Next Gen Xbox or PS4?

Right now I can only say yes to PS4, simply because we have no info on Xbox 3.

MS have got to convince me that games are their main priority before I commit to their next console.

Well the PS4 and next Xbox will probably get equal amounts of third party support. It's Sony's studios and their series that has me wanting the PS4. So third party games + Sony's first party games just makes the PS4 the obvious choice for me

I choose both
Both will have games that appeal to me and that is what I like.
wastedcells  +   1019d ago
I will have both but I love the ps3 most at the end of this console cycle and i am way more pumped for PS4.

When the ps4/nextbox launches.... ill keep playing my ps3.
NeverEnding1989  +   1019d ago
From what we've seen the PS4 will do doing more of the same as this gen in addition to catching up on some much needed features that the competition has (headsets, party chat).

Microsoft on the other hand appears to be changing the gaming landscape. The next Xbox will be a complete multimedia entertainment future-proof device. Illumiroom, Xbox Mini, and superior hardware if the rumours are true.

SONY will stick to the same blueprint that's lead them to their lowest selling non-portable console ever. Some may like that and that's great, but I think the market will send an even stronger message to SONY this gen.

Personally, games will dictate my choice. I expect a strong push from SONY to finally find a Halo killer.

It's what they're trying to change it into that has me worried. I have a cable box and I have a PC, I want a GAMES console!

Microsoft are, maybe, the worst platform holder in the history of this industry.

Their entire reasoning for getting into the gaming industry was not to provide games, but to get a Windows enabled multimedia box in every living room. The Xbox 3 sounds like their plan is about to take shape.

The fact they recycle the same games over and over is testament to that and supporting Microsoft without them providing a different approach is both foolish and a little ridiculous.

Even if the new Xbox was the best system ever, without the games to back it up, I still wouldn't go near it.
thechosenone  +   1019d ago
PS4 of course. I really didn't like what MS offered this gen and considering that the xbox ran out original IP in the last 3 years of its life and MS failing to acknowledge or do anything about it tells me everything I need to know about MS.

Right, Sony is the one who's playing catch up and copying last gen features.. that's why in the link below you'll see that the latest rumors show MS is trying to develop their own little version of what Sony showed off in Feb, like video recording/streaming, instant play and I'm sure we'll see others later this month.

MS changing gaming landscape?

PS4 doing the same as PS3?

So many lies in your post.

@NeverEnding - "The next Xbox will be a complete multimedia entertainment future-proof device. Illumiroom, Xbox Mini, and superior hardware if the rumours are true" So i'll be able to watch my 3D blu-rays in 7.1 on MS's new console you say. Can't respond? Wonder why?

That's it in a nutshell! Microsoft doesn't care if they are casual or core gamer, they will go with whomever makes them the most money! And although there are gamers that are loyal to microsoft, can the same amount of people say that Microsoft has been loyal to them?

It's called Destiny. The talent behind Halo is making Destiny so PS4 has the brains behind Halo on PS4 even know its not exclusive they got it so that's all that matters.

Neverending bull$h!t since 1989. M$ blueprint copy or buy ideas.

1. M$ has never hit a 100m consoles sold.

2. Both the PS1&PS2 hit a 100m after 9yrs of being on the market.

3. The PS3 still has 3yrs to hit 100m.

4. Sonys blueprint is being copied by M$. As of right now the PS3 is the complete entertainment hub. This will continue with the PS4. Which is why M$ has decided to try and copy Sonys moves as well as apple and google. The market sent a strong message to Sony by helping the PS3 outsell the 360, even though the 360 had a year head start.

5. If the rumors are true M$ needs two consoles one a cable box the other a game console to match the PS4.

6. Illumiroom, lol can you say gimmick and superior hardware. Did you forget the 360 had the highest failure rate of any console,and they stop supporting the 1st Xbox after 25m.

Sad son so sad.
PS4 all the way

for me i'm buying the PS4 because of the variety in their exclusives, free online, this gen i had a 360 but it was pretty much useless to me i refuse to pay to play online.

since their next system will continue that trend i won't be buying it. plus they don't have the variety in their exclusives.
JsonHenry  +   1019d ago
The PS4 is an absolute for me at this point. More than likely I will own both. MS would have to do something really stupid for it not to be worth buying as well.

PS4 day one. Maybe an Xbox 720 a few years later ONLY IF MS drops the XBL sub for free online play and free apps. I REFUSE to rent the online portion of my games and rent free apps from MS.

Hopefully both if they are cheap enough. Otherwise I'll probably stick with Xbox since I have spent 8 years building Gamerscore and friends and things like that.
BLow  +   1019d ago | Well said
I'll give you a agree for sticking by your opinion. I know there are fanboys on this site but I don't see anything wrong on what you posted. You were happy with your experience with the 360 and that's all that matters. Hopefully, you can get both and enjoy the best of both worlds. Boy, this site is harsh...haha. Keep your head
MonkeyNinja  +   1019d ago
And I'll give you a bubble for pointing that out. I personally can't stand Microsoft and their business decisions, but I agree that when someone is mature about their comment, I'm much more likely to listen and consider what they're saying.
stage88  +   1019d ago
Just putting it out there but if MS produce an average multimedia console instead of more of a games console you'd still be happy picking it over Sony because it has achievement/trophies (of no tangible value) and friends list which is likely to change due to new consoles? (people switch).

Denying Sony's AAA exclusives seems crazy just for that.

Agreed. If xbox turns out good and has great games I have no problem with getting it. Choosing it for gamerscore and friends list is for the birds.

joeorc  +   1019d ago
have an agree + bubble up from me, you gave a very valid reason why you are sticking with Microsoft, cannot fault you for that. As a matter of fact that i think is what all three are going for to keep the install base from going, keep the advancements of the service and content focused on the gamers that use the platform every day, weekly or year end year out.

Not leaving your gamer score and friends is one of the reason's you or anyone as a gamer would stick with a platform.

All three are using social media, and putting it to great use of integration inside the platforms.
Hicken  +   1018d ago
I love my friends, but I don't let them dictate anything in my life.

To put it another way: are all of your friends ONLY going to be getting the 720? What if they don't upgrade to the next gen? What if they choose PS4 instead?

What about games? What if ALL they bring out is Kinect? What if they stop putting out games to focus on TV services? Are you gonna stick with Microsoft even then?

Does it not matter to you what Microsoft does with their next console, so long as you've got your Gamerscore and (hopefully) your friends?
Jek_Porkins  +   1018d ago
Something like 90% of the games next gen will be the same on PS4 and Next-Box, I run a gaming clan, have for the last 5 years, we've already all talked about switching over and sticking with what we've been best with, which is Xbox. Hopefully I can get both, but I love some competitive gaming on games like Gears, Halo, COD and Battlefield.

I will be waiting at least 6 months after each console releases just to see where each will go and have to offer when both companies have their long legs running the distance.

I can definitely tell you that besides the WiiU I will only own one other console between MS and Sony. Having all three consoles this gen was a huge mistake and a waste of money.

Also i have notice the anounce for the new Xbox dint have even half of the ps4 annouce.

Why its that?
Clover904  +   1019d ago
Sony announced some great new features for the PS4, and no doubt Microsoft will do the same when they unveil the new Xbox. However, for me it all comes down to the games. Games are what brings these systems to life. The games are why we continue to drive this industry forward. And when it comes to decision time this fall, it will be based on the new experiences I'll enjoy from the games.

I don't know what Microsoft has up its sleeves, but right now Sony takes the crown for best games, IMO. Having said that, Microsoft will have my undivided attention in May. It's an exciting time to be a gamer ;)
WickedLester  +   1019d ago
Best response so far! It doesn't have to be either/or folks! Both systems can and will coexist and both will offer things the other will not. I will buy a PS4 no doubt. For 3 generations in a row, Sony has not disappointed me. I see no reason why this trend would change next gen. With Xbox, I MIGHT get one but I will take a wait and see approach. I want to see how much of an effort they make in providing exclusive in-house games that cater to the core gamer.
