Sony Teases “Something that Will Shake The Gaming Industry”, It’s About PocketStation

Post by BigBox on Sat Nov 02, 2013 4:51 am

It's interesting to see, Sony talking about the PocketStation again.  Is this Sony's answer for the fact that the, PS4 can't use External Hard Drives?  If so, they have once again won $10 or $20 for this device as long as its alternative function is the same as the original PocketStation.  Damn you, Sony.  My wallet can only take so much punishment!

I saw this yesterday. It's probably an app for the Vita or phones or something, let's be honest. Doing hardware would never work in this age.

*cliche contemporary youngster voice*: What the hell's a PocketStation? Is that a new cell phone?

The internet is great:

But anyway, it's more likely to just be an app that does shit with your PS4 (Cloud memory and such), but will probably only be available in only Japan, seeing as how that's where the Pocketstations are.

Also, the PS4 doesn't use external hard drives, but you can freely customize the internal hard drive to whatever the bloody hell you want. And if you want to use data on other systems, well, you have the cloud for that. This also prevents people from easily downloading hacks and mods into the system.

I know, but the internet is bitching an moaning over nothing, X-Bots use it against the PS4 and Nintenyearolds do what they always do.  Lose touch with modern day gaming.  I do agree that EHD's shouldn't be allowed because of what they can to ruin the experience in online play.

The Bone AFAIK can't use Externals either. And the WiI U literally NEEDS them to exist (which is why I've been hesitant to pay $300 when I have to pay at least 50 just to have any sort of memory).

Hasn't stopped them yet and the Nintenyearolds tend to make fun of Cloud gaming and think they're being smart.

What forums are you going on where there are offensively hostile Nintendrones? Normally they're solely defensive lol.

Either way at that point you know the discussion is dead, and that's when I take my leave from those kinds of discussions.

IGN is the most hostile forum on the internet right now.......except maybe for 4chan and gamefaqs.
