Remember when unbelievably ridiculous hyperbole wasn't the norm in opinion pieces? Does Killzone suck? Resogun? Battlefield 4? Assassins Creed 4? Let's not be stupid about this....give me any of those games over Perfect Dark Zero or Motorstorm. Mario 64 and Halo were the exceptions rather than the rule.
Damn, my Megadrive came with Altered Beast for goodness about crappy launches. #13

Yay....a title telling people how they should be spending THEIR OWN money. That's not a click-bait tactic at all.

Yes, of course early adoption is a risk. But frankly, any launch that has games like Assassin's Creed 4 and Battlefield 4 as a part of it is not exactly a weak one. Yes, they're on other consoles and on PC, but that matters little when you want the latest hardware.

Without early adopters, consoles fail. As for the stuff about annou... #30

There were 200+ reviews on Amazon, with about 40-50 unverified owners. It's also possible that some of the "verified purchasers" ordered and then cancelled quickly in order to show up as a purchaser.
A lot of the reviews aren't just normal angry complaints, the fanboy nonsense is easily detectable. It's not most reports like Yo Mama says, but there is an element of fanboyism in some of the negative reviews.
Hell, one of them gave it one star because his... #9.1.2

Utterly absurd, and you clearly haven't a clue what you're talking about regarding the failure rates of electrical appliances. Your one bubble is more than deserved. #10.2

The industry "standard" for this sort of mass product launch is a 3% failure rate.
So far, the PS4 is well within that limit. That doesn't change the fact that it sucks for those affected, and I'd hope that everyone affected is at least dealt with properly by customer services. The fuss being kicked up on some sites, and by many of the reviewers on Amazon who are not verified purchasers, is more than a little sad. Scaremongering is pretty pathetic. I expect the s... #12

It's too friendly in feels weird. Kinect sucks. There, that should get somebody going. ;) #18

He's an analyst....he's paid to open his mouth. The fact that he's roughly 50/50 (that's being generous) and that the average shmo could get the same frequency of prediction through guesswork is neither here nor there it seems. #11.1

Already have done Pachter. Thing is, gamers will only put money down for stuff when there's games they want to play on the thing.
The WiiU has some top class games already....but not the big guns that people really want. New 3D Mario is coming, then we have Smash Bros., then Mario Kart, then a New Zelda. There should also be a new Metroid and F-Zero, but Nintendo are a bit slow on the uptake.
Add in Bayonetta 2, Donkey Kong and then something like Wii Fit U, then you... #13

Why would you ever want to interrupt a game or show to take a Skype call? Why would you ever be watching a show and playing a game at the same time as well? You can't concentrate fully on either.

I can see voice commands being useful when you have a lot of digital games and scrolling through them is a chore, or even issuing squad commands in a game. Anything else? A button is more immediate. #8.1.1

Actually, there were reports from numerous sites that stated a 100% success rate with the PS4 voice system, while also stating a 25% failure rate with Kinect when used by a Microsoft rep - sometimes he had to say the same command at least 4 times.

And what's better? You don't even need the camera to use voice control with the PS4...the bundled headset is enough. #4.2

Like when Microsoft "copied" the Eyetoy for Kinect? Welcome to the games industry....where ideas are copied, patents run out and the people that actually work at the big 3 companies aren't actually mortal enemies.
They will take the occasional pot-shot to market to fanboy types....but at the end of the day, they all shake their heads at the venom and bile spewed by their customers and go back to quietly doing business with each other behind the scenes.
Look at t... #1.3.2

The feet are on the right side because that's where the majority of the weight of the console is. It will NOT be a problem if the console is not prodded very specifically on it's left side. I actually struggle to fathom why anyone would actually do that in the first place?
If it really bothers you, an adhesive rubber pad will sort out the "problem".

Gamers will complain about something like this, but Battlefield 4 continues to suffer game breaking... #30

I always see people talking about asymmetrical sticks being more comfortable....and I've never quite gotten why? It wasn't said around the time of the original Xbox, it's only something that really came into being with the advent of the 360 controller.
I think people have been fooled into praising asymmetrical sticks for the comfort of the 360 pad, when it was actually just the ergonomics of the pad being really, really good.
I've seen people try to argue th... #20

Why would you want that? That's just dumb...stop wishing for crap that will inconvenience other gamers. Preference is fine, let's just not be stupid about it.

For me, right now, the Xbox One just isn't worth it. Has some interesting looking games, but MS' attitude towards first party exclusives last gen was telling - they near abandoned them. They had their big guns - Halo, Gears and Forza - but not much else. Sony had (and still have) a lot of studios wo... #1.3.8

Why do you care so much about how much they made? I see this sort of nonsense all the time from people...."It made money, so your complaints are irrelevent".
Nope, sorry, not how it works. Appeal to authority on the basis of financial success is more than a little sad. You shouldn't care about that, ypou should care about the fact that the developers have released a shoddy, unoptimised game. And while they were doing that, they were taking the easy way out and reski... #1.3.4

There are videos posted online which show the frame rate drops. Even the PC suffers from them, the game is a poorly optimised mess.
When you're ready to come down off the fanboy perch, the adults will be waiting to discuss things with you. #2.2.1

All other reviewers were at the same event...even the ones that were harsh on the game. Before jumping to conclusions, at least consider that the person reviewing this is simply an idiot, and doesn't represent all reviewers. #1.1.1

Your chance was at the initial reveal. Your chance was at E3. Your chance was in the weeks following both events where you guys STILL couldn't get your stories straight.

MS keep on saying stuff like this, but the thing is, it's their fault entirely. Their fault for thinking the market was ready for those policies, their fault for not having a clue how to communicate things's all their fault. And now, once again, they're trying to pass the bla... #31

And if the same game is available at a higher resolution, with better quality textures and more stable framerate, are you telling me you'd choose the lower quality version? Really?

Games are born of the technical capabilities of the hardware they're played's that simple. With your argument, Sega should be releasing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Xbox One at full price. It's a great game after all, why wouldn't you pay $60 for it on Xbox One? #111.1

And if the console spec is too low, or too restrictive, developers will be unable to push those gameplay experiences as far as they'd like to go in terms of immersion, in terms of improved AI, in terms of texture quality and overall fidelity.
If you truly think that gameplay is completely divorced from the technical side of things...well, I don't quite know what to say, other than you just don't know how game development works. #112.1
