I just got an Xbox One X + extra Xbox One controller myself for $368, but I didn't get it because of exclusives. I got it because the price of gpus(1070's and 1080's in particular) and rams on PCs have skyrocketed to twice or more the price it was early last year, so paying half the price of a gpu for the most powerful console in the market, seems to be a good deal for me.

This way I can play newer games on the One X in 4KHDR resolution, while waiting for the price of gpus to return to more reasonable levels. It can also play enhanced games that can either provide increased resolution of up to 4K or increased performance at 60fps.

I also saved myself $100 having to buy a 4K HDR blu ray player since the console can serve that function. The extra Xbox One controller I now use for my gaming PC.

You can play almost all of those PS3 and PS4 games on your gaming PC via the PSNow gaming service

https://www.playstation.com/en-us/explore/playstationnow/

You just need a good internet plan since all the games are going to be streamed.


Be aware though, their FAQ says you do need a DS4 controller to play PS Now games on PC. Clearly says there's no support for M/KB or Xbox controller.

so make sure you purchase DS4 controller (and the optional wireless adapter), then check out their 7 day trial

if you end up not liking it, the controller is still worth it for PC games

Thanks with more than a 1700 game backlog on PC, I doubt I will have the time to play on PSNow. I just brought it up for the TC.

I already have 2 Xbox 360 and 2 Xbox One controllers that I can use for the PC if needed. All came with the consoles I bought it with and all of which were natively recognized by Windows 10 on my PC.

Thanks for the info though. I will keep it in mind if I ever decide I will want to try the PSNow service in the future.

I'd think with that list Spiderman would be on there. But even that list alone is a decent size and enough to be worth getting the console for.

I agree the trailer for PS4 Spiderman is one of the best I have ever seen, I am not 100% going to buy that game but if the reviews back up how good that game looks I will lay down my money to get that game quickly. The studio behind it is also very strong, so my hopes are pretty damn high.

If you have the coin and are not budgeting then go for it.

I'm considering one myself just for persona 5, but for one game, not worth it in my eyes.

i'm thinking about getting a used PS4 and a used copy of God of War 4 when i move.

depends how much i can get them for. Was thinking about Horizon as well but f*** aiming with a controller

If i can get Youtube, Netflix and Plex running on it i MIGHT replace my HTPC with it

if you bought a ps4 for exclusives not named bloodborne then you’re a casual

If you buy it just for Persona 5, buying a PS3 + Persona 5 is the cheaper option. Pretty much the same game except it's not 1080p

IVe had mine for around 3 years now I don’t think I’ve really even played it in the last 7 months really. I’ve only turned it on to use as a blu Ray player.

I’m just to backlogged on pc to really get around to playing it and I have some games like blood Bourne and others that I haven’t even played yet.

I got a switch as well 7 weeks ago and beat Zelda and never even got around to playing Xenoblade 2 yet. I think I’m just doin to sell it it’s just to hard now a days especially with the backlog u build on pc.

I’m probably just going to skip the ps5.
