I'm not an expert in trademark law, but I regularly handle legal issues. Sony's application will be reviewed and either granted or denied. In this case, as there is a plethora of other people and companies using the term "let's play," it's highly unlikely Sony will be granted the trademark due to it's lack of uniqueness and already established prevalence in the market.
No, it's a fucking "no".
Is Bloodborne a timed exclusive or multiplat?
Is Uncharted 4 a timed exclusive or multiplat?
Is No Mans Sky a timed exclusive or multiplat?
Is Street Fighter 5 coming to other consoles?
I hate Uncharted. It feels like shit to shoot stuff and I don't really like games that feel like guided tours.
But is 4 main installments and 2 Vita spin offs really that hard for you to keep up with? Oh god you're not retarded, are you?
Is this really the "best lineup" in the industry?
Bloodborne is the only noteworthy title, and it's already out so I wouldn't add it as a "lineup".
Nobody Cares Sky is coming to PC.
SFV is definitely timed.
I own a PS4 and I don't even give a fuck about Uncharted.
Rumors are spreading that Yakuza Zero might even be going to PC.
If Square Enix can patent RPG mechanics, Sony can trademark phrases.
So let me get this right.
Publishers everywhere (especially Nintendo) mad as fuck at people uploading lets plays of their game and making a profit from it on places like Youtube.
These publishers claim ownership of videos and deny the creators money while making it for themselves.
Then Sony comes along and learn about this. Except they cannot make profit from it, since they have no games.
So they do what they deem is the next best thing, trademark the term "let's play". So if anyone uploads a lets play video to Youtube they got to pay Sony.
Maybe if it does well on PS4 in the west. The Yakuza series BARELY made it back to the west after Dead Souls was a dud
(what the fuck were they even thinking releasing that shitshow here instead of a good spin-off like Kenzan!)
No Man's Sky is coming to Windows, as well as Street Fighter. They'll probably make a version of Street Fighter on Xbox eventually. Capcom wants the money too bad. I don't think Bloodborne will come to PC, but it's certainly possible.The only one I don't ever see coming to PC is Uncharted.
>They'll probably make a version of Street Fighter on Xbox eventually
Nah, they out right stated due to Sony's funding and involvement that SFV will never come to a console besides Playstation. It's always been *also available on PC* though, so who cares.
With videogame blockbusters such as
THAT DAVID CAGE GAME WHICH STARTS GOOD AND GETS DERAILED INTO SHIT AFTER THE FIRST HOUR
THAT RACING GAME WITH 3 CARS, WONKY PHYSICS AND 30 FPS
BLOODBORNE COMPLETE EDITION
And many many ps3, pc and ps vita ports
I'm not saying they'll bring the Base SFV to Xbox. They'll probably make a Super edition or Arcade edition or some shit and put it out there. I couldn't care less, because the only gaming machine I have other than PC is a 3DS, but I don't think Capcom would miss out on that kind of profit.
Street Fighter V is being partially funded by Sony and that's coming to PC. It's possible for Bloodborne.
Is this meant to be their new slogan - Greatness Awaits, This is for the players, and now Let's play?
Surely they didn't do it to put a trademark on the 'noun' to describe gameplay with commentary?
>The Last Guardian
>Dragon Quest XI

gg no re
I didn't get a PS4 for western games..
Sony don't own the Street Fighter IP or Street Fighter V.
Sony do, however, own both Bloodborne and Demon's Souls.
They also co-developed and published both releases (something they are not doing for SFV).
Bloodborne on PC is as likely as Zelda U coming to Steam, in so far as it is nigh impossible.
>he needs a 140fps platformer
>he thinks people are interested in horizons because of the 'experience'
>he hasn't been waiting for guardian
honestly I'd highly recommend strangling yourself
>all that weebshit
Horizon and Bloodborne are all that interest me on there, and R&C is about the only thread of PS's former variety left (Indies aside).
Still a better console than that blunder-of-an-introduction that is the Xbone, but otherwise fuck brand-loyalty.
I'd add Ace Combat 7 to your selection, I agree either way.
I hope to fuck Kojimbo can release some much needed mech combat games for variety.
I'd love something more tactical, and open world overall. Bring me back to Chrome Hounds damnit.
>NON-FINAL ACTION WRITTEN
>Non-Final Action Mailed means that the examiner has found issues with the application and outlining them in written form. Such issues can range from simple changes to the application to outright refusals for various reasons (e.g., where the application is confusingly similar to another mark already filed or registered)
>The Applicant has an opportunity to either: 1) satisfy all the outstanding issues listed in the action, or 2) submit arguments refuting the examiner’s contentions or refusals.
>Applicant’s generally have 6 months from the date the final refusal is mailed to respond. However, Applicant’s should review the office action itself to confirm the response deadline.
>If the Applicant submits a response and fails to either: 1) address all the issues listed, or 2) persuade the examiner on any of the issues raised, the examiner in most cases will issue a final refusal.
Means they probably aren't going to get it.
Japanese =/= weebshit
Only like 2 or 3 of those games could be considered weebshit. Just admit that those are quality games that you call weebshit to try to justify just owning a PC and Wii U.
Been forever since I played any flying sims, but I definitely would like more mecha myself. Was huge on Armored Core until 4's dullness and not sure about V yet, but I'm hopeful From will give it another go.
I liked Front Mission, Mech Warrior & Chromehounds the most over the years.
Front Mission died for me around the time of that weird ass TPS they made, AC went to shit with those last two. Fuck'em
I'd like some tactical methodical mech games I still weep over that E3 trailer for what Mechwarrior was supposed to be.
>Hiding in the husks of a sky-rise in a shut down Vulture with a Beagle Probe stalking a Madcat
NO NO NO NO NO
THE PS4 HAS NO GAMES! ITS AN OVERRATED BLURAY PLAYER! STOP CALLING ME NAMES!!
And most of that "weebshit" I mentioned indeed meets the facial-to-body artstyle of anime, from basic to anti-subtle. Not just because they're Japanese.
I'll at least say Gravity Rush looked cool, but most open-world games without mod-support lose interest fast, unless this one pulls a rabbit out from its hat.
One man can only take so much...
Sony here I come..
Nice unrelated asspull-nonpoint there, kiddo.
WE DID IT BROS
SONY WINS AGAIN
MICROSOFT KEKS BTFO
Star Ocean 5, Digimon Cyber Story Sleuth, and World of Final Fantasy are the only weebshit on that list. There's really almost no filler there either. Fact o the matter is PS4 is shaping up very nicely, and the lineup is comparable to PS2 golden days.
Christ, what is it with PC only fags dismissing every exclusive as shit just to try to justify only owning one platform. Are you poor? Stupid? Rabid valvecuck?
Any that don't try to emulate human-TPS's and keeps an enjoyable balance + proper customization is good enough for me.
Oh yeah, forgot about Last Guardian. Hope that somewhat delivers on the wait.
And here we find the shitposter in his prime season attempting a mating call
The best thing about this is that these kind of images have existed since the very start.
And we are 2 fucking years in and the goddamned console still has fucking nothing lmao
I hate Sony but please make this the beginning of the end for youtube and twitch.
I'm not getting high hopes, the last time I was on sony's side was before the release of ps3.
>Star Ocean 5,
>World of Final Fantasy
You forgot to add
>Dissidia Final Fantasy
>DQ (though I'm more lenient to it using the less-common DBZ style)
Persona, Gravity Rush, Dissidia, and DQ are not weebshit in any way.
So at most 5/31 are "weebshit" and you realize this image isn't designed to cater specifically to you? It's for a wide variety of tastes. That's still 26 quality games in 1-2 years + unannounced exclusives.
Now please, get that asspain checked out by a doctor or something. It's getting out of hand.
>Persona, Gravity Rush, Dissidia, and DQ are not weebshit in any way.
Oh man, forget about any "asspain", this is YLYL now. See ya mane.

>if you mention the Xbone, suddenly resolution and framerate matter
I want off of Sony's wild ride
It should fail outright.
That would be like trying to copyright the word good or bad. It's so widely used at this point that they have no right to it and that's before considering the fact that they have no basis for claiming they invented it.
I mean Kleenix lost the right to the name they fucking created from nothing because it was too widely used.
Not to mention it's so broadly described that it literally includes all streaming according to their description.
This is by far the dumbest attempt at a copyright I've ever seen. Why are Sony such arrogant faggots?
I don't even know what retard at Sony thought this was a sane idea.
>thanks for the 40 millions sales
>now time to start buttfucking your ass
Stay classy Sony.
Once you're on top the ass raping starts.
pretty good actually, what about them?
are you trying to mention AK on release which was horribly optimized, until august's patch?
I wouldn't even know why you're mentioning SFV beta though.
Even if it gets trademarked, it can likely still be used for youtube videos. Nintendo has trademarked "Mario and Luigi" but they're not sending lawyers after Italian pizzerias that happen to be called "Mario and Luigi's Pizza".
I believe copyright and trademarks only apply to the type of media they specify, which is why you can have a book, a movie, and a video game all with the same title about different things
>tfw you're not pathetic enough to get involved in console wars and just play whatever you like on whatever platform you like
Feels good. Anthony Burch has a better life than you autists.
4chan is literally for weebs, you fucking redditor.
Moot even said if you don't like anime, get off 4chan.
This place is for weebs, always has been always will be.
If you don't like that, you can literally find a different website to shit up.
I mean I know this picture is bait but this is how I actually feel.
Sayonara Nintendo, we had a great time for the past 25 years. I will miss the old you and forget the neo-you.
I never owned nor played a single playstation game in my life. It's time to finally change that.
I'm definitely getting Bloodborne and Last Guardian once it comes out. But what about other games? Is Nier actually good? What should I be looking forward to? I should say that I really dislike interactive rollercoaster movie games so I know for a fact I will hate stuff like Uncharted. I'm completely open for Japanese games, but not the full waifu anime panty shot quest XVII as I'm already a bit too old for that.
>Not being everything master race
You Sony/Nintendo fan shitflinging get more amusing by the day.
Ichi dai mas kero kero watanabe kuma bukame dai? Wara waru komensei inu nadura, nei? Ko kore wa nanji da suda ko manji manji daisoujou isha ne?
Why do I always see Persona 3 and Steins;Gate in these as if they are somehow PS4 exclusive?
For one, they aren't exclusive so why are they treated as such?
Secondly. Steins;Gate 0 isn't getting localized. So why do people even list it to begin with?
Are these lists made by falseflaggers or something? I don't really get the point of them.
>Is Bloodborne a timed exclusive or multiplat?
Eventually it will be multiplat
>Is Uncharted 4 a timed exclusive or multiplat?
No one cares
>Is No Mans Sky a timed exclusive or multiplat?
Umm.. do you even pay attention to games, anon?
>Is Street Fighter 5 coming to other consoles?
YES YOU STUPID MOTHER FUCKER!
>Persona 5 still in 2016
I wouldn't diss the PS4 yet. PlayStation tends to have sleepers and late hits.
plus you don't buy a console during its early years when developers are still building games for it and the early games are pretty much tech demos
>Eventually it will be multiplat
Literally never ever.
It's a Sony owned IP, co-developed by Sony Japan Studio, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment.
This is like saying "eventually Zelda U will be multiplat". It's not happening. Ever.
>YES YOU STUPID MOTHER FUCKER!
Again, no it isn't.
Part of the SFV contract states that due to Sony's funding of the game, it will never (including re-releases and remasters) grace any console that isn't Playstation.
If you're going to attempt to correct somebody, at least make sure you're correct yourself.
I am a lawyer and yes it is but this won't work anyway because you can't copyright things you didn't create and Let's Play was created by some random faggot a long time ago and is now widely used. All it takes is for pewdiepie or that faggot brit to say "uh no we object to this copyright" for it to fail harder than Nagasaki.
>LE APPLE IS LE DEVIL
I'm sick of this reddit fedora tier meme. Apple makes beautiful and powerful products that are pure luxury. Everything they make is a great value despite what you idiots call a "premium" price.
Posted from my iPad.
Helldivers isn't developed by a a Sony first party studio like Bloodborne.
It was also published by Playstation Mobile as a branch into "app games" for Sony. Bloodborne is not a mobile tier game like Helldivers, so don't expect it to get a Playstation Mobile release.
The last time a full SCE published Sony owned IP got released on PC was 20 years ago with Twisted Metal 2.
It's not just not something that happens, and exceptions to the rule don't negate the rule.
Anybody try to convince me that Sony has does something interesting since this
they made blu-ray the standard format but is that even interesting? It's easier to manage DVD collections and many people don't feel the need to have exclusively blu-ray.
OH! So now it's the Uncharted and David cage machine?
Because I'm pretty sure yesterday it was the WEE-A-BOO machine
And the day before that it was the dude bro casurr CoD & FIFA machine
Hmmm, I wonder if everyone is deceiving me or if it actually has a lot of games to chose from and /v/ is just a bunch of drooling retards.
>Because I'm pretty sure yesterday it was the WEE-A-BOO machine
Not until 2016 is over.
PS4 is dude-bro console but thankfully it will be getting worthwhile Japanese exclusives.
Much like I predicted back in 2013 though, this thing won't be useful to own until 2017. Glad I waited instead of paying early-adopter tax.
Gen 7 taught me well.
>unreleased games and multiplatform titles
And I didn't cross the amazoness game because I don't fully judge them before trying them out like you sonyggers do, I actually give a chance to games, that's why even though I called Guerrilla out on their bullshit survival open world meme I'm still trying it first.
>Not until 2016 is over.
Looking back at the games I played last year:
Tales of Zestiria
Not a weeb machine. Not a weeb machine at all...wait a second!
I also got a couple of big western releases, but mostly just western indies I don't see how it's not weeb enough already
Tales of Zestiria
Okay, so you don't own a good PC. That's fine for you, but I do. So my list becomes.
Now, EDF4.1 is an expansion and its to a game I don't care about at all.
Disgaea 5 is a game I would play, I would never buy it at the asking price though. Also many others didn't buy it either, it did very poorly for NIS. I'm wondering what the future for NIS is if they don't do some damage control.
Bloodborne is a weak souls title on the whole, I've had the opportunity to try it out without buying it. It's a fine game, but as a Souls game its weaker than other titles I already have access to and guess what, Dark Souls 3 is coming soon.
It's a poor investment as an idort, until 2017.
If you like it because your position with hardware is different, that's fine.
>Bloodborne is a weak souls title on the whole
>as a Souls game its weaker than other titles
Can't tell if bait or you just have shit taste
BB = DeS = DaS >>>>>>> DaSII
>I'm not a massive PCuck prick with stupid high standards,
>meme, also I don't have high standards
Okay well defend it however you like.
Quality retort, glad you spent the time on that.
>But still is there ANY PS4 owner who has Bloodborne and doesn't like it? Sounds odd honestly
Sure there is, plenty of people have shit taste.
Just like plenty of people claim their Dad works at Nintendo or that they played the game at a friends house and seriously you guys it's bad!!!
>I like how your posts keep getting deleted
Me too, but don't complain about that. It's against the rules and you will get a temporary block.
>you still think I'm the other guy
No, I think it's entirely possible you're not and it doesn't matter either way.
It's still a shocking coincidence that most people who don't like Bloodborne seem to have played it at a friends house, like that other guy.
>le name of a series with ridiculously high number at the end to mock the high amounts of games in the series meme
that doesn't really work when there's only 4 games in the series you dumb fuck
