Sony knocked it out of the friggin' park (Shortblog)


It's appropriate that Sony's conference was after Microsoft's, because it seems like EVERYTHING they said and did was tailored specifically to counter everything Microsoft said to piss its former customers off.

No online requirements for retail games AT ALL.

No mention of forced motion controls or cameras watching you.

A cloud-based service that's COMPLETELY optional.

Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV.


PlayStation Plus members get PS4 games at launch.


The only negatives I can think of here are a) the console looks like ass, just like the Xbox One, and b) the fact that Sony's going from free online play to charging. This indeed sucks, and I hate the fact that it happened, but at the very least, PlayStation Plus is a hell of a lot more worth paying for than Xbox LIVE Gold (which will still NOT be free on the Xbox One). At least I won't feel like I'm paying JUST to play online, like I did with the Xbox 360 whenever I had Gold, which wasn't often.

As far as I can tell, the PS4 has the freedom that the Xbox One and Steam don't offer, and it has the power and the usability that the Wii U lacks. It seems like this generation is going to be an EXTREMELY easy choice as far as non-handheld gaming systems go.

About pedrovay2003one of us since 2:15 PM on 11.14.2006

Name: Peter
Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a five-day late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
Degree: Communication (with a writing emphasis)

I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.

As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two years old. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.
