Warning: this will be a fairly gamey, geeky post.
First of all I was able to listen in on most of the “Playstation Meet 2013” live event announcing Sony’s Playstation 4 yesterday. I also read up on it from various forums and blogs. And then I saw this video that just about sums everything up in 3 minutes. I fucking love this video and you should probably watch it to find out why.
Anyway, here’s a few key points I learnt yesterday:
Point #1 – that there are a bunch of useless people out there who need to STFU about
- Sony not presenting the actual hardware.
I understand why there may be a few eyebrows raised or a question as to why they didn’t actually show the actual Playstation 4, but people really didn’t have to make the biggest deal or pull all of their hair out over it. Hair is precious. Someone commented on rather seeing what it looks like over the talking, the talking that you know, tells us what it does. In other words, he wants to see a black box, literally. Heeeeeeey guess whattttttt, it’s going to beeeeeeeeeeeeee a black box! 😀
I honestly hadn’t noticed they didn’t show what it looked like until much later because you know what? IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER. And only brings in more hype for E3. (The real reason behind is because they haven’t finalised the design).
… Alright fine, here’s a picture of it. Top secret. It has wings. Everything from the future has wings.
- PS4 not being more powerful than a high-end PC
Oh no, this shit again? We know. We god damn know the PC will always be more powerful. Unless you want an annual upgrade, I don’t think it’s going to happen. It also won’t be at the price it will be if built like a high-end PC. DUH DUHHHHHHHHHHH. Why, why do PC gamers have to step all over console gamers, just go away and play your own shit and leave us alone. It’s a different piece of hardware and experience altogether, so go away and go … pick on someone your own size!
- Lack of women presenters
HAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA, I mean what? I mean, I don’t even… how is this even relevant at all? Big bloody friggin deal, dumbasses. I’m a woman and even I don’t see a problem or give a shit. We’re not talking about period pain or pregnancy labour pains here, in which case I would probably find it odd if there were no women presenters… maybe. I’m not sure.
Point #2 – that there are some pretty cool games coming out and I am excited about
- Watch Dogs
- … shit, I can’t remember the rest, I only remember that THERE WILL BE A FINAL FANTASY GAME, because that’s pretty much the only thing Square Enix came out to say. One sentence and everyone jizzed.
- …and then there was Blizzard which got me even more excited. Could they be bringing in a new IP?! Nope, just Diablo 3.
- …and HOLY SHIT how could I forget. Bungie’s Destiny. As in, Bungie, the guys behind Halo. Bungie you, finally releasing something for Sony, youuu.
Cool games and all but then I realised they were going to be released for the PS3 and other platforms anyway, so what’s my purpose in buying the PS4 then? Where are the exclusives? Where is Final Fantasy Versus? WHERE IS THE LAST GUARDIAN?
Yeah, I mean, the graphics were good for some of these trailers and demos, but they were only a bit better than the best of PS3, until I saw this.
Woooowwwww, that’s amazing. They should make a Game of Thrones PS4 game with that kinda quality. I’ll play it.
Point #3 – that they didn’t forget about the PS Vita and it was a good thing I didn’t sell it
The best bit being remote play, where I can play PS4 games on my Vita away from the TV. This will be super useful since my mom uses the TV fairly often.
Point #4 – that I really didn’t give an ass about the specs, I just wanted to know about the games
Point #5 – that I will probably buy it anyway, eventually; particularly if they have really awesome exclusives, but it seems like they don’t, so far anyway. E3 will tell
So basically my biggest lesson yesterday was that I probably shouldn’t go around reading people’s stupid comments because I went from pretty excited to pretty angry. A bit ironic here but eh.
