Xbox One and Titanfall bundle makes the Microsoft game console a better deal than the PS4

The Xbox One is now available in a bundled package with Titanfall, the most eagerly anticipated game for the console so far—and the retailers Walmart and Best Buy recently cut the price of the bundle to $450, from $500. (TitanFall, Xbox One)

"Buying a game along with the PS4 would bring the cost up to $460. If you wanted to add the PS4's camera, that adds another $60, bringing the total price up to $520"

Here is a classic example of something known as the "grasping at straws" logic.
Edit: As Abash said below, you would need to add the $60 you need in order to get the Xbox Live subscription to the Xbox bundle price

Not really...

Pretty valid point...

But there are counterpoints
Abash  +   368d ago
It's just pretty dumb logic. I mean one can easily say "Sure you get Titanfall and the Xbox One for $500, but you need to buy a $60 Xbox Live subscription to play it making the actual price $560"

The fact is the PS4 is still only $400 and the Xbox One is $500

Lol. This is the silliest thing I've heard in a long time. You can buy a ps4 and ps plus and get a bunch of free games and a lot of free to play games vs getting an expensive xbox one with titanfall. Until the xbox one is 50 percent cheaper than the ps4 it can never be a good value in my opinion. Ps4 is over 50 percent more powerful with the amazing ps plus as option which is way better than xbl.

Unless a ps4 is not working correctly and is being sold at an inflated price the xbox one is never a better deal. If you only want to play titanfall you can get a pc or xbox 360. People can like the xbox one over ps4 or whatever else and they can love and prefer the games but when it comes to common sense like which is a better value, which one is more powerful, which one has better online service when it comes on to value etc etc then ps4 wins. To each their own

The day you buy your ps4 you can start playing games on psn without ps plus or buying any games

@abash Xbox one is not $500, it's $450 and comes with Titalfall, and why would you add the cost of xbl and not ps+? We forgetting ps4 doesn't have free online anymore?
Death  +   368d ago
If you want an Xbox One and Titanfall, the $450 is a great deal. If you are looking for a PS4 and Infamous, you are still looking at $460. The buy in price for both consoles with their hottest game is pretty much the same today. If you are also in the market for either companies camera, the Xbox One becomes the better deal since it is included in the box. It all depends on what you are looking for.
Neonridr  +   368d ago
@Death but you do need Live to play Titanfall, you don't need PS+ to play Infamous. So you have to factor in the price.

If you add in the PS4 Camera, then they stay the same overall, but since the Camera is an option, the PS4 works out as the better deal.

Now when Titanfall 2 rolls around and it releases on the PS4, then you have to factor in PS+ pricing as well.
truefan1  +   368d ago
Is this really what gaming has come to, arguing about $10 price differences. My question to the typical aggressive ps4 fans ( heavy, hatsun, Abash) Why does a good XB1 deal make you that mad?
Death  +   368d ago
Yes, if you want to play online with either console you have to factor in the subscription. The Titanfall bundle does include a 1 month subscription for free so if you want to get more than a month out of Titanfall you will need to subscribe. For $450 though you can grab the bundle and play when you get home at no extra charge.
darthv72  +   368d ago
@miku...PS+ on the PS4 is severely lacking in the free games as compared to the PS3. So while you comment about sign up for "ps plus and get a bunch of free games and a lot of free to play games" is valid...it is also slightly off target.

Currently on the PS store i can find 2 free games (Resogun and Dead nation) listed for PS4 as well as 4 free to play for the PS4. PS3 has much more to offer in both regards (12+ for ea.).

im not disagreeing with you but just trying to put your comment into the correct context.
No_Limit  +   368d ago
It is $450 with Titanfall and including Kinect vs. $460 for PS4 and inFamous. How you guys keep forgetting to add PSN plus on PS4 while adding it to XB1 is just comical. The Titanfall bundle comes with one month's Live BTW.

Edit @ xHeavXx,

So are you saying that PS4 owners like you will not get an online only game like Destiny when it comes out and will only going to stick with single player games? Com on, lets be realistic here.

In reply to the people you dont need psn+ to play infamous, aren't you only getting half a game then if thats the case, you know since titanfall is called half a game.
darthv72  +   368d ago
@heavy...yes i am. As i said, i was not disagreeing. But to imply that you get a bunch of games when its currently only 4 free to play and 2 PS+ for the PS4. That is why miku's comment just needed a bit of clarification.

And obviously the number of games will increase over time. no argument there. But back to the main topic, you dont need PS+ to play the F2P games. You do need it to get the free games and to play online which I:SS does not have multiplayer.

We can all agree on that point.
dedicatedtogamers  +   368d ago
The only missing part of this article is the irony that the PS4 is still outselling this "deal".
PONTIAC08G8GT  +   368d ago
The pricing is accurate though no matter how you want to spin it if you look at just the numbers.

One system costs $450 and you get a free game. Another system costs you $460 with a game. And if you want the camera, add more onto the PS.

Now that's just looking at the systems as "equals" and we all know they aren't. But to the casual person who just wants to buy a system, they may see one as being cheaper and buy that.

And please, stop making it out that you "need" the Xbox Live subscription. If you want to game online yes, just like you need to buy one for the PS is you want to play multiplayer. And you can get subscriptions for $35. Only an idiot would pay full price. And if you buy a subscription, its for ALL online gaming, not just Titanfall. SO everyone argument where "well infamous you don't need a subscription." Ok, what about when you buy Killzone maybe a month later? Or want to play BF or COD? Both consoles you need a subscription to get the most out of it. You want to play online multiplayer, both systems need subscriptions.

Honestly if $10 or whatever the differences is now is so important to you.. ( maybe you haven't got a job or your a student) gaming may not be for you. There's other options though, maybe pick up a ps3 or a 360, their real cheap now and games are like $10.
Oner  +   368d ago
I see lots of goal post moving going on in here, and I cannot for the life of me fathom what is so difficult to understand...

Especially when the specific comparison (as stated in the article) that the writer is trying to make is explained like this in the utmost of basic terms that any reasonable non-delusional person should be able to comprehend.

XB1 & Titan Fall = $450

PS4 + Game = $460

That is factually correct. BUT the problem with that is ***and I cannot emphasise this enough*** YOU CANNOT PLAY TITANFALL AT ALL UNLESS YOU BUY A LIVE! SUBSCRIPTION.

So you are actually NOT getting a "better value" because you absolutely cannot, in any way shape or form, play or use it at all. So how can anyone actually believe/say that is a better deal? Would ANYONE care to refute or explain that somehow? Because I dare you to try.

At least with the PS4 + Game you can ACTUALLY play it, as well as utilize other aspects of the system not locked behind a paywall i.e. Internet, Netflix/Redbox, Hulu etc. along with having access to a few additional FREE TO PLAY titles right out of the box.

Now if you factor in LIVE! & PS+ the value is STILL in favor of a PS4 (and before anyone tries to interject with "you can get LIVE! at a discount", don't forget that you can ALSO get PS+ at a discount, so it still ultimately nullifies each other either way) so on to the new math using BOTH of their retail prices (just as the article uses for their comparo) ~

XB1 & Titan Fall + LIVE! = $510

PS4 + Game + PS Plus = $510

Need I say more? I really shouldn't have too, but I know I still do for those hard headed & stubborn enough to possibly disagree somehow...see the additional things you get with a subscription to PS+ (MANY free games on multiple systems, access to the multiplayer on that 1 game as denoted in the article and so on) make it an even BETTER value.

So in either case (with or without the cost of a subscription based service) it's clear that fundamentally the "value" is with a PS4...and that is what the SPECIFIC topic in the article was trying to convey, albeit incorrectly since all the facts were not presented properly. Lastly (and to finish off all the points the article writer tried to skew in favor of the XB1) the PS4 camera is NOT key for the system to function whereas the Kinect IS for the Xbox One design. Thus it is not a factor to begin with.

And all that above doesn't even weigh in other factually significant benefits like higher quality multiplatform titles and such along with IF you get the Xbox One @ $450 when it is NOT that price everywhere.

well you aren't really grasping if you are just simply reporting facts Heavy. But I get what you are saying.

While it does work out to be cheaper, in all honesty it should have been from the start seeing as it's using weaker hardware.
xHeavYx  +   368d ago
Like Abash said, you need to add $60 for Xbox Live
Neonridr  +   368d ago
true enough, but you can always find Xbox Live deals for cheaper than the Suggested Retail Price.

And had Titanfall released on the PS4 you would have needed PS+ to play it.
Why o why  +   368d ago
@neon....agreed. the sad thing for microsoft is even though there's some value parity people are still overwhelming grabbing ps4s.

In regards to deaths post and in agreeance with your reply, xbl has to be factored into that equation for the simple reason that it's mandatory for that title.

Whats not really being said is that we all pretty much know its the kinect thats hiked up the x1's price. The thing is many people dont see value in that. If the ps eye attach rate was even over 50 percent you could understand the writer factoring its cost into his argument but it isnt. Not everybody wants a camera.

You need one for online multiplayer for PS too. Or did you forget that so your argument looks better? How are you going to play COD and BF online with your PS4 without a subscription?

.....Exactly
Neonridr  +   368d ago
I agree, but I guess with the Titanfall Bundle you HAVE to get Live to actually play it (minus the free month you get with the game). Obviously the PS4 has no Multiplayer only games, so you could still technically play any game on the PS4 offline without the need for PS+.

But nowadays, who doesn't have Live or PS+?

They are both quickly becoming the standard.

No, you don't. LIVE is REQUIRED for Titanfall, PS+ is not for inFAMOUS. That was his point.

OT: Regardless of how we gauge the "better deal" (which I can understand the argument for the X1, to a degree), the PS4 remains the "better seller". Perhaps the consumer has already spoken?

The difference is, Xbox one would require XBL gold before ps4 in this instance.
The free to play games on ps4 do not need PS+ to play online, and the ps4 streaming video apps, and story driven games are possible to play without PS+.

XBL still blocks almost all apps from working unless you have payed for gold.
You can still play your single player games on Xbox one, but you are limited greatly by what Microsoft allows on their systems(there are no free to play games on xbox one).

Business wise, this is Microsoft win, as they force more people into buying in.

Consumer wise, Sony wins for giving a little, while taking away free multiplayer from traditional gaming.

All in all, both need subscription if you are a social gamer.
I just think microsoft could learn a thing or two from sony when it comes to giving back a little, IE; allow apps without paywall.
PONTIAC08G8GT  +   368d ago
You have to remember, people leave out facts when trying to make their argument seem logical. They act like infamous is the only game PS owners play. Killzone, COD, BF, Madden, etc etc if you want online multiplayer you need a PS subscription. And if someone buys an X1 they do need a subscription for titanfall, but they can also use it for all the other games available.

But that just makes too much sense so we'll just go with Xbox you have to buy Live and PS you dont. Simple.
Stunmonk  +   368d ago
@Uber
Guess I am dumb then as I do not play online. There are many single player games to enjoy and hold my attention. So in my case if I wanted to play titanfall I would have to buy gold for an additional $60 making the cost $560.00 Now excuse me while I go hook up rabbit ears to my $1700 tv.
joab777  +   368d ago
Kinda like when ppl told me the 360 was cheaper. I had to pay for gold, for wireless adapter. I had to by their harddrive with an adapter. Cost a damn fortune.

Heres the kicker though. The PS3 was the more powerful machine...and the gap between the PS4 and xbone is even bigger. So, it isnt a better deal. I dont want a camera. Instead I got another controller. And guess what, PS4 will also have bundles and price cuts...but the xbone will never have ddr5 ram.

The price is now $489.99 the price drop is only for a limited time to move some of the consoles they have. A lot of this store over purchased stock and now they have to much and they want to move them out so they are dropping the price to clear some space then it will go back up to $500 so if you wanted one now is the time to get it.
system22  +   368d ago
its not grasping at straws, its a valid point. you get a console, a superior camera/motion tracking system (don't worry i love the ps4 in general) and a game... for less money. less money for the same amount of stuff is in fact a better value. It's especially relevant considering a point of contention for xbox sales was the fact that the ps4 was simply perceived as a better value proposition and why people debated the mandatory inclusion of kinect etc..

If you throw what you get with PS Plus (couple of free games right away) the PS4 is still technically a better value.

You can buy the xbone Titanfall bundle but unless you fork another $60 you ain't playing the game. Let's leave the cameras out of this. For pure gaming purposes PS4 is king.

If you still want to add the cameras consider this: $560 + tax gets you an xbone Kinect and Titanfall with one year live so you can actually play the darn game

For $570 you get the PS4 with any one game, the camera, and ps+, but wait!! There's more! You also get the free games that come along with PS+!! But wait!! There's more!! You can also try the free to play games available for free.

Both offer value in their own ways. For people who want Kinect and what it offers, the Xbox One is probably the best value for them. If someone wants more power under the hood, the PS4 is the way to go. It's silly for me to say that Kinect isn't worth it for other people. I can only speak for myself. I also can't say that better specs are the only way to go with the PS4. People enjoying Titanfall more than Say Killzone don't care that the resolution is cut down a bit. To each their own.

This is a pretty dumb way to look at things. By that logic PS4 could do the same thing and launch a Infamous Bundle for $350. If they were to do that make no mistake PS4's dominance would be set in stone. However Sony doesn't need to do that because PS4 is selling amazing just on it's own merit.

Some of you guys can't add seriously.

The article said the Titanfall bundle is 450 dollars at certain locations

Its cheaper than the Playstation bundles by least 10 to 20 dollars.

Sony fans can hate on Kinect all they like, i love it personally. I don't have to use my headset to talk. I just chat by Kinect to Friends and, its got an awesome camera on it for streaming.

Sony camera is not included its a separate item to buy. So the reality is the x box 1 has more valuable.

Online subscription. Well i pay for a better service on x box 1 so i see no issue. Dedicated servers for first party games is way better than using player hosting,

Here is the difference between xb live and PSN.

Do your research and you'll see this is the truth.

Sony provides no dedicated servers for first party studios! Games currently using dedicated servers belong to studios not owned by Sony.

Dedicated servers are costly to run but servers provide stability and greatly reduce lag and latency for gamers.

Microsoft xbl live obviously is better.

Games for Gold is better on PSN, better game selection, but Microsoft has one advantage over Sony. If they give you games you own them for good. You don't need live you can play those games offline. You own them now.

Sony will not allow you to play those games once your subscription ends So is this better than what Microsoft offers? Games been offered by Microsoft have improved greatly last few months too remember that.

Updates are being done faster through the use of the cloud. Only possible with having live. Sony has a subscription model, but they seem to be less capable of pushing out updates for the PS4.

Disagree all you like this is why i think xb1 live is better.

He never said Live was bad.

He simply stated a fact.

You NEED live to play Titanfall (as there is no single player)

So the X1 doesn't JUST cost £399 after a month you NEED to buy Live.

So it's £438

That's over £50 more then the PS4 infamous bundle.
Jdoki  +   368d ago
@KNWS

Yes, dedicated servers are better, but I've not noticed any major problems playing PS4 games online. This is the only point where there's any advantage for Gold.

Owning the games available from Game for Gold is a weak argument. I've been subscribed to PS+ since the beginning and have no inclination to cancel, so those games are a good as permanent. Also those games don't vanish from your account - they are there to play again if a person resubscribes. I'd much rather have a top quality selection 'on permanent loan', than have a crappy selection given to me.

And how about if you unsubscribe from Live, then most of the XB1's services are cut off as they are behind this paywall?

PS4 updates in the background now while in standby. Your 'updates are being done faster through the use of the cloud' just sounds like you swallowed the MS hype.

Good for you if you like Gold better than PS+ - but don't spout bullshit reasons.

PS4 Bundle with inFamous will rule over XBOXes Titanfall bundle, maybe Titanfall is a great game, but common? inFamous is uber mega game! Story, graphic and Delsin! We dont need any robots :)

Good luck playing Titanfall withou Live.

Also a Infamous PS4 bundle is still cheaper then the Titanfall* bundle that's even without Live as Plus isn't needed to play Infamous.

*Here in the UK at least.

Titanfall bundle £399

Infamous bundles

Also the PS4 has 4 free to play games (that don't require Plus)

So it what world is paying more for less a better deal?

It was already the better deal for me has the games I like.

I think not, lets talk about the steady stream of shity inferior multi-platform titles and cod and bf4 servers with few players in them? Doesn't look like such a great deal anymore. Unless you want to wait a year or probably longer and see if some cloud and a software update for Dx12 makes a real difference. Keep waiting and ill be gaming on a system built for gaming.

Here in the UK the Xbox One is now cheaper than the PS4 on a like for like price
For £385 you get a PS4 with a game (infamous)
For £399 you get a Xbox One with a game (Titanfall)
But add the camera to make it like for like the PS4 goes up to £435.
Of course if your like me & never will use a camera then the PS4 is still cheaper, but if you want to use the same features on both consoles like face recognition etc then yes the X1 is now cheaper.

PS4 Camera is not a necessity, PS+ not a necessity....

The difference is PS4 has a better 'price of entry', you can totally buy the add ons later, and F2P is not dependant on PS +

....oh, and the tiny little fact that it's way more powerful and more comfortable (according to Devs) to develop for. But you know I didn't have to go there, but it's relevant :)

I clearly said like for like.
I clearly said if you want the same features on both consoles
Of course the PS4 is cheaper if you never want a camera & your never going to play AAA games online. Less powerful, yep, but it's cheaper.

I'd still prefer PS4 + 1 year sub to PSPlus over this
