With the E3 conferences out of the way, Sean Knight looks over the next-gen of console hardware and wonders who has the lead.
Games and features = Microsoft Low price no DRM = Sony.
totally agree with you!!
Same over and over again, in the end none of these regurgitated articles will matter, both will do well among their fanbase.
How so??? When Sony has more GAMES coming out in the first year than Microsoft??? And more interesting ones at that. lol... http://www.playstationlifes... That's not even including all the F2P, MMO, and Indie console exclusives on PS4. Hell, confirmed LAUNCH lineup alone, PS4 trumps the One... Killzone: ShadowFall Drive Club Knack The Witness Warframe Ryse - (QTE fest, funny considering MS fans bashed games like GOW for it, which GOW has WAY less) Forza - (Didn't we get one last year?) Mine Craft - (Again???) Dead Rising 3 - (I admit, looks good) Kinect Sports Rivals - (Lol, Kinect) XD
Features: -DRM -no used games Come again?
Games and Features, Low Price, No DRM = Sony. Television, TV, Sports, and COD = Microsoft *Fixed*
Cod is multiplatform though xD
@hdshatter You get the point.
I agree, what everyone here ignores is that you can share your full game library with 10! people.
You can share your PS4 games with infinite people.
10 person sharing on Xbone is a limit not a feature, also only 1 of those 10 people can play the game at a time. PS4 you can share retail games with as many people as you want. Xbone you cant share digital games at all, even the PS3 you could share digital games with 5 people and all of them could play it at the same time.
http://www.penny-arcade.com... "Spencer told me he believed that two people can play one copy of a game concurrently, but he urged me to check Microsoft's official wording on the matter to be sure." PS4 games won't allow 2 people to play the same disc will it?
"PS4 games won't allow 2 people to play the same disc will it?" Yep, it's called multiplayer.
"Yep, it's called multiplayer." /facepalm Let's see you and one friend both play Killzone: Shadow Fall on the PS4 with a total of one disc at the same time in two different locations on two different PS4 systems. Not split-screen.
PSVita Remote play.
As I've said 100 times it looked like MS showed more games because 1) People had low expectations anyway 2) Sony showed off two more game then MS at their reveal so when making comparisons list you would have to take away two MS games at their E3 to make up for the extra ones Sony showed off earlier 3) Most of MS games are timed exclusives (TitanFall, possibly DR3, PvZ Garden Warfare) 4) MS won't have a huge presence at Gamescom while Sony will and will most likely announce more games, as they will as TGS which MS will NOT be going to. Then you have the VGA's where I'm better NaughtyDogs new game will be shown off.
Yeah I agree with all you said, but the reasons the MS fanboys are up in arms about game comparisons is that: 1) They're riding on the "15 exclusives in the first year" train, even though Sony is getting 20 of them. 2) Sony had already revealed most of the games these PS4 games they showed at E3. Shadow Fall, Second Son, Knack etc. So Xbox is an automatic win for them. They ignore games like Killer Instinct looking dreadful compared to what was expected of bringing back a classic. And as per usual a game from Crytek demonstrating style over substance.
The gameless WiiU right now.. lol Ironic Nintendo's still in first place while MS and Sony still fighting for 2nd
Except that both will probably catch up to the WiiU in no time when they're released. Well, the PS4 will, the Xbox One will probably be in third place like the xbox and 360 ended up.
IDK all the WiiU needs is some games and a price drop.
yeah but guess what? Nintendo isn't going to cut the price of their Wii U like they did the 3DS. And as far as the games we want. nothing coming until 2014. and with only about 4 million wii u consoles buy the holidays the PS4 and xbox one will catch it.
i bet you cant sleep at night cause you're so delusional huh frigid?
Not a good comparison. XB1 = TV Box and an Expensive Remote Control with some gaming capability with restrictive DRM (24H check in, No internet no play, etc.), I can't even play it in my region. PS4 = Pure gaming console with extra features, limited DRM (copy protection for Blu-ray disc), anybody could buy one and play it anywhere. Not a hard choice to make if you ask me.
xbox Features: Bing search engine without ad block ps4 features: not watching me get undressed and having the fbi laugh at my recent weight gain.
at the moment, ps4
Doesn't really require much "analysis" to come to a conclusion. The only people desperately scrutinizing the next generation of hardware and trying debate this are diehard Microsoft fanboys who just can't let go. Hell, even Penny-Arcade has given up on the Xbox One.
The Dumpest qusetion of the day : Analysis: Which of Xbox One or PS4 has the edge? Ofcourse PS4 , everyone Knows that by now , Cheaper , No DRM , free region ...etc Lets assum Xbox will have the edge , I will still not buy it because it will be released in our country in Aisa late 2014 ! Mircosoft is simply Stupid .
Analysis.... PS4: Get your gaming on XB1: Get your privacy invaded
Called the Xbone because Kinect records you getting undressed and sends it to the FBI for "operation crotch watch" The database of worlds largest and smallest wood will be more accurate than ever now.
How many articles about this do we need -.-
I think people are missing the point of this article. It's not looking at the issues of DRM, used games, indie games,launch games, etc. What it is looking at are the specs of both consoles themselves and whether or not one will be more powerful than the other. Or if one will be more suited for next-gen and have a longer lifecycle. :)
Even that's pretty obvious, isn't it? One has more, faster RAM than the other. Yes, both with 8GB, but one has 5 available to games, while the other has 7. And that's JUST RAM. Not having to install every game entirely to the HDD is a bonus, too, especially since the HDD in the XBO isn't swappable.
You can add an external hard drive. Having your games installed is very convenient, just ask Steam users. http://www.engadget.com/201... Both systems will be next gen. consoles. The Wii U will be in a different class.
Lots of disagrees? I guess people don't like the convenience of having games on their hard drive for easy access. Or did I get disagrees for showing that the Xbox One supports external hard drives? It must be because I'm not bashing the system.
Probably because that's not as simple or easy as being able to increase the size of the HDD already in your system. Which one sounds better: XBO: you cannot add your own HDD, but you can attach an external HD. PS4: you can add your own HDD, and you can attach an external HD?
First of all this author loses all credibility by saying Xbox One has GDDR3 during the whole article. Completely different from DDR3. PS4 has an edge in every single category imo. Xbox One isn't exactly terrible aside from policy, but PS4 has it beat everywhere that matters this time around. You have to be a diehard fanboy in the extreme to not acknowledge it. Being cheaper and more powerful alone is just devastating enough. Xbox One has a few nice looking exclusives for near launch. But based on Sony's 1st party dev history, the exclusives disparity will only favor PS4 more and more. I mean PS3 is having about its best games year ever while 360 has pretty much completely faded. Aside from Halo/Gears in the last year there has been virtually no support from Microsoft.
Wait...I'm confused...how did I lose credibility by comparing the RAM each system will be using? GDDR3 and GDDR5 are different. That was a major point in the article...
Because there is no such thing as GDDR3. There's DDR3 and GDDR5, but no GDDR3.
actually there is such thing as gddr3 ram. it was developed by ATI and was used in last gen consoles. But yeah gddr3 isnt in the xbox one
My mistake. That was DDR5 I was thinking of that doesn't exist. I should know by now; got jumped on a few times for not having that G on the front.
It always seems to me that Playstation has more games for their systems especially exclusives, and I love the fact that they own the largest number of first party studios in the gaming industry. Sony never disappoints when it comes to games.
Xboxone for me im so anti sony I cant even think to take them seriously I just ignore them but the fans are happy that's the main thing.
Xbox definitely has the edge Of the blade against your throat. Sony has an advantage in every area. Its not even debatable with any seriousness.
