You’ll find “better and more exciting gaming experiences” on the PlayStation 4

1 min read


This week saw Sony boss Kaz Hirai take to the stage at CES to talk about the unbelievably successful PlayStation 4, which is currently riding a wave of popularity not seen since the PlayStation 2.

In a bit of very PR-inclined waffle, Hirai waxed lyrical about the system and the people who churn out its games, and those who play them. And with that bit of decidedly quotable loquaciousness, Hirai promised that PlayStation 4 owners should expect better and more exciting gaming experiences, according to Dualshockers.

Sony’s innovation has inspired the creativity of enthusiasts, gamers, developers, and publishers, who are devoted to the PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 4 is the embodiment of those things that we value as an organization: powerful technology, advancement ahead of the curve… PlayStation 4 has built a very passionate community.

Of course, we are in constant dialog with that community, listening to their ideas, and responding to them with new, better and more exciting gaming experiences. And we’re thrilled to see just how effectively PS4 has encouraged sharing, created a dynamic portal to games and entertainment, and immersed gamers in compelling narrative experiences.

PlayStation 4 sets a benchmark for our organization in terms of collaboration, of engineering, creativity, artistry and also experiential design.

Here’s the thing! He may be right this year. Of course, there’s the whole VR craze happening, and PlayStation VR is a big part of that. But even outside of that possibly-soon-to-burst bubble, there are new and exciting things on the way. The PlayStation 4 may not have had a particularly exciting or diverse line-up last year, but 2016 should be different.

Apart from a few handy buzzwords though, he’s not really said anything has he? If you have an hour and a half to spare and don’t mind some one-sided marketing talk, you can watch Sony’s whole CES keynote here.

    “advancement ahead of the curve…” As a PC gamer I will now give my rebuttal.

    you will find that driving a BMW will give you more pleasure than other cars, says BMW spokesperson

    Why do we put up with this, not just from gaming companies and the like, but in general? I suppose, sometimes, if companies did not tell us how great they are, no one else will AND, very rarely, we will indeed miss out on something, I am just getting bit tired of it, both from MS and Sony, the last few months, with the same type of comments. If they repeat it so often, are they trying to convince themselves of it?

      BMW’s are more pleasurable to drive than most other cars tho.

        That’s BS unless you are comparing a $100k car to a $30k car. I remember many years ago back in 90’s in the cheap ones and they were gutless crap to drive, Compared to other standard cars that were cheaper.

          His argument still stands though. Some things are just a fact. The Sony/PS4 thing isn’t, obviously. It’s just sony being sony again. Everything is back to normal.

          Way to be stuck in the 90’s… its 2016. You drove one almost 30 years ago and still think your views hold true?
