No Real Benefit in Buying PS4 Over Gaming PC – Nordic Games BM

"The business development manager at Nordic Games, Reinhard Pollice, had some interesting things to tell us about the PS4 and the also about their recently released game Painkiller Hell and Damnation, in a yet to be published interview." (Next-Gen, Painkiller Hell & Damnation, PS3, PS4)

Reasons to get a PS4 over a PC:

Cheaper then PC.
All games run on high settings without the need to upgrade to get them.
Being able to share games without have to buy any code keys to use games.

An you say PS4 doesn't have to many good exclusives? Sorry but PC doesn't get to many as well and PC is losing alot of developers do to more people buying games on console then PC. COD being one of the biggest ones.

I bought over 150games on Steam in these last 6 years.

A) they cost me much less then console versions, i might have saved USD 2-3K just because i bought them on PC and on Steam discounts.

B) Had i bought them for a console i would have been pulling my hair right now since i wouldnt be able to play them on the next box.

Console gamers may argue you can keep the PS3. Yes you can but what happens after it fails? Do i keep buying it again and again? What happens if i have games from the PS2 gen too? So now am i supposed to buy the PS2 and PS3 again and again just so i can maintain my library.

I would rather prefer 1 modern machine that plays it all. Sorry but i dont have the space for multiple boxes and their accessories mean while the cost to maintain so many boxes.

"All games run on high settings without the need to upgrade to get them.

First its not cheaper, games are cheaper on PC. 600usd PC outperforms the PS4 as of today.

Does the PS3 run all games at high settings? No it doesnt, in comparison to PC, PS3 runs games in Low settings with no AA, blurry textures. Same will be the comparison for PS4.

"An you say PS4 doesn't have to many good exclusives? Sorry but PC doesn't get to many as well and PC is losing alot of developers do to more people buying games on console then PC. COD being one of the biggest ones."

PS4 maybe getting 2-3 good exclusives a year, not everyone likes all exclusives. PC has more exclusives than any console, you need to catch up.

PC gamers are happy developers like Activision are solely concentrated on consoles since their model of business wont work for PC gamers aka rehashing the same game every year.

T900. Yeah and I could get a virus that totally screws up my computer, and get this, I just bought a brand new pc, and I can't get on steam, I have windows 8 and the flash driver is having issues. And dont tell me its me, It happened to another win 8 comp I had. BTW, the real reason to get a ps4 is cause Sony makes good hardware that last, and its all proprietary, so all my friends and I need to do is pick up and play. Screw pc gaming
brave27heart  +   985d ago | Well said
All the PC fanboys trying to claim no bc is an issue. Like my PS3 is going anywhere just because im buying a PS4. And no, im not too lazy to change a couple of leads over. Anyone who says its too difficult to keep swapping needs to take a serious look at their attitude.

Oh, but what about when it breaks in a few years time?

Then I'll buy a new one. A PS2 can be bought for £15 now. PS3's will be cheap in the future if I need to replace it.

Theres one reason I wont buy a PC. Its not price, because they're pretty close. Its not that the box under the TV (whatever your choice is) is designed to do just one primary thing - play games and developers have tools to make the most out of whatever power is in the box.

The reason is simply that I can drop £300-400 on a console this year and know that in 5,6,7+ years time that console will still be relevant. That the person over the street isnt going to have a more powerful Playstation or an Xbox with better graphics. Developers know whats under the hood and they know that every console of that type will be the same. Theres no minimum requirements on consoles, and because of this look at the quality of games they can make for consoles is of the highest level.

I dont slate PC players for their choice of gaming rig. Why do PC players insist on claiming superiority over consoles?

If a person is not excited about PlayStation exclusives, then they're not a very good gamer. I don't give a crap what your preferred platform is... if you're missing a platform, you're missing quality gaming experiences. Multi-plats are great, but many exclusives go above and beyond multi-plats because they can play to the specific platform's strengths.
Axe99  +   985d ago
@ T900 - if you think your $600 PC will stack up against a PS4. It's the mistake all PC-only gamers make when looking at specs, and its just as silly as claiming the PS4 will beat high-end PCs.

PC's have a huge barrier to reaching optimal performance through Windows (and yes, you could game on Linux, but then you'd be playing with less games than the PS4 will likely launch with :P). Then, on top of that, devs have to cope with numerous different hardware configurations, leading to far lower optimisation.

Even now, consoles perform far better, per dollar of cost - than PCs. Claim that a $250 PC that can give you visuals like God of War: Ascension or Halo 4 and they'll lock you in a loony bin. Tbh, I'd wager that $600 PC wouldn't actually give you much better, and it costs more than twice as much.

Then, of course, you have the extra work to make things work. The tweaking, the changing of .ini files, the selective patching and whatever else can (and often does) go wrong. One of the biggest reasons I prefer my multiplats on PS3 and Xbox 360 over PC (I have all three - PC for grand strategy and exclusives) is because I know the game will work every time. No hours of searching forums and trying different fixes just to get to the menu screen (hello Mass Effect, and Victoria 2).
Temporary  +   984d ago
PC gaming is overrated. No good developers, some good games here and there. Only good thing about PC gaming is that you can pay for upgrades to make your game look shinier :)

Real gamers have both PC and Playstation, but only a fool would say there's no benefit to getting a PS4 over a PC. If you like games, PS4 is where it's at...PC just wont ever be at the level of console games. And I dont mean visually, before you PC elitists come at me foaming at hte mouth.

BattleAxe  +   985d ago
Most exclusive PC games are low budget, and have little to no mass market appeal. The only PC exclusives worth getting excited for are Warcraft, Starcraft, League of Legends and maybe ARMA, and that's if you're into those types of games. If you want to be a PC only gamer, thats fine, but you're only depriving yourself from some of the best games in the industry by avoiding Sony's consoles.
Nightfallen  +   985d ago
I have a beefy PC I use for gaming as well as a PS3 and PS4 at launch. For FPSs and MMOs I stick to my PC. But for third person games, amazing PS3 exclusives, netflix on my big tv and splitscreen gaming, I prefer console. I'm not a fanboy that sticks and defends one or the other, instead I enjoy both worlds.

There are really thousands of exclusive pc title a year? Are u for real? Even if it's true, no one plays a 100 games a year let alone thousands!

I have a gaming pc too but just like him, I love to play on my PS3 more and it will be no different with the PS4 as long as there are games I am interested in. So...it's not worth it for me to have spent the amount of 3 ps3s to buy my pc because I love gaming on my PS3 more? I don't think so! So it's the same too vise versa

Bigger IP and exclusivity (timed or otherwise) on console in this PS3/PS4 transition year are a benefit imo. Have been for a while.

Critical PC IP like Diablo 3 seem to make their way to console with much more regularity. The reverse, not so much. The PC only *just* got Brutal Legend this year. Arkham City and Dark Souls came late as will other multiplats I've wanted like Metal Gear Rising, if it comes to PC at all.

Reinhard's own game and PC exclusive 'Painkiller: Hell and Damnation' (a 64% on metacritic) will also release on console in another month, but with better received FPS out there like Killzone, the PS4's Killzone:Shadowfall feels like a safer investment. Exclusive wise, consoles seem to have the benefit this year, Rein'.

reynod  +   985d ago
What happens when a game like Skyrim, COD, Fallout, Farcry 3 releases on the PS4 and you have bad frame rates and the devs arent doing anything about it. You are stuck with no options.

Atleast on the PC you have the community making patches and fixes or you can upgrade to more powerful hardware to play the game. With console you are just stuck with your hands tied behind your back.
Minato-Namikaze  +   985d ago
@reynod, good thing i dont play, skyrim, fallout, or farcry (i dabble in COD mainly because of the old lady). I play a few games on my PC, mainly RTS games, but the majority of the games i like comes out on consoles.

N0S3LFESTEEM  +   984d ago
Lol... way way way too exaggerated there. PC's will last a lot longer than 4 years... most definitely not on max settings though but at this point low settings now are better looking than what the current consoles can do. My friend was able to play BF3 on a i7(1.6GHz) laptop using the integrated graphics which weren't even close to reaching the minimum specs required for that game. The 560 is what most games recommend at the moment... the 680 being necessary to max out most games. A single 690 or a titan would last you through the next gen console life.

s45gr32  +   984d ago
it depends on what the gamer is willing to invest in regards to PC gaming. The issue with PC gaming is the understanding of the pc parts. Most people buy PC parts according to brand and price which leads to constant problems, upgrades, and headaches. You have to look for the details like ram check it's clock speed, watts usage, amount. Power supply make sure it's certified preferably gold or silver, dual rail, number of watts it contains. When it comes to PC gaming is all about what the parts offer and that are compatible with one another. Those that look into the details can build an efficient, low power (watts usage) long lasting gaming pc.

I really don't understand, why do people compare consoles with pc?
They are different products in the market just like, tablets, mobiles, televisions etc.
Ok, they both play games but nobody compares tablets with consoles and pc regarding graphics because people know that there is no comparison because every product can be different.
Secondly consoles are dedicated gaming machines and you can carry game discs and the consoles, where ever you go, for example you have a party at friend's house you don't need to setup them.
Thirdly, ease of excess, you just put the disc in the console and play, no error messages, no lengthy installation process, you don't need any prior knowledge just to play the game and there are no settings.

such as what pay for dlc, pay for yearly subscriptions, less content for your games. Servers get shut down and the console gamer cannot longer play online no more. At the moment Sony is the only corporation that delivers excellent exclusives that are innovative or new ips, Microsoft just gears and halo and Nintendo same franchises from 1985 like Mario zelda and metroid. Ten there was the whole debate about the PS3 getting hacked which prevented PS3 gamers from playing online. Not that PC gaming is perfect it still has a learning curve dealing with setting up and buying pc parts. Other than maintaining the PC and the learning curve PC gaming is pure bliss.

If all anyone cared about was raw technological prowess, then consoles wouldn't even exist and everyone would be gaming on PC's exclusively already.
Only a certain group of people give a crap about performance above all else...everyone else cares only about the games. It's nice to have both performance and great games, of course, but spec sheets are not the be all and end all.
There's a reason the original Super Mario Bros. will forever be looked back on fondly while a game like the original Crysis will be a mere blip on a few enthusiasts radar.

3. I will buy a PS4 safe in the knowledge it will still be compatiable with all the games that launch for it years after the 1st system is sold.

I don't understand all this hate coming from the PC crowd either.

I build my own Gaming rigs, as most us PC games do, but lets be real. Building an affordable PC gaming rig that will run anything is out of the question with the mass population, they just couldnt do it. They bearly know how to check their email.

The mass population is stuck paying for over priced Alienwares and other name brand junk, if they wan't to game on PC, costing them thousands.

You cannot honestly mean a consumor good will if you tell them that PC gaming is more cost effective then buying a flipping $400-500 console that will last them 6 years.

PC gaming is, and only ever will be for enthusists that don't mind upgrading the parts every few years, which is costly.

And don't bother telling me you can run crysis 3 max with [insert $500 budget build here]. The average consomer does'nt have access that that, If it ain't on Best Buys shelves, then its not an option for the masses.
dc1  +   985d ago
You're spot on Mikeyy.

I'm a PC/PS3 gamer.

I upgraded my PC to run The Witcher 2 on ultra settings a couple of years ago.
The total upgrade cost was roughly $600.00 (Upgraded Graphic card, power supply (for graphic card) and memory). And I'm confident that it is now out of date for high-end PC optimized gaming.

This would never be the case for dedicated console gaming two years out. Further the PS3 has shown absolutely beautiful graphic rendering (see GOW A) 7 years post launch.

In short. It's good to support both.. however, we're are not comparing PC gaming to 8 bit systems anymore.

This type of PC elitism needs to stop.

One would think that being happy with what you have would be enough to suffice a good gaming experience and not how much you paid to make a game seem realistic. That's why I'm excited for the PS4 and everything that Sony mentioned it will deliver. I will always game on PC, but my main gaming platform of choice will be Playstation. Until I win the lottery or land a career in my intended field, my PC won't be getting any overhaul upgrades anytime soon.

And even then there isnt a pc worth buying/building that('ll) has/have a cpu that'll only focus on physics simulation, A.i., etc, not having to push games, and OS related features or functionalities AT THE SAME TIME...

Right but the PS4 doesn't have 8GB of GDDR5 dedicated to just graphics, the CPU and GPU are going to share it, and a decent portion of that memory will be dedicated to the operating system.

That's not to say that 8GB of GDDR5 isn't impressive for a console, but you cannot compare this to the Geforce GTX Titan's 6GB of GDDR5 (which is on an even faster memory interface) and act like it is better.

I doubt the os will use more then 512mb of ram.Don't know why people assume its going to take up a bunch of ram.Hell just look at the ps3 and 360 os both use hardly any ram.With the ps3 using more do to the complex nature of the cpu.
papashango  +   985d ago
Did you miss the Sony presentation where they said they want Cross game chat, background downloading, more social features running in the background.

This uses up RAM. Sony will have to reserve at least 1-1.5gb of RAM even if you are a gamer that doesn't use all this. limiting themselves to 512mb for an OS AND all the background apps is asking for a disaster to happen.

512mb is plenty to do all that and more.Mind you the ps3 only uses about 64mb for the os.

On ps4 you know ps4 games will work, and thats it.. and no, I do not care about backward compatibility with ps3, but on pc is it not so simple, as they is not defined pc1, pc2, etc...

Reason to buy a PS4:

Its NOT a PC.

Actually, it basically IS....it's a bunch of off the shelf PC components customised a little and bunged into a console shell.

its an x86 pc that's locked down and it's maker requires licenses and fees to develop for.

consoles just need to compete with last gen consoles

as long as it is a major improvement over the gen before, that is good enough

you console only gamers should totally forget about setting high end pc gaming in your sights, this shit will never be possible on ps4 or nextbox

2660x1600-only on pc
8x-64x anti aliasing-only on pc
60-120 frames per second-only on pc
huge dedicated servers
community projects

next gen consoles will be lucky if they even start out with games in native 1080p, most likely is the games will slowly but surely regress down the resolution toilet like this gen until, 5 years from now, you'll be playing in 720p or less again because devs keep adding more shit on screen but your weak console cannot handle it at 1080p anymore, you get 900p, then 843p, then 779p

lol, this is all true, get ready, next gen ps4/720 are nowhere even in the same gen as a high end pc

already last gen and not even out

You are a fanboy. You only look at the bad points of consoles . If we didn't have a next generation consoles gaming would not evolve because consoles sell more then pc and developers want money so only few take advantage of the pc.

Do you see any game use more then 8 GB of ram on pc ? None. PS4 will make developers use all they need and that will make pc ports a lot better , easier to make and take real advantage of pc powers for the next 2 years.. so it's a good step for gaming. Sony also bring new tech too like the 8GB of GDDR5 Ram . Not even pc have that right now. We all know pc right now is almost as good as a ps5 if it ever came out. But it's stupid to avoid the good points of the next generation consoles. So get over it.

Note: I agree on what you say and most of them are facts but i don't like how negative you are when you talk about next generation consoles. Just open your mind and be more smarter. I know you could. It's useless talking like that. Each person have it's own reasons for buying the hardware he choose. I would even give you a bubble if you just removed the hating talk toward consoles.

How come PC gamers always seem to come across as a bit nerdy. Is there really any benefit to the high end resolutions your spouting about? could the human eye really tell the difference? HD at 1080p looks bloody brilliant, that's all gamers want.
Higher resolution does not mean better graphics. I'd rather enjoy the games than worry whether its playing on a resolution setting my eyes can't even differentiate from one another.

I would agree with you if you didn't say the bit about the resolution. There is a noticeable difference in quality and sharpness as screen size goes up or down. Everyone knows that Apple's Retina displays are wonderful as PPI goes up, which is what high resolution does.

Just a decade ago, I bet none of us thought that 1080p was useful as Standard Definition was the standard.

all these were done on ps3 already.So at least let us get real final system specs before we decide what it can an can't do.

What a troll... I would gladly take one of your bubbles but I see you only have one left. I'm a console gamer. I play games like Unfinished Swan, Flower, and Journey along with GoW and Uncharted but not because their graphics are OMG INCREDIBLE!!! But because they're amazing experiences. I could give a rats ass about graphics. Hell I can still turn on my super nintendo and have a blast with Mario.
When did graphics decide what system was better? Well, don't I look like a complete ass; here I was thinking it was all about the games and you all are fighting over which system can run something that look like Toy Story the best... Graphics should only ever enhance the experience, they should never BE the experience, and when that day comes I'll give this hobby up all together!!!

GRAPHIC doesnt make you a gamer

For all the console kids.
Neither does CoD

For all the PC elitist's neither does Crysis 3 on uber settings, rubbish story, finished in 6 hrs. Generic shooter with flash graphics does not a great game make. So linear it might as well have been an on the rails shooter.
Optical_Matrix  +   985d ago
Yeah except for, y'know, the games that you can only get on PS4, let alone the games you can only get on console that PC misses out on. Not to mention a familiar service/ecosystem. What a stupid thing to say.
Jek_Porkins  +   985d ago
Do some people not understand that not everyone likes playing games on a PC? I seriously cannot stand to sit and use a keyboard and mouse and sit in a chair looking at a 20 inch monitor, granted I know that I can hook up a regular television but you know what I mean.

I have been gaming on consoles since 1988 and I don't plan to stop anytime soon. I spent a ton of time building Achievements and Trophies and gathering friends and teammates online and I'm not going to switch to a format where there is no set standard.

Its as simple as this. I have a job, I work all day and in the evening I just like play a few games. It's either: turn on my tv (in the living room with a couch) then my PS3 and I'm ready to go. or: go to a separate room, turn on a pc, wait for it to boot up and then sit in front of a monitor.
Console gaming is just a more relaxed experience, it's gaming without hassle, for many in the world that's all we want.

Though I love pc gaming it is not true that there is no real reason to get a PSfour because im getting one aswell it has many amazing franchises
dafegamer  +   985d ago
If a game looks sharp and nice, but plays like shit then its not worth it for me. I have my favorite exclusive games on Sony and Nintendo consoles, so there is no need to buy a gaming pc for me. I'm not even interested in MMO too
