Why do people say I'm not spending £400 on a console with hardly any games? I bet some how you didn't say the same as you got your Wii U, or are you just not going to buy any games for 7-8 years?

to be fair the Wii U had better exclusives at launch than the PS4, but even the 3DS sold over a Million at launch, and its launch lineup was possible the worst out of any major console release... so for every console there are at least a number of people that are willing to buy it on potential alone even if it'll make more sense to wait until the games arrive and price drop.. However those early adopters who overpay for things at launch even if they are not worth it at the moment are necessary because without them no console would ever get off the ground

Anyways, I don't think many people who bought the PS4 really wanted it for what was out then. I mean, it's not like the Wii U had alot in it's first few months. I think they bought it for what's coming out soon (Infamous Second Son, Watch Dogs, Drive Club, Kingdom Hearts 3). I bought the Wii U, for Smash Bros, and a bunch of other IPs that were guaranteed for the system.

No. I'm talking about the Store being down and PSN generally being pretty crappy in comparison to Xbox Live.

I'm not surprised you where paying for a service, or would you think a free service is better than a paying service? Basic common sense or am I wrong?

You mean for maintenance? anyone that owns a PlayStation should already know that doesn't effect online play.

It doesn't have BC, so every PSN purchase you have made, or will make on PS3 is useless.

Sony's well known for supporting there consoles, where as Nintendo not so much. When you think about it BC is a bit of a false future why? because I can tell you now Wii U 2 will not play Wii games, which mean BC is a gen long not for life or didn't Nintendo point this out? some how I think thay already have, eShop.

Infamous & AC are not like any other FPS out there, because thay are not FPS.

No. I'm talking about the Store being down and PSN generally being pretty crappy in comparison to Xbox Live. I had both, and my Xbox 360 always went online easier. I know that doesn't specifically apply to 8th gen, but it does effect my opinion.

You didn't read that other part right, I was comparing Killzone to any other FPS, and Infamous to Assassin's Creed. I worded it correctly, so I don't get how you misunderstood.

And your reasons are legitimate even if everyone doesn't agree...I swear though, responses like banacheck's just remind me how I'd avoid a Sony console just because of the annoying fanboys. Naughty dog is awesome...but everything else good is usually multiplat...so millions of annoying fanboys, a tiny controller, and mediocre, inflated multiplats like FFXV and KH3 that sell a ton and keep SE making garbage just so I can play Uncharted 4? No, no thank you. PC + Nintendo still seems the best way to go for me.

It's kind of like Justin Bieber. He sells a ton, acts like he loves his fans, but doesn't have a lot of real substance. Some things just aren't for everyone.

I think many find it odd because many conservative consumers don't buy something EXPECTING it to become great. If you think about it that way it's kind of odd why the PS4 is doing so well. I mean I have faith in Nintendo as a company but I don't buy their hardware until there is software to support the purchase. Besides, waiting for the games you want on any system may also get you a cheaper price. I didn't get the Wii U until their was 50 dollar price cut and 3D Mario World, Wonderful 101 and Wind Waker HD came out. The only people I know who next-gen systems bought them to play Call of Duty/Battlefield and sports games. That's probably what their whole library will consist of anyway.

Well said.

I didn't buy a Wii U until there was a price drop and there was more than a few games I was interested in. I wouldn't buy any console at launch unless it has something that absolutely blows my mind. Launch prices are too high when there will inevitably be a price drop within a year.. Sony might not have to do that with the PS4 though seeing as people are just eating it up. Time will tell though. They might need to do it to sell even more consoles so they can make up for the 1.1 billion dollars they lost this year.

As it stands, the lack of PS3 backwards compatibility kills it for me. Whereas there are already many, many games I want for the Wii U.

Well, if you consider that Xbox Live Marketplace still worked better without Xbox Live Gold, then the store was at least still more legitimate on Xbox 360.

Free online is great. That's another reason why I won't get PS4.

Alright! Congratulation to Sony for making an PS4 that sold a lot more than expected. I hope Sony doing well and perhaps Nintendo and Microsoft could learn a thing or two from you.

Well to be fair, majority of the users are Nintendo fans so you might have a congratulation party in a wrong place.

Umm… Care to have some gravy?

PS4 deserves an award for their PR brilliance but I'm quickly getting sick of the console with the least games (so far) destroying the competition.

I'll put it like this....
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition sold most on PS4..... why? Its not because the game runs smoother on PS4 or because there are people who refuse to buy the game cheap on last gen consoles and want it for next gen. Nah... Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition sold well on PS4 because most PS4 users are hungry for games. Most Xbox One users are still playing Dead Rising and Forza over and over until Titanfall releases. I have NOTHING against the PS4. I think its a great console and I want one when more JRPGs come out. But even I can gotta wonder why and how the PS4 is selling so well with barely anything new for it RIGHT NOW. I thought that most people would buy a PS4 when Infamous: Second Son comes out... LOL people are buying the PS4 even before that game comes out.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D

@R_Champ it depends on your taste of course, but Sony really stepped up its game in terms of exclusives both first and third party, it's just not accurate to say its just Naughty Dog and Multiplats

Specs. People look at PS4's high specs, and automatically don't give a damn about what games it gets. That's what it seems like, at least...

Wii U has more games than PS4, so it just makes PS fans look like hypocrites, because they basically did the same thing Nintendo fans did to support Wii U.

EDIT: Looking back, I bought any noteworthy game. ZombiU, CoD, Nano Assault Neo, NSMB.U, all day one. Injustice, Sonic, etc. I just bought whatever I thought was worthwhile.

It just cuts out sometimes. Also, there was a while where I had to wait 20+ minutes for system firmware updates. There was like 3 months straight where I had to update pretty often.

@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.

Pretty much. Deus Exon Wii U wasn't exactly on my list of games to get, but I ended up buying it for the sake of a new game. I ended up playing it for around 40 hours. I also had never played it before, so there's no shame in buyimg a slightky old game for a new console.

PS and Xbox fans trolled about that when Wii U launched, but now they they're doing the same thing. Maybe they learned something...

Mostly this. Believe it or not, guys, there are already lots of games lined up for the PS4, they just need to come out. And for a lot of people, if even half of them turn out to be good, they'll be set. I know outside of Final Fanasty XV, there's also Kingdom Hearts, Battlefront, inFamous, Killzone, Transistor, and a few others that I'm already interested in that I'm sure I'll enjoy a lot. Maybe I'll get some upgraded last gen games, too, like Diablo III, Assassin's Creed IV, and Guilty Gear Xrd.

Not everyone buys something for what's already out, since there are certain things you can legitimately expect to see, especially if they've already been announced. I'm sure many of you will be looking forward to Smash Bros., X, and whatever else Nintendo can pump out. It's no different with the PS4 fans (even with the first party stuff, there are millions who care about Sony's IPs, no matter how much you people don't want to believe it).

Doesn't talk about games.
