Well, it's official.

tl;dr .. some questions at the bottom

My name's Nathan. After the sony press conference at E3, I went to sleep and immediately went to Eb Games when I woke up. Once there, I did what I never thought I would do: I ordered a PS4. I've been an Xbox fanboy since 2005. Last console generation I recieved my Xbox 360 close to launch to due low supplies, but regardless I fell in love right away. Spending countless hours obtaining 50,000 gamerscore within the first year, as well as enjoying almost every exclusive pumped out for the system.


But here I am today; I have officially switched sides. Xbox has a great system, do not get me wrong. But sketchy privacy terms, as well as the hazy DRM idea turned me off. Halo sucks now. Gears is over (well CliffyB left.. so gears is over). Fable sucks now. Topped off with the worst rewards system for subscribing to an online service (really.. 10MS points as a birthday gift?), I can safely say Xbox has lost me. Now the Xbox one is a great idea, and Microsoft has entered brand new demographic with their 'all in one' machine - but I have a laptop, I have a cable box, I have an iPad. Why would I get rid of all this still-new technologythat is currently working perfectly for me for a new device that is $500? I could see this all in one stuff being huge in maybe 6 years.. but not yet.

Anyways, not that any of you give a **bleep** about all that ^ hahahahaha. Here are some questions I have.

1. I created a PSN name on this website (nathanfabs). Will this be my PSN name once I log on with a PS4?
2. Has sony released a list of launch titles yet? If so, which ones would you recommend?

3. Do you like waffles?

Thanks to whoever helped, and whoever had to read my boring bio.. well.. sorry hahahahah.
Cheers!

So assassins creed is a launch title eh?

I'll probably go with that and battlefield at launch, then Watch Dogs and Killzone for Christmas. Beauty, thanks!

1. > Yes, the username is your PSN name used across all devices and interaction with the website and related services.

 

2. > There is no official list yet, but so far the known titles are: Killzone, Drive Club and Knack. There are other titles that are floating "around" launch, but not necessarily day and date...such as Watch Dogs and Infamous: Second Son.

 

3. > No, I do not like waffles. The Carl's Jr. breakfast burger is pretty tasty though.

That's what I figured. I'd assume games that come out on ps3 before the ps4 release will be at launch as well like BF4.

Thanks!

..I also love the friendliness of this community, definitely helping justify the switch hahaha! Smiley Happy

Welcome to PlayStation.

 

    I can see that you're really interested about it so here's the run down. 

Now I'm sure you heard about PlayStation Plus service by now and the games that come with it when your subscribed. Even though now it is required to play online for the Ps4, it's well more worth than Live. [Live is now turning into Plus service with their games coming in as well.] You'll have access to betas, discounts, and games. A lot of people are bummed out because the Ps4 needs a service to play online but click this link and scroll down to my comment.

 

  So after reading that, you'll know that some games will not require Plus for online. Planetside 2 and Dc Universe are online always and are very good games. So you have two games you can get once you have your Ps4. 

 

And i'd recommend Killzone Shadow Fall, since I've been a Killzone fan for a while.

Yes I did hear a bit about the mandatory Playstation Plus. As an Xbox Live subscriber for 9 years now, paying for an online service is fine by me! Especially as the free games and bonuses thing Plus has going is absolutely incredible.

Thanks for your help LazyShady! Smiley Happy I will definitely look in to Killzone more. I have never played a Killzone game in my life so I will have to check that out for sure. My question is how are the analogs/the controller for fps games? I'm a huuuuuge fan of fps multiplayer, but I haven't spent much time playing fps games on the PS3. Is the dualshock optimal for FPS games, or will it be something I'll have to take a bit of time to get used to?

Thanks! Smiley Happy
