Not getting PS4, Sony too out of touch

[ Edited ]

So yeah pretty much everything Sony has done with the vita since launch has convinced me not to get a ps4. That's really the only reason (other then my backlog) Sony has just made one stupidly horrible deceision after another, they started cashing shooters again and obviously have no idea how to advertise anything else. wiiU hardware sucks and XB1 has horrible policies so I'll either sit this gen out or get gaming PC, unless Sony stops being so stupid. 

 

Honestly though I'm really hating direction the industry is going.

 

-Charging for updates and making less and less content for games because they can just charge for it later as DLC

-Making budgets even bigger making games even less unique and even more "casualized" 

-Completely ignoring genres despite obvious and repeated examples that people want them 

-Charging for online

-Insane prices for renting games digitally... 

-Chasing after candy crush and call of duty... 

 

Yeah too much stupidity in the industry, and Sony is no exception, before they were the best of a bad bunch but they are getting worse and I just can't support this stupidity even longer.

mkay.

are you hoping people will try to change your mind or something?

and frankly, most of your points are either false, not Sony's fault or just opinions. but to each his own.

I own a PS4 (like most people do on these forums), and honestly..?  Mine gets turned on about once a week to check for updates or to see if anything new is in the store for it.  Short of that, it stays in standby 99% of the time.  By far and wide, not my best decision to buy it back in March when I did, and I should've waited for another 3-5 more years to buy when Sony finally decides to get its stuff together and actually offer something on it.

even most supporters say this, the main thing is with graphics as high as they are now a days its gonna take a long time for games to be made for you guys. you could end up waiting like you said 3-5 years for good ones.

look at PS3, the games that were in high demand were the ones that had high amount of graphics and it took years to see them. i actually feel bad for this gen.

Actually, the OP makes some very good points, and I've outlined the best ones he's made in red for you.  The Op is just telling the truth:  There is really no choice in game genre's anymore:  Everything is all shooter anymore, and they are charging us to play online.  Rental prices are high.  Have you seen the rental prices on the NOW Beta?  I have.  They're high.  

I don't see where the OP is really wrong in his/her post.  Actually, the OP is telling the truth.  For what it hurts to hear, it's still the truth.

The only thing I see out of touch is OP. But thats fine, you can purchase whatever you want. If you don't want to buy a ps4 thats fine, its your loss

Sony attack dogs? I simply prefer thought processes over childish wants.

We never waited 'years' for great PS2 games, and even though the graphics wasn't that high tech for most of them, they were still great games to play.  And the industry boomed.  Now look at it.  Sad.  People prefer graphics over content and replay factor.  I feel sad for this generation as well.
