The Xbox One And PlayStation 4 Face-Off On The Comic-Con Show Floor

In this corner, we have Microsoft's Xbox One, with games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Killer Instinct. In the same corner, we've got the PlayStation 4 with Driveclub, Knack and Octodad: Dadliest Catch. The first public hands-on for both upcoming consoles is underway.

The story is too old to be commented.

Wait until Gamescon and then try this comparison. It's called "Diversity" and that's what Sony has been doing. Plus what makes you think any one of those games have an edge over another? Ryse has been called linear by some sites who previewed the game and then we have Double Helix who make crappy games and yet you mock Sony's lineup?

Colzer011767d ago

I don't see any games in Sony that look like MS 'Project Spark'. Hell, MS even got their own fighting game now, not a smash bro rip-off, if you know what I mean

Baka-akaB1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

How would you know ? Project spark isnt at launch , and sony already did that kind of stuff , albeit different with Little big planet and two karting games ...

Killer instinct ? Sure you can brag about it . It's a cool addition for those who still likes the franchise and newcomers alike , and the more fighting games the better ... i'm just not in frenzy over it , and want more stuff like the next guilty gear to be announced already on any of the two platforms

Kanzes1767d ago

Project Spark and Little Big Planet is a two different game.

Project Spark is an open-world digital canvas that enables anyone to build, play, and share whatever they can imagine and create their own worlds an stories

That's what I heard though, I'm not saying which is the best. I'm just saying it's totally different

nukeitall1767d ago


The feedback has been very positive with regards to Killer Instinct. Why would you judge the developer and not the game?

Keep in mind that good developers make crappy games every now and then too.

It swings both ways. Judge the game, not the developer.

That said, why is Sony showing Knack and Octodad? Knack looks awefully generic, and Octodad, well what can you say.

Sony has better titles like KZ and Infamous. They should have demoed that.

MS should have demoed a Kinect experience, and Titanfalls, but Ryse and KI are both good choices.

Baka-akaB1767d ago

Wich is why i said it's different . But they arent new at games with creating tools that's all

solidt121767d ago

From what we know so far Project Spark is not coming out anytime soon so there is no point in anyone arguing about it. We can only speculate since we have not played the game if it will be great are not. Let's wait until we play the games then see who has the better games. If you are going to comic-con i'm jealous.

Gildarts1767d ago

Both have very diverse titles. both have their shooters and adventure games.

Microsoft does have its own fighter now. but Sony has their own MMO. Until fable 4 at least.

s8anicslayer1767d ago

@nukeitall Because history has shown us that crappy studios make crappy games! Can KI be a great game? Of course it can I never said it was going to be bad, I was replying to the guy above me who seems very sure based on just opinion that Ryse and KI were killer apps! I myself will have both consoles and I will let the gameplay speak for itself rather then trolling nonsense about who's got the bigger endowment!

WrAiTh Sp3cTr31767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Naughty Dogs game few of their fans know about, lol...

Edit: People were flocking more so to Sony's booth by what the article is saying. Lol, why? Only thing I could imagine is brand loyalty...dang.

blackmanone1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Really, wraith, that's the only reason you can imagine? /blind.

SuperLupe1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

I wouldn't mind standing in line to play Ryse at least just to see true next gen graphics and KI ... just to hear the ULTRAAAAA COMMBOOOOOOOOO live lol.

Maybe I would had the patience to try Driveclub, not too sure though.

S2Killinit1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Just so everyone knows, project spark was not a game. It was a tech demo. I don't know why people bring it up in game discussions.
PS: I think the past generations have clearly demonstrated that Playstation had the best and most varied game library with the longest support for each console generation. Its just fact no point arguing about that. Now if there is a particular game that you MUST have, you can buy whatever console you please. Or if non gaming capabilities are your thing then again, you are free to spend your money however you please. But to argue that somehow project spark, or games like Ryse demonstrate gaming superiority on Xbox then you are sadly mistaken. Each console has its own benefits, PS4's strength is games and to not acknowledge this is betraying the hobby to which most of us on this site claim membership. Sony has delivered the games all the way to the end and beyond each console generation and we must give credit where credit is due.

Caffo011767d ago

again with "smash bro rip-off"?Did you even read the reviews?
from IGN:

"I know it'll be hard for some skeptics to believe, but PlayStation All-Stars is its own game, and it even happens to do some things better than what inspired it."

SegaSaturn6691767d ago


As a technical fighter, PS All Stars was strengthened by tighter controls, and more technical combat.

Brawl felt like a novelty, and while I like Melee best, All Stars really felt better than Brawl. I hope the new Smash Brothers is a step forward.

dantesparda1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

I cant believe people think KI is going to be good!? First of all its made by a C, D, F team and second of all, its a free to play game! it only comes with Jago, then you have to pick and choice whatever else you'd like. That's bullsh!t, how would MS fanboy feels if Halo or Gears was a la carte? (free to play). If it was all chopped up into stages and everytime you wanted the next stage you had to pay? And how much would the whole game be worth?

Look I don't mind if they make new franchises f2p, but not our old tried and true franchises

Oh, who am I kidding, MS fanboys would argue that Halo being f2p is even better,... pathetic!

strifeblade1767d ago

whats wrong with linear? we have been making linear games through out videogame history. Some of the best games out there are linear lol. Have you seen the recent killer instinct trailers? the game is looking better and better and will be huge when it comes out. 1080p @60fps is awesome as well as people who have played the game praised it and saw graphical effects never before seen in a fighter. Go hate somewhere else- i am surprised how sony fanboys think they can criticize killer instinct when knack looks like a ps3 game lol.

HateFanboys1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

So what if its 1080p/60 fps, all fighting games are 60 fps these days, tekken on ps3 is 1080/60fps, and i agree with dantesparda, f2p games blow. And KI looks like a XBLA/PSN game to me, not a triple AAA game. But fanboys will be fanboys, and blindly and stupidly say otherwise. So fan on, fannies. And dont X1 fanboys always b1tch about quicktime events? and isnt Ryse full of them? hmm, i love the hypocrisy, it is strong with the fanboys

Jaces1767d ago


You just described LBP....the only difference is that LBP is a side scroller and Spark is open world/sandbox.

The_Con-Sept1767d ago

@nukeitall: Why judge a double helix game so absurdly you ask? Instead of writing a novel about this publisher I'd much rather sum it up in a nut shell.

What LJN from the SNES era meant to gamers is what Double Helix means to me today.

If you like Killer Instinct then GOOD FOR YOU. The rest of n4g don't really care for it. Neither did the people at EVO 2013. And neither do I.

Keep Killer Instinct XboxOne only as long as Double Helix doesn't touch the PS4.

I saw the demo and it looks good so far, but it is not enough for me to say yes too. Sorry but they got xboned.

To be fair none of the games are part of the A list stuff (which is weird) but I am starting to like the look of this Octodad thing

LaChance1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Talk for Sony.

People mad looking forward to KI and say what you want for the gameplay but Ryse is some serious eye candy and has the AAA feel.

Dont try to put games like Knack and Octodad in the same bag as KI and Ryse please.

malokevi1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )


Was that really necessary? He was stating an opinion, not favoring any one game over another...

So what if he likes the look of Octodad?

I'm more excited for XB1 games myself, but its that sort of childish, confrontational approach that plagues this site.

Angeljuice1767d ago


Ryse and Killer Instinct are so awesome that more people are interested in Knack and Octodad?

If they are so poor, why are Sony's games pulling the crowds?

1Victor1767d ago

@ laChance right again K.I is a sad time for fighting game fans seeing a beloved franchise reduced to a pay to play money grab. congratulations to Microsoft you improved on Capcom greed and money grab on fighting games. :'("""" ;"

Eyecandy doesn't sell games, gameplay does. Unless you enjoy polished garbage, then go for it.

LOL Octodad is a really weird game, Knack's gameplay looks awful and bland, Driveclub is the only decent title in there

Garbanjo0011767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

"LOL Octodad is a really weird game, Knack's gameplay looks awful and bland, Driveclub is the only decent title in there"

I don't think you have an original bone in your body. Octodad looks fun, and different. It's just random. The whole line up of indie games looks the same way, Secret Ponchos looks cool too. Galak-Z looks awesome.

The point is I haven't seen a single indie label game come out from XBox. . . Period, not at E3, nada. Their "Arcade" games like Geometry Wars are fun, but Sony has them beat on originality, diversity and price. There is a slew of games that I want from Sony and like 3 from XBox that I want.

How can you say that Knack doesn't look cool? You must be 12 and don't remember where video games come from. I think that Knack looks awesome, it might be a little childish but that's why grown men play video games . . . NOT TO BE AN ADULT.

Drive Club looks good, the graphics are awesome and all that but that's not even what I am interested in. I am interested in all of it. And above you argued MS "Project Spark." The only reason that game looks cool is because you can do what you want with it. It ripped off little big planet, and the only way that you would have content in that game is because of the people creating it. You are still limited by that fact.

Kanzes1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Below is an arcade. And I'm pretty sure MS will take care of this self-publish thing. One of the Lionhead's top guy already said it will happen very soon too.

In Knack's case I agree with with him, it doesn't resemble what 'next-gen' really are. The gameplay is old-school, I like old-school, but I just doesn't see this game is worth a full $60, while I can get a more rich game with the same genre than this game. (especially Indie games)

Well, Gamers grow up with their games too, even Naughty Dogs are making games more and more 'adult' now.

Minato-Namikaze1767d ago

I live on weird games, the more the better. Also go check Mark Cerny's record before you talk about knack.

majiebeast1767d ago

Kanzes you sound like a microsoft mouth piece go be a gamer.

Kanzes1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

^I'm just stating the fact good sir. I love Sony and MS. I'm planning to buy both console. But it seems a lot of people really doesn't really give MS a break. I know they really bad at giving a message, but that doesn't mean the console will be a total failure like many said

GoodnessGreatness1761d ago

Ryse looks like a God of War rip off, Project Spark is inspired by Little Big Planet, Killer Instinct is a rip off. One character available? Do you really think Microsoft can produce better games after what happened with the PS3 and 360.

Geezus1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

@pimpschitz you must have missed MS announcing exclusive indie games like Below , Super Time Force, Max and the Curse of Brotherhood, D4, Lococycle, Project Spark for 360/ X1

Thatguy-3101767d ago

No point of arguing at this point. The xbox one light is slowly dwindling so making fun of the ps4 wont light that spark back and it definitely wont stop the hype surrounding the system. Can't wait for Gamescon !!!

Rockstar_51767d ago

Actually your 57 disagrees win lol

3-4-51767d ago

XB1 games like Sunset Overdrive, Spark, Forza 5 & Titanfall look like really good games.

Outside of that it's a bit iffy.

FamilyGuy1767d ago

The PS3 lineup at ComicCon looks the best actually.
Hands on with Puppeteer, Beyond two souls, Gran Turismo 6 and Diablo 3. Not to mention the vita lineup with Dragon's Crown, Teraway and Killzone Mercenary.

I'm interested in DriveClub but the PS4 lineup isn't the ComicCon highlight for me. A public hands on with the console itself, that new controller an seeing the user interface in person is more interesting to me than the PS4 games they're showing.

noctis_lumia1767d ago

ryse is a gow clone
killer instinct got booed badly
titanfall is coming to pc and later it will come to ps4

like the other guy said wait for gamescom sony will reveal lots of games and hey...dont forget naughty dog,santa monica,lvl 5,media molicule and quantic dreams games...they didnt announced anything yet....

jrbeerman111767d ago

Did killer instinct get booed or did xbox one?

Right now KI, Forza 5, and dead rising 3 are the three games that I'm disappointed to be missing at the moment.

That being said im excited for Killzone, infamous, and the order.

Right now I do not see a commanding lead for either system as far as exclusives go. All arguments are this game and that game sucks from both sides

aceitman1767d ago

I had to laugh at this part where the article says -
you can fit a lot more people into a booth when you aren't demoing a Kinect game. um they are not demoing Kinect games its fortza5 ki and son of ryse . none use Kinect where u need a lot of room.

1767d ago
CynicalMonkey1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Oh shut the F*%# up, truth is regardless of specs, both consoles are extremely worthy and more than capable of playing any game. They both also have great line ups, enough with the trivial specs and game line up comparisons who really bloody cares get over yourself. You write with a sense of pride but you haven't contributed anything, your opinion isn't worth the time you used to write this and just accept that both consoles are amazing, or are you too up Sony ass to accept this. So do me and the internet a favor and keep your half arsed opinions to yourself, whilst i and many others will enjoy both consoles.

It looks ridiculous but strangely I really want to play it

The name alone compels me to buy it!

Chaostar1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Lol it sounds ridiculous but it's a game that a LOT of people are talking about and, as far as consoles go, it's only on PS4. Sony's indie focus will start paying off early for them.

solidt121767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

The popular opinion is that the console war has already been won! We are just waiting on it to be official. I really don't care about the console war crap really though I just want next gen games and hope we have plenty of them.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr31767d ago

Chaostar, lol, that's because you guys hype anything that comes out on the console.

Kanzes1767d ago

Actually, it's not 100% guarantee Octodad is gonna be an PS4 exclusive.

Young Horses has shown demos for the game in the past running on PC with an Xbox 360 controller, and even made a version of the original Octodad using Kinect.

xbox one for sure at comic con, knack really? drive club i could see. but xbox one has more hardcore games there at this specific show at the moment. not to say that has long term impact just this show they should gain more attention that ps4 offerings

Geezus1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

exactly for a console saying its all about the hardcore gamers lead off with something that appeases them like killzone and driveclub not knack and octodad which are kiddy as hell from all indications so far. at least ms is drawing blood doesnt get more hardcore than doing a 100 hit combo on KI while the announcer screams "UlllllTRRRAAAAAAA COMBOOOO" in your face the wholetime and gameplay aside ryse does look pretty as hell and gladiators.

Death1767d ago

Two weeks ago the PS4 was better since it was focused on the hardcore only. The XboxOne and it's Kinect sensor was trying to do too much for too many people when all they want is a hardcore game machine. Last week the PS4 was better since it was aggressively going after indie games and the casual market they cater to. This week the PS4 is better because it is more diverse and not focused on one market only. Can't wait to see what next week brings. I'm leaning towards a big PSeye announcement where they found a way to make it watch over you 24 hours a day and report your behavior to the NSA. Maybe seamless integration with the Vita so you can be followed on the go. Fans will cheer it on and say it's the best thing ever.
