Forgot to mention I wish the ps share option was for any gamer, not restricted to just ps+ members. I never play online but for some games that are too tough for me to unlock a collectible or beat a stage I would like to get someones help, boo paying 60buks a year just for that since I dont play online :(

Wow Sony is really reallllly getting comfortable with this lead they have over MS. Didnt really show anything exciting. I have a ps4 and Im worried while MS release update and buyout exclusives they are at least doing things to try and get you to jump ship to them. Sony on the other hand is cruising taking ages to go for the kill. They shouldnt slow down keep giving news the world wants to hear, psnow and tv is not what we want to hear

A lot of multiplatform stuff in there padding out the presentation. MS had COD I guess.

This presentation was all blah - except ... the share feature.  The ability to play a game with your PSN friend even if only one of you have it, is a big deal.  They just pulled this concept right out from under MS' feet.  MS has to move forward with the ability to have people  designated in family account to play games -- from anywhere.  If not they're that much closer to loosing this competition... already

i thought both companies did pretty well, but hey who gives a fuck right?

quite a few games I am looking forward to both this year and next now. tbh I am happy there is not more, I doubt I would be able to afford all of them otherwise. bloodbourne, phantom pain, witcher 3, dragon age, destiny, far cry 4, assassin's creed unity, driveclub, dying light and I could be here all day naming everything so I will end at uncharted 4 although I am not sure it will be out next year. and yes I know some of those aren't exclusive, but they are still all better on ps4 than the xbox one.

Bla bla bla.. Playstation Now.. bla bla bla.. Playstation TV.


Basically it's a no for DLNA and PS3 disk support? That's the end of PS4 for me. Gotta throw it out.

Notice the awkward silence when Playstation Now was announced for Europe?

Lots of little oddities on show, which is cool. Sony seems the most willing of the big 3 to try artistic stuff, but the TRUE exclusives didn't really seem to excite me that much. Though, maybe I'm still sore over Tomb Raider.


...Yep, still sore.

Crap, did they already do the Microsoft one as well? My goodness. I've been too busy for this! Noooo.

The only two things that looked even halfway interesting is Metal Gear and Wild.  Wild will probably be lame though.

As a vita owner, extremely disappointed. I thought they could redeem themselves for neglecting it at E3, and they didn't. It seem the only console I am going to get new games on is Xbox. And I was really hoping for vita stuff.

Ok, I'm curious and this is a serious question. Did people not like this conference because they didn't see the games they were expecting to and were hoping for? Or because they felt it was legitimately bad?

That Wild looks kind of interesting. It's different. I like different. Hard to come by in games these days. Still annoyed about Tomb Raider being Xbox exclusive. I own an X1 and PS4 but, I prefer TR on PC. And it's BS that those who can't afford both consoles will have to miss out. Gaming is taking some very strange turns this gen.

Wait, there's Hellraid, or whatever that Ninja Theory game? Is this on twitch? I'm watching twitch right now and they're presenting LBP3.

Ugh, I'm getting spammed by Gamespot emails again. Have everything set to disabled and always unfollow articles and still getting 100's of emails. First time in months. Anyone else getting this?

So no good games again? Wow xbox one and PS4 sucks this gen. I hope maybe next year they will announce something worth buying a console. No remasters, no indie crap, just good games please.

@Archangel2222


Sony also needs to allow PS4 owners to be able to play media off an external drive, just like the PS3 lets us... MS' recent update for X1, does so and Sony needs to be on par with that..  all this locked bullcrap with Music Unlimited and Sony's movie division is only making me furious that i cant play my own media off an external storage device !

@deb0rian


i dont mind the PS3 disc bit.. i still have my PS3 for that.. but i definitely want the ability to play media off an external storage device.. a USB drive or even a networked one...

@prime_l Wild could be good but I too and mad about Tomb Raider, Not going to make me get an X.bone though just makes me hate the console even more seeing them going to an all time low and hogging third party instead off ACTUALLY owning any off their own studios apart from Washed up Rare and one hit wonder Lion Head but Sony need to put their foot out more.

The thing that really annoyed me was them saying they sold 10 million then going on to show no games.........Yer nice to know we are appreciated Sony.

Did you@spartanx169x watch it because it was the only Timed Exclusive on show in hopes it will come to the Third Party Box?

@usernameonetwo bloodbourne for ps4 and tomb raider for xbox one and metal gear and far cry for both seems good to me

@eloymym I wonder if they will sell me a real cardboard box with a pretty lady on it.

For science reasons.

@Red122 @sonyonly4 @prime_l  Enix haven't mentioned anything to that effect.. but they;d be dumb to ignore the potential 10 million PS4s and many more millions of PC gamers out there !
