PlayStation 4 wins “Best hardware” award at Gamescom

PlayStation 4 console
Sony showcased the PlayStation 4 big time at Gamescom in Germany last week, using the event to announce the PlayStation 4 launch date (just as we predicted they would, back in April), and to reveal several new PlayStation 4 games as well.

And the console was well received among gamers and the press at Gamescom, as the PlayStation 4 has officially won the “Best hardware” award at the show. In addition, the “Best console game” was given to Destiny for the PlayStation 4 as well.

Overall, Gamescom saw attendees rise to over 300,000 this year, with all the big console makers and game publishers present. On the first day of the event, Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 launch date: November 15, 2013. They also revealed 15 new games for the console, most of them indie titles.

    Even then, that still doesn’t excuse them from their shitty conference that mentioned “Vita” over 100 times.

      They needed to mention the Vita 100 times because the handheld is a piece of glass in sand.

      They were going to do all that during E3 but didn’t have time so they left it all for Gamescom. They’re ready to pull out the big guns in the Tokyo Game Show.

      I understand the video of them saying PS Vita a lot of times is a way for Xbox fanboys to feel good about themselves which proves how low their confidence was. Oh and if we were to compare the Sony’s “failed” conference with Microsoft’s failed E3, at least Sony was about gaming…

      Funny, because I clapped at least 100 times during that conference. I find that those who own a Vita and play it, like it. I play games on my Vita daily while my PS3 is mostly for Plus downloads and Netflix/Blu-ray viewing.

      If they didn’t talk about Vita then some smartass would call it a piece of glass in sand, as if to say they were themselves a poetic genius. And Wii U is a glossy paperweight without a multiplayer Batman. And iPhones are wannabe Androids. This is the type of person that isn’t satisfied by anything in life.

      I’ll be enjoying my PS4 from the comfort of my Vita while my wife watches whatever crummy show she chooses. Love thine Vita = Love thine life.

    I’m gonna take a prediction just randomly like out of a hat.

    Lets say holiday sales go like this…

    1: PS4 sells 4.2 million units during the holiday season.
    2: Wii U sells 2.7 million units during the holiday season.
    3: Xbox One sells 2.5 million units during the holiday season.

    Those are my predictions.

            I don’t think you have the rights to tell him where he can and cannot comment. He has his own opinions and his own predictions. If you’re against them simply explain in your opinion why you think differently. Don’t go jumping to conclusions that he’s a fanboy because he has a good prediction considering PS4’s pre orders are way higher than xbox one’s. You’re blinded by your fanboyism to the point where you can’t even accept the truth.

            Yeah, some idiot was boasting about how FF15 and KH3 are coming to Xbox One. So I told him too bad FF14 isn’t then thanks to his insecurities he contradicts himself by saying he doesn’t care about JRPGs when clearly he was boasting about them which proved he was talking out of his ass.

            And the last comment was me talking about how RIME looks beautiful.

      Little crazy but I’ll accept it, but let’s tweak it a bit. Ps4 sells 4.0 million
      Wii U sells 3.5 million
      Xbox One sells a million, no one bought it after Microsoft did another 180 with their policies

        Nintendo selling 3 million can be likely, but Xbox One isn’t doing that poorly. There most likely at least sell 2 million, if they didn’t then I’d be surprised.

    This isn’t too surprising PS4 is guaranteed to have a lot of games that reach different peoples taste. PS4 is my personal choice in this current console war, for the main reason that it’s popular in Japan and Sony are very passionate about making games. I like a lot of anime games and since it’s region free i’ll be able to pick more of them up. (other than Persona and Blazblue since they get localized) I somehow don’t see this being the case with the Xbox one because the 360 is already dead in Japan and Xbox don’t do much to reach that part of the worlds taste. I hope all consoles succeed this gen as competition is always a good thing, it brings innovation and more reason to have killer exclusives that are a must have. Looking forward to WatchDogs and Killzone, also ‘Everybody’s gone to the rapture’ looks like a very interesting game.

        Yeah, it’s not surprising. A superior hardware getting a reward for being superior shouldn’t be much of a shock. I’m pretty sure that’s logical enough for you. If you deserve it, you earn it.

It doesn’t matter because no matter how much he cries, PS4 still got that reward. I’m pretty sure he’s also deleting his comments to not look like an idiot and he starts downvoting everyone.

    Ok I had the ps4 reserved I am a huge fan of Sony. But I yesterday changed it to Xbox one. And this is my reason
    Ps3 was also way more powerful then Xbox 360 but what I like about Microsoft is that they constantly, add more and more services. Yes they pissed me off for that dem but they changed it all. So that shows they care hugely about there customers and money. So that means they are going to do whatever it takes to be number 1. That in terms means if they want something bad enough there going to get it. They have all those functions and capabilities they have 3x more money then Sony anytime. I love ps but as a consumer who wants a future gaming system and entertainment future. Xbox 1 wins.
