I don't think Playstation / Sony will struggle with the XONE at all. Actually, I honestly think both systems will do fine.

"Sony's going to be thinking 'what shall we do for the next ten years?'"

umm, the same thing they've been doing for the last 7 years and will do so with the remaining 3 years of the PS3's 10 year plan, coming out with more know, the reason why you buy a console to begin with...

'Plastation 4 will struggle against xbox one' pissing off its fanbase


thechosenone1552d ago

After seeing the huge..HUGE backlash the Xbone has gotten just over the past two days tells me that it's Xbone will be the one that languishes next-gen. And I'm starting to truly believe that MS won't make it out next-gen in one piece. I think Nintendo will have a resurgence and the Steam Box will pick up MS' slack.

b163o11552d ago

OH! I've totally forgotten about the steambox. I think the strambox will be better then the X1, mainly cause they'll offer the same game, minus exclusives, for a cheaper price, don't have to pay to play, wouldn't have to overpay for DLC, it goes on and on. I really think that M$ is almost where they've always wanted to be, integrated in the living room. PS4 is about and will be about the games...

Struggle in the tv department perhaps

sikbeta1552d ago

PS4 = just games, some social features, online, kind of the same as 7th Gen

XO = games + social features + online + tv + dvr + OS + apps + cloud + more

PS4 = PlayStation Gamers

XO = broad appeal: Gamers + COD players + NFL fans + TV users + Social junkies and more people...

Come on bless them.the x box faithful have literally nothing to show from the reveal in terms of gaming, especially on a site such as n4g
So they got to spread stupid articles such as these in order to keep the system relevant in terms of gaming.

As far as I'm concerned, from what I've seen as a gamer from the reveal the, xbox1 has nothing to interest will have to take an impressive showing at e3 to win me over but somehow I don't see that happening.

As a gamer who has favored MS products in gaming for the past decade+ over ALL others. I will say without a doubt, as long as the consoles are similar in price at launch, Sony will strongly outsell the X1 worldwide BUT MS "might" hold on to North America since their X1 appears to be tailor made for this region and they have a big user base here.

I am not liking the X1 even a little bit. It appears MS made compromises to the X1 hardware to make it a more efficient multimedia hub. Gaming is no longer their primary focus and I'm a gamer.

If I want to social network, watch sports and movies? I have tablets, smart phones, smart TV's (2 of which that have motion controls which I never use. Tried them once or twice but don't use them now), broadcast receiver that has apps and a gaming PC hooked up to my triple panels in my gaming room.

I can watch sports, surf the web, game and text or social network all at the same time now. I don't need to purchase an entertainment hub when I already have the best of all worlds.

I need a new gaming console that's primary focus is giving me the best games possible not an all in ONE device when I, like most, already have it all.

Elit3Nick1552d ago

Lol I'm likely getting the Xbox one and even I see this article as nothing more than for getting hits. XD

shoddy1552d ago

N4G really heat after May 21.
I had fun reading comments.

jrbeerman111552d ago

Based on reveals,

ps4 will have more games and be more dev friendly and indy friendly,

xbox1 will use cutting edge tech to replace the input button on my tv remote.

pixelsword1551d ago (Edited 1551d ago )

The PS4 will struggle... keep their stock supplied in stores.

X1 to the next 1.

RedDevils1551d ago

This article will make xbox fanboy feel so much better lol

insomnium21551d ago


You have it all? I doubt it. You don't have all the fees that come with XB1's online. XB1 comes riddled with all kinds of fees and restrictions that make all other consoles feel decades old.

Also you can't TELL your devices to start up and stuff. You have to push buttons and that's sooooo last last gen and ancient history. What is this like 2009?

seanpitt231551d ago

Well I will be buying shares in Sony thats how confident iam in Microsoft lol

CommonSense1551d ago (Edited 1551d ago )

I am in the minority on this site because I prefer my 360 over my ps3. in fact, i almost never play my playstation. but, after that xbox reveal, i can safely say that if i get a system at launch, it will be a ps4.

the problem i have, however, is that i love gaming online, and i absolutely cannot stand the sony community. it is teaming with rabid fanboys that completely ruin the gaming experience. N4G is a prime example of this. Just look at these ridiculous comments. immature hypocrites.

perhaps i'll just continue to favor PC.

DirtyMagician1551d ago (Edited 1551d ago )


If you are going to do a comparison, then don't just pick and choose what to say about each console just to make one look better. It's a waste of time.

From each reveal so far PS4 is focused on games and Xbox One is focused on TV. That's how I feel after both reveals.

"PlayStation 4 Will Struggle Against Xbox One"

No it won't.

Bobby Kotex1551d ago

Or they're a bunch of click whores. Anyone who clicked on that article fell for it.

Cam9771551d ago (Edited 1551d ago )

They're so butt hurt that their butt ceases to exist. Yes, they are that butt hurt.

ThanatosDMC1551d ago

Check out this rabbid xbox fanboys sucking on kinects gonads.

It's ridiculous that they would rather have TV and that failure kinect than actual games.

The PS4 should be fine because it has the core gamers market. The XO should also be fine too (if the price is right) because it's targeting the non-core market. Each market still attracts millions, depending on geo location.

No doubt the PS4 will be the fastest next gen console in terms of raw power (more CUs + GDDR5), but price, latency, and power wattage can also be higher. The XO is just better in thermal/performance balance. Hopefully next gen games will tell us which one has better real world performance.

SynGamer1553d ago

Until we have the full details on the hardware for each system, it *appears* the PS4 has a slight performance edge. That said, MS's reveal yesterday completely turned me off. It felt like a "hey, don't forget about me" show, very disappointing. Considering how bad the reveal went yesterday, Sony is in a good position to capitalize at E3. They just need to make sure they show and say the right things.

nthstew1551d ago

Xbox one may succeed in Metropolitan areas in USA not ouside that because of high bandwidth for online requirement and paying for used games.
outside USA most of the countries will Don't care about american sports, Netflix and other media stuffs other than playing video games on a console.

eliasg1551d ago

I am an XBOX fan but i wished every one here would have been as constructive commentator as yours mate.

Thatguy-3101553d ago (Edited 1553d ago )

It has shown that Microsoft can't compete against Google and apple which clearly show the direction they're going with. Sony isn't it's main competitor anymore which clearly gives them the upper hand as THE gaming console.
4>1 simple math ;)

DonFreezer1551d ago

Which areas of the Xbox One will you be focusing on at your E3 presentation?


Major Nelson (Larry Hryb):
Games. Games. GAMES :)

Care to explain this comment by Major Nelson ps drones.I have watched almost all the Microsoft E3 presentations from 2008 and after and they never said anything like this before.So expecting Microsoft to blow our minds with the number of exclusives.

kenshiro1001551d ago (Edited 1551d ago )

Just like they did last E3?


DarkZane1551d ago

Too bad Sony will also focus on games, rendering the M$ focus on games completely irrelevant.

linkenski1552d ago

Fuck, i disagreed with you because of your first sentence. I can't take it back :(

Conan-O-Brady1552d ago

I gave him an agree to make up for your disagree, I also gave you a bubble up for being so

linkenski1550d ago
