@Faruko I believe Sony makes the most money on insurance, which is bonkers for a firm famed for its electronics.

Agree with you, though. Sony simply has too many products across all categories. They only need to release three phones at most each year. Market them well, give them good names, etc. Again, though, this isn't really my strongest subject.

@owenstodstill @N711 Here's a direct quote from the article: "Yet, I left the experience with a sense that by familiarizing and desensitizing ourselves to violence like this can turn us into zombies. Our lack of empathy and unwillingness to engage with those involved in tragedy stems from our comfort with the trauma those people are experiencing.

"It’s the single largest issue I face as a photographer. How do we reach a readership that is accustomed to seeing people dying en masse in war zones as a result of games like this one?"

@Gamer83 That's what I find so weird about this, to be honest. This all snap reactions on my end at this point, but if they're going to allow Minecraft to be ubiquitous, then why are they even bothering keeping Halo/Forza on their own systems?

Again, I'm trying to read between the lines, and the only thing that I can get out of it is that they'll keep the 'original' Minecraft on all existing systems, and then release some kind of 'exclusive' sequel - but even then that doesn't make sense.

This is all really weird...



get2sammyb commented on PS4's Hardware Is No Longer 'Top of the Line',...:

Every piece of hardware goes out of date the moment it's released. The trick is to get the most power out of the box that you can for a consumer friendly price. Time will tell, but I think Sony succeeded in that department.

@penfold007 True, but I think those 1 million people that have bought a PS4 represent the real 'hardcore'. How many of those 15 million last-gen consoles are being used for Netflix or sitting in a cupboard?

This is why the likes of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel are in for a tough, tough time.

@Jazzer94 I think they do understand, I just think they also realise that that money's better invested in the PS4 now, which actually has a very profitable trajectory mapped out for it. It's a shame for us that are big fans of the Vita, but corporate realities sadly come into play, too.
