I understand that new consoles are supposed to be hyped but am I the only one that waits and doesnt get the full price console on release day.

Consoles are not only expensive on their first release but they are like prototypes that are more likely to crash/brick or other problems on you, while a year or two later an updated version with more memory/other spec upgrades like ps3 slim. sure, there may be some good launch titles but it'll take a while for any good games to build up.

launch consoles always break so i'm waiting until next year as well

You're not.

Anyone who buys a new console right out the gate and isn't either
A) Paid to play those games, IE Reviewing
B) Have a large income
is insane. You play a console for games yet the games that these two new consoles are relying on for their launch window are ones you can already play on your current gen consoles or PC, and if you're buying them just so you can upgrade your game experience then you should just spend the money on upgrading your PC.

reviewers getting consoles to do their reviews kinda goes without saying. (being a game reviewers sounds fun but it must get boring speeding through every game without fully enjoying it)

I'm in the middle of being casual and hardcore I'm picky when it comes to games, I hate fps's but like sandboxes and jrpg's(as long as it's not turn based) . when I have a game I like I play though it completely in a few sittings but after that I dont even touch my console for months sometimes.

I just got my ps3 a little more than a year ago, and I bought most of the games that are now old for way less than a quarter of their original price (I still have enough games to distract myself with until the midlife crisis of the ps4).

The only downside of not getting games around the time they come out is that the hype is gone and there isnt anyone to talk to about the game anymore (just look at GTA5). but maybe i should get into pc gaming since this console thing i getting a bit out of hand..

I switched to PC over two years and I enjoy it much more. The money I save on buying games now easily allows me to pay for gas money or upgrades (I actually just recently built a new computer). My steam account is worth roughly 1300 USD, and I think I've maybe paid 300. I'd recommend it but only if you have the money for it. It's a larger cost up front but it saves you more in the long run.

I know about computers (software) but nothing about gaming pc's and their requirements/specs for gaming.

I can learn this stuff quick anyways since Im a quick learner with tech but how often do you need to upgrade your pc to keep it up to date with current games.

Less than xbox one after two years of multiplayer fees with over twice the tflop performance(twice ps4's with a light oc), twice the cpu clockspeed, twice the hdd space, 3gb more total system memory, and reusable case/psu.

Newegg TV: How To Build a Computer - Part 1 - Choosing Your Components As for learning, this is a 3 part video series that gives you all the information you need on building a PC step by step.

How often you need to upgrade depends entirely on what you bought and whether you're bottlenecking yourself. A decent mid-tier PC (500-800 USD) with no bottlenecks (One low end piece making your higher end parts act much weaker) can last you three years (assuming you overclock, possibly longer, up to another year or two), and even then it won't really require an upgrade, just lower settings. Then, the only part that would need to be upgraded is usually your GPU. An extremely important thing that many people who don't game PC don't know about is that you need to update drivers occasionally (really only GPUs get new drivers, and that's every month or two). Drivers are the software that run your parts, so new driver updates give you increased performance and fix possible glitches. For example, this is part of the changelog for the newest Nvidia drivers.
GeForce GTX 690/770/780/TITAN:
Up to 12% in Battlefield 4
Up to 19% in Sniper Elite V2
Up to 13% in Dirt: Showdown
Up to 9% in Metro: Last Light
Up to 9% in Sleeping Dogs
Up to 8% in Max Payne 3
Up to 6% in F1 2012

so cheaping out on parts to make the pc is bad idea...would you rather the hardrive box or the pc wallmount for more easier replacements/setup..

btw, are there any exclusive to pc games that you'd recommend?
User avatar #164 to #163 - yusay ONLINE (11/16/2013) [-]
I just put my PC on a stand next to my desk. You don't really upgrade enough that it affects your placement and it's only really important to keep your PC off of the floor.

I haven't been able to game much with classes lately, but if you want exclusives look up TotalBiscut WTF is. He does first impression videos for PC games on whether or not you should buy them and they're very helpful. As for just me, try Fallout or Skyrim on PC but with mods. Changes the game a lot.

thanks, I'll try some of this out, I have some friends that are pc gamers too so they'll can get me to date with this stuff. btw, do you use a normal gaming keyboard/mouse and game controllers?
User avatar #173 to #168 - yusay ONLINE (11/16/2013) [-]
I used to use a cheap mouse and keyboard but now I use a gaming set I got on sale. Helps out a good deal, but make sure you buy ones that suit your needs. My mouse is good for FPS games, but there are ones out there that are better for MMOs and RPGs. I don't use any controllers, but that's because the only way I could use one in my set up would be incredibly uncomfortable.

alright, thanks a bunch..
User avatar #47 to #22 - douthit (11/16/2013) [-]
Yep, totally agree. The earliest I'll buy one is next Christmas, so any bugs are worked out, it'll be cheaper, and I can get a gaming bundle.
User avatar #60 to #47 - knightr **User deleted account** (11/16/2013) [-]
yeah, completely forgot about the bundles that come along later too.

buying the console on the first day of launch is just begging for a bunch of bugs and kinks. they always release an "updated" version of the console several months later so why would I get it now?
User avatar #44 to #41 - knightr **User deleted account** (11/16/2013) [-]
the only reason to get it now is if:
1) Money is no object for you.
2) You really want to play the exclusive launch titles and cant wait.
User avatar #38 to #22 - thedippestofshits ONLINE (11/16/2013) [-]
feelin' ya. Yesterday i bought an xbox 360 pack (i never owned a console before) with a 250gb hardrive, 2 controllers, halo 4, skyrim, forza 4 and 1 month of xbox live for 200 euros.

****** cash.
User avatar #39 to #38 - knightr **User deleted account** (11/16/2013) [-]
nice, I just got my ps3 last year and bought an ass load of good games that used to be $60+ for $5-10 each now I have enough games to distract myself for a long time.

since it's christmas season a few triple A games will be coming out but I dont care for buying them new since they are motsly next gen and full price games..
User avatar #26 to #22 - grapefruity (11/16/2013) [-]
Nope. I will buy the PS4 next year, when it has games and the bugs are straightened out.

Mostly a PC gamer anyway, so it doesn't matter to me too much.
User avatar #28 to #26 - knightr **User deleted account** (11/16/2013) [-]
I'm more casual about games.

I like being current with games so I can talk to friend irl and people online about it but now a days I dont care anymore, I'm not in a rush to get the game the week it comes out. hell, i can even wait a few years and still enjoy playing it even though it's old.

it's all about the hype. it dies down once the game comes out..
User avatar #32 to #28 - grapefruity (11/16/2013) [-]
That's why I waited for all those early bugs to be fixed on the new Pokemon before even considering buying it. Nowadays games are made faster to be patched later, so waiting until that inevitable patch just makes more sense to me.
User avatar #36 to #32 - knightr **User deleted account** (11/16/2013) [-]
yeah, that was surprising, I'd never expect a big(and simple) game franchise like pokemon to have a game breaking bug glitch in it.

There was a patch for it that came out quickly. Fortunately the bug didnt happen to most people and there was a little glitch for getting out of it..but some actually had to start a new game..
