Been at the hospital soi haven't read the whole thread.

My take is that the PS4 is selling on mostly hype and a ton of games that have announcement dates that are vauge as hell. Sonys PR as being for the gamer has become ingrained and has caused them to be pretty impervious too critism despite having a pretty Blah line up compared to Nintendo and Microsoft.

Despite that I do understand why the PS4 is leading in sales, its the best bang for your buck. I'm a big Halo Fanboy but I can grab a Ps4 and Vita for only $100 more than a Xbone.

WAT!

It might become...but right now it has what, like 3 months in the market? Its incredibly soon to make this kinds of statements about any console, even for the one year old wii u

It's all because of their lower price than the Wii U and the fact that their control options are less gimmicky and therefore cheaper. This is why Nintendo shouldn't have chased after this hair-brained idea of off-TV play.

........... what? None of these things are the case? Well damn. All of the armchair analysts were wrong!

@Kevin1991 I thought the PS4 and Xbox One would start out slow, but I guess not (And didn't everyone hate the One or something before?)

Also, I'm still seeing the launch commercial for the PS4 on TV, it's been months right, and it's still on.

I thought the same thing. They still are, in terms of software, but the hardware is still selling.

People were all "angry" that it was called One, and had green instead of blue. Also, people were "angry" that they were being told about TV, sports, and CoD.

One and U are bad sub names, but 4 is ok, because the coin flip was heads with 3 possible outcomes.

Also, Kinect and the GamePad being required... People thought Microsoft might spy on them, even though Sony probably has more reason to.

People want Uncharted on Xbox, otherwise they'll go with PS4.

It's a strange world we live in. Green determines an opinion, a camera is now looked at as negative, and a Reggie gives out pizza.

I usually get a Sony console much later in it's life span when it's gone down in price and has the games I want to play already available. But since the titles I usually get a PS for have gone multiplat and I have this terrible habit of wanting to support "the underdog", I may just go for a XB1 instead...

If you look at the PS4 towards the other consoles, the PS4 has the most support from publishers, developers etc this is actually documented. The PS4 has 100+ games from 1st party's, 3rd party's to Indies that's releasing in 2014 alone, a sign of a healthy platform 3 months in.

@SCAR392 Lol its kinda funny. A developer could literally release a next gen port of Bioshock Infinite or anything like that during this drought for PS4 owners and they would go out and buy the game.

Hehehehehehe ya....hehehehe stupid dumb dumb PS4 owners buying next-gen ports of old games...hehehehehe

You know, I'd say you had a point, but then I remembered how incredibly stupid it was that Tomb Raider came out LESS THAN A YEAR AGO on the PS3. It guess it is proper that a system shouldn't have backwards compatibility so they can sell the same game nine months later for the same price.

Wind Waker was a GameCube game (which by the way could be played on a Wii as well!) that was remade for the Wii U (a system that can play Wii games!).

Considering PS3 owners bought "HD Collections" since their ultimate dude-bro powerhouse of a system was too pitiful to do backwards compatibility properly, I can see why no one's super upset about Tomb Raider "Definitive" edition.

EDIT: And on the topic of Wii Sports Club, Wii Sports is still playable on the Wii U (with that backwards compatibility thing that's become foreign to Sony for some reason), but there's incentive to get the new version for all of the incredible features the Wii U brings to it such as Miiverse, online play, and the enhanced graphics. Personally, I'm not getting this game since I still play Wii Sports on occasion, but for those that want the upgraded version, they can go right ahead.

My point being, Wii Sports vs Wii Sports Club gives Wii U owners the option to get the new version or the original for cheap. The PS4 doesn't give you that option, so you're just out of luck.

You made a thread complaining about the 'hair physics' in the Tomb Raider next-gen release not too long ago too. Something about this game has really gotten stuck in your craw, huh? I've never seen anyone who has neither played the game, nor even owns a console it's available on, be so upset about something like this.

It is a little too soon to say that the PS4 is the next PS2. We can see a momentum shift downward for the PS4 (and the Xbox One for that matter). Considering how the economy sucks and the market is fickle, anything is possible

@JohnRedcorn It's because both SquareEnix and Sony are BETTER than this. Sony dropped backwards compatibility for some arbitrary reason and SquareEnix just rereleased the same game! Sony is capable of making a powerhouse of a system that doesn't completely abandon the past iteration (as with the PS2 and original PS3s) and SquareEnix is capable of making new experiences or at the very least, not rehash a game less than a year old!

Wii Sports Club is crap compared to the original. Nintendo really messed it up with poor controls, laggy online, inane pricing scheme and poorly thought out Gamepad features like having Golf place your Gamepad on the floor. Just WTF!

Wii Sports fans have wanted a continuation of the series for 4½ years now. Why is it so hard to make a real Wii Sports 3 instead of this HD rehash crap? Wii Sports Club isn't an upgrade, it's a downgrade.
