    and told me I'm only getting $170 for my birthday so we can't get a PS4. So "I" put my foot down and said I've been saving up in my own savings... neener neener! Then I put on my parachute pants and did the MC Hammer dance while singing "Can't Touch This." :cool:

    So now that I know I have $170 for games and the like I have to make some tough calls.

    Mainly I'm going to get 1 or 2 MP games based on what friends list peeps are getting. Either KZ, BF4, or CoD... so if you're on my friends list... what are you getting for MP?

    Then it's a toss up between WatchDogs, ACIV, and... not sure what else I'm interested in. I like the look of both but I get too demotivated by open world games that are too open and don't have much story involved in it.

    So far my definites are:

    PS4 $433 (inc tax)
    PS Camera $65 (inc tax)
    Additional DS4 $65 (inc tax)
    = $565ish Now I'm not sure if I'll have enough saved up to front that cost, so may have to drop a DS4 off that list and bring it back down to $500.

    Games I want:
    FPS/MP:
    KZ4
    BF4
    CoD72

    SP games:
    Watch Dogs
    Assassins Creed 4

    3 games x $65 (inc tax) = $190 so I may need to wait a week or two till I get the third game. Ideally I'd like to get the MP games first, but the Vita remote play with Watch Dogs or AC4 would be fun.

    So who's getting what MP games and what priority would you guys put on playing them? So I can get the highest play time game from AV/sCud folk.

    I'm personally getting Killzone 4 as it looks amazing, BF4 will be on PC. I'm getting AC IV on release and Watchdogs at christmas I think.

    Why ghosts for XB? You don't think dedicated servers will come to PS4? Or some other reason?

    Just out of curiosity why does the camera trump other things...like another ds4 and games? I understand it has functionality but its optional so why not wait on that instead of shorting yourself somewhere else to have a camera that publishers probably won't fully utilize for quite a while anyway.

    Unless of course I missed the thread on the camera and what it can do making it worth the money? I admit I haven't really paid that close attention to things.

    Play room makes it easier to justify it to the wife (Kids are going to LOVE it) and also looking forward to the first party uses of the Camera. Tho I do want another controller so I can put a label it so they know it's MINE and not to touch, lol.

    With KZ being a launch title and while it may have measly DS4 Camera integration I think it'll be great for starting to get a feel for the Camera features and possibilities.

    And the more people that buy it, the more devs will develop for it.

    Yah, the kids will get a kick out of hitting that bot with their hands while they are sitting on the couch.

    I can already hear the wife... "It's still stupid and you're lame" lol.

    But she loves me, I swear it! Speaking of ball and chain... is yours giving you crap about gaming now that she firmly attached one to your leg? :laugh:

    Well, no. I hardly play much anymore. I did tell her I ordered a ps4 and a few games for a total of like 600$ and she just looked at me with that evil I'm going to go buy something expensive look and so far I'm waiting for that purchase and the bill to come with it.

    Price is right rules don't apply so I'm expecting north of 600 easily.... :rolleyes:

    I just fancy playing it on Xbox this year that's all, Playstation generally being an afterthought platform for Activision over the last few years has reduced any confidence I had.

    I think most are interested in KZ4, the usual muppets (Mark :)) are getting Ghosts.
    General consensus though is KZ4 with BF4.

    2 of the ones I'm looking at most so could mean good things for my partying up days.

    I might just wait to buy games and see what the prices are like on the PS Store cuz I like the fast swap ability.

    Mark, you should be going with KZ and BF! Aren't you tired of CoD? :)

    (Tho if dedicated servers are announced for PS4 then I might be tempted too)

    Cod has always offered great value for me, price v hours spent playing it. Especially IW. So no need to think this will be any different.

    The only way a PS4 would get in my house is the small falsehood I told my wife when I preordered it i.e. "it's a Christmas gift for my son". Silly woman bought it hook line and sinker hehe. Mind you my son who will be 10 plays on games more than me and is much better than me which is why I don't usually go online that much lol.

    I think KZ, ghosts and BF4 oh and watch dogs.

    Get KZ2 it's better.

    I'll be getting KZ4 and maybe BF4. As it stands I'll be skipping CoD this time round, based on what I've seen Activision need to learn some lessons before I fork out for their shooter again.
