sure Gaikai sounds interesting but I have to buy the games over again in order to obtain BC....
We still have no clue how Gaikai will work. For all we know, they'll up the price of PS+ and put it in there. As for your whole price thing, I don't see why you're arguing about investing more when it's still cheaper than the XBox One.

its not cheaper than the xbox one, if I buy a Vita and get the camera to get the extra features thats put the ps4 @ $200 more.......

and your point about Gaikai is moot we both could be right or wrong I think we can agree either way it wont be free (not that i was expecting it to be)

he didnt read your post where sony will have an app that turns whatever you want into "smart glass" he thinks you need a vita for that sh*t...its the same as xbox bruh

It really is though. I'd be ecstatic if they allowed the Vita to be used in place of the DualShock 4. Just make a shell add on for the device so that you could have R2 and L2 (instead of using the backtouch ) and you've got a Wii U experience right there.

You're not making any sense. Why are you buying a Vita? The Vita doesn't have an equal feature on the Xbox One therefore it shouldn't be considered.

its considered because its and advertised feature of owning a ps4 if i were to say "wow I want that feature day one" I'd have to pay extra it doesn't matter if the xbox has it or not dummy the Dreamcast didn't have a Dvd player that didn't omit that as a main selling point for the ps2.......

you're trying to use semantics to back you point and its silly

Ehhhh...close to the Wii. But not quite. The Wii U is still more advanced than just using your handheld as a touchscreen and controller. Have you played it? You can hold up the pad to the TV and the 2 screens can interact with each other.

Final words: He asked why you bring up the Vita because its compatibility with the PS4 has no equivalent on the Xbox One. That's a whole new experience. But the things you're talking about like video chat and all that camera stuff is available for only $60 if you buy the PS4 cameras an accessory....still less than an XB1.

PS4 compatibility with the Vita isn't just "smart glass". It takes virtually any PS4 game and puts it in your hands for on the go use. There's no telling what PS4-Vita hybrid games devs can come up with too so it's not just playing a PS4 game on a handheld but having a symbiotic relationship between PS4 and Vita versions of the game.

You can do that with the vita and ps3 too. I was using my vita to track down treasures and bottles in sly 4 in real time.

lol never said Transference was smartglass go back and read what i said....

why this doesn't appeal to me: besides gaming every selling point the Playstation has is ASKING ME TO BUY SOMETHING ELSE, Yeah Transference is cool but I have to buy a $250 device to take advantage of that
nowhere does that say I think Transference/remote/cross play is smart glass nor was I comparing it to smartglass specifically

not arguing the how good one feature is vs the other I'm talking strictly pricepoint of what would be spent if I wanted these features day one

Yea definately, no one is saying your not getting your values worth. Like the Dev said Kinect is like $200-300 make each and I believe him. What is it 3 cameras, sensors, infared, microphone. Dude makes a good point.

I might get a X1 down the line. Im a gamer.. I hold no sides! I only want to play the best games :P

Forza 5, Halo 5, KI, Dead Rising.. Those are all TRIPLE AAA titles.
Cosign.

I love my damn videogames @ the end of the day. I saved for both PS4 & XBoxOne A LONG time ago b/c I already knew ima want everything, just like this-gen!

the point is that people that dont want it will still buy it...because they are xbox fans...they dont have a choice...its fu*ked up
Um... no. The only reason people should take issue with options is if they're in contract with a company. The days of people treating gaming companies like an insurance group need to stop. If you (the retarded "fan boy") can't see past your jaded sense of "loyalty" in order to make a wise gaming investment, then it's your fault... not Microsoft's (generally speaking of course). I don't even think Apple fans are that dumb.

There's no reason to include the Vita though. The PS4 is equal to the One with just Camera once you take out the TV features.

They want a bigger Kinect install base. Can't get any bigger than 100% of people with an Xbox One will have a Kinect. Without typing up a bunch of sh*t... Everyone having a Kinect = better Kinect games.

No its not.

The PS4 camera is not going to let you cross game group video chat, its not going to recognize who is holding the controller so that it can map the controller buttons to the players profile specifications, etc. And that's without the tv stuff, without the bluray stuff, without the internet stuff and without the app stuff.

The ps4 camera does not equal a Kinect 2.0, anyone who is into video games can tell you that.

To access every feature that the PS4 is advertised to have, you need a $250 vita.
