PS4 is good because it's the top tier, and, as such, gets the attention from developers. Games do definitely look better. But, at this point, it's new enough that, unless you're super hardcore and going to use the few new features that it offers (party chat, easy ways to share screenshots or video of games, probably quite a few other things that I don't care about), it probably isn't worth the cash.

Feature-wise it sucks. It can't do many things the PS3 can do. That includes streaming from networked devices and even playing music from any source other than their own Music Unlimited. That means no spotify app (don't think ps3 did that either, though), no mp3s in attached usb drives, even no playing music cds. That part is more lame because it's so transparent what they're trying to do.

In short: It's a completely fine machine for playing games and definitely a step up from the PS3. But, aside from saying, "Holy shit, that looks fantastic" right when you boot up select games for the first time (the "holy shit" factor wears off pretty quickly on a game-by-game basis), it isn't going to really knock your socks off. For doing anything other than gaming, it's going to need quite a few system updates before it competes with the PS3.
