PS4 vs. Xbox One: I Know Which One I'm Buying

After seeing the PS4 reveal a couple months ago, and now the Xbox One reveal that just happened, here are some initial pre-E3 reactions towards the showdown.

The story is too old to be commented.

So sad to have supported this brand for over a decade and for the past few years, many of us gamers have held out hope for Microsoft to see the light. They have not and have failed us. Do they not realize it’s us, the gamers, that will be there waiting in the rain to buy their console, not the soccer moms! I will give them a final pass till E3 then many of us can move away from the Xbox brand. Sad day yesterday.

Personally yeah I'm all about the games, and on sites like this the xbox one will be trashed since its a site for actual gamers.

But just look at the original wii, it was a joke and yet it made a killing. Better doesn't always translate to success.

Brazz1133d ago

The WII was an isolated case, so it was a success because it had appeal to casual (casual living today in the world of tablets and smartphones and consoles consider secondary objects) because both ps3 and xbox360 was a big crap in the beginning, high price, "lights of death", etc ... and, finally, the PS3/360 cannibalize each other's market, if the 360 (or ps3) were alone he would probably already be in the region of 120 million

Well said I can tell that came from the heart

PS4 VS. XBOX 1: i know which one im buying.

me too PS4 all the way baby!!!!!!!!

after that DISASTROUS CONFERENCE

Nunchez1134d ago

Yeah exactly if they don't show something awesome at E3 I'm done. As of now its its not looking good at all.

raWfodog1134d ago

I love the Playstation brand but, as a gamer, I'm seriously hoping that MS turns this around. I play the games that I want regardless of the system. I own console from all of the big 3. If there are fanboys out there hoping for the demise of the Xbox brand, please realize that competition breeds innovation and we need these two (maybe 3) corporations to keep the pressure on each other.

UltraNova1134d ago

Gotta to agree with you on some extend but no one can deny the fact that MS used hardcore players like a lot of us here to give a shot on living room domination..it took them some time but the xbox one revealed their plans..

@Icarus1970
As much as I agree with you I hope people here realize that just because MS is leaving the core gamers hanging, doesn't mean doom for them. In fact what they are doing is cashing in, they may actually stand to benefit from their moves. They may outsell the PS4 which would be an even sadder day than yesterdays announcement. I really hope that Sony can focus on the hardcore while at the same time incorporating the casuals to a degree where both can survive otherwise we have to say goodbye to hardcore gaming on consoles as we know it.

3sexty rulzzz1133d ago

totally agree with your comment. It was and is a sad day for gaming, not just for us xbox fans but for gaming in general. I hate that it had to come to this. All of those green boxes I have under my tv will stay there. I will not buy the xbox one... no more live subscriptions for me

Now i understand why EA dropped their online pass bull

This industry is going down hill...

Pintheshadows1134d ago

I knew worse news was in the offing when they announced they were dropping them. Sad times.

hesido1134d ago

Yes, I hope Sony is not in on this either. Remember the trash talk EA did on Nintendo, could it be partly because they did not give in to second hand offline pass fees?

I don't think MS can act alone in this, but there may be some sort of agreement between two major console producers, under pressure from publishers. If MS does this thing alone, it is madness, that's why I think they can't be so brave and Sony may have also bent under pressure (I sure hope not)

Conan-O-Brady1133d ago

That could very well be what went down. E3 is gonna be very interesting.

Nunchez1134d ago

And here I thought EA were coming to their senses. Damn.

Jek_Porkins1134d ago

I know which one I'm buying too!

ger23961134d ago

I think we all know which one your buying.

MRMagoo1231133d ago

how in the hell does this jek porkins guy have that many bubbles when he is a 360 fanturd and this site is "run" by sony fans apparently?

Hicken1133d ago

Yeah, everybody knows which one you're buying. You couldn't say no to the Xbox if it killed your dog, made strudel out of it while you watched, and forced you to eat it.

As a gaming console- and we're all gamers here, right? so that's what we should be most concerned with, right?... right?- the Xbox showed little to nothing exciting. In fact, it hinted at or outright displayed many things we should be vehemently discouraging.

But not you. No, you'll stick by Microsoft no matter what. Despite how blatantly anti-gamer and anti-consumer it is, you'll be there day one to throw away your money.

Yet, somehow, you have the nerve to call ME fanboy. And name me among the ranks that supposedly run this site, while you keep collecting bubbles.

There is NOTHING about this that makes sense. Not your blind loyalty, not your proclamations of fanboyism, not how this site works. Frankly, I'm having a hard time believing you're not a more articulate version of urwifeminder, who's obviously a troll, as no one can possibly SERIOUSLY still think the Xbox One is better than the PS4.

N47H111134d ago

At the end of the day, im going to buy a games console to play games, and for me Sony has shown alot more in the way of games on the PS4 than Microsoft has for the Xbox one.

hennessey861134d ago

But you would be a complete tit to write off the Xbox just yet, I'm waiting until E3 then I will decide

Raf1k11134d ago

A lot of us have been saying a similar thing for the past few years. This E3 will be MS's last chance to convince me to buy an Xbox One.

SexyGamerDude1134d ago (Edited 1134d ago )

At E3 they will be showing games. After what I heard about they One at the PR, even if they have good games, it's a no no. Too many restrictions and Nickle and diming. You have to pay a fee to play used games, pay a fee for online, and also pay the fees for the Streaming companies. On top of that, they aren't setting restriction on the pricing. So you can get charged 70 dollars for a game if that's what they wanted.

I am a Xbox 360 owner and I had hopes for this. I thought MS actually cared for the gamer. Now I see that they are nothing but money whores.

I will say this though.

PS3 > 360 = Hell no!

PS4 > One = Yeah, looks like it.
