PlayStation hardware sales lull as PS4 storm brews

DarkSpaceDS

5 years ago

I've slowly stopped buying PS3 games for a few years now but this year I've haven't bought a single full priced game and have been living off my backlog.

I just don't want to waste money on soon to be obsolete technology. I'm just about going to be able to buy GTA V as much as I don't want to play it on a PS3. I want the very best version on PS4.

You have answered your own question. No company allows this so what in the hell makes you think Microsoft who is one of the most greediest and conservative companies there is will allow you to share 10 free games to anyone you choose and you wonder why everyone calls you a sheep and fanboy.

Tech Analysis: Watch Dogs on PlayStation 4

DarkSpaceDS

5 years ago

@George-Roper I'm bored right now so I'll feed the troll. First of all the patches and firmwares won't be a problem next gen or on PS4 at least as they will be in the background. As Sony said in their conference if you only have one hour to play on PS4 you will be able to play for that whole hour straight away.

"just keep on buying gimped console hardware and telling yourself that 59.99 for COD8 via PSN is really great value for money. Then, after a few years of paying that kind of money"

I don't buy COD games you jackass. I rarely even buy full price games anymore. I wait till they drop in price and I get to keep a hard copy unlike PC.

"it will dawn on you that you could have saved hundreds and hundreds of pounds and that, actually the original cost of the console is only the thin end of the wedge."

Like I said I save money anyway buy buying games at the price on how I value them. So fuck off with your ultra 100GB ram PC. All I care about is if a game is good and fun. If it runs well thats a bonus.

@George-Roper "
Then consider that in just another year or two, the PS4 hardware will be even more outdated and you'll have no option to upgrade it. On PC, you could throw another 8GB of ram in for peanuts. Or add another couple of hard drives. Or replace the graphics card."

This is exactly why people prefer consoles over PC. People don't want all that complex stuff like changing ram and or replacing the graphics card.

People want a device ready built that can play any game that will be made for it. This is why consoles are so mass market but you can't understand that because your just another angry PC virgin thats still living with his parents at the age of 40 years old.

Its funny how Eurogamer is now praising Apple when they bashed MS for doing recently with the Xbox One.

How did they manage to make the PS4 smaller than the current PS3 slim ? and with no power brick which is impressive.

Just imagine how small and compact the PS4 slim will be. Almost a PS2 slim size.

More exclusives aren't a bad thing but what is a bad thing is the amount of side stories and spin-offs right at the end of the gen. People want full sized, AAA, long games.

This R&C game is a total cash grab. I'm amazed with how many Ratchet games we have had this gen but not a single full fledged Jax and Daxter game.

@CybaRJ "
"Microsoft are corporate scum."

As opposed to Sony? Or Nintendo? Or any other billion dollar multinational?"

I knew someone was going to say that. Yes Sony and Nintendo want money just like every other company that exists. Thats the who point of a business to make money but Microsoft treat not only gamers and devs with such disrespect and contempt that is the reason they are scum.

Sony and Nintendo at worst are the lesser of two evils. Microsoft along with EA are corporate scum. They go out of their way to piss people off. A business doesn't have to disrespect its customers like they are just cash in the tills.

@FuzzyDuck Fair enough. Honestly I barely ever hear any noise from the PS3 unless I try to focus on the actual noise as I'm immersed in the game I'm playing.

You could increase the TV volume to drown out the noise but I can see why it would get annoying.

@FuzzyDuck "
Yep, it was RDR that pushed me towards purchasing a 360 to sit with my PS3 - although it wasn't the actual sub par in game performance, just the constant accessing of the PS3's optical drive really became distracting. Couldn't soak up the atmospheric parts because of the noise, and even playing with headphones was no good as I have an open back set. Similarly, LA Noire doesn't get played much."

Since there is an 8GB mandatory install there should be no problems with the PS3 acting as a typewriter since its accessing data from the HDD not the actual disc.

The Saints Row games had mandatory installs and don't even hear a beep while playing them. GTA V should be no different.

Honestly I'd prefer free online play than no noise coming from the PS3.

@DaltonBay Rockstar really are in a league of their own. IMO I think they are a step above even Naughty Dog. Whereas ND do create linear games like Uncharted which look impressive its even more impressive that Rockstar can create a open world game looking as good as it does.

Anyone can make a Saints Row type game whereas no one can emulate Rockstar's games.

I really can see this game looking this good tbh. GTA V seems like it took Max Payne 3's graphics and used that in an open world.

Lets not forget how good GTA IV and RDR looked on consoles and those were years ago. This is now at the end of the gen so Rockstar should have loads of experience with the 360 and PS3.

If that gameplay vid isn't the PS3 version then I'll be disappointed. The graphics aren't mind blowing. Great but not mind blowing. If it looks and runs worse then that video then that would be very disappointing.

This is what we need in the games industry. A bit of truth and honesty. If the dev doesn't think a platform will be profitable to them and admit to gamers thats why they can't release a game I would be fine with that.

Its just most corporate companies are pure scum for example EA who just lie to gamers faces with marketing speak.

This is a good thing for all gamers even if your a 360 gamer. It proves that gamers want games all the time not just at the start and during the current gen.

Its a bonus that its a new IP. I'm sick and tired of devs thinking all we want is sequels.
