Recent events have made it seem that the battle between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is relatively even. The gap between the two has arguably never been closer, with fanboys from both sides claiming their console is better.
Sick of it. I've made my decision, and I'm happy with my plan of action and rational. Listening to idiots dig at each other under the guise of "comedy" is sad and pathetic. All I want is for my console of choice to hit the shelves so that I can leave all this crap behind for another 10-20 years.
"fanboys from both sides claiming their console is better" to be fair XB1 fans never claimed it was ever more powerful, they just try to downplay the big power advantage the PS4 has.
"more powerful" and "better" have very little to do with one another.
true fortunately for Sony they have a large number of very talented studios to fulfill that power potential.
Yes. Not really what I was saying, though. I just found it odd that you quoted a passage that didn't so much as mention console power, and then went off on a complete tangent. Its pretty clear that to you, power is the sole determinant. And, that being the case, you have obviously thrown all of your weight behind the console with the raw power advantage. Personally, I see power being one of the least important factors this generation, especially considering both consoles are so evenly matched.
Ironic article, considering the source.
Problem with fanboys or fangirls is in the gamers age group. younger gamers will have fanboys tendencies and that will never change so us more mature gamers should ignore the console war and let youngsters get on with pointless fighting :) sit back and lough Another thing i noticed that calling "Fanboy" someone who have different opinion on witch console to buy is some kind of new way to underestimated they choice. Very silly thing to do as we all have our own reasons.
lough? Yeah you're a mature gamer alright.
@Valentinus Spelling mistake not a problem English is not my first language. i ment "laugh" I'm still laughing
There's really no competition here. PS4 IS the better console. It is more powerful and it costs $100 less. This article is kinda funny though considering the website its coming from.
Writer states Sony changed their policy after MS backlash but that wasn't the case. http://www.thesixthaxis.com...
Thing is Nobody can proove this. Andrew House says they didnt, but ofcourse he wouldnt say that it did Here is what I do know Microsoft planned to, but then changed Sony said no drm What was planned or what was rumored is irrelivant Getting a PS4 sometime next year and just as i hope everyone with a ps4, i hope the people with a xbox one will have a great time with their system 400 dollars/euros, 500 dollars/euros It is still alot of money to most people
Sony DID say, way back around the time of their reveal, that the DRM policies on PS4 would be the same as PS3. And the only such things on PS3 are online passes. But, for some reason, people wanted to hear SPECIFICALLY that there wouldn't be the same DRM that Microsoft was employing. Which is why they had to address it at E3, rather than focusing on games and other stuff.
Go with the system that caters to you. Embrace each system for the experiences they are going to bring and leave the politics behind. After all none of us get paid from MS or Sony to sit around here declaring winners losers or who is better or worst. November can come soon enough. My choice will be Xbox One.
Xbox One has fanboys? Well, excluding the MS employees who have been crawling n4g for the past month doing damage control and stealth trolling.
How the hell did brand loyalty and fevered support of your favorite become a bad thing and looked down upon???
I don't know. I disagree with it being a bad thing. The interesting thing is that it's not a big deal in ANYTHING else. I frequently reference the rivalry that borders on animosity that takes place in the auto world: people hate fans of other automakers. This was especially true back during things like the muscle car era here in the US. Nobody rails against the Star Wars/Trek fanboys(except, maybe, in reference to their nerd factor). But don't let people defend their preferred console or developer, oh no. You can argue android or iPhone all day, but Sony/MS/Nintendo is a no-no.
That was exactly my thoughts. If any industry had a lack of fans, big or small, even the game industry, they would fail. Call me a fanboy all you want.
Guys/Gals let's just be completely honest with ourselves. The only determining factor in which console you choose is whether you want to hold a PS4 controller in your hands while gaming, or an Xbox One controller. 'nuff said.
"Guys/Gals let's just be completely honest with ourselves.

'nuff said." ------------------- I thought you had to wave your hands and speak to your Xbox controller? Or have I been missed informed? Or are you talking about the hand held "gaming" controller that comes with the Xbox multimedia box? - the controller that still requires battery's? or a battery pack and play and charge kit and an adapter to use your current headset on this gaming pad. (waits for comments on poor grammer or spelling)
Thank you fattyuk for letting us all know that you prefer the PS4 controller. I'm sure you will defend PS4 and slash Xbox One until your dying day -- controller in hand the entire time. I'm not going to comment on your grammar or spelling as that seems to be a lost cause.
didn't say I prefer the PS4 controller, how could I when I haven't tried either.
"Missed informed" LOL See what I did there??
... Comments on an article about fanboys getting along ... Gets attacked by fanboys ... LOL
Not true. I'm not a kid anymore; I pay far more attention to the impact of my decisions now than I used to. Had it been Sony, and not Microsoft, that came out with all those anti-consumer policies, non-gaming focus, and utterly ridiculous claims, I'd be getting an XB1 or just a Wii U, instead. I DO love me some Sony games, but I'm not gonna buy their stuff at the expense of my principles. I won't support any company- if I can help it- that does on endorses things I don't agree with.
I'm incredibly sick of it as well. I think arguing about hardware is pointless - its the games people should focus on.
not argueing about hardware, arguing about which company is a two faced peice of shit. most already know the ps4 is the better choice spec wise
Well said! Bubbled.
esRam vs GDDR5 and whatnot. It's all shenanigans, antics, hijinx and yes, even tomfoolery. The DEVS know how to handle each system and only the games will tell what each system is capable of. I'm not a fanboy (minus the avatar) but I've made my choice already paid in full. This war is going to continue on into the last generation of gaming these consoles will have. I just hope that each side and even owners of both get the most out of their systems because after all we just want to play games.
Most articles these days are like fucking bones they throw at the fanboys to fight over. We get it, you love you console of choice and you do. Can we shut the fuck up for a day atleast and have original articles??
I don't calim xbox is better than playstation at all I just hate the fans which results in me not liking the company or console they hate everything but sony they would suicide bomb for sony.
