Being gamer friendly is good business sense

Make it easy to play a game, make it easy to buy and sell, and people will buy you console. Make it diffcult and people will check the competition.

Sony showed really good sense with the PS4, They interviewed the developers, they investigated architectures, they have gone into the next generation with thoughts of the PS1 and PS2 eras.

One final thing, console dominance does not matter as much as you think, because there will be a huge number of games to play - remember PS2 era?

Re: I agree wholeheartedly

So what have you done to deserve an XBone?

Have you been naughty?

Have you been evil?

If not, you don't deserve one.

You deserve a PS4

No problem here - no really exciting XB exclusives

Not many XB exclusives I actually want, but this generation ME came, Bioshock came, and latest Bioshock Infinite PS3 is great (Move support).

Now the one XB series I have wanted to try, the publishers have gone multiplatform, so I will get Destiny, on PS4.

First games will be Watch Dogs, Destiny, KZ Shadow Fall, Order 1886. Now how can that go wrong?

And we only went PS3 since we had a PS2

Re: No matter what MS call it

Set it up YEARS ago before I had an ISP. My internet access was VERY naughty. Our ISDN work ISP did not check originating number, so I used that, free internet, but high line rental (paid by work). My boss did too.

Now have ISP account, a hotmail, a work, and personals on my own domains.

The hotmail was the easiest web account to use.

My wife would not mind a no. 4, nor would the twins. Daughter doesn't like the idea as her room would get used!

As expensive as IPad so what.

And?

Sony are still supposedly a premium manufacturer, their main problems are when they compete down market with cheap music centres and the bottom range LCD TVs.

I remember the ES and QS ranges, the Trinitron tubes, premiums were paid for these, then they went cheaper and the quality control slipped.

Similar with my PCs Blu Ray burner, I wanted a decent brand, took me a while to find a Pioneer burner..

So to a lot of us the premium Japanese brands such as Sony, Pioneer, Panasonic, ect we will pay extra for a good product.

Secure I have used

Vic 20, Concurrent CPM, Netware 3.x 4.x 5.x

Surprised but it caught one.

Real 32, managed to get a virus on it, but a reboot killed it, we could tell it was infected as the screen went funny, whereas on MSDOS it did not.
