Humility tends to bring out the best in companies and hubris tends to result in corn-filled dog poop. I hope that Sony has learned from Microsoft's missteps as well as its own and remains consumer friendly. The next test will be Playstation Now's pricing, will they deliver a great product or will it be an overpriced failure?
Edited by RagnarokUnbound: 7/30/2014 6:43:41 PMMay want to move this to #Gaming, it'll get a bit more attention there. As an Xbox user I absolutely support Sony. You have to admit they make quality games that people enjoy. To refuse that is being completely arrogant. Though I don't have a PS3 is PS4, they obviously made improvements, and it shows with the sales numbers. I personally think MS suffered the same thing Sony suffered from the 2 to the 3; people loved their product, it was top of the line, they can do anything and they believed people would accept it. Another reason I support Sony because in a strange way it supports MS. From my point of view because Sony is doing better, it drives MS to do better; for example MS got rid of all their policies that made the One so controversial in the first place. It was similar to last gen, support for the 360 made Sony change its ways with the PS4 and PSN (i.e. Subscription model)
IMO OP and Ragnarok both deserve a "This" post. I was a hardcore PS2er for most of it's lifecycle. I only moved to Xbox 7th Gen because I bought a few games (PS2, Ironically) from a newly opened local game shop. They gave me some raffle tickets for a drawing for a 360 and I ended up winning. This birthed my love of Halo and a few friendships which naturally led me to the X1 (After policy changes) but I like both systems and would probably buy a PS4 if the cash was just lying around. I can't honestly say I dislike anything about PS other than the focus on Indies. I'm also jealous that they get From Software's new game. Doubly so because of my massive disappointment in Dark Souls II. So, yeah. Xboxer here. But I was sad when Tretton departed, and I know many PSers that were happy when Spencer rose to power. Weather they know it or not, both "sides" want the other to do good. Because then their side will have to match it. Believe me, As an Alaskan, I'm fully entrenched in the evils of the mentality of "Of course we're gonna cheat our customers, who's gonna stop us? lelz." It applies very heavily here to the very reason I'm posting this: Internet service. It's cool that they finally have a reason to see how awesome B.net is, and I hope the best for all platforms.
Microsoft didn't do the same thing with their third and current console. They've innovated and responded to the requests of the fan base.
