PS4 is being sold in pure hype.
Its just internet is biased on ps4, i mean whats the release date of the order? driveclub? there isnt, but its ok because its sony.
No release date for smash bros or bayonetta 2, x, nintendo is doomed.
No release date for sunset overdrive, halo 5, microsoft has alredy lost this gen.

I can understand the sony hype tough, i mean ps3 closed last gen strong, but still ps4 is being sold on pure hype, when all it have gotten so far are mediocre games (except for infamous ss and some third party games.)

Just curious what game websites do you look at because most I glance at have just as much PS4 hating as the other to consoles.

GAF is probably the most relevant gaming forum and they have been beating Sony over WWS recent firings and what not.

This is a Nintendo fan site so its not hard to see why.
I like Nintendo as well but its not hard to see why someone would buy a PS4 over a Wii U.

Do you like sports games? Not on the Wii U
You like 3rd party games? Not many on the Wii U
You like AAA games? Not on the Wii U.
Do you like to party chat with friends while playing online? Can't do it on the Wii U.

I honestly think ppl are trolling. Yes, the PS4 has a lot of hype around it and that's the reason its selling well. That's not a bad thing.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Really though this discussion is pointless, all the knowledge about the ps4 is out there, so there's nothing anyone could say to change some of these ignorant views. Sony established itself last gen with high quality exclusives (and the most first party games), great third party support, a vastly improved online service, and then launched the most powerful console at a fairly cheap price.

Most powerful console, all console multiplats, great first party publisher, and an online program that constantly gives incentives to users? Yeah no idea, people must love parallelograms

I'm okay with people not seeing this though, chances are I don't want you on PSN anyways lol

If anything, Nintendo could learn a thing or two from Sony"s handling of the PS3 post 2010 and the PS4.

This is like the 5th time I've seen you make this statement, and you have received more than a dozen responses already with reason why.

Are you not reading the replies or are you just feigning ignorance to make some kind of 'statement'?

I don't know why people are asking about Ps4's success. I called it during E3, so you should have seen it coming. It was pretty obvious to me what was gonna happen.

I have been discussing those points with people. It seems no one knows why the PS4 is doing so well, it just is. It isn't do to price, that would be Wii U. It isn't 3rd Party, those are on last-gen also. Exclusives? Maybe but Sony hasn't released any of there beggest franchises. Technology? PC is always leading in tech as you don't have to wait for a generation and there are products on the market that can be purchased for about the same as a PS4 that plays everything a PS4 can (if it is multiplatform). a little of everything? It is had to believe 6 mill people bought a PS4 for a little of each of these ideas.

Except we do know why it's doing so well. You just choose to ignore the arguments.

It isn't do to price, that would be Wii U.

Just because the WIi U is cheaper doesn't mean it's better. The argument is that PS4 offers a much more powerful system for only $100 more.

It isn't 3rd Party, those are on last-gen also.

Gamers can also get enhanced better versions on the PS4.

Exclusives? Maybe but Sony hasn't released any of there beggest franchises.

Same reason why people bought a Wii U at launch. They were promised big games that will come.

Technology? PC is always leading in tech as you don't have to wait for a generation and there are products on the market that can be purchased for about the same as a PS4 that plays everything a PS4 can (if it is multiplatform). a little of everything? It is had to believe 6 mill people bought a PS4 for a little of each of these ideas.

Except the PS4 is pretty impressive for a console. Using the PC here is moot because not every gamer is a PC gamer. Also, PC gaming can get a heck lot more expensive than the PS4 just for parts to optimize their specs. And yes, it's mostly a little bit of everything: indies, big 3rd parties, relatively low price, excellent marketing, hype, functionality and horsepower.

You're right, it is good value. That said this here:

........ will run pretty much every modern game at 1080p with high details above 30fps. Plus it'll support gSync and Valve's in-home streaming tech. So the idea that PC gaming is somehow out of reach is a bit of a stretch. I mean you're probably going to want a PC anyways, what's $200 for a GPU that crushes the PS4?

@skywake Whoa… I don't even want to keep up with that stuff, let alone buy it!

Granted I should make an effort to become more computer hardware literate, but I think I just summarized one part of why consoles appeal to some people.
