(I agree with most the things stated so far, but here goes anyway...) I watched the stream from beginning to end. I think Sony is coming out swinging in a very good way. Although many of the features they announced are of little interest to me, I feel like they're making the right console at the right time. If it doesn't succeed, I can say it's the market's fault, not theirs. Although it's easy to gripe about the focus on social media, the point is that if they have support from the companies I love (and they do), the games will most likely be good. I was surprised to see some names on their list of developers...Imageepoch in particular. That's the sort of thing that got me excited. I hope the system is as appealing to developers as they make it sound. I also like the focus on accessibility. That's a big hurdle to casual gamers. You want to get people playing games as easily as possible. Getting to the point of playing on modern consoles can be a big deterrent.Details like this can be appreciated by series gamers as well. There was also a good balance of content presented in terms of what kind of games we can expect (simple ones alongside "hard core" ones). There was an understanding that next generation fancypants hyper-realism can get along with experiment stuff and games your mom might play. Biggest little thing for me was the ability to suspend games. This is much needed. I can't count the times that I've been too busy to commit to a long session and passed on playing a game due to the lack of this feature. It's also a nice way to cut down start up time when you intend to pick up the same game later. My greatest hope for the next generation is that Sony will return to #1, the Vita and WiiU will be the home for niche games that wouldn't be made otherwise and Xbox will be completely irrelevant. I like my 360 just fine and I have no particular beef with Microsoft, but I don't need another player in the game and their exclusives are the least appealing to me, especially with their lack of relevance in Japan. Capcom's presentation was just "whatever," but I'll be excited if the game is multiplayer. Also [QUOTE]On the bright side, I like that Sony has at least mentioned their desire to make development for the PS4 'affordable'. The question I guess will be 'affordable to who?', but any drop below the current ridiculous prices will be welcome. Here's hoping Sony handles any potential indie game influx better than Microsoft has, and that there's at least some amount of curation.[/QUOTE] Yes. I think this sort of thing is really important going forward.
