In this week's edition of the top PlayStation 4 news stories from around the Web, we start off with Edge Magazine making a bold proclamation: the PlayStation 4 is the winner of the next generation console wars. The next issue of Edge magazine, due in one week, states boldly on the cover that "This Is Your Next Console" with an image of the PlayStation 4. The magazine will look at why the PlayStation 4 will be dominant along with why "it is the only option for consumers." We've included a picture of the magazine's cover.
To further cement the PlayStation 4's dominance is rumors that Demon's Souls 2 will be making an appearance on the machine. A little known fact is that Demon's Souls, originally published by Atlus in the United States, is a Sony property; at the time, Sony didn't feel confident bringing it out to the West so Atlus took over publishing duties. With the popularity of the game, along with spiritual successor Dark Souls, Sony looks to be revitalizing the series for a PlayStation 4 run.
A Microsoft executive who had said that technical comparisons between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are "meaningless" has now gone back on his statement. He explains that he meant it was all about the games and not the hardware that powers them. We know the truth: the PS4 specs are far superior compared to the Xbox One.
While Xbox One forces the Kinect upon you, SCEA President Jack Tretton has claimed his company won't be doing the same with the PS4 Camera. In an interview with IGN Tretton claims:
"...for the development community and for the consumer it should be a choice. If you’re a developer who is excited about the camera and really think you can integrate that into making a great game, please do it. We’d love to have you on board. And if you’re a consumer who is interested in buying the camera, we’d love to sell it to you for 60 bucks."
