I'm actually considering just having an Xbox One this November, and taking a pass on the PS4 till February. The delays to Watch Dogs and DriveClub are a very big part of this decision. Basically, I'm not that hyped to play Knack, and Killzone isn't normally my cup 'o tea, so to speak. So, what else does the PS4 have going for it this November ?
Don't get it twisted, I'm not anti-PS4 in the slightest. In fact, I'd say that Infamous Second Son is my most wanted game, period. Unfortunately, it's not coming to February (assuming it's not delayed), so I don't really feel the need to rush out and get a PS4. Now, back when DriveClub was coming to PS+, I had a bit more of an incentive, cause I thought it would be cool to play the Plus version for free, and try some of the other PS4 games as well. But with both DriveClub and Watch Dogs delayed, there just isn't very much compelling about the PS4 this November.
Having said all that, it's not like I'm super hyped on the Xbox One. I'm hoping that Dead Rising 3 will be a strong game, and I'm hoping that Ryse may be somewhat entertaining, but it's not like the XB1 is overflowing with strong launch games either. It's just I'm a helluva lot more interested in DR3 and Ryse than I am Killzone and Knack. Also, I'm not normally a Forza guy, but with no DriveClub, Forza could potentially be interesting. (especially with the rumble triggers and stuff).
The deciding factor for whether or not I get a PS4 this November is going to be if some of the key 3rd party games perform better on PS4 than XB1. NBA 2K14 is particularly important. If NBA 2K14 gets a 9 on PS4, but ends up with a 7 on XB1, then I'll be getting a PS4. Same thing with Madden. I remember when the PS3 first launched, the Xbox 360 versions of Madden and NBA 2K played much, much better on Xbox 360 than PS3. The developers would tell you that both games were basically identical, but anybody that actually played those games would immediately notice the difference between the two. I'm going to have to wait for all the reviews to hit to see if there is a similar situation with the PS4 and XB1.
If ultimately Madden and NBA 2K14 are identical on both systems, then I don't really have a pressing need to have a PS4 this November.
