Can you please, please do something about the speeds of your live event streaming. This is just terrible, stuttering every other second.

All this talk about 4K, and yet PS4 doesn’t support 4K gaming. Doh!

I honestly don’t want to know too much more about Second Son other than karma, because I want it to be a surprise.

@Lara-Croft What did you expect It’s the new thing just like how expensive HD was when it first released.

OMG guys, they just announced The Last of Us for Vita, and The Last Guardian for PS4!

Just kidding. They’re talking about amplifiers and a new Walkman now. :)

Whats going on with the video?! 1 second of watching 1 minute of loading. And now its worse, been sitting buffering for the last 25 minutes! Oh well I’m done, hopefully there will be a replay option or someones recorded and put it up on youtube. I don’t have all day to watch a sexy blue circle rotating.

Yup, this is one of the many reasons I’m still not buying into 4K yet. We can’t stream, a what, 720P video? How the blazes are we going to manage 4K?! I seriously cannot understand why it’s so hard to get a stream working for these events, i mean this happens every single time! E3, TGS, Gamescom, CES, every single time any company does a stream of their conference, it turns into a slide show. We can send people to space, we can create flexible bendable displays, we can create a mobile phones which supposedly has the processing power of a ps4, we can create head mounted displays, we can create VR or AR devices, we can create cars which drive themselves, but we cannot create a stream that just WORKS! Go figure. Sony, PLEASE, come E3 time, can we please have a replay option? That way people don’t have to put up with this extreme frustration!

sony haven’t said any games news at any ces

@110, you do realize this is Ustream and not sony streaming the video, right?

Other than that, I will agree that with the way internet speeds are in the U.S. we’ll never be streaming 4k anytime soon.


116

+ Budapesti on January 6th, 2014 at 5:47 pm said:

If you’re having trouble with the stream, do a Google search for ‘Sony CES 2013 stream’ and find a different website to watch it on. I’m watching via the uk PLAY magazine website, and the stream is silky smooth.

The feed on livestream seems way more stable. Just click ‘watch live events’ and then choose the cnet stream.

I’m streaming from my PS4 in Chino Hills, Ca and it is streaming just fine!!! I was hoping a Windows Phone from Sony, or at least a Playstation App for Windows Phone. Damn, they didn’t even announce any PS4 news. What a waste of time!!!

Press Conference starts: “This year, Sony is all about play!”
62 minutes later, after no mention of Playstation brand, “Thank you, good night!”

Wait…wut?

Lol, they showed a pic of the PS4 but didn’t even release any upcoming info for PS4 except the smart watch crap!

No PS4 news at all?

Why is sony not announcing sales numbers for ps4 like Ms has? No communication about when new needed features are coming to ps4 it’s now january, not impressed with sony right now.

maybe sony will file bankruptcy. They are ignoring their biggest and most popular division… PlayStation

#SonyCES why waste our time and no info on PS4!?


136

+ Budapesti on January 6th, 2014 at 6:10 pm said:

To be fair, this isn’t E3. Sony have a whole press conference every June dedicated to games, and they have to cram everything else into the CES show, but I’m surprised that they didn’t talk a bit about PS4, especially given that this is an audience that might not be as familiar with the new console as we (meaning those who come to this blog) are.
I expected a mention of sales number, at the very least, especially given that Microsoft announced theirs today (and they don’t even have a big presence at CES). Perhaps Kaz will say a few words tomorrow, given that he rose through the ranks via Playstation, and it’s clearly dear to his heart.
Still, I do like the look of that 4K Handycam…

I sometimes wonder who runs Sony, Sony of Nippon or sony US. Talking about a Display output that will not be standard hardware for 8-10+ years. 4K tsk PS4 cannot even playback 4K video right now if I recall correctly. Why was this on PS Blog PS mentioned once as a reference.


138

+ Anaris82 on January 6th, 2014 at 6:14 pm said:

Right.. that was a waste of time. I thought that by pimping it on the PS Blog they’d at least have December’s sales number for the PS4 or news on new system updates or something.

+ The_Codefinder on January 6th, 2014 at 6:21 pm said:

Wow, congrats to Sony and PlayStation for trolling us Blog Gamers, expecting some sort of PlayStation news by posting this here. I’m glad I didn’t watch and just wait for a recap, but I feel bad for those who did watch expecting some PS4/3/Vita news.

WHY? full pancake mode sounds delicious. Can we make it full waffle mode though? I love waffles more.

4K is still a distant future for many of us. I am happy with 1080 display, plus PS4 doesn’t support 4K and even if could support, the price of a 4K display plus memory for the files are factors which push us away from 4K. How about a bigger playstation 3d tv display with affordable price like the 24 inches playstation TV was?
