Well, as the title suggests, I've finally made my way into the new ways. I luckily managed to get hold of a PS4 without a pre-order, purely from the fact that a friend of a friend was selling a brand-new, sealed unit for the same price as it costs in the shop. Picked up a couple of games, namely Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Battlefield 4.
As far as the PS4 itself is concerned, I'm surprised at how seamless everything is, and it just feels like a much more polished experience compared to the PS3. The menu is beautiful, being able to do everything on the fly is an absolute blast, and Sony have made good on their promises; this is a console for gamers.
The only problem I currently have is the fact that the launch lineup has been pretty tepid at best. It was great to play Battlefield 4 at 60 frames, and Assassin's Creed IV in full HD native, but these games are out on last generation systems too. We are in dire need of some new IPs, which is what 2014 is hopefully bringing to the table.. (Unless they get randomly delayed just before launch; Watch_Dogs, I'm looking at you here). I'm planning on picking up Killzone: Shadow Fall and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition at the end of the month. I'm also nowhere near finishing the vast game that is AC IV, so there's still that to do.
So there's an update from me in the New Year. Let's hope this year is as brilliant for us gamers as it's looking to be!
