I have been meaning to do this post for a while. On launch day I was one of those dudes who stood in line for five hours just for the chance to buy the hyped next-gen console and I had every intention to write about my experiences with it.
As we all know, intentions aren’t worth shit.
Nevertheless, I’m here now and I want to rattle off some quick impressions of the system over my first couple of months fucking around on it.
- It’s seamlessly fast: What I mean by that is I can go from a game to the home screen to Netflix and back to a game in a matter of seconds. Like the shit is insanely quick. Lag in non-existent.
- The games look so much better: The two games I’ve gotten thus far are games that I played on the PS3 and, in my opinion, they look crazy good in comparison. Assassin’s Creed 4 looks way better than 3 did, moves faster and is much more responsive. The same thing can be said for NBA 2k14. This is one of the first games of the franchise where I can honestly say that parts look legitimately real.
- I dig the voice command function: I found it out last night (first time I actually plugged the headphones in) and haven’t stopped talking to it. It’s getting weird(ly awesome).
I’ll come back and do more later, but I wanted to get on and just give a shout out to all those who are on the fence of buying it or waiting around until it gets cheaper. I think it is worth the $399 (unbundled).
