While the Xbox One has been a firestorm of controversy in the last few weeks, the PS4 has quietly accepted the praises of the many who are unhappy with Microsoft’s new, always-on direction.
Awesomeness Sony always delivers. http://i.minus.com/il6Wx5Ne...
Best thing on the internet today.
"A PSN that matches or exceeds Xbox Live for gaming" i don't agree with that point at all having to pay for xbox live is the number one reason i haven't got a 360. i think psn is fine if not better as it is the only difference was the lack of ram that limited the ps3 in terms of multitasking making online features like cross game chat not possible. with 8GB gddr5 on the ps4 that certainly won't be a problem going forward they just need to integrate these online feature in a clean interface with the ps4. using the touch pad to navigate menus would be neat. on the subject of that i hope how the ps4 UI will look is revealed in much more detail at E3 maybe not at the conference but after it
*** So far, while the exclusive games are limited on both sides, I have to give this one to Microsoft. Forza is a phenomenal car series, and Remedy makes really interesting games; my first glance suggests the Xbox One will have more exclusive games I’m personally interested in.*** I don't get that, then Forza will just be the same old racing games we've had this entire gen on both platforms. Then you have inFAMOUS SS, Knack, Drive Club (a bloody racing game)
Finally putting the DRM issue to rest.
I'll cry if I see kingdom hearts 3! It skipped the ps3 which was a shame but it can wow us 10x more on the ps4.
Vita games. Some sort of option for PS4 re: PS1, PS2, PSN and PS3 games.
Announce Oculus Rift support

It would be great to see if Play station is intending on doing anything with used games since they haven't really touched on it in detail. I'm hoping Xbox One is the only console trying to force unnecessary things down consumers throats, otherwise the console war to me is almost dead. The disabling of all game content on Xbox with no internet is a killer for me, no matter the games they have they've now lost my interest. Microsoft is losing touch with their consumers all round, Windows 8 for example they made it almost based on touch screen functioning. They've received so many complaints they've been forced to re-add the start button, though apparently now with different functions. I was a big Xbox fan besides the controllers, the hard drive and semi computer likeness won it over the PS2 for me. Xbox 360 again for me software wise started off strong, and the delay on PS3 really didn't help their cause. Though mid way through this current gen, Microsoft decided to change into a media machine rather then gaming. Cluttering a perfect menu and UI system with advertising and annoying to navigate things. I'm not a fan boy on any consoles I buy what I like, and this gen so far Xbox One is a no purchase. Depending on the other functions of PS4 that they haven't quite mentioned it could be only PC for me. Though I'm hoping to see great Play Station news because I love laying back play style of a console rather then mouse n keyboard setup on PC (Yes I'm aware I can use controllers on PC though you are at a disadvantage online while doing that). Once the details are on the console is told I'd love to see all next gen games not just exclusives. I'm a gamer I play a good game on any platform I can though this is the first time in console history I've considered not purchasing both consoles. (The last Nintendo product I've bought was Nintendo 64 which was one of my favourite consoles though they went in a different direction and I've stopped purchasing their products) As of yet this next gen news has really yet to impress me and has got me thinking PC will get me the best value for money as I already own a gaming PC. I'd love to see something from Sony that blows my mind or for Xbox One to say "It doesn't need internet to play games at all, and everything we announced is going to be changed". So far I'm going to purchase a PS4 not a Xbox One and not a WiiU. Though depending on the announcements at E3 Sony could change from a purchase to a non purchase, only time will tell.
