Honestly, and be kind please, I've only owned a Playstation, the PS3, for about one month before selling it because the controller was very uncomfortable. It looks like the DS4 has fixed the comfort issues that bothered me about the DS3. Since switching consoles is a pretty big deal for me--I can only afford one of the new consoles for monetary and time reasons--I'm very curious what is going to keep around the Playstation veterans.
While I know that many people have a preference for one system or the other, I just want the system that offers the best experience--i.e. (in order of importance) community, fun, games (I've always lamented not being able to play the Uncharted series), graphics--for me as a gamer and am becoming more and more convinced that PS4 is the right system for me. I also recognize that this is pure speculation and do not want to retread old ground by entering into a console debate. As an Xbox owner for years, I feel like I know exactly what I'll be getting into with the XB1, but the PS4 is completely foreign to me.
So I would love to hear from the Playstation veterans. What have you loved about being a member of the PS community? What have you been frustrated by? You don't need to convince me that the PS4 will be great because I already think that. And can we please refrain from negativity directed toward those who respond.
Thanks in advance. I really appreciate your honest opinions.
Well for me, it's certainly not the free avatars, themes, and games we used to get. Now it's just the fact that I already paid $50 and cloud storage is why I still have Playstation Plus.
I got one in May and have gotten used to controller and found it very comfortable. Coming from Xbox I don't have a problem with paying for a premium service with added free games. Of course Microsoft acting like game Nazi's helps me stay with my new PS3.
Love the games and the community. Playstation community has a bunch of really chill people.
That's great. The Xbox community is extremely aggressive and hostile in the forums and on Live. Do people who don't know each communicate during games? For example, can you meet mature gamers in a random lobby and work together for a few matches to win some games?
I've been with Playstation since the first batch of jumpy screen PS1's rolled out. I own a 360 and a launch PS3. Over the years the PS3 has gotten for more use and for one reason; GAMES! It's all a matter of opinion but the Playstation offers gaming experiences that cannot be found on PC or 360. The PS4 looks to be expanding on the Playstation reputation of offering one of kind gaming experiences and as such I will not be getting an Xbone; at least not for while. Bottom line, it's all about the games.
