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?" (PS4, Xbox One)

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

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

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-Xx  +   917d ago | Well said
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.

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.

drpepperdude  +   917d 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.

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.

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.
Xx-ADITYA-xX  +   917d 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.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   917d 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.
gaffyh  +   917d 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?

Off topic @xHeavYx: You were "nervous thinking that xbox would have a ton of stuff"? What kind of bullshit is that? Straight up fanboyism at its worst, nervous that a game company might actually have good IP's and stats. Runs completely contrary to what being a gamer is, i.e. the motherfucking games.

They sold it as a Sports and Guns Console. A Bro Console. A Bro-sole. A Con-Brole. With a dog. A DOGBROLE. Dogbrole One confirmed.

Seriously though, I'd love a Kinect that recorded 30fps if there were a game-shaped reason for it. It's like the Kinect 1.0 to the 360's Kinect Wescrappedthechipout.1.
llMurcielagoll  +   916d ago
I, for one, was not very happy when they started talking about games, as usual here it is trailers KKTHXBYE...

No live demos and there was talk about just a few games. It gave me the impression that watching TV is the BIG thing now and Games are nothing but a mere afterthought... To me, playing games on a gaming console is the priority and watching TV is an option!

What I will do, I won't jump to conclusions now, I will wait for E3 and see what happens in detail.

I'm having doubts of the "always online" and whether or not the service is going to be free or not. I also bought 360 years later way after the whole RROD thing and I got the newer model very cheap around 100 dollars. Got rid of Kinect and saved up even more to buy a hard drive.

PS4 and PC will be the only platforms I game on next gen. :)

"What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner."

Those rumors were shot down by xbox support on twitter after they surfaced - supposedly there is no fee for playing used games or playing the same disc over different accounts in a household.
FamilyGuy  +   917d ago
I completely disagree, this reveal showed almost nothing of interest to me.

I wanted to know what their plan was and they showed it and it turned out to be far removed from what I'm interested in. I don't play fantasy league sports, I don't really watch sports or play sports games, I don't and haven't had cable for over 3 years for that switch back an forth option, I'm not interested in motion controlling games. I don't like he fact that the camera is a mandatory part of the system as it just increases cost, if this thing launches at more than $400 they're in trouble.

They didn't show very many games but E3 could at least change that and be a saving grace. Only thing of interest are their "8 exclusive new IPs within the first year". I'm pretty sure Sony's going to beat that number too.

So far it's completely underwhelming, I was already in Sony's boat and this just made me pull out the fishing poll as I plan to be here a while.

DevilishSix  +   917d ago
Of those 8 new IP's, I wonder how many will be core titles and how many will be Kinect. If I were a betting man, I would go with more Kinect titles.

What MS needed to do here was address the always online to play games and if used games were going to be locked. By not addressing those rumors, then I think the lack of addressing them is confirmation of those rumors.

I'm sure it will be, but you get what you pay for.
shadow2797  +   916d ago
Just so you know, Sony has hinted that their camera will come with the system, too. I doubt it will be required to use the console, but the "increases cost" argument should be levied at Sony as well.
FamilyGuy  +   916d ago
Sony has made no such hint, I have no idea where you heard that but they've clearly stated that the camera would be separate when they mentioned "Not needing the camera for the light bar controller functions to work".

It's definitely not shipping with the console, there's no reason for it to. Sony doesn't have a heavy focus on motion control gaming, they just give you it as an option as a peripheral should be.
Man2bFree  +   917d ago
Not at all. I wasn't impressed by Xbox at all. i have a tv, and i can watch shows and all that crap. plus i don't to sign up with cable and have a monthly bill. Also, all the game they showed will come to PS4. Also, it looks like it has to be always online. Disappointed, this isn't a gaming system, rather a cable box. Plus i get max - 6 download speed in my area, and i don't think its enough. plus snapping and bragging and hand gestures just seem funny. i think ps4 will be more simple, and user friendly w/o all the other crap.

So let me get this straight, 80% of the conference was about kinect/tv/cable, 15% about multi-platform games and 5% of the obvious halos and forzas?

Ok lets pretend that the US isn't the whole world (crazy right?)and that the aforementioned 80% of the Xbox One will be working as advertised.

What about the rest of the world??? Will those services work out of the US?

Btw my Samsung smart tv along with my tablet are more than enough for me when it comes to living room entertainment...

pimpschitz  +   916d ago
Yep, some countries don't have cable but still have internet and electricity. Some countries don't even have internet, so MS making that call was a really selfish thing to do. Basically saying "we have the goods, but since you can't afford it you should try to move here, America is great."

In the meantime Sony revealed "Buy our system, you can play games on it and you don't have to pay hidden fees, or pay for the internet usage you already pay for.

pimpschitz  +   916d ago
dude i'm the opposite, I'm an Xbox junkie and I'm switching to PS4. I traded in my Xbox console 5 times before they sent me one that didn't mess up. To be honest I'm kind of a poor person, paying for online is something that I don't have the time for. Paying for a console is something I have the time for when I have the funds available. I'm just tired of Xbox, you can do what you want, as we all are on here. Xbox looks alright with all the hyped features, but honestly I don't even use the features it has now.

So come Xmas PS4 will be sitting in my living room waiting for these games:
The Last of Us
Final Fantasy 15
Watch Dogs
GT 6
and many many more. Also just a side note, fallout 4 is expected to be announced soon, look for E3, they may reveal something there.
Jaces  +   917d ago
Hasn't changed my anticipation for PS4 one bit. Nothing was shown that I care about, I'll have to wait till E3 to see if they really have something to show or if it's just more of them riding the hype train.
TwistedMetal  +   917d ago
why get both when you can get the best one ps4 and get all the better multiplats version of games as well as exclusives, as well as having the better hardware? then you can save the extra cash from not buying the xbox one and get more ps4 games or even a wii u after a price drop. xbox one is the last thing anyone should really consider getting behind all the other better consoles i put the xbox one behind the ps4, pc, wiiu, 3ds and vita. once you have all those systems you still probably shouldnt get a xbox one once it has had price drops.
showtimefolks  +   917d ago
With limited time for games I have become a one system gamer, unless Sony saws up something big my choice just like last 3 generations will be a playstation console(ps4)

Nothing against Xbox one but I don't want to pay for xblive
I don't want to deal with must be connected
I don't care about TV box
And I really don't want a system blocking used games in any way( good job EA you fooled us all, here we were thinking EA may have changed but instead you fool us by showing up on MS stage because they like you want to block used games market)

If MS is to charge us for used game fee and make us connect our systems online atleast every 24hrs than we as a gaming community should stand together and make a statement by not supporting companies that are trying their best to rip us off

Sony has a lot to gain after what MS showed and talked about, now Sony will have the last say at E3 since they go last so it will be fun to watch what ms and Sony bring to E3

While I am obviously a Sony supporter I was mainly happy to see that the One seems to be similar as far as hardware specs. There are some obvious differences and we don't have all the details on either yet, but I am at least hopeful that the similarities will mean better 3rd party games for BOTH systems and tighter competition that gamers can only benefit from. I am curious what percentage of the 15 exclusives they are coming out with are AA titles and if any are Kinect shovelware type games and I would like to know more details on the future of Live and so on, but I guess we will have to wait for E3. Overall I don't think anyone was surprised by anything Microsoft revealed today, for good or bad, but so far it looks like the next gen will be the best yet on a number of points. Just my .02

Nope still the same that unveiling was worse then Nintendo E3 2012. First 30minutes no games in sight and then they show a creepy live action trailer,Forza 5 and easports games. This actually beats Sony E3 2006.

Sony showed off Destiny, diablo, watchdogs, KZ, Infamous, knack, indie titles, etc which is why i want that thing.. It has a camera & beautiful new dual shock with sharing features & im sure will be more powerful.. I will stick w PS4 & Wii U for my gaming needs.. My cable box is for sports.. I want PS4 more than ever!

I dont need a $400+ cable box that has internet explorer & a camera for skyping.. PS4 will have sport games & COD too so they didnt give me a reason to want it.. Halo tv series just made me LOL..

I originally planned to get both. The Ps4 first and the XBox after but im a tad disappointed in the reveal. Unless Xbox live is now free i know theyre gonna charge extra for those tv features. If i pay for live and get the NFL subscription as part of the deal then im def getting one.

Come to the PlayStation side, we have games
InMyOpinion  +   916d ago
I've never taken sides really. Loved the PS1, then enjoyed both PS2 and the original Xbox. This gen I've had a blast with the 360.

Eventhough it's not had many interesting exclusives to vouch for the last 2 years I have such a huge backlog of games that I probably won't be ready for a new console in at least a year or so.

And if anyone should be a fanboy it would be me really since Sony pays my rent every month :)
kewlkat007  +   917d ago
For those that only buy one console, this question probably doesn't matter much but just like the last 2 Console Generations, I always get all consoles. Well, I work hard for them to enjoy the games the other might not get.

I notice, the day and age of HARDWARE POWER is over. The whole tit 4 tat about what hardware is best is meh..Consoles do more than just play video games, just as cell phones have advanced past making just a call.

i agree with you but at the same time your xbox will be in the same place as the other things that it also does. with a cellphone you're mostly using it on the go where the rest of the features will be great. so saying that it lacked what makes a great console great is justified.
ZapFool  +   917d ago
My key issue is they didn't touch on the 'always online' rumors. It has been a big issue leading up to the announcement, people wondering whether it will be always online, and Microsoft chose to neither confirm or call bullshit. That is a concern.
turnerdc  +   917d ago
Always online is not required. Here is a quote...

"Xbox One will give game developers the ability to create games that use Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service, which means that they might be able to offload certain computing tasks to the cloud rather than process them on the Xbox One hardware itself. This would necessitate the game requiring a connection.

Are developers forced to create games that have these online features, and are thus not playable offline? They are not, Xbox exec Whitten said to Wired — but “I hope they do.” So the always-online future may come in incremental steps."

ZapFool  +   917d ago
Interesting stuff, I think what Microsoft have attempted to do in this case is please publishers by opening the flood gates for DRM, but at the same time put themselves in a position to say 'hey, we didn't MAKE them do it' to gamers.
g4me_he4d  +   917d ago
After the reveal Geoff Keighley asked Don about this and he said there will be offline capabilities.
SmokingMonkey  +   917d ago
I think that if you buy the BluRay disk, you can go home and play it offline.

But if you take the disk to another system, then it require's an initial online

connection to buy a Disc Pass?

That is my initial assumption.

Why even have disc's then? Just DL the game from online.

PS4 day 1 for me. I'll see about the other two later.
FamilyGuy  +   917d ago
I watched the Spike feed and they had and interview afterward confirming that it would not be forcing online to play games.

Rumor: False

Which is a good thing, also there will be no backward compatibility.
jocomat9  +   917d ago
apparently you have to connect every 24 hours though to the internet. SO yes its false but they were sneaky to do this
RyanShutup  +   917d ago
As long as online play remains free on PS4 and WiiU that's where I'll be doing my gaming. If XboxOne allows for free multiplayer then I'll have to seriously consider it an option as opposed to PS4, but Live is just not worth the extra $250-$450 over a consoles life cycle IMO.
Holeran  +   917d ago
I haven't been able to find the specs on this as of yet. Does anyone know? Ram amount and type? Cpu? Gpu? Same die set up ? Anything?
RAM amount is going to be 8 gb of DDR3. as far as the rest you want to know about you can read it here:

Ps4 all the way

Ps4 event wowed me

windblowsagain  +   917d ago
PS4 for me.

I thought the console looked big, but maybe that's the best for what's in the system.

Forza - does not interest me, neither does halo.

Some of the tv control looked interesting, but I live in the uk and don't watch uk tv. I get all my progs from eztv for free and watch any sport I want for free:)

The controller and Forza 5 impressed me, rest was disappointing.

I'm more excited for PS4 now. The TV stuff is actually kind of cool but it's obvious MS is sacrificing consol power for Kinect and multimedia functionality.

I'm going with the console with the best looking/running multiplats and games. MS could have matched or exceeded PS4 power if they didn't include a Kinect in every box. Also, how much of that slow 8 gig RAM will be used to keep movies, TV, music, Skype,etc. running in the background all the time while running Kinect too.
koolaid251  +   917d ago
The Kinect has it's own processor and ram!!!

MadMen  +   917d ago
I think Xbox has a stronger overall vision and I think its due to their success in other markets and knowledge.

SONY I think is still a gamers machine first, which is a good thing but they aren't as broad as MS.

So whatever your need is it will be driven by those factors, of course this is a gamers site , so we know where that will lend it self.
SlapHappyJesus  +   917d ago
Smart post.
That said, as a game console, xbox just doesn't seem to care this generation.
Jeff257  +   917d ago
Yes the PS4 is primarily a gamers system first. But that is where Sony is getting it right. I don't really know what other markets MS has been successful in. Other than the XBOX any other venture outside of their PC software has been lackluster at best. Sony has always been more diverse and integrated in the entertainment side of things. Even before the PS1 even got started they were already successful with their home entertainment products, BMG, and movie studios. The PS2 had DVD integration from day one with no outside controller needed. it was also responsible for the major adoption of DVD. The same with PS3 and Blu Ray. It practically carried the Blu Ray market because they were so focused on making it work for movies and games. Frankly MS is going in the wrong direction and this will actually end up hurting them.
