PS4 Is It Really Worth It?

GamerFitNation: The PS4 has officially been announced this past week as Sony’s next generation console. From the announcement the system looks like it is full of new and exciting features such as 8GB of unified memory (the PS3 only had about half a GB split between its video and system ram) and x86 architecture which makes the PS4 very much like a PC. The system’s graphics look better than ever; they are all finely detailed and textured. (Gaming, PlayStation 4)

it's worth it if you're gonna use it.

True. This article sounds like either it's from a PC gamer bashing PS4 or a broke-ass gamer lol
KingPin  +   410d ago

just saying. ;)

does it matter? both PS4 and the next xbox will sell millions and only a biased person will deprive himself of ether system

It's because of people like you we haven't gotten to Mars yet.

"Captain, are we gonna get there alive"
Does it matter? We've spent billions of dollars and are floating around in space.

It depends how much it costs really, it has great specs but at the end of the day no matter how powerful it is a £600 price tag doesn't warrant buying it.
mushroomwig  +   410d ago
Where are you getting £600 from? It won't be anywhere near that amount, £300/350 seems likely.
Deku-Johnny  +   410d ago
Because the Wii U costs £300 and is being sold at a loss. The PS4 is about 3 or 4 times as powerful as the Wii U. If the PS4 sells at a similar price to the Wii U Sony will be losing hundreds on each unit sold and in their current financial state they really can't afford to do that.

Deku-
A large portion of the Wii-U's price is being taken up by that ridiculous controller. PS4 could sell at $400 for base model and $500 for a premium package that would help Sony minimize the loss of the basic model.

@Deku - PS3 was £425 in the UK at launch, and was using proprietary technology. There's no way the PS4 will be more than that, and it's extremely likely that we're looking at a £300-350 price point.

This "$600" PS4 can output better graphics than my $2000 PC.

Worth it?

You tell me!
snoop_dizzle  +   410d ago
If it's around $300 or $400 I probably will jump on it. But I may hold off for a while.

I will be interested to see the exclusives the Xbox 720 gets. If most end up on the PC (which I mostly play) the PS4 might be the only next gen console I own. I owned a 360 and a PS3 this generation and am glad I did, but after starting to PC game again, and exclusives becoming rarer, PC gaming is where I mostly game now (my PC is connected to a home theater and a TV as a primary display, so it's more lounge gaming like a console).

Although, I will probably use the PS4 mostly for multimedia and Blu-ray with some gaming on the side, which I do now with my PS3. But as it is, my PS3 (an original 60gb PS3, actually) still is running strong, so I shall wait and see.

I keep seeing people mention $300 and I don't understand why. Wii U is 350. 300 is not anywhere near realistic, Not even just hoping for it. I'd say between $400-500, maybe right in the middle.

Depends on its games

This same article has come up after the announcement of every PS console that has come, & probably every MS, Nintendo & Sega console as well.

Come up with something original dumbasses.....of course "it is really worth it", if it wasn't, me, & millions like me, wouldn't be getting one on launch.

Hell yeah!!, by just reading the specs over and over and watching just released video meet with all the yummy next-gen games teaser trailers. Definitely!
KingPin  +   410d ago
well it depends.

Does it have features you going to use/want?
Does it do something you cant do with any of your current hardware?
Does it do something your current hardware can do but is much more efficient at it?
Does/will it have a plethora of games that you going to want to play?
If the price is within your budget would you pay to have one?

if you answered yes to 4 out of 5 questions above, chances are you going to see the PS4 as a product thats worth it.
TheOneEyedHound  +   409d ago
the most i'll pay is 1000, though I know that won't happen.
The playstation experience and exclusives are worth more than 1000 to me.

Hell to play the MGS saga again for the first time, I'll give a hell of a lot more.
AceofStaves  +   409d ago
It will be worth it to me. Sony has provided me with a wealth of gaming enjoyment over the past 15+ years, and I see no reason not to purchase a PS4. I only play casual games on PC and prefer both handheld and 'living room' consoles for most of my gaming experiences.

I was going to skip this console gen, but what I saw from the PS4 event caught my interest.

The Wii U should have never cost so much but the issue was they have a tablet included with a console. think of it like a ps3 with Vita. 399 i think PS4 with be around that price.
