Even if they were completely equal in terms of power....
... I would still go with the PS4 over the Xbox One, after yesterday's 'reveal' and the last 2-3 years of current-gen, where Sony has shown a dedicated focus on GAMES, while MS were more concerned with Kinect and dashboard apps/ads.

i choose both
because i like both. It may not be the same for others but this is my choice.

in terms of specs on paper, they rarely translate into real world performance. specs are a guideline that generally gets exceeded by creative programming.

At used to be like that. Have we become so reliant on the specs that we no longer see the creativity involved in making something work? the theoretical power vs the actual results.

We know both are exceedingly powerful in relation to what we have now. the likely hood we will ever truly see each platform hit its respectable ceiling is almost hard to imagine. There will always be better optimizations in the programming to make something look and play better over time than it did when it first came out.

we have seen that trend since console gaming began over 30 years ago. the evolution within a platform from its inception to its demise has grown every time. We may not see these changes as obvious as they once were but its going to be the things we dont see that will stand out.

graphical fidelity has long been used to gauge the visual presentation. But we are at a point where the eyes cant tell anymore so its all the smaller details that will be the main focus for making the games more enriching.

We have seen the effect of making the car models in GT5 and Forza 4 more realistic. The smooth surfaces and detail on the body and while we will get the 1080p view of things moving forward, its all the smaller details we will start to notice now. Like the treads in the tires and the particles in the air and smoke dissipation will be more natural now.

The hardware really helps to make all that possible but the real talent for making it possible is the programmers themselves. What each platform is looking to achieve is increasing the amount of workspace that the developers can use. Knowing the current limits of things has been quadrupled opens up the possibilities for more deep and involved games.

There will be those who can use these new toys better than others but overall we should see some really great effort in the coming years.

"The hardware really helps to make all that possible but the real talent for making it possible is the programmers themselves."

Unfortunately, Microsoft almost hasn't any of those so your argument is invalid. I can't understand how anyone could buy BOTH consoles. It would have been stupid (at least in most cases) this gen and will be stupid next gen, even if you have too much money. Going with Nintendo as a secondary console is something completely different though.

I'm sorry but I saw no creativity penned up and ready to burst out of the XBOX1. All I saw were rich corporate Aholes schmoozing, winking, and rubbing elbows with other corporate Ahole partners. You could almost see the dollar signs pop out and hover above their heads in anticipation of the upcoming "bounty" they will bring in from the under-educated and ill-informed.

I know we're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover and maybe MS will burst out w/ 8-15 totally new unheard of exclusives at E3 however unlikely, but tell me who you're friends with and I'll tell you who you are.

Why buy both?

If you want a hardcore machine and a soft one its more logical to buy;

PS4 and WiiU
KwietStorm  +   992d ago
I choose PS4, because at this moment in time there is nothing coming from Microsoft that makes me *want* a XB1, not least of which having to pay for multiplayer. On the other hand, Sony seems to have "fixed" every single issue that people had with the PS3, and their first party studios have that exact talent that you were referring to. Microsoft's showing yesterday was an embarrassment, and I will wait til E3 for a "real" showing, but as of right now, all I see is PS4.
darthv72  +   992d ago
It's my thing. i have always bought the platforms within a console generation. I may not start with all of them at the same time but by the end of that gen i have them.

It was like that with the 8 and 16bit days. Then the saturn and ps1 and n64. DC, PS2, GC, xbox etc... its just my thing. I know the majority of games are 3rd party and will be available on multiple systems. But there are just some games you cant play any other way than by having the platform its for.

Its not the same for others and i can respect that.

@madden...thats the thing with creativity, it doesnt come from the system. it comes from within the developers.

There was NOTHING to like about the Xbox One reveal
as a gamer.
How can people be so loyal and so blind. It makes no sense to me.

* Pay to play used/rented/borrowed games otherwise blocked.
* Still pay to play online and access features free elsewhere.
* No bundled headset.
* No backwards compatibility with 360 games.
* Online DRM checks every 24hrs.
* Mandatory installs.
* Always-on Kinect.
* It's a voice-command TV remote with sports and other entertainment apps and less focus on games with...
* ...only 5Gbs of RAM allotted for games, whereas PS4 has 8GBs all unified towards games.

Unless you REALLY love Halo, Gears, Forza and early COD DLC. Otherwise, it is illogical.

You can bet there will be a big difference this time. At least Sony's games will look a lot better. Hopefully we don't have to go through the same crap we did this generation where companies want all games to look the same. Most third party games should have looked better than they did on the PS3.
jmc8888  +   992d ago
Actually you're wrong about 'the hardware'.

The hardware has been available for coders to work on for years.

1.2 TFlops is midrange 2010 stuff. You know like what a $200-300 gpu cost that year.

Thus the hardware doesn't make it possible, because its already been possible, and whats possible out there is far stronger than the xbox one or even the PS4.
iloveallgames  +   992d ago
I was as disappointed in the xbox reveal as anyone and Microsoft has really seemed to move away from what I value as a gamer in the last number of years.

Having said that, the clock hasn't been revealed yet. The PS4 has 18 compute units running at 800Mhz and the xbox does indeed have half as many compute units but it's possible that they are running at a faster clock. It is even possible that the clock could be as high as 1200Mhz (50% faster) which would give it the exact same performance in teraflops as the ps4. PC overclockers commonly jack up the clock well past this and pictures do show that the new xbox has a giant fan and heatsink. Just saying it's possible.
buynit  +   992d ago

Let me confuse you a little more.. I will own all 3!

Why? because i have a job that gives me that luxry but most importantly i dont want to miss any great exclusives from any of the 3 and believe it or not sony isnt the only one with great exclusives, i know its hard to take in... But its true. And i will also have the option of going with the better version of multiplats that will most likely be most of my library anyway.

You see it as stupid... I see it as the hardcore gamer you claimed to be the other day..

cosmoracer  +   992d ago
I have both a PS3 and 360 now. I will get both consoles, but just like I did before, I will buy one at launch and the other after several price drops. I know that 50% more graphical power sounds like a lot, but in reality, it is getting harder and harder to see a difference every time the graphics power doubles. Hence, I really don't think the two will look that much different. I am kinda leaning toward the Xbox One, simply because I think that in the end I will use it a lot more. It's kinda funny how much I use my 360 for everything, but my PS3 is just for a few of their IPs and blue ray. I use the 360 for everything else. I guess I just like the interface and the overall user experience better.

Honestly, I think the PS4 is looking like a better gaming machine (the one you date), but, with all the extra features and total integration, Xbox is the one that will give the best experience (the one you want to marry). I consider myself a gamer, but I also like movies, social, TV... I think Xbox one's real advantage is the multitasking capabilities. I think this will be unappreciated by hardcore gamers, but for normal gamers and regular people- using a PS4 will frustrate the heck out of you after having the multitasking convenience of xbox.

I realize we haven't got all the details on each system, so my analysis may be premature... but it's my 2 cents...

-it cant function with out the kinect and its always going to be on even in standby

im going to miss out on potiental exclusives like a lost odyssy sequal or blue dragon 2 and halo 5 which i would pick up the xbox one by then

but no not when its implementing those negatives i listed, and you mean to say your going to support what is apparently restrictive and invasive product by getting one?

i still respect you because of your past comments are professional but by buying into this you are supporting and giving others nasty ideas to one up us consumers across other platforms leaving Sony

"You could build a game for Xbox one, and it'll port fairly simply straight to PS4 and run faster, guaranteed.

Just like that.

Very little stands in the way of PS4 dominating every single multi platform game on console, no matter which system developers lead on. "

You know MS can simply demand that games are equal on XB1 and PS4 or they are not allowed on their platform right? It is a BS move but hey this is MS we are talking about BS is their second nature. First even.

I used to be an Xbox fan myself....
... hell, I still love my original Xbox and 360.

However, I'm a GAMING fan, so I'm ALSO a PS3 fan, and a Nintendo fan, and a Sega fan. And PC. And Android. I don't care who makes it or on what system. I just want good games to enjoy.

Which is exactly why I complain when they do stupid things. And so should every gamer!

When Nintendo releases a sub-par next-gen console which they hope will sell on an expensive gimmick, but doesn't have proper 3rd party support, we SHOULD moan.

When Sega makes a longgggggg list of bad decisions, ever since the MegaCD and X32, we SHOULD complain.

When Capcom is nickel-and-diming us through DLC-milking, and releasing lazy HD-ports, we SHOULD complain.

When Sony comes up with expensive memorycards and 1-account-per-Vita crap, we SHOULD complain.

And when MS announces all this crap we learned about yesterday, we absolutely SHOULD complain.

It's not about being a fan, or about being a fanboy. It's about being a gamer!

And not just that. It's about being a loyal consumer who should be treated right by those we look towards to, and trust with, providing us with entertainment for years to come, at reasonable conditions.

starchild  +   992d ago
Yeah, I agree. The PS3 offered more this generation. Especially the second half of the generation when Microsoft started really slacking on new exclusives.

The really interesting thing about the PS4 is that I see even some PC gamers like myself switching over to the PS4 as their main platform simply because the PS4 has such a power advantage over the Xbox One that multiplats will likely enjoy a high degree of polish and fidelity, leaving the PC versions only marginally better (and requiring a powerful PC rig to achieve even that).

Sony knocked it out of the ballpark with the PS4. It is the best designed console I have personally ever seen. The PS4 is absolutely going to dominate and define this upcoming generation.

i agree the track record speaks for itself, MS was all about core gamers for first 3-4 years than they saw wii doing gangbusters numbers and totally forgot about their core fanbase

but you know what i see some people defending MS saying we want another halo,forza gears etc, so i guess more power to you if you want the same games every year.

i am at a point in my life where i don't have a lot of time for gaming, so as of right now not even sure i will buy ps4 at launch, but whenever i buy a next gen console it will be a ps4 and that's just because i know what to expect from sony games wise

"I'm not surprised when it comes to hardware Sony always delivers. ;) "

Is the winky emoticon because you're joking? PS1 was complete sh1te compared to the N64 (no alaising, no MIP mapping) and although the PS2 could crunch some numbers Gamecube games generally looked better. RE4 on GC was significantly better looking despite the PS2 version coming out well after the Nintendo version.

People forget that before the utter dogsh1t Wii and Wii U Nintendo used to make awesome consoles.

It's only the PS3 that was the most powerful of its generation.
But it looks like history is going to repeat itself with the PS4. Which I'm perfectly happy with. I'm sensible enough to spend my money on the better product. Hence why I own a PS3 and I'll be buying a PS4 day one.

But those of you older than 15 should remember your gaming history.
PS1 had awesome games that were super easy to pirate. That's what made it popular. But like the Wii it wasn't a good piece of hardware. The N64 absolutely destroyed it specs wise. Especially when you upgraded it with more ram. Check out the original Rogue Squadron vs anything on the PS1.

Just one. ;)

The reveal was not about games. That was pretty clear. Don Mattrick said it himself before and after the event.

The reveal was hard to swallow for gamers, but I think after E3 everybody will be much more at ease. It's going to be a great show, and we will finally fully understand what both Sony and Microsoft are bringing to the table.

Sony's machine might be more capable in terms of graphics, but I can imagine Microsofts online capabilities will be a huge draw. I want to see the meaning of "persistent world MMOFPS" redefined... Like Huxley was supposed to be. Finally something on that scale is within reach.

In any case, I'll be happy with the outcome. I'm already sold on both consoles.

Can you tell me what was so great about the PS4 reveal?

Not that this site is any indicator of the success of a future product (the same sentiment was expressed for the PS Vita - and we all know how that turned out)

Yes they showed more of their exclusive game line up, and also a ton of 3rd parties that will also be coming to X1 -but what separates this console? What are its unique features? Bearing in mind that Microsoft has YET to show its exclusive game line up - reserving that to E3, so games is not really an answer).

The PS4 included lots of games, majority being in-game footage. Not trailers. The Xbox One showed the exact opposite. Two exclusives, both trailers, and pre-rendered CGI. And the PS4 reveal sucked, but shines when compared to THIS. N4G used to be pro-Xbox(ahem, 2009), but we have realized how bad we got screwed over, so we switched to Sony. The PS Vita has sold 5 million, WAAY more powerful than the 3DS, and has FULL compatibility with PS4 games. PS Vita turned out great so far. I don't know what your problem is. The PS4 got way more tech specs, exclusive DLC > timed DLC, showed more games, didn't waste peoples time with TV and APPS bulcrap, and more games. And they STILL have alot more to announce, so "saving the games for E3" is just an excuse so people don't realize that their "major games" are Kinect BS.

Why PS4 stands out? LETS GET STARTED!

No used game fee
More powerful
More Indie support
Headset included
Rchargeable controllers
3rd Party console of choice
8 GB of unified pool of GDDR5 RAM >>> 5 GB of CPU-to-GPU GDDR3 RAM
Free access to online service
No mandatory installs
PS Eye is NOT always on
No 24 Hour DRM checks

@b-real, I think since you asked a genuine question
I'm gonna give you a genuine answer.

At Sony's PS4 reveal, you got the most important thing you could get....
You got Sony's AGENDA.

They told you that they were focusing on GAMES. Sure they got apps, and Netflix and Hulu, and whatever else. Hell, they've got DIRECT TV tie ins now.


You most certainly didn't get that from Microsoft.
iceman06  +   992d ago
It seems to me that Sony has chosen a front to fight the battle of the wallets...and it's games. They came prepared with actual gameplay. Not some pre-rendered stuff. But, real, honest, exclusive games. MS trotted out their 3rd party stuff (as if PS4 won't get the same stuff) and spent most of the reveal talking up what amounts to a spiffy new cable box...that can play some games. We know that E3 is around the corner. But, unless MS has secretly bought up a ton of studios, how many of those 15 exclusive launch titles will actually be AAA titles. There are bound to be plenty of Xbox Live and Kinect 2.0 games that won't garner the same attention as COD, Battlefield 4, etc. Plus, I don't for a second think that PS4 revealed everything that is in their coffers.
oof46  +   992d ago
@b-real: First impressions are everything. I'm sure Microsoft saw and studied Sony's ps4 reveal of what fans say they did right or wrong...and implemented none of those notes.
Edit: Well, they did one better than Sony. They showed the box (it's still ugly).

The one way I can summarize the angst best? They revealed their new gaming console with gaming not at the forefront.

You sound like you own a 360. I do too, and I was majorly disappointed.

When we see the games, and what developers have been abel to do with the improved capabilities of both Xbox Live, Kinect, and the Xbox controller, everyone will be impressed.

Add that to all the amazing capabilities of the dash, apps, and media, coupled with instant switching and always-on matchmaking, I think its going to be the perfect console for me. But, I am the type of person who will be watching netflix, then switch to gaming, then back to netflix, all the while being on the internet/listening to music and any number of other things. Which is why the capabilities of the machine as demonstrated at the reveal are so exciting to me.

I'm excited for a redefinition of the phrase "persistent world MMOFPS'." That, and not having to get off the couch to switch between games. That always ticks me off!

I'll be getting both consoles, anyways. But Xbox One will probably end up being my primary machine. Old habits.

Ms missed that train thats probably why they didnt get into great deal about the power other then its 8 gigs of ram, sony kinda went in on that aspect.

Ms should have either given a whole complete console reveal, as in every detail, or showed a little more games. I think it was fine but i can understand the complaints so they probably should have just waited revealed every detail in one shot at e3 then release it like days or weeks later..

I think something went wtong internaly with ms while working on the xbox one. I dont get how they let sony beat them to the punch with a reveal and a more slid date, ms always said they wanted to be first again.

Sorry guys - none of you come close to convincing me that I missed something. Yes, Sony has some great games in the pipe - that's a given. Yes the graphics will be great (though not THAT much better then Xbox One - lets be honest). But to me those are expected features from a new gen of hardware.

Kinect 2.0, full TV integration and the insane, seamless multitasking abilities of the Xbox One are what has got my interest. Yes it is a games console, however I EXPECT it to have great exclusives, graphics and games. What I am after is the unexpected - the features that are going to change the way I look at what a game console is and what it can do.

And perhaps the most under-looked feature is the use of Windows Azure - Microsoft's cloud platform, which will allow every game infinite dedicated Multiplayer Servers - as opposed to laggy hosted matches on a players console.

Ok so its a fair question and not trolling. While I went in with an open mind and a slant towards favoring the xbox reveal due to my purchase history, Microsoft had also soured me quite a bit with 360 hardware issues. 8 original replacements and number 9 denied due to my email extended warranty running out (great customer satisfaction there). Purchased a newer "reliable 250 GB" version in the slimmer black model on the have it need a replacement, which they did take care of. So at Microsofts conference which dedicated to hardware and vision for this next gen I paid close attention listening for my key concerns to be acknowledged and addressed. Microsoft ignored their mistakes and didn't mention any kind of possible extended warranty for this new box many are predicting to cost $650.00 - $700.00 for extra technology like a built in and required Kinnect system. Almost no mention was made of games or the implication that gaming was one of the core focuses of there design.

PS4 on the other hand talked for an almost straight 2 hours on how their design was based around games and game design. They acknowledged while the cell was powerful it hindered design in game creation and only 1st party and 2nd party game creators needing alot of experience, time, and development tools could ever harness it. It was the reason I still do not own a PS3.

Sony went went on to acknowledge that mistake and were humble in accepting the input from both designers and gamers in making this new system all around gaming, with more power in the machine for gaming. Microsoft is basically doing what Sony did last time and telling me this machine is designed for entertainment other than gaming. I didn't want a blu-ray disc player that also plays games last time and I don't want a home media center this time that also plays games. I'm not rich and have two kids and work hard for a living. My entertainment budget needs to stretch far. Sony seems to be aimed to give me the better video gaming machine when I am looking to buy a video game machine. That would be the reason I was unimpressed with the Xbox One reveal and enthralled for 2 hours during the Sony reveal. Not sure about everyone else, and I'm sure there are a lot of trolls for their system of choice, but for the independent consumer, I feel many probably feel as I do having watched both. Hope this answer helps!

Sony showed hardware specs, games and showed that while they have impoved their online by leaps and bounds they also reminded us that the ps4 is a GAME CONSOLE 1st.

The improved online functionality is build for the gamer so we can have a voice.if you wasnt a little impressed wi th the ps4 reveal you must've had you expection to high, not a real core gamer or need another usher proformence.

Thanks for the response.

I don't quite buy into the aspects of the reveal you mention (ie Sony addressing issues and MS ignoring them) Sony ditching Cel would be a big talking point at a reveal like this - particularly when they talk about the specs of a new console (eg being x86 -a big change).MS were never going to discuss things like warranty extensions at a reveal like this.

However I do see your point around having issues with your previous experience with your 360 hardware. If I had to replace a unit 9 times (as you mention above) then I would have dumped Microsoft a long time ago. I am still on my original 360 (the white pro) and have not ever had an issue. However replacing your 360 8 times does seem like a slight exaggeration to me :)

I'm ignoring the rest of you because you all seem unable to construct even half of what could be considered a decent argument.

joeorc  +   992d ago

I sat down with Yoshida a few hours after the PS4 reveal tonight and one of the first things I asked was whether used games would be blocked.

"Do you want us to do that?" he asked.

No, I said. I think, if you buy something on a disc, that you have a kind of moral contract with the person you've bought it from that you retain some of that value and you can pass it on.

Do you agree, I asked?

"Yes. That's the general expectation by consumers," said Yoshida. "They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's my expectation."

the disc is yours..what does it matter if someone barrows your disc, it was already plaid for!

that's the way Yoshida see's it.

if i want to give my brother the disc i can i do not have to sell it used..i could just give it away.
Corpser  +   992d ago

Used games will not be blocked, you just have to pay a fee lol
bluetoto  +   992d ago
Gotta say I agree with corpser as after going back and re-reading that interview Yoshida never said that there wouldn't be a cost to playing used games, just that they can be played on the ps4 and wouldn't be blocked.

As gamers we shouldn't just shrug this off but keep an eye and ear for more details on the subject.

oan those are not the direct quotes of Yoshida above.

@Corpser and bluetoto - He never said anything about paying a fee, I agree there... But isn't that what blocking means? Having to pay a fee to access a game would be a form of blocking used games. He already stated his expectation was that once you purchase a physical disc, you can use it everywhere. A fee is most certainly a block on used games, any way you look at it.

Raw power doesn't mean a thing as we saw with this gen. PS3 also had the superior tech but most if not all 3rd party games looked identical to each other. Graphics are nice but I'm more worried about gameplay and design. A game could be built in 16 bits as long as it's fun then I don't care.
firelogic  +   992d ago
The major difference being the PS4 is a very standard architecture that devs can program for in their sleep. The Cell, not so much.

So Cell was powerful but you had to know the tricks to get the best performance out of it. The PS4 is extremely powerful AND extremely easy to code for. PS4 versions of multiplats will be held to the same standard as PC versions, with XB1 lagging behind with lower framerate and poorer textures, effects, AI, etc.
maniacmayhem  +   992d ago
It still remains to be seen. I doubt seriously that the framerate or textures will be seriously noticeable for the X1 than PS4. The X1 will also be easy to code and develop for just like the PS4 and since most of the architecture for both systems are the same I doubt you'll see any vast improvements from one console to another since ports will be much easier to handle this time around.

But again, we shall see in a few weeks at E3 and here when the whole graphics compare articles start to pop up again.

while i see what you are saying you are also missing some key talking points.

The on board I/O bandwidth sony already gave out that connection speed. and its looking to absolutly dwarf the xbox one's I/O .

Now you are correct based on a 3rd party game engine stand point you would be correct, but we are talking about what will the 1st party efforts do to really take hold of that hardware and put custom API's for the respective hardware platforms.

Naughty dog for instance made custom tool chains for Playstation 3 hardware, MM and GG also. Microsoft really you have not seen them do that.

that's what will be the key to each of the platforms perception on what will not just in graphic's but game play also.
kneon  +   992d ago
Don't count on it. the X1 has slower ram and just 32Mb of esram for a frame buffer. That's enough for just two HD frames at 16bit/pixel. Since the PS4 has 8Gb of GDDR5 it can use any part of that memory for framebuffers with less copying of data required.

And forget 4K games on the x1 as they've made the same stupid mistake as they did on the 360 with their 10Mb of edram. Making a framebuffer too small to hold even a single frame is a PITA for developers. They have to break up each frame into pieces for processing.

I have to disagree.

Because the architecture is so similar and easy to code for it will be very easy and quick (and therefore cost efficient and financially viable )for developers to optimize their games for the PS4.

The only thing that will hold multiplatform games back on the PS4 is if MS enforce their greedy, childish, draconian policy of requiring multiplatform games to not perform better on competing consoles.

It should be just as mediocre on both systems. PS3 was harder to develop for, but PS4 was designed with a lot of developer input.

If anything, PS4 users seem to have at least some ammo to complain about multiplats being held back by One next gen, or they will have anyway unless new info comes to light.

Depending on whether or not MS enforces a policy on their 3rd party games of games not performing better on opposing consoles, or company's won't be able to sell their product for the Xbox console.

"In terms of the GPU hardware, hard information was difficult to come by, but one of the engineers did let slip with a significant stat - 768 operations per clock. We know that both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are based on Radeon GCN architecture and we also know that each compute unit is capable of 64 operations per clock. So, again through a process of extrapolation from the drip-feed of hard facts, the make-up of the One's GPU is confirmed - 12 compute units each capable of 64 ops/clock gives us the 768 total revealed by Microsoft and thus, by extension, the 1.2 teraflop graphics core. So that's another tick on the Durango leaked spec that has been transposed across to the final Xbox One architecture and the proof we need that PlayStation 4's 18 CU graphics core has 50 per cent more raw power than the GPU in the new Microsoft console."
nypifisel  +   992d ago
No you've misunderstood!

The PS4 GPU is 50% more powerful than the X1 GPU
The X1 GPU is 33% less powerful than the PS4 GPU

Look at it like this:

X1 = 100 (50/50)
PS4 = 150 (50/50/50)

PS4 is 50% better and X1 is 33% or 1/3 worse. It's called percentage and anyone who know some basic maths would know this. So both is right, you should however always start from the smaller number. So PS4 is 50% better.

DUH!!! Who wouldve thought otherwise?? The xbox one has that revised Kinect bundled with every system & to keep it affordable they had to cut back on horsepower.. PS4 has a basic camera so they were able to put more power into the console while keeping it affordable so im betting both will be about $400 USD, x1 will have a more precise camera but multiplats will be inferior while PS4 will have a camera for the ability to run games needing it but it will be more like the current kinect & multiplats will be best on it console wise.. Im going with PS4 for sure.. Motion gaming isnt my thing & i dont care to switch between tv & games by talking to it, I can press the button on my remote just as fast.. Sony made their console perfect for my taste & have the best amount of games.. I wonder if MS decision to do mandatory installs on games so they dont have to use blu ray for software.. They can do like PCs & use DVDs to insert & install.. It has a blu ray drive but its possible that its for movies..

I cant EFFIN wait to get that dual shock 4 in my hands & power on the PS4!!!!! Im super pumped for nx gen & i know sonys machine is going to run games buttery smooth & games will look better on it too.. 50% more power is no small feat..

If the Playstation 4 had been a bit less powerfull than the HTC1 I would have got it anyway, I happily game on Sony platforms and see no reason to change, I want the best software. (and free online gaming)
Now we know that the PS4 specs beat the competition buy a lot and that is important as I am now used to Sony having the best Hardware. PS3 was more powerfull than the 360, fact, and it had more functionality. Yet, the media tried to kill it, 360 was easier to develop for - and good on Microsoft for that, I mean it, they had a successfull system,it was cheaper and had a 1yr+ market lead, and the game development community hated the Cell. But PS3 outsold it.
After a successfull PS1 and PS2 the Playstation 3 was Sony's failure, where they lost direction, and still outsold the 360. (Wii was a fad that people are over, explaining WiiU being DOA). Most importantly though, PS3 is still supported by Multi-Plats like GTA5, and of coarse the heavyweigh exclusive titles to the end of 2013 at least.
If thats how a Playstation fails then I can not wait to see them back on form with Playstation 4. Common Architecture, loads of power, development community all onbord this gen, pasionate game developers calling a lot of the shots now instead of just corporate types.
And I certainly don't believe that PS4 will be lacking in functionality, whatever bells and whistles it has won't be compromising the games. I'm only happy because I like Sony's gaming franchises. Sony 1st party games will amaze, I can't imagine what Naughty Dog and Polyphony will acheive.

And if you do, you are supporting corporate greed and are contributing to the degradation of this amazing hobby by enabling MS to block used games and enforce DRM. Nothing at E3 is going to change this.

Everyone who has purchased any type of hardware should know by now that confirmed specs "on paper" usually mean nothing. The Xbox was more powerful than the PS2, Sony still came on top. PS3 was more powerful than 360, Microsoft came on top and a lot of cross platform games looked better on the Xbox. Shift, even the Nintendo 64 was more powerful than the original playstation, and looked how that turned out. So what's on paper regarding specs means nothing, most adults know that. It's how the developers use the system. I remember how the "Cell" in the PS3 was supposed to be powerful, but I never seen that as mostly all games were identical on the Xbox

10% I don't agree > "...PS3 was more powerful than 360, Microsoft came on top..."
PS3 sales are above 360 by +140.000 every month, USA is the only place where Xbox wins...

Well the OS is also taking up more RAM for the One so i am sure it contributed.

Limit me hit you with some knowledge they don't want you to know. there was a written rule in the Game Developer contracts that they could not up their resolution/graphics on other consoles. That is why multiplat games look similar to their other ports. They had to do games timed, so they couldn't really work on the games. They had to ship out as soon as possible to meet deadlines or risk paying breach of contract fees. That is why you see ports on to the PS3. If the Game Developers took their time with PS3 games, all PS3 versions would look like Uncharted games. It is that their contracts with 360 forced them to be limited. 360 was the easiest to develop, so they worked on that one first, then the PS3

Look at the lens of truth YouTube videos the ps3 and Xbox 360 are both equally powerful sometimes more the Xbox sometimes more the ps3
