Re-Masters - Next-Gen Backwards Compatibility?

I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

And I'm not sure what to think. No media server , too broke tobuy any games so I'm playing demos, lack of PS4 content on the store, lack of games. Why did I do this?!? WHY? POR QUE?!?!

Haha fair enough. Apparently not disposable enough if I didn't get a game!

I did get that though! So far Mercenary Kings is all I can get though.

Looks like I can swing a game right now. It's either BF4, Infamous Second Son, Tomb Raider (I'm half way through on the PC though), Rayman Legends but I'd be playing by myself...

The fringe games for me are NBA 2K14 and Fifa. I like playing sports games but feel they get repetitive. I'm also considering Killzone and I heard Knack was underrated.

If Ground Zeroes was longer I'd consider that one.

Infamous Second Son is good.

If you haven't played Assassin's Creed IV: Blackflag yet, I would recommend that too.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is awesome but yeah, it's short. I would suggest either waiting for that game to drop in price, or hopefully getting it for free via other means.

Im going to wait for a couple of gems to come out before I get one. I also want to wait for games that are just current gen and not last gen as well. Not wanting to get into techno-bable here, but I think there's a plateau for the current gen's capabilities when they're also releasing it for the PS3/360.

Knacks really fun. Its a good casual game, but if your wife would like to play with you then its a great co-op game.

Haha funny thing is I was tempted to buy a 2nd GTX 770 for SLI instead of a PS4. I also could have bought a 780ti, sold my GTX 660 and still only spent about 350-400 dollars.

Oh well!

I've been playing a few demos and Warframe which isn't all that bad.

I may check Knack out. I signed up for a month trial of gamefly and the first game sent to me is Ground Zeroes. I'm sure I'll skip the cutscenes, beat it in like 2 hours and send it back this week.

Oh wow. That's an awesome score. I'm pretty confident you'll enjoy MGSV: Ground Zeroes but I also believe you'll finish it quickly, maybe play some of the side ops and then send it back on time. Razz

Haha yeah. I want to watch the cut scenes but I also want to maximize my free month.

In all honesty man the cut scenes aren't that bad this time around. The intro sequence is probably somewhere between five to ten minutes in length and then the cut scene at the end of the main campaign is fairly long, I'd say ten to fifteen minutes tops... but that being said, the cut scenes are nothing (in terms of length) compared to say, MGS4.

A lot of the radio dialogue as well doesn't pause the game. Radio contact now happens in real time while you play.

Don't worry Lethean. You'l maximize that free month of yours. Razz

As long as they aren't MGS4 long I'm happy!

I'mm seriously considering buying A Realm Reborn but I don't see myself committing to a monthly subscription. Seems rather silly to spend 40 dollars on a game I may only play for the duration of a month.

It's all good man, the cut scenes of MGSV are not MGS4 long.

I noticed A Realm Reborn came out for PS4. I'm gonna give it a miss. Personally I don't have time for MMOs and whatnot. The only MMO I'm interested in is The Elders Scrolls Online, and I'm scared of playing that fearing I'll love it and get sucked into the game. Razz
