Re: Ps4 why i am not buying... dear sony

Can I just point out how little we actually know about the system itself? This is pre-E3. Maybe the reason there are so many articles about the share feature is because there is almost nothing else to talk about if you aren't hardware saavy. Even if you were tech saavy, theres only so much you can talk about when it comes to a specs list. I'm just saying....

 

Just due to the monster known as hackers, I'm going to put that windows 8 rumor in the "believe it when I see it" category. That just seems like an invite to trouble if you aren't always online verifying the system hasn't been modified.

Apparently it's a button on the DS4 that when you press it, a Social Media menu pops up that allows you to record and share your gameplay via facebook, youtube, twitter, etc among other social features.  The most intriguing of which that I can see is streaming your gameplay live, in real time, on ustream.tv.

Sounds like there's a bigger issue here than just the share feature. Seriously if that is your primary reason for not buying it then I'm at a loss to respond.

 

The share feature is not something you have to use. It is not something that you will be bombarded with as soon as you start up the console. It is a completely optional aspect. Much like the PS 3's browser. It's there. I never use it.

 

However the share feature is something that a lot of gamers want (from what I've read) and it's something that could prove to be quite useful in gaming. There are those who make video walk throughs like how to find all the treasures in Uncharted, or the vault symbols in Borderlands 2. This would be a huge boon for those types of gamers. Also there are many gamers who like to stream their matches for their friends. This helps them as well.

 

Ever been on the fence about a game but there's no demo? Or you are having trouble finding a video that details what you're looking at? Well if one of your friends has the game, they can invite you to watch them play and it'll be a good way to see more of the game.

 

If the next XBox does use Windows 8 then I will certainly not buy the system. That OS would make it too easy for hackers to exploit. I'm not fond of Windows to start with, but it is the most common OS, so I have to deal with it.

 

I plan to buy the next Playstation system because it has the franchises I want to play. Microsoft doesn't have a single exclusive that I am interested in.

First off, Don't base your purchase decesion off of Rumors because they are not official. Wait for official Details first.  And secondly, you really think the next Xbox is NOT going to have the same or similar features as the next Playstation??

Not many, considering the number of 'How do I record gameplay?' posts that pop up regularly around these parts.

 

When the PS4 releases, the answer to that question will be 'Press the Share button'.  :smileylol:

a console emphasised on sharing and garbage marketing aka the share button. ive seen all the articles and it sounds like bloatware built into the systems firmware and HARDWARE WHY??!? how many hardcore gamers want this... not me and i can find atleast a million gamers who agree.. no exagerations. Sony says its what the developers want.. its not, this is what sony wants (free advertising). and that is why im leaning on the xbox 720 over the Sony Orbis(ps4) this round. plus the rumer of

a universal windows8 the 720 supposedly runs on doesnt help the ps4's bid for my money.

On a side note you would think sony would figure out how to make a decent web browser for the vita after the psp garbage browser but no editing any amount of text is a chore. oh well.. this post took over 10 minutes to edit no joke Sent from my psvita

 


Here's an idea....don't use the share button?

it's an option not a requirement.

If the NextBox does, in fact, run on Windows 8, it will be hacker paradise.  Good luck with that.


Well guess what it will be on win 8, and the ps4 will be win 7..

They will be on some form of windows as of yet it is unknown.

But games are going to be built on a windows platform, also games will be built on each console for each console...

So yeah the next gen it pretty much relaxed on security...
