The Playstation is the console of choice for Naughty Dog games, weebs, and anybody who enjoys High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection screwing up their Twitch streams.

The Playstation 4 started out as the best console to experience Playstation 3 remasters on, but now has developed a pretty good library of exclusive games of its own.
