so to where they even made it a slide at E3, they almost tripled their support from PS3 to PS4. Talk about it. Show cool and innovative stuff. Show footage from their offices. Actively talk about the changes you're trying to develop for PS+ and Gaikai.

    I'm sure they will, when the window is too small to change course before launch.. because Microsoft has been copying them at every turn. From the PS+ style IGL till November to this latest 180. So, basically, keep doing what they're doing. But do it BETTER. Communicate with the fans as they did around the DRM thing. And have the makers of the games do the rest for them. Because, bottomline, the longevity of their Base is going to be based on who people perceive as having better games and more games.

    It wouldn't hurt to keep reminding people that the others guys don't let devs self-publish. Even if they change up. Lol, it still just solidifies the ability to market, "Run with the leaders, they just follow us" lol "Greatness Awaits." Don't be arrogant, just state (what appears to be) the obvious.

    If they'd include free PSN for a year for people that pre-order the console, that'd sell loads. Probably.
