Let me know what you think, guys!

unworthy151139d ago

I'm getting both eventually, but probably PS4 first depending on the launch titles.

Vinc3601139d ago

That may be my situation, but I'll need MS to backtrack on most of their policies... and on price.

Panthers1139d ago

Just pre-ordered a PS4 today and Gamestop promised me first day. I hope they keep that promise.

darthv721139d ago

the order I get them in is depending on what launch title appeals to me most.

since right off the top I get a game as part of my membership.....

jmac531139d ago

Preordered launch PS4 from Amazon and will eventually get a One after a price drop.

I’ve decided to preform a scientific experiment with regards to Cliffy B’s statements. I simulated the non-existent dude bro idiot by drinking heavily and smashing my head in my head in a car door until I could no longer remember my social security number or the scientific method. Unfortunately, I could still tell the difference between $400 and $500, and read the amazon page that listed CoD ghosts as coming to both 360 and PS3. Therefore I still have no reason to buy an XBone, or if I’m this hypothetical proto-idiot even a PS4.See, the “core” group that microsoft pissed off are the ones who get worked up about the whole console war thing, Billy McDouchehat who only plays x-box for CoD has no such brand loyalty. He just wants CoD and he doesn’t really care how he gets it. Microsoft is still going to get spanked by this unless they can either win back the “core” gamers or lower the price enough for people who don’t really care as much to buy the xbone over the PS4.

X1 even more now that the used game restriction wont be a problem for me since my friends and family on the east coast can share games very easily.

micro is foolish to not promoting this sharing structure more after the used game mess. Aloo of people still dont know you can do this.

This plus the great games coming, cool features, xbox live community, all make the X1 alot more appealing to me.

Me and my brother have our PS4s ordered.

Their policies are much better as they don't treat me as if I'm an idiot, a child and a criminal. And historically they just make the more varied and compelling exclusives.

The price, the policies and the more powerful hardware will also make it better for multi-platform titles.

For everything else me and my brother already have more than capable PCs.

CyberSentinel1139d ago

I have already pre-ordered 2 PS4's. I can understand some forms of DRM, but taking games away from people or locking them out of offline play, just because they can't "authenticate" every 24 hours, is going to far. M$ should just go to an all digital model like steam, if they want to be this restrictive.

Sorry M$, I'm "jumping out".

MysticStrummer1139d ago (Edited 1139d ago )

PS4.

Not even close, though I have had to think about Sony's new policy to charge for online play. I'm good at justifying things though, and PS+ is definitely a really good value with all the games they either include or discount. Also, I like to take part in betas and PS+ members get in early. Having Drive Club as the first free game will be a bonus because I'm interested in it already anyway.

Right now, one of the games I'm most interested in is Planetside 2, which will be free and playable with or without PS+. Same goes for DC Universe Online, though I've already played the PS3 version so I know I like it. Even if I wasn't getting PS+ I'd buy a PS4 for single player games and play those two free SOE titles. I'm betting there will be more of those, and that Everquest will be one of them.

EDIT - Speaking of votes...

This was truly a tough decision for myself, and after much deep thought and deliberation I have decided to place my hard earned cash towards a pre order for the Xbox One. The features, fantastic video game lineup, and incredible Kinect innovation simply make it too difficult to pass up at its current price point. Also, after viewing the admirable showing by Nintendo, I may be persuaded to acquire a WiiU should the possibility of a price drop present itself. Furthermore, in regards to the ps4, I believe it has huge potential for the future, but currently I feel I can gain more from the Xbox Ones features, not to mention actual playing time with it's highly anticipated exclusive announced line up. My ps3 will have to suffice for all of my playstation needs until possibly after the holiday season once the often hectic end of the year rush has concluded.

TheDarpaChief1139d ago

All of the games were third party! as in on ps4 aswell. Damn illusion got to 360Dergees

Themba761139d ago

kinect sux never owned own never will. it's a useless gimmick for flailing your arms around just stupid.

You are starting to sound like a robot, how much do you get paid?

johnnywit1139d ago

I. Have to thank MS because after watching there Xbone reveal and E3 they made choosing my next gen console much easier. Ps4 for me.

I'll get the one which has the best games. That's all it comes down to, not which one has the best policies, though that's a nice bonus.

Vinc3601139d ago

I'd say policies are at least as important as games to most people. For example, I'd never get the Xbox One version of a game OVER the PS4 version right now, simply because the PS4 version allows me to do more things and has more value by default. Supporting the right policies has a huge impact on the future of the industry, if you want to make a difference, it's important to look past trivial things, though I understand not everyone likes the same thing. If Halo is really important to you and you can't go without it, definitely get the Xbox, but why would you do such a thing if what you play is third party games, for example?

unworthy151139d ago

Well that's your opinion.

bobtheimpaler1139d ago

Exactly. If I was a fan of the xbox one. The best you can do for everyone including yourself, is to wait until they change their policies. It's got nothing to do with system fanboyism. It's for the sake of our hobby - gaming. Consoles are not PCs. And not all PC games have DRM.

The Witcher Series for example. CD Project is very outspoken against DRM and if I wanted to I could lend those games to a friend. Why would I buy the series on xbone with all it's restriction when there's a superior version without such restrictions available.

BananaEatingSquid1139d ago

I can't really respect Microsoft for their Xbox One policies right now. I might get the Xbox One ONE day, but I'm hoping they change these policies.

And wow the console's name feels awkward to say sometimes.

Vinc3601139d ago

It doesn't quite roll off the tongue.

unworthy151139d ago

I like the name, not sure why people hate it. It's certainly better than Xbox Loop.

legionsoup1139d ago

At this point, we have to fight the policy of Xbox One and MS. Why? Because supporting it with $$ shows them it's okay to do these things. It tells them they can continue to do these things.

Also...Infamous Second Son. :)

BananaEatingSquid1139d ago

PS4 or Xbox One? Is this even a question? PS4!

Vinc3601139d ago

I'm with you on this one. But I really want MS to improve, nobody wants a monopoly in any industry, it's always a bad thing.

Testfire1139d ago

Sony leaned from mistakes with the early years of PS3, hopefully MS learns from the mistakes it's making right now and improves soon. This is exactly why we need competition, without it companies do whatever they want with no consequence.

StuffofLegend1139d ago

Yes dude, I like my Sony, but for the sake of the market, it sucks that MS has shot themselves in the foot.

unworthy151139d ago

It's a question for everyone.

BananaEatingSquid1139d ago

Just look around the internet for a while... certainly more people fancy the PS4 over the Xbox One ;)

NegativeCreepWA1139d ago

Good thing some of us think for ourselves.

While I willing getting both eventually, I'll be the XB0 first, because I prefer MS controllers and XBL.

BananaEatingSquid1139d ago

I thought both systems showed off some pretty great games at E3. I particularly liked MGS V being shown off at Microsoft's, though I'm going to get it on PS4 anyway.

Being a fan of Indie games also makes the PS4 more attractive in my eyes.

StuffofLegend1139d ago

My thoughts, if MGS V had ended up being X1 exclusive, I would have gritted my teeth and bought that console.

StuffofLegend1137d ago

@vlon, what does that have to with anything. I prefer to get it on ps4, but if it had been X1 exclusive, then I would have had to buy that shitty X1

BananaEatingSquid1139d ago

Oh yeah, I've already got my PS4 pre-ordered! I'm so ready for this. Bring it on.
