Worth The Risk? From PlayStation 3 To The Xbox One

One Hit Pixel: "Thank you Sony, the success of your PlayStation 3 has led me to the decision to buy (and keep) the Xbox One." (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Currently it is a bad risk to take.

Why not just wait for PS4's to come back into stock? Better then shooting yourself in the foot I guess.

Bad risk?

And PS4 is the way to go? I hope you haven't based your argument on the PS4 launch titles, which show nothing of the supposed 50% power advantage!
MestreRothN4G  +   247d ago
Yeah, because Forza's fake shadows and DR3's sub-30 fps doesn't say anything about the powah, right?

You just answered your own argument its only launch we still have plenty of years to find out which console is truly more powerful

Some of us see the difference, obviously not you.
GrizzliS1987  +   247d ago
how about the multiplats that all run 1080p on the ps4 and proven to be better looking? not even gonna mention a year and beyond from now, because it will be a slaughter.

"I hope you haven't based your argument on the PS4 launch titles, which show nothing of the supposed 50% power advantage!"

He could easily base his argument on MS's past. Dropping XB1 (the first of it's name) support, starting strong with 360 then fading more and more into Kinectland toward the end, spending massive amounts of money on ads and timed exclusive content instead of more games, the attempted DRM policies so many people didn't like that it caused MS to drastically change their XB1 strategy (at least for now).

As for the power advantage, the differences in resolution on a multiplat like Call of Duty are a definite red flag. Last gen, 360 got the better of multiplats and much was made of small differences. So far this gen, the differences are bigger and they're in PS4's favor. PS4 is both more powerful and easier to develop for, so that trend will continue.
TomShoe  +   247d ago
It's pretty obvious which console you should get. The one which appeals to you more.

Launch titles are virtually meaningless when it comes to getting a console going forward. Look into 2014 and 2015 and decide which console has games that appeal to you more. Also keep in mind the advantages one has over the other. Do you have a diverse library of games and enjoy indie titles and JRPGs? Get a PS4. Are you a primarily FPS gamer and use your console for lots of media purposes? Get an X1.

If you can't decide for yourself, then just get what your friends get :P
thekhurg  +   247d ago
I see the difference.

Killzone looks better than anything on the Xbone.
BF4 runs at a higher resolution, and a more stable framerate.
CoD runs at a higher resolution.
AC4 runs at a higher resolution.
DR3 runs sub-30fps
Ryse runs below 30fps, often hitting below 20fps.

Launch titles alone are proving that the console, even in its very young age is already easier to take advantage of from a hardware standpoint. It's proving that Sony has built a far more powerful console for gaming.

On top of that, you have confirmed articles stating that even other functionality works better on the PS4. The browser is faster, game installations are faster, voice commands are more responsive, etc...
pyramidshead  +   247d ago
While that 50% is certainly subjective, the PS4 has already proved it is more capable at running game software games with the superior multiplatform games which seem to be dominating sales(on both consoles).

It's a no brainer. Exclusives and games in general will come down to personal taste. Only insecure fanboys like to list wars and say one console has no games. Especially when people seem to be buying the one with 'no games', right? Irony, ;).

Risk with Xbox One? its an amazing console and i have seen BF4 on ps4 and it doesnt look one bit different than on Xbox One, guys its a very capable gaming system
TheGreatAndPowerful  +   246d ago
Killzone, BF4, Infamous, Resogun, War Thunder... hell even COD:G(1080p/60fps+) shows off the raw power of the PS4, compare that to the weak sh*t that's the Xbone which maxes out at 720p.

ZombieKiller  +   246d ago
At least we can curse online.

Microsoft LITERALLY took away your freedom of speech, all while you pay for it and you defend that?!

If COD is 1080p on PS4 and 720p on xbox 720(p) and Activision and Microsoft have been in bed for the last 7 years, that has something to say in it's own. I think even Helen Keller can see that one.

Yourhead is "in the cloud" a bit too much.

sorry you are very wrong ,it must be decided on games ,there is no doubt for now MS is having better games and their future anouncced games are more than waht sony has announced ,yeah at e3 sony will reveal more but MS will also do it they will also reveal more gams and there is no doubt sony is having 14 studios and MS is having 24 studios which all are working on new projects for xb1 ,but most of them are new but it is only just a step ,when games will come out i believe they will be great becasue of people working there and MS is recruiting more and more people evry day ,yes there is alsomost 10 more job places announced from MS studios ,they also needs more games and they are on their way as for sony they were always great and will be great but games and amazing games will be on both ,if people cant buy both at once ,i will recoomend them to buy at once and then other and now its all on them to waht they buy first ,i will recoment waht they like more ps4 or xb1 , by any one of them and then switch to other next year.i buied both buy pre order ,i cant miss halo 5 ,uncharted,quntum break, infamous ss,order 1886 ,titanfall,sunset overdrive,fables ,project spark and many more .thats why i buied both.

At the moment the xbox has a bit more going for it but less future potential.

PSN, please.

Are you already done with Resogun? Ac4? Trine 2? BF4? Warframe?

Have you even tried they?
Mister_Dawg  +   247d ago
I'm bored of this idea that the xb1 has less potential. Everything about the xb1 shouts of variety. Variety in the way it can be used and interfaced with. Variety in the media it will be able to play. Variety in the games, much more than with the 360 where I agree fps and driving games were more prevalent.

MS is really going hard for games this generation by building up loads more studios dedicated to games.

Just because the PS4 is more powerful doesn't make its future brighter. Many of my pc gaming friends have way more powerful rigs than me, yet I can still play the same games they can. On the odd game, like metro or crysis3, I have to drop some AA but so what, the gameplay experience is still king and the game still looks totally amazing.
XB1 games will look fantastic and so what if they have to drop a little resolution to achieve a playable frame rate. So what!

I play alot more games not just on PS4 ( I do not keep my gaming experience isolated to single platforms)
Resogun is an ok game that feels more for the VITA

Cant people just be open minded and accept others choices?..if you want a ps4 go for it and if you want an xbx one pls go for it..its every gamers damn choice and everyone has their preferences ...damn.
d0nni3  +   247d ago
Neither purchase is a risk at all, games will come for both systems with something significant that will make it stand apart from it's competition.

To say Xbone won't shine in it's way is mindless and quite frankly pathetic.

The PS4 will have it's quality and anyone saying other wise is deluded

I'm with you, we need to learn to respect each others choices but it's not going to happen. For some reason the internet decends into bitching and complaining where everyone seems to have to justify there life choices by trashing the opposing view.

I love my PS4, it's awesome. I don't own an Xbox one and my justification is my friends are playstation owners so to enjoy games with them i have to play on playstion and i'm happy with that. When the games come for the Xbox One i want i will buy one and get the same amount of enjoyment as i do from my playstation.

when it comes down to it, we are all pretty much getting the exact same experiance but we still insist on slinging mud, it's world we get when we don't have to be held accountable from what we say, this is an almost anonymous platform, if we were all stood face to face i'm sure a lot of people would change there tone and would be a lot more acceptable and the ones that weren't would be kicked to the corner to have there little war amoungst themselves.
joab777  +   247d ago
First off...stop with the launch title absurdity. As if Forza Microtransaction 5 or more zombies is a reason for me to buy a console. I did pre order an xbox one and if I hadn't got the last ps4 at walmart, I wouldn't hav cancelled it, and I would hav been happy. But, not b/c of xbone's launch games. Yes, I got a ps4 and I am buried in games right now...and I tried dcuo and its amazing on next gen. No, I would have been content with an xbone b/c I like the tech and I plan on buying one eventually. The prices r not bad compared to last gen and xbone does have some good exclusives launching in 2014. So, while its always a risk, especially if ur friends r on psn, u can b happy. And save up and when u can, grab a ps4. At least right now u can play all the multiplat games in glorious fashion (though ac4 on ps4 is stunning). And if u love zombies and ancient rome, u will have something to playwhile u wait for titanfall.

Just goes to show what poor judgment he has—and that's not even talking console preference. Why would you return a PS4 when you can resell it for more and use the profits to buy extra stuff for your new system? It doesn't make much sense, much like the logical leaps he takes in the article.

@fishy1

You won't lose the warranty. The system is still under warranty. I find it hard to believe you couldn't get at least $500 on a PS4 that has been used for less than a week. I mean, we have people buying photos of consoles off of ebay for that price.
DigitalRaptor  +   244d ago
LOL. Goddamn.

"But I will see you again in a couple of years, when hopefully the PS4 also heads into Uncharted waters."

He says he's waiting for the next Uncharted. Common sense and logic points to a November 2014 release for that. So that's not a couple of years. That's less than one. Why would anyone have such lack of foresight?

Certainly think so with both consoles. The sales are decent and Microsoft will not give up support, you will get to play all the latest games. Xbox Live is still a breeze to use so you be disappointed.

Not a bad choice at launch because the Xbox One's launch lineup is a little better, but in the Long run Q3/4 and 2014 will be a better sony exclusive year in my opinion

I wish people would stop trying to drag the xb1 games in with the ps4 lacking exclusives. Just because the ps4 doesn't have any exclusives right now doesn't mean that both are weak.

If the ps4 had DR3, Ryse, Killer Instinct, and Killzone, as exclusives, would you guys be saying the same thing, or would you just say the xb1 has no games?

I went the other way from Xbox 360 to PS4 but to be honest right now Xbox One has better games lineup than PS4. On Xbox One you have Ryse, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3. The only interesting thing on PS4 right now is Killzone Shodow Fall and Resogun oh and there is Knack but it's just too boring for me. I know with time better games will come out on both consoles but really if you want to play cooler games for now get Xbox One but as time pass on PS4 will have better exclusives.

Why would it be a risk? If you like what a console offers you, then buy it. If you don't, keep your money. I chose PS4, because I know Sony's track record of bringing strong titles throughout a console's lifespan. Therefore, for me, the launch titles aren't that significant to me. I'm looking forward to what's coming in the next few years.

"Entering the next-generation I was torn between the PS4 and Xbox One, I really could not decide. But I remember being underwhelmed by the hardware they were both packing out of the box."

So he was underwhelmed by the hardware but yet picked the weakest one... I used my 360 primarily until ps plus came along then I went to my ps3 most then I got a pc and a wii u and decided one next gen machine was enough for me so I went with the best and cheapest!

What the author is not considering is that cloud computer could be done in the PS4 too. While the Cell Processor was PS3 wild card (although utilized late in the generation), cloud computing (if ever done as Microsoft is saying) is something that both consoles can do. Sony has Gaikai, and while right now they are only intend to use it as a way to play classic games, that can change in the future as technology advances. There is no advantage for Xbox One even with the cloud. It could have an early one, if Microsoft starts implementing it sooner, but that doesn't mean it will work as well. By all means, it could end up like the first Kinect which advertised so many great features but couldn't make even one 100% as advertised.

Time will tell though. Just like the article say: "Time is money". Developers want money and they will go anywhere they can get as much as possible, and right now it seems that that place is going to be the PS4. Obviously things can change, but there's no way to know.

TheGamingArt  +   247d ago
*Sigh

It's funny in my career that you state this, but I will rebuttal with the YOU don't know a lot about technology if you believe it will benefit single player gaming in todays day and age...... and obviously, you don't know how OpenGL or DirectX processing works * cough * talking out of your ass * cough *

In the current state of Bandwidth and internet speed.... using 'cloud' computing for video game data processing is a joke. Even with a 1gb connection... it's not remotely close to the bandwidth speed between a CPU and a GPU. It's useless unless all the data is already predicted, and if all the data can be predicted, you might as well do the vector calculations locally ahead of time or just bake everything in. Doing the calculations locally and ahead of time could turn out to be more efficient because of the wait time to get the data to and from the server/queue it/process it. Then the biggest issue of all happens with intermediate connection cuts. To handle those events, well.... like I was saying, it's currently pointless to even try to use 'cloud' computing for single player games.

If you really want to argue this be my guest, but you obviously have never programmed a game before....

Not totally true. Gaikai relies on a program running somewhere and the stream being sent to your screen at home. That's why there has been lag on Gaikai services since inception. You're playing, essentially, someone else's hardware remotely. Azure, and the way the Xbox is built with the eSRAM, will process information THEN compressed on the eSRAM and deployed from there. The hardware is built to function with the cloud. That's why MS is insisting that slow connections won't hurt the flow of the game. It's not dynamically processing, it's just removing calculations and easing up hardware requirements.
That said, Sony will likely have a hard time matching actual server numbers. MS is very far ahead and has other reasons for having Azure (licencing as well as a ton of other consumer products that make use of it)
Ju  +   246d ago

sorry to say gaikai is not abig industry it is not even released world wide but is limited to some asian countries ,where azura clod is words biggexst cloud service with most servers and gaikai cloud computing was never designed for graphics processing ,where azura can be utilised in many ways becasue it is having mindblowing servers MS is saing it again and again to utilise it for graphics processing ,if true it will be a great advantage for them ,but still it is not proved we will see it next year especially in halo 5 as rumored but please stop making ps4 look better ,for me both are great ps4 is having better hardware and xb1 is having still great hardware but little cloud processing will help it to compete with ps4,i dont know cloud will make xb1 better then ps4 or not but i can guarentee that cloud will help it staying at same level with ps4 and both will being amazing graphics and amazing art style on both consoles.

halfblackcanadian  +   247d ago
He's pretty on-point with what he is saying. At no point is he bashing the PS4, but for him right now the Xbox is a better value to him (games he wants to play) and he's right, the Cloud is a risk not unlike the Cell processor.
People (expletive deleted) on "The Cloud" but like the Cell it will take a little while to iron everything out and utilize it fully. For those who think the internet requirements will derail it, I think you should all remember how expensive and rare high-speed was when the 360 released...hell, when the Slim was released. Last gen the biggest launch story was that Dead Rising DIDN'T support SD properly...enough bleeding-edge early adopters or the then next-gen didn't have an HD TV to play games on, enough that it was a big deal that DR didn't support sub 720p. We are now at 4k, not to mention the virtual invention of all-touch cell phones (and look where those are now, in terms of gaming), tablets that were a pure luxury that are now (slowly) killing PC sales, and everyday home appliances, from refrigerators to smoke detectors that rely on being always connected. People think the internet will be an issue 3 years from now? Get out of your Y2K shelters and look around.
None of my rant is to say Xbox One will OBVIOUSLY overtake PS4 (PS4 absolutely has the better guts)but technology marches forward...don't count MS out just yet...

The Cloud is not like the Cell. It's going to take more than just having a Naughty Dog-esque developer spend some time with the cloud to realize its potential. Apples and oranges. Smoke and mirrors.

What ever this is, "The Cloud" is a buzzword in gaming. I can't believe people seriously believe that hype.

It is a new way of thin client computing expanding into gaming, nothing more. Sure, MS will offer their own cloud focused API with probably (windows) OS and Dev tool integration but at the end of the day it is some server side services with a client side API to access it. And Azure & Windows is just one platform doing it. Most Unix(like) servers will do something similar and MS will most likely not limit it's clients to windows. So, with that said, "the cloud" is just a new approach harnessing networked resources and it will be available to all platforms (this will include the PS4).

And yet, it is so irrelevant for (couch) gaming. A constant internet connection will be necessary. The bandwidth requirements (and probably synchronous transfers - higher upstream speed??) will be necessary. A typical online game today does not require bandwidth higher than a couple of KB/sec (50-100KB/s is easily sufficient) - but signal bounce times are far more important (<150ms ping required).

If rumors are to believed Titanfall will have troubles getting 720p stable. How's that about the cloud advantage??? It does nothing for those games.

Personally I would have stuck with PS4. Really unlike what fanboys will tell you, it is about what games you like. Sony and Nintendo have more to offer ME than Xbox1. I am not saying Xbox1 wont have great games, but there is only so much time to play games, so I chose Sony and Nintendo. Also the PS4 has the extra power, so I can only imagine what Sony will do with that added power next year.

Right now though I am playing Wii U, much more than my PS4, but that is because the Wii U has a very nice library of games out for it now. Next year at this time, I would expect to be playing the hell out of both systems.

I had all three consoles last generation and will have all three once again. So far I have the Wii U and Xbox One.

I'm waiting till compelling PS4 titles before I purchase one so I will likely get one when Uncharted drops. One of my favorite franchises.

Cannot go wrong with either console. PS4 is an awesome console although as of now i am using it for Resogun and KZSF which are exceptionally good, waiting from some more exclusive, but it is brilliant. Recently i have been playing the xb1 more mainly because i'm loving Forza and deadrisng 3. if you bought the xbox one over the ps4 or the ps4 over the xbox one, you cannot regret it as they both are awesome and will get better over time. Despite having hardware differentiation i think the xb1 will be able to stand up to the ps4 on the graphic counterpart with ease, Ryse proved that and KZSF proved what the PS4 is capable of. In the end either choice is no wrong choice.

On controller arguments I think its just what your used to. Having been an avid xbox pad fan for years I switched to ps4 and liked the pad. After a month I used the 360 again and now prefer the ps4 one. As I say I think people will just prefer whatever they are most used to.

And it sounds like the idiot fell for the cloud power nonsense hook, line, and sinker.

Should we tell this fool that the cloud is nothing but dedicated servers, and storage?

Wow didnt know ubisoft was using the xbx live compute for watch dogs. Cant wait to see what other 3rd party and 1st party do with it.
ziggurcat  +   247d ago
There's no such thing as Xbox live compute.

That doesn't prove a thing. MS has said a lot of things that have turned out to be false.

And all it says is that they changed the name from "cloud" to "compute"

Nice decision would have done the same if someone gave me a ps4 I would sell it unopened to someone who would appreciate it.

You've manage to but together a well thought out and well written article, however you're conclusion has a flaw. I don't give a hot skittle which next gen system you purchase it's your money I'm a gamer not a fanboy I go where the games are. However when someone writes an article that taints the gamepool so to speak I respond. Did you honestly buy into that cloud computing sludge MS was selling. Do your due diligence man, cloud computing and/or tech whatever you want to call it these days has been around since the 50's utilizing large mainframe computers. You honestly think MS is now going to pull off the amazing feat of next gen by improving AI computations with their cloud service with as you stated yourself generic piece of hardware retailing for $500 bucks. I hate to bust your bubble their is nothing next gen about either Xbox One or PS4 they are simply updates like the apps on your smartphone. It's all going to come down to games being developed for these systems including the Wii U.

Just to bring back some fond memories for the OG's and hip some of you Similac gamers to which console and games where next gen by these companies.

1995- The Playstation console left the cartridge riddled world of Nintendo, Sega and it's predecessors behind for CD-Rom based tech giving us games developed with polygons in a 3D space not just sprites in a one & two dimensional world.

Gran Turismo
Battle Arena Toshinden
Warhawk

2001- The U.S strikes back to the gaming world with their behemoth the Xbox bringing a one, two punch in hardware and software. Giving us a built in hard drive in each unit and Xbox Live

Halo Combat Evolved
Crimson Skies
Mech Assault

So in my conclusion if the PS3 is at fault for you making a decision to purchase the Xbox One as it appears MS is taking a risk. Just remember Sony has cloud service as well yet they are not touting the claims of MS.
IMHO if you have not purchased a next gen system yet save it for the release of Titanfall and Second Son because if some promised tech with no proof of life is your deciding factor "Chaka Khan"

I'd hate to see your next article how the cloud came at a cost and I'm not willing to pay.
