Lol what's with this Maria troll.

OT: Like I said before, only thing we get out of Xbox vs PS4 polls is which side has the most fanboys.

@georgeennoob Lol Deslusional xbox fanboy
Yes. All the poll that has taken place in multiple non gaming site and etc.

All those votes must be fanboys. According to you, world must be made of fanboys.

And all the fanboys are magically against Xbox.

You claim Sony fans have taken over N4G, the internet, society and I assume you are not above suggesting they are the string-pullers for the governments of the world.

If you had used your tiny brain for even a second, you would realize why Sony has so many fans, and why you seem to see them everywhere. I won't bother explaining it to you, if you don't know by now, nothing short of a diamond drill is going to get this unbelievably obvious information through your thick skull. May I suggest laying off the tin foil hats for a while, it might help.
The_Con-Sept  +   782d ago
The reason why we hate the Xbox one now is due to the fact that the "cloud" is required to enjoy single player games. You want to know what I think about the cloud? It is another pay to play service for offline games.

Just like this vid expresses.

n4rc  +   782d ago
Preorder sales tell another story..

Being there is a healthy market for it at its current price.. So only 20% at $100 cheaper is waaay off..

So yea.. It points to a bias in the voters

The question should have been "would ps4 buyers switch if it were the same price"

Then I would agree with the results
inveni0  +   782d ago
I would agree that the polls don't matter much, but the sources...they're so varied that each poll is starting to shake hands with the others, and I think we really might be seeing an accurate layout. I'm not saying it's 80/20, but it's certainly not 50/50, and that's a problem for two consoles launching within mere weeks of each other. I really think Microsoft is going to have to market to the casual masses and hope they'll shell out the dough. If Microsoft had made Halo 5 (or whatever it is) a launch title, they might not have to worry about their launch. But they didn't. And I think it'll give them a rocky start. I can get a PS4 and two games for what just the One will cost me. Or a PS4, extra controller and a game. Or the PS4, PSEYE and a game.

The value is just better.

Who's asking anyone to wait now? MS fans did say wait for E3, and look what happened, a dozen hardcore exclusives announced. Xbox One line-up looks stronger than Sony's hands down in both quantity and quality, so I don't understand who your comment is referring to.

I don't think a bunch of 5-10 second trailers from mediocre/no name developers means quality kiddo. Which was what the majority of MS showed at their event was. lol

... And having less overall 1st party exclusives (20>15), less indie exclusives, and less F2P PC/Console exclusives don't mean quantity either. LMFAO!

Sony studios > MS studios

Nice try though. XD

lmao at @ georgeenoob, there was no quality shown at e3 from MS they showed trailers and some games running on a pc, and if the games where not running on OP pcs (compared to xbone specs that is) why do the screen caps of titanfall look like 360 quality, what did they do to the game to make the textures and graphics go down hill since e3?.

some will like ps4 like i do and will buy it and that's fine and others will buy xbox one and that's fine too

than there is a big group of gamers that will buy both

why do we need to hate on one to make our self feel good? i can tell you now both ps4 and xbox one will be quite successful and will go on to sell 60 plus million consoles.

Competition between sony and ms will mean better supported consoles so let's not hate on one. Because of sony MS had to take back a lot of their policies so competition is a good thing

I see comments like ps4 is 10 times more powerful or xbox one uses better cloud service who the heck cares? 95% of 3rd party games will look and play the same on both consoles so its only 1st and 2nd party studios that will actually take advantage of the real power of features of a system

why can't we get along as a gaming community? i bet you something if we take the fanboys out, 80% of gamers are neutral who will support the right product/content. But its the other 20% that shout the loudest so publishers think its the majority

fanboys waste so much time of gaming sites trolling when do they actually play some of the awesome games?

You sound so ignorant. Im pretty sure the same would be happening if psn was more robust like XBL and if sony had a community team to deal with psn users. Second, you must have been hacking or said something extremely inappropriate in order to get banned. MS doesn't just ban random users.

If sony adds a report a user feature in the PS4. Trust me, there would be alot more bans happening.

PSN hasn't been quite since before the first price drop. Once it hit $399, the flood gates opened and all the trolls showed up. Prior to that, things were nice and peaceful with friendly folks in MAG or Resistance...

So I figure since the thing is $399 out the gate, all the riff raff will be present after a few months...
KillrateOmega  +   782d ago
Eh, they're a fairly effective way to guage current hype and consumer interest.

Yes, they may likely be dominated fanboys from both sides, but those same fanboys are nearly guaranteed to be early adopters (alongside anyone with a great passion for gaming; i.e., core gamers).

Fanboys and early adopters also function nicely as free and willing outlets of propaganda via Twitter, Facebook, and/or general word of mouth. When casuals start to decide on their purchases, a big factor in making their decision will be which console more of their friends are on. If all of their gaming friends are on one console, they'll likely choose that console.

And also guess what? Let's all have pop quiz. What Nation and sales area is the biggest selling place on this World?

I'll give you a hint... initials are U, S and A.

I'll take owning the biggest market in the World any day. Ya... World Wide is better... but that World Wide is made of the biggest market on the planet. It's good to be the most popular in the best place in the world for your stuff to sell and be hot/popular.

you do know the ps4 will have way more consoles available like 3 and 4 times as much as xbox one. not only this the ps4 will release first. on top of that the ps4 is cheaper and has free games you can play day one right out of the box. everyones first next gen console should be a ps4 if they like online multiplayer or an alive user base gaming community.

think of myspace when facebook came along it got destroyed. facebook had a slow start aka ps3 but with the ps4 its nail in the coffin time everyone.gif is gonna be gaming on the ps4. you have to be an idiot to get an xbox one for any reason at this point.

We all know the xbox is going to sell to more than 20% of the fan base. I'm no xbox fan but I'm not deluded either. These polls may be acurate in that ps4 seems more popular right now but I don't think they are accurate by how much. However it would be kinda chuckle worthy if it was as bad as polls are saying for xbox one
dedicatedtogamers  +   782d ago
20% of the market wouldn't be that much of a decrease for the Xbox brand.

Assuming the gaming market does not increase AT ALL, 20% of the current market is still about 60 million units sold.

The Xbox 360 currently holds about 29% of the market. Not that much of a decrease, as you can see.
ps3_pwns  +   782d ago
keep thinking that but is it smart to get a console that's gonna be selling far less? consoles that sale less and don't have the hype will not have tons of people to play against online and xbox one doesn't have headset either. its basically gonna be wii u online lol. with 1-2 thousand people maximum playing games online lol.

ps4 is the way to go. get that first as its the smart choice. get the xbox one after the price drop or after people start buying it. which will be after a price drop and 6+ months down the line. you don't want the wii u situation twice do you?
kingdip90  +   782d ago
Personally I kinda do want the wii u situatuin with the xbox one. It would be grand if all the devs work with just the ps4 architecture in mind that would mean games wouldn't need to be scaled back for xbox one. But thats a dream, like I said xbone has to many blind fans for that to ever be a reality. Its going to sell many systems however much you or I may not want it to

Yeah this is totally expected. Aside from the few holdouts, and the hardcore MS supporters here at N4G, all gamers look at both products and see the better machine is PS4.

XO could be priced at $349.99 and still get crushed by PS4.
The machine is vastly inferior and playing around with prices or clouds doesn't negate that fact.

Hands down, across the board, better games, better price, better hardware, better online service, better cloud, better community, better services, remote play, better studios, better support, and better controller.

PS4 is probably going to outsell the XO by a ratio of 20:1 when all is said and done.

It is actually a proven fact the average gamer age for ps3 is higher than the 360, so i guess you are completely wrong. The reason xbone keeps losing polls is simple, ppl want the ps4 more in general, its not hard to believe, sony are the better company and have a cheaper console with more power and a larger and more diverse line up of games. Only a fool would get the xbone first if they where to buy both and only a brain dead retard would only get an xbone.
