Sony's got the edge this holiday, a survey finds. Apparently teens prefer PS4 well over the Xbox One -- and so do adults.
Teens, adults, trees, bulldogs, bullfrogs, bulldozers, The Chicago Bulls, The world. Agent Stansfield says... "EVERYYYYONE!!!!!!!" ;
You forgot people with common sense
With all the Miley Cyrus twerking and what not videos and music getting hit along with SWAG and YOLO stuff, the new generation was thought to be doomed. Fortunately, after reading this, it turns out there is still hope left for humanity.
Thats because they dont wanna be seen masturbating by the kinect. i keed i keed.
@SpinalRemains138. Made me LOL! Agree and bubble up.
more kids on ps4 then xbox one looking good 300000 servers to my self.lol how many people getting both.
Agree no more screaming kids, xbox live only gets better.
So, that means you are leaving xbox live and going for ps4.
lol thats a good one obliterator
I can not wait for my xbox one, only problem is i want all the games and my bank balance is going to get hurt :) really looking forward to some team playing online games with all the adults that are left! its great that the ps4 is so much cheaper mummy and daddy will only get you the cheapest console, which is a win win for me ;)
@thrust PM me...I will add you to my friends list. I am very excited to play a game without having to mute kids.
@Thrust. Everyone gets older and wiser. It's just that these "little kids" are growing up and making better decisions. Bravo to them. What's scary is that the adults are so bone headed that they are going to stay loyal when they should move on... What does that say about them? Weaker more expensive console, that should be a no brainer. It's also funny that everyone on Xbox Live use to disagree when people say Live is for the kids. Now it's true and everyone is happy they are leaving lol.
^^^ XBL is essentially for kids or their service of choice at least. Xbox gamers always complain about PSN at first and how quiet it can be on games however from my experience, that's a good thing. The large majority of people over XBL are usually annoying over mic anyway just using it as a way to annoy everyone. It's been way too long since I last joined a random match on an FPS on XBL and actually found myself talking tactics or just having a chat. Probably because I'm from the UK though, we're a lot less sociable with strangers than our American counterparts.
well this 33 yr old will be getting a PS4 this time, as for any screaming kids i'll just MUTE the the annoying little C*NTS
With Xbox Live you won't have to mute jerks or brats. Microsoft is actually doing things to prevent that! Psn gaming on the ps4.. welcome to last gen!
I see no need in having both. PS4 for my gaming needs, PC for anything I can't get on PS4. When the teens are choosing PS4 over the One there is a problem in MS land.
And older gamers too :)
Yup pretty much everyone I know 25+ year olds are either sticking to or moving over to the PS for next gen. I know a fair few teens though who are sticking with the Xbox brand mainly because of the communities the Xbox platform has built for certain games.
<--- So does this 34 year old
That makes sense. Everyone knows teenagers know everything.
Looks like PS4 will be dealing with the kiddies next-gen and all the lovely cursing that comes with it in games like COD, Battlefield etc.
Sure you couldn't expect them to insult your mother on a 720p game now could you? PS4 provides trolling at the highest res! I preordered an xb1 yesterday and couldn't be happier. joking aside both consoles look great and in only not getting both because i cant afford it.
COD yes but most people under 16 dont get battlefield cause you do more than, run shoot die in a span of 30 seconds. Anything beyonf that is too hard to understand for them
dont play generic FPS and u wont need to deal with those issues
Good. They will fit in just fine with the adults there. XB1 isn't a toy.
It's a joke created by ms to have a laugh at all the incredibly gullible userbase. Steve balmhers prank on the world
It sure looks like one and the controller
Not just teens, GAMERS as a whole prefer ps4 over x1. Nuff said.
Enough* Kids and their grammar.
Adults and their high attitudes. Smh I am not here to pass grammar exam MR. GRAMMAR POLICE.
7 Billion people in the world vs 500 Selfish, greedy Children. Thats not what I'd call a cross section of global society. More a collection of spoiled American C*NT's... Just Sayin!
So... i'm going to find a "Xbox Live" situation with lot of kids screaming, insulting and...? Oh well... good there's the silence button in almost every game =P PS4 is almost here!!!!! Argh, can't wait!! >_<
Teens lol..how about most gamers.....31year old here....with a ton of 30+ gamer friends who are planning on buyin ps4.....
I know there are people converting from 360 to ps4. Just wondered if any one who had ps3 only is going xbone. Cant see it happening but there must be one out their
My friend from work is. He had a PS3 played it tons, and honestly I never minded the PS3 it had good titles. But a lot of us had the xbox360 and are planning to get the X1. He's Getting the X1 because he didn't get much friends on PS3 saying that not much people talked in game and due to the fact that myself and about 15 of us at my work are getting it. I find it only makes sense that if you had a PS3 that you would get a PS4 but in this case my friend thought different. an honest reply to your question.
That makes sense. Im a single player guy but if i was into multiplayer and had mates on a different system then yeah i would change. I would be pissed at my mates for having bad taste! But yeah that makes sense
Not many people talking on PSN? Or not many people hurling racial slurs like there are on XBL?
The survey would have been a bit more interesting if they had asked if price or features was deciding factor for their choice.
Most likely word of mouth. I can bet anything these teens have just gone based on word of mouth. Even if one of those teens had more of an interest in the One, all those other teenagers screaming at them 'xb1 is crap', xbox inferior, xbox this xbox that, they're bound to convert. I've had so many friends shoot me down because I'm sticking with the X1 that even I had nights were I was debating with myself. I'm going with the console that has the games I want and that's final and I hope everyone does what they want rather than what peer pressure wants.
You've hit the nail on the head. Word of mouth seems to have a lot of weight to it with the teens I work with. I ask them what they're wanting and they say PS4, BECAUSE they heard the Xbox was 'crap' and some still don't know about the policy reversals and such. I forget that there are an awful lot of younger people who aren't really gamers with their own opinions or real preferences, who kind've just buy and play whatever their friends do. I don't care what console people want, I think people should get what makes them happy, but they should at least give it some thought and do some research. I'd be super happy to hear them say, "PS4 because I like Naughty Dog" or "Xbox One because I like 343". Insert any legitimate and informed reason and I'd be happy.
Im 16, and I can tell you, every one that I know who is getting one at launch chose by reading about them, watching countless info videos. Teens are smarter then you think, its not all "he wants that so I want that, gimmie it"
thank god i wont have to listen to people sulking on xbox live as much because they have been called to dinner by mum or summoned to do homework
Teems today are more connected and know what's happening online as well as offline. They know.
Nice, so parents buy either system for the their kids (doubt maybe 15 year olds got $400 or $500 just laying around), then buy them a mature rated game. It's always nice hearing 13 year olds cursing, yelling, and screaming during online matches. Or driving in reverse on Forza.
Only on Xbox
If you don't have an internet connection, probably shouldnt be buying either system. System updates, Netflix, apps, etc etc require an internet connection. Your a super PSfanboy/troll which is obvious, but regardless both systems would be pretty crappy without internet.
My family members have kids who don't want them online. They have Xbox 360s that doesn't need an update to play out of the box offline. Calling me a fanBOY is rude beyond its meaning. I own all game consoles. Want my gamertag which has 6 years and 46500 gamerscore? Or my Wii friend code with over 90 hours of Smash brothers, Mario kart, or party's. Want my Wii U name with my 18 downloads 6 completed games and 632 posts on Miiverse? Or my PSN ID with my level 14 in trophies and over 150 downloads? Your the true fanboy quit crying. Just play and all I ever do is soft hearted jokes. Have a good day! ^~^ I had 3 gamertags over the years so I don't have all my years built up together. I been on XBL for 10 years. I just quit recently because I hardly play it for obvious reasons.
Funny cause I read a bunch of your other posts and you are fanboy/troll. Any X1 article you post about is negative, yet every PS article you rave about. The fact you own all other consoles does NOT make you a fanboy when you constantly troll on X1 articles and spew negativity. Regarding your family members kids, don't get them a Gold account, problem solved. Geez, that was really tough to figure out. And where was my fanboy/crying? That's right, no where. I'll await your reply, oh wait...no more bubbles for you :(
Hi its me ^~^ All bubbled up! I believe you are an hard fanboy to crack. I will never be an fanBOY of just one console like you. Yes I do say some comments about X1 but never serious like you. I say jokes NOT insults like XBAWKS SUCKS!! I will never say that because I preferred Xbox 1 (ahem original) over PS2. I preferred N64 over PlayStation One. I used Wii and Xbox 360 longer then PS3 but I have respect for gamers and gaming. Unless your 12 or under I would think you understand. ^~^ From your favorite N4G neighbor Quiet. Have fun! PS, I agreed you
Wow, that's sad, you have multiple profiles for a gaming website. Whats the point so you can make multiple posts and hide under different names? Glad I used up all my bubbles so I don't have to comment on this non-sense. And you've yet to point out anything that makes me a fanboy so nice try. PS, kind of pathetic to have multiple user names, just saying.
12 or under it is. I made new account because you can change your name only 2 times. I like freedom Mr. Hater.
Xbox One without internet is the most expensive paperweight ever. PS4 will keep me company for gaming entertainment and Xbox One as my new heater. ^~^
@cabbitwithscissors i look at it like this not that teens are connected
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i was kinda hoping the nippers would stay on xbox or at the very least give up using a mic
I agree with ExDext. Last generation, I owned both systems but towards the end, I found myself playing my PS3 more because of the excusive games and adults (generally) in MP not ruining the experience. Don't get me wrong, It is KILLING me that Killer Instinct is an MS exclusive as it is one of my top five game series. Yet honestly, I will not buy a system that I will play for an average of one game a year. I have put in my time and effort on researching both systems and decided that I would be happier generally, with the PS4.
500 teens in the survey. Ok.
Three days left till PS4 takes the world by storm. School days missed, sick days at work taken, and rolls right into a weekend. Straight maddness!
More kills for me... OOHRAH!!!
Xbox One true next gen!!! PS4 is merely a PS3 with a fresh coat of paint...
