OmniGamer's Phil Keeling, on the verge of the next-generation, is finding it difficult to be hyped, and asks, "Does it really matter?"
Not really...but its still fun and games
this^ the "war" while entertaining, its bs. at the end of the day we love games and when the 15th comees around most of us will be too occupied to care. x1 vs. ps4 war has brought a treat to gaming though this time around, bringing drm to the table really set things off. imo it would have killed console gaming as we know it. so this war to me ment something and was won by gamers not sony when it was removed. imo sony would have sold TONS more than it already is if drm would have stayed on x1. personally im avoiding xbox(first major console i wont buy) because of the lies and contradictions they have constantly made. with the 360/ps3/wii/ps2/ps1/xboxorigin al/nes/snes/n64/sms/sg/ss/gb/ds /psp/psv/gc i knew what i was getting. with the x1 i still dont know wtf that is...is it a gaming system with entertainment capabilities or a entertainment box with gaming capabilities? efff the war i want to know as a customer what i am getting.
The Xbox One is an entertainment box with gaming capabilities. MS made that clear a few months ago. Some people will like that, some won't. You can't please everyone. The only positive thing that can come out of the console war is that if the PS4 outsells the XB1 by a large margin is that MS will be forced to drop the XB1's price, thus giving prospective XB1 owners more value. I'd gladly pick up an XB1 if it was $399 and I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels that way. The better the PS4 sells, the quicker that will become a reality.
Agreed. You make your own mind on which console is better for you. -Hardware -Price -Games -Features Whatever is more appealing to you.
To gamers who are getting both -No To gamers who are getting one first then the other further down the line - No To Fanboys - Yes, it matters a great deal. Don't be a fanboy!
This whole PS4 vs Xbox one thing is getting old fast. On N4G it's even worse that it's becoming tiresome reading the same trolling comments in every damn article. I just want to see some videos and next-gen reviews. Plus what's going on into next year. These past few months the comment section is hardly discussing the article at hand, but rather bickering back and forth on which is better, why this is better than that etc.
I been on this site since 2006. This fanboy shit is so out of control I barely even come to this site anymore. If I say I like ps4 I get voted down or xbox I get voted down, guess I'm just getting too old for that stupid shit. Getting both by the way...
I've been here a lot recently due to the next gen consoles launching and so much info everywhere, it's nice having it in once place. But man, this site has gone downhill so fast in the community.
Nope..both have their pluses and minuses. If your the type of person that is an avid cable and tv/movie streaming consumer and only buys two games a year (one sports game and one shooter), the Xbox One is the console for you. If your more focused on gaming, get a PS4. Different consoles for different types of people.
I will most likely do all my gaming on the PS4/PC and wait for the xbox 1 to have a few more console exclusives before deciding to purchase it as well.
i think the war is just mainly a pass time for most people to keep them occupied until there console is out
why it matters to people who are buying only one of the two: you cant play killzone or infamous on xb1 you cant play ryse or forza on ps4
I chose ps4. I was going with ps4 no matter the specs but they are a plus. Xbox fans enjoy your system. X360 was better at multiplats point blank. I have both systems and I started out hating ps3 I was like really 600 dollars and my fav games runs better on the cheaper system imagine how dumb I felt lol. Then the scales kind of tip me to playstation as there exclusives started coming out, free online and all my friends had ps3. I did however know the games we were playing we're better on x360. I didn't notice a drop of fun lost tho but we're all gamers and deep inside there's a lil graphics whore in all of us. X360 fans that want the xb1 are simply mad because there used to having the better version on multiplats on there console. They also feel that ps fans need to shut up about having the better version of multiplats this time around, but they've bragged about it all current gen,skyrim,bayonetta,cod,all unreal engine games etc. Ps3 fans that want ps4 are used to dealing with bad ports (just pick one) and were tried of hearing the game looks/runs like crap on there system. Now that the tables have turned they wanna finally throw the same dirt in the faces of the guys that were doing it last round. Multiplats run better on there system now they wanna poke there chest out lol silly when you think of it. Truth is there no lost in fun no matter what system you go with, your choice should be preference things like price,friends,exclusives,contr oller, not graphics there just a plus. I've made my choice by history Xbox 360 started off hot and went cold since like 08,09 or since the kinect focused era. Sony didn't steal ps3 games and rush them to next gen to better there roster. To me just my opinion that shows confidents.
