Pros -Outstanding controller

-Not much of a graphical improvement from PS3, but methods of playing the games have been greatly improved (E.G. Controllers and motion control, plus a lot more)

""4 the Gamers""on by BalramRules
Pros 1) Focused solely on Gaming
2) Its online service, PS+, is an absolute bargain
3) Very friendly community
4) Great value for money
5) Many fab exclusives
6) Plenty of indie support
7) Most popular of this generation of consoles
Cons BBOD Hardware Failures exist, though <1% and also negligible compared to its direct competitor, the Xbox One (which is currently affecting a notorious amount of units)
Summary The PS4 is the most promising of the next-generation of consoles to release this year and has already surpassed 2 million units sold worldwide, compared to its competitor who just scraped 1 million (at the time of writing).
The PS4 does not force any unnecessary gaming accessories to buy with the console (such as its PSEye).
You can now download games in the background, or even play them, as they're downloading, for those titles that support this function.
PS+, which is PlayStation's Online Gaming service, not only provides Online Multiplayer, but gives a library of PS3/4/Vita titles for free, every month, so long as you remain subscribed, and has been centered around a social environment.
Along with all of that, Cross-Game Chat (aka Party Chat) has now made it to the PS4, and there will also be Cross-Platform Functionalities for select games/features, with smartphones/PS Vita/PS3s/PC.
Sony have reiterated on countless occasions that everything that is being done, is primarily all for the gamer, and everyone else is second, and have proved this point just as many times as they're reiterated it, through giving countless giveaways, games, rewards for loyalty, and so on.
With this console, you can replace the hard disk drive, without voiding the warranty, and has been made easy to do so, where all you have to look for, is the all-famous Golden PlayStation Screw, which is all you need to screw out and back in, with a Phillips Screwdriver.
Its specs are significantly greater than all of its competitors, to top it all up.
Sony is set to surpass 5 million units (PS4s) sold, on its FIRST Quarter of being released, and have set countless records worldwide, alongside with this PS4, it's set to be bundled with a PS Vita, and is already beginning to shift plenty of PS Vita units worldwide.
I predict that Sony's set to win this generation of console gaming, without any obstacles, as we all know, first impressions count, and PS4 has taken every opportunity to get it right, whilst Microsoft, to be frank, "messed it up" completely.
Pros Easy Interface. Great Graphics. Selling 4 to 1 over the Xbox one. Better Hardware than the Xbox One.
Cons Not many games yet, but that will all change.
Summary I actually own this system unlike half the people on here rating it. If you play sports games, even the crowd is better looking. This is hands down the better system and in time game developers are going to realize that most of their customer base will be on the PS4 and build games to PS4 specs, and the Xbox None will not be able to play the same games. Xbox None will be forgotten about in a couple of years. I am sure the Xbox None is a decent system, but from the people I have talked to, they are already having regrets. They paid more money for a lesser system. Sucks to be them. The quantity of media available for the PS4 at the moment on PSN is very limited, but that will all change. I did not want a media center, I wanted the top tier games and the best hardware driven game console. I like the NFL, but I don't need a Xbox None to enjoy that. That is what Smart TV's are for, duh! Anyways, I am bashing the Xbox None a little because of the fake reviews I read through. I own the PS4 and it is hands down the winner.
Pros Graphics, Price, Quick interface, large friends list, Share buttons cool
Cons Lack of launch games, no Youtube app, doesn't support Sony made headsets from the PS3, cant use the USB from the PS3 controller to charge PS4 controller
Summary If you are looking to just game before anything else, this is the console for you. The graphics are more crisp and theres a lot of power in this little system.
