Default Is "Until Dawn" a good enough reason to buy a PS4?

I don't have a PS4 yet, but I am a sucker for survival horror.

Have any of you played this? Is it good? Good enough to warrant buying another console?

Are there any other horror games that are exclusive to the PS4 to entice me to buy one?

No. I would never purchase a console for just ONE game...unless that game was created by Smilebit*.

Buy a console because of its culture and its library. Does its library or way of doing things interest you? Does it line up with how you want to game or experience content? Then, buy the one that best matches your POV.

*I bought the OG Xbox because of Jet Set Radio Future and Panzer Dragoon Orta. OG Xbox was more or less Dreamcast 2. I loved it. Also, hacking the OG Xbox allowed you to experience what the 360 and 180 would implement in the future. I support any console that gives you the ability to hack it. Whether it's supported by the manufacturer or not. I really wish modern consoles would allow to FTP a data backup.

I really think you should edit the spoiler out of the first line.

I edited his opening line. I, honestly, missed it when I first replied.

I am not sure what is supposed to have been a spoiler. I don't know anything at all about the game, so I am absolutely confused as to how I could have posted anything even remotely like a spoiler.

There's nothing "survival" about UD, it's more of an interactive movie where you make decisions and influence what occurs. There's numerous branches and the ending for one person could be way different than someone else.
It can be creepy and times and some jump scares are well done.

I played about an hour and couldn't force myself to continue but I instead chose to clear map icons from mad mex because I'm compulsive.

As mentioned, don't buy a console for one title

I feel like Michealo on this one, I also tried but couldn't get into the game and instead went back to clear question marks in The Witcher 3.

I wouldn't say not to buy a system because of one game. I bought the Xbox just to get Knights of the Old Republic.

Bloodborne
It's not survival horror but I found many sections to be pretty scary, but that's me.

I think Bloodborne IS a console seller IMO.

I looked it up and THIS interests me greatly:

"Bloodborne was partially inspired by classic H.P. Lovecraft..."
