@chazore OK so all the big bad ps users on here are putting him down.

 

"The only ones who are accepting OP's opinion are those who do not have PS4 as their only or main platform of choice."

 

Is that any different to this? 

 

"The OP stated their decision to switch platforms and now all the PS users are coming out with reasons to put down"

 

Two sides of the same coin imo but for some reason you think one side is OK but not the other. 

Yeah totally, you want to paint on that canvas, go right ahead, but you're the one with the brush and the paint.

yes actually. One person is pointing out a fact, that yes, there are PS users within this very thread taking jabs at the platform as well as OP's decision. No amount of heavy low gravity spin is going to change that.

Not even the same coin mate. You've played that game before so I wouldn't even try justifying it.

You're definitely right about PS4 OS, they have left it by the wayside. The latest numbered update, 6.0, only had stability improvements, no new features at all. The latest OS update I got on my XB1 added the new avatar system. And we can't forget all of the features that XB1's OS has already that PS4 lacks, achievement tracker, playtime tracker, etc. 

I also agree that Gamepass is a ridiculously good value compared to Sony's comparable streaming service, not only does it cost less, it offers local games instead of laggy cloud games, and it has all 1st party games day 1.

It definitely feels like Sony is getting lazy and overconfident again, just like they did when they let PS2's success go to their head. I worry that they are going to pull a PS3 again when they announce PS5, no crossplay, no backwards compatibility, poor price/performance ratio, a cocky attitude...

Good, my dude. Glad to see you have chosen to follow what you like instead of brand loyalty over years of being in that same ecosystem. Do not be ashamed or peer pressured for liking Xbox. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Some people can't except that. It shouldn't be your problem, it should be their problem.

Just as he's entitled to no longer accept playstation as his main platform users here are also entitled to not accept his decision. Otherwise what's the point of the thread, to be one massive echo chamber? Some people obviously can't accept that. 

Worst part about this comment is if it were anyone else you could almost believe them if they just meant to say they're entitled to disagree, but I think we all know you literally do not accept his decision. It's his decision to make, there's literally nothing else for you to accept LOL.

Anyways, good on you OP. I made the same leap after PS1/PS2. I still buy Playstation consoles, but they are far from my main platform. Your issues are related to the OS and laziness, mine were about online play and the controller.

This is some prime spinning, Kero. Very subtle too.

There is a clear difference between disagreeing and not accepting. You accept it either way cause it already has happened, my dude. Disagreement is just talking about the reasons why. Dear lord.

When i said accept I meant disagree. In Ireland if you're debating with somebody and you say "i can't accept that" you disagree with him. 

 

Of ciyrse6i can accept if he decides to make xbox his main platform. He's entitled to. But I'm entitled to disagree with his reasons for doing so. That's what I meant but I see where the confusion is. 

 

@chazore 

Not everyone is putting him down. Many disagree with him. Don't be so dramatic. I'm sure he has a thick enough skin to handle it.

If they pulled a PS3 they'd be more likely to have full backwards compatibility with ps1/2/3/4, support for every new connective standard, and probably throw in support for memory card transfers or something thoughtful like that, and expect that everyone will see the value in it because it's the successor to the PS4 .

Not everyone is, just the ones who have PS4 as their main platform, as made evident within this thread. Those not so defensive about one person choosing another system have so far been congratulating him or saying that he can go where he wants. 

It's not even being dramatic, it's pointing out that there are folk in here being so overly defensive about one person's choice on moving platform. He has the skin to handle it, but some do not in here, hence the jabs at OP's decision. You can disagree with him all you want, but you can also do that without typing, without talking, without having to take a jab at the console he chose to play on.



                                       

Whatever floats your boat my dude. Personally, I bought a decent PC to compliment my PS4 Pro, and there’s literally zero reason for me to buy another XB1. I’m not sure about your experience with PSN. I’ve never experienced any down time, and PS+ has been been excellent for the most part in the last few years. To each their own though; Sony has only reinforced my desire to stay with PlayStation.

If you hadn't already picked up on it by now, he's very much against wanting to use a PC for nearly anything. He wants consoles to fully replace PC's and handle all their tasks and what not. He's used consoles to pay his bills and what not, while opting as much as possible to use them for daily computing tasks.

Literally the only guy in all the world that forces himself to use a console for what PC's have been doing for decades for daily tasks.

Nothing on this earth will convince him to actually use a PC the way average joe's do.

Did he also push for Sony to make a sequel to the vita? Could be mixing him up with some body else. 

Not just a vita, but a vita with so much smartphone functionality, it's not even funny, complete with running the same OS as the PS4, and running similar architecture to the PS4. He thinks millions of people would pay over $500 for that.

Also, KBG, don't let the door hit you on the way out. You won't be missed. Meanwhile, Sony will continue working on things their userbase actually cares about rather than things like web browser, which while is important to you, I bet less than 1% of PS4 users even knows it has one, or would care if it was removed.

4K HDR videos in store + Gamepass...... that sounds like most of what OP mentions.

Well enjoy, I guess.

This place is already a bit of a mess. Sure, some of the things in the OP even made some of the mods raise eyebrows, but people cannot go on Flaming the OP or Trolling systems. Consider this Warning before proceeding and let's try to remain civil.
