    Oh trust me, I know a pc is better. But when a console is slower then a console that is technically weaker. That is just, bad.

    The internet browser on the PS4 is BAD not as bad as internet explorer 6 but still pretty bad. I will start with the little things., It is slower then the Wii U's browser (Wii U is an inferior console in terms of processing power.) Scrolling on the PS4 has been dumped down. While the PS3's browser wasn't as good. At least it could scroll smoothly. When you get too much cache on your browser, the browser will load slower, and when you type it takes for ever for the PS4 to register the letter that you have selected.

    The playstation 1's Spyro/Crash beats most of Nintendo games in terms of fun and quality. I tend to get bored of Mario faster then getting bored of Spyro. Because Mario tends to reuse the same enemies and same gameplay. Not including spin ops. Spyro does use the same concepts but there are also little challenges which kinda give the the player a break away from the game.
