    Edge: Sony trumps Microsoft again with a confident comprehensive showcase at ...

    After a series of turnarounds and with FIFA and Call Of Duty in its corner, following Microsoft was a more difficult task for Sony at Gamescom than at E3. All PlayStation had to do was turn up and collect the spoils back in June, but here, with significantly revised competition and the temperature rising ever higher as we lead into launch, it felt like Sony needed to remind us exactly why it has gathered so much goodwill with its new console.

    It succeeded, with what seemed like an unending list of new indie games, some promising new partnerships, a neat demo of Vita’s Remote Play capabilities, price cuts for Vita and PS3, and a PS4 release date. It even found time for a dig at Microsoft’s string of reversals and compromises. By the conclusion of Sony’s comprehensive press showcase, the crowd almost seemed weary from the need to applaud each and every new announcement.

    ...

    By this point Sony was tossing out major announcements for fun – Minecraft will be a PS4 launch game; PS3’s 12GB model will now cost €199 / $199; players that have bought a cross-gen PS3 game will be able to download the PS4 version for a reduced price when they upgrade.

    Then the real crowd-pleasers. Faced by a deluge of announcements, crowd applause had grown a little weary so an obvious dig at Microsoft added some spice to the finale: “Where others have shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistent,” said Andrew House, confirming that PS4 would be launched in 32 countries in total. In America, PS4 will be launched on November 15, with Europe to follow on November 29.

    Microsoft might have touted the industry’s two biggest series alongside its console at Gamescom earlier today, but that offering was, once again, trumped by the sheer volume and integrity of Sony’s announcements. PS4 remains the frontrunner in the next-gen race, a console that boasts the more creative and interesting approach to next gen play, a truly coherent featureset and – throughout it all – vitally, a lower price.
    Thought both had good showings tbh. Even tho ms didn't stream. They seem to have made the right noises this time around.

    After rewatching it, I didn't find it disappointing at all since it's GamesCom.

    I wouldn't say Sony trumped Microsoft. I'd actually say both were disappointing at Gamescom minus a couple things.

    I liked seeing the UI for PS4 and the release date while expected was nice.

    All in all, still can't wait to get my hands on a PS4 and an Xbox One.
    Why are they biased towards Sony?

    Even when I purchased a Digital Issue the reviews on my phone of this magazine were "Avoid. Sony Sony Sony. Sony can't do no wrong with Edge in comparison with Microsoft".

    Doesn't matter if one publication is biased towards them but when others have the same opinion of the event then I think bias has nothing to do with it

    Edge historically has been much harder on PS3 stuff than 360.

    Just reminding you guys.

    I couldn't care what the article says I'm only pointing out what I know.

    I don't favor any system over the other.

    Nice try.

    Regardless, $#@! Edge.

    Those guys just come across as try-hards attempting to sound elite.

    Not poor, boring but what did anybody truly expect? this isn't E3, all the major stuff had already been announced, they still did great though.

    Funny that cause I've never been a fan of a console. I always get both and have just as much time invested in either. Believe what you will and keep throwing baseless accusations.

    As you already saw I'm not the only one in this thread who made that observation. And being a dual console owner doesn't absolve you from bias. We all have one console that we have more of a preference/bias towards. And you cry about accusations yet you were quick to jump on me to accuse me of "defending."

    Like I said, believe what you will. I don't have a preference. I was a Sony gamer first and foremost since PS1 and hated the original Xbox. I wasn't even going to get an Xbox 360 but the wait for a PS3 became too much and I purchased one. Then I got a PS3 in April 2008 and have enjoyed both consoles equally. I do have a preference to Xbox Live as a service but not the Xbox 360. I have never preferred a company or console over the other though.

    Facts are nice aren't they?

    What facts? All I see is you denying what we both know to be true.

    Whatever man, I'm done helping you derail this thread. You don't know me and you won't ever. Know this though, you're wrong.

    Sorry Crow but I don't think emmerich is biased towards any console, he is definitely more level headed than the other supposedly dual console owners

    He is one of the honest ones on here that call it like it is and I respect him for that, unlike the spineless ones

    Thanks man, appreciate someone who notices. I don't see the point in favoring a single brand over another although I do understand people do and its really up to them. I just don't get it.
