Pc gamer looking to buy a console need some info

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi I am a pc gamer & my parents are buying a new tv so I thought I'd get a console cause not a lot of people are Steam gamers & I am not quitting Steam gaming I just want to do both ( I amware of that consoles run games on 30fps and majority of games on it are 720p or up-scaled 1080p & only a few are native 1080p )
So I've a plan for a ps4 I don't have a lot of knowledge in consoles I know somewhat though like ps4 has slim and fat versions but what are the pros and cons of both?
Which cable comes with ps3 & ps4 by default? is it A/V cable? I know you have to buy HDMI cable separately
is it possible for ps4 users to play with ps3 users online?
Is it possible for me to replace the existing storage drive with a larger one or a SSD? ( I know it would probably void the warranty but is it possible? )
Which controller should I use wired or wireless? cause on pc if you use wireless mouse and keyboard they lag in games
is it possible to play games with mouse and keyboard on consoles?

PS4 has more games at 900p/1080p than it does at 720p. 30fps is about right for most single player games; some of the multiplayer games I have played were ~60.

PS3, not sure. PS4 should come with an HDMI cable (at least I am pretty sure mine did).

I believe that PS3/PS4 crossplay is game specific with not many supporting it.

You can upgrade the HDD (to something larger or an SSD) without voiding the warranty. I remember early results of swapping it out with an SSD did not provide a significant speed boost (~10% faster at best).

I believe that the DS4 is only wireless, though you can use a long micro usb if you wanted to play with it while it is charging.

Final Fantasy (not sure which one) is (one of) the only game(s) I know of that you can use a mouse/keyboard with natively. You can always get an adapter (XIM/Keymander/etc) to map a keyboard to the ps4.
