PlayStation 4 Unveiled but Fails To Ignite Hype

Sony unveiled the PlayStation 4 yesterday evening. The initial reactions are mixed to stay polite. Many Sony fans who have watched the two hour event came away disappointed to not have seen the console. Industry voices say that the PS4 is anchored in the past and does not address the future of gaming.

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.
