PlayStation 4 Unveiled but Fails To Ignite Hype

The Sony PlayStation 4 unveiling triggered a lot of negative comments yesterday. The initial major disappointment for Sony fans was that the company did not show the PS4 console. We only got to see the new DualShock 4 Controller and the camera. The event was 2 hours long, but failed to ignite the hype Sony might have hoped for. We will see more analysis today from industry pundits. James McQuivey from Forrester already posted his take. He sees the Sony PS4 betting on the past and giving up the future. 

The PS4 is a sold next-gen hardware and platform, but does not take gaming to a new level. It also does not address how the gaming market has changed. More and more gamers spend their time on smartphones and tablets. New cloud based streaming allows to play elaborate games on cheap hardware. The Sony PS4 will not be cheap. The PS4 will find its fans, but Forrester's James McQuivey predicts that Sony will sell fewer PS4 consoles than it did PS3s. This is would be a major fail that could kill Sony.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
