Followup on Console Gaming

I recently posted about how a Wired opinion piece seemed to really miss the boat on console gaming. Well, apparently, Sony agrees:

Kaz Hirai says the PS4 is 'first and foremost' a game console, more features to be revealed.


"The most important thing we need to do is agree and understand that the PS4 is a great video game console that appeals to video gamers," he said. "If we miss that part, I don't think we get the initial establishment of the console. That formula has worked for us with all our consoles, including the PS3."
Additionally, this just in from Reddit:


It was posted under the title "A concise list of all the problems with the PS4 (directly from the hardware architect Mark Cerny" and it's a list of features that gamers consider to be positive. In addition to this, the internet is currently exploding with reviews of The Last of Us, a PS3 exclusive, which is being haled as a "masterpiece." So we will see how that goes for Sony - but I think it's safe to say that Wired's critique is somewhat off the mark.
