It's Too Early To Judge Microsoft Xbox One And Sony PlayStation 4

Forbes - These days, negative press is what seems to drive the game “journalism” business. And I use that term lightly, as there seems to be a lot of writing without any real reporting — whether that’s “borrowing” quotes from work others have done and regurgitated them for headline grabs or finding multiple negative angles around a story in an attempt to garner hits from fan boys (a term called nerd baiting).

The Internet and social media have literally made everyone a critic and given everyone a voice, both for good and for bad. Unfortunately, the days of editors and ethics in journalism seems like it’s mostly a thing of the past – much like print.

At the end of the day, it's the gamers that will win when it comes to next gen consoles.

Yeh, but one of the console is not intended for gamers

Arai1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

When you look at things from a gaming perspective it's rather easy to judge them both.

While they both have a handful of studios, one has more games output than the other:

It's a gaming machine, all that matters is the games. Everything else is an added bonus but not a necessity.

Gildarts1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

They are going to invest a billion dollars in games. What do you mean the Xbox One is not "intended" for gamers?

@Arai

Microsoft has a lot more secret projects and studios then that.

23 game studios, while Sony has 15.

OT, Very well said. We can make our conclusions after E3. And yes we've been saying "Wait for E3" for years. but this is the first time that Microsoft themselves are coming out and saying it. Even going as far as saying "we will kill Sony at E3". And their game studios grew to 23 in total, that is more then enough evidence.

UNGR1154d ago

Really? It has games on it. It has features, and a few negative implementations. Microsoft hasn't even been very clear on them, they change their mind every two seconds. But give them until E3 at least, this behavior is childish. If we're judging it that harshly from a reveal, how on Earth did the PS3 survive it's launch? Because it turned itself around, and succeeded. We don't know near enough to make the slightest bit of an opinion on this console. I wouldn't be surprised if they played "the good guy card" at E3 and ditched DRM, and used game fees entirely.

@Gildarts

How much would be wasted on advertising? Remember how much money was wasted on the piece of crap Kinect?

video game consoles of today evolve be it for better or worse

dedicatedtogamers1154d ago

Why is it too early?

I've had since 2005 to see how Microsoft and Sony handled their last consoles. Are people really so naive to think that if we just "wait 'til E3" or "wait 'til launch" or "wait 'til 18 months after launch" that the system will magically contradict the philosophies we've been seeing Sony and Microsoft follow for years?

FlunkinMonkey1154d ago

Well said.. some people are in complete denial. Past E3's have shown MS to almost entirely forget about their consumers with concerns to games.

Look how Sony are treating their PS3 consumer fan-base compared to MS and 360, even in the leading up to next-gen, its absolutely shocking,

"wait for E3, wait for E3", all you guys seem to want to do is wait, how long have you been waiting? If you're revealing a games console, why aren't you revealing games?

Each to their i own i guess, this is just my opinion after all.. you can play what you want.. I used to own a 360, but sold it for these reasons..

ZodTheRipper1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

In the end, gamers probably will come back to Playstation anyway. But one must be very short-sighted and naive to make that mistake in the first place. The 360 had the advantage that it was cheaper and earlier available. But those factors can't the save the One this time.

fermcr1154d ago

At this moment... both the PS4 and X1 suck due their restrictions: no backwards compatibility (disk games and XBLA/PSN games), DRM online for both consoles, allways online (for X1).

Seriously... Next gen isn't looking that great to me.

shuuwai1154d ago

welcome to the world of EA, enjoy your stay.
Overall, I'll get the ps4 first, and I will also get the X1, basic on 3 things, not always online, game block isn't in the console, cam CAN be turn OFF without unplugging the console.(F ms kinect!)

I agree, though I raged like a mofo at the reveal if I'm honest

elhebbo161154d ago

I hope everything gets cleared up at E3, for the sake of gaming.

True_Samurai1154d ago

They're both are gonna be freaking awesome!
