PS4: 5 Reasons To Buy It Over Xbox One

WC - We were all expecting big things to come from Sony at this year’s E3 and they did not disappoint. Unlike their rival, Microsoft, Sony has delivered on their promises and listened to what the gamers want from the next generation of consoles.

Sony has not only proved to us that this year they have learnt from their past mistakes with the PS3, but they have also shown us why they are still one of the big names in the gaming industry.

@nick- Because that would make too much sense.

"Microsoft just attempted to treat every gamer like a criminal, they don't deserve to be supported."

I'm assuming you won't be supporting Sony either since they removed the Other OS feature from ALL PS3s and pigeonholed Vita owners into expensive proprietary memory cards...thus treating ever PS4/Vita owner like a criminal.

"their console is inferior in almost every way"

Your opinion. There are people out there that preferred the One's exclusives over the PS4's at E3, thus making it superior in the eyes of certain people with certain tastes.

"is more expensive"

Not necessarily. Both are the same price once you factor in the camera and at least one game. And Microsoft still has time to release a cheaper SKU. These consoles aren't coming out for 5 months.

"has less games in development"

How do you know how many games these companies have in development? Are you a double agent for Sony/MS? Are you admitting to corporate espionage?

"generally is just not as good"

Again...your opinion.

MariaHelFutura1755d ago (Edited 1755d ago )

Are you comparing memory cards and a operating system to what Microsoft tried to pull w/ the Xbox One? That would be crazy, even for you. What I think isn't that crazy, hence Microsoft doing the 180.

I was right, they/you were wrong. Deal with it.

-Mika-1755d ago (Edited 1755d ago )

1.Cheaper price - Ok

2.Better hardware - Debatable. Xbox cloud service could change things.

3.Better 1st party support - Really? MS announced so many exclusives at their conference. Sony didn't. Just because sony say they have 30 exclusives lined up for ps4 doesn't make it true. Until I see a trailer or gameplay for these so called exclusives. Than I will believe it.

4.10+ year support - How do you know the xbox one won't have 10 year support.

5.Will work in all countries at once. - MS announced the xbox 1 will launch in american and other big countries in europe. That all that matter. Japan and other small countries did not contribute much to the 360 success.

@ -Mezzo-
6.PS+ - MS has the same feautres plus more in xbl gold. The only thing they're lacking is free games. So for certain people, i guess this could be a good reason but for me. I don't care.

7.inFamos: Second Son - I agree with you here. This game looks amazing.

8.Killzone: Shadow Fall - Meh

@ Crazy
Free Games Day one with PS+ (DriveClub) - I already addressed this

10. Never had a used game restriction so there wont' be one later on.(with those other guys who knows) - The xbox 1 will allow used games. Period. They are not going to reverse their decision 2 years after launch. That would open them up for a lawsuit.

11. No power Brick, so easy to carry to friends house. - Who moves their console around. Second, putting your 360 in a bag or car is not a troublesome process. The brick hardly get in the way.

12. You can buy an extra controller with the money you saved on your $399 console (or camera if you choose too, It's not forced on you) I rather have the camera forced onto every system. That would allow it to get more support. That a fact.

13. Mic included with every system. - The kinect has a built in mic...

14. Hard drive is upgradable. - The xbox one comes with a 500GB hard drive. That alot of storage and if that enough. You can just buy an external harddrive which is very cheap and very easy to install. So what is your point?

15. Really, do I really need to keep going... LoL Your reasons so far has been horrible so for your sake. Don't keep going. You're just embarrassing yourself.

@mika

Considering all your other counter arguments are practically useless, i will address the one that irritated me the most.
Forced camera- having a forced camera on each system is not good, as in, at all. It increases the price for people that don't want a camera, so hardcore gamers are forced to pay 100$/£80 more for something that will not be used.
Also saying it means it will get more support because all Xbox One owners have one is not completely true. Most developers that want to release games for larger audiences will be pushed away from kinect as the may see that most gamers won't use the features, the only people that will develop for it will be 1st party developers payed by microsoft.

@Nick309

Or just get a PC graphics card and PS4. Xbox One exclusives, for the most part, are still on the PC. So.

@LogicWins
1. Glad someone remembers the OS thing. Though I honestly didn't know anyone who used it or even knew of it so it was funny how 'big a deal' that seemed to be online. Still, Sony's track record isn't a shining beacon of divinity. Regardless you have to admit their current approach has been phenomenally better than the rest.

2. In almost every way technologically speaking it IS superior. That isn't personal opinion, its just facts. But the PS3 was also superior on that note so clearly superior tech does not guarantee superior sales. 360, for a great example, shipped out with a horrible RROD rate. Yet people kept coming back and getting new ones. Clearly quality and superior hardware doesn't matter. But still, from a factual standpoint PS4 is superior.

3. Are you crazy? How can anyone debate the price being cheaper on PS4? I mean honestly? Do you hear yourself? It's not really cheaper if you factor in the price of a Playstation Eye and a game? That is the craziest thing I've ever heard. You're basically saying the console isn't cheaper if you buy a bunch of optional stuff with it.

Just because the Xbox One cannot function without its camera doesn't mean you should consider the Playstation Eye to be a mandatory purchase. Even if it was you'd still be able to afford a game. So even if your world it would still be the cheaper console because for the same price you could afford to get a game to go with it.

@Mika
I take back what I said about Logic. THAT'S the craziest thing I've ever heard.

You're both insane.

LOGICWINS1755d ago

"In almost every way technologically speaking it IS superior."

Maria didn't say "technologically speaking". That changes the argument.

Limegreen1755d ago

@-MIKA-

You said
2.Better hardware - Debatable. Xbox cloud service could change things.

PS4 has better hardware and "no" that's not debatable. Hardware cannot be changed again until next Xbox.

Cloud service is not hardware and can be improved at any time. PS4 has Gaikai

USA0071755d ago

I feel reasons 4 and 10 are irrelevant and reason 12 is the same as reason 1

Mystogan1755d ago

So sad. None of these "reasons" have anything that add to the gaming experience.

Only PS4 fanboys fail to see that Sony did not do anything to add to the gaming experience except for self publishing.

PigPen1755d ago

6.Still has preorder consoles in stock.
7.Has the worst controller out of the three.
8.Console is ugly looking.
9.Junk status rating can play a big part in near future.
10.Pay to play online.
11.No money in bank means limited to exclusives.
12.A known fact they will rather just like to copy.
13.No external Hard Drive support.
14.No casual support
15.No free game (Nintendo Land,Killer Instinct)

I only needed one.
Playstation.

ironwolf1755d ago

I haven't bought ANYTHING made by Sony since their Root Kit episode. Won't be starting now.

friedricr1755d ago

ok. here is a cookie. move along.

PigPen1755d ago

He has every right to express the way he feel. You should move along.

The_Truth_24_71755d ago

The only reason needed, it's better than a high end pc.

S2Killinit1755d ago

How about because it will give you the best gaming experience if previous generations are any indication.
