    What do you love/hate about the PS4?

    Title says it all. Was wondering what you guys would reply

    Here's mine;

    Love
    - Graphics. I'm honestly impressed with the graphics the PS4 can give us. As a PC user, I am used to better graphics, but still the PS4 gets really high standards now and I'm impressed.
    - Fast loading/no loading times. Really nice option where you're able to play continuously instead of having to wait so long to load another level.
    - Potential. Stupid as it may sound, I love the fact that device has a lot of potential. I just hope the devs also use it.

    Hate
    - Automatic install of games. I know this is done for the loading times, but at least give us a bigger hard drive from the start... 500 gb, let's say games are about 50, 10 games and the drive's already filled. That is, if you don't have more installed on there... Disappointed there.
    - CD usage. Since games do install on the PS4, why do they make you use the CD when you bought it physically? Why not make a system that detects whether or not it's legally bought and install a no-CD crack as well? Would've been a nice addition.
    - UI bar. Would be nice to have the option for maps and have the option to hide things; I'll probably never use TV, Music or whatever, so why not give me the option to hide it? Would be shortening the bar and it wouldn't be in the way for me.

    I love how fast it is to enter and exit the playstation store, the accessibility of different things on the PS4 is great, although I do wish that they had something similar to the Xbox so when a trophy popped you could press the playstation button and it would show information about that trophy.

    The store is never fast for me. It hangs on a blue screen for up to 5 minutes sometimes. Am I alone with this?

    I love how easy and quick it is to reply to msgs and that its all condensed into a chatroom setup rather then an individual letters format. Also like that the Storefront is usable now unlike how its a slow loading pos on the PS3.

    Things I dont like.. Hmm
    *Full install of disk based games bugs me. I feel it is them in a way gently trying to nudge people towards going digital honestly.
    You have to install the whole thing anyways why not just download it? O_o

    *I dont think that the games that are installed from disk should show on the ui unless the disk is in the system. Just takes up space for no reason. You just get a whole bunch of games icona thrown into the long list that you cant click on n play if the disk isnt inserted.

    *The UI Needs a file/folder system. I dont like how everything just gets thrown into a super long horizontal list.

    *I also dont like how under the media section it shows all the apps you dont have aswell as the ones you do. Should be able to hide those.

    *Need to beable to clear the notifications panel...

    *Be nice if my PS3 friends knew I'm online if I'm on the PS4. I can see them so why shouldnt they see me? Also a small icon indicating what system they are on as well would be nice. Its like that on the Vita.

    Love: Dualshock 4, to me it is the best. Not only the feeling of it in my hands but the built in speaker, and headphone jack. Ability to send all of the sound to your headphones, can use the headphones that I already have with built in mic as my gaming mic now too. it feels weird to go back and use the DS3. The speed of the menu system and the PS store. Photo modes and video mode. Remote Play is amazing as well.

    Hate: Can't do custom background, still no in-game custom music (w/o Music Unlimited), can't pause downloads.

    all in all the good outweighs the bad so I am very happy with my PS4, just waiting for the onslaught of games at the end of this year beginning of next.
    Hard work never killed nobody but I ain't taking any chances

    I really love the Dualshock 4 controller, best controller ever! Sometimes - when I'm watching a movie or listening to music - I just hold the controller in my hands. Even when I'm not using my PS4 lol.
    Beside that, I love almost everything of the PS4. I love the graphics, I love the design, I love how fast it is, I love the social features, I love the share-button. I love PS4!

    One thing that annoys me would be the UI. It would be nice to have more rows. I don't like to keep scrolling when you're looking for a game.

    What I love- Quick, easy to use UI, graphics, controller, online gaming seems to be a lot more stable than it was on ps3, voice chat clarity and so much potential for the future.

    What I don't like and what it needs- the UI needs some tweaks to reduce clutter, friend notifications when they first go on/offline, mp3 support, more music apps like amazon mp3 and pandora, cd support, and custom backgrounds.

    LOVES:

    The Dualshock 4 is a great controller.

    The speed of menus, game loading and menus frees up so much time for play.

    The graphics are so $#@!ing good it makes me cry.

    HATES:

    The fact that friends on PS3 can't see that I'm on my PS4 is absurd and annoying.

    No real backward compatibility.

    No option to post a comment up with your name like we were able to do on the PS3.

    No YouTube app. Another a step backward from the PS3.

    Zero ability to customize the wallpaper. Yet again, a step back from the damned PS3! What the Hell!?

    The UI is absolutely horrible. An endless row of icons of every game or app you've ever played in no particular sensible order. It's as if a child designed it. I feel angry and insulted every time I interact with it.

    Finally, the lack of ability to play digital audio or video files is absolutely enraging. It's a huge retrogression from the PS3 that cuts us off from so much of the experience of what the system could be all to try to bully us into paying for their damned Music Unlimited. It's a complete insult and an incredible obstruction to the fun we deserve for purchasing this potentially high-end entertainment system. Very disappointing. I still mainly play on my PS3 and much prefer it.

    I honestly can't think of anything i hate with the PS4. It's a beautifully designed console, the DS4 got so much better. It's a powerhouse of a machine. The only thing lacking right now is the exclusive games but we all know those are coming. Sony did everything right with the PS4. As much as i loved the PS3 this is what that console should have been.

    Love - the DS4, switching back to PS3 just feels so cheap in comparison.
    Live with Playstation, just brilliant how integrated and seamless it all is.
    Quick installs and background patching etc Really hated buying a PS3 game and having to wait for ages for it to either install or download a new patch

    Hate - Lack of media capabilities.

    Hate:
    - DS4 rubber vaporized while playing towerfall.
    - Voice chat still consists of background noise or nothing at all.. I *will* mute you if I contantly hear you talking with family.
    - Complaints about lack of games in launch year.

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]

    I as well honestly can't think of anything I hate about the PS4, the new controller is one of the best I have ever used, the interface is easy to navigate although it would be nice to be able to organise your games etc! It's a very sleek looking console and some of the exclusives are looking very exciting so all in all I am finding it very hard to complain. The only thing I would say is the lack of backwards compatibility is slightly annoying but hopefully this will be sorted with PS Now and the emulator for PS1 and PS2 games that is allegedly in the works!

    Love and Hate are too strong words, imo. I would rather say that I Like or Dislike some things about the PS4.

    Like:

    - The DS4, best controller I've used so far, a big step up from the DS3.
    - The fast and responsive interface.
    - The graphics and performance in (most) high end games.
    - The share function, I really like that I can take screenshots or save videos of my gameplay.

    Dislike:

    - That you can't organise the main menu.
    - That there's no media playback (mp3, cd, youtube and so on).
    - That you can't paus downloads.
    - That PS3 users can't see me when I'm online on my PS4, I still have a lot of friends that only have a PS3.

    Other than that, there's not much I have to say at the moment. There's a lack of high end games at the moment, but the games will come eventually. Can't wait until next month when Destiny is released.

    That's a common problem with the rubber on the joysticks. Fortunately, everyone who has this problem will get a new controller

    Ohh how'd that slip my mind. The battery life of the DS4 blows. I have my 2 controllers on constant rotation because I cant even get a day out of one. My DS3 and even my launch day SixAxis still can go damn near a week+ on a single charge. XD

    Nope. The store is a bit of a lucky dip. Ds4 battery sucks ass, even with the lights dimmed.

    I like the sharing and streaming features. The UI looks nice but could do with some improving. We badly need media support. It would also be nice if the DS4 battery lasted more than a few hours. The ability to change a PSN ID should really have been made available by now. The store can be fussy, sometimes it'll load in a decent amount of time, most of the time it'll take an age.

    Yeah I have no idea what went on with that, the Ps3 pads where killer in terms of battery life - second only to Wii U pro pad. Only need to charge them about once ever few weeks.
