Why Ryatta put his bets on the PS4 despite reviewers like Adam Sessler reccomending but to pre-order anything, as well as having faith in Sony and not Microsoft and why you should do the same if you agree.. for either Xb1 or PS4
"Why I've Chosen the PS4" Better Hardware Better Software Better Exclusives (Naughty Dog *mic drop*) Better Free Games Better TV service I feel bad for those people that plunk down $500 to get CoD DLC a month early.
Yeah because everyone buying the X1 is doing so to get COD DLC early..../s Seriously, grow up kid.
Yeah that last comment of his was kind of unnecessary.
Better Hardware- Yes Better Software -How do you know? What does that even mean? Isn't that covered in your next point or do you really mean software that runs the console? Better Exclusives (Naughty Dog *mic drop*)- Hard to argue against that but so far I think Xbox is bringing it hard...if we talk about the span of six years well we have to wait and see. Better Free Games- I don't consider those "free" games if you have to pay a subscription service for them. I don't consider Netflix "free" movies. Better TV service- I expect nothing else from Sony they have a huge entertainment business side but live TV will always be hard to get away from. I feel bad for those people that plunk down $500 to get CoD DLC a month early. - I am not gonna tell someone how they should spend their own money or feel bad. They are enjoying themselves so be it.
Free games as planetSide2, Warframe, WarThunder, DC Universe Online, The Elder Scrolls:Online, BlackLight:Retrubution, and since EverQuest Next is made by Sony Online Entertainment hopefully that too. So yeah. Better free games.
Better Free Games- I don't consider those "free" games if you have to pay a subscription service for them. I don't consider Netflix "free" movies. Better free games- this being Planet side 2,War frame, war thunder,dc universe, black light retribution and Drive Club are all free day one of system drop. This means these games are not behind the pay wall EVEN for online multiplayer. EDIT:Dcj0524 Beat me too it lol.
@dcjo524 - Agreed, but Elder Scrolls Online won't be free since you'll have to buy it in the first place.
Better Exclusives- First Party talent once again. Alot of Xbox One exclusives may be timed. TitanFall devs are keeping their mouths shut about the game appearing on PS4 only because they were paid big bucks not to comment on that subject. Lets be honest, as far as first party talent, Sony trumps Microsoft. Sony didn't even reveal what ND(second team), Sony Santa Monica, Media Molecule and the rest of the teams have for PS4. Honestly, if I had to take a bet, PS4 will have better exclusives.
Bcoz PS4 is more powerful than the
That's 1 of the many reasons. How about because its more affordable? How about because Sony isn't forcing any stupid camera on people? How about because Playstation Plus gives you lots of AAA free games over the year? I can keep going.... (BTW, check your comment before hitting submit, its incomplete)
I pretty much chose it for the price/power advantage and all my friends are getting PS4 so I'd be alone on Xone multiplayer.
I think by this point, most people who are going to buy a console at launch have made their decisions already. For me, it's PS4, since Microsoft offers me nothing I want with the XB1. For others, it's XB1. Some people will opt for both. It's not a question of one being better than the other, as much as a question of which of the two consoles is a better fit for your personal gaming interests.
Reasonable analysis is not for this site, lol
i much prefer the sony exclusives to xbox's. thats the only reason i need
I like how there's all these articles that need to shout from the mountaintop of why a person chose a certain game console. It's almost like if there was a post titled why I became a Mormon. Should change the title to why I became a tool (for page hits).
I choose the ps4 because i trust sony on what they do with their technology and because sony really never failed me big time as a consumer and because they truely show that they care about us :)
I prefer the ps4 over the xbox1, but how many articles do we needs stating this? "why i prefer ps4 over xbox1", "why i prefer xbox1 over ps4". This articles get kinda annoying after a while.
For me its the Ps4 due to ps plus, price, better first party studio support, better cataloug of games into its later console life.
Xbox One, minute one.
because the PS4 is hype!
Ive chosen the ps4 as well since I havent been let down by a sony console yet. If they can do what they did with the ps3, ill be happy.
main reasons we jumped ship... 1-Better Spec-ed console for $100 cheaper. Maybe it won't make a difference, but with consoles having 7-8 year lifespans, it might. 15min DVR, party systems, crossgame chat, download and play options, and the pscamera is still and unknown factor. 2-Ps Plus... the value which Sony rewards the gamers with is comical. For $10 cheaper a year, sony GIVES/RENTS/WHATEVER SOOO many big named games that i wouldn't purchase, but at least want to play through. Not only that, but my friends and i purchase maybe 1-2 of the same games a year, so all these free games allows us to game together more often. I mean seriously, look at the list of free* games all in the first year (since they've added HITMAN, BF3, Uncharted3, LBP Karting, XCOM) .... http://www.ign.com/articles... 3-BIG concern was controller, BUT most hands on stuff i've read and watched say it's on par with the 360... so i'm at peace with that. I hated the ds3 and loved my 360 controller. 4-Value... i LOVED my 360 and way preferred gaming on it over the ps3... BUT... times have changed. Sony has shown me that they WANT my business and will reward me for it. All microsoft ever offered in return for the $60/year membership was online gaming, party system/chat, and access to things like netflix. So what exactly is microsoft offering this gen? Exclusives? maybe. I'm honestly more interested in microsoft's exclusives at the moment, but over time with the 360, they stopped trying. HALO, GEARS and FORZA are what they fell back on, at the end of the day. That's it. And i could care LESS about halo or gears... sure it was cool years ago, but its a dead horse that's still being beaten. Sony has introduced unique titles like MLB the show, UNCHARTED series, HEAVY RAIN, The Last of US (amazing experience btw), Infamous...etc. I'm still buying both consoles, but my circle of friends aren't as fortunate.... so we're choosing one. And we're going with the smarter decision. The guys i know going XBone are only going because of loyalty to the brand. A brand that has since flip flopped so many decisions that SOMEONE decided were the right ones initially. DRM? Gung ho defensive in the beginning. "just wait, just wait, it's the future"... well not really, as they reversed that. Headset included with console? Nah... Gamers can use the mandatory Kinect.... oh wait, reversed.... kinect required for console to function? "It gives developers unique opportunities for gaming"... reversed again. Not a whole lot of faith in their decision making thus far. But like i said, i'm still getting both, it'll just be my number 2. And we all like a good number 2. ;D
Fair enough and a well reasoned post.
Why do people say they hate the DS3 controller when its almost the same as the DS1 and DS2 controller, and they praise DS1 and DS2.... You Don't need to worry about the controller, many reviewers who had hands on with it praised the controller. They even said its on par or even better than the Xbox One controller. I actually like the DS3 controller better than the 360 and I own a PS3 and 360. When it comes to shooters Xbox 360 controller is better hands down. But when it comes to platformers, RPGs, and fighters, I prefer DS3.
good point. I guess i shouldn't have said "Hated".. but truth be told, i do put in a lot of time in FPS games (COD,BF3) and maybe that's where my dislike stems from. The time that i've spent with FPS's on the ps3, my hands have cramped up from the smaller feel of the controller and awkward R2/L2 buttons. It's never been too much of an issue when playing The Show, Skate games, Formula1 or Tiger woods... even still, i prefer my 360 controller, it just feels better in my hands
Im choosing a ps4 and wii cause in the long run they will have more and better exclusives than xbox one,heck next year wii u is getting smash bros,bayonetta,wonderful 101,Mario kart,and sonic lost world,and personally I could care less about features besides netflix,and you have to have gold to use it on xbox which is stupid to me.
Why i'm not surprised
Sony got guts! PS3 look what happen they took major loss for us gamers to have new tech. Hdmi, wireless connection(standard), Wireless controllers(built in battery),Internet (web surf), and free online. I know PS4 has Plus membership paywall now but I already have it. I'm stupid if I unsubscribe to Plus. I bought so many games discounted up to 75%. Soul Sacrifice, Murasama Rebirth, and Tomb Raider 20$ with dlc. Crazy sells and update during night thing is nice. ^~^
either way, this next gen should be a lot of fun. DIVISION here i come!
Over a year away at minimum until Division is released.
that's ok. It'll be amazing when it's done
I chose PS4 because I've had an nice, consistent history with their products, along with their gaming consoles. Barely ever been dissatisfied. & the games/offerings are great. Even at the times when they did'nt deliver certain promises, I still felt contempt with what they did deliver.
SONY first party talent is why I chose PS4.
ps4 for the games XO for the dedicated servers unless ps4 has them then ill just get a ps4
Sorry for those that have to choose one
Don't be sorry. They'll have a great system (PS4) or a good one (XB1) , with a plethora of great games to play every year. And they can save money on hardware , online fees , and accessories.
Not everybody HAS to choose one. Many people decide to.
people have short memories. M$ basically walked away from the core in favor of the casual gamer. Now they have a camera in every box! We will see next year and the year after who made a good gaming decision. Enjoy those launch games. You are falling for the M$ trap.
OT- It's "recommending"... These people need to learn basic spelling.
PS4 is the clear choice for gamers. Just look at the amazing games and support from this gen! They have never failed me, I have bought a Playstation since the first and Ive never looked back!
I'm interested in what 3rd party exclusives the PS4 will be graced with.
Look Ive already got a PS4 preordered, nobody cares about your self-important article on why you're getting one. Please, go find something thats not a complete waste of time to write about.
