The problems I have with the Xbox One are shared with the PS4 and I would possibly regret owning the Sony console more. I will be giving my reasons for not liking both consoles in the course of this writing, and explaining why in my situation I am filled with Xbox One regrets.

I have NO regret in buying my PS4. The Xbox one I also do NOT regret because its amazing to use with my cable box plugged in.

I regret buying the ps4 at least at this moment I do... I wish I would have waited and just use that money to upgrade my gaming PC or could have did anything else with that money .... but oh well...

I don't regret my PS4 purchase at all. I played a ton of games on it and now I'm playing one of the best games ever made, TLOU Remastered.

My only gripe with the PS4 is not being backward compatible with peripherals like Mad Catz fight sticks and Logitech and Fanatec FFB products. I am big into racing and fighting games and having to purchase all new all over again is very pricey.

With the XBOX ONE I am kicking myself for breaking down and getting one. I mainly did so because in my house we have 3 male gamers. We all favored MS hardware the past 2 generations but we knew going in we were less than thrilled with MS's game plan and them having lesser hardware.

I talked my boys out of wanting one out of the gate and told them I wasn't going to get one either. But at the last minute they felt we should get at least one just incase the reports were wrong and they didn't want to miss out if they were hard to get for the first few months.

So we ended up getting one and all of us are of the same opinion. Disappointed. My favorite game on MS is Forza 5. It runs like @zz on the TX 458 wheel. It's nothing like Forza 4 on the CSR Elite, nothing like it. It feels so damn sloppy. Turn 10 said they were going to address this with a patch but never did.

My kids have played several multiplat titles on both consoles and prefer how they look and perform on the PS4 vs X1.

So I picked up 1 PS4 and 1 XBOX ONE out of the gate. Now we have 3 PS4s and 1 XBOX ONE that I am honestly thinking about selling. I'm holding out hope Horizon 2 will run better on my wheel than F5 does. If not I'm dumping the X1 and will end up gaming primarily on my PS4 and my PC Rig.

Same here gape, I fully regret buying the PS4 when I did and also getting ps plus. It has been three months now and other than playing watch dogs( which was also a disappointment) has been collecting dust. It is not a bad system, it just doesnt have the great games for me to play yet. I wished I would have waited. And now hearing about possible price drops for the ps4 just made me regret buying it even more. Its not a bad system, I just wished I would have waited.

That was an awefully written article. He tries to make stabs at both consoles and then compares to the previous generation how it was so much better because they had more first party titles at launch. Both consoles were slim pickings at first if I remember right. He bashes the interface of both consoles as well. I could not disagree with him more.

pop-voxuli1537d ago

No you don't. In fact anyone who REALLY had one would never say that. Points for trying I guess.

MasterCornholio1537d ago

Is that sarcasm or are you being serious?

I can't tell with you but the previous comment is sarcastic.

CPTN MITCHELL1537d ago (Edited 1537d ago )

The dude is a cry baby....i play my ps4 everyday and I don't have anything to complain about

liquidhalos1537d ago

I had to stop reading half way through. The article is literally full of pathetic baby reasons for not liking anything. There should be a minimum legal age to write stuff on the Internet, that way we wouldn't get vomit like this on our screens

Neixus1537d ago

Sadly, there are alot of stupid adults aswell

extermin8or1537d ago

No minimum level of intelligence, not age.

ShowGun9011537d ago

sigh, this article is pathetic.

he says the xb1 has no games, forgetting to mention their biggest hype-train, titanfall.

he says the ps4 has no new features, forgetting about facebook, live from playstation streaming, sharefactory (free video editing program, woot woot!) and all those goodies.

please sell your xbone and quit our community forever!

(or at least never write again!)

jmac531537d ago

It sounds like the author needs to quit gaming since there is literally nothing that excites him about this current generation. I am super excited for the potential, having just played TLOU Remastered for the first time.

SaveFerris1537d ago

So the author packs a sad because the 'exclusive' games are just timed exclusives? Does he not know that this is standard operating procedure for Microsoft?

ExposingLames1537d ago

exactly lmao. ALL that money and they won't make a new IP. they will make HALO 5,435, but DON'T as them to make a new IP, just throw their money at multiplats or try to take other console's exclusives lmao. and that is why i never got on the XBOX train. I wanted to this gen....until they announced their console and their choices/vision for it. I'm good thanks. I'll stick to Last of us.

dansdooz1537d ago

did i miss something, when did they announce dead rising 3 was a timed exclusive?

MonstaTruk1537d ago

I'm not sure when they announced it,'s coming to PC, presumably.

Mega241537d ago (Edited 1537d ago )

Its already on PC, preodering it I mean, its scheduled for September.

Neixus1537d ago (Edited 1537d ago )

Dead rising 3 runs at 30fps -locked- on PC. There's like no reason to even release it at that point.

30fps is fine for console, because of controller latency. But on pc, mouse/keyboard are so responsive that 30fps is really bad.
