Early data suggests Sony’s E3 conference made a stronger impact on consumers than Microsoft.
And Xbone fans were celebrating the initial reports of Xbone preorders being greater than PS4. Once both the consoles and their prices were revealed everyone flocked towards PS4. 4>1. FACT
They both are good with your opinion here what i see is that what make a difference is the price and the used game dilemma but what i saw on E3 was a really strong performance by Xbox. I hope Xbox change their approach toward used games so we can have an even competition.
At my gamestop the PS4 pre orders were full... Best buy and Microcenter were the same.... Had to slip the gamestop dude 20 bux to get a PS4 pre order on the shady side of town to get mine in. When I looked at his little sheet if paper it had four rows of several boxes with x's in them. The other row only had about 8 filled out.
Xbox one needs to die as soon as possible! This 100% anti-consumer product that doesn't even work in all areas of the world because you need a goddam check-in before the game starts has nothing to do on the market. Let's just get rid of it and fast!
They would have to change the price as well
I think they have relinquished about as much as they will. They will need to spend money however marketing, getting more exclusives, and finding ways to get people interested in what their product offers. They aren't going anywhere.
Don't count on Microsoft changing anything anytime soon, my guess is by the time they do it'll be to late and the gap between them and PS4 will be so far ahead it would take a delorean time machine to help them catch up.
And Xbone fans were celebrating the initial reports of Xbone preorders being greater than PS4 when you couldn't even pre order the ps4* fixed it :) (or atleast you couldnt in the tayside/angus area of Scotland, amazon, block busters, game)
Congrats Sony. Sony is making all the right decisions this time around. As a PS fan, its amazing to see how the tables have turned. PS3 released at a higher price point but this time around MS does the same. Crazy outcome. Anywho.... Got my Launch PS4 from Amazon.
That didn't make a difference to me. I was just waiting for something to catch my eye and soon as they showed Kingdom Hearts 3 and FFXV (even though they aren't exclusives) I pre-ordered on Amazon before the conference was even over. If the Xbox One fixes the BS about checkins and used games then I'll consider buying one once the price drops.
Sweet justice! ;p
i am sure i have seen another article that resembles this, the only difference is the image used for the articles of kaz laughing on the ms preorders
Although usually im all for balance this time i hope MS console will be complete fiasco. They crossed the line.
It wouldn't be good if Sony were to have no meaningful competition, on the other hand it would be bad for everyone if the xb1 were really successful.
there's always Nintendo around to provide competition
Yes I am ignoring them. If you're going to buy a multi-platform game and you have the choice between PS4 and Wii U most people will choose PS4. The only advantage the Wii U has is that their online is still free. When you talk about exclusives then they are just so totally different that for the most part they aren't really competing with each other.
the Wii U is not only good for exclusives because there are many upcoming multiplats are skipping the Wii U altogether
Wasn't just them crossing the line though, it was the arrogant way in which they done it.
MS will drop this DRM, I bet theyre working on in right this very minute, I hope they do, nobody should have this forced upon them
You can almost bet on it. They're in the boardrooms as we speak. Everybody is bringing up the fact that MS hasn't announced anything yet however E3 was just days ago. As I stated in another post, they need to have staff and board meetings before they announce anything. They are going to want to choose their words carefully. As for installation and always on, 360 was disc only until the firmware update which allowed you to install games onto the HDD. I'm sure they can do the same to allow for game play off Bluray discs. I also noticed that while the final PS4 specs were given at E3, MS didn't give out the final One specs.
If they were to drop it would mean doing away with many aspects of the console, such as full installs with no need for a disk to play a game, the 10 person game sharing etc. These are good features, it's just that you have to give up too much to get them.
if they drop kinect mandatory an 24 hr check im in an will own both ten person game share who cares it probably wont be available at launch an until god knows when .. yea there was cool features but drop the 24 hr check in an were fine an make it so i canm unplug the kinect if u need the kinect to turn it on fine then i should be able to unplug it if not there screwed that shits not comin in my house
Launch day ps4's are the only console sold out on amazon. And not the after launch ps4's are out selling launch day xbox's! http://www.amazon.com/best-... I knew M$ was dumb but really... According to amazon soon the last of us > xbox one. lol Seems sony is capturing america's interest more than xbox. I explained to all my friends what DRM is and now they want ps4. If xbox is get beaten in xbox land then I am sure they are getting destroyed world wide. and japan?? lol game over for xbox. @ElementX I agree some are weak minded.. have fun man..
DRM won't stop somebody like me from buying both consoles to play exclusives *EDIT* I was able to grab a launch version of the PS4. They went quickly
there is no worldwide for xbox they only work in 21 countrys usa usa usa usa usa canada usa usa usa usa uk usa usa usa usa usa usa usa usa thats were it works
Wow! 11 of the top 20 items are all playstation. It's a bloodbath for Microsoft right now.
I pre-ordered the PS4 first because I have the money for it now. I plan on having the Xbox one on launch day as well. People need to quit letting the gaming media blow this out of proportion. You can still trade your games at a licensed dealer. Because of the cloud you can play all of your games from another console as long as you are signed in to your account. There are many more neat things that more than make up for the always online requirement. Here is the link if you want to check it out! http://news.xbox.com/2013/0...
This is going to be a one long summer...
lol this console war reminds me of the blu ray vs the hd dvd. hey i was on the side of the hd dvd when clearly blu offered more and more people were supporting the format
And that came down to sony vs Microsoft
there gonna have to learn the hard way microsoft this next gen my advice make another console without the kinect an restrcitions an u guys will be able to compete but athis point no one will trust u anymore u allready bite the hand that feeds u if u were a pitbull u woulda allready been put down ms is probably hopin by laun ch no one will care anymore an we wont be still in a uproar abouth this there dead wrong
PS4 day one! I haven't per order my ps4 but I will soon.
