Remind Me Why I Need a Next-Gen System

GotGame: (Justin) - It’s the end of the generation. After an exceedingly long hardware generation we’re going to get our dirty little gamer hands on a new piece of technology. Fans are swooning over specs they hardly understand and insulting each other over which plastic box they prefer.

Because... you have to keep up with the Jones' to be cool.

Everybody knows that ;)

Also because you NEED to play games designed exactly with the same mentality of three or four years ago (RDR, CoD and Demon's Souls's MP are the template) with better lighting effects.

So revolutionary!

Oh, and because it will be fully compatible with LifeInvader.

Why did this person leave half the PS4 launch tittles off the list. Last I heard there is going to be 33 launch games for PS4, that's about ten more than Xbox One. If your going to research a console launch please do it well and equally.

alphaomega881661d ago

Its 30 games I believe, with at least 12 being indie and at least 12 being cross gen games...which leaves Killzone, Knack, Driveclub, and...thats it really.

Eddie201011660d ago (Edited 1660d ago )

The same cross gens that are in the Xbox One list and smaller digital games were counted for the Xbox one so why shouldn't they be counted for the PS4 plus the PS4 has the free to play MMO's that are exclusive plus many of the indie games are exclusive. Digital games are just as good on the PS4 as they are on the Xbox one.

Some of the digital games for Xbox One were in development for Xbox 360 and were just moved to the Xbox One to flesh out there line up(Kinect Games at that)

PS4 has 3 exclusive first party games at launch, Killzone Shadow Fall, Knack, and Drive Club.

Also has three free exclusive MMO's, DCU, Warframe and War thunder.

Also has many Indie/digital games that are exclusive or timed exclusive like Resogun, Putty Squad, and contrast to name a few.

Injustice Gods Among Us Ultimate may be a timed exclusive or exclusive to PS4

Plus some Third party games will have exclusive to PS4 content Like Assassin's Creed IV and Watchdogs.

Plus a pack in game, The PlayRoom ( needs camera)

Also the free games you get with Playstation Plus.

"Swooning over specs they don't understand" exactly I don't understand the technical stuff but I understand the Xbox one has the games I want to play. Most Sony fans feel the same way about the ps4. Bitching about specs if you don't know what your talking about makes you look like an ass.

I weep for your terrible sense of quality games.

TechMech21661d ago

Dude, it's not cool to argue with the games people like. It's their opinion. I like halo, therefore Xbox one is the choice for me. Of course, playstation has many great first party franchises, but some people just enjoy different games.

I weep for your terrible close-mindedness to other people's opinions.

Because most AAA games will only be made exclusively to next gen technology ..

I'm going to be where the best devs are.. that is why I'm keeping my PS3 at least one more year.. we still have good PS3 GAMES coming.

But most will be coming exclusively to the PS4.

N81661d ago

I agree, I can't get rid of my ps3 yet there are still to many games to play. I unfortunately have no need for my 360 after ps4 comes out.

VforVideogames1661d ago

why the hate? we need both consoles to get the best of gamming.

ssj271661d ago

I meant "exclusively to next gen systems and PC''
I will only get a PS4 next gen and maybe if they last over 5 years to show show the PS5 I may build or get a gaming PC or steam console if I can play 4k games at over 60fps on modern games and it does not cost me over $500 .

But I bet and I hope PS5 comes out by 2019 or before.

Dunban671661d ago

You should buy as many next gen consoles as you can to support the economy

I biught a Wii U for my son- so I have to hang on the "supporting the economy" reason for doing so

If I could do it over again I would have bought a PS3 instead

cedaridge1661d ago

If u don't think you need a next gen console whom am I to tell you why? But I can tell you who do need it? And that is me!!!!
