Well I have owned them all and I am about to get a PS4. why? PC gaming is becoming unpredictable and just a cash cow for NVidia, amd, intel, radeon etc etc etc etc etc etc etc

a crappy xbox 360 still plays games after 10 years plus. yet how many upgrades or new rigs have you completed as pc users in that time to play the same game that your old pc specs blows to bits the console hardware?

just seems wrong and false economy. Not to mention a rip off.

despite having a good system just now that plays COD advanced warfare on ultra settings I am still going to make the move across to console...... for the long term.

Keyboard and mouse? got that covered using the Venom-X where I can plug in and play my gaming pc and mouse. so that's that problem solved. 75 outlay on day one for that hardware = good investment.

Just look at the steam game users........dota2 and counter strike and maybe tf2 aside the pc world is dead as such.

People are waking up. Each year developers like those at COD is just taking the piss. letting an old rig from 10 years ago play the game with no issues. But a new PC, not to mention even one 2 years old (no chance) struggles due to optimisation issues. Pointless.

Unless a pure PC game is being played like counter strike, tf2, dota2 etc then for everything else, console is the way to go, either that or you chuck bad money after bad.

the xbox I bought my kids years ago is the best 80 I ever spent. No sign of giving in, lays every game, no questions. This time o am getting on the ground level and not giving any of these monkeys any more money

Amen

Yeah you can upgrade the hard drive on the PS4 but not the xbox1. Although xbox1 now accepts external hard drives.

Only reason I am choosing the ps over the x is that the kids will automatically claim the xbox as theirs due to their friends list etc and that's the console they want. But not buying both the boys one just now, they can wait until easter for my bonus

PS4 appears the better machine and with holiday game bundles a better value in my op.This will replace a xbox 360.

Heres the hard drive i used.

Seagate Expansion STBX2000401.$80 US.
Link http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-how-to-cheaply-upgrade-your-ps4-to-2tb

Loaded a few games 50gb+ per game/update.That 500gb hard drive that comes with PS4 is useless.

Im not a consolE guy.Any tricks for the PS4?

No idea mate, watch a YouTube vid.

the ps4 is about gaming, xbox has the extra rings and bells about being an all in one entertainment system like half screen with your tv channels etc.

PS4 has some kind of share button on the controller so you can share gameplay instantly with YouTube, facebook etc. System auto records 15 minutes of gameplay on a rolling basis.

on the ps3 there was no real native way to stream films etc from pc to ps3 to tv. hoping they have addressed that, had to use a third party program for that.

Gaming then ps4 the machine, social and entertainment then xbone.

Only negative I can see thus far with the ps4 as I don't give a monkeys about the entertainment things is that they still need to address the servers. xbox live still wins that hands down. Only other point raised would be that most unique titles for the ps4 are more aimed at single player where as the xbox is all about the multiplayer

That said, ps4 systems have sold much better this time so a real good player base there that might help. I have a slight theory on that........

ps4 has sold a lot more due to the more mature gamers buying them because they have the money. I still think the xbone will end up winning the sales race due to the kids. Parents will start parting with the cash soon. The kids could loose friends from their ever growing friends list of gamers and also the all important points/rep etc they have built up as a gamer or even in games life FIFA where you can transfer your team from xbox360 to xbone.

For me it still looks like the ps4 just so my kids don't take over it but I still have some reservations right up to the end..........

1 - xbone is bigger and more ventilated and better equipped for over heating this time, ps4 is very slim in comparison and might run into trouble

2 - ps servers not great

3 - xbone at this moment has better unique games

4 - ps4 controller does not hold much charge v xbone

5 - finally much better console game bundles to be had in the uk for the xbone, worth at least an extra game for the same price.

going to be a long few weeks

Consoles are for people who lack the skill or coordination to play with keyboard and mouse, all the buttons confuse them.
