    Luckily my brother has a PS4 so I was able to buy and play The Last Of Us. But completely agree, if you've got the cash to splash then PC is the way forward.

    You're aware that you can use a controller on most games that are suited to it (i.e. cross platform with consoles) right?

    Although if it's a competitive shooter, you'll get wrecked by those with KB+M, which isn't ideal.

    One thing that annoys me about modern consoles is the lack of backwards compatibility. If I buy an old game and play it on a new pc, it's fine, but i PS3 game on the PS4, for some reason that's impossible. I wish my Wii U could play gamecube games.

    I can still play Theme Hospital on any modern PC.

    I'm 50/50 on this.

    I agree, in principal.

    On the other hand, while it is something I've moaned about at length before, once I have my new console I never really want to play any older games.

    Likewise, given that there was bespoke hardware, it made sense somewhat. Now that everything is just PC parts, there should be no excuses for no backwards compatibility.
