Xbox One Vs. PS4 – Who Won The Gamers?

SegmentNext - "With Microsoft finally revealing Xbox One, it is time to take a look at how it fares with PS4 with regards to the wants of the core-gamers" (PS4, Xbox One)

I think it's safe to say, the PS4 did. Ms better come out swinging at E3

PS4: Aimed at gamers and developers
Xbox One: aimed at people who are too lazy to reach for the remote to change the channel.
guitarded77  +   332d ago
Ouch...

But yeah, PS4 clearly focused on gamers while XBOX One is looking at the living room.

I really don't even get the appeal there. One of my biggest pet peeves is automated call trees where you "talk" to the computer instead of "press 1 for... press 2 for..."

I have absolutely no desire to voice command my TV or console. And amusingly enough, it actually requires more energy (and time) to wave your arms around to change screens and soforth than to click a controller button.

I wonder if people will start seeing more personalized ads on their dashboard... Google has previously discussed systems that remotely activate webcams/microphones and serve advertising based on ambient sound.

And it'll be interesting to see if there ends up being a case where Kinect records or feeds are accessed in a criminal investigation. Go ahead and scoff... the FBI did it with OnStar (it was subsequently ruled that they couldn't do it because it would interfere with the vehicle owners' use of OnStar while it was being tapped, but it was essentially okay if they could engineer the system to listen in without locking out the owner).

I cant be the only person who would rather just push a button than bark orders at a console all day.

XBOX! Play games!
XBOX! Watch TV!
XBOX! Play Bluray!

By the time youve said Xbox, I would have pressed to button already. In fact I wonder if its just a subliminal advertising gimmick to have the name Xbox Xbox Xbox repeated over and over till you wake up in the night thinking Xbox. Repetition works.

I read in my local news paper earlier

"The exclusive DLC is what really got gamers talking"

I was shocked, it was represented in a good light..exactly the opposite.
HammadTheBeast  +   332d ago
For some reason, it's looking like all the Newspapers are bought out. They gave PS4 so much **** for the same things Xbox One does, like no BC.

But they haven't said a word of its problems.

E3 LAST chance for Microsoft.

Xbox fans are let to die with Kinect and television programs and are reverting to the ultimate NEXT GEN gaming system that is the PLAYSTATION 4.

Next gen systems

PS4

Upcoming Cable set top box.

Xbox one.

I'm not sure if Microsoft could swing its way out of a wet paper bag at the moment.
Foxhound922  +   332d ago
Sad, but ultimately true.
starchild  +   332d ago
Oh hell yes the PS4 did! I have gamed on PC more than anything this generation, but Sony built such a beautiful, efficient, and well-rounded console in the PS4 that I think I may choose to game on PS4 as my primary gaming device.

Pupose of xbox reveal: showcase console abilities and focus on games during E3
Xbox E3: Only games! 18 exclusives released all in a years time span.
PS4 E3: Bet you a million bucks you will hear irrelvant/non gaming apsects of the console. Wonder who will be bitching then.
Xbox One Specs: ddr3? Unknown, doesnt matter! Check out the xbox one architecture panel. enlighten yourself. Xbox will have 300,000 servers, microsoft azure cloud computing service to offset the processing load to cloud. Will allow developers to offset computation for engine physics,AI, and rendering.
PS4's online service may just be comparable to xbox 360 current live service.
Those who hate kinect are problably antisocial... No offense.

Happy Xbox One owner scenerio. Enter living room,"Xbox on"..."Check whos online" ..."Call Jake"(skype)... "Hey wassup want to play forza",,,,, "Xbox play forza"... "switch to tv"... "Hey jake news says it'll be raining tommorow guess we can finish halo 5 tommorow",,, jake responds, "ok, man is that cheetos I see you eating making me hungry, hurry up though switch back, are match is about to start". "Skype end call" Epicness!

Happy PS4 owner scenerio: Enters living room, looks for controller, fails to find controller,, walks to console, turns it on. Searches friends with joystick, no friends are online, searches for "play game option" game starts.

Xbox One is future proof.
Hate it or not this is the future of a great gaming experience.

It takes a true fanboy to defend the direction of the Xbox one. I hope you feel righteous now because you will be singing a different tune come launch. Actually probably not, Microsoft could make a system that only plays the windows 98 version of solitaire and you would call it a marvel. So much of what you said about the social "status quo" of future ps4 owners is pure fanboy nonsense. The ps4 will offer the same, if not better cloud and streaming services, except for the fact that it will be free, and probably not required to play games. Let me guess? You love the fact of not being able to play used games as well? You probably also love the fact that the console will require kinect. Most of all you probably love the fact that MS is abandoning their core audience. I feel sorry for your kind. Playstation and Xbox fans almost unanimously disagree with the direction of the Xbox one, yet people like you will defend it to the death regardless of its faults. As for your E3 prediction, that was the most illogically conceived prediction I have ever had the displeasure or reading. You remember the last 4 e3's don't you? Where Microsoft promised tons of exclusives and delivered nothing? Also, do you remember how even at standalone console reveal, Sony managed to showcase multiple promising exclusives and win the hearts of devs, gamers, and investors alike. The PS4 is going all out, starting with games, and building the social aspects around them, not the other way around. Of those "exclusive" games you say, I bet you 80% of them will be gimmicky shovelware games targeted at the causal crowd. Grow up buddy and give up the blind rage.

There's a lot more wrong with the Xbox 1 than lacking games. no amount of games shown at E3 is going to fix the requiring of internet, locking games to a single profile, and requiring kinect
Foxhound922  +   331d ago
Bubs to you sir
SexyGamerDude  +   332d ago
The PS4 won the gamers. MS hate gamers and wants to put as many restrictions on them as possible.

My money is behind Sony right now, but we still got a bunch of time for Microsoft to step their game up.
Kingthrash360  +   332d ago
agreed but sony has just as much time to get even better....
MysticStrummer  +   332d ago
Yeah hopefully Sony has stopped laughing at the One reveal by now. They need to stay focused and not get cocky. They should release at least a little info between now and E3. Nothing major, but maybe some new game footage or some detail that highlights PS4's superiority.
xamtheking  +   332d ago
While the PS4 hasn't had a reveal yet, the non-existant reveal STILL did better than the Xbox One reveal
TKCMuzzer  +   332d ago
In a way your right. Sony wanted to show what he machine was about and some people moaned about no hardware being shown. Microsoft showed the hardware and look where that got them. Sony still have that one to pull at E3, making their conference a must watch.
khowat  +   332d ago
Obviously the ps4

But MS is being shady

they toot their horn about 15 new exclusives and 8, 8! new ips and where were they to be found at the press conference

they have something for e3

whether or not its enough to overshadow this horrible reveal

we just have to wait and see

plus we all know like 50% of the people on this website love playstation so this place is a wasteland for MS and Nintendo
Conzul  +   332d ago
Eh, more like 90% there mate.
MysticStrummer  +   332d ago
"we all know like 50% of the people on this website love playstation so this place is a wasteland for MS and Nintendo"

It used to be quite different. I found this site in the summer of 07 and was amazed at the anti-Sony attitude here.
MrMayhem28  +   332d ago
Sony is leading right now it could change but sony is in the lead by far.
sway_z  +   332d ago
WINDOWS KERNEL, 3 OPERATING SYSTEMS....LOTTA CRASHING??

TBH I have yet to see the Xbox One do anything that PC or PS4 can't do...in fact my Samsung TV and Sky box has everything covered for entertainment TV etc....

Do you really wanna take fuzzy Skype calls during a movie? ..how many of us care that much about TV shows to spend $400 on a Xbox One?

Weird direction for MS.

MS is distancing themselves from the gamers. Between the thoughts of always online, used game fiasco, and an all in one multi-media box is a huge turn off.

Sorry, but I don't think arm graphics and a dog will persuade gamers to buy an xbox1.

Even people on the Xbox forums are complaining of MS. Tis a sad month for Xbox fans.
Kingthrash360  +   332d ago
yeah it true... I mean they were trolling ps3 saying just wait till the 21st ...now its so bad sony fanboys trolls can even troll ...everything they said is true and MS flopped worse than Vlade Divac.
JBSleek  +   332d ago
Too early to tell E3 is the proper forum to know.

Saying who won at this moment is kinda idiotic.
Conzul  +   332d ago
The odds of what is evidenced being false are minimal.
solidworm  +   332d ago
MS are shitting their pants over Google and Apple, theyl soon be shitting their pants over Sony when the psQuad fucks them over.
greatcrusader44  +   332d ago
Xbox One is such a failure. I gave MS a chance, ignored the rumors, and just stood by and said "PS4 looks amazing, but I'll wait til I see the new Xbox to see which one I'll get first."

Conference f*cking sucked, even then I was like "OK that was sh*t but I'll wait til E3 just to make sure."

Almost always online console. "Oh its not always online, it just has to be connected at least once a day." Oh blow me Phil.

Even that I can MAYBE deal with, but used game fees... not a simple $5, which is bull anyway, but FULL PRICE. And the game is not just registered to your console, its to your account., so your bro wants to play your game? $60 B*TCH, pay up. Buy a $30 used game at gamestop because its 2yrs old and there aren't any new copies anymore? Pay an additional full price for it. $90

Had all 3 consoles this Gen, Xbox was prob my main since I got it first, but as of now just the thought of me owning a Xbox One makes me laugh.
KillrateOmega  +   332d ago
Well, it's pretty obvious that Sony is leading right now in terms of gamer support.

Who is winning in terms of TV jockey support is another matter entirely.

I pick ps4 and wiiu cause they both are about gaming and im a gamer, ms seem to be leaning towards entertainment when game consoles should be about gaming, im mean it was cool with all the stuff they showed but I already have netflix I dont care much for sports so xbox just doesn't appeal to me.
steven83r  +   332d ago
MS problem is they lack exclusives. Everyone is hyped up over COD Ghost and other games they showed but to me that is not a selling point when you show games all systems will have. Sony came out with gameplay of exclusive titles for the most part. That to me shows who is more vested in their hardware. Also MS has to buy companies to make games for them while companies flock to Sony and decide to be with them.
swishersweets20031  +   332d ago
I've come to the conclusion that there is actually no reason at all to even buy a physical copy of any xboxone game. You cant trade it, cant borrow it, you install it, never use the disc again, and the only person you can trade the game into is microsoft themselves. You might as well buy it digital only.
I'm very curious to see over time what exactly are they going to pull on their trade in system. Pull some gamestop methods of giving you 50cents for 30$ games? In a whole this hurts business and small mom and pop games stores trying to sell you xbox merch.
Nothing about the xbox to me shines anything user friendly.. just like windows 8 just pure garbage. Its sad that they are forcing you to buy kinect with the xbox. No one likes kinect. Not one person i know came off saying wow that kinect was great. Now lets do kinect 2.0?
