My favorite benefit: Options.

alexcosborn1224d ago

Agreed. The more options available to the consumer, the better.

And yet with all the options, some people still choose to only play CoD... I had someone complaining to me that gaming was too generic and nothing was unique or interesting. And all he played was CoD and Halo. I asked him if he knew about any Sony exclusives, or indie games... He didn't... at all. He even called The Last of Us a "typical Zombie Game"... "been done before".... Sad...

I play all video game genres. CoD AND Madden.

I just hope that our options continue to expand and not start to contract. Limiting used games, online passes, requiring unlock codes, etc. are going to piss me off something fierce. And I hope they figure out a way to register all of the PS3 disc games for streaming once PS3 games are streamable. I'm going to be incredibly pissed if they expect us to buy stuff YET AGAIN to be able to continue to play them on PS4.

This is the industry at it's inception. The games industry is still young comparitively. Look at how far other forms of art and entertainment have come. It will be exciting to look back and know that we were part of a revolution and evolution.

Agreed. There are tons and tons of opportunities for gaming at this point. Great time to be a gamer.

As a gamer that goes all the way back to the late 70's, I have to say my favorite benefit is the DLC. Never had that on the old arcade machines, but just think how much fun the original Mario would have been if the machine asked if you wanted to play some more levels after saving the Princess.

I can't wait to see some of the multiplayer experiences on PS4. With all the processing power the action could get CRAZY!

Wedge191224d ago

Just imagine the evolution of the PS4! What's it going to be like in 2 years? 5 Years? The PS3 has even evolved in the last year or so, and its 7 years old!

Gaming today is light years from where it was even 10 years ago. And don't get me started on how far it's come since I was a kid. I remember playing games on C64 until my 5.25" floppies literally melted.

ftwrthtx1224d ago

I started out with a C64 and a cassette drive.

I started out with a rock, some scissors, and paper.

Oh the things you could do with 64KB of RAM! California Games was the best.
