Forums - Sony Discussion - What does Sony have to do to make you NOT want the PS4?

What are the types of things Sony could do to the PS4 that would make you not buy it. 

I'm dreading the fact that they may go motion controls, if they try to pull something off like the Wii...I dunno what I'll do. I want my controller with buttons.

Make the PS4.

Gilgamesh, the Wii controller has buttons, just in case you didn't know (and you probably didn't).

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

Really? I thought it was a brick with batteries that people waved around at the screen.

Losing third party Japanese RPG developer support like Nintendo did few generations ago.

The sad thing is that I can believe that you are telling the truth here.

Make you're games tied to you're PSN account, Charge over $500-600 for it, even $400 is cutting it imo.

Not "want" you say... well it would just have to have a poorer library of games compared to it's cost than the next Xbox. Unless they price it at 500 and the Xbox is 250 I am doubtful that will happen though, because Microsoft doesn't really have any first party games whilst Sony does have at least some desirable franchises.

Your question in the body of the OP is different though, there you are asking what could Sony do that would make me not buy it... for which the answer is price it above 100-150 (where it lies in that boundary will depend on how much the Wii U is) There are other factors of course that may move the price limitation, or something like anti-used game tech/always-online bullshit/subscription for online would probably put me off entirely. This is still assuming the PS4 has a half-decent game library.

As it is I currently have no plans to even buy the Wii U, but if I do decide to join the 8th gen most of any decision I make regarding me buying the PS4 rests in Nintendo's hands... in other words Nintendo will have to really screw up the Wii U for me to look at the PS4 first.

I think it's time for systems to have almost no load times. If the games on the PS4 require an install, there should be barely any loading. Even when some games on the PS3 installed, there were longer than average load times. If the console has long loading, I won't buy it.

Call me picky, but I feel that once a game boots up, it should be smooth sailing from there on.

To set the record straight I've played all the popular Wii games...no interest.

No, you didn't and yes, you have no interest. That I can believe.
