  • Re: Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- one of life's gilty pleasures

    So here's a fun question, though it may have already been discussed: For those of you who own or will own both PS3 and PS4, which platform will you buy Xrd on?

    Here are the advantages of each as I see them:

    PS3
    Much larger user base, including friends who won't own PS4 for awhile
    Arcade Stick compatibility
    Convenience (all my fighting games are already on PS3, don't want to bring 2 consoles to meet-ups)
    May be tournament standard due to above (if there's performance parity)

    PS4
    Better visuals, possibly better performance
    Record/edit/upload footage at system level
    Twitch streaming out of the box
    Better online features (System level, like party chat)
    MAYBE they'll support legacy sticks (Sony has commented that this was up to developers and so far we only have Injustice to go by and it did not)
    Time to start making the console transition, eventually fighting games will stop coming to PS3 anyway

    I'm leaning PS4 as it is a far better machine to play games on and I see a lot of potential for the FGC with its recording and streaming functions. But it is totally inconvenient to have to straddle this awkward period where most people don't own one yet. And probably needing a new stick is pretty lame. But what the hell did I buy a PS4 for if I'm not going to buy games for it?
