RE: PS4: E3 announces Kh3 and FFXV
History might not repeat itself, but it sure as hell rhymes.

Or does no one else remember a little thing called E3 1995?

There were two big console releases on the horizon; the Sega Saturn, and the newcomer, the Sony Playstation. Both were scheduled for release later in the year - the Saturn on Sep 2, the PS1 the following week on Sep 9 (US dates, since E3 was really only for the American market in those days).

Sega's press conference contained two bombshells. The system was launching immediately (to pre-empt Sony - which rather backfired, since no games were ready yet!). More importantly they announced the price: $399 USD.

Sony's conference was next. The centrepiece was just a few short words. $299.

And that is how, eighteen years ago, Sony won the second generation of console wars.

What do you want to bet some of Sony's higher-ups remember that one pretty damn clearly?

I will completely admit that yeah, I was a totaly 360 fanatic, and compared to 360, PS2 kind of sucks. Microsoft completely disappointed me. Seriously. Watching the reveal for the new xbox, this was all my brain could make of it.





Xbox go home. A NEW DOG.

Still, anything you say sucks, Hughs. Wink

Bloody hell, never thought I'd see the day that you would even vaguely hint that I may be right about anything. I think I may pass out.

Don't get too lightheaded on me now. I'll still find a loophole to be more "right about anything" than you. (;

It's looking that way. It's not gonna be as simple as with Sega though, Microsoft have the financial power to keep fighting.

True, but I just don't see Microsoft coming back at that. That's like trying to cover up poop with more poop.

...It's still just poop...

And you're still a butthole, but an awesome butthole I must admit. Not that that will stop me from an annihilating you on PS4 and laughing at your tears of despair I hope you understand .......

However bad it goes though they can always just cut their loses and spend the next few years working to make sure the next xbox is completely awesome and focus on the next fight, they got the finances for it.

Ain't nobody got the patience for that. Pick the company that's not getting owned like an old school rap battle.
Cool
