I’ve had Battlefield 4 for my PS4 since launch, and I’ve definitely had my ups and downs with the game. Although I cannot condone the fact that Battlefield 4 was buggy and unfinished at release, it is an amazing FPS at its current state. In fact, I love the action so much that I’ve dedicated 95 hours to the game so far, according to my Battlelog. However, my dad also bought Battlefield 4 for the PS3 since I designated my PS4 as off-limits, (hey, it took months of saving for this; like heck anyone’s touching it) and I’ve been curious to see what the difference is between the last generation edition of BF4 and the current gen version. As it turns out, there is a pretty huge difference between the two versions, and considering they are both the same price, it makes the old version almost not worth buying. After spending a little while (an hour was all it took) with the PS3 version of Battlefield 4, I am convinced that there is a true, almost tangible difference in the quality between the old and new systems, and it really brought to my attention how far we’ve come, and how far we have yet to go.
I received my PS4 in the mail on Monday, November 18th, and I’ve played it for probably close to a dozen hours. The Playstation 4 has some great new features that the Playstation 3 didn’t have, and of course, there is a lot of innovation to be found in this gaming machine. When it comes down to it, the PS4 is a great piece of hardware, and I’m here to share with you all the info I’ve gathered in the past week that I’ve deemed important. Long story short, I love my PS4.
So, recently a video was released showing the inside of the PS4, and in the article I happened to run across, it showed the inside of an Xbox One as well. I’m not a tech nerd as far as the inner workings of the technology goes, so I need some help here. Please explain to me how on Earth the PS4 is supposed to cool itself efficiently as opposed to the Xbox One. It pains me to even ask this question, since I’m somewhat a Sony fanboy, but I’m concerned. Take a look for yourself in the pictures below.
Well, we’re finally here, guys. Within less than two months, next-gen systems will be released and spread across the globe, ushering in a new age in gaming as we know it. For me, it’s a bit amazing to think that it’s happening; it seems like just yesterday that I was flipping through the Game Informer magazines that showcased new details on each system. With all the hype coming to a head next month, we can’t forget about the current generation systems; there’s still a lot of life left in them. Microsoft and Sony are keeping these systems relevant, and third-party retailers like Gamestop are as well; price cuts are on the way.
It’s now a tradition four years running; every fall or winter, I grab a new, blockbuster military shooter to immerse myself in for hours on end. For the past three years, I made my purchases as a teen highly uneducated in the world of gaming, and Call of Duty always ended up on my pre-order list (not to say COD is terrible, but as I’m getting older, I’m realizing its style and pace doesn’t suit me like Battlefield). This year, I’m jumping ship; Battlefield 4 is where it’s at, in my opinion, and I can’t wait until launch day so I can go pick up my copy. I’ve been able to download the Battlefield 4 Beta for the PS3 this week, and although it is still a very rough draft, it’s getting me very excited to see what the polished, finished product will look like in all its glory.
Many people believe that the Xbox 360 has the best controller in gaming history. Others don’t buy that and insist that the PS3 remote is better. Of course, this debate is one completely up to user preference. For example, the smaller PS3 remote is better for smaller hands.
I’ve spent a lot of time with both the PS3 and Xbox 360 controllers. I like them both, but neither are perfect; they both have some flaws. In this article, I’m going to rate the two controllers based on their components, and at the end, you’ll see the composite results. Let’s get started!
