"As much as I hate to admit it, it is true. As an Xbox fan, let me explain why. " - Shanklish, At7addak.com
Articles such as this are worthless until hard facts are known about the systems. A waste of time.
Well all I know is i have never seen any xbox this or last gen looking better than a playstation console.
so u think the super slim ps3 looks better than the xbox slim? i bet EVERY product designer on this planet will disagree...
Really. The original Xbox was more powerful than the PS2. OT, how can we possibly say which is the best when all we have is rumour and specualtion?
Blah, the slim Xbox is the nicest looking console to date, closing followed by the Phat Ps3 imo I'm not bothering to read the article but i'm sure he's not talking about how it looks haha
I could be wrong but wasn't the original Xbox slighty better, hardware-wise, than PS2? Built in HDD, reliable, great performance. Not sure how MS ended up going so wrong with 360, guess it paid off for them though. Edit: Damn someone beat me to it.
@hand the original xbox came out one year after the ps2 and the ps4 specs don't seem so out there that it can't possible be true.
LOOL look at all the fanboys thinking I am talking about looks in the sense of design. I was speaking gaming content boys and girls the one thing that makes consoles look good or bad LOl.
You're talking about those static, QTE type linear games with fixed camera angles with a lack of social features. Gotcha ya! On topic Should I even read which rumored specs and made up propaganda the author is talking about in his opionion. Wonder if he's talking about the leaked 720 docs of old internal plans or the ones made up with lesser specs to spin the doc specs. Perhaps he's quoting the same source that revealed 120fps, 1080p, 4D, 10x moer powerful than a super computer for PS3? No wait those were not random rumors that came from Sony themselves.
^^^ "You're talking about those static, QTE type linear games with fixed camera angles with a lack of social features. Gotcha ya!" Gears and Halo are still linear. -_-
The Xbox 720 is looking to get stomped in the next round of consoles. - Sources say, the PS4 is going to be a more powerful machine - Sony has far more exclusive games than Microsoft, and this time around they are all well known games, not new IPs - PS Plus is a hit and gives phenomenal value for money, while Live is a rip-off - Sources say that the Xbox 720 won't be able to play used games, which is going to be disastrous for Microsoft
Oh yeah? Well Apple Pippin 2 will destroy all of them! Not that we have details on any of them, but so what? IT'S PIPPIN, MAN.
Wake up kid, the first XBOX was 3 times more powerfull than ps2, stop troling! https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@BattleAxe "Sources say........" and we all know how reliable that is.
were so close to each other from technical specs that i dont think we will see it that close again. If anything, there had never been a console generation where the biggest combatants were so evenly matched that the line between them blurred many times. I mean looking at previous systems, genesis vs snes, there were obvious graphical advantages the snes had but yet the genesis was able to hold its own and beat nintendo a few times at their own game. Ms really wanted to make a name for themselves and they did with the 360. sony certainly had to rethink their strategy when it looked as if their market dominance was being threatened. It reminds me of those old days of sega vs nintendo. this time around, im sure both will deliver a suitable successor to their existing platform. It will be more about substance rather than specifications. They are looking to outsmart one another where it counts. That would be content and content delivery. I have a strong feeling this new gen will be more about taking on the competition of not only each other but of the ever increasing world of "smart" devices around us. Finding more ways of bridging those gaps and offering more conveniences from these platforms than before.
Sonic, your comments are--I think a parrot could come up with something more intelligent, I think you've been drinking Sony kool-aid all your life and nothing but that.
it wont even be a contest. PS4 will destroy the next xbox, yes you heard it here first.
ima have to go with 555 on this one.
@WrAiTh Sp3cTr3 "I think a parrot could come up with something more intelligent" Uh, what does my comment have to do anything you just said?? I was was just merely stating a fact in reply to greenpowerz. And if you want to talk about drinking a specific company's "kool-aid". Maybe you should look at his comments first... Coming from a guy who's name looks typed by a kid with Dyslexia bashing his head on a keyboard. LMAO i'M sURpRIZEd U Ddon'Ts Tyypezz yOOR zEntenSEs LYKe THEEEEEES!
Only on N4G can you gain a bubble for "well said" despite having 109 disagrees. As many have said its impossible to come to any conclusion yet. Even with the rumoured specs it seems both consoles are pretty identical anyway so its hard to agree with the article. Lets just wait and see.
We will now very soon so hold tight for good news very soon !
The fact that classic200 gets a "well said" bubble for his trolling says everything we need to know about most of the N4G community. He comes in and trolls against Xbox, gets applauded, then several comments below CALLS OUT FANBOYS!? What!? WTF is wrong with you people!?
IDK about these types of articles since I'm getting both.
"IDK about these types of articles since I'm getting both" I meant "I don't care about these types of articles since I'm getting both."
This articles are a joke. Why not wait for the systems to be announced or released with their games... then make a article. It would make sense and would make the article writer look smart. Gaming journalism is going down the drain.
Because that doesn't draw attention and sadly that seems to be the main theme in gaming journalism these days.
@fermcr: "Gaming journalism is going down the drain." This doesn't qualify as journalism at all, and is really an opinion piece on a blog site. @Godmars290: Well, I'll be damned! Well said and like taken right out of my mouth. There is nothing to discuss until the consoles are revealed, and in fact, you won't even know until the console is released for sometime to see the strategy and value pan out. I will most likely get both consoles anyhow, and eventually the Wii U when it drops in price. One of them will get the most use, and that depends on what they are offering all around.
well said @Godmars290 +bubble
Nice to see a sensible comment up top for a change.
more powerful, more classic controller = winner(games ofcasue made better with classic controller)
More classic = better? I don't think so, and as far as specs are concerned, everything is only speculation. Only time will tell.
I agree. But i think the writing is on the wall. All the article is saying is that each console will maintain the trajectory they are currently on. Playstation has invested in games. They have many studios that produce high quality games just for the playstation. It does alot more too but its focus even at the end of a generation remains on games. Microsoft has made it quite clear that they want to create an entertainment device, or an extension of the pc on your TV. They created a new OS that works better on xbox and tablets. This is key because thats where the majority of their money is made and they must stay ahead of the curve before pcs become obsolete. I think they can do both but they have chosen to keep their gaming alive by buying timed exclusives. It wont work forever and they are learning that momentum can change quite rapidly. I just think that multitasking isnt the answer, hence the extra RAM. Only time will tell.
This. Let's face it, the people queing at midnight for new consoles are the gamers and tech nuts. Multimedia apps won't impress them as much as MS seem to think, greats games will. If MS can muster up something new and exciting in gaming then the core crowd that bought into 360 at the beginning of this generation will be less inlclined to abandon ship. So far we have little to no clue as what they have in store but rumors would suggest a focus on multimedia over games, which I think is a mistake as a gamer.
@Godmars...You nailed it. So many of these articles are trash. "Our UNKNOWN SOURCES INFORM US..." Until it's confirmed, not a single one of us knows the final specifications of either system
