Also ZombiU was unfairly reviewed IMO, I think it's a good game. Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Super Mario 3D world, Yoshi's Island etc are all coming out for it, so there's a lot to look forward to.



Well, to be quite honest right now there isn't a single PS4 game at launch that interests me, where as on Xbox One Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Ryse (to a certain extent) and Crimson Dragon interest me quite a bit. The future games for the console at this point also interest me a bit more, with Titanfall/Quantum Break being my most wanted (announced) games behind FF15 coming out for next gen consoles.

As for the change of heart, it's about the games (above) and the tech. The new Kinect looks interesting and is far more advance than the one on the 360. Being able to control my whole entertainment system without the need of a remote or controller is good and seems to work really well. I think a lot of people make fun of it because it's not about games, but really the console has tons of games, so when you look at the Kinect 2.0/what it can do on its own it is quite impressive and should compliment/enhance the console in general (not particularly on games, but your media/Netflix/menu browsing/tv experience). I also like controller better at least on paper/what I have seen (I like how the individual triggers rumble for example).

Just overall the console seems more interesting at this point with more features, and it has a stronger (in my opinion) launch lineup and future games at this point.
That makes sense. All the things you're intersted in I have no desire for though haha. The kinect is something I don't care for honestly. And it's appears to be the same score as last time around, the PS4 is ahead of the Xbox but the Xbox has more gadgets and programmers understand it better so better games at lauch.

I spent a large deal of money on making my entertainment and television impressive I want a gaming console to game not run my system. I have a roku and all the sync with my computer and laptop. I looked at both systems and seen ps4 as gaming and xbox as an all encompassing system, which if that's what you want its clearly superior.

Don't get me wrong, the games come first and the games are the #1 thing that make me want the Xbox One over PS4 right now. I don't really like indie games that much and I'm not a Killzone fan, where as at least 4 launch games on Xbox One interest me and 3 of them are series I'm already a fan of, which as you can imagine boosts my enthusiasm for the console a lot. Plus Titanfall and others later on.

The ability to control my whole entertainment system with my voice/not need any remote/controller to utilize my whole system is just a bonus. As someone who doesn't have my entertainment system set up beyond "click power and flick through channels", it's a pretty compelling piece of technology.

I mean I want a PS4 eventually as well for its exclusives, just going to get an Xbox One first.

If you want a card game that involves lots of strategy, not having to empty your wallet constantly, and innovative. Try Infinity Wars.

I mean you don't have to buy anything in Hearthstone unless you are impatient and want everything now now now. I'll have to check out Infinity Wars though. I am not all that good at card games, but I love them lol.

No problem, I'll just do what Cartman did to the TSA on South Park.

Nah, but seriously that's what everyone said when cellphones started having cameras on them or even today laptops have cameras that are very easily turned on from a remote location, everyone eventually just accepted it and moved forward. The kind of tech that the Kinect is displaying is going to be the future when it comes how we run our homes/devices (complete voice/hand control, no need for any physical devices), so might as well get used to it now. Plus you can unplug it or turn it off anytime you want, it's not mandatory.

I still haven't found anything to play. Nothing is reaching out to me for like 3 weeks now, I'm glad next gen is right around the corner as at this moment I'm pretty "meh" on gaming from the lack of games that interest me.

Gave State of Decay a run, still unfinished for PC and it shows. I'll check it out again when they get the M&KB controls sorted out.

Went back to ME3 multiplayer and been doing a lot of that lately.

Also my latest Fallout:NV run that I'm trying to complete so I can free up the disk space. Doing Lonesome Road now, then pushing on to finish the main plot.

I mean I want a PS4 eventually as well for its exclusives, just going to get an Xbox One first.
Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon wont be behind a pay wall on the PS4 and that's enough for me to buy it first but like you I want the other console as well.

As far as the games go, now that Sony has ditched the cell and just went with superior (however so slight) hardware, the programming is on an even playing field. They wont be identical to program for but the ps4 wont be such a challenge.

That's a big deal in my mind as someone who has often beta tested MMO's. I know the less time they spend in one aspect of a game the more they can devote to others so I expect programmers to make more use out of the horsepower of the ps4 than they did with the ps3.

Of course, on line gaming being behind a pay wall (PS4) and not being backwards compatible is disappointing but it's not a deal breaker. The Xbox One wont be backwards compatible either but both will offer a cloud service for older games. I dont know or have a lot of experience with such features so I cant speak too or against them I just know I have a shit ton of ps3 games so Im keeping my ps3 = end of issue.

I cant help but notice that Sony has for the most part always been a hardware company and Microsoft has always been a software company. How that is good for one or the other is a matter of perspective I imagine.

I cant stand that Sony is so involved with anti piracy and I cant stand how involved Microsoft is with the NSA so bah..

I dont think I want a console that I cant buy second hand games for and Xbox will eventually just release a update and say "eat it" just like Sony did when they took the OS option away. As it stands now you can play used games on both. The always on BS is rampant between the two consoles as well. I know both said they would leave that option available but when they can turn it off whenever they like forgive me for thinking they eventually will, anyways the spy shit makes me angry.

When you strip them down to what console should perform best at just gaming I think Sony has the edge but it isn't a forgone conclusion. In fact Im more excited about what Microsoft can do with their Console in the future than I am about Sony.

Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One game console could allow players to face off against PC gamers who own the same game, Forbes reports.
That feature is something id be interested in and IMO is something to watch.

Microsoft IS a software company and live is better than play station network ATM so there is that. Sony has plans to change PSN so I'm hopeful they will catch up on the software side.

Really, I wish they would just build a console together that kills but thems just pipe dreams.

You are all just missing out on the wii U because its going to make a big recovery and blow the gaming market away with superior game design.. no really! Because hardware is not the be all, end all! I hear Mario worked it out and got the Console a TRT exemption so heh watch out!

Sorry for the wall o text!

I completely agree with some of your points. Both consoles have positives and negatives, it's just a matter of which positives matter more to you (nothing is perfect, so I try to focus on the positive even though I fail at it sometimes). Both are great consoles (well, both are highly underpowered and I made a big post on this a few weeks back, but even then I said I'd eventually get them anyways).

It really comes down to the games at the end of the day. The thing that pushes me to an Xbox One over PS4 right now is, at launch, the Xbox One has the better games (for me), and thus I will be happier with the purchase. It also has some games I'm looking forward to in the future, like Titanfall and Quantum Break (made by the Alan Wake team). Kinect and all the neat features it has is just a big bonus that pushed me over the edge to want it that much more.

I have a Wii U so I'm not missing out, I love that console and it has top notch games coming, excited for most of them.
