I have a Titanfall Edition One and decided on it against the PS 4 because no titles on PS 4 seemed that intriguing. Does anyone have both and are there good titles for PS 4?

I have both consoles and I'm enjoying playing games on both, granted some of the titles Im playing on either system are multiplatforms, but Im still enjoying both..

IIRC there are 5 or 6 active posters who own both.

 

The only reason to own either right now is the exclusives and besides the launch titles the most recent incentives are Titanfall and inFamous for X1/PS4 respectively. They also have a small but growing download collection.

 

If those don't tickle your fancy you can survive with 1 console for a while longer as we head into the summer drought. The next few AAA releases (May-Sept), will be multiplatform: Wolfenstein, Evil Within and Destiny.

 

The Order and Quantum Break are the next AAA exclusives and neither has a solid date yet, but expected in Q3/4.

I think Sony are relying on TLoU HD to fill a gap. I think Driveclub will come before The Order as well.

 

1st year drought really is brutal. I would stick to one platform and pickup the other later. A lot of multiplatform crossover just now.

I have both but am not sure what your question is here? You say you did not pick up a PS4 because there are no good games, but then you are asking is there any good games on the PS4? Really? If that is honestly your question, only you can answer that for yourself by looking at the list of games that is available for the PS4 and seeing if they are games you want to play.

 

If you are asking me if I use my PS4 along with my One, the answer is a definitive yes. I use it more to game on then I do my One, as any multi platform game (that are on both consoles), I get on the PS4 since right now they perform better on it. I am not one of these people that insists on saying one controller is better than another either. I can use any controller just fine, so I am going to go where the better performance and resolution is, and right now that is with the PS4 (again, I am addressing multiplatform games).

I have both, but honestly, I don't find the PS4 games up my alley right now. I don't see any performance increase on the PS4 games as others seem to be able to, and the One is better for me in terms of an entertainment system right now.

I own both. I don't own very many games (3 for XB1, 2 on PS4) but both are very good. My XB1 is on practically all day as its my TV/media device but lately I have been playing Infamous SS on the PS4.

I own both but my PS4 doesn't get used as much since the Xbox is front and center and controls my tv consumption.

Get Infamous SS.

Got both.  dead rising 3, ryse, COD, Titanfall, peggle2, child of light on XO and beat all of them except for dead rising 3 so far and still playing titanfall a lot.  Pretty much all of them were good though cod was really only to hold me over on some multiplayer fps till titanfall came out and i wouldn't really recommend it lol.   

 

Got Killzone, Infamous, Knack, ff14,Tomb Raider  and resogun and whatever the last psn freebie was but i havent even played it.  InFamous is prolly the only one i really feel good about telling people to get it.  Tomb Raider is pretty good but if you already played the other versions its not really worth it though it does look a lot better.   FF14 is pretty good if you are into MMOs.  Didnt like killzone much for some reason.   Will prolly pick up Bound by Flame this friday when its released on ps4 so hopefully that is good.

 

Also own a Vita and Wii U and I retired my 360 but my ps3 still gets used.  

Use the vita mainlly for remote play while people are watching tv and on the wiiu I have a bunnch of games but the only real good ones are zelda windwaker remake and super mario 3d.

Both gals live happily side by side on my humble entertainment center. Got PS4 first on launch, debated two months whether to get X1 due to some personal reservations. While i use X1 about twice as much as PS4, both are great devices and i like them equally. If you are a passionate gamer and enthusiast, you will want both. I don't agree with Larry that multi-plats are for PS4, though they do look better on PS4 generally. There are tons of great games on both - i could list at least ten titles on PS4 that are great. Another plus is that my personal impression is PS4 is more reliable, which isn't surprising. Love X1 though i may, i believe she is following in her ancestors footsteps more than we'd like to contemplate...

 

Bottom line is if you have the resources, get a PS4, you're just denying yourself great experiences, there's plenty to enjoy. Just today we'll be getting The Show, which is PS4 exclusive (i mean no Xbox version), and i expect that to be awesome.

 

The pic below shows the situation as it is...both together, though X1 gets more usage. Except Kinect, that doesn't work anymore :s

Have both, PS4 doesn't have as many interesting exclusives at the moment. But I do buy multiplats on it over the xbox one.

Also a owner of both. I try and give both some love. finally got my act together and beat Ryse after not having played it since February or so...

But I've seem to have gravitated back towards my 360 as of late.

PS4 does have some decent games.

Resogun
Mercenary Kings
Definitely, inFamous:SS
MLB the show (well tomorrow)
