Meanwhile, Nintendo just keeps on making great games...

Sometimes I think they're the only company in the video game business. biggrin.gif

They're including a converter for it now, or you can get one free, can't remember which.

Hardware wise yeah i agree. Game wise the ps3 was the bees knees. Still have mine and still use it. The ps4 (and the X1) game wise just arent a worthy investment imo.

If i were MS and Sony, id of made the PS4 and X1 be the step up that the 4k and Xbox...whats it called are being made out to be and made the PS4k and new Xbox an actual new generation with 4K support/disk drive + the required hardware for VR and have consoles capable of 1080p+ @ 60fps for once.

I enjoy uncharted, its a great series.. but thats all the ps4 has for me atm with the rest being the exact same games we played last gen but just a bit less pixelated.

Im all for consoles, but this gen they've failed at what makes them so integral to the gaming industry - Innovation. Everyones just shuffling along playing it safe while churning out variations of the same tired old crap and remasters of last gen games that more often than not, look worse than the OG version (just look at the Bioshock "remasters").

Over the last 4 years or so, ive had more fun going back playing games from pre 2006 through to the 80s than ive had more fun playing anything after 2006.

I wish they'd release the mic portion of the kinect without the camera.

Since everything's practically a port these days, the graphical improvements will trickle their way to PC.

It doesn't make up for how much they have lost on the PS overall OR how much the company in general is losing.

Sony as a whole have a huge amount of sub markets.
the PS gone will not actually kill sony. They have the movie industry, and imaging industry, displays, etc etc etc.
The PS is a good income industry for them. But it won't kill them if it is gone.

They're failing in every single one too, and their stock is continually downgraded to "junk". They have restructured so many times to make PS their main leg to stand on for this very reason.

Those things don't perform well for the company anymore, haven't in a while. They'll still make them, but they have to rely on PS to make money and sell their other media/services.

They have lost much of their leadership in other markets. Back in the day when Walkman and Discman were popular, they had the music player market to themselves. Now phones have taken over that market. Same with TV, back then their tube TVs were the best, but now Samsung has overtaken them with the LED panels. The only advantage they have now is Playstation, so it makes sense to focus on that. If they can lead in the VR market, it'll be a good 10+ years of profitable business for them.

Yeah Sony mobile is a dead loss- I have never even remotely considered a Sony phone when buying a new device. Its either iPhone or Samsung.

Their PSP is considered by many to be the best portable gaming device in history. The reason their Vita failed was because there were too little titles and too little support it was closed to the community mostly. The GPD XD in my eyes took the spot from the PSP rather than the Vita did as best device. Sony got stomped by a Chinese company that simply put together an android tablet with good physical controls.

They can still turn the tide if they want to.

PSP is bad, has been bad and will always be bad. Bad games mostly, inferior console ports and shovel ware. Failed to challenge the handheld market master like everyone else. The PSP's claim to fame is not sending their parent company to the grave after failing to beat Nintendo with the same tired old OMG GRAPHIX w/ crap games and battery life strategy. PS Vita got stomped by the DS....because that's the platform that all sony's beloved 3rd parties flocked to after sony tried to relase yet another game gear 2.0.
