This is what I needed. I've flip flopped between an Xbox One and PS4 for months.

PS4: I own a Vita, it's cheaper, it's more powerful

Xbox One: I actually liked Kinect, I already have a Gold subscription, I like the games more

I'm probably gonna end up with both. Certain advantages for each (install speed, etc.) don't matter to me in the least. Anyway, if you have PS4 answers, I got PS4 questions. Some are in the OP but I'll ask again, anyway.

-PS4 web browser: Is is a HUGE improvement over the PS3 because the PS3 browser is kinda unusable for me right now.
-Can I copy video/music/pics from an HDD to the PS4 and play them from that? I do that with my PS3 a lot.
-Do digital games like Flower roll over to the PS4 or is that a different purchase completely?
-How good is the Vita Remote Play? Hopefully better than the PS3. I want to play Tomb Raider in different rooms of the house.
-Does it ever overheat or any other technical issues? Freezing, resets, disconnects

- Web browser is much better than ps3's browser. And a minor thing such as pressing R2 to enter works perfectly on the ps4.

- NO

- Yes. I purchased Flower, Sound Shapes, Escape Plan on my ps3 years ago and they all rolled over FREE to my ps4.

- Remote play is great in the home. With a strong enough router, you can even go outside and use remote play. I work in manhattan and I use it via starbucks allot (which has free wi-fi) and also via wi-fi at the office. I works great. If your internet speed is around 15/5 Mbps, you should be fine. The one thing I do hate though is the pre-set button config on Need For Speed Rivals via remote play on the Vita. It needs custom settings option to be released. 

- Yes. I purchased Flower, Sound Shapes, Escape Plan on my ps3 years ago and they all rolled over FREE to my ps4.

How did you do that? I knew I missed something, I bought critter crunch, dead nation, FF7, FF8, Super Stardust and a few others a while back.

Only a few games are cross-buy, like the three he mentioned. What this means is that you get the PS4 version for free (with updated graphics!) if you bought the PS3 version. None of the ones you mentioned are cross-buy, unfortunately, probably mostly because there is no PS4 version for those yet (and in FF's case: because Square Enix love money).

So there's still nothing about photos and videos? I really miss that.

Other question : it seems I can't modify my avatar from the PS4, is that normal?

For now it is, you will have to use the ps3 for that. It sucks, I know lol.


This is NOT TRUE.
