Xbox One from a PlayStation Fan Point of View

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Xbox One from a PlayStation Fan Point of View

Oh it's been ages, but I seem to remember foreshadowing at the end of Gears 1 or 2 that humans were the invaders on Sera and the Locusts were the ones actually defending THEIR home from invasion of space aliens (eg: you) and excessive exploitation once humans started hoarding imulsion or something? Been ages though and I never played past 2.

Maybe I was just reading into it too much because it's the kind of twist I would enjoy.

The fact that I don't quite remember but I can recite almost every line of dialog from Xenogears and Final Fantasy IV only illustrates my stating that these AAA shooter games have weak stories that aren't memorable . :D

I used to only play sony consoles and I used to not even care about xbox. But then I saw the biggest piece of trash ever (the ps3) it did not interest me one bit, with the price it was at it gave me an awful taste in my mouth and also none of my friends were getting it either. So I got a Wii and I wasn't too happy with it. Don't get me wrong it liked it but not as much as my ps2 or ps1. So then I got a 360 and sold the wii. I was starting to really like it, I was actually liking it more than my ps2. But then a new generation came along and this one felt weird, I saw what the xbox one had to offer and what the ps4 had to offer, they both didn't really interest me for a while so I was even thinking of going to pc but I kept playing my 360. About 6 months after launch I tried the ps4 and I really liked how it was not like the ps3 but I didn't really have a game that interested me other than TLOU. So then E3 2015 came along and I started to look at what they had to offer and Microsoft's E3 got me wanting to get a xbone so I got one for fallout, halo and now quantum break. I also look forwards to getting a ps4 now for no mans sky.

My take on the One is that it was dog shit at the beginning but spencer has really changed how I look at it. I do really like the console like my 360 but I wish it had more power.

Lets agree to disagree, we just have different perspectives.

Killzone multiplayer is mediocre and the online population has always been poor.

 

I never struggle to find a online match. I also have to disagree with you, the multilayer is solid but that's opinions for you. 

Well if not struggling to find a match is the barometer we are using to determine success, well then I guess its online population is doing great. People generally haven't been that open minded when discussing Titanfall's population.

I'm not sure why what you mean then! Should of I said it's not hard to find a populated match to make it more clear? Or do you mean something else by "the online population has always been poor."

There was a time you were guilty of doing that with the Xbox One. Not saying everything else sucked, but you downplayed it.

That time hasn't yet passed.

Well, this is a non conclusion...

 

Unfortunately the policies led to the downplay of the hardware specs and this cannot be solved... Talking platform policies, none of the ms crowd admitted they were in the wrong in any way, they just said they weren't popular with the customers, so they seem to think it was in fact all good and should really have been accepted by the buyers....

 

Anyway, their platform still has a bloated interface, slow installs, and unstable controller connection :-/ as well as being the weaker console ( ps4 barely makes it and it's the most powerful console at the moment)

Want me to spoil Gears 3 for you?

Turns out the Locusts were being attacked by their own. The oil (aka immulsion) was actually a micro organism making them crazy like zombies. It eventually spreads into humans. Co character Dom sacrifices himself to help the others escape a dire situation. Eventually, to stop the spread of the parasite, the decision is made to commit genocide on the Locusts.  Marcus mourns his fallen brother.  I left out a lot but that's the gist.

Weak story, I know.  But I loved it. There's only three main Gears games and a prequel, btw.

I am a Nintendo fan who owns a PS4. I have several complains withe PSN performance as well as the poorly implemented multimedia functions in the PS4, including the lack of a remote control. Also, although subjective, comparing the libraries of released and yet to be released games, I think the XBox have an edge. As such, I have several reasons to believe I would be better served with a XBox One. Still, because of the terrible articulated original message, I brought a PS4.

I have the PS4's multimedia remote. So it's not lacking that. Second, what media functions perform poorly? Finally, and this is just my curiosity, what games give the X1 the edge?

No, I believe Sony fans exagerate the quality of Playstation exclusives. This was evident with PS3 as well, I mean Killzone was treated as a Halo killer for a brief period.

1) That isn't objective.

LOL just because you say it isn't right?

2) User reviews of exclusives are often tainted with bias, trolls, etc.

Yeah it seems like they are biased towards MS games. 

3) The only objective option I can say is Nintendo, Sony, and MS deliver very different gaming experience. Sony's focus is cinematics and I can appreciate that.

Except Bloodborne, LBP, and The Tomorrow Children completely contradict what you are saying - in fact there are no XBOX equivalents to these games.  Furthermore, Killzone and Resistance had very little cutscenes.  I would argue Gears of War is far more about cinematics, and Halo is no less about them.

When games are multiplat I think we get more objective opinions.

Yep you remove the reviewer bump XBOX games get.

In bold above.  Overall you continue to have zero facts to back up your claims.

No, I feel critics have bias and sometimes give games higher scores then deserved simply because they like the story in a game. Espeically if it tugs the heart strings. But those games generally aren't remembered as fondly in the long run. I think Batman:AK is a recent title that fall into that, because that game was shit but scored well.

MS games score well when they're genuinely great. But titles with average gameplay can score extremely well if they have a REALLY good story telling (such as Last of Us and Uncharted).

Bloodborne may be a Sony IP, but From Software is the brains of that operation. Its also more of the same of their previous games. Anyhow, I was talking about the Sony software that gets the most attention. Its the cinematic stuff Sony is more known for. The single player of Halo and Gears is story driven, but they have something Killzone and Resistance lack... good multiplayer.

What's wrong with a good story and tugging heart strings?  We need more of this IMO.  Games have become too much Hollywood action dude bro Madden Call of Duty har har pwn n00bs on the internet oriented for the past decade.   Not everything has to be judged by online dick comparing facilities and testosterone content.  I'm actually quite tired of online play being forced into everything.  You can't even have a single player JRPG anymore without minimaly being forced to at least compare dicks via achievement progress being broadcasted every time you're forced to sign on.

Halo and Gears are your benchmarks for "story" driven games?  Seriously?  LMFAO I don't even know how to respond to that.  Nearly every game in your recently completed list is straight out of the stale billion budget 6 month cycle AAA mainstream fodder list that constantly bombard the windows of Gamestop.  COD/Batman/Assasin's Creed/Halo/Gears/Mortal Kombat/Forza/God of War/etc When is the last time you really enjoyed a heartbreaking story in a game or had a story affect you IRL and leave lasting emotional scars?  That kind of thing is FAR more memorable than Master McGruntyOneLinerChief Blows Stuff Up Again And Looks Cool Doing It Part 6.

I fondly remember the goosebump inducing feelz of Final Fantasy IV or Xenogears to this day far more than I remember anything about "haha pwning n00bs" in Quake 3 or Counterstrike when I had my unfortuneate online vs shooter PC master race phase years ago. 

You have some low standards if you think Halo and Gears are "story driven".  There are manly man shooters for AXE wearing couch potato special ops alpha wannabe manchildren first and foremost.  Story isn't even a close second compared to something like Xenoblade Chronicles or Suikoden.

But just out of sake of fairness I'll side with you on Killzone having "multiplayer", let alone on par with Gears or Halo.  In fact Killzone's "multiplayer" is exactly the kind of thing that happens when you shoehorn fake multiplayer into games that are in reality single player games.

But you saying Halo and Gears are "story" oriented games is about as hilarious as the other guy saying Killzone multiplayer compares to Gears and Halo.

What do you think of Xenoblade Chronicles?  (the original one, not the action game adaptation on the Wii U)  Xenosaga? Tales of?  Ni No Kuni?  Legend of Heroes? Metal Gear?  Fire Emblem?  A Realm Reborn?  Kingdom Hearts? Old school FF pre VII before Square sold out to casual emo pop audiences?  The Last of Us?  Radiant Historia? Persona?  

COD/Batman/Assasin's Creed/Halo/Gears/Mortal Kombat/Forza/God of War/etc

When is the last time you weren't afraid to bond with a child character or felt your breath taken away by a colorful world or swept away by a symphony sound track? Because Gears and Halo are totally known for their epic sound tracks, so much that they have dedicated full time orchestras that travel the world playing Gears and Halo music at sold out events around the world... oh wait I must have confused Halo with Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, I'm sorry.  They are so close and all it's easy to mix them up.

 

Halo...Gears... "story"... bwhaha.

Recently I've taken a stance of just observing and keeping my opinions to myself but I'm making a special exception for you.  Who do you think you are? We're both gamers and we like what we like.  What makes you feel that your opinion of quality is any better than anyone else's?  With the cavalcade of spelling and grammatical errors in your posts, you may want to be less pretentious.  I've played the vast majority of the games you've named and then some.  

 

I started gaming on the NES and I play virtually any genre of game from any company. Look at my profile and my games collection (last updated probably 3-5 years ago but it'll give you a good idea of what I play).  I've thoroughly enjoyed both the Gears and Halo series.  Am I a " dudebro" by your definition?

 

Let's have a conversation.
