Extreme Tech have spent the last couple of days playing with the Xbox One, and I have good news: It’s better than the PS4. It’s definitely not prettier, and the Xbox One gamepad is a little worse than the DualShock 4,
By the website's own logic. Less powerful? Check Gamepad is worse than DualShock 4? Check It's not prettier than PS4? Check Site admits it's a very gimmicky console? Check But it's better. Makes sense.
Why are you making sense? It's against the rules to post your opinions/criticism on this website, you'll get called out and your comment will be marked as trolling just for expressing your opinion. All I have to say is that I can't wait for the next couple of years, when sales and quality games determine which console (the obvious more powerful one) is best
maybe he should have kept reading! "but in terms of functionality, polish, and games, the Xbox One is the better console" "I can also tell you that the Xbox One exclusives, Forza 5 and Ryse, are prettier and more polished than the PS4′s exclusive launch titles."
been there .. and no need to wait that long by neXt E3 things will be clear
Jet, he just picked the bits he can see, sony blinkers.
Hahah mateeeeeee you are so biased just give it like 5 years before you pick which one is better. You might find you buy a x1 and prefer it to ps4. Same goes for you xbox fanboys you may buy a ps4 down the line and prefer. Run at me kents.
He's not making sense. He's being an immature and irrational fanboy like he usually is. Must not have read the rest of the article.
You know, at first I thought you were just a troll but you seem to be one of the more sensible people on here.
"It's against the rules to post your opinions/criticism on this website, you'll get called out and your comment will be marked as trolling just for expressing your opinion." Yea, because both of you sitting at 8 bubbles is a true testament of truth to that statement right? I can't wait to see you back on here claiming the media and journalists are biased when your obvious more powerful console isn't living up to the fanboy hype.
YOU DON'T REVIEW A CONSOLE BASED ON LAUNCH EXCLUSIVES WTF... smh.
Actually, no, no he won't, because Sony.
it's only against the rules when's a negative toward anything Sony though.
@Jetlian reviews for games should be kept apart from hardware reviews.
@jetlian we all know who's going to have better overall games in the end, some could be subjective but at the end of this generation Sony will have more and better exclusives, like older gens. That's absolutely predictable.
lol, yea the logic.
PS4 fanboy? Check Gamepad OPINION? Check extremely bias? Check Both consoles unique and awesome? Check Will I own both? Check
No need to hide it...Admit it...You're going to pay more for less...I bet if M$FT sold you air to breathe you'd pay them twice as much for what they charge.
"It’s better than the PS4." That's the only part f the review that matters....lol
How about "gimmicks won't take it far"? Big Sony games haven't even been released yet.
@ Hammad, those gimmicks are also functionally quite inconsistent at this point which kind of worries me. Quite a few reviewers have raised the same points. But I'm sure MS will iron out these issues over time. However, they cannot iron out background noise or people's accents.
Microsoft are pushing gimmicks and trying to make them long-term. As evidenced, reviewers and gamers aren't on board with the gimmicks. Hence the Wii U not doing as well as the Wii, and hence why the second iteration of Kinect would not have sold by itself which is why they force-bundled it. Meanwhile, we all know that for all the perceived negative aspects of the PS4, i.e. interface, games are short-term negative attributes and all reviewers should know this - and it should be common sense to gamers. We all know the games Sony are releasing the next 6-12 months are going to be awesome. we know that the UI will get lots of cool features on a regular basis. It has, or will have, all the multimedia features you need (even 5.1 surround - LOL). The facial recognition, the voice recognition, the multitasking, the dedicated and cloud services. You don't even need to pay to access any of its base multimedia functionality, like you do on the Xbone. And PS4 will always be a more focused gaming console. It will always have the wider and more diverse selection of games. That kind of logic deducts that a console that is made to be a gaming console first and foremost will be better than a jack-of-all-trades entertainment box where the gimmicks only work when they want to work, if you're in the correct region, and that isn't as focused on games by a long shot.
choosing to quote statements out of context? check. anything can read in a direction that you prefer it too when you only take the bits and pieces that are going to support your opinion. what you did.... "By the website's own logic. Less powerful? Check Gamepad is worse than DualShock 4? Check It's not prettier than PS4? Check Site admits it's a very gimmicky console? Check But it's better. Makes sense." certainly supports your claim they dont make sense but that sir, is your logic not the website. now take the headline of the article... "Xbox One review: Better than the PS4 at launch, but gimmicks will only take it so far" and now lets quote a few other lines.... 1. but in terms of functionality, polish, and games, the Xbox One is the better console 2. I can at least tell you that the Kinect (the reason why the Xbox is more expensive) is an impressive piece of hardware that you’ll (usually) enjoy using. 3. I can also tell you that the Xbox One exclusives, Forza 5 and Ryse, are prettier and more polished than the PS4′s exclusive launch titles 4. Xbox One sets a stronger stage than the PS4. With the PS4 harboring much better hardware than the Xbox One, it will be very interesting to see how Sony retaliates — will it add features to match the Xbox in terms of overall desirability whatever i could go on. clearly you didnt even read past what you quoted because all that is in the first two paragraphs and more than supports their claim
consoles are about games, and if you talk about functionality, tell me why xbone doesn't have broadcasting or DD 5.1 at launch. And don't even start telling me how xbone games are better than PS4 now because we all know who has better studios and exclusives, the difference at launch is Sony is still pumping out PS3 exclusives while Microsoft has abandoned the X360 2 years ago. Imagine if The last of us, GT6, Beyond, Puppeteer were PS4 exclusives... but no, what Sony is doing is FAN SERVICE, that's why ps fans are so confident.
How can anyone say that one gamepad is worse than the other? That's a completely subjective opinion. And you have quite a few bubbles. Surprising, seeing how illogical your post is.
His bubbles relate to his praise for Sony, not his logic.
LOL hypocrites.. last gen you Xbots were always like "X360 controller is miles better", now that everyone is praising PS4 controller it's clearly subjective right?...
Shhhh.....it's gunna be ok. It's just a videogame console. It's gunna be alright
see thats the problem it aint just a game console thats why it excells at nothing but is good a everything. shame
I own both, and I can honestly say that I am having more fun with my xb1 than the ps4. More exciting games, more exciting software, more things to do.
you already have it isn't it out on friday? other then that i have no interest in buying it other then ryse we will have to wait and see how it does.
X1 hasn't released yet! MS hasn't banned you?
No ban...but I love it. Playing KI right now
Glad to hear you enjoy it then... What would you say you like more about the software and what is the difference in the software? And what is more exciting about the games specifically? Say KI over resogun, what is more exciting about KI? Edit: I didn't hit the disagree button by the way :)
@MELMAN for a person who has 2 next-gen consoles right now it seems weird you are writing on N4G, i'd be playing like crazy. I smell BS.
Guys seriously, Melman26 is a big MS fanboy, his opinions are biased. Of course he's gonna say he likes the X1 more, he's a fanboy
pics or you are not telling the truth. lol
I have no reason to lie....I own both. Where do u want me to send the picture??? lol
He could be lying. But Microsoft lifted the Ban. You can play it when you receive it. Just don't post videos
You are right, they lifted the ban.
yea, forza a dry racing game, pass. DR3 zombie games are boring and repetitive, o 720p at 30 don't kut it lol launch game are not. ryse, a god of war type game, its passabl. to be honest both systems launch line is weak in my opinion. we all kno that third parties is key here, lol ps4 will be third party king this gen 1080p, i luv it.
But does it play games? Check "I have spent the last couple of days playing with the Xbox One, and I have good news: It’s better than the PS4." Hrm. I will see for myself on Friday. Now that I've got my PS4 hardware all sorted out I am ready.
this site contradicts itself on some many levels its to funny lol
I'll quote: "but in terms of functionality, polish, and games, the Xbox One is the better console" "I can also tell you that the Xbox One exclusives, Forza 5 and Ryse, are prettier and more polished than the PS4′s exclusive launch titles." Yup I got it. -The end
killzone, is the best looking game...... 1080p/60 frames hell 1080p/60 yells next gen sorry x1 the females can do better with a ps4 lol she said that #theinternet.
Cant wait to get my hands on my xbx one...damn..the wait is finally over...ki, dr3 and ryse are finally coming home to papa.
Sure, because the handful of launch exclusives is all that matters when buying a console, not price, not down the road exclusives, not the better 3rd party games versions, it's all about the glorious 3 or 4 launch titles, that's all you'll be playing during the console's life /s
Dont be mad bro, its just someone's opinion. Just continue playing with your beloved sony products. In fact why are you not playing right now, are u bored already?
Because it isnt the 29th in my case. Why the heck are people assuming that the USA = The world?
Why are u assuming that I am assuming that? A real sony fanatic would probably get an import, and also, I did not specify that he should be playing with a playstation 4. I said sony products.
I'm not mad bro, i know it's someone's opinion, and that is my opinion as well, or am i not allowed to have one ? And you should continue playing your beloved non-sony products as well, or are you bored too ? or there aren't many games to play with the 360 exclusives drought and all since they've been moved to the bone? lol see i can be pretty ignorant too.
Eh, I think the word gimmick doesn't apply very well to what they're talking about.
It never cease to amaze me on how upset people get over reviews which are nothing but someone else's opinion people are going tollike xbox over ps because of there preferences and vice versa I personally enjoy ps over xbox but im not gonna hate
