Should You Buy a PS4/Xbox One on Launch Day?

The Xbox One and the PS4 are both around the corner, and they’ve both released their console’s price and launch titles. So, which one should you buy?

The story is too old to be commented.
georgeenoob1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

Xbox One day One!

As for PS4, I'll wait a few years till there are actual games worth spending $400 on, which I doubt will ever happen since MS is the one investing $1 billion in exclusives. Damn, truth really does hurt doesn't it.

capjacksparrow1593d ago

Not necessarily. They have spent that money on creating a bunch of Kinect stuff, a few decent exclusives, and paying off third parties to make things timed exclusive. I don't want to see that in my industry, so I'll be voting for Sony with my wallet this holiday. Day one.

jackanderson19851593d ago

i could be wrong but i do believe the 1 billion is specifically for microsoft studio related titles which would rule out any of it going to timed exclusives.. just my take on it anyways

i'm sure there will be a few kinect games using up the 1bn

CynicalKelly1593d ago

There is a single Kinect game... And Sony does the same. They bought The Order 1886 and additional content for Watchdogs and Assassins Creed. It's already in your industry, but being a fanboy makes you blind to it.

I will be voting for the developers, playing all the awesome games on any platform while you restrict yourself to a few of them simply because you have a hard on for a corporation.

"Sony... They bought The Order 1886"

Not true... this game is being developed by Ready at Dawn and Sony Santa Monica and is being published by Sony Computer Entertainment. Far different from the MS "exclusives"... I would bet that Titanfall will find its way to the PS4. Disagree, but it is inevitable as it is not being published by or developed by MS, but rather by EA! How many EA console exclusives is anyone aware of?? Even Mass Effect 1 found its way to the PS3.

Sony has a history of stellar game development well into the life cycle of its consoles... PS2 had God of War 2 at the end... PS3 has The Last of Us and Beyond:Two Souls... MS could change going into the next gen, but based on history, Sony has the long-term vision and some of the most talented studios in the industry on its roster (Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, Quantic Dream, etc.). So, long term, I gotta give it to Sony if I was going to bet. Think about if you were going to put money down in Vegas on who would have the best, most diverse lineup of games in the next 5 years between Sony and MS, and I don't think that many would choose MS...

hiphopisdead1593d ago

lol @ georgeenoob

I can't believe he actually said that. lol.

you would rather, with Microsoft's $1b (they made off of you) to:

visit third party companies and say "here's money NOT to release it to sony", or, "here's money NOT to release DLC to sony for 1 month"...

rather than:

invest in a few in-house studio and say "let's take our time and come up with our own additional good games... and over time... we'll get better and better and grow".

so sony has uncharted, last of us, little big planet, god of war, gran turismo, etc...

and microsoft has halo, forza... wait, you're against building a game internally, you'd probably rather these games never existed and MS just paid for more COD DLC exclusivity... lol

@georgeenoob you are such a fanboy. You highlighted the 1 main area PS4 has a clear advantage over XBOX1... Sony's exclusive dev studios.

lol

NewWhiteFeather1593d ago

Personally, I feel CynicalKelly nailed it. Gaming is about the games and your enjoyment. I'll support any developer churning out good games.

thechosenone1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

Wait... for what? I need my Killzone, Infamous:SS, BF4, Watch Dogs, Drive Club, War Thunder, War Frame, PlanetSide 2!

Pretty sad. Go troll somewhere else.

He's getting almost as bad as personapersons or greenpowerz but I enjoyed pp's trolling. It was so swift, and nonsensical in literally every thread that it made me laugh out loud half the time haha.

Thegamer411593d ago

How much of that "$1 billion" went towards advertising, you don't know? Then stop talking rubbish which has nothing to do with games.
Look at how many AAA games Sony had on the PS3, that $1 billion statement by MS is just to get the hopes up of fanboys like you.

sAVAge_bEaST1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

Moneyhatting and wasting money,.. on Timed Exclusives,.. a billion wasted,. when they could be at least "renting"/giving games away like ps+ (not creative enough to develop new ip's)

DeadManV1593d ago

Look at the studios Sony owns, look at the exclusives on ps3, do you honestly believe the words that you are spouting?

jackanderson19851593d ago

the exclusives depend on personal preference really.. i'm a huge fan of The Last of Us but Uncharted just didn't do it for me... same with Killzone didn't do it for me either

N7Lukas1593d ago

Well said. Sadly, he probably does.

Allsystemgamer1593d ago

The disagrees just show how much stronger Sonys base is

HugoDrax1593d ago

Right! I was thinking the same thing, I'm beginning to despise this site hahaha. As far as what console I should buy at launch, I'm getting both and paying them off this weekend.

You do know that Microsoft dropped support of the 360 years ago. A bunch of those games are supposed to be Xbox 360 exclusives but they moved those to Xbox One. Basically shows that they don't give a damn about you and are telling you to go next gen.

And FWI, a bunch of those Xbox One games got negative impressions from game testers, for example, Ryse. They look unoriginal and uninspiring. Coming from a non-fanboy view who owns an Xbox 360.

Also Sony is saving a bunch of their games for Gamescom and TGS. Some of their titles are for eastern audience, Japan.

Also lets not forgot about the Kinect games MS has been shoving down our throats.

XboxFun1593d ago

Really, so this means that there will be NO games coming for the 360. Because as far as I know the 3rd party support for the 360 is still strong and still going.

this ridiculous spin that a lot of you seem to post about "no games" is getting tired.

And FYI, a bunch of those games are getting critical praises from a lot of gamers and critics. Ryse looks awesome it'll only get better since they confirmed it is still in a beta stage. And this is coming from non-fanboy who owns all the systems.

Also lets not forget the Kinect games MS is supporting unlike Sony who drops support of their peripherals.

strigoi8141593d ago

Part of that 1 billion already come from your pocket and will also come from your pockets in the future so stop that $h!tz okie kiddoh! every company does investing thats what they do from living its just how they spend it and use it..

Even if they spend 2billion but if they spend it on kinect games do you think it would be awesome?? Lmao eat your cereals kid

USMC_POLICE1593d ago

The last four letters in your name compliment your posy very well.

Sevir1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

LOL Its not a Billion Dollars on exclusives, Its a billion dollars to support the gaming experiences on the XBOX ONE, which personally is a about time they started doing that because thats an area that they lacked severly on the 360, It should put them close to Par with Sony who's spent just about the same amount of money on their first party, second part and close 3rd party partners.

You'd be a fool really to doubt Sony in spending and supporting the PS4 in software when They STILL have Money being poured into supporting the PS3 with 8 exclusive games launched/launching this year alone and its been on the market 1 year less... This entire year alone brought more exclusive games than what the 360 had this year and last year combined in terms of Core exclusives

And because MS announced that they are spending 1 billion dollars to finally support their platform you think Sony isn't doing the same...?

Of that 1 billion, MS backed up a dump truck at EA's lawn for partnerships with content to Battlefield, for advertisement of EA titles and for Titan Fall to launch exclusively on MS platforms first, They re-inked a deal with activision for COD DLC, Announced brand accosiation and exclusive advertising for Konami mega franchise MGS5 and they scooped up Dead rising 3 for a year while having indies like Crytek, Remedy, and Insomniac develop new franchises for the xbox one all this to launch 15 in house xbox one exclusives in its first year.

Compare all that to 3rd party partnerships sony announced and inked for the PS4 and PS platform, The warner brothers, the bethesda/Zenimax, Ubisoft, square enix, capcom and Mega deal partnership with Bungie and activision all for exclusive games across the ps3 PSVita and PS4 with addition exclsuive content, time exclusives on the PS Brand as well as exclusive advertisement on the PS Brand across Vita, PS3 and PS4, Sony's 30 PS4 titles in development with 20 coming in year one and you get the idea that Sony for PS4, has spent just as much money as MS on exclusives and partnerships and brand association, maybe even more considering they are supporting 3 platforms to MS's 2... Microsoft is playing catch up. If they were doing this the entire of the 360's life cycle, then it would be something to write home about. Sony's been doing this for 7 years and going forward with even more across 3 platform.

You said their is nothing that will make you spend 400 on the PS4 but you'll pay 500 to play the multiplatform games and a handful of exclusives, when most of the note worthy ones come a close to a year later and on the ps4. Yeah. thats logic of a fanboy ...

LoveOfTheGame1593d ago

What are those 8 exclusives?

Sevir1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

LoveOfTheGame when calendar year 2013 ends These 10 exclusives will have launch from Sony's First and Second party Studios and Partners On PS3 alone, Not counting the Japanese 3rd party exclusives launching this year. Go ahead Dispute my facts. I'll wait. 10 games in calendar year.

Ni No Kumi, Sly Cooper 4: Thieves in Time, The Last of Us, God of War Ascension, Rain, Puppeteer, Beyond: Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6, Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus, and Dragon's Crown.

LoveOfTheGame1592d ago

I wasn't disputing, I could only think of 5.

And your right there is 8 you listed as Sly and Dragon's Crown are not exclusive as they are also on Vita.

saywat2471593d ago

yeaaa ok you dumbass. microsoft always make new ip's at the beginning of a consoles life but when the xbox one starts to get a few years old they will stop creating new ip's and instead start throwing out sequels for their franchises over and over and over and over and over...get my point. they did that with halo, gears of war, and forza, besides those 3 series what other new ip's have we gotten??!!! they keep throwing out pointless sequels which get old and their games offer nothing new from what we already see on the market. microsoft doesnt care about games or gamers!! you wanna know what they care about...TELEVISION, SKYPE,TWITCH AND THOSE OTHER SHIT THAT WE COULD ALREADY DO ON A SMARTPHONE! CONSOLES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT GAMES NOT FUCKING TELEVISION AND FACE CHATTING AND SHIT!!! ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!

Nekroo911593d ago

thats why sony 1º party studios for the last 7 years have 8 or 9 goty contenders and MS as...2?! truth hurt doesent it Mr.noob

games: Uncharted 1 2 3
MGS4
GOW3
Journey
The last of us

also Sony still as 25 exclusives (not indies) to show which make twice as many exclusives xbox as.. go cry little baby

LoveOfTheGame1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

Games that were nominated or won GOTY:
GeOW 1,2,3
Dead Rising
Halo 3,Reach
Bioshock ( exclusive during awards )
Mass Effect( exclusive during awards )
Fable 2

But, not like you're bias or anything.

MxRBrobaFett1593d ago

I'm buying an Xbox one, but that's just a 100% troll post you just made there

jaelegend1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

Sony has always had more exclusives $ billion for MS exclusives will be a waste of money in the long run.

Nicxel1592d ago (Edited 1592d ago )

meh I mean I'm getting the XboxONE period. No need for a PS4 for me. The only games I wanted out of the PS3 were the Final Fantasy games. Now it's all going multiplat and with the X1 having bluray, Im sold haha.

But seriously, there are no games coming out exclusively for either console that I want on launch day. X1 has games coming out in 2014 that'll I want so I don't mind the wait.

I mean what happens if I get the X1 on launch day, get no games, and I transfer my profile over? Then I want to play Halo4? Do I really have to constantly transfer my profile back and forth to play my 360 games? haha so I can wait

I shouldn't. I will.

(PS4 btw).

gaffyh1593d ago (Edited 1593d ago )

I've never preordered a console before, but PS4 is the first one I have. It's up to your preference in the games that MS or Sony bring out, which will make it worth buying for you or not really. Personally, Sony has never let me down when it comes to games, which is why I'm wiling to buy on day one, and there is no franchise on Xbox that I feel I REALLY need to play (Mass Effect exclusive was one game I would have considered an Xbone for). Might get one when the price drops. Also, really want inFAMOUS, so thought it would've better to get the console in advance.

Wait. Lets see if both have hardware problems that need fixing and for the services to be streamlined and bug free. That is what I am doing

kingxtreme811593d ago

Both 4 me on day One.

The next generation of gaming cannot come soon enough for me. I can't wait to get my grubby paws around both of the beautiful new controllers and play Killzone, Dead Rising 3, ACIV, and Watch_Dogs.

Darth Gamer1593d ago

Both 4 me as well. Already paid them both off too. Bring on November. Just deciding what games to preorder now. I am going to not make the same mistake this gen though. I'm only buying one game at a time until its finished. I don't want another backlog of 30 games that is just sitting there.

HugoDrax1593d ago

Same here, let the fanboys continue to waste time and hate on others who don't have the same views as them. So far my pre order list is as follows.

XB1:
FIFA14
DR3
Forza5
Killer Instinct
Extra controller
2x play in charge Kits

PS4:
KILLZONE
Watch Dogs
Extra dual shock

WeAreLegion1593d ago

You're gonna want to stay away from PS Plus then.

kingxtreme811593d ago

@Darth and @ Auric

Good for you guys. Glad to see others supporting the games and not worrying about the console wars BS that captures so many others.

Game on my friends!
