The system is great value. Just got to decide which launch title to get now...

I'll get Killzone:Shadow Fall for sure, and Driveclub through PS +.

As for the rest, I'll have to see how Watch_Dogs, Battlefield 4 etc. are in their PS4 version compared to PC.

Im'a get Watch_Dogs, Knack, and Driveclub through PS Plus :)

I might get the camera, the way I see it is that I'm missing out on some features :p

Those are great games and I really hope Sony gets a lot of support from JRPG makers like Level 5. The 3DS and Vita are great, but I want to play some console jrpgs too. Speaking of which, I am looking forward to Tales of Xillia.

I would like to say that I had a choice in choosing next gen, but I don't think I did. After a hiatus of gaming for a few years I got back into it last June. The thing that sold me on ps3 over 360 was PlayStation plus with its new instant games collection. Sixth months later plus made it easier for me to buy a Vita. Sixth months after that The Last Of Us has a deal for $50 off on the Pulse headset if you buy both.
Now I have a decent headset which should be compatible with ps4, the second screen/companion device, and (when ps4 launches) about 6 months of plus left. When you're in that position Microsoft has to pitch one hell of a console to switch you over.

BOTH NEXT GEN CONSOLES WILL BE FUN. That's the bottom line. "Fanboyism" really just rubs off as insecurity to me.

Edit: forgot to include my answers to the question.
I'm all for Killzone and Knack myself, but I think the multi platform games will be the best sellers come launch.
Truthfully, the launch titles are just there to tide me over until inFamous and The Division come out, but your mileage may vary.

I would love some Level-5 RPG's on the PS4. Buying one eventually anyways.
Blastoise  +   654d ago
Love to see what these guys have got in the making for PS4
BABYLEG  +   654d ago
I would love to see what they have now. The launch lineup for ps4 is so EH! The games just seem so lame to me. I don't care what they have coming, I want everything now plus more in the future. Some people will buy the cheaper system because it looks like a better value, yet its not.
Blastoise  +   654d ago
How good the launch line-up is an opinion

But the PS4 is more powerful than competition, so it IS better value. Why pay more for something less powerful?
BABYLEG  +   654d ago
What game has Sony shown that says "hey, we're the most powerful" because the games seem like barely a step up from ps3/360. The Os is... Where is the OS? Not all the time is power a good thing. Would you bring your fastest car to Laguna Seca or something that can handle corners and doesn't stutter or stumble with certain tasks? Ps4 Is powerful. So is XO. Their output will be identical whether or not you think one is stronger over the other. All opinion. I would rather a company backtrack on policies.. Good policies and bad. Keep most of the good, or a company that shows what they want you to know. Sony is hiding a lot

You are lost in such way that i feel sorry for you...
Edito  +   654d ago
Just tell, me a car with a 560HP and a car with a 300HP wish car do you think is more powerful??? Answer that and u will have ur doubt cleared...

So Dark Cloud 3?
abzdine  +   654d ago
now mister Akihiro Hino, show your commitment to PS4 and give us a Dragon Quest, Ni no Kuni 2 or Dark Chronicles at TGS.
Cryptcuzz  +   654d ago
I would love it if they are making a Ni No Kuni 2. I am currently playing that game on the PS3 and its truly a masterpiece both in terms of gameplay, music, story and visuals.

The game is really really nice to look at, minus some aliasing here and there, but I can only imagine how it would look if part 2 was being made for the PS4!
Pascalini  +   654d ago
But it only seems great value over xb1 as it doesn't include a device like kinect

People are so stupid they don't realise this
DoesUs  +   654d ago
Yes but you get a headset with it. Its a deal sealer.
TimeSkipLuffy  +   654d ago
I would welcome if Microsoft wouldn't force us to buy Kinect. I don't want to be monitored by the US government XD
thrust  +   654d ago
Do you use a bank card?
jeffgoldwin  +   654d ago
the camera on your phone and laptop has already been watching you.
Nyromith  +   654d ago
The camera in my phone is in my pants or inside the desk. The camera of kinect is in the living room, staring at me all the time, even in darkness. Why should I want it in my living room?
thrust  +   654d ago
The gadget show in uk had 2 gamers play the Xbox one and ps4 and they said you do need the cam on the ps4 or you are missing out on lots of little fun features.

So yeah I agree with you, once you make the packages up there is very little difference between the consoles, I will get both tho.

Just getting the ps4 at a later date
iamnsuperman  +   654d ago
I laughed when I saw the gadget show. That show is horrible. It is so uninformative and it doesn't get tech right. They have turned into the top gear uk of the gaming world but at least top gear can get cars right These are the two pictures on the website


I mean how uninformative is that.

Here is that feature for anyone's interest http://gadgetshow.channel5....
One the show the guy said it was needed to play the games. But it doesn't that is just misinformation. The user comment on the page reiterates the misinformation.

If you want news/reviews/previews about anything tech related stay well clear of the gadget show

The camera does add a few features, but I think you'll be fine without it.
The guy didn't really explain why he reckoned we needed the camera. it just uses features in games and helps track which user is playing with which controller when playing multiplayer on one PS4. but you still don't need it.
thrust  +   653d ago
You will be fine with out the cam yes, but I do not like missing out so I would get the cam, for me the difference is nothin between the 2 consoles.

Am getting the the Xbox first because being an online gamer I like to speak alot more English speaking people are on live.

With psn I have only spoken to about 4 English speaking people in the last 4 months and they where hard to understand because the headsets/Bluetooth are not good.
slimeybrainboy  +   654d ago
God, you people. That's like saying you buy a car but it has a caravan attached to the back. Even though you don't want it, it makes the car more expensive. Why would you buy a car like that when you can buy a cheaper car that is faster and doesn't have the caravan you don't want? Also the PS Camera is £50 the PS4 is £350, all together £400. The Xbox One is £430. Where's the value in that?
majiebeast  +   654d ago
Nah its more powerful by quite a bit as well.
Bathyj  +   654d ago
But people dont want a device like Kinect forced on them. MS are so stupid if they dont realise this.
Kayant  +   654d ago
And it becomes over-priced when a person doesn't want it because they don't like motion gaming or navigating the UI with their hands.

Not everyone wants or will use a kinect.
Alexious  +   654d ago
Are you kidding?
It's 100$/€ cheaper, has a more powerful hardware, the headset included and it doesn't even have a power brick.

There's little contest in terms of value.
Salooh  +   654d ago
''Looking at your picture''

That's the troll face . I hope it's not offensive xP . Seriously , are you kidding ?. 450$ and you will get the same value if kinect is what you call value ...

Just add the PlayStation eye to the package and it would cost 460$ which is 40$ cheaper than the Xbox One.

Motorola RAZR i

Still won't be making the mistake of getting a console at launch again.

I will wait a few years.

- While the price is good now it will be even better in a few years
- Most serious hardware and software issues will be solved
- the premium price for new system games will be gone
- proven good games will be released
- launch titles almost by law of the universe suck
- devs will be optimising more for the system and doing more with the system
Brucis  +   654d ago
That's pretty much the smart way to go about things. Launch buyers generally seem to get burned, though I'm not against doing so myself if there's something I really want.
jeffgoldwin  +   654d ago
yes and no. I mean consoles will already come with a 1 year warranty and you can find several places to sell you an extended 3 year warranty if you feel the need for it.
ravinash  +   654d ago
I'm not going to wait years, but I will probably get it after a few months when I have enough money to burn and enough games I want to get.
Bathyj  +   654d ago
Even if you save a hundred dollars for every year you waited (which you wont) it wouldnt be worth it. Not even close.
Einhert  +   654d ago
would more than be worth it for me, plenty of games to play on PC in the meantime.

If you only have a PS3 It would be understandable.

Yes but you also miss out on 2 years next gen gaming

If your really that hard up with money that you need to wait for a 100 pound price cut then fair enough but 100 pound to me is nothing- the price of a new jacket the price of a tyre on my car.
feraldrgn  +   654d ago
Can't believe it's been 11 years since dark cloud 2, I hope we get #3 on the PS4.
Or maybe even a new IP from them, I look forward to what they plan on bringing to next gen.

OT: objectionally thinking, the £100 price difference means a lot to people in todays economy.

good now make me dark cloud 3
Bigpappy  +   654d ago
The price shows Sony's commitment to offering a lower price than X1. That is a all it shows. how they allow developers to use the system and the support they give will determine their commitment to developers.
Festano  +   654d ago
Another software company that speaks well of ps4, and talk about Level 5 which is a great company.
