Advice on which console for a PC player

None, wait until it comes out on PC instead of choosing an inferior version. 

I'm afraid I'm the type of muppet who buys the game on the console and then later on the PC. But I get enough enjoyment out of R* titles I don't mind.

 

I'm not thinking of getting it purely for RDR2 btw. I like to have a racing and footie game in the living room. But RDR2 seems like a good excuse to upgrade.

Considering how broken the original RDR was on the ps3, I would wait for reviews to come in

Don't worry mate, RDR1 was just in a bad state (programming wise) and developing games for the PS3 was pretty difficult.

Im in the same boat two. I've been a PC convert since moving from PS3 to PC at the launch of the PS4 so as far as consoles go now I dont have a clue whats for me now. Im severely tempted to get a PS4 next month because it would be a natural progression having owned Playstations all my life and it would be pretty good to see my old friends list active again on PSN but all this expense just to play one game is something I thought i'd never even consider doing but here I am!  😂

It's why I recommended looking at the exclusives, if a few of them look like fun then you're gonna get way more value out of the console than simply buying it for one game, which is kinda hard to justify unless you're wadded. Although, recommending an Xbox when you own a gaming PC is kinda hard these days because of Microsoft's (amazing, I should add) policy of bringing their first party games to PC, albeit they've not confirmed if the new Halo is coming yet.

Thanks for the advice (I wish I was wadded!), Im thinking of going the PS4 route. I had a big friends list on PSN and I know a few of them moved to PS4 so thats a big draw for me in the PS4's direction. I know a few other games id play and the the Playstation is more familiar to me anyway. Theres also the media aspect of it, I never set my PS3 up to watch DVD's/Blu Rays because its a cumbersome system but with the PS4 it will sit on my desk neatly.

Xbox One X has more power but the differences with the PS4 pro are visually very small..With the PS4 exclusives in mind...Go for the PS4 pro👍

Not always. For games go watch some Digital Foundry comparison videos. There's enough raw power difference that should show a visible difference. If there only small differences then the developer either had a marketing agreement with Sony or they just didn't do a good job of taking advantage of the extra power. Plus, he asked about game recording & it's 4K on the XB1X versus 1080p on the PS4 Pro. That's a huge difference.

I've never personally purchased an Xbox machine going all the way back to the original. I was gifted a PS2 by my parents in my early teens and sort of just kept going the Sony + PC route. Naturally I went with the PS3 next, got it on launch day when I was 18. Got the PS4 at launch and then down the road upgraded to Pro. I just like Sony's interface, their games library, the general culture of gaming for this brand and how it was handled over the years better. Plus all my good Playstation friends I've known since 2007, and still hang with online to this day. I'd say PS4 Pro all the way. I've had both and contrary to what some people may say, there is definitely a difference in quality between regular and Pro.

 

 

By the way not to be an ass but PS3 came out in 2006, you wrote you've had one since 2004. Unless you're an insider developer who had access to prototypes I kinda lol'd.

Thanks to everyone for the advice.

 

If anyone is interested, I went for an Xbox One X. My decision was governed by the following:

 

Whilst Sony have better exclusive games, I don’t have time to get into many. I want a racing game and a footy game for the living room, and I want RDR 2 plus maybe new R* titles.

 

Although not all games full utilise the performance, since it has been over a decade since I’ve upgraded my console, I’m banking on the Xbox One Xs superior specs giving it greater longevity (6 teraflops to the 4.2 of the PS4 Pro).

 

Then add in the fact that I have more real life friends on the Xbox and I got the X with Forza and RDR 2 Special Edition for £400 (and a £50 amazon voucher in my pocket) that sealed the deal.

 

If I planned to get a lot more games I’d have leaned more towards the PS4 pro but that’s not the case.

Dang, I missed this thread!!!

 

Was gonna say I've read many of your posts in the GTA section and would have loved to have potentially meet you on PSN out there, lol. But I can't fault you here @Jimbatron. Forza pisses on GT, lol. (IMHO).

 

Still, one day perhaps if this cross platform thing grows. Could be epic then. Enjoy the game though. :)

^ Cheers!

 

Yeah there do seem to be more PS4ers on here that I know and that gave me food for thought. But I’m not sure I will be play much RDR 2 online console at all because I’m crap at shooting with a controller! More likely to play fifa or forza online with friends from uni who don’t live so close anymore.
