All started with comments from game journalist Adam Sessler (and a few others), tweeting hints of impending “bad news” concerning the video game’s industry.
At first, people assumed it had to do with the recent “reveal” that Xbox One versions of some games would run at lower resolutions than their PS4 counterparts, and that Microsoft embargoed Xbone games due to fear of websites making comparison videos.
However, it looks like it really has to do with Sony, and the fact that they will allow game/system reviews only 2 days before the PlayStation 4 launch!
According to Marcus Beer (from GT):
Its not just about the games, its reviewing the actual system 2 days before the damn thing ships.
Something feels off right now to be honest & a lot of people are pissed about it.
If you have seen anything I have done over the last 8 months, you will know I have been very happy with the way Sony has been doing things but now its time for them to shit or get off the pot and they are being damn evasive about allowing serious access to the system before launch.
I have mine preordered (ditto XboxOne) & if that is the only way I will get to have said access to the PS4 then so be it.
When people delay access to something, game or hardware, it’s never for a good reason in my experience.
