> No backwards compatibility
> Have to pay for the right to use your own Internet to play multiplayer
> Over 100$ more expensive than Wii U after taxes

There's really no reason unless you're a blind fanboy who buys for brand loyalty (and worshiping a big corporation is just sad).

What about you? Are you happy with just your Wii U?

Not right off the bat, but maybe later on.

Yes, if PS3 is anything to go on

- More games thanks to better third party support
-The Exclusives are more varied and fits me better than what Nintendo offers at the moment.
- More creative games than compared to nintendo such as Heavy Rain, journey, The Unfinished Swan, Flower, Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet. Looking forward to Beyond 2 souls, puppeteer & Rain. Can't wait to see that they bring to PS4.
- Never needed BC, you just use the older consoles.
-Ain't gonna pay for PS+ for online, will be paying for the monthly PS3, PVita & PS4 games.
-Considering the power of the hardware I'd say PS4 seem to give you more bang for the buck than what the Wii U does.

Now if Wii U is worth a purchase to compliment my PS4, that's another question, not looking that good right now, but maybe in 2015-2016 who knows?

i could see myself getting a PS4 in 2015. Until then its Wii U, PS3 and 360

Honestly......all the DRM and $500 pricetags aside.........the Xbox 1 has games i really want to play :(

im not excited for Killzone or inFAMOUS. None of the PS4 games really impressed me graphically either.

At least that xbox game Ryse looks like something u can't do on current gen.

Project Spark impressed me alot too.

for me it boils down to this:

Ryse
Project Spark
Dead Rising 3
TitanFall
Killer Instinct
Forza 5

inFAMOUS
Killzone
The Order
GT 6

Super Mario 3D World
Mario Kart 8
Super Smash Bros Wii U
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
X

I was on the fence about the PS4, but Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy XV, and inFAMOUS: Second Son sold it for me.

Posting crap like this just makes the trolls feel more justified. I don't care whether people buy a PS4 -- it looks like a decent system but I am content with my PC and Wii U.
I am Lord Bowser, King of the Koopas! Bwahaha..

I'm fine with PS3 and Wii U. There's a ton of games i have yet to even play. There won't be a dire need to own a PS4 for quite a while. The thing doesn't even come out until late this year and even then it'll be in launch mode. Not getting one until i see something amazing that i can't live without.

inFAMOUS looks pretty.

but if they can make Watchdogs looks good on PS3.....they certainly can make inFAMOUS.

the reason its only on PS4....is to coax ppl into adopting their next-gen hardware. Not because PS3 is incapable of running it.

not for a year or 2, there will be a huge drought on Ps4 and xbox one for awhile, its the same as any new console, I`ll stick with the Wii U.
