Whos excited about the PS4?

Well with a lot of details revealed about the PS4, what do you think? Are you a fan of the "Share" feature? How about no backwards comparability!??

Re: Whos excited about the PS4?

I would really like to see the option for backwards comparability, I would even be willing to pay a little extra for it, I mean I am sitting here with XX amount of PS3 games already, so why shouldn't I be able to play them still, a lot of them wont be dated.

I have no doubt I will be buying both this and xBox. Can't wait to see what E3 brings for both PS4 and Nextbox.

Lol. Does every thread about a console have to turn into a 'PC is better' thread?

Not that I disagree... My PC os my primary gaming point and my PS360s are only occasionally used.

But, if you are going to go down the console route, whether for reasons of price tag, convenience or exclusive titles, why not want the most feature-packed experience possible?

Re: Whos excited about the PS4?

ONLY reason I'd buy a PS4 is if they bring in the compatibility mode to play old Playstation games.

As nice as it looks, it's just the XBox/PC for me. There's no games on it that aren't available to the XBox that I've justified buying one..However, if they make it a reasonable priced gaming console with games I twitch to play I might consider it, doubtful though..

Plat's derp Win8 system isn't included. Over here in the golden fields of working OS's and start menus (Win7 etc) all is well.

Re: Whos excited about the PS4?

Was considering getting a PS3 (the old 360's starting to spout steam and a popup tells me I need a crank to wind it up half way through playing) until I heard about the PS4's incoming status. Undecided on what to do, as a PS3 will become obsolete in the field of new releases, and the PS4 not having backwards compatibility (as of yet) is a kick in the teeth for any other games I want to play... bad enough that latter versions of the PS3 don't like PS2 games (from what I read) :/

Re: Whos excited about the PS4?

I bought an early 60Gb one that does play most PS2 games, at least it plays the ones I want. Mainly Ratchet & Clank and GT3. They still do them in Game for 150 with a years warranty.
As for the PS4 I'm undecided. I've never been what you'd call an early adopter. I tend to wait until the initial excitement dies down and the prices drop a bit.

Re: Whos excited about the PS4?

I will no doubt have one on launch day and will not open the box till when i get home of course, I am not excited yet the only difference i am going to see is probably when i upgrade my pc as i feel that the next gen will only match this in terms of hardware, there is a few game titles i am looking forward to but anything new i am usually like a new puppy wagging its tail sniff sniff lick lick, i hope there is going to be something that will set it above anything at the moment

TBH we've been seeing this for ages. What do you think DLC is for.

They know nobody would stomach that kind of money for a game and they also know that the vast majority of gamers never do more than scratch the surface of any game so they release them in stages so those who want to can get the whole thing and those who give up after level 3 don't pay for 100 levels they'll never see.

IMO we've had it easy for too long. The price of games now is not much different to that of the 1990s but the costs of production have gone through the roof. It used to be the case that a top flight game would take a team of a few dozen to produce and would be sold for 30-40 quid. I remember Microsoft Flight Sim 2 cost 50 quid back in the late '80s. Now they have teams of hundreds and are still selling for the same price. The days of two lads writing a game in their bedroom and making millions out of it are well and truly gone.

Like them or loath them even EA have to make money.

Re: Whos excited about the PS4?

I am certainly grabbing a PS4 as near to release as possible, probably an Xbone first quarter 2014. Lack of backwards compatibility isn't an issue for me as I will still be using my PS3 for TV, catch up and DVR duties.

Wouldn't mind having the option of Planetside 2 in the living room without the nightmare of trying to map all the controls to a 360 pad and still be somewhat effective. ;-)
