    This x10000!, Optimised better PC games rather than ports that have been poorly coded, With consoles using x86 hardware hopefully we should get some great looking games now.

    Absolutely nothing, even as a technology fan and PS Vita owner I can honestly say nothing about the PS4 (and PS3 before it) has made me interested.

    I've got a good PC with a decent graphics card, for me than invalidates any need for a TV attached console of any kind. The only interesting thing about the XBox One for me is the TV and other features and that's probably US focussed anyway so kinda moot...

    I like the Vita (when a rare decent game shows up) because I can play it on the train, on London commuter trains it needs to be handheld!

    Re: Features - QOTW: What excites you most about PlayStation 4?

    I am not excited. Yet.

    What I need to see is a game which was impossible on the 360/PS3 generation. I don't mean to say that the 360 can run the same games at the same quality - what I mean is there's no practical difference between, say, Assassin's Creed 4 on PS3 or PS4 other than price.

    On the 360, it didn't take long for a game to happen which would have been impossible on the Xbox generation: Dead Rising. A totally new way to play which simply wasn't possible on the older hardware.

    When the PS4 and XBox One have exclusives which would never have been possible on the current gen, even at a lower resolution, then I may be interested. I suspect the defining feature of the new hardware, therefore, is how much RAM it has, not the CPU or GPU.

    From what I have read the AC 4 PS4 version has smoother frame rates and higher draw distance, so you see more detail.

    It's quieter than an original PS3. It looks alright, and has an integrated PSU. It's only 0.4% likely to be broken out of the box. It's foremost a games console. It's not stupidly expensive.

    I can't say I've studied the PS4 closely, but that probably says how excited I am about it.

    It's possible I might end up with one, but I'd have said that about XBOne before I found out about some of their design decisions. So I might buy one, but after I look at more closely, I equally well might not.

    Excited? Nah. I'm about as excited as I am when I decide whether to have peas or green beans with my pie & mash. Actually, ignore that .... I'm not as excited as I am over peas v. green beans, and I'm not exactly wetting myself with anticipation over that, either.

    Re: Features - QOTW: What excites you most about PlayStation 4?

    I've got a PS3, but I don't even know what features the PS4 has or doesn't have. I guess that says a lot.

    I may end up with one at some point, but given the launch price it's going to be a very long time before I pick one up. Maybe if Gran Turismo 7 is excellent?

    Whoop de doo.

    It's still a PS3 game.

    Quake 3 doesn't become next-gen just because I run it at 1440p.

    The technical aspects of it. The SOC seems a very interesting piece of engineering indeed. Also the fact it is X86 will help PC ports of multiplatform games IMHO.

    the knowledge that I have a "next gen console" amount of savings in my bank, knowing that I now would not buy either and can put it towards my next PC instead.

    Unhappy Re: Features - QOTW: What excites you most about PlayStation 4?

    Like others said, not much tbh. Being a hardware geek, previous gens were interesting to me just for their different specs: the Cell processor, Blu-ray, even the SH-1 Hitachi cpus in Segas, the 'sort-of' 64-bit Jaguar, the texturing of 3DO, FX chip on SNES LOL

    The XB1 & PS4 are so generic and practically interchangeable internally, they offer nothing that can't be seen in an average low-end PC.

    The advantages have been mentioned of course: easier programming, better ports etc.

    Personally though, I think something has been lost with the trend to homogeneity.

    I was lucky to try out a PS4. Games uses DX10, so inn AC4, waters weren't plastic!
    The XMB has also been replaced.
