Watchdogs is the one game that has me buzzing right now.

And the streaming to Vita is the one feature that has me buzzing. That one is pretty big for me. That + PS+ will be why I switch from Xbox to PS this generation. If I already own a Vita and already have a PS+ account, a PS4 over an Xbox One is the logical thing to do.

But ... there need to be games.

How can anyone get excited over a game, just by watching cutscenes? That's the worst part of a game. Hell, even a 3 minute shot of the main menu is more interesting to look at.

Bias note: I played 20 minutes of one of the Batman games (Arkham something), and was bored. It was like Deadpool, without the irony.

I look at that and immediately think, "When is it coming to PC?"

As much as I want to become interested in a new console, I just can't. I have no desire to play online with anyone anymore so that crosses XboxLIVE and PS+ off the list. I'm not sure if their multimedia services on PS4 (like Netflix and Amazon Instant Video) are behind the PS+ wall but I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before that happens -- that was the reason I abandoned XBL Gold. Remote play with Vita looks nice but not enough to make me bite at this point. And, again, it is something that will eventually be available through services like NVidia Shield for the PC (if NVidia will ever get off their asses and optimize their streaming software, that is).

Until something like a new God of War title (a GOOD one) or The Last Guardian emerges, I have no plans to jump back into the console fray.

The only thing behind a pay wall on the ps4 is the online multiplayer, by the by.

But really, with PS+, there's no reason not to have it in the first place.

That's good. I just hope it never changes. There used to be a time when I never dreamed that Sony would have a paid subscription service but here it is. I just hope that they never decide to put everything behind that pay wall to force people into PS+. Xbox360 and XB1 are basically useless without their LIVE Gold subscriptions and that's a bunch of bullshit.

Sony never changed its policy for the life of the PS3 (even today, multiplayer via PSN is still free for PS3 players), and there's no reason to suspect they would do any differently for the PS4 (they made it very clear multiplayer will cost extra this time, and that's it). Sony has always been very cool about shit like this.

The only legitimate complaint anyone had with the PS3 (other than huge mandatory patches/updates), was the removal of Linux. Despite all the shouting, I don't think anyone really cared about this change.

The machine is still definitely in its infancy, but it's slowly starting to pick up in terms of lower-key downloadable titles. You can load up on a couple free PS4 titles if you have PS+ and "buy" them from the online store (I had four fresh games to fuck around with before I even bought the system) and Sony's been trying to make sure most of the games ported from older system will be available to you for free on the PS4.

The media center on the PS3 is definitely better at the moment, but Sony promises to fix a bunch of shit through patching. You can't even stream video from external hard drives to the PS4 at all and the Blu-Ray player is really finicky - both to be fixed TBD.

Really, is it ever a great idea to buy a console within a year or so of launch? I've never heard good things. This is the first time I've bought a console a year within launch. I mean, I'm in love with the system, but it really has some growing up to do.

All that said, Infamous: Second Son is the most gorgeous game I'v ever played, holy fucking shit.

WE'VE HAD THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT THE N64 BEFORE.

I think.

I'm pretty sure we have.

(Did they all have good first years? Totally don't remember)

(Also, that was 20 years ago)

The worst case of buying a console at launch was my best friend in middle school buying an Atari Jaguar day of release.

We blew that fucker up with M-80s a year after release.

I remember the Aliens game for Jaguar. And the controller that looked like a phone. Christ.

Oh god, they're doing a flash sale and I'm seriously considering buying the PS4 upgraded Tomb Raider for $30.

Hmmm, $8 on Steam, or $400 for a PS4.

BTW, it is fun, but gets boring very fast. Gang Beasts is a sillier (thus better) version of this game.

I'm not going to take netting a copy of Killzone: Shadowfall off of Amazon for $20 as a warning sign of mediocrity, I will only think of pretty Nextgen Graphics at dirt-cheap prices.

Capturing a sort of choppy Twitch stream and then uploading it to Youtube might not be the best idea, but man those fire effects sure are pretty.

Also with that and The Evil Within, I'm kind of digging games going just straight-up 2.35.

I hate stealth gaming so much, but goddamn it's hard to resist finally picking up The Last of Us on PS4.

Adding a Photo Mode where you can add filters, borders, etc. is God's gift to PS4 games.

The Last of Us was amazing, but not for the reasons everyone says. Sure, the story was fine, but it wasn't quite the Citizen Kane everyone made it out to be. It was great because it was a genuinely good GAME. I like stealth games, and this was the best one I'd played since Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.

Microsoft locked the Nextgen Tomb Raider game for 2015, which is a genuine bummer.

But Rime sure looks pretty!

Also: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. I've been looking forward to it ever since they made "Weird Fiction" a selling point.

Tearaway was a fucking jaw-dropper on the Vita, and I'll totally upgrade.

Because paying console exclusives is some new and devious thing that has never happened before, you know?

I was at Macworld in 1996, when Apple announced an upcoming exclusive game for Apple computers...Halo.

And then Microsoft immediately bought Bungie (a company, that - up to that point - had proven the Mac platform to be an amazing gaming platform).

So, yeah, this has been going on for a very long time.

That was back when it was going to be a sci-fi Myth-like RTS (Myth was AWESOME), and then a third-person action game.

I was a big fan of Myth and Marathon, and was briefly sad at the idea that this awesome new game from them would disappear, but Halo ended up being one of the best things to ever happen to consoles. Glad that buyout took place.

And it's not like Microsoft is alone in gunning for third-party exclusives. It's an old practice that goes back to the beginning of home consoles.

Going with the Xbox over the PS2 and 360 over PS3 meant I missed out on some great Metal Gear games, which disappointed me, but that's just how it goes.

I'm not surprised they're going nuts, considering the XBox One version of Tomb Raider would dip into the 20FPS range and didn't run in full 1080p, but I'm guessing the outcry has more to do with Reddit just being Reddit.

Like I said, I'm just kind of bummed. The reboot was the first Tomb Raider game I played and was delighted with it, I was looking forward to picking it up. My guess is they'll wait a year and do the whole DEFINITIVE EDITION across all platforms.

Besides: the reboot was just Lady Uncharted anyway, and Uncharted 4's comin'.

I was interested in the reboot thanks to the prior two being so damn good, but when I read it was heavy on the shooting and light on the puzzles and exploration I lost interest.

I already have Uncharted for that.
