Dear Sony,

You may know me as NOSjoker21, another faceless PSN account among many, but I would like to say that I have been an avid fan of yours since the days of playing Crash Bandicoot, the original Tomb Raider, and Tekken 2 on the original PlayStation. So it goes without saying that I am massively psyched for the PS4′s debut this fall, and I can’t wait to get my hands on Gran Turismo 6, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Infamous: Second Son, hell… even the newest Call of Duty looks like it will be a fun game to play, despite me and my clan’s perpetual complaints about it.

However, I’m not here to discuss my rabid fanaticism for your products, instead, I’m here to vent some concerns that arose when I watched the initially impressive, but overall comical display of star-studded ineptitude that was the reveal of the XBOX One last week – which for all of it’s hype and impressive hardware specs, apparently lacked the ability to come up with a more impressive name.

Now, I know that Sony has yet to reveal any physical media or peripherals related to the PS4, with the exception of the Dualshock 4. And although I have nothing but (guarded) optimism for the big reveal of your console that will likely occur at E3, never fear: I, as a dedicated Sony fan who’s owned every gaming platform you’ve ever released, from the PSP to the PS Vita and all of the non-portable gaming consoles, I am more than happy to advise you on three things to do and three things to absolutely NOT do next month when we receive more information on the console. Let’s start with the ”no’s”, shall we?
