Sony must have loved the xbox reveal yesterday lol but honestly the direction that Microsoft is taking isn't all that surprising seeing how the 360 changed as years passed by. I'm looking forward to their e3 conference to see if they dig them self deeper into a hole or miraculously turn things around. Sony on the other hand needs to keep their A game because as of now they are the one's with the positive buzz. E3 is going to be hell and I'm glad I requested that day from work lol.

Lets face it the way things are going a lot of the people aren't going to give it the second chance it deserves.

Im still skeptical about MS cloud approach(which is nothing like Sony's). I just dont see Developers embracing having to distrubute tasks to the cloud, when we all know they choose the easiest way to do things.
Also i dont fully fathom how much can be gained from this kind of distributive processing, i hope to see something at E3.

Not only did the PS4 stomp the X1 in a poll propositioned by one of the internet's biggest gaming publications, it got almost identical results in polls from two of the biggest gaming forums in NeoGAF and GameFAQS.

The best part? Nobody can even claim fanboyism with such lopsided results from multiple sources. Even some of my friends, who up till recently would've jumped off a bridge had Microsoft requested it, were laughing throughout the X1 reveal and ended up asking me when they could preorder a PS4.

Microsoft certainly should be worried.
Angeljuice  +   993d ago
But they're not.... They've milked the gamers as much as they can and decided that it's not a big enough market for them. Even if they lose 50% of their current gamers, they figure they'll make even more money from the casual market and tech whores. It will probably outsell the PS4 because the potential user base is much bigger, its just that the vast majority won't be gamers.

Yes you can sell or trade your games but you have to pay fee for playing used games?

Exactly... Now all sony has to do to blow everyone away and seal xbox coffin is to start E3 by stating something along the lines as this "Like we have always told you before our sale are doing fine, our install base is ever stable, and the future looks bright. But enough about that because we only have games to bombard you guys with..." Booom booom booom one after another, after another, after another, 1 hour into the conference.... another, after another reveals of games. Then they finally leave Just the right amount of golden minutes to mention that you will all be doing this on the PS4. BOOM out with a bang. *Kaz somehow has a mic on hand and tosses it and walks away like a boss*
Pintheshadows  +   994d ago
I thought much the same. If they go here is what is on PS3 this year. Show logos for Beyond, TLoU, GT6. Show a couple of Vita exclusives and then move onto PS4.

Unveil the actual console which is one of the first of the line and have Mark Cerny come out with Knack in a PS4 gamecase to show that off and then actually put it in the PS4, show of the new OS and then play his game live on an actual PS4.

Then show a race in Driveclub and Infamous gameplay and then move on to the things we don't know about. God, if they show The Last Guardian on PS4 and Versus as well my brain will pop and i'm sure there will be bigger surprises.

I think ND will show 1866 and it will be a spiritual prequel to Uncharted but a swashbuckler with swordfights and galleon battles instead of shooting.

Maybe it's me but I think some people just see what they want to.

The DDR3 plus small fast eSRAM for the Xbox One can get to the GDDR5s peak performance from the PS4. The GDDR5 will be better in general for the GPU no doubt, but much will be offset by the eSRAM. The questoin is how much will GDDRs high latency hurt the CPU in the PS4?

The cpu is running on low frequency ~ 1.6 GHz which is half the frequency of most mainstream processors. And the PS4 GDDR5s latency is double the Xbox One's DDR3 latency.

GDDR5 has around ~8-10x worse latency compared to DDR3. So the CPU in the PS4 is going to be hurt by this. Everybody's talking about bandwidth but the Xbox One is going to have such a huge latency advantage over the Ps4's Ram, that maybe in the end it's going to be better off.

I would also have to give Xbox One the software advantage for developers. I will get both consoles day one. But, Though it looks like the Ps4 a little more raw power, it also has much worse latency. Let's wait and see what actual developers have to say.

But this is where I think Xbox One will trump the ps4 in regards to sales.

A. When parents, noobs, and your every day buyer compares consoles...They will look identical in regards to numbers. 8 gigs of ram, blah blah blah...They don't know nor care which is slightly more powerful. But, what they will see is all the EXTRA stuff the xbox One can do and the constant commercials that will tout all the cool things Xbox One can do..I also believe that the Xbox One will either cost the same as the Ps4 or a little less. Either way it will look like a better deal for MOST buyers.

Now sure there will be some geeks that will SCREAM that the ps4 has more raw power! But will that matter in the end if the games look very very simular? I actually believe there is a good chance that the xbox One will look as good or better in terms of graphics than the Ps4. I say that because of my previous statements.

Latency & software! Xbox One has the edge clearly in both.

Remember the ps3 had more raw power than the xbox 360...but did it matter in the end? NOPE! Most games look better on the 360 and it sold better in the USA. To be honest, I live in the USA and I could care less how either console does outside of my country. I play game with friends online. All my friends live in the United States.

I don't get paid from console sales. I'm just a gamer who buys every console every generation and I just want to play Great Games!
Gamer1982  +   994d ago
software?? 360 didnt have the best nor most software it sold better because of price and it was out first and ONLY in the US. In the rest of the world even at a cheaper price it was still outsold by the more expensive PS3.
NextGen24Gamer  +   994d ago
When I say software, I mean development software. It will use the same software architecture that pc games use. Which will be easier for developers. Microsoft is a software company and having great development tools goes a long way with games from how they look to how they play! MS will always have an edge in that department because that's what they do at their core!
hot4play  +   994d ago

Let's see what game developers have to say first about this "latency" you keep on insisting on. Specs dont mean S*** if they dont translate into good gaming experiences. And besides, isn't bandwidth more important for graphics anyway? The PS4 also have the advantage of higher memory to use in games (only 1 gb reserved for OS vs. Xbox's 3gb OS footprint)

Now on the topic of development software, i'd think it wouldnt be an issue for the developers because both would be x86 architecture meaning differences (im assuming) would be minimal between the two.

About the games, isn't it obvious that Sony has the most number of game studios right now? Meaning there are more games in the pipeline for the PS4. Also, indie developers are siding with Sony because they are easier to work with ( as opposed to Microsoft who won't allow self-published games on the Xbox dONE. (lol couldn't resist). ;)
NextGen24Gamer  +   994d ago

Personally I could care less about indy games. I don't play them.

We will see what developers say. I'm looking forward to that.

In regards to Sony having more developments studio's...They always have had more but yet the xbox has always sold more software/games!

I believe the ps3 sales were inlfated due to the fact that they had a bluray player. This next generation the xbox One will have inflated hardware sales do to the fact that it does a lot more. There are people who can buy the xbox One and never buy a game from a store. They could literally use it for Music, Tv, and Movies!

In the end it comes down to games for gamers, but for businesses it comes down to sales. Ps3 sold a heck of alot of consoles because of bluray inclussion. That advantage is now gone.

Parents & noobs will look at both this holiday season and the numbers will look the same. But the xbox one will do a heck of a lot more and will seem like the bargain.

All the hardcore gamers I know will buy both consoles! Sony can have all the studios they want...Games sell more on the xbox brand PERIOD!

Call of Duty
Gears of War
Mass Effect
All sports games from EA or TakeTwo

And the list goes on!

Sony's biggest blockbuster titles don't sell nearly as much as Xbox's blockbuster titles. But yet they are about equal in console sales...Figure that one out! :-)
hot4play  +   994d ago

It's "couldn't care less" not "could care less". That's just you, most casual gamers today play indy games and I know hardcore PC gamers who play more indy games now than AAA releases.

"We will see what developers say. I'm looking forward to that. " --- The developers got exactly the kind of architecture they wanted; with the PS4 still at an advantage with its 7 gb GDDR5 ram they can use FREELY FOR GAMES.

"I believe the ps3 sales were inlfated due to the fact that they had a bluray player. This next generation the xbox One will have inflated hardware sales do to the fact that it does a lot more. There are people who can buy the xbox One and never buy a game from a store. They could literally use it for Music, Tv, and Movies! "

And 360 sales were inflated due to its high hardware failure rate. And i CAN already use my PS3, this gen, to play music, movies, and watch tv. Your point?

"In the end it comes down to games for gamers, but for businesses it comes down to sales. Ps3 sold a heck of alot of consoles because of bluray inclussion. That advantage is now gone. "

So now you're for businesses' agendas rather than gaming? Are you working for EA or something? Microsoft will have to pay royalties for Bluray use now so...Sony gets payed for every Xbox one unit that gets sold. :)

"Parents & noobs will look at both this holiday season and the numbers will look the same. But the xbox one will do a heck of a lot more and will seem like the bargain. "

So basically because of Microsoft's huge marketing budget, misinformed people will buy an Xbox 1 because it "will SEEM like the bargain"? Poor people...

"Sony's biggest blockbuster titles don't sell nearly as much as Xbox's blockbuster titles. But yet they are about equal in console sales...Figure that one out! :-)"

Heavy Rain (PS3) - 2.46 M
Alan Wake (X360) - 1.21 M
Gran Turismo 5 (PS3) - 10.39 M
Forza 4 (X360) - 3.96 M

The eSRAM has nothing to do with the system bandwidth, it is only there to help with final cache and AA stuff. MS have been spinning like crazy to make it look like the eSRAM is a selling point but it is only really there to negate the slow system ram. As for latency, the per cycle latency gap is real, but its per second latency that matters, and there is virtually no difference between the two (GDDR 5 runs much faster so has more cycles per second). It is all Microsoft spin. The final bit of BS is the"infinite power of the cloud" will add processing power. If you think latency is an issue in GDDR5, how can you expect a server to send and receive information faster than a single frame is rendered? It simply can't be done (its the equivalent of Krazy Ken saying your toaster could help power your PS3).

lol, thanks for the all the support guys. Just want to clarify that I used to be a PS3 owner, bought an original PS3 at launch and have played most of the games released before 2010 (had to sell all my gaming merchandise to pay off my bills). I've played Uncharted 1 & 2, Infamous 1 (never got to 2), Gran Turismo 5, God of War 3, Resistance and Ratchet&Clank.

But once I get it I'll be playing some free new games :D (Also going to swap out the 500GB HDD and put in a 500GB Solid-State Hybrid Drive, just because I can :D)
madjedi  +   994d ago
You might consider getting seagates 1tb hybrid drive, if you haven't already bought the drive, downloading will be pushed hard by everyone this gen.

And we might be doing full installs of games to eliminating load times, not sure if 500 gigs more is worth another $40 to you though.

The only positive i took away from the xbox one's virtually instantaneous app switching, that was it.

And that design is ugly as hell to me, when the word tv is said 30+ or more times in a console presentation, that doesn't excite me as a gamer in any way.

Did cod look like shit for a next gen title to anyone else or was just a low res video?
HyperBear  +   994d ago
Well I'm talking about the PS3 in I'll be replacing the hard drive it comes with, with the Seagate 500GB SSHD. I know downloading will be a huge integral part of the Next-gen consoles, but whether you can swap out the HDD in the PS4 (Because you can't on the Xbox One) will be the question.

Plus the COD:Ghosts video was an in-game cinematic trailer. It's all running on the new engine, just not being played live for true gameplay broadcasting. They will probably demo an actual mission at the Microsoft E3 conference.

Dead has core gamers we are used to tech and switching things back and forth. There millions of people that can barely run a dvd player. Things like the this are great for them. I don't even have cable tv, but I still see that this could be great for some. Others not so much...

Sorry DEADEND I'm a Core Gamer and I like the extra features. After gaming for a couple hours I turn on apps like Netflix all the time.

I've seen so little talk about the TVii feature that I forgot it existed. I'm not even sure if it will fully operate my cable box(use a U-Verse whole home DVR).

It just seems that this type of implementation would have to be supported by the cable box itself. I know HDMI makes it possible(as it's similar to HomeLink or similar things), but to what extent?

It's an interesting proposal and I like the thought of it, but just not that big a deal for me since I watch only DVR, and even then only a few shows.

Does anyone know if switching channels through a separate device is commonly used on cable boxes(as in there's a standard)?

I keep telling people this, but they don't listen. I have a Wii U. There are some fun games (very few, but they will come out) on the system. The TVii feature is the same as using my DVR though, so why turn on the Wii U when I want to watch TV?

Nobody uses TVii. There are apps for phones and tablets that work better than and are faster than TVii. The same will be true of Xbox One. Your Kinect can't turn your TV on. Many phones and tablets can.

Actually Wii U's looking pretty damn good after yesterday.
Brazz  +   994d ago
To tell the truth the next day and E3 will be a defining factor for nintendo, know why? the simple factor that defines the success of the Wii, I mean, the initial failure of competitors Ps3 / 360.
The wii has some merits, motion control was quite interesting at the time but the main factor in his success was not Your Own capacity, but the resounding failure of the PS360 were at the beginning, either for a ridiculously high price or RLOD ...
It is the best nintendo pray that MS and Sony make mistakes as very high price / few games at launch / "fragile machines" with "yellow or red lights of death." otherwise I do not see a good future for the Wii U! so far it only proved to be able to compete on "equal terms" with PS360

When your main goal is to restrict and put gamers on the back burner, this is going to happen. I love my 360 and I'm keeping it but I'm not touching the One.

So Major nelson talks about "Announce a console without actually showing a console"
Well we certainly saw how that approach worked for Sony and how MS's approach is working for them post reveal.

My response to Major Nelson is "Announce and how a game console thats actually not about games? Thats one way to do it."

LOL. Thats pretty telling. the Social media buzz and purchase intent is definately sitting with Sony and the PS4... Kaz must be laughing and all they did was show a controller and the games. Now that MS showed its console and its TV and multiplatform games, All eyes are boiling down on Sony who has the LAST major showing at E3.

They had the first word and now they will have the last word before going into the holiday season! Expertly played and well executed!

maniacmayhem  +   994d ago
MS is unable to shake off bad press and rightly so with Phil Harrison being a complete politician when asked about the used games.

Having games tied to your account for a gaming console is a horrible idea and if this is truly the case then MS should have just went with the all digital route and competed with Steam in terms of gaming.

At least then there could have been a more acceptable reason to do this.

All I have to say is MS better have some truly shocking and must have titles at e3 and they better get their policies (or lies) straight because to many chiefs in the MS branch are saying different things about online and used games.
Sharius  +   994d ago
you forgot to mention that: even the digital game, sony allow you share to atleast 2 more account FOR FREE

Jek_Porkins  +   994d ago
Didn't these same people speak and say Kinect would be the next Sega 32x? Not sure what happened there, but I remember a lot of people being upset and claiming one thing or another.

The thing is, I wouldn't count out the next Xbox.

This thing is a disaster, its so anti consumer that only the most hardcore of MS fanboys will buy this thing (i'm looking at you Jek_Porkins). I'm glad that the press has finally opened their eyes to the truth and not beleiving MS's corporate propaganda.

Is this really a surprise? As it is, Playstation 4 looks like a much better product for gamers. The games and the developers alike are the focus of attention on PS4.
It ought to pay off.

pimpschitz  +   994d ago
Kind of my thoughts gamer-z. In two weeks I hardly think it matters what the hell MS is doing, they made their point fair and clear. "Buy the used games from our market." Gamestop is going to be pissed, gamefly is going to be pissed, amidst any other 2nd game retailer. On the other hand, digital download wouldn't have been a bad thing, but I buy games primarily to trade with my friends, this means that if I bought a game I'm buying it exclusively for me from now on. PS4 it is then. Either way I'm not paying for Xbox live. Time to kill online with the PSN from now on.
brave27heart  +   994d ago
Might not be a scientific measurement but as a rough idea of the mood of gamers its quite damming for Microsoft.

Im sure there are a lot of people for whom the Xbox One appeals, Im just not one of them.
thehusbo  +   994d ago
Hardly surprising. Who cares about a glorified cable box? Can't wait till June 10th where we can actually see a next gen console with some real games.

MS would be foolish to spend the bulk of E3 talking about Kinect 2.0 and T.V. (like they probably will).

Bring the games or go market One to the TiVo crowd. At the end of the day it's still supposed to be about gaming.
horndog  +   994d ago
The hardcore gamers is a very small percent. This doesnt mean much.

It's depressing. Gamers marginalizing gamers.

It's sad that some people have reached a point of blind console loyalty where they will throw themselves under the bus in defense of a console that's putting them on the back burner.

Very bad news, MS is going the way of the average joe, who enjoys football. Let me tell you what happens when there is only one ruler! He becomes a dictatorship. Sony is awesome, but they are a business and they will have more leverage on us.

Well let's hope I am wrong.
