My little nephew got both for Christmas and when I asked him which one I should get, he said Xbox was the best. He's just 13 (14 in April) and not a fanboy or anything. Probably couldn't care less about resolution and such, either....and I don't know why but I want One, too!


As I've said before, Microsoft knows how to catch your attention at launch better than Sony. Sony will catch up and more than likely outpace them in internal development, but MS always wants to be the life of the party and they succeed at it in spades. They seem to be big believers in first impressions and they've done a great job of having a great first impression. If it gets better than this then the Xbox One will be the party console this gen for sure.

my nephew got a PS4 and I got the Xbox One over Christmas and while out today he mentioned that he felt the X1 has better games. He's not into FPS... didn't like Knack so that didn't leave much else at the moment for him to play. Eventually the PS4 will have more variety of AAA games but as of right now X1 has way more games that I like to play. With next gen Gears - my main reason for buying xbox as I am also not into FPS - i'll be pretty happy regardless who sells more.

Wow that's cool my school went for ps3 to ps4 lol


They like the PS4 hardware better, but not the games nor the main operating system. Its anyones game this gen, but MS really impressed with the launch. We kept screaming at the Kinect as well and my friend disconnected it again. It's hilarious.

 

Best quote of the night. "WTF is a Resogun?"


Well i like the ps4 hardware to i mean who doesn't right? As for the os and the games well i think Sony can update the os  later in the future and games well yea they seem to be lacking right now hope they pump out AAA games much sooner seems like a Califronia drought right now. Xbox seems to have the edge right now hope they down do what they did last gen tho. LOL it seems every one yells at the poor kinect hahahah even some of my buds do, they are like '' Xbox netflix!!!!'' lol 

LOL You don't even know the things we told the Xbox tonight. "Xbox detonate!" "Xbox go F*** yoursefl!" and much, much more. LOL The Xbox Snap kept getting fucked with. It was hilarious. One friend was like "Xbox call Pizza Hut!"

Hahahaha lol i can only imagine. Just like my buds "Xbox RRod!"  ''Xbox make tacos!" lol or just for trolling my friends while they play some Bf4 "Xbox turn off" hahahah good fun right? lol seems like people are going to make montages out of the commands. 


True. Its hilarious. The best part is just seeing the Xbox One respond. When it said "Xbox Listening" on the screen everyones was like "its so sensitive, it understands me! OMG! I FOUND MY LOVER! WHY DONT YOU LISTEN TO ME!?" 



I can tell you are pressed..

My friends or a friend who has 360 friends are all getting the Xbox one, I asked him why when the ps4 is getting the majority of the same games a d they all run and look better... And he said "cuz u have friends", and that the Xbox has more games that appeal to him.. Like halo...... (I feel this is a small very small install base of ppl tho, like the same ppl that bought halo 4.. ) a lot of 360 guys aren't moving because they just hated the ps3 that much(just because of their bias)

Also getting a console based on launch games and not long term is stupid IMO

If you're only planning one having one console in the forseeable future, sure, if you expect to get another console as soon as more games show up for it (as the OP has stated is his plan), then what's the problem?

I'm not actually impressed with MS' launch games that much, but the thing was, they happened to cover a broader spectrum of games. Killzone was another shooter when EA and DICE already were covering shooters. Ryse's melee quicktime fest was something different. That PS4 has a better experience on both x-platform shooters helps, but people only want to play so much shooters... That's why you see CoD and Battlefield selling more on XBone than PS4, because they have no competition on XBone while they do have strong competition with Killzone on PS4. And Knack... yeah, that was kind of Sony's Christmas present for their hardware designer Cerny, don't let that guy in a software studio again, OK?

Getting close to graduation and everyones already talking about which consoles to get. We played all the next gen consoles and everyone unanimously agreed Microsoft destroyed the next gen launches with a little help from Killer Instinct and Dead Rising 3. I didn't even have to bring Titanfall into it, because that will only make the disparity worse. Like twenty of us are buying the Xbox One first, so MS has won over my dormatory. They went from Xbox 360 to PS3 back to Xbox One.

Good luck on finding a decent job after you graduate.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Wait, why do people keep saying that the PS4 has a better games outlook??? Based on what's been solidly announced, I just don't see it.

S.T.A.G.E.'s post makes sense to me. Anecdotal, yes, but interesting. It may not be the popular thing among fanatical gaming geekdom, but it makes all the sense in the world. And Titanfall being a system selling hit may be an nightmare for that same subset of gaming, but all signs point to that not being so far fetched.

BUT the Sony fanbase is loyal, loud and arrogant and the PS4 seems to be a great piece of tech, so this gen will be quite a battle for the distance methinks. I just hope it's enough outside of the core ...

Because the exact same thing happened with the 360 and PS3. The 360 had a great first two years with plenty of exclusives, and Microsoft stopped buying so many games and just stuck with Halo/Forza/Gears/Fable for the rest of the gen. The PS3 got an amazing lineup of exclusives once Sony got their act together in 2009. I don't think the PS4 will take as long as the PS3 did. I really don't see why some people are saying the PS4 has a weak exclusive lineup this year. Infamous Second Son, The Order 1886, Driveclub, The Witness, and possibly Uncharted. That's at least 4 major exclusives in one year. 



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

When the launch titles were announced for both console there wasn't much in it - meteoritic for both is pretty similar. However with the big gap in terms of quality of multiplats and how that has carried out into 2014 it seems to me that as the vast majority of games will be on both consoles it would be the better option to play them on the best console - currently ps4.

My suspicion - 2016 MSFT ditch xbox1 and bring out new console breaking console cycle which will upset the apple-cart.
