You are either really young or not very smart. Xbox 360 and PS3 were way more powerfull in the graphics department yet Wii killed them both because the general public was blown away by the technology not the graphics. I don't think PS4 will have a significant advantage in graphics and if it does it wont sell consoles to the general public. Innovation such as Kinect 2 will...

Wii killed them because 

1) It was the first next gen console on the market

2) The technology was new, whereas Kinect 2 is not new it's just improved.

3) It was always the cheapest next gen console on the market.

Microsoft has none of these things. It's not the first next gen console out, it's not new technology and it's not the cheapest on the market and it won't be for a while (if ever).

And Titanfall hasn't even a release month (and is also on two other platforms, unlike Infamous) but some Sony fans still made fun of its X1 preorder numbers (in this other thread about the same topic). Also: If I was a Playstation or Sony fan (I'm not, I'm just a PS3 owner), I'd be worried about the fact that my most favorite platform has turned from a platforming/RPG system into a FPS/TPS dominated system in just one gen.

You forgot one thing and it's in the thread title...

"USA only"

NA is dominated by FPS/TPS gaming.

Oh also, as a Sony fan, I am not worried that it's turning into a FPS/TPS dominated system (w.e the hell this means). I enjoy shooters =)

Nice try though.

its not a Launch title, and until recently nobody knew when it was coming out. 

Even Titanfall and Destiny (which will surely be huge) have low pre-order numbers because they arent launch titles.

Pure ignorance.

Sony has THE most innovative and unique exclusive games. Look at games like Journey, FlOwer, Rain, Puppeteer, etc. 

For PS4, Rime and The Witness immediately come to mind.

 

And what TPS are you talking about? Uncharted is an adventure game mixed in with TPS, while The Last of Us is an adventure/horror/stealth game with small parts of TPS.

There is no arguing with die hard fanboys on either side especially Sony ones. If you really think that Kinect 2 is just an update from Kinect One you have not been paying attention. There is a reason why they wont gimp the Xbox and sell a version without it. If the do then the have nothing more then an underpowered PC thats moe powerful then their last gen. Basically what Sony has at the moment. This is why I'm angry at Sony. They should have included their camera with every system sold. Instead they gimped it and left it out. So when I get 3rd party titles I will pick them up for my Xbox rather then PS4 because I want the voice/motion option in every game I play. Other then some neat exclusives PS4 will have that I want to own they really dont have anything innovative going for them. Sorry guy but its the cold hard truth. Either way I will continue to buy every console Sony makes regardless how I feel because thats just how I roll.

I actually stopped reading after that bolded sentence. No need to deal with you when you have that kind of a mindset. Cya
