..Afraid that MS might not be significant enough competition anymore?

PlayStation Nation was also told that they were going to eat crow after the MS reveal

*leans back in chair and sips drink* ahh this should be a good one

True that did happen. But at least you didn't see the Xbox Republic throwing negative left and right before and after the Playstation 4 reveal.

Instead that comment "you will eat crow" refers to the Xbox reveal. Once again Xbox Republic focusing on what they like which is the Xbox.

 




I don't think you and the 3 other people on this site defending the xbox understand, it the entire internet that is trashing the xbox one. Not just Sony fans. What kind of logic is this? This is worse than what PlayStation took in 2006 and it's only been a day. 

The Xbox "Republic" couldn't say too many negative things about the ps4. The usually down play but that expected. The xbox is downright anti-consumer and a bad idea. Screw over you fan's and they will hate you. The last 24 hours have proven this.

I don't see where Microsoft has screwed me over. Pay for the games that cost us millions to make. We just spent 100 million on this game we just ask

that you pay $60 in return, so we have the money to make more games that will cost us millions.

I didn't know people have had an Xbox One for the last 24 hours.

PlayStation Nation is afraid, because there's a reasonable chance that Sony may adopt similar anti-consumer practices.

Also, Vita's achievement is threatened by the Xbox One. The biggest blunder of the generation.



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

I think Playstation Nation guys are loving all the Xbox One anti consumer policies hell even the Wii U guys are loving them too because it makes the PS4 and Wii U look like solid gold.

Personally I think we all consumers should unite and vote with our wallets against this used fees/always online/mandatory kinect policies, they are bad for everyone, we must not let them get away with it. If PS4 does the same I'll be bashing them too.

@Bold.  This is exactly how I feel too.  If sony comes out and announces some of these same restrictions that are in the xbox then I will bash them too.   I like playstations exclusives more so I would probably still buy the ps4, but only for exclusives and the multiplatform games will be played on my pc.

I also like the Playstation exclusives but if Sony does this too I'll buy a Wii U. I really don't want to support this restrictions.

I don't want to support it either, but I can't pass up Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica, Guerilla Games, Quantic Dream.  I would say more, but this thread is not the place.

Seriously now Vita will be affected.

Please explain.

I never knew that disliking a consumer product means that they are afraid of it, news to me.

I don't see anything to dislike about the Xbox One.

DRM or whatever is at the request of the game developers. Not Just Microsoft.

At the same time Both Sony and Microsoft have said it is up to each developer to make that choice.

If you were a game developer what choice would you make. Would you like people ripping off your game.

People should start paying for games, regardless Video games don't come out of thin air.

It takes millions to make a videogame.

If you don't want to pay the premium price for games then just play those cheap indie games or those games on ipad.




"At the same time Both Sony and Microsoft have said it is up to each developer to make that choice."

In Xbox One installation and online registration is mandatory for all retail games.

I saw the installation, but where did microsft say you have to register the game.

And if so what is the big deal I doubt you will have to fill out a form. Just probably hit the register icon.

Once again games cost money game developers are losing billions from used games, something needs to change to make the business more profitable.

Once  again put yourself in the developers shoes.

I might sound corny, but what I am saying is reality. It is a business.

"I saw the installation, but where did microsft say you have to register the game."

You have to register all new games because if not then you can borrow the same disc to all your friends and they can play too.

The registration is how MS makes sure you don't borrow the same disc to 20 other users. The disc only works with the registered user.

 

"Once  again put yourself in the developers shoes.

Please don't try to rationalize and accept this, this is bad for all consumers if you let them get away with this they will push you even more, you have alternatives in Nintendo and Sony like you said this is a business and the competition are a good alternative which doesn't use this anti consumer restrictions. I all for making this industry better and more profitable but not by putting restriction on consumers, Xbox One multimedia features looks great for example.

Thank you very much for saying this. So if Playstation 4 were to have these same restrictions you would still buy it and play the games.

Nice troll. I honestly think Microsoft is done. This gen will probably be their last and it will be back to Sony vs Nintendo.

Meaning it will be back Sony vs. nobody, as the two generations where Sony was far and away the industry leader was also when Nintendo was at its weakest in terms of sales and market share, even though I loved the bulk of what the N64 and GC offered.

Nintendo is far more likely at this point to exit the console industry this generation than M$ does.  It's obvious they're never going to sell anywhere near what the Wii sold during this gen, and with their most intense competition yet on the horizon and hardly anyone talking about the Wii U and its software potential, this thing could be "Dreamcasted" before you know it.  Mario Kart and Smash Bros can only sell so many consoles, and honestly at this point both series are starting to get a bit stale IMO.

Why exactly is it obvious they're "never" going to sell near Wii? Those are some pretty bold statements...

All Nintendo needs to do is go back to the philosphies that made the Wii so successful - simple and intuitive, pure gameplay, over the cinema glitz and complexity that plagues the industry right now, and they'll have another hit on their hands. Problem is Nintendo has regressed back to the Gamecue style of niche games with its Wii U, and the controller is nowhere near as inviting to the mass consumer as the Wiimote. Question is, will they ever go back down that road of the Wii? Their fate is in their own hands..

It certainly isn't going to be the most "intense" competition yet either. Quite the opposite. The competition is going to be the weakest it's ever been. With MS essentially shooting themselves in the foot, and PS4 appealing to a niche of hardcore gamers, complete with what is likely to be another very high price tag, in this current economy of near depression, I fail to see how either of those consoles are going to even put up decent numbers.

So you're basically saying forget about the developers that make the games I enjoy. So what if they lose millions in used game sales.
