Yes everyone will switch...
2013-02-21 15:02:58

2013-02-21 15:05:20
it took you 2:22m to realize you were wrong?
2013-02-21 15:08:29
it's called sarcasm the first post... and the delay was just to give some drama to this thread.

the drama was killing me, thank god it's finally over
2013-02-21 15:14:08
glad to hear that :D
2013-02-21 15:15:19
Man,replying to yourself is kinda bad.

You cant play FPS without a mouse. Consoles will never take over. The biggest games are still played with a mouse
2013-02-21 15:03:00
They could easily import a mouse and a keypad for consoles
2013-02-21 17:04:34
But we don't wanna be playing at 30fps with horrible looking graphics on outdated hardware...
2013-02-21 17:43:25
Didn't really get your point there. Sony could easily develop a keyboard and a mouse for PS4.
2013-02-22 18:03:06
Most console games run at 30fps. Try playing CS at 30 FPS and feel what aiming is like. Like I said, game consoles feature outdated hardware with most games looking not as good as their PC counterparts.
2013-02-22 18:05:35
U havent seen the specs for the ps4 then
2013-02-22 18:38:39
and what's the point?
2013-02-22 18:19:14
nope, let's dope
2013-02-21 15:03:24
Not a chance everyone will switch. PC will always be ahead of consoles, in terms of hardware and thus consoles will become outdated once again and a new console will be made. Neverending cycle :)

Btw. what would the reason be for everyone to switch? You say discuss, but you don't seem to have an opinion yourself.

Well you have to upgrade your pc every two years or so and that costs a lot and if you buy a console it lasts at least for 7-8 years..
2013-02-21 15:07:00
The thing is, people want the best graphics and you will always get those on a PC. Problem for consoles is that in the first couple of years of their life, they might be able to compete with PC, but after that, to achieve the highest quality, a PC is needed.
2013-02-21 15:12:33
You don't have to necessarily update your PC every few years if you make the right choices.

Still getting a PS4 for 400 or whatever, you might as well get a high spec PC which would cost what you would usually pay for a PC but say with the added PS4 price leading to imo, what is a far better investment.
2013-02-21 15:15:21
The hardware in a console is just as obsolete as a good computer after a given time. Difference is you can upgrade your computer, and you have to buy a new console.

I'd rather buy a new graphics card for 200 every three years than a new console for 400.

Just because you can play a game with your console, it doesnt mean it performs well

not a truth. i need to upgrade my computer after 5 years. before dunno june 2012 almost every game was running on my comp on very high/high graphic options. if you know what i worth buying, you dont need to change computer every 2 years.
2013-02-22 18:33:46
never -.-'


like thmzbro said, you cant play competitive fps game without mouse...

and how can u play dota2/lol/sc2 with a ps2 control ? impossible !
2013-02-21 15:08:34
what if you can plug a mouse into a console?I know it will look gay but still -.-
2013-02-21 16:13:22
you can on some games ;)
2013-02-21 16:17:35
Buy a pc then instead? :-D
Cheaper and better.
2013-02-22 18:59:53
Yes everyone will switch...
2013-02-21 15:09:13
You don't really have eSports experience if you don't have a mouse nor keyboard. Just imagine playing Cs, Starcraft or DotA on Playstation. Hilariously boring.
Every new desktop PC is atleast as good as the PS4.
2013-02-21 15:11:05
True! The PS4 probably wont even top a low/mid PC. It's running on an APU based system afaik witch really isn't all that powerful at all.
2013-02-21 15:13:40
Do not compare PC Hardware to Video Game hardware, it's a completely different concept.
2013-02-22 18:12:26
Honestly the PS4 is quite shit. Peeps gonna spend another 400 on outdated hardware gg.
2013-02-21 15:12:50
non steam better no lag better recoil fps rate much better game non steam now
2013-02-21 15:24:33
Mouse > Joystick On Fps ofc
2013-02-21 15:35:00
I have heard you can have a keyboard and mouse for playstation as well..still not sure

yes its true I play some games on ps3 with mouse and keyboard
2013-02-21 17:19:34
Question cause I don't have a ps3, can you play with the mouse and keyboard on all of the games, or just some?
2013-02-21 17:44:29
I have few games but the games that I play it is able to play with keyboard and mouse
2013-02-22 13:16:06
dafuq is that glass shit, I'll break that controller by just laying it carefully on the table
2013-02-21 15:52:08
Lol? You actually thought that this was the ps4? They haven't showed how it looks like, yesterday they only showed the controller.

The pictures in the link he posted, are fake :)
2013-02-21 16:54:39
I couldn't care less
2013-02-21 16:56:05
You cared enough to comment.
2013-02-21 16:57:56
indeed I didn't
2013-02-21 17:01:29
Maybe for you its end of pc gaming.

Sry, sry for insultes.
2013-02-21 15:53:42
There are tons of people on consoles playing fps games.. and on pc bitch please..watch the steam stats dota lol > all fps games

2013-02-21 16:09:17
Those are just steam stats, did you count all the f2p fps games ?
2013-02-21 16:19:25
mouse/keyboard > gamepad, always was and always will be.
console is fun but not competitive and shooters feel shit on console.

and how do you want to properly play RTS games like sc2 on console? not possible with the current generation of gamepads.
hell, even MMOs like WoW where you have 50+ keybinds are not possible to play on console without decreasing game complexity a lot.
2013-02-21 16:15:38
Just dropping in to say: NOPE!
2013-02-21 16:18:39
Consoles are overrated. The only advantage they have is that there are no worries for system requirements.

Sony are going to go out of business by making the ps4, its going to be a huge failure
2013-02-21 16:49:21
XBOX RULES
2013-02-21 16:55:54
Ehm, no there is no glass in the PS4 and neither in the controller. Nice troll..
2013-02-21 16:56:30
lol, u mad?
2013-02-21 17:02:34

2013-02-21 17:05:21
Eee nah.
2013-02-21 17:16:21
Im not changing to consolegaming even what ever happens to those fucking shitty machines!
2013-02-21 17:17:30
It wont, it's just like saying that CSP will beat GO.
2013-02-21 17:19:15
Actually this pretty much nailed it.
2013-02-21 17:42:29
Good job, again someone managed to bring this issue into a thread that has zero to do with it.
2013-02-21 17:49:53
Not a chance
2013-02-21 17:19:18

Inb4 it looks nothing like this. We already seen the controller and it looked like this http://images.pushsquare.com/news/2013/02/which_of..
2013-02-21 17:40:51
I will never ever turn to console.
2013-02-21 17:42:18
this will be a fail for sure
2013-02-21 17:48:56
its not the end because most standard pc's have better hardware than it,and pc gaming in itself is getting bigger and bigger thanks to f2p titles,ps4 looks good ofc,but it will definitely not kill pc.
2013-02-21 18:02:13
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7QhUL8NUK4.. looks real lol
2013-02-21 18:03:38

Well first of all there is no such a thing as "End Of PC Gaming". Even though Playstation's architecture is pretty much identical compared to PC's, there is no reason to rush in conclusions.

To clarify what PC architeture means, think of x86. What x86 is ? Basically it's an instruction set used by developers to create the everyday programs we use, games etc. So, to start with, it will be easier for developers to make their games both PS & PC compatible without changing thousands of code lines.

PlayStation will be an 8-core AMD system with 8GB DDR5 RAM/VRAM and an AMD Radeon GPU. Well it's enough to play any game until now. I think most of you agree. Thing is that PC's have the ability to upgrade themselves, PlayStation 4 ? Won't happen. PC's will always be stronger & faster than any console. But that's not the case here.

Games being developed for a particular set of hardware helps developers to know exactly how it will perform. So in matter of graphics, yeah the PlayStation 4 will have amazing graphics - look at Unreal Engine 4 or the Deep Down trailer (the one with the dragon).

If you ask me what i like most i would definitely say PC. On the other hand a high end PC - lets say capable of playing Crysis 3 using Ultra High settings - costs at least 2.000 euros/dollars. Playstation's 4 price ? More or less 500 dollars. And guess what, it can deliver high end graphics similar to the ones we get to our own PC's.
2013-02-21 18:27:59
You can build a PC with a PS4-like hardware (8-core AMD cpu, 8 gigs ram, 1.8 TFlops GPu - Radeon HD 7850) for about the same money. I've built one about a month ago for my friend.
When you say:
Games being developed for a particular set of hardware helps developers to know exactly how it will perform.
it actually means now that games will be developed for the PC-like components, so it doesn't matter anymore.
2013-02-22 18:30:59
hell no
