With the recent next-gen console war outbreak, once again, fanboys and faithful gamers attack eachother with arguments and reasons why their choice is the better one. I, for once, think it's ridiculous. Just let personal taste lead you to your purchase, while you inform yourself through unbiased sources of the specs, exclusives, features, or any other particular thing you'd like to know about the systems.
This article is not here to discuss those matters, nor is its purpose to say that PS4 is better than Xbox One. For some reason, I have always been with the Sony consoles ever since the first Playstation. I just happen to like the system itself, the games, and the controller is especially dear to me, I simply love the button-configuration and how it perfectly fits in your hands! I've just been following a "brand" that has been giving what I want, and it never failed to fulfill my gaming needs.
Now, this article is about what Sony's next-gen console can give you game-wise, and that dear reader, is providing gamers with overdoses of excitement and antecipation! Read on to see why you should buy a PlayStation 4 if you are still unsure whether to do so.
Killzone: Shadow Fall
Infamous: Second Son
After the electrifying experience that was inFamous, the series now takes itself to whole new level of story-telling and twists in Infamous: Second Son, presenting a dystopian world controlled through surveillance. The oppressive force that claims all is for humanity's protection, has made enemies amongst the Conduits, humans with superpowers. You are one of those folks and will be fighting off the oppressive troops with your initial sort of Pyromancer powers, but your real power is that of copying the powers of other Conduits! One can only imagine the possibilites!
Knack was the first title announced for the PS4, and represents that genre that has the most potential to provide fun for someone holding a controller! Knack is a platformer of intriguing mechanics and charming looks, where the main character is an ancient robot made of runes, capable of altering his form in order to solve puzzles or engage powerful foes. The mastermind behind the legends of Spyro and Crash Bandicoot was part of the team that came up with Knack, so we can only expect good things from this one!

It has even been argued before that the dungeon crawler has always been intented to be released as a console game. Now with controls perfectly configured for the PS4 controller, PC-shy gamers can have their dose of demon-slaying on the comfort of their sofa!
