    I have been a playstation fan from day one but i cant help but feel a bit let down with the PS4, firstly the fact that the instant game collection has one pretty terrible game 'Stick it to the man' available at the moment which i personally think sucks. I understand it will improve in time but for now i don't feel you get much value for money which is not fantastic for brand loyal customers. Secondly i thought that release of a taster section of the new Mgs for £24 was a bit cheeky and i hope if that is the start of a new trend for PlayStation that the consider giving it to PlayStation Plus cutomers for free (or something to that effect).I was also annoyed that the PS4 was not compatible with PS3 titles which meant either keeping both consoles to make the most of the gaming experience or do as i did and trade the PS3 and deal with the littel offerings that PlayStation Plus offers and buying a couple pretty expensive games to keep me going until PlayStation get their act together. I dont want to put a downer on the PlayStation brand or anything but i do feel that they could have done a quite few things better, as it stands i'm now questioning if i would choose this brand again in the future or look at something else.

    Look, both XBox One & PS4 are overpriced and they are put on the market before they are really technologically ready. I'm all for progress, but why we the gamers have to suffer i nusing the product that is not finished. The same goes for games which can't fullfill the framerates and are full of bugs. I know it's called deadline, but come on.. no one is gonna die if you release it a few months or even years later. Speaking of games, I found this link which will come handy if you're planning to buy any games at target.com... https://www.facebook.com/target.giftcards.7

    Ok reading this, the PS4 has me alittle worried... I keep my Xbox 360 on a glass shelf, and there's like a 1cm gap between the console and the above shelf which I stack my games on, and I have to say it gets pretty hot. When a PS4 dethrones my 360 and takes its place, does anybody know if a PS4 gets hot enough to do any damage to any games or anything that might be placed directly above it?

    Hate how hot it gets? Maybe I my PS4 was made with really good fans because my just gets a little warm. Even after hours of play it barley warm to the touch.

    In case you don't realise why it's a good thing to not have a lot of good games at launch is because it costs too much money, i would rather buy 2 games like cod and bf4, which i have, a long with the console for 450 poundish all together. Also i would end up losing my house if there were too many good games coming out because i can't help myself but to buy them XD. That's my opinion anyway, just wait for a year and there will be great games coming out. I can't wait until Fallout 4 and a David Cage game. I loved Beyond Two souls and heavy rain.

    Personally i like the fact that some launch titles aren't too amazing, this means that i will only be wanting to buy 2 games instead of 100 which is a good thing, especially with all the F2P games and instant game collection. i also like getting use to the new controllers, i don't rage as much when getting my ass kicked on a game like battlefield or cod, because i can just blame the new controller for a little while. The only bad thing is that you can only share on shitty social networking sites like shitter and fuckbook, and you even said if you don't agree with social networking sites, like me, that the share button is pointless, at least for the time being hopefully. It would be good if sony made a site where you can put all your clips and images on that is easily accessible through the PS4 and maybe have to buy room like 1gb for 5 quid or something. But i doubt they will when fuckbook and shitter are out, it will just encourage people to get fuckbook and shitter accounts though. But oh well, i guess it would cost money to put this on unless when the cloud is out i think it's called Gaikai cloud then maybe we will be able to put videos and images on there. I hope you don't have to pay for it though XD. Unless you are using 10 or more gbs, which i doubt i will be by the time that's out.

    I can't tell which part of this was updated.

    Living in Iceland finally pays off. No machine has ever even come close to overheating even in the warmest of weather.
  • Eightboll812 - November 22, 2013 4:08 p.m.

    lol. I know you are joking around, but the issues with heat aren't so much things getting too hot and then something breaking as a result. It's dramatic temp differences between running and off states. That combined with the fact that products can't contain lead anymore, and solder was a very useful thing to have lead in. The lead solder is much more durable. The non-lead solder deteriorates and tends to crack, which result in those hardware failures that are so well known.

    I haven't noticed any heat issues with my PS4. Maybe yours is an anomaly.
  • joshua-petras - November 21, 2013 3:45 p.m.

    I'm having second thoughts on buying PS4 soon. But i will get a PS4 within the next few months or so.

    Id have to say i hate the brand loyalty that both company's push down our throats. The fact that features they lie about and say cant be done have been done before on weaker tech. Or the idea that all of this could be solved with 3rd party cross play with most if not all systems. It creates drama for nothing. I dont see any of this as a war. Mre like school yard argument as to who has what. The few Sony exclusives vs the Xbox exclusives. Those are wide and few between no matter how you cut it. That being said both companys want us the consumer to play the fidle and fall in line with shobby business tactics and nickle and dime tactics for dlc and the like. Games dont just cost 60 anymore. They are anywhere from 100 to 120 or more just to have the full exp and even then you can only get 5 bucs back if you wanna trade up after your done. FAIL. Not to say that PC digital is sooo much better but the prices are lower the games dont die off as soon as the next ver comes out. The community is aloud to extend the games beyond anything a console can ever do. A part breaks in a pc or goes bad you buy new PART. Not the whole system. And its a myth as to have to pay soooo much more for a pc that plays games with now a days the prices go down so fast it would make sony and microsoft cry they cant buyy the new car they wanted so bad. Bottom line to my rant is that no matter what you do with whatever tech is that if you enjoy what you purchase without all the hassles. The fact these companys could care less to do research and then bring half made games out or no support for the consumer is why its sooo bad. The greed is there and its just getting worse because people with out half a brain buy right into it and eat it all up. Microsoft blew the whistle now everyone is leery about them Sony reacts and it becomes their gain when they were copying all the concepts from the start because they had no ideas. Both systems have their perks i guess you could call them that but have alot of other implications. Like down the road taking and locking the person who payed for it to be locked out from even using the system. Its not yours its theirs even if you pay for it and thats the sad future we are working up to.

    Brand loyalty doesn't have to be a bad thing. There are companies that do it right. I think Apple does a pretty decent job of maintaining brand loyalty without making it feel like you just signed up tor a lifetime of garbage shoveling. Their devices are overly expensive, but there's no gouging on software and extra ongoing fees, and the DRM is very unobtrusive. I can put even old apps on multiple new devices without having to buy the app again. But for such a pricing model to work, people have to vote with their wallets. I when the fanboys don't and stay rigidly loyal (at all costs) to one company, it screws it up for everyone. Sony was playing catch up last gen, so I think they tried to keep "online" free as a way to attract customers. They kept it free as long as they could but with the market still split essentially in half, you can say, the market voted against free online. I don't blame Sony for changing that. When your primary competition is making over a billion a year off their Gold service, and you aren't, that's a billion MS has to pay off Activision and others for paid exclusives, which then hurt your own customers. Online could be free on both platforms right now, if people had "demanded" it be free from MS. But no, too many fanboys running around prattling on about how superior XBL is (even though not armed with a single objective fact to support it) simply because that's what they are paying for and their egos are too fragile to handle the notion that they are paying $59 too much per year for permission to use their home internet connection. I went into the spring hoping MS might have an attractive offer, so I could find a reason to get an Xbox for this next gen. I came away feeling like I just got sprayed by a skunk, and it's going to take a long time to get that MS-stink off me to where I feel more neutral toward MS as a company.

    As for the talk of heat, I expect (and I may just be to cynical by now) that thses systems are designed to last about 2 to 3 years at most. That would fit with all the other money grubbing schemes they have adopted. It seems the idea of just putting out the best product and allowing it to earn on its merits are a thing of the past. Everyone who just accepts that and continues to fork over cash for things that should be free deserves what they get, or don't get, or stop getting.
  • commodore64 - November 17, 2013 7:24 a.m.

    I guess the point I wanted to make is that I will have nothing to do with the ps4, or any sony consoles, until they bring back backwards compatibility and allow full access to all of a features for free (after having paid 60 dollars for it of course).Untill then I have nothing good to say about playstations anymore. I was totally loyal till now, even waiting patiently for the ps3 to figure out how to play ps2 games. Then you came out with the 4 and abandoned any attempt to respect the fact that I have a huge library of games that are all but worthless now as both my remaining ps2 systems are crapped out and my ps3 will one day go the same, and then I will be sitting on 2 to 3 thousand dollar pile of crap that sony thinks will make me buy their new stuff - not gonna happen.
  • commodore64 - November 17, 2013 7:07 a.m.

    Since when does offering less service for more money count as the next big thing? I am abandoning sony after 15 years and at least 80 games(and 3 ps2s and a 3), because sony has decided I should just rebuy a few of my favorite games for whatever new system they put out or rebuy(again) an old system if I want to play all my games. I have been playing and investing in this crap for a long time. I am not some kid begging his parents for a present, I can buy what I want when I want, though I am NOTmade of money and can't waste money on companies that will try to fee me to death with online subscription fees (I already pay to much for internet). So instead of giving sony another couple thousand dollars this season I will just start looking for the next big idea in entertainment.
  • kram-veit - November 17, 2013 3:38 a.m.

    It's been the same since Vextrex came out. Standing in line to buy anything? Are you insane. I never saw a consul released that in a week people realized their games suck and it was a waste of money. But this will never change.
  • groovieknave - November 16, 2013 1:05 p.m.

    Sorry, but this isn't next gen. This is barely mid-range and hardly current tech. But at least we might see some games a little bit better than the horror show 360 and ps3 have been. Secondly, if heat worries you, I hope you don't turn anything on. Cellphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, can openers, microwaves, AA batteries and everything else gets hot. Most stuff runs at 100 degrees. Oh yeah and the human body temperature is near 98.5... My how fun it is to see ignorant fools getting suckered into instigated controversy. PS4 is the better choice, why? Because Xbone has no idea what gamers want. They're a marketing menace, they will make so many FPS and other boring games that you will wish you had something like Uncharted, Last of Us, Infamous, Killzone, Resistance, Folklore, ICO, Shadow Of Collosus, and god only knows what else they have in store for us. Sorry, but the quality of exclusives are on PS3/PS4. Does that mean I am a PS3/PS4fanboy? Not really. I bought both 360 and ps3, but wound up getting rid of the 360. I got sick of weak games with no story, Sony brought interesting stories, and cutting edge controllers. Also their subscription just hands you free games. Turns out they care about their gamers. Microsoft has no clue how to handle them. Would I jump ship the minute games and services become better on Xbone? Yes... Because I am not loyal to a company who can't stay competitive. Xbone is way behind in terms of exclusive content and service. But as always I am watching... Waiting to be a consumer. For now PS4 is the better choice, the games will come and I will be enjoying the best exclusives. I also have a PC, so anything Xbone releases will come out for PC as well. No loss on skipping Xbone. So, enjoy your ridiculous controversy, and console "war" because it is meaningless. Anybody who buys Xbone is missing out on some amazing art from Sony. While Xbone offers you a more expensive and boring tech. That's not to say they will have some good games... But they haven't matched SCEA but we shall see if they manage to make an interesting game. There's a reason the greats from bungie left, peter moluneux left, and I am sure any other creative mind. Sales and marketing are what Microsoft care about. Gamesradar only cares about headlines that spark controversy. We haven't had support for the real next gen for years. Still don't, and probably never will because consoles sell the games. More to the point, people pay for the same rehashes, and developers do not push systems or creativity. Because they want games to break record sales... They are too scared to take any chances on new games that aren't the same genre or the same story or the same results. Because people keep buying the same game with a different theme. It is never going to change until people realize that they vote with their dollar. Until then, I will support the system that has the better service. That is Sony. I realize most people don't care about story and gameplay anymore, all they want is their multiplayer death match. So I expect those who don't care to choose whatever system they have had. That's fine too. There is no reason to insult people for their choices, we are going to co exist regardless. Why would you want to fight with people you must co exist with? Now that is stupid!
  • Earthbound_X - November 16, 2013 3:30 p.m.

    "There is no reason to insult people for their choices" Says the guy insulting everyone that has a 360, and wants an Xbox One... Duh, me has 360, me can't handle story, duh....me only wanna shoot peoples in the face.
