Article for the day PS4 is a no show!

Today, I wanted to introduce something I want to do with this blog. Well, I scratch that, this is one of the things I want to do with this blog. I will post articles and write a bit about it. I have a nice Twitter feed (shameless plug @Camyz1 for anyone that wants to check it out) and I want to start writing about those articles a bit. Here we go!

Today's article is "Play Station is a no show."

The link to the article is above.
Today, the world was waiting with anticipation for the announcement of the Playstation 4. In between doing a bit of social media study and checking my e-mail, I frequently went back and forth to see when the announcement would happen. Of course it happened around evening time. They wanted to keep the world on its toes.

Instead of keeping the world on its toes, they stepped on them. Aside from showcasing a few interesting titles and showcasing a few features, Sony failed to give a form to the big product. The only peek of the PS4 was the logo. It left many fans disappointed and intrigued at the same time.

For one, this platform is it will be made easier for developers to make game. In my opinion that was one of the big missteps from the PS2 to the PS3. Many people remember the plethora of games available for the PS2 and the lack of titles for the PS3. To make matter worse, the huge price tag at the time was far out of reach for many fans. Many people simply crossed the system of their Christmas list year after year until it was basically forgotten. There were many features added in an attempt to attract customers back but these failed in the end.

Back to the PS4, another tidbit of information about streaming was unveiled. It will have the ability to stream Facebook and online videos. This comes after pressure from many fans over the lack of relevance in social media for Playstation. The list below are the titles a games to be released on the PS4.

  • KillZone Shadow Fall
  • Destiny
  • Diablo III
  • Knack
  • Watchdogs
  • a new installment of Final Fantasy (no surprise there)
  • Infamous: Second Son
  • Driveclub
  • Deep Down
  • Witness

My Opinion:
I'm still not sure I will buy this system. I remember my first gaming console of a playstation (the square one, not he PSone!!) Also, since I have gotten older, I am more of a casual gamer. I bought the latest final fantasy game but I have struggled to find time to play with it. In fact, I think I may have forgotten the controls, not good in the middle of the game! Most of the games I play nowadays are on my ipad so the streaming idea may be good for me. The PS4 is to be released sometime this holiday season so it is something that may or may not make my list!
