PS3Home: Reasons Why PS3 Fans Should Upgrade To the PS4.
I'm upgrading.But I'm still keeping my PS3.
Title should be "reasons why gamers should upgrade to ps4" Ps4 is an upgrade with its games, hardware power , features and unified services.ps4 is an upgrade no matter which system people are playing. Even the xbox one isnt up to par with the ps4.
PC might wanna have a word with you.
@fireseed: My gamepc can stay in the studyroom. I prefer the console in the livingroom :)
Im going to the xbox one .. more power and the cloud... wanna follow me? See you on the cloud.
Lol thx man u made my night that was funny as hell
lol...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "wanna follow me? See you on the cloud" lol.....another user on N4G called you out as a troll...haha...but this comment was funny "thanks for the laugh"
Only if it's the flying Nimbus.
i'm doing the exact same thing Majin. so much to still play on PS3, and so much to play at launch for me. i don't need any article(s) to tell me why i should upgrade.
Same, I think at launch I'm still going to be playing my PS3 a ton. Think Beyond: Two Souls, Puppeteer, GT6, Rain, Takes of Xillia, Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, GTA V, Season pass single player content for The Last of Us and BioShock Infinite and plenty more including my tremendous back log.
@Majin-v...I absolutely agree,I'm still playing PS3 games & by the end of the year there are about 6 other titles I want to get including games in the next year,so I'll be holding on to my PS3 well into next year but I'll be purchasing a PS4 around tax time(Feb 2014)by then Infamous:SS should be released.
I have no reason to up-grade to PS4 til Sony stop supporting PS3. games i want coming out on PS3 so far.
The article would have been more interesting if it was titled "Why gamers should upgrade to a PS4 at launch?" I'm still finding a reason to. Every point made in that article will still be valid in 2014 and beyond. The only difference is that the PS4 will be cheaper and there will be better bundles...and better titles. Btw, the whole "diminishing support for the PS3 thing" is BS. The PS2 arguably had its best moments with games like GOW2 and Persona 4 between 2007 and 2008, while both the PS3/360 were out.
I was planning on also waiting until the prices dropped but one reason made me preorder... Playstation Plus. All I am going to do is buy a PS4, nothing else and since I already have plus I will get free games. Playstation Plus is a good reason to get a PS4. I'm really excited for Outlast and Don't Starve, not really into driving games.
Price cuts in 2014? maybe some bundle in fall holidays... I'm not going to wait a year to save $50.
Not until infamous:SS. lll still be playing PS3 for awhile tho.
Same position, nothing interests me too much at the moment so i will definitely wait till the end of next year but will be picking up X1 on release.
Agreed. I enjoyed PS2 even though I didn't have the luxury of owning one till the PS3 shortly came out, then had a X360, and didn't care too much for that as I got burned out on Gears and Halo. The PS4's Specs are very nice, coming from someone who builds their own desktops. The games look nothing short of phenomenal. Infamous is one of the best IP's Sony has, not the only IP (In case someone says I'm hinting that). It has a great lineup, but I've never played Killzone, otherwise I'd understand the appeal of the game. But yes, Second Son makes it a must buy, as well as the hardware in general.
I'm upgrading to the PS4 but I'm still gonna keep my launch PS3 for back comp. I'm excited to be apart of this launch PS4 as well, been a Sony fan since PS1 and they keep giving me reasons to not back down!
I think a lot of people will be upgrading from PS3 and even Xbox 360 to the PS4 simply because of one recent release... The Last Of Us. (More) Greatness Awaits.
If you can afford it then go for it at launch. GTA5, Beyond 2 Souls and Dark Souls 2 will keep me busy til mid 2014 though. By then PS4 launch games will be a bit cheaper hopefully specially the ones that will be released on both PS3 and PS4.
In late 2014 maybe, not intersted at all.
Mid 2014....gta...watch dogs....saints row...i dont have time for two playstations and my wii u
"New Graphical Capabilities (obviously)" Have a PC for that. Xbox One also has new graphical capabilities. "It’s basically an All-in-one Entertainment Box" So is the PC & Xbox One "Exciting new Software and Content is Likely on the Way" Same for PC & Xbox One "Future support for the PS3 is likely to Diminish in the coming Months and Years" Not for a long time. Sony supports their consoles for a long time. This is nothing to worry about. "The new Controller (the DualShock 4) is a marked improvement over that of the PS3’s" Touch pads? Share buttons? Improvement? lol, no. "Don’t you want to be on the cutting edge of Console Gaming?" No. Also, same could be said about Xbox One. These reasons are terrible. You're not convincing anyone to buy a PS4 with that list.
"Have a PC for that. Xbox One also has new graphical capabilities." Not as good as the PS4's will be. Try again. "So is the PC & Xbox One" Again the PS4 is better, especially if youre not being a neckbeard in your mancave. Xbox one will likely require a mandatory 60 a year for services like Netflix and the likes. Nice try though. "Same for PC & Xbox One" The article is not talking about PC or the Xboned and besides the PS4 will have better games just like the PS3 did. "Not for a long time. Sony supports their consoles for a long time. This is nothing to worry about. " I concur. "Touch pads? Share buttons? Improvement? lol, no." The Dualshock is awesome and one of the best controllers because of its versatility, the added touchpad and share button are only additions but I am looking forward to them. "No. Also, same could be said about Xbox One." Well its obvious you dont want to be on the cutting edge of console gaming if youre talking about a PC and the Xboned.. " These reasons are terrible. You're not convincing anyone to buy a PS4 with that list." The PS4 doesnt need convincing, if anyone wants the best conole gaming experience they will continue to do so if you are a PS3 gamer this gen. Personally I think PS3 fans got the greatest treatment from Sony this generation and that in and of itself is reason enough for people to upgrade to the PS4, anything else besides the PS4 is going to be subpar by comparison.
I'm just going to say it now. PC is better than Console gaming. You can modify the controls, use any controller on it, PS3 or 360 or SNES, Wii, Wii U, ect. They make programs that emulate the controller as a Gamepad, plus the 360 Controller has it's own native driver and is widely supported by the PC Library. Educate yourself on Steam by Valve. I highly doubt you can upgrade the graphics card in your PS4 or Xbox One over a period of time to make the games look better and run at 1080p and 60+ Frames per second. Every video game is designed on PC and then ported to consoles. If you at least have a high end graphics card or a $800 Gaming Rig there is a huge difference. You can tone down the graphics on a game to make it run smoother, to reduce lag. You can mod a game and increase its replayability. I have purchased Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition on PC, and I do own it on PS3. The Graphics are completely different on PC. On Max and 1080p the game has at least PS4 Graphics, reduced input lag, and runs higher than 60 frames per second. Now I will buy a PS4, which I plan on after Second Son comes out, but for those as you said that do want the "best console gaming experience". Yes PS4 will give you the Best Console Gaming Experience. Console Gaming. If you want the best gaming in general, get a decent PC rig. P.S. Neckbeard? Man-Cave? Not everyone plays World Of Warcraft these days, rofl.
@ mkda "I'm just going to say it now. PC is better than Console gaming" No it is not. You might prefer pc gaming. You're arguments are not wrong. I do believe you when you say MK looks better on your PC than on your PS3. However you are overlooking the most important part imo. I like turning on my console. Entering a BR-disc and just hold my controller. I don't want a pc in the living room. I don't want a keyboard when i'm on the couch. Pc gaming is different than console gaming. You might even argue that pc gaming gives you more raw power, but it has never been "better" . Not in the pc man days. Not now.
@MKDA_Scorpion "I'm just going to say it now. PC is better than Console gaming." Subjective. "You can modify the controls, use any controller on it, PS3 or 360 or SNES, Wii, Wii U, ect. They make programs that emulate the controller as a Gamepad, plus the 360 Controller has it's own native driver and is widely supported by the PC Library. Educate yourself on Steam by Valve. " So its better because you can use more controllers on it? "I highly doubt you can upgrade the graphics card in your PS4 or Xbox One over a period of time to make the games look better and run at 1080p and 60+ Frames per second. Every video game is designed on PC and then ported to consoles." I dont need to, most games that come out are designed to run at 720p and 60fps or maybe 30, do I really want to upgrade something for more money just so my character runs smoother? "If you at least have a high end graphics card or a $800 Gaming Rig there is a huge difference. You can tone down the graphics on a game to make it run smoother, to reduce lag. You can mod a game and increase its replayability." LOL 800 DOLLAR RIG!! Okay so lets see a PS4 is going to be 400 bucks and I never have to upgrade it, while you buy an 800 dollar PC and you have to keep upgrading it every now and then, not only that but PC's become obsolete way too fast. (at least according to the neckbeards) "I have purchased Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition on PC, and I do own it on PS3. The Graphics are completely different on PC. On Max and 1080p the game has at least PS4 Graphics, reduced input lag, and runs higher than 60 frames per second. " See now thats the thing about fighting games, they NEED to run at 60fps, why? frame data. Certain moves in Mortal Kombat can be punished in certain frames, so if you mess with the frame data youre messing with the competitiveness of the game. not only that but most tournaments are run on PS3. messing with graphics and fps doesnt make a game better. "If you want the best gaming in general, get a decent PC rig. " Yeah I cant wait to play all those awesome exclusives by Naughty dog and the likes!... Oh wait! "P.S. Neckbeard? Man-Cave? Not everyone plays World Of Warcraft these days, rofl. " To me, all PC gamers are neckbeards. Now I dont have anything against PC, I personally dont game on one because Im not really into building PC's or anything but I do believe that the PS3/PC combo was the best gaming experience this gen.
Each to their own I guess. Valid points though, I respect them. I still prefer some games on PS3 as well, yes The Last of Us looks really good, I have yet to play it but have heard great things. PS3 does have some amazing exclusives such as Heavy Rain, Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid, Sly Cooper, PS All Stars and more. I won't try to deny it, because I own most of those and still prefer them stay on their intended console. Mortal Kombat is best run on PS3, I agree, but the input lag is terrible due to NRS still not getting the memo for it. They just nerf characters that need to be buffed and buff people who should be nerfed. I.E Superman's F2,3 Ice Breath combo, and his EX Laser that pushes full-screen. But yeah, depends on who you hear your info from as far as them becoming obsolete too fast. Laptops don't last long, as far as that goes. Didn't intend to seem condescending, but thank you for your insight. I love my PS3, and I'm getting a PS4 after Second Son comes out, but there are some things best left to PC, such as FPS's.
I already did :)
Its just another tedious <insert number of reasons you can fabricate here> reasons why: - x is better than y - You should buy y instead of x etc etc not only is gaming getting a bit stale, so are the articles that many websites decide to put out.
Five reasons Im upgrading to PS4 1. Naughty Dog 2. Media Molecule 3. Suckerpunch 4. Sony Santa Monica 5. Quantic Dream Theyre the reasons. All that other stuff people argue on and on about like RAM, DRM, sharing, etc etc dont matter to me as much as those reason I listed.
Well said. Multimedia features can go suck it if it comes at the expense of the games. It's the content that is king. And the developers provide this content. Sucker Punch w/ Second Son all the way!
Still no fighting games for the PS4, and no Hack & Slash games
Both of which will be coming soon.
Guilty Gear Xrd is for next gen console. And i heard ArcSystemWorks also working a new fighting game exclusively for PS4. But i'm sure new Tekken, Soul Calibur, Virtua Fighter, and other fighting games will come to next gen consoles. The same also can be said for H&S games. But i want some mecha games for PS4. FromSoft definitely will make Armored Core VI for next gen consoles (PS4/X1/WiiU). Besides AC, there's no indication that Kojima will continue ZoE or Polyphony Digital will revive Omega Boost for PS4. It's sad really, cause with PS4 specs, i'm sure they can make an awesome mecha games...
Warframe is hack and slash. And free.
Hahahahahaha, no, just no.
diablo 3 on PS4 in 2014
I have only one. Let ballers ball. PS4 baby tell your friends.
Dont you just had pc boys they alwayd think they are so cool and better than any other gamer, but pc shooters are eady with a mouse they dont understand its harder on the controllers. All we hear is pc is better yea they are for work related issues ie payroll spreedsheets emails so on so fourth, I prefer my console on my 47 inch sony bravia smart tv worth 1200 rather than a little monitor sitting at a desk playing with my old boy.
Infamous Second Son and the outstanding lineup of games in 2014 especially the ubi ones and rpgs
I will still keep my ps3 because of ps+ !
I just bought a Garnet red super slim...it should look super sweet right next to my shiny new PS4!!
PC only fanboys are very annoying. most of us excited for the PS4 are console gamers and not interested in spending thousands of dollars keeping an overpriced gaming rig up to date. And PS4 is a really decent gaming rig in itself considering planetside 2 was confirmed to be running at max settings on PS4. And consoles keep the playing field level by ensuring nobody has a hardware advantage, which means as long as you have decent internet you can compete toe to toe with everyone. And I personally would love to take my dual shock up against PC and X1 and show you all I will pwn you all with the best controller (which is why M$ won't allow it, BC they'll look bad when they're proven wrong about which controller is better).
I'm trading my Xbox 360 elite bundle and games in for ps4 games. No Microsoft next gen
