I have to give credit to Microsoft here, I know its only a very very small thing they are doing but in the end at least its something. XoXoXo

JasonKCK1460d ago

How is pretty much unlimited storage a small thing?

Oh wait! clicked on your name, that explains everything. This is your attempt at downplay and damage control. I get it.

LexHazard791460d ago

Whats up with the hugs and kisses? Thats some girly shit right there.

If your a female disregard and apologies.

FanboyKilla1459d ago

A small thing? I have both systems, and in terms of software, online, and amongst other things, xone is years ahead of ps4. I mean with every update xone is seperating itself further and further away from ps4. While ps4 waits to see what xone does so they can tack it on. Lol meanwhile sony (firmware 2.08976543214.4579 is coming) still waiting. Oh thanks for giving me a video edit like xone had since launch. Even though i see no where to watch them, i mean other players vids. Why would i go to facebook to watch game videos? Years behind my friend.

Someone is playing nice now to build them bubbles up.

BX811459d ago

@ psyxon
It was a jk directed toward xisasuke, because he has one bubble.

No_Limit1460d ago


Agreed, glad you have finally jump in!

colonel1791459d ago (Edited 1459d ago )

Now I completely agree with you Sasuke! (See, you do write good comments!)

I have been a PlayStation supporter for a long time, but I am loving how Xbox One is getting constant updates to make it better every time. For I can see, is that the updates are monthly and full of features.

Sony needs to improve the PS4 ASAP. They take their time, and I said it time and time again, that they like to be secretive and don't listen to fans when it comes to features. That was the only thing I hated about the PS3, and I suppose it's going to be one thing to hate about the PS4.

I really wish Sony was doing the same as Microsoft. They have done like 5 updates since release, while PS fans keep waiting for requested and MISSING features.

I love my X1!!! Idgf what a hater got to say! Going all digital from this point on!

tgunzz1460d ago

Haha! Kudos to you....

zeuanimals1460d ago

Lucky. Data caps for me so I can only download so much before I get charged.

V0LT1460d ago

This is exactly why caps is a negative thing. In the end it is going to hurt companies selling products.

DJustinUNCHAIND1460d ago

Way to do your part in helping the developers and the environment!

Volkama1459d ago (Edited 1459d ago )

I'm all digital myself, but at the same time I can't stomach the digital prices so I end up just not buying anything :(

I'll probably pick up both freebies next month though, and I'll pay up the stupid prices when some good games come out (that I can't get cheaper on PC).

shinrock1459d ago

This what i've been waiting for. I haven't brought a disk sence i got myX1.

Infamazdre1459d ago

I'm half and half I still like the physical media but at the same time it's so nice not having to put a disc in and just switch between games..I thinking about going all digital but idk man

Harmy6661459d ago

I bought all he launch games on disc, but after that, I'm digital all the way! Even though I do love my physical copies!

BallsEye1459d ago

Another update?? Damn!!! I just can't keep up with the updates! Awesome! What's best is that it's not just bug fixes but new features all the time :)

Just got my XB1 y'all ! I'm glad I'm a multi plat gamer. PS4 and XB1 FTW. The only negatives I have about the XB1 so far is the controller isn't as comfty as the Dualshock 4 and the install times for games. Other than that its a really cool console. Kinect is really really impressive so far. Can't wait for E3 !

tuglu_pati1460d ago

I prefer the Xbox One controller better than the PS4. Although i like the PS4 controller very much, I just think the XBO controller feels better in my hands.

BX811460d ago

Yeah I like the xb1 controller better but the dualshock 4 is way better than the ps3 controller imo.

towelie12881460d ago

I agree I prefer the X1 controller aswell
But the DS4 is way letter than the DS3

Tempest3171459d ago

I really dont like the x1 controller tbh...the triggers and thumbsticks dont have enough resistance, too easy to push/pull too far. The haptic feedback is nice for some peoplim sure, but the triggers almost never vibrate by themselves, theyre vibrating when the entire controller is vibrating, which means the triggers tiny little motors are totally overshadowed by the primary motors. The DS4 honestly is the best controller design ever. The triggers are perfect, thumbsticks are nice and tight. Feels amazing imo. X1 is a good controller, ds4 is great.

IVanSpinal1460d ago

You need to play like 20 hours,
best controller

Volkama1459d ago

But the best controllers feel good immediately...

I'd say both next-gen consoles have great controllers. The 360 controller is still very good as well, I have no issues at all going back to it (for PC games).

LexHazard791460d ago

Congrats Sayain, XB1 is my next purchase to put next to PS4 aswell. Glad your your enjoying it.

ITPython1459d ago

Why would you buy an XB1 now? You could have waited a few weeks and gotten it $100 cheaper.

marlinfan101459d ago

the xbox with kienct is a better choice

ITPython1459d ago

Why? Are voice commands really worth $100? And can't the XB1 use a headset for voice commands like the PS4 can?

ThatOneGuyThere1460d ago

wait, is the xbox still limited to only external drives? or is the internal drive finally upgrade-able?

marlinfan101460d ago

Xbox one has external, ps4s internal

HugoDrax1460d ago (Edited 1460d ago )

Internal: 500 GB
External: 16TB Max

Internal: 2 TB Max, until 2.5" HDD larger than 2TB become available.
External: Currently not an option

I only have the stock 500GB HDD in my XB1 and PS4. I've purchased majority of my XB1 games digitally, and currently have only 68.8GB available for my XB1.

I still have approximately 350GB available for my PS4. Stick it to the man, RESOGUN, second son, and mercenary kings are the only games installed.

Mustang300C20121459d ago

Actually the size limit if you even want to call it that is 32.5TB

SwiftArsonist1460d ago

u can actually upgrade the internal but it voids your warranty

JasonKCK1460d ago

Why would anyone care about the internal drive when the external option is easier?

ThatOneGuyThere1457d ago

are....are you serious right now?

JasonKCK1457d ago

So you're saying that an internal drive is easier than a USB plug in play external?

Just stop before you embarrass yourself.

shinrock1460d ago

You can hook up to 2 hdd.

Volkama1459d ago

Storage limits are one thing, but what I'm more interested in is drive speed. The consoles both come with woefully inadequate 5400rpm SATA2 drives, and games simply take too long to load for my tastes.

The PS4 APU supports SATA3, but general consesus seems to be that the PS4 chipset is SATA2 only so peaks at 3gb/s transfer. There does not seem to be any official word from Sony on the spec (which usually indicates it the lesser option). There is still room for significant improvement by whacking a faster drive in there, with SSD (and hybrid) drives a good option.

USB3 peaks at 5gb/s, but I do not know if there are any other access time drawbacks that would make it inferior to even Sata2. Hopefully there will be some big gains available with a fast external drive.

It'll be interesting to see if a good external drive can significantly cut down load times on a game like Forza 5.

ThatOneGuyThere1457d ago

I threw a 500gb 7200rpm drive in my 60gig ps3 and it ran great. still does. so, what ive gathered, is that:

xb1: upgrading the internal HDD voids the warranty, and its kind of hard to do. This FORCES customers to buy an external HDD (which i gather isnt going to make anything load faster, just add more space)

PS4: lets you do whatever you want while not voiding the warranty.

So stupid, MS. I thought for sure they had improved this gen. Thats a pretty important feature.
