How Has Xbox One's Reveal Affected Your Anticipation for PS4?

Push Square: "Microsoft’s just tied a big green, pearlescent bow around its Xbox Reveal event. As expected, the press conference raised the curtain on Xbox One, the next generation console from the Redmond-based manufacturer. Throughout the conference, the company touched upon many topics, including television, music, movies, and, well, a few games. But how has the reveal affected your excitement for the PlayStation 4?"

No because I'll probably get both? I don't see why one takes steam off of the other.

xHeavYx1548d ago

I was a bit nervous thinking that X-Box would have a ton of stuff to show. Their conference sucked, the console looks like crap, the name is not catchy, barely talked about specs, didn't focus on games, there are rumors that you'll have to pay a fee for used games. I guess this is ONE console I won't need

XB1_PS41548d ago

I liked the console, and the name. I didn't like that they didn't focus on games, and the games they did focus on were kinda shit.

xX-StolenSoul-Xx1548d ago

I wish they went more in depth with the specs on the console, that's just me. I really want to see which one is the most powerful.

They focused on more entertainment where Ps4 focused alot more on the gamers. I'm still leaning Ps4, my anticipation has not changed. Ps4 is still a day 1 buy.

Raccoon1548d ago

In no way did they appeal to me ps4 all the way!

jc485731548d ago

it's a literally.

theBAWSE1548d ago

ps4 cant come soon enough..i buy a games console for games

has ms revealed what type of ram the one uses yet?

ABizzel11548d ago

It confirmed which console I'll be getting first.

Hint: It won't be the console announced today

Muerte24941548d ago

I know you're trying to take the middle ground on this one. Sorry but I was not impressed in the least. They didn't address any of the rumors. I think Microsoft is going to have to try an undercut them in price.

loulou1548d ago

what sort of question is that for n4g?? lol

anyway, both day 1

DragoonsScaleLegends1548d ago

Name sucks which I was kind of expecting but they could have gone with xbox 3 or just xbox those are better then just calling it One. Yeah the box looks surprisingly bad, I was expecting something way better. I'm definitely not getting a xbox with my PS4 after watching this event.

- 8GB of slower RAM among other vague specs
- Mostly concentrated on TV/cable features
- Kinect evolved, bigger Kinect focus, more Kinect games in development
- Very awkward name for a console
- Ugly console looks like an oversized DVD player/cable box
- Nothing but CG trailers
- On top of slower RAM, OS will probably use 2-3 GB due to Microsoft's intention to utilize too many different features at once while gaming. Here comes the red heat, guys

I'm not affected as this was expected. A wasted opportunity because now all eyes are on Sony and their E3 PS4 reveal.

sengoku1548d ago (Edited 1548d ago )

This was a very disappointing show by M$.
so much focus on tv and additional functions there was hardly any games shown which should have been the hall mark of the damn thing.

Sony PS4 is going to be hard to get this holiday season and i'm getting one for sure.

a_adji1548d ago

They had to save it for e3

I_am_Batman1548d ago

That conference made me think about picking up a Wii-U as a secondary console cause I don't like the focus on that TV shenanigans.

I'll give them a second chance for E3 though. Who knows maybe they have some interessting stuff that actually is gaming related to show there.

Root1548d ago

I thought they wouldn't call it the XBOX ONE because it would look like the PS4 was better because the number being higher.

If thats the case they could of just called it XBOX 3

papashango1548d ago (Edited 1548d ago )

I actually really like the boxy look. I'm very sick of the round curvy look that dominated everything from cars to electronics.

This is probably the reason why I really love the new Chevy Silverado look. give me that boxy body.

and Xbox One sounds pretty good.

Arai1548d ago

They avoided specific specs for a reason, think about it for a second.

I enjoyed the voice command stuff of the show as they all worked flawlessly and were impressive to me.

The other thing I liked about the conference was Remedy's game, but other than that I'm not impressed at all.

Highlife1548d ago

It is confermend that you will have to pay a fee to play a used game!

ramiuk11548d ago

i wanted to get both after being very impressed with the path sony taking with indie,core games being at front of it all.
now i seen this and MS entire focus seems on tv and stuff i know will only be in america i think its ps4 for me.
i have tivo and i dont need the xbox interface.

PLASTICA-MAN1548d ago (Edited 1548d ago )

After watching the Xbox One reveal, I just felt the urge to pre-order a PS4. Just my point of view.

After all, it is not only me:

MysticStrummer1548d ago

I would never have believed it was possible, but I think today's reveal actually helped Sony. I wonder how many MS fans just switched sides.

I wouldn't even consider a MS console unless they got rid of paying to play online, so the reveal had no impact on me at all.

Saigon1548d ago

I need to know more information before I can decide.

lilbrat231548d ago

Well they are also charging to install the game if you don't have GOLD. BS since you already bought the game. Right now I might hold off on getting the xbox one. You also will need the kinect connected or you won't be able to play.

abzdine1548d ago

PS4 ftw! And now even more!

dendenmooshi1548d ago

Don't want to speak too soon, but it looks like Sony learned much more from last gen than MS.

But who knows? Maybe they'll renew another fad in motion gaming. Maybe timed exclusives (just assuming) will finally pay off.

Blackdeath_6631548d ago

it wasn't a rumour you do have to pay a fee to install a game you ALREADY BOUGHT on someone else's account if you had to pay to install on another console i would under stand but to pay just so my brother can play the games i buy on his account is ridiculous

Muffins12231548d ago

Loved the design of the console and the dashboard,hated the content and the fact that they did not show a game i could not get on a ps4....all of the games xbox one showed was one meh looking exclusive and ea and call of duty....thats it.

Adityac1548d ago

That's true, but to be honest the Kinect camera does look superior to the PS4 camera, I mean features like 1080p... recording of heartbeat etc. Plus, it's going to be another generation with Xbox getting the Call of Duty DLC a month early. Sony should implement some exclusivity deal(s) on their console too. For example getting BF4 DLC one month early would be great, currently PS3 users get BF3 DLC one week early so why not enhance this deal? Another thing which I noticed was the fact that the amount of image clarity and detail in Forza's announcement trailer made it quite elegant. Perhaps even better than Driveclub. However I think the PS4 will be a lot better, if Sony could address these slight inferiorities it would be even better.

TXIDarkAvenger1548d ago

If they focused on games, what would there E3 presentation possibly be? I'm waiting till E3 to get my final word, this goes for both systems.

gaffyh1548d ago

As soon as Don Mattrick said All-in-One like three times straight at the beginning of the conference, I said "I bet it's called Xbox One", and lo and behold, 30 seconds later, Xbox One. I personally think that the name does work, but it is also confusing to the casual users.

I was impressed by the TV stuff, but it is VERY America-focused. None of the stuff they showed hinted at similar features for other territories, and even then, there will be very few people that actually use some of the features they mentioned. I think Skype was a good announcement, but even then, people have Skype on their laptops to call their grandmas, do they really think that grandma will buy an Xbox just to use Skype and talk to their families?

MysticStrummer1548d ago (Edited 1548d ago )

I said above that I thought maybe the MS reveal helped Sony...


thechosenone1548d ago

Come on...I just want to play games I didn't ask for nor want any of those other features.
