Peeking in at the metacritic scores for launch titles for both consoles, I'm glad I waited, especially considering the lack of BC (for the time being) on both of them

 

X1

Forza 5 (82)

Dead Rising (75)

Ryse (60)

 

PS4

Resogun (83)

Killzone: Shadow Fall (73)

Knack (59)

 

And a whole lot of cross-gen 3rd-party shovelware (hi, NBA Live 14 [45 for the PS4 version, X1 is not yet rated]).

 

The highest rated game for either console is a PSN game ported over that's 4 years old (flower).

OTOH, two additional games came out today:

 

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (90)

Super Mario 3D World (94)

 

No need for me to buy a new console anytime soon. :yes:

What does BC stand for? And hi?

 

Anyways, I still don't know which console I want to go with. Actually, I'm leaning towards the Wii U now more than ever haha.

BC = backwards compatibility.  Both consoles have the ability to do it via cloud streaming, but it's not available now.

 

Hi meaning, "I'm looking at you NBA Live 14, you POS".

Indeed, I'm waiting until I'll be able to play them in an emulator with upgraded loading times and graphics! Year 2040, here I come!

FYI, the reviews for Killzone and Knack are complete bull****. I don't know about the Xbonx One reviews, since I don't have one...yet.

Oh haha. I was reading hi as an acronym for some game. And yeah, I don't know why I didn't piece BC and backwards compatibility together.

But those good things will also come to those who didn't wait, and meanwhile they're enjoying games that we aren't.

Resogun and KZ MP will tide me over for a while. Probably won't complete KZ SP.

You run that risk when waiting to buy one too.

I stopped listening to reviews a long time ago. I try to tune out the noise and try the games for myself.
