I have finally bought a PS4! I have always been a Nintendo man and I can’t see that changing any time soon, but as I branch out into the crazy world of streaming and YouTubing, I feel it’s time to pop my Playstation cherry.
For those interested, on Black Friday I picked up the following from GAME:
- PS4 Slim (in black)
- Call of Duty: World War II
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Gran Turismo Sport
- 2nd controller (in a rather fetching red!)
The whole thing came to £268.02. I might have been able to get a better deal if I searched online, but to be honest I'm very lazy and was happy just to take the whole bundle home and plug it in!
One thing that I think Nintendo are missing a trick on when compared to Microsoft and Sony is a satisfying achievements system. I am a completionist and take great joy in 100 percenting a game. An achievement system simply increases what 100% means, and therefore increases the longevity of the experience.
PS4 has a trophy system that not only rates the challenge difficulty, but also shows how rare the trophies are. It might just be a game that hardly anyone plays and this increases the rarity.
For upcoming videos, I will focus on getting the very last trophy of each game I play. Invariably it they will drive me a bit insane, and if it’s one thing I’ve learnt from my favourite Youtube channels is that a gamer's stress is highly entertaining, so I’m happy to share these mini breakdowns with you all!
I'm also going to do a little blog update, maybe once a month, to discuss what trophies I'm working on and in which games.
If you want to add me up on PSN, my name is wobwobrob . What games should I be playing right now? Let me know!
