From Super Mario Brothers to Call of Duty, video games give us tremendous enjoyment but with that pleasure comes plight in the form of the actual gaming consoles.
With the release of PlayStation 4 roughly two months away, the question that abounds is one that wonders aloud not so much the quality or amazement of the video game consoles but rather the reasoning behind their arrivals: Is it really worth upgrading to a new console system, in this case PlayStation 3 to 4?
Now of course, the makers of PlayStation 4 have little doubt within their own walls regarding the reason for the release: sales revenue and profit. What likely will retail for between $400-500 certainly translates into a fantastic fourth quarter for Sony in 2013 or the first quarter of 2014. Sony undoubtedly will hit the marketing hard as the holiday season arrives, and consumers certainly will be waiting in line to buy the latest and greatest piece of video game technology.
But suppose you're on the fence and you don't have an extra $500 lying around or a penchant for putting up a nice chunk of change for PS4. Despite commercials and online ads suggesting otherwise, you shouldn't feel guilty for passing on PS4, especially if you already own a PS3.
Truth be told, the general consensus as far as this particular upgrade from Sony or video game system upgrades in general is that the benefits or changes hardly justify the cost involved. Ask any video gaming guru about the changes from PS3 to 4 and the response probably will go something like this: "Not much."
