This is what I'm thinking.
From what we've seen so far, the graphics aren't that
great of an improvement from the current gen's graphics.
maybe I'm skeptical because I'm not a gamer, but this could have been held off until 2014, IMO. Sony could have let Microsoft show their hand with their next XBOX, then drop the PS4. But that's just me.
Thats exactly what Sony DOESN'T want to do. Thats how they shot themselves in the foot last time.
Sony needs to come out of the gate running and hitting hard. Nintendo already jumped out there, Sony needs to be next, and they need to deliver hard this holiday season.
Microsoft needs to make sure they don't drop the ball. Because the PS4 graphics are looking amazing.
I'm seriously considering stopping PC gaming once I get a PS4

No one said, "Oh man, that game looks fun I can't wait to play that!" All people were hyping up were the graphics. Graphics don't sell systems!
Sony needs to provide consumers with something that keeps their attention. Their vision on what they will actually do with the system was muddled for me.
They focused a lot of energy talking about features they were HOPING
to deliver on the PS4. For example.. the Gaikai streaming service. They HOPE
to one day stream live games to an already defunct PS Vita. Am I the only one who thinks this is a bad idea? Who would want to pay extra money for a failed system in hopes Sony supports this functionality?
Kill Zone and the rest of their games will reach the graphical prowess they showed yesterday. Sony is notorious for showing glorified tech demos only to release a game with half of the visual quality. They did it with the original Kill Zone for the PS3.
And my biggest problem is the price. Despite what anyone says, one of PS3's biggest flaws was the price. Most consumers are not paying $500+ for a gaming console. Sony needs to release this thing at around $400 for it to penetrate the market and take away steam from the Wii U and XBox. With the current specs it doesn't look like that will be the case.
I'll take a wait and see approach when it comes to the PS4 and at the end of the day games is all that matters. If the Sony can deliver the great games they'll be alright.
Thats because this was the Sony PS4 hardware unveiling event. Not E3.
You can't base your opinion on the hardware based off of the Titles you saw. You HAVE to base it on the graphics and the capabilities of the games. Not the games content, thats what E3 is for.
We can't say "None of those games look like the type of games I'd play so I don't like it".
Sony isn't making the games. They're making the hardware.
Everyone is talking about games this, games that, blah blah. This is about the CONSOLE. Would you judge a television by the shows you can watch? No. Judge the hardware by its capabilities, not by the developers who have nothing to do with the hardware.
But aside from that. This will be copped on RD. It looks amazing, and hopefully we'll get to judge the games at launch during E3. I can't wait to get this thing up and running this holiday season.
I can't wait to see what Microsoft has in store. I'm not banking on one console at all. Never have, and I never will. I will have all next gen consoles, again...
Gran Turismo will show us what this console can really do... Can't ******g wait...Edited by PRIME - 2/21/13 at 11:05pm
