I watched the PS4 reveal last night (still having burning eyes because I pratically never slept), anyone enjoyed that? I think Sony going gaijin with the architecture and the Gaikai thing was a wise choice market-wise. It will bring more easily western developers to their shores and has considerable advantages in a industry centered around those companies and high-end performances technology. But then come the games; absolutely without any interesting point, feature, character design, background world (well, maybe Watch_Dogs is an exception), even Capcom and Square failed miserabily in presenting a new generation of Japanese games. These are the things I point out: [b]Console:[/b] very heavy on the social gaming aspects, a double edge sword that can be used to improve your gaming experience (see Miiverse) or create an absolute realm of chaos dominated by poor content (see facebook). I have a suspect that online gaming will still be free of charge but other things (like gaming cloud, streaming and game trials) will be only for + users. [b]Controller:[/b] slight variation fo the dualshock layout: not bad, not amazing. D-pad seems better but I don't know how to expect from the tracking camera element. I hope it does not takes secretly photos of me like Kinect does because it's a very dumb (and unpolite) thing. [b]Games:[/b] were shown about 10 games, while most of them seems impressing from a technical standpoint, there's nothing that can make me buy a PS4. Knack: typical childish Sony mascot game, awful character design included. I always think that most of those games would have been significantly better with a Japanese art direction. Killzone Shadow Fall: at first glance seems amazing, but it's the same scripted fps we've seen billion fo times. Boring as hell. Driveclub: competitive racing game with cool cars you'll never afford to buy; includes virtual penis' measuring rod. Infamous Second Son: new protagonist (asian guy) and new different setting (futuristic). May end up liking this. The Witness: new game from the uber-overrated creator of Braid. Is a Myst clone with a colorful graphics. Deep Down: a [s]porno spoof[/s] spiritual sequel to Dragon's Dogma. It was a render that showed 3 guys in a cave hunting a dragon. Same old boring fantasy setting seen dozen times, maybe someone here could enjoy the final build but who knows how the real game is shaped. Presented by Ono himself. Agni's Philosophi: same exact demo, but on a PS4 hardware, no game related. Also announced a new FF to be presented during E3. Presented by Hashimoto. Watch_Dogs: real time gameplay, seems ok. Diablo III: only logo shown, lol. Destiny: new Bungie fps, only online. If this is the future of gaming, I prefer sticking with the past (for now).
