IGN - IGN brings you up to speed on everything you need to know about the two next-gen Goliaths.
PS4 leading all the way.
And MS doing all the changes they need to be as similar to the PS4 as possible before launch http://31.media.tumblr.com/...
PS4 leading the way? With what, polls and speculated pre-order analysis? Xbox has the better launch and 2014 line-up, leaving you fanboys desperately waiting for Gamescom. And games is just one of the many advantages Xbox has over PS4. @below The title reads where do we stand now. Edit again: NOW, MS has a better CONFIRMED 2014 line-up. That's why I stated PS fans are left waiting for Gamescom. Did you forget what article I'm replying to?
@Noob How do you know? Can you see the future? @Above, NOW is 2013, you are talking about 2014, you can't even make comments without contradicting yourself EDIT: My bad, I forget that I shouldn't ask you questions (especially the ones that require common sense) because you only have 1 bubble
dude no way. Microsoft has locked most features behind the "xbox Live Gold" paywall. *Game DVR *Hulu *Netflix *Internet Explorer *One Guide (TV Guid, really) *Twitch Streaming (720p/30FPS) only *NFL Pass *Party Chat While on PS4...things not behind paywall are *Game DVR *Hulu *Netflix *Web Surfing *Ustream streaming (native resolution/framerate) *Subscription based MMO *Party Chat @Georgenoob I hope you're not counting TitanFall because that's not a launch titles. Ryse is an on rail QTE who's gameplay is being heavily criticized right now. Killer Instinct is ok. Dead Rising 3 could be the winner here. You're only guaranteed 1 title (XBL Gold required) for Xbox One. You're guaranteed at least 9 games with PS4 (ps+ required) at launch.
@ georgenoob This is a good non bias and neutral site. It is indeed very close call to prove your point.... http://xboxonevspsfour.com/ I LOLed
@georgeenoob "leaving you fanboys desperately waiting for Gamescom." Sorta like how MS fans were on their knees begging for people to wait for E3 for the past 4 years??? Until ONE E3 out of like 4 garbage conferences, they finally delivered (Somewhat)??? I'm sorry, but when Sony bring out the big guns from their studios (studios who are actually worth mentioning and aren't garbage or mediocre devs who've worked on nothing but Kinect/motion games)... You trying to compare exclusives will be downright hilarious. lol
Microsoft seems to have no vision for the Xbox One, and if they do have a vision, it's along the lines of TvTvsportsTv and NFL exclusive partnerships and "powah of the cloud". I understand not everyone enjoys the Playstation brand, but you gotta admit, at least Sony is aiming directly at gamers with their system. Xbox One? Not really.
Thing is, this is all perception. Can you honestly look at the xbox ones exclusive lineup and say that they are not focused on games? What is wrong with presenting people the best of both worlds, for me it creates more value for my system, with all of the things that it can do.
@ MELMAN Is it all perception? Maybe it's a good memory. I have enough sense to look into the past and see that - sure - Microsoft supported their own consoles quite well for the first couple of years and then after that, support was handed off to 3rd party devs. It's rather ironic that you bring up the Xbox One's launch lineup: many of the games were scalped from the 360 (Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Titanfall, Killer Instinct) to pad out the Xbox One's launch library. Are you going to be preaching about the "value" of your system when Microsoft decides to leave the Xbox One a wasteland in its latter years in favor of making games for their NEXT system instead of supporting their system long-term like Sony does?
I wouldnt quite say they have no vision. They have no one competent enough to explain it to us gamers.
@dedicatedtogamers Having a system that does it all is a fantastic way to expand on us gamers who want to take a break from gaming and watch sports or a movie. You telling MelMan above that MS does not support Xbox 360 is plain wrong look at how they have expanded Xbox live. We also got this year Gears of War Judgment, State of Decay, Some shared pc games, Original Fable remade, plants v Zombies modern warfare coming soon, Titanfall coming soon, World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition, Summer of Arcades, Max and the Curse of the Brotherhood and don't forget Ascend new gods, Hand of Kul, Lococycle all coming soon. They may not have the big blockbusters but there is no denying there is a ton of games for all types of gamers.
http://n4g.com/news/1334029... I just needed to come back to this because I have always said that this was Sony's intention all along. Sony fed you a line about "system for the gamers" and most of you bought it hook, line and sinker. How can you still honestly think that MS has no vision when they are doing exactly what Sony is trying to do now. At least MS was up front with their vision at their reveal. Sony played you all the while they're intentions was just as focused on TV as Apple or Google.
Xbox One day One :)
why "No" ?! it's his choice to buy what he want before you call me xbox fanboy i'm only buying ps4 BTW because it have all the advantages and no disadvantages and said many times why i will never buy xbox
@ Ezz, I understand the whole personal preference kind of thing, but you of all people should know why "No" applies. This video makes things crystal clear. http://www.youtube.com/watc... And I know what I'm going to hear. Cries of fanboyism etc, etc. I know it hurts, but unless you have valid responses to the points made, I don't want to hear it. One very, VERY questionable thing is as follows: how come Microsoft can update the GPU and how come they can continue working on the OS, software and more, but they CANNOT turn off the DRM before launch, and your console requires a day one Internet-required patch? A patch. This video discusses it well, with some very valid points: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I think common sense should tell you why. What appears to be so, is Microsoft are insuring that DRM placement for a time where they feel it will benefit them. There's plenty of other reasons to say "No" if this one is too "tinfoil hat" for you.
@digitalraptor i pretty much agree with every thing you just said and your last part do bring valid points
Day One edition for me. Those printed-logo Day One are gonna increase the value of the console 3-5 years later
That would be like selling your bowling trophy. The only reason it has value is because it's YOUR trophy. Only a pathetic person would buy a trophy they didn't earn. So... Why would someone buy your "teh day one" edition? There is *no logic behind that. Bro.
Playstation 4 day one :)
It leaves us with two great consoles, and everyone trying to come up with funds for their games.
Now that is an excellent statement. +bub
Haha exactly! I have already paid for my ps4 in full at gamestop and have been saving for games, have $190 so far saved up for just games and have a few months to go, pretty pumped
Ps4 for me all the way! Its not that I dont like xbox its grew up playing on sonys console since 1995
I'm loving the X1 so far. It has great exclusives for me. I like everything included like the Kinect, headset, 4K HDMI cord, even the power brick with built-in surge protector. It's really a great value.
Wait... you actually like the power brick?
If it's a surge protector that'll save my console from lightning damage. It happens. You can't rely on cheap surge protectors. They're basically just extension cords.
zealots are the best.
Honest ? Really.... Does the xbox one power brick really have surge protection? I dont mind the power brick but surge protection is great if thats the case.
Your listing a 4k HDMI cord as a feature? Lol, it's just a HDMI 1.4 standard lead, I have been using 1.4 on my AV setup at home for over a year now. You make it sound like a MS is packaging high end leads with the X1.
How is most of the XB1's features and capabilities being locked behind an Xbox Live Gold paywall great value? Reason 4, 12 minutes in, exposes that: http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is the kind of stuff that the mainstream media just don't have the balls to talk about or even question it.
Still PS4 :>, but glad to see Micro stepping up its game for X1ers to level the playing field recently.
The problem with ms I just think ms is to greedy for there own good if they wasn't they might get somewhere further
considering that MS is starting to listen to everything that people wanted like Gearbox did with Borderlands 2, shows that they now actually care about what people want, unlike when Mattrick was in charge
Excited for Gamescom! I just can't believe all the secrecy up to each trade show. Little details just keep trickling in drip by drip. I wanna know, now!
Great summary ign. Next-gen looks like it's going to be great especially the games coming out 2014.
Where do we stand? I don't know. Me though, got the PS4 paid off, now I'm just trying to pay for my launch games. And planning my launch day (midnight) routine. Do pizza places take midnight orders? I'd assume so, but...you never know lol.
x1 at launch then ps4 later if they bundle a vita (fingers crossed).
PS4 and the DS4 have some seriously-sexy form. So looking forward to some great gaming times courtesy of Sony 1st party devs.
Not looking into buying either console as of yet, but when I do it probably would be the PS4, wouldn't have touched a Xbox One while it had its DRM etc but they have done as well as can be expected to make it sound more desirable.
They both look great. Will get both of them within a year of their release. Will pick up Xbox One first due to more compelling launch titles. PS4 soon after.
IGN brings up Kinect as a "game changer", but shoves PS Camera off to the side, and doesn't mention Move support and remote play with Vita. For me personally, remote play is the biggest system feature of next-gen. Being able to play my console games anywhere if a big deal. Being able to play Battlefield, Final Fantasy, Killzone, Gran Turismo, GTA, etc... is way bigger than anything being talked about.
I am expecting remote play to work well in my home, but I do not have faith that Gaiki or remote play outside of my home network will work well. I just think the internet is too slow to send that kind of data over the internet at the responsiveness and precision needed for gaming. I suppose we'll see that maybe it will, but I am not expecting it. I do think playing in the home network will be cool, though.
Initially I was skeptical, especially after playing GoW HD via remote play at work, and there being some lag. But the PS4/Vita and Gaikai are being designed for this feature to work. Sony wouldn't require every game to have remote play if they didn't think it would work.
The strange thing is...the Kinect 2.0 and PS4 Camera aren't that different. If my phone's camera can test my heartbeat, I'm sure the PS4 Camera can, as well. Other than that, I don't see a whole lot of difference between the two. We've seen The Play Room, which is pretty cool. We have yet to see what Kinect 2.0 can do, in-game.
I agree... the difference is SOny isn't pushing their camera, and MS is. Sony could focus more on the camera, but like the video said... they are focused on the gamer right now, and it's paying off. Once the early adopter/core buy their consoles, they may focus more on the additional functionality/features that most core gamers don't have high on their priority list.
Ps4 purely on price
PS4 is going to be one hell of an experience if the previous generations are any indication.
Only a moron would get a xbox one. Xbox One.We Only do Morons.
Xbox One for me at launch, PS4 down the line. Wii U sometime never.
I think it's great that MS has reversed some of the problematic elements of X1. I'm still getting a PS4 at launch and have no plans on picking up X1 unless and until it comes without Kinect.
Will be enjoying my ps4 day one. I actually realize unlike so many other people that launch line ups are never the bread and butter of the console but just more so to hold you off until the big blockbusters hit later down the road. Microsoft if history repeats itself will start off strong then just fall off towards the middle and end in terms of exclusives the only difference this time is ps4 is seeming like it might launch before x1 and def won't be a year behind.
For me, the where we stand on the two consoles right now, and the main decision to make is this: PS4: better internal hardware, remote play on vita and Gaikai (although as I mentioned in an earlier post, I am skeptical of it working over the internet, but expect remote play to work well in the home, which is my primary use for it anyways), the value of extra games with PS+, the cache of sony historically making better first party games and price. XBOne: HDMI pass through, which allows the system to meld TV with games, smart match system, reputation system, unique entertainment aps, the potential of the cloud (much like Gaikai above, I am skeptical of how well it will work over the internet), Kinect (which I don't really need, but my wife and son seem to like), and personally all of my friends are Xbox people so I would have more people that I know to game with. Even though I was an Xbox home last generation, I am planning to get the PS4 at launch this time around. I don't think one is way better than the other, and if only one but not the other was coming out, I would be happy with the one that came out. And of course, after Gamescom, the list of strengths for each console could change.
All they need to do is show off some games, announce official release date, and actually show the console UI
What is sad is that PS4 and Xbox One are so similar you'll get the same experience. The only different experience I see is with the Wii U.
Why do people care so much what system everybody else is getting at the end of the day both companies just want your money & you guys are throwing fits over a console you have'nt even touched yet lol smh terrible
