    Play Station 4... Feedback/Talkback? [What say you orgers who have/will it...]

    Just curious, (since these are really the only forums I frequent as well as belong to...)

    Anyone gotten it yet? I have a PS3 and honestly really only use it for Netflix, to play God of War, or to watch a BluRay disc... Do I really need a PS4? ...should I wait till later on next year sometime when it's cheaper?

    So again...

    What say you, whom have it? [...or those whom will have it.]

    I mainly bought the PS4 as an impulse purchase. Amazon had some in stock at 12:01 on release day, so I dove in and grabbed one. I'm not a huge gamer, but there are some titles coming up I definitely want to play (like Wolfenstein). I figured if I was going to continue to pay for software I might as well roll with the top-of-the-line graphics also.

    I've never been able to afford a console on release day before, and I have a good job now, so this was basically Christmas to myself. The only system I've ever purchased on release day was the original GameBoy Advance

    Outside of the netflix part, you listed the ONLY reasons I wanted a ps3 - maybe i can buy a friend's for cheap when they upgrade to the 4.

    one friend of mine got a ps4 and it was defective, another friend of his got one and it too was defective. apparently this isn't a wide spread problem but it is happening. he exchanged it but so far we haven't heard any feedback on it.


    UPDATE - so his second system is defective too, just not AS defective as the first.

    another friend bought one and said it works great. so I asked him what games he got - he said no games yet - so I said to him, "so you essentially bought an overblown bluray player" so he says "it streams netflix and gets online too" so i ask "doesn't your ps3 do all those too?" he says "yes" so I said "so you paid $400+ for a ps3? "

    Cool thanks for the feedback... Not really sold on it yet.

    Maybe once the next God of War is released for it, then I might have to have it.

    So what is the actual difference between the PS3 & PS4???

    I heard it had 3D capability???

    I'm not spending $400 for another PS3

    All I heard it that it does NOT play anything except PS4 games....

    Wow Sony is getting worse instead of better by doing this.....

    Considerably faster, more powerful, much more memory, much better video.

    It has a completely different architecture than the PS3, so to make it backwards compatible, they'd need to cram in PS3 hardware or make you play the games in software emulation.

    Yeah, pretty much no interest in buying the PS4, what I've seen so far has not impressed me. Sticking with my PS3.

    The PS3 already has 3D capability. I use it to play my 3D movies and games on it (of course you also need a 3D capable tv which I have). So that is not really a unique or special selling point for the PS4

    Both the PS4 and XBOX One are very underpowered systems, I'm sticking with PC gaming more than ever.

    Like all systems, I won't buy it until there's a game that comes out that I actually want. The last generation had the fewest games ever that I was interested in. I enjoyed all the first-party Wii games and the Arkham games for the PS3, but otherwise I found it really hard to care about games this time around.

    I mostly use my PS3 as a media server now, but the PS4 doesn't even have that capability. So I'm pretty lukewarm to the release.

    Got one on launch day and have yet to open it. I'm still playing GTA and The Last of Us on PS3.
    My post count just got bigger.

    I had enough $$ a few summers ago to splurge on a ps3, I was really wanting one at the time, mainly for the blu-ray and god of war games (and I wanted to try Uncharted) I had the money ready, went to walmart, was looking at the system, and then the games avail, and I bailed. I realized at that point the system had very few games that interested me that I didn't have on my 360 or wii, but those two systems have more games that I want that aren't cross platform. so I get what you mean here. the ps3 SEEMS more catered to 17+ gamers the wii more family games and for me the 360 falls in the middle. just my own take.

    So the ps4 thus far (and including future games I've seen announced) doesn't float my boat. but I'm not a fanboy I am interested in trying it out, I won't be buying the xbox 0ne or the ps4 anytime soon. the last launch system i bought was the dreamcast, which worked great and I loved the launch games.

    By any chance did any of those units come from Amazon?

    No. The PS4 has all the online media services: Netflix, Amazon, Hulu+, etc.

    What it doesn't do is play media through a flashdrive or streaming from your computer.

    So it has no USB ports so you can transfer your music to the hard drive like the PS3 does? To use in games etc.

    Castle Grayskull this month equals no PS4 for me. I have my PS3 and Wii U to tide me over.

    No. It has USB ports. You just can't use the PS4 to watch a movie file that you have on a flashdrive like you could on the PS3.

    I've read that you have to pay for some music service to use your music files in games - currently that sevice is free but it won't stay that way. this is what i have heard, it may not be factual

    nope from Electronics Boutique.


    I'm eager to try out both systems but it feels like it's going to be a while before i get the chance.

    Supposedly they are working on an update to allow CDs and MP3s, but out of the box those aren't options.

    The system is pretty cool so far, but out of the box it is lacking in many features (mostly non-gaming related features) that the PS3 had when it first came out.

    I've been playing NBA 2K14 and like it a lot. I hadn't bought the game in a few years for PS3 because not much changed year-to-year. But the PS4 version definitely shows an improvement with in-game physics, and the graphics are amazing. I'm not a huge gamer, so I'm not sure yet the upgrade is worth $400 to me, but I am impressed so far.

    Hey thanks for the heads up on that Fendi, that article was a good read and really helped lay out what each new gaming system is really about and capable of.... Still not sold on it at this point.
