Guess it's too much to ask for games.

When you have a lot of money you can and should diversify your investments. This is only one of them.

Game investment is not lacking on The One, the PauperStation 4 on the other hand......

Game development for the PlayStation 4 is not 'lacking' when compared to Xbox One...

It is in 2014 for sure from an exclusive AAA perspective.

SONY's proven track record of GOTY, perfect 10/10. top 5 GOAT games. With MS all we have to go by is in 2009, when MS did the unthinkable. MS dropped core to go upwards of 65% casual with Kinect(lol) to chase the Wii's pot of gold. BIG difference.

Not to mention SONY is driven by the by gamers for gamers mantra, while practicing the Live, Learn and Love philosophy. It makes SONY and the juggernaut PS4 the clear choice.

That doesn't answer the questions. Because your last post was present tense. So again, why did you buy a PS4 since for some reason to you, the console with more games is not enough for you. Because iit doesn't have games according to you.

See when you just fake post every single other time you post in a thread you really mess up a lot.

The show is a "premium" "exclusive" like the halo man tv show about a man in a motocross helmet shooting pokemon.

U Jelly Playstation fanboys?

For many xbox people, this will fill the Breaking Bad void and make the $500 console worth the money, no doubt.

Its part of the exclusive programming as gamers come from all kinds of backgrounds and have all kinds of interest. Nas is one of my fav artists, but no doubt MS will profile people from different music genres, TV shows, athletes ect. And since this is free programming its a win in my book. As for the $500 worth, Titanfall, Fable Legends, Quantum Break, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct Season 1 and 2, and Gears of War 4 all justify my purchase :)

My friend, I find calling rappers "artists" an insult to real music that takes effort. What this essentially is, is children rhymes. Replacing whimsical with boasting about crime, gratuitous swear words and demeaning woman and you pretty much have every rap ever produced. Most of these rap men, they don't know how to play a single instrument. In fact, a lot of the time they just steal "beats". (from real music). Then, when they become rich, we get to watch these silly men on music videos wear a cap sideways, bounce up and down showing off jewellery and pointing at woman's rear ends. It's the low point of culture.

You correct. The only real music is music from when music was invented, likely by Africans thousands of years ago.

My friend, once again you young fellows delve into the cheap easy route of race. Making superior arguments, I focused on the medium, not the skin color. This constant latching on to "Africa" argument rather than the actual quality of the source materiel is a disturbing sign of the times.

For your information young man, I play the clarinet.

Cheap route? That's interesting. I never mentioned one thing about race. I simply gave a basis for the start of music to illustrate the point that each new type of music has been criticized by those who listened to earlier music. Constant latching on to Africa? That's amusing. I simply mentioned the continent once, and apparently I'm consistently "latching" on to it? If it makes you feel less threatened, I can say that music was conceived in Western Europe. It really doesn't matter to me or the argument I was making.

The discussion of merits of music is something that has happened every generation. I'm guessing you play more classical music than Jazz. But jazz is the perfect example of music that was recently vilified, commercialized, now idolized as the gold standard by many "purists". I'm sure the churches in Western Europe that that classical music was the work of the devil and that only folk music had merit. But now you're playing the clarinet.

I think your kid names for me are pretty funny grandpa. You seem to be getting your rebuttals and general grumpiness from John McCain, "my friend". And for the record, I am probably your senior in intelligent, salary, educational achievement, mental fortitude AND age, so take "young man" condescending crap elsewhere.

@uninspiredcup: I could care less about this show. I probably will watch the Halo show however. Not sure why people are complaining. Viacom has a lineup of shows being prepared for the PS4 as well.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2013/08/16/sonys-viacom-deal-is-big-news-for-ps4/

I'm sure we'll see some big announcement about it at the E3. I have no problem with new shows, especially if it's no extra cost on top of my XBL subscription.

I think some of us would perfer a gaming division of a company to spend money on games instead of TV shows.

mark my words...microsoft will sell xbox division. I am almost positive now

LOL!! No, they won't. Especially after making $6.5 billion in net profit this last quarter. If their division is making money, there's no way they will sell it. Unlike Sony who has already sold their PC/Laptop division and is about to sell their HDTV business to a subsidiary company. Mark my words. Sony will lose another billion this year as well. Kaz is going to be fired before the end of the year.

Unfortunately Xbox profits was probably less than 1 percent of that if any at all. Microsoft has plenty of hardware failures under their belt as well. ZUNE, SURFACE, Windows Phones, Xbox(still hasn't recouped its intial investment). They have just been able to absorb the blows better thanks to Windows, Office and a few other virtual monopolies.

How is producing a non-gaming related TV series following in the steps of Sony? At least what Sony is doing is related to games, this just feels like MS pandering to the audience they really want in the casual who's more into TV and media.

Then again i spose MS don't have the same collection of gaming franchises to work with.

I'm sceptical how popular this would be anywhere outside of NA too so i'm not sure it's exactly broadening audiences.

This is like garbage can level productions when compared to the music/films/tv shows that Sony produces. Hell Illmatic was released on Columbia Records which is/was owned by Sony. Microsoft has no idea what they are doing with this console. Just throw money around and hope something sticks.

Through desperation they have paid off the media to make out Titanfall as the next Call Of Duty. They vitally need it as the Xbone is basically a huge disaster. When reality kicks in, the curtain pulled back and the wizard revealed as another shitty EA game, the bricks will fall and dramatic shit will happen.

Give it rest dude. Each gen has been completely different than the last. I bet you thought the 360 would be killed off after 4 years as they did with the original Xbox.

MS has already proven it's putting forth a ton of effort into getting the games this gen. Didn't you buy an XOne? If you wanted to get with "proven" track record, shouldn't you have waited on the PS4? I seem to remember Sony consoles lack in the games department in the 1st couple of each consoles years.

Ok this is just stupid. I didn't shell out 500 for a show starring a rapper past his prime. Do they not realize that they have put in the ability to capturing video on this console? Great ... pay for exclusive content that will probably be streaming via one of your customer's console. The pirates will have a field day with this.

1 Billion dollars on exclusive... TV shows about rap and video games?

Funny enough that it seems almost all common Lemmings shown in this thread are rap fans - I suppose Microsoft knows their demographic well. Kinect watching/listening to people / targeted advertising confirmed?
