I played a decent chunk of GTA 5 and I'm starting to get bored. GTA: San Andreas is a lot better.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Can someone tell me why it's worth buying a new console that struggles to hit 1080P 60fps?

I'm not a graphics whore by any stretch of the imagination, but why the hell are they releasing new consoles if they can't even do what PCs have been doing for years and years?

For $500, I better be getting a machine that can bust out 1080p/60fps with a blink of an eye, otherwise why the hell would I not just upgrade a few parts of my PC and have a machine that not only looks better, but has a vastly superior amount of content to play.

I already have a gaming PC, I'm just saying... why exactly do we need new consoles again? It's certainly not for innovation, the games coming out for it are exactly the same stuff from the last 5 years, so what is the point exactly?

I love my Wii U because it brought Nintendo from SD to HD, very large improvement, but PS3 to PS4? Why exactly does this machine exist (that goes for the X1 too)?

My time for FF14 ran out. Not sure I will renew. It was fun for sure and I have minimal complaints overall. It was a nice break from WoW but after awhile I just started missing WoW. It's a solid game, but not one I would drop WoW for and I don't really want to get into playing 2 MMO's at the same time.

Maybe because not everyone has a 1200$ Gaming PC and would rather get a 400 $ console that has a larger variety of games on it then PC.

PC has more games on it than all consoles combined and has 90% of console games on it as it is. You can also build a PC for $500-600 that is as strong or stronger than the PS4. My PC right now that's 2-3 years old can out perform the PS4.

The problem I'm seeing with the new consoles is there's almost no upgrade at all here. You're paying $500 for a console that does nearly the exact same thing your current consoles do, there's no leap, no jump, why are these consoles coming out? They can't even do 1080p/60fps on full games, something that has been standard in tech for many years now.

I'm just having a hard time trying to think of why I'd want a PS4/X1 when it's basically just a PS3/360 packaged with a new casing and hardware that's already outdated and hitting its limitations (the same limitations the PS3/360 has, so what's the point exactly) before it even launches. Combine that with the fact that you can go out right now and build a gaming PC for around the same price that outclasses the PS4/X1 just amplifies their uselessness.

Keep in mind, I'll be picking up either a PS4 or X1 someday down the road when some more exclusives come out that I want to play, I'm just saying that Sony/MS are basically strong arming consumers into buying new hardware that isn't actually going anywhere new, we're going to pay hundreds of dollars for a machine that does the same thing our current machines do with the same limitations our current machines have. It pisses me off that if I want to continue my hobby of playing games on consoles, I need to shell out potentially $500 for a repackaged PS3/360.

Already bored of GTA. Got old real quick. I feel like Rockstar must have paid off a bunch of critics because by no means is this one of the best games of all time.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

LOL I hear the same joke argument every time oh you can build this and that crap and then my friend gets a so called GAMING machine puts one program on it like edius and cant play FFXI running FATEs without lagging while the PS3 next to him did not lag ONCE during the whole game.And theres a difference between garbage PC games and GTA5 that you can't play now on your GAMING machine,when they feel like the game has been over played they release the garbage for PC nubs to play. Oh and keep in mind i have a sick Gaming PC and will be getting the PS 4

PC's are better but Microsoft would rather you buy a xbox.

For the money the PS4 will out preform a gaming rig and TBH if they would let me use a keyboard & mouse to play shooters on consoles I would probably dump my pc in the trash.

They still cant make up for the accuracy of a mouse or utility of a keyboard with game controllers and I doubt they ever will.

Are you sure they wont run 1080? I know a decent gaming PC pisses all over the next gen consoles (performance wise), but I would have expected the next gen to handle 1080 ok.

If what your saying is true I might put off buying a next gen and invest in a new GFX card and a 2650 x 1600 monitor. I reckon over the next few years most PC gaming enthusiasts will be running games at 1600p... kinda makes the 720p look a bit weak.

edit - I should take this over to the console thread, this really isn't what this thread is about.
