Cool for those that missed out on them the first time .

i have ps4 pre ordered and i do want a xbox one too, but i don't see the benefits of picking one up at launch. I am talking about both ps4/xbox one, there is not one must have title for either launching. Don';t get me wrong launch tis time around is much much better than any i remember in past 2 decades but still most of the games i want are in 2014

witcher 3
the order 1886
the division
mgs 5(not sure if this is 2014 though)

any suggestions on whether to skip or buy at launch?


i don't think that's gonna be an issue or i hope both sony and ms learned from their own mistakes, but where is the killer must have

You are going to get it why not now?

"but i don't see the benefits of picking one up at launch."

Yeah could be said the same for both Xbox One and PS4. Really, the launch line up for both systems are all about multiplatform games. It's sad. Xbox 360 and PS3 are still kicking strong this year and there's not really any REAL reason for people to upgrade.

Theres definitely no reason to get both at launch. But if you're balling, why not. I am. Getting both, not balling. LOL
nukeitall  +   859d ago
You forgot Quantum Break, Project Sparc and Overdrive.

For launch though, I'm looking at Ryse, CoD, and maybe Watchdog. Very strongly considering Killer Instinct, and Crimson Dragon.

For PS4, if I keep my pre-order, there is only one game, KillZone.

If you don't see a game you want at launch I wouldn't buy Anything. Right now, at launch only xb1 has the games I want (dr3, forza 5), but I don't mind waiting until after the holidays. I'm actually hoping ps4 outsells xb1 by a long shot through the holidays, so they'll reduce the price or come out with a nice bundle in the US.

If you can wait, wait.

I don't know man... maybe nothing much on PS4 at launch, but for the X1 I want to play Forza, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and Killer Instinct. And of course I want to rock a next gen BF and COD.

I can't wait.
BX81  +   859d ago
I would hold off. I pre ordered a ps4 after the MS conference. When they changed the policies I cancelled my ps4 and pre ordered the Xbox one. Get the console you prefer and enjoy. I'm still getting a ps4. The way I see it is the ps4 will drop In price eventually and will have a big catalog when I purchase it.
TechMech2  +   859d ago
Honestly the only must have for Xbox one is halo, and that is the only reason I'm buying an Xbox one. I want a ps4, and if halo 5 is poorly received than I'll probably buy a ps4, but halo is the only true reason I see buying an Xbox one
ABeastNamedTariq  +   859d ago
I feel just about the same way. The launch lineups are great, I think, but the only must-have game I personally want is Killzone. I don't HAVE to have anything else, but I really want some other games. But I'll definitely pick up an Xbox when Halo or a new Gears of War comes out, as long as some of my friends get one (a lot are just getting a PS4).
4Sh0w  +   859d ago
I guess must haves are a matter of opinion, Watch Dogs, DR3, Ryse, and Forza 5 are the only launch games I feel like I must play, Ill get them all including KI eventually but I haven't made up my mind which two to buy at launch. I like shooters so I'll probably cave and get BF4 or COD a few months after launch but honestly neither of them has made me excited for next gen shooters. Good news is that there are some truly amazing games coming further down the line in just the first year alone and it will only get better.

AceBlazer13  +   858d ago
get it now cause if these consoles live up to hype you won't be getting one anytime soon
showtimefolks  +   858d ago

i don't think so, after the early rush by gamers like us i think both systems will need some selling to do. Remember we are not going from SD to HD anymore

i have a ps4 pre ordered which i will keep and than decide a week before if i want to buy it or not, thank you all for your replies, you guys are right must have's are each person's opinion. I am a huge killzone fan so my reason for ps4 will be that but games i want 10 times more will be in 2014

waiting could mean not having to do with any bugs with systems, and better lineups. Also by march-april there could be some bundles
Evilsnuggle  +   858d ago
The PS4 pre orders have been sold out since E3. But there are still xbone one 80 for sale. How much PS4 will out sale xbone more than a million.
Gamer666  +   858d ago
On X1 I'm looking forward to DR3, Forza 5, Lococycle, and Killer Instinct 3 exclusives at launch.

I'm also interested in Ryse, but previews haven't inspired confidence yet.

On PS4 I am currently only interested in KZ:SF and Resogun exclusives at launch.

I'm also interested in Knack, but haven't seen anything mind numbing there yet neither.
Blachek  +   858d ago
Wait a year, get a 2nd edition with some kinks worked out at a better price tag with a larger game collection to tap into.
TechMech2  +   859d ago
I ain't preordering any system. Who knows what hardware failures could await
BigShotSmoov007  +   859d ago
I have a feeling this time around won't be as bad as the last, although I have been wrong before.
Minute Man 721  +   859d ago
I believe both systems are on a 28 nanometer chipset, shouldn't be any heating problems
WeAreLegion  +   859d ago
My GameStop friend told me that earlier. Strange.
Eonjay  +   859d ago
Gamestop is pushing the Xbox Hard. When you walk into my Gamestop they have an Xbox One advert smacking you right in the face. They have a PS4 avert hidden in the corner. I don't blame them though because I know that the Xbox needs to get its sales up for them to keep making money next gen.
FITgamer  +   859d ago
Depends on the store, there are 4 stores within a 10 mile radius of me, all them except the one on base have all the playstation, both 3 and 4, displays in the front of the store. The store on base is definitely pushing Xbox One though. It's Xbox, Wii/Wii U, then PS4 displays in store. As far as window ads go it's all Xbox, with one PS4 poster on the door.
Back-to-Back  +   858d ago
Yea thats a smart idea by gamestop. Push a product that nobody wants.
WeAreLegion  +   858d ago
Not entirely sure why I got the disagrees, but thanks for the replies. Lol.
BigShotSmoov007  +   859d ago
I guess MS were able to finish and ship out some more. Thats good cause the more people online the better.
NegativeCreep427  +   859d ago
What about PS4?

Im seriously considering mitigating the cost of the PS4 by trading in my xbox 360 with the games. Anyone have experience with trading videogames/consoles with Amazon?
BigShotSmoov007  +   859d ago
I think they are still taking preorders for the PS4. They never stopped.
aceitman  +   859d ago
U cant get a pre order for ps4 anywhere
True_Samurai  +   859d ago
Walmart inside the store
aceitman  +   859d ago
no call them they will tell u sold out , but they will say u can preorder a xbox1.
True_Samurai  +   858d ago
Walked in this morning had to make a payment on my x1.they have 32 left out of the 60 they have. And that's just 1 out of 12 Walmarts in Mobile

PS4 pre-orders are still available and for launch day in the right places. However you really need to see confirmation that your pre-ordering for launch day first.

I'm not sure if the situation changed since the announcement of extra stock but my local GAME store had ran out of launch day confirmed PS4's at one point, but that of course didn't stop them from taking preorders.

Online you shouldn't have any trouble tracking one down but going local could be awkward depending on where you live. As for trading, not a clue as I've never tried it myself, I'm more of a collector.

Can you tell me the right places? I have a co worker who didn't listen to me when I told her to pre order, know she's running around trying to find a PS4
limewax  +   859d ago
Well I'm from the UK so I don't know how much help it will be to everyone, but the supermarkets near me are still taking launch day pre-orders. I'd have checked the site of one I saw taking an order just a couple days ago but the site is down right now. Ironically so is who may be worth a look despite the growing popularity.

Also some of the smaller electronics stores here are still taking orders.

EDIT: stock is definitely slimmer now than it was when I last checked. PC World is sold out and so are many of the other sites that were still taking orders just a few weeks ago. I retract my original statement, this may be like trying to track down a PS2 at Xmas all over again.

NEVER trade in to a third party. Just sell your stuff on Craigslist or eBay, you'll get way more value out of your library that way. Then use the cash to preorder where ever.

They have made sure that there is retail consoles to buy on the day in store.Whether there be queues or big rush I not sure how long they will stay in store.
Hufandpuf  +   859d ago
Don't know whether to buy it or wait until public reactions.

This is great, now all the people that didn't want one, will still have a chance to get one.

TechMech2  +   859d ago
Xbox one vs ps4 ain't a very easy choice for me. On the one side, theirs halo, and on the other, everything else. It might seem simple for most people, but I'm probably gonna just wait a year and see then

meatysausage  +   858d ago
It sounds like you should get a ps4 to start, and save up bit by bit and get the xbox one halo 5 bundle when it comes out next year
christocolus  +   858d ago
read your comment .your candid and unbiased statment are highly appreciated on n4g..i wish more gamers here actually sounded as reasonable as you do and wouldnt start fighting each other over individual preferences all the time.people should be happy with which ever console they are going for and should be mature not trying to downplay and insult other peoples opinions and choices...getting an xbx1 at launch though and a ps4 after infamous is released...
Eonjay  +   859d ago
There is a good chance that Xbox will get sales because it is the only thing available. If you absolutely want a console this November, it seems that you have a better chance of getting an Xbox at this point if you haven't preordered yet. Your only other option for getting a launch PS4 is to wait in line Thursday night... but to be on the safe side you probably need to get line sooner lol.

Based on available data and statistics: Xbox One Day One US sales could be as high as 633,000.
Based on available data and statistics: PS4 day one sales could be as high as 940,000.

Where might I find this data?
Eonjay  +   859d ago
I used the reverse tie ratio of COD Ghosts to Xbox One units on 8/24/2013. Its about 1.5 for Xbox One and 2.65 for PS4 if I remember correctly. Estimate the amount of COD preorders at release in 8 weeks (I was very generous and used 360 numbers which are consistently 3x higher than XOne COD preorders) Apply the tie ratio and you get about 633,000 xbox one preorders at launch.

COD is the best reference point because the preorders for PS4 and Xbox One are in a dead heat tie and they COD is the most pre ordered game for both consoles.
HugoDrax  +   859d ago
Sure, you must forget about the marketing prowess of Microsoft. I watched a MLS game last week on ESPN and guess what I saw? The team was wearing an all green jersey that read XBOX ONE on the front in bold white letters lol, along with the logo. Now mind you that was just a major league soccer game on ESPN. Imagine what's going to come from Microsofts partnership with the NFL?

All I'm saying is the places/websites/events that hardcore gamers may not got to, Microsoft will be there marketing XB1. They will sell out of XBOX ONE consoles, rather you as a gamer believe so or not. This so called data you speak of isn't accounting for the types of people who still don't realize a new XBOX console is releasing. Once those Xbox fitness commercials begin to air on tv MS will sell even more consoles.

Furthermore, think about the people who don't pre order anything? Yet come holidays they will purchase anything they can just to have presents available for loved ones. Come Christmas in the states, you won't be able to find a PS4, XB1, or Wii U on shelves anywhere.

All the points you make are completely valid. But you seem to be assuming that Sony will be sitting still. There is no way they will not get the word out about their new system, as well as flaunt the benefits (price, power, games). Thats what makes this head to head so exciting... they are both going to be fighting hard as hell.

I agree, they definitely are going to be fighting hard as hell. I'm not assuming Sony will be sitting still, I know neither party will. It's just an exciting time to be a gamer, and we only have one month to go before we can begin the next gen :-)
MikeNike310  +   859d ago
The controller having the words day one printed on the xboxone actually adds to the allure of it. Already have both preordered.
BLAKHOODe  +   859d ago
I've already pre-ordered and paid for mine somewhere else, but awesome for those really wanting one that have already paid off their PS4.
danny818  +   859d ago
Wait is this for launch day?
Grimhammer00  +   859d ago
You guys are nutz.
Killzone is day 1
Asscreed bf next gen looks stunning. Day 1
Bf4 I also have paid....but thinking canceling for drive club.

That's 3 games im getting day 1 and destiny paid already too.
BLAKHOODe  +   857d ago
I don't understand why anyone would buy Drive Club at launch.. or even for a few months afterwards. You can play it with your PlayStation Plus subscription, which you are going to need anyway if you plan on playing online.

Sure, Drive Club PS+ edition might not be the full game, but it's still a GREAT way to try the game out before committing to pay full price for it. Even if you do like it, the PS+ edition will probably be enough to get your fill of it, in which later when the full version is a lot cheaper you can make the call on rather or not you want more of it.

I mean, I just don't see jumping in on it so quick when there are so many other games out there that you could spend that money on instead.
Trekster_Gamer  +   859d ago
You can always wait. Depends on if you can afford it and how badly you want it.

I am hyped about Ryse and COD ghosts for starters and really want to play them as soon as they are available!
LaidBakLazyHippo  +   859d ago
do u guys think they will open preorders back up for the ps4 at gamestop?
PFFT  +   859d ago
No word yet. That what my friend told me. My bro is also looking for a PS4.
HugoDrax  +   859d ago
If you have $5,000.00 you can gladly have my PS4 GameStop Day One edition. Also comes with an extra controller, KILLZONE, and a pre order for Second Son lol. Just saying, otherwise I'll just keep it and give to my cousin for Christmas.
EastBayPunk  +   858d ago
