“The Little Engine that Will”
Sony’s newest console was the talk of the town at E3, delivering a one, two knockout punch to the competition.
First, they announced that the system would be able to play used games. Next you wouldn’t have to pay $500.00 for their console.
By Sony announcing that the PS4 would have no restrictions, it ignited a whirl wind that sees no chance of slowing down.
Gamer’s rejoiced then and they are still rejoicing now. Arguably one of the most popular consoles to date, the PS4 is a powerhouse on steroids. I won’t get into specs because chances are if you’re a gamer you have heard of them already.
Stores can’t seem to keep them in stock and people can’t seem to take their minds off it. This was the first console that Sony has charged for online with a service called PS Plus. With this service you are able to play online and get free games along with discounts and beta invitations.
The PS4 was built with developers in mind, as such the interface is much smoother and the system handles tasks swiftly. The PS4 has shown it’s muscle as most multi-platform games are rendered in 1080p, which is not the case for it’s direct competitor the Xbox One. This system has a shape that would remind you of the PS2 bringing back pure nostalgia.
Games like Killzone: Shadow Fall show the graphical prowess of the system and as time goes on I am sure we will see the totality of it’s power come into full use.
Overall, the PS4 is a system that I would recommend as it is cheaper than the Xbox one with more free to play games. The PS4 is easier to look at, box wise and as mentioned, has less of a problem in rendering games in 1080p if that is important to you. On my blog I recommended Xbox One as well because it is up to the consumer which system they choose. Both are good systems with their advantages and disadvantages.
If you are lucky to get your hands on a PS4, take it. You will not regret it. Try before you buy at your local department store, such as Best Buy, Walmart or GameStop!
