I wanted to wait a few weeks so I could thoroughly test out the new PS4 before writing a review. Please understand that this review comes from a PC gamer perspective. I side with neither XBOX or PS.
The whole reason I love PC gaming so much is because of the graphics and ability to play games at 1080P @ 60fps+. Finally, consoles have cought up, sort of. I've been playing Assassins Creed BF and can noticeably tell the graphics engine is better on this new system. There's a lot more detail in the background with a larger field of view than the previous generation.
Obviously, my PC is my go to for intense gaming but when I want to casually play some games like Assassins Creed on a big screen, it's nice to have the PS4. The HUGE gap in graphics between consoles and PC has greatly reduced but there's still a gap.
The controller for the PS4 is so much better that I don't even want to compare it to the PS3. You just have to hold it to understand.
I'm loving the share and live stream options. I even like watching other random players across the country play. This is one feature that sets the console apart from PC. Sure you can live stream on PC and capture video (both of which I do), but the PS4 makes it so easy and user friendly.
The one thing that surprised me was when I popped in a 3D blu-ray movie only to find out that it's not supported yet. I mean, that's crazy sony. Why would you remove or neglect such a feature when you're the one pushing for Blu-ray and 3D movies through your movie studio. How do you release a console with less features than the previous generation. I know these are going to be updated in upcoming patches but the fact you launched without these simple features is beyond me.
