The Top 5: Reasons why we got a PlayStation 4

Now that the whole staff at Gamer Horizon has a PlayStation 4, they each weigh in as to why they bought the console to begin with. (Final Fantasy XV, Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-, inFamous: Second Son, Kingdom Hearts 3, PS4)

Naming Naughty Dog as number 1 reason sure is funny ...I would rather say "First Party Games" in general. At least that's my reason for going with Playstation again, most of my favourite games of last gen were PS3 exclusives. I can't wait to see what these studios come up with, hopefully we'll get a glimpse in a few weeks at E3.

Naughty Dog have proven themselves. So picking it as a reason i say regardless of number its a great reason.

I just got my ps4 cause xtra vision was selling it. Really don't see why people need to justify buying their ps4 with reasons.

There is NO reason not to get a PS4, just like there is NO reason not to get an XB1 or Wii U if you're a gamer (not to mention playing on PC is awesome too if you can afford a good enough rig). Follow the games, not the brand.

I completely agree about not following the brand but I just don't have the money or time to game on more than one machine, so I have to research my purchase 1st. So that's my reason for not getting all 4 (including Pc)

Zenith... I seriously envy you, I wish I could forget I ever played any naughty dog games last gen, jsut so i could experience them for the first time all over again.

I was in the habit of loanign out my ps3 to my 360 only friends so they could see the exclusives they were missing, I am ASHAMED of whoever your ps3 friend is for not doing the same for you last gen :P Same way I'd hope your xbox one owning friends would loan you their console so you can catch up on yr gears and halos this gen ;)

Unless you've convinced all yr xbox friends to buy a playstation this time, thats what I kinda did just by loaning out my ps3 now and then oevr the last 7 years :P

It's funny that you say that because I have a hardcore Xbox fan as a friend. Often, he would shy away from EVER playing anything Playstation related, even though he was just as hardcore about PS2. But, getting him to see Uncharted (the first one even) had him blown away. He eventually sold his Xbox 360 and invested in PS3 and PS+ and is now firmly in the Playstation camp. That being said, I used to visit him a couple of times a year and have gaming vacations. He'd play all of my stuff and I'd play all of his. It was a good way to experience both consoles while only really being able to afford one.

Iceman06 glad to hear it :) Growing up with games as a child, my brother bought a sega, our neighbours had nintendo, we swapped all the time. There was never a single mention of someones console being more powerful, just a desire to play the games we couldnt get.

I've felt with the ever increasing use of the internet these days and a whole new generation of teens raised on high speed broadband trolling, the practice of swapping consoles with friends had died down. Good to hear theres still some people out there holding the torch :)

I even remember having a ps1, and going to a friends to play golden eye, and if my friend was on holiday, i'd rent an n64 from the local video store (who remembers those? :P) and spend the weekend catching up on missed games.

For me I feel things got really out of hand with the arrival of online multiplayer to home consoles. I dunno why but it seems like it introduced a whole new breed of player in to the ecosystem, a very competitive ignorant bigoted kind of player :P The kind that swarms to N4G daily to dismiss facts and twist truths to their benefit. Of course I understand this thing is a fecking behemoth and theres nothing I can say or do to stop this trending behaviour. I'm just gonna vent where I can, and keep my head low and game :)

I got a ps4 because Sony has always delivered, 3 console generation are proof of that and it hasn't disappoint me not even once with the games, most classic games were on the PsOne and New franchise became classic with the Ps2 .
Yeah you can throw 2-3 things the Price-Hack and whatever else, but Nintendo and Microsof have had more than plenty.
I am really happy with my ps4, you know what i haven't use it as much as i would like to but thats what happens to any new console in its first 8-9 months, Ive been gaming since the days of Atari.

What I'm seeing is one game and games that aren't coming out anytime soon. I will say that controller is quite nice though.
N2NOther  +   171d ago
That's what early adopters do. They buy in on the promise of what's coming.
