I'd give the camera w/ Voice recognition to Xbox, because it actually comes with the console. Not many people are going to buy the PS Eye, thus nobody is going to add PS Eye features to their games after the first few games
One thing I don't get is the "all of a sudden" Microsoft don't support indies when Xbox live has a dedicated indie section :/
i'm buying the pseye because i wanna broadcast my games on ps4 with my friends or get that KZ bundle with the pseye and two controllers if it comes to the US. either way the eye was always on my list.
@MariaHelFutura... you are too funny. fight on my friend
@hennessey86: Always thought that their idea of support was about getting revenue from creators and gamers and being able to say they have content without really having any concern what that content was. Which was why they got complaints about advertising on XBL from advertisers.
maria do yourself a favour turn off the pc...is better
All Hail QUEEN MARIA!!! lol this is too funny Xbox Defenders can't handle facts lol one even said give xbox the voice control because the camera is packed in the box grasping for straws lol
Ahhaha. Get a life.
Maria got some bubblez!
just " shutUpAndGiveThemYourMoney "
Yeah Microsoft stumbled themselves, Sony's just on the sideline pointing and laughing Haa Haa!
the only way MS can stood against sony is to make a kinectless SKU, ps4 is outselling xbox one in North America, yes u heard it North America !! let me sum reasons why ms must make kinectless SKU.... 1-ps4 is cheaper, cheaper consoles almost always sell more 2-ps4 is the 1st console in history that is cheaper and NOT WEAKER 3- sony's name 4-ps3 sold with higher rate than xbox 360 5-sony's STRONG rep/momentum after E3 6-Economy 7-too many people aren't interested in kinect and rather have extra game + accessory 8-more freedom is better, 2 SKUs is better than a forced one, u can't have your fierce enemy have that 399$ (sweet spot) alternative
Ms will have a kinectless console. They are just being smart with their cam unlike Sony. Get the hardware out their first and then the support will come. Sony knows if they offered the same package they would get stomped in the US. They are the ones who need this success right out of the gate. They know if they came with an expensive console it would be curtains for them because an e pensive ps4 would hurt the struggling ps vita even more. MS is doing it right . Get kinect out there now and sell as many units as possible so debs will support it. After that drop kinect and sell the console cheaper. Then they will have saturated the market width kinect and will be more competitive. A cheaper xox one will definitely sell because of the advantages in features it holds. This console war isn't just about the launch. This will be a long drawn out thing, just like this gen. I expect ms to still come out the winner in the US regardless. On the other hand Sony has to worry about nintendo''s domination of the vita too. It's not gonna be all roses or Sony the way people are thinking.
If MS drops kinect developers will drop support. They need to stick to their guns on this.
Doesn't matter how many kinects you get out there a lot of people are just never gonna use it.
I wouldn't say MS is going to dominate the US, but I predict around the middle of this upcoming generation, Xbox One will outsell PS4 in the US. Towards the start of the next next generation (PS5 and Xbox Two), PlayStation will have sold more PS4's than Microsoft have sold Xbox One's, simply because Sony will support PS4 after PS5's launch, just like Ps2 and Ps3, and Microsoft will start slowing down support for One a year or two before Two's launch, just like 360.
What? Sell X1 with Kinect so that devs will support it and then release an X1 without a Kinect. That's a good strategy? Dear Lord.
Except that Sony outsold MS even when they were $200 more expensive and had terrible internet at the start of the gen. They gave Xbox a 2 year grace period (the year they weren't out and then their too expensive internet lagging behind year) and yet they have a 600k lead and growing. A man doesn't see how a user thinks they NEEDED to be cheaper. Also $460 gets you a PScamera and PS4. Sony obviously wouldn't make it that weird price so it would still be $50 cheaper and more powerful. The online gap is gone even other than X game chat on current gen so obviously it won't come back with Sony now having established their online and putting up a paywall. The perceived controller gap (though many prefer PS controller) is gone with DS4 making so many improvements. The price gap has swung $300 back to Sony's favor. The release gap has swung a year in Sony's favor. The architecture is now easy for PS so that gap is closed (so now 3rd party plus exclusives look better instead of just exclusives). The exclusive studio gap is still there though as is the online value of Plus compared to Live. Sorry a man doesn't see PS NEEDING price after this gen.
I don't understand why people downplay the playstation brand Never Underestimate The Power of Playstation
Sonys Ps4 is the world heavy weight champion,others are competing for the title shot.
I hoping for good things at TGS from Sony. That would make PS4 so much sweeter lol. Persona 5! TLG! Dark Cloud 3!? We shall see!
would love dark cloud 3
Sony's camera has no chance of being anything but Kinect 1.0 this gen. I support Kinect being packaged in every system. 1st party microsoft games have potential of doing awesome stuff with it. Remains to be seen how multiplatform games will take advantage of it if at all. Microsoft had everything right in the begining and its a shame they have backed out of much of it. They were forward thinking where Sony has not been. As Henry Ford said, "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses." The large majority of people just don't know what is good for them.
Focusing on Kinect is the reason why the xbox has been failing since 2010. http://forums.digitalwarfar...
Yea ok...lol Xbox has been profiting since 2009. Ps3 didn't start till 2011 and ps4 development has wiped those out. Xbox isn't the one that's failing. Who's the one that sold more last gen than this gen? It's not Xbox. Who has the handheld that's not selling right now? Who has the cloud service that ready and available right now that devs are using and gamers will be using on day one of the console launch? Xbox is moving this cloud thing forward while Sony is still behind the curve til 2014 and even then it will only be partially ready by only being available in one country while ms has servers available around the world. The only thing Sony can say is that they have the cheaper price. That's about it. Other than that they hold no advantages. Once xboxone launches and the advertising campaign from ms starts its gonna be even tougher for Sony. When you're only worth 20 billion and your competitor is worth about 15 times that much, that makes things much more difficult. This is gonna be a long and hard fight for both and Sony really needs to one out swinging. They really can't afford not to.
God. poor Belking, getting the wrong end of the stick, yet again. And then continuing to justify why PS4 isn't the number one presence of both consoles at the moment by a devastating landslide - even in Microsoft's home turf - dealing himself fantasies that will most likely help him sleep at night. PS4 is dominating, and needs zero reputation management compared to Microsoft and the Xbox One, which is being stomped in both pre-orders, developer support and public attention and perception, and is still reeling from the self-infliction. And Sony has yet to reveal their hand to the world. "No advantages" pahahhhaha.
well said.. bub for you... i completely agree.. sony used to do the exact same thing.. pushing innovation and things people didnt even know they wanted yet.. they needed a home run to right the ship... and thankfully for them it looks like they have one.. but that doesnt diminish xbox in any way... they are following the tradition as they can afford the risk in doing so @smokingmonkey 31 straight months as the best selling console in the us kinda makes your comment unfounded
Cause the US is the only market right? Fuck me for believing other markets exist right?I should go complain to my geography teacher. I should go call the guys that draw maps and let them know the rest of the world doesn't exist.Get Bloomberg on the phone US is the only market that matters.
no.. but its their market.. guy wants to say xbox has been failing for 3 years.. yet they are #1 for those same 3 years.. and worldwide sales are about even... again.. hardly failing.. but like always, you knew exactly what i was talking about...
Oh woe is me and the little knowledge I have about my wants and desires.I should thank Microsoft for telling me what it is I truly wanted in a gaming console, I thought I knew myself but alas I was wrong.
This article didn't say absolutely nothing that we already knew, what's wrong with gaming journalism and fan boys?
Ps4 is the ultimate. Everybody on this planet knows this.
i really feel bad for bursting your bubble, i know it's great having a private universe but the reality is Xbox one is the same as ps4 but with cloud dedicated servers for almost everygame CoD online will play better on X1, titanfall depends on it, forza 5 uses it, volition and dice see big potential in it, so Xbox one is more complete of a package than ps4, ps4 is great, I'll buy it but it lacks nextgen online gameplay like Xbox one the cold hard truth
Well online gaming for the PS4 is now paid for, so one would imagine that the PS4 wouldn't be far behind the Xbox in that regards.
You know that sony used dedicated servers almost this whole gen for their first party games right?
first party games... like what? killzone 3 sold 2.5m and only supports 8v8.. thats nowhere near providing servers for a cod that sells 5-10x that with a higher player count. sony doesnt have the infrastructure to provide servers on that scale... maybe they will in time if ps+ takes off the way they want it to.. but its not on the horizon
What are you on about, dude says micro is the only one to provide dedicated servers, now all of a sudden its about cod? And you do realise that micro dont have 300,000 servers just yet, they said they will eventualy, go look at the anouncment again. Anyway my point was both console will have dedicated servers, also this whole sony do not have the infrastructure line is getting old, of course they do, also you mention killzone but forget infamous, gt, resistance plus many more online games that use dedicated servers.
PAX is going on right now. Where is the release date MS? Isn't this the last event for them? Or am I mistaken?
I'm getting the eye just to spite Microsoft and anyone who thinks the Xbox one is better than PlayStation.
my parents in law recently purchased a nearly new cream BMW M3 Coupe from only workin on a computer. my company http://9nl.me/qdot/
Bleh I am getting both the PS4 and XBONE - that way I don't miss out on any game.
Sony stumbled at Gamescom. MS is still struggling to reverse their bad press, but things outside of the highly vocal Internet gaming community have gotten much better for them.
