Forums - Gaming Discussion - Will NeXtbox and PS4 Need Major Unique Selling Points?

Lafiel said:
the PS4 will likely need Sony franchises as selling point, so I really hope they have Gran Turismo 6 along maybe with one of their cinematic games lined up for launch - then they might actually win the european wallets

If Gran Turismo 6 and Uncharted 4 are on a £350-400 PS4 at launch Sony would win europe in a heartbeat, provided everything else about the console was at least OK.  GT6 isn't going to launch with it though...

No, I don't think so. Although it would be nice. People will buy the systems without some kind of unique hook, or "gimmick," which is quickly becoming my least favorite video game buzzword after "hardcore" and "casual."

If the systems provide access to great games, and great experiences, they will probably sell well. I like motion controls and touch-screen technology, but ultimately I want great games. That's why I'm a proud owner of all seventh-generation systems, and will be a proud owner of all eighth-generation systems.

Also: I would like to see Microsoft invest more in game development before the next Xbox launches, but it sounds like that is happening from what I read in the OP. Of the big three, Microsoft is hurting most for exclusive content. I don't think Kinect 2.0 and Halo 5, 6, 7, 8 are going to be enough to win next generation.

Aaaah I remember this article =)

I think they might have to get an USP; if only because the competition will get it. What if PS720 only uped the graphics, and nothing else? And what if these games could get ported to Wii U and actually be GOOD ports. Which system would you get? An expensive game console with great graphics, or a console which have other functionalities, good graphs and is cheaper?

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Think I'll go with great since I don't care much for their tablet controller. 



I was walking down along the street and I heard this voice saying, "Good evening, Mr. Dowd." Well, I turned around and here was this big six-foot rabbit leaning up against a lamp-post. Well, I thought nothing of that because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name.

yes and those unique selling points are the most important selling points, there called games, i dont know if you ever heard of them before but apparently they are very important for gamers

Then they would suck, but those aren't going to be the only advancements or innovations even if the input device is the same, because in todays world I would say the system's OS and UI is just as important as the hardware, and I'm very confident they'll have a slew of new features and refinements. And first party titles of course.

It's not in Sony's nature to pioneer innovation. They'll probably focus on making the next system integrated with all media and social networking just like microsoft.

this.......*giggles*

I see 4 USP's for the Wii U. Of course their 1st party games. A no brainer. But the controller COULD become something great; not saying it will, but if developers use it I think it could be a real USP. Then we have the Miiverse, which could become a pretty cool feature. But what I love with Wii U is Nintendo TVii! If that shit's coming to Europe I'll be so happy :D

Those aren't just small "advancements or innovations" and "new features and refinements"; those things could sell consoles. If sony and MS only refines what they already got, they'll be left in the dust by Nintendo. They need to bring something new.

I expected Xbox3 to recognize me and call by by name and cook me dinner.
