My other half asked what i wanted for Xmas, i said PS4, so what are the chances of him getting one before Xmas?

im confident about him getting one but im not sure.

Is the new gen going to be the biggest rip off ever??
55 games,more micro-transactions, even more DLC.

its the same whenever a new console generation is released.
The original PS3 games were really expensive as well when it first came out but prices will fall.

The issue is that this current gen (ps3/xbox360) will be around longer than the previous gens so its an excuse for gave devs to charge more for the new gen games at least until the new gen gets more established.

In terms of games, if we are talking first party games such as dead rising /forza/killzone ect then those games will take full advantage of the next gen abilities.

I have noticed that that say call of duty ghosts doesnt use the rumble triggers of the xbone's pad when firing so in terms of difference between the xbox 360/xbone there are no differences. (which is a total rip off!!)

I have yet to play the ps4 for any extended period but would say that no one would blame you for waiting 12 months until the rest of the first wave of next gen games have been released.

I would say that ps4 have Uncharted 4 / Infamous / possible GT release

Xbone has Titanfall / Halo / rumoured Gears of war

Both are waiting for Watchdogs (which looks better on PS4 (same as assassins creed:black flag)

Its a difficult choice but would point out that if you dont have a pre order then its unlikely you will get one until after xmas for either console.

You *may* be able to walk into a store and buy one over the weekend.

There are still XB1's available in stores so you never know!

Try Sony centres. I spoke to a guy in there over the weekend and he was quite clear, they will have plenty. Not reserved.

I just got off the phone to the switch-board of Currys-PC World and the guy told me that all the stores will be doing a midnight launch.
