Gamers prefer PS4 over Xbox One, according to social media buzz

GameZone's Matt Liebl writes, "So who won the first round of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One reveal? If you're judging by social media buzz and response, it would have to go to Sony and the PS4. Fizziology, who last week provided us with a social media breakdown of hype leading up to the new Xbox reveal, has followed up with us, revealing that this week's Xbox One reveal "didn't quite live up to gamers' expectations.""

Gamers should wait until E3 to make final judgements.

tell that to Forbes. Tell that to Always On. Tell that to draconian-like DRM restrictions on used games. Tell that to Kinect requirements and XBLive subscriptions in >>> 2013. Something tells me E3 won't fix this hot mess.

4>1

You can't cover sh!t in syrup and tell people it's pancakes.

Eldyraen1163d ago (Edited 1163d ago )

@Maria: They can and they will. However it could still be pancakes in there somewhere... At E3 we get to finally find out what the case may be.

MS though still dropped the ball IMO as the reveal was nothing special. If they had shown it at CES sure but this close to E3 they should had at least one big exclusive game to close with. CoD/EA Sports being shown and partnerships reaffirmed is simply not the same. Even a true CoD live play would had been better than what we got (on par with Modern Warfare reveal--the last one I cared about).

SexyGamerDude1163d ago

MS already told us about their plans to put restrictions on gamers.

Nothing at E3 will fix that.

I think you'll find orange ponchos, cirque du soleil and french miming a new Kinect game might

And microsoft's rent-a-crowd.com subscription will make sure of its positive reaction

@Shadow Flare

What would be too funny is if all the Xbox fans raid the MS conference and actually boo all the things they don't like. I would die.

MS better have a private event this year. LMAO.

admiralvic1163d ago (Edited 1163d ago )

Games can help, but no amount of exclusive / first party (which no offense to M$ fans, but M$ isn't known for) will make up for fundamental problems.

Between requiring the Kinect, that Kinect patent that I guess might restrict you based off the number of people in the room, decreased gaming focus and increased media focus, rumors of 1 online sign in a day being required, HDD can't be replaced and no BC (though Sony couldn't accomplish this either), it will take more than Halo 5 to get people even remotely interested in it.

colonel1791163d ago (Edited 1163d ago )

I don't think the games are the problem, the games will come sooner or later. People obviously felt disappointed when Microsoft focused more on an All-in-One device instead of a gaming machine. However, what is really upsetting everybody is what has been confirmed about used games, some-kind-of-always-on, and having kinect required for the Xbox to function.

EDIT: About used games: Microsoft is not understanding what gamers want. They confirm that people will be able to get used games, but that is not the only problem. What about loaning? They are treating this as if people only buy games for themselves, and never lend or borrow a game.

GT671163d ago

Hell, i'll make my judgement now im sure everyone will agree.

PS4!!!!!!!

Thatguy-3101163d ago

4>1 do the math people ;)
You can bet Sony will bring the big guns at E3. Can't wait!!!

JackBNimble1163d ago (Edited 1163d ago )

4 - 1=3 , I can't believe MS hasn't figured this out yet.

DivineAssault 1163d ago

Sony showed gamers GAMES that are in store for PS4.. Thats all we needed to see... We got a look at the new dual shock, seen the new x86 architecture, seen the ram, & seen how happy devs are with it.. Why wait til E3 to make a decision? MS showed TV, they showed more TV, they showed sports, they showed halo tv, they showed kinect, & showed where its focuses are.. People dont want to install all their games, dont want to pay to play used games on their system, & dont want a system thats 90% dependent on the internet.. I shouldnt say they dont WANT it but im sure most would prefer to own a console thats going to provide plenty of software from both eastern & western dev companies & not just sports or shooting..

wantonGamer1163d ago

Please change your name and your avatar buddy, you're part of the problem.

pop-voxuli1163d ago

No, yesterday was the day to show the goods. Telling a gamer to wait is the kiss of death, E3 is to late.

TheBrownBandito1163d ago

Exactly.

Marketing 101........if you've got it, shout about it.

3-4-51163d ago

Yea E3 and those 15 games are the only thing that can save Xbox One at this point.

I'm saying this as somebody who owns both xbox's and never owned a Playstation in my life.

I may be making the jump, I'm not putting up with this used games BS.....80% of the games I've bought in the last 3 years have been used and it's saved me probably well over $500-700.

I could buy a PS4 + Wii U for that.

That is what Xbox One is going to cost me in used games.

Not to mention I have to install every 15-25 GB game on my HDD. So 500 GB is really only like 100GB of old.

angelsx1163d ago

Before the reveal: let's wait until may 21, all these rumors are lies.
After the reveal: let's wait until E3 where everything will be clear.
After E3: let's wait until it launch so we can see really how it works.

Stop the excuses, deal with it, it is a mess.

Why o why1163d ago

I hear ya kratos, thats how I feel but ms's practices over the past 3 years plus their reveal, we've all been told to 'wait for' has given me enough of an indication as to what system I'm dropping my p on.

All I really expect from ms's e3 is that they redress some of the negativity with games, games and more games NOT tv tv kinect kinect game. So yeah, my final judgement wont be made yet, but I sure have the right to have a preference based on the factors I've mentioned.

Dno1163d ago

im sorry dude but games wont cahnge the fact that some of the features we HATE!

The_Infected1163d ago

Guess everyone is right it's to late to fix this huge mess. Microsoft has lost it. I also have a feeling the PS4 is going to look bad ass on June 10th! That teaser showed some crazy design points. My most looked forward to game is Infamous: Second Son! I just can't wait to see it all! Damn E3 is to far away. Lol

PS4 is still all about games first.

The new Xbox One seems to focus on the complete opposite, making gaming more expensive, adding DRM, blocking 2nd hand games or borrowed/give-away games. Not to mention the focus on TV TV TV TV TV TV TV, and shoving Kinect up everyone's nose, and spying on you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In short: PS4 is about FUN (games!), Xbox One will be about GREED.

Cam9771163d ago

Indeed. It's stupid that the KINECT wasn't integrated into the new XBOX somehow as it is such an important part of the new system. The PS4 will yet again reign supremen, moreover, the PS4 is has 50% MORE raw power than the ONE (I still can't fathom the how STUPID that damn name is).

lifesanrpg1163d ago

Next-gen just seems to be a continuation of this one. The Xbox will continue to become an entertainment hub and get the CoD audience while the PS4 will focus on ALL games.

GreenRanger1163d ago

It only took me about half an hour to completely abandon Microsoft yesterday.
If Sony pulls the same crap with used games at E3, i'll be abandoning them too.

Minato-Namikaze1163d ago

The 1st half hour or the 2nd? lol

GreenRanger1163d ago

@ Minato-Namikaze
It was the first half hour.
The second i found out that Kinect was mandatory i just completely gave up on MS.
I hate Kinect (and motion controls in general), so no feature or game announcement was going to change my decision.

PFFT1163d ago

We will see what Ms bring to E3 HOPEFULLY they will come out guns blazing Cause if not..........well Ms will have to abandon the gaming scene quite early.

DARK WITNESS1163d ago

same here.. I will just skip a gen or the the wii u (dam I never thought i would say that )
