    ive been an xbox guy for years but i gotta agree

    I don't agree they both have great games and I'll be getting both so I'm the WINNER. I'm a gamer not a fan boy. I can pick up both for 900$ and get the exclusives that I want. This is a great time for gamer's. I think both systems have plus and minus but in the end the gamer's win.

    No restrictions on used games, no online requirement, lower price and it supports a lot of the television cr@p that Microsoft is pushing. Sony could be the gamer's console for the future.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    What about the requirement for PlayStation Plus in order to play online multi-player games.

    That means more to me than DRM or always online.  I'm always online anyway and DRM doesn't mean much when I can only play it on the console anyway.

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    Right and 90% of the games are online anyways so I don't see what the big deal is.

    I'll admit this does suck a little considering for the PS3 it was optonal, but PS+ is such a deal and I'll be keeping my subscription anyway, it's a lot better than what Microsoft offers at a slightly higher price.

    The free games are worth the PS+ price alone. Rarely has Sony put a subpar game up on the PS+ list, most are truly excellent games.

    And the best games are on PS4 like EQN

    i agree to this, but this time i will replace my xbox with a WII U or a Vita as a second console. PS4 will stay as my main console (not counting my PC of course). Xbox has nothing for me this generation. When my gold memberships ends this december, itll be a good riddance

    Yeah, but nothing about either console inspires me to put the money into that hardware and platform.  I don't want to subscribe to any gaming service like either PS+ or XBL.  If anything it convinces me more to keep it in PCs and mobile devices.  I've owned consoles in the past so it's not like I hate them.  I just don't see the value right now.

    I have to agree I have a ps3 and it been mainly used to play blu rays. Being forced  to have a sub to PS+ is nail in the coffin for me.

    I'm still a PC gamer, but yeah... Sony put Microsoft to shame... as they deserve.

    My ps+ sub comes out to about $3.25 a month and with all the heavily discounted and free games offered, it has paid for itself a hundred fold. Now I can add a mmorpgs to the list.

    There isn't one because he never said it people spread the rumor because he said he loves the ps4.   He confirmed PS2 and DCUO on the PS4 NOT EQN but said its not out of the question.

    It is a great day for gamers.

    The consoles were essentially saved by SONY at this day. If PS4 would have done the same as XBOX One, over time people would have little reason to have a console, because the lack of DRM, no online control, share games, easy resell were major boni of a console over a PC. Just shove in the disc and play. Easy gaming. MS with they "all entertainment" controling your life machine just had lost the way. Had PS4 gone the same way, consoles might be at their end. So PS4 and SONY saved consoles, I think it is no exxageration to say.

    Also for PC gamers it is a win, because if a big company like SONY does NOT follow the "always online" and DRM trend, thats a good thing. Had Sony embraced always online and DRM, this would have been the final nail in the old gaming model. Now the "game" is open on the topic of DRM.

    I am going to support Sony for that as good as I am able to.

     

    It is a great move for gaming! I even had a few tears in my eyes watching the show and the facts. And we can tell, we have witnessed this event! :D

    this is what makes  ps+ a really good service compared to the money grabbing xbox live gold service that gives you nothing but online access and cost more.

    Now i seriously would not be surprised at all if EQ next is on the PS4 too, especially considering Planetside 2 on top of ESO.

    Xbox Gold will offer 2 free games per month.  PS+ is still cheaper though.  Neither one do much for me.  It's not so much the cost, but it's one of those extra gouge taxes that keep perpetual revenue coming in.
