PS4 favored at Dragon Con ‘Console Wars’ panel but Xbox One most discussed

XMNR: Dragon Con hosted a video game panel Sunday that packed an Atlanta, GA Hilton Hotel conference room to the point that some attendees had to sit on the floor. The hot topic was the console wars between the PS4 and Xbox One where the PS4 was the most favored next-gen console by those in the room but the conversation primarily revolved around the Xbox One. (PS4, Xbox One)

Of course the Xbox One was the most discussed.
- There is alot to say about it.
- Microsoft isn't good at talking about it themselves.

Of course the PS4 was favored.
- It's pretty much better at everything, if you feel like that's incorrect feel free to speak up.

@ Mystogan

I don't like to get into those really petty battles.

But who needs skype while gaming? PS4 players will have free cross chat accross different platforms (PS Vita) and game streaming. Why on Earth would any need skype on top of all that.

Not to mention that PS4 has skype for free, and not behind a pay wall like some other console.

And dedicated servers? Maybe you should get a PS3 and experience it for a little bit instead of waiting for November.

Cmon dude...

How's Xbox -1 not gonna be the most discussed? It's the most hated console of all time.

Xbox One discussions only happen for laughs.


How pathetic are you? Don't like facts huh? Funny you're being manhandled by a girl.

-This is true, Sony doesn't have 300,000 dedicated servers, but they have a lot.

-I don't multitask, I play games..

-PS4 has group chat, no need for skype, the only reason to have skype is to talk to people that aren't on the console, which why would you do that while playing?

-No one cares about launch titles, they are basically prettier last gen games, the real good ones come later, and BTW Sony only has like, 2 or 3 less...

-*than, and I think I speak for most gamers, but MOTION CONTROLS SUCK, and everything cool the Xbox does so does PS4 pretty much...

-Voice controls,really? I like to use a controller, because I would be using the voice commands to get to a game that USES A CONTROLLER!!!! (ahem, sorry about that..)

-I will admit, PlayStation doesn't have Halo, You got me there, time to cancel my pre order to get the Xbox for Halo, sorry Uncharted, Killzone, Grand Turismo, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, The Order 1886, DriveClub, Beyond Good and Evil, Deep Down, and many other unannounced titles.. I need Halo, and that is final... Come on people, really...

@maria...whos a dude?

Specs: PS4 (yes ps4 is powerful on paper and so was the ps3,we see how played out,also can't wait till microsoft reveals whats in there system once the gag order is removed on 9/29/13)

Multiplats:XBOX ONE (based off xbox live dedicated servers and "better with kinect" features)

Restrictions: Both (not sure how you had ps4 when the policies are the exact same....)(using n4g as a source lol)

F2P: Both (f2p is what it is f2p)

Price: PS4 (the ps4 is cheaper yes,but i see the xbox one as a better value so price isnt an issue for me,but ill leave the ps4 thee to be fair i suppose)
shadyiswin  +   225d ago
Exclusive Devs: Both (you can not use last gens developers as a reference for this gen,otherwise xbox having rare would destroy all,whos to say santa monica or naughty dog will deliver anything amazing? just like xboxs studio black tusk,they want us to be excited,i am waiting on games,at the end of the day microsoft will be pumping million into exclusive games,millions sony doesn't have.

TV: XBOX ONE (PS4 does not require your cable box) i love how you try to fix this up lol,the ps4 does not have live tv,what it will have (cause as of right now it has nothing) it has a deal to bring viacom networks to sonys platforms,viacom doesnt equate to live tv,it is mtv vh1 and other channels,on top of that microsoft just struck a deal with time warner to bring 300 LIVE CHANNLES to xbox live on top of having the HDMI pass-thur,get your facts straight.

Camera w/ Voice Recognition: XBOX ONE,yeah not both lol,the ps camera voice controls are an after though,it will not be useful at all,not sure why we kid ourselves. People love to give to kinect crap,my kinect works perfectly when i say pause and play,xbox on is the command ill use most,xbox on,xbox music,play playlist. Cant wait.

Preorders: PS4 (ps4 deff has this one,but keep in mind preorders dont mean anything,an early indication of sales,but we dont know allotments,we dont know how many shipments each will get in befoe xmas,a game like cod does 2 million preorders yet it sells 5 million in week one,pre orders mean nothing and the sources are never accurate,im sure walmarts,bestbuy and so on places preorders are not counted.

Polls: ??? (Polls on what? launch titles?controllers? online?)

Recording Time: ??? yes the ps4 can record for longer,also in 720p it goes from 15 mins to 7,and does the ps4 allow voice and video overlays? i would give this to xbox one but ill be fair and say we cant decide just yet

Friendlist: ??? the xbox friends list is infinite,you can follow people that are not friends,so there is no cap.

Countries Available: PS4

Headset Options: ??? ( Ps4 how so?)
shadyiswin  +   225d ago
Controller: XBOX ONE not sure why people have an issue with the battery pack being removable,just how i refuse to buy a phone a with a internal battery I'd much prefer to have the OPTION to change my battery. I forgot about the controllers themselves lol,every review i seen has said the same exact story,the ps4 is much improved(weird i thought the dual shock was perfect?lol) but the xbox one controller feels better,of course this all preference,but weird to see it be preferred something like 7:1

Indie Support: PS4? really? cause xbox live is where people go to publish,think of apple,xbox live is where the money is at,a community of over 50 million strong,if you think indies are going to avoid xbox live you are silly,but we already know your silly lol

Consistency: PS4?? those links mention nothing about consistency lol,i read one and the guy goes on to say "if the xbox was sold without the kinect,i'd still buy the version with kinect" some like dude lol,do you even read these links or do you hope when we see a link we will assume it's instant validation lol on top of that the xbox is a console made to be on for 10 years,sounds very consistent.

Previous Console Support: PS4 backwards support is just that backwards,ill have my xbox 360 for another year for xbox 360 games. let's see how the PSN handle streaming games,i predict a laggy mess

Number Of Launch Games: PS4..... 33 games for ps4 to xbox ones 23,about 20 of ps4 are no name indie games other than mindcraft which will be funny to watch as no one cares about minecraft on the ps4 but will sell millions on xbox one ....quality over quantity people.

in closing you are not even a good troll,or honest one,some topics you could of left out to make it appear less bias (camera,headset,tv,restriction s) i do preorders at my job and while its something like 2:1 for ps4 i find it weird that almost every xbox one pre order is with a game and controller,while the ps4 is just the console. The ps4 is cheaper so i'd figure people would spring for a game. To be fair we only allow preorders on killzone:sf,drive club and knack,cant blame anyone for not picking one,most ps4 ppl will be on cod,bf and fifa. Keep in mind preorders get cancelled and switched, the vital point will come when people can demo the consoles in the store,i predict a lot of people cancelling there ps4 preorders,that along with a marketing blitz from microsoft will make it much closer than N4G thinks.

corvusmd  +   225d ago
Alright Maria, you win, I thought for the longest time that everything you said was fact-less opinionated garbage, but since you posted the same lame opinionated crap again...you've proven me wrong. This whole time I thought gaming was about actually enjoying games, but no, you've shown me the errors of my ways...I can't do what I find fun, it HAS to be according to what Sony and all her enslaved fanboys say. How dare me make up my own mind according to what makes me happy?!?!?!? What is this, a free society? No, we don't have time for this nonsense. Everyone must conform to Sony's standards, because they aren't gonna save themselves from bankruptcy, we have to make them a monopoly so that they can then impose whatever restrictions they want...like when they were considering DRM (I actually don't think it's a horrible idea if done rightm but those three letters scare the hell out of sony fanboys).

Your opinion is 100% right and should be made into law. All the things that XB1 does well, should be instantly dismissed as gimmicky and not mattering....who cares about quality online gaming, smooth quick running operating systems, top selling exclusives, and innovation without losing proven methods....that should all be done away with....all hail sony!!! On paper the PS4 GPU is faster than the XB1 GPU...ignore all other console specs...this alone means that XB1 games look horrible and NES looks better....games aren't about fun, they are about playing the ONE game that looks the best at any given moment and hating all others. I should cancel my GTA 5 preorder and sell Last of Us, cause once the PS4 games come out...those will instantly be garbage.

I really wish now I didn't sell my soul to MS, I could have bought a PS4 too if I decided to...don't worry, since I'm in their system now I'll put in a good word for you to make sure that you don't have to buy an XB1 too...run, run away...save yourself....

And there's more.. But that's enough...

Although I agree with the first part... There really is no sony news and Microsoft is releasing info... so naturally people are talking about it

And lota of changes have been made lately.. Its easy to announce a reversal, its another to make it happen.. Updated news is trickling out slowly
mcstorm  +   225d ago
@MariaHelFutura that is your opinion its not a fact. Some people will like the ps4 the most some the xbox one and some the Wiiu.

Most people who buy one of the 3 consoles will not give a crap which has more power or looks the best. They will buy it because it has the most games they want for it. So depending on what games your into depends which one is best for you.

If you go for power then I take it this is only your 2nd Sony home console as the psx and ps2 had less power than what the others offered.

You lot really need to give it a rest now its really getting old seeing the same fan boy comments on here about the pa4 having more power.
Loki86  +   225d ago
Maria your stealth troll act is getting old. Both consoles have their strengths and weaknesses. The amount of trolls on this site has just exploded and people getting 50-60 agrees for posting an unintelligible post just because it hates on the X1, so embarrassed to be part of this community because no one can maintain non-biased discussions or post their thoughts logically without taking a shot at the competition.

Also the kid who said dedicated servers on PS3, that is dev based not console based.

there is something special about ps4 but i cant put my finger on it...

it feels like its enclosed in Son Goku's Spirit Ball that anything negative thrown at it instantaneously vanishes in thin air....

ps4 is some kind of overwhelming pure positive energy that cannot be destroyed

ps4 is really something very very special

its on a whole new level of greatness or league

i will be following its history on how it will change everything inside and outside the industry from now on

i have a feeling it will be greater than the PSOne, PS2, PS3 or any game console ever created by man...

Arguing/debating is what people do. Usually when people don't want to argue, they have no argument. So, if someone wants an Xbox One, great. But the doesn't change the FACTS, it's not as good as the PS4 at basically everything and it's less expensive. I'm confident enough to have that debate w/ anyone.

He is not. The 360 have 2 exclusive franchises left. Halo and Gears. Everything else is playable on PC or PS3. The only reason someone should get a 360 over PS3 in it's early days was its pricetag.

But now with the xbox1 I can't understand why anyone would rather get that than PS4. Remember this gen, when 360 had lots of launch games? Then what? Nothing! Same thing will happen this gen, prnt screen this comment please.

The xbox one can be $100 more but the sheer fact that it has atleast 1 game i want at launch validates my purchase. I would not buy an xbox one for halo 5 cause its not hear yet,but you have many getting a ps4 for uncharted 4 and last of us 2 lol,kind of ridiculous.
theWB27  +   225d ago
People who buy consoles off of popularity ain't really buying it for right reason. Being negativity towards something has never stopped me from making my own choice, I'm still good with the X1.

Bad PR. Ok. I think the DRM 180 is hurting them more than they're letting on. There was SOME truth to when Major Nelson said they can't just flip a switch. This is the result of flipping it anyway.

The system isn't broken, none of the "added later features" affect my place of dwelling...it's still a go come launch.
jimmywolf  +   225d ago
"People who buy consoles off of popularity ain't really buying it for right reason."

agree with the statement but people are praising PS4 an dismissing X box, for more then just fan boy reasons.

Microsoft has been doing a good job trying fix their mistakes but they proved all too willing, that wanted money first, gamer second.

too try an cover that up because you still want one is foolish. as consumers, we should be thought of first, not a afterthought of a product.

theWB27  +   225d ago
What did I try and cover up? I was purchasing a X1 even with the DRM. Nothing they announced then affected me.

Look, I let other people get into the sad stuff about being mistreated and not cared for. Gaming doesn't affect me on a personal level...it's a leisure product...enjoyment. Just like movies. I'm not going to boycott Avengers 2 cause it looks like Tony Stark will be the creator of Ultron instead of Henry Pym.

Does the X1 play games...yes. It plays the games I want. Everything works where I live. Bad PR and bad for the industry blah crap...I really honestly don't care.

I don't have anything to cover up. I don't care about the extra stuff that gets people emotional....it's a toy that doesn't affect my life if something goes wrong....so I'll play where I want to. I can't get any clearer than that.

That's what happend with the 360. MS build popularity for a whole year in the market for themselves and got away even with charging people to play online. This time is different and everyone knows MS f'ed up ways of doing things and the competition is releasing at the same time. If this was the case back in 2005 when the 360 released, we wuould've seen a lot of 180 from MS just like it is now.

There is no console better than the other. That's like saying Android OS is better than IOS. It's user preference. I buy both PS and Xbox because I like games, no matter what console they're on. Just because you prefer one console over the other doesn't make it better.

And no company considers the customer before their profits. That's not good business. People need to stop saying such nonsense as "Sony cares for gamers." Unless you're 10 years old, I don't know how people believe that. Name me one company that puts their own profits second to the customer. It's all about the customers giving them money. If there was no profit in gaming, there wouldn't be a Playstation.

Sony took losses for years by selling PS3 at that price, so I'm not real sure what your point is...?
theWB27  +   225d ago
Why did Sony take losses for years? Because they included the brand new Bluray. A product they had a vested interest in and needed to succeed as the defacto high def disc..

That losing money crap is bogus...they all lose money on consoles. Except Nintendo now. But Sony n Micro both don't make a lot of money off of the actual hardware sales.

Or Microsoft could have released a cheap a$$ online that created one helluva security breach and left how many millions of personal info out there?

Despite what the both of you think...including bluray made the PS3 that expensive. The same ony has stake in and was a brilliant way of getting that product to stick.

Don't act like they lost money for you, they lost money for bluray and now it's the only high def disc available.

Micro includes a Kinect in order to push it.
Sony included Bluray to push it.
Both raised the prices of the consoles.

They could have launched the PS3 for 850 dollars, the price it cost to actually make the PS3. Instead they lost 250 for every console sold.

Yeah they cared about the customer.

They could have also sold a cheap a$$ console they had major issues like the 360 RROD.

Hey but when Sony does announce that stuff...PS Fanboys act like it's the greatest thing ever and it's brand new....clearly showing they have no clue what they are talking about....it's all about which exclusives you want to play, and what you want your online experience to be like...THAT'S IT. The rest is really just the fact that Sony and her fanboys are doing a much better smear campaign, and that plays well with young immature gamers.... I feel bad that MS will lose these customers initially, but I will enjoy that time on XBL without them while it lasts.

It's funny how Xbox fanboys try to convince themselves (and the others) that the Xbox One is better cause of TV, services and a whole bunch of useless things. I remember when people bought a game console for the games and their quality, not because of Skype (????? Damn, it's free everywhere, i have to get an expensive console and PAY to use it??) or TV or all that crap that has to be EXTRA and not the main dish.
Sorry but i won't never justify a $499 console for all those accessory things. If i want a media center i buy a better PC, in some cases is cheaper and a lot more powerful. For playing and for the games i prefer my PS4 (i say "my" since i've already paid it and i feel like it's already mine =P)
