>>322991535 I only linked that setup because that's what I based my build off of, I only added a few more hard drives for porn and dank memes, and I can guarantee it does a lot better than my xbone
inb4 "but anon thats not even the best console!" the ps4 has like one extra pixel and a few more frames versus xbox. thats the best gaming i3, the 950 reks, and 8gb ram gets you a long way. This is a steal for $460
Which one has exclusives that you find more interesting? Which one do your friends have? Everything else is pretty minor.
Me I wanted to play Forza so I bought a Forzabox. I happen to know a lot of people who also have bones so I sometimes pick up games for it to play with them. Otherwise I still use my PC for everything else.
PS4 is the best choice unless you're like every other xbone boy. Playstation and XBox are both great, don't get me wrong. But playstation is better. You'll have a lot more fun with something that isn't meant to spy on you and be your literal whole entertainment world in one shitty box. This is Microsoft after all. The company that gave us Windows 10.. Which steals camera feeds.. Passwords.. Etc. But, hey.. Even PSN can get knocked out. Anything is shitty. Ps4, again. Better controller. Better looking (imo). I'm a fan boy. Both are good. But in my opinion.. PS4. Have fun with either or. Do research and get what you think is best for you. Sorry for the random spiel.
>>322990903 ps4 >They are upgrading API, maybe it will speed up code execution and you get 1080p quadriple ultra hd super gaming >Possible CFW in near future. BEWARE though most of the titles are WEEBSHIT even bloodborde wasn't without FUCKING DOLLS. VS DRM THE BOX
>>322994428 I said it wasn't viable, not impossible. Connecting a PC to a television in front of the couch and constantly alternating between screen and monitor is a huge pain in the fucking ass and I don't care what accessories you use. With Consoles, it's plug in and play, with PCs, it's connect the HDMI cable into the television, then make sure Steam Big Picture is active so you don't have to use M&K, then have to research which games have controller support, then research which games have controller support that isn't total shit.
Over xmas I gifted a long time friend a $15 vinyl album (Deltron 3030 Event II) and the next day he surprised me with a PS4 because I was the only person to gift him. TL;DR I have a console with a couple of games now.
I missed some titles on the PS3 and I'm interested in playing some games that my mid-high range PC won't run. Currently I have Farcry 4 (pretty decent, more of 3 and Blood Dragon but I enjoyed those games for what they were), Shadow of Mordor (borrowed, repetitive but surprisingly fun), and Dying Light (I was a sucker for Mirror's Edge and Dead Island).
Suggestions on weeb or exclusive games? No Bloodbourne pls, I don't like Souls games. I know the JoJo games are all fanservice but I love the manga so I was considering trying the first game. And the Yakuza series for sure. Also what are some neat things I can do with my PS4? Play pirated movies? How do I into Share function?
>>322990903 Literally neither. Wait another paycheck, take the crunch and invest in any reasonably half decent computer and reap the benefits of cheap or free games for years to come. Grab a cheap Xbox 360 controller and download all the console emulators. Unless you enjoy paying for online and full $60 games... PC cheapest in the long run.
>>322991535 Nobody said you have to buy all brand new parts for full price. Console babies probably didn't know this but a games machine is made of multiple components. No reason you can't trade in or sell stuff to buy second hand RAM, case, peripherals and hard drive
But that's really all it comes down to. Even more so if you already have a pc that can run all the multi-plats better than the consoles that are available. The entire concept of exclusives is awful but it really is the primary deciding factor.
Then again, people have always bought consoles of their choice for their library. Arguments about specifications and business practice are 90% afterthought to justify their decision.
>>322992151 Halo 5 was an overhyped joke many people bought an Xbone years in advance for. Halo MCC is still a shit show and Titanfall is better and cheaper on the PC. Nobody even knows what Rare Replay is.
As if exclusives are a reason to invest in either console
How come every system/platform/build thread turns into an argument about who can pinch pennies the hardest? I mean there's being budget-conscious and there's being a cheap bastard. Does nobody on /v/ have any disposable income to spend on their hobbies?
Buy a PS4, specially if u r interesed in the japanese game scene, persona 5, gravity rush 1 & 2, AAA good stuff like uncharted 4, until down, bloodborne, some good indies like home free and push me pull you
>>323005015 >the worst halo game Thank you for confirming both your stupidity, your secondary status and the fact that you never played it, and never will play it.
>collection of old games Yes and? They're fantastic games, and most are better than literally every exclusive on the PS4 barring Bloodborne. Emulation isn't the same either because you don't have access to the remastered versions, you don't get anything in one package and everything original Xbox and up is difficult as fuck to emulate.
>collection of old halo games Again, far better than anything on the PS4 barring Bloodborne. Also if you weren't stupid and actually played the game, you'd know the multiplayer works now.
>dead multiplat Only further reinforcing the fact that you never played it.
>have a nice pc >been mustard race for over a decade without looking back >some friends at work egged me on for months to get an xbox so I can play games with them >finally decide to do so because why not they're fun people >thinking to myself about how stupid it is to get a console just to play inferior versions of games I could get for pc or already have for pc >get everything set up and join a part with friends from work >play for 10 straight hours and never once think about any of the drawbacks I associate with consoles
I guess it's like a scaled up version of how even shitty games or movies are fun to play/watch with friends. I still can't use a controller to play FPS for shit though. So now I find myself playing my xbone even when none of my friends are on just to git gudder but god damn it's a steep slope to climb. I get absolutely destroyed and I'm not used to that.
Halo 5 campaign is the worst (best level design for on-foot part though), but the multiplayer is goat Halo MCC mostly works but lacks basic features (no player count? no search after game is ended? holy fuck 343). still better than 80% of multiplayer games on nextgen Rare Replay is shit and I'll never understand the "30 games for 30$ OMG ITS A DEAL", most of those games are crap Titanfall is all but dead and it's the best new IP of the generation as of now
X1 is cheaper in everything (console itself, online sub, games) and has decent exclusives, if you're not a weeb there's no reason to own a nogamestation4. WiiU+PC is still better unless you really want to play halo and gears and/or don't like nintendo games
If you're really going to play games like uncharted, ratchet and crash then you should kill yourself because you're clearly retarded
