The first Xbox One review and Sony PS4 review has appeared courtesy of GQ magazine as the publication appears to have reviewed both in their 'The Lab' section giving both products a star rating. Xbox One - 8/10 PS4 - 7/10
Wow, they praise the cloud processing, didn't know they had access to see how that works, but hey, what can you expect from this type of magazine
Isn't that like saying the PS4 is going to be amazing based on the treasure trove of exclusive games that we have yet to see?
its called a track record :)
have yet is your key words there this is for launch ps4 gets good exclusive at the end of its life
We know for certrain about the treasure trove of games on PS4, not so much with cloud processing. Also the ps4 is perfectly capable of cloud processing is well.
Pretty much, among other things. This "review" won't influence my decision AT ALL.
@Xsliver If it's called a track record, I guess we can just assume that PSN will be open season for hackers? Double standard is double hilarity. I'll be getting both consoles, because they both have a lot to offer, in spite of what narrow minded depressing cynical fanboys such as yourself might say. And you sure tend to say a lot!
@malokevi that happened once compared to how many good exclusives Sony has do you know what a track record is? but if that's your definition of a track record then i guess you will expect Red ring death part two-_-.
http://www.huffingtonpost.c... Track record :) Besides, I said what I did ironically, not that I expect you to pick up on that. I don't care about track records, that would be YOU! I'm getting both consoles, so I win and you lose, haww haww!
@Malokevi your a special kind of stupid tbh I'm guessing you didn't read that link you posted sad because its only talks about the small attacks on Sony network nothing compared to the one that happened that was aiming for people credit cards so a track record of small attacks smh every company gets attacked. actually Xsilver 3 years of the red ring of death is track record especially when they would create new models with the same problem.
Wohhh. So many of you guys don't know what your talking about..lol it's like I'm listening in to a group of 10 yr olds arguing and bickering. It's prolly just ones guys opinion I wouldn't get too worked up.You sound like a bunch of sore losers.
I don't agree with why the PS4 got a 7/10, but I'd give it that myself now just because I'm so pissed that PS4 will block us from playing OUR OWN MP3s in any form. WTF Sony? This is Microsoft's house, why are YOU trying to move in??!!
hankmoody atleast with sony we know we will get the gaming support we need, MS will turn on us the gamers the moment they see that casuals are again more important than us. For the last 3-4 years just watch MS's E3 conference and its all about family entertainment/casuals/kinect that they focused on also how soon before they bring back the DRM? you trust MS than that's fine its your money but they have to earn my business this time around. EA/MS a perfect match made in the depths of greediness hell if someone says sony will deliever than that's a fact because they have for past 3 generations but if someone says MS will than that's an opinion because they haven't for past 2 generations. They gave up on original xbox, than they gave up on core gamers 4-5 years into xbox360 life cycle when sony delivered so much more in last few years gears,halo--sequels after sequels
At least games have worked in the past. Show me examples of the cloud running millions of games on millions of next gen consoles. Games in the past....have worked...on all consoles... So therefore, it's based on past history...decades of past history.
That's not different than people saying PS4 is useless and has no games, based on a handful of launch titles.
You mean as proven with every PS console? Yeah I guess CAN say that!
Before I would say anything about Microsoft's Cloud, I would definitely like to see something first hand. Words like "this is the future" and "it's a revolution" is something I'll decide myself when I see it in action. I remember how those words were used for the first kinect and how they are rehashed them for the new one.
The "treasure trove of exclusive games" have a proven track record over 3 generations. Cloud hype that can't run COD or BF4 past 720p is, and should be, a laughable joke.
Well said we know Sony's first parties are working on stuff and we know given history they are probably going to be amazing experiences.
Well said, nothing better to make your decision from than history. And history tells us that Sony is indisputably "better" when it comes to 1st party exclusives. In a couple of years when all the big 1st party Sony devs have announced their titles and shown gameplay i will sit back with my hands behind my head and chuckle to myself.
My favorite line " GQ criticised the fact that the PS4 will suffer from a lack of 'killer games' on launch. " So thats why it deserved a lower score....REALLY When Sony have proved their First party line up is always great. I mean they act like the PS4 has no games when it does...
This only applies if you are a fan of Sony exclusives. Naughty Dog has done an incredible job on the PS3 this gen. The Last of Us was one of the best games of 2013 and last I seen had sales around 4 million. That means approx 5% of PS3 owners bought the game. So the people that claim Sony still cranks out games and supports the platform, only 5% are actually taking advantage of it. So what is this track record you are so proud of proving? I am an Xbox fanboy and oddly part of this 5%.
The new tagline should be "Power of Advertising in the Clouds"! So far no one knows the true capabilities of Microsoft cloud service! Even if we go by what the few developers who have spoken out about it, all it amounts to is heresay. This generation is turning into nothing but a bunch of cryptic, deceptive, mis-directive, subliminal marketing schemes! Where in all honestly all parties could be considered being deceptive in some way or form. In a way it makes me wish we could go back to a point in time where the internet wasn't the best vehicle to spread information/mis-information.
You should be glad cloud isn't running. It already looks bad enough that x1 is on par with your 50% more power bs console. 50% more powerfull, hah!!! Joke of this gen
You guys realize that game preference is an opinion, right? You say "Sony is indisputably "better" when it comes to 1st party exclusives". I say BULL. lol Sony has some great games, but they are not "indisputably better". YOU like them better, and that's fine. I like Xbox games, controllers, and Xbox Live better, but it's not indisputable, it's my opinion.
@DayZ "Cloud hype that can't run COD or BF4 past 720p is, and should be, a laughable joke." That might be because 1) DICE isn't using the cloud... http://gamingbolt.com/battl... Just because MS has Azure, doesn't mean it is mandatory that all devs use it...it is optional - a service there for those who want it. And 2) the advantages that come from the cloud have to do more added features/functionality than improved graphics/processing power. Titanfall and Forza are good examples of this.
^ so DICE doesn't use it, eh? I wonder why.What are titanfall and Forza doing with cloud that is so impossible to do with current server tech and hardware? Ryse DR3 COD Killer instinct Crimson dragon Lococyle Power golf Why are all these games sub 1080P then? Nobody using cloud hype? Not even 1st party devs? Whats going on here? Surely it hasn't been PR BS all along has it?
@DayZ, You new to console gaming? Which system plateaued before launch? Gaikai isn't real since it's not available, right? I find it very hard to believe that you fail to understand new technology takes time to roll out given Sony's history with the PS3. Completely different console today from launch. How many firmware updates did we get before the system ran as fluidly as it does today? You were able to wait patiently through many updates, but can't believe that the benefits of Azure aren't realized at launch? Honestly, it sounds like you just don't want "cloud" based processing to work on the Xbox since it could increase the systems performance.
Ignorant comment. Both CoD and Bf4 developers decided to go with their own server solutions instead of using Microsoft's Azure for whatever reasons. Apparently MS is far behind Sony with their driver tools so when they eventually catch up I would imagine resolutions will be the same on both systems with petty differences between both. Obviously Sony's exclusives with have the edge but the overall minor differences won't matter. Only silly immature fanboys who keep score will take notice sensible people won't care.
Stop crying its just some stupid magazines opinion. People on this site need to grow a pair
Death pretty much owned you
What is laughable is how this thread has taken on the appearance of a Sony support group. Is this article it going to stop anyone from obtaining the console they want....uh no. Oh...but the Ego...it burns. Maybe if you wouldn't allow a company to define who you are as a person you would waste less time on this crap.
@Death What are you even talking about? First off, without question, What Gaikai is doing is leaps and bounds ahead of what Azure is.Just because it isn't here yet doesn't mean anything, it's already been proven to work.been shown off in a series of demos and videos and actually has a guiness world record for the "most widespread cloud gaming network" Azure is all talk so far with nothing to back it up.Which is my point entirely.Azure certainly isn't anything new. It's literally nothing but a server farm.It's been done for decades, and MMO's have been using the exact same setups for as long as i can remember.Server side clients to crunch minimal backround data.And that works great, for MMO's with hundreds of players on screen and resource heavy scenarios. The practical use of it the way MS is touting, is ridiculous.Oh, we have the magic cloud to make a ghost of your car in forza! Something the hardware itself can easily do anyways. "Honestly, it sounds like you just don't want "cloud" based processing to work on the Xbox since it could increase the systems performance." No, i'm tired of MS fans acting like online connection to server,number crunching is somehow going to boost the GPU of the hardware or make up for slow bottlenecked ram.It's pure stupidity and it's all i ever hear from you guys. With ZERO proof to back it up.
