So with Sony holding a major press conference on Wednesday, which everyone assumes will be the unveiling of Playstation 4; I decided to make a list of the things I would like Sony to include in this conference. First off, I want them to focus on games and nothing else. Going after the people that like social media, downloadable content, and Playstation Move is useless because only the hard-core gamers will be the ones watching this conference. People that actually like those other features will probably wait until the console is well established before buying a PS4. For now it’s all about the hard-core gamers that only care about playing good games.
With respect towards the games, I want them to launch PS4 no later than November because they can take advantage of the major title games that should release around that time; GTA5, The Last of Us, and Tomb Raider. If there’s one thing I hate about a new console launch is when the developers promise good games to come, but you have to wait a year for them to release. By launching around the Fall, they will have quality games to begin with and will give people a reason to buy the system. This also gives time for games that aren’t quite finished, the time to properly complete such as; Star Wars 1313, Phantom Pain, and The Last Guardian.
While everyone expects Sony to also show next gen graphic games, I would prefer they just stick to the games that have already been mentioned. Their selling point should be what will release and not what might release one day. By focusing on the games that have been mentioned, Sony will then be able to just advertise products that people can actually buy. What Sony needs right now is people buying their products, and not waiting until a certain game releases a year or two from now. Obliviously they should show something next gen, but it shouldn’t take away from their launch titles.
