    The dualshock has always been good for small girly hands.

    I liked the DS4 and it is far better than DS1, DS2 or DS3 but yeah still pretty small. I like something that fills my hands, like.. GameCube, Xbox or Wii U (WUPC) controllers.

    And yes, even the humongous Original Xbox controller.

    Actually my hands are far from small and girly, the distance from the bottom of my right hand to the top of my middle finger is 20cm,
    it's width is 22.8cm, so it's actually a big hand. The dualshock 4 is a lot more comfortable than the previous ones, or at least it is for me.

    Ps4 has all the future exclusives which would sway me towards a console.

    Sad because I like the xbox one controller.


    If you don't have a gaming PC, get a PS4.
    If you have a gaming PC, consider a Wii U or wait.

    I've just voted now for PS4 but until it gets a proper library of games it's not worth it, imo.

    What the hell happened to Sony? PS3 is filled with plenty of awesome exclusives yet PS4 is dry as fuck when it comes to it. :-/

    You mean the PS3 that had no gaems for like 2 years after its release or more and FINALLY started getting good stuff years into its release? You must be reeally young to not remember the "PS3 has no gaems" joke that the WiiU has now inherited.
    Hell i'm pretty sure PS2 was the same but i'm not sure since I only got one waay late.

    PS4 isn't doing too bad though. Xbone has...Master Chief Collection (which frankly is causing me to lean towards it but hey), PS4 has a fair few fun titles like FF Type.0, Samurai Warriors, and some other crap I can't think of off the top of my head. My friend has both and he makes the PS4 just seem waay more appealing. Both do still kinda suck though.

    Sony are very very slow starters. PS3 first 3 years was utter balls. 360 dominated them and had all the best exclusives. Sadly MS couldn't hold onto them (Bioshock, Mass Effect). If they had, the XBOX brand probably would have exploded since they were genuine system sellers which have went onto become the most popular multiplats.

    You mean after two years, the PS3 finally started lining up more notable releases. I didn't even get a PS3 until about 2011, and that was about the point where I felt it was worth buying. That's not to say the PS4 is magically different since I bought it already, but rather, I just wanted to keep up with this gen. Regardless, the PS4 is about 1.5 years old. The fact that you're sitting there whining that it doesn't have 20 AAA exclusive titles is both hilarious and sad. I get we were all a bit spoiled by how long last gen was and it may have skewed perspective on how long it took systems to build respectable libraries, but it's like you were expecting this gen to ignite with as many exclusives as it took the PS3 eight years to gather.

    It's rolling along about the same.
    Do you console peasants still care? Honestly I thought you were used to not having games to play on newer current gen consoles.
    About 2 years in the PS3 STARTED getting more and more good games. It wasn't until much later it actually had a library of games worth giving a shit about. Granted Valkyria Chronicles came out in 2008 and that's still the greatest game of all time, so technically I guess it did have the best library of games in 2008...because of that one title.
    It's not surprising. Good games take time, and devs probably wouldn't have been developing for the PS4 before or right at release. At least, not many. They all finished up their last gen projects and are likely all now developing for current gen, meaning pretty soon we should start seeing more and more good games. Just like last gen.

    PS3 during its early years wasn't as bad as you make it sound, for me there were some really fun games such as; MotorStorm, Geni: Days of the Blade, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Killzone 2, Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit (also on 360), Heavenly Sword, Ridge Racer 7 and Virtua Fighter 5 (also on 360/PC).

    So yeah, that wraps it up for PS3. *sigh* Just have to be patient until 2016-17 when PS4 actually builds up to have a decent library of games.

    That sounds pretty shit to me.


    Uncharted Drake's Fortune is one of the worst games I've EVER played. The jump they made to Uncharted 2 is HUGE. Screen tearing, frame rate drops, poor level design, the worst platforming known to man for a AAA game, clunkiness, poor enemy design, a shitty plot... man that game had it all.


    IMO,

    if you have a gaming PC, buy Wii U > PS4 > XBOX One in that order.
    if you don't have a gaming pc, buy a gaming PC > PS4 > wii U > Xbox one in that order.



    The sad truth is early adopters are just impatient in terms of buying a console with a limited library but they end up being the most patient as they wait for a few games to trickle down. Other people who invest 2-3 years into a consoles cycle don't have to wait around so much.


    If you have a gaming PC, then a Wii U will provide you with the following games which you cannot get on your platform:

    Bayonetta 1
    Bayonetta 2
    Super Mario 3D World
    Super Smash Bros
    Mario Kart 8
    Mario Party
    Wii Party U
    Zombii U
    Wonderful 101
    New Super Mario Bros
    Pikmin 3
    Wind Waker HD
    Lego City Undercover
    Nintendoland



    The PS4 will currently offer a PC Gamer exclusive content in the form of:

    Infamous
    Bloodborne
    The Order
    TLOU Remastered
    FFX Remastered
    FF Type 0 HD
    LBP





    I'd say the Wii U selection of games is CURRENTLY better and it fills a hole PC gaming really struggles with: local multiplayer and party games. There are also no real PC equivalents for Mario, Super Smash Bros, MK8, and games which offer unique experiences using the gamepad such as Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3. The PS4's currently exclusive library however has very obvious PC and third party equivalents (apart from TLOU and LBP IMO).

    The counterargument for someone who has a gaming PC is Dolphin can satiate your Nintendo needs through emulating the old Wii titles at 1080p resolution or even high and supersampling them down. Thats a very valid point which has seen myself complete Super Mario Galaxy in HD rather than start Super Mario 3D World.

    If its a straight up contest versus the PS4 and Wii U with no gaming PCs taken into account.. I think at this point in time the PS4 now wins. With the likes of Witcher 3, Dragon Age inquisition, Bloodborne and the inclusion of huge third party support... I find it hard to really defend the Wii U as a standalone purchase. Its more like the perfect additional console given the lack of fun local multiplayer games and party games on other platforms.


    I'm not trying to trash the PS4 btw. I will buy one and I think its lifespan and exclusive library will better the Wii U eventually. The third party games however just steamroll the Wii U as they offer very few equivalents to the big hitting blockbuster RPGs.
