With the Xbox One and PS4 both selling rather well, a more open minded look at the Xbox One games console in the face of its PS4 and Wii U competitors, drawing comparison with old school clashes of the titans.
Both great console's
Xbox One is not a bad console, I just choose not to support MS's direction with gaming.
Like Sonys Play Now isn't part of what MS was originally planning, lol... That's awesome, bash the other guy meanwhile do the same thing yourself, bait & switch, lol...
Godzilla vs king kong, that's good :)
@DOOMZ The atmosphere around here tends to be that since MS did something so unforgivably horrible in many gamer's eyes, that Sony kind of gets a handicap. It isn't a case of "Sony good, MS bad," it's more like "Sony isn't great, but MS is way worse" - it's the lesser of 2 evils. Unfortunately, MS's actions were so bad, that it apparently desensitized the community, so any actions not at "MS levels" is brushed off as a non-issue.
This is a dumb title, the vid is only talking about the XBO and barely mentions the PS4. Figured the vid would focus on both consoles and give both pros and cons of both the platforms.
@horse Well said. Sony for some reason has been getting a pass, even though while nice, their PS4 is ok at best. As is the One. The problem is 1080p is not a pass, nor is GDDR. BOth companies have a long way to go. What's funny is as both companies announce things everything Sony says whether or not it's in the same vein as MS is hailed as the greatest thing to come to gaming. Look at the TV announcement as an example. MS messed up with the DRM and Used game sales. And it has made the PS the haven for some gamers. But just cause Sony never tried to do these things DOESNT make them all about gamers. MS was trying to move in a direction we gamers are clearly not ready for. But that doesn't make them against gamers.
@ThePope 'MS was trying to move in a direction we gamers are clearly not ready for.' That is the reason why there is a problem. MS true focus wasn't about us gamers is was about becoming the center of entertainment for every house hold. While I applaud their efforts, it was done completely wrong. MS direction caused them to only focus on region of this planet. What about the other countries. I am sure EU would love a Soccer Package. Also the HDMI input in EU is ok at best. Grant it, these things can be fixed over time. I do believe that things would have been better if MS said, this is our gaming system, these are the games, these are the specs, functionality, UI; and oh yeah it can also apply these TV functions with Kinect. The message would have gone over a lot smoother. I also believe if this was the case, the DRM rules would have been overlooked because everyone would have been focussing on the games and the functionality of the system.
Microsoft introduces new console that plays disc based games that you own, utilizes digital copies of everything you own for the purposes of sharing, still gives you the ability to sell the games if you choose to, and requires an internet connection once every 24 hours ==== OMG IT'S DRM AND THEY ARE GOING TO RUIN GAMING AND TAKE AWAY ALL OF OUR RIGHTS!!!! Sony introduces new service on which you will not "own" any of your games and need to be online every second that you are playing them ==== BEST THING EVER!!!!1!1!1!!! THE FUTURE IS NOW!!!!!111!!!!!1!!! I can't be the only one that is seeing the glaring contradiction here. Am I?
MS's original direction was to take ownership of physical copies away from gamers. I'm still very skeptical over game streaming, but the negativity towards MS is from the hassle they initially wanted gamers to go through just to take games over to a friends house or to resell them.
I sit here and read these comments from some of you and just can't believe the way some of you think. @thepope You know something, it's actually a direction more people would have wanted to go in if they actually listened to the benefits of what MS was planning on doing instead of "always online" nonsense. It's funny, the people who protest always online are the ones who have internet, makes no sense. Gaming is not a right, it's not in the bill of rights nor the constitution, it's a hobby. It's like getting mad at Ferrari because their cars are too expensive. MS and Sony are not developing these consoles for third world countries or people without internet. MS had the family/friends share plan where you could share your games digitally for free with 10 people you know on Xbox Live, which would have been amazing. They actually plan on implementing that in the future, but it's taken a backseat because people cry about having to be online. I'll be honest, it's a direction I was eager for. @DeadIIIRed MS was not trying to take away ownership. You own the games when you buy them. Such as itunes, you own the rights to that song so when you delete it, you can redownload them over and over again. MS had a plan on reselling or trading your games in, but everyone wanted to ignore that and hate on MS. The future is digital downloading and it's time people stop trying to revolt against it. Also, MS had the share plan, where you could digitally lend/trade/play games from 10 friends on your list. So you could easily share games and play games with your friends. Also, once you sign into your gamertag, you would have been able to access all those games on a friends console, as long as you were signed on their console, through their cloud. You know, since X1 allowes multiple users to be signed in and both could access the games YOU own. @UnHoly_One No, you're not the only one, it's a complete laughing stock on this site.
@unholy one, I am just letting you know I have added that to my list of ps4 player contradictions. In the future you may see your post, I'll give you credit though, their hypocrisy is pathetic. Also ps4 fans refuse to acknowledge how the ratings for Xb1 was higher than ps4. There was a graphic of like the top 8 gaming reviews and 5 had Xb1 higher than ps4, 2 higher for ps4 and 1 draw.
Truefan1, you are welcome to use it however you see fit. I'm just glad to find a few sensible people that aren't blind Sony followers. I like Sony, don't get me wrong. I love some of their games, and I don't wish anything bad on them like most people from the Sony camp do towards MS. I just want people to look at both sides fairly. And treat them equally. Like whatever you like and let others do the same. People think I'm an "Xbot" or whatever they want to call me, but the fact of the matter is there is more nonsense to argue against in that direction on this website. If everyone here was a Sony hater you'd see me defending them, too. lol
Console is not at fault that its maker fails.
...so? Any decisions that the maker makes will affect gamers and developers using that system.
just wanted to say - dont blame the console.
DOOMZ, sony's Play Now has nothing to do with PS4 titles, only past catalog titles... What MS wanted to do was with their XB1. Pretty big difference, in my opinion play now gives a nice way to play past games you missed out on, for me i'll continue to buy disc if i can, but i think it's great for the vita on the go!
@MWONG You only read half the title? Well played man.
I agree both are great consoles, I've come to realize its all about choice, I know some people who love their xone as i love my ps4 :)
Good outlook.. Everyone happy with their choice is important, who made the right one isn't. Its funny tho because you don't really see the fanboy stuff offline.. Ran into a buddy awhile ago and mentioned I was getting the x1, he said he was pumped for ps4 and we both said cool and that was it.. After launch we got together and he was like "so how's the Xbox?" And I replied "badass, love it.. How's the ps4" "Nice.. Ya ps4 is crazy" It made me chuckle.. Isn't that how it should be? But you get online and watch out! Lol
No offense, n4rc, but your interaction with your buddy is NOT the way you interact with people here. If people were able to appreciate their personal choices while simply acknowledging the choices of others the idea of war would cease to exist.
How so? I've never once bashed Sony or PlayStation.. And I certainly have never questioned anyone's desire to own one.. But that doesn't mean I'll accept ridiculous claims and lies.. Sony isn't perfect and when someone wants to attack my beliefs or intelligence, well.. I have plenty to ammo to squash their claims. Fanboys are not regular people.. Lol
Yea the whole console war thing was created by manufacturers to sell more. Since the majority of Americans and people for that matter are followers, people pick a side and rage about the product they picked like mindless drones. Maybe because they have nothing better to do or it gives them the sense that the actually matter. Who cares what sells more. And then you have the lunatics that do because they hope to put a manufacturer out of business. Life as a gamer would absolutely suck underneath a corporate monopoly. I for one am happy that sony and ms are selling well. Hoping the wiiU can pickup a bit because im a bit nostalgic when I get to play since I've been playing nintendo sinc 90'
Well said. As much as I enjoy PS4, love learning more and more about what Xbox one does.... Both have so much to offer.... Amazing to walk into basement when completely dark, telling xbox to turn on, and everything connected to it practically turns on! Edit: N4RC, in person, people may be normal, behind the Internet, I guess you can be anything.... And most do not choose well.....
Yea.. some people take this "console war" way too far.. its like they believe they actually made the things..... your just a consumer...your actually allowed to not like a product you bought..dont have to defend it to the bitter end lol
I agree. For me all 3 ne gen consoles have a lot to offer and it all depends on the person what is best for them. I own a Xbox one and wiiu and love them both but have nothing against anyone who has a ps4 as the console looks great but I picked up the Xbox one 1st as I wanted Forza 5 and KI more than any of the games on the ps4 but once Sony start putting games like GT, lbp etc on the ps4 ill pick one up. Being a gamer is far more fun than being a fanboy.
More like Godzilla (Ps4) vs Godzooki (xbone)
Godzooki used to change size for every scene, sometimes he was 7-8ft tall and could fit indoors with a bit of a squeeze, then they'd go outside and he would suddenly be about 18ft tall.
Sounds like Azure cloud gaming. lol
Both (Ps4/X1) great console's.
Both the Ps4 for and the Xbox one are both good consoles that everyone can agree on. On another note, godzilla would completely kick kong's ass.
No, he wouldn't and didn't....they fought in 1962 and kong walk away with the win......
Depends on who made the movie. American version, Kong wins, Japanese version, Godzilla wins.
the 1962 movie WAS Japanese and kong did win....anything AFTER the original dosent mater
In the end Godzilla would win, by tearing Kong into pieces with his sharp teeth. but i have to say it would be a tuff fight. Kong would throw some mighty punches.
They did, but most don't consider it canon. King Kong is significantly smaller than Godzilla, no matter what movie you look at. Even the smallest Godzilla (Zilla from the 98 American film) is much larger than King Kong. The original Kong is only 18-25 ft tall, depending on the scene. All other iterations of him only ever get up to about 40 ft tall. Godzilla is anywhere from 150 ft to FRICKING MASSIVE! http://media2.policymic.com... They made Kong 148 ft for King Kong Vs. Godzilla. No idea why...
Just because something happens in a movie doesn't mean it would happen in real life… though it seems weird to say that about Godzilla vs Kong. Anyway, two words… Atomic breath.
Here's a box. . it plays games. What more do you want? But no, folks gotta get all political.
Yes, they do. Because politics affects the games on the boxes, and the boxes themselves. And, by very logical extension, everyone involved in making, selling, and buying both games and boxes. NatureOfLogic puts it well above: it's not the console people really have problems with, but the manufacturer. Not the game, but the publisher. (In general; there ARE specific issues people will have with any given product, after all.) It's just that the most effective- or perhaps just most noticeable- method of calling attention to these people or practices we don't care for is to make an example of the product they submit for our consumption.
@ Hicken Yet, most mature adult consumers speak with their wallets. You don't support a company, don't give them your money. It's as simple as that. Yet, people like you, don't buy the products and then talk smack on it non-stop. No one here cares if you want to buy a PS4 or an X1, it doesn't effect anyone else's personal gaming experience. It's the immature who have to take it further and continually talk smack about not buying a product they don't want. Do you see people in your local supermarket standing next to Charmin toilet paper talking smack about Scott's toilet paper? It's all relative. Speak with your wallet and not with your voice when it comes to companies looking for profit. They don't care about what you say, they care about what you buy. Also, it just makes one look insecure when they continually bash something over and over again.
The PS4 is the leading and most powerful console right now. The xbone may not be as good as the PS4 but at least is a good second choice console.
@Tristan Your troll comment has no substance behind it. Try the Xbox One before posting a one sided comment.
I tried COD on it and cried from the lack of resolution.
@ Redey3 The fact that you think COD is a game that would define ANY console shows everyone here you know absolutely nothing about gaming. Swing and a miss redey3, keep your head up and your eye on the ball, maybe soon you'll make contact.
Well it couldn't be about the games nor could it be about features; seeing that the X1 has it beat in both categories, so it must have something to do with releasing in 48 countries vs 13.
I love all this emphasis on resolution from the PS4 side when certain textures on the PS4 have been turned down to achieve a decent frame rate. There are countless side by side comparisons online showing certain games actually looking cleaner and more detailed on the Xbox One. Fact is both consoles are capable of the same graphics and speed, but the hardware in both just accomplish it in different ways. Sure on paper GDDR5 is faster than DDR3, but that's before you factor in cache speeds and transfer speeds between the ram and the CPU. There is a reason why gaming PCs are still running DDR3 ram. just because something says 5 and the other says 3 does not automatically make it faster over all. In a couple of years the numbers won't matter only the games will.
Well Sony has a good track record of supporting their systems and their vision whereas Microsoft do not so why would it be a surprise that customers would buy into that? Look at how many excellent 1st and 3rd party games were on PS3 and into 2014 there are a ton more. Look at all the great PSN offerings (DMC, bioshock infinite, Borderlands 2, Sleeping Dogs, Dark Souls, Hitman Absolution, Battlefield 3 etc.). NO paywall for PS4 features like Xbox One. Where were the games in 2013 for 360? They ignore 80 million 360 owners and concentrate on 3 million Xbox One buyers?! You guys heard 3 years more support for 360 and they releasing almost no major 1st or 3rd party support and you think this is the company that is a better investment? The same people that said you didn't need HDMI for HD gaming and bluray isn't necessary yet now have BOTH? Yeah Sony is looking farther ahead then MS and have far better 1st party studio's as well.
Yes, but my computer its almost double the power of the ps4, but I really like the xbox one games more.
Actually I think the Wii U is better second console. PS4 for the hardcore games, Wii U for everything else. Having a bone is redundant and more expensive with less content.
Both are great consoles but I particularly got a kick out of his description of the WiiU cowering below the battle with the petrified women and children. LOL. And before I get jumped on by the Nintendo faithful I laughed because it was funny not because I hate Nintendo. I have done my bit for Nintendo as I bought a WiiU during their launch a year ago. I love my WiiU and have a great time with it.
Funny thing is i would buy the WiiU in a heartbeat if it had games I wanted to play. That's all I need to get a console is good games and I think that's all most gamers want.
I agree completely. My only bone with the WiiU at the moment is lack of games and more importantly lack of games that make good use of the WiiU controller. They need to make use of that controllers extra features and develop some new IP. I like Mario and Zelda, etc. but they need to develop some serious new IP and get on board properly with online gaming.
Is not about the consolethough, is about the direction a company will try to take to yiu. We know MS tried to implement DRm whuch is why many avoided the X1. I have a feeling MS can pyt back the DRm anytime they feel the need to without giving a single shit about consumers
ps4 has imo more interesting exclusives
Now that is funny
Really what's so funny? Naughty Dog alone would be worth the price of admission alone. They produced 2 game of the years and that's more than all of microsoft studio's game of the years combined. Guess you find it funny that the support from MS for 360 amounted to pathetic levels over the last 3 years. Must be the lack of exclusives and games to play that give you so much time to laugh at people.
My ps4 has been collecting dust since I beat Killzone, my X1 on the other hand gets used every day. I think that really says it all right there.
Yep, that says it right there. For your not overall important, single individual experience.
Based on launch yeah Xbox One is slightly better, but, same could be said about 360 when it came out with more games and exclusives yet now where are the 360 games? 80 million 360's and 2013 had maybe ONE first party titles and Dark. PS3 had way more support and so much better free PSN games which conveniently MS fans conveniently forget to mention any of that. Also all the features that are free on PS4 are behind a paywall on Xbox One. So yeah it's a marathon and one continues to release and support their old system and one doesn't.
The x360 had 600 more games than ps3, and users on average bought 2 more game for their 360 compared to ps3
I like all of my console's. today i will be watching the playoffs with my x1 and i might get some remote play in with my ps4. less fighting more gaming. how does the x1 football app work with the t.v station?
Power, Price and PS+, that's what I get from the PS4. Re-released PS3 titles and heavy amounts of generic indie games, that right there just looks bad, of course this is my opinion. I'm sure after Infamous and or Deep Down releases, my thoughts of the console will probably improve, cause as of now... it's not even worth the investment. As a Sony fan, I want games, Sony needs to sell me on that. If I can buy the game on Steam or XB1 that's not good enough for me to purchase another console. Right now it's the waiting game for me.
both truly underpowered and offer slightly up-rezzed versions of the same-old-same down the road I think the ps4 will be good, not great, but good.. when a few solid games are out in a few years xbox1 will be meh pc and wii u for me for now
Both consoles are good, I just love the innovation of XBOX ONE!
PS4 = Godzilla. Xbox One = King Kong. PC = Dragonzord.
king Kong beat Godzilla. Xbox One > PS4 https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Both consoles have pros and cons. I will ps4 first because of price.
