Sony Interactive has no personality anymore

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony Interactive has no personality anymore

I'm kind of shocked to hear that someone actually gives a damn about that kind of thing. I mean, liking Xbox because of Phil Spencer ... heh. Reminds me of that episode of "What's Happening" where Dwayne was betting on NFL teams based on their helmet designs.

You be you, I guess. Personally, I care about things like the games and the technology a wee bit more.

Truly, I agree with you, but somehow you managed to make it sound like 1984!



Well I see no problem in it as even if I liked some of the people that presented the show I look more for the content itself.

Seriously though, stop with this nonsense people, Nintendo, Sony, MS and the like only care about money, if you want to fan boy out, do it for their first party studios as that is where all the talented people who actually care are located.

Oh and Shuhei Yoshida and Philly Spencer of course, there are a few straglers in the cotporate chain but respect the chain links and fuck the chain itself, it's only trying to squeeze you for all your money.

Yes, they all want your money, they're businesses after all. That said, you can aim for profit, while still having likable people who care about the industry in top positions as well. 

Sony will be fine without another House or whatnot, it's not a huge deal. But it's kind of disappointing that most of the people who helped make PlayStation are no longer at Sony.

SIE let the games do the talking.

Ok and?

Neither of these ppl make me any more interested or invested in the xbox and Nintend brands. 

Hideo koijma? Mister miyamoto?

Feeling invested in the creative output of designers like Kojima and Miyamoto is not the same as pretending Phil Spencer and Xbox are one in the same thing.



U know what? they got Persona, that's enough, personality? what u talking about?



All the passionate developers that have creative freedom is plenty of personality.

Well, we're almost there.
