Why I'm Choosing PS4 Over Xbox One

John Meadows from GoozerNation writes "For the past ten years Microsoft console's has been my gaming console of choice. But with this next generation of consoles upon on us Sony has swayed me to their side and the reason may surprise you because it surprised me." (PS Vita, PS4, Sony)

Maybe you didn't notice but Ps4 pretty much offers all the same so called "features".

Oh nevermind you are talking about kinect.

But the author opinion its all about the price. I could argue and give 10 more reasons, like the extra ram, the sony first party studios, the extra flops, the instant game collection, the cross game chat available for everyone, the 15 minutes capture, the playstation design, the new controller or even the Led on the PS4 and not to mention Killzone. But I won't bother explaining that. PlayStation app, background downloading, selective download, the touch pad on the dualshock, Infamous SS, it can stand vertically and horizontally .

What about Planet Side 2 ? No one mentions it, what a great game, I have it on PC but the poor thing can't handle it. Can't wait to play it on PC.


ps eye ? I don't care about it.

"has better online play" Sony says it has invest on the Psn support, I think it will run better now. I mean there is so many people downloading free games that the whole thing starts overheating.

"Sony needs to prove it has new games as last gen" - Because Microsoft has already proved it ? This is Sony.

"please dude..ps4 has better specs..that's it." Can't argue there I'm sorry you totaly shut me up.

Well that's it.

You are right. the day that the ps "eye" can do HALF of what kinect 2.0 can do..I'll take your statement as a valid statement. until then. no.

It's a fact dude.

Sony sacrifice your "eye" to compete with microsoft in prices. Look it up. I can't make this stuff up. lol

Edit: please dude..ps4 has better specs..that's it.

This is a new gen soon. Sony needs to prove it has new games as last gen. and don't even get me started on which has better online play.

No thanks.

Edit (2): "can stand vertically and horizontally" (like a pr0n star) lol nice one.

Anyways. i'm just giving my 2 cent on next gen. You like ps4..get it.. I like xbox one. I'll get that.

Later dude.

IMO only logical reason to get a PS4 over X1 is if you're 100 dollars short with no job.

Cause despite Xbox being an all in one system and not just for games (which is good), X1 is currently dominating PS4 in exclusives. Funny, don't you think?

Thing is, we know very little about what the new Eye can do.

Can the new Kinect take 3d photos? The new stereoscopic Eye can. Some (like me) may consider that a useless or niche feature... just like I consider reading my heart rate and emotions to be worthless. In fact, I assign them negative worth... many of the Kinect features are detriments in my opinion... not only do I not want to have them, I want to not have them.

"Sony sacrifice your "eye" to compete with microsoft in prices. Look it up. I can't make this stuff up. lol"

Why don't you "look it up" and give us a source? Maybe that's because it's just idiotic speculation. Just because you "can't make this stuff up," doesn't mean some other idiot blogger didn't.

So a PS4 is $400, and the Eye is $60... totaling $460... but they "sacrificed the eye" to compete with the price of a $500 unit? Being cheaper wasn't enough? They sacrificed it to be more cheaperer? Does not compute. Dude.

"Why I'm Choosing PS4 Over Xbox One"

Because Sony Playstation never ever let me down in terms of great Games and exclusivity since my first Playstation.
davidj88  +   637d ago | Well said

Well you can say Sony sacrificed the PS Eye but considering i can buy the PS4 + PS Eye and it'll still be cheaper than the Xbox One bundled with the Kinect 2.0 tells me 2 things, either Sony dropped the Eye to make the price more appealing and maybe MS bundled the Kinect 2.0 so they could bump the price up and use Kinect to justify it.

Also if anyone needs to prove it has new games it's MS, Sony proved they have continual development of original IP's to keep gaming a fresh experience and built up a reputation for supporting it's gaming consoles 100%.

Thirdly ''don't even get me started on which has better online play''.....can i borrow your DeLorean and try both next gen consoles online play too?

Maybe the PS eye can't do half of what the Kinect 2.0 can but that would surely be understandable seeing as they built the system around the Kinect. PS eye always was just an addition, something that gave a different experience when accompanied with the PS Move.
Omegasyde  +   637d ago
Yea Planet Side 2 I am really looking towards as I also had an outdated Pc that played ok between minium and recommended PC requirements.

@Georgenoob - How is it dominating? Oh I get, you don't count "console" exclusives. If you count games that will be on the PS4 and NOT on the xbox1 day one- PS4 wins with 1 extra (and that's not including indies)

Ryse, Killer Instinct, Forza, Dead Rising 3(4) vs
Killzone, Knack, Drive Club, War Frame, DC Universe online (6)

I am pretty sure Planet Side 2 will be ready at Launch or atleast within two months of PS4.

It isn't "speculation". Give me a break and think for yourself.

The eye was abandoned to beat Microsoft's price, as evidenced by the now defunct light bar built in to every controller.

Remember, "it will be able to determine who is first and second payer and change the screen accordingly"?

I love this selective memory that psfanboys seem to have.

I will be going XB1 day one as well, for all the refined features and multi-functionality that it has, not to mention the online emphasis, which is where I spend 95% of my gaming time.

Anyone who denies it will eat their words by days end. I will be enjoying a masterpiece in form and functionality.

My PlayStation4 will be plugged into my receiver, which will be plugged in to my XB1. Everything else is secondary, as always. Xbox Live simply can't be beat, thems facts fellaz.

Could you post the source where SONY themselves confirmed that they dropped the PS Eye to compete with MS......? You can't. Because it was ONLY a rumor, there was NO confirmation by Sony of said rumour... so stop treating it so. The only things i've read (from Sony themselves) is:

1. They didn't want to alienate their consumers like they did with the PS3.

2. Consumer choice. That's what Sony's being preaching about from the introduction of their next-gen device, iirc.

And please drop the Xbox fanboy biased act. You're just making yourself look like an idiot.

Sorry but Kinect has always been less powerful than the move/eye combo. Lag was never an issue and games like Killzone 3 and Heavy Rain used it. Kinect 2 may be better but it is yet to prove itself.

Ryse was supposed to be a Kinect game but obviously that didn't work out as that is no longer the case.

Anyone with a brain will choose PS4. Besides, MS is cutting the markets where x1 will be available on launch. They are way behind the schedule with production. Expect announcement soon.
Cyanide85  +   637d ago
I find reading X1 fanboy comments very funny they are really ignorant and MS slaves, just a few months ago pretty much EVERYONE was hating on MS, X1 fanboys was the worst because anyone that was already going PS4 didn't care that MS had all the DRM crap. And now they are defending the X1's useless "features" as they call it, I call it another way for MS to squeeze money from the consumers. And the tv crap only works in the US!

Now the ignorant MS monkeys that think that Sony cut the eye so that the PS4 would be cheaper, as said earlier its still cheaper WITH the eye than the X1 is. And how in the world would Sony know what the X1 price point would be?! Are you really that stupid people?! They wanted to have a good price point partially I think after the PS3 price disaster. And they see the eye as a addition now as a requirement like the MS NSA spy camera.

This is just my thought on the kinect requirement, they want you to use it so that when you do they can use the information they get from it to give you the type of advertisement that appeals to the person using the console.

And this type of advertisement is used already in some places in the world, they use all you info on say Facebook as an example they use that info to be able to send you the type of advertisement that appeals to you.

So be my guest and have a great time with you advertisement box.

The author brings up a valid point: Vita. Some of us have a Vita already. "Remote Play" is a unique feature I am looking forward to. I hope Sony will be bringing a Vita bundle which wold allow a better saturation and better chance of actually getting more second screen features (not only remote play). Well, sure, this might lead to more WiiU ports, but why not. BF4 Battle Commander would run well on the Vita.
Death  +   637d ago
It's ironic how Sony fans think buying a Vita for remote play is helpful. Same goes with Plus. For $50 (great deal by the way), you get free games. Brilliant if game sales are making you money. A Vita simply for remote play is a bad idea. Software generates profit, not hardware.

Sometimes this site gives me a headache...

Buy a PS4 because you like the games. If you are buying for the "hardware advantage" you aren't buying it for the right reason. Buy a Vita and some games to support the system and company. Plus is a nice thank you from Sony, but too many rely on it for content. Support your damn system with new game sales. Sony is not in a good place financially and just as they start to gain momentum some idiot decides a PS4 and Vita for $500 is good for Sony. Way to not only feel entitled, but take a chance at killing real sales with a made up sku.

Every one also knows that both consoles are just about equal. Just like last gen. When it comes to specs
First party studios? They can't make a break through fps so their studios are irrelevant.

Oh yeah vita is garbage. Handhelds are not that huge of a product anymore. Remember the days when We thought ms would make one. There's no need. They see the future...... In tablets and cell phones. Think ahead Sony.

Why This 10 year xbox lover is choosing PS4 over Xbox1.

Microsoft tried to steal my gaming ownership.
Microsoft tried to limit how many times I could lend a game out to 10 per disc when every system since the begging of time was unlimited. And tried to insinuate it was going to have other people playing it, while I was playing it. Microsoft tried to charge me a fee for saleing my game, and forcing me to a list of stores. Microsoft was not going to give any of it to the publisher or developer that they where hiding behind.

Microsoft was selling me a machine that would stop working, after the generation was over.
Without telling me this up front!

Microsoft kept insinuating this stuff was not true (pay attention to the legally binding words).

Microsoft finally admitted it, then started denying it again. Then admitted it FULLY, and revoked the policy.

This is my problem with them after they reversed it. If your a person that tried to break in my place, and steal but got caught before you could take the goods. Why the heck would I ever give you my money? Or trust you? Your my enemy now! Hello I'm no fool! I don't owe you anything especially not a second chance! I didn't owe you Nintendo, or Sony a first chance so why are you going around acting like I OWE you a second chance? Blank you, the end.

From the sound of things, you'll have no choice! I have no problem with preference per ce, but when it comes at the cost of choice, it becomes a hard pill to swallow!

People are looking at this the wrong way, here's a couple of prime examples, when your shopping for a new car, you can pick the color, the model, the brand, and a number of extra amenities! The same goes for the style of clothes you wear, the food you eat, even the tv's and computers you buy give you choices even from the same manufacturers.

Nintendo gives gamers choice, Sony gives gamers choice, the question people should be asking is why can't Microsoft also give gamers choice? And for starters that choice should be to be able to purchase a $500 console without the need to have a camera attached to it.

"the day that the ps "eye" can do HALF of what kinect 2.0 can do."

But what can/does Kinect 2.0 actually do? Past voice commands, and being about to watch/track you, they've only stepped back from any usefulness it has towards games. And you're only paying extra for it. Paying for access to things you'll have to pay more to actually access.

"please dude..ps4 has better specs..that's it."

And when the 360 had the better specs over the PS3, a unified 1/2 GB of RAM versus two 1/4s anyway, many MS fans tried to lord that over the system.

Although PS4 doesn't want $92 bucks for a complete controller or $50 bucks for a headset adapter....

Lol who actually cares about kinect. Ps eye can go drown itself also
I want to play games with a gaming controller not have to stand my lazy self up and do gestures
Kinect 1 sold millions however it had no games to back up all that technology. Kinect 2.0 is going the same route.

So far both launch titles for both consoles aren't very impressive to me

However Sony has proved to me they back their console with new ips and many more exclusive.
All we basically saw from MS this gen was a bunch of sequels of the same game over and over again. Gears, halo, forza, crackdown, gears, halo, halo fable, etc.
I will be expecting the same next gen from Ms while Sony keeps releasing new ips
gamer2013  +   636d ago
The amount of exclusives the PS3 has compared to the PS2 is really pathetic. I have to ask, is a measly few more first party games really something to boast about? After all, the 360 has a larger overall library of games than the PS3 because of it's year head start.

Eyetoy wannabe? No, I don't think so. The new Kinect uses 1080p camera, processes 2 gigabits of data per second to read its environment, can see in the dark with it's IR sensor, able to track up to 6 skeletons at once. It can also detect a player's heart rate, facial expression, 25 individual joints (even thumbs) and the precise rotation of such joints, the weight put on each limb, and the speed of your movements, and track gestures performed with a standard controller.

Here's some more reasons for the xbox one

More reliable online gaming, better interface, better controllers,direct x 11.2 exclusivity, Ryse, Titanfall, Halo 5, Forza, Dead Rising 3, Quantum Break, Killer Instinct, Gears of War 4, snapping, better looking games (looking at the actual games and not numbers)
jessupj  +   637d ago
I've been gaming online on my ps3 since the start and in all those years I might have been d/c'ed from a game maybe 5 times. The PSN is just as adequate.

A lot of sources have been saying how great the PS4 interface is.

Many sources have been saying the D4 is better than the X1 controller.

X1 doesn't have a better line up and it doesn't have better looking games. It's too subjective at this point.

What X1 does have is a company backing it that is known to drop the ball on exclusives as soon as they think they have enough core customers. The amount of exclusives released in the last few years on the 360 has been absolutely pathetic to the point where I would think xbox fans would be extremely embarrassed.

Sony is known for producing amazing games. It's a no brainer really.
hilyou  +   637d ago
I have a question for you? How do you know Xbox One has more reliable online gaming? You haven't used it. So how do you know?

If your reply is "Xbox Live never got hacked on 360", that's not a reply. I thought PS3 would have the best games due to PS2 having the best games but I was wrong.

Plus Titanfall is a timed exclusive. There is no Gears of War 4 (although I wish there was), and there isn't Halo 5 either, at E3 there was a teaser for a Halo game that's it. No "Halo 5".
hilyou  +   636d ago

They haven't confirmed it's Halo 5.
You forgot Infamous Second Son.
And going by your logic for GOW 4, I assume there's going to be Uncharted 4, LittleBigPlanet 3, new God of War, maybe a Last of Us sequel, new Ratchet and Clank plus so many more games.

And if you know anything about networking, those aren't 300 000 "dedicated" servers. They're servers for cloud computing, Game DVR, streaming etc. Nearly all 3rd party games use their own severs. That's why you always hear EA shutting down their game's servers, not Microsoft.


And I totally want to use other applications while gaming. I really won't get distracted. :)

I've also heard sources say the xbox one interface is better and we have seen some of it looks great can't say the same for Sony. I also hear that the xbox controller is perfection while the D4 may be an improvement it still looks like the wimpy joystick they slapped a touch screen on .

You can't honestly say Ps4 has the better games now. Knack, Driveclub, Killzone going up against Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Forza, and Killer Instinct xbox one's definitely winning that battle

For the guy that said Halo 5 is just a teaser and not a real game??? I hope you're kidding and know that Halo 5 has already been confirmed at 1080p 60 fps. Gears of War is a top selling xbox series so if you think they won't make another you're lying to yourself

Xbox one will have 300K of dedicated servers and yes credit card info has never been compromised.

Titanfall hasn't been *confirmed* to being created on the Ps4 so until then it is a xbox one exclusive but maybe you Sony fans will get Titanfall 2 lol

Microsoft stop making exclusives for the 360 because they were prepping games for the xbox one and now they have more games in development than ever

But since the upset by fans MS reversed there choices now its like 360 vs PS3 again..Why? To me as a gamer witch we all are Games matter here we spending alot money for new system to me both consoles are close to specs both powerd by AMD i think PS3 has edge in way of graphics way there system works.
But here's reason why i beleave Sony will always dominate thats GAMES GAMES GAMES after 12 months MS will be doing what they do now exclusives dry up start depending on third part games.

So you rather not enjoy the best gaming experience? All those extra "features" they are touting aren't actually innovative or the future of gaming. If you want to keep supporting the same company recycling the same franchises for 10 years and have pop up adds for food then be my guest.

"I rather my gaming console can do all the extra features Xbox one is offering. No offense guys."

"Extra Features" like spying on and data mining you?

No thanks, I'll pass. If I have to choose between my right to privacy and playing a video game, I'm going to choose not to erode my rights to privacy and personal freedom.

I don't know, maybe grow a backbone?

BTW, I have a suspicion that right when you fire up the XBone for the first time, it'll unlock the following achievements:

"We're Watching You"

Just kidding about that last part. But seriously, you have to be spineless to sell out your right to privacy just to play a &*^%$#@'n video game!!

If Sony pulled this with the PS4, I'd shun them faster than a Catholic Priest does allegations of child rape.

Nothing wrong with wanting an XB1. Just understand what you are getting your self into and the potential outcomes that it brings.

I've owned the last two xbox's but I'm probably going with Playstation for the first time ever in my life.

Kind of an intuition thing about future games.

I've been getting more into RPG's lately and I just don't see many quality ones making their way to the US on the XB1.

Especially JRPG's, as XB1 is and won't be popular in Japan, there may not be reason for them to makes rpg's on XB1.

XB1 does have TitanFall & Forza, Spark & Sunset Overdrive, which all look unique and really good, but it may not be enough to appeal to me.

Sad because Xbox 360 controller is my favorite, but I dunno, something about their sneakiness just doesn't sit well with me.

Not only that, you have to consider paying to play online X years you own the system.

That's an additional $100 now. Do just for first year (400) + (500)+ (50) + ~(50) = 1000 + games on both.

To me its about the exclusives and the way Microsoft decided to pay for DLC instead of games, makes me worry.

Weak excuse.

If you're a gamer, you'd be concerned about what Microsoft attempted with the XB1 before their 180.

You don't just buy a console because it's a console, because buying that console might send the wrong message to the manufacturer. You don't just buy a game because it's good, because that might make the dev and publisher think it's okay to do something bad(on-disc DLC, for example).

Whenever I hear "I'm getting both because I'm a gamer," I believe the exact opposite about that person, because it shows they're not actually thinking about the industry, which is one thing any REAL gamer should do.
Septic  +   637d ago
"You don't just buy a game because it's good"

Lol what? No I DO buy a game because it's good. I'm in this for the games, not to abide by some person's blinkered agenda.

All this so-called caring about the industry....I have severe doubts about how genuine these concerns are.

Each to their own. I buy games that are good full stop. If a developer has a made a title that I feel is worthy of making me spend money, then that's all I'm concerned with. I'm more concerned with enjoying the medium by playing enjoyable games. THAT is what a true gamer is.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   637d ago

Rachel_Alucard  +   637d ago

You are a corporate sheep and you don't look at the big picture of your actions.
Hicken  +   637d ago
I don't buy from a dev who's a jerk, like Phil Fish. Sorry, but when you act the way he did, you don't get my money.

I don't buy from publishers like Capcom, even if their games are good(which is why I didn't pick up Asura's Wrath, despite enjoying the hell out of it). Not gonna show support for you nickel and diming people, doing things like selling DLC that's already on the disc I bought.

I don't buy from console makers like Microsoft, even if they'll have some exclusives I'd like to play. I mean, the "vision" they had for gaming is one in which they- console makers and publishers- control how we use what we buy. We'd own nothing, and there's no way I'm supporting that.

Whether you have doubts or not means nothing to me. I've been gaming for as far back as I can remember, and it's one of my favorite things to do. I'm not making my decisions for you to agree or disagree with, but I AM doing them so ALL gamers can have the best possible industry.

That means not supporting companies that wallet rape. It means making sure we OWN the games we buy, that console makers don't get to render our libraries inert at their whim. It means not buying a game that's the same as the past five, with slightly different coats of paint.

Disagree? That's your choice. But if you think a TRUE gamer just gives up his cash to a company he doesn't think will do the medium right, then your definition needs reworking.


@TRH: There are more important things than whether or not something's enjoyable. Hell, with that logic, Microsoft could sacrifice newborn babies stolen from their mothers, and it wouldn't matter because they made good games, right? They can smear poo on your sister's upper lip and push your grandpa down the stairs, but that's all good, cuz they make good games. GTFOH.

@BLK: Your entire comment is pure ignorance. But as long as attitudes like yours are in the minority, I'm fine. Yeah, my job and my family are more important than gaming, but what type of self-centered ass must you be to make a comment like that?

Oh, well. Maintain your ignorance. I'll keep doing what I do. It's funny though: if anybody shows they're not gonna just forget that Microsoft tried to shaft them, and you're a Sony fanboy. Even former MS fanboys.

Rubbish argument.

"You're disgusting attitude is akin to someone knownly buying a pair of shoes from Nike that have been made by poor little exploited children in sweat shops."

I'm sorry, does Microsoft have exploited kids working for them? I don't think so. Analogies are used for the IDEA. Here is an extract on the limitations of analogies:

"an analogy is a double-edged sword in that uncritical use of it may lead to misconceptions. This is because there is no such thing as a perfect analogy, that is, it is almost always impossible to have a perfect one-to-one fit between the analog and the target. Some pupils may only remember the analog and not the target, while others may focus on irrelevant aspects of the analog to form incorrect ideas about the target "

The last sentence of the quote sums up your mistake. You have pushed the aspect of the analogy. You exaggerate the situation, comparing a company that wants money to a company that allows child exploitation. These situations are very different and cannot be compared. It is correct with respect to the idea that you may not like the company, but to use extrema to push your point? No.

"If more people were like Hicken, a real gamer, and less like you and Septic maybe we wouldn't have so much overpriced DLC."

Real gamer? Please do explain to me how to differentiate between a 'real gamer' and a gamer. And what's this about getting over-priced DLC? Sorry but if the demand is high, a natural reaction would be to increase prices to maxmise profit. Also I don't even understand what is and isn't over-priced.

"Maybe we wouldn't have a COD every single single."

So it's Microsoft's fault that there is a CoD every year? I don't think so.

"And most likely MS would have never tried to royally F gamers by trying to implement DRM. "

Microsoft had a plan. They presented the plan. People did not like the plan. Microsoft changed their plan. This is much like an architect. You present your plan to the audience to see the reaction.

Also, you just said that Microsoft TRIED " to royally F gamers by trying to implement DRM. ". So you're saying that a company that wants money, is trying to screw them over? You must be messed in the head to think this.

In order to sell a product, it must appeal to the audience. Now Microsoft wants money, so they make a console to try appeal to the gamers. What you're saying is that Microsoft wants the money, but are trying to make the console as unappealing as possible. So your argument is invalid.

"You think you're a real gamer? You and Septic are the furthest thing from it."

This is one of the problems with N4G, many of you use terms you don't even understand. Before you use terms such as 'real gamer', prove to me you understand the meaning of it. Show me how a true gamer differs from a gamer. Prove to me that the last part of your argument that you are clinging on to is correct, otherwise consider your entire argument refuted.

Actually a pizza comparison would be more credible because both would have a single-common aim, taste. With pizza's you don't have to take too much into account. It's all about how fresh the ingredients are and how the flavours work together. Pizza's would have a bit to do with preference, but quality is much easier to differentiate when it comes to food.

Consoles have a lot to take into account. You've got the games, service, aesthetics (if you're one of those people), user-friendliness, ergonomics (controller), what each is capable of doing, reliability and so on.

But yeah, I fully understand and agree with the point you're getting at.

So it's okay for Sony to rip people off on memory cards but not okay for Xbox to use batteries and they don't even profit off of said batteries.

If you're assuming re-chargable AA batteries from Xbox are somehow magically not compatible with the AA Xbox One controller, then by all means you're correct.

Remember though, preference does play a 90% role in which controller you play better with. You wouldn't want to get the console with the controller that you don't like, cause you'll be using it all the time.

Why I am choosing PS4 over Xbox One (Don't take offense Xbox Fans, I am just stating my opinion, and would love to hear why you are getting Xbox One)


-Great Games, Killzone is the only launch game I have my eye on but I am more excited about the future exclusives

-PS+ Free games!

-All the F2P games I can't play on my PC

-Not forcing a camera down your throat, I do not like motion gaming at all

-Exclusive content, like extra hour of gameplay for AC4 and Watch_Dogs

-I personally trust Sony more after the whole 180 thing

-Full Indie Support, I need mah indies...

-It comes with a mic, I do not have one right now and the Kinect sound comes out of the speakers, making it embarrassing to be called a "360 No dick faggalot" in front of my parents

-I had a PS2 and PS3, so it is smoother to go to PS4 than changing brands completely

-15 Mins of recording time, It helps my struggling youtube career

-Gaikai=Backwards compatibility, I am selling my PS3 to help pay off my PS4, so I can't play any of my PS3 games, but with Gaikai I can play my games.

-I like what I have seen about the Dual Shock 4 so far

Anyway that's everything I thought of so far, again don't hate, just tell me what you agree with or don't agree with..

Sony would lose a lot of money if they did this, but they really need to let any SD card be compatible with Vita.

The biggest reason I don't have a Vita is because an adequate memory card would be another almost half the price of the system itself in addition to just the system, so I can't justify the purchase.

Sony, let us use any SD card, and I promise you way more people will flock to the Vita. Your memory card charade is killing you guys!!
Omegasyde  +   637d ago
The reason for the proprietary memory cards is due to piracy (hence no other memory card is available).

I agree the price is way too much, but you can always delete games and re-download them for later use or store them on a PC or PS3.

Sony makes SO LITTLE money on the blu-ray sales in XB1 that it's laughable...Sony does not own Blu-Ray tech, they are just part of the consortium. There are other companies involved as well. XB1 won't be using a Sony Blu-Ray player, so they won't get money directly, and the amount that they will get is so minuscule that it's only double what Sony made this last decade (obviously that's a joke being as Sony has lost money)

I'm going PS4 first, i just couldnt pass it up especially as it $100 less. I will eventually get Xbox One tho aswell.

Yay more people justifying why they are choosing one console over the other to validate in their minds they chose the right system.

So this is what "News" 4 Gamers is all about? Troll articles on why I am buying console A over console B is considered news? How about something actually new? I am not clicking on this article.

Yet another reason why you should get a PS4:


The PS4-eye will have more or less the capabilities of the Kinect2.

I was originally going to buy a PS4 first. After finding N4G I changed my decision. I had 3 RRODs, and played live with a million 15 year olds. You all make that experience look better and better every day. This community is worse than anything MS could possibly create.

I am still sticking with my PS4 pre-order but I also pre-ordered the XOne recently. I get the best of both worlds, and I can be both a PS and Xbox fan.

You'll be stuck in middle of arguments man. You might get bashed by both sides for no reason.

You were never going to get a PS4. Lol so here we go with the lies. No sane person would let people on a website deter their choice of console. It's either you're emotionally weak, or you're just a punk hurt by a few words on the internet. Nice attempt at trolling.

IMO the Xbox One is just a slightly beefed up 360 with a camera added. It's not really trying to dominate the gaming scene. They want to "be solid" in all areas of entertainment, not dominate the gaming scene.

When I look at Sony & the PS4, I see a company truly dedicated to dominating the competition. They want to be the #1 system for video games this upcoming generation. To get the best content and produce the best games. They did lots of research about what went right and what went wrong this Gen and applied it to their PS4 philosophy. They saw the "bluy ray" is all you'll need & do everything philosophy put a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths.

My problem with MS is truly this: I have like 4 or 5 media devices in my home that does everything better than what the Xbox One is offering. So why do I need the Xbox One then? They are competing with all of the other companies that offer that. That's a very competitive field. I only need a device that does one thing. Yes, there's nothing wrong with a console that does more, but when your console reveal was headlined with "T.V, T.V, Sports, Kinect", then I have a problem. I cannot consider the X1 until kinect is no longer offered with the system.

I've always though Sony's had more personality....more swagger....more of "it". I can't really explain that, but they have more personality than MS. I mean they have such a diverse library of games, and I love it. Sony takes so many risks with games like the last of us, & beyond two souls. Those are games I come to appreciate so much in a market over saturated with generic fps games.

That's great, man.

I'm choosing the xbox one over the ps4, initially. Xbox one just has more overal OS(s) features and a more compelling lineup at the start (subjective). I do also enjoy kinect's media center functionality.

PS4 won't have gaikai at launch, another reason i don't mind getting a ps4 in 2014 rather than 2013. I'll be getting a ps4 regardless but i hope they can really deliver on remote play this time, as well as gaikai streaming ps3 games.
GamerGuy153  +   636d ago
I agree that the initial line up of the Xbox One is very impressive but I couldn't justify purchasing one system over the other based on the launch lineup. Because the Xbox One could have a great launch line up but if the games after it are crap, i end up with a worse experience. We will be playing these things for 6+ years so the great games need to be there the whole time. Thats why I personally choose PS4, because with the PS3 they continued to deliver great and numerous exclusives for the duration of the consoles life. The Last of Us and Beyond Two Souls is testament to this. I trust Sony to deliver more than Microsoft.
corvusmd  +   637d ago
I won't read the article, but I can already say that if his only reason isn't that he personally prefers the PS4 exclusives, then his argument has no backbone. So since we are just spreading opinions here, I was planning on getting both consoles until PS4 proved to me at E3 I could save my money...there was no innovation or exclusives I cared about (except Order, but I don't know enough about it, and it's not enough to get a console for). I'm going XB1 cause there are several exclusives of theirs that I care about, plus their XBL service will actually be a huge upgrade on current online services, and that is a huge deal for games I like (MP/MMO/Sandbox) so even cross platform games I like will have a better experience on XB1...plus hearing developers like DICE say that they are using DX 11.1 and that it makes the game look it's best, and that's an XB1 exclusive (console-wise) this is an easy decision for me. Not to mention I actually like the kinect features (I don't use it for Kinect-Made games, but I like the voice commands, and other "soft features" of it...plus I can't wait for illumniroom and I'm interested in their AR glasses.) Future looks bright for XB1, PS4 is really just a more powerful PS3, with an upgraded PSN that still isn't even as good as current XBL. Maybe after a few years when there is a price drop and if PS4 comes up with about 3-4 more exclusives that I HAVE to have..then I'll grab one (but skip PS+ and stay online with XB1)...but as for now I look at it as they saved me $450 that I can use towards all the games I need to get for my XB1

I'm getting the console that has games I want to play, and since both PS4 and XBO has some cool looking exclusives i'm getting both.

Why not....

Because apparently on N4G you must choose a side, and after said side has been chosen, you must do everything in your power to make the other side feel inferior and is if they have made the largest mistake in their natural existence. Until then you are not a true Gamer®

100 dollars cheaper is a big selling point to me, but when they drop the price of the xbox one to around 400 Ill buy it and dead rising 3 first thing.
