Sony Explains Why PS4 is More Fun than Xbox One

Shuhei Yoshida has come out to explain just why the PlayStation 4 is a more appealing option than the Xbox One.

 


 

The closer we get to the new generation of consoles, the more similar the two pieces of hardware look. Microsoft has changed what feels like dozens of core aspects about the Xbox One, bending on the DRM policies and not requiring the Kinect to be attached at all times. Really, the average consumer won’t be able to tell too much of a difference other than price this November, but Sony believes the fundamentals it’s been preaching since day one will make the difference.

Speaking to GameIndustry International, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida pushed the idea that the PS4 is both the most powerful, and most fun, console launching this November.

We continue to say what we've been saying since February - PS4 is really designed for consumers and focused on how people want to play games. At the same time, we've really made sure that it's hardware which game developers will enjoy making games on,” Yoshida said. “We want consumers to look at how much fun it is to use this system, not just for playing games but for finding out about games and sharing the experience with other people.

“Of course, we have large studios, Sony Worldwide Studios creating exclusive titles for PS4, as well as what is, for me, one of the most exciting aspects of PS4 - the amount of indie people who have expressed interest and are already making games for PS4, as well as PS Vita. The ease of use, the performance... It's very powerful hardware. We believe this is the most powerful console ever made. The content, the games available, the usage of PS4 surrounding games... That's the message we've been communicating, and we'll continue to do that.

The PS4 will be launching in North America Nov. 15, and most other territories a few weeks later.

They believe it is. Looks like teh Cloud has them worried.



Sony has never gave his back on consumers in fact I think not a single comercial company on their sane mind would want to do that, consumers are their main income, is not rocket science you know :P, but for MS and his monopolistic ways did that they went and put their own rules, rules or features consumers never asked for and not only that, they have no shame , for example that mattrick guy said, "don't have online so then go and buy a 360 that's an offline device ", seriously ?.

and there's the 180 thing, do you guys believe at MS they will actually stay true to its words ? I definitely not.

How could they did "monopolistic" things since you had alternatives if you didn't want the Xbox One? I'm sorry, this does not compute. If you didn't like it, don't rant about it. Go buy something else.



I agree with OP quote - A nice simple message that has not changed with out the bullshit confusion. A vision set in stone.



I don't give a shit about rich ass execs telling me what is more fun, I am getting a ps4 because it has a brighter future

The part I bolded is taken way out of context. He explained how Microsoft has other devices that will be supported. The way people type it, like you just did, make it sound like he just gave everyone the finger. That is not how he said it at all.

Mattrick said a lot of dumb things on his way out, but this is the one thing that people take way out of context.

Wow.   So you're complaining that Microsoft went and made rules that consumers didn't like... then in the same post, you complain that Microsoft changed their stance?  Plus, you have no idea what monopolistic means.  Now, if Microsoft bought out Activision and EA, you might have a point.
