No, he's still paid PS+.
I am buying my ps4 in early 2014, i am a huge infamous fan but for some reason i may wait till summer 2014 before buying ps4 or xbox one ps3 is still gonna get a lot of support so i don't see the urge to upgrade. Now if sony can release a infamous 2nd son bundle ps4 2 controllers 30 days psn-Plus infamous 2nd son than i will buy one in a heart beat. But if they announce drive club is coming in march or april than i am buying one regardless. Even though its a new IP i think drive club is gonna be amazing
Well this is early 2014 right now. Summer is not.
sony you cant release a console without a proper game coming out on release. Damn those delay's .. :(
There's a fine selection of "proper" games. It's just people on the internet in this era of gaming focus on exclusives exclusives exclusives or bust, so nothing else matters.
Yeah how dare they not rush a game out before it's finished. /s.
I'd like to know what your definition of a "proper" game is.
My definition of a proper game isnt just graphic like killzone shadow fall. Its the story line. Killzone was a short as game. But AC black flag was longer and felt mor alive than killzone. My proper game is AC black flag etc. meaby Watch dogs an open World game. Not run to an objectiv and shoot and repeat. Thats boring. So finally proper game is open World, great story and graphic...
Infamous second sons is tempting me to purchase my PS4 earlier than I want to. Right now, there's nothing worth it at the moment, in my opinion
What drew me into next gen so fast was bf4 64 player co quedt and how beautiful it looks on the ps4. I respect your opinion though but the games will come soon. Driveclub might be here by the end of feb
Anyone else read this article and fail to get the point? I understand that they got some games they wanted from Plus and didn't buy anything, but I ultimately read that as the writer being an idiot. Don't get me wrong, you can have whatever opinion you want, but why buy a PlayStation 4 if you don't want anything from it? You can still purchase the free Plus games to play later and the PlayStation 4 will either go down in cost or will be bundled by the Holiday season (some rumors suggest as early as inFAMOUS SS). So in a lot of ways, I read this article as the writer saying he paid $400 dollars to play Resogun, Contrast, Don't Starve and Outlast. Maybe someone else might think this is money well spent, but I wouldn't say any of them are day 1 MSRP console good.
What else has he got to play? The reason I haven't bought a Ps4 yet is the reason you are saying he's an idiot. Killzone and Knack suck. Why buy them? He got a Ps4 for the games that are coming out on it. To call him an idiot is to call all early adopter idiots. The rest of the games are last gen games.
Killzone is super-fun, what are you talking about?
What's wrong with playing AC4 in glorious 1080P at a rock solid 30FPS? You act like the PS3 version of the game is worth playing over the PS4 version of the game. In my opinion the PS3 version is garbage compared to the PS4 version and the game looks and plays great for a last gen title.
Or maybe(HERE'S A THOUGHT!),maybe Killzone and Knack actually ARE awesome games that these early buyers(such as me) are having fun playing since their opinion in games differ from your sh*tty opinion,"idiot"!
Killzone gets a lot of undeserved hate. I had a great time with it, sure it has its flaws but I enjoyed the story, change of locations and the OWL is an awesome idea.
You played Killzone?
Or are you basing this on reviews you've seen online?
You know, just once, I would love for a new console to come out and everyone listen to people with the opinion "you shouldn't buy a new console right away, wait X amount of months until the games come out." Then, the console will fail before said games come out and the people saying that can see how stupid they were when there isn't a new console to play games on anymore because the financial burden couldn't be at least partially made up by early adopters who have faith in what will come.
I wouldn't have bought a game yet either if it wasn't for my nephew(the only person I know personally that also owns a PS4). He bought COD: Ghosts, which I promised myself before getting the PS4 I wouldn't get because I was done with COD and how they don't care about consumers and don't optimize their repetitive formula for platforms other than Xbox. I knew it'd be annoying trying to get him to join in on games like Blacklight: Retribution or whatever tho, so I went ahead and bought COD reluctantly. Ofcourse it has the same issues it had in past iterations on PS3, it performs badly, doesn't even look up to par with 1st wave of next gen titles, and doesn't even have higher player counts or anything that could explain why it has such performance issues. Whatever though, hopefully the games will start rolling out soon.
Honestly tho, you dont even have to buy a PS4 at moment because there really isnt anything new new on it that warrants the purchase unless you want to play some indies and multiplatform games at 1080p 60fps. Which fanboys love to throw out there! Either way not that its not worth the purchase but you can wait it out. I bought it at launch traded two weeks later because there just wasnt enough to keep me coming back. That being said I have it again and just bought Knack for it. So im gonna give that a try!
So you bought a PS4 knowing fine well about its launch line up, then decided that it wasn't enough to keep you interested and sold it. Then you bought another one to play knack? Either you're really careless with money or you're BSing....
First off STFU im not bs at all. And I wasnt careless with money. I had ps4 preordered and paid off right after e3. I can remember there being two games drive club and watchdogs that I preordered with it and then got canceled. I still ended up getting it with BF4, Ghost, KZ and Nba2k14! I traded it for an Xbox One with games. Then I bought a PS4 again about two weeks ago. And I bought Knack because I hadnt played it yet. So I dont know where you get off assuming what I have or dont have. Or how im careless with $$$. Acting like you know me...
Chill out dude I know I don't know you. I was just going off your comment and the next gen consoles are a lot of money to be swapping around and deciding nah I don't want one and then changing your mind the next week. Which is why you sound careless with money. I didn't mean to offend you dude.
What what dude? You must have something t ok say on the matter!
Traded it two weeks after launch. That would be around November 29th if you're in North America. Bought one again around two weeks ago. That would be around January 1st. Who trades in a PS4 only to buy one again a month later for a game that was already out at launch. It's your money, your life and you do whatever you want with it but I'm still going to go with the the answer everyone has on their lips after reading your post: What.
I just want to know how you fanboys came to the conclusion that I bought a ps4 for Knack. I just said I bought knack this time around. I also have xbox one and do most of my gaming on there. I just wanted to buy another PS4. Because I traded my launch ps4 for Xbox One. So I basically bought two next gen consoles. I dont know what the big fucking deal is. And go ahead and ban me mod. Plenty of other sites to hold me over til its lifted.
So I'm a fanboy because I question your logic? Sure. I'd understand if you waited a year before buying a new PS4 but getting one exactly one month after trading it is just weird. Especially when there hasn't been any new release since then. It's weird to the point it's hard to believe anyone in their right mind would do something like that. You do whatever you want. I'm just getting a good laugh out of it is all. And why would a mod ban you?
I am not surprised and I was actually waiting for complaints like this from the naïve and gullible gaming community! Well done for buying in to the console wars fools! a smart gamer knows not to buy ps4/xbone till end of this year if not next year! Don't ever believe the hype from these blood sucking marketers all they want is your money they don't care about you!
Of course *they* don't care, but *we* should show empathy amongst fellow gamers,,,. no?
sometimes but in this case no!(imo) gamers in denial is the worst when they are trying to defend their purchase!
And what of the people who have nothing to *defend* ..? You must realize there are literally millions of people out here right now who are enjoying what they paid for, and couldn't care less about these articles or critics on the internet? It's a fact that the amount of politics in gaming today is way beyond what it used to be, you basically said as much and have fallen into it yourself. Because it's not just the marketing and publishers talking a good one, it's the actual gaming community that has a bone to pick with itself. And that is the saddest part of it all. People bought new systems. Let them enjoy it. It's hurting nobody, and it's keeping tthe industry alive.
wtf are you on about! the guy is talking about no having any games worth buying! Hence for the reason for my spat! he went out bought a machine that he knew was not going to have many games on it! his fault and now his moaning!
Agreed. I won't be geting a PS4 until late 2014 or early 2015. When the game library has expanded an when the better deals show up. My PC is all i need for the games coming out soon - Reaper of Souls, Wildstar, Watch Dogs etc. Some people think its cause we cant afford it lol. I bought an iPad Air recently which costs more than the PS4 but it gets used daily for all sorts so i wont even compare em. But yes i have more than enough money for a PS4 but i aint gettin it yet. I really wanna play Infamous second son but i cant buy a console for just one game lol.
I can't jump on Board till I get dat INFAMOUS BUNDLE.
My first game was KZ:SF and I thoroughly enjoyed that spent a good 7 weeks on the online section securing my platinum trophy! Had a day off of work yesterday so finally decided to buy AC4 and spent a good 12 hours on that. Wasn't blown away to start with but once you get into the full scale naval battles this game is a sight to behold! The stormy seas, cannons firing left and right, tornados and huge waves, I would recommend this game to anyone!
Ac4 is fantastic , 30 hrs in and i'm only halfway through the story , the naval battles are epic , just think if they were online.
Agreed man! I'm hooked. When you're on the high seas and there are ships everywhere, it feels like an MMO. UBISOFT should look into something like that for sure
I've bought a PS4 and Xbox One and I'm enjoying them both just fine and I'm looking forward to buying quite a few games in February and March without forking out for a console as well.
I'm getting a PS4 when either Uncharted, The Order or FFXV releases. I can wait until then. By that time PS+ will have more content and I'll be able to pick up Watch Dogs among others for cheap.
Well i am enjoying War Thunder. :D
I'm in the same boat. Nothing interesting to me yet.
I bought all the major launch titles - FIFA, NBA, Killzone, BF4, COD .... don't really play them anymore except NBA.
I like the fact im yet to buy my PS4 but have still been able to add the free PS4 games to my download list using the online PSN store. When I get mine should have a nice selection of indie games to play. If I were a betting man id bet Knack will be free at some point within the first year too.
Likewise... I spend my time watching blu-rays and music videos on Vidzone. Still no games on the ps4 worth getting for now.
Id be a little more upset about the relatively weak launch title list, but buying the PS4 finally made me sign up for PS+, which has been awesome. Still can't believe Bioshock Infinite is free right now for PS3
Me neither. I only have PS Plus games.
Contrast had great potential but it was so buggy I had to uninstall it. Nothing like having to restart a level after getting stuck in a glitch. I'll give it another shot when they decide to release a patch to fix this. Resogun is excellent and I haven't gotten into Don't Starve quite yet.
