    What Made You Buy Your PS4?

    Just wanting to start a little discussion, what made you want to purchase your PS4; if you even own one.

    If you do not own a PS4, what would make you purchase a PS4?


    I purchased mine because I was ready for the 8th generation of consoles, and don't regret it one bit. How about you?

    Wanted to prepare for the inevitable Uncharted sequel. Great fun so far.

    Multiple reasons and it just seemed like everything fell into place at the right time. I really wanted Arkham Knight and Battlefront and was disappointed that they weren't coming out for PS3. So I thought that I'd just deal with it and wait until Christmas to ask for the new system. The week before Arkham Knight came out, GameStop was running a deal where you can trade your old PS3 and 360 for $150 each and I had both systems so I took them and all the games and got about $450 and pre-ordered the Arkham Knight ps4 bundle and now I'm anxiously awaiting Battlefront

    I got mine for a birthday gift from my wife. But, I wanted it because of Infamous Second Son. About 2 weeks before my birthday - Superstore had a no tax event and I price matched an offer from The Source - PS4 console Infamous Second Son and 1 year subscription to PS+ for $510 - which at the time was essentially getting the Infamous game for 5 bucks off and a free 1 year subscription to PS+. But when we got to Superstore they had a promotion buy Infamous Second Son and get either Killzone Shadowfall or Knack. So basically a PS4 2 games, 1 year PS+ for $502 with taxes included which was a savings of $202.95. The reason why it was 502 instead of 510 was because the cashier accidentally took the $8 environmental fee off and she didn't feel like correcting it.

    I don't care what anybody says about Infamous Second Son. I enjoyed it and the graphics are still some of the best for this gen consoles.

    I still don't own a PS4.

    Bloodborne, Dungeon Defenders 2, Uncharted 4 and Dark Souls 3 still aren't enough of a push for me to commit to the current gen. Perhaps when I'm done with my PS3 backlog there'll be more games out that I'm interested in, but for now it's just not a sound investment.

    That's also true. I'm saving for a new car and a new home right now, so unless I get a PS4 as a gift, I wont own one for quite some time.

    I just ordered one off of amazon about an hour ago.

    Mortal Kombat is the kicker for me. I've been wanting to play it for so long and they canceled it on ps3 and it hurt me inside

    Plus, the bundle I found is a pretty good deal if anyone wants to take a look at it. It's Nathan Drake collection with Final Fantasy Type 0 and Assassin's Creed Syndicate. I was waiting for black friday but all of the listings so far are just Nathan Drake collection bundle for $299

    For those interested: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01...ilpage_o00_s00

    You'll be glad you upgraded because Mortal Kombat X is amazing. Uncharted collection is nice and there was no Assassin's Creed game this year for the last gen consoles.

    I think it was a year too early for all the current gen hardware releases. An extra year of engineering and an extra year of launch game development would have been nice, but it is what it is.

    Just started working and could finally afford to buy one myself, and I really really really wanted to play Bloodborne since I had finished (and loved) the previous 3 games in the souls series

    Heard that was a great game! Good luck on your job & on buying your console!
