As it stands I'm holding off on moving to the ps4 until the bugs are worked out and people actually know what they are getting. The graphics will be amazing.
Backwards compatibility is unlikely and it looks like it will be social network based. If Facebook is required I'm done.
If a camera and mic are required I'm done.
I'm not into games enough to have an easily accessible spy in my house.

The camera/mic for the ps4 are a separate purchase so its not required for the psn but certain games may need it. Either way its not permanently on like the xbox.

The PS4 will have a fee for online play, but it will be around what people pay now for xbox live. But it will still be worth it, because I am sure it will have a better security system than the free PS3 version had which got hacked. Plus 1 mountainman13 on not buying a system that spies on you. That is one of the biggest reasons I am not getting an xbox, plus Microsoft says they will have rights to whatever they learn about you and therefore sell to other companies for marketing info. I find no reason to pay for a system in which they will make money off of spying on me, they should at least make it free LOL!

As far as backward capability goes neither will have it sadly, but the WiiU does!

I'm not paying a fee for online play. As it is most games are $60, then you need to buy the online pass $10, then they come out with more content another $30. By the time you get into the game and realize you don't like it you're out $100. You bring it back to the store and they buy it back for $12.
Add a monthly fee to this and subtract the $12 return because they want to move everything to download only and when your ps4 craps out in a year you're out $1000+.
I'll buy ammo instead.

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

Neither is perfect. I hate that our PC games can't be shared between my son and I. Why the consoles allow it and PC doesn't is beyond me. Sounds like paying for online with PS will end up costing you as much as the XBox. Bummed Destiny got launched with the PS even though it will be on both systems. Due to the Halo franchise, I know my son will buy the Xbox, so I get a free system and Halo

I think there will be some more minor tweaks before launch on both systems though. Stay tuned.

I used to be a big PC gamer but theybare so damned expensive. At least the consoles never need hardware upgrades. When you build a PC it is already obsolete

I was an old Atari gamer, then Nintendo, then switched over to Playstation. Huge Battlefield and Call of Duty fan. PS4 all the way. Looks like XBox is shooting themselves in the foot with there requirements.

What are some games you guys are looking forward to?
My list so far.

1. Battlefield 4
2. Watchdogs
3. The order 1886
4. Mario cart 8
5. Gran Turismo 6

Also The Last of Us looks really good, but I do not have a PS3.
