Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

I've just got a PS4 and I'm happy with it so far. I'm playing CoD Advanced Warfare and I think it's superb, I was bored with the franchise by MW3 but this one really is excellent.

My only bugbear at the moment is the lack of a proper remote control being available for the system, but it's not the end of the world. I've read that there's been complaints that the battery life on the controller is inferior to the PS3 at 6 hours-ish, but I've never got the time to play for that length of time in one sitting anyway, and I sit close enough to my TV to have it plugged in when I need it to anyway. Plus any micro USB cable will work with it. All minor niggles nothing more.

My PS3 has been relegated upstairs, but I think they are still a really good bit of kit so I haven't sold it, and will still use it for the odd game and Netflix/Blu Rays etc. I also prefer the simplicity of it's UI over the PS4, which looks more cluttered to me.

I'm looking forward to playing Grand Theft Auto 5 on it. It blew me away on the PS3, in fact seeing the side by side graphics comparison of it with the PS4 version was what planted the seed to go out and buy the console.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Rumor has it that there will be a Red Dead Redemption Remastered release and then RDR 2. Red Dead was my absolute favorite game of the last gen so I can't miss out on this/ I think Im finally ready to pull the trigger on one of these consoles, but it's just so hard to choose. Originally it was a no brainer, PS4 ,but MS has really turned it around. I can't decide better multi-plats on PS4 but Xbox has all the exclusives I actually like. Of course most of those will see a PC release as well..............

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Yeah, I heard about the RDR rumor. If true, it should be rather impressive considering what they've done with GTAV. Although, it is an older game, so in context, the jump in quality should be even more amazing than GTAV's jump from last-gen to current-gen. An RDR sequel would be one of those games that would make me get the console.

Red Dead Redemption was my favorite game last gen and I would buy and replay a remastered version in a heartbeat. Playing GTA V right now on XBox One, the desert portions of Blaine County with Trevor look stunningly realistic, so I could only imagine what Red Dead would look like.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Isn't it rather sad that companies woudl rather revive previous generation games than come up with equally good games from scratch?

The very first game to absolutely capture me was the new Dragon Age Inquisition (i already put in around 50 hours and am barely at the mid point with tons of stuff still to do) and everything else i am interested in are remakes.. GTAV and The Last of Us.

It's been a year and the game selection is still abysmal and only now for the Christmas business are the new consoles receiving some A level games.

Well, games do take time to make. I'm really excited about some of the PS4 games coming out in 2015.

It pretty much started with the HD remakes of PS2 games on the PS3...
Then Nintendo followed suit with Gamecube remakes with new controls on the Wii and later Microsoft with things like the HALO remakes...

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

But I am definitely waiting for the HD remake of the GameCube remake of the original Resident Evil (something I'd hoped would happen for years finally IS!). Getting it for PS4 as soon as it hits....that and Resident Evil Revelations 2, which features the return of Claire Redfield.

You know, I really enjoyed it, but I'm good. No interest in replaying it. Maybe five years down the line. Same with GTA V.

Not that I've heard but they are doing a remaster of DmC.
