Also saying x1 has better games is just your opinion not a fact. And NO they DO NOT have the same specs.


No its not. Xbox One has more exclusives and total sales have been higher.  We dont have numbers on Killer Instinct and Resogun, but KI is a game fans had been begging Microsoft for now for years and should no doubt have a bigger impact then Resogun.  All the 3rd party games have done much better on PS4.

PS4(1.75 million)

Killzone - 1.25 m.

Knack - .5 m.

 

Xbox One (2.2 million)

Forza 5 - .92 million

Dead Rising 3 - .64 million

Ryse - .64 million


Sales=Quality GOTCHA! Therefore today, January 19 2014, I proclaim Call of Duty as the best game ever.

Also might aswell add fighter within and zoo tycon while you are at it. 


It's not purely just the sales its just the reality.  I don't own either consoles but the combination of Killzone and Knack is no doubt worse then the combination of Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, and Ryse.    Either way for both consoles what it means if that no one really cares about their exclusives (for now), because Call of Duty,FIFA, and Battlefield have outsold everything by far.  Assassin's Creed IV on PS4 has the exact same sales as Killzone as well.

LOL way to derail this conversation. You said x1 has better games than ps4(which is YOUR opinion), you did not mention sales at all. But since you want to talk sales, you are comparing 3 games(2 old IPs with established fanbases, especially forza, and one new ip made by crytek) to TWO games(1 with an established fanbase and the other one a dying genre especially on sony and MS systems). Point is comparing sales is not only unfair but ridiculous. And obciously COD, AC4, AND B4 will sell better, because of established fanbases  and popularity.

Ms pushed me away with their lack of exclusives(halo,gears and fable) can't cut it anymore



Is it an either or? I think both happened actually.

No doubt based on what exactly? Quality is subjective. The Last of Us got most of the game of the year awards last year and many people who played it said they didn't enjoy it. So, was it good or bad? Neither. It's debatable, because it's subjective. Hence random15 rightly pointing out that it's "not a fact".

I dont see it.  The general consensus about Knack was that it sucked, and Killzone is that its a decent game with great graphics.. Pretty much everything I have seen said Forza was solid, Dead Rising 3 was very good, and Ryse was a mediocre game with great visuals.   Not to mention that Killer Instinct has been begged for by its fans for years on end, and they released that at launch too.  You can have a different opinion, but that is why I feel like Xbox Ones exclusive lineup was much better, and it made no difference because last generation Call of Duty and FIFA moved all the consoles.  Alot has been made of Nintendos 3rd party problems, but as of right now Sony and Microsoft are having the same 1st party problems.

Its both the price and the horrible reveal. More so the horrible reveal with all the bad info we were getting about no used games, always online etc.

There should be a 3rd option in the poll.

A combination of both.

Sony are trusted and MS demonstrated why they're not trusted. I still don't think there would have been that much of a difference: Cheaper, more powerful, slicker with a feature packed new controller and a focus on games.

What the hell does that have to do with anything? You keep saying it over and over, but it literally says nothing. Not to mention, as good as the gameplay is, the game came out with 6 characters and 2 will be added over an unknown (to me) period of time. A whooping 8 characters for the first season! Not to mention the price model they are using and all the features that the game is currently missing makes it feel fairly incomplete. Also, releasing at launch is not an accomplishment if the game feels rushed, incomplete or is bugged.

gamers are more informed then ever, they know ps4 is a good deal more more powerful and 100$ cheaper, it's really an easy choice for any well informed gamer that's not in love with halo/gears of war.
