Sony revealed some details about the PS4 earlier this year but has yet to offer gamers a complete view of the product - its first major game machine since the PlayStation 3 went on sale in 2006.
The fight doesn't bother me I will only get xboxone and will be enjoying it, I will continue to get nasty private messages on social gaming sites for my troubles but hey its a laugh.
Yep, Xbox One only for me as well.
I've gotten those too!
I instant delete those messages, no idea why people expect me to read their blunt ranting over disagreeing with what i prefer. Hey, i prefer strawberry´s, NO YOU MUST like APPLES; APPLES ARGH YOU IDIOT; LIKE APPLES, NOW!!!
SONY=Ip man M$=Black Belts. http://youtu.be/V3FhFoRg6Ws
tomorrow decides the future of gaming as we know it. 10 years from now we will look back and laugh at how ms arrogance almost destroyed gaming as we know it or the worst tech in history to be dead on arrival
Microsoft is the birth of the Antichrist but for gaming! And Sony is Jesus. And Ragnarok is upon us.
AHHH YES! The same Sony that enforced DRM on their audio CD's then got sued for it in 2005. And is one of the founders of an organization dedicated to DRM in film. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
... which has WHAT to do with gaming, Shaun?
I think Microsoft will laugh at the stupidity of the consumers and enjoy their fat bank.
Only the Xbox in my house.
ooh fanboy fight in three..two.. hold on..*slaps PS fanboy on back of head* "it was him!" *points at 360 fanboy* lol seriously..get em both..best of both worlds..unless MS kill us with kinect and "apps" tomrorow! but for now Im going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say they will show me some stuff I will want.
only if u want to support an always online system, DRM and get kinect forced on you besides a movie and tv centered console... yeah sure.. go get an xbox aswell i dont get ppl who buy a console for one game... xbox doesnt offer anything new.
@karl whether it online all the time is not the issue. My nexus 4 is ALWAYS online. MY Ipad is ALWAYS online My sky HD box is constantly connected to the router so I can watch on demand TV Honstly..you sound like one of these people that would still use a rotary dial telephone if somebody didnt drag you out the stone age.. no offence intended.. As far as kinect goes..yeah, I agree..creeps me out. who said they were buying an Xbone for one game? I mean no offence when I say this but you just sound like your parroting concerns about XBone that we are already aware of. Dont waste your bubbles on poorly thought out responses.
@The realness Does any of those REQUIRE online is the question.I can say the same about my laptop but I can still do a majority of the stuff I do on it without internet, or an internet check in
im sorry if we dont agree but right now i can use my TV and my PS3 with nothing more than just my thumbs and its perfect. .. maybe the future is controlling our TV with our minds and that sounds like less an effort but start waving my hands and talking to my Tv feels like a step backwards to be honest.
looks like realness is another paid ms shill. His response is exactly what every other paid shill has been saying in every forum this past month or so.
what's the fight over? who will be second best to nintendo once e3's over.
As I see it, both consoles are heading in completely different directions. Not much of a fight here. I believe it's quite a good thing actually. This gen's Xbox and PS were pretty similar in terms of what the console could achieve, with notable differences being on the cost of online gaming and advantages of yearly subscription. For next gen, Xbox seems to go for a "everything at once" approach while PS seems to aim for the "Games first and only games" mentality. Not much of a fight to have here really. And while the next PS will probably have Netflix and Videos on demand like the PS3 already has, I don't think we'll ever see Sony using this as a marketing war horse. As for the PS3, it will be an added value that lays there for those that want it.
Even what we gamers would consider secondary markets are different between the two platforms. Sony is going with a very strong focus on social media it appears, while MS is going towards a very TV/Entertainment focus. It's really sad that that is probably what a lot of console wars will devolve in to in the future. Quite personally the nature of secondary features on a gaming console are pretty mundane this time around, and wholly based on subjectivity on what the user prefers. It's much easier to compare like things, such as common entertainment services that both systems have now, based on their quality and availability. But that's the console war for ya I guess. Quite honestly, I would be laughing my ass off if Sony came on stage tomorrow and said they implemented all the same features TV/Entertainment wise in their system based off their prior efforts in this field with the PS3 in Japan. Then I'd cry if they spent more than 10 minutes on it...which is really all a secondary feature deserves at a console reveal.
@gameonbro It isn't gamers that are being alienated as a whole, but just MS making the console overly US-oriented, and squeezing out potential fans overseas due to features pertaining to high income US families only. This is one of the reasons why I'm rooting for Sony this coming gen as they clearly care about gamers all over the world.
I'm a "own all consoles" kinda guy, but this gen, I may be getting Sony's console first. At any rate, I'm stoked about E3 and watching the big boys fight it out!
You should also look at the Wii U I think. It hasn't been getting a lot of love, but I believe new games will be more forthcoming on it. You didn't miss a whole lot waiting on it, but there are good games now, and some promising titles in the future. For me it's looking like a PS4/Wii U next gen.
Based on what we've heard so far, I'm not sure Sony and Microsoft are fighting in the same war any more, but the fanboys are still slugging it out because old habits are hard to break.
Yeah my thoughts exactly.
I got the 360 first because I couldn't wait any longer to step into next gen but seeing as PS4 will probably be out the same timeframe, I won't bother with the xbox this time round although I have fond memories of playing Viva Pinata, Bioshock and Forza 2 on it. Straight to the Playstation brand for me
First and foremost I love gaming, I do not like what microsoft is doing with their next console but what choice is there? I love halo and forza I could get a ps4 but I cant play halo or forza on a ps4, so the answer for me is to get both consoles I love games and altho im not happy with they way the xboxone is going ill just have to deal with it, im not going to give up my enjoyment of games such as halo and forza just because of the DRM and always on line issues, and by the way who is to say sony is going to be any different I bet they will have something similar with DRM altho they say they dont you know 3rd party publishers will, the way we knew gaming is gone and this will be the future altho it sucks we just have to except it or dont play games, and not playing games for me is not an option, its a hobbie that i wont give up.
I think Microsoft has a better chance of winning the console fight than most bloggers think on this website. Mainly because of there focus on other aspects of Xbox One when it was revealed. Everyone has low expectations for them. Even lower than Nintendo right now. So if they focus on games as they said, and hammer out these details that people are confused on, they can really only get better. Sony, however, was strong coming out of the gate, which means there are high expectations for them. A couple small problems, and all of a sudden, everyone thinks they have dropped the ball. And Nintendo is really not trying to compete with those two in the same way, since they aren't featuring a console. Microsoft will have to do a lot right, and Sony will have to make a couple mistakes (high PS4 price?), but I think it is doable. All 3 companies going into E3 have a lot to prove.
