The Pros and Cons of the PS4

Every system released is never perfect not even PC is perfect. PS4 is awesome and there's no doubt about it but there's some flaws that come with it and here they are! (PS4)

Really those are the cons dosent really look like cons to me. At least not to most people. Kinda looks like a nitpick.

Yeah most of the cons came off as whiney and the worst of them just came off as sort of ignorant to the way the game industry works.

"Not even the PC is perfect"! Lol lost me there.

PC is obviously not perfect..... It has its own downsides too.

Everything does.

Agreed. To them, they obviously think that it's the equivalent of saying 'Not even a McClaren sportscar is perfect'. But a PC is only impressive from a point of view of its technical refinement. In games library it does have some that the consoles don't get but the consoles have some hugely high profile, respected, games that never appear on PC like those by Naughty Dog. Consoles have a character, a brand, differences in controller, motion control. If people don't appreciate why others might prefer consoles, I don't think that it's gaming that they're necessarily in to. It's domination- and relatively characterless domination at that.

Biggest con is no killer exclusives. Sony seems to be able to sell ice to eskimos though.

Ryse having a 60 metacritic is a killer app? lol

How about dead rising 3's mediocre 78? Or what about forza's 82? None of the game are over an 85 meta, they're average. So is the ps4's games. Oh yea, I forgot about killer instinct's 74 metacritic lmao

edit: Wait, there's crimson dragon's 55 metacritic, and then locoycle's 48 meta

The Bone's is crappy. PS4's was fair to good.

Second Son will be huge, as will Uncharted once it arrives.

Look to the past for anwsers to the future. Ps3 destroyed xbox in the games department. This gen will be no different. Mark my words, last of us will win this years vga and uncharted 4 is prolly gonna win the next one. Deal with it.

"for all intents and purposes resign yourself to paying $4 to $10 a month to join Playstation Plus"

$50/year does not equal your calculation. Besides, if you think of it as if you were going to buy such and such game anyway, then put that money in PS Plus and psychologically you will know that you paid for your digital game already but get to maintain all the benefits of Plus. This is why Plus is better than xbox by far. And c'mon, 4 free games a month.

This is probably not a problem for any significant number of people, but could we please get an all-region Blu-ray in the systems at this point?

Yes. They need this.

Pros- Good Video games
Cons- Bad Video games

Good and Bad games define video game consoles, each console has their fair share of good and bad games.
A video game console will always be remembered for its video games, not its features overall.

PS4's only real con is the lack of games. That and pretty much everything else will be solved in time. What really matters now is that the hardware and online service provides a good base for new games and expansion of services. PS4 does that to perfection with powerful hardware and sleek console design. Xbox One is in the same situation yet has weaker hardware and a higher price. Wii U is weaker to the point that it won't get the big PS4/XBO multiplats, yet isn't much cheaper.

The black beast has no cons
keabrown79  +   242d ago
To me the biggest cons were the crappy earbud and lack of 5 Ghz Wifi... the rest is awesome!
newflesh  +   242d ago
For me the main con is inability to play my video files(avi, mp4, etc) as of now. It really baffles me that they didn't include this functionality at launch when PS3 had it for years. Hopefully they'll add it, better sooner than later
