There May Not Be Enough Reasons To Get A PS4 or Xbox One Right Away

Kotaku - "Me, I write about games. That alone, arguably, is a good reason to buy a next gen console. But you, dear reader—are there enough reasons for you to buy in?' (PS4, Xbox One)

battlefield 4 at 60fps 64 players planetside 2 on ps4 with thousands of players and driveclub is enough for me alone to get a ps4. let alone watchdogs, assassins creed black flag, blacklight retribution, minecraft.

I'm so pumped for bf4

I'm so pumped for next gen in general. I think articles like this are moot because this has been the longest console generation I can recall and I've been gamin since it's inception. I want new hardware BAD!

I am steam rolling through all my unbeaten games I currently own, going tear through GTAV when it's released, than gear up for the next generation of awesomeness THAT STARTS ON 11/15/13.

Same Here. Bf4 with 64 players will be awesome and I like how they reward team work this time around.

I thought about Killzone, but the KZ3 multiplayer got old after a while in comparison to KZ2. I also am not sure about the portable shields as I hated the augers in Resistance multiplayer. In KZ3 it seems like nothing but a nade and rocket fest and they nerfed snipers.
The story seems good, I just wish they introduced a 3rd side (which I have a strong feeling they will i.e. Vekta gets invaded.)

I am sorta sad no there are no rpgs launching besides DC universe.

Not one single reversal, or mention of DRM, or check-ins, forced cameras, or used game killing from Sony.

Those are enough reasons for me. Since I mainly play 1st party first and foremost - the games are simply icing on the cake.

Meh for BF4. But most of all meh for current gen games. I'm ready to get the system day 1 because this generation is long overdue. Xbox 360 has maxed out for about 4 years and PS3 has been maxed for almost two years.
Omegasyde  +   698d ago
I agree - its long overdue. My last ps3 purchase will be GTA5. I will probably pick up beyond two souls when the the next gen drought happens during MAY-Sept 2014.

Don't forget Infamous SS ,The order 1886 looks cool too >< i can't wait

Well, I don't think the PS4 will get a price drop anytime soon, so if you can afford it at release and want it for something down the road, then I say go nuts now. The article makes a fair point though. Launch line-ups are pretty much never all that overwhelming. DriveClub will keep me entertained though.

more harddrive space
driveclub and resogun free

Watchdogs at best quality
F2P games blacklight and planetside 2

Infamous is enough reason down the line

This is the most entertaining innovated launch lineup I ever witnessed in console launch history. Not only does the PS4 launch with a few solid exclusives and some really good multiplats. Its going to launch with some really good free to play PC based games. Planetside 2, Blacklight Retro, Warframe, DCUO just to name a few. There will be so many games to play during the PS4's launch.

Maybe for them
But there is for me

Can we stop with these articles please. They're just ice skating uphill.
MizTv  +   698d ago
It just to ease all the people who will miss out on launch day
Imalwaysright  +   698d ago
Does any of them have MGS5 at launch? No? Then you guys can beta test the hardware for me.
Scatpants  +   698d ago
Enough for me I'm getting both, but I'm paying for the extra warranty on the Xbox1 just in case.
_FantasmA_  +   698d ago
I can think of 4 reasons, and Greatness is all of them.
Fengato  +   698d ago
Even if the upgrades are modest; I can't wait. This current gen has simply gone on far too long - can't wait to finally get some new hardware.
4logpc  +   698d ago
I feel you there. Even if the next Gen version of creed and watch dogs look a bit better, having that new controller and sharp visuals will make it feel so shiny and new.
_FantasmA_  +   698d ago
I think the gap between PS4 and PS4 is pretty big a compared to last generation. But its not about the launch games, and the later games will blow your mind even more if you think the launch games look good now, just you wait and see. Look at Hitman Blood Money. That game used to look good back in 06, and then look at Absolution. What a difference the years passed has made. I am excited for how good Killzone 5 is going to look in 2016.

Too late got both,killer instinct killzone and bf4.
Destrania  +   698d ago
There's more than enough reasons for me to get it right away.
Belking  +   698d ago
Not enough reasons to get both at launch that's why im going with xbox-one for the first year. It has the games and features that suits my needs.
Hicken  +   698d ago
Literally no one asked if there were any reasons to get both. And with you being a Microsoft fanboy, literally no one expects you to ever get a PS4, anyway.

As for myself, there are plenty of reasons for me to get Sony's next console, Killzone chief among them. It'll take a while longer for the XB1, but I assume there will be some serious reasons sooner or later. For that, though, it'll have to outweigh my reasons to NOT get one.

Which isn't impossible.
Belking  +   698d ago
wow... hypocrisy
KYU2130  +   698d ago
well their may not be a good reason, but i sold one of my PS3s so i need a new blu-ray player for my bedroom.. Good enough reason for me to get a PS4 for my game room
XboxFun  +   698d ago
Deadrising 3
Killer Instinct
Project Spark
Fantasy Football

Not to mention Watchdogs, BF4, DA:I and other great games I will be playing for the Xbox One.

I am super pumped for this coming holiday!
Omegasyde  +   698d ago
Fantasy Football is a playable Xbone 1 game? You mean madden or Fifa right?
XboxFun  +   697d ago
No, there's a feature app for the X1 that will allow you to play in a Fantasy Football League with your X1 friends.
Tooly  +   698d ago
This Guy^ lol
brew  +   698d ago
Multiplayer games will be the biggest push early on. Killzone , Battlefield , Planetside , etc.
