New xbox convert

Hello playstationers.  I am new to these forums as I have decided to go for the PS 4 instead of the xbox one .

 

I am currently a 360 player, but have decided to switch for various reasons.  Mainly because I enjoy RPG/adventure games, and the ps4 seems to have more of those games.  The xbox is more for first person shooters.  The rpg games that they do have will be on the ps4 anyway (elder scrolls, fallout etc).  Fable is utter rubbish.  I also am not interested in the xbox's fixation on KINECT.  Although it is a good bit of gear, it just isn't for me.

 

Sony seem to be far more GAMER orientated, as opposed to multi media.

 

I used to own a ps2, and very briefly a ps3 (but was enjoying the 360 at the time so got rid of it again, poor decision)

 

I cant wait to get the ps4 and am looking forward to using these forums with you.  I hope you will accept me into the community.

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Maybe, but xbox seem to put the multi media up ahead of actual gaming.  PLAYSTATION seem to concentrate on games then the multimedia.  Just my view though.

Maybe i put to much emphasis on the multi media side.  The biggest reason for swapping is for the rpg's. and the ps4 suits my needs better at a better price, and no camera forced upon me.

I think with the PS3 sony were pushing the multi-media thing a lot more than the 360 was, whereas the Xbone is pushing it more than the PS4. Alot of the multi-media on the PS4 is almost identical to what is on the PS3.

Xbox 1 have also hidden much of theirs behind their paywall.  At least with the playstation i can get Netlix without being forced to pay the live suscription.

While I have no doubt that you are making an excellent purchase, I have to call to question one thing. Why 'convert' at all? Why not just buy a different system? Just curious. Also, PSN will undoubtedly be a heavy-hitter this year, but I still think Xbox Live with it's absurd amount of servers and focus on it's network component will still reign as the number 'One' online service :smileywink:

I dont tend to be much of an online gamer. Im mainly a single player player if you know what I mean. So the online service isn't a driver for me. Also, I didn't like microsofts attitude when the xbox one was announced. Price was another factor of course. Like I said before, the playstation seems better for rpgs.

If that's the case then you are making a fine choice in platform. Have you tried Uncharted? Last of Us? Top notch single player experiences.

I tried Uncharted 3 when i briefly had the ps3.  It was great graphically, but i found the gameplay a bit 'lumpy'.  Probably didnt give it enough time to get used to the ps3 controls.  I regret not finishing it now.  By the time The Last of us came out i had already got rid of the ps3, much to my regret.  These are the sort of games that i am getting the ps4 for.  Forget Halo and the likes.

Well apart from Ryse I can't see you missing out on too much single player goodness with the PS4. If you liked Multiplayer it might be a different story, but as you like the single player PS4 will undoubtedly be your buddy there.

For some reason RYSE doesnt appeal to me.  Dont know why.  The first game i will be playing will be Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag.  Thats my favourite sort of game, roaming around at my own pace.

Fair play, but there is no way in hell I'm jumping in the water with Great Whites. Game or no game, the atmosphere will freak me out.
