Any excitement I could muster for the PS4 announcement is deflated by the unknown that represents the next Xbox. Why build myself into a flurry when I don't even know why I should, because Microsoft could come out swinging just as hard.
Or that regardless of past loyalties Sony shoved me out of their ecosystem over the course of this console generation. I hardly know anyone with a PS3 let alone extremely active on one. No matter how much the appeal of the PS4 to me if none of my friends move to it away from Xbox then literally what is the point in me doing so? Sony's big push is social.
The known quantities of announcing a new Killzone and inFamous are not entirely follies. inFamous 1&2 were some of my favorites on the PS3. A third entry would while not be a system seller for me be a guaranteed purchase if I did. And Killzone is Sony's closest thing to a Halo they have. Its not as good or as popular. But it could be and should be.
The world building they do is almost SNES like in that the ancillary info on their website paints a unique and interesting story of which 0% is in the games. Plus they are fun to a point. It would only take Guerrilla saying that they've completely gotten rid of how the past two games controlled and I'd be on-board totally with that game. Because from a gameplay perspective the way GG has been totally up their own ass with the sense of weight and in-put latency with the controls was about the only major negative. Which was the death nail for a shooter.
