PS4 or Switch? - March 21st 2017, 05:35 PM

So I'm debating between getting a PS4 and a Nintendo switch. I already have a PS Vita which is why I'm interested in the PS4, however, I've always been a Nintendo fan. I looked at both system's games library and like both, however, I'm more attracted to the switch's games. BUT the PS4 has a few of the Tales series games which I'm a huge fan of.

Does anyone here have either of these systems and how do you like them and feel about them? I want opinions so that way it will help me decide what system to pick.

My boyfriend is a gamer. He has all consoles except nintendo switch. I asked him this question and he said that it really all depends on the games. If you like what the nintendo has to offer than go with that.

I know my boyfriend is not interested in the nintendo switch at this point in time. He said they really only have one game he'd like (Zelda) and so he's not big on spending the money to play one game.

He does say that PS4 has a better stable of games right now though.

I'm quite the gamer. I have almost all the systems that are currently available, minus the switch.

However, generally Nintendo is mostly directed to family friendly games. I find their games are a lot less stressful and that they are fun games to play.

I personally find with the PS4, that there's a lot less games that I would enjoy. I'm waiting to get Kingdom Hearts.

You should also look into cost. PS4 games are very expensive. I'm not sure how much switch games are though.

I can't make a fair choice as I don't have the Nintendo Switch (yet ) but the PS4 has a wide selection of great games. And if you didn't get to play many on the PS3, there are plenty of PS4 remakes that are even better now.

Assuming you buy the PS4 now, would you be able to buy the Nintendo Switch in the future? If so, I personally think it'd be best to buy the PS4 now since there are already many great games out for it, then buy the Nintendo Switch later on down the road when more games are released that way you also have a wider selection in that area too.

Just my two cents. Whichever you go with, I hope you enjoy it. Have fun!

If you want my personal opinion, go for PS4. A better library, better looking/performing games and, like you said, good support with PS Vita for Remote Play (You can also do Remote Play with PC). The Nintendo consoles are imo not really meant as your flagship console, but as the second pillar (If you could afford) that plays games like Mario, Zelda and other games that your PS4 does not have

If you want to use the console more than gaming too, you should get the PS4 as the Switch has no YouTube, Netflix and/or web browser/other streaming service app (yet).

Makes it my console choice, but Im a simple person when it comes to video games. Ive always enjoyed Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Smash, Donkey Kong, mario/beerio kart, Fire Emblem... in general, games that have less real graphics. I still bust out games from the 90s on a regular basis not for the graphics, but because they're really fun.

I chose the PS4 I plan on buying the switch at a later date when it has more games and isn't as glitch-y.

Thanks for your input everyone!

PS4. Switch is too new. PS4 has really good exclusives (Bloodborne, Nioh, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, Uncharted 4,etc.), and games in general (Destiny, Overwatch, Life is Strange, Witcher, etc.). It also supports 4K. This year is going to be a knock out for PS4. Just wait till switch drops down in price. It's fun, but you'll get more bang for your buck with PS4 in current state. Just check out Twitch and you'll see what I mean.

Since the OP has come to a decision about what console they want I am going to go ahead and close the thread. If you would like it reopened feel free to message me. If you have further questions you can also create a new thread.
