Resetting the Console Wars - Xbox One and PlayStation 4 Get a Fresh Start

The upcoming generation of consoles, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 specifically, feel a bit like an old school console war. The mud slinging, slight of hand, and jabs between Sony and Microsoft remind us of Nintendo and Sega from the Genesis and SNES era. But are fans sticking in the corner of their favorite console manufacturer?

I don't know about the community poll...but I do know..

- with a more powerful console in the mix from launch @ $399USD,
- very good pre-order numbers,
- no FUD articles from the press or looming format war to contend with,
- and an on time launch this time,

it seems awfully apparent to me that one camp has made every effort to end this "war" before it even begins.

The PS4 doesn't need a fresh start, it got everything right the first time and doesn't need to copy itself. It doesn't need a redo, a do-over, a reset, a second chance to make a first impression, an overclock, a re-unveiling, games packed in or change anything in to attempt to be competitive. Everyone wants one already for what it is....... a better system for less money.

The PS4 is powered by specs, confidence and talent. Not dreams, aspirations, gymnastics and theoretical equations.

Sony did not have a good start with the PS3. They came out a year later with a console that was significantly more expensive than the Xbox and had a serious problem with its game library. Multi-platform games usually look better on the Xbox because it was easier to develop for. In the US, Xbox consistently outsells the PS3. And yet, after 7 years, the PS3 has outsold Xbox globally. That's one hell of a comeback.
It'll be interesting to see how things turn out when they are both launching at the same time.

So far so good the Ps4 is the gamers ultimate console. After all it will be the most powerful video game console when its released. (Will also be cheaper than its less powerful competitor)
