Dealspwn: "The Xbox One makes a hyprocrite out of me. If Microsoft can seal the deal by presenting a united front and a convenient release date, it might even make a customer out of me..."
"What I'd prefer is a console that I can effortlessly control with my voice, access all of my games and videos instantly, browse the net with a single word and multi-task effortlessly between applications... oh. Hello Kinect" That made me laugh... It is a good read..
The kinect has never worked well, it's a gimmick, and now it's a spy camera for micro$ft's partner, the NSA. Have fun yelling at the console over and over trying to get the thing to understand what you're saying and flailing your arms around playing some kinect sports. LOL. The hardcore gamers will either be playing on gaming pc or real exclusives on PS4.
Get over yourself fanboy
I think its a bit early for you to be saying that its rubbish unless you have used it already?? I use the Kinect v1 for head tracking in Forza 4, video chat with my brother overseas and voice control. If you have things set up correctly it works very well. The head tracking in cockpit view is great.
@Animal Mutha 76 But none of those things you use it for actually need a 3D camera. GT5 does head tracking with the PsEye and video chat and voice control just need a webcam and a microphone.
Tinhat.. http://rationalsecurity.typ... Like MS got nothing better to do but watch your fat @ss on a sofa, eating chips. Chilax
I agree. The smoothness and convenience of navigation that kinect 2.0 provides is long overdue and we shouldn't have to deal with the clunky Xbox guide or ps3 xmb ever again.
Buy which ever one you like and feel is a better fit for you. As stated, you already have a PC. So that covers a lot of bases. A PS4 would be for exclusives and exclusive content at this point.
Yeah a PS4 would only be for exclusives at this point. Even when all the multiplats run better on it. </s> -__-
I just laugh at how people disagree with common sense post between two people. Sure it's people hurt from other topics...
Hey I feel the same way, I saw the PS4 and was blown away, but the PS4's launch lineup is very weak at best, I'm not a shooter fan so I was looking for something more Action/RPG based. Xbox One has a better outlook with games like Sunset Overdrive, Titanfall, Quantum Break, new Halo game, Below and much more. In the end though I'll get a PS4 just not at launch.
You of course realise that those games you just listed arent out for the XB1 launch right? By the time you see some of these there will be various PS4 exclusives out too. Never fails to amaze me when people forget to look at MS track record over the last few years. If you want consistent exclusive games over a variety of genres then ask yourself which console has had the best titles over the whole of its life cycle?
Sony do have some interesting Indie games..Of course with 1.84 tflops you'd want better titles to showcase at the start but plenty games in development.
ok let me get this straight you say you are not a shooter fan and the games you have listed are all shooters?????
Xbox-one is a good choice.
Either one is a good choice, if they have the games that you're looking forward to.
yea, but they didn't ask which one was a good choice. It's about him wanting a xbox-one.
I want so much to want an X1. I wish there was a launch game for it that made me scream "F### Yeah!" at the trailer. I wish I could trust MS. I love the controller But I will not be letting my heart rule my head. I'll be playing my PS4 until MS proves they value my business and give me something better than a £400 voice controlled TV remote.
You'll never want to go back... ;)
This is how it will be, you will get all of your movies and stuff downloaded to your Xbox One. You will download the 5 hour day one firmware update. Then after all of this when you think that you can actually play, it will have you try the voice command. You will say, "Xbox Games". Xbox will reply, "Format Hard Drive?". "NOOO!!!!"...... "Formatting hard drive" Suicide rates skyrocket in November. True story from the future
Thanks for coming.
It might be 5 hours if I was stuck downloading it from psn, but not xbl ;)
i know right....lmao, those slow as molasses downloads that sony have...if they can even catch up to the download speeds of the xbox 360 with the ps4 , that will be a great improvement ..because I doubt if it will catch up with the one. the only ONE for that matter....xbox one day one ftw!!!!
Xbox have a 5 hour download time?! My 360's longest download time was 5' min. Ps3 on the other has a download time that can exceed 30 min and that's no lie
Don't fight it I didn't want one during the policies but now that they're gone there's no reason not to get one now especially seeing the exclusives
Lol. You don't have to get xbox one or ps4 at launch guys. whenever you have money and ready for either one
When I saw the ps4 announcement, I was blown away, I saw the Xbox ones announcement and was set back a little. The lack of knowledge what I knew about Xbox made me want a ps4. I wanted to not want one, i wanted to love the ps4 but I couldn't. Gaming with the ps3 was awful, I traded in for an Xbox 360, and fell in love. I'm sure people can relate , they want to not like the Xbox one, but there's no doubt it's the superior console, with great games, online service, interface, new improved kinnect, and much more.
"I Want An Xbox One, But Really Wish I Didn't" Alot of people seem to be thinking the exact same thing! I will pick defiantly pick up an xbone slim at some stage to try out the exclusives for cheap in a few years time though, I did the exact same thing with the PS3!
I'm in a similar frame of mind to Zblacktt and Kuse. I love my 360 and only use my Ps3 for the odd exclusive and as a Blu Ray/Netflix box. All multi plats are on Xbox because most were better and its where my friends are. For the next gen I intend to do the same. I don't want to pay for two online subs so I'll stick with my 6 year Xbox Live tenure and get the Xbox One at launch for Forza 5 and BF4 and the free FIFA 14. I think the Xbox One is really now looking like a strong machine with great features and I like the idea of it having a pass through for my tv and audio equipment. I've also just renewed my XBL Gold for £26 which is a great price and it will allow me to use both XB1 and 360 The launch games for XBox one just look more attractive in my opinion with Forza and Ryse catching my interest in particular. Nothing Sony has really bites me except GT6 but I can play that on my PS3. I like to buy all systems for my collection so will wait into 2014 to get a PS4. If the multi plats turn out to be much better on PS4 and its system software turns out to be as good as Xbox (which I have my doubts) I might switch primary machine to PS4 at that point but that would be the middle of next year once we see If PS4 is as good as they say it is and only If my friends migrate as well. Otherwise My PS4 purchase in 2014 will be for exclusives only. As for my living room my PS3 will be moved from under the TV to make way for my Xbox One as the primary Blu Ray machine and entertainment center. My PS3 will go upstairs into my bedroom so the wife can watch Blu Rays and stream Netflix without using the ipad. Pre ordered my day one edition X1 with FIFA 14 last night from MS direct. The more news I see about the X1 the happier I am with that choice especially after seeing the videos of live gameplay that came out of Gamescom last week.
I picked up 5 years of XBL at $33. I tend to rack up when there are sales. So I'm good for awhile. I can sell them if I leave the XBL community but don't see that happening anytime soon. EDIT: Never auto renew dude..I fell into that trap the first 3 years and started seeing sales on certain sites. XBL can be had for so cheap it's amazing when I used to hear that people can't afford it but eat cheseburgers and starbucks all month. This was a deal 2 months ago. http://gizmodo.com/35-for-a...
Wow that's amazing. I was just being lazy and auto renewing each year but then my friend told me about this site in the UK where you can get good discounts. £25.99 for a 12 month card is a good deal and I got my code within an hour. Nobody needs pay £39.99 for gold in the UK.
I keep beating myself up about which to get. I like them both equally. And the games I really want are all multiplat. Tho I hate what Microsoft has done, I still see a ton of potential in the X1. They got rid of the horrid policies. I could care less about the kinect. It's there I'll use it. The price is alright. I can't complained I paid 600 for the original ps3. And I love the controller. Got to love the fact that they worked hard on it. That and they fixed the d-pad!! It's still up in the air what I will get, but I'm really leaning towards an X1.
The hdmi-in for xONE is genius. I'm actually impressed with an Xbox console, for the first time ever since I've been gaming, I'll be getting an Xbox first. Ryse! We've come a long way with gaming. . . You can't go wrong with either console on day one. Ultimately I'll have both. . As should everyone else, if you love games.
