    Figured you Sony boys (and girls) would like a thread for the PS4. Here it is!

    Finally, a video of the PS4 UI has leaked, and here it is:

    The PS4 controller feels a lot better than the previous PS controllers. I think some of those complaints will die now.

    Interesting that people would rather complain about the XOne than discuss the merits of the PS4.

    I'm going to sit on the sidelines - probably for a year until the first price break. By then, hopefully, it is clear which console is dominating. I just have a hard time justifying a $500+ investment (when you include a few games) for something that will gather dust most of the winter while we ski.

    My Xmas gift may be a Hero 3 instead :devil:

    I'm a bit afraid that their isn't much news regarding the PS4 since mine has already been shipped and I have no clue what to expect. I think XBone won the pre-release battle. I'll probably buy the XBone once the PS4 gets stale or breaks. Hopefully the price will drop a bit before that happens.

    I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the 360. I probably made the wrong decision though.

    I just didn't have a great experience with my PS3. I didn't like the Naughty Dogs games (sold my PS3 before Last of Us), and any cross platform I played on the 360. I hated the PS3 controller (haven't held the PS4 version yet), and over time the 360 turned into my homes entertainment center.... thus the Xbox One is very appealing to me.

    However, the PS4 is already more powerful, so it may be something I pick up in a few years when the prices drop. I will probably get an Xbox One first, and then weigh the merits of a PS4.

    I'm not in a big rush to purchase the ps4 I'll wait through the Holliday season or for a competitive price or game bundle. But I haven't really read up on the ps4 what will make this system better than the 3 or New Xbox?

    Got one PS4 and two XBONE's pre-ordered. The PS4 and one (maybe both) XBONE are hopefully destined for resale online for an epic markup for desperate rich parents that didn't pre-order, but must provide the system of choice for their brats. There aren't any launch games that I really want on the PS4, but a couple I want to play on the XBONE.

    I just read an article that the supply is a lot better this launch. At worst you make your money back.

    I expect a similar score for the xbone, getting dinged up for the weaker internals

    Polygon and the verge suck, but they aren't obscure

    If I haven't heard about it, then they are obscure.

    but seriously I went to polygon.com and that **** is all in Chinese.

    Eh, no worries. I'm planning on having both of them ultimately so if there is no demand, I'll just return the extra XBONE during the return period.

    After reading some of the initial reports, I may pick up a refurbished Xbox 360 and a game or two for about $200 and then wait it out. My kids are getting old enough now that I have some time to myself on the weekends. My original 360 get the RROD 6 months after the extended warranty period expired, so I have been out of the game for a while, so to speak.

    You didn't know that? There was some furor over it during the last few weeks. Basically, all the media center capabilities were stripped out.

    Sony claims they will patch them in, down the line.
