Sony: “You can Buy a PS4 Plus FIFA 14″ for Less than Xbox One, Pre-Orders are “Breathtakingly High”

In a bid to entice European gamers to put their money down on an Xbox One and pre-order the system before it launches this November, Microsoft is offering up a free copy of FIFA 14. - PSLS (FIFA 14, PS4, Xbox One)

The camera is irrelevant. It really is not the selling point that Big Green and some of the people on this site think it is. Some want it, most don't, but either way trying to make the camera seem like a value is just wrong. It's not like there is any 3rd party competition for that camera that can make it a value so either it's irrelevant.
MysticStrummer  +   337d ago | Well said
@Tom - It would be more accurate to say that most people don't want a camera, and for them it is a negative to be forced into buying one if they want MS's console.

$100 extra for something most people don't want = Not great marketing

People keep saying "but you don't get the $200 camera", so I have to ask, would it make more sense to sell the One for $300-$350 instead to force a camera that, in the past, worked really bad? And for the people who will say "but Kinect 2.0 is da best thing eva", just watch the lag on that fighting game demo, besides, not everyone wants Kinect and the shovelware that comes with it
BitbyDeath  +   337d ago
If Sony needs the camera included for a better comparison then MS needs better hardware included so be sure to add an extra $200-300 on for them too

The camera will be relevant when they give us a reason for it to be relevant. Right now there's no such reason.
papashango  +   337d ago
so for an extra 40 bucks you get one of the most advanced motion sensors to come to market.

There's this whole argument going around trying to justify why the ps3 was so expensive. "YOU GOT THE CHEAPEST BLU RAY PLAYER ON THE MARKET AT $600!!!"

just sayin 40 bucks more gets you get a crazy advanced piece of hardware with the X1.

"The camera is irrelevant."

why, because you say it is? over 20 million people bought it for the 360 and it was a lot worse. xbone owners now know it is unified with the system and will get more support.

its like saying the gamepad on the wii u is irrelevant or the bluray drive on the ps3 is irrelevant and they could have used dvd instead to keep costs down. same with wi-fi adapters.

the fact is m$ does not have to offer the same system sony is. thats why we have options and m$ have invested billions of dollars into this technology. apple is also investing in voice control for siri, its what they believe in. voice control can make searching easier. a camera can also make things like auto-signing and controller preferences easier to deal with too.

i dont get why sony fanboys care so much when they have a system that is perfectly fine for them. its like they don't get any satisfaction unless they can blast m$ every chance they get. its like a bunch of kids at school teasing and taunting others.

who is asking for touchpad controls on the dualshock? again it's a vision sony thinks is important. it doesnt bring the cost to $500 but its still something they think we all will want to use.

not only is m$ offering fifa free for pre-orders they are trying to make the xbone version the most desirable with additional content.

who knows, maybe in a year they will drop the price like sony had to with vita.

Third party developers won't use Kinect and if they do incorporate Kinect functionality, most likely they will have the same functions on the PS4 with the eye. The only games that will take advantage of Kinect are first party games and it will be a tacked on feature that will be optional OR they will be Kinect based games like Kinectimals (woohoo...).

Ryse was supposed to be a Kinect based game and MS reversed that like another 180 that they are now know for. Shows how much faith they have in Kinect now doesn't it...

Even with the ps camera, it'll still come out cheaper! People can argue semantics all day, but the Ps4 will still be the cheaper choice, add ps+ still cheaper, add earbuds still cheaper, of course you'll have to add those same cost to the Xbox 1 to get comparable results.

FYI got my PS4 day one edition paid for so I'm no MS fanboy, just wanted to state the obvious when it comes to the biggest turn coat company on the planet.
For all the ignorant fanboys out there that has not yet realized that MS doesn't listen to consumers they listen to sales numbers and pre-order numbers that's it! The ONLY reason for all these 180's.
andibandit  +   336d ago
@xHeavYx

In order for the kinect to have any chance for success the first thing MS must do is guarantee developers that it is present.
After that developers might actually support it better, altho 3rd party developers will be far less inclined than 1st party developers.

these two steps are in no way a guarantee for success, but one of them lacking is a guarantee for failure.

In the end it's mostly about the end cost for the user, and I wish that MS had been willing to take a higher loss instead of propagating the kinect cost onto the customer.

mattdillahunty  +   336d ago
you guys are looking at this too rationally. this isn't about which is the better deal or which will save you more money. i think this is more about Microsoft trying to align their brand with another brand.

take Call of Duty for example. most people know it's also on PS3, but CoD is still synonymous with Xbox 360 and XBL nowadays. this is because MS took steps to align themselves with the brand. so when your average person thinks, "hey, i want to get a console and play some Call of Duty," there's a good chance they think 360. right or wrong, for better or worse, this is what they've done.

and it looks like this is what they're also trying to do with Fifa. it's a massive franchise in certain parts of the world, and having it be synonymous with a console could be huge for Microsoft. whether or not they're able to pull it off is still in question, but i think that's what their goal is, at least for the launch.

I believe someone asked for a fair comparison so here goes:

PS4=$399
XBO=$499

Games: Xbox One has 23 launch games and PS4 has 33. Very many of the big games are the same on both consoles. PS4 has more indie support, 5 great free to play games, and the only motion game is the playroom which comes with the console (although I don't really count this as a proper game, more of a tech demo). A few of the Xbox games are motion only. Shovelware. No real gamer should care for these crappy games.

Add Xbox live, PS+, the PS4 camera and an Xbox one play and charge kit and you have this:

PS4 = $510 with 8 games to play straight off (driveclub, resogun and the 5 free to plays + doki doki universe)

XBO = $580 and 1 game (killer instinct with one character).

If you were to theoretically get FIFA free with Xbox one in the US, PS4 would still be cheaper if you bought it.

@TrueNinja And yet you were all screaming with glee last week when the unnecessary forced use was removed. What was it again "CONSOLE WITHOUT KINECT INBOUND!!!!!" lol.
Now we are back to the Kinect camera that is great yet it wasn't even on the front cover of Halo 4 or Gears of War Judgement, the only 2 games you got since.......... well GOW3 in 2011 really.
And did anybody cry when the purple banner of death "Better with Kinect" wasn't sprawled on the boxart of those titles? No because even Microsoft were terrified to put it on those 2 games, the last games for the only hardcore gamers left on 360.
Here is to another 6 years of Halo and Gears every single year. Halo 5 Winter 2014 confirmed.

That 23 is still including the crappy kinect shovelware games, a F2P and numerous indie titles. Both consoles have 3 full exclusive disc-based titles.

And yes, you would argue with the OFFICIAL list of 33 with absolutely no merit wouldn't you?

@ DinoNYC

You do realise that Ryes Son Of Rome, Dead Rising 3, Battlefield 4, Project Spark, Forza 5 to name but a few all have Kinect integration

BUT hey noob keep pretending that it is Kinect 1.0 and NOT 2.0 that is bundled with the X1.

Cheers mate

Back on topic the reason acknowledging the camera is not pointless is simply so that a fair (you all do know what that means right) comparison can be made.

Because the last time I checked $399.00 + $120.00 (for game and PS Eye) comes to $519.00 which would make it more than getting the X1 with Kinect 2.0 included plus free copy of Fifa for $500.00.

I don't know maybe math has changed since I was at school but $399.00 for PS4 + one PS Eye $60.00 + copy of Fifa $60.00 hmmmmm nope still comes to $519.00

But hey we don't want to be fair do we, we just want to justify to ourselves that this is not a good deal and spin it any way we can so that it appears that we are correct and the MS fanboys and us X1 trolls are wrong.

ma1asiah  +   337d ago
Ok I apologise for my ignorance (bloody stupid Kiwi lmao)

Yes I do know that this is an exclusive deal for those who reside in Europe.

However as I do not know what the the X1 and the PS4 plus the PS Eye and a copy of FIFA are worth in euro's. I just thought it would be easier to make my point using US currency as I thought it would be easier to convey.

Still if someone can prove me wrong and show me using euro's that even with the PS Eye included that the PS4 would still work out cheaper then I will happily accept peoples argument.

Please don't bring into the argument the whole but I don't want the PS Eye and SONY are not forcing it on us BS. All I am after is a FAIR comparison that proves that what MS is trying to do with bundling a free copy of FIFA with every X1 pre ordered is not better than buying a PS4, a PS Eye and a copy of FIFA separately in Europe.

Theres something crucial that people are forgetting and that is the fact that Fifa 14 is a temporary bundle for preorders in Europe. Which means once its gone the price for an XBOX One with Fifa 14 will be 559€ again versus the PS4 at 459€ which is a 100€ difference in price.

Thats the truth.
nightsurge  +   337d ago
But if you want to do this comparison that Sony is trying to make, you would have to add the price of the camera to have actual matching offerings. System + Game + Camera = $500 Xbox One vs $520 PS4 (US prices since I don't know European conversions).

Granted, not a huge difference at all, but neither is $460 for PS4 + game vs $500 for Xbox One + game.

All these back and forth comments between Sony and MS are interesting to watch, but in the end it all comes down to what each individual gamer's wants and needs are. Price is a big factor, but not always the biggest as we've seen in PS3 vs Xbox 360.

Yeah, Killzone and Ryse may b added bonuses but most want either a betylter deal, a better machine or most likely want to play with their friends.

that silly camera will ruin the xbox. console is good! price tag too high.. i think $100 isnt a big deal, the general population thinks otherwise. soon one kid will get a cheaper ps4, then his friend will pick one up to play online together, then the next... Market share is evermore important this generation, I don't think people realize that. online gaming has now taken center stage so everybody is gonna want to get what their friend's got

The problem with kinect is that so far from what we have seen it's not offering anything new gameplay wise. We know it's a massive upgrade from the last one with with the crazy amount of sensors, improved camera and mics etc and accurate tracking but it terms of gameplay elements there is nothing new. Is kinect functionality going to even be in Fifa? Will people actually want to use it?

The only new thing we have seen so far is in Dead rising 3 with zombies reacting to the noise picked up by the kinect.

If you want to use kinect for anything else other than gaming you will need a XBL sub (Skype, facecam via twitch not confirmed just an assumption).

So with that said is it fair to force people to pay an experience they don't feel is a game changer or care for motion controls due to reasons stated above because at the end of the day the kinect started life as an optional peripheral an should say that way in my eyes.

popup  +   336d ago
Although I am not complaining, I think that it is very odd that the PS4 is cheaper than the Xbox.

Sony have engineered a more powerful product into a smaller space and managed to include the PSU within the product. Also, when comparing their predecessors, there was an obvious difference in build quality between the two that I think Sony deserved credit for.

It would be nice if everyone around here actually had some respect for other peoples choice of platform and showed some humility by praising what aspects of the other platform are impressive and even admitting a little jealousy on those things you can't have as, unless you have alot of spare time and money, there is no way you can enjoy everything that gaming can ultimately give.

Hicken  +   336d ago
It was supposed to be a great piece of hardware last time, and they still haven't SHOWN it to be great yet, particularly in core gaming, which is who's gonna be buying these things at launch. As of now, it's just an added expense.

Not like the 360 headset was much better, and the XB1 headset is a lot like that. PLUS there's the big fact that whatever headset you bought for your PS3 will work on PS4, while the same isn't true for XB1... unless you pay Microsoft for an adapter.

Good job trying to deflect, though.
showtimefolks  +   336d ago
that ps3 headset will work

oh also you can change the hard drive

also you don't need plus to use cross game chat

also you don't need plus to record gameplay or watch netflix

so free to play doesn't require plus

so yeh enjoy your damn kinect 2 while we will actually enjoy some real games and features

RYSE was a kinect game now its not that's how much confidence MS has in kinect, no one will ever use kinect 2 to what its capable of, so you are basically paying extra $100 for nothing

How can people actually sit there and disagree 211 times with SEPTIC???

FACT: The initial cost may be higher than PS4 but you have to remember the Kinect 2 is included in the bundle

FACT: Playstation 4 DOES NOT include the MOVE

FACT: At this point in time you do not get FIFA 14 or any other triple rated high profile game with the PS4 (although this may be subject to change, production has clearly started already)

To say this does not make up the price difference is ridiculous. I would love any of you to show me how you will get a digital FIFA 14 and MOVE for $100

FACT: You won't be able to brand new.

I think there are a few blind PS3 fanboys out there that are distinctly blindsided still from Microsofts original DRM presentation which simply NO LONGER EXISTS! THINGS HAVE MOVED ON AND YOU NEED TO RECOGNISE THAT.

How do you figure the ps4 being cheaper when Xbox One w/kinect and Fifa = $499 then with ps4 ($399) + Fifa ($60) + ps eye ($60) = $519... I'm no math major but it's clear based on that, Xbox is cheaper
NextGen24Gamer  +   336d ago
Not only is the xbox one less than the ps4 with your simple math....But you can't even compare the ps 720p eye toy with the 1080p kinnect 2.0....Not just the obvious difference, but there are a plethora of differences too long to list!

Clear choice for serious gamers!
NextGen24Gamer  +   336d ago
yea but can you buy a ps4, fifa, 1080p Kinnect 2.0, Forza, Ryse, TitanFall, Dead Rising, and Halo?

Oh yea, for those that say that NOBODY wants Kinnect....You are wrong. I wouldn't call 25 million gamers who purchased kinnect 1 as an add on is NOBODY!

While that is only 1/3 of the user base, it's simply because add ons by nature don't sell 1 to 1.

How did Sony's eye toy do btw? LOL...LOL.... 10,000 units maybe?

That would explain why SONY FANBOYS yell so loudly about "WE DON'T WANT THE CAMERA"...That would explain why the cheaply made eye toy didn't do well as an ADD ON!

I know xbox 360 owners who never bought another controller let alone a 150 dollar add on....But, yet 25 million gamers did just that...

By MS packing it in and improving it 10 fold, it gives the xbox one a distinct advantage over the ps4.

The Kinnect 2.0 stand alone would be at least 200 to 250 on it's own. The xbox one would be 400 on it own without the camera....

So even when you buy the xbox one with kinnect 2.0, you are getting a system realistically worth 600 to 650...then you throw in a free game.

Thanks Microsoft, true gamers get it!

Eddie20101  +   336d ago
Xbox 360 Kinect has had many games made specifically for it and most were not very fun to play. Being forced to buy the Kinect will not automatically mean that there will be lots of good games being made for. the nature of it makes it a niche kinda thing like 3D or playing with a glove(no pun intended)

Honestly who really wants to talk to there TV that's what people and pets are for, besides its much easier and less intrusive to just push a button.

The last thing I want to see is a bunch of adolescent kids having a tantrum because the Kinect didn't understand what they said or the game doesn't move in the direction there body told it to.

I do really like Sony, and both them and MS have been trading blows back and forth for quite some time now... Though I do think they should lighten up on MS. I mean, they've already got a clear advantage for next-gen. Shoot, they even beat MS out this gen despite a year late start.

I understand competition is a good thing, but it's starting to come off as a bit unprofessional at times. Maybe that's just me thinking that way though...

Either way, I love some of the GIFs this next-gen reveal has spawned. Whether you're going for the One, the 4, or both... The next-gen is looking bright for consoles.
sinncross  +   337d ago
Lighten up on MS? You mean the same company that tries to run down Sony almost every single month?

The truth of the matter is that Sony, at least at Gamescom is just saying the honest truth.

Competitors changed polices while Sony was consistent. - this is a fact that not even MS cannot deny.

PS4+ FIFA14 cheaper than X1 F14 bundle - another fact that MS cannot deny.

There is nothing unprofessional about any of this... facts are facts.

@ sinncross and Narutone66 - That's exactly what I'm talking about... So what if Microsoft did those things to Sony? That just shows how unprofessional THEY are. Sony and Microsoft should stop stooping down to such a low level. A little jab every once in a while is fine, but when you start repeatedly attacking your competitor like that, it just comes off as slightly pathetic to me...

I'm a PC guy, but I definitely plan on picking up a PS4. I'm still a little unsure on the Xbox One. They've done a good job of reversing a lot of the horrid policies they had. (I wouldn't have touched that thing with a ten foot stick before.) Though I know that wasn't out of the kindness of their hearts. Can't wait to see how next-gen plays out though.

I don't think pointing out a fact is the same as running MS down, though. There's no reason why Sony shouldn't tell consumers that the cost of the PS4 plus the game is cheaper than their competition. It's a strong selling point.
Snookies12  +   337d ago
@AceofStaves - Oh I'm not talking about just this. They've poked jabs at MS quite a few times lately that weren't entirely necessary. I'm fine with people disagreeing with me. I used to be rather harsh toward MS, and still dislike a lot of their practices. I just think Sony could take a higher ground than this. It just feels childish to me personally. Despite how much I like Sony's consoles. I'm probably putting my own feelings into this too much. These two companies may be rivals vying for the consumer's money, but they don't have to lash out at each other to win support. I really dislike those that they try to rally people by putting something or someone else down, even if they deserve it. Focus on your own strengths, that's what should come first and foremost. Then again, maybe I'm just naive thinking that way... I just don't want Sony getting too full of themselves and going astray. Especially when they've been doing really great lately.

I don't see a problem with it, especially in cases like this, where it's just stating the truth. It might be blunt, but I don't think it's unprofessional. Sometimes you have to point out your advantages, and the only way to do that effectively is by contrast.

And MS couldn't possibly be a more deserving company of comparisons like this. They build entire advertising campaigns around this stuff. Not just comparisons, but outright mockery. They had that whole "Scroogled" campaign, and they use a talking iPad in their Windows tablet commercials.

FIFA addition does add better value to the overall package. It is still more expensive than the PS4 and game alone, but there is the Kinect that is included in the box. Yeah, yeah, I know a lot you don't care about Kinect, but it is there and it is a part of the console. with the free game and the included headset, the 500 dollar asking price doesn't seem as bad. Of course, if you've already made up your mind that you aren't interested in what Kinect has to offer, then the 459 PS4 and gameprice is definitely going to be more appealing.

Do your math right? Looks like you need to learn math in general. This won't be including tax of course.

PS4 = $399.99

+

Fifa 14 = $59.99

+

PS Eye = $59.99

Equals a total of $519.97 for the PS4.

Xbox One = $499.99, $99.99 of that being Kinect. You can't even buy a refurbished Xbox 360 Kinect for less than $69.99 and brand new ones are about $99 which is still more than the PS4's PS Eye.

Fifa 14 = $59.99

Equals a total of $559.98 for the Xbox One.

Now lets include both PS+ and Xbox Live to both of the prices and the PS4 is still cheaper.

PS4's total of $519.97 including PS+ which cost $49.99.

Equals $569.96 for the PS4, with Fifa 14, a PS Eye and PS+.

Xbox One's total of $559.98 including Xbox Live which costs $59.99.

Equals $619.97 for Xbox One with Kinect, Fifa 14 and Xbox Live.

So you really need to learn to do your math period. No matter how you look at it, the Xbox One cost more no matter what. Actually with the extra money you would save buying a PS4 instead, that is about enough extra money for another game besides Fifa 14 which is all you would get with the Xbox One while still paying for more.

ceedubya - I can respect that, i was just curious why some people wanted it. You have a family and children, I do not. So for me that's a huge difference.

gnothe - Not really sure when I said "I speak for the majority" I asked a simple question. I can respect other's opinions. The theme seems to be that those with families and children find the kinect really cool. I don't have that so for me it's a bit different.

optional is better along with the nice affordable price of the console. Some xbox fanboys just will never understand. Microsoft while doing one of there many 180s with the xbox one announced you can turn the camera off now and won't be forced to use it while playing the console so why are they still forcing there consumers to buy it?

next up is MS removing kinect from being mandatory in the box
come on MS

competition is stiff!!
LeCreuset  +   337d ago
He has a point. I don't mean about the price. That's just "duh." I mean about the pre-orders. Is this really where M$ wants to be right now? This FIFA deal is only for pre-orders. They're having to throw money into including a game for pre-order customers in a territory that favors Sony anyway. For what? Just to get more pre-orders? Sony almost has too many pre-orders. How does this help Xbone compete in the long run?

Sony can be cheap now, great. People underestimate the importance of every X1 coming with Kinect.

I'll bet within this gen developers will be offering experiences coupled with Kinect that you can't do anywhere else. Coupled with the fact that Oculus Rift is picking up a ton of momentum and the X1 (Phil Harrison stated) already has high speed ports capable of supporting it.

How long will it be until you get a game that combines the Rift, controller and Kinect for the ultimate experience? The Kinect came late to the 360 and I don't doubt at all eventually Micro will look to do something with Oculus tech.

They've already had it playing Skyrim on the 360 with the first Kinect. So, Sony comes in cheaper cause Micro is including the Kinect but because of that things, to me, look brighter than just POWER.

Your comment history says alot.

No, I actually speak with logic. You, on the other hand...

Well your history speaks for itself. I sense a degree of anger in your comments btw.

You must've only seen the comments you wanted to see then. Logic is subjective....anger, hardly. This is fun, debating is fun...anger is saved for more important things. Thanks though : )

if microsoft ever make an sku without the camera it will truly be an xbox 180
its the only decision left to reverse.and if they do they'll be made fun of for not sticking to their plan.lol

MS's mandotory kinect is BS

if it was a 399$ with fifa it would be a great deal
T2  +   337d ago
I agree but im still waiting on specs too ... I had to agree that kinect 2 at least set xbone apart even tho I wasnt interested ... Without any peripherals xbone may just be a watered down ps4 specs may still play a role

I haven't seen mud slinging this bad since the obama vs mitt romney campaign. -_- Sony seriously needs to grow up.
theWB27  +   337d ago
Hey, while Sony fans laugh it up, they see what happens when Sony dominates. They're ahead now, launch hasn't come, and they're already reverting back to the cocky Sony.
jimmywolf  +   337d ago
i am a Sony supporter but it be foolish too not see Microsoft brought this on themselves, they got cocky with their greed, while Sony had too play catch up.

so little gloating now that Sony pulled ahead an is shining, is fine by me.

lmfao 'grow up', seriously? This wasn't even a dig this time.. All they did was state a fact...just because it ends up being in Sony favour doesn't make it less true. Stop being bitter, this is business, friend.

Lmfao, wow. So Sony stating obvious facts is mud slinging? You guys weren't saying anything when Microsoft was doing the actual trashtalking, right?

It is and how much do you recon fifa, psn+ and a PS4 are gonna run you?
WhiskyWhiskers  +   337d ago
Someone already has added that all up above. The PS4 is cheaper bottom line, no spinning can be done to justify otherwise.

Do the math yourself if you don't believe the people who already have.

"$569.96 for the PS4, with Fifa 14, a PS Eye and PS+."

vs.

"$619.97 for Xbox One with Kinect, Fifa 14 and Xbox Live."

Of course it is even cheaper because the PS Eye is not mandatory that it be sold with every PS4. Even still though if you choose to buy the PS Eye with your PS4, it is cheaper.

Sony rolling in the heavy artillery. This console war is very entertaining, and I've never seen this much smack talk since Sega Saturn era.

Jumps into the Ps4 Tank..*aims canon at xbone*... The rest is history.
sak500  +   336d ago
The rest is history? The same ps3 story is getting repeated here. You sdf people were thronging n4g prior to 360 launch claiming ps3 will kill MS's dream of ever getting a successful console. Started with sony hyping ps3 to high heavens and what not and yet we saw what happened. MS survived and too 80million users away from sony.

Same doom gloom stories are now coming out of $ony camps and you idiots drinking it's koolaid infecting n4g again.

Can't wait to see xb1 kicking ps4's @ss again coming gen.

"we’re talking unprecedented levels of pre-orders that we haven’t seen in 20 years in this business.”

Now that's saying something.
