PlayStation 4 the win !
# for the gamers
Weird how they List Titan Fall in the release window for X1 but fail to list Infamous 2nd Son for the PS4 when both come out in March 2014.
do you see my Profile pic I'm all about Second Son i feel insulted that didn't mention it and isn't the order next year too?
Infamous in February?
I have to tell ya. After watching The Spartan Show on Twitch tv all last night (where random dude and pregnant wife setup his own talk show using PS4 Playroom and Google Voice to take calls), I think PS4 wins the social aspect now also. That was just incredible with people like Adam Boyes, other Sony top guys, and indie devs catching wind of it and calling in to support them and talk to people. And Shu watching and tweeting about them. Gaming personalities like Greg Miller trying to call in but the phone lines were jammed. It was witnessing something special and organic form right before our eyes. The couple was awe-struck, and couldn't believe it was happening. It got popular so quickly, a bunch of Twitch admin had to swoop in and begin moderating and helping the couple. Dude, even raffled off his old PS3 if he got to 200 views. It got to like 200,000. That whole experience really felt like THIS is the next gen! Can read about it here also http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Is happening again tonight I guess
I think it's been established that the ps4 is for gamers and x1 is more of the multi media box
You can't go wrong with either, both are great and have their own set of unique features. The main thing that separates the 2 are exclusive games and it's way too early to make comparisons. Launch titles don't really show what these systems will be capable of 2-3 years down the road.
History though tells you that out of the 2 companies Sony is the one with the most and best quality exclusive titles. That is why they have been winning GOTY awards this generation. That is also why in just 2013 alone, the PS3 enjoyed 10 exclusive blockbuster titles and more are coming, while MS has abandoned xbox 360 that has almost forgot what the word exclusive really is.. History also tells you that Sony is investing in a family of studios, not just writting off checks to get some exclusive DLC content or timed exclusivity or even proper 3rd party exclusives. Sony is investing in aquiring talented teams under one roof, sharing technology between them and enabling them to produce AAA titles. MS wasnt smart enough to even acquire studios that produced their best selling titles like Bungie (Halo) Epic (Gears of war) etc etc now all those devs are going multi... So based on these facts alone, the answer should be pretty darn CRYSTAL CLEAR as to which system is going to get more 1st party exclusive support out of the 2 down the line. And yes, that is the Playstation 4. By a mile actually.
X1 is also for gamers, but it just features more stuff next to it. Because of that it probably has worse specs, but saying that it isn't for gamers is complete bull.
No one said it wasent for gamers. But the ps4 def takes the cake for the king of the two for gaming. And more features hardly. IMO not one single feature from the x1 takes the cake over the glorious vita remote play.
Plenty of people have said it mate, trust me :) I don't think that, in the long run, PS4 will be able to compete with the Xbox One; App wise and with camera functionality. The fact that gold is required for almost all of it is absolutely bollocks though and is really a thing that is holding the Xbox One back of being a really great entertainment device, over the PS4. I agree with you on Vita remote :) That would be really awesome. But to me it seems strange that some people always bitch about 60fps/1080p, but really look forward to Vita Remote. But to each his own :)
MS was never gonna win in the First Party Studio department.
PlayStation4 is the ultimate video game console in existence today. Next gen era will be known as "Ps4 era".
Here is where I think Microsoft went wrong, you see this TV, NBA, NFL stuff is considered appealing in the US and maybe Canada only, it's not that appealing to people in Europe, Asia, Africa, and south America. What we non Americans see, is a console heading in a direction that we don't really want, it's a gaming console, we want video games, so we want to see Microsoft spending money to create and buy studios that make games not movies and TV. You see, Sony is doing the opposite, they have entertainment things like Netflix and hulu, etc.., that works just fine every where. But they mainly focus on Games, I mean look what I am promised if I buy a PS4... Uncharted, infamous, God of War, Sly Cooper, The Order, GT. And New IPs like The last of us from time to time... and that's just at the top of my mind, not to mention games that will run at top quality like... watch dogs, the witcher 3, battlefield, Call of duty, Assassin Creed, The Division, Destiny, and others. True, these games will come out for the XBox one, and they will probably look great too but let's go back to the exclusives, what does Microsoft have... Halo, a good game, but Microsoft has been milking it for far too long, is it gonna be like Nintendo and Mario... Gears of war, I'm not quite sure but I think it's not going to be exclusive any more. Quantum break which again falls into TV and I don't really get what they are trying to do, but I'll wait and see what they'll do. And then there's fable, although its also on pc, and the last game wasn't very good. So the point is, for most, not all, but most it's really about the games, and who ever gives us more games we will buy their console, simple as that. Forgive me for the long comment and any grammar mistake.
If you didn't buy it yet, wait until some of the games mentioned above come out, by that time the PS4 will be on the 3rd or 4th wave and any issues will be hushed out.
I wouldn't count Canada. Most of the media features aren't available here. The ones that remain are mostly on PS4, where they are not behind a "paywall."
I'm glad that the launches are out of the way and I have them both. I have not read what edge has to say yet but in my opinion thus far, just on the systems interfaces and just using them in general, the playstation is better. Everything is so much cleaner and faster. When the kinect voice commands work it's fast and sexy. Problem is the PS4 is so fast that when I'm popping in and out of games, Netflix, the internet browser or whatever, depending on what im trying to get to, I can get there before I can say xbox go to internet Explorer. And if the kinect does not understand me (which is about 20% of the time so far) its jarring. Repeating the same commands 4 times or better before you say "damn I probably would have been there if I just would have used the controller". Unfortunately you probably wouldn't have because of all those damn squares and menus within menus. This will probably be fixed when I start pinning everything and get used to where it's pinned. On the PS4 though it's has everything conveniently placed and quickly accessible. Party chat for example. Up and bam there's party chat. On xbox it's go to the games and apps square, then the party square in these screens full of squares. Maybe it's all just too cluttered for me. Again that's all ONLY of kinect fails you which will be a noticeable amount but far from deal breaking. Since I play on pc I have tons of Skype friends sothat's a big aaddition for me. The tv thing is hit or miss depending on the channel you call out. I disconnected it after a few hours of use because I could only think of how much my light bill would go up. Cable boxes use alot less electricity and work just fine compared to having my xbox on just to make sure I don't miss a message. (Adult thoughts) I love that it recognized me and I'm a black guy *cough kinect 1* so that is also cool. Sorry this went on so long and I'm sure opinions may vary. I'm not saying that the PS4 grinds the one into dust. I love the system so far. One last thing. Is anyone else's xbox controller clicky as hell? That damn dpad clicks like an arcade stick. Triggers too.
Well said bub from me. You, clearly, have both consoles. You gave your own opinion of the two, and you did it without trolling or "fanboy" remarks. If you had an editor, then this post would have been better than a lot of websites out there. I respect your honest opinion.
Wow thanks! Us gamers are a rare breed. Get the console for the experiences not some misguided loyalty. And I feel like we owe it to each other to give honest opinions because our gaming websites these days can't be trusted. Gamers counting on gamers. I should sell that as a logo.
