PS3, out of every console proved to be my favorite generation, a big part of that was PS exclusives. The same way some guys are just drawn to Nintendo exclusives, I'm the same way with Sony.

I've owned one X-Box, the original, and it just did nothing for me. I remember playing Half-Life 2 on it, and questioning why I was playing a heavily watered down version of it, when my PC already had it. At the time I played FPS game on PC, and just didn't see the point.

This is how I look at it. PlayStation, and Nintendo exclusives you typically can't get anywhere else (outside of PC emulation). PC gaming is something I enjoy as well. X-Box exclusives tend to go on PC as well. Also since I've slowly gotten out of FPS's, X-Box exclusives don't do it for me. Halo, Gears, and Forza just aren't my thing. Only 2 X-Box exclusives really tempted me, Mass Effect, and Alan Wake, one of which stopped being an exclusive.

I have NP with the brand, or others liking it, it's just not my thing. I still want it healthy though, as competition is good. I liked Sega a lot too, and hated seeing it go under. In fact, as a kid I was definitely a Sega Genesis over SNES kid. It wasn't until FFVII on PS1 that I got into RPG's. Looking back with my current taste I probably favor the RPG's on SNES more now.
I'm not particularly brand loyal. When it comes to multi-media features, the X1 ( especially the S model ) has the PS4 beat hands down.

which is ironic, because the PS3 was such a fantastic all-in-one multi-media machine that I ended up using it more than my 360, despite owning a 360 first.

However, when it comes to games and game variety, there's no question the PS4 has the X1 beat.

And a game like Persona 5 just reminded me how much I like the "old school" turn-based RPGs. In addition to the Japanese-anime style of the game.

and those are 2 things that you don't find on the X1.

I'm interested to see what the Scorpio has to bring. but if RPGs and other Japanese style games keep coming out for the PS4, and now the Switch, it's going to be hard to justify the higher price of the Scorpio, regardless of its extra power.

The people willing to rebuy a console for $600 for a 5-10 FPS boost, and better lighting aren't as numerous as people who will go for the cheaper model. If specs were all console owners cared for, the Switch wouldn't be selling as well as it is.

IMO, I see it going like this. Scorpio sees a month, or two of good sales causing XB1 to outsell the PS4, at least in the US. The net goes crazy saying Microsoft will win this gen. Enthusiasm settles down as those willing to pay double the price for an XB1 will have gotten their unit. Sony counters with a Pro price drop, things go back to normal. Meanwhile Nintendo happily keeps chugging along at it's own pace.
Agree I see Scorpio having a slight short lived boost just because it is the new thing but with the system having no games just like xbox, xbox 360 and xbox one I dont see Scorpio sales lasting. With Ps4 most likely having the slim dropped down to 250-200 and with Pro being most likely dropped to 350-300 around the time Scorpio comes out and with all the games ps4 has coming out this year or in the next year such has Spider-Man, TLOU 2, days gone etc Sony will continue to be in great shape and dosnt really look at slowing down any time soon.

Yes competition is always a good thing its just xbox sucks they don't make good games where Sony gen after gen makes a lot of good/great games so I trust them going forward to continue to do that just like Disney makes a lot of great animated movies so they have my trust. Its not some crazy fanboy thing either. Just because I like something dosnt mean I will not complain about some stuff such has I also like Nintendo games and systems a lot but yet I thought the wii was crap or how I love star wars but it didn't stop me from hatting star wars episode 1 or 2. I judge ever thing on its own. The only thing that a previes game, movie, system etc does is create or take away hype from the next one for me but the previes one is going to have zero impact on if I like the next one or not.

  • Prey, along with plenty others, grace the stage.
  • Every week, new games launch on PlayStation consoles, be it Vita, PS4 or even PS3 still. This week, Prey finally hits shelves after years of hype. Following that, we've also got the first episode of Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy. There are plenty more listed below, check it out:
  • ACA NeoGeo Last Resort

    PS4 — Digital (Out 5/1)

    Last Resort is a shoot 'em up from SNK that was originally launched in 1992. Using lasers, homing shots and grenades in this old school classic to win the war between robots and humanity. Just like playing on the Neo Geo.
    The Caligula Effect

    PS Vita - Digital (Out 5/1)

    The Caligula Effect is a Vita title from a Persona veteran writer Tadashi Satomi and published by Atlus. It takes place inside a digital prison filled with brainwashed high school students. With a custom made "Imagination Chain" battle system that shows what a move will do before the player actually does it.
    Dreamfall Chapters

    PS4 — Digital (Out 5/5)

    Set in two parallel worlds: One is a grim cyberpunk version of our future, while the other is a magical fantasy realm. Dreamfall Chapters follows two different heroes across both worlds to save the fabric of reality itself.
    The Dreamfall series is a point-and-click adventure.
    Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series

    PS4 — Retail (Out 5/1)

    Guardians of the Galaxy releases in theaters very soon. While the game is unrelated to the movie, the release time is no coincidence. For a stand-alone story of the universe's most unlikely heroes, grab Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series and buckle into your spacecraft.
    Prey

    PS4 — Digital, Retail (Out 5/5)

    Prey is a highly anticipated return to a beloved series. In Prey, you're the subject of an experiment... Of course, things go wrong and you must use your wits, weapons and strange, newfound abilities to survive the horrific aliens.
    That's our list of games we're excited for this week. For a full list of PlayStation releases, check out the PlayStation Blog.
