Apparently, Sony is controlling the environment and footage for any PS4 console/game reviews at launch. This coming shortly after the weirdness of telling customers that Bluray and DVD playback will need an Internet connection to work at launch.

Sounds like butt hurt media jockeys to me.

-

The blu ray/dvd playback is a non issue. Movies are going to be region locked. I assume that is what the initial connection will do.  Seeing the consoles aren't, they had to employ this once they are in place.

I may be old, but I still love to game.

Pong, Atari 2600, NES, Super NES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis with Cd, Atari Jaguar with Cd, PS, PS2, Xbox 360, and now...PS4.

That last part is completely unrelated. And seeing as you've posted this, please tell me how this is bad.

This is exactly what I have been talking about in another thread and none of it seems to be very true. It seems certain journalist are complaining about not getting review kids and or restrictions being placed on uploading video content. We already know that all that is needed to upload video content is an account to upload it to, be it facebook, ustream, twitch. So thats not an issue. 

 

The other thing is that Rev3 has already said that they are reviewing PS4 games. How could they have started reviewing PS4 games LAST WEEK unless they already have a PS4? Seems like a smere campaign has started. There are hundreds of millions of dollars at stake and so far one company has been taking a beating. Don't be surprised if you start to hear about the PS4 causing brain damage, over heating and exploding, or putting kids into trances. Take everything you hear with a grain of salt...

 

NO PS4?

How only letting gaming journalists in to review/use PS4 and its games PRIOR to launch at a catered event? Some might argue that sets up a bad PR look, dark...
