What is Sony up to these days? First they fuck up the PS Pro and now no mods are going to their console at all. What’s going on over there?
I don’t follow consoles like I used to, but every so often I’ll browse the Internet to see if anything interesting is happening. I’ve actually been considering a PS4 for a few months now because there are some pretty good looking games coming out soon for it. Nioh, Horizon, Nier, etc. I also really want Bloodborne and a few other titles that are already out on the console.
Sony has done some questionable things lately. Since Sony is winning the console war right now you would expect them to try and keep that momentum going by letting Bethesda give their console mod support. Modding on a console has never been done before and it’s a big deal with console games. Bethesda opened up a whole new market for something I didn’t think would do very well.
Microsoft must be happy right now because Sony is literally giving them a huge opportunity. To be fair to Sony they didn’t say no, but they want things a certain way and Bethesda won’t go for it. Sony probably want things their way or the highway. Bethesda chose the highway and whether or not it’ll impact PS4 sales remains to be seen.
The Xbox One has beat Sony two months in a row now. The slimmer version of the X1 is one of the reasons why. Not many people wanted to buy a bulky console so Microsoft did the smart thing and shrunk the size and even gave it some new features too.
Only time will tell if Sony can keep momentum on their side. The lackluster showing of the Playstation Pro, and no mod support aren’t looking good for them though.
What do you guys think?
