PS4 & Wii U are the only combination needed

animegamingnerd1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

agree this will be the first generation that i don't get all of the consoles

SonyPS41764d ago

The Wii U deserves more credit than it has gotten by certain "gamers" on the Internet. It may not be "next-gen" (whatever that really means) but at least it doesn't have any of the baggage of the XOne:

-Anti used games
-Emphasis on TV rather than gaming
-24 hour offline mode
-Paid online mode

I want to buy an XOne, but MS just can't seem to get it.

maxgamehard1764d ago

Totally agree, I already have a Wii u and I am going to pre order the ps4 as soon as pre orders are open

Mainsqueeze1764d ago

So far PS4 looks loads better for gaming. With that being said most of my friends are more excited about the Xbox One because of its media features. I can see a place for both of them on the market and I definitely want to see what MS and Sony are going to show at E3 before I decide on my initial purchase. Today's reveal I think was more about the system itself.

Bimkoblerutso1764d ago

I'm in the same boat as animegamingnerd.

This will be the first generation that I will not be buying all the consoles.

The funny thing is, I thought if this day ever came that it would be a difficult decision for me, but Microsoft actually made it very easy....

TwistedMetal1764d ago

thats the combo im going with and its the best combo. i cant even fathom why someone would get a xbox one before those 2.

darthv721764d ago

I have never passed up the opportunity to have a piece of each console within a generation. like all others consoles before...I have to have them all. I'm that much of a console whore.

CaulkSlap1764d ago

As soon as the WiiU gets a price cut I'm all in. Same as the 3DS was at launch it's overpriced outdated hardware. Sells poorly until they cut the price and good games start flowing.

ZodTheRipper1764d ago

Not joking here, WiiU really is looking much better after that Xbox disaster.
I thought I won't miss Nintendo at E3 this year but now I'd rather have them than Microsoft holding a conference.

When you think about it, PS4 had one new IP, Deep DOwn, apart from that the rest were just sequels.

drsnoopyseussdog1764d ago

LMAO it's Knack, but to be honest I think Snack would be a kool title :p

cannon88001764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )


It's knack lol, not snack. :D

Dammit Drsnoopyseussdog beat me to it lol

UltraNova1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Then what you should think about my friend is that MS had at least 2 more years to come up with new titles for its new console than Sony did.

Why? cause unlike MS and the total absence of titles for the past 1,5 years on the 360 (apart from some 'push' kinect games), Sony made their studios pump out exclusive after exclusive for the PS3 until the last minute and intentionally put next-gen development on the back burner.

Their's only so much a studio can do at the same time right?

So the reality is that and I dont want to flame or anything is that MS has screwed their 360 customers for nearly 2 years now so they could boast 15 lunch lineup exclusives for the new xbox.

So I wouldn't mind some sequels from Sony as long as they come up with new IP's within the next year...

vividi1763d ago

LOL , sorry Knack, I was a little hungry

McScroggz1763d ago

They had Knack and Driveclub. And while inFamous: Second Son and Killzone Shadow Fall are not new IP's, their stories are separate from previous games in the franchise - thus they aren't sequels. Plus, Sony has stated that every 1st party studio is working on a PS4 game so we know there will be more games.

Microsoft showed EA Sports games (multiplatform), Call of Duty Ghosts (multiplatform) and Remedy's Quantum Break (Remedy is a great studio, and if this is a new way to experience gaming as in a weekly show with weekly game segements then interesting, otherwise probably nothing special).

Joecool61011764d ago

weak article.. you didn't even try.

Reverent1764d ago

Granted, Microsoft didn't really try to impress actual gamers this time around. I think the next generation has Sony's name all over it as far as consoles go.

SignifiedSix911764d ago

They never try. They hate on anything that's not sony related. We'll see who's boss come E3.

RedDevils1764d ago

from the look of it X1 already loss before it even begin

ZodTheRipper1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Or you're belonging to the minority that just doesn't get it. This is a gaming site, people are here because of the games ...and there's this one (it's so easy making fun of it btw) console that doesn't have any.

kayoss1764d ago

When I was watching conference at work and noticed that for 30 mins or so all Microsoft did was talk about tv and how the Xbox will change living room entertainment. I thought to myself, who are they advertising this too? Then it clicked, it was aimed at stay at home moms who like to record their daily soap opera shows on the DVr, because that's what the Xbox one is, giant a$$ DVr.

Rageanitus1764d ago

In all honesty... the gestures are quite cool in xbox..... but they spent a good portion of the time talking to your xbox!... I for sure will not talk outloud to myself seems more like a gimmick than anything.

Where are the games!!

SignifiedSix911764d ago

A touch pad on a controller seems like a gimmick too.

And the games will be at E3 just as they said.

People must not have watched the conference...

Rageanitus1764d ago

yah but a good portion of the conference was pointed towards talking to your xbox.

IMO i could care less about talking to the xbox to do things.

Yes there is a touch pad on the vita and the ps4 controller, but it is NOT a selling point

JP13691764d ago

Maybe you should have been paying more attention, because everything they've revealed thus far points to the leaked specs being true. What this means is that games will suffer due to the bloated OS that is needed to handle all of the features MS shoehorned into the console. They're going to have a tough time convincing a lot of people that they're still serious about the videogame industry. And no matter how many games they show, I will never buy a crippled system that requires me to connect to the internet every 24 hours just for the privilege of playing the game I bought on the console I own. So yeah, some people must not have watched the conference.

DivineAssault 1764d ago

PS4 is a gaming system.. xbox one is a media device that will play multiplats..

Jek_Porkins1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Didn't Microsoft say 15 exclusives in the first year? 8 of which are completely new IP?

You are right on the multiplat thing though, the Xbox One will in the end, play 90% of the same games as the PS4.

They said 15 exclusives, know what that word means? Of the 15 exclusives, 8 are first party games, which debunks what you were saying.

HammadTheBeast1764d ago

They had 15 new games for Xbox 360, half were also on PS2

Reverent1764d ago

You've got to ask yourself though... How many of those exclusive games are going to just end up being Kinect 2.0 shovelware?

Rayansaki1764d ago

15 exclusives sounds like a lot but it really isn't. This isn't 15 AAA boxed titles, just 15 exclusives. Sony has had more than 30 exclusives every year for the past 3. Hell, X360 had more than 15 exclusives in 2011, and it was an awful year for them. It's a very unimpressive number.

ZodTheRipper1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Adding to all that, remember Xbox 360? It started well with exclusives (mostly due to 3rd party like Bioware and Epic which are now multiplat) but quickly lost momentum and became a timed exclusive machine. 15 exclusives in the first YEAR after it's release is a joke for Sony if you count everything (Kinect/Move/Downloadable titles/etc) in so don't be fooled by that number. After E3, PS4 has probably that much at launch since all Sony studios are working on something.

McScroggz1763d ago

First off, clearly the Xbox One isn't designed with gaming as the focus, that's apparent. Aside from that, let's just think about this...

There have been rumors suggesting Microsoft is behind 6 months on its console. If they truly had 15 exclusives and felt confident in them, wouldn't they have shown at least a few at the reveal? Instead they showed us EA Sports games, Call of Duty Ghosts and one 1st party game. Out of those 15, how many will be Kinect games? How many will be XBL games? Will Microsoft count timed exclusives?

Simply put, if you want a game console the XBO isn't for you. The PS4 may not have fancy navigation for your TV, but it will be able to fundamentally do just about everything the XBO can do. The problem is when it comes to games, the PS4 WILL have better performance and Sony WILL have a bigger focus on gamers. To deny this is just being completely oblivious.

JokesOnYou1764d ago (Edited 1764d ago )

Well at the moment I'm pissed about their used game fee 'cause that is really anti-consumer but to say xbox one is less of a games console than ps4 is BS, its just a different game console, which I like because I like the idea of it having all these cool functions but I really dislike some of the things they are doing with DRM/online its a bit too aggressive and controling.

Jek_Porkins1764d ago

Well we don't know what the PS4 looks like, we don't have an accurate price or release date on either. We have no complete launch lineup or specific details really.

I was impressed with the 300k online serviers for Xbox Live though, and dig the controller on the Xbox One, but the PS4 controller looked good too, so I guess I'll have to say I need to wait and see some more games and details.

febreeze11764d ago

I have a more complete picture of sony's launch lineup even through it was 3 months before this xbox reveal. Sony has for almost every genre of games at launch. Shooter=kz:sf platformer=knack racing=drive club open world=infamous second son. Those games alone should satisfy most gamers on top of big multi plat releases such as Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4. Xbox has some new ips (prob some new kinect games and real games). They showed NO gameplay. Worst conference ever...

Jek_Porkins1764d ago

Worst conference ever will always be E3 2005.

GamersRulz1764d ago

anything will look better than the X1, the damn thing is just a cheap plastic box with a BD slot...lazy design on MS part.

also it has inferior specs to PS4, So multiplat will always run better in PS4. and please don't say that we don't know the specs of the ONE, because even if it was 1% stronger than PS4, MS would have SCREAMED superiority and power all over the conference.

Sorry pal, last gen Xbox had Timing,Price and Multiplat advantage over PS3 and ended up last. this time there is NO advantage whatsoever.

it was funny and tragic day lol.

kayoss1764d ago

300k online server is great for the Xbox live but the bigger question is, will they charge the consumers for Xbox live?

Jek_Porkins1763d ago

They already said the subscription carrier over, do you think they are going to have 300k servers and pay for everything themselves? With all those servers, every game should be dedicated servers, even COD.

That is the entire point of servers and that number of servers. If Microsoft is the only console game service to offer that, it's a huge win for core, competitive gamer's like myself. No more lag, no more host migration ect...
