The Xbox One is no longer worthwhile to the multiplatform buyer

GearNuke: "Last Gen I did most of my gaming on the Xbox 360 and towards the 2nd half of the generation bought a Wii and PS3 for their exclusives. It was pretty clear from the get go that multi-platform games looked and performed better on the Xbox 360 than they did on the PS3. PS3 exclusives obviously were much better comparatively but the relative easiness developing for the Xbox 360 made sure that most if not all multi-platform were better on the Xbox."

Can we stop getting articles like this. The only console is Ouya.

NatureOfLogic_1167d ago

Why? Will this article make you enjoy your console any less? PS3 got a lot hate last gen. I didn't stop enjoying my console for one second though. I also don't remember crying about every negative PS3 article like Xbox fans do a lot. I would just provide a counter argument and then go about my day. If you don't agree with article at least attempt to provide a counter argument instead of complaining about the number of articles that you don't agree with.

@ArgumentumAdPopulum

I must say I didn't agree with it when it was happening to the PS3 either, although I eventually ended up owning all 3 (sold the Wii). But I will say you are completely right. When this was happening to the PS3 I really didn't care. I ignored it, posted counter arguments, and went about my business.

The PS3 had no games was always shut down by me, and people would try their best to argue against it, and it would always come down to well it doesn't have Halo 3, Bioshock, Gears, and Mass Effect. Meanwhile I was enjoying Warhawk, Uncharted, Ratchet, God of War 2 (PS2 game), Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Heavenly Sword, and Resistance.

@XiMasterChief

Unfortunately the internet is full of trolls, and you're just going to have to put your big boy pants on and get past it. If you see the troll headline, skip it. If you see false information post facts in the comments, and report it.

@People who trolled the PS3 early on
It's unfortunate, but this is a lesson in Karma, and once you start a bad habit you should expect it back 10 fold, and that's what's happening here.

BX811167d ago

I agree, I don't get it at all. All 3 consoles are worth getting at this point. This gen is gearing up to be fun as hell

Brim1167d ago

@ABizzle

Idc what system you own there is no way anyone should disagree with that post

thrust1167d ago

Each console has a game that you want to have for your self!

Wii U has games like mario kart
PS4 has games like uncharted
Xbox has games like halo

You get want I mean tho, each console has exclusive games you want and that's why any person who likes playing games will allways buy every console that is released.

Last gen I owned 3 ps3s, 4 xbox 360s and 2 wiis.

Sheikh Yerbouti1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

Fo'shizzel ABizzel!

People complain about PS3 fanboys, but I always said it was just payback from early last gen when EVERYBODY (esp. media) took a crap on the PS3...until the PS3 devs caught up with the hardware and PS3 took a crap on the 360 with lost exclusives and better graphics on its myriad of 1st party titles. And the 360 fanboys had to choke on crow.

PS4 is out, and they're STILL coughing out feathers. They should take heart that what we read from today's fanboys is childish and spiteful and may in no way reflect the tomorrow's reality. I felt bad about having a PS3...until I played Heavenly Sword.

Heavenly Sword was and still is an awesome game. It shown the PS3 was every bit as good if not better than 360...although I heard all the time the 360 had better graphics. Too bad many skipped out of the PS3 and it may never resurface as an IP.

redwin1167d ago

I have them both and if my Xbox one brakes, I would difinetly get another. Nowhere in this article he said he has them both and he has played them both and he prefers one over the other.,

CorndogBurglar1167d ago

I'm pretty sure he was just joking around. The dead giveaway is when he mentioned the friggin' OUYA!

Tctczach1167d ago

I love that you use the hate on the PS3 from 8(?) years ago to justify the Xbox One hate. Grow up.

horndog1167d ago

Why?? Because it isn't news. These OPINIONS are getting pretty old and fast. Go play some indies.

XiMasterChief1167d ago

No, because we articles like the time. Also why is it you had to bring up the this?

Potnoodle9991166d ago

@ABizzel1
Very well said sir! People like to act like trolls are a new thing but xbox is getting exactly the same treatment as the ps3 got :) It's just a different set of trolls, but some people have valid arguments and I think that all of this negative reception to the xbox one is justified because it happened exactly the same last gen :D
#dealwithit
(haha I couldn't resist...)

Dontworrybhappy1166d ago

I think its more of a, "I'm tired of seeing the exact same fucking news stories everyday". At least that's how I feel. What happened to the games man?! All I see is people talking about resolution, exclusives, and the damn console wars anymore. I miss my gaming site. :(

VegasDawg1166d ago

When you come to this site; Is your eyes closed? This place is loaded with nothing but whiny PS fans lol. People like you confound me. It's right in front of you but you can't see it.

Seafort1166d ago

@VegasDawg It wasn't when I first joined this site. It was an Xbox stronghold. That's when the PS3 was getting all the stick from xbox fanboys and the media.

Karma's a bitch and now the shoe is on the other foot the xbox fanboys don't like it.

I'm in neither camp as I'm a PC gamer and hated by both sides :P

starchild1164d ago (Edited 1164d ago )

That's funny. Anybody that was around on N4G at the beginning of last gen can tell you that the Sony fanboys and Microsoft fanboys dished it out to each other pretty equally. The Sony fanboys weren't the innocent victims they try to portray themselves as.

The PS3 was my favorite console last generation and the PS4 is my favorite console this generation, but I honestly don't think the hate the PS3 got from Microsoft fanboys and the media was even half as bad as the hate towards the XB1 today.

nicksetzer11167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

This article is absolutely hilarious, PS3 must not have been worthwhile either right? As it had a lower res and framerate on most multiplats, especially early on. Nowhere near as many titles shared full parity (natively) between last gen as have this gen so far.

@augmentedadplum Sadly the only ones who seem worried about the disparity (whcih is occurring less and less often) are PS owners, you seem to think the xbox owners are upset about it....

ABizzel11167d ago

Unjust or not (in most cases unjust) that was the opinion of many at the time about the PS3, until Sony proved that the PS3 was powerful, was worth it, and had amazing exclusives.

But that original stigma burned the PS3 in the US, where the masses are generally uninformed and just go with whatever they here rather than try to experience things for themselves, and it never really recovered there until the PS4.

Unfortunately for MS they're in a similar position, except the hardware performance battle can't be won by them, which is why they need to win the PRICE and games battle like they were doing with the 360 early on.

NatureOfLogic_1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

As someone who has never owned a Xbox before, I'd say the same was true for PS3 last gen. I just had deal with and still enjoy the multiplat games for what they were. Xbox fans seem to have a hard time doing that.

MysticStrummer1167d ago

"PS3 must not have been worthwhile either right?"

Whether it was or wasn't to each individual there were plenty of articles saying it wasn't. XB1 will see a lot more hate/doom articles before it catches PS3.

gootimes1167d ago

@Nicksetzer1

Obviously Xbox fans are upset about the disparity, how many people on these forums bring up the fact that the disparity is "Occurring less and less often" and cloud this, dx12 that SDK this. PS3 fans dealt with it in a mature way and X1 fans can't move on. Obviously PS4 will have a hardware advantage through it's life, meaning in one way or another games will play a bit differently on it, not necessarily just a res difference.

strangeaeon1166d ago

What I find amusing is people crying about how bad Xbox 360 fans trolled the PS3 early on, but I was here with a different account and I recall Sony fanboys being even more obnoxious. You guys think you had it bad last gen? Try being a fan of the first Xbox, Sony fans treated us like a pariah back in those days.

metalmatters1166d ago

@strangeaeon yes but back in the xbox 1 days(the first xbox smh MS -__- even the name...) anyway back then, the internet was not full of n4g sites, yes the first box was sort of hated, but that was because MS was new to the game, everytime a new player comes in, its bound to get some fire. It was more powerful thats for sure, but at that time PS2 had so many exclusives, MS had to show why their box mattered and they failed at that. They caught a brake with the x360 but that was partially cause of Sonys arrogance.

This time around MS thought they had the fanboys in the pocket, that theyd be blind enough to play by their rules MS saw fit like it or not. Turns out we dictate the pace because we are the ones with the money, they forgot about that small detail.

Karma is a Bi*** and now its biting all you xbox fans left and right. PS3 was blasted to hell all last generation, even when it got better in the later years with better exclusives than xbox, it was still getting blasted with the whole cross chat, xlive is better argument. I was there I saw the whole thing unfold, Sony lost millions of customers because of xbox trolls going way out of their way to make sure the PS3 was seen as nothing more than a George Forman grille

If this was a "game", Microsoft would know it and act accordingly.

The article is bit disingenuous, but at the end of the day, this is an industry, and there are often harsh realities to accept.

go play some umm idk you dont have great games.

Evilsnuggle1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

I Laugh when xbonefanboys cry about how unfair gamers and the media have been to x1.
The gaming media destroy the PS3 in the early years of its of the PS4 . I didn't care Because preferred OG Xbox over PS2. OG had better multi platform game and my choices of exclusives. Also I was blown away by Halo . And yes the gaming press were doing their job. Sony made a lot of promises That they never delivered On like toy story graphics. Don't get me wrong the cell was cutting edge technology. But not even Sony could utilize the power of the cell CPU. Most game website and gaming media had 2 different reviews of multi platform games and the 360 version was always had a higher reviews score . The gaming media ridiculed PS3 for under preforming verses 360 a lower price console as they should have. But in now the PS4 is far more powerful than the x1 at the same price or a higher price. The PS4 multi platform preform much better than on x1. PS4 has 1080p vs 900p is almost 50% more pixels and 1080p vs 720p is over 125% more pixels. Also multi platform game have higher and better frame rates on PS4. Same review from the so called gaming media for both the PS4 and x1 the so called gaming media. The gaming media never point out the best version of games . The gaming media is not doing their job they should point out every different in multi platform games and help the consumer decide . Help the consumer make it's own intelligent choice. Not worry about offending fan bases or advertisement dollars .

The so called gaming media killed the Sega Saturn Because it's weakness in 3D never in my life have I seen a game console get so much hate as the Sega Saturn. But Microsoft has deep pockets and spend more on advertising than any other company of all times in the gaming industry and the gaming media don't want Microsoft to stop spending money so they turn a bind eye.

Keltech1166d ago

I remember '07 in the magazine section at Walgreens, seeing a magazine (idk if it was GameInformer or Gamepro) and on the cover it had a pic of the PS3 as a George Forman grill. I was smh thinking; I never seen this before, a neutral game magazine posting this on the cover?. Remember reading xbox fans on here, saying how xbox was a better value when they were paying $400 for a machine that had no HDMI, no wifi, and buying a HD player separately. Like abizzel said above, just move on don't be disingenuous and when someone post a lie reply with the truth.

BillytheBarbarian1166d ago

The Saturn hate was bad. But that was Sega of Japan's fault. Realize if it wasn't for Sega of Japan it would have been the Sega Playstation.

PS4 + PC is the way to go if you're all about multiplats. PC you get the superior multiplats and with PS4 you get the superior multiplats that PC doesn't get.

DeadlyOreo1167d ago

Yeah PS4 & PC is all you need this time around really. Looking forward to Bloodborne!

OpieWinston1167d ago

PS4/X1/PC/Wii U is the way to go if you're "All about multiplats/Exclusives.

And if you're all about "Multiplats" just get a PC...Cut the console out of the picture.

You fanboys/fangirls need to wake up and smell the roses.

MrSwankSinatra1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

Clearly you can't read because i was referring to only Multiplats not exclusives and in case you're new to gaming there are Multiplats that PC doesn't get that the consoles do. IE: red dead redemption, destiny, MGSV, final fantasy xv, kingdom hearts etc etc etc..... BTW no ones fanboying here, but obviously you must feel some type of way to bring it up in the first place. Are you a fanboy?

TekoIie1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

@MrSwankSinatra

"BTW no ones fanboying here, but obviously you must feel some type of way to bring it up in the first place. Are you a fanboy?"

Are you implying that someone who is basically saying gamers should own all current gen platforms is a fanboy?

OpieWinston1167d ago

@MrSwank
First of all for the "Superior Multiplats" experience, the best IS all platforms. You've got different friends who own different versions of each game.

As well as exclusive DLC on a platform that you like, for example some people who are really looking forward to the Destiny content on PS4. They'll pick up the PS4 version of Destiny, and they like the Exclusive content of The Division on X1. They'll pick up the X1 version.

You were suggesting 1 to 2 platforms is "The Superior Multiplat" experience for everyone...When in reality each console has their own multiplat benefits...Including Wii U, as certain games like Rayman legends have cool exclusive content for Wii U that some would enjoy.

And yes...You're the fanboy because I've seen your previous comments and you love to bring up PS4 in an article that has nothing to do with it.

If I'm a fanboy for owning all platforms (Aside from Ouya....YET) then I guess that you've proven my point.

All_Consoles1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

What exactly makes ps4 multiplats superior? It's all a preference depending on what controller you like and what service is better for you and your friends or which exclusive content in multiplatforms you prefer

Insomnia_841167d ago

I never understand the "friends" thing. Like "I bought X consoles becausenmy friends got it too". Never in my life will I make I mistake just because my friends do too. There's no logic in that. No common sense. Those with a brain of their own get what's best, period!!

TekoIie1167d ago

@Insomnia_84

"Those with a brain of their own get what's best, period!!"

And to some enjoying a game with their friends is really the deciding factor in whats best.

memots1167d ago

Dat grass blade said otherwise last gen

metalmatters1166d ago

yeah but all my friends got a PS4 now, because its the better console. The general consensus says the PS4 is better, thats why all my friends got it, thats why I got it. That your friends own the same console is just the icing on the cake.

You mean now that we're starting to see parity in resolution on multiplats? GTFO!

NatureOfLogic_1167d ago

Xbox One hardware will always have inferior hardware compared to PS4. EA access, the cloud and even parity won't change that. According to sales, I would say most already seem to understand this.

Dewitt1167d ago

Even parity won't change that?? I don't even..

darthv721167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

Genesis had inferior hardware compared to the SNES, did that make the games any less fun to play? Or the platform less desirable to own?

@below, it shouldnt matter if they are equal or not. there is no rule that says in order to release a system within a specified generation...that system must be equal to or greater than the others with the same generation.

there will be games that are only available to a platform and if you want to play those games then you have to get said platform. If down the road those games get released on another platform (including PC) then so be it.

It just means that now there is more opportunity for those who did not get the game when it initially released on the original platform. That in no way invalidates my choice to get the game when it first came out or even to pick up a remaster for another platform if i so desire.

Parity or no parity, there IS reason to have an XB1, a PS4 and a Wii-U and those reasons are based solely on the personal choices of the individual. No amount of graphs or charts or lists is going to change the personal desire of a consumer.

NatureOfLogic_1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

@ darthv72, I didn't say that Xbox One was less fun to play. I'm just tired of Xbox fans acting like a few games that are not very demanding reaching 1080p makes the hardware of PS4 and X1 equal.

HeWhoWalks1167d ago

Parity has nothing to do with hardware strengths. In fact, it is WHY the "parity clause" exists in the first place, to put the system(s) on equal footing, regardless of technical superiority.

OfficerDewey1167d ago

I agree with you there. Parity is only for the big publishers like EA and activision. It will show on their big games.

One thing i know is that others will play fair to a consoles strength. Also UC4 looked better than all the cgi trailers MS showed(imo).

DigitalRaptor1167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

What's that?

You believe that the parity the has been reached in cross-gen games, indie games, and old isometric PC games represents what will happen when games are no longer being constrained by last-gen hardware, and games become more and more complex?

Parity on NEXT-GEN games is far from "starting".

And if a developer is aiming for parity and truly means it, they will ignore any strengths of a particular console in favour of keeping both versions the same. Pound for pound, PS4 hardware is still around 50% stronger in most areas than Xbone and developers would have to be pretty disrespectful to maintain parity when that is the case, particularly if there is a PC version that has all the bells and whistles.

Controller preference, where friends exist, now the ea subscription service, etc... I dislike articles that try and give definitive answers based on their opinion and preference.
