The Playstation 4 and My Desire For Justification





So the Playstation 4.

After much frustration with Sony's shitty stream and Gametrailers' slightly less shitty stream, I ended up sighing a defeated "fuck it" and read all about Sony's next black box that plays video activities on Destructoid.

So what I gather is that THIS box gives us a couple more pixels to look at, and in turn, more old men to look at uncomfortably. The number 4 also tells us we should have friends and that we should share how awful we are at Kunuk or whatever the hell it's called to these friends Sony says we should have. Also, a share button is on there for kicks because... sharing is... caring?

Now, I actually think the Playstation 4 looks pretty fuckin' dope. It's got good graphics, but not updated enough to phase out my Wii U (Thank god, I got scared there for a second). The controller looks really comfortable and nice to have in my fat hands. I just hope that touchpad doesn't only get used by developers to make me swipe to knife or any of the shit Vita owners have to go through with most of the Vita library.

The sharing aspect could be something I can get behind. I've always wanted to stream or capture video of my games (winkwinkiwannadoayoutubeshowwinkwink) easily, and this looks like a pretty fuckin' easy way to do it.

In fact, this whole sharing/social network/playing with friends business kind of reminds me of my precious Wii U and Miiverse, just a few steps further. We'll just have to see if that's how it pans out or not.

Oh! Let's talk about games now!

inFamous: Second Son looks cool and Killzone Shadow Fall looks... like Killzone. Diablo III doesn't interest me in any way, Destiny looks cool, the old man Quantic Dream showed me still creeps me out, Watch Dogs is on Wii U, and Square Enix will have a game at E3 that we won't play until 2017.

Now I want to see more, Sony. Impress me at E3, Sony. Sell me a god damned black box. I just want to see more inventive and crazy as shit games. I just want to see more.

Here's to waiting for E3.
