Been a Xbox 360 owner but the facts are the facts and PS4 is the better machine. Now my only question is how to get a PS4 at launch without a pre-order?

Xbox One is better.. XD

@ badboy:

go to places that people wouldn't normally think about going to get their console.

for example, in canada, you would probably easily find a PS4 at a london drugs, shoppers drug mart or superstore.
ShinMaster  +   569d ago
The PS4 is undeniably the better console, technically.

But which ever is best for you is dependent on preference, like certain games and friends who will own one as well.

Oh and just thought id share this...

Recently when i was on a chat with an amazon representative I asked her when i would be charged for my ps4. She said on the 13th of november when it would ship. I asked her if i could get it early by any chance and she said once it ships you should be able to contact the carrier and get it early.

I live 30 minutes away from the warehouse in Fernley where the PS4's are and i might be able to get it on the 13th!
Boody-Bandit  +   570d ago
Be careful not to take it online before the 15th. You might get banned. Oh wait........

Sorry, couldn't resist.

You will be one lucky mofo to get it even a day early. I haven't been this excited for a new generation since the PS2. Camped out 2 nights straight and was the 2nd in line Best Buy. So glad I don't have to do that again. It was a blast but I'm too old for that sh*t now.

Brutally honest. You haven't been this excited for a new gen since the ps2. Woahh man one hole generation. J/K Just thought that was kinda funny. Being there has only been one gen since the ps2. Lol.
Boody-Bandit  +   570d ago
13 years is a long time.
When the PS launched in Japan I rented one from an electronics shop and after playing it a couple hours I imported one from Japan. I imported several games they had out at the time. So when the PS launched in America I already played most of the games by importing them from Japan so I wasn't too excited to get one then.

I've been gaming since pong so I owned every console except the virtual boy. I wasn't really that excited for the 360 and was a little set back by the PS3's hefty price tag.

The PS2 was my most anticipated console of all time when it released. My 2nd favorite launch was the SNES. So yeah 13 years passed, gave you a little glimpse into my history and here we are. The PS2 was my favorite overall launch and I actually want the PS4 even more.

The console that doesnt do year 2002 resolution.
megalonagyix  +   569d ago
I wouldn't come up with resolutions as 1080p is pretty much the past as well.
PixelKnot  +   570d ago
PS4 is my choice as well. I was thinking about switching back to PlayStation after the 360 even before the new consoles were even revealed.

The huge amount of mistakes Microsoft have made with the One have made the final decision much easier. Even with the DRM gone, I don't want the Kinect. Forza 5 is pretty much the only game that interests me, but the amount of content it has in comparison with past Forza titles is rather disappointing.

Here's some of the PS4 games that I'm definitely getting:

- Rime
- Resogun
- DriveClub
- Killzone Shadowfall
- Infamous Second Son
- The Order 1886
- Transistor
- Kingdom Hearts III (multiplat)
- Final Fantasy XV (multiplat)
And maybe Witcher 3.

I'll get both....once Microsoft release a Kinect-less Xbox One bundle in the far future.

No point giving a company who has f***** up since the reveal my money on day one. It would send out the wrong type of message
JodyCones  +   570d ago
I really have no interest in the Xbone. I'm getting the PS4 day 1! And I'm going to save up for a PC as well instead, it's a way better investment than the xbone honestly. You can get labtops than run better than the xbone! Hahaha. And steam has great deals and amazing games. Can't wait to get my PS4 though!!
Rockstar  +   570d ago
I've learned you should sit back for a few months when it comes to MS consoles, see whats gonna pop up.
KrisButtar  +   570d ago
I'm planning on getting both but I only pre-ordered a PS4. It will be a year or 2 before I get a X1, after the exclusives add up. I waited till E3 to see which one I wanted 1st and then Microsoft made it easy with its DRM. 99% of the games I play and like are 3rd party games. Last gen I bought most of them on the 360 and this gen it looks like I will be buying them on the PS4.
Khajiit86  +   570d ago
Same here im hoping for 2014 holiday season they sell a kinectless version for 300 usd. I do not want a gaming camera, virtual reality? Yes. Motion? No. I do not want to yell or waive my hands the controller is good enough.
KrisButtar  +   569d ago
As much as you and others want a Kinectless bundle, I just don't see it happening at all. Even after the launch their if there sales were nonexistent. I would see them dropping the price even below $300 and just taking a bigger loss per sale before they take the Kinect from the bundle. Kinect is just to integrated.

What features are left if they removed the Kinect from the bundle?
rainslacker  +   569d ago
I'll probably get a X1 once the Kinect can be used with a PC. I enjoy programming for the thing oddly enough. That's of course if the Kinect isn't available separately by then.

Otherwise, PS4 day one, and lots of PS3 exclusive titles coming out into next year should keep me occupied.
KrisButtar  +   569d ago
If I could understand programming you can bet I would be tinkering around with it. I can build houses from the foundation to the roof and do everything in between but programming just escapes me.

I'm going to the PS4 midnight launch, its my 1st time going to one. The game I wanted was delayed (WatchDogs.) I bought Ghosts and another controller as I wanted a local multiplayer game to go along with AC4.

The stores around here, still don't have X1 kiosks yet and I want to get some hands on with their new controller as the DS4 is truly impressive.

If you're trying to play some of the best games made you have to do multiple systems.
I already have the wiiu and a few more days the ps4,the x1 will be pickup too just not on release day.i can wait until a price drop.
cyhm3112  +   570d ago
Let me tell you what, xbone won't have many exclusives after its launch, it might have some mediocre ones, but very few great ones if any. They won't sell enough consoles to make a profit. If they don't make a profit, they can't afford to buy exclusives like they are doing now. They have to be responsible to their investors. I somehow can see a disaster. They will lose more money and sell the xbox division one year after launch. If you buy the machine, what would happen? Look at dreamcast.

Oh boy... The blindness is strong on this one.
ExDexteraDomini  +   570d ago
Better in what way? They've both got their strong points. These articles are too general. You can't have one machine simply and completely "better" than the other when they're made to cater to different consumers.
mcstorm  +   570d ago
I agree and its not which one is the best as they both have + and - points. For me the Xbox one fits my needs and gaming side at launch as it has more games I want on day one then the ps4 but for gaming the wiiu is the stand out console over the next few months as it has more games I want and have pre ordered over the other two.

I will pick a ps4 up over the next 12 months though.

But I wish people would stop with mine is better than yours attitude as it is your opinion and someone else has and is in there own right to have a different opinion to anyone else as long as they are not saying mine is better than yours.

At the end of the day of you buy a wiiu, Xbox one or ps4 this is because you want the console you bought and you will be happy with your choice just like everyone else will be happy with there's
Arnon  +   570d ago
They're catering to the same consumers. That's why they're in the same market competing against each other.

Better is relevant to a number of things, such as which games you prefer, which online service you prefer, which controller you prefer, which company background you prefer, etc.

However in terms of speaking strictly about the consoles, with which one having more bang for your buck, one can be, and IS better than the other.

I'm tired of seeing these same type of articles over and over it f@cking annoying I swear can people stop with these articles already I'm getting a PS4 not because it could be better. But because I want one for my own personal reason and not to glorify it to the world. Just let people decided on their own what they want and their reasons why.

If you can afford to get both then get both. The gamers always win. If not then get the console of your choice. See, that was easy.

Khajiit86  +   570d ago
Lol because dead rising 3 is soo amazing. The first 2 were ok but way too repetitive. Theres a lot of zombies, a lot of really dumb and easy to kill zombies, and you do not have to really kill them you could just run thru because you wont kill them all anyways, I did that once the game got really boring.. boss fights werent bad.
alexkoepp  +   569d ago
I find ryse, dead rising, and forza to be a much better lineup than knack and killzone. To each his own I guess and I could care less about indie games, not even sure what indies will be available on either console, to me they are just like games for your phone - fun for 10 minutes.

Knack is a childs game, and the multiplatform shooter offerings are better than killzone, which is nothing more than eye candy, and ryse looks on par or better than killzone anyways

Xbox One. Feature set is to strong. In reality the Ps4 has done very little to move forward. I know their core base doesn't care for innovation and will take the idea of a few unnoticeable pixels and rhetoric over real and true functionality. Like dedicated servers and multitasking and enhanced and extended controls.

I will be enjoying new and interesting things with the X1.

I don't really want to knock the Ps4 but for me it just doesn't have or do enough.
cyhm3112  +   570d ago
you are so wrong, Sony is more dedicated to the gamers and the difference in graphics are very noticeable if you watch the original gameplay footage in 1080p, I can guarantee you that.
MichaelLito79  +   569d ago
I think edonus is right. Right now the PS4 feels like what the PS3 should have been. Overall the ps4 is heading in a good direction but they will not have the great overall experience you see on xbox one beginning at launch and beyond. This crap about 1080p is dragging out. Both systems have there great 1080p games at launch. This is only launch period not 10 years from now. Enjoy your system of choice.
Adva  +   570d ago
Oh no! POWA of the Cloud! Because no one else uses dedicated servers, RIGHT?!

See the whole picture and do not let ur mind blind you. X1 will be good but no xbox was ever better than any playstation. Xbox1(original) was more powerful than PS2, but PS2 simply dominated the Xbox with probaby the best game library of all time.

x360 started great but sony caught up and surpassed them that gen too.

The PS4 is made for game developers and gamers. I have a satellite reciever and can easily function using a remote control that sits right in front of me on my coffee table. So I do not need that new technology the x1 offers (HDMI in). Motion gaming excited me at first but became too much work and when I game I like to relax because I have a job where I work.

I have gamed on the 360 and ps3, x1 and ps2, and because of that I can easily trust sony.
MichaelLito79  +   569d ago
Actually you are right and misleading with a few points you make.

"Xbox1(original) was more powerful than PS2, but PS2 simply dominated the Xbox with probaby the best game library of all time.

I agree but the Xbox had also come out a year and half later so there was definitely not going to be the extensive library that sony gained.

"x360 started great but sony caught up and surpassed them that gen too."

This is actually false.


Xbox numbers have been since October

Xbox has surpassed sony and stays ahead

This article was posted in November

The rest of the opinions you pose are opinions so I will not be a fanboy and knock them just don't spread lies.
jessupj  +   569d ago
"I know their core base doesn't care for innovation..."

Nice bit of obvious stealth trolling there.

I guess you and I have a very very different definition of the word "unnoticeable". %125 more pixels, that's more than double, is definitely not "unnoticeable".

And as a core gamer that's been gaming for a long time, I highly value innovative gameplay. And considering how much more powerful the PS4 is, there's far more potential for bigger and better game engine with the PS4.

I'm not interested in shallow features that have little to do with gaming. I buy a gaming console to play games.

If you like the xbone, that's fine, but please don't say such nonsense as the ps4 doesn't have or do enough, because when it comes to gaming it has far more potential than the xbone.
strickers  +   569d ago
Fluff. Games are what counts and PS have a much better track record. I'm going from all 3 this gen back to 1( not One), and that is PS4.
You guys really buy the gimmicks.
XboxFun  +   568d ago
I agree with you edonus. I like that all of a sudden gamers can notice the pixel sizes. This is completely false and the only reason they could tell is if shown side by side and even told.

I would love for a site to show a game side by side but switch res info and let the fanboys go to town. I bet over half of them would point out their console of choices supposed dominance just because they were told which was which.

The consoles specs are very alike. More games will also be multiplat. Having a system that can not only play these games but do other essential features is a must. Right now MS's Xbox One is definitely ahead and more attractive.

PS4isKing_82  +   570d ago
Just played the Xbox one at my local Microsoft store earlier today. First off I was immediately shocked how small the new controller actually is in person. It feels very amazing in my hands. It's actually about the same size as the dual shock 4. Second they had killer instinct and forza 5 to try out. I tried forza 5 and fell instantly in love with it. The handling, the graphics, the sounds, the blinding sun in your eyes, everything about it has impressed me very much. Yes, I'm a hardcore Sony fan but after today, experiencing it firsthand, wow what an eye opener. Yes the console is a little big and bulky as reported, but the feel of the controller made me a believer right away.

Microsoft has made huge improvements lately and today it really showed. I'm proud to say I'm a very excited future owner of the Xbox one to go along with my wii u and ps4.
MichaelLito79  +   569d ago

Lol I'm getting myself hyped lol it felt amazing tonight being around other ppl all happy and excited talking about the Xbox as we played it. There was no stupid fanboy talk, just honest enjoyment for the console and forza.

What was even cooler was the microsoft employee that helped me was an old high school classmate of mine from 2000. So it was cool running into her and playing Xbox at the same time. Now I'm just hoping I can find an Xbox one in two weeks lol :D

Naughty Dog

Anyways have fun playing your game from Bungie wanabes while I enjoy Destiny from the fathers of the series. Oh and you can get Destiny as well since your a fan of Bungie games.

See you on the dark side of the moon.

OT: It has to be PS4 for me since it will have extensive 1st party support from Sony and I love the franchises from Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica and Ready at Dawn.
