PC Gamers: Are any of you genuinely excited for the PS4 or XBOX ONE?

Even though the Playstation 4 and the XBOX ONE are already outclassed by current PC hardware, are there any PC gamers who are excited about them? If so, is your excitement in regard to the technical aspects of the consoles or just in regard to the exclusive games that they'll offer?

Despite the fact that neither console will compare to my PC, I am still excited about them, particularly about the PS4, which I pre-ordered. I'm looking forward to Killzone: SF, inFamous: Second Son, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the first two of which will never come to PC and the third of which will come to PC but only long after being released on console. As for the technical aspects of the machines, I think that even though they're weaker than current PC hardware, they'll still output impressive visuals because they're powerful enough and games will be designed specifically for their architecture.

Whatever has the best games. I already get the best graphics so I' looking for something special from the consoles. Neither has the launch line up that screams "buy me" so I'm going to hold off till more devs get their teeth into the new consoles before I make a purchase.

The only thing Im excited about is the fact that this current gen is going to be phased out finally. They have have held back multiplat games way too long.

As a PC gamer for over a decade who prefers pc gaming over console gaming I am very excited for both consoles when it comes to exclusives and console only multiplats and it's why I have both preordered for day one buys.

PS4 convinced me to toss my PC next gen. It's really that impressive.

To what? A graveyard? PC gaming has been dead for 13 years. Enjoy it I guess.

Dead? Pff. PC Gaming is awesome! The graphics make the immersion experience one hundred times better than on console. I've been playing Crysis 3 all day and it's been incredible. Full 1080P @ 50-60 FPS with all settings cranked up. You can't get that on console, baby.

Train Simulator is baller. Have fun with your sub 60FPS dude bro shooters and indie games.

Only the Xbox One looks interesting so far, but I'm not buying one.

Already got GTA on console. Try again. Also, that is beside the point as that is not what this topic is about.

Should we start PS4 vs. Xbone thread?

 

Fvck it, lets do a Killzone: SF vs Crysis 3 graphics thread.

 

Wait, wait! Lets do a Forza vs. GT vs. Drive club vs. F1 thread.

 

How about "Will PC gamers be getting a next-gen console?"......oh wait, this pretty much is one.

 

BF vs CoD

 

Bioshock Infinite is overrated

 

Ryse graphics thread

 

"This next-gen game will do 60FPS and 720p!"

 

 

 

I give up.

That's exactly what this is about. There's no games on PC worth playing anymore. Why else would anyone want to leave PC gaming after 25 years? Obviously you have bad taste in games if you think anything since 1999 on the PC was worth playing. Barely anything on the console is worth playing either, hence why I spend 100% of my gaming time playing Grand Theft Auto until Metal Gear Solid 5 is out. PC is dead bro, get over it. Steam is making you a console controller so you can play Half-Life 3 on your TV. Get used to it.

PC gaming has been "dead" for 20+ years bro. There's a reason that GTA5 was my first console game in over a year.

So it died before Quake was released? Yeah, you're obviously talking out of your ass. it died just before Valve introduced Steam and ruined two of the greatest multiplayer games in history, Counter-Strike and Team Fortress.

What is with people and thinking that you can't have both a PC and consoles? WTH logic is that? got GTA for my 360.... my pc has plenty of other games 360 will NEVER get, cough*roguelegacy* cough
#27 Posted by whiskeystrike (12068 posts) -

Not sure if I really "qualify" as a PC gamer as I still play consoles and handhelds a lot but yeah, I'm pretty excited about the PS4. Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV, Metal Gear Solid 5 and whatever else Japan throws at the PS4. Not to mention playing with friends on games like The Division.

People continue to talk about hardware and power but it's not showing in the PC games. 1080P/60FPS is nice but that still doesn't take high-end hardware for the multiplats. All of my favorite PC games have been indies or MMO/MOBAs, games that any laptop can play. The hardware talk is irrelevant when there are very few games that push it on PC. It's not just consoles holding back PC hardware, it's PC gamers themselves. The jump to next gen will be nice for a bit but the consoles will be capped relatively quickly and then we'll be back to blaming them for holding back PC games.

#28 Posted by realguitarhero5 (3900 posts) -

I'm getting an Xbox One but not because it's something to be excited about, just because it's the next machine that will play Halo, Forza, and whatever console exclusive I fancy.

ehhh, I was gonna get the better controller for my pc. But then Valve showed their controller and I want to try that instead. As for the consoles themselves, I never buy the launch product, wait for the slim version of it.
#31 Posted by millerlight89 (18338 posts) -
I am, but I may end up upgrading my PC first. I have the PS4 preordered, but these new AMD cards on the horizon look really nice. After looking over the games I want for ps4 off the bat, all can be had on PC except KZ.
#32 Posted by SKaREO (3161 posts) -
How can anyone look at the specs and price of the Xbox and actually consider buying it? After it is reveal Microsoft cooperates with American spies and adds a mandatory camera and always-on microphone system to their new console. The level of stupidity astounds me.

They like the other features? They do not care about specs? They like the launch line up better?

Plain and simple stupidity, mate. It's clear as day that the PS4 is the proper gaming system. Xbox is a joke.
#35 Posted by IgGy621985 (4551 posts) -

Yeah, I'm getting PS4. Mostly because I really do want PS4 (I currently have 360), but also because Microsoft won't sell X1 in Croatia. For now, that is.

Yep. After seeing what the PS3 and Xbox 360 could do, the peak being The Last of Us which I finished not long ago, it's pretty exciting to think of what developers like ND will do with the PS4, and others with the Xbox One. And to think that the PC will keep moving forward on top of that. Exciting times ahead.

#37 Posted by Stinger78 (5826 posts) -
Right now, there aren't enough exclusives to make either one a must-buy. The closest I might come to getting any kind of upgrade may be to replace the video card in my main PC which struggles some with Crysis 3 and Metro 2033 on their highest settings. At the very least a PC upgrade would let me experience those games with smoother framerates, and I'd have an easier time running TitanFall, Call of Duty Ghosts, Watch Dogs and/or Battlefield 4 if I end up buying any of them - which are all coming to PC.
#38 Posted by kipsta77 (897 posts) -

Interested? Ofcoarse! Excited? Nope!

What's there to be excited about? Multiplayer fees? Overpriced games? But then again, I'm really surprised with the PS4 price, I didn't expect it to be that low.

None of the games look that good. I'll probably get a PS4 a few years down the track... if that.

SKaREO - Do you think Sony was inspired by Shaolin Soccer before they made the ad in your sig?

#40 Posted by airshocker (28012 posts) -

I'm looking forward to supporting the PS4. The only platform that actually seems to care about gamers.

#41 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16371 posts) -
Excited, no. Interested enough to buy one, yes. I am buying the PS4, but not at launch. Good chance I will wait til Christmas 2014. Maybe see what kind of Black Friday sales I can catch.

I'm sorry, Mr. Console Fanboy, but I thought that specs didn't matter and it was all about the gameplay and exclusives?

#44 Posted by BluRayHiDef (10837 posts) -

I finished downloading Tomb Raider via Steam about twenty minutes ago (I got three free game keys with my HD 7970), and decided to try it out. I'm very surprised at how good it looks; I honestly did not expect it to be a visual powerhouse, but I was wrong. I'll post some screenies.

#45 Posted by GiantAssPanda (1590 posts) -
Not right now. The software lineup is too weak on both consoles.
#46 Posted by nutcrackr (12240 posts) -

Not really excited for either. Have a ps3 and 360, but don't use either much. PS3 has served me well and UC2 is amazing.

Not a lot of exclusives have drawn my attention. Infamous Second Son and Quantum Break are the only ones I care about. Rest are coming to PC or even the older consoles. Neither are worth getting a console for. If Uncharted 4 came to PS4 and it had an established library of games, I might think about getting it. Remedy might push to get Quantum Break on PC.

Either way, I'm waiting a year or two before considering.

Yeah. I've been playing it lately as well (bought the game from the most recent sale) and Nixxes really did a great job with the PC version.

Click on the images to see them in their full glory (1920 x 1080). I'm playing the game at maximum settings and it runs at 60 FPS on my machine. :cool:
