What’s Awesome and What Sucks About the New PS4

Gimme Gimme Games writes about the things they like about the PS4 (increased connectivity, cloud gaming, etc) while mentioning what they don't like (no backwards compatibility) about the console. (PS4, Sony)

"The bad news is that Sony has no experience building a cloud network, and they have questionable security (see 2011)."
Thats why they bought Gaikai

But Gaikai are a bunch of noobs when it comes to the cloud which is why it will fail miserably at launch.

This is what the haters want to believe but it wont ever be true since Gaikai has a ton of experience in the field.

Questionable security?

The FBI, CIA, State Department, US Federal Reserve, Burmese Government, and every major online security website have all been hacked by various users, including some within the Anonymous group.

What about LifeLock? They even put up a social security number on their commercial, challenging people to steal the identity. It was stolen, actually...by a mentally challenged man.

I don't believe any single company is safe. They are just lucky.

I know some people will disagree with me , but all I want is a console that plays games without all that other fluff sony added to the PS4.

while a man would be fine with that, a company has to put new things in or people will not buy. The core SP gamer is not enough to reach the profits a company wants. Not to mention other than a camera a company's main social additions are software related and won't make the actual console any more expensive. A user can choose whether or not to actually use them and he knows that Sony has great first party developers making games for him.

Buy one if you can find one. I want a console that plays the games I want to play. Anything else it does is gravy.
