Please guys I've never been a fanboy of anything and made the bad decision of getting a ps3 last gen and all my friends bought a 360 and had a ton of fun playing online together.

But this time around I was planning on getting this BUT

>PS4 is cheaper and all sources says its more powerful.

My question is what does this console offer that is so awesome that should warrant my purchase?

I hate Kinect and motion controls
I hate fps/TPS and dudebro games like Gears or Halo or CoD
I hate gimmicks like tv shows and little apps and crap on my consoles I only care about gaming.

So could someone please talk to me gamer to gamer and convince me on which console to buy and why?

You explained that the differentiating factors don't appeal to you. So don't. Get a Ps4. Goodbye.

some PC games that will be ported locked at 30 FPS

Oh, and if you're not the 80% of people alienated so far by the "We don't care about you, go buy a 360" Advertising that their Million Dollar Suits keep saying like morons everytime someone asks them why they're restrictive.

If your friends all go XB1 then you might want to go XB1 or make new friends.

Well since you use the word dudebro, you're obviously not mature enough to understand that you buy a console for games

If online play with friends is so important to you and your friends all get Xbox One...

Also, why do you believe that getting PS3 was a bad decision?

If you don't want that then don't get either.
