It's been a while actually. Well actually PlayStation wins in the most essential aspects. Price (above all) and design. This is what is more important to average consumer. Personally Xbox as better exclusive launch line up. But then again Playstation has Killzone that being a multi-player game will make people play for longer.
The ps4 has a better launch line up.
titanfall have multiplayer RYSE have multiplayer forza 5 have multiplayer dead rising 3 have multiplayer GET A LIIIIIIIIIFE
Ain't nothing going to crash this HYPE train boys! Choo2,... all aboard!
You should get an avatar of someone who works in gaming.
Dat Price..... I think the price will make the difference this Holiday season. I have 2 PS4's on reserve and one will be ready to ship to one of you poor suckers who didn't reserve any of your own, for a price naturally. I live to serve. lol.
Exactly... Das price. PS4 it is... my wallet is ready.
With the PS4 camera.. My body is ready
laugh now,cry later is how the saying goes.back in 2006 if you were sony fan on this site the xbox fanboys would have tar&feathered you but now the tables turn.it's been a long time coming but change gone come.some of the older members on this site knew this would happen(me included) but that jump the 360 had give them the big head.now look at the situation,ps3 passed the 360,ps4 is more popular then the x1 and N4G is sony headquarters.
People still telling this lie. This site was Sony headquarters in 2006 same as it is now. 6 Sony Soldiers for every 1 Xbox fan in every Microsoft article.
Lol. "Sony soldiers" "Xbox fans" No bias here, right?
@grownfolks Totally agree with you, I used to lurk this site back then b4 I became a member and it was not like Deebo and others are trying to put it. This site has ALWAYS been a Sony fans stomping ground, the fans of both consoles was just a little more even back then. Now, you cannot sneeze a good word about Microsoft without being crucified by the masses. Not choosing sides but come on guys lets be real about the situation.
I'll bite MELMAN26 "This site has ALWAYS been a Sony fans stomping ground, the fans of both consoles was just a little more even back then. Now, you cannot sneeze a good word about Microsoft without being crucified by the masses." You completely contradict yourself, how can you say that this site was Sony stomping grounds, then in the same sentence you assert that "fans of both consoles was just a little more even back then"? So, you are basically saying that it was a level playing field? I don't get your point. Overall, I believe that MS has done their reputation a disservice, and CONSUMERS reacted in kind and supported Sony. There is really no one they need to blame but themselves. I really don't believe there is a conspiracy, I just think that there are more people that see the value in Sony's product over MS. And as has been stated before, the price point, as well as the MS shenanigans haven't served to help that situation for MS either.
@Hammad I readily admit I favor Xbox gaming. Go find me hopping in Sony articles making up shit & bashing it just for the sake of bashing. I have no problem pointing out the hypocritical crap Microsoft gets bashed for here daily, that all of a sudden is no problem if it's Sony. The ram rumor is a perfect example. 5 gigs was so horrible for Xbox, but when it was thought it might be 5 for PS4, then it's more than enough. This site has been pro Sony from the day I set foot here, but people keep up this BS "used to be a MS site" lie. Compare how many people that favor MS that have more than 5 bubbles vs those who favor Sony.
LOL this place was xbox fan heaven even in 2007 when i joined how could it have been sony land since 2006? I can go back to my history and still see all the same xbone fans there talking crap all day like POG and The mart, this place was full of xbone tards for ages, now the tides have changed and ps4 will easily dominate the world for gaming its already started.
I never used to post much on this site but I lurked around here when the ps3 was released and this site was just nothing but Sony bashing. I was a playstation employee at the time(nothing important) and found it really disheartening to read it all. Sony is doomed!! Etc Ps3 will never catch the 360 etc It wasnt just the articles, but the comments were all negative towards Sony I love that Sony has turned it around.
False! During the PS3's first year release, that's when I came snooping around, N4G was nothing but PS3 sucks, Xbox360 Forevaz.. I don't want to hear about how N4G is Sony's stomping ground, they were the ones getting stomped on and now it seems a bit justified that M$ failed and tried to gain ground. I'm completely fine with how this rollercoaster has panned out
Grown Folks, you lie, first off, This site was called something else in 2005-2006. The war was extremely even and heat until the PS3 got it's price announced then it became a total waste land. The comments was ran by people like the mart, Power Of Green, Firstknight basin and various others who bashed the PS3's high prices, called every ps3 game bland and colorless and threw around the popular, "it has no games" and "Sony never shows actual gameplay just CGI trailers" N4G didn't become this till 2007 and by then the shift didn't change to a more balance field until Uncharted Came out and people saw that the PS3 wasn't so doomz, and games were grey bland and colorless. This place is a haven now for Sony fans because the vast majority of changes happened to put the Xbox fans back in place, fact, the 360 stopped getting quality exclusives after 2009 while Sony ramped up their production on them, MS put out more Kinect games which people on here hated and finally, the PS3 overtook MS in market share worldwide dispute selling at a higher cost... And you know what I think... The fans that were subject to the constant bashing deserve to bash the crap out of the Xbox zealot that bashed them.
I remember the days when 360 was king here. Then the RRODs happened. =)
Someone above stated that brand loyalty is stupid. They buy whatever is best. And in their case it's the PS4. Really. The f'g isnt even out yet. How can it be the best? Talk about stupid.
Simple. See what both have to offer that is relative to you and pick the best option. Not rocket science. Just common sense.
So true yo couldn't have said it better.
I'm sure most people saw this coming from 50 miles away
Wait, who submitted this? Oh, it is Maria again. Just another day of news on N4G.
And it's based on Google searches! LOL What if they are googling "I will never buy a PS4 accessory". They count that as a positive PS4 hit. It's okay. I remember this stuff last gen and now look how it all turned out. I got them both pre-ordered as I learned last gen it doesn't pay to be too loyal to just one console.
Wait, who's commenting? Oh, it is No_Limit again. Just another troll on N4G.
ok so maria submit it how that change any thing about the news in that article ?!
For someone supposedly so certain about their position, there's an overwhelming amount of reassurance posts made by them.
Noticed that too huh?
If you don't like Xbox, fine. Why do you need to spend every moment of your day looking for any article you can to find a reason to bash or copy & paste your spec rant? Just buy a PS4 & enjoy it.
Mariah kind of got bullied out of this website. When's the last time you saw her comment on something? She just posts fanboy articles from know on so that nobody can reply to her thus making it easier for her to maintain her deluded and closed state of mind.
I guess the ridiculous number of damage control comments and duplicate accounts out of the Xbox crowd is permissible, though, right?
Never said they don't exist. Still doesn't negate this site being heavily skewed in Sony's direction.
This is for my boy MattyG. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Article seems legit, just take these numbers from amazon UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/... PS4: 3 XBONE: 35 US http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... PS4: 3 XBONE 6
Well I never... It seems that Microsoft will probably lose foothold in the US everrrr so slightly, but not enough to make a big impact. But the UK? DAMN. Europe has always been Sony territory, but UK is looking to be the ones backing Sony a lot more this time around.
Wha??? Mind = blown
the human race is doomed. Nothing will ever stop the fanboys from posting shit comments. Instead of celebrating the bright future of next gen entertainment we got to read shit from analysts. I don't give a flying shit, I'll just be playing the games I want to be playing and that is all. The rest is like debating the color , smell and taste of shit.
um DUH did you even Watch E3?
Now fanboys. Cry and fight over a toy
Xbro troll defense force out in full force and angry, Lmfao!
Good I don't like popular things.
def get an xbone then .
Have it on order thank you cant wait.
At this point I'm not surprise what does X1 does better then PS4 kenect that very few really care 4 it we all know PS4 has better specs 100$ cheaper better first party games and games r going to be better on ps4 as well not only that some of the popular games r getting content only 4 ps4 2. Plus the online at this point well be better on ps4 as well y ur thinking well lets c ps plus pretty much kills live with savings free games avatars free to play games that r if not better then most Xbox games alone like planet side 2 warfame. To me gamers want ps4 and morons want the X1 that simply luv u being the controller. I c no value in getting an X1 unless A u like X1 games only and B u like the fact that ur the controller.
How do you know that PS plus pretty much kills Xbox Live?Online will not be better on PS4.Xbox Live is much better then that other one.
And how do you know Live is much better? How do you know online will not be better on PS4? Plus DOES kill Live in terms of value, in any case.
In other news sand is coarse,irritating and it gets everywhere.
Great news :)
Everytime I read N4G articles, I cant help but to stand in awe of how stupid some of these people really are. Now, it seems we have people saying "hardware doesnt matter. Specs dont matter. Games matter." You do realise that if consoles didnt evolve with new hardware and specs every new generation...we'd still be playing old 8 bit mario, galaga and pacman games. Consoles are meant to evolve and games are meant to evolve with them. The better the hardware and specs, the MORE a software developer is able to do with a game. Which means, we...the end user will be able to do MORE with the games we play. And THAT sells your games. Games dont sell based on sheer popularity or franchise name or brand. They sell because of how pretty they look, because of graphical improvements, more frames per second, higher resolutions, increased realism...and all that is based on hardware and spec improvements. Youre an idiot, if you think hardware and specs dont make or break a game. It's evolution. Plain and simple.
Yes it already has been proven allot of times but xbox fanboys/girls refuse to accept this. If it was the other way around i would gladly accept it.
@Hicken "And how do you know Live is much better? How do you know online will not be better on PS4? Plus DOES kill Live in terms of value, in any case." Plus doesnt kill live in terms of value.
