Reasons why the PS4 will be the first console I buy with my money

As we draw nearer to the launch of the next round of powerful console upgrades from the likes of Microsoft and Sony, the profound effect of this is that when these consoles land on our retail shelves they won’t come cheap and because of how much they will cost many gamers will have to make the choice of buying one to forgo the other completely or wait till when the price drops in order to be able to buy at a later date.

We know nothing about it or the next Xbox. Far too early to be joining the bandwagon just yet. What I do know is I will be holding off on getting a Wii U until it gets more games I want.

The best thing to do is wait at least a year to see how the software support is going to be and how the hardware materializes. Everything from hardware failures, to online support and how the multiplat games turn out.

Mike, you do realise that people on this site would worship a dog turd if it had a sony label on it.

They will blindly support them no matter what. I liked my PS3 & 360 and will probably get a PS4 or 720. I too am going to wait and see what each has to offer.

When has a PlayStation system not been awesome? PS1, PS2, and PS3 were all the best systems of their generations.

MikeMyers1959d ago

Well, let's see shall we? A $600 price tag for starters. Which relates to my comment on waiting since the prices will go down. The PS3 also had YLOD issues, not nearly as widespread as RROD on the Xbox 360. So again waiting is key as they get the bugs and kinks worked out. Another issue was 3rd party games that often didn't come out as well as they should have. Seeing as how most games on any platform come from 3rd party publishers I would think this too would be a reason to wait.

Sony is also in a very unfamiliar territory with it's financial crisis. We have no idea how far they want to push the next hardware, if they are willing to take a loss on the units or what direction they want to go with things like cloud services looming.

I am a consumer first and foremost. I am not one to jump on any bandwagon early on solely based on history. History doesn't always repeat itself and I focus on the games, not who created the systems.

Here's the answer to your question.

"We've never been first. We've never been cheapest. It's about being the best,"

"the number one goal is to be the best machine and that's what we're always focused on."

DOMination-1958d ago

They didn't focus on being the best with ps1 or ps2. In fact arguably the ps2 was the weakest console last gen. Even the dreamcast was more powerful.

Yet we all know how it turned out. If PS4 is a cheaper less powerful console i think it'll do better. I just hope the rumours about SCE London being involved are true because Japan knows nothing about making a good OS

My worry is for reason #4, remember SONY, is not designing the HARDWARE this time so their expertise won't apply for the FAILER RATE for the orbis.

BitbyDeath1959d ago

Last i heard, Ken Kutaragi who made the PS3 is designing the PS4.

As opposed to your parent's money? Money taken from a Salvation Army bucket? The possibilities are endless!

Games, core games, cloud games and free games.

Free multi-player. Un matched quality in first party games for ps4 that are not shooters.

everything else MS wins(like bing & halo 5)!

TheCookieMonster1959d ago

You do realize that Google is backing the PS Orbis.

Riderz13371959d ago

Bing? Is that really supposed to be a selling point for the Next Xbox? If so, I loled.

TheCookieMonster1958d ago (Edited 1958d ago )

I agree! bubbles

stage881959d ago

Cannot wait for PS4 to come, I have a feeling it will have the best hardware out of all next gen consoles again.

Kur01959d ago

no way of truly knowing that yet.

execution171959d ago

think I'll start saving soon, so I won't be like how I did with the PS3 and go for broke ^^" well worth the $650
