The new PS4 is sleek, fast and has sold over 10 million units in 2014. This number is set to increase as more exciting games are released. The graphics are breathtaking and the DualShock controllers are a pleasure to handle.
Many gamers around the globe are wondering if they should buy a PS4 or not. Is it really better than a PS3. After all, the PS4 does cost a sizeable chunk of change.
There are a few points that one should consider. For starters, the PS4 has some music limitations. You can’t play audio discs, CD’s or MP3s. That can be a real downer to people who use the PS3 to play music. You might want to hold on to your PS3 if you wish to play music.
If you need the PlayStation to play movies, videos stored on external hard drives or stream files wirelessly, the PS3 is the better choice.
The PS4 seems to be focused on gaming. As far as gaming is concerned, it is the superior console. It loads faster and the graphics are second to none. All hope is not lost. You still can watch Netflix with your PS4.
The question of whether you should invest in the PS4 will depend on your gaming appetite. Are you a hardcore gamer? Are in this for the long haul? If you are, the PS4 has your name all over it. It is the future of video games. Millions of dollars are being spent to develop games for the PS4.
This should translate into better games with never before seen features. The PS3 belongs to another era as far as gaming is concerned. The PS4 has a more powerful CPU and higher RAM capacity. The PS3 only has one core processor and is a little noisier than the PS4.
The DualShock 4 controller is also far superior than the DualShock 3 controller. Many users have said that the new controller is just awesome which could explain why it is one of the bestselling items from the PlayStation range of products.
In terms of games, currently PS3 has a wider selection but this is due to the fact that it has been around so much longer. Since the PS4 does not have backwards compatibility, the games for the PS4 console will need to be created from scratch. It will take some time. However, in the long run, there will definitely be more than enough games for PlayStation 4 consoles.
After comparing both the PS3 and PS4, the final question you need to ask yourself is, what do you want from your PlayStation set? Do you want a console that plays movies, videos and music with the option for occasional game play? Or are you a hardcore gamer who just needs a state of the art gaming rig that is ahead of its time?
If you’re the former, stick with your PS3.
If you’re a gamer and your world revolves around the latest gaming technology, the PS4 is waiting for you. It has everything you could need to take your gaming to the next level and beyond. The PS4 is ahead of its peers at the moment and looks poised to stay that way for some time to come.
