With the next-generation of consoles releasing soon the internet is flaring with comments criticizing and praising both Microsoft and Sony for their new devices. Who do you think will win the next console war?
PlayStation 4 WINS FLAWLESS VICTORY HUMILITY
Playstation 4 and Wii U for the Win :)
Wii u for the win ? Sweetie I think you got it wrong 1. PS4 2. Xbox 1 3. Wii u Sony is undefeated ! Dominated last gen too (ps3) , not talking sales, talking games
I do not consider wii u a next gen machine, I laugh when I compare wii u specs to ps4 lol
For someone who claims it's about the games, you sure do seem to be concerned about the specs.
Live in your world , Play in ours ! - PS2
Well if Xbox doesn't impress after E3, their only way to win is if they changed the spelling to their console to Xbox "won" instead of "one". Lol.
@Hydrolex Current gen 1.Wii 2.Ps3 3 X Box 360 Next gen PS4 vs Wii U for sure to battle for the 1st spot. XBOX one looks kinda screwed up. You ain't got no respect for Nintendo's Accomplishment? Edit: A gaming Console is not all about specs. It all about coming from the root word "Games". Wii U is definitely a next gen machine for Nintendo. Nintendo has the Games at it's hand for it to be able to compete these generation.
Absolutely not ! The hardware in wii u is outdated
Current gen will end up at PS3 at the top spot. Then Wii and then x360. This should be common knowledge by now.
4>1 Come on, we've been through this
@Hydrolex We are not talking about the specs Generally if we are talking about the console wars.. You're hard to please. Oh well.
too early to call as of right now
games aside, the PS4 is the clear winner, really... and based on what sony's currently putting out, and what they've put out in the past, their exclusive titles are going to be phenomenal. it has more powerful specs, no restrictive policies, the ability to be played entirely offline, an optional camera peripheral that doesn't require you to have connected just to be able to use the system...
Too early ? Are you waiting for Micorosft to change the hardware ? Lol it all comes down to hardware and ps4 is a stronger machine = better games, better performance, I'd say more exclusives too
Someone still believes Xbox One will make it in the end :P
The dual shock 4 is a much better looking controller to me.. Has more features too.. The console is strictly for gaming with a splash of media which is exactly what i want.. Best possible graphics for a console, many great exclusive AAA & indie games, free online multiplayer, & its going to have some bad ass vita functionality.. No way in hell i would miss out on getting this.. Ill buy xbox one later on after it gets a lot of exclusive games that dont have guns in em & if its cheap enough.. My main console wont be reliant on the internet & have to waste storage fully installing every damn game i get.. Thats what makes me not even want the thing.. It NEEDS kinect too so if i wanted to take it to my girls house (who doesnt have internet) it wouldnt even work & i would have to lug around that camera just to get it running.. Thats BS but whatever.. M$ brought this upon themselves by trying to control everything & milk every cent they can.. Not doing it unless i want exclusive games from a 3rd console later down the line
what i dont understand about gamers from either side is why theyre ASSUMING the ps4 will be light on the media side of things just because the xbone was so heavy on it during its presentation? when the 360 came out with things like netflix and hulu, ps3 was close to follow. theyve got an entire movie rental/download library consisting of thousands upon thousands of titles on the ps3 ALONE! its great to see that the xbone is snatching up exclusive rights like NFL media and stuff, but how do ANY of you know the ps4 is all about games? im pretty darn sure it will have loads upon LOADS of media hub features that they havent really bothered to discuss at the moment. its a really foolish idea to divide the two machines, saying that one is a "media hub and the others a game console". im sure the ps4 has an abundance of media features they thought wouldnt be important enough to display during a console unavailing. same goes for xbone and its games library.
The problem here isn't what a console can do or what services it will have but whether the company is focusing too much on things that people just don't seem to be very interested in! For example, when we see MS spending so much money and time on TV shows, TV apps, TV games etc and tries to shove Kinect down everyones throat by making it mandatory and involved EVRYWHERE... well, it just goes to show that as a product it has serious identity crisis!
I'm sure the PS4 has some media capabilities Like Hulu, Netflix, Blu-Ray and big on the Social part to like Facebook and youtube(But primarily focused around gaming, Sony themselves said this). The PS4 comes off as a Gaming console with Social and Media capabilities whereas XBO Came off as a TV Media hub first, gaming Console Second. Noway can the XBO compete with Sony in games while at the same time being Less powerful and so many TV Cable Kinect options. It's Absurd to think XBO can compete with sony in games.
is it me or am I the only one that thinks getting ea deals like ms has was the dumbest move ever to try n sell ya console. the worst company in america for 2 years running.
Wii U, flawless victory
I can agree with Nintendo being number 1, but a flawless victory common. HaHaHa
damn. ziratul shuttin' us all down.
No it got competition from PS4 and Sega Nomad
The Wii U can barely walk....Where is it on Amazon's Bestseller? It's not even in the top 100. It's doing far worse than the Wii did. I think It'll be 1.PS4 2.XBO 3.Wii U Yes I think XBO Will do better than Wii U. There are many people who will buy the XBO Primarily for it's TV/Cable capabilities.
Just wait. Nintendo against all odds always win.
This article screams Xbox fanboy. "Microsoft’s Xbox 360 controller is the best gamepad available today and improving on that model isn’t easy." This is stated as fact? I'm not sure everyone would agree.
And no one had a very long gaming session with either the PS4 or the XBOX1 controller which is why i dont see how the press comes to these conclusions. However both controllers appear to contain improvements over their predecessor especially the DS4 controller which has changed a lot.
Article Ttitle = TROLOLOLOL. Going to reel everyone in like a big fish. At the moment it's clear that Sony has taken the upper-hand, all signs are positive with E3 approaching. Looking at this from a purely objective point of view though, Microsoft still have plenty of opportunities to turn a few heads if they deliver their games promises and their new IPs look decent.
It's funny watching people argue over what console is better, all that matters is games.
A then, gamers will argue which console exklusives has better graphics.:)
When all there WAS to a console was the games, that was all that mattered. And, to be sure, they're still the most important aspect of a console. But extra features and functions DO matter. And because the three consoles all have different extra features- along with different game libraries, to a certain extent- it's natural that people would try to decide which was best. Best for the money, best for gamers, best for certain genres of games. None of these is a bad thing to discern or debate, though much can be subjective. Honestly, isn't it more odd to NOT want to know which is better when you're spending a few hundred up front, and hundreds more over the next few years? And if you've already made the investment, or have invested in a particular company in the past, and found it to be worthwhile, would you NOT want others to know? Why do I never hear this argument about car brands, or music, or sports teams, or anything else? Why is it only in gaming where you can't prefer one side over another?
Xbox One and its 15 exclusives. Say it with me 15 exclusives, HaHaHa! All jokes aside, Xbox One will win in the long run. Sony will have exclusives at launch as Nintendo and Microsoft will. After a year are so and Microsoft and Nintendo keep announcing more and more exclusives, that's when the public will notice and their consoles will start to distant themselves from Sony's console. While some think that Sony will hit the ground running and outsell all other consoles and have the best exclusives is your opinion. This is my opinion and its just as good as yours.
Funny is that The PS3 in the end Has Way More Jaw Dropping Exclusives than the 360 has to offer. The Last of Us is an example. ; - ) Eat it. Yeah baby! And Who is the Home Console that is topping in these days lately? Sony Ps3 baby ;).
last of us looks and sort of plays (from the vids i seen) like uncharted..so not that exclusive.. was not a fan of heavy rain gameplay mechanics so beyond 2souls isnt even on my radar.(until they prove otherwise).. not saying they wack..just not my cup of tea.. nintendo IMO has better exclusives.. because there so exclusive people swear that they dont have games other than mario & co..lol(not joking love me some ninty games
TLoU is a PS3 game and I no you fanboys love to hype it, but to be honest that game doesn't look that good to me.
@BeZdaBest You ain't getting my point. The person I have replied to assumes Microsoft's XBox One will be the last one standing in the end. Looking at these current gen History, PS3 is the One who is the last man standing with better exclusives and better gaming experience. Wii is Gone now admit it even though It is still the Top selling console, PS3 with these state can catch up with it. Looking At the Future gen, PS4 would likely be the Last man standing Once again. With PS, Vita, These would Definitely make the PS4 the best choice for gaming Experience. ;)
Pigpen You are just one person. The reason sony releases a larger wider variety of games is because some may not like tlou, but like beyond 2 souls. May not like the puppeteer but will like gt6......some people just dont get it. 3 of those games are new ips...... We just get more choice than you pigpen. Downplay all you want but you're fighting human natures lust for variety by downplaying it. Who doesn't prefer more choice.. MS has ended 2 gens in ways that don't fill me with confidence. They start each gen pumping titles but end over reliant on 3rd parties
BeZdaBest last of us is "not that exclusive"? There are different levels of how exclusive a game is? Not sure you understand what exclusive means. Plus last of us looks a good bit different than uncharted, a much different experience, given the darker tone and all the survival elements.
But what makes you think Sony wouldn't "keep announcing more and more exclusives" aswell? If history is any sort of indication to the present, I have no doubt Sony will continue keeping it's strong exclusive presence up. It's what they did this gen, and I can imagine it's what they'll do the next. And I don't believe the general public is as susceptible to exclusives as they are gimmicky features. I do think Xbox One will sell well, purely due to the marketing that it will get with Kinect 2.0 integration, TV integration, etc. My opinion is that Sony will consistently deliver a better gaming experience than Microsoft, but only time will tell.
only that your opinion has absolutely no logical basis whatsoever. youre just talking a bunch of nonsense and using the cloak that "there is no such thing as a wrong opinion" to mask how foolish that opinion actually is. first off, the ps3 goes against everything you say about sony hitting the ground running and implying that it would fizzle out later on. its launch was disastrous with absolutely no games and yet, to this day, people are either playing RECENTLY released exclusives or awaiting ones to come. as a matter of fact, sony has never been light on its exclusive support toward the end of the gen. not with the ps3 (as you can see for yourself), not with the ps2 and not with the ps1. so, in short, you have absolutely NO logical reasoning to think that an exclusive shortage toward the end of next gen miraculously happen to the ps4, as it has never happened once in playstations history. youre also wrong on the opposite end of that argument. MS has released a grand total of 2 consoles. the original xbox was discontinued after a pathetic 4 year life cycle. im not sure if youre also ready to accept the fact that the 360 has had a pretty dry run with its exclusives for a solid 2 years now, with the only notable releases being gears and halo 4. though the original xbox was an incredible machine, you cant deny that it wasnt supported toward the end of the cycle. again, based on microsofts history with THEIR consoles, what makes you think that theyre going to have a healthy flow of exclusives throughout the years? THEY HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE. again, not denying that the 360 was a nice step in the right direction..but almost 2 years now of nothing but halo, gears and kinect, only further proves that they do not support their consoles with proper software all the way through. I dont mean to come off as standoffish or loaded with this type of response. its just that your logic has little to no justification. its puzzling to see how someone could draw any of these conclusions. good day to you my man.
Not many realize this, but this will be the first time XBOX and the PS both launch around the same time. The PS3 Caught up and passed the 360 even with all It's faults. High price, poor marketing, bad press, Year after the 360, and Hard to develop for. My opinion, no way can the XBO go head to head with the PS4 and win thats why MS is trying to take a different path. It makes sense to. Wii U came out early so It won't be directly competing with PS4 and XBO.
ps4 clear winner..nah not by a longshot... if nintendo can pull a 3ds on the wiiu.. which its looking that way.. mariokart coming soon flanked by zelda and 3d mario..plus more games on the way... we now the wiiu can sell without a price drop because it sold almost 3 million in 1 1/2 months. also the amazon uk thing..so its all about the games which are coming..
PS4 is the clear winner. PS4 will be the most powerful console and the best looking. The Dualshock 4 is the best and most feature rich controller. Sony's Cloud "Gaikai" has the best features ever. Also they say it will be "The fastest and most powerful gaming network in the world." PS+ is by far the best service with all the free games and deals they offer. PS4 is also free to play online and pay if you want more PS+ for ex. Which is worth every penny.
I've been with Playstation since 1995 & I will definitely be spending my hard earned cash on the PS4!That's my console of choice.
Leaving my decision until after e3 reveal, either way I will get both eventually, but whichever console as the best launch tiles will get my money day one.
Seriously again ? Like my answer gonna change PS4 all the way , but there is one thing I wish Sony owned that Microsoft owns and that is the company Rare , I've always thought Rare developed so pretty good games oh well !
the reel compared in this video http://www.youtube.com/watc...
people make too much of a big deal about exclusives as if Microsoft doesn't have any. Microsoft has some the best exclusives and the best sailing might I add. it took a multiplatform game to dethroan halo as the biggest asking game. no play station gfame could ever say that. I repeat ever. and the sad thing about exclusives, we don't buy them all so what's the point of even making a cse for them? if Sony released 10 exclusive title a year,the gamers would only buy and truthfully like 2 or 3 of them. if Microsoft released 7 exclusive titles, 4 to 5 of them would sale and would actually be loved and supported in a very big way. so quality is still king. not quantity. but being that exclusivity is going the way of the dinosaur at an alarming rate, its safe to say that exclusives are fun to say for argument sake, but they don't really sale as good as 3rd party titles (call of duty and battlefield nproves that regularly).
