Not a single good reason :\

Also you can play the ps4 offline.

I'm surprised for the serious responses! This is a humor website.

LOL Funny read, I was like -_- are you serious at first? than I noticed the article was made for a good laugh. Nothing serious peeps

funnyordie is a site that, like 1up, should indeed die. Just die already.

Like 1up they do not want anyone to decide for themselves. They do not act as a conduit between developer and gamer in the manner sites and mags did a decade ago. No, instead we have some self appointed pompous jerk telling us what we should do, what you should think, and what we should or should not buy. No thanks pinheads I can decide for myself. I am tired of it and these sites need to go. They have no place in gaming.

These clowns should be especially afraid of the PS4 where gamers can rapidly sample and decide for themselves as to buy or not buy a title. At that time everyone else will realize what some of us already know - sites like funnyordie are the trash of the internet and are a disservice to gamers and their hobby.Good riddance.

@Hydrolex

because it makes certain people without a next-gen console feel better about themselves. lol
darkpower  +   503d ago
You guys DO realize that Funny or Die is a comedy website, right? They do things for the sake of getting some laughs. Nothing more (and they do a pretty damn good job of it). It's not to be taken seriously, yet somehow it is, anyway. They're parodying the people who are posting the baseless FUD articles to begin with.

Perhaps it's because the people who are acting like they don't know what comedy is on here are just trolling because they know that it's getting the reactions from others that're commenting. Simply because there can't be THIS many people who don't get it.

Morganfell's ridiculous comment, whose comment is clearly meant to be from someone who actually took this thing that seriously, is a clear example of what happens when you have no one in the PS fanbase who's never allowed to have a sense of humor.

I'm a PS fan, and I get tired of the constant FUD, too. But I got this joke, and I know of this website, and immediately knew what they were doing, and found it rather funny.

Seriously, guys, we can't be THAT blind to not understand this kind of stuff. It's a funny parody from a comedy site. Either people on here are trolling hard or they can't get their heads around that. God help us all if it's the latter.

You can tell the idiots on N4G are overly defensive nerds with no sense of humour, who couldn't recognize satire if it bit them in the ass.

This is a satirical website with reasons that were so completely nonsense you should've gotten that they weren't serious. Like not getting PS4 because the inevitable PS5 will make it look ancient. I mean c'mon people, take off your fanboy hats for once in your life.

The "news" on N4g is 99% trolling and rumours anyway, with little to no facts backing up anything. There's no editor or fact checker, so don't sit there in your high chair with your head up your ass thinking that N4G has some sort of credibility and should be taken seriously as a hard news website.

@Gamer1982 wow your IQ must be like 10....

Reading all the other comment makes me wonder, WTF i'm doing in this site, you guys can't even tell the difference about an article or humor, taking this serious like if it was posted by a Nintendo/MS fanboy LOL you guys are a bunch of morons really, this "ARTICLE" show the level of IQ of the people on this site.....

I thought it was pretty funny. The first two reasons were similar to something a troll would say but after that it was more obvious that they were being funny, even if you weren't familiar with this site and its satirical nature.

MikeMyers  +   503d ago

There is only one reason not to buy a ps4..... Your not interested in playing games. Otherwise you would be a douce bag not to buy one. I have a wiiU already collecting dust and with destiny coming on ps4 with exclusive content I'm not buying another Xbox just for halo. Article was funny tho.

Dammit... I remember the attempt they shown to bring it back in the PS2 era. You have no idea how disappointed I was when it got cancelled.

Its a joke article lmao PS5 that had me laughing.
StrongMan  +   503d ago
Oh, I didn't want to give the site hits.
MasterCornholio  +   503d ago
Joke article.

Example

"Sony rolled out a great lineup of new games for the PS4, but one title was conspicuously absent: Vectorman. For those who don’t know, Vectorman was one of the greatest titles ever released on the Sega Genesis. You play new games, but worship the old. One is silver and the other is gold. What do we have to do to get a new Vectorman? Sign a White House petition? Make a Kickstarter? Riot in the streets? The studio that created Vectorman no longer exists, but there was almost a reboot of the series for PS2 according to a Wikipedia article I read way too often. So it’s possible! Possible to waste your life reading shit that doesn’t matter. "
HyperBear  +   503d ago
LOL: "Possible to waste your life reading shit that doesn’t matter."

I did like his reasoning for #6: PlayStation 5
"I heard from a guy with a cousin who used to work at EB Games that the Playstation 9 will be a spaceship. The future is nuts!"

The fact that the source of this article comes from a website called 'funnyordie' should tell you that this is in no way meant to be taken seriously.

How can people not take it seriously when some of the articles are regurgitated or ask stupid like why wasn't the ps4 shown?
Steadyhndz  +   503d ago
From your reason of progression in technology being a reason to not buy something, you're basically saying the following

-Don't buy a cellphone, it'll be outdated by the next one
-Don't buy a 3D LED TV, something better is coming
-Don't buy that Chevy Volt, the new one will be better
-Don't buy that graphics card, the next series will be cooler
-Don't buy that fan, Dyson will make an even better one
-Don't buy that album, they'll make a better one
Have I made my point well enough?

If this is a joke from funny or Die then i think they should try get new writers because there trolling sucks =/
just-joe  +   503d ago
I guess some people can't take a joke.

If there's any reason to not buy a PS4 it would be because you don't have the money. Bills come first.
darkpower  +   503d ago
Good lord, the amount of stupidity on this site astounds me at times. How, after so many people actually said that this is a parody article made by a website that is known for a big or acting like they are carbon copies of Nancy Grace?

Seriously, people, I thought it was pretty funny and clever. Some people just don't have any sense of humor, I guess.
Sarobi  +   503d ago
How do people consider this trolling... you obviously don't know what it is if you think that anything that jokes or knocks at something is "trolling".

1 Ultimate reason why you should pre-order PS4 and ignore negative articles:

-Its the PS4.
black911  +   503d ago
Who Approved this Article??
Adolph Fitler  +   503d ago
And heres why I am. Because I f#@king want to, as it is my choice & not the choice of a bunch of internet fanboy warriors that hate Sony & try every ploy in the book to sway both people they know, & people they don't know, into buying, or not buying certain products.

Every single negative article on this crap site, has started with Sony....Not MS, not Nintendo, just Sony exclusively.
I went through several pages of stories, & the 3 or 4 negative stories, are ALL Sony related.
And, 99% of the negative stories that hit this site, are exactly the same.....anti-Sony. So, I say, whoever is running this site, has a vested interest in tearing down any & every Sony positive, & holding any negatives Sony face, under the microscope & turning any little Sony related news into something of nuclear holocaust proportions.
Reverent  +   502d ago
Dude, the guys who wrote this article LIKE the PS4, they wrote this as a joke/parody of all the other doom articles. Get that through your head before you comment.
deanobi  +   503d ago
Hahaha its true you shouldn't buy a PS4, buy a Wii U! XD
Deku-Johnny  +   502d ago
Why not both?
Tzunoy  +   502d ago
Observe closely what the ps4 promise and what it doesn't do. Then buy after a year.
kingmushroom  +   502d ago
after a year ? no i can t do that.

Funny or die? I don't know if I should kill him or myself..
Deku-Johnny  +   502d ago
The article is on 'funnyordie' and people are complaining that it's not a serious article. I think the people in charge of N4G should start making people complete an IQ test before they're allowed to join.

What's worse is that even after so many other users have explained that it's supposed to be a joke, we have more people (like the comment right below yours) who are too dumb to bother reading ANYTHING.
