Sony: PlayStation 4 will also appeal to girls

PlayStation 4 girlsSony is making an extra effort to reach out to female gamers with the PlayStation 4, according to company executive Andrew House. In a recent interview with UK tabloid The Sun, House said that the PlayStation 4 will include new features that will appeal to female as well as male gamers.

However, House points out that Sony isn’t “going down the route of making the console pink of course”, as he puts it. House says Sony is betting on a diverse offering of games and content which will appeal to a broad range of gamers, male and female, of all ages.

House added that it’s about casual games as well, saying:

“The key is getting games developers — who are going to make the next Angry Birds — excited about the PlayStation 4. And they are.”

The PS3 is known for being the most “hardcore” of the three current gen consoles on the market, with the least female gamers. The Wii has always been popular with casual and female gamers, while Microsoft’s Kinect wooed lots of girls into buying an Xbox 360.

    Non-gamer girls play shitty games like Angry Birds. They won’t be interested at all in PS4.

    • ps4ultimania

      lol ive seen girls kick ass in cod but for the most part yeah

      • Joel

        That’s why I said non-gamer girls. Because I know there are girls who play real games.

        • ps4ultimania

          ik i wasnt saying there was sexiest here thatt goes to the guest

            This article proves girls dont play videogames, not one has commented.

          • Enigma

            They’re too busy watching Jersey Shore and using Facebook all the time.

            Shit like that.

        • Ducked

          Call of Duty is considered real games?

          • Joel

            Anything that can be played on a console is a real game. And of course that includes CoD. It’s the face of gaming.

          • Metal_Man_v2

            So anything that can be played is a real game? But girls that play what you think are lame games like Angry Birds aren’t real gamers? That’s a real selective opinion…

          • Ducked

            COD is clearly a casual game. Your statement is no different then angry birds. Like metal said.

          • Michael Pachter

            Angry birds can be played on a console. By no means is that a real game.

          • ps4ultimania

            its spelled Pachter ………..

    • NintendoNoob

      Angry Birds ain’t shitty

  • Guest

    I dont understand, is it also a dishwasher?

  • Ducked

    This may be a good thing for PS4, but usually when a company go’s to different roots then what it’s known for, things don’t turn out so good.

    “The Wii has always been a fans with casual and female gamers, while Microsoft’s Kinect wooed lots of girls into buying an Xbox 360.”

    Aside from the horrible grammar in this article, the analysis is also way off. The author makes it seem as if the Wii is made for girls, it isn’t. Also, the rest of the line concerning the Xbox 360 is a made up opinion not a fact.

    James, your articles are for the majority pretty legit and well written, what’s happening man. Don’t slack.

    • Metal_Man_v2

      The grammar in the article is perfectly fine. It would be great if this website doesn’t turn into Wii U daily with people going out of their way to try and find something wrong with the articles.

      “The author makes it seem as if the Wii is for girls, it isn’t.”

      So the Wii isn’t for girls? I know plenty of girls that like the Wii, I really think you need to take a step back, and rethink what you just posted. Your entire comment is ridiculous.

      • Ducked

        PS4 daily will stay clean if no PC or Xbox fanboys invade the site.

        • Guest

          And Nintendo fans.

      • kevin nun—-

        First of all the article was edited by the time you commented and second of all, what’s ridiculous is you appealing to the author just to get the likes. Your entire comment has one argument and it’s basically repeating what the author said.

        • Metal_Man_v2

          I find it hard to believe that the article was edited, because when I replyed to you your comment was new, and the mods almost always say “thanks, it’s fixed now” when the edit their work.

          I also didn’t repeat what the author said. I don’t believe this article is about how good his grammar is, how the Wii had some female users, and how your comment was ridiculous.

        STFU!

        • Guest

          See what I mean, Nintendo fans are allways trolling the interwebs.

          • Ducked

            Ever visted Wii U daily?

          • Guest

            Wii U Daily? is that where Nintendo fans meet up to troll.

          • Ducked

            If only you knew how many Sony fans were in Wii U daily. Oh wait, you don’t.

          • NintendoNoob

            Sony and SuperSoft fans troll too

          • http://www.facebook.com/john.pope.18007218 John Pope

            I hate all consoles an pcs

  • Metal_Man_v2

    It sounds like this could be a step in a good direction, but like someone else said, you have to be careful trying to attract a new audience, or you could lose the old, or even fail at trying to obtain the new audience. However, I feel that Sony is perfectly capable of doing this. Little Big Planet grabbed a lot of girl gamers into the PS3, so if they make more games like that, it could work out for them. Only time will tell.

  • ps4ultimania

    this turned into a sexist article in the comments ppl who are getting downs are being downed by interested girls girls dont gotta be good to have fun the point of games is to have fun thats what game kinda means and there arereal good gamer girls out there so yeah lets watch the comments please this might work rather well we may find

    • Guest

      I doubt girls are on here reading this thumbing down people. They’d probably say hey im a girl you a douch and whatever. You know you cant get your dicked sucked over the internet right? lets stop kidding ourselves, girls dont play challenging games they dont have hand eye coordination skills like us guys.

      • ps4ultimania

        ok wow bro…. do you treat your girlfriend like that or you too busy gaming to get one… never mind im sure they dont want you any ways cuz you wear glasses and only talk about video games….. bro dont hate the ladies

        • Guest

          • NintendoNoob

          • ps4ultimania

            …..ok how about anything not lifeless and entertainment related????

          • Guest

            Umm…. I can’t even think about anything else sadly. You see the trailer that just came out today for the new Carrie movie, looks pretty good staring Chloe Grace Moretz…… There we go! theres something girls are good at, being cruel and flipping out.

          • ps4ultimania

            not always

      • NintendoNoob

        Wow, you’re such a sexist. Do you just imagine that prostitutes that you’ve dated from online cover all the women in the world? My (almost) girlfriend loves video games no matter if people say it’s for boys

        • Guest

          How is she ”almost” your girlfriend lol. Girls only pretend to like Nintendo because its trendy and cool when your young, ya know. Only hipsters keep playing it when they get older even when they know it’s inferior. Nintendo will always be around as long as there’s hipsters and little kids.

          • NintendoNoob

            well I’m one of those people who don’t want to make it official until down the road

        • ps4ultimania

          yeah and my girlfriend is very fit and sports inclinedlike me so doesnt ronaldrayguns gotta stop him self?

          • NintendoNoob

            yeah

          • RonaldRayguns

            Um…. What?

          • ps4ultimania

            dude just stop just get on the good side of me you have nothing left

      • Cerus98

        Enjoy being single you’re entire life kid while all the women who’ve rejected you over the years live a decade longer than you.

        PS. Hand eye coordination isn’t gender specific. Just when I thought people couldn’t get any more stupid….

        • Guest

          Really then why dont they have women playing men table tennis in the olympics or badminton or a million other things that dont take much muscle just hand eye coordination. Hmm, tell me that.

          • Cerus98

            My god, your stupidity knows no bounds. Both men and women compete in table tennis and badminton in the summer Olympics. Try Google sometime before you run your mouth and end up looking like more of an idiot.

            I like your “million other things” comment though. That’s gotta be the most idiotic part of your post. Tennis, billiards, volleyball, aerobatic flying, professional chef/cooking, playing most instruments, surgery and simply typing all take hand eye coordination rather than strength. Women also perform all the aforementioned tasks on a personal, professional and competitive level. Many of the best are in fact women.

            Once again, enjoy being single. I leave you with this final piece of advice. Visit fleshlight.com because that’s all you will ever get with that attitude.

          • Guest

            Man your not very nice, you need to get laid. They dont compete against each other in table tennis or badminton or regular tennis for that matter not in the pro’s or in the olympics. There are sooo many more professional, smart, intelligent and famous guys then woman. Give me a break.

          • Cerus98

            I’d say your about 13 based on your pathetic attempts at spelling and grammar. You’re wrong on many counts. But even if you weren’t, you’re now claiming to know they don’t compete against each other (which they do play mixed by the way) when a few hours ago they didn’t play them at all because they didn’t have the required hand eye coordination. You were proven wrong and now you try to turn it into a man vs woman argument as if that makes ANY difference. They do all the things a man can do therefore you are wrong.

            Fame has nothing to do with anything. There are plenty of famous men and women who are famous for doing nothing. Intelligent and smart are the same thing. Since you lack the basic intelligence to even know that I don’t think you’re in any position to pass judgment on anyone else. And what exactly does being “professional” have to do with anything? Are you even trying to use word correctly or are you reading out of a dictionary?

            Eleanore Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Mother Theresa, Florence Nightingale and Rosa Parks are just a handful from history that have influenced and shaped this world more in a day than you will in your entire life. Pick up a history book sometime. I think you’ll find you have a number of people to thank for a great many things and none of them have a penis.

            PS. My wife says you probably have a small dick and that’s why you put women down.

HAVE YOU gotta fucking thank girls for that.

          • NintendoNoob

            because they don’t want to, my almost GF would kick my ass in table tennis if she wanted to play. Girls just appeal to different things than boys

      • Olivia

        well i’m a girl…so well done there..and i always play challenging games just like Call of Duty GTAV, girls can multi task and what have you got? ‘hand eye coordination?’ brill for you…..

  • Michael

    Angry Birds and PS4 should never be in the same article…..

  • lonewolf88

    no theres not going to be any girls that are going to buy the ps4 just for angry birds…. yes hardcore gamer girls yes but if you think you will win the casuals sony is indeed insane…

  • Enigma

    Sigh, stop differentiating between the two genders so much. Just make the best gaming machine possible, and everyone will be happy. If the PS4 is too “hardcore” for most females, note how I didn’t say female “gamers”, because I’m sure that they would have no problem with it, then too bad for them.

  • Dominic Coradazzi

    Who said girls don’t already make up a big part of the gaming industry/community?
    I grew up in a household with two sisters who’d barely even give me time to play the great games

  • Guhtere

    And here come all the sexist comment of people who didn’t even read the article.

  • Nintendofreak
