- save money with PSN+ discounts and free games
- the most powerful and developer friendly console will bring quality+quantity+variety AAA+indy games
- MMO games
- better social experience with game streaming, watch friends, comment on their play or takeover for them and help them out, friends activity integrated into every game widget on the OS
- 3rd party games better on the PS4
- media apps not behind a paywall
- simple fast experience(like join a MP game straight from the OS in 8 seconds)
- Sony is the console operator with largest number of 1st party studios, with many award wining developers, meaning a consistent and steady flow of high quality and variety exclusives.
- many exclusive AAA 3rd party games from Japan like Yakuza Ishin, Guilty Gear, Deep Down, Dynasty Warriors, SCE have a new 3rd party production team that will get the games localized.
- Improved controller, previews declare DS4 the beast
- neat compact design with no huge power brick make it a pleasure to look at and easy to carry to a friends house
- extended convenience with remote play
- KillzoneSF is the the most beautiful looking FPS with dynamic lighting, particle effects and moving foliage. also 1080p/60fps MP, with bots and costume rule warzones and everything unlocked from the start.
- if you want it for the kids or you are an old school fan Knack is the best game for you.

You guys are a GAME COMPANY. That's your job.

Keep your preorder and stop posting page-click flamebait.

As time goes on I do wonder if IGN is even apart of the game industry or do they live in their own fantasy land.

To top it all off they complain (on their podcasts) about their community being a breading ground for hate and yet they post articles like this, which do nothing more than add to the fire. IGN need to sort out their own editorial staff before sorting out their community.

i dont need to convince anyone.. if he doesn't want to buy it he just shouldn't buy it.
i am aware of the advantages i will be getting from PS4, that's all that counts for me right now.
N4Flamers  +   460d ago
Thanks abzdine

My thoughts exactly. There are plenty of people who want a ps4 and would love to have a pre order slot available.
MWong  +   460d ago
This vid to me just screams "please Sony & M$ fans fight it out for me and tell me why I should get your console." I mean come on you have a ton of insider knowledge but, I need the gamers to pick for me.

I agree if you want it buy it. If you're on the fence then don't buy it, that's my philosophy. I am on the fence about the XBone, so I won't be buying it right now.
AlexanderNevermind  +   460d ago
Easy decision for me.

- PS has the best exclusives.
- Better hardware (allegedly up to 50% faster)
- should have best looking/running multiplats (unless devs gimp the system for MS' sake)
- 3rd Party Devs seem to like the PS4 more
- remote play
- MMO's
- Free games from PS+

The question should be why would anyone not want to change to the PS4 as it seems to be the better system.

- unless you've been Xbox for the past 7 yrs and don't want to leave the community (very understandable).

The subject of better release titles is very subjective. Hardware performance although not quite finalized is much more concrete. Way to many stories of Devs saying the Sony console is by far the better of the two.

What is more concerning is the topic of having the Sony multiplats being gimped down because of the X1's shortcomings. Hell its not Sony's fault MS decided to go all in on the half gaming/half tv system. I do hope devs choose to push each console to it limits and not let 1 hold the other back.

Since they did this with the xbox one preorder video, in order to keep things even they have to do one about keeping ps4.

First, his Name is Ryan McCaffery. And he's not new, he's also a gamer, he's been doing game journalism i believe officially since 2002. Sure he's new to IGN, but not the game industry, he's been around a while

dantesparda  +   460d ago
"-3rd party games better on the PS4 "

Im not sure about that. I think the 3rd parties are going to gimp the PS4 version for console parity with X1
ZBlacktt  +   460d ago
gamer7804, Well given by the way he expresses himself. He came across as really not wanting a PS4 no matter what. He even stated because of reliability in launch consoles. Then retracted that comment quickly saying Sony doesn't have that problem. The problem was with the console manufacture he does pick. He then goes on to state how he's never liked Killzone and never finished a game. So again this guy really drew a line between a real gaming journalist and a fan of one console over the other. It's his job to want both, like both, have both and maybe IGN should be hiring based on those that love and play it all. Be like having a Ref for a sports game like one team more then the other.

"To top it all off they complain (on their podcasts) about their community being a breading ground for hate and yet they post articles like this, which do nothing more than add to the fire."

it's not ign's fault that so many gamers are so immature that anything appearing negative about their console of choice or positive about their console's competitor sends them into a fanboy frenzy.

there's nothing wrong with discussing whether you pre-ordered a console, or whether you might cancel your pre-order. but since fanboys run rampant online, any genuine discussion gets turned into mindless "my dad can beat up your dad" nonsense.
Sci0n  +   460d ago
Exactly, what type of BS question is that and the guy on the left is a idiot. I know me and everyone else is keeping there's. I am so hyped and excited about my PS4 preorder I marvel at my receipt a few times a week and have the consoles release date marked on my calender.
FamilyGuy  +   460d ago
Wow, very nice.

For me it's a very easy choice, things like PS+ and the F2P games just solidify my decision.
Sony has a LOT more exclusives, whether they be full, PS or PS and PC there are a tons of games coming to the PS4.

I definitely wouldn't want to miss out.

opinska  +   459d ago
the games are not f2p on either the X1 or Ps4... you pay 50$ (or 60$?) to play them
FamilyGuy  +   459d ago
This is incorrect, you don't need PS+ ($50 a year btw) to play the F2P games on the PS4, you can even play their online multiplayer without having to pay for PS+.

They are completely free to play. In fact the PS3 currently has a number of free to play games out already:

Uncharted 3s multiplayer
Dead or Alive
DC Universe online
Dust 514
Free Realms
and a few others

Never doubted it.

After 18 years of gaming on Playstation, i don't even care what the competition is doing, i just really want to enjoy my games on Ps4 because i trust my choice that i did in 1996.
Sony has been delivering the best and reliable hardware and fascinating games for a long time and it won't be different this time around and the biggest advantage of being with Playstation is that you don't have to worry about weaker or stronger issues, Sony does that for you and always provide you with strongest and state of the art hardware.

Ragthorn  +   460d ago
I am excited for PS4, I don't have it preordered, but I will get it in the launch window. I already have a lot of games on PC to play lol, but I am excited to go back into Killzone, I remember first playing it and it was so good back in 'O4 with my PS2 especially spilt-screen multiplayer with my brother and friends. I have been keeping up to date with it cause I love the heavy and damaging feel I get from the guns in Killzone. As I game mostly on PC, I still play on the Xbox and PS or there exclusives. Not fair to choose one side or the other. As I had equal fun in Halo and Killzone back in the day. In terms of value though, I got to give it to the PS4. Its overwhelming bang for your buck is so great! I also don't think that Killzone is the most beautiful looking FPS, nor does it play at 60 fps consistently on MP w/ 1080p. I saw some slowdowns, but you guys have to keep in mind it is utilizing an APU so that is inevitable with 1080p and 60fps and it has very impressive visuals for a launch next-gen console title. I am anticipating my return to the Killzone Universe, see you guys there.

IGN are full of idiots period. To me they are the worst gaming site on the net.
edonus  +   460d ago

Are the 3 worst things in gaming right now. They are a cancer on the industry.

IGN is the worst because they use to be a creditable gaming journalism site so they got the respect of the industry. So now that they are broken corrupt and full of crap their influence has basically set the tone for the ignorance in the gaming community.

Youtube is not really specifically gaming but it is a pace that lets ignorant people do and spread ignorant stuff. Its like a prison riot on youtube. And there is no warden.

N4g is just a place were all the ignorance of the internet comes together. Its like the melting pot for all that is foul and disgusting. Its not necessarily N4G even though the mods really dont do anything to curve or cure the ignorance and in many ways support it. The real thing is that all of the crap culminates here. For instance EDGE is disgusting GameTrailers as well. On their own they are bad enough but both of them end up on N4g. (and I am not just saying this bcuz N4g keeps banning me over dumb stuff).

I didn't. I changed to the Xbox one after ms did a 180. It's funny how the Internet was a blaze about the original policies then when they changed it to what the gamers asked for, they were wrong about that too. I don't buy into the Internet crap, I had a blast with my 360 and I anticipate some great times with the one. Unless they pull some red rod crap all over again then ill be die hard Sony. I can't wait to pick up a ps4 as well. The exclusives on the ps3 looked great and played well. I'm looking forward to the same on the ps4. Also some vr gaming....fingers crossed!
HammadTheBeast  +   460d ago
Enjoy your preferred console, but N4G isn't the most supportive Xbox site out there.
ShutUpDonny  +   460d ago
There are no wrong choices. Both consoles will give you enough play time for your money. Enjoy!
monkey602  +   460d ago
Fair enough for giving credit where it is due on either side of the fence. For me it was always going to be ps4 first then maybe the xbone later. Ive always had a 360 as a second console for the exclusives i wont get elsewhere. Loved halo and gears and had to have bioshock and mass effect back when they werent multiplatform. For me this time though i have no intentions as of yet to ever support the xbox one. Like you said they have reversed the policies but i still feel they spit in my face and dont deserve my support until they really prove otherwise. I want to make sure that their first party exclusives keep coming and dont fade after a year or two and hope they dont try feed the drm back in gradually.
BX81  +   460d ago
@monkey, I can see how they left a bad taste for some. Saying things like one needed the kinect to function. If they came out and said you really don't need it , but with what were trying to do its a plus. Then I could see. I also disagreed with always online. That's a huge deal when ur overseas or don't have net.
dantesparda  +   460d ago
MS is going to have to prove themselves to me especially at that price, i bought the 360 when it first came out and ever since 2008 its just been collecting dust. So they have alot of convincing to do here.

And p.s. also 4 RROD left a bad impression with me

I cancelled my PS4 pre-order back in July after some consideration. None of my digital games library carries over from PS3 to PS4, and I just can't bring myself to pay to play online.

The fact that you had to pay to play online with the 360 was one of the reasons I didn't purchase an Xbox 360 until last year. I was lucky in that I only paid $100.00 for my 360, which was the perfect price point. Ultimately I ended up selling my 360 just a few months ago once my LIVE subscription ran out.

I'm sticking with Steam and possibly Origin on my PC for this next generation, since most games will release on PC anyway. I will also continue to use my PS3 and PSP, and I plan on buying a PS Vita around Christmas time this year. I am super excited about PS Vita TV also, which I will pick up at launch if its only going to cost $99.00 + taxes.

Not sure why this is even a consideration. Are we keeping the pre order to the dominate console of Next gen? Hmmmm. Exclusive content on Watch Dogs, AC4 and Destiny. Plus the exclusives with infamous SS in Feb... free AAA games on PS Plus.... Best controller ever in the DS4. I just don't know....
The Meerkat  +   460d ago
Why not.

They will sell so well that the price won't change for years so you won't save anything by waiting.
You know you'll get one eventually so it might as well be now.

Xbone however will struggle after the initial buzz is over and a price drop will happen at some point in 2014. That is when you should pick one up for Halo 5.
azshorty2003  +   460d ago
If you're not sure, then cancel your order so someone who REALLY wants it can have it.

Supermax  +   460d ago
Agrees with azshorty and bubbles for that,let people get one that wants one.from what I'm hearing Sony is going to make sure there is enough stock in stores in the United States so whoever wants a ps4 can get one regardless of preorder or not threw out the holiday season.this is great for gamers.
MichaelLito79  +   460d ago
Xbox One day one and PS4 in a couple of years. Gamers should choose the system that caters to you. Right now the Xbox One has the games I want but in due time I am sure the PS4 will have some incredible games.

The problem is there are to many guys who bandwagon jump on this site. Constantly Knocking Xbox One down when clearly they have an excellent list of games. Regardless all gamers should choose the system that cater to you.

Might as well cancel it. You don't really want it bad enough. There are many that would love a PS4 and missed out on the pre-order.
D-riders  +   460d ago
call me a fanboy, but MS hasn't presented anything that makes me want a xbox one. Titanfall is on pc so it doesn't make sense to buy a 500 machine for that game. I loved killer instinct but the concept didn't become genre changing. So it will fade away probably instantly again, Id rather get smash bros. I think people who are buying a xbox are just loyalist. I think I saw that you can play MMo's on the go on ps4. That's some science fiction shit.
HugoDrax  +   460d ago
"Titanfall is on pc so it doesn't make sense to buy a 500 machine for that game."

Once again another comment about how I can get TITANFALL on PC. Sure you can, and you're still supporting Microsoft lol. Either way the game is being played on a machine being powered by a Microsoft operating system.
MRMagoo123  +   460d ago
How is that relevant at all tho ? My pc has windows 7 but i didnt pay for it so no money went to MS. So how would ppl playing titanfall be supporting MS?
quenomamen  +   460d ago
Lol I'd like to ask him if he ever had any journalistic integrity, but seeing how it's IGN I'm sure he can buy both systems with that check he gets every once in a while from his uncles Billy.G & Stevie.B. IGN and credibility don't exactly go together.

Not trying spoil anything for anybody here but their review of COD Ghosts has been done for about two months now, ( 9.5 ) they're just waiting for the game to come out.
