PS4 is “your next console,” says latest Edge cover

Tuesday, 2 July 2013 10:54 GMT By Dave Cook

PlayStation 4 has been dubbed “your next console” in the latest issue of Edge magazine.

The post-E3 issue’s cover reads “this is your next console”, complete with an image of the PS4, and features a line that reads, “How Microsoft Blew It: The titanic errors on Xbox One’s road to ruin.”

You can read more on the issue here.

Meanwhile, former Ubisoft developer Patrice Desilets has said that most hardcore gamers will buy PS4 and Xbox One regardless of what either party says or does. What do you think?

    No, it’s not. The Xbox One AND the PlayStation 4 are my next consoles. Until then, 360, 3DS, Vita and PC gaming FTW!

    Xbox One is such a disaster. POS with kinect and outdated hardware with three OS’s and one of them is Kernel/Half assed Windows 8. for 499$ LOL

    I won’t buy it even for 100$. Well, i’m not That stupid.

    If I buy PS4, it should have some incredible library to begin with. This console gen is pretty much dated to the PC already because of it’s x86 architecture, so Sony need to bring really big guns to the table.

    Or SteamBox. Yeah.

    Nice brave, no-bullshit cover.

    Also, for the people that are going to inevitably scream bias, its an opinion – get over it.

    God forbid that a magazine stuffed with opinions and editorials should stick one on the front cover.

    Edge sucks and I don’t trust them. I was really into PS4 more before I read this.

    #5 2 years ago
  6. The_Red

    Wow, never expected to see this from Edge but to be fair, even AFTER all the policy changes, the Xbox one is STILL 100 dollars more expensive, has weaker hardware AND has kept the mandatory eye of Sauron.

    #6 2 years ago
  7. Batarius

    Still in doubt. Currently have Xbox360, but many online (and offline) friends are PS3 owners. They probably will be PS4 owners when the time arrives to buy a new console. I will probably buy a PS4 as well. But some friends are still in doubt and may well buy an Xbox One. Choices choices.

    As for the cover, I think Edge just wants to provoke discussions (like this one), which is a good thing, I think. Sure, Microsoft blew it (communication), but if you take a step back and look at the two consoles, there’s a lot of good things about both of them. Hence the hard choice if you have to choose.

    Edge have always been pretty good editorially, but this is very premature.

    I wish ignorant gamers would do a bit of research before shooting off what is too expensive next generation.

  14. Froseidon

    @4 – There is a difference between having an opinion and having an opinion that you’re gonna shove down people’s throats.

    Saying “We like console a over console b” is an opinion. Saying that you “Will buy console a” is kinda forcing it (or at least that’s how this headline feels to me). Its all about the way you word it, its what separates the good opinion pieces from the bad ones / good writers from the bad ones.

    Personally, I’m all up for opinion pieces, just not ones where it feels forced.

    Having an line that says “How Microsoft Blew It: The titanic errors on Xbox One’s road to ruin.” is really gonna make the people who still want X1′s feel bad (if they read Edge that is).

    This is just personal though, I feel that if someone went up to me and was like “Console A is awesome”, I’d be like “Oh that’s cool, I might look into it”. If they instead said “Screw your preference, get this.” I’d turn around and tell them to jog on.

    That said, I can see why they have a cover as such. It’s bound to grab attention, and then them money. So yeah, I can see why they have done it.

    microsoft tried to force a future which will be inevitable, they thought the time was now and we didnt want it, to them they probably thought looking forward was theyre best option and it wasnt.

  16. redwood

    saying the ps4 is not great is equally premature.. they have repeatedly said that they are going to be showing exclusives at tgs and gamescom. Where as MS has shown many of their exclusives already.

    #16 2 years ago
  17. Froseidon

    @16 – True, its a double edged sword to be honest. However, that is basically what they have done to the X1. People will buy their preference, its as simple as that.

    Also, I’d say MS still have somethings to show at TGS and Gamescon.

    #17 2 years ago
  18. TrickyAudio

    @13 But thats not here and now is it? The fact is the Xbox One will be more expensive than the PS4 when it launches, just as PS3 was more pricier than the 360.

    The fact that the Atari 2600 was almost double the cost 30 odd years ago, won’t matter to anyone in 2013.

    #18 2 years ago
  19. bitsnark

    @17 For the record, I’ll be buying an Xbox One alongside a PS4 later this year, because games like Forza Motorsport 5 and Killer Instinct appeal to me.

    I’ll also be buying this issue of EDGE because I want to see what the basis for their opinion is – which, in either way, isn’t going to dissuade me from buying the machine in the first place.

    Quite honestly, if you’re on the fence about the machine (not that I am saying you are Froseidon) you should probably consider a range of sources rather than just one with the most outspoken cover.

    #19 2 years ago
  20. harr0w

    @6 yep they were one of the last bastions of game journalism who had kept hold of there integrity, has the edge had a drop in sales or something. Do they need to start fishing to the mindless fanboys, obviously. What a sad day.

    #20 2 years ago
  21. Froseidon

    @19 – Oh I’m not getting next-gen straight from the off. I’m not even on the fence :P I’m just waiting to see what friends get and I’ll buy that one. To be honest, I have no bias against either console and think they’re both great. But, my Wii U and 360 will suffice for now.

    I just meant the cover felt rather forced was all, it doesn’t affect my decisions on consoles at all. I was just saying if I was getting an X1, this cover would seem rather insulting was all. A cover like this makes me think less of the publication.

    Its the reason I like VG. They have multiple editors all with different opinions, so when you get an opinion piece, its gonna be different to another editors opinion piece. Having that on a front cover makes me think that Edge’s views are blanket-wide.

    #21 2 years ago
  22. ShakaCarnage

    It’s just a cover designed to sell copies and drive interest. at 16,000 readers, Edge needs all the help it can get.

    Yep, PS4 will indeed be my next console unless I get Vita first.

  30. Ekona

    Brave cover. They’d probably need something like this to stand out from the crowded post-E3 newsstand, but even so it’s still brave.

    They’re wrong of course, as I’ve ordered an XB1, but I respect their opinion so may look to pick a copy up.

    #30 2 years ago
  31. DrDamn

    Yeah I was disappointed they back tracked too. They should have reworked it, made the message and benefits clear and stuck to their guns. A complete reversal wasn’t the right thing to do for me.

  33. marijn1979

    I’m going to hold off on judgement until I’ve read the article, but Edge have a deserved reputation for well-researched journalism, so I don’t think they would use a cover like this unless they had an article that can back up their claims.

    Xbx1 is my next console. Most certainly. I’ll grab a ps4 later, of course, once they show something I’m interested in & there are some 3rd party controllers with different stick layouts.

  36. Moonwalker1982

    Wow Edge…just wow.

    YES MS messed some things up and the stuff about DRM was not a good thing. It IS a good thing that that stuff is gone. It however is NOT a good thing that some really cool new features were removed because of it. But in general it’s a good thing that they removed the DRM and online check and that its region free. Also their E3 show, which was absolutely awesome and a big surprise…why do i hear so little praise about that?

    It’s quite clear to me, whatever MS does, it’s just not good enough these days. It’s pathetic. Sorry Edge you are wrong, i’m going for X1 first. Because of that simple little reason…called GAMES. MS clearly had the better show when it comes to exclusives and so far their launch lineup is a lot better than Sony’s. Stupid Edge. I guess Edge has seen the finished consoles and finished games running on it, otherwise you simply can’t say this nonsense. Edge used to be professional, but sorry..this article sounds far from that.

    Just for clarification.

    Nobody in these comments has played an X1.

    So, you’re judging a book by its cover (literally, Edge), complaining that they’re wrong about the X1, not having actually played the thing.

    Bit ironic, innit?

    Even with the E3 megatons and even taking into account that they went to print prior to #Xbox180… they should have waited until Gamescom.

    It’s *way* too early to call who will win after just one trade show, but after Gamescom I’m pretty sure we’ll all have a much clearer idea of who will win the battle this Xmas.

    From up above:” The post-E3 issue’s cover reads “this is your next console”, complete with an image of the PS4, and features a line that reads, “How Microsoft Blew It: The titanic errors on Xbox One’s road to ruin.””
    You don’t need to read the article to see what direction it’s heading in. The ps4 is not my next console, along with many many others.

    This disgusting PS4 bias from gamers and press shows that this industry really is going to implode sooner or later. The current model with used games is not sustainable, but hey, who gives a shit right? Lets praise to the heavens the company that keeps the status quo for short term profit and lets bury the company that actually tried to bring the (inevitable) digital future one step closer and tried to change the model to something fairer to the game creators.

    Yes, Microsoft has made huge marketing mistakes and they are not saints either. But this whole thing with the Xbox One the last few months proves without a shadow of a doubt that gamers are entitled little pricks that only care about themselves and cant see beyond their own nose. If game creators dont start making money from used game sales there will be no consoles to play and talk about. But again, who gives a fuck, right?

    I still prefer the DRM x1 had originally and the games sharing…minus the 24hr check..never cared about trading in games cause we get ripped off anyways by the GS’s of the world, but they back tracked unfortunately. Digital is coming..it may not be at launch, but I can almost guarantee that they will offer discounts in the coming months after launch even if its 10 bucks a game. People can say they are jamming it down our throats all they want..it will come and gamers will embrace it regardless because Gamestops will be gone in the next 5 years just like all the video rental places…like people said would NEVER happen…Redbox wont be around for too much longer..last stand imo to grab at peoples wallets with physical media.

    It just makes sense to go all digital…IF in fact they offer discounts, if not they can just eat a steamer.

    Ok i start commenting on a few of these comments.

    @47
    Get off your delusional high horse, whatever happened to the phrase: “the consumer is always right” does that not apply to games? People should be able to buy a game as they please and do with it as they please, as long as it remains within the legal bounds. What consumers shouldn’t be doing is this http://i.qkme.me/3p411e.jpg

    @OlderGamer
    Agreed, it seems biased.

    @48
    I can accept going digital only, as long as it is done for the right reasons and price. No way in hell i’m shelling out 60 pounds for one game.

    @49 Discounts are always good…no one likes to pay retail..its funny though, I can buy the latest movies on FIOS here for 30% less than physical media. That is the way it should be if we dont get the actual disc.

    If they did that, there would be no problem between Xbox One and PS4, by that i mean there is no reason to complain about one in other, besides power and games debates.

    @51
    Thats all fine and dandy but things differ over here in the good old UK.
    For example a game at Retail costs £39.99 Digital: £59.99 Online Stores: Usually cheaper than £39.99 (all depends on the publisher though). I would have no problem going digital if the price concern wasn’t an huge issue.

    But hey to each his own.

    Ironically the X1 original plan would have meant digital convenience at retail prices here. Buy the disc at retail, install and it’s then a digital copy.

    Sony lied to market the PS4 saying they were they only console that could play used games, all at once lying about MS and pretending WiiU doesn’t exist. Last launch people waiting in line for days to get a PS3 to take it home and it won’t boot up… Credit card info stolen, online service down all the time. Naw, I think I’ll stick with xbox.

    You might think that’s crazy, because I’m supposed to believe all the half-thuths, lies and propaganda and switch because game journalists needed something nasty to write, but the part that’s REALLY crazy is that I can think for myself and decide for myself what I want, and I don’t need any silly non-journalist to tell me what’s right.

    I like Kinect and I like that it’s bundled, I like the apps, I like the exclusive titles, and I don’t like being lied to, or sold something based on a competitor (try selling your box based on its own merits Sony). Sleazy negative political ads belong in politics, not gaming, thanks but no thanks.

    Sony is playing it safe for the short term and the result will be a not-quite-next-gen machine. A souped up PS3 were developers avoid investing in any functionality for the Eye because only 30% of players actually have it and they don’t want to limit their audience.

    #61 I don’t see how you think sony was lying if you didn’t already know microsoft had DRM implemented which means Digital rights management and meant that there would be a DIGITAL licence extracted from the game in some form and that the disc from then on would basically be a useless piece of plastic but they recently stated that after the first XB1 update it will be rectified which means you can then sell on your game in accordance to your own preference, Yes microsoft didn’t hold anything back but before the revocation people were writing blogs and putting up posts saying that DRM is the future of console gaming and if it was then what would have been the difference between buying a PC to an XB1?, Nothing… and for that reason alone i would buy a True gaming machine and then i’d be able buy/sell my purchased content without restriction oh and to be completely honest the Wii U can hold its own but if you look at specification nintendo have always been a generation behind, And i’m pretty sure that sonys not following suite and is why Your precious microsoft had to bail on DRM meaning in the end they didn’t actually listen to the consumer they didn’t see the big picture and more importantly that in the end never will off their own back and the length of time they have been in the industry is the obvious evidence, They might look like a part of the gaming industry and sound like this utopia of gaming but truthfully they are just a money-grabbing greedy conglomerate that have a sub-par console expecting everyone to put up with their Sh*t because they think they can get away with it, Well i’m sorry to burst your bubble but if the hardware was better the way microsoft handled their business was better they wouldn’t have a problem and I would actually have respect for the console itself but it isn’t and they won’t any time soon. And the reason why edge magazine says it’s your next console is because anyone that isn’t a microtard will read this and automatically understand english those of you that are i would praise jesus’ that your fortunate enough to be allowed to understand real words.

    example: sonygamer247 says ps3 does 1080p but 360 can not. gets called out on bs. replies ‘I dont know just assumed’

    very bad journalism

    And heres the definition of the term “Troll” One who purposely and deliberately (that purpose usually being self-amusement) starts an argument in a manner which attacks others on a forum without in any way listening to the arguments proposed by his or her peers. He will spark of such an argument via the use of ad hominem attacks (i.e. ‘you’re nothing but a fanboy’ is a popular phrase) with no substance or relevence to back them up as well as straw man arguments, which he uses to simply avoid addressing the essence of the issue.
