Well, the catch phrase "Better wait for the nextgen version of the games in this video" could probably hurt their sales until November.

I highly doubt all of them would have day one 4K bell and whistles patches. Most likely just 1440p / 4K checkerboard PS4 pro version emulated this November.

Best play to play... well until the PS5 comes out. Weird marketing message, I though best play to play was going to be the PS5 marketing slogan.

Im like 99% sure, they ll drop marketing and slogans for it (PS4), way before the PS5 launches.
As you said, it just doesnt make sense to do otherwise.



They should put the slogan : "We have Final Fantasy VII Remake exclusively for 1 year fuckers, Best Game Ever. Gonna cry ?"

And put this at the end of commercial :

I think they would lose sales if they did that. It's not 1992 anymore.



Seriously guys, some of you think I'm dead serious ?

I don't think they would really lose sales because of the tone, but saying out loud that it's just one year could.

So they could have something simples like "The only place to play FFVII, buy a Playstation 4".

Dude...you guys have obviously never experienced the joy of console gaming at work. I probably got in at least 100 hours of Zelda BOTW time, not to mention Stardew Valley, Rocket League, and Mario Odyssey while on the job. The fact is, while I love gaming, I have so much going on in my life that I sometimes have to steal minutes and hours away from the day to get in my gaming sessions. Doesn't mean I need a new hobby; it means I'm trying to cram my hobby into a very busy life. Nothing wrong with that.

I still can have console quality gaming at work with PS Now.

The best place to play is everywhere, with the Nintendo Switch. So odd for them to have a tag line that perfectly plays into Nintendo's message.

I respectfully disagree. The only way Nintendo would probably be the best place to play is if they got almost all the third-party support of their competitors in addition to their first-party games, had similar specs, and a modern online and OS infrastructure. But imagine if this happened. Xbox would likely already be dead and PlayStation would be locked tightly in a battle with Nintendo.

As a handheld, Switch is unparalleled. As a home console, I don't think it matches up to the PS4.

Fixing it: as a handheld, Switch is the only one left



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Indeed, that in and of itself is very compelling.

You don't like my slogan ?

But you can play Final Fantasy VII on almost any device: Android, iPad, iPhone, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PSP, PS Vita, Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation Classic...

Even the full game, not an overhyped episode
