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. (PS4, Xbox 360)

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?

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-akaB  +   560d 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

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
nukeitall  +   560d 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-akaB  +   560d ago
Wich is why i said it's different . But they arent new at games with creating tools that's all
solidt12  +   560d 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.
Gildarts  +   560d 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.
s8anicslayer  +   560d 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!

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.

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."
SegaSaturn669  +   560d 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.

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!

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.
HateFanboys  +   560d 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

@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.
timotim  +   560d ago
When it comes to diversity, X1 takes the cake hands down thus far! KI (fighter), Forza 5 (racer), Quantum Break (3rd person action/adventure), DR3 (Zombie Sandbox), Titan Fall (FP Multiplayer), Project Spark (multiple genres and creativity) Ryse (Action combat), Kinect Sports (casual), Overdrive Sunset (teambased weirdness), Halo 2014 (FPS). X1 has displayed a better level of diversity thus far, but unlike generations passed, MS is investing in new gaming Studios to keep pumping out titles. With Xbox 360 you started to see MS getting rid of studios that were under their belt for years...this is a good step in the right direction. And Uncharted is linear too, that doesn't mean its not a good game. And DH has Ken Lobbs helping them...he knows fighters dude.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Completely disagree with you there I'm afraid.

Double helix were set up to work on licensed games. We all know how bad those usually end up. They have to knock 'em out quick.

This time they are working on a game that they are passionate about, and they have gys who have worked on Skullgirls and Streetfighter.

I am confident that this game will rock. Anyone who has followed it's development can see that DH are not f**king about here.
CalamityCB  +   560d ago
What if I told you, believe it or not. Game companies can evolve to make brilliant games even though they had some stinkers in the past.

Have faith, if Microsoft didn't know DH were able to make a fighting game at a high level they wouldn't have let them lay a finger in KI and from what I've seen so far DH has nailed it. Microsoft seem to be shaping a good studio from Double Helix. Plus I heard Double Helix pretty much begged to make this game which is only a good thing if a game company is this passionate.

Next to nothing is known about the game except the usual smoke and mirrors MS presents. You don't know what is actually involved in making a level. You don't know the difference between playing it with the console, and playing it with a Surface tablet. You don't even know when the game will be out.

To be fair, I'm not bashing you. I'm just commenting on the irony of the whole thing. And in all honesty, you've gotta admit that the PS fans on N4G can be a pretty nasty bunch in comparison to the Xbox fans. Both sides definitely have their jerks but if you really pay attention to the forums here, those PS4 kids can be outright offensive.

See, I'm planning on getting both systems but I lean more towards Xbox. I'll be getting the Xbox One first and the PS4 later, when they show something to get me hyped up for it because in all honesty, I haven't seen anything on their end to make me want the system yet. I'm sure that in time, they'll start breaking out the big guns but right now, I have yet to be impressed by what they're offering. As far as games go, I honestly feel like the Xbox One has shown some awesome looking stuff.

I'm not really focusing on any games. It's a struggle to remember a launch lineup that is actually worth remembering. We see the occasional game that ignites a series, but the original is usually eclipsed as developers get used to the new console. The real big guns are usually saved for a larger install base. Much focus by Microsoft and Sony will be on the current gen as early adopters pick up the new systems and need less incentive to buy.

I have a feeling what we will hear from both Comicon and Gamescom is that both consoles and games on the consoles are great ...and the truth is nobody is going to feel like they lose out regardless of system bought this coming generation.

edit: LOL...I just laugh at N4G sometimes. Extreme defense forces for both just cant take you saying something nice about both consoles...you MUST pick a side! Fine.. let me edit: I get the feeling what we will hear from both Comicon and Gamescom is that both consoles suck and you should just buy a pc! Hows that? LOL...seriously...you $399 or $499 purchase wont be wasted regardless of what the trolls say.

....pretty ironic statement considering you were defending MS use of DRM a few months ago. Nothing you say now is gona change you being an MS shill.

So I say I dont have issues with DRM makes me a shill now? Brilliant.

My bad, didn't realize gamers didnt like MMOs with a mature player base.

It's not that, it's just that we want to see new games being pushed, not console ports. I can vouch for that since I've just finished playing a game of planetside 2 lol.

Going by how Sony shows support for their consoles, I'd say it's pretty safe to assume that when it comes to returning IP and new IPs, we have nothing to worry about.

People are acting like they forget this.
Jeff257  +   559d ago
It's not that people forget it. Just some people choose to ignore it and act like Sony never supports gamers. Sometimes I feel like we are stuck in 2007 when people were saying PS3 has no games. Now it is 2013 and they are saying PS4 has no games. What they need to remember is that MS always starts out great on each of their systems. But then later on the exclusives really dry up until they rely on only a few franchises. Then they spend their money on trying to push stuff that people just don't want.

Fresh and innovative ips vs disappointing,bland games plus xbox staff are looking at the ps4 quite a lot,glad sony is showing the games that need more hype and popularity octo dad will rule all,it's an exclusive like titanfall which are coming on pc.gotta give credit for Sony's love for indies
Major_Glitch  +   560d ago
Wish I could go this year. First off, it's comic-con! Second, I'd love to get my hands on both consoles. I'm getting the PS4 at launch, but I wouldn't mind giving the x1 a test drive.
JimCom95  +   560d ago
Sony owns a lot more studios then microsoft, sure right now the quantity of exclusives is more for X1 then ps4. games like ryse and deadrising 3 definably have me a little jealous since I do plan to purchase the ps4 first but I see a better longterm potential for exclusives on the ps4. Look back at this generation, the ps3 started off slow in terms of exclusives and then picked up and overtook microsoft in quantity and in my opinion the quality of the exclusives.
adorie  +   559d ago
Sony consolidated their studios, so they in fact have less studios. MS has the most, but a great deal of those studios focus on Kinect...

Battle Arena Toshiden (most of you don´t know it..) > KI
Soul Edge > KI
Bushido Blade > KI

Ryse,Forza,Titanfall and KI,that is a pretty crappy line up for a more expensive and big ass console with the crappy Kinect to boot. You must be joking thinking I would buy a console that can activate DRM as easily as they could take it away with another update.Talking about launch,who the hell would buy one on launch when the X360 had such a horrible reputation for melting DVDS and the console itself.
Dlacy13g  +   560d ago
If you are rambling just to ramble off some Xbox hate at least get your trolling in proper order...

I am pretty sure that this is how this kind of post should read: Here are X,Y & Z Xbox games that I think suck...here are my X,Y & Z PS4 games that I think rule... drop a note about why you hate MS and and then rant about how you think Sony loves you. Make sure NOT to mention anything about PC and ignore Nintendo as well. Then your post would be complete.
tiremfej  +   560d ago
You are blind. You can't seriously believe that these games are bad, to think an Indie title for the PS4 is better than any of those...wow. Maybe I need glasses then.
LNDCalling  +   560d ago
I don't get this whole 'launch drought' thing, 1) This is a next gen launch we're talking about and 2) this is pretty much the best (for both consoles) launch line up I can remember and I firmly believe we will see more games before launch day is upon us (at GC / TGS).

All in I'm pretty excited for next gen!
Caffo01  +   560d ago
everyone praising KI.. did you already forget about the only character free in the game? i don't think it'll be so fun when 90% of the time you'll be facing Jago.

Dlacy13g  +   560d ago
Did you forget you can play the entire game as that one character? If you decide you want more then you can buy another character....or buy the game outright and unlock everything. No different really then what Sony is doing with Drive Club just a different genre. Cars and tracks will be held back from the free to play version and you can buy and unlock more if you want.
Caffo01  +   560d ago
yet 90% of the time you'll be facing Jago playing online (and don't tell me you'd prefer offline) even if you buy every character in the game.
Drive Club is a different story, Sony didn't lock every car and track letting you play only on 1 track with 1 car.

Caffo01, your link doesn't say anything about 90% of the time you will be facing Jago...that's your assumption, while I assume since its free almost everyone will try out Jago offline but if they like the game the vast majority will definitely at least buy 1 or 2 more characters to play with if they indeed are going to continue playing online.
Caffo01  +   560d ago
i agree on the vast majority of players who like the game buying 1 or 2 characters, but in the first year there will be a lot of X1 new adopters and, being KI a new free-to-play title, everyone will try it, and not only offline like you said. Maybe i exaggerated on the 90%, but i think a good 40% - 50% will play as Jago.

That is an old article.

The trailer shows 3 characters


If you watch the EVO 2013 video you will see Glacius as a playable character


Only an idiot would believe that only 1 character would be available at launch.

KI3 will release FREE with 3 characters to choose from.
Caffo01  +   560d ago
Good luck finding a fighting game trailer where there's only 1 character standing there waiting for an opponent lol

They show you the entire game, not only the free parts <.<
FlunkinMonkey  +   560d ago
ha you buffoons.. You'll be eating humble pie (or denial pie) when Sony exclusives get 4 our of 5 Game of the year awards like this generation..

MS have spunked 13 out of 15 of their exclusive games announced, while Sony have many more to announce.

Killer Instinct looks weak as fack! Re-hashed Street Fighter 4 clone with HORRIBLE character models, made by a company with an atrocious track record..

You guys try to hard, and it's easy for you when this article forgets to mention KZ:SF which is miles better than Ryse (awful QTE, failed Kinect launch title) and Killer Instinct (enough has been said).

You must still really be reeling from the fact that MS completely abandoned their consumer fanbase 2 generations in a row, failing to put out any decent exclusives into the later stages of their consoles lifespan.. The Last of Us will be a better game than anything XBONE is releasing in the first year..

And for anyone getting a woody harrellson over Titanfall...Planetside 2 > Titanfall ANYDAY.

I was a fighter fan when KI was out originally. I didn't like it then and couldn't care less now. It was never a top game. Seriously.....never .
To slag off Knack for being old school and not next Gen but praise KI is also ludicrous
theWB27  +   560d ago
Killer Instinct wasn't a top game to who? I distinctly remember it racking up plenty of coin back in the ol arcade days. There were lines waiting to play that game.

Is it as mainstream as Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter..no. But it is as legit a fighter as was any of the other top games back then. It's long hiatus seems to have softened peoples' memories.

Knack is a strange one because, so far, it's a linear niche game on a powerful system such as the PS4 made by the face of the system. I think people were just expecting more.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   560d ago
Fact. Regardless of what Xbox fanboys think Sony has always trumped them in the exclusive category and this gen will be no different.

Microsoft has what 3 first party studios lol?

Sony has over 10

Anyway you try to spin it, just like the last 2 gens Sony will one up Microsoft its as simple as that.

Try to argue it with actual proof try just try. Because this is exactly what Xbox fanboys will
Come up with

Well we got halo..........and gears........and Alan wake and fable and forza..... Like omg congrats only 2 of those series actually get high acclaim.

Microsoft actually have 22 first party studios all together and quite a large amount of third party studios.
Please remove the fanboy rod outwards from the butt.

Should of phrased what I said better.

Microsoft only has what like 3 first party studios that make actual high rated, high alclaim games lol........
buttclown  +   560d ago
As soon as you said fact first, it instantly removed any actual fact from your comment.

If I stop to think about the PS3 games I have played that are better than X360 and/or PC then I can maybe think of 5 that I would say or as good or better. Again, to clarify, this is my own personal taste.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   560d ago
Well Sony does trump Microsoft in terms of exclusives so it was fact :P
forsaken1304  +   560d ago
I def like the variety of the ps4 games i think knack looks great i think ppl underestimate the graphics for it and the gameplay looks like it could be good. Project spark looked decent but it might not even be a game microsoft always shows off those tech demos and they become nothing. I think people keep forgetting Sony showed off a project spark style game too media molocule showed off the game where you can create anything awhole world or people and things i trust the guys who gave us little big planet over the guys who made spark but aren't sure wth it is lol.
PiperMCFierceson  +   560d ago
People don't seem to understand that in order to sell a game you need promotion so I don't understand why sony would showcase established IPS so of course its a good idea to show off knack n octodad in one of the worlds biggest gaming conferences.

I personally am still not hyped for Killer Instinct... they f**ked up with the character designs too much for me. Grant it's a reboot, but it drifted in enough minor directions to make me lose interest! and it was the one game I was considering a One for! I will always have fonder memories of the franchise in its prime when I was plugging quarters into arcades on a nightly basis. I feel the majority of people hyped for the reboot didn't grow with the franchise the way I did!
adorie  +   559d ago
Yeah, I'd be fine with everything else for KI, but the character designs are crap reminiscent of Street Fighter 4, which I abhor.
thetruthx1  +   560d ago
You Sony fans are in denial. Xbox one has the better games already ttand I'm betting they'll have the best games next gen. Killzone looks like Crysis and Knack looks like a dreamcast game lol

unicron7  +   560d ago
Crysis looks beautiful...and Knack actually looks good if you pay attention to the characters and the environments when people play it...so I don't see your point. Subtle greatness.

Keep hating on superior hardware at a lower price...from a company that has had you, the gamer, in mind since day one. They are not the ones that tried to lie to you and take your rights away as a consumer. But I guess it's okay to overlook that though...cuz you know..."Killer Instinct brah!"

At launch, may the best console win. You also forgot to mention other AAA games stated for release on the PS4 platform(I'm sure intentional). Pot. Kettle. Black. Etc.
Silly gameAr  +   560d ago
Well, we all know MS is a strong starter, but a weak finisher. You would be in denial if you ignored that too. Just look at the 360.

You guys want to talk about games all of a sudden when it's been a gaming drought on 360 for the past couple of years. Meanwhile, the PS3 is still killing it. The PS4 won't be any different. As for the X1? Well, we'll just have to see. Hopefully MS takes games more seriously.
