It will eventually do much better than Sony this generation. This article explains where Sony has missteped.

Interesting read. I agree that Sony does seem to focus on solo more than multi. That was great years ago, but anymore new gamer's and such seem to want multiplayer as the focus(I'm just going by people I've met and such). Ultimately we'll see how it plays out, but regardless all 3 systems are gonna have great exclusives. Also I believe it was announced that "The Order" would have a co-op mode but I could be wrong.

Don't most games out on it right now have a multiplayer component?

Yeah, I think the writer saw Infamous SS and assumed thats how Sony would handle this gen. I still thought it was an interesting read, but regardless we'll know which out of the 3 is the king in about 5 years.

Yeah because yearly CoDs, Battlefields don't add multiplayer to the system.
Neither does Uncharteds or The Last of Us multiplayer apparently.
Little Big Planet sure doesn't encourage multiplayer, Planetside 2 is online but nah no multiplayer.
Games like Dark Souls will never release 3rd installments, or Demons Souls won't get a sequal.
Couldn't possibly be an overabundance of games with multiplayer be it multiplats or exclusives.


What a joke article, oh wait Fool.com

It isn't even that sony is missing a multiplayer element. It is that many sony fans just don't care about multiplayer. Sony could put a ton of focus and effort into multiplayer and nothing would change. They just aren't that interested.

Sony being open to Free to Play games can easily change this.

Loadout, Gunz2, NFS World and such could Sony a nice MP boost.

DC Universe Online is already my most played mp game. And I'm eagerly awaiting the inevitable FF A Realm Reborn to hit the PS4.
