Sony already announced they are going 3rd party. PS Now will be streaming PS4 games to PC in the next few months. In time we should have Sony games on basically every device that has Netflix. Not sure how much more 3rd party they can get. Unless you want them to stop making their own hardware altogether.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Play all the games --> decide yourself what hardware you want and how it should look and which controller you want and no costs to play online.

hmmm... OBVIOUSLY I would love it

I didn't even think about paid online, but you're right. Thanks for pointing that out.

Really nothing you couldn't do with PC.

How well works this with input lag? I'm not sure that works well if you haven't the best online.

Sure in terms of power but that changes the argument from "Sony should go 3rd party" to "PC's are better than consoles." You're basically saying every console manufacturer should go third party if that's the case.

There are advantages a console has over PC for gaming.

What are these advantages? I know for the argument of simple playing, but with modern PCs and Steam and the like gaming on PC is easy as never before.

If Microsoft could be trusted not to try and pull any stupid anti-consumer crap and all the Japanese 3rd parties followed Sony to Xbox/PC then sure, I could get on board with that. But Microsoft can't be trusted and Japanese 3rd parties aren't going to start releasing on Xbox/PC just because PS ain't around anymore. They'd go Nintendo (boo, no achievements!) or even worse mobile, instead.



Yay. More retaliation threads. That's exactly what we need.

Then Nintendo should go PC too (although probably mobile is an even better fit for them). MS really cannot do much. They don't have the means to control the PCs anymore. If they'd try anything, it only would them make look bad.

It's a no-brainer for the graphics whores to get the very best graphics on PC.

And considering the trend of MS and Sony consoles becomig faux-PCs, coupled with Valve's push to make Steam a couch-and-TV-friendly experience, they really aren't offering the advantages of consoles anymore.
