Shuhei Yoshida Gives Five Reasons to Buy a PS4 Instead of a Xbox: Power, 1080p, Price and More

SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida is obviously proud of Sony’s new brainchild, the PS4, and he didn’t shy away from giving five reasons why customers should think about purchasing a PS4 instead of an Xbox when asked a very direct question. (PS4, Shuhei Yoshida, Xbox One)

His only valid point might be the $100 price difference, but you get what you pay for...
GiggMan  +   743d ago
So being more powerful isn't a plus?

As far as the price "you get what you pay for" everyone doesn't want Kinect or a Kinect alternative. MS bundled Kinect to justify the $500 price tag.

If MS didn't add Kinect do you think they would have charged $400? Is a Kinectless Xbox One worth $400? Not if you compare it to the PS4 it isn't.

Kinectless Xbox One is a $350 console at best.

100$ less ,more powerful, most if not all games run at 1080p native at higher setting

but i don't agree on launch titles
both launch titles from MS and Sony are not really something you would kill to play them
but next year we gonna see tons of AAA exclusives from sony though

If power isn't a plus to you, you should stick with your flawed nostalgia mentality and keep progression from happening in your world.

VGAs will see many meltdowns after Sony's 1st parties show their stuff. We already got Uncharted out of the way, which will probably win GOTY.

InFamous: Second Son and DriveClub coming in less than 3 months.

What's next? Sony Bend's game? Sony Santa Monica's games (2 are well into development, third is already confirmed), Media Molecule's game? The Order: 1886 gameplay? Guerrilla's new IP? Quantic Dream's new IP? It will not stop for PlayStation. With every month that goes by, it only gets bigger.

Everyone has to just get used to it. Hating won't stop the facts from spreading.

More power is useless if it's not harnessed correctly. Needing patches to run a game at 1080p? That's not native, that's called updating. I guess X1 won't be able to run any games at 1080 though..oh wait, Forza, EA UFC, and whatever games that will come will all have the ability to be at 1080p if they CHOOSE to.

This guy sounds worse than the fanatics.

Anywho, the PS4 is a cool machine. After a day with it I can't deny that it has awesome capabilities and the games look NICE!! But FOR ME, the stumbling block is the controller. The design is awkward with the huge touchpad in the middle and the share and options buttons sitting in little crevices.

Although I like the concaved triggers FINALLY, they are concaved horizontally rather than vertically. Maybe it's just my preference, but a trigger on a controller should IDK, actually be a trigger?

Overall like I said it's a great machine, great looking games, and the only setback TO ME is the clunky feeling controller. Not for me in the end, i'm glad my brother enjoys it though.

Price is why they'll probably stay on top this gen
LOGICWINS  +   743d ago
^^The $100 difference will be a non-factor in 2014 once MS starts bundling games with the One at NO additional charge. I can GUARANTEE you that when XB1 game bundles come out in the U.S.(Halo, Titanfall etc.), your still going to pay $499. This was their plan all along.

Even now, the fact that the XB1 includes Kinect 2 and has features that extend far beyond a gaming console justifies that extra $100 for many people. Don't take my word for it...its sold out.

EDIT: LOL @ the disagrees. They're already doing this with Fifa and Forza in Europe. A full fledged game at no additional cost.
You think they aren't going to try this in the U.S...the biggest gaming market?

As far as features, I want whatever Yoshidas smoking.

Reason 2 is bull. The XB1 arguably has the better variety of AAA exclusive games at launch. The PS4's line up has been deemed to be weak by nearly every publication thats reviewed it.

Reason 4 is a draw. Both Sony and MS have 1st and 3rd party studios working on games. No one has the clear advantage here. We haven't seen what these devs are up to. Its too early to tell.

The only reason that holds water is the one regarding power.

I am buying a ps4, but I won't ever buy the camera so I don't need a light bar on my controller, I also do not want a touchpad forced on me, why doesn't Sony offer me cheaper controllers without that stuff?
GiggMan  +   743d ago
@Logic. If I can get Kinect, plus a good game (TitanFall or Halo) and throw in a Live subscription for $499 I'd bite.

Until then I can't see myself paying over $400 already owning a PS4.

Also what is to stop the PS4 from doing these bundles? Especially if it gets out to a substantial sells lead. (Infamous bundle for example)

@AlexKoepp that's just stupid.

The PS4 controller cost the exact same as the Xbox One controller. No one is forcing a touchpad on you and raising the price lol.

If that's the case I'm sure their will be plenty of third party controllers released that you can plug into the PS4...
1nsomniac  +   743d ago
I've heard a few people say this lately, what exactly do you think your getting for £100 extra that makes it better than it's more powerful competitor for £100 less.

I'm genuinely interested in knowing?
LOGICWINS  +   743d ago
@Giggman- You will. Its only a matter of waiting a few months. If you want to stick with the PS4 thats fine too. I'll have them both by 2015 regardless.

1nsomniac, power isn't everything. Its whats done with that power that counts.

1) People want the more innovative, personalized UI on the XB1.

2) People want the 1080p Kinect 2 (720 p camera for the Eyetoy 2) which tracks multiple limbs at a time(ideal for fitness and dance games) and great for Skype.

3) People want the HBO and ESPN apps on Day 1.

4) People want to play with their friends who spend most of their time on XBL and are used to the system.

5) People want to play Halo

6) MOST people dont own suped up gaming PCs, so they want to play Titanfall on the console that they know their friends will have.

7) Some people who game like watching TV just as much (shocking I know). They like that they can effortlessly switch back and forth between their game and cable television.

8) Because Kinect 2 is packed into every XB1, devs will happily make games that integrate Kinect in meaningful ways that appeal to the core gamer as they are guaranteed to have one potential consumer for every XB1 sold.

9) The XB1 URGES you to game everytime you turn on your tv as game invites/notifications will appear on live TV.

Exactly! Thats precisely the point I'm making. By next year, BOTH the PS4/XB1 will have $499 SKUs and will be on equal ground in terms of price. Sony will begin pushing the $499 SKUs more as time goes.

MS will lower the current barebones XB1 bundle to $399.

Thus, BOTH the PS4/XB1 will have $400/$500 SKUs in 2014.

@Giggman what is a 300 Dollar ps3 or a 250$ xbox 360 then? I don't think those are overpriced, I think the Ps4 is extremely cheap for what's in the machine. X1 is at an ok price point, but without kinect it would have been cheaper.
Sono421  +   743d ago
To people crying about PSN being down during launch... I went to the midnight release.. got home.. set up my PS4, connected online, it told me Playstation Network under maintenance.. I clicked on the store anyways it worked fine so I downloaded BF4 then when it finished I went and played online..

So I have no idea what the maintenance actually effected... I can play online just fine and I can go into the store and download things just fine.. my experience has been flawless.. really don't understand what all the doom and gloom is about. My guess is desperate xbox fanboys...

GoodnessGreatness  +   742d ago
not really. I'm sure I don't get what I pay for if a $500 console has hard time doing 1080p this next gen. And Playstation consoles are future proof. Look at PS2 and PS3 still selling and being supported with games while Xbox 360 is going to be dead around this upcoming year.
Kryptix  +   742d ago
Since Xbox 360 lacked many exclusives, Microsoft has to build on that this generation while Sony has studios from last gen (PS3) working on games for this gen right now. Not only is the PS4 going to be ahead in exclusives again in the coming few years but you'll also be paying less for a more powerful consoles. More games and a much more powerful console, what else do you want as a hardcore/dedicated gamer? There's a lot of reasons for getting a PS4, most of it is because we know Sony doesn't fail to bring in a great amount of brand new and amazing IPs for their consoles. (proven with all PS systems)
kickerz  +   743d ago
1. We have the most powerful 1080p console

Price: Can't argue with that. Price always makes a difference.

Games: I agree Sony has many active power house devs that are making AAA new Ip's and existing AAA's for Sony as we speak.

More powerful: Still remains to be see. COD, BF4, AC, NBA, Fifa and other cross gen games aren't showcasing the next gen hardware in terms of real next gen power. Besides native 1080P and 720P resolution. Other than that these are current games showing the limits of these old machines.

Now these beefed up next gen versions of current games the PS4 is slightly outperforming the X1 its res is higher and some performance advantage. Something that's only reminiscent of current gen difference. We gotta see next gen only games to determine.

"The number one reason is that we believe the PS4 most powerful game console. It’s future proof. The system can grow, the games can grow, but day-one there are lots of games that take advantage of the PS4 rendering natively at 1080p, which is higher resolution than [pause] other systems. It’s so beautiful."

Future proof, evolving and changing all mirrors MS console as well.

"Number three are the features, like social features and the share buttons. The ease of use for the system. You can use your smart phone to purchase a game and while you are away it will download the game at home, so when you get home, the game could be already downloaded and waiting for you. So all of these ease of use and fun to use and fun to find out information about what your friends are doing, all of this is built into the system features."

Again MS machine mirrors some of those features as well, unless you want an extra 10 minutes of playback recording.

It really comes down to personal preference. My long term goal is to get both so I won't be missing out on the fun.

Software can be changed or improved with patches and updates but hardware can't be and that's where difference starts and imo that's where PS4 will stay ahead of the competition.

Wow,..... its, more powerful on paper and in reality, 125% higher res on COD, 56% higher res in BF4 along with a better framerate, has HBAO instead of SSAO in NFS Rivals along with bokeh blurring and overall sharper textures than the X1 version and the list goes on and yet you still doubt it. Wow!

Blah, blah, blah yawn. Digitalfoundry found fancy words for you to play with I see. You found your "argument" now but I bet you you weren't saying anything when they showed off NFS running on both systems because well you know, they look the same.

But nice try @Sparda you gotta come stronger than that.

@Free That is true but all I'm saying is the more powerful console is existent and its there buts its not night and day like many here hoped. And maybe it will but you can't judge from current gen games boosted by next gen consoles.

As for the disagrees looks like nobody can counter my logic so people have no choice but to disagree, I believe I won this debate.

Looks like fanboys just want me to say "Yes Yoshida those are perfect reasons." Sorry I have my own mind, a free mind at that. I apologize for not saying the most popular thing that most expect. That's not my style.

I prefer the X1's launch games then the PS4 ones, but in the long run the PS4 is a better deal then the X1, because i don't think Microsoft can keep up on the number of quality exclusives Sony offers... and the PS4 is 100€ cheaper.

BTW: I didn't even mention PS+ offerings. I hope Microsoft can compete with PS+, by including better offerings on XBLA Gold.
One other factor is that the PS4 is more powerful and has better looking 3rd party games, at least until know.

Actually, Activision and IGN confirmed that the review copy's of Ghosts were native 1080p so it was 720p v 1080p. So don't use that as an excuse of them looking exactly the same. In fact, it is arguable that the X1 versions look better.

Not sure i believe them - Activision and IGN. Usually aren't into conspiracy theories, but wasn't it pixel counting on the comparison video IGN put out which first exposed the PS4 version's output only being 720p and led to the realisation there was a bug preventing it outputting at 1080p on ps4 version? Unless there's an explanation for that bit, i'd expect the Activision/IGN claim was some face saving, and maybe a little reluctance to re-review it with the proper 1080p ps4 output settings.

Will know soon enough though. Should shortly be some videos available in 1080p on ps4 to compare against the IGN 'comparison video' (also of the XBox1 version next week) and see if it was representative.. or a fudge.

Cool... where did you get your pre-release Xbone? Awful nice of them to let you use it on XBL without banning you.

Pretty sure that both xb1 and wiiU are capable of rendering natively at 1080p. -_-

Xb1 does have a great launch line up, and you can prefere them. But that cannot be used as reason against PS4 if you are saying there are no games. Everybody knows what is coming. Hopefully all gamers get what they want long term.

I can only afford one console each generation, and I like the games we always get on PlayStation.

Microsoft can do the same argument, in that they have great launch titles, innovative controls ect, and its a good machine. I think that PS4 is better, it will get great games. PS3 is still getting them.

You just can't say PS4 isn't more powerful, or it has no games. Such an argument would need a couple of years to make when we see what arrives.

So the Xb1 has a great launch lineup of games but this can't be used as a deciding factor when choosing which console to buy? Are you sniffing glue or is this just another; "if it's not Sony then it doesn't count?" Btw, what's coming?

Stop pretending to be dumb . He is actually giving compliments to the XB1 launch line for starters . If he is content with what's still there on PS4 and eagerly expect what's coming pretty soon on PS4 how is he wrong ?

Xbox One is indeed £80 more expensive but it does come with the Kinect camera, so let's not pretend it's just more expensive for nothing. Mine also comes with Fifa.. yeah..

X1 has the best LAUNCH lineup thats proof. Ps4 only has KZSF and Knack and nochof them aren't very good. What is "the most powerful console" without good games? Useless is the answer.
And the 100$ price difference is no t true cause when you include the PS eye camera the difference is only 50$.
And about the graphics. Just compare a trailer of ryse and KZSF

And don't forget thats all in game in the trailer of ryse

I don't think "proof" means what you think it means.

I disagree, Resogun is very addictive and haven't seen any console do what it does when the controller in your hand shouts Armagdon! Killzone I started playing last night, and today got to that part just like in the commercial, and I got that same feeling. It made me smile and playing with my son, it was a perfect day.

Im so sick of all you feeble minded fanboys. Who the hell buys a console based on launch games? How daft does one have to be to make a $500-$1000+ purchase based on its first 2 weeks of support?

Wow...just wow

Then you use cinematic trailers as a sad attempt to make the x1 lineup look amazing. Ryse gameplay footage looks horrible and lots of people agree. You can show cinematic footage and bullshots all you want, it's not going to make the gameplay fun. Both launch lineups ate severely lacking. Ryse will get 6s and 7s. Dead rising is a last gen zombie arcade game at 720p and struggling to hit 30fps. What else? Forza? 200 cars and last gen visual corner cutting?

Seriously dude, educate yourself

Your saying ryse and xboxs crappy exclusives are better than The Last Of Us, Uncharted series, Killzone series, and Infamous series. I've played halo both it's story and multiplayer sucks
TheXD305  +   742d ago
You know the last of us is ps3 exklusive. I was talking about PS4 exklusives at launch and there are only KZSF and knack and neither of them is really good.
And yes I like ryse. It is the best looking launch game. If you compare it with KZSF you'll See a HUGE difference of your "50% more powerful console". Btw the difference is that ryse looks stunning and KZSF looks good

My top 5 for getting an Xbox One:

1. Dedicated servers on every game.
2. Kinect 2.0
3. Better media capability
4. Better launch line-up
5. Better UI/UX

You can add 6 for Halo

Dedicated servers on every games ? lol

"low chance" of it happenning

Yeah i know "the cloud" and everything but most of the third party games won't use the cloud for gaming , because ubisoft, ea , activision , konami and the list goes on have their own dedicated solutions that aren't dedicated servers everytime.

You can be sure that COD will still be P2P for example.

So the every game part is simply untrue.

I preordered and paid for my XB1 and wasn't planning on getting a PS4 till way later. However, I did buy 3 PS4's to flip on Craigslist but as I stared at them in my house, still in their box, something happened. I opened the one I got at GameStop (I like their warranty better than BestBuy and Target). I couldn't resist.

The news about the Secret sauce, Uncharted, Media Molecule, Sony Santa Monica, Naughty Dog...all these names and images kept flying through my head and I just couldn't stop my hands from opening the box. There is no regrets. So much so that I'm not going to flip the 2 extra PS4's. I'm going to find someone at the mall or a GameStop, Target, or Best Buy and tell them that they can buy it from me for $435.

If I return it, then it just goes to whoever, probably an employee. When. I bought my third PS4 this morning at Target, there were three of us waiting at the door. An older gentleman, myself, and some punk, douchebag, 20yr old kid. The older guy was first and I showed second. An employee had come out and asked what order we were in because they only had two consoles. the douche tried to say he was second but the older guy told the truth. I don't want these PS4's to go to douchebags.

I have my PS4...

But, these reasons were not the reasons I bought it...

My 5 reasons...

1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 = Games

My 5 reasons that next week I am picking up my X1 pre-order...

1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 = Games

Coincidently my reasons for buying both consoles are the same...

As for Yoshi's reasons...

1) I don't care as long as the games are great to play.
2) Yes, I want games
3) Social features are for social butterflies... Not gamers...
4) I don't care about the studios, I care about games. They could have 5000 studios, but if the games suk I'm not interested.
5) I don't care... I bought both.

one of the biggest things for me is Online ... that's why xbox will always be my primary console.

Don't know who he is but he should shut his mouth trying to tell me what to buy.
ironmonkey  +   743d ago
Ps4 is more powerful that's all you need to know. With dr3 being 720p and ryse being 900p and cod being 720p we can all agree that the xboner is already maxed out. What a shame.
DivineAssault  +   743d ago
Gotta love him.. I know M$ fans are a bit angry about some things & this guy puts the cherry on top every time.. Every single day, theres great news surrounding PS4.. Exact opposite for xb1.. Dont get me wrong cuz i plan to purchase xb1 whenever it drops in price & gets a new smaller model but i know for a fact that PS4 will demolish it & will be most ppls primary console.. PS4 is 1st, wii u 2nd.. xb1 last & least for me.. & thats only if they get some great exclusives i wanna play.. They really dont have any 1st party studios that make anything im interested in.. I would like to at least try Killer Instinct but rare isnt making it, dbl helix is & their track record sucks..

Sony had this console all planned out to be amazing & its working too.. I will follow him on twitter from now on cuz i love his comments to ppl
