I want to buy a PS4 now and blame E3 2015

0

I have been a fan of Sony PlayStation consoles for a long time. I remember going to college to play FIFA Street, Pro Evolution Soccer, Black, God of War and many other games on my PlayStation 2 at a gaming cafe near my house. After starting my first real job in 2011, I invested in a PlayStation 3 (PS3) and a TV to play all the Uncharted games I read so much about. In fact, I finished all three Uncharted games in one weekend!

I’ve been eyeing the Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) since its launch in 2013. From its sleek look to its upgraded specs, the PS4 has completely won me over. I’ve been reluctantly putting off the purchase, mainly because the games list at launch was small and my PS3 had a backlog of games.

Now that E3 2015 is here and after seeing Sony’s conference, I don’t think I can wait any longer to buy. I’m sure my wallet (if it could talk) would thank you profusely if you thought you could talk me out of buying one right away. But don’t blame me if my list of reasons convinces you to get a PS4 instead.

E3 2015 Games
Two words: Uncharted 4. I’ve seen two Uncharted 4 gameplay demos revealed by series developer Naughty Dog, and I can’t help but think about experiencing this latest adventure with Nathan Drake and Sally. Additionally, I found the demo for The Last Guardian, with its release shrouded in a mysterious cloud, quite appealing.

There’s also Horizon Zero Dawn, a new IP unveiled at E3. It’s an open-world RPG with giant mech robot dinosaurs and a female lead wielding a bow and arrow. The trailer looked interesting, to say the least. Additionally, there are plenty of third-party games that caught my eye, including No Man’s Sky, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

Most of these games won’t be released until 2016, but that gives me plenty of time to catch up on games I’ve missed playing on PS4. At the top of this list are titles like The Last of Us Remastered, GTA V and Infamous Second Son.

media center
Since I realized that my PS3 is DLNA compatible, I’ve been taking full advantage of it by streaming all of my laptop’s media directly to my TV. It’s so easy to use, I’ve never bought a Chromecast or Smart TV box. Missing out on the media player on the PS4 was a huge disappointment and one of the reasons I hesitated to upgrade. PS4 streaming has been around for a while via Plex and third-party apps, but it hasn’t been as easy as using a PS3.

During E3, Sony officially confirmed that a software update will allow the PS4 to play videos, music and photos from a USB flash drive and via DLNA. I’m glad Sony decided to fix this because it means the PS4 can be my media center just like my PS3.

Games look great on PS4
I recently downloaded a digital copy of Far Cry 4 on my PS3 and the moment I started the game I was shocked by the random texture popups and poor quality textures. In fact, it looked worse than Far Cry 3. This is something to note here from someone who doesn’t really care about graphic fidelity. It doesn’t stop at Far Cry 4, even games like Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Shadow of Mordor looked pretty bad. Games are now designed for newer consoles and developers have to remove key assets and graphical enhancements to make games work on older consoles.

And the games on PS4 are beautiful. I played Infamous Second Son for a while on PS4 and immediately fell in love with its colorful high-definition visuals and steady 60fps frame rates. Batman: Arkham Knight looks and plays well on PS4, as the PC port is a complete mess, as even powerful cards like the Nvidia GTX980 struggle to run it on average settings without dropping framerates. pictures. Another big plus is that the PS4 can play most games in 1080p.

Removable hard drive
Sony recently announced the 1TB edition of the PS4 overseas, and rumor has it that it will take until November (or later) to reach Indian shores. Its price can also be much higher. But this is not really a problem because the PS4 hard drive can be easily replaced and we have a detailed guide on how users can do it.

My PS Plus collection
However, the main reason to upgrade is PlayStation Plus and the huge library of PS4 games I have. Let me explain to you. Since subscribing to PS Plus for Rs. 2250 per annum, I was dependent on the service. It offers great value for money even though the current annual subscription fee is Rs. 3999. You get at least two games every month for each of Sony’s three consoles – PS4, PS3 and PS Vita (Portable). The same account can be used across all devices, so if you have PS3, PS Vita and PS4, you’ll get six or more free games every month.

What makes it even better is that you can download all the games even if you don’t have a system but have a subscription to the service. In other words, as a PS3 player, it was possible for me to “buy” free copies of PS4 games that I would download once I got the console. Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to tie players into a specific ecosystem.

I have collected all free games from this service for PS4. Granted, AAA titles are few and far between, but I’d love to play indie games like Transistor and CounterSpy that I have on my download list. I can’t do that unless I buy a PS4 now, can I?

If you have anything to add or you want to cancel my purchase for your own reasons, please reply in the comments section. Meanwhile, Sony, can we get a PS4 price drop?
