Hi, I'm Rob. I'm a gamer, and I'm a YouTube producer. I make videos for two of my channels. They're called Rob Plays That Game and Rob Plays Those Games. The former focuses on Minecraft related, while the latter focuses on everything video game related that isn't Minecraft. Uh, I've been a gamer my entire life. Uh, I cannot remember a point when I wasn't playing games. I like to consider myself an equal-opportunity gamer. I've played it. Consoles, hand-held, PC, Mac, phones. I think if it can run a game, it can be enjoyed by somebody out there.
Board games, you name it. There's a game that somebody will enjoy, and I think, uh, my love of gaming stems from finding the enjoyment within that. I love getting into an immersive world that, sort of, lets you step away from the real world and experience this insane story and these insane characters and I think as technology gets better, it only allows developers to make an even more immersive world to step into. Which is why I consider myself an early adopter. I had the Playstation 4 day one, and, you know, budget willing, I would have had an XBox 1 day one as well. I don't think that there's any value in the console wars. I think there's great games on everything. And it's worth exploring, and it's worth telling people about, because what's interesting is that anybody can be a gamer. There was, sort of, this stigma for so many years that it was this anti-social, nerdy hobby.
But the truth of the matter is, most of the world plays games now. Especially with things like the iPhone. Uh, you might not consider yourself a gamer, but you really are, as long as you're playing something out there. And hopefully, taking, you know, a look at something like the Playstation 4 might get you to try something, might get you to experience that one story that clicks with you, and really resonates with you, and gets you into this hobby which is really rewarding, and fantastic. And if you want to check out any one of my number of videos on YouTube, I have youtube.com/robplaysthatgame, which is again, everything and anything Minecraft related, and I also have youtube.com/robplaysthosegames, which is anything gaming related that isn't Minecraft.
Host: So, today, we're going to be taking a look at the Playstation 4. Everything from how to set it up, to how to play the games, how to use some of its lesser-known features, so that you get the most out of your new console experience, or if you're just still shopping around, you could decide if the Playstation 4's the console for you.
