For better or worse, the Xbox One is being touted as an all-in-one device. If you’re one of the many gamers who are upset with Microsoft and their decision to turn their gaming console into a TV/sports box, Sony has you in mind. Speaking at D11 earlier today, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai said they’re focusing on the video games first, and the other features second. More after the break.
“The most important thing we need to make sure we do at least initially is that we all agree and understand that the PS4 is a great video game console that appeals to video gamers. If we miss that part then I don’t think we get the initial establishment of the console,” said Hirai. “We take a look at this first and foremost as a game console.” Hirai said.
Obviously, this doesn’t mean it won’t carry many of the features the Xbox One will — Netflix, Hulu, HBO, streaming TV, sports, etc. — but those will not be the primary focus of the PlayStation 4.
“We don’t want to end there. That’s an area we will obviously reveal and talk about in the coming months.”
There’s a lot of outrage, or indifference, about the Xbox One. I’ve noticed many of you aren’t very happy with Microsoft, saying there’s nothing they can do to get you back on their side. So I have to ask, are you planning on grabbing a PS4 instead?
