[ TSA ] Sony Boss Claims PS4 Camera Wasn’t Cut To Beat Xbox One Price - Page 3

post #21 of 41
Sure Sony we TOTALLY believe you *cough BS *cough *cough



Its a good strategy don't know why they are trying to lie about it. They made the Xbox One look like a chump.


Plus I don't want a camera. Never bought the Eyetoy/Kinect before and im not going to start now.

Of course it was to cut the price, they tried the $499 console this gen to poor effect, not sure whats the point in denying it, but w/e.
Well It Works...

Why wouldn't they deny something that never happened? All it took was good financial analysis prior to E3. Unless xbone came out at $199, Sony was gunning for $399 base from the get go. They wanted more options/bundles and clearly don't see the camera as an essential feature of the console.

No smart company is that reactionary. You are pro active and make the competition react to you...just like Sony did to ms.

The $499 Price tag isn't a big deal anymore now that Tablets, and Phones cost around the same.

I would gladly pay more for Backwards Compatibility.

Now that I know only digital games will be backwards compatible I will cease buying the disk based games. In hopes that the PS4 titles will work on PS5. Just like the PS3 digital titles are supposed to work on PS4.

So that's processed from the cloud?

Because backwards compatibility on PS3 titles is nearly impossible to achieve natively since the architecture is so different. If they stick with x86 on PS5 it will be likely that compatibility will be maintained.

Digital games have no issue being Backwards compatible. Look at the Vita. I can play my PSP and PS1 games on it just fine. Plus Sony already said PS3 games will work on the PS4 if you buy the digital game. PS1 and PS2 digital games work just fine on my PS3 as well.

All about emulation.

the real question is, how the heck do they make such efficient emulators? because the resources required to emulate the ps3 on pc must be insane

Sony didn't yank the camera to have a lower price than the Microsoft console. Sony did the CORRECT thing and made it an option and not try to ram it down peoples throat like Microsoft is doing. If you want a camera staring at you, pay your $50 and get a webcam. If not, don't. Simple as that. Microsoft is just butt hurt.

No. Microsoft is now on my "black list" of companies not to use (unfortunately aside from one product, Windows 7) or allow in my house. Later this month, I should have a nice video posted of me taking a 12-gauge shotgun to all the Microsoft keyboards and mice I own. I've already uninstalled and threw away all the copies of Microsoft Office that I own at the house and replaced them with Open Office. I've listed my XBox and XBox 360 and all the games on Craigslist and hopefully they will be sold in short order as well.

I'm done with Microsoft aside from Windows 7. If I could kill that and keep gaming, I would step away from that as well, but alas, at this time, I can't.
