Loading... hold tight!
Given Sony's history (just look at their behaviour during the PS2 and PS3 generation) I don't really believe House's statement. All these suits are the same. They want to make the most money they can using any tactics they can get away with. When the public made it clear MS wouldn't be getting away with their policies Sony made sure theirs were different.
Why? You don't care about graphics. You bought a PS4! If you cared about graphics, you wouldn't need me to explain how to build a PC and what parts are good.
Interestingly, if Sony had gone with 4GB and Microsoft with 8GB, I don't think Microsoft would have had to change a thing - they'd still be at the higher price, with Kinect and have all the digital DRM. People would have just put up with it because it was the more powerful device. (At least I think so.)
Well thanx to a healthy competitive console market, they went for the best they could afford. Good for us consumers.
"Competition really pushes everyone, Microsoft and us, to do better," Yoshida concludes. "I think in the end the consumers will win."
Also it's launch date parity, not any other parity.
Well the problem was that MS set the major precedent last gen
sony seems to be worse than M$ these days with this exclusive DLC shit.
The visual fidelity they can produce, is not a significant difference.
OMG, we've been through this before! Could you please detach yourself from my nutsack?
Remember State of Decay? Remember how it ran at about 15-25fps? Exactly.
1) Not just one repair company but the Game Informer survey as well. That's not anecdotal evidence, sorry.
Actually the reported YLOD failure rates have been much higher than that:
Joystiq lists it at 10% in 2009.
An Australian hardware repair company lists it at between 10- 15% based on their repair history.
You are also conveniently ignoring the disc read errors the PS2 suffered from. Sony were successfully sued by consumers in the US. The fact that a class action lawsuit was successful should be an indication that the incidence was not trivial!
Since the 360 (Xenon) and PS3 (Cell) both use the same PPC codebase we've been told time and time again there is nothing particularly difficult about developing for the Cell CPU.
Behave son. You're so pro Sony you can't see for all the shit in your eyes that's coming out your mouth.
Microsoft got what they deserved, and I've criticised them to the n'th degree for it,
but Sony was equally disgraceful in terms of their attitude towards customers, but they never got punished for it, because the law wasn't against them at those failure rates.
Sony, who carried on happily ignoring YLOD failures in most cases.
They were arrogant. Thought all the developers would have to adapt to their unique hardware design, as they'd been dominant in last gen
They didn't get away with it easily really did they? Cost them fortune.
It was the sad fact that Sony fecked up so royally with ps3 launch and SDK,tools etc that MS were able to get away with it really. The alternative was just not strong enough to tempt people away at that point
This is so much like the PS3 last gen where the devs just did not have the proper tools to make the system sing. Microsoft has worked hard and has a roadmap to continue to make the system batter and more efficient. You add this and the eventual addition of DX12 plus more games using the dedicated servers and we will be closer to seeing the full potential of the system.
It cost $1.05 - $1.15bn to repair consoles and fix the ones in stock.
Cost them best part of $4billion in warranties and repairs.
How's it for us gamers, if the developers cant utilise it properly, and doesnt fit real world game developer requirements??
Also the irony of your comment after ps4 is about as generic a hardware design as a console has ever been.
Hated V-Rally but really loved the Colin McRae titles.
Respawn saying they were looking for an exclusivity deal to focus their development of the game.

I'm sure, you'll spin that somehow. :D
Sony need to Stop lying to people. This content is Timed exclusivity.
Sony are playing a game to make it seem alot of the games shown at E3 were Exclusive, missing out the term 'first on playstation' or 'Timed Exclusivity'.
It's been well documented that Sony were offered to fund Titanfall but they wanted it on the Vita, and refused to give out the information on the PS4. Which is fine, SCE know how to keep their house in order as the current market shows.
You indicated that this was the same as paying to produce exclusive content, which it isn't. This game will still come to both consoles, just one group will have fancier tassels on their bicycles.
Titanfall would likely fail to be made.
As I seem to recall apparently MS saved Titanfall by actually funding its development. That's far different from buying exclusive content (which es I know MS has and also continues to do)
it would be interesting to know how much money Sony have thrown at Activision/Bungie to procure these 'exclusives'!
Pong or Ping, I forgot
