So after yesterday, I literally turned my PS4 on, scrolled through my library, and turned it off. Never actually did that with a console before, so I was kinda disheartened. It's not that I don't like indies, but nothing compels me to start it that I haven't tried; Road Not Taken looks okay, Transistor, eh, Doki Doki Universe crashes like every system it's on.

I mean, there is Fez and Rogue Legacy but I play those on Vita more often because they feel better there. Not only that, I wanted to play big budget games/ 3D games, but none of those on the system compel me enough as great games, sans TLoU Remastered which I already beat on PS3. I've beat inFamous, Contrast, MGS Ground Zeroes, and Octodad on PS4 but nothing else feels must play, aside from the occasional Gun Game match in CoD.

Not to mention that my PS3 which rests on top of it has a backlog of games that scratch that itch, and many of them too.

Anyone else feeling disappointed with what's on offer so far?

I don't buy systems before good games are released, so I don't have one.

Not really satisfied. Playing Fez now, but I could play that on my Vita too.

7 or 8, I'd say. Would like more but I'm pretty happy with it. Bought one early May and have 4 retail games and a bunch of downloadable ones. I own a Wii U, PC, and 3DS so I have more than enough stuff to play anyway even if one platform's release schedule is slow.

Also, you should be a better consumer.

I'm fine with it. It's a side bitch like the xbox and wiiu. Between the 3 of those side bitches it has the most promising stuff between console exclusives like Metal Gear Solid 5 (though apparently there is a PC version) and FF15, and other exclusives like BloodBorne. WiiU is a Bayonetta 2 machine, and the Xbox One is maybe Halo won't suck this time machine.

It's really treating me well.

I have 10 + games for it with PS+ and it's really just an awesome machine.

So very satisfied, 10/10 would bang.

Play it on Vita. Feels more suited there.

@TheGuardian03 said:

Why have you bought a PS4 then? serious question.

Early adopters should know what it means to buy a consle on launch.

Cheap price. Everything wasn't delayed then too. But yeah, cheap price, going in with the idea that AC IV, inFamous, Wolfenstein, etc were actually great.

They aren't.

I am not happy with it at all. Then again, it's early days, and I seem to have made a habit out of hating every system I buy for a good while before I finally 'get it.'

My hope is that Dragon Age and Assassin's Creed change my mind.

The only system this didn't happen to me with was the Vita, ironically enough.

I'm pretty happy with it. Wasn't really expecting it to blow me away or anything. The best hardware I have at the moment. Best game I have so far is Battlefield 4. Watch_Dogs was pretty good, so was Destiny beta.

Very satisfied. The whole experience from pre order to launch to now has been wonderful. I have more games for it than I can possibly play then add Gamefly on top if it? Oh my, buried in PS4 games.

If you'd asked me a few weeks ago i'd say i never touch it but with the Destiny Beta (and the game in a few weeks) and TLOUR recently it's gotten alot of my time. It'll be slow again till next year again but i knew what i was getting into buying it at launch.

So yeah quite satisfied with hope of further satisfaction in the near future.

This first year is far better then the PS3s. And the PS3 ended up being the best last gen console.

Lack of games is standard for the first year of any console and PS4 actually has a pretty solid amount. It's the lack of power and performance that is disappointing

Where is the irony? The Vita had a respectable launch (better than 3DS's fo show)

I don't have one yet. I'm surprised it's doing so well right now to be honest. It's about as appealing as a brick at the moment.

Completely worthless at this point. I turn it on occasionally to download firmware updates. Bloodborne cannot come soon enough.

To make it even worse I bought it at launch and spent an extra $95 for a 1TB SSHD...so $500 plus $180 in games I did not play much at all...plus an extra $60 controller I didn't need.

Worst purchase I've made since the PS3 in early 2007.

I don't get it, you know that there are a bunch of games besides first party games or exclusives for it right? . I had a great time playing Wolfenstein on a friend's house the other day on PS4. Even though the textures look like crap the game is great.

I mean console exclusives as in not on PC which I'm sure FF15 still is. MGS5 no longer is. Otherwise even my multiplats I play on PC. I'll play the PS4 version of those console only multiplats, because it's the best version of those games.

Things have gone pretty well so far. I bought in early mainly for Killzone and inFAMOUS , franchises I really like.I wanted to get in on the Killzone multiplayer early and didn't want inFAMOUS completely spoiled before I got a chance to play it. Dualshock 4 , better system/graphics/features , and PS+ games like Resogun and Outlast helped to support the main desires. If there's not something compelling me to buy a system for in the first place , I simply just don't buy one yet.

Played some Strider and P.T. for the first time last night. Will try again.

  • Killzone single player (a bit disappointing , Guerrilla can do much better)
  • Killzone multiplayer - 400+ hours , 2000+ challenges , and still going strong.
  • inFAMOUS Second Son - platinum
  • Assassins Creed IV - beat it , and did everything on the map
  • Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes - beat it , and replayed some of it - lots of things to experiment with and experimented with Share Factory.
  • Wolfenstein - beat it , solid game

Beat these (PS+)

  • Resogun - platinum
  • Contrast
  • Outlast
  • Trine 2 Complete Story
  • Stick it to the Man
  • PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate - found all scientists , found all treasures

Played some Mercenary Kings - I have a like / hate relationship hate with the game. I don't think I have the mental fortitude to finish a game like this.

I have a full plate to work with - (feeling a bit overwhelmed)

  • I haven't tried Don't Starve , Fez , or Road not Taken yet. (PS+)
  • I haven't tried some of the F2P games yet. - really want to try War Thunder
  • I haven't played Watch Dogs , Rayman Legends , Transistor , or The Swapper yet.
  • Things like inFAMOUS FL and Destiny are coming soon.

It has its ups and downs. I've been really enjoying it lately since I was playing through TLOUR but now that I'm done with it I probably wont turn it on for a while.

I find it more useful and promising than the xbone, lack of a JP friendly library is troubling however.

That really goes for everyone aside from Nintendo at the moment.

I'm very satisfied indeed without one. Only problem is I can't go on internet forums and complain that the 9 month old console, which I made the conscious decision to buy, does not have enough games yet.

I don't own one yet because I know I would be disappointed. I wasn't interested in owning a PS4 until yesterday. Bloodborne, Rime, some building game idk the name of, and Silent Hills have grabbed my attention. Plus I need a console for MKX since NRS may not be developing the PC version themselves.

The only game I'm kind of interested in on Xbone is Quantum Break, but I'm willing to bet that comes to PC.

I have about 10 games right now...after trading in a few here and there.

I think it has enough games for a new system and the graphics are great....the controller is great.

I give it a 9. Very happy with my purchase.
