I recently bought the PS4. My first Sony console.

Forums - Gaming Discussion - I recently bought the PS4. My first Sony console.

First of all, those who know me (?) Know that all my life I have been a Nintendo fan (and I will continue to be, of course). Recently I bought the PS4, I had always wanted to try some of its exclusive games (Kindgdom Hearts 1 and 2, God of War 4, Spiderman, Nier automata (Yes, it is also on Xbox but not on Switch, which is my other console), The Last of Us, etc). I will not have much time to play with the PS4 in 1 or 2 months (Hello study, work, Fire Emblem Three Houses and Astral Chain) but I also decided to buy it now so that my brother played Fornite there instead of the Switch (And protect it a little!).

I have to say that having the PS4 has changed my perspective on several things, especially in games that I was going to buy on Switch, I will buy them now on PS4 (mainly for price). Continuing with this, entering the PlayStation Store is amazing, the amount of AAA games at too low prices invites you to buy (Nintendo could learn a bit of this) even if you know you don't have time to play those games at that time. The only thing is that sometimes the store takes a while to load (I don't know if it's just my thing or my internet but then I see my brother playing Apex legends fluently and I wonder what the problem is) and when you enter Looking at the info of a game can be confusing (in that sense I prefer the Nintendo eshop).

I currently have KH 1.5 + 2.5 and Last Of Us Remastered, Overwatch (All Physical), God of War 4 is on the way (I live in Colombia but I bought it on Amazon USA because it is very cheap) and Guilty Gear XrD Rev 2 (One of my most desired games) and SF V Arcade Edition (these last two digital). With the purchase of the SF V, they gave me a theme of Chun Li that is beautiful (Nintendo could also learn a bit of this). Oh and I also downloaded the PSplus games (That Detroit Become Human is a great gift, it also includes Heavy Rain and an art book) and on the Switch I had Horizon Chase Turbo on my wish list, so that saved me . I answer questions. Greetings

Cool! Try FFXV and REVII if you happen to be a fan of those two series.



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

Glad you're enjoying the new platform. You have some nice games to start off with there. And yeah PSN can have some great deals. The best one I ever got was Darksiders Warmastered 2, for 50 cents last summer. lol. It was on the same month the first game was one of the PS+ games.

I see that you are using the PS4 for exclusive content (not available on Switch). I wonder then, if the content resembles something Nintendo-esque will that make you more or less inclined to play it? That is, are you looking for content that is also different from what you usually play? Just curious to know



Guilty Gear is awesome, good choice.

Welcome to the family! You have made some good purchases, can't wait for you to play GOW. If you have money to spend for games, I would suggest you take a look at the greatest hits that are available as there are a bunch of games (some older, some newer) that are worth your time and are relatively cheap.

Welcome to the dark side of the force.




Me personally, I'd grown up with sega and sony consoles.  Today, I've rebought the ones lost to time, so I have all of them.  However, I started with the genesis, and moved up from there, and with PS1, and moved up from there too, however, I did not generally own both at the same time, because one of them would break, and I'd flip to the other side.  Only my 4th sega genesis survived my childhood.

Anyway, I was console gaming until this generation.  I built my first gaming PC... was unsatisfied with it, so the following year, I built another.

There are just some things I cannot go back to.  I can play MGS4 on PS3, no problem.  Start to finish, even if I hadn't touched it for a looong while.  Same goes for something like Mega Man Legends, which I did in one sitting.  However, the PS4 has disappointed on so many levels.  I even got a PS4 pro to add to the collection, and it didn't do it for me.

Uncharted 2, an 3 were fun on PS3, but I couldn't play very much of uncharted 4.  I got bored of spider-man.  Never opened ratchett and clank, and God of War, I played partially.

Part of my issue with the PS4 is how disconnected it feels from the rest of the brand.  On PS3, I can play my entire catalogue of PS1, 2 and 3 games on the same console.  Games I previously owned on PS3, the multiplats, I had to rebuy.  The last of Us came with my PS4, which dulled my experience even further.  I have this new console, and packed with it, is this game I played tons on PS3.  It's like playing sonic 3D blast on sega genesis, and when you get a sega saturn, you get sonic 3D blast... again.  Then there was beyond: two souls, which eventhough I played a lot on PS3, and beat it 11 times, start to finish, I somehow did it again on PS4.  The only other PS4 game I ever finished, was Detroit: Become Human.

I guess I understand.  Not as many people had a PS3.  So for many of those games from there that got PS4 re-releases, they're new, but to me, it just cheapens the console, because I've played them already.  Dead or Alive 5, Guilty Gear Xrd, Blazblue, etc.

But, in 2016, I started gaming on PC, and then, getting multi-plats on console just seemed silly, and for me, it was.  So, today, I'm left with games that don't interest me, because I've played most of them already, or they just feel too similar.  Play through a story, through a closed environment, in most cases shooting, or hacking through enemies.  God of War, Uncharted 4, Spider-Man, they're too similar.  Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, and the other games, were just PS3 games to me.

I'm playing overwatch and tekken 7, on PC, these days.  I bought Tekken on PS4 and PC on release day, but curiosity made me try overwatch on console, just to see what it was like, and playing shooters with a controller isn't something I'm looking forward to doing again.  Recently, I went out of town, and bought mortal kombat 11 on PS4 because I can't take my PC with me, but since I've been home, my PS4 Pro has been in the box, the PS4 is on the shelf with the other consoles, and my PS3 consoles are connected along with my PC.   And then, adding to the fact that I have to pay for PS+.  Not something I'm willing to do when I know I wont play very much.

Glad you're enjoying it though.  To be honest, my Switch gets a little more time than my PS4, but it's due to everything I said above.  Having the exact same games to play on PS4 that I'd played on my PS3, and then finding out how underpowered the consoles were, just really put me off that console.  I'm looking forward to Last of Us 2, though.  And I will be getting that game on PS5, not PS4.

This could've been its own thread..

I would say to play games that are different from those I normally play. My list of current games and future purchases fit that.

Yeah, I had the opportunity to play it with a friend on his PC and the truth is that it was love at first sight. I always wanted to see a port on Switch and I was once tempted to buy a PC to play it, but at the end of the day I decided that the best option (and cheaper) was to play it on PS4.

Thank you. There are several games on my list (The Uncharted saga, some Resident Evil, maybe Horizon Zero Dawn, among others)
