PS4 looks great, just like PC. Maybe with a higher end card it might look a little better on PC. Its more up to you I play on PC with a X360 controller, so if you going to main controller id still say either will work. Your PC wont have any issues running the game, but if your looking for a reason to boot up the PS4 i couldn't think of a better one biggrin.gif. You can play it on both switching between PC and PS4 just have to buy a copy of each and link them to one account.

PC is supposed to be getting a DX11 upgrade "Soon after PS4 Launch" not sure if the PS4 will get that update. If not the PC will maybe look that much better.

I would be using Keyboard and Mouse, i tried it with controller and it was SO complicated and terrible to control things with the PS4 controller. With that in mind it makes it a bit harder to decide what to get it on. Buying the game would be cheaper on PC, like half the price of the Collectors Edition compared to the PS4 version its like £35 Vs £60

I still haven't played it, but I feel like the general consensus is that MMOs are best played on PC. Maybe this one is different, but my bet would be that this doesn't break the norm. But hey, if you liked it on PS4 and can get it cheaper there you'll probably be a happy camper either way.

Might be a bit late, but anyone else having low GPU usage issues?

Framerate is mostly fine, most times, even if the usage only peaks around 60% or so. But when it's cases like in the middle of a city at peak time with 30 or so player on screen, I KNOW I will get a fps hit, sure. But it'd seem the card is still working at only 50 to 60% under this scenario, and sometimes won't even boost clock? Or am I experiencing CPU bottleneck, which I find very unlikely?

I think its due to whatever server lag they're getting on their end... I'm having the same issue with my 670 and my gf can barely play in dungeons sometimes due to the lag/long loading screens/general slowdown since the new patch.

They did release 2.21 last night so it might have fixed it.

I've been trying to figure out this very same thing myself, whether I'm getting a possible CPU or GPU bottleneck. Playing at 5760x1080 so I expect the hit in overcrowded areas, but during those times when it drops to 20~ FPS both GPU and CPU appear to only be in the 50% range... hard to tell if the game is more gpu or cpu bound. Most areas are fine and the gpu is at full usage, but in cities (mostly Mor Dhona) usage and fps both drop like a brick...

I started playing last night and tried all races. The animations and world design turned me off instantly.

I was greeted with some low quality ship scenes and silent characters.
Not to mention the inability to skip long scenes. This started to be really annoying at my third character creation.

Once I entered the world, I was forced to talk to the guy in front of me by invisible walls.
I tried to explore the city and I realized I couldn't jump in the water...

I got out of the city to look for some combat. Killed some ladybugs aaaaand ALT+F4.
For me, the game feels like a journey back to 2006. Paying a monthly fee for this complete lack of usability is insulting.

Blade and Soul quality is what I was expecting. That game really impressed me last year.
Details, details, details....

I guess it's back to Guild Wars 2 and waiting for Everquest Next.

Out of curiosity, why did you build so many different characters? What's the point when you're not locked into any jobs/classes?

As above, why did you have to create many characters? One character can do all classes and jobs, and are not locked down. You can instantly switch classes and gear sets given you have them.

The only cutscene unskippable are the beginning scenes.

If you're going to judge a game based on early combat, skipping the story, and comparing to other games this quick, then I can only say "good luck", my friend.

Other things I am not going to judge on.
