I don't know about others but I enjoyed the Sony press conference last night. I have bought the PS1, 2 and currently own version 3 to. Thankfully the conference contained less filler than their E3 conferences but it was still a bit too tech heavy at the start and took a while to get to the point. Some impressive technology on show and if they can pull those kind of graphics off then the "Steam box" has some competition. PS4 will literally just be a PC in a box available at a consumer price. The games on show (although looking a little on rails) were impressive, I think the anticipation for Watch Dogs just got bigger!
One minor thing I have found with most aspects of the gaming community is the fear of change or anything different. The shit being flung at this conference was just astounding, "it'll never work". Why does the gaming community surround itself in such negativity? Shouldn't we be embracing new technology and new ideas? Those things to me are exciting! It's not something I should be fearful of. Clearly the developers looks ecstatic to have a bit more freedom on the console platform and excited that they can now speak after all the secrecy is now out in the open. But again, we will have to endure another Sony Vs Microsoft dick measuring contest in the near future as the media love to competitions!
I will be keeping an eye out on this PS4 technology to see what else new and inventive it can bring to the table without rehashing old ideas.
Don't fear change, embrace it! read
