So you’re a fanboy… Xbox One goes heads up with PlayStation 4

You LOVE your console, and no matter how you feel about Microsoft or Sony, your next console is going to be great, and the other console is going to suck. Right? (PS4, Xbox One)

I wanted Xbox One to be good, but all this negative news coming out post-conference. The thing is getting slammed all around on sites. All I can say is, I hope they do SOMETHING at E3 to wow gamers. As a gamer, that conference did absolutely nothing to excite me.

i buy consoles for gaming... so yea... im going for ps4.
wastedcells  +   732d ago
Agreed. Consoles are for games. It's just a bonus console can do all kinds of useful things now but I only turn my console on to play games. Sure sometimes for movies but every device plays movies now so I expect it more then care about it. Games for the win. PS4 will be an easy choice. Even if they show halo or gears at E3 it's over XBOX DONE.

I got voted down and lost a bubble for trolling before because I said Sony wasn't trying to compete with Microsoft's casual ways. I wasn't trolling and MS just proved that.

Can I have that bubble back?

Overall I'd say Sony's reveal was better simply because they showed games.

MS conference didn't speak to me as a gamer. I'm not into sports besides football but I didn't care to much about it that much.

MS said they'll show the games at E3. Well the road to E3 begins.

I'm not gonna say i'm sad. I expected this but still told my self maybe ms will do something exciting but no they made me completely sure that i won't buy another xbox.. So i find fans expression funny but in a kind of sad way towards them lol ..

You're not excited? I'm pretty excited about the Xbox One. It's gonna be the best remote I own. I love how I can now turn on my PS4 just by telling the Xbox to do so.

@gta2800
You can't do that. "PS4" or "Playstation 4" will be the terms the kinect won't recognize. I can see it clearly now when you said PS4 to the One, it will display "invalid command. Do you mean Dance Central 4?" And then it loads it regardless of what you do next. lol

I think there will be some price cuts at e3. A lot of price cuts are usually announced at that time.

I went through the five stages of grief when I was watching this conference.

Sadly for MS, I don't have high hopes.

games tied to one account, fuck you MS
ltachiUchiha  +   732d ago
I understand they are fighting used games and all but that freakin sucks if all our games are tied to one account. Hopefully you can use your account on multiple systems like the ps3 so u can share them with a friend or family member.
JoeIsMad  +   732d ago
Aren't downloadable titles already this way? You can sign in with the profile and another to play together on the same console.
zeal0us  +   732d ago
Downloadable games is one thing but what batz is referring to is if you wanted to loan your game out to your friend, he/she would need your account info(so they can sign in) or have to pay a fee to run the game.

I'm personally looking forward to the Xbox One. I already know Microsoft and its developers can produce great games. Its great to see the T.V and Skype integrated into it. This way when I'm on my P.C to play some League with friends. The Wife can watch her Netflix and other T.V shows. Or when I'm on Halo I can Skype instead of using the party chat system. I believe Microsoft is moving in the right direction and bringing us awesome new things with our gaming console. From a hardware stand point the PS4 and Xbox One are the same. Now its all up to the software, And Xbox One brought the Software to this reveal.

"From a hardware stand point the PS4 and Xbox One are the same." How
JoeIsMad  +   732d ago
They both have Direct X 11.1 video cards and 8-core, low strength processors. One has bluetooth, one uses wi-fi direct for controllers.

to me xbox one is just a 360 in a newer box with new controller and more ram to me i didnt see anything that would make me buy one
CynicalKelly  +   732d ago
Really? I would have considered it the other way around.

The PS4 is just a PS3 with better specs and a share button.

The Xbox One is nothing like the Xbox 360. Everything about it is new excluding the achievements and dashboard appearance. None of it appeals to me though.

Let the disagrees commence I guess.

Sony also stated that e3 there's more lol Sony owned them at rival console now to end em at e3 take note consoles are for games not something we been.doing.for 75+ years watch.tv.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   732d ago
Truthfully. It's a terrible idea, a lot of games I played and enjoyed I borrowed off friends. I mean if you have a source to enjoy something, why not use it? Locking people out like this is just wrong. Especially since it doesn't fight things like piracy at all.
r21  +   732d ago
Which should mean the one with most exclusive and unique games will separate them. Currently, that ball's in Sony's court UNTIL E3. MS did say they're having games reveal for E3.
CynicalKelly  +   732d ago
I already pre-ordered the PS4, didn't think the Xbox could do anything to compete but I think it looks really good. None of it appeals to me but I think everyone is being far to critical of it.

They say it's not focusing on the gamers but why can it not focus on gamers and multimedia? They included a blu ray and decent specs? It looks better than what the 360 did compared to the PS3 back years ago.

I really wanted an XOne, but my interest in this thing fell like a house of cards with all of this combined:

-Anti used games
-24 hour offline mode
-Paid online mode
-Focus primarily on TV entertainment

The huge ugly box, lesser specs than PS4, and the choice name are all trivial when you have the other baggage listed above.

Pretty excited for the Xbox One! The new Kinect looks amazing and more in line with what they were originally aiming for. Running multiple apps, being able to instantly switch between different media formats, and full TV integration also looks very useful. I'm also looking forward to the DVR capabilities and the new controller. Can't wait to see Remedy's new game, more of Forza 5, and whatever else they plan to unveil at E3!
CanadianTurtle  +   732d ago
What made me angry is that they should off all this stuff I'll probably never use.

Look, when I watch a movie, I don't want any distractions. Why in hell would I want to bring up internet explorer when I'm deeply engaged in watching a good movie? Why would I want to be distracted like that?

Also, they made it sound like it was made for gamers, but it functions like it's made for people who are absolutely new to gaming.

Those 15 year one exclusives better not be a majority of kinect titles. I think that is everyone's biggest fear.

Oh, I'd want to burn them with fire if any more than two are Kinect titles. Especially new IPs.
TylerDurden13  +   732d ago
I know everyone is caught up in the used game ordeal, but do you really expect Sony to not charge you for used games? Do you think Microsoft went out on it's own without contacting the game developers about this? Game developers receive no money from used game sales and who has noticed a decline in gaming developers lately, kind of a common trend of companies closing or getting bought out. If Sony doesn't make you pay some sort of fee, then count on them losing some games that may become Microsoft exclusive. I'm not a fan boy of either as I own both a PS3 and an Xbox 360. I know Sony said the PS4 will play used games, they just never said if it would cost anything.
ACESupERIC  +   732d ago
Devs SHOULDNT get a fee from used games! They already got paid from the original sale. What makes the game industry any different from any other mass produced consumer product on the planet?! Anything can be bought and resold but video games are somehow exempt from the normal order of business?! There has been and always will be a used market for goods. Hopefully MS sees the error in this and changes their strategy because they are goin to alienate a lot more of their customers than they think. I love gaming enough that the console manufacturer makes no difference to me. I have them all and pc but I will not be buying the nextbox unless they drastically change this anti used game strategy
