I respect your opinion but not this gen. xbox one day one for me.

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

pedrof931478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

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.

@golding89

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.

golding891478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

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?

pedrof931478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

@George

Use your bubble wisely.

I know I only have two so don't bother explaining it to me.

"X1 is currently dominating PS4 in exclusives"- Oh you mean the launch games ? Does this sequence of words "Wait for Gamescon and there is still tones of games to be shown and there is still 3 months 'till console is released" mean anything to you ?

ShwankyShpanky1478d ago

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.

blackbeld1478d ago

"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.

davidj881478d ago

@golding89

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.

Omegasyde1478d 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.

dudeOplenty1478d ago

@malokevi
I don't think you know what the word "fact" actually means.

JackStraw1478d ago

but ps eye can do just about everything kinect can do. people just haven't spent as much time developing for ps eye as they have for kinect. the most important things about the cameras are the depth cameras.

can you name 5 things kinect can do that ps eye can't?

ShwankyShpanky1478d ago

Right... gotta "think for myself."

Because if I thought like everyone else, I'd think that 460<500.

Power to ya, malokevi. Keep on thinkin' as only you can.

Xbot logic. Does not compute.

LordNikon1478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

@Malokevi

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.

BitbyDeath1478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

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.

boing11477d ago

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.

Cyanide851477d 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.

Ju1477d ago

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.

Death1477d ago (Edited 1477d 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.

Jrxbarrett1477d ago (Edited 1477d ago )

Kinect > ps eye(always)
Xbox live > psn
Kill zone 30 fps
Dual shock 4 hmmmm.... An led light yay.
The ps4 can be vertical or horizontal. That's new right?
15 min capture.... I mean that's really a pcs job.
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.

Next gen gaming is all online and mp modes. Xbox live is where it's at.

indysurfn1477d ago (Edited 1477d ago )

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.

blennerville1477d ago

you gota admitt waying your hands around in the air and shouting at your tv and ending up on the NSA watch list sounds better for TRUE GAMERS.

see what i did there :P

jcnba281477d ago

Funny thing is most of the stuff you mentioned about the ps4 was not impressive. PS4 design? Touchpad? Are you serious?

1477d ago
BaronVonRhett1477d ago

@Jrxbarrett

For one, everyone know the specs aren't equal, Xbox boys just down play the difference because who would ever admit their brand new toy is inferior.

Two, the Vita isn't garbage. Being able to pick up your full console game and take it around with you (with limitations on where you can go, for now.)is something I have heard many people ask to be able to do.

jcmeadows1478d ago

None taken for sure. I love the new features of the Xbox One. I just don't know if they are worth the extra $100, the Kinect is worth the money but I just don't think ill use it as much.

stuna11478d ago

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.

Godmars2901478d ago (Edited 1478d ago )

"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.

Edit:
"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.

kneon1478d ago

They didn't even need kinect for voice commands, even the PS2 had voice command.

All you need is a microphone, and that could have been added to the console for less than a dollar.

gamer20131477d ago

Dude, XB1 = more functionality, better games, more games and superior online>>> slightly better specs - period!

thexmanone1477d ago

@Godmars290
So MS finally released the specs for the Xbox1?
I did a search on the net, but I can`t find it anywhere. Do you have a link with that info.

1478d ago
Deadpoolio1478d ago

You mean all those EXACT same features that the PS4 has....Oh wait you can't hook up your cable box to it and pay an extra $10 a month to get those ads fueled by Doritos and Mt.Dew....Outside of that again they have THE EXACT same features...

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

For those who can't do math XBO controllers complete are $92 bucks....$60 (controller)+ $25(battery)+ 8%(sales tax)=$92 while Wii U and PS4 controller $64.79

princejb1341478d ago

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
