Disadvantages of PS4

1. Lack of next-gen vision, still relying on disc swapping (or going digital download wholesale, which I will if I go PS4 as I hate disc swapping), UI smoothness and usability still and unknown quantity, media functionality undetailed and general historical poor form on these fronts (even as recently as the Vita) do not bode well for a slick, usable ecosystem

2. General lack of reliability when it comes to online services and updates – this morning it was announced that the latest PS3 firmware was bricking some PS3s. Seven years into this console and five months away from the next this sets off serious alarm bells for me as to Sony’s competence in this area.

3. Much less servers to rely on for cloud functionality

4. Throwing their one innovation under the bus to score cheap points. They drop the Eye so they can be £80 rather than £20 cheaper than Xbxo and instantly make it an irrelevance. Developers won’t support it if they don’t know every console has it.

5. Small box with little ventilation makes me think this will either be a) a noisy system with powerful fans or b) prone to overheating

6. Lack of launch window exclusive games that really appeal. Only SecondSon and The Order: 1886 really appeal to me and it’s a bit depressing that the two launch titles I would likely buy – Watchdogs and FIFA 14 – would both be on Xbox One as well.

7. Lack of support for external hard drives. No matter how much Sony fan boys may insist on it – the ability to replace the hard drive is not a better feature. In an ideal world I’d want both features, but just being able to replace the hard drive means you are paying for something you will eventually dispose of. If I want 2tb+ on day one, for Xbox One I add an external and then have 2.5tb, nothing wasted. On PS4 I replace the internal hard drive with a 2tb model and then I have basically paid for a 500gb hard drive I have no further use for. If I do it further down the road I have to go through the laborious process of transferring data over, whereas with Xbox One I simply add more, keeping everything where it is on the internal one. Sorry Sony fanboys, this is a worse situation to be.

So in all, for me, Xbox One is the more exciting system with slick and usable services and UI and (so far) the better games – but has some deal-breaking drawbacks. PS4 is the safer and risk-


Let us know, if  you found any other Cons of PS4. Please feel free to comment. Thanks for reading PS4 Disadvantages


  1. Speculation and haterade spewed forth from an Xbox Fanboy who’s upset the PS4 pwned his favorite console this coming generation.

  2. PS4 is for idiots and PS4 hasn’t pwned XBOX ONE and XBOX ONE will be far better than PS4.

    Ps4 only has good thing is that,it’s gaming AND graphics.
    Ps4 controller is not good.
    Because,it has touch pad in controller,
    If touch pad got broken by any miss useas
    It can effect the entire network/Ps4.
    If a touchscreen of an ipod gets damage
    the iPod

  5. PS4 is worth it!!!

  6. my view on the ps4 are that follow the ps4 is much faster than the ps3 you can connect to ps4 multiplayer games without getting disconnected there is hardly any lag in the multiplayer servers and a hole other good things about the ps4 but i really wanted to talk about the down falls of the ps4 such as the ps4 controllers dont last as long as the ps3 controllers did you cant even play ps3 games on the ps4 but yet on the ps3 you could play some ps2 and ps1 games on the ps3 the least they could do is make ps3 games compatiable with the ps4 when there is an update to the game or eg the system the take you out of the game.

  7. xbox one is bad says:
