Moar Powah's Tarabisu dissects the reasons why waiting awhile after a console launch before buying may be your best bet.
I certainly understand where he is coming from. I purchased my PS3 eight months after its initial release because I am under the impression that the first wave of consoles always seem to have hardware bugs in them, so I hold off until the following summer of its release and purchase it. But I do not agree with him in regards to him waiting five years to purchase a PS3 and having an abundance of games to play. While I agree that having access to an abundance of games is certainly true, I do not believe it is the wisest choice in terms of playing with others, if he doesn't care about that then that is fine that works for him, but in five years so many games have been released and conversation after conversation about these games have come and gone that you will be out of the loop so fast. Write down the pros and cons of waiting and make your own decision but their are consequences for both.....the choice is yours....
Killzone Shadow Fall, Drive Club, etc DAY ONE. Besides im eager to jump to next gen. PS4 takes you back to kindergarten and teaches you how to share videos, and games. Some of us will forget sharing is caring. Lol
Here is my dilemma: I want to trade my XBox and get the PS4. I want to scrap the whole damn thing and the fifteen titles I have sitting next to it. I want to do this because I am outraged by MS. Problem is my girlfriend wont let me lol. I have Reckoning, Castlevania (I know late bloomer), Prey (once again late bloomer), and other games that she hasn't played. The funny thing is we picked up a PS1 and have been playing FF 7-9 lol. I am so ready to get a PS console again that I can't stand it. Anticipation. MAKING HEAD . . . DIZZY . . . GOING . . . TO-EXPLODE . .
This isn't new tech like the Cell was AMD has been developing this hardware for a while now so people relax. Also if you feel that uneasy about it then just get the extended warranty before the manufacturer warranty expires.
No reason to wait before getting a PS4 at launch...
I'm waiting for gaming bundles, like 2 games + 2 controllers etc.
I'm not man, I'm getting PS4 as soon as the market settles, hopefully in January . . . besides that I am moving out of my apartment in December, so I really need to be saving money for that. Sucks, but I think my girlfriend and I can finally afford to get it around January, if not a great XMas gift right before we move into a new house, transfer internet, and then unleash the Kraken. Life is going to be sweet on New Years.
definitely agree with the second half of your statement especially. so many games have come and gone. a lot were only given a shot because there was a ton of buzz around the release. as soon as that buzz dies out though, those games are gone. waiting 5 years to finally play a game not only takes away that buzz factor, but its also REALLY HARD to get truly into a game you know is so old. even if youve never touched it before, dated software is always really hard to get into. not to mention, the multiplayer scene on most of those games would be dead. think about how difficult it would be to just pick up mercenaries again. the conduit. fable 2.
Third in my Sony store to preorder. Going to buy additional warranty just in case Let the good times roll!
I understand the logic behind waiting a while after launch, so that any bugs can be identified, but that would require me to not get my hands on the PS4 as soon as possible :(
but, AMD tech is quite mature, and Sony's laptop tech is also mature, i'm not worried. that's what warranties are for...
Hey your comment rhymes...cool...make a song out of it.
Yeah, I already have a WiiU. "Ps4 slim" anyone?
PS4 is already pretty slim, Day 1 for me!
yeah well I dropped a thousand dollars on my Ps3 and my 40gig crapped out on me. Sony was prepared to give me a refurb for $15o. So 360 pros fixed mine for 100 and it crapped out again. I went to Sony because all of the problems that the 360 had, and it still didn't work out too well. That's not to say everyone's experience turned out that way. MS's numbers are off by a few million I would argue. At least Nintendo thinks about the people who sometimes leave their game on for weeks at a time. My 30 year old Nintendo has yet to let me down.
I already preordered so I'm a schmuck right? Everyone needs to join the next Gen. We know the risks. This is no rookie game. This is PS4 vs XBone!
Couldn't have said it better! This has been a long time coming. Holidays cannot come soon enough
Dark Souls 2 releasing in 2014.
Ahhhhh ..... that sucks ! I thought it was releasing earlier.
Is it ALSO coming to next gen consoles?
Most games are releasing in 2014, there are very little at launch.
Killzone Shadowfall, Knack, Battlefield 4,Planetside 2 DAY ONE
Yep ! Driveclub is pretty intereting too
Drive Club, DC Universe (ps4 version with all dlc from pc version), AND Planetside 2 all FREE if u have ps plus. Which is good for me since I wont have enough money to buy a launch title (im saving up for gta 5 and Beyond). So now I get gta 5, beyond, and a ps4 pre-loaded with games already
I have to say, I'm a sucker for KillZone... It's really fantastic.
I bought a PS3 on launch day and I realise I was taking a risk. After all the system did die on me a few times. The first time it was well out of warranty, but the guy over the phone said that he'll have it fixed under warranty anyway which was really nice and I didn't even haggle or ask for it. Despite teething issues....I just can't bloody wait and I need that PS4 in my hands as soon as possible.
The ONLY reason you wait is because every one should know that first generation can have major problems. Just ask people who rushed to buy 360s how that worked out for them. Or PS owners with the fatties.
Is battlefield 4 day 1 for next gen?
It's within launch window time. Meaning within 2-3 months.
yea i wanted to wait , but futureshop have a sale buy 2 games get 1 free. it was too good to pass by
Normally I would agree but the ps4 just has too many good things going for it at the moment. Also the console just looks so damn sexy.
Just curious... What's all the good things ?
Im pretty sure you know unless you have been living under a rock, Google it.
That much huh? I know why I'm buying both on day 1... Do you know why YOU ARE?
