Microsoft went full retard on themselves.

I watch the Sony E3 Conference. Everyone cheered for sony when they said you don't need to be online to play on games and you can lend,sell, or keep games. Also 80£ cheaper then xbox 1 aswell

Im getting a PS4 as ive always been on playstation side. + its better for me then XBOX one

i think microsoft have gone insane, i know a few people who were buzzin about the new xbox but everyone has turned to ps4, and after reading some youtube comments it looks like 99% of people are thinking the same.

Did anyone see the price reveal video from both companys?

Sony got cheers after announcing it would cost $399 i think it was, and in the xbox reveal there was boo's, silence and some guy going "XBOX SUCKS" :lol:

his face said it all, that was the moment he and the rest of the company knew they were shafted

im hoping everyone just sticks to 360, cant really see any need for a new console especially this new spybox lol.

the newest 360 released last week is apparently for the gamers who have no internet connection, so are they guna cut the internet connection to the original 360 i wonder :nono:

there's no way they'll do that, they're just trying to say there's no online check ins required every 24hour.. what they mean by "stick to xbox360 if you have no internet connection" is.. go buy a ****ing PS4 that does everything our console does, which is exactly what im gonna do..

A lot of polls etc suggest PS4 70% Xbox One 30% on average from what I'VE seen..

and I have to disagree with this.. more I play on my PC, more I cant play my PS3 and Xbox360, the graphics seem SOOO pooor.. I think it's time for a new console, but not what Xbox one is offering..

I had been contemplating which console to go for next and for me, after doing some in-depth research, its the PS4 hands down.

Xbox One:
- You HAVE to have the camera plugged in at all times.
PS4:
- You dont need the camera and its current RRP is only $59 if you do.

Xbox One:
- You cannot trade, sell, lend out games
PS4:
- Unlimited trades, sells etc

Xbox One:
- You have to have the console constantly online for daily verification and security checks
PS4:
- You can play online or offline (and of course, its FREE!)

Xbox One:
- Much more focused on being a multimedia centre
PS4:
- Developers are focused solely on the games with gamers in mind.

The selling point for me was what i read in the terms and conditions...

The new Kinect 2.0's microphone and camera is always on, watching, listening. If you decide to rent or buy a film, you will need to buy a license for each individual watching - if someone else decides to come and join in, the kinect can stop what you are watching and have the potential to charge you more for that extra person... scary stuff... it also has the potential to measure your heart beat!

its PS4 hands down for me now after watching the PS4's camera demo and how good it actually looks.

MS has not fallen behind only because of the game lending and selling policy, but from their hardware as well. The processor and graphics card are inferior to those of the PS4. I admit PS3 was a failure (taking in mind the long wait after PS2 launched) and never regret not getting one. What annoys me though is, despite the fact all this great technology available to them, both companies decide to give preety standard equipment. For instance no Ultra HD. And what's up with all these new games coming out before the new consoles are released? GT5 should be on PS4 FFS!!

What the hell, does that mean I can't watch films on the xbox without buying some license ?

I agree completely - I was under the impression that both consoles were NOT back compatible... i just found out that its just the Xbox that isnt... the PS4 will be back compatible with PS3 games - all this information added together, i think the PS4 will see a much greater profit and this could be the end of the Xbox!

Actually, We now have to pay to play ONLINE, but its PS+ so you get **** loads of games for free, and your PS+ subscription is activated across all platforms(PS3, PS4 and VITA) and I honestly don't mind a yearly fee for multiplayer as PS4 doesn't have all the drawbacks.. PLUS its cheaper!

HOWEVER, same games do not require PS+ to play online, and these are the free to play games like Planetside 2 and the others announced..

A cool announcement however, ALL PS+ buyers will get DriveClub for free (PSN edition with slightly less cars) but you can still use it online and race against anybody who was the other cars etc..

Right, now reply to what I just read about the kinect and licenses:

Holy ****ing ****.. I've been keeping up to date with everything and I didn't even read the terms and conditions about EXTRA license's for other watchers, **** me that's a huge factor too!

EDIT: I've just read online that this is just a PATENT Microsoft has and it's not necessarily being used atm. A lot of companies have dodgy and weird patents, in fact Sony had all the DRM restrictions Microsoft has atm Patented years and years ago, but they just having used it.

I was under the impression that both consoles were NOT back compatible... i just found out that its just the Xbox that isnt... the PS4 will be back compatible with PS3 games
Just to clarify, PS4 backward compatibility is not available straight away and will only be available once the GaiKai CLOUD technology is launched in 2014, so you can't stick your GT5/Uncharted in there and play it on your PS4.. From what i've read and seen anyway.
