I'm not intended to start a flame war, but considering this time the competition is almost the same (hardware wise speaking), why are you people gonna buy the new PS4? Maybe i'm talking from the perspective of a new PS3 Owner some of you know i'm and i not know all the advantages, but right now i'm in the middle of a desicion here about buying a new next gen console and it seems obvious for a owner of a PS3  buy the PS4. But, is that obvious?

Thanks for any word of advice.

KillZone Shadowfall :p

 

I personally, because I've only had playstations since sega, and in all honesty, I'm not interested in having a centralised media center in my games console, the Xbox One is far better at this, if that is something you need.

I like the exclusives, they were more my cup of tea.

And I've already committed to a ps4.

I wouldn't call myself in either camp to be honest. I own all 3 consoles - last gen I bought the Xbox 360 at launch, and waited for the PS3 to drop a bit. I'm doing it the other way this gen. I don't want a camera. Nor do I want to pay for one I don't want to use. And I generally prefer the PS exclusives - Killzone, Infamous, etc.

I think the basis for anyone's decision should be based on games - look at whats coming out, look at what did come out for PS3 and Xbox360 and see if either one appealed to you.

 

Games like Uncharted, infamous etc are always going to be repeated at some time for PS3, just like Halo and Gears on Xbox. Obviously where things aren't announced its a risk but I think there will be more.

Yeah, at the bottom of the well of a discussion should be picking the console with the games you want.

 

So if you buy a ps4, you must prefer the games coming out for it.

 

Personally, I want one thanks to the game lineup.  Everything else about the console that I like is just icing on the cake.

 

The only issue is what to get at launch.  I'm debating it up to the last minute since I will not buy two consoles at launch, that's just a huge waste of money imo. 

I'm a multiplatform owner, so whatever I get now, it wont be my only console for long.  So this whole console war bs is beyond me.

Yes, I am getting a PS4.  I have it pre-ordered, and it should ship at launch.

Reasons for buying PS4 over the One

1) I owned a PS2, PS3
2) I never owned an Xbox, or 360
3) Never had an issue with any sony product
4) Don't have a use for or want or need the Kinect
5) 100$ is a big difference, especially with point 4
6) The game line up on PS4 is more enticing to me than the One
7) I don't use voice commands, nor do I need something that controls my TV.
8) I don't like the metro interface
9) I don't want to have to pay to access things I should get for free
10) I don't like how MS announced the One or all the reversals they have done
11) I don't like how MS emphasized the Media features
12) The PS4 in my eyes has the power to outlast the One
13) I prefer the dualshock controller over the xbox controller

I bought my first console (Xbox 360) less than 2 years ago, only because I could get it with the Kinect for $200.  I also expect to wait until the One goes for that price before getting it.  In other words, I can wait for a few years; my life doesn't revolve around having the latest and greatest games the minute they come out (I'm looking at you, GTAV), and waiting for that long means you can get a shitload of games for dirt-cheap.

 

After the PSN fiasco, rootkits, the removal of features, customer information leaking out repeatedly and more, I've been boycotting every Sony product for at least a decade--whether it's consoles, DVD/BluRay players, TVs, what have you.

It seems to be very difficult for some to refrain from making this a VS thread lol

For some though they are buying the PS4 instead of the One and theirs reasons are why they are getting the PS4.  So while it is not a PS4 vs One thread, it is a PS4 purchase thread, and when it comes down to it, most people will buy one or the other.  Their reasonings for buying the PS4 in this case, are due to faults with the One.

I'm considering it. And by considering it I mean I have a day one preorder in, but I may cancel it still. I can't see too many reasons to go for the extra $100 of the X1, plus I've always been an Xbox guy and never gotten to play the PS exclusive games. Killzone like mentioned, Uncharted, etc. Maybe a little GT, though I think Forza is superior in a lot of ways, GT certainly isn't lacking and would be fun to play. I'm not much for the Kinect (I like other people to have Kinect so I can play it a couple of times a year :laugh:) I think it'd be an interesting change up and the X1 doesn't thrill me as much as the Xbox and 360 did. That and the PS controller is actually starting to look halfway usable for once.

 

The other option is to buy a couple of video cards for the monster PC I have planned. But I've been so out of the PC gaming world for so long that I don't even know if they have games I'd really want. I don't game enough to make these tough decisions.  :laugh:

If I was buying a console based on the fact that I didn't like the other console, I would rethink my buying plans completely, maybe just use a pc. Its like 'Hey, the X1 sucks, so I think I'll buy a ps4'

 

Think of it this way:

 

Why not lay out what you like about the PS4 and not what you don't like about the XB1?  Why is that bad or wrong?

 

Personally, I have a list of reasons why I want a ps4 and they don't have anything to do with what MS is doing with the X1.  The ps4 can stand on its own without the comparison.  I'm not saying don't compare them, but does that have to happen in every thread?  X1 threads go to heck because people want to argue for the ps4 and ps4 threads go to heck because people want to argue for the X1.

9) I don't want to have to pay to access things I should get for free

 

I agree, but what's that in reference to?  I'm hoping you don't mean online play since you'll need to pay for PS Plus to play PS4 online.

 

Not that that's really a bad thing since PS Plus is excellent.

 

Personally I'm getting both consoles and have both preordered and guaranteed for launch.  Xbox One has more games that appeal to me at launch but I know both will have their share of great games so I'm just getting both so I don't miss out.

PS4 eventually, because I grew up playing PlayStation from the PS1 to the PS3.

He is talking about things like Netflix. 

 

I don't know if that has been confirmed as requiring Gold on the X1 yet, but since it was that way for the 360, it could be again.

I'm getting a One because of its media capabilities to be used as a streaming box, also for when all the family kids come over to play on.

 

PC is where it's at for the real games.
