(I am not looking for a flame/console war. I just want to ask owners/the community about some aspects of the game which may help me with my decision.)
So i’m looking to pick up this game but have a few queries for those who have already bought the game. I took part in the PS4 Beta and so know the general setup etc. I’m trying to decide between PC or PS4, below are my main concerns/queries between the two.
Essentially I have mild cerebral palsy which affects my left side. Due to the territory, even with ops and a ■■■■ ton of physio/other stuff over the years, my left hand is still slower than the average joes even with practise :P. Therefore, I find that for movement I am faster and generally more comfortable with an analog stick than WASD. I can still WASD to an extent but it’s slower and tiresome plus I struggle with diagonals such as S and A together.
Do you think my slow WASD will be a problem for me and cause me a handicap? If so i’m leaning towards PS4. I mean I could use a controller for my PC but I guess that would hinder me more?
I’m a sucker for smooth/high frame rates (60ish) and general PC gaming and this is generally my go to platform as I have a fairly decent rig. When I played the PS4 beta the menus seemed somewhat sluggish and the framerate seemed to go a bit choppy when massive teamfights were going on in pvp (I was playing as Rath). I know it runs at around 30 but is this now consistent/have these aspects been improved? I felt it kind of detracted from the game a bit as everything just seemed slightly off/slow. How does the PC version compare?
-Community and Lasting Audience
It seems that Gearbox are somewhat favoring the PS4 crowd with Battleborn and it seems likely that it is their flagship platform due to the early beta and character access etc. It is also probable that the PS4 will initially have the largest player base, thoughts? If so that is great for matchmaking etc
That said, which platform do we think will have the longest lasting player base? If this game has moba aspects do the devs expect it to last a long time? If so will the PS4’s lifecycle become a problem? I’m thinking PC will probably last the longest?
Hopefully I’ve conveyed my thoughts/questions fairly sensibly. What are owners/the communities thoughts on my questions and what version would best suit?
