Are you liking your Next Gen console?

#1 Posted by Behardy24 (4753 posts) -

For those of you that have one, are you liking it so far?

#2 Posted by Ish_basic (4040 posts) -

ask me again in a few months. Maybe we'll have a couple good games by then that you can't play on the older consoles. But for right now, I mainly use my PS4 to watch baseball and my X1 to keep the shelf from getting too dusty. The latter is not even plugged in.

I've had a good time with Battlefield 4. A very good time. Was never really comfortable with running a Battlefield 4 or 3 on my rig, so to have it on Xbone is more comforting. Currently it's been the most "next gen" experience for me and I continue to return to it. The game lineup is solid so far, I wasn't expecting much at launch and I was right to do so as there have been no surprises. In short: EH.

Really enjoying my X1, been playing a lot of Plants Vs Zombies, and my Wii U has been getting some love recently with Mario Kart 8. As for my PS4 though, it's the one that's been left out, last game I played on it was Infamous and I've still not gotten around to even finishing it.

Oh yeah most definitely. I'm loving my Xbox One. Games that I have for it are:

  • Watch Dogs
  • Wolfenstein: The New Order
  • Titanfall
  • Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes
  • Lego Marvel Super Heroes
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Forza 5
  • Peggle 2
  • Strider
  • Killer Instinct

I still want to get Tomb Raider Definitive Edition and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Really looking forward to seeing what Halo 5 and the next Gears of War will look like on this thing.

Not especially, but that is mainly due to its weak library.

XBOX One never even gets turned on. Ps4 gets about 30% of the attention and X360 still dominates with 70% of attention.

My ps4 expected my expectations. A lot of people hate the line up so far but Im loving it. No complaints.

I've yet to play a true "next gen" on it.All i get is ports and terrible indie games with 8bit graphics.

To be honest? So far the Wii U is the console I have the most fun with. The one with most identity and games that stand out.

My PS4 mostly feels like a machine for second hand ports from my PC (and no they do not look better or even close to as good as on the pc). With the only games for the system I have that are exclusives being KZ:SF and ISS KZ is ok but rather run of the mill, Second son is a prime example of tools hyping up anything as long as it is exclusive, as the game is so void and static that it is not even funny (not to mention the framerate chokes). So it is rarely turned on at all

That Said I have hopes that hte PS4 will still have games worth playing comming out, that it is just an outright horrible start.

If you Count the Vita as a console, or system you want to Count, then Ironically the answer is yes, given the more games that feels like they fit on that system, and not forced onto a system just to have something on it, It also have a good deal of games, if you ever wonderes where JRPGs went.

If you Count the 3DS as a console, then see above, what applies to th Vita mostly applies to the 3DS; it has more games, but have a worse contol input. take that for what you may.

Totally neglected my Xbox One. Only bought it because it was like a tradition to buy all consoles at launch. Only two games for it so far (Dead Rising 3 and Lego Marvel Super Heros), and I haven't even opened Lego yet. As for the PS4, that's where all my time went to, but I haven't even bought that many games for it either. (I'm at seven or eight right now).

That's good to hear.

I've had a decent amount of playing time with each of the three consoles, but the only one that really catches my interest enough to want to buy it is the Wii U, oddly enough. Maybe that will change as time goes on, but for now I don't have any plans on getting an Xbox One or a PS4.

I'm very happy with my X1 tons of new games i'm getting this year.

#19 Edited by Metamania (12021 posts) -

I'm happy with my PS4 currently, but I may be going back and getting a PS3 sometime in August so that I can play the games I missed out on for the system. That's where Gamefly comes in! :)

I'm happy with my X1 but I just finished my first PC build and I'm having a blast with that right now. I'd say recently though it would be my 3rd favorite and my Wii U would be second. I'm sure they'll keep fluctuating with whichever games are out. It's all over once Sonic Boom comes out though.

I'm enjoying my ps4 and wii u heavily.

I'm probably gonna see some flak over this, but I like my PS4. Warframe and Infamous easily kept me tided over till Watch Dogs and the Destiny beta. I like the ease of just turning it on and running a game, or going through my old playlists without having to do a lot of menu navigation. I even got my Youtube on it for when i wanna watch ZP or AJ do a game review, or Roosterteeth do a Let's Play. This isn't the best console launch by far, and there are bad games aplenty, but at least with Sony, you've got a lot of options, and aren't being yoked to the will of your Windowsly Masters. :-) I think in maybe 3-4 years, Microsoft might come around again. Sony did it last gen with the PS3, so I think MS can do the same. But for right now, not the future, not this E3, right here and now, I'm satisfied with my PS4, and don't need an Xbox-One to feel whole as a gamer.

I absolutely love my Wii U.

Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario 3D World are all 9+ superb games in my opinion.

New Super Mario Bros. U, The Wonderful 101, Wind Waker HD, and Nintendo Land are all fantastic.

Miiverse is amazing.

I just love it
