The eSRAM is too small in this age of deferred rendering. A 1080p frame buffer is too large to push through the fast eSRAM, so devs have to put a lot more work in to try and make it work, and that leads to compromises. #1.5

The best feature of either camera is the voice commands....and those can be performed with the bundled headset mic on the PS4.
Playroom looks a fun little thing, but that's not enough to sell the camera to me yet. But streaming could sell it to some people, skype video calls as well, so it might be essential to a lot of people just for that.
Games wise? Not a lot to excite. Though the next game from the studio behind Little Big Planet apparently uses the camera and Move... #8

Made up what garbage? I don't follow the guy, so you need to tell me what he did that was so dumb. #4.2

The PC port of this game is awful....just awful. Never mind the resolution, the controls suck with mouse and keyboard and really need a controller option. The game bugs out a lot, the driving is awful, often moving left or right with no input from the player while the speed gauge fluctuates wildly. The sound randomly cuts out. Jim Sterling had a bug where the game would no longer let him move his mouse to the left, so he had to spin all the way round to the right to get the direction he w... #4

Kinect will NEVER be a good replacement for a's just not precise enough. It's not precise enough for navigating menus either, so it's only decent function is the microphone, which you don't actually need a camera for.
Well, that's totally worth releasing an underpowered console at a higher cost than it's significantly more powerful rival....good job MS. /s. #7

It's only a war for the fanboys. Everybody else has their preferences, but aren't tw@ts about it.
The most pathetic thing I heard about so far was somebody giving the PS4 console a fake review on Amazon and saying in the text that they were "...doing their part" to help the Xbox. Worst part? I don't even think it was a kid. #4

Of course it will get better looking console is stagnant from launch, things will improve. Problem is, the same holds true for the PS4...that initial hardware disparity will ALWAYS be there, and the One will ALWAYS be hamstrung to an extent by it's memory solution. Workarounds and other tricks will help, but compromises will have to be made a LOT faster than on Sony's hardware. That cannot be avoided. #10

Agreed. Good number, encouraging for the industry, but also telling that a 13 country launch just about matched the PS4's US numbers. Sony still has it's strongest territory to come next week, and then Japan in the New Year.

Console gaming is FAR from dead...they just need to keep up the momentum. #1.1.9

The posts were removed. That's more than can be said of the statement by the French Marketing Director for Xbox stating that the Xbox One is 4 times as powerful as a PS4 when connected to the internet. Blatant misrepresentation, blatant lies about the capability of the console.

THAT is classless, not an over-eager PR guy, because it deliberately spreads misinformation to consumers.

Sony have indeed congratulated MS for their launch since these posts....... #49

It's the same as with the PS4 - there WILL be faulty units in any mass produced item. So long as their customer service deals with it quickly, it's nothing but a temporary hassle. #93

Even if you do replace it - will you be able to load the OS onto it? And even if you can do that, will MS ban you for altering the hardware? Plus, you lose your warranty.

In short, just wait for a few weeks and external hard drives will be available for games. #41

That's still not playing them on the Xbox One though. By that logic, my TV currently plays PS3 and Wii U games because I have them connected to it's HDMI ports.

As others said, there may be an issue with input lag being added. It'd be playable, but not ideal. Much better to just keep your 360 and plug it straight into the TV. #3.3

Kneejerk fanboy reaction? Really? They're not comparing the two, or saying one is better than the other, so why the need to immediately say this? Reveals a lot about how defensive you are, just be happy about the console you've chosen.

Besides....if the PS3 can emulate PS1 and PS2, then the PS4 will be able to as's just a matter of them working on that after the launch is over with. The only issue is PS3 games, and Gaikai streaming may (stress, may) b... #2.2

You'd be suprised...people have been complaining about the PS4 "taking so long" to boot, and it did it in 30 seconds. It seems people nowadays are constantly in a rush. It wouldn't bother me, but there are people who will look at this info and sigh. #2.3

Of course you can, you can have any outlandish configuration you want so long as you pay for it all. But you cannot match PS4 performance at it's $399 price point, you simply cannot do it, it's impossible.
The base hardware was mid-range PC parts, but it's heavily customised and has features that aren't available to PC users yet (soon, but not quite yet).
A single Titan costs more than the PS4 - significantly more - but you can't play a damn thing on just... #11.1.2

Hey man....that fish AI alone makes the next gen upgrade worth it.
Seriously though, if you really want a slightly better version of the same game you already have, then by all means pay the £10 and upgrade and get some use out of your new console. Just don't expect a huge revolution until the series actually makes the full transition to the next gen and, perhaps, receives an overhaul. #5

There's no big conspiracy behind faulty consoles....they're just an inevitability when electronics are mass produced. Sucks to wait for so long and get a faulty unit, and I'm sure you get angry and want to blame somebody, but it's just that s**t happens.
No sabotage, no conspiracy, no pervasive threat to every console out's just faulty units that will be replaced with as little fuss as possible. I would say let's not blow things out of proportion... #5

Steam machines are just PC' they have access to, literally, the largest line up of exclusives on ANY other platform. Why would Valve ever make a game exclusive to their OS? That cuts off a lot of potential buyers for no real reason. The OS doesn't actually make them any's going to be completely free, so what's the point of making a game exclusively for it? All you do is piss people off. Even if you say it's to sell the Steam Box...even then it reall... #7

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
