This is great, thanks OP I was getting bored, now we've got a good "debate" on our hands.
if the two were the same price I thin PS4 would still be winning, if the One was 100 dollars cheaper than the PS4 I think the one would be winning, but not by as much as the PS4 is winning now and therefore those other factors are significant even if price is the largest factor.
@$300 with Kinect, Yah I could see XB1 outselling if PS4 was $400
@$350 it would probably be even
@$400 PS4 would still be selling more
@$450 We wouldn't need Titanfall to boost sales
Fact is the XB1 has a lot of holes in it. Release schedule looking like Nintendo, XB1 paywall, ResoGate, price, price+kinect, kinect localizations, post DRMFiasco, I could go on...
I didn't even notice they had no games b/w Ryse/DR3/Forza and TitanFall. Yup...despite all that talk of innovation in camera technology haven't seen much innovation in gameplay that utilizes that technology, I here KSR is coming up though wonder what's going to fill the gap b/w that and KSR2? Starting to smell like Xb 1 +359.
But fret not, once the price cut happens hopefully there be a system seller out for me to make an impulse buy, Hopefully, its Halo 5 since I don't care much for Gears anymore.
This is why I love Sterling, he tells it like it is.
Those saying its simply price are delusional. Price is a key factor, but everything else he says is spot on as well.
And if you're to thick that you can't understand, or in so much delusion that you don't want to understand allow me to explain it in idiot's terms:
The PS4 uses indie support to flesh out its library the droughts between major releases. It also adds value to the console.
The Xb1 does not.
Between KZ:SF and I:SS, PS+ has given free games on each of its platforms every month, and on the PS4 those are new indie titles. Not system sellers, but games in between system sellers.
PS+ >XBL in relative value (basically the amount you get vs the amount you pay for)
One might argue that XBL gives you youtube and netflix, but the fact that these service require live mean that the cost more to use on XB1 than on PS4.
Even at the same price, the PS4 is still cheaper than the XB1.
And the added value of XB1 features are ironically made extraneous by the very devices they aimed to replace.
CIP, Its easier and cheaper to use Youtube with your smart tv rather than on the XB1 connected to it.
1. did you just call me thick?
2. what drought? I haven't had one.
1. Well, I don't remember stating anyones name, It was addressed in general but if you choose to identify yourself with the description then that is your perogative.
2. Oh I'm sorry I'm mistaken, remind me again what XB1 exclusives came out in January or Febuary? December perhaps?
