    Sony closed out the night with the final press conference before the official start of E3 2013. With everything riding on this event, Sony held no punches...NONE! Taking their competition head-on, Sony took off the gloves, threw on some brass knucks, and went to work!

    The reaction to Sony's direct jabs at Microsoft were off the charts! Biggest reaction I've ever seen during an E3 press conference. With the PS4 coming in at $100 less than the Xbox One and not requiring internet and DRM checks, Sony hit it out of the park. I also love the look of the console. It's very reminiscent of the PlayStation 2 design. As always, just in case anyone missed it, I have the entire Sony conference below.

    Can't believe I am saying it, but Sony wins. Do DRM, no always connected to the Internet, no pay to play online, plus free games with the Plus pass which is still 10 bucks cheaper than Xbox live. And the system costs $100 less.

    Sorry M$ you are too focused on things other than gamers, that does not work with a gaming console.

    I'm curious how much the games are going to be. I mean, when the 360 adn PS3 came out, games went up to $60 because of the extra time and money that went into making the graphics so much better, are they going to go up again? Making such realistic games will take longer and much more investment of capital.

    DG,

    When you take into account the game trading, and the like, its a game changer for "purist" gamers.

    For example, I have an X360 and it hasn't been online in weeks. And I don't miss it. I play games when I turn it on. The fact I WON'T be able to do that with the new iteration turns me off. Big time.

    There are 2 different things here, people who want "entertainment" and people who play games. Games fall under entertainment, but I feel MS has forgotten that they originally created a "gaming" console. They are trying WAY too hard to make it a cable box and a boxee box and Netflix and a YouTube watcher and a web browser and maybe have some games, occasionally.

    Just my 2ยข

    "Notarized"

    The eye is $59 so worst case the PS4 would still be $40 cheaper then the One. just saying.I will give credit where it's due. Sony scored a major coup with their strong stance on supporting gamers with no DRM, and no "always Online." Kudos to them for being bold and aggressive with this move. In the long run, however, I worry that this could negatively affect developers who might gravitate toward the Xbox One because they are better protected from piracy. Who knows how this will ultimately play out. If you look closely at the PC gaming industry, you will see how everything will eventually evolve toward cloud-based game purchases anyway, which effectively eliminates buying and selling used games and/or lending games to friends. This means it will eventually happen to consoles as well. We may not like it, but it is inevitable.Regardless, great write-up Briankbl! Thanks for sharing this with us![/QUOTE]Sure the devs are more covered but I think the resounding WTF from gamers shook the ground a bit. I personally will not get a system that I can not play used games on or trade games with my select friends. I am normally a bit late to the game for everything except select blockbuster games so I get them used. Get rid of that and I would not buy them as well as not buy downloadable content later.I seriously think there needs to be some pushback or legislation against all of this. This is akin to saying you could not loan a movie to a friend or sell your car when you want. This is not a subscription model that would play out for that. If you want to charge me a fee to play a game then fine. I will pay and cancel when done but at the rate many of us go through games they would lose out money. My PS3 is a glorified blu ray player and I use my 360 for all of my gaming needs. I will gladly shift allegience again since Sony seems to know what we all want instead of pushing a ton of boundries at once. Perhaps if MSFT had slowly rolled it out it would have been better but at once....Bah.

    Sony won e3 last night, hands down. Their show was the complete opposite of MS, working audio and all. I think alot of the Xbox fanboys jumped ship last night.

    It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows. That Assassin's Creed demo...lol. And then the slight hiccups during the Destiny demo.

    I know I did. I already knew I probably was not going to get the Xbox One, however, I wasn't even considering the PS4. Now I am going to pre-order the PS4 on Amazon and sell my extra Xbox 360 and Kinect for 170, so the PS4 will only cost me $220.

    No need for an eye, the only thing I use the Kinect for is voice commands, I can just stop being lazy.

    I actually missed the second half of the conference live. I'm watching it now. A friend told me there were no hiccups, but I think he was just blown away at the key points of the PS4 vs the One so he was a bit excited.

    IMO, I don't see how the One could really keep up. It's a neat device and definite entertainment hub, so they are going after a broader market, but I mean e3 is about gamers and they certainly weren't very gamer friendly, again my opinion.

    Yeah, the Assassin's Creed demo kept freezing and they eventually had to pull the plug and move onto another presentation. The Destiny demo only froze once or twice. Live demos, it happens.
