This seems like a good honest review of the system

Don't you hate how every journalist has to play like they like Playstation just to keep from getting death threats from rabid sony fanboys? This guy had to spend his big opening paragraph pandering to sony loyalists. Shame.

Either way, the author didn't go into much detail about any of the games he played. Wasn't as interesting as it could have been.

Any specific details you'd like to know about one of the games that I might have missed out?

For me I will be getting the Xbox One once when I have the funds.

Pretty much sums up my lock in opinion too. It seriosuly isn't worth £430. The jump from the PS2/Xbox gen to te 360/PS3 gen was far more impressive and noticeable than the 360/PS3 to X1/PS4 gen.

If you have big hands like me, the new controller is a step backwards from the 360. It's more awkward to have you index and middle fingers on the bumpers and triggers at the same time than it is with the 360 controller.

The Dpad is better but I still prefer the DS3 one as it feel more responsive and easier to press.

That and I honestly feel that the rumble triggers are a fad. Every time I braked and they rumbled, I kept looking down. It was really distracting but maybe because I'm not used to it. I still prefer the rumble in the controller itself as it feel more modest and appropriately used.

What would have been good would be resistance triggers.

Also:

"The actual gameplay of the Ryse demo, the multiplayer arena mode, was as if it was taken straight from the Gladiator movie, to the point where I almost shouted “Are you not entertained” after playing it (I said it to myself in my head, and the answer was yes). I looked for button prompts while playing and there were none. Controls were fairly standard."

Ryse was honestly nothing more than a button mash. No on screen instructions and when there were multiple enemies around the parts you were supposed to set on fire, the framerate drops down to it's mids 20's.

I really recommend people play each console in a store or at an event first before buying. It's a lot of money to spend on something that doesn't seem that far off from current gen games.
