Why are you bringing up XBL in a sony thread? Well, no matter, but you're wrong. XBL is leagues ahead of PSN in terms of stability and online multiplayer. I have both consoles and while I enjoy them both, XBL comes out on top for online.

The weird thing about the PS4 is that the people I know who have it don't really play games and just felt the need to upgrade.

>>322827863
For me, it is the weeb games. PS4/PS Vita is, currently, the best for CURRENT GEN weeb games.

Of course PC has emulation, so it is better for older ones, and emulation aside, PC is very close in terms of recent weeb games.

Good thing I have both.

3DS has a decent amount of weeb games, but not as many. I have one just for the rare occasion a good weeb game is released (FE, Bravely Default, SMT).

So let me get this straight, instead of being happy that you can actually record snippets of gameplay you don't even need to post to anything and can take screenshots on demand without any need for a capture card or software you'd rather bitch about the option to upload said things to services you don't even need to.

Weeb games are the only good games, and PS4 will get all of the weeb games eventually, just like all of its predecessors.

Still the most underwhelming generation ever. I have a whopping 4 games for my PS4 after 5 months of ownership (Ground Zeroes, MGSV, Bloodborne and Disgaea 5).

Thankfully, I got 90 hours out of Bloodborne and I'll probably get at least a hundred out of D5.

You do realize these functions are built into the graphics cards, right? All the functions to record and screenshot are from a dedicated section of the graphics card completely isolated from all the regular business.

I like that I can straight up take snippets and make webms, or keep a collection of screenshots of when I enjoyed a game. You thinking you're paying extra for these features when they're part of the package is idiotic.

Never underestimate the incompetence of the average consumer. Even if you think it's simple to build a computer, normies would be at a complete loss even with a step-by-step instructional video.

They want something they can put under the TV that will play most major titles as well as video streaming like Netflix and Hulu. Sony provides.

>You do realize these functions are built into the graphics cards, right? All the functions to record and screenshot are from a dedicated section of the graphics card completely isolated from all the regular business.

you sound like you think when companies manufacture video cards they throw this shit in for free. it takes time and money to develop and manufacture that section, a cost that is passed on to the consumer and would be better spent optimizing games.

i don't expect a PS4 buyer to understand that people buy consoles to play games, but try pulling your head out of your ass a little bit.

>and would be better spent optimizing games.
You act as if the manufacturers of the video cards have any sway over how shit the developers are at optimizing their game. You don't have to build around it as you have no access to the functions the screengrabbing or video recording and it's built into the system itself. Any gain you would get from not having the capturing functions would be negligible at best.

>i don't expect a PS4 buyer to understand that people buy consoles to play games,
and I did buy it to play games, you know what else I got? The ability to share said games' experiences with others, regardless if it's social media or a forum.
>>
>>322832670

The PS4 literally has a custom processor dedicated exclusively to recording gameplay. It doesn't share resources available for running games.

It's not so much about what the ps4 did right as what the other consoles did wrong. The wii u is not considered a true next gen console and the xbox one was advertised initially as more of a media center than a game console. The red ring of death fiasco has also done a lot to damage consumer confidence in microsoft developed hardware.

My guess is it's the new and shiny. You can sell the unnecessary, things people didn't know they wanted, or even bad ideas as long as it's not too obviously stupid, and is it's a new and shiny.

Ouya? A dumb idea, badly executed, total inexperience, and it got backing and sales up front because it was new and shiny. Sans with the Wii.

It's just the new thing. If there were anything better and convenient (as in a straight out of the box hook up and go) comparably proceed and marketed or would seem the logical winner. Their only real competition is the Xbone, so there's that.

Same reason the 360 did well last gen, it sold cheaper, has the better version of multiplats, everyone got one, and people kept buying them because everyone they know has them. Normies play mutliplats on consoles, so they're buying these things to play multiplats with their friends.
>>

>Normies play mutliplats on consoles, so they're buying these things to play multiplats with their friends.
The fact that people here don't understand this and don't understand that said multiplats are actually games for console astound me. Yeah, no shit you can play it on the Xbone and PC, they don't care, the multiplats themselves are part of the deal, exclusives aren't the only thing they're going to buy(If they're going to buy them at all).

>>322840738
Because they're expensive if they plan on changing them out every console cycle, they are usually underpowered for how much you're paying, and they think if they want to play games they need to spend Alienware levels of cash to play anything decently.
>>
>>322840738

>Then why they don't buy a pre-built pc?

Because Vendors usually sell them at outrageous prices. I remember buying a pre-built PC once. Dell XPS in 2004. Fucking thing had so many problems and the PSU was built in thus you couldn't remove it. On top of the horrendous amount of noise it made and was heavy as fuck primarily because the bottom half was packed with metal to make it feel to the normie as if it's a powerful machine.

Never. Ever. Also the normies don't know a good price and will usually believe anything below $2000 is bad.

they cost anywhere from 800 to 1000+ dollars and usually include Nvidia HD Dedicated Graphics!*

It's not the other two.

Literally the reason why the 360 sold as much as it did early on

Literally the reason why the PS1 sold as much as it did

Literally the reason why the NES sold as much as it's "competitors"

This has been happening for over 40 years. Nothing changes and nothing ever will.
>>
>>322841156

>Because they're expensive if they plan on changing them out every console cycle

Well to be fair, it hasn't been like this since like Gen 6. Gen 7 consoles lasted for 8 years for the 360 and 7 years for the PS4. That's a long fucking time. And Generation 8 consoles right now were underpowered when they came out in 2013 compared to their predecessors in 05-06.

Saying they should change it out every console cycle was a mistake on my part. I should have said every couple years since the games start running pretty terribly unless you drop the resolution and graphical quality down heavily which some people might find unsatisfactory. There's also the whole deal with optimization.

And somehow PCucks will say that fun I had doesn't count. They will ignore the convenience of carrying a console around rather than a tower PC, casually getting games you would otherwise never buy but are still fun as fuck (pic related), the ease of use, and fun multiplats I can also play on the PS4.

I don't even need to talk about exclusives, the experience is comfy even before the bulk of them arrives

It only sold well due to cheap price. Cheaper price and with power to outdo the other consoles even by a sliver is all that's required.

>I should have said every couple years since the games start running pretty terribly unless you drop the resolution and graphical quality down heavily which some people might find unsatisfactory.

It's absurd it happens since almost all PC games in the past 8 years have been console ports. It all comes down to how sloppy the Console port is in terms of optimization. Buying the latest 1080GTX just to play a game that plays perfectly on a console with an equivalent of a 660GTX is bullshit.

Traded my Xbone for a Wii U as i prefer casual "jump in/jump out" games. But there are 3 genres i see as the best on the PS4

1. Japanese weeb type games
2. Fighting games
3. Sports games

Beyond that, i don't feel too compelled to buy one. Hell evem Forza has displaced Gran Turismo as THE driving game.

When will you faggots learn that gaming has been dead ever since companies realized that normies don't mind taking shit like Clicker Heroes? Normies prove that they'll take braindead, quarter-ass games for full price, and they get braindead, quarter-ass games for full price.

No other competition. Nobody gives a shit about MS exclusives anymore and Nintendo fucked up with marketing the WiiU and the disgusting localization they've done for Jap games plus the region locking, plus WiiU has no 3rd party because the hardware is piss poor.

Unless NX is some god tier shit and Nintendo redeem themselves to the consumer base and to the customers they lost, PS4 will continue to sell since it's actually getting games now, however I won't buy one personally until there's enough single player games as I will not support the kikery that is PS+.
