just wait and see the differences between the current and next gen versions. then decide. if the differences are big (loading time, visuals, content) then maybe its better to buy a PS4. if they are small, then maybe its better to just stay on current gen for a while. just my advice

Yeah I'll probably take your advice there, it's not like there is any rush to get a PS4 unless the next gen version of current gen games are a lot better.

yeah im having the same problem. should i get the PS3 versions of these games or wait until the PS4? or maybe PC? 

if the current gen of watch dogs is like that trailer then fuck no ill be waiting to get it on PS4 or pc. if destiny has loading screens all over the place or some content is taken out again, fuck that its on PS4. but if they are just weaker visually, ill just get it on PS3. thats why i am getting GTA on ps3 even if they announce a next gen version, because the game will be the same on both consoles and its built for the PS360. if they port it to next gen good, but it wont really effect the PS3 version in any way



don't buy a console at launch, wait for the library to get a little bit more stacked up



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

Wait until all the next gen specs and release dates are final, and then make your chose based on that. If everything stays the same, I'd look into the PS4.



Buy a Vita pls do it for Sony

Just kidding buy the Last of Us

Id say stick to what u currently have since u can already get most of the games there. Wait til next holiday once PS4 has a bigger library and u can probably find some nice deals next christmas.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Stay with the current gen consoles and wait at least another E3 before considering buying a new one.



It depends on what type of gamer you are, if you are the type that consumes dozens of games per year or just a handful.

If you're really a hardcore gamer who beats dozens of games per year you should stay in current gen and experience all the great PS3 games that are still to come up (GTA5, Castlevania 2, Beyond, Dark Souls II in addition to the cross-gen titles like AC4, BF4 and so on). Then when you have gained enough money to jump into PS4 you will have access to a much larger library of next gen titles to churn through.

But if you typically only play a few games per year you can afford to miss the upcoming current gen games and instead jump into next gen early, since you wouldn't have ever finished many of them anyway.

Myself I'm kinda in the middle. In theory, I imagine I want to experience all the good games that are coming out, 20-25 games per year, but in practice I realize it's impossible and I constantly have to skip titles. That's why I have decided to be more selective with current gen games and jump into next gen early, so I don't ever again get an overwhelming backlog of games I will never be able to complete.



GTA V def



it's up to you but since most games on ps4 are also on ps3, buying just the games is a safer choice. you could also buy just a game or two this year and pick up a ps4 next year when it might be worth the money.
