Why Xbox One Is Better Than PS4 - Hint: The Future of Consoles Isn't Gaming

We've now seen the next generation of major gaming consoles unveiled (well, mostly - we still don't know what the PS4 console will actually look like), and it looks like the Xbox One is ready for the future, while the PS4 sadly clings on to the bygone---and less profitable---era of hardcore gaming. (PS4, Xbox One)

Hint: the highest-selling console of last gen was the one with the fewest non-gaming features.

Agreed.
I wish we could get rid of this thought that gaming console has to be more than just a gaming console. We don't need apps and TV stuff, it should be a an extra and not a focus

I don't understand why people would buy an Xbox with these Tv functions when they could just buy a cable box and use a remote for a lot less of the price.

People keep saying the Xbox is all in one (hence the name)this kind of complete living room experience but so far it seems like they're the jack of all trades and master of none. I can't see hardcore gamers buying them

MS did what they had to...just disnt announce it right. MS's first priority is its OS and the its future. They know the future isn't desktop PCs so they must get out ahead of it. Luckily for them Google and Apple have basically failed at getting ahold of the livingroom market. MS has a huge unstall base with the xb ox and must go the direction they r going.

That being said, they should have used the initial announcement to assauge the fear that theor core base has. They should hav started and ended with games...tech bwing the middle content. And they should hav answered more questions. Once they took care of the base, then they can move forward and begin to market to everyone else. Instead, they left an overall negative feeling with those that saw the reveal and the word spreads. They did it backwards.

I will buy a ps4 initially but will probably buy an xbox one at some point afterwards. Its too early as most reveal will be at e3 for both but I believe that the xbox one will be fine and I believe that there is room for both.

You know it may be true, Microsoft chose the name XBOX from the beginning, they were aiming for this moment and future, the "X" and "BOX": "X" in mathematics means a variable and can be anything and you can put anything in a "BOX". Now the "BOX"is a DVR and a TV Tuner and the "X" is your voice that changes with every user. Sony main focus was/is/will be always about gaming first hence the name "PLAY" + "STATION". What first comes in mind when you hear the world "PLAY" is playing, games of course, but further investigations can lead to find that the word "PLAY" can be accomplice to playing music, movies, videos or any other media. Without forgetting that a "STATION" is very BIG compared to a "BOX": a station can be a radio station, TV station, train station, military station, gas station, magazine station, work station... anything that everybody uses and goes to in his all day life. So a "STATION" is something NECESSARY in one's life because have you ever seen someone going to any "STATION" bringing a huge "BOX" with him? Also, as far as I know, in psychology, the majority of people have tendency to get affection for the word "PLAY" rather than the exhausting "X" in mathematics.

PS: I am either a philosopher or drunk or neither of those or just following the logics of this article's author aka a "gaminge" machine is not for gaming meaning the logic of absurdity in mathematics or the logics of the non-logics.

Correction the box is NOT a DVR and it is NOT a tuner. This means that you have to waste power and space with your existing cable box (you know the tuner and the DVR). The only thing the Xbox does is change the channels from the HDMI in.

In other words it is USELESS as a cable/sat box.

That's why I've started calling it a set top box accessory since it doesn't do much on it's own.

So Microsoft's real competition is companies like Cisco, Motorola etc. that already make set top boxes with much of the same functionality.

The cable companies have no interest in someone like Microsoft, Google or Apple co-opting their networks so expect the STBs to continue to add features over the coming years.

3 Microsoft ruining the good thing it had with windows 7 so that they could release the trash windows 8 and later windows blue

4 Msoft just ditching the gaming community by giving up entirely on what their supporters want and concentrating on fat redneck sports fans who are gullible enough to let a fuckin hal9000 in their living rooms to watch/record everything they fukin do.

Sony didn't show off their box when they announced their new machine. Major Nelson I believe said sarcastically 'that's one way to launch your new games console' referring to the lack of the box on display.

What was Microsoft way to show off their new games console? Show hardly any games? Dohhhhh!

I know I know. It isn't e3. But showing off a games console with hardly any games.....That is surely far more stupid way to launch a games console.

They showed off enough everything else. Utter madness.

Seriously. The people defending MS over this used game business is over the top. If you can buy a disc and put it in you machine and have it play ONLY AFTER PAYING THE RETAIL PRICE OF THE GAME then that IS NOT allowing used game sales.

And being able to sell them only on the MS network and make any money isn't true used game sales. You are now at the mercy of what one company thinks that game is worth.

I guess by that thinking a car with no motor is a valid form of transportation and being able to trade in said car ONLY to the original dealership for any profit at all is true a resale.

TKCMuzzer  +   330d ago
Interesting but not really that true, people may not talk as much on them but they do have conversations in many different ways and this includes facebook and twitter. It's still communicating with other people, which is essentially what phones are about.
If you like games, why would you buy a console that you thought would end up not being about games, surely that's what consoles are about.
Rainstorm81  +   330d ago
That's the thing, they didnt lessen phone capabilities with smartphones...they gave you a new option that never existed.

XB1 isn't doing that, it's a glorified voice activated universal remote, smartphones essentially gave us computers in our hands.

What is XB1 bringing to the table that a DVR or Cable box doesn't ....Skype?...Samsung Tvs come with cameras Skype and motion controls.

I'm sorry but early adopters of game consoles are GAMERS and gamers' console priorities are gaming and games. The road MS is going down they don't seem to care about either

Are you serious? If so pass along some of the sh1t you are smoking cause it MUST be good.

The XBone doesn't even function as a DVR or a TV tuner. In other words all it functions as is a pass through channel changer with an online program guide (break out the kazoos). So in other words they FAILED at producing a Tuner/DVR AND a games console.

Wow I know I want to rush right out to buy yet another box that connects to the existing box that I already use/rent from my provider. WTF is the point of that??

@Rainstorm81

"That's the thing, they didnt lessen phone capabilities with smartphones...they gave you a new option that never existed. "

Okay, fair enough. But tell me how XBOX ONE is lessening gaming capabilities to compromise for its other endeavors. And no, don't mention used game licensing or RAM differences VS a PS4.

The fact is, we haven't seen games yet. Or at least, no longform gameplay. MICROSOFT TOLD US THAT WE WOULDN'T BE SEEING MOST OF THE GANES UNTIL E3. That last sentence is in all caps because everybody is forgetting that simple fact, whether willfully or otherwise.

So how can you say that the gaming aspect is being lessened if we haven't even been shown that aspect AND were told that we wouldn't see it for two weeks? Or is it just a "feeling" you get?
inmusicutrust  +   330d ago
Rainstorm I agree. Tvs are pushing smart tv functions too much, I feel that xb1 cannot compete with that in the long run, each year the market will be more saturated with tvs that feature these services built in. Obviously there will still be those who want the extra perks but most will be satisfied with what they have. Look at tivo now that most cable boxes have built in dvr. Still around and selling but not like when it was a revolutionary product.

nukeitall  +   330d ago
I find it hilarious that the vast majority here doesn't get it (or willfully ignore it), but why do people use Netflix on the PS3 or Xbox 360, when they can do so on PC?

You need to separate the can and will!

Furthermore, the Xbox One does solve a major problem with current cable boxes and that is finding what I want with it.

It's painfully slow to find what I want on their slow @ss cable box with the pretty confusingly labeled remote.

Just like when Xbox Live launched, you could play online on PC with voice hat, but Xbox Live brought it together and we know what happened.

This is a similar attempt at transforming your living room experience and there is some serious technology behind this to make it happen.

I think the era of high performance gaming consoles only is bygone and the Wii U is an example of this.

An iPhone isn't a dedicated gaming device, yet there probably more people gaming on it than the PS Vita.

Heck, I'm finding children of parents I know aren't asking for a Nintendo 3DS or a PS Vita, they are asking for an iPad!

I think the long term, Sony will try to follow as best they can the path MS is laying granting their hardware can keep up.
pkb79  +   329d ago
@nukeitall
if you find a cable box remote confusing then the Xbox one is certainly for you.
This central entertainment hub approach is an antiquated notion., families don't sit and watch TV together, they may watch a movie together once in a while but pretty much everyone had access to their own screen to watch what they want. Even my 3 year old can work netlixs on the wii.

People watch tv with smart phones in hand and tablets on laps for all their social media needs.

Xbox one bring nothing new to the table, it just bottle necks it in one box for the family to fight over.

one more point, some of us where playing socom online with the ps2 long before xbox live showed up, it was free and it was awesome.

The future of consoles is more than just about gaming, yes. But it is the gaming aspect that will get it in front of people's television sets. The better the gaming is=the greater demand for the console.

Otherwise there is no reason to purchase this thing when your cable company already has a DVR box in your living room and you already own a blu-ray player. Why would you spend that kind of money on a console when you have everything you need already? That is right! Because of the games!

Blu-Ray interested me because of storage capacity for games. Those other things were not a factor in my PS3 purchase.

Well...by his reasoning, you could just use any current smart device to achieve the same thing...so the X1 becomes redundant. On top of that a lot of people already have them, so X1 is now competing not just against Sony/Nintendo in games, but Apple/Google/Sony in TV, Apple/Samsung/HTC/Sony/Etc in smart devices, many various TV providers who already have smart functions built in and working on their TV's(some of which also offer gaming), AND every cable company who tacks these things on as added services to make a few extra bucks.

It seems MS wants to take on the entire world of electronics manufacturers and service providers all at once....I'm not sure if I should have respect for their fortitude or disdain for their idiocy.

Well if that is the case Sony can just build Gaikai integration into their 3D Smart TV's and have everything stream directly through their TV's and have no need for a separate console to play games.

So you may be right where the future of consoles isn't gaming but luckily Sony can just integrate directly into the TV. Can MS do that? If your TV already offered you all the games & social apps would you really need a Xbox 1 & all it's extra hidden fees for everything? I'm surprised the Xbox1 isn't coming with a credit card swiper that you would need to use before your allowed to turn your Xbox1 on.

That will be $10.00 to access your Xbox1 please insert your credit card now.

"getting into making original content"? so because of ONE (probably pretty crappy) live action moive that theyre producing, you think this is going to lead to thousands of hours of high quality original content?! listen, not every retarded piece of original content is going to be directed by Stephen Spielberg. if in fact all this "original content" youre so excited about does happen, its probably going to be B-movie material at best.

Here's the thing, both consoles will have the same features. Movies/Music/TV/Games. Both will offer all these services and both will be entertainment centers.

This uninformed, stupid idea that the PS4 is some machine only for hardcore gamers is idiotic. Like all game consoles, it is the core that will spend hundreds at dollars at launch so it is the core which the thing should be marketed too.

Does anyone really think some soccer mom or sports dad is going to buy a $500 Xbox One just because it can do stuff your cable box can? There goes my next point, YOU STILL NEED YOUR CABLE BOX AND DVR! So much for "All-In-One".
