Taking A Step Back

GamingLives Editor-in-Chief and self-confessed graphics whore tells of his jump from PC to PS4 and how, for the first time, he's now stepped back to the last-gen and playing PS3 more than anything. Despite muddy textures and lack of antialiasing.

"Even though I was drawn to the PlayStation 4 because of the graphics and the processing power – essentially a mid-range gaming PC in a sleeker shell – it was the world of inFAMOUS that left more of a mark. Days later, the PlayStation 3 was exhumed from its dusty grave where it had lain forgotten almost since the day it arrived in the household, thanks to the arrival of inFAMOUS and inFAMOUS 2. For the first time in my life, I took my familiar seat in front of the TV and used a PlayStation 3. It was an odd experience, as I’d grown used to the heft of the Xbox 360 controller – even during PC gameplay – but I persevered with the position of the sticks, grew accustomed to shape-labelled buttons, and made my way through Empire City in the role of Cole McGrath." (Infamous, inFamous: Second Son, Need For Speed: Rivals, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)
