Now that he Xbox One and PS4 have been reviewed, it's time to break down the scorecard and see why CNET gave the higher mark to the PS4.
Do We even need a Round 2? K.O!!!!
round two will be next week when the ps4 is released in Europe then we will see who has sold the most, considering ps4 has only released in Northern America and xbone has its global release tomorrow
It will be like throwing rocks at a dead horse. Just leave it alone. The XBone is DOA. Btw why does it say "Priced at $799.99"???
Just like the ps4s! its an opinion like mine is xbox one much better to me for me ;)
Lmao, is this really cnet? What a surprising turn of events to see them giving the win to Sony. @Insomnia_84 That $799 price is apparently what the PS4 is selling for on Amazon.com It's a link to it http://reviews.cnet.com/con...
@badboy776 Technically this is Round 2. Round 1: Pre-Release Battle (announcement events + E3) Sony won Round 2: Launch Wait until December IMO, but it seems Sony has the lead Round 3: Year 1 (December 2014) XBO has some heavy hitters, but PS4 has a HUGE list of games from indies and PC developers and they still haven't shown their full 1st party line-up. Round 4: Year 3 (these consoles are entering their prime) Round 5: End of the generation.
quality console and games so far goes to XB1 hands down
dream on have you seen ryse score thats youre big game and it gets 5 out of 10 only sites own by Microsoft give it 8 out of 10 because of bias edit quality you mean a 500 dollar system that's weaker than a 400 dollar system , yeah sure that's quality alright s quality
I don't get as to why you automatically discredit the other two heavy hitters that are performing admirably- forza 5 and dead rising 3, just because ryse is getting poor to mixed reviews..
Dead Rising 3 is a heavy hitter, seriously? DR3 was never meant to be a AAA title / heavy hitter. It's an average looking over the top arcade dismember zombies game. Forza 5 definitely could have been but any honest fan of the series knew it wasn't going to be. It arrived a year too soon having less than half the content of Forza 4 and an okay boost in visuals but nothing spectacular. Ryse was the game most touted / hyped game coming into this generation. "The visuals are simply mind blowing, nothing looks as good on any console. Haters can play it down all you want it's going to be stellar." <- Is all MS fans were saying the last several months leading up to launch. Those of us that are actual gamers and have eyes have all said it's such a simplistic combat engine with clunky animations. All the visuals in the world are not going to help that title be even close to a AAA title and it isn't. Hell even Polygon gave it a 6. Some reputable (I know I'm kind of laughing at that word too) sites gave it a 4 or a 5. Anyone that says the X1 "clearly" has the better launch line up needs to check into rehab, take off those goggles, stop kidding yourselves or go see an eye doctor. Face it, Sony has the edge because they are focused on what matters most, games. They built the most powerful developer friendly console for the next generation that will offer gamers the overall best "gaming" experience, and most importantly at a cheaper price point. Their online runs better and has much better communication than the PS3 does. That was my biggest gripe with the PS3, in game voice communication. I played in a party of 4 last night playing Killzone and it ran like butter and voice communication was crystal clear. MS will do fine this generation but Sony will do significantly better.
calm down I said "so far" and yeah ryse got mixed reviews but have seen knack reviews? yeah it got 5s and 3s also, 400 is still too high for a buggy console with awful launch exclusives "so far" :3 I'll wait till next year and buy a Japan made PS4 for Deep Down :D
PS4 launch lineup is higher reviewed, and we can't possibly know about XB1's quality yet but it could do worse than PS4 and still be a well made console. Not sure why I bothered replying to you since I've seen your past comments and know you to be irrational.
The only X1 game to have consistently "good" reviews is Forza 5, DR3 was mixed and we all know how well RYSE scored. Superior multiplats and well received F2P's is a win for Sony imo. Also, 1 million console sold and under 1% failure rate is a quality console, industry standard is 3% failure rate at launch.
dream on troll. the verdict is in and it's not looking good for MS's third child. If things play out any further the ps4 will leave the X1 in the dust with all the upcoming exclusives. Not looking good at all.
Actually the PS4s quality is higher than the XBOX One. All you have to do is compare the mobos and you can see which one has the most advanced design.
Check dat Ryse receiving mostly 5's. I'll give you dead rising - that game looks great, apart from that I could care less about the xbonr
Did you fix ur ps4 yet? Remember, keep ur room at cool temperatures!
I'm getting both because they are obviously both great consoles with great games coming. Might even get the Wii-U with the line of games they have. Can't we all just get along and say they're both good?....Maybe?...No?....Ok.
If you an individual only has the financial means to purchase one system it boils down to exclusives, performance, and value. Two of the three were awarded to the PS4...and those are not subjective. The PS4 is more powerful and $100 less.
Sony destroys M$ .
Video game consoles are for one major purpose,video gaming. When Sony starts releasing those exclusives ala infamous ss, the order 1886 and ND just to name a few, its gonna be curtains for xbone.Ps4 is just like the hulk...will get only stronger with all that power
I really love all of Cnet 's reviews they are always detailed and well written. Pretty much my go to for researching electronics anymore (have been for years).
This website is a joke. It is amazing all the Xbox fans and even Nintendo fans have gone away because there is no point to comment on anything it will get down voted by the SDF...if it is a positive statement about another console. LOL...an absolute joke.
Have you ever thought about the possibility that a lot of Xbox/Wii fans have jumped ship to PS4? Also, it's not just this site, check out the comments sections of most other gaming sites
i'm sure IGN or other pro MS sites will welcome your tears. I dislike this whole console war nonsense but nothing ever stays the same forever. Remember the days when N4G was a 360 cesspool full of MS fanatics? people who remotely mentioned the ps3 would get ripped to shreds on a daily basis.
Exactly. I remember those days quite well even though I hadn't joined yet. They had the open section where fanboys would just go at it.
i must admit i enjoyed the open zone for all the wrong reasons hahaha. it was comical at best.
Yeah I always went to the open section whenever I needed a good laugh. Good times.
PS3 fans didn't leave back when N4G was dominated by 360 fans. Are you saying MS and Nintendo fans are overly sensitive?
Not even the slightest. I just think PS4 fans are a highly vocal un-educated group in the gaming community. Sheep is the word that comes to mind.
"I just think PS4 fans are a highly vocal un-educated group in the gaming community. Sheep is the word that comes to mind." Ironic, given that I was the only one of my gaming friends to not buy a 360. They were the sheep who jumped on that bandwagon because of impatience, while I was the independent thinker who went his own way. Funny that none of them have a 360 anymore or have any interest in XB1. Your answer confirms your own overly sensitive nature, and the word "uneducated" doesn't have a hyphen.
Sheep doesn't have a hyphen either. I just have to ask if your such a PS4 supporter why aren't you playing it? Did it break? Or are you getting it as a Christmas gift?
"Sheep doesn't have a hyphen either." Agreed, but I'm not sure why you made a point to tell me. "I just have to ask if your such a PS4 supporter why aren't you playing it? Did it break? Or are you getting it as a Christmas gift?" I'll be buying a PS4 as soon as possible but I need a new TV first. I don't know why you had to ask, but I hope the answer was satisfactory because this is my last bubble. Peace and good gaming.
The x1 has a much better line up of games. Sony has lost consumer confidence with the ps4 failure rate. Don't see how anyone can say round 1 went to Sony with the majority of reviewrs rated the x1 higher than ps4.
PS4 launch lineup has better reviews. Any consumer who is put off by PS4's defect rate is a moron, because it's well within the acceptable range. It could quadruple and still be within the acceptable range. XB1 could have five times as many defective units and it would still be within the acceptable range.
Not even close you folks on the other side can keep fooling yourself. The failure rate is higher than expected.
Fooling ourselves about what? The reviews thing is simple math, and the failure rate thing is simple statistics.
lol so many butthurt fanboys. things will critically change within the next years. you can not say which one is better at launch. everytime you feel the need to say some stupid fanboy shit, just think about last gen. smh
Wow, CNET giving it to Sony, that is really impressive. CNET has always been more Microsoft than anything. The PS4 is truly more impressive that I initially thought.
lol The XB1 isn't even out yet. The least these impatient fanbois could have done is wait a day.
Round one goes to me. I nuked so many console war bases it's not even funny.
