The PlayStation purchase was another purchase that I am sat here thinking did a really need it? While like any console or game the answer to that question is No but was it a good purchase that would be the better question? To be honest yes just because of the mess that is the PC release of the new Batman game Arkham Knight. I have really enjoyed the Arkham series and although I have yet to complete Arkhman Orgins because of my PC this game alone has made the console worth it for me.
The major question that I find myself asking is that will this console stay out of the draw which was the fate of the Xbox 360 and the honest answer with that is the jury is still out. The way in which PS Plus and live subscriptions now work will hold help towards that happening because of the free games every month, along with the fact that I now have the games console that some friends have that aren’t just into one person shooters, and if I was honest was the death of the Xbox 360 for me because although I enjoyed Call of Duty I have never been that good at first person shooters and constantly getting killed just really started to get annoyed with it. The type of games that I look forward to now are similar to Batman and The Witcher which could be my next purchase for the PlayStation.
Some of the features that I enjoy about the PlayStation or will are the sharing features, although recently getting an upgrade on my internet streaming is still out of the question or it is but on low quality which isn’t really good enough. That said though you can upload 15 min clips to YouTube, Facebook or Daily Motion which is huge for me, as I want to expand my online presence. The only thing I would like is that you could edit the clips more an add audio from on the PlayStation that said however I do believe it would possible to upload the video privately and then add the audio separately.
The only nagging issue I do have from picking the PlayStation is that everywhere I look it seems the majority of stuff is cheaper on the Xbox One, that said even though I still have friends that are die-hard fans of the Xbox I feel that I will get my enjoyment out of the PlayStation.
