[QUOTE] I watched the PS4 reveal last night (still having burning eyes because I pratically never slept), anyone enjoyed that? I think [b]Sony going gaijin with the architecture[/b] [/QUOTE] I know you hate everything West of asia, but seriously, what are you actually trying to say with this line? Maybe you mean a different word from "architecture". I don't know. [QUOTE] 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. [/QUOTE] I don't even know what point you're trying to make here. Sony's consoles have always been marketed with an angle of technological superiority, no matter the degree of truthfulness in their angle. [QUOTE]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.[/QUOTE] This I agree with; pretty pictures aside, I really don't know what new experiences they are bringing us. Sony's "japanese-ness" or lack thereof wasn't the problem; the Japanese game developers shown were. Squenix's demo at least could claim it ran in real time on that hardware. I was really impressed by their demo of Agni's Philosophy at SIGGRAPH last year, because they did a real-time display of that while modifying parameters of it. Knowing that it represents their technology going into the PS4 generation (as opposed to it being a demo running on some nvidia quad-SLI dreambox that nobody can afford) is inspiring, and frankly I'm disappointed that that ISN'T what they showed here. Streaming of gameplay for full-fledged PS4 titles would be cool, especially if they can make good use of the whole "you can play it before it has finished downloading!" angle. That will probably be a fairly big engineering challenge for more open-world games, but for more linear games it will be a nice thing, no matter what country the game comes from. The fact that it will use a similar hardware base to the next XBOX, and purportedly uses linux as a base may have extremely interesting consequences for what it can be used for and where else games made for it can be found (steambox?). Aside: Frankly, I hope that Valve's promise of user-generated storefronts will prove to be the thing that finally eliminates the ridiculous and fragmented digital delivery systems for PC doujin games from Japan (they are universally terrible systems) and makes them accessible around the world with ease.
