Can also go all used car salesman too...

Microsoft hardware is a sensible purchase for the adult crowd with children. It offers split screen for them to enjoy cartoons and you to enjoy the game. Cameras will monitor your progress on the couch to be sure the entertainment doesn't exceed a pulse pounding 24 heart beats per minute. Super sensitive microphones are able to hear the naughty conversations you have with your spouse and offer kind words of encouragement when that significant other turns you down. Microsoft hardware will also tell you exactly what you want to hear at any point in the day. It says no at first to elevate the high you receive for when it actually 180's and says yes.

(In deep baritone) PlayStation 4...the Ferrari of consoles. The name means fun!! Slick black and stylish looks with POWER to spare under the hood. This is raw muscle car at its finest. It ain't your dads station wagon!!! Not only do hot chicks dig this console, each console includes hot girls, sold separately.

Seriously, pick the one you think is best for your own reasons. You will be happiest with that choice. It took me a few months of comparing but I'm good now. Gamescom is very quickly coming up so you may have a better idea after.

Well I got on last night (PS3) and got a few games in with some randoms since Nex wasn't online. Had been offline all week and boy was I rusty. Played a few new AK maps that I wasn't familiar with and struggled to get anything going.

I've got all or at least most of you on my Xbox friends list but for those on PS3 please send me a FR or post your PSN name so I can shoot you a FR. My PSN name is Lodolfan16.

Since I use the Tapatalk mobile app 99.9% of the time to view/post on the forums, I don't get to see anyone's signatures including your XBL/PSN names. Sometimes I get confused or am unsure of who's who especially when your XBL/PSN gamertags are not the same as your AVS member names.

haha thanks for some of the advice but I'm looking for a suggestion on a next gen game. I already have ps4 reserved with bf4. And I have an xb1 on reserve too. Truthfully, I really haven't swayed any since first hearing of both systems and seeing who I play bf3 with the most on ps4 with the exception of a few of you guys. So I was going to cancel my pc bf4 reservation and either preorder bf4 on ps3 if it comes out a decent amount of time before the ps4 version comes out. Or just preorder another ps4 game all together (any genre). I was leaving the suggestions open to xb1 too because I will eventually get one, probably sometime next year depending on what titles come out on it.

Oh...game...good question. Not much at launch appeals to me really. The free 2 play on PS4 I think will bring some lot of titles right off. My plans are to clear my Gamefly q like a month before launch and see what they send. Killzone Shadow Fall looks cool. Everything else like Destiny and Titanfall are mid 2014. My current backlog plus BF4 ought to get me through till then.

There isn't anything at launch (other than BF4) that I'd pay full retail for...hence my lack of enthusiasm towards next-gen. But, to me, my console of choice is all about the future. Going forward a few years, I think MS may have one or two exclusives that are must-haves, but Sony has proven to me with the absolute plethora of exclusives for PS3 that they can draw a huge, diverse, and talented crowd. With the mass exodus of companies heading over to the dev-friendly PS4, there isn't a doubt in my mind that Sony will offer at least 10 times the exclusives this upcoming gen...none of which are likely to be yoga games.

Warframe is a free to play game like Planetside2 and looks like fun:
post #15406 of 16243
Yes good games last night, but after my game froze a second time I decided to call it quits.

So it sounds like most everyone is getting a PS4, and then later down the road a Xb1 if the games are must haves. Cool.

Brainbat - I don't know the exact reason why you hate Sony so much, but I think I understand. I always thought they made good quality hardware, but I always avoided them like the plague because their products were expensive, but mostly because of all of their proprietary accessory BS. There were always other choices, at better pricing, without all the BS, so I didn't have to buy them if didn't want to. Other than the PS4, I have not bought a Sony product since the original PS, so don't think all my recent cheerleading is Sony fanboyism - far from it.

A lot of people don't like Sony, but I've never had a single device made by them ever die on me. Ever. Walkmans, PS1/2/3, receivers, DVD and BD players, TVs, cameras, even minidisc players for personal and car use (which were incredibly cool). I don't actively search for their products, but they always seems to fall into my hands somehow. Does any of that make me a fanboy? Nah, it simply means I've been lucky (and picky) so far. Choosing a console is like choosing the lesser of two evils. They all have proprietary ideals...along with iDevices and everybody else nowdays. When MS can decide what they're going to actually do and stick with it for more than 20 minutes, I'll take a hard look at their new console.

Nexus - I like the sales pitch

I have had no 360's die on me, still have my launch one, but I did have 1 PS3 die on me.

Spyder - you mention no games interest you, doesnt mean nothing great is coming though. You seem to love Borderlands, I didnt like the game at all, does that make the game bad? No of course not, just different tastes. #1 game right now is COD, does it make some godly game of course not but the majority of people love it. I will have a backlog of games for the next gen, its been awhile since I had a backlog of games. For me there a plenty of next gen games coming within the next year or so that I am looking really forward to play.

Also in 3-4 years there will be the same amount of good games on both sides. This generation had it and I dont see anything different going to the next gen. To say 10 times more, which I am not taking literally, is a big statement. Both MS and Sony have the dollars to get companies to make great games for their own console.


At the end of everything I am looking forward to about 7-8 exclusives and another handfull of multiplatform games. 2014 will be a busy gaming year.



Spyder one question, I see you playing on 360 and always wondered why you choose certain games on the 360 vs the PS3? Are you using points to buy the games or do you prefer the 360 over the PS3? I dont know what you play on the PS3 but I do see you often on the 360 so I am just assuming you play on the 360 more. Curious mind thats all.

You know my biggest problem with Sony is they rarely do what they promise. PS3 was supposed to be a dual HDMI 1080P 60 FPS beast that was backwards compatible with any game that cured cancer in its spare time. Also, while they do make good hardware their products are expensive because of the Sony name. Finally, I have been F'd in the A by their oppressive DRM enough times to not want to deal with them. I also cant stand the controller, I know people say that is a small quibble but when I look at my BF3 hours and see 500+ there, the thought of spending that much time in an awkward PS controller gives me carpel tunnel eek.gif

I hope you dont think I am imagining Sony as a group of business men in a dark smokey room plotting how to take my money and piss me off. I know MS with their proprietary BS has downsides as well.

In the end MS has battered my Angus less. Oh and I love the X360 controller and the One controller ... I would let it do awful thin.... I like it a lot biggrin.gif
post #15410 of 16243
I hear ya on all that except the controller, considering it has been redesigned (and apparently very well), then that's a non issue. But yeah, Sony didn't play their cards right with the PS3.

The size of the controller doesnt matter to me. Its the location of the thumbsticks, it feels much more comfortable, to me at least, to have it like MS does. The left thumbstick if your primary usage not the dpad. They can beef up the PS4 controller all they want and add a touchpad but it wont fix the sticks location.

No, I meant it literally. Every article I've read over the past year has devs flocking towards Sony and running from MS as though it has the plague. Sure, MS might make a few games on their own that they'll no doubt tout as the greatest experience mankind has ever seen, but 3rd party and particularly indy devs are heading for Sony's calm, nurturing, fee-free greener pastures. It's no secret that MS has treated indy games that aren't their own like bastard stepchildren, and I don't think that's bound to change, despite the fact that they say it will. Of course, they've said a lot lately...and we know how that turned out.

As for playing on the 360, it certainly appears that I play on there a lot, but the truth is that (if you exclude Battlefield and Left 4 Dead) my PS3s have gotten FAR more of my time over the years. 360 games used to be much cheaper and abundant than PS3 games as well, due to the fact that I had a hookup for those. I'd get Xbox games used a month in for $10-$20 often. I also had a Blockbuster pass that was like Gamefly, and my local store carried more Xbox copies than PS3 ones. I often get 12 months of XBL for $20, so that's cheaper as well. And you all know how I get thousands upon thousands of MS points for either nothing or next to nothing. Simply put, my Xbox 360 time was mostly about economics and nothing more.

Conversely, my PS3s have been my sanctuary over the years. I go on Xbox mostly to chat with friends and kill some time. With my PS3s, I go there to get away from everyone and everything; to become so immersed in a game that an entire day can melt away without my even noticing. I have a small stack of Xbox games that I've actually purchased, but our PS3 collection is massive. MS exclusives? I can think of a small handful, but Sony has a list of superb exclusives as long as my arm. As my Xbox Gamerscore grew, the completionist in me wanted to get to 100K by the time next-gen hit. BF3's 1200 hours really put a damper on that goal. I got wrapped up in that, and thus, it looks like I've spent more time on Xbox, but nothing could be further from the truth. I've upgraded PS3s multiple times. On PS3, I don't play for Gamerscore, I play for pure enjoyment, and there's tons of it to go around...even with the supposedly "inferior" controller, which I don't mind at all.

That said, my choice of next-gen console has little to do with my previous experiences this gen. I just don't like being lied to or forced to spend money on what are worthless accessories and features to me.

I'm seriously considering pretending to be a girl for BF4.
