Today I had the opportunity to demo the PS4 at the local Sony store in my area. If I had to use two words to describe my experience with the PS4 I would say, NOT IMPRESSED. With all of the talk of the power of the PS4, I was very disappointed by the games Sony picked to show on the PS4 kiosk. The games did the console no justice, which was a bit surprising, considering all of the talk regarding the PS4s power.
The three games I had the opportunity to demo were, FIFA 2014, Knack and Octodad. Knack was the first game I played, game play seemed fairly simple and visually the game looked like a current gen game. The same held true for FIFA in terms of visuals. Playing Octodad was the last straw for me, and I was quick to turn and the controller over to the kid in line.
For all of the talk of the power of the PS4, they should have at the very least included Kill Zone. Something that would have really captivated those who are trying out the system for the first time.
The best thing about my hands on demo, was the look and feel of the PS4 controller. The controller is a nice improvement over the PS3 and just felt more comfortable in my hands. I suppose that increased size had something to do with that.
Sony has done a lot of things right this console gen, this Kiosk is not one of them.
