Based on everything thus far, I think this review sounds accurate - http://www.polygon.com/a/ps4-review
Im starting to feel pretty much the way the video review explained things. My PS4 is shipping out today from Amazon and I'm still trying to figure out which launch game to pickup for it. There is nothing that really jumps out at me from the lineup.. meaning no "killer app" for the system right now.
Knack seems to be the most original title, but single player games just aren't my thing. Killzone should be the most graphically impressive title, but having played KZ2 & KZ3.. its hard to get that excited for a KZ4. Would definitely want to play it first before buying. BF4 is guaranteed to be popular, graphically impressive and I expect a large amount of AVS'ers to give it a try. So chances are that is the launch title I'm going with. But even then, as a huge COD fan I already know I'm going to be playing Ghosts on Xbox way more than BF4 on Playstation.
All that said, there are still a lot of positives to owning the PS4. The PS3 is hands down the best media streaming/playback device I've owned and once the features are fully enabled the PS4 should continue that reign. I have plenty of friends who are guaranteed to play Madden & NBA2K14 on the PS4.. and stop by my house on the weekends with a 12pack of beer to show off their skills. The Sony exclusive lineup will continue to grow stronger and I look very much forward to GT6 & Hot Shots golf. And with the PSN subscription, Im bound to play lots of games for what comes down to a cheap subscription price of $50 every 12 months. Still less than the $60 price of a full featured game.
So I do love the direction that the PS4 is going in. Its different the XB1 and thats why I'm getting immediately. The PS4 seems to be focused on gaming only, while the XB1 seems be trying to do a little bit of everything.. but who knows if it will do anything absolutely great. If both consoles were exactly the same, there wouldnt be a reason to choose one over the other.Edited by Daekwan - 11/13/13 at 12:17pm
