PlayStation 4 review: Sony scores a direct hit in latest console war

If the PlayStation 4 is any indication of the quality of the next generation of gaming, then it was worth the wait after all. The box itself is a thing of beauty. Video game consoles are traditionally more utilitarian than they are attractive, but the angular design of the PS4 might actually earn it a visible spot in your entertainment center this time around and it’s a far cry from the bulky monstrosity that was the PS3.

The story is too old to be commented.

Your average N4G reader seeing something Sony positive and/or Microsoft negative on the site.

The randomness is strong

@Timmyp53: You do read the comments on here right? It's almost as bad as the crap on youtube... Endless bashing of Msoft and praise for Sony... Don't get me wrong, I like the PS4 more as a system right now, but people cant even play both of them yet, and people act as if Msoft shot their first born or something.

@HammandTheBeast: God I hope not, I like to think I'm sub-average... abnormal?... Catatonic, that's the word I want.

@Xsilver: Have ruled out Artificial intelligence... Unless VERY intelligent, and TOYING WITH ME!? Hmm, more tests...

Greatness awaits, even Scientologists are converting.

Sony is using all of their top guns in these days of thunder. Console wars are risky business, and mostly mission impossible. Microsoft vs Sony is really a war of the worlds.

Cerny is one of the few good men to bring Sony out of oblivion. When it comes to intelligence, this guy makes it rain man! He will be legend as he has all the right moves.

Sony will keep him on for years to come if they enjoy seeing the color of money.

Nintendo is trying hard but in reality they are the last samurai. Right now the WiiU sales are minority report, but these figures can come back as it always has like a true solid rock of ages.

Hopefully, "Nintedon't" keep their eyes wide shut.

Microsoft policy changes are like knight and day.

(Can you find all the tom cruise movie references?)


that was great man...I laffed.

Omega really Taps into what I was thinking and has a Firm grasp on reality.

Quiet frankly hes a Legend, and Far and Away one off the best contributors here.

Even Outsiders receive his Endless Love and it doesnt look like he'll be Losing It anytime soon.

When he mixes his Cocktails he makes it Rain man.

My fellow Sony gamer...

Don't forget, MS shareholders are doing their own Operation Valkyrie on the Xbox division!

Sony Gamers Lead the way!

Less than .04% failure rate, most powerful console ever made, Sony's main 1st parties about to show their stuff soon, DualShock 4 is incredible, and all at $399.

All they need to do is update the minor blue screen error that morons are desperately trying to spin into something bigger than a connection issue.

Why do people keep saying "fastest console ever" like it's an achievement. There's, like, one other competitor.

MidnytRain1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

They're the newest consoles. If they're NOT the fastest then they're scamming people.

MysticStrummer1699d ago

…and again, no sense was made.

The number of competitors has nothing to do with the level of an achievement, and since tech is always advancing there will always be a higher bar being set, but that doesn't lessen the importance of each milestone.

MidnytRain1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

Actually it does. Saying "they're the fastest ever" when there's only one other competitor is lol-worthy.

Were we expecting something slower?

ELpork1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

This is why you buy a PC, and then join us up here where the ram is 4X as fast, and we get the best hair physics.

MysticStrummer1699d ago

Why do PC gamers think console gamers don't own or have access to PCs?

"buy a PC, and then join us"

Have one, it's very nice, and no thank you.

Hicken1699d ago

I dunno. Why do people keep downplaying it?

MidnytRain1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

Circle jerks are boring. People like me are the reason you still come here. :D

slivery1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

If I can understand your logic at all, which to me doesn't seem very logical. Somehow you think nothing should be claimed as the fastest? Simply because one day there will be something faster? Still really makes no sense as we don't live in the future, we live in the present and presently the PS4 is the fastest console.

I really don't get what point you are trying to make. That was the best conclusion I could think of myself.

Honestly I don't even know why I bothered, having read your other comments just confuses me even more.

MidnytRain1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

"nothing should be claimed as the fastest"

Didn't say that. I think people read too much into my comments, lol.

Shang-Long1699d ago (Edited 1699d ago )

Im going to assume youre an adult and have seen many generations of gaming. To realize that consoles have been around since the 70s so since the 1st console release. Non of them in that past 30.years, have sold faster units in a short amount of time, than the ps4. How is that not something to make note of?

MasterCornholio1699d ago

And that competitor is slower. Which is why the PS4 is the fastest console ever made.
