The Verge: Sony PlayStation 4 review

The next generation of console is here, and it’s here to stay. But while Microsoft decided to use its next console generation to lay siege to your living room, Sony’s simply taken its formula to the next level — it’s attempted to build the game console of our dreams. (PS4) 7.7/10

Just wrapping up setting up my ps4. I can't believe I'm looking at it, I felt like the day would never come. Sure I can't play it for a while after I set it up but I can't wait.

Hardware & software should be two separate reviews.

Is it the DS's fault for having 2 Hannah Montana games?

You can't hold the games against Sony as they aren't the makers of a lot of them, just like the XB1 needs to be reviewed apart from it's games as well.

Critics will like the functions of XB1 better vat first, but within 1-2 years, PS4 will have more games and eventually more rpg's and possibly superior exclusives.

Too soon to tell but I would assume both consoles themselves are pretty awesome....It's the software that is lacking

After watching his video, it seems to me that this guy is basing his rating on the software rather than the actual hardware because I didn't really hear much negative comments towards the hardware itself??
The ps4 hardware should be a solid 9/10 at least and the software currently, I can agree with a 7.7/10

Bigpappy  +   320d ago
I don't think you can rate the PS4 just on spec's. PS4 is Hardware and Software. The Games them selves can be reviewed separately, but if the games are also not performing to the user's expectations, that user is going to transfer some of that negative first impression to the PS4.

Once they get a game that knocks there socks off, then may be that impression would change. At the end of the day it is the experiences that dictate how you feel about the console.

Give me a break… Why is Verge rating a console as it was a cellphone or a laptop? They even gave it a score for god sake… They can share their opinion regarding the system but rate it? Pointless.

"Its the software that is lacking." I hear this all over the net and it bothers me what gamers have become. The real statement should be "its the first party software that is lacking." Sony released two true first party, official, game titles knack and killzone. I can see that as being an issue but guys, let's be serious, the content on this system is not lacking. The third party support is very strong and the titles are looking very good. This is coming from a pc gamer and I think the ps4 performs very well. Not only do you have all the third party releases, you have a strong title like resogun that is ridiculously fun. Additionally the free to play titles like the next gen DC universe, warframe, and others. Their is plenty to enjoy but I do see where people can complain that sony did not step to the plate with any first party offerings that were significantly compelling. As for the hardware. I am a bit disappointed as of now. The heavy reliance on the internet makes the system rum slow and getting to fresh pages or tabs for content can become a chore. The system itself is speedy and the twitch and streaming services work as advertise. The camera functions IMO rival that of kinect. Its very intuitive and possess great depth and feature sets. Ps plus is also amother valuable source that offer free games every month and will pay for itself relatively quickly. Overall I would give the system an 8/10 the only negatives is the lag and stuttering in menues. Other than that, the ps4 is a great system. Now, we just need more first party support.

Since when is:

BF4 multiplayer finally being the full 64 player large maps on console

NBA 2K14 taking people by storm, getting the interest of even nonsports fans because it looks that good

Resogun universally praised by the media

3 of the leading f2p titles running looking great

FIFA 14 improved for next gen, presentation looks incredible

AC4 the return of innovation to the franchise

Sound Shapes and Flower two of the biggest PSN hits, (Bear in mind many people are switching from the 360 and never had the chance to play these games, so it's new to them.

How is that a bad launch lineup 8-10 great games that not including whether you like knak or KZ you can add them in, also COD, NFS,
RedSky  +   320d ago
So much fanboyism.

The games aren't there yet and the price is higher than it will be 1-2 years later to catch early adopters and die hard fans.

The UI looks like it could be better and some features like home media haven't yet arrived.

If 64 players on BF4 is a must-have for you, why are you reading a review? You already know you want it.

For the average consumer, rating it AS IS, 7.7/10 is more than fair.

NFS having frame issues is more on EA than sony or ms

I can't wait to see more people sign up for PLus and really dig how great and under rated the service really is

other than that people over expected with launch titles and now are disappointed. Not many launch games will ever be 9.5 out of 10. wait till 2014 for some awesome games

Straight from the article:

"For right now, though, there's little incentive to spend $399 on a PlayStation 4. Not only are there few games worth the price of admission, the vast library of PS3 games is more compelling than anything the PS4 currently offers. If you're desperate for a new console, rest assured that eventually the PS4 will be one; it has plenty of power, a great controller, and a lot of good ideas about how we can play games better and how we can play them together. But for right now, they’re mostly still just ideas."

I agree 100%. Everyone here says MS rushed its system out but I feel like the PS4 is rushed in the sense of software to back it up. The lack of games at launch really makes me scratch my head. Same goes for Xbox, I really am looking forward to DR3 and Ryse looks "good", but non of the games from either console really are driving me to dish out this type of money when games like TLOU and GTAV are out for the 360 and PS3. I am sure both consoles will have amazing games, but I still want to hold off until the libraries for either console offer me something more then an "ok" experience.

If this is a console review, shouldn't it focus on the console itself? That's how I would review it. The launch library something separate in my opinion.

I wouldn't score the PS4 less because of it's launch line-up.
LightofDarkness  +   320d ago
The most important thing about a console is the games it plays. Having a severe lack of those will impact its value greatly, IMO, and thus the reviewer should note that in their review. After all, it's there to inform potential buyers at the end of the day.
scott182  +   320d ago
@Septic

As a great piece of hardware I bet it gets a 10, I agree that this should purely be focused on hardware. It is great priced tech, and honestly if people are looking to play the cool multiplats at first it does the best job of that because of it's strong GPU...

Septic is right. If you're going to review the new console it has to be based on what it does day one and what potential it offers for the future... it's not about games at all... reviewing a new console on the games available at launch is basically just reviewing all launch games in one big lump... and that's pointless (bu no more pointless than reviewing a console on launch day).

"I wouldn't score the PS4 less because of it's launch line-up."

When a console is release imho, the launch titles are just as important factors for gamers either waiting or buying now so yeah, Launch games are important..

As months\years past they become less important because the game library grows and the power of he hardware is harnessed.

Why would you review something that is supposed to give you satisfaction and entertain you "today" on the bases of 3 years down the road?
buynit  +   320d ago
Septic..

So are you buying the console just to stare at it? I think it ahould be reviewd on everything it has to offer day one including games I mean that is why we are buyng the console for right?

We all know its going to be a awesome console down the road heir is no denying that but conaidering sony owns more deva than nin. And ms combined is their really an excuse for the lack of great games at launch?
Boody-Bandit  +   320d ago
I got mine last night and haven't slept yet. I never wait and I never regret not waiting. The PS3 / 360 generation has just gone on too long. That in itself is reason enough to make the switch for me.

The PS4 is hardware is so much faster than the PS3. Everything is just so much more accessible and works so much better with barely any hang ups. It multitask almost like a PC. I played 8 games thus far and the longest I had to wait to enter a game on initial install was a minute. Ghost took the longest. BTW Ghost SP looks great bt its MP, BLAND. BF4 looks great both SP n MP but seems to run even smoother online.

All the games, even GHOST, are a significant leap from the PS3 / 360. I was actually surprised because I was going in cynical. You can notice the differences instantaneously from last gen to this gen. It reminds me of how some of these games look on my PC. Not just that the graphics look better (lighten, textures, color separation, etc) but that the sound is significantly better.

Some have been calling this generation resolution gate. Let me tell you something that is exactly how I described it to a friend that is waiting for his PS4 from Amazon today. He said what best sums up your opinion of the games so far and I replied, "the best way I can describe it is RESOLUTION."

You can tell everything is 1080p, The enemies far off in the distance are so easy to pick up even when they're hiding. The little details stand out like threads and stitching on clothing, leather on gloves, rain and weather effects, dust and debris, sweat or rain rolling down characters while the light reflects off of them, basically all the little things you sometimes over look smack you in the face making you take notice.

The sound? It's so discrete / crystal clear. I'm using my sound system, haven't tried headphones yet, and every little nuisance and miniscule detail is picked up evenly. It's like being blind and having a heightened acute sense of sound to compensate. It's so much easier to pick up enemy chatter and footsteps off in the distance.

So why make the jump? Because most of the heavy hitters that drive this industry for the holiday season are available on the next generation consoles. They look better, sound better, and in most cases play better.

I already played GTA V, Batman, TLOU, on and on for the PS3 and 360 this year. Now I want the 2nd half of 2013's line up like BF4, GHOST, NBA 2K12 (which is a whole new game next gen. The guys look and move like they are real), AC: Black Flag to play with a higher quality experience . Even Injustice : Gods Among Us looks great.

My favorite game so far? Resogun
I have 9 retail games and Resogun is my favorite. How crazy is that?

I'm not trying to sell anyone but I'm sure as hell not sorry I didn't wait.

Now time for a power nap. I look like I was hanging at a frat house for the weekend.

timotim  +   320d ago
First its "all about the games" with lots of you when it comes to PS4. "We just want to play games" is all we see when talking about media playback, TV features, voice controls etc... then when the games are factored in to the rating, you say it shouldn't be about the games? Of course the launch line-up is going to factor...its the only games you can play when you first buy it. Sure future games will come but we cant go off what might be...only what is now.

That's me too. I'll most likely get my PS4 when Uncharted comes out. Still, it's a great system and I enjoyed playing some of the launch games on my cousin's PS4.
lawgone  +   320d ago
@evilbart I'm with you. If you're a fan of a console you're gonna want it as soon as possible. Sure, it doesn't have a ton of good games yet but you can still enjoy the ones it does have while you wait for more. Honestly, it would be stupid for any console to launch with, like 10 must have games or something. You can only play so many at a time.
NeXXXuS  +   320d ago
Don't forget that the PS3 also had a slow start when it came to it's gaming library during launch. Things will pick up and there will be more games over time. You can't just expect a whole library of hundreds of games just during launch. Games take time to make. I'll be saving up for a PS4 until then since I still game on PS3 with my buddies. A Realm Reborn really keeps me occupied lol.

I don't have a powerful PC so my must have game is War Thunder on the PS4. Which should be available just as the console is released in the UK.

The thing is that the PS4 will sell well for a very long time. There will be no need for a price cut. So what do I get for waiting? I might as well get one now.

For me it's just the holidays. With my chick, her family, my family, neices, nephews, mortgage, bills, etc, I could use the money somewhere else.

It seems to me all the game sites seem to concentrate on the AAA games rather than all the downloadable smaller titles that are available on the console.

launch games are slow every launch. It doesn't matter to me much because if I get it now I get to play kz and will still have it when infamous, the witcher, and all the other great games come out next year. Soon gaikai will release too. Its dumb to review it based off launch games because thats what game reviews are for. It should be reviewed on its hardware and capabilities, the ui, and controller. If you want to include games you should include the games coming like infamous, uncharted and all the other sony games that you know will come. I dont think it needs to be a review for day one because no one buys a console to use for one day or month or year.

As long as both companies don't experience release droughts like they have in the past...360 went through a painful few months...I remember my PSP went through months and months without new games, my daughters DS...etc...etc..I never had a PS3 but I seem to recall reading some issues with game droughts...

From the looks of it...March/April/May should be good months...for both PS4 and X1...hopefully Feb. will start to see new releases...as well.

The consensus of some developers is the PS4 is somewhat more powerful than the Xbox One but many USA media outlets are marking the PS4 down because of the software.

However both PS4 and Xbox One have a boatload of launch games and they don't take account that some people prefer the PS4 games. Also I want to see the hardware reviewed.

I don't know why people find it hard to understand. It's all fine and dandy to say you wish there was a huge library of games at launch, but in reality, that's simply not practical.

Companies have to make games - and the aim of companies is to make money. There is no way a company would prefer to make a game for a console with a highly limited install base (1 or so million) versus an already established one (80 million).

It's unfortunate we have to suffer through launch shortages - but it's simply something which will likely never change as long as the current model of consoles continues.

expect Ryse to get the same below average scores as knack

DR3 will be mid 7s

forza is the only game that has a shot of being something really special.

neither company rushed anything, its just that launch games are good not great. Where i think both sony and ms missed out on was 2 games

last of us should have been a launch title for ps4, they could have easily ported it over

GTA5, you mean to tell me neither side could write a check big enough to make sure they will get GTA5 on next gen consoles

here is where we stand sony launch and not that many great exclusives as expected. Now MS's turn and they will be about the same with their exclusives yet people are over expecting again. Its like no one learned anything from PS4's launch

launch titles aren't meant to be the perfect games or even great games

@ Hicken

Give me a break. I can't have negative opinions about something? I love my 360 and my PS3, but I still see flaws in all of them. 360 lacks a blu ray, graphical/hardware power I expected and doesn't offer as many exclusives as PS3. The PS3 has a subpar online experience, lack of games that suit me (of course that's just my personal opinion), and has an outdated UI that never changes.

You see Hicken, when one doesn't have brand loyalty, they can see the positives and NEGATIVES of something. I will be getting both consoles this generation and have always had a Sony console every generation they offered them. Just because I am underwhelmed by the Sony Launch does not make me bias. If you actually read my comments, you'd see I am equally unimpressed with the Xbone1 launch as well and am not in a diehard rush to get either system at this point.

Avernus  +   320d ago
Funny thing about this review is that Software (apps, multi media) and Game collection scored the lowest, which brought the avg score down to a 7.7...

He liked bringing up the PS3's multi media capabilities, yet he forgets that those things took time to be implemented. I'm not even going to speak about the games, because the console just launch. Want a list of games coming up ( http://a.disquscdn.com/uplo... ), give it a gander and then give it a score.

He does go on to say:

"What Sony's done, though, is mark its territory. Stake its claim. Sony's not making big, grand gestures about the future of the living room the way Microsoft is, or attempting to alter the way we watch TV and talk to our families. It just wants us to play games. The PlayStation 4 is absolutely, unequivocally a gaming console for people who want to play video games, and it never pretends to be anything else. And even though the games aren't yet there for Sony — as is really always true with launch titles for consoles — they will be. Sony's earned the benefit of the doubt on that"

Earned the benefit of the doubt yet scored games so low? In my honest opinion, there are games worth playing (cross platform and exclusives) like BF4 for example, or Warframe, or Killzone... but that might just be me.

7.7 isn't a bad score, but I feel the review was judging too much on what's not there YET.

There's a ton of people that have played Ryse and doesn't think it's crap they say it's a great game with amazing graphics

DR3 looks like the most fun of the launch lineups

Forza 5 is beautiful as a racer should be and will score high

Killer Instinct looks like a great technical fighter with crazy particles and weather effects on some levels

I'd play these over a 7 rated shooter and a 5 rated platformer

Everything else is mediocre PC ports or indies

Just to put this in perspective, for the "Game Selection" category for the Verge reviews:

WiiU: 7/10
PS4: 6/10

As with all reviews, these scores are completely arbitrary.

AWESOME REVIEW its exactly how i feel about the console.

Dude... There's a pube on the ps4 @ 0:45. Not cool.
snp  +   320d ago
Lol. I'm not going to look, but... lol.
Cursinguser  +   320d ago
good idea. No one is excited for next-gen pubic hair.

Why should he review anything but what he has in front of him? There is no way of proving how future updates, games, improvements etc. are going to be. I think the review was good. A complete review of the system 6 months down the road will most certainly prove to be different.

Still in the end its a opinion as yours maybe different from what others may think. I think all reviews are that.
piffyd  +   320d ago
honestly, the games are lackluster, the graphics are not even on par with pc games from 4 years ago

until there are a TON of first party exclusives specifically made for the system, I'm going to pass

same with xbox1

plus, let everyone else be the guinea pigs

I did that last gen, bought both systems at launch, the games sucked and the systems failed within two years

better to wait

If your going to review a console based on games then you really need to do it every 6-12 months, because lets face some quarters and years etc are better than others

All the lies the media is spreading about the PS4 is not fair but customers will judge themselves. Expect the media to give almost perfect score to anything xbox one. I bet my girlfriend and house on it.

I'm done with reviews that constantly talk about xbox one. That's not even on the market and it's all you hear in ps4 reviews wtf. Seriously I want a review that doesn't talk about xbox at all just the ps4. Until then they are all bias

0:47 -> A pubic hair on the PS4? How disgraceful. Lol

Why is everyone complaining that this review considers the launch line up as an important aspect of the PS4. After all, the whole point is to inform potential consumers as to whether it's worth dropping $400 plus games, controllers etc. You were the phone ranting about how it's all about the games and now that the games aren't there, you say it doesn't matter. I only ask for a little consistency. It's time to drop the fan boy hypocritical mindset ffs.

I couldn't watch the whole video because the guy wouldn't stop smacking his lips. It's like he was eating peanut butter between each sentence.

PS4 7.7 LMFAO, Meanwhile that crap COD:G gets a 9

gotta love those PAID reviews!

I gonna go out on a limb and say the PS4 needs a higher score!

omg these "journalists" are the biggest jokes in the world, one of them was streaming on twitch and i asked him were he got his "game journalism" degree, and he said he has a degree in theatre but decided to be a games journalists instead. haha these people are bigger scum than cockroaches.

Just enjoy the console!! It amazes how so many people care what others think.
Nivalis  +   320d ago
It supports wireless N, that can transfer at 37.5mb/s... Just how many people do you think have net connections at home that can top that?, what more do you want reviewer?
hfaze  +   320d ago
My only major complaint with the PS4 is the current lack of support for 3D content. My PS3 can stream 3D off of Netflix, and 3D Blu-Rays work great on it. My PS4 cannot do either.

I realize that this is something that can be fixed with a firmware update, but seriously guys? Hopefully this is addressed with a patch quickly. Seems a little lame that my PS3 is a 3D powerhouse and my PS4 isn't.

sounds fair enough to me
just brutally honest. which is what you want from a review
CaulkSlap  +   320d ago
Review hardware and launch lineup separately. Launch lineup is probably a 7/10. Hardware is 10/10.
sagapo  +   319d ago
I can agree with the score given in a way.
But the hardware is there, the games will follow, no question about that.
Can't wait to get my PS4, regardless.
