Why I want a PS4?

1. It's only $400 (not $500)
2. It has very nice specs that make me excited about games on it; and
3. The exclusive I was most excited about was Infamous: Second Son. I'm also more of a fan of the Uncharted series than any IP that MS currently offers. Also, I'm not sure Final Fantasy XV will be a PS4 exclusive or multi-platform, but it was the ONLY RPG I saw shown and the PS3 had far more RPGs on it through it's lifetime. MS funded a few bad ones when the 360 came out and then looked at the sales data and decided "RPGs don't sell well" instead of saying, "shitty games don't sell well". So, if I want to play JRPGs, the PS4 seems to be the place to be.

Point being: I think the X1 is actually going to be a really cool console and most of us will eventually own BOTH consoles. The PS4 won my purchase by being a good offer - not because MS fucked up.

Not to mention that if / when there is a The Last of Us sequel, it will be a PS4 exclusive.

This is going to be totally out of date. Probaby doesnt even bring up the 180. It's a magazine, after all.

That's the only one that will matter to most people. Let's be honest. Most people don't buy like the crazed hardcore crowd, getting "all" of them in a wild gaming platform Pokemon-like orgy. They want the best deal, and that will (rightly or wrongly) appear to be the cheapest at retail, even if one might argue "included camera...worth lots...this, that, the other thing...evens out the price differential!"

$100 difference. The end.

I have to views about the $100 price difference.

On one side, hell yeah the price is better at $400. It's an easier pill to swallow.

On the other side, we (consumers) buy things $500+ all the time. Phones, Tablets, PC's, etc; and those things usually don't even last as long as a console does, in the sense that there are new versions or upgrades for them every 6 months.

My cell phone was $500, my tablet was $600, my last PC was $1500, and buying cheaper versions of these items usually means less quality, or a subpar version.

Anyways, the price doesn't sway me whatsoever; I buy the product I want.

In before SaintBlitz comes in to tell us all why Edge has it wrong. Don't we get it yet? We should be believe the firefighting tripe the MS PR team wants us to believe instead of quotes from their own executive team and the poor showing at both of their conferences.

My GPU costs more than a PS4. I am buying a second one. It will wipe the floor with both consoles. That being said, I am buying a PS4. Point being, money is not the issue, what the console gives me is.

I think a lot of it will be how the moron retailers sell it. No offense to any of you in retail, but a clear line must be offered to the questioning consumer. It must be laid out that the PS4 is more powerful, costs less and will restrict the end user the least.

I have ZERO confidence this will occur.

Now, I understand Sony bears the burden of getting this info out. I think they should be just fucking ruthless in their delivery, although I'm betting against that.

But people, please, get the word out to your friends, family and neighbors. We must not let government-toy-One to succeed.

I'm in the same boat as shadow to a degree, but ill certainly wait til i see one/play one in person before i commit to buy. and ill most likely buy an xboxone in a few years when theres a slim updated non kinect version thats only 199-299 and my pc will be 7.97 times as powerful by then....

...he says, probably typing on a computer with a microphone and camera built into it while carrying a phone with a microphone and a camera on it that can all be remotely activated without his knowledge.

But yeah, worry about the Xbox One.

Oh, how the tables have turned. It used to be "Why the Xbox 360 will be your next console." Because fuck $600, that's why. Now it's fuck $500.
