I don't know if I believe him. I'm sticking to the Xbox there no way in hell

Rikuson11888d ago

It's a preference/opinion there's nothing to believe lol
Your basically saying "I don't believe your opinion"
And when you say that it basically sound like you don't believe he's even used both controller (which he has, he was a freaking video to prove his OPINION) come on dude.

theBAWSE1888d ago

Sony have eradicated every plus some say that the 360 had over ps3 for the new gen

controllers - have heard nothing but positive improvements over the ds3

ease of development - not only is the ps4 more powerful it's easy to program for

online- Sony done well this gen to really close the gap especially with ps+ but now with ps4 and all the new additions such as X chat plus a headset in every box there is nothing not one advantage the xbone has going into the new generation that I can see IMO...

nukeitall1888d ago


basically the PS4 has turned into a supercharged Xbox 360.

There is very little in the PS4 that screams next generation console. It follows the exact same model it did previously with every generation except for the Wii, it is just the same thing with more processing power i.e. more pixels on screen.

LordDhampire1888d ago


So what is the xbone? Just a charged 360, since its not really super and it hasn't changed anything from last gen, while sony is improving playstation network adding cross game chat and such offering free game a complete turn around from the launch of the ps3 with its garbage online service, the ps4 took all the negatives of the ps3 controllers and improved upon them like xbox to 360 controller, now the 360 is going dualshock 1 to ds2.

Playstation is offering a actual good camera, not quite on par with kinect but much better than the previous gen and plenty good enough for motion games

So before you try to trash talk the ps4 maybe you should look at the xbone first and realize how much it hasn't changed....still behind paywall for third party features(netflix etc) still forcing kinect and kinect games down our throats, still making us buy first party accesorys such as charge and play packs which will probably not hold a charge in 2 years time

Overall....I want kinect...said no one ever

Cryptcuzz1888d ago


If the PS4 is just a supercharged x360, the the Xbox One is just a super x360. Its not even the champion edition or turbo edition ;)

Don't make comments like that. It really shows your insecurity with very little insight as to why you would feel that way and not with the other.

Think about it, what does the Xbox One do more than the PS4 other than being more expensive? The PS4 is already known to be faster and more powerful, easier to program and develop for, adds more functionality to its controller with the touchpad, smaller in size with no power brick. All at $100 cheaper.

With that logic, what does that make the Xbox One if you think the PS4 is just a supercharged x360?

Kryptix1888d ago

Nukeitall's logic:

If the PS4 is a supercharged Xbox 360, then the Xbox One which holds weaker specs must be the latest model of Alienware PCs!

...What an idiot. They really need to issue IQ tests when you sign up for an account. Too much broken logic with these fanboys.

theBAWSE1888d ago (Edited 1888d ago )


and the xbone does what exactly?

it's definitely not supercharged

controllers still require batteries

it's weaker than the ps4

its now adopting OLD ps3 technology in blu-ray

everything is behind a paywall

it's more expensive for inferior technology

and please don't say TV.. you still need a cable box

plus all the reversals we have seen from Microsoft.. xbone so far has been a calamity the 'fawlty towers' of gaming

slampunk1888d ago


I couldn't agree more, but the online infrastructure is where MS have Sony beat by a landslide.

FamilyGuy1888d ago

I've heard tons of positive comments and reviews about the DS4, whether it be PS3 gamers or those that preferred the 360. I can't wait to try it out myself an see what all the fuss is about.

This guy actually says that it felt so good that he wasn't bothered by the sticks being symmetrical, even though he's been a 360 focused gamer for over 6 years. I really wonder what it is they did to make it so comfortable when something like that should actually take some getting use to based on habit alone. Sony must have reeeeeeally put work in on having everything placed perfectly.

Hellsvacancy1888d ago

@nukeitall AA batteries do not supercharge anything, that's oldskool right there

pyramidshead1888d ago

@at everyone above.

I think what nukeitall is trying to say is that the PS4 will be the most popular console plus be way easier to develop for than its competitors, which is what the 360 was this gen amirite?

Hardly negative things to be honest, on top of superior specs together with a more dev friendly architecture with unified mem.(more pixels per screen, like he said, especially hitting reses like 1080p), cheaper price for said superior components inside the box with no bolt on flawed motion control peripheral that so far has little to no support(with vague hope that developers will shoe horn stuff into games later on in the gen).

I'd mention HDMI-in but it seems the least talked about feature of the X1.

RexFury1888d ago

Yeah. I got hands-on with both controllers at Eurogamer. I personally really liked the Xbox One controller and I didn't like the DS4. It all comes down to opinion. As for using the dpad, I only ever use that for minor things like changing characters on GTA V, I have never used it as a primary function that the person is in this video with Killer Instinct....well I would use an arcade stick anyway, but you know what I mean.

It is all about playing with what feels comfortable in your hand.

FamilyGuy1888d ago (Edited 1888d ago )

Whoa Nuke, it's "the same thing"???

Did you not notice the touch pad on the controller?
You had to see its Light Bar
Maybe heard about the speaker?
There's a Share button on there too
What's "the same" about:
Live Streaming your game play
Being able to remote play every title
Video chatting as you play any game
Playing a game while it's still downloading
Jumping into a game invite in under ten seconds?
Having BRAND NEW GAMES for free on PS+ Resogun/driveclub and a bunch of indies will be free at the games launch, no waiting a year for them to pop up.
Game streaming, how is game streaming "the same"?

What do you gain by downplaying all the brand new features/abilities associated with the PS4? If it was "the same" why are there so many pre-orders? I mean, it's the same right, so shouldn't it sell at the same pace as PS3s currently sell?

You're acting like all they did was slap more power in a PS3, call it a PS4 and that was it. Not all innovations come in the form of gimmicks *cough* tv tv tv *cough* it reads your heartbeat!*cough*. Those AA batteries packed in the box with the X1 sure look "the same" though, they couldn't even give out rechargeable AA batteries.

Eh, enjoy what you like, the games AND new system features sell me on the PS4. I was sold back in February and have only become more interested since.

Gekko361888d ago

@All Hmm there seem to be some serious Praystation bais on here.

After reading some of these comments I've noticed that no one has mentioned the lack of change that Sony have done to their online infrastructure.

Yes I know about Gaikai Streaming (Note Streaming only) and I know about social media (Mega slow on the uptake there since the technology has been around for years. However where MS have excelled is in their bolstering on their online environment. Yes there is a paywall, but I personally don't care.

So...It's sort of a Monster VS A Wet Fart!

Sony have way too much catching up to do.

When it comes to Sony Vs MS regarding software and online infrastructure... Sony will always be stuffed

redwin1888d ago

"Absolutely decision making " is what he said about the D pad, because he likes using the D pad. In the video he used the Xbox D pad. He chose to NEVER use the D pad in the video for the PS... Mmmmmm. I'll have them both this Xmas, I'll then give a nu-bias opinion. Btw, when it comes to car games, I rather use the D pad than the analog, just because I've been playing for a while.

HiddenMission1887d ago


Not sure if you are serious or trolling with your comment.

1. Did the 360 allow for remote play with any device...answer no.
2. Did the 360 have a touchpad...answer no.
3. Did the 360 allow for 15 mins of live streaming/video sharing...answer no.
4. Was the 360's OS fully integrated into all of your portable devices...answer no.
5. Did the 360 to allow you to watch your friend play a match real time and then jump right on in...answer no.
6. Did the 360 have a sleep mode where you can turn it on and start right back up from where you left off without having to re-enter a game...answer no.

These are just a few of the many and I do mean many features that the PS4 has that neither current gen consoles yeah I'll say again I'm not sure if you were serious or just trolling.

Aceman181887d ago


I'd like to thank you for making me a little more dumber. I swear the more I read comments on this site that are hella stupid like ours the more I lose brain cells trying to comprehend the idiotic statements people like you make smdh.

FamilyGuy1887d ago

There's also that virtual pass the pad feature where you can let you friends take over for you in a game.

Gekko36 claims (ermm, makes a huge idiotic assumption based on thin air) there to be "no change" in improving the online infrastructure yet WE ALL watched Yosh click on a game invite and was in the game playing in around 7-10 seconds. That is a huge change. Party chat is also a change, as well as video chat as you play, streaming so your friends can watch you play and having 2000 limit friends list. The X1 is capped at 1000, already proving the PS4 to be better in that regard.
The claim that X1 will somehow be better, more socially connected, solid, fast or whatever is just dumb. There is no way to compare those things until the consoles are out. Even the "300,000 dedicated servers" claim can't be proven as used for every game or proven to make chatting or gaming with your friends better until after the systems launch. Right now it's just a bunch of words. We'll see how they truly compare AFTER the systems launch.

GribbleGrunger1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

I always find it odd when people say they're not bothered about the thumbsticks being symetrical. I'm not bothered about my thumbs being symetrical either. It 'sort of' just works ...

Have you tried both controllers? If you haven't then all you can go by is people's opinions, its up to you to actually believe someone as the same applies to reviews up to the viewer to agree or disagree, except you need to hold them before you judge them.

leogets1888d ago

played with Xbox new controller and doesn't feel any better. still the same and still awkward analogue sticks.. even the pressure sensitive triggers on bf4 didn't notice ne thing..

strickers1888d ago

DS4 is much better than 360 pad but I haven't tried XB1.

showtimefolks1888d ago

I grew up with dual shock and I stick with it

But nothing wrong if you like Xbox one controller

LordDhampire1888d ago

Im not as picky as most when it comes to controller layouts, and I down really care about d-pads but my only real complaint with ds3 was sticks being to loose, and with 360 is no rechargable batteries...which is still rediculous

Bathyj1888d ago

I grew up on Game&Watch, but now I like dual shock.

Animal Mutha 761888d ago

I've used both at EGX. DS4 is a massive improvement and I'd have no issue with it If I owned a PS4. You don't notice what controller you are using when playing driveclub - I didn't. Forgot I was on a PS4 game :).
The XB1 controller is for me excellent. I loved the 360 unit and this controller has incremental improvements to an already good design.

Not a reason to choose one console over another so I do wonder why so much debate.

Sony's is probably most improved but that's because it had a long way to come from. Xbox's will still be the choice of the shooter/tourny pc crowd in my opinion because its just bloody good. The rumble triggers are also a unique addition and really do make controlling your braking in Forza a tricky experience.

Fairchild Channel F1888d ago


Ah LCD Game&Watch......good times...

Think I still have a Advance D&D LCD game somewhere.

It doesn't look very good for Microsoft in relation to next gen consoles. Sony has been kicking them in the ba**s since the consoles were announced (Sony has better hardware, more 1st party studios, better payed online service and cheaper hardware). If Microsoft doesn't get their act together, they are going to loose big time. The few changes they made with the X1 weren't nearly enough. They need ...

- A Kinectless X1 that's cheaper then the PS4.
- Improve XBLA Gold to compete with PS+. Paying to ONLY play multiplayer is not going to cut it any more. They should offer games like Sony.
- More exclusives (real exclusives that stay exclusives). They need more BIG exclusives that sell consoles. Only Halo, Gears, Forza and timed exclusive for COD is not going to cut it.

redwin1888d ago

Really? I think MS is just where it wants to be. I think they want to be known for the most exclusive and high end console than the popular one. They make money by install base, they, Sony and MS, gotta make so much $ per console they sell and Xbox has consistently make more. I believe that in about 5 years there will be a Xbox One.5 that won't have a cd drive and kinect will be integrated in the console. Like that they'll save the money from the blue ray and packaging . The developers will love MS because of it. But, let's be honest, if another company was to buy the Xbox brand and keep the same business model, people wouldn't hate it as much. It's the fact that it's MS that people don't like the Xbox. It's the topical anti establishment mentality.

gamer20131887d ago

It doesn't matter what MS does people like you will always hate and troll. So why don't you leave these forums alone and go do something productive with you're life.

GmIsOnPt3601888d ago

when he refers to the xbox one controller as xbone i think we know where loyalties rest before we press play on said video

ShinMaster1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )


You mean you DON'T WANT to believe him.
It seems like you came here looking to justify your decision.

I don't see a good reason why we shouldn't believe him. He made valid points. Whether you agree or deny them, that's a different issue. He really did prefer the Xbox prior to the PS4 and even praised the XB1's announcement.

JuniorCE1887d ago

Good luck... Dont forget to buy the charger and batteries ;-)

I think the most exciting thing about the DS 4 is the touch pad. Now navigating maps and menus won't feel be such a pain in the ass.

Dante811888d ago

I also like the PC support out of the box.

GmIsOnPt3601888d ago

"basic functionality" whatever that means

dethpuck1888d ago

That is my logic as well. All my frienfs are on live and have xbone preordered. Getting a pd4 doesn't make sense for me at launch. I will get pd4 after Christmas. G otta have titanfall on day one as well

nukeitall1888d ago

I'm getting Xbox One as well for Titanfall, Quantum Break, Ryse and Killer Instinct. I also love the idea of instantly switch between Skype, TV and games.

Heck, I'm going all digital this next generation.

Got a PS4 pre-ordered from the day it was available on amazon in the US, but debating if I should sell it for a profit. I don't have time for two consoles, heck I don't even have time for my Xbox 360, let alone the PS3 or my PC.

Still got to finish ME3, Tomb Raider, Bioshock infinite, splinter cell blacklist, starcraft 2 and so on.
