Geeeeeeeeez, why does it feel like E3 is so far away?..... I am ready for the fireworks; just let me preorder already.

CalibriSerif1540d ago

there is only one thing i gotta say!
spybox die!

coming from a very pissed 360 fan.

Hydrolex1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

I knew sony had already won after I got done watching microsofts conference ... some are still waiting for e3. The first conference is the most important one to hype ppl, and micorosft had nothing on the table. Now imagine what sony is going to do at e3

MEGANE1540d ago

Lmao....spybox die!!... omg u made my day!

BattleAxe1540d ago

TheSurg1540d ago

sengoku1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

WOW what a result.
i knew the ps4 would be taking the Crown
but in all categories and which such huge margins is just crazy.

PS4 FTW

more then 300k votes is nothing to sneeze at

@Hydrolex

It's like they say: you don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

Back on topic...

I'll still keep lookinng forward to E3, not only cause I hope MS fix the issues, but also to hear more on where Sony is taking PS4, so personally I'm not deciding 'till I've see it all (features, power, policies and PRICE).

But, right now, I can easily understand why most of us here are disregarding Xbox One entirely, and I don't blame gamers... Xbox go home, you're drunk.

gaffyh1540d ago

What's weird is that almost all of the votes, apart from the controller, are 4:1, to PS4: Xbox One

AngryTypingGuy1540d ago

JokesOnYou..."Well I never heard of IGN...must be some random fanboy blogg just making sh** up." As I type this he has 1 Agree and 22 Disagrees, which begs the question...do you people not know what sarcasm is?

S2Killinit1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

@angrytypingguy
believe it or not he is not being sarcastic (: I know his comments, he is a xbox fan boy. He is actually claiming that he doesn't know IGN (traditionally pro xbox website mind you)

AngelicIceDiamond1540d ago

Oh really now, PlayStation wins every category *surprise.

Now that we're done playin games let the road to E3 begin.

ShwankyShpanky1540d ago

@TheSurg

"another paranoid American blah blah Facebook"

Is this some new stereotype other countries have about the US now? That we all use Facebook?

Let me be the one to break it to you, not everyone in the US uses Facebook.

Ausbo1540d ago

Why are you guys so afraid of kinect spying??? Theyve already said uou can turn it off or turn it away from you. As for the drm with the games, that a legitimate concern. Didnt know so many n4g gamers were conspiracy theorists.

mistertwoturbo1540d ago

Flawless victory. Though it doesn't reflect the entire country. Safe to say more gamers are interested in the PS4.

BullyMangler1540d ago

The fanboys have voted.

Ha haa this reminds me of "Game oF the Year" award.

andibandit1540d ago

While not conclusive this video does give an indication how this generation will play out.

Even though they are just votes, 310k+ is still a lot.
Seeing the route both companies took and all things considered, Sony might have just won the generation before it even started.

So far it's been a smooth sailing with praises left/right for the console/Sony, but E3 is 9 days away and it should be one for the history books.

SONY hit this one out of the ball park.

this is why exactly why M$ is going to be (so called) all about games from now on.
they know sony was right to bet on gamers and gamers are now betting on sony.

PS4 FTW

Ju1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

Agreed. Even though it's "just" an online poll, the numbers are huge. I am not saying MS won't be successful, but in the gaming market, they have lost the first round.

Maybe they are right with where they are heading, but early adopters for an "expensive" piece of HW (console) are the core gamers, not the typical TV watching crowd. I just can't see that happening. MS might be in for an eye opener comes the Holiday season.

I just can't see how you can target a wide audience with an expensive set-top box. That's just a totally different market. And sure not the one where people will shell out 4 or $500 to get another cable box - no matter if it plays games or not.

And for everybody else who want's games first it's really hard to ignore the PS4 and go with that One instead.

I am going the "pessimistic" route but still predict Sony wins the launch easily 2:1 (which would be huge!) - and I'd laugh it is in fact 4:1. LOL

Gildarts1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

You can see that most of the people who voted are Sony fanboys, When Sony wins in the controller area xD.

Everybody knows that Xbox One controller is the best. Even PS4 fans(not fanboy, there is a difference)admit it.

I agree with most of the categories they won. But they can't possibly win the controller category without influence from fanboys.

FlameBaitGod1540d ago

Don't be mad bro, not ur fault the controller sucks.

Blackdeath_6631540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

well i guess the better controller is subjective personally i hate where the left analog stick is though i do agree its very comfortable. i think the reason ps4 controller gets the vote is because they added something new, they are trying to innovate with the clickable touch pad. i also think the enhanced rumble in the XBone controller's trigger is a good idea but people will only know that once they get to use it whereas the touch pad is an obvious change from the dualshock3 an can be clearly see on every picture of the new controller. anyhow i will have both xbox one controller for my pc and dualshock 4 for the ps4

OrangePowerz1540d ago

The Xbox controller is better in some areas, but I prefer the symmetrical setup of the dualshock controllers.

Besides we have only seen pictures of the controllers and didn't use them yet, so who knows.

Enemy1540d ago

What's there to admit, other than the obvious, which was stated in this video, that already we're seeing the masses prefer DualShock 4 over the Xbox One controller?

Everything about the PS4 has shaped up to be vastly superior to whatever the competition is offering. According to you, everyone on N4G is a Sony fanboy. Now you're saying the same about IGN. GameSpot had similar results where everyone was more interested in the PS4. Is everyone a Sony fanboy now because no one gives a flying rat's ass about Xbox One?

MEGANE1540d ago

I don't get this analog stick deal!!! i use my two thumbs for shooters and they are at the same height. why does it needs to be up.... I don't get it!

Gildarts1540d ago

Of course there are SOME people who prefer dualshock. But the majority always preferred Xbox controller. And this ONE is the most perfect yet.

And yes I do know that a lot of people are hating on the Xbox One. I know, I expected the PS4 to win in every category due to that fact. Except in the controller category. it was still close but it Only won because of Sony Fanboys.

What I am trying to say is that the majority of the votes in the controller category were made by PS4 fanboys.
There is really no arguing which is the best controller overall.
The touchpad doesn't add anything useful to the gaming experience.

If it weren't for fanboys the PS4 would still win. Except in the Controller category.

Statix1540d ago (Edited 1540d ago )

Personally, as a "PS3 fanboy" I do agree that Microsoft should've at least won the controller category. Xbox controllers traditionally have great ergonomics, and the one advantage I always felt the Playstation controllers had--convex analog thumbsticks--was changed in favor of concave sticks for the PS4. I personally am not happy at all about Sony switching to concave thumbsticks, because I always felt the rounded-top PS3 thumbsticks offered superior control and precision over the 360's concave thumbsticks.

Hopefully, it won't be terribly difficult to modify the PS4 controller to have PS3-style thumbsticks.

420Tokes1540d ago

A next gen controller that STILL requires batteries CMON REALLY BATTERIES ?!?!?!?

ABizzel11540d ago

@Gildarts

Everyone had a chance to vote, so blame your fellow Xbox fans. I voted for the PS4 in all categories besides controller, although as with the votes I agree it could be a lot closer this time than normal.

You have to realize PlayStation gamers have been using that style of layout for 10 - nearly 20 years so it's normal for them. If you grew up on Xbox then yeah the controller feels better to you.

MRMagoo1231540d ago

I am a sony fan but i cant believe anyone would think that the MS controller is the best, the thing is my thumbs are in the same spot on both my hands just mirrored so therefore i like to have my thumbs positioned in the same spot on my controller. The xbox controller has always sucked to me i just dont like it at all only someone with a spastic hand would need a thumb stick in the wrong place like that.

OT sony is expected to win anyway considering the xbone is going to suck and only xbots or ppl that have no clue about it think otherwise.

HammadTheBeast1540d ago

Are you crazy? The IGN space is filled to the brim with crazy Xbox fans as the majority. Sure there are a few PS nuts, but the majority is on Xbox and the results are telling.
