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
★ PLAYSTATION 4 ★
\^_^/ XBOX \^_^/
Both will have games that appeal to me and that is what I like.
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.
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.
"Microsoft on the other hand appears to be changing the gaming landscape" 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!
When will you ever end......
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.
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. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
MS changing gaming landscape? Xbox "superior" hardware? Future proof device? 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?
@PirateThom 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?
@NeverEnding1989 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.
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.
LOL! 3.... 2..... 1.....
PS4 for me no doubt.Due to the fact the Sony always puts gamer's first.
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.
PS4 like a boss !
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.
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 up...lol
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.
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.
I'm sure buddy. According to some of your previous posts you wouldn't even be able to get adjusted to dem wacky PS3 analogue sticks.
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.
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?
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.
So stupid, why not wait until the 21st and then make this article?
"Show me the games Lebowski." "We want the games Lebowski!" Though honestly, anything with stuff behind a paywall will be lower on my list, if at all.
