The true shock to me was the inability for Sny to at last secure a second place position by now. I never expected Sony to lose their first place hold, let alone Nintendo being the ones to dethrone Sony. Sony not only took control of the industry with the Playstation, but they grew the industry exponentially. Prior to the Playstation, the best selling console was the NES with 2 million sold. The original Playstation sold 102 million units and lasted a decade. The Playstation 2 sold 154 million units. For Sony to have gone from eclipsing the competition to being dead-last is something I never expected.

Ace Combat 6 shifting to Xbox Mistwalker never making it to Sony (you think an olive branch to the moneymakers?) Demon's Souls Breakout success being beyond Gamefaqs Removal of Backwards Compatibility coinciding perfectly with YLOD's The utter disappearance of Nova Crystalis Fabulaousa, Last Remnant, Last Guardian, etc The entire network being shut down for a month plus Myself signing up for PSplus and actually enjoying it thoroughly
So many good games getting ripped apart or hated on simply ecause they lack the hype of the big name games...its crazy, so many good games out across all genres yet so much hate this gen....its really wierd lol
This is the biggest thing. It's ridiculous and shameful.

1. Games being released unfinished so they can be patched later. 2. Every shooting game in existence being a CoD4 clone or reskin. 3. Single Player focus becoming nearly extinct. 4. Health Regen becoming the norm. 5. Games becoming LESS playable than in previous gens.
Call me a troll all you like; you know everything I said is 100% true.
If I was told that would happen, then I wouldn't have believed it. I would have said that is just isn't right, and even a big company wouldn't try to get away with something like that. Yet here we are. The rich get richer.
