PS4 vs # year old gaming PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I have been wondering is it worth buying the new special edition PS4 or just to keep saving money for about 2 years to beastly upgrade my PC. I just saw the the special edition PS4 and it is a pretty good deal for about 400 dolllars. 2 controlers  and 2 games for about 400 dollars is the deal in my country. So what do you think, should I keep saving money or buy a PS4?

If they're not changing the hw of the ps4 then upgrade your pc, but it also depends on if those games are exclusives that you care about.

I personally think that PC gaming is massively better than console gaming not because "wow the graphics look marginally better" (dont kill me i just dont give a shit about graphics), but beacuse of framerates, customisability, the fact it's a normal PC and has all of that functionality and backwards compatability, so I think it's worth the extra time saving money. 

 

Oh and emulators if you're into that, they're cool.

I'm personally quite behind on hardware at the moment, so I'm not the person to ask I'm afraid! What's your budget?

Oh, I am so stupid. The new PS4 has a new name too and I tought it is a game XD. It is called Days Of Play Blue Limited Edition, but they give a bonus controler with it. I gues  it is not that good deal. xD

My budget is about 700 dollars for now. Maybe more if I am allowed to give more of my money. My parrents are giving about 550 dollars from them. Everything after has to be from me.

I'd ask over at the New Builds and Planning section, remember to look at the sticky post before posting

Nintendo hand holds are better simply because of Pokémon. What gen is it currently? I haven’t play Pokémon since the diamond and pearl.

Is this the regular PS4, or the PS4 Pro? I would personally opt for the Pro over the regular - or the XBOX One X (depends on which exclusives you prefer).

 

As to whether you upgrade your PC, or get a PS4? Entirely depends on which one you'll use more, and what you want out of it.

 

Can you list your current PC specs in full?

I just figured it out. When I started thinking what do I really need, I tought that I almost all the time need a computer at me, but I am not always at home. So I am going to buy a notebook. I need a thin, stylish and afordable one and I found it. It is the Microsoft Surface Laptop.

The Surface Laptop is one of the more affordable surface products but I wouldn’t exactly call it the best deal. Make sure to shop around before making a decision.
