GamerBolt: "There is now little debate that the PS4 is the best console available, boasting immersive gameplay, high definition graphics, next generation social media capabilities and revolutionary second-screen features."
i have to agree ps4 is the fastest selling console of all time proud to be a ps4 owner since ps1 ps2 ps3 days
Too early to tell, but with the incredible worldwide success in it's first year alone giving every developer a reason to jump on-board and develop PS4 games, it definitely has the potential to be the greatest console yet
I enjoyed the Xbox 360 more so, especially with the bugs and PSN downtime, really frustrating as a 360 user
I'll let you know my answer after I play uncharted 4 & God of war 4. @gaming247 bro! You have a Sony console? Get out! Lmfao
@Gaming247all day The Red Ring Of Death was really frustrating for me.
As much as I love my ps4 as of now it doesnt hold a candle against the N64 or snes or ps1 or ps2, hell not even the ps3. Salewise however...its pameling prety much everything except Nintendo handhelds.
@Gaming247allday I to was a Xbox 360 user and 3 times my account was hacked a stolen and Microsoft was unwilling to help in any way other than a new gamer tag but the money I spent in the Xbox store for digital games and DLC and the money I had in my account all gone and they could care less because they already had my money and thought I'd rebuy the other stuff. I found that a little frustrating . The Xbox Microsoft crowd always points out the troubles with the Sony Network and it has its issues no doubt but they never every wanna talk about the millions of Xbox users who's accounts were hacked and stolen and in my opinion that was a much bigger issue than the Sony Network being down for a month or whatever it was. ...but that's just my opinion.
Games dictate what is the greatest console of all time, not sales so as of yet it isn't but it has the potential to be.
Yeah agree it's far too early can't judge a console as the best ever when none of its major games have released and it's not even been out a year, well just but yeah PS2 is possibly the top console built in DVD and all that, but then I grew up with NES/SNES mega drive (genesis) there have been some fantastic console over the year and Sony have created a beast it's certainly looking that way but give it another year or 2 for the big hitters to start arriving and some more cool features like share play to arrive, great start tho ;)
No the ps4 will not be the greatest console ever. For me it's the original Nin or the NiN 64. So much fun on both
This Gamingbolt website is sure a low life click bait website without no credibility. Don't feed these trolls.
I agree that it's way too early to tell since hardware sales are meaningless when it comes to a console being considered "great". It's all about the games, and there hasn't been a single game released on PS4 that has forced me to go down and purchase the console, and to be fair... the same can be said for Xbone as well. The greatest consoles in the last 10-15 years have clearly been the PS2 and 360
Naw, Wii is the fastest selling, then PS2. PS4 is doing phenominal, but don't lose yourself in the fanboy wars. Xbox One is tracking ahead of 360 and PS2's sales in a year's time. Both of them are doing fantastic...just happens that PS4 is doing twice as fantastic.
But that's a big difference in one year, nearly double the amount sold, we all know what happened when this happened to Sony with PS3 against 360's fantastic start, ps4 will dominate this gen the xbox one is the next PS3 shame for microsoft tho that they won't be in the same position as Sony with PS3 being the most technical console out of the 2 and getting done by all the xbox 360 ports at least Sony had a techy console that could eventually make better looking games but it took them how many years to catch up 5/6 it's been 9 years since PS3/360 launched and it's only been about 2/3 for them to be on par it took Sony a long time to catch 360 thing is they had a better console this time the better (technically superior console) is the ps4 and xbox one is not how are they gonna turn that around to make it better than ps4, don't think they can with the system they have but we shall see.
I believe to early to call. Let's see what the future holds and how well those games do before calling it the greatest of all time. Note Just purchased a PS4 to go along with my Xbox One so now I can experience the best of both worlds, just like last generation. Primarily I will be an Xbox player, but there is no denying that there will be some solid exclusives coming to PS4. I only ask of one things from Sony please bring out Resistance. Love that game last generation.
I enjoy all 3 consoles so far, but it's far too soon to claim any such thing, on top of there not being enough huge games out to support it as well for any of the 3 consoles.
@Abizzle Its weird most of my Xbox One friends are enjoying there exclusives Halo MCC, titanfall and Sunset Overdrive along with multiplats like Call of Duty and Assassins creed where as on PS4 most of my friends are enjoying multiplats as well as games like Killzone and MLB. I think its fair to say that both systems have more then enough huge games to keep us gamers busy.
A year's worth of Tier 2 exclusives can't compare to entire console generations. PS4 / XBO / and Wii U (2 years) don't have enough time, games, and content under their belt to be considered for such a title. Most powerful console, yes. Most multi-use console, yes. First Tablet / Console hybrid, yes. Greatest console of all time, No. It takes years of content to earn that title.
I love my ps4 but imo the best console ever is between the sega genesis and the snes.
As much as I love and believe in Playstation (I've owned all of them), and even Xbox (<3 them Halos) I'd have to give greatest console of all time to the N64. Because it's not a numbers game - it's a games game.
Exactly. Best console of all time? That title is kept for the NES... ....but a valiant effort nonetheless.
NES is my least favorite console of all time unless we include some of the off brand crazy stuff from the 70s like Odyssey
You forgot the S in front of NES.
SNES, then the first playstation for me.
"NES is my least favorite console" I'm sorry, but you are not a gamer if you think that
The greatest of all time atthis early in the Game ... No. Could it be of course just look at there history starting from first playstation upwords.
na i still say it's the snes but I do love my ps4.
No console is the "greatest of all time" with only being out for a year. The gaming library is not big enough yet, way too many games have yet to be released, and many more we havn't even seen or yet to be announced.
Also, time is not coming to an end, meaning that there could be more consoles coming in given time.
And I thought my ejaculating was premature...
Way too early to tell, lets wait few years.
It's only been a year, way too soon to call any current gen console the greatest.
Ask that question in a few more years.
If it can build the varied and great library of the great systems like the SNES or the PS2 than it has the potential to be. Sales don't make a great console, a great library makes a great console.
Of Course Yes, The PS4 Is a Supercomputer
really... like really. *facepalm*
Bookmark this. By the end of the generation I think it will be. The way Sony has talked about pushing the PS4...to me the PS3 was the best Sony console so far. Remember the last 2 years of the PS3 life cycle? It was amazing. I think starting next year the PS4 will top the best years of the PS3.
Nope PS2 is. Next to N64, PS1 and Dreamcast.
A bit too early to tell. PS1, PS2, and SNES still have the best libraries, in my opinion.
No, PS2 is.
Agreed. 6th gen was the best time to be a gamer, before all this online bullshit poisoned the hobby. Now gaming is all about endless DLC, 12 year-olds cursing at you, and Day 1 patches. Hurrah. <edited to add> To this day, I still pop in my PS2 games to play on my Phat asS 3.
It's a great console. Don't flamebait this article. If only i played killzone and infamous, I would say it IS the greatest. I'm about to get infamous since i just bought GTA. I wish I played online and now i will probably rent it for the PS3 to play the exclusive content. It bs that I can't transfer my save data without having played online. Who can I confront about this? noooo one. but I'll Chive On and play with I what I have. damn it! R* should have foreseen that not everyone plays online :( seriously...
Snes, would have to be the best in my book.
I think the PS4 is a good console, but greatest of all time is a bit silly. It's way too early and none of the releases thus far has really pushed the boundaries or re-invited anything.
That title is held by the PS2
If they can deliver some great unique experiences with Project Morpheus, and have library rivalling the PS2, I don't see why not.
What games does it have that make it the greatest of all time? That's right it doesn't have any.
Like others have said, it's far too early to tell, but it's on its way, at least from a sales standpoint. What remains to be seen is whether or not the library will come around. Arguably, it'll have to surpass the PS2 in that arena to take the top spot. And that's a tall order.
Lol best console ever? Not even close. It's selling good, but it's not the best console ever. In my opinion it's the Dreamcast. But people's opinions will differ of course
Of course not. This is a question that has to be asked at the end of this generation.
But only until the PS5 come's out
I doubt Sony will be around then if anything Microsoft will buy playstation brand.
how can one ask such a question when there's barely any games play on it in year one? greatness is being based on sales figures now. . ^_^
I know! I have no idea why so many"gamers" are so quick to crown a console! These consoles are great but if that question has go be answered so soon then the answer is no...
No , not even close The greatest console of all time will always be the SNES.
Ps2 is unquestionably the greatest console made. Snes/ps1 a toss up at two.I would put 360 at three although the last few years were horrible.
The NES is my personal greatest console of all time, but the PS4 is potentially the greatest PS to date. It's simple, beautiful, powerful, and effective. The games library is the most important factor of a console, and as of now that is pretty lacking at the exclusive level. The jRPG genre is the main reason why I have a preference for PS over the competition, so we'll see how the genre fans out this generation.
I have to agree with theFro,!!! How can anyone ask that with just one year n a few new IPs n remaster games,.. MS x1 selling strong now also, what if this time next year Xbox one out sells the ps4... It needs a good 10 yrs before you can even think of asking that!!!! Funny that someone would even write bout that this early in the life of anything console or not!!!!
Such a hideous article...
Sure its selling well but how can a system be the best when its main games out now are PS3/360 games while its exclusives aren't meeting up to the hype? PS1, PS2 or SNES are the best systems.
It was unfortunately short lived but damn the Dreamcast gave us some amazing games. I think it's my favorite console ever. Right next to the SNES. Might just be nostalgia getting the best of me though.
For me the golden age of consoles was the 90's. Three of the greatest consoles in a decade PS1, Snes and the N64. Maybe I'm just being nostalgic.
This author sure does love the PS4.
Even greatest console of this gen would be debatable. Of all time? There is no way to determine that after one year. Let's see how it's doing in 5 years and what the game library looks like then, shall we? Rarely do we think of the first year of a console's life when looking back and determining its quality.
It is the best system, technically, but it has very few games. I know it is only a year in but at this point I expect 2015 to be spectacular. Otherwise, I will be highly concerned.
