    PC... man, all of the cool kids do their gaming on the PC!!! icon_wink.gificon_biggrin.gif

    I would wait a few months until the initial bugs are worked out. The downside of being one of the first adopters of a new console is that you become the test audience. In the end though, it's largely going to come down to the games you like - go with the console that has the most titles you wish to play. The specs are not that different between the two.

    For a better answer, you might want to list out the game franchises or console features that are most important to you.

    Why PS3? I'd get a PS4. And fuck Xbox. Xbox is too restrictive and invasive.

    That's going to be my strategy. And wait until both systems have had a few updates.

    Neither at this point. I want a PS4, but not until 'Infamous; Second Son' gets released in March '14. None of the launch games in either console are worth the console purchase at this point.

    It's totally up to you. It basically comes down to the games you want to play. For me I only play online shooters are my entire crew is strictly Xbox so I'm sticking to my X1. Battlefield 4, the only game that needs to be played on any system, console or PC. Screw all that garbage RPG shite.

    I'm going to wait also. I used to be an early adopter for game consoles. I've learned that the second revision units are usually better. Less bugs and more features and lower price.

    Summary: Buy either one. Or not.

    Lol. Yep, that was exactly my reaction.

    They didn't say anything about how you can replace the hard drive on the PS4, or how some online stuff is free with the PS4 (something I read somewhere) while you have to have the Xbox Live Gold for the Xbox One for any online stuff.

    Well it was at least nice to learn that the Xbox One controller is decent; it doesn't look comfortable to me. And it was nice to learn that the Xbox One has lower power consumption.

    Again, wait and see.

    iFixit already did a tear-down for both. Seems the hard drive is relatively easy to replace on both units.

    Not for the Xbox One, from what I read, "The Xbox One requires a considerable amount of disassembly to pull out and replace the hard disk drive, and iFixit calls it a warranty-voiding procedure."

    While for the PS4 they say, "However, aside from the user-replaceable HDD, getting into the system's guts is a little harder than with the Xbox One" meaning that the HDD is meant to be user replaceable while it's clearly not on the Xbox One (the "little harder" stuff about Torx screws is if you go beyond replacing the HDD). That's also how replacing the hard drive was with the PS3; well documented by Sony and straightforward. With the Xbox 360 replacing the hard drive voided your warranty.

    You look good in a ski mask, although I didn't realize that your legs were that hairy.

    So you couldn't wait and got one of each? Did you get the dildos at Frys as well? What aisle are they on?

    Unless you're really guetto and you're trying to save $100, theres no reason to get a PS4 over the XBOX One. The XBoxe has way too much shit the PS4 doesnt.

    Dude, Xbox is stupid. You can't share games with your friends. Hell, you can't even play your old 360 games on it. So all those games you bought? In the fucking trash. It's fucking massive and the same ole massive, clunky controller as well. And I don't think I should be forced to have internet to play a fucking game. Oh, and you have to buy this Kinect bullshit because it won't work without it plugged in. Not to mention, people are reporting this thing eats discs. You can have that piece of shit. I'll stick with PlayStation.

    lol I really cant tell if youre being serious or not but just in case...lol

    1. Yes you can share games with anyone just like on the PS4
    2. PS4 does not let you play PS3 games either.
    3. The Xbox does not require internet connection or anything of the sort. Microsoft changed that so long ago.
    4. Kinect comes included with the XBOX and its the best part of it.
    5. Game Consoles do not "eat" discs.

    Anyways im sure you werent serious

    As I mentioned before, I'am getting the PlayStation 4 for a number of reasons. One of them is quality and after sales piece of mind a company like Sony can deliver.

    Think about this, why would I want some inferior piece of equipment with out-the-box-mechanical defects? sure the first badge of PS4 might have software issues but that can be fix with just an upgrade. A problem that will not be present in future allocations.

    In the other hand...That ShitBox One disc grinding noise sounds serious and noting the failures of the previous console and the response from Microsoft when it came to dealing with issues like that... Think about it? Why would any intelligent person would want to invest $500 in a headache?

    The build quality of the PS4 is pretty bad compared to the XBOX One. The design is nicer and more compact but definitely not better built. The headphones and cables that come in the box are also really really bad and every review has covered this problem already. The PS4 unit wabbles on any flat surface and over 40 thousand PS4 have been reported bricked and unfixable through software. Many users have even damaged the HDMI out port which according to Kotaku seems to be very sensitive so I really dont know where you are getting your facts from

    Reality:

    The XBOX and the PS4 are beat identical gaming systems with near identical specs and performance not by what a paper tells you but from straight up side to side comparisons. Most popular games are available on bith systems as well so from a purely gaming perspective they are both just as good in which case i would buy PS4 simply because its cheaper. However, the XBox comes with Kinect out of the box paired with an extrmely powerful gesture control system, voice controls and face detection. It also provides an HDMI In interface making the XBOX the center of the living room experience, switching from TV to gaming by simply saying "XBOX go to TV". XBOX live also has quite a full catalogue of apps that ps4 does not and Microsoft is working continuously to expand their content availability by signing deals with major content peoviders like HBO. The interface and software in the XBOX is also superior, Microsoft is a software company and they have the experience to pull it off. Security is also much better on Live and Could services are also much better than what PS4 can currently offer. The fact that Kinect came bundled with the XBOX means that games developers can count with that interface being available and make better use of the technology in future games. Sony is giving u a PS4 which is literally a PS3 with better graphics and is charging u $400 for it. Micrsoft is giving you also a system with better graphics plus a full on integration system with tons of available services and content. Its a no brainer for most people. The PS4 does not feel like a next gen console.

    Previous Experience with products from both companies. American companies are no interested in designing/manufacturing durability or are even as dedicated to assist their consumers with any issues that might arise at the same speed or level of satisfaction like a Japanese company would.

    Microsoft doesn't care if those Xbox One units are having disc driver issues, which is a mechanical issue that won't be able to be fixed with software upgrades. Something went wrong there and knowing Microsoft, I'm sure something else will go wrong in the long run leaving thousands of owners dissatisfied once again. And what would be Microsoft response? "We don't know what it could be".

    They are almost identical in physical specs/features as you mentioned but they're never gonna be the same. For once, Sony never had any plans to invade the privacy of it's users with some sort of big brother scheme. The original draconian idea of Microsoft by creating a device that will spy and be intrusive by forcing online connection with daily authentication and not allowing games to be shared is beyond comprehension and cemented in me. They backed out of it when they encountered public outcry.

    Until I have the opportunity to view and try one in person, I'm not gonna change my mind about it.

    As for the HDMI or A/V input for that matter, it will break if is aggressively handled, breaking pins is the least of their problems., They have done some serious damage inside their units that will need field repair. That's not a quality problem. That's an individual lack of self-control when dealing with their own equipment. Those things are fragile anywhere and knowing how people **think** toggling it will fix the issue I'm sure more will be broken.

    I know you're a hardcore Xbox believer but everyone has their choice and it must be respected as such. And my choice, like many others here is for the PlayStation 4 because we believe is a superior system. Just like you think the Xbox is one.
