for me the system is just too barebones even the OS is lacking content I can't change themes or even the background color,crappy web browser,lackluster apps,viewing people you met is a pain I tried to search for a user name to add them system doesn't save them properly for viewing later ,no DLNA support,trophy system is still so slow to sync,I get alot of errors that shut down the game

(stilll no games but I wont penalize them for them because its only been 3 months.)

I tend to agree but from a somewhat different perspective.

Ok let us get it out of the bag, the PS4 does not have anywhere near enough external input options.

It still lacks in games a Whole heck of alot (this I can forgive, it has only been out for 3 months give or take).

I have experienced slowdowns in games which I find utterly disgraceful. Not that they are there, but how frequent.

People like to paint the PS4 like a high end piece of hardware which yields as much power as the highest end f Pc's It does not have nothing on a high end PC, and more comparible to a mid/high end Laptop (which in its own right, is way lower then a decent desktop).

In the end what makes or breaks the PS4 is the service we are provided and the exclusives (and ofcourse it is nice to have when watching blu-rays)

The PS4 OS seems like Windows 98 barebones at times but still it seems faster than Xbox One OS current build... I know MS will fix it and go beyond PS4 barebones equipment.

Agreed. I was expecting the menu and interface to be much better than it is, there's almost nothing there at all.

Thank god I didn't play AC IV on lesser systems, as it (along with Resogun) is PS4s only saving graces right now. I've played some of Outlast and Don't Starve and didn't enjoy either one much at all.

Some stuff still needs to be ironed out.

That said, I'll take bare bones over the advertisement clusterfuck I was seeing on my 360 when I booted it up for the first time in years a few days ago.

Why forgive the lack of games? People who spend four or five hundred dollars on launch day should be rewarded with something other then a year's wait, a lack luster tech demo, and some multiplats they could play on their old system.

Gaming's biggest problem currently is that early adapters always get the shaft. They get the least content, pay the most, deal with the most bugs, and to top it off they are often mocked by devs and publishers when they voice any kind of criticism. Working games, working multiplayer, and a decent library should be a prerequisite for paying full price. Currently however, no early adopter can really expect to get any of that. Software, hardware, doesn't matter. It is going to be buggy, incomplete, and lacking content.

Why is this acceptable?

It has potential, but it isn't there yet. If not for the huge backlash against the XB1 before release, this would be a very different story.

Ok sux for you but to ME Ps4 have been nothing but amazing. Just finished Outlast, that is my third game i complete om Ps4 and no crash or so whatever in any game.

I dont see a big point in change background when you wont see anything of it anyway because of all appz/windows in the way...

Have Tomb Raider to beat now before Thief get released now this month, and next month Infamous coming. Oh and next month is many other games for my other platforms so i see no problems with games. I will be busy for long time...

Yea both systems are pretty terrible right now. Honestly i dont know why they didnt wait another year to get their stuff straight.

So far 90% of my gaming is on last gen consoles, seems stupid to rush buggy unfinished consoles to market with no games.

For $400, it's pretty sweet hardware wise. Also the engineering that went with the blower style cpu fan and heat-shield, while keeping a good temp is pretty amazing. At least it's not some huge box with a giant heatsink inside, goes to show how idiotic the Microsoft engineers could be.

The PS4 is an incredibly sleek piece of kit. The raked front and back make it seem like a solid slab of technology hewn from a larger piece. The mix of matt and gloss areas succeeds in looking classier than an either an all-matt or all-gloss finish would have. As plastic boxes go, this is among the best looking I've seen.

Playing Killzone Shadow Fall it was immediately apparent that this was a next-gen game. It easily matches the best the PC has to offer: there was complex geometry, with trees blowing softly in the wind; high-resolution textures, which made rocks and the forest floor look photo realistic; volumetric lighting with rays of sunshine filtered by the canopy above. The shooter itself is solid stuff, with far more tactical variation and space to manoeuvre than Call of Duty and its ilk. The plot starts strongly and though it's no classic, this is a technically-capable game you'll want to see through to the end.

It’s the best looking PlayStation console by some distance and runs so much faster than its predecessor. The DualShock 4 controller is lovely to hold, the UI wipes the floor with the PS3’s XMB interface, the Remote play hook-up with the PS Vita is a killer feature and crucially, games look gorgeous.

The PS4 is a powerful, great looking console. There's no doubt that it's the more powerful of the two consoles and that Sony has produced a leaner, more gamer orientated console compared to the Xbox One.

How did that not make sense? He was clearly taking a swing at the PS4's inability to render games with high graphical fidelity at 1080p and at 60fps.

Sad thing is he's right.

The only reason it's getting praise is because it's more powerful than the Xbox One and cheaper. From what I've heard they're both considerably worse than their predecessors in a number of ways (mainly multimedia features) which is hilarious.

Other than being a bit more powerful than the X1 there isn't anything exciting at all about the PS4 for me.

I don't even use my PS4 right now. I'm back on PS3 until inFAMOUS releases. I knew there would be a game drought so that doesn't bother. PS4 REALLY needs a YouTube app though. I don't a shit about a full-featured browser because I have PC, tablet and phone for the web.

I would like custom themes and that will probably come, just not as soon as we would like. I am thankful they finally patched in support for Pulse Elites.

I can agree with you to an extent. Sony comprised the gaming side and to an extent the media side of the PS4 last year to talk about their vision for the PS4 and talk about things related to the PS4 that don't really matter anymore.. It was a great idea to do this, but at the same time they forgot to create interesting and fun exclusive launch games(Knack and Killzone are not that fun for most people and don't impress me that much) and talk about future PS4 games that people can enjoy.It will take at least a year or two for a lot of the more impressive games to release for both the PS4 and the xbox one The multiplats on the console are great, but I don't buy multiplats usually and I can play almost all of the multiplats released on the PS4 on my 360 if I wanted to.Some of the media/social features are unfinished for both consoles, but I can forgive them for that. I'm also avoiding the xbox one for now until the UI,party chat and etc are fixed and the price of that console decreases.I also think that the PS4 is a really safe console, but that's not bad usually,but for some people they may not want to buy a safe product.

It's been this way since the Genesis and SNES, and probably farther back. The One and PS4 are no different. What i think will make or break the One will be the games. As far as the graphics go, as long as they are better than anything the 360 could do, I would be happy. Don't own either console, but I'm more inclined to get the One than PS4 because of Ryse and Halo. Besides, FF XV and KH3 will be on the One too.:)

PS4's only strongpoint is that it doesn't have MS name behind it after this past year of drama.

I'm still playing the PS3, no reason to jump to next gen just yet (though Killer Instinct does look interesting).

PS4 is easily overrated on these boards. So much cow circle jerking and praise for mediocre things. Sure there are definitely some highlights recently, but cows are taking it too far.
