"I have purchased every Playstation console but I’ve never owned a Xbox - until now."
I am a Sony fan, but I think you really missed out if you never bought an X360 as well.
yea ultimately I ended with a PS3 but the 360 was a really good console to have.
yeah, really the wrong xbox he decided to buy!!! Anyway, good he could feel PS consoles are better. I dont have to buy an xbox to realize that cause PS consoles always deliver what i expect from a gaming console: GAMES!
Wrong xbox?? We're still in early stage buddy most game won't come out till later on, happens to all new product, things doesn't get better right away.
I actually just bought one today too... and got the day one edition of everything lmaooo Day one edition of dead rising 3, day one edition of Ryse, and day one Edition of the Xbox One itself ahah and they still had plenty of Xbox One's there :o I went to Gamestop :p And just saying I have a PS4 too... but got that at launch :p
Why am I getting dislikes? I did get day one editions of everything.. I even got the Day One membership card thing with the free killer instinct character.. If you guys are seriously going to fanboy it up I can upload pictures...
blue dragon, a decent bit of console exclusives, lost odyssey, dead rising, viva pinata (guilty pleasure), gears of war 1-3, halo, some better multiplats, forza, alan wake, amongst others. 360 wasn't a bad system at all, especially in its youth.
One of the greatest consoles of all time
In the first 3-4 years, the xbox 360 was really good. Tons of exclusives every year, and gamers were happy. Microsoft stopped publishing games though, and that's ultimately the biggest problem with the xbox right now... not enough focus on games.
I always seem to have to bring this up.. Exclusives aren't the end all, be all of gaming.. I never noticed any game drought.. I played all the most popular games in the last few years... Because they were all multiplats.. Even now.. Games like the division, destiny or watchdogs etc are the anticipated games.. Sure titanfall or infamous are up there.. But compared to the number of great mp titles, its a drop in the bucket.
the only game Ive ever wanted to play on the 360 was Gears Of War, not enough for me, plus my time is of the essence, I still got a backlog of games for my PS3 Ive yet to finish ;/
Article was a needle of common sense in an ocean full off fanboyism crap. Fair dues to the author, great games he would miss are now open to him... And that is the way it should be...
Man, I got my ps4 but I really want an xbox one as well. I see great exclusives coming from both sides! But yeah, screw fanboyism.. why not put that energy towards promoting console gaming as a whole. A novel and hopeless thought!
I had a 360 before a PS3, I only play my PS3 there is nothing to play on 360 worth playing anymore nothing... it just collects dust. Since the first few years I played it.
And people will miss out this gen if they don't buy both consoles.
Went through 2 360s while my PS3 held strong, learned my lesson.
Im the same. Im mainly and Xbox gamer, I own a PS3 and Will get a PS4 simply for the great exclusives.
Depends on when. If we talking the first three years of 360 then I agree after that it was a long slope downhill.
This won't go over well here....lol I see a lot of people going with xb1 over the competition next year when games like Titan fall, quantum break and sunset overdrive hits, and that's only the beginning. IMO, Xbox is the best place to play. Play station hasn't been the same since ps2 days for me. Xbox has taken that crown. Even the person in that article ( even though he is wrong about xb1 not having a sleep feature) can see how Xbox has improved on things like quality,features and a better controller.
I think you'll find Titan Fall will get most of it's sales on PC. That's where I'll be getting it anyway, whilst I enjoy my PS4.
Most will be on 360
VGchartz preorders tell a very different story. Xone = 122k, 360 = 31k and PC = 43k. Obviously only in the US and not including digital preorders.
this comment reminds me of that south park episode with the mormons. "dumdumdum"
I love how Belking thinks that casuals care about unknown IP's like Titanfall, or Quantum Break or Sunset Overdrive.
Mike- Most PC gamers I know get the digital download version. It's nice to have it pre-loaded and get to play the moment the activation key is sent out.
Andrew... X1 is in the same boat.. Day one downloads make preorder counts way smaller.. I haven't preordered a single game for my x1 and I don't intend to.. Even tho I plan on being on titanfall among others on day one
"Play station hasn't been the same since ps2 days for me." Key words... FOR ME.
So?.. Do we need to preface every single comment in here with that? Nobodies opinion means anything but that.. Ever You disagree with him? Key words.. YOU. LOL
Titanfall is on PC as well, and most people I know are getting it on PC. I find it pointless to buy a $500 system for Titanfall when you can play it right now on what your are typing on. Quantum Break doesn't interest me at all, it seems like it will be like Beyond 2 Souls, but with TV integration, so you will have to wait to play the game for a new episode to come out or whatever they are doing. At the end you said Xbox has improved on things like quality, features, and a better controller. I hope you mean it improved on the 360, because as far as I can tell the PS4 has more quality, features, and a better controller IMO...
How many people have been making this wrong observation. Quantum break is a 3rd person shooter not an interactive whatever beyond 2 souls was. Not every pc was made the same what I'm typing on sure as hell can't run titanfall. Your opinion of controller is subjective it's like saying yellow is a better color than purple. Keep your opinions to yourself unless you can convey them in a proper manor.
I'm not planning to play Titanfall on my Macbook Air. Most people I know have already gotten or will get the X1 just to play Titanfall, since video games deliver a better experience on consoles.
Titanfall is using the Source engine. I guarantee you the computer you're using to type that can run it.
lets_go_gunners So you are pretty much saying "keep your opinions to yourself unless I agree with them"? I have the right to say whatever I want. I laugh whenever people tell me to keep my opinions to myself. Yes, I agree I was exaggerating with Quantum Break, but everything else is justifiable. It's not like I am lying and saying bullshit like Xbox One can't even run Titanfall at 120p and PC is the master race lol fags or something like that, I am just saying that most people have a PC that can run Titanfall on at least low settings, and it would cost less to upgrade your PC to play Titanfall than to buy an X1. Titanfall is a source engine game anyway, pretty much anything can run source... I have the right to say I like the PS4 controller MUCH more than the Xbox One, more so of a right since I have played hours on both, unlike most people that say one is better than the other. I will not bitch at you if you say you like Xbox more than PS, or MAC more than PC. That is your opinion and you have the right to convey it however you want, just as I do. If you don't like my opinion, ignore it. If I am saying something wrong, as I was with Quantum Break, tell me in a polite manner, just as you did in the beginning. TL:DR I laugh at you saying "Keep your opinions to yourself unless you can convey them in a proper manor." but obviously meaning "keep your opinions to yourself unless I agree with them". You are not the internet police, you have no right to tell me what I can and can't do or say. I can express my opinion just as much as you can. Don't be a douchefag about it....
Lol MS will never ever have more exclusives than Sony. TF ain't exclusive so all y'all have is Quantum Break which is nothing special looks Luke a fake Splinter Cell. and Halo 17. PS4 has InFamous Second Son,Driveclub,The Order 1886,and Uncharted. Uncharted is alone is better than anything the Xbone is getting. And that's not all. Sony's many 1st party studios are all working on PS4 games. Sony has way better studios than MS. Naughty Dog is better than any MS studio. Sucker Punch and Santa Monica are better than anything MS has too. If you like Xbox play Xbox. But don't lie to yourself talking about Xbone has the games. Every generation Sony brings the best/most exclusives. And PS4 has the best controller now. Even developers said it was the vest they ever used.
Somebody clearly plays brands rather than games,some of the studios haven't even announced games yet you champion them as a ps4 strength. Based on announced games, I went with xbox. But i will get a ps4 in maybe 2 years. Id say theyll have some good exclusives out by then
@GreatnessAwaits All I can say is that your name is apt. You are waiting for it to arrive. Infamous is the only game announced for 2014 that has a chance of selling like Quantum Break, Halo 5, or TitanFall. Infamous is a great game but it will not sell like the above 3 games that I just mentioned. Halo 4 sold 16 million copies in two years and Infamous 2 sold 4 million in 3 years. Here are the links if you don't believe me: http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... http://www.vgchartz.com/gam... PS4 currently has no AAA system sellers scheduled for 2014 that can compare to what MS has lined up for the Xbox One. Greatness may await but when is it going to arrive? I am getting a PS4 by the way as I do like some of the games that they will eventually have but I am not getting one until next Christmas provided they have some non indie AAA exclusives. @scott182 My point is that they don't have any games coming out that are going to compete with what MS has in 2014. Simple as that. Therefore I have bought the Xbox One first. 3rd party vs. 3rd party? I don't really care if a 200lb pile of shit makes the game as long as it is good. Who gives a rats ass who made the game if it is good? You are pretty typical of the Fan Boy craze if you think that a name makes the game. You are just gonna have to wait like everyone else for Greatness to arrive.
@KingDadXVI I like how you are using sales now to determine quality, I thought that wasn't popular anymore. Look at how much more Gran turismo sells than almost any Microsoft exclusive... Plus resogun is the highest rated game and it's AAA as any game on the bone. And Killzone sf is the highest selling of any next gen exclusive. We all know Sony has the top quality first party teams, Naughty Dog even won developer of the year. The top games will be coming from Sony's first party devs, not from 3rd party studios paid off by M$,
@ KingDadXVI I'm sorry, but absolutely NOTHING correlates in your comment. Quantum Break isn't confirmed for 2014 anywhere. Halo 5 isn't confirmed for 2014 anywhere. The Order: 1886 or Uncharted 4 aren't confirmed for 2014 either but they have about as much chance as those 2 games you mentioned for the Xbone. So... DriveClub, inFamous Second Son, PlanetSide 2, Deep Down, Yakuza Ishin, Guilty Gear Xrd, and an absolute storm of unique, creative and interesting independently-developed games on PS4 that aren't available on Xbone. You said "I don't really care if a 200lb pile of shit makes the game as long as it is good." So indies don't count to this statement of yours? You're using last-gen fanboy crap to try and downplay a more diverse and numerous lineup on PS4 than Xbone can achieve in the time it's got until 2014 finishes and 2015 begins. And when E3 2014 comes around... uh oh! Try again.
KingDadXVI Halo 4 has sold 16 mil ??????? you need to get your eyes checked dude I mean seriously, From the link you have provided it only states 8.69m not 16 mil it's not COD or GTA you know
@KingDadXVI You know when those games are coming out? You could make a lot of money with your ability to see into the future. Sony will have plenty of AAA first party games to match every year of M$ paying off 3rd party devs for games.
So u give no props to them for improving on their exclusive promise? Ur gonna ignore the upcoming releases of new IP's? Their launch exclusives as well? Yeah ur right. They have no games. Fuck outta here.
I have my PS4 and I love it,360 gamer last gen but to dismiss Xbox and say its games are inferior is YOUR opinion not fact pal,no doubt Uncharted and TLOU are great games but if you add up 360 metric against PS3 Xbox wins hands down,sale numbers don't lie either buddy,Gears Of War or Halo sold more than pretty much all PS exclusives combined,TLOU only sold just over a million copies so to say PS has better games and studios is your opinion,MS have a few of their own and way more cash to buy up more,I'm not getting X1 and I love my PS4 but I can admit that X1 launch games are way better
@Belking "This won't go over well here" Your comments never do.
".lol I see a lot of people going with xb1 over the competition next year when games like Titan fall, quantum break and sunset overdrive hits" And at the same time, Infamous SS, Driveclub, The Order 1886 are going to be released, PS4 gamers aren't going to be going anywhere. "Play station hasn't been the same since ps2 " Apart from the fact that they sold more PS3's than the 360, despite the year headstart of the 360. They also had more and better exclusives....PS3 was a great gen. I can see people adding X1 to their homes (im one of them), but no one is going to give up their PS4 for an X1. Especially seeing as the vast, vast majority of games will be multiplats next gen....and we all know the PS4's multiplats look and run better than the X1's.
I know a ton of people who bought PS3 solely because it had a great blu-ray player at a time where regular blu-ray players cost more than the console. So i wouldn't go assuming they sold a ton more games based on base console sales.
There is no exlusive worth the $500 and weaker hardware. not Halo, Call of Titan, Sunset, or the great system seller Killer Instinct.
What exclusive is out for the ps4 that makes it worth 400?
Congratz, on the new console to go with your other console's. The systems both have been smooth as butter the time i have spent with both the PS4 and the XBOXONE.
And Xbox fan bought a PlayStation so what? These two are the newest video game consoles. And they are house hold brand name machines. Of course fans will buy one or the the console. Or in the writers case both. EDIT: Congrats to the writer. I'm glad he's enjoying his brand new One and PS4. He won't be missing out on any great games now. Again, congrats.
I enjoyed 360 games. Had multiple 360's though. Switched to ps3 around 2010. I went with ps4 first this time. Sony showed me they will support their consoles for a long time. The future games will be great, Remote play is a great feature for my lifestyle. I will probably get xbox one in about 2 or maybe 3 years from now and see if the price comes down and see how much support MS keeps giving it like they are now as far as games go. I really don't care about any of the media features, just the games. I will say that if xbox ever releases a feature like sonys remote play and it works good enough like sonys, id probably buy it tomorrow.
The only way MS can make a remote play for X1 is if they use the other windows products to utilize it.
Of course decent gamers who thinks of these as systems not nations, would buy both Respects to u don't listen to anyone else. It's you justification in the end
So I'm not a 'decent gamer,' because I have no intention of buying an XB1 at the present time? What a ridiculous thing to say. Decent gamers are those of us who spend our money wisely by making the best choice for us. For me, Sony consoles are a better by than MS consoles. That doesn't make XB a terrible brand. It just doesn't offer me anything worth my money. I don't need to justify my gamer cred by blowing money on something that's not for me.
Im sure im going to lose another bubble but what ever.... Im going to assume that you are a passionate gamer, i mean you do come to n4g every day to read up on blogs and stuff that has to do with all consoles right? So i dont believe you are a hardcore gamer either, i think thats what he meant by "decent", and thats perfectly fine... You prefer to spend wisley on what you feel the biggest bang for your buck can get you and again that all good. Imo a hardcore gamer isnt one that logs in thousands of hrs on one specific game, a hardcore gamer is one that has to have all the consoles and handheldsand makes it happen to get them.. We all knew next gen was coming and had plenty of time to save up for it.. A hardcore gamer has to mean something... And being a 1 console owner just doesnt seem to fit that discription if you just simply cant afford it its one thing its another when you talk out your ass about how the xb1 doesnt do it for you at all... Their is no way you can be a hardcore gamer and truly not want both consoles or all 3.
@buynit: I don't buy into this argument that 'hardcore' gamers are the ones who play all the games and own all the consoles. If I did, I'd have no time for people who never played the Atari 2600, since that was the first console I had as a kid. I don't own one console. There are currently four hooked up to my TV, and I have several iterations of portables from both Nintendo and Sony as well. True 'hardcore' gamers develop preferences because they've played enough games to figure out what they like and don't like. It's the same with movie buffs. Movie buffs don't watch every single movie made in every single language. They focus on the films in the genres that most appeal to them. They may acknowledge the significance of films outside their preferred genres, but they don't waste time watching movies they understand they won't enjoy. This is why exclusives are important. Exclusives determine one's console of choice, or, in the case where a person likes exclusives offered by several companies, which console they buy first. Sony and Nintendo have provided me with decades of enjoyment. Their exclusives include a lot of games I would enjoy playing. Therefore, I focus my money on those two companies' consoles. I have no problems with MS. I just won't be buying an Xbox One. I'm sure there are also Xbox owners who have no intention of buying a PS4. It doesn't make them less hardcore. It just means they know what they like. If MS offered me exclusives I would want to play, I'd buy an XB1. Since I don't play shooters, though, there's not enough in the exclusive catalogue at the moment to warrant a purchase. I'd rather spend my money elsewhere. It's as simple as that. Am I a hardcore gamer? Certainly. I've been gaming since 'Pong' arrived in the 70s. I owned and played consoles back when gaming wasn't mainstream and certainly wasn't cool.
@buynit I own a PS3, DC, Vita, 3DS, NES, SNES, Sega-CD, Turbo Duo, PS4, Saturn, and a Wii U. I own over 1200 games across these various platforms(about 200 for the PS3 alone), and I purchase more games than I have a reasonable amount of time to play. I don't sell a single one of my games, and I love collecting gaming memorabilia and all those cool little things that you get in collectors editions. I am currently in the process of building a 24x18 foot room in my basement dedicated to gaming at great expense to myself. I visit various gaming sites to keep up with everything that is going on, go to gaming parties with friends, design and program my own games as well as do contract work for indie companies needing a programmer, and take an active part in the online community by discussing and responding in forums. I used to run bulletin board services dedicated to gaming before the world wide web we know today even existed I was still a teenager at the time. I don't own a 360, or an X1. Almost brought a 360 but saw their software support drying up when I finally decided the time was right. Currently I am just too turned off by MS itself, although I find the X1 a decent enough machine, with some appealing games on it. But how, in any definition of the word could I not be considered a hardcore gamer? Just because I don't feel I need to spend money supporting a company I don't want to support right now, just to play a few games that they may or may not bring out in the future? My hardcore gaming nature saw what MS tried to do with the X1. My hardcore nature made me not want to support that, as it would directly affect my hardcore gaming habits should they have succeeded. So no, right now X1 just doesn't do it for me at all. A few shiny games does not excuse MS showing their intentions for the future of gaming. They've gotten better, but now MS is in a position of having to prove their intentions to be in my best interest if they want to see my hardcore gaming dollars.
I tried a Xbox One and had the exact same reaction this guy did. I also had other reactions mostly bad like Kinect wouldn't notice me or my girlfriend and sign either of us in. When I watched YouTube Kinect would pop up and say "listening now" when I was talking and I'd had to say stop listening all the time. I finally just unplugged it after getting fed up. The game install times were also much longer compared to PS4 before you could play them. Xbox One just feels like a huge downgrade from PS4. I also started thinking why would I get games like Assassins Creed: Black Flag on Xbox One if they look better on PS4 at a $100 less. I ended up just selling the Xbox One I just couldn't like it anywhere near as much as my PS4.
I bought an xbox and didn't experience any of those problems. Also, going by your logic, you should buy ac4 on pc since it has the best graphics
No going by my logic I'm a console gamer and I should buy the game on the PS4 where it looks best for $100 less. It's common sense.
By going console you acknowledge its not just about graphics. But then claim that's why its better. Or is it the price tag, because if you're a budget gamer you should go wii u. I plan to buy a ps4 once there's games worth buying. Second Son looks like ryse to me - pretty but not replayable. Deep down looks like the slowest most sluggish combat system ive seen. Drive Club - if i liked driving games id buy forza. The only exclusive to be released next year on ps4 that's of interest is the order and i haven't even seen gameplay (i imagine itll be gears style with steampunk skin). A few extra pixels isn't going to convince me to get a console that wont have dr3 titanfall or quantum break. But i do plan on getting a ps4 eventually. Ill keep my eye on NaughtyDog and hopefully the next KZ will be worth playing. After that there's nothing that isn't multiplat that interests me
I'm SEGA genesis fan and bought ATARI Jaguar
SEGA fans GET HIM.. !
I'd buy both if i had more $$$$... but I dont sadly.
I have the $$$$$ to buy them but I wouldn't have the time to play both of them. =( life is all about gives and takes.
electricone85 statement is a win comment and yet he has all those disagrees. Man this site purposely strives on fanboyism. Who can be the biggest false loser of a gamer is what goes on here. Well this is why some of these websites are so popular because this site finds and submits drivel that people read. Hence boosting up clicks and reads.
We know everyone's a fanboy if they like PS4 better than Xbox One. I say it's more that Sony fans are very loyal to their brand but also they make very valid points. PS4 is more powerful, $100 cheaper, optional camera, and a better gaming console with less focus on TV programming. What's not to like better?
Umm its clear that others out there pay for 100$ more, want the camera, and don't mind the Tv stuff knowing they'll have tons of exclusives to play next year. That's your opinion but what I'm saying to you is there are other out there who pay exactly what your going against. Agghh forget it, talking to a fanboy is like talking to a wall, nothing gets through to you all.
I can't see myself paying over $500 for an Xbox One plus a game. yuck
Can't see myself paying for console (both of them) with barely any games on them and an uncertain future. So that's why I am going to backtrack to older consoles to play. It's a Pimpin' Decision. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
