Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 logo 'breaks Instagram image likes record for games'

JRPGfan said:

Xbox can reveal a console...wait a week or two, and Sony just comes out with a Logo, and somehow ends up ahead.

Theres clearly a massive differnce in mind share, between the two brands.
(which is ironic considering some ad firm (US), rated xbox brand as being worth alot more than playstation)

Probably because, globally, XBOX has come in last place in every time.  That said, in the US the XBOX brand is much larger than globally.  Further, because MS is transitioning heavily towards the cloud and services.  The XBOX brand will not be limited by console failures as it has been in the past.

Just a site admin pandering to the majority of the users which happens to be Nintendo fans.

They have to hold on to remaining users in some way, I guess. The thought of Nintendo being the sole innovator makes them happy. ¯|_(ツ)_/¯

I didn't know I had become such a master of subtext that I somehow included a plea for Nintendo's sole innovator status into one sentence about the PS5 logo.

I didn't know either.

I take it, your request for a permaban was declined and you are now looking for a method to achieve an exit.

Spot on.

The most effective method is that you go through Hot Topics one thread after another and post pornographic images in every thread along with the threating text that you will keep doing this again and again until you get permabanned.

However, this isn't something I can recommend in good conscience, because while good for you, it's very detrimental to other users who visit this site.

@TruckOSaurus 

I know you won't like the thought of having to meddle with moderator decisions, but can you please make an exception here? All Replicant wants is that he gets a self-requested permaban granted to move on from this site, because the ability to post keeps him coming back and getting involved. So instead of going through all the troubles of a commotion, like rampant trolling, flaming or pornographic material being posted in order to achieve a permaban, are you willing to cut this short with minimal effort and damage to all parties involved?



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

I don't play architectures, I play games. I have very limited interest in the hardware side of consoles but I know that PS3 had some funky processor that made things difficult for developers and that the PS4 did away with that. But for me, the player, PS4 games are better looking, more ambitious PS3 games (because the PS4 is a stronger PS3) and that's a good thing! Sony is the solid rock of the video game industry, I don't expect them to reinvent themselves every generation and I don't want them to, they give me exactly what I expect of them every time: a solid console that keeps up with the times when the previous one is getting old.

Me too, I play games, and I mentioned it as well.

I went on about hardware because you posted about the PS5 being a stronger PS4. But I also covered games not being the case in my post too.

What is a PS3 game from Horizon Zero Dawn? Nier Automata? God of War 4? Dreams?

I'm sorry Trucks, I'm completely cool with you having your own personal view on that, we all do, but when you come saying that about the PS5, which we haven't seen a single new game from yet, it really shows how that it's a preconception.

You seem to be getting the wrong idea from what I'm saying. PS4 can do what PS3 did but Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. I expect the PS5 to be the same, simple as that. I'm not saying there's no original concepts on PS4, a game like Horizon: Zero Dawn would probably never had made it past the pitch meeting in the PS3 days since the scope of it was too ambitious for the capacity of the PS3 but since the PS4 is Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger it became a great success on PS4.

PS - 'You want to be surprised with power? Well here's a given logo, and a concept car?'
Net - 

The car isnt something their gonna sell.... its just a prototype to test camra+lenses+sensors, and A.I systems.

Like it or not, Sony sells alot of lenses/camras and sensors.
In the future cars will be sold with alot of these in them, and testing how they then work, becomes important if you want to lead that market.

Your right though, it was a odd thing to see there imo.

That's part of the point. They aren't selling a logo or car. They're just placeholders for something else, that'll actually be worth getting excited for. Yet look at the response they're getting for just showing up.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Good for Sony that there so much worldwide appeal for the play station brand. I like how moron are comparing Sony and Microsoft and pretending that Sony and Microsoft are on equal footing on the world market and that Sony as only recently been destroying them. The gaming market is normally divided in 4 segment America, Europe, Japan & World. Sony has always dominated Japan, Europe and the World and only during 360 era did Xbox win america over Sony.

It's not a good thing when a corporation doesn't need to deliver and their customer will buy their brand regardless. This kind of reaction to just a logo isn't sending a strong message to Sony that customer demand a good quality product with PS5 with superior services and quality games.

I guess we are all excited to see the final spec on PS5. It's clear that Sony is going for a best bang for your buck and wants to offer $399 consoles. They really have no incentive to give their costumers more then they need to since everyone will blindly pick up what is being offered.

I honestly fail to see why would you remark the PS5 is a stronger PS4 then, because that would be the same for every single console successor.
