Hey guy

 

  well , been on xbox live  from the start , love the community ,  lots of people talking on bf4 or cod , nhl 14 etc,  i really enjoy the interaction and talking.    

  My question is the playstation network like that ?  is it just parties  ?  Call me odd but i enjoy the screaming kid every now and then .   Will the playstation network give me the same experience ?  

 

love everything i hear about the ps4 but love the xbox live interaction .  any replies would be great

It's very similar yes. Especially in the infancy of a console cycle, the community is much more tighter and its much easier to approach people (In my opinion) since only the hardcore and faithful stick to the multiplayer.


This is why games like Warhawk emerged so strongly from the PS3 life and remains to memorable to a lot of people.

 

For multiplatforms, Battlefield is strongest on Playstation in terms of playerbase on consoles. If you are looking for a tight community I'd say that would be your best bet. Call of Duty is also really strong on PS4 as well.

 

Right now, PS4 is lacking on exclusive multiplayer experiences. The killzone community is small but that might make it a good thing if you get into that since its going to be a lot more faithful people playing.

 

I'm not sure of the sports community on either of the consoles. 

 

And yes PS4 has parties etc. There are tons of people who use the mic and talk. Even on PS3. Its a wrong to assume that nobody talks on PSN (because they do). I remember GTA Online had tons of little children screaming along with pessimists, racists and sexists. Downright vulgar community and I left the game as a consequence. I'd much rather avoid that but if you are looking for multiplayer experiences like that there are plenty on PS3 as well.

Sounds great.  thanx for the reply !

 

  Researching both the ps4 and xbox 1   , i like the ps4 alot better ,    looks like i may make the switch and get a ps4 .   I would assume the sports community is good aswell  being that cod and bf4 have good communities.

 

thanx alot for the info

Well you can always go onto one of the specific game board and meet a community.

 

You could check out the Battlefield forum and group together with some of the dedicated BF4 players. I think a lot of people who bought PS4s got Battefield 4 with the console when it launched so there are definitely alot of Battefield fans on PS4.

 

CoD, AC4, the same multiplatform games that were available on 360/xbox one etc, should all have dedicated boards for you to talk to. Join a clan etc.

 

Or you and your nephew could buy the same game so you could play together.

 

It is good that you are researching on the multiplayer aspect and community of these consoles. I know alot of my friends (personally) prefer to play singleplayer games or offline multiplayer games as opposed to online multiplayer games on PS3 or PS4. I think I've only played with real life friends online once or twice since I owned a Playstation console. I generally play with splitscreen offline multiplayer games with real friends (which is something else you should look into).

Why are you thinking of going to PS4 if you like everything about Xbox?


I Enjoy Gaming I don't hate anything about it!
The reason to buy a NEW console is to play NEW Games not old ones.

You really enjoy the screaming kid? Or you've just gotten used to it and tell yourself you like it so it isn't as annoying?
