Men's Journal: 5 Reasons to Buy A PS4

Men's Journal - Sony's PlayStation 4 is the first Sony game console to launch without backwards-compatibility out of the gate. That means your huge collection of PS3 games is useless and you'll have to fork over $400 for the new hardware and another $60 per game. Sony's offsetting things slightly by offering a pair of free quality indie games with the space shooter 'Resogun' and the film noir puzzle adventure 'Contrast.' And next year, Sony's cloud gaming service promises to bring back a library of past PlayStation console titles for instant streaming. But for now, there are some quality experiences that showcase what next gen gaming can deliver on Sony's new console. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Killzone: Shadow Fall, NBA 2K14, Need For Speed: Rivals, PS4, Sony, Warframe)

@ MRMagoo123

I can't believe you left out Media Molecule's next project, which will probably have the deepest tool set for user generated content.

Knack is a pretty decent game. Its not as bad as some people make it out to be. I appreciate it for some ofthe amazing graphics, because it can truly nearly pass as something from Pixar, but thats just my opinion. I do wish that I can play FPS, but unfortunately I get motion sickness. I tried playing for 5 minutes and I was done with it. Im sure though that we will see some quality titles and I cant wait.

1. Larger worlds
2. Upgraded AI (hopefully)
3. Upgraded graphics
4. More room for innovative games
5. Sony 1st party

I'm getting Knack, I watched quite a few streams, including Yoshida's.
It looks very fun, challenging & a step up from current gen graphics of that genre.
