Detailed Playstation 4 Review,
This review is from: Sony PlayStation 4 500GB Console (Black) (Console)
This review is coming from a an owner of both the ps4 and xbox one, I bought my PS4 from Asda.
** Aesthetics **
The PS4 is beautiful, and looks futuristic all over like it should coming from sony, its much smaller that the xbox one which I was expecting but I did not realise just how small it actually was until seeing it first hand, I like the look of both consoles (xbox & playstation) but you can really tell who it was that conceptualised and manufactured the console, whilst sony the Japanese masterminds created something striking and futuristic, Microsoft went for the simplistic look which is what they have been doing for the past few years with windows 8, surface etc.
The Controller is a HUGE improvement, the biggest thing the kept me away from the ps3 was the controller, it felt cheap, uncomfortable and not fun to use, But now this new controller feels great and overall much more fun to use and get used to. I have not yet used the touchpad but im sure it will soon get implemented into games.
** Performance **
So far i have played Killzone and Battlefield on the console and I must say im truly impressed, Killzone looks absolutely beautiful on the console, Which makes me really excited to what is to come in the next few years, Also being a PC gamer graphics are very important to me, Playing on the PS4 was nothing short of a great experience.
The console itself is quite, and I have not yet noticed any freezing, a few people have reported freezing and disc drive noises, Hopefully i do not experience that but this is something you should keep in mind when buying version one / first batch of consoles.
** Summary **
The PS4 is a revolutionary console, with amazing graphics, its more powerful than ever and overall something refreshing but should you buy this over the xbox one? Well that really depends, for example the Xbox one has some great exclusives like forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Titan fall, halo etc, but so does the PS4, The argument of "Free Online" cannot be made anymore because the playstation now requires a playstation plus subscription to play online. The PS4 is a little bit more powerful and is gaming orientated whilst the xbox one is entertainment system oriented. There are some issues and bugs out there that you should be aware of and I would 100% recommend waiting a few months before buying your system but this new generation of consoles is very promising and you could not go wrong with either a ps4 or xbox one at the end of the day its about personal preference and what system your friends are on.
