Hello everyone,just a new guy here,and i wanted to discuss something thats been messing with me.I was thinking of getting a game console,and i heard PS game consoles are great(but i would still like to hear whats the pros of a Xbox One)but i'm confused if i should get a PS3 or a PS4.I heard there are some really great games on PS3 ,and i hate to miss out,but the PS4 sounds interesting too.I would like to hear your opinions on this,since both the PS3 and 4 are good consoles(from what i hear)

I would go for next gen, just because that is where all the new games will start going to.

A good question is, did Sony fix the asinine decision to not allow their "next gen" consoles to play previous gen games?

well,i would go for PS4,but i been thinking of that beforehand,it would be a sad waste to go on to the next gen without having to play some of the best games that are said to be "PS3 Exclusive,like Last Of Us and some other games on par to quality and gameplay.Really hope they can implement that function.

get a ps4, within this yr ps3 games may stop even being made. get a ps4 so you can have new games for the next 5-7 years. but remember you need a playstation plus subscription to play most multiplayer games.
$10 = 1 month
$17.99 = 3 months
$50 = a year

Sony announced a cloud streaming service at CES called PlayStation Now.

The basics is that it allows people to stream past games through the cloud. It goes into closed beta at the end of this month. I'm hoping to get in.

It's launching in NA this summer, Europe gets it early next year. Last I heard, the selection will consist of PS3 games, and then slowly expand to PS2/PS games.

Is 'none' an acceptable answer? I hope it is.

The only downsides I could possibly think of for the PS4 are that the online isn't free and not all of my friends have upgraded to it from the PS3 yet.

I can't decide yet. PS4 looks really nice but I have no idea when I'm going to get it. I'm in the same situation as pick none of my friends have upgraded to it. I might wait until my PS3 dies or maybe if some PS4 exclusive strikes me.
