Not So Classy

Compare to last week.

 

(Sony has since deleted the post. They're referring to this controversy.)

Yeah, not a good move at all.  We'll see if they post anything tomorrow, but might be best for them to stfu.

I would expect class from Mr Shuhei Yoshida.

 

I would not expect it from some faceless ###### they let control the hype machine for a bit.

But not classier than MS dealings with Sony.

 

I think MS and Sony have a better relationship than MS and Google.  In fact probably the best relationship is still MS and Apple.

At least MS offered mugs.  This is just "well not all but most do".. meh.  Almost sounds like they're worried.

Fair enough, but still companies bash each other all the time.  For example all the Mac Vs PC Ads.

I'm still a bit taken that they went through with that. If Sony was more accurate saying they had more 1080p games than Xbox One, that would be fair and it would achieve their agenda.

 

edit: they actually did say that, I have no problems with that tweet because it's true. The scroogle one was playing dirty

That's true, but beyond the pr, Apple still works with MS and Sony works with MS on various things.  MS and Google not only spar with ads, they also don't work well together behind the scenes. I'm still shocked that Youtube app for the X1 was announced.

Um, so are people that are playing Forza 5 settling for 720p?

 

What about Ryse?  (Matching BF4's 900p res)

 

Or the third party games running at 1080p?

 

The implication is that the X1 is not capable of that resolution, which is incorrect.  I'm not saying this is unusual for pr though.  All these companies like to throw out barbs in the form of 'slick' pr even if its stretching the truth.

 Sony was being truthful in the tweet  by saying why settle for 720P, why should you, its not 2007 anymore. Games now should not have native 720P at all, especially on these powerful 2013 next gen consoles.

That's a good point, no one should.  So in that context, this tweet had nothing to do with the X1 at all, just a shot at game developers I guess.

 

Although they could also be talking about last gen consoles like the ps3 and 360.

But I Thought the ps4's mandatory 1080p requirement was causing frame rate issues.

Its clearly not what they were talking about.  It was a slam against the Xbox One. They wouldn't have pulled it otherwise, or posted it on the X1's launch day.
