MWEB GameZone writer, Zaid Kriel, takes a look at why it would be the smart thing to wait before you buy the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One
To be fair I won't be getting an Xbox One or a PS4 yet because I can't afford either ;)
Yes you can't afford either because they are not worth the money they are selling at,well i suppose the ps4 is worth $350 but it's got a bluray player and a fairly big HDD that we don't need and them 2 things are not power related or spec related yet it adds a good $50 to $75 to the console so with a 32 GB HDD and no bluray the ps4 would be $279 or something like that and Sony would still make a profit,basically ps4 is giving you things you don't need 32GB HDD is good enough to download a few games then just get a 2 TB HDD simple plus not everyone wants to even download games,some people just want physical copies so i just think a wiiu strategy would of been better,and everyone has a bluray so why force another one on people just to drive up costs ??? basically wiiu with a 500GB HDD and bluray would be an extra $50 easy so when you add that to wiiu's original price of $350 that would be $400 ??? Sony stop forcing a bluray player and HDD on people when it's just not needed... Basically this is how it is... PS4 should cost $279 without bluray and big HDD,specially when we have Netflix,Amazon instant,LoveFilm,Now TV,ect ect....but with bluray and HDD it's quite fair at $350 but these 2 things are not performance related so don't add to gameplay or power of the console so in my eyes are not needed... WiiU should cost $350 but we know it's $300 due to Nintendo taking a loss,it also has more tech then ps4,Gamepad and edram/edram cache and custom chips are all very expensive alot more than GDDR5 RAM and SRAM and off the shelf chips ?? Nintendo are taking a loss Sony arn't should tell you that Nintendo's console has more expensive tech,GDDR5 RAM is the only expensive thing on ps4 the off the shelf components ie chips are fairl cheap.. Xbox1 should cost $400 as it has lots more tech than both wiiu or ps4 but its mainly for multimedia not gaming but it still should cost more than both in my eyes....
Wth are you retarded
Well hopefully they pay more attention to their manufacturing processes
This consoles will come out with warranties which will most likely be very good, as it was with the current generation consoles. I don't think that waiting a year is going to make a difference. When the Xbox360 and PS3 were launched, it was some time later when the consoles were "upgraded" (exclude Xbox Here except with the HDMI standard feature on all its consoles) over a period of 2-3 years. If you plan on waiting, then wait for 2-3 years, but then anticipate not experiencing the console during that time, whilst others do. I don't think that holding out is beneficial, as I still have the original PS3 which I bought in 2009. It works fine and I was never tempted to buy the Slim or Super Slim, because the hardware was the same. I think the same will be for PS4 and Xbox One. That's my opinion.
Some people kept their old consoles and still use them today.
Nah I think I'll go ahead and keep my PS4 pre-order thank you very much. I'm sick of this gen and all the amazing games Sony's been showing off lately has me beyond hyped. I aint waitin' for sshhhht.
I'm excited for PS4, people complain about the launch lineup and I think it's one of the better line ups IMO. I will be picking up at least 4 games at launch.
At this point I will be stupid and do what ever I want with my money. I definitly buy the console of the constructor that cared and applied what costumers and developpers desired since the beginning. It's my way to say I agree with what they did... So yeah day one fot me too. Oh yeah by the way, I have one year of constructors' warrantie plus three years of stores' warrantie. I think I'm covered.
When it comes to gaming, i defs don't make the smart choice. Must.Have. It.
Another story that is not true at all like he is saying. First off the PS3 did not have a massive issue with the Yellow light. This problem came about 4 years later and 90% of it was in the 60G model. The whole life span of the console was a 10% fail rate. Which is an extremely excellent record given the near 80,000,000 consoles sold. Next, better versions. This is two fold. The first PS3 phats are some what a collectors item nowadays. They were the flagships of the console. They had 4 USB ports, a card reading docking station, you could go online with them, playing PS1 and PS2 games could be done, etc. Here's my first version 80g. http://i29.photobucket.com/... As Sony was losing to much money on the consoles. In came the cost cutting measures in the middle of the 80g production. No longer did it have the card read station, 4 USB's was cut down to 2. Online was killed due to hackers. No more playing older console games. He's my new edition 80g next to first 80g. http://i29.photobucket.com/... http://i29.photobucket.com/... http://i29.photobucket.com/... http://i29.photobucket.com/... As the Phats were phased out which is something Sony has always done. Made a Slim line, yes the consoles ran cooler and yes they were more energy efficient. But the reliability never changed. All this cannot be said for what we all know is the worst fail rate launch console in gaming history with the XBox 360. For the first 3 years the issues got bigger an bigger. They must have changed the motherboard 5 to 6 times in that process. With fail rate going from 23% to 50% in reports. Gamers having 2,3 and 4 consoles go out on them over time and MS losing over one billion in repair cost. We all know the story. So I would say if anything stick with the company that has a proven track record if anything. I mean Sony has the best selling console of all time and the second best selling console of all time. It speaks for itself. From things I've read about the X1 and why it's so much bigger is because of cooling. Sure I'm not the only one to have read that. That to me says yikes really MS? But as a gamer, you most certainly don't want to see that happen ever again to anyone. So buy your new Next Gen and feel good about it.
Wow! Someone actually down-playing the YLoD issue after all this time! I remember what the PS forums were like back then, it was a mess. Fanboys jumping from thread to thread doing damage control, flaming and calling people liars, threads always getting locked. It was both hilarious and pathetic at the same time.
Wow, 2 bubbles am I surprised. http://www.gamespot.com/new... http://www.gamesradar.com/x... http://www.ign.com/articles... http://consumerist.com/2009... http://www.squaretrade.com/...
It's a trick, he wants you to cancel your pre-order so he can get your PS4 on day one! Do the smart thing: get the PS4 NOW!
ehehe. . he wants the precious for himself. tricksy silly filthy hobbit. .
@ZBlacktt Fyi, I've been gaming with PlayStation since the PS1. I spend most of my time in multi-player so I prefer XBL because it's a significantly better online experience than PSN. don't hate on the PlayStation brand because I am a gamer, I play games not platforms. With that said, I have only 2 bubbles because of people like you.
