PS4 Is The Best Place To Play This Holiday Season, Sony Says

Except, you know, it doesn’t actually have a great many games worth playing.

Posted By | On 21st, Nov. 2014 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


Sony is starting to talk the PlayStation 4 up going into the holiday season, and what they are saying is that their newest console is the best place to play this holiday season.

Of course, if you think about it, no it isn’t. With what games, Sony? Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us? Games I was playing on my PS3 a year ago? Or did you mean games like Destiny, Watch Dogs, Far Cry 4, and Assassin’s Creed: Unity? Games that are also available on your competitor’s platform? How about exclusive content? Were you referring to the disastrous DriveClub? Or… actually that’s it, that’s all they have for retail exclusives this holiday.

When you compare this to the Xbox One, which has had games like Forza Horizon 2 or Sunset Overdrive in recent months, or, even better, the Wii U, which has games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Shovel Knight, Mario Kart 8 and Bayonetta 2, that claim sounds hollow.

I am sure the PS4 will sell well, and that by this time next year, it will have an amazing lineup as well. But as of right now, this is all hype and no substance, Sony.

    LMFAO sony go home you’re drunk

      The article writter is just mad because the PS4 has the superior version of GTAV. Better draw distance, foliage, polygons, better framerate, and more detail.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Till the PC version comes out with 4K textures and 60FPS.

      I mean. Everything on PS4 is better on PC. Why buy a PS4?

      Why have McDonalds when you can have fine restaurant Steak?

    • 54nakaD

      Restaurant steak is actually worse than McDonalds. Look it up.

    • John Doe

      That was a very poor comparison. PC=/=console. PC fanboys are ignorant and stupid.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      You are right. Console can’t even touch PC since PC is so far ahead the consoles are just a speck in the distance like a blade of grass on a barren horizon.

      PS4 has plenty of good games with more on the way. All 3 consoles have good games worth playing, it depends on the consumer’s interest.

      2013-2014 exclusives: Killzone: Shadowfall, Knack, Resogun, Infamous: Second Son and First Light, MLB: The Show 14, The Last of Us Remastered, Samurai Warriors 4, Guilty Gear Xrd, Driveclub, LittleBigPlanet 3, Natural Doctrine, and many more critically acclaimed digital games. Final Fantasy XIV and Injustice are on PS4 but not Xbox.

      2015 exclusives: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Rime, Let it Die, Deep Down, Alienation, Helldivers, Wild, The Tomorrow Children, more.

      The gaming division is well funded, in a net profit, and making quarterly profits. Sony is investing more into its gaming division, not cutting back.

      Sony’s 1st parties are working on several unannounced PS4 AAA games. PS4 will have as many or more 1st party AAA games.

      1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      This guy has to be a marketer. There’s no other explanation.

    • John Doe

      This article is nothing but lies and antiSony propaganda. Are you are a worthless liar too.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Wow. Another Sony marketer showed up. What are the odds?

    • Mark

      I never thought of that! Lol…….makes sense

  • Starman

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL …No they didn’t ……

    • John Doe

      They did and it’s true.

  • Mark

    I don’t have a PS4 yet, but, there’s big rumours on Twitter floating around that Sony locked up Shenmue 3! Wow. I’m hearing they’re supposed to announce this at the Playstation Experience next month. Adam Boyes actually did talk about getting at Sega for Shenmue earlier this year too. Open world, plenty of jobs to do, and hopefully a refined combat system? Boom!

    • Starman

      And yet another attempt to con people into buying that crap ….. Just like ‘Rockstar’ was making an exclusive for Sony , lol and ‘RS’ basically , said they’re smoking something … after the same guy you just mentioned “confirmed there is an exclusive coming from them , so keep dreaming and waiting on greatness.

    • Mark

      Look Starman, I didn’t say they WILL get Shenmue, but only that there r rumours. If it’s announced great, if not, oh well. No need to call Sony liars and opportunists, if that is what they r, they will be seen as so, ultimately. If Microsoft drops great games, while Sony is only subpar at it, people will notice dude, and buy accordingly. This has been sorta the case this holiday right? So there’s no need for u to treat all Sony news like PS4 fanboys do Xbox articles right? Lol. Don’t be so consumed man, screw it. There’s wisdom in allowing the truth to reveal itself sometimes, if what u say is real.

    • John Doe

      The media has been extra biased against Sony lately. They’re trying to save Xbox One by hyping up the Xbox One’s lackluster exclusives. Xbox exclusives are more timed 3rd party scams. Sunset Overdrive flopped and Driveclub outsold Forza Horizon 2. Most people are not interested in Xbox One exclusives. Nobody can trust Microsoft.

    • Mark

      Take it easy buddy. What r the actual sales of Forza Horizon 2, DriveClub, and Sunset? Also, it is generally accepted that the PS4 is lacking in the exclusives dept. this holiday. Are u denying that perception is there? Fall back and calm down.

    • demderp

      Playstation distributes its exclusives evenly across the year. PS4 has LBP3, Guilty Gear Xrd, and Driveclub this holiday.

      Sony supported PS3 with many exclusive games in 2011-2013. Expect the same kind of strong lifetime support for PS4.

    • Mark

      Uhhhh, ok?

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      After five years of no games before that.

      See you in 2018 when PS4 has games.

    • 54nakaD

      Actually Bloodborne, the Order, No man’s sky, Uncharted and xbox has nothing until Halo 5. I guess we will be waiting til 2025 for xbox exclusives.

      Also I didn’t know the LoU, Uncharted 3, GOW, LBP were not exclusives.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Who said anything about Xbox. Are you that desperate to shut down the argument you scream “BUT XBOX!” and stick your fingers in your ears?

      What about Nintendo. Oh wait. They have tons of games
      What about PC? Oh wait. Same. Tons of games

    • 54nakaD

      I don’t want bad eyesight and back pains.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Big Picture mode means you can play on a couch. Myth busted.

    • 54nakaD

      So that means you play on a 22 inch? O.o

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      50 inch, thanks. I’m comfy at the minute. Are you?

    • 54nakaD

      It’s seems like 50inch because your eyes are glued to the small screen.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Nah. More like everyone’s tired of Sony’s hype and not delivering on their promises while better alternatives start arriving.

      Really, what are you going to do when PC gaming completely outperforms the PS4 by this time next year?

    • 54nakaD

      So what are all these things Sony has not delivered? I got my mp3 player and shareplay. So im good. Suspend im not worried about. It will come though. Ps plus is better than xbl. As for xbox all kinds lies.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      No one said Xbox. No one cares about Xbox.

      What is the advantage of the PS4 Vs PC? I’m waiting to hear something other than Demons Souls: Casual edition.

    • 54nakaD

      You won’t go blind from staring at a small screen and won’t ruin your back posture sitting in a tiny chair, hunched over.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      A HDMI cable and Big Picture mode in steam means you have comfy couch mode.

      Please don’t make things up. It makes your arguments look silly.

    • 54nakaD

      Nope. You have 4inch thick lenses and have to wear a back brace to work. Nice try though.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Ah yes. Insults. One of the stages of grief when losing the argument. Put down the dew and doritos before you go into an artificial sweetener coma, kid.

    • 54nakaD

      No it’s not insults. It’s the truth. I’m sorry that I had to bring you to this realization. And it’s not a stage of grief for me because of this.

    • Starman

      I hear what you’re saying but, fansites and fanboys help keep their illusion going bro , so I’m not as forgiving as you are bro.

    • John Doe

      Just like Xbots are foolled by Microsoft’s timed 3rd party exclusives? Yeah, buddy, you’re a joke.

    • demderp

      PS4 has plenty of good games with more on the way. All 3 consoles have good games worth playing, it depends on the consumer’s interest.

      Too bad there won’t be any greatness for xbox until Halo 5 comes out at the end of next year, lol.

  • John Doe

    Where were the Xbox 360 exclusives in 2013?

    How come you’re giving Microsoft a pass for not releasing any exclusives all year, while Sony has released 5?
    Forza Horizon 2? Isn’t that on the 360?
    Sunset Overdrive? 3rd party timed exclusives probably coming to PS4 or PC.
    Microsoft lied about PvZ which came to PS4. Titanfall, Dead Rising 3, and Ryse all on PC. Microsoft pays off 3rd parties more than they make their own, and you’re giving Sony hate?

    You also lied. The PS4 has Little Big Planet 3, and Guilty Gear as exclusives this holiday. AT LEAST THE PS4 HAS REAL EXCLUSIVES. Gamingbolt is a joke!

    • Mark

      Microsoft lied about PvZ exclusivity? From their official Xbox news site; “Plants vs Zombies will roll out exclusively first on Xbox One”.

      http://news.xbox.com/2013/08/gamescom-plants-vs-zombies

    • demderp

      PvZ no, Ryse and Dead Rising 3 yes.

    • Mark

      I didn’t know Ryse and DR3 is also on PS4?
