Should I wait on the ps4?!?

12 replies 212 views Edited Jun 24, 2013

Ok so I currently have two ps3's and more than 25 games...I am going to college this fall and I was wondering if I should invest in the ps4 (since it actually is affordable for a brand new system).  My plan is right now is too just bring my  ps3 with me but the new games that are coming out are amazing....so idk...My only drawback is that I don't know if it will be worth it since I'm going to be in college.

If you have any experience with this or give any advice I thank you in advance!!!

I would say it's worth the investment, and the fact that you won't have a lot of games to start with shouldn't be a huge deal, since you will be busy with classes in the first place.

 

I would hang onto your PS3, though.  Plenty of games coming for that, still.

It's worth the investment.  figuring that $400 will last you well for the next 5-6 years until the new cosnole comes out. I'm half way through college and still plan on purchasing one

My thought process is that you should get the PS4 now, that way you don't have to worry about coming up with the $400 later.

It won't be worth it. Just wait and buy it later. It will be cheaper in a year, and you will have more games to choose from.

Probably not that early, it's already $399.

1st time freshman?

 

If your living on campus keep your PS3. It will save money that you will need to buy Ramen.

 

Your schedule aside, the first few months will be scoping out the situation getting used to the workload and finding friends. Once you know what your new found friends are into, then consider a PS4 purchase.

 

I'd also like to point out that pre-orders are likely sold out for launch and the first few months regardless, so you won't be getting one right away unless you campout for launch.

 

I say save the money, use the PS3, and make some friends.

Get one whhen yo uare ready. If yo ustill enjoy your PS3, save up and get the PS4 when you have games you want. I didn't plan on goign back the sony route becuase I was disappointed in the PS3, yet becuase I will be playign FFXIV and want to play bungies new game, I knew I needed too get a ps4.

 

BAse it on games, when the time is right and don't make rush purcahse decisions.
