Side by side: The Xbox One and the PS4

DigiBytes takes a look at not only the hardware on display for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, but also discusses some of the many different features of each that will define the next generation of console gaming. (PS4, Xbox One)

So how much is Xbox Live going to go up because these "new features."

I wonder if you will need gold live for purchasing the ability to play a used game

if xbox one could play 360 games, i can see more ppl being inclined to buy it but ZERO BC along with those awful requirements regarding installs on games & fees for used games will bury it.. No1 wants to talk to their machine to watch TV.. People buy these things to play games & PS4 looks to be the best for that having better specs that we know of & being super dev friendly.. At least sony is trying to offer an alternative to BC with Gaikai.. we shall see but Sony is whos getting my money day 1!

Sony has a huge edge over Microsoft with Gaikai being able to stream older games especially in a few years as fiber lines start replacing DSl and cable lines and the average speed goes up to like 100MBps.

I really hope Microsoft does something soon. Hopefully all of this negative feedback will open their eyes.

Also, this is my 1000th comment; Huzzah!

i agree there is still hope for ms but people need to voice there opinions on why the xbox one is just not good at all. sony won this round give them there props and ms will have to do something to get better thats how competition works. so good job sony you get my money.

I really wonder if this is going to tank or sell like crazy? I hope the masses don't accept this!
Fee for used games, always online in the format of 24 hour offline timer, no backwards compatibility at all, I don't see how anybody can support this?

Knowing Microsoft they will spend so much in advertising to make people believe "millions" are on this idea; and here in the US it will work - however overseas not so much. The conference alone was almost a waste of time, and the post show was an even bigger joke; at first I did want to hold all opinions until after the reveal, and now I'm even less inclined to purchase the new Xbox. I know the new thing is "wait till E3" however so much damage has been done there's very little Microsoft can do at this point to keep the fanbase happy unless they do some last minute changes.

Microsoft sustains massive damage, with their own Ccomboo Bbreakeer!!!

The days of something purely for Games has passed, PS4 and Xbox one are both very similar in that they are home entertainment systems and not just games consoles

Not true there will always be PC where you have things like Steam that are focused just on gaming related stuff.

Thing is, I wasn't surprised even for a second on the MS conference. Do gamers really need all those things the Xbox One can do? I know I dont, and I'm a hardcore gamer or at least I consider myself to be one.

damn i really wanted to get the 1 but after hearin about the uses games BS its not going to happen. PS4 FTW;)

Xbox one will fail in Japan and Europe. They are trying to gain leverage with the call of doody deals with activision
tdogg  +   463d ago
The only problem I have with the xbox one is the used games fee. But let's be realistic people. Most people will buy both. Ps4 on day one and xbox one when tax season comes lol
Eldyraen  +   463d ago
Pretty much.

I'll probably still end up with both but MS will likely lose out on many multiplatform game sales which they had relied on heavily late in this generation. I'm hopefully optomistic E3 will surprise me as I can ignore many of its weak points as they don't pertain to me personally or owning both consoles you can find a way to ignore them even with worst case scenarios (rentals/used games for PS4 for people).

Just disappointing that it may come to that. I'll just have to wait and see for sure and hope MS hires decent PR to talk to people and let us know what's up.

Many are trying to justify the XBoxOne as being comparable to the PS4 but I can't and I don't need E3 to convince me. Its has slower RAM than the PS4 plus they added 32MB(which seems like not near enough) of ERAM to the GPU which is not as unified as the PS4's architecture so devs might have to deal with some bottlenecking, especially since the CPU is also rumored to be slower than the PS4. The article tried to do a great job at making it look like their similar but their clearly not.
