Now that the Xbox One and the PS4 are nearly identical, it comes down to exclusives when choosing which console to buy.
This is an fanboy opinion. Apparently to this guy everything related to PS4 sucks, what is really appealing on PS4 ain't that much to this person. He also says that everything related to XBOX is amazing. Don't bother reading this.
He can have his own opinion, but he cannot have his own facts.
My favorite line was "the Xbox One will be priced at $499. The Xbox One comes with a Kinect, though, which in some ways, justifies the extra $100" Yeah right. Other funny things (slightly altered to show the real meaning) "It's all about the games, but wait, I'm an Xbox person, so screw everything else". "I don't know anything about Playstation, I've just had my console for almost 3 years" "Killzone is so Halo, so I won't buy Killzone" "I love vibrating triggers" "I can finally play Metal Gear now that I won't be forced to use the Dualshock" "Ryse is just like COD" "I have to repeat that Kinect is worth the extra $100, I'm sure it will be integrated to core games this time, and it will be FABULOUS"
it can be all about the games. Its always been about the games from the gamers perspective. Its about the features and restrictions from the consumers perspective. While all gamers are consumers, not all consumers are gamers. that is why there are two perspectives in this example. Both will have games that appeal to different demographics. They will have good games and bad games which has been the tradition of things since the late 70's. Not every game appeals to every gamer and its okay. I buy the ones that appeal to me regardless of platform. this gen will be no different, I take that back. this gen will be different in that the game will be exceedingly better due to the technical differences as compared to the previous gens.
It was always about the games, it's just that MS decided to add some unnecessary drama to the mix.
I am so glad Kinect games are coming out the wazoo. Am sad that Kinect is forced into the console ecosystem though(Didn't mean to offend Kinect Supporters). I'm looking forward to seeing more titles being announced. Like maybe Gears of War 4, Fable IV, God of War 4, Uncharted 4, Syphon Filter 4, and LBP 3?? And you can bet there will be new IP's coming up. Still I want to hear more about Deep Down, Dark Sorcerer, The Last Guardian, and Agent.(Come on Rockstar either make this or GTA Vita) Sad to see Indie devs not getting the love from MS side. Indie games are just getting bigger and bigger. So many great next gen games, but the upcoming games this year, that get me personally excited are Beyond 2 Souls, GT6, GTA V, and Watch Dogs. My PS3 still has life in it =)
im sorry i just get so frustrated when someone compares stuff like that. killzone and halo are two different games completely. character movement art style story weapons and such all different and if the article dude never had playstation, why compare. thats like comparing gears of war to uncharted. I never seen Marcus Fenix climb a mountain Ive never seen Drake with a Lancer gun sh**
If it was all about the games, Xbox One would still be lagging behind. PS4 showed off far more gameplay demonstrations at E3. Xbox One had CGI trailers and games running on PCs with Nvidia cards. And even so, Sony is the one pushing forward f2p and MMO games on PS4. Planetside 2, Warframe, and DC Universe will be f2p on Day One. Does X1 have an equivalent? But yeah, it's all about the games, right? Let's forget about the differences in hardware, the differences in price, and the Kinect requirement.
Planetside 2 and Warframe are not day 1, both rumored for 2014 release on PS4. Also, it was shown that DR3, KI, Ryse, and Forza were all running on the hardware. Lococyle, the horribly optimized AC4, and Watch Dogs were all running on PC. This was already stated after E3.
But less exclusive software. People were expecting a lot of gameplay from titles that can be more than a year away. Considering they actually showed the games existing that's more than enough to keep gamers interested. Before we got nothing, not it seems Microsoft is flaunting it's money. Unless those 3rd party demos makes Sony god somehow? Fanboys with that fanboy logic. Why can't people just admit Microsoft had a pretty good showing in terms of software, especially in comparison to the last 4 E3's?
'PS4 showed off far more gameplay demonstrations at E3. Xbox One had CGI trailers and games running on PCs with Nvidia cards. ' Did they? Infamous:Second Son, Killzone 4, Drive Club and Knack. Games we already knew about. The Order: 1886 was CGI. Apart from that, what else was there that wasn't available anywhere else? Not much. The only game I was shown that interested me in getting a ps4 was Infamous:Second Son, not enough to buy a ps4 day one though. Let's be clear, Sony won E3 because of the DRM business, the price point and for being more powerful, not because they showed off tons of games. From a games point of view they did quite badly. Now DRM has been taken away they have the price point and the fact the console is more powerful, but the games are key.
@loki86 "Planetside 2 and Warframe are not day 1, both rumored for 2014 release on PS4." Where did you read that. They are both launch window.
Xbox One Titles Shown or Announced: 11/15 PS4 Titles Shown or Announced: 7(?)/20 And yet its a pre-order massacre. If its about games only, I shudder to think of when Sony reveals the rest of their first party line-up, or what Naughty Dog's second teams worked on...
stupid article. It was a waist of my time and my click. Also I think we all know who has the best and most exclusives at this point.
I don't think someone being more comfortable with a console's ecosystem makes them a fan boy at all. I think blindly bashing another console defines fan boy.
I think it comes down to this : PS4 is built around being indie-friendly and dev-friendly, which will increase its chances of getting good indie games... and games in general. Xbox One is built with Kinect in mind, which will increase its chances of getting kinect games. Now it's not nearly as simple as that, since relationships between companies and other factors come into play, but I think these are the basic advantages that stand out for each console.
actually it's also about price, $100 difference between the 2, still a big deal....
First adopters are all hardcore fans, price is not an issue. While $500 is more expensive, it's not a bad price considering what it's coming with.
the price will not change for the first year, by then all the hardcore fans will have bought one so yes price will be a difference. Look at PS3, it offered significantly more in the hardware end and cost more than the xbox 360, the hardcore fans kept sales up the first 2 months and then it took a nosedive until they cut the price
Maybe but the ps launched with an upgradable bluray player wi fi proper surround sound yet it was still considered high price. The cheapest blu ray player at that time was nearly 1000 quid. Sometimes, whats in it doesnt matter
No $500 is an okay price. But it's a bad price considering what it's coming with.
It's coming with cheap looking hardware and inferior specs.Not even a headset. $100 more for a camera isn't really worth it imo.Pretty bad price
Both consoles will have price drops down the road regardless. It's about the games and better 1st party developers and that's Sony imo. As of right now I'd be gaming on my PS3 for a while til I get my PS4.
The $100 price makes sense in some ways because it comes packed in with the Kinect.
Kinect is forced on you so no it doesn't make sense. if MS was smart they would release a $399 version without Kinect, THAT would level the playing field.
But they can't because the system requires it and if they did, they'd still be the weaker system and still would be the guys who tried to screw us over in the first place.
blu ray was forced on us..people said sony should release a ps3 with a dvd drive..DID THEY?,,,
"It is more about the games now than a week ago" #bettertitles
If its all about games the xbox one is the console for true gamers Microsoft Raped sony. pure rape sony when it came to games. because unlike sony microsoft is doing what uss real gamers wants,games!!!! It has titanfall, creators of the award winning cod franchise and the best fps game of all time mw2. are making this game so is obiously gonna be great. KIller instinct the greatest fighting game of all times is making his triumphant return to consoles to show sony how real fighting games look like unlike sony all stars. Halo the greatest fps franchise of all times the game godfather of all shooting games the game that put fps shooters on the map, the game that made fps shooters cool again. Dead Rising the best zombie game out there RIp resident evil, the game that revolutionised all zombie games with its sandbox style. forza 5 the new king of racing game. last one got a 90 on metacritic, while the last gran turismo got a puny 84 percent. its obvious Forza is the new KIng! And also the best online gaming service on the planet xbox live just got a ton better with new features like unlimited friends etc. I Can go on and on. but i will run out of space. Tell me any games that sony showed in e3 that are any good like the ones i just listed i dare you. Microsoft has done it again, giving uss true gamers what we want Games!!!!! It feels good being a future xbox one owner,the home of true gamers.
I'm sorry but that was a chore to read, Microsoft shafted most people in terms of exclusives this generation. (last half anyways) Now they're doing what seems to be a lot of good things. But don't go off circle jerking them it gives them bad ideas. Keep em on a tight leash and the games will keep coming, act like you just did and you won't see any.
Ha ha, nice 1. Kudos +1.....
So basically I state a fact. And I'm a fanboy ? Indeed I am. I will support sony 100% this gen. I mean how wouldn't I ? Sony's winning while your whining. In price, games, power, shape, every aspect you can think of. While the microsoft console is completely unaesthetic, the controls still come with batteries, I mean Kinect ? Is this the future of gaming ? The only game worth on that conference was halo and It was just a teaser. We are both fanboys but you speculate, and I argue.
I think i'm gonna barf.
Do you think best and greatest are different then? Unless you mean greatest in a mathematical sense... both cod and halo can't both be the best/greatest. Never go full retard...
Uss real gamers? I suggest you stay with your precious One, watch out for volcanoes though.
Im still waiting for somebody to list better sony exclusives than the ones i just mention.
Oh no, he's waiting... In your mind you will be waiting a long while, in mine I replaced your homogeneous titles in an instant, but I guess you'd rather fisher price in space than something interesting from Quantic dream or Media Molecule. You're waiting for me to mention better games, I'm still waiting for you to mention some good ones.
@Corywebb93 I'd love to see how big that glass you drink out of is, because that is by far the most koolaid I've ever seen. P.S. The latest PS3 release, you might have heard of it... The Last of Us... destroys all your future Xbox 1 games. And while Titan Fall looks fun imo it will eventually come to the PS4, not to mention the shooters the PS4 already has. Your praise of Halo as the godfather of all shooting games seals the deal on your lack of true shooter experience and education. I feel bad for you.
@Corywebb93 And I should listen to someone who wants to talk about great games when their avatar is from the game Haze? Sony has a deeper history in video games. Their exclusives are amazing and diverse. The Last of Us is a prime example. There will be plenty of great exclusives on PS4. That I can assure you.
killer instinct the greatest fighting game of all time? lol what.. where you born 2 weeks ago?
Killer Instinct hasn't been seen or heard from in about 15 years, so my guess would be "no, he wasn't born 2 weeks ago."
That what a fail list thank's for the laugh.
Guerrilla Games' new IP. Naughty Dog's PS4 game. Sony Santa Monica's new IP. Media Molecule's new IP. We still haven't seen those and they are some of the best developers in the industry.
Guysss, you fed the troll.
Hmm artical written by a fanboy killzone a cheap knockoff? Killzone prolly came out be4 halo and killzone out does halo and secondly sony has alot more to offer in games
Halo: Combat Evolved launched with the original Xbox in 2001. Killzone launched in 2004. Unless all FPS games are the same, these franchises are definitely different. Not the difference of Half-Life 2 and Call of Duty, but a definite difference.
I remember early on during 360 vs ps3 it was brought up in every discussion how ps3 has no games and that ended up changing drastically, but I see it being brought up a lot now during ps4 vs X1. People should know not to doubt Sony when it comes to games, but good to see Microsoft investing in games too.
Thats just the start rest is multiplat sony has more exclusives due to more first party studios and full support of indies people dont think they buy an x1 for no reason thinking its good that the games are pretty much multiplat
Hey, he plagiarized my catch phrase. Anyways, he is right, it is all about the games that each individual wants to play. For me, Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Project Spark, Killer Instinct, and Titanfall made that pretty simple for my decision.
I suppose that you know the other 13 unannounced exclusives of PS4, and you don't like the 70+ titles that they have announced right? I don't think that the decision is simple, and don't think that your decision was smart
PS4 for me but what about you guys like is ps4 dislike x1 !!
What company do you trust more for games? The PS4, with Sony's track record of exclusives, a more powerful console, a more open system especially for indie developers, and a console with a company clearly focusing on gaming. Or Microsoft. Tough choice...
You make it sound like Sony is perfect. lol
Haha, Sony is far, far from perfect. But as a gamer, I just feel a lot more confident in them than Microsoft. And while I perfectly understand if there are people who are more compelled by one or two of the Xbox One's exclusives, I would definitely suggest caution all things considered. Honestly it's smart to wait at least 6 months for a new console. But with the Xbox One and all the obfuscation and backpedaling (along with troubling RUMORS), I think it's crazy to back their console unless you simply have the means to do so.
Lets see... Sony told gamers not to turn their consoles on for like a week. Sony told gamers to get a second job to pay for the PS3. PSN was down for nearly a month and gamers had their info stolen. Yeah, that sounds so much better.
MS had a great showing. Sony had a great showing. If you like MS's exclusives, get an Xbox. If you like Sony's exclusives, get a PS4. If this is all over Titanfall... it's EA guys.
It is all about time now...
If it's all about the games now, I'm looking at long term and going by this gen, I know which company brings the game support.
Let the games begin....!!
Dont forget the $100 price difference, mandatory kinect and online required for initial set up
Anyone that thinks either console wont have great games is just beyond stupid or just started gaming the other night.. You cant go wrong with either console if its just about games, at this point. i had planned to buy the ps4 first and xb1 like 2 weeks later, sony had me sold after the reveal and for me all ms had to do was announce killer instinct. when they did i was like im buynit! Then..... I started hearing some beyond stupid shit with the drm, no used games etc... I was still able to let it go cause i rarely lend or buy used and dont mind DD at all, but i hate the full price of them. But then i heard a tsar bomb go off " if you dont check in 24 hrs you only get an hour to play off line.." lmfao beyond stupid of a idea, its just..... Is he still working ms? F that! I been through a lot with the 360 especially down time, hell my s model stopped reading my games 2 yrs ago 1.5 yrs after i got it! Now your going to tell me that you added a " feature" that wont allow me to play my system at all if i decide to cut my internet or my internet goes down. In my eyes its not a feature its frikin rrod 2.0! I will not support ms for a long time if ever... I did the same thing with the ps3 i hated how sony was acting, i didnt buy it until kz2 came out.and only got exclusives on it nothing more till now. Yes i know ms flipped tge switch but in a dick way too, i didnt even know they had some kind of family share thing till they cancled it! Lol ms you lost your way big time so its time to shape up lets see if you can pull off a sony ps3.. You took it wsy to far with that restriction that idea should have never been entertained!
So it's: Titanfall Dead Rising 3 Sunset Overdrive Project Spark Forza Motorsport 5 Quantum Break D4 Ryse: Son of Rome Killer Instinct Fantasia: Music Evolved Halo 5 Crimson Dragon Below vs. Knack Killzone: Shadow Fall InFamous: Second Son Drive Club The Order: 1886 Octodad? Deep Down? What am I missing?
Sony to unveil the rest of there line up. Ms showed everything already.
Wow, I didn't know MS showed off all of their hardcore games of the 15 exclusives already.
Planetside 2 DCU Online Warframe Blacklight Retribution MLB The Show 14 is a given
I couldn't have said it better my self.
Where was the LBP3 announcement! Will it happen! PS3 bought the best game assortment, they will do it again with ps4, something for everyone and consistent releases.
I think ms revealed 99% of there cards at e3. Sony revealed 50%. In 3 years time ms will be recycling the same old, whilst sony will deliver new ip's
I'm betting it will be a repeat of this gen. MS will start off strong, and then the games will just fade away, except for their usual franchises.
Yup sony is all about new games and they never recycle I mean lets see here GoW 1, 2, 3 plus whats on vita Uncharted 1, 2, 3 Gt 12345 and 6 Infamous 1, 2 Resistance 1, 2, 3 Little big planet 1, 2 Jack and daxter 1, 2, 3 and whatever names they keep giving the series Killzone 1, 2, 3 And so on.. Nope!! Never!!...sony never recycles its gsmes. You can expect nothing but new ips on ps4 just like on ps3
