PS4 and Xbox 720: How They Must Compete For a Changing Market

theBitFix writes: We live in curious time, my friends. Since PS3 and 360's launches the world has changed mightily and games are as numerous as they are cheap. It's a brave new world out there for next-gen consoles and they better be bringing their A-game if they hope to take over our living rooms this time. (Microsoft, Next-Gen, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

These consoles will do fine.

Lol true, I'm getting both to support both sides.

LMFAO!!! The other competition doesn't have KillZone 4 or Halo 5.

I'm reserving both, then I'm going to wait and see which appeals to me the most by launch. Cancel one and wait for the first price drop to get it. Or maybe I'll say screw them both and rebuild my PC to blow them away.

Yes. Many people are already wanting to buy the consoles.

I want the silver PS3 before I make a purchase.

I don't agree with the social thing as far as to say that the consoles don't need to update twitter statuses or facebook statuses to be successful. Personally I find that to be a waste of resources as, if you really cared about that, you can post it yourself. The only social aspect that consoles need are across other consoles.
NegativeCreepWA  +   618d ago
I think they should create their own social networks for gamers. Kind of like the Wii U does but a lot better.

That's a very intriguing idea.

No, home is to much. It needs be quick to access and use.

Think now, given the features expected of both, competing is really going to be a moot point. No body compares the viability of an average PC to a mega-gaming PC, both exist because both perform a wide variety of desired tasks.

These new consoles' "lives" won't only depend on who's got the better visuals anymore. The only way one would "oust" the other is by outperforming it in a multitude of ways and by a wide margin, or one console or the other makes some monumental mistake. I believe there is room enough in the market for both to thrive.
