    Even for under 16's? All those kids who get bullied at school could all have their bully sent to prison?

    I am very skeptical about that.

    Hurting?

    It's the highest single platform game in the chart.

    Every other game is on multiple systems.

    As grassyknoll has already shown when you break it down by platform it's 3rd behind last gen versions of FIFA.

    Which both had a full week, DC only went on sale on Friday.

    its an exclusive and had to compete with multiple cross gen multiplatforn games.

    And considering it got lukewarm reviews, and Forza is a much better received and polished game.

    Coming in 5th is not bad at all. I honestly thought it would struggle to get into the top 10.

    @jetsetwillie

    I'm 30, and me and my friends all have houses/kids/ work. Yet once every 6 months we get together at one of our houses and have a night or booze, junk food and gaming.

    Online means we can play more often and we do (once a week) but as we live far away (Manchester, Scarborough and Rhyl) going to the pub ect isn't really a goer.

    I think both local and online multiplayer are important.

    It looks like you can't.

    Create an account and add all your specs.

    Then when you search for a game it gives your PC marks out of 10 for each setting Low, Medium, High.

    Edit:

    Don't know if that will show you the results but your GPU isn't good enough by some way for even then minimum.

    Your Ram is fine.

    I have sold my PS3 and 360. I do have a decent laptop but it can be a pain (mainly play Football Manager).

    The last PS3 game I bought was GTA 5, which I will be buying again. I much prefer the PS4, and I held of buying games like Diablo and Minecraft on PS3 as I knew PS4 versions where coming.

    I just don't have the time for more than one so I couldn't base my choice just on exclusives, although I still prefer PS4 exclusives as A) Most don't appear on none Sony platforms and B) They tend to have a diverse line up.

  • Mr-Writer 12/10/2014

    @cloudskipa

    I've not bought many exclusives tbh I have Resogun, completed Killzone which the single player was meh but I loved multiplayer.

    I also enjoyed Knack, not a brilliant game but fun enough.

    I've enjoyed mostly 3rd party games and have my eye on a games like Infamous and Driveclub when they go down in price.

    See I knew from launch day that it wouldn't have loads of first party exclusives but I'm fine with that I have FIFA, Diablo, Minecraft, BF4 and PVZ Garden Warfare to keep me busy until the likes of LBP 3, Bloodborne and Uncharted.

    I also have a ton of indies to try and Plus games.

    My two best friends have PS4's and both had PS3's so to have things like cross game chat was another reason.

    I also own a Vita and I use remote play a lot. I don't have as much time for games as I used to, and on PS3 I bought loads of games in sales and never played them.

    So arm I stick to a small group of games and I play the shit out of them. I have also gone digital (don't want my son to mess around with discs) so again more expensive gaming, hence why I still have FIFA 14 and won't be buying 15.

    For me, my life style, and my gaming time the PS4 is perfect, and offers me things the PS3/ X1 can't such as friends and remote play.

    Also I'm going to have this console for a long time so in 5 years time for example I may have more time for gaming and by then the number of exclusives will be longer than it is now.

    I personally think it has some cracking first party games, and will have even more so by the start of next year.

    The PS4 has for me, filled the gap of my console needs. I know you will disagree but I could say the same to you, are you truly happy with Killer Instinct, Forza H2 and Zoo Tycoon?

    And I'm willing to bet the answer is yes.

    Listen dude honest the fact you have prefer line up to another all good.

    Like I said the X1 line up doesn't grab me but that doesn't mean it does lack quality.

    Funnily enough I'm the same with Infamous, I loved for first, but the second I couldn't get into.

    And the same as you it put me off SS. Well unless it hits less then 20 in a PSN sale then I will bite.

    I also apologise for getting a little personal I was just getting frustrated that my point was being lost.

    I have nothing against people buying an X1.

    Had I the time (works, child and wife) and the money I would own both.

    It just baffles me that people seem to think the PS4 lacks quality games.

    Did I post my original comment to you?

    No?

    I didn't turn anything. I was merely backing up my claim that the person I was responding to was wrong.

    As I have said several times (which you have ignored) that had they said they preferred the X1 exclusives then that's fine.

    But they didn't said they said the PS4 lacked quality exclusives compared to X1.

    Which is clearly doesn't, not wanting to play a certain game doesn't effect its quality does it?

    I don't want to play Sunset overdrive does that make it shit? No it's just not for me.

    I'm personally not saying all those games are bad either (I haven't played them).

    As I said, the person I commented to said the PS4 lacked quality exclusives compared to X1.

    Which is not true.

    Had they said "the X1 exclusives appeal to me more" then that's fine.

    Even all those highly rated PS4 I haven't played most of them.

    I personally liked Knack but that was panned.

    I only used metacritic scores to show the PS4 does have exclusives that are quality.
    Reply +2
  • Mr-Writer 11/10/2014

    @FMV-GAMER

    The weak argument was having to include games that are also on PC.

    Where did I say you preferring the X1 games was wrong?

    So not only can you not read but you also like to make things up as well?

    I was simply point out that the PS4 doesn't lack quality games.

    I haven't said its better (though I have shown they are rated better) which they are.

    And since my original point was that regardless of opinion the PS4 does not lack behind in quality titles makes everything you are banging on about about as pointless as my lists.

    As for being a "fantard" says the person who thinks all games not on X1 are shit.

    And that if you don't want to play the game it's shit.

    I actually pitty you.

    Wooooosh it seems you are a little dim.

    I was simply pointing out that the PS4 was not lacking in quality titles.

    You were the one who butted in and started going on about PC games being included.

    I don't care what people choose, but I will point out when people are chatting shit.

    If someone doesn't rate the PS4 exclusives that's no skin off my nose.

    But don't try and pretend that the PS4 is lacking.

    As its not.

    Which was my original point. I even said in that first post "if they don't appeal to you that's a different kettle of fish" as tastes and what games appeal to an individual are different.

    So you keep calling me a "funny little person" to make up for the fact you can't read.

    Since 6/10 on here is considered bad then anything with a meta score less than 70 shouldnt be counted.

    Zoo Tycoon - 68

    Project Spark doesnt have a score yet.

    @FMV-GAMER

    I included PC and cross gen on both.

    And you keep changing the goal posts to match your weak argument.

    We don't know how highly rated those games are going to be, where as the games I listed are released and have been rated by a large group of people.

    The PS4 has less but higher rated exclusives, it also has more when you include cross gen and PC games.

    Actually since we are only counting games that on other platforms the PS4 also has

    Flower - 91
    Tower fall- 87
    Final Fantasy 11 - 86
    Sound and Shapes - 84
    Transistor- 84
    MLB the show - 83
    Sports friends - 82
    Pixel Junk Shooter Ultimate - 82
    Steam world dig - 82
    Injustice - 80
    Don't starve - 78
    DC Universe- 75
    Dead Nation - 74
    Escape plan - 73
    Infamous First Light - 73
    Mouse craft - 72
    Futuridium - 72
    Doki Doki - 71
    Flow - 71
    Mercenariy Kings - 70

    So that's 32 exclusives to X1's 12.


    Yeeeeeah the PS4 is lacking, so actually the PS4 has more and has more highly rated.

    Only a moron would argue with the facts.

    Edit; One last edit links to where I get my numbers from.

    Xbox 1 all time rated games.

    @FMV-GAMER

    But if they are on PC they are not exclusives.

    Plus there are plenty of games on PS4 and PC. And a few cross gen (and even cross buy) highly rated games on PS4 that X1 don't have.

    Again like I said whilst the taste is of course personal. The PS4 really doesn't lack highly rated exclusives.

    In fact I bet that if you listed both PC and cross gen games included I bet there wouldn't be very little difference.

    Here we are all games you can play on PS4 but not on X1

    TLOU - 95
    Velocity - 86
    Rouge Legacy - 85
    The Swapper - 84
    Odd world - 84
    Infamous - 80
    Castle storm - 76
    Hohokum - 75
    Anomoly 2 - 75
    Driveclub - 72
    Road not taken - 70

    All games on X1 you can't play on PS4

    Pinball fx - 91
    Titanfall - 86
    Forza H 2 - 85
    Super time force - 81
    Forza 5 - 79
    Dead Rising 3 - 78
    D4 - 77
    Dance Central - 74
    Zumba - 73
    Killer instinct- 73
    Max the cruse - 72
    Xbox fitness - 71

    So 11 PS4 games 12 X1. But the PS4 has more rated in the 80's.

    And TLOU is rated higher than Pinball.

    As I said personal taste is a different kettle of fish but you can't say the PS4 lacks quality exclusives compared to the X1.

    @MilkYMoO

    Lack of quality exclusives compared to X1?

    PS4 Exclusives metacritic scores all games that are full exclusives with at least a 70 rating on meta.

    Resogun - 84
    Abe new and tasty - 84
    Infamous- 80
    Kill zone SF - 73
    Driveclub- 72

    X1
    Forza 5 - 79
    D4 - 77
    Dance Central Spotlight - 74
    Killer Instinct- 73
    Xbox Fitness - 73

    Obviously if those games appeal to you more than that's a whole kettle of fish.

    But the PS4 doesn't lack good exclusives compared to the X1.

    @frazzl

    Oh look Frazzl sticking up for a MS fanboy there's a surprise.

    Let's look at what he says shall we?

    "I'd still be lumbered with a controller I'm not a fan of "

    Lumbered is a very odd word to use for someone not bashing something is it not?

    Preferring is fine life would be boring if we all
    liked the same things but let's be honest lumbered is usually reserved for the more negative discriptions.

    Which is what my whole post was about, he doesn't like people bashing MS but is happy to do the same?

    "I'd still be connected to a shite online network with overpriced games. "

    Again shite isn't a word I'd use, or even yourself. You have said yourself live performs better. I personally don't see it, but I know Live is not shite.

    PSN runs fine for me, and again whilst you prefer Live you still don't say PSN is shite.

    People preferring the X1 is all greavy.

    "Xbox haters will say anything to try and justify PS4 as the superior choice...and it might be for some of you. "

    That is how he starts, so he says PS4 owners try to justly by hating on the X1

    Then hates on the PS4.

    Can you see why I pulled him up on it?

    Just like people like you have to make up stuff to bash Sony.

    The controller is one of THE best ever. Check out reviews on websites lots of people rate the DS4 as a great controller

    Shite network? Proof of that do you? Oh let me guess Driveclub? That my little friend is a server issue on Evos side.

    Over priced games? A) Sony allow developers to set the price B) There are plenty of sales C) you could always go to the shops.

    You carry on trying to downplay how good the PS4 is you little fanboy you are nothing more than a laughing stock.

    In fact I'm still waiting for your proof that ROTTR is being co-developed by MS.

    Noticed how you ignored that one, then again people who make shit up tend to avoid answering questions when they are called out.

    Well surely if you had to group gaming devices than PC, PS4 and X1 would be at the top.

    Followed by PS3, 360 and WiiU

    Then handhelds

    Then mobile

    Tho depending on you budget and how much money you wanted to make and how quickly you could obviously swap them around.

    If you wanted to make a quick easy buck then mobile would be the priority.
