you gto to be a stupid gamer to cancel your preorder cause the launch games are rushed and don't meet the 1080p. Seriously what have gamers become. What happened to simply enjoy a game regardless on how it looks.?


I have a 55" 1080p tv. If the Xbox one exclusives are not enough to hold me over, the resolution amongst multiplatform titles can be a legit issue. And yes, gameplay is king.  But resolution is icing on the cake. Especially when you pay less for more icing. Now, you have more money to play more games. Works out pretty well, doesn't it? 


I have the same size tv for games .Some of the best games out there have terrible graphics but their gameplay is sublime. One to note is FFVII And chrono trigger. DO they have good graphics  especially on a 55 inch tv ? lol. Look at bf4 , you can't tell difference. When in motion and with everythign happenign very quickly , the difference itself is small and barely noticeable. Look at ps3 at launch. The price difference ws huge and sufferd from poor multiplatform graphics. Did people complain as much or di dsay sony isstill king ,, just you wait,, they will reign king. Just because its MS ,, XO is gettign all this unecessary hate when its a good console.  I am confident you won't see any difference with COD as it looks Current Gen with Fish Ai lol.  Well that would work if you are on  a tight budget  but what you get for 100 bucks more is not that bad and yes i am referring to kinect and their online service with their dedicated servers. I had bad experiences with psn online with it crashing ,logging me out and slowdown ,, therefore i am doubful about it on the ps4.

Obviously, you're mad. And for the record, I've been playing the original Alice which came out over 10 years ago, and I need to get back on my DSiXL to finish Professor Layton and jump on some Etrian Odyssey. So these are some of the best more recent games that don't have the best graphics. Please don't get so offended just because a valid view point doesn't favor the Xbox one, but could favor gamers in general.

They are no longer gamers, they have morphed into..... FANBOYS (dun dun dun). 

Symptom are :

Pixel Counting ("Like OMG!!! the grass is so much sharper on my console")

Superiority Complex ("Like OMG my console is 2,000,000 times stronger than yours")

Uncontrollable fantasies ("My console is on track to sell 500 times more than yours. Why would I need stats to back this up? Isn't it obvious?"

Be warned they're not any known cures for fanyboyism.  Perhaps one they can open there minds, and realise this stuff is overblown/fake or flatout doesn't matter



To me all this will mean is
Ps4 will win this gen. Duh
Multi plat will look and sell better so reversed this gen
Ms will probably be the first of two to move on to next next gen and the roles will then be switched again



Makes no difference to me as my pc is more powerful then both consoles.
That said however I was thinking of cancelling my order and just stick with the ps4. But seeing as Titanfall is 100% not coming to PS4 I decided to keep it. I will just buy my multi-plats on PS4 like I bought them on 360 this gen.

Why Sonyfanboys have to constantly make shittstorms and crap threads about competitors every day? They really take my whole enjoyment for this next console generation.

Why they can't just be happy about the games they get and be happy for the other gamers on other consoles and for their games they get?

PS4 fanboys should make insted of all the crap blogs blogs about games like Ryse where they appreciate that it is a really nice looking interesting game and whis xbox fans a good time with the game and they should make bolgs about wiiu's Super Mario 3D World where they wish WiiU guys a awesome time with the game.

This would be a nice community where I really would love to be part of, enjoying the own games like Infamous second son it looks amazing and be happy for the others too for their awesome games.

 

Nah, but seriously. Grow up

I was in GAME earlier, biggest gaming retailer in UK. Was a bunch of people in there in a line made especially for pre-order cancellations, I overheard them chatting and all were there because of CoD on Xbone.

For the longest time the PS3 had inferior ports. It did not stop it from being a good system.

Which is irrelevant when nobody is arguing if the X1 is a "good system" or not. Still, in the beginning, people did  cancel their PS3 pre-orders, but it, like now, wasn't a big enough amount to matter.

People preordered a console to play CoD, or just disappointed in hardware capabilities? :O I wonder... this is getting interesting...



What store was that Kylie as if they have loads of cancels maybe I can take one of the peoples spots? Rather get it from Game as get the reward points where as at shopto where my order is I get nowt.
