PS4

Postby exolstice » Fri Jun 06, 2014 8:36 am

Anyone buy one yet? And if so, how do you like it?

We got a WiiU a few months back. It didn't get much action until Mario Kart 8 came out a week ago. Best Mario Kart ever? Yes.

Haven't gotten one yet. Plan to eventually, but I see no need to rush out to get one at the moment. Not to mention I can't afford it right now anyway. Seriously looking into an Xbox One though, because the more I watch tourney footage of Killer Instinct the more I want to play. Currently working on a project, and if I can lock it down I should have enough profits to pick one up.

Same here, neither of the next gen consoles have any compelling enough games for me to rush out and buy one.

I really want to play Killer Instinct, but I get the feeling I'll end up with a PS4. Not sure when, but eventually.

I'm building a PC, my first in at least 10 years ( although I do have a crappy laptop), which will cost more than both the PS4 and Xbox One combined.

Kinect version, or sans?

Still hooked on GTA Online. I'll probably pick up a PS4 in the next 2 years.

I tried playing GTA online, but the sound of pre-pubescent voices yelling obsceneties was just too much to bear.

GTA Online got boring as soon as I completed all of the survival missions.

Here's what I'm getting in lieu of a PS4 (which I may still get at some point down the line as they have a tendency to be thrown in for free with Sorny TVs and we're in the market for a new TV):

I'd love to build something like that, but it'd cost close to $4k here, and I just can't swing that.

Holy rubbish, isn't Australia closer to China, why the huge markup?

No reason. Australia stupidly marks up everything for no reason at all. I remember when I first walked into an EB Games here and noticed a new game was $99 I was amazed. I assumed it was because of some weird import thing, but then when I noticed that a digital copy of a game on the AU PSN store was the same price I realized it was just Australian bullshit. There's a businessman here that owns several chains (one being an electronics chain) that's always in the news crying that Australians aren't supporting the economy, and are, instead, opting to buy online from overseas. Maybe if his shitty stores didn't mark up prices by 110% more people would buy locally. He's pushing to get a tax pushed through on all online purchases from overseas.

That's like in Canada, when our dollar is weak (compared to the US), prices shoot up the same day. If our dollar is strong (compared to the US), it takes months (or never) for the prices to drop back down.

I don't drive, but gas prices are even more ridiculous. Price of a barrel goes up and the price posted at gas stations goes up a few minutes later (a few hours if we're lucky). If the price of the barrel drops, the price at the station goes up because: "it's oil that was purchased months ago when the prices were higher."

Anyway, I never buy games when they first come out anymore, as I've noticed most games drop to at least 50% of their original price within 6 months. Often I can get the Collector's Editions on clearance for less than the price of the standalone game... and then never play it.

I was told that I could get an airbrush or a console for Christmas. On one hand, I need an airbrush, because my other two died (they were cheap), and I've had my eye on an Iwata anyway. On the other hand, a console would give me more "round-the-clock" entertainment.

You don't already own a console?

Nah. I still have it. By console I meant a PS4 or XBox One.
