Watch Dogs is being delayed and the only thing left is Killzone. Killzone? Well, I guess I should cancel my ambien prescription, I'll sleep like a baby playing this snoozefest.

Getting it because:

  • i want to try the new features that will come with the system
  • i want to get used to the controller
  • i want to play the next gen Call of Duty:Ghosts on it using the new controller
  • i want to try the share button myself
  • I want to play Infamous:Second Son
  • Most of my friends are getting a PS4 at launch and CoD
  • All those who are getting a PS4 also getting CoD Ghosts and BF4 on it so i want to join them

Since im a huge fan of the CoD franchise having only CoD:Ghosts on the system is more than enough to keep me busy till infamous: Second Son :D

1 Month left for the biggest next gen console baby!

I see no reason to. It has nothing interesting.

Will get it somewhere in February or March.

Great qyestion actually. Cows are just buying it on hype alone. They heard 399 and went crazy. They didn't stop to think exactly what they would play on the hype machine. Ps3 is still the better choice this holiday than ps4 and that's sad.

Same, I've been in this mindset since E3. All the games launching I either don't want or can play on my PC

10/10 thread. The PS4 has nothing worth buying it for. Borezone: Framerate fall..........6/10. Hahahaha.

Couldn't that be said of any console? The previous console, will always have the better library.

I'm getting it for Killzone: Shadow Fall, which I'm genuinely interested in because I loved KZ2 (didn't play KZ3) and am amazed by SF's graphics. I'm also getting it merely for the novelty of having one.

#13 Posted by dream431ca (10165 posts) -

Because it looks cool...and to play games.

The only people who are interested in early adoption are of two kinds:

1) They have large amounts of disposable income and like being on the bleeding edge of consumer products.

-or-

2) They are raging brand-whores who need to own the next major iteration of their favourite company's product.

i seen some fools said they getting it for ps4 because it had "extra" content... IDK why people care about that crap, i be it's deleted content that didn't fit in or wasn't up to par

#24 Posted by -RPGamer- (34283 posts) -

I was actually more interested in ACIV and the digital games at launch than I was for Watch_Dogs. Plus this just makes 2014 that much sweeter with Second Son and Watch_Dogs coming.

#25 Posted by AAllxxjjnn (19988 posts) -

Why ever own a console? They're inferior to PC in every way.

The exclusives? The console experience?

#27 Edited by dreamdude (4615 posts) -

I don't get any console at launch any more. Second Son could have changed my mind on that though.

I'll be getting a PS4 in February.

Mmm. I want to, want to get a PS4, but nothing compels me to.

#30 Posted by Michael0134567 (28651 posts) -

I see no reason to get one.

#31 Posted by Giancar (19068 posts) -

If I could get one I would.

Sony consoles are future proof and I am dying for new consoles (for a technical jump) since 2 years or so.

Thread # 347863209123980 where a Lem asks "Why would you buy a PS4 at launch?" As if anyone is sitting on the fence to get an XBone at this point.. #Dealwithit

#33 Posted by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

@mems_1224: Maybe he's getting it for the same reasons you're getting a X1. Does that bother you? U mad?

#34 Posted by NineTailedGoku (1927 posts) -

@percech: You do know that Watch Dogs was also delayed for X1 right?

SO buying product soon as it releases makes you one of those? L~O~L

YOU SIR is an idiot.

#39 Posted by Ovirew (6393 posts) -

Actually had Watchdogs on pre-order because it looked interesting, but cancelled it a week or two ago. Happy I did that now.

Anyway, Watchdogs wasn't a system-seller to me like Knack and inFamous are. And there are a lot of good PSN titles on the way.

#40 Posted by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

For the games.

Watch Dogs isn't a reason to buy a next gen system.. it's just one game and it's on current gen. There are a heap of great games coming, I can wait for Watch Dogs.. In the meantime people will be playing; COD, BF4, Creed, Need for Speed, Fifa, Madden, Killzone 4, Knack, Infamous, Minecraft etc etc.

#43 Edited by kipsta77 (1014 posts) -

Nothing too interesting about either console honestly. Gone are the days when we see massive leaps and innovations.

I'll probably get a PS4 sometime next year, in no rush though.

#44 Edited by casharmy (6833 posts) -

Other than the fact that it is the best upcoming console of the generation with the best collection of developers, most power, and biggest line up....

I want to support the companies that support me. Pretty simple huh?

Sony released 4 AAA quality games in a year where all other systems except for PC have thrown in the cards and left fans nothing but over priced paper weights. My dollars tell Sony "I approve" of their actions and "keep doing what you are doing".

ON ANOTHER NOTE:

Why own an xbox 1...ever

I see why Heil68 posts the way he does now, making out well constructed arguments for lemmings is pointless. It's better to just mock them with one liners and watch them rage and be mad that people don't want the new console from the company they worship

PS4ever Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Yeaaaaaaaaaaaah

Getting it to play a few exclusive games. Crossing my fingers that some of them are actually good. There really isn't anything great coming out until the middle of next year. I'll most likely still be playing my 360 and PS3 more then the PS4 & XB1.

What's really funny is there are gamers on here who don't want either game console. lol!! Even the one you worship is irrelevant to many. Yes, your post is just as pointless as Heil68, even though I respect him a bit more. At least he has played the competition systems.
