The console wars have been raging since the days of the Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo. Lines were drawn… Friends were divided… Allegiances were forged… But gamers will always be divided.
I dont own the Xbox One, but I know there is definitely a market for it. It is the reason the PS4 is staying competitive, although I fail to believe when it was a champion. The PS4 will always be a winner in my books.
PS4 is not a "winner", XB1 is not a "winner" , The "winners" are us the "gamers" and that should be on anybody's book.
Thank You V, that's exactly how i feel
Xbone still champion?? Lol! I'm trying to figure out when it even became champion to begin with??
PS4 master race!
the winners are gamers.
@"The camera on the Xbox is included in the Kinect package, boasting features like voice control, facial recognition and the ability to control the menu by waving your hands. The PlayStation camera is less impressive and you have to purchase it separately." Completely misleading statement. The Playstation camera also has facial recognition, voice commands, motion tracking and it costs about $100 dollars less than Kinect. The article is a silly attempt at being impartial. If you're a fanboy, be one. It's better than trying to pass yourself off as a voice of reason when you're clearly biased towards a particular console.
calm down. "The PlayStation camera is less impressive" where did the author ever say that the PS camera can't do any of that? He literally said "The PlayStation camera is less impressive" what's misleading about that? If you think the PS Camera and Xbox One Kinect are on the same level you are kidding yourself. You trying to compare the two, is more misleading than the authors quote. So, as the author said - "The PlayStation camera is less impressive"
Stop trying so had Blaze, you'll injure something.
Calm down Blaze, he does not agree with the author. Your argument wont change anyones mind. Calm down.
Well Blaze is right, the idea from the author in regards to both cameras is that "The PlayStation camera is less impressive"...I use Kinect daily with my X1, I hear people online when playing multiplayer games saying "xbox record that", "xbox snap_ ", its very convenient when used with your cable subscription and party games like fibbagge, my wife loves it with xbox fitness app, etc. it's really a essential part of the whole X1 experience for many users and I think any neutral person looking at the specs and capabilities of both would draw the obvious conclusion that Kinect is more impressive tech than PS camera.
Is that intentional stupidity? What the hell else do you think the author would mean? When you list a bunch of stuff one product can do, then say the other is less impressive, you're implying it can't do those things. Top it off with listing TWO exclusives for PlayStation and then FIVE for Xbox, claiming that the XB1 outsold the PS4, lying about XBL having never been hacked, and the cryptic "not all games are released at full HDMI quality" line... I'm sorry, but how can anybody read this sorry excuse for an article and NOT think the author was a fanboy? Well, I guess if you're a fanboy, yourself, you might not see it.
I think they're both pretty unimpressive. They're just cameras. The software is what makes it interesting, although not that much really. X1's software for Kinect is certainly more refined. However, I do agree with hugs. Trying to play up the Kinect as a crowning achievement when bundled for $100 more than the base unit, despite still being cheaper to buy a base PS4 + seperate camera, and still get most of the same lame functionality no one cares about except the X1 die hard fans based on sales, is a bad attempt at trying to appear impartial. Article also says that the X1 is "catching up"...which it technically isn't doing. it's just doing better than before, despite still falling behind.
Yes, it's time for everyone to be more forthcoming. You're a fanboy, and it's okay for you to admit it. @snookiegamer Bad example, because that same person ended up with bankruptcy and horrendous face tattoo.
"You're a fanboy, and it's okay for you to admit it." I'll never understand how sad fanboys have the nerve to call other people fanboys, especially people like you who do nothing but troll Sony articles.
For $350 Xbox One is definitely the best choice for gaming
Nah. Spending $50 more for the better graphics and exclusives is definitely worth it. Not to mention the ps4 is $329 at Walmart right now. Who in their right mind would pay more money for the less powerful machine?
Better exclusives? Pfft...
I love my XBONE, it has way better games than PS4 for now. Will own a PS4 when Sony convinces me to buy one. But for now, MS is winning in the games dept, and their controller cannot be beat!
its not a champion actually, its losing to the ps4 so its actually a average console. not only in terms of sales, but hardware also. edit: and im sure you keep your bmw in the basement while your kia is displayed in your driveway
Only thing Sony is good at is being hacked/sued. The Xbox one in my house is Champion. Sitting proud on my tv stand. My PS4 is in the cabinet. With a dust cover over it.
If Sony are so terrible, why did you buy a PS4? Come now...get a grip.
You dont have a PS4. Stop it just stop.
MS is pretty good at being hacked/sued as well. It just doesn't make the news as much. Also, where does one get a PS4 dust cover?
It's sales aren't that average. It is still the 3rd fastest selling console in history. Just Wii and PS4 ahead of it. They just look mediocre because the PS4 jumped out of the gate much faster. PS4 and Xbox One sales are both ABOVE what was expected. I don't believe Xbox One will ever catch up but saying it's sales are average is not giving it enough credit.
Nobody even knows XBOX one sales so you're talking out of your ass. Microsoft haven't given any sold to customers numbers for a LONG time. All everyone does is spout SHIPPED numbers and play a guessing game. I for one think it's a lot less than most people expect. Microsoft love to brag about these things usually. lol @ 3rd fastest selling console to RETAILERS.
Actually its the forth fastest, ps2 is ahead of it has well.
Selling faster then the PS2? Im gonna need you to prove that.
The whole tone of this..."Xbox One: Still a champion", it's profoundly embarrassing. Just play what you want to play, stop defining yourself by the electronics you purchase, it's freaking bizarre. Console wars, battle lines...even the language used is reminiscent of little kids playing soldier. I remember being a part of this sort of garbage when it was Commodore 64 vs Spectrum....difference was, I was a kid. Time to grow up, people. Like what you like, play what you play...try not being a twerp about it.
bubble up for using the word twerp!
We are the Champions my friends . Lol
and we'll keep on fighting to the end
we are the champions, no time for losers because we are the champions...my friend :) not until Xbox One beats the PS4 this generation, its not a champion. I would say its a worthy contender. The Wii U is the underdog.
Sony will money, microsoft will money i want to money
I wouldn't call the x1 a champion because if it is, then the PS4 is a God. The X1 feels more like a product that was going to fail completely but entered in a process of changing every bad decision and copy the PS4 in almost every successful decision they made. Now the x1 is having a little revival due to all the price cuts and free games they are giving. It feels like Microsoft decided to take a big loss and after so many failed attempts against the PS4, they now decided to take a big hit in order to move the PS4. That doesn't feel like a champion to me.
Haha, You are funny.
A champion at what exactly? Being behind PS4 everywhere around the world? Having less games?
Champ is what my grandfather used to always call me when I played football...even the years when we did horribly. I always found it strange except the year we actually did win the peewee championship.
It's just a Pro-Xbox article, we don't need to feel all insecure about it. If people want to believe it's 'Champion', then let them. It don't hurt none. Mike Tyson was world champion for approx 5 years. During which time, many other fighters claimed they were the true champion! But at the end of the day, who held all the Belts? ;o)
Reading this article I see the same tired argument being argued again and again. First of all: ‘Dead Rising 3’, all the ‘Halo’s’, ‘Killer Instinct’, ‘Forza’ and ‘Sunset Overdrive’. The first game is on PC as well Killer Instinct and Sunset Overdrive will be soon to follow. The Xbox one is not a console that I would own in the long run. Since most of its "exclusives" are going to the PC eventually. There has only been 3 retail in house Xbox exclusives so far and they are Forza 5, Forza Horizon 2, and HALO MCC. "In terms of multi-player matchmaking Xbox servers always outshine the PlayStation. Remember the last time Xbox Live got hacked?" What? What does hacks have to do with the actual matchmaking? NOTHING! But if we want to actual talk about match making http://kotaku.com/two-weeks... http://gimmegimmegames.com/... Xbox fanboys need to give it a rest with this notion that XBL is far superior than PSN, its not! As we have seen this year XBL went down just as much as PSN. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
"Fanboys need to give it a rest" is what you really should have said. Making the comment that one console IS superior than the other is just hilarious simply because it's just another opinion being drawn out as fact. Preference IS champion... And that's what it comes down to in the end. My preference is not superior to anyone else's. I can't understand, for the life of me, why we feel this need to validate our purchase/preference by going back and forth on what one can do and what one can't do.
If you enjoy playing on your console(s) of choice, then that's champion enough.
With only a year into their life cycles neither console is a champion, both are contenders and one is deff better than the other but you have to win to be called a champion.
Meh.... MS got my money ( again ) and it was a deal I couldn't pass up. AssCreed bundle, MCC and a year of Gold for $449. I still prefer PS4 but what sold me on getting another X1 was the Halo 5 beta footage. I'm sure most people will disagree with me but who cares.
