Head2Head: The Next Generation (Xbox One Vs PlayStation 4)

Lens of Truth writes "The biggest news at E3, hands down, was the next generation of consoles. It was hard to escape the hubub to find anyone talking about anything other than the PS4 and the Xbox One. But it’s understandable; we only really get new tech like this one a decade." (PS4, Xbox One)

Yea Xbox one is the better system for software and online forsure. But ps4 is the power house for graphics and exclusives. UNIT

Neither system has been released, so please don't make such statements. You have no idea what you're talking about.
RudeSole Devil  +   964d ago
What are you talking about, the systems are final and in production, the specs released at E3 our official as it gets. The dev kits are out developers have been using those spec. PS4 is more powerful plan and simple end of story.
Merrill  +   964d ago
Yes I know the PS4 is more powerful.

But you stating the Xbone 180 will be better for software and online is ridiculous. At least wait for them both to be released and actually running on the actual system.

MS needs to remove Kinect to be able to think of competing. Disagree all you want, people will not pay $100 extra for it and casual gamers will not care for any technical positives. If anything people will wait 1-2 years to even consider based on the line up, and if it even goes that far

Please dont use games that havnt even been announced as comparison for first party titles.
HammadTheBeast  +   964d ago
You're right there's no one must buy.....

Popoffboy187718  +   964d ago
I know Sony got the goodz lol ! I'm sayin name a blockbuster 4 Microsoft and one that's good not talkin sales. Don't trust Microsoft haven't had a gd new Ip since gears one i love some 360 back then. This not the same heads behind the Xbox brand. Xbox had some good momentum then people left things change
RudeSole Devil  +   964d ago
Lol my bad, to many awesome exclusives for Sony. But iI will be getting Halo and the new gears for sure.

To be honest, I don't really like the Xbox One's exclusives, all I saw was straight up shooters didn't really give it a glance. I'm looking for more of a diverse console that can cater to every single genre, and thats why I'm going PS4.
A-laughing-horse  +   964d ago
Like killzone?

Ryse wasn't a fps. Don't be a hater.
Godmars290  +   964d ago
No, Ryse isn't a FPS. Its a quicktime game which plays its own quicktime events. Currently it does anyway.

I'm still looking at the WiiU for the Monolith game. A price drop at this point.

Besides Second Son and Crimson Dragon, nothing on either side of the current console whine-fest has my attention, though honestly, there's far less appeal in bothering with an XB1 game which use to be and likely still is on XBLA.

And then there's the system's other baggage.
Deividas  +   964d ago
I dont know if you watched any interviews on how people felt on playing Ryse...they were not a was beyond basic combat and all quicktime. Looks gorgeous but boring.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   964d ago
Ryse looked horrible. It's like they tried to make Heavy Rain into an action game and it turned out horribly wrong. Sorry but a man thought it looked like a bad tech demo. Also Knack, Infamous, Killzone, and the Order (though that's just a trailer but a man likes the concept) look awesome with more coming at Gamescom.

This article while having some good points was completely flawed in others.... I will sit back and let the N4G COMMUNITY BE THE JUDGE ON THIS ONE!!!!!!!
PositiveEmotions  +   964d ago
Imo the PS4 has the lead as of now
NatureOfLogic  +   964d ago
As someone who has never owned an Xbox, I've gave MS many chances to convince me. I just don't see the value of owning an Xbox as long as Playstation and Nintendo is around. Halo and Gears just don't do it for me. MS needs some new snd refreshing exclusive IPs. Their most interesting new game is just another FPS.
A-laughing-horse  +   964d ago
Missing out on some good games man. Also, a superior online experience.
NatureOfLogic  +   964d ago
Not really big on the whole online thing, plus if I want online, I'll turn to my pc which is clearly superior in that area. I'm one of the few that still buy the consoles for the games and rarely touch online multiplayer, so superior online is not really a selling point for me, as I prefer offline singleplayer experience to online. I'm only interested in one online game at the moment, FFXIV ARR, which is currently not available on Xbox consoles. Xbox online might be superior to Playstation, but that's enough for me to justify my purchase of an Xbox because I already have a gaming PC. I need great games, not great online.
FrightfulActions  +   964d ago

Plus, since you already have a gaming PC you're pretty much covered for any Xbox game you might want to play. Many of the games that Xbox likes to boast as being 'exclusive' to the Xbox are on also released on PC.

Playstation exclusives on the other hand are truly exclusive to the the Playstation. A combination of PC and PS4 promises to make a very nice gaming setup, imo.

Xbox one with the advantage in games?? hahahahaha

I am asking every hard core xbox fan what makes you like a company that almost got away with taking away your rights? I understand that like me a lot of people bond with their opinion of consoles choice, or games. I have both a 360 and PS3 and while I had a ton of fun playing gears of war and Halo, I still cannot justify supporting Microsoft in their endeavor of tying us into one box. I don't think games would be as fun if there was no competition and don't get me wrong when the PS3 came out there really was no justifying its price unless you wanted Blu-ray. Anyway all I am asking is once you xbox fans and get your wish and MS takes over gaming allows zero competition then what? Would you go along with any crazy path they decide to go, DRM, 24hour checks? I mean if Sony did not force their hand this time do you think they would have changed anything? If another company is not there do you think they would change anything?
Popoffboy187718  +   964d ago
Microsoft--I wasn't trying touch your butt lol! U turn backaround and stand inline while I'm behind with no worries!!! Lol
SEAN1617  +   964d ago
I think we really need to stop making each other enemies we all want to have fun playing a game we love, no matter what platform its on. I am just being responsible in the long run, I cannot justify MS at the moment because they really showed their hand, their vision of the future. I love their games Gear of war and Halo multiplayer are my fav, live had a more robust community as far as people talking(even if a lot of it was hateful early on, but now they are playing a game of catch up, and not on features but policies which they should have had enough common sense to do from the beginning. THIS IS MY OPIONION!
KrisButtar  +   964d ago
I'm concerned about getting an XB1 because of all this cloud talk, The reason is because if all these games that come out need the power of the cloud require internet? they say the system can be played offline but they also keep saying the power of the cloud will make it stronger/better. So 2 years down the road are all games on the XB1 require the cloud or even most games be unplayable without the cloud meaning it needs an online connection to play. I find it very conflicting info. to use the cloud you need internet right?

Skate-AK  +   964d ago
That's a pretty good point. Would they scale the game down or take away features to be played offline, if it runs better would the cloud? I honestly don't think they would.
KrisButtar  +   964d ago
things like titanfall is only possible with the cloud, comments like that, is there going to be any games that doesn't require the cloud in a couple years on the system? I know it would piss a lot of people off who bought one because XB1 didn't require internet but the games do.
punisher99  +   963d ago
What a great point you bring up sir.
personally I think MS lied when they say their console wont require internet connection in an attempt to get back in the good graces of gamers.
KrisButtar  +   963d ago
I've brought this couple a couple times already, and a few answers I got was all the XB1 games would work but if you have Internet you would get the extra features. Also it seems that without the cloud the XB1 would only be good for exclusives, as it would be better to buy the multiplats on the stronger machine.

Edit: Some exclusives wouldn't even work cause they use the power of the cloud, eg TitanFall says it wouldn't be possible without the cloud mean an exclusive that can't be play

"Until we can get the systems under our lens to test the performance differences between the DDR3 and DDR5 set-ups, we’re not going to truly have a champ."

The PS4 RAM is GDDR5. Not DDR5.

Also this: "One thing that I’m a bit concerned with for the PS4′s interface is that much of it seems reliant on typing."

Ummmmmm.......ok. I haven't seen much typing, but that's cool too. Guess he's talking about voice commands.
SpinalRemains138  +   964d ago
Lmao hahaha.

Maybe he used that Dragon software to dictate the article.

Yeah. Typing is so archaic that he uses it for his articles. :-D

Ya know, sometimes ppl are so retarded that I'm ashamed of being human. Really.
