    I think many of us are in shock and awe at the ridiculous statements you have made and the lack of understanding you have. Enjoy your life though.

     ^This x10

    I see no comments about anyone being converted by what he said, if anything it made them go out and confirm that he was omitting everything that confirm exactly what is being said about the system. I guess his work was nothing more than to come here and create a long thread.

    I think there was actually one random guy like 6-10 pages back. . .

    I'll be buying both systems, so I guess I'll get the best of both worlds.

    I do recall however, many years ago, when PS3 was coming out and many of my friends were telling me - hey the PS3 has better hardware than the 360!  Better graphics power and free on-line portal!

    Well, guess which system ended up sitting on my entertainment center collecting dust 98% of the time???  The PS3.  The graphics power didn't mean anything - all the games that came out on both systems looked pretty much identical.  Xbox Live was by FAR a better on-line portal than the Playstation network.  No wonder Sony didn't charge for their on-line, if they did, no one would have paid for it. 

    Then PSN got hacked...and I got 2 free games out of it because Sony wanted to make up for 77 million users private data being stolen. 

    The point is - it's really hard to judge until you see what happens after the launch of the system.  Xbox Live has been an outstanding on-line service, the PS4 will be more powerful CPU/GPU wise.  Will it make a difference?

    Privacy concerns are understandable.  But then the PSN hack keeps creeping back into my thoughts...

    But like I said, luckily I'm in a position that I can afford both systems and will benefit from that. 

    I wonder which system will collect the most dust this time around?  :)

    -Briz

    Thankfully I and many others are in a position that they can afford both. I'm just not dumb enough to buy a system with little to offer besides redundant features and a handful of exclusives that I'm mostly not interested in while shoving a bunch of negatives on me as well. 

    As for a home media center that plays games PC > Xbox One

    As for a game console PS4 > Xbox One

     

    A funny thing to note here is that the PSN got hacked because of a perceived slight against consumer and user rights. Who's doing that this time around? Oh thats right, Xbox One lol... Xbox Live has been hacked before, but they really have painted a target on their back this time around. Hackers and modders alike are likely to have a lot of fun with the Xbox One and Xbox Live.

    In the end gamer's will choose the system that fits them the best. I just see a lot of hate over a gaming console that's just not needed. Its a waste of energy and people could be doing more constructive thing but its the age of the internet and hate. We should just rename it to HATENET since that's all I every see anymore.

    I'll be getting both in do time since they are both great consoles and have great games I want to play. I want the games and won't sweat the small things.

    This is said every time something new is tried and every time it is utterly false... Usually within 60 days of release.

    This thread screams of an XBOX PR guy trying to convert a few peeps on the internet.

    Nothing mentioned in the OP is new, and it still skirts ALL of the main issues people have with the current info on the XBOX one. The whole 'always-on' '24 hr checkin' part of the OP illustrates this quite clearly. Furthermore the way microsoft is implementing cloud computing is not a strength, it's a weakness. PS4 is giving users the option to download digitally or own a  hard copy. Xbox isn't.

    It's pretty clear that Microsoft (just like EA) did not learn from Steam's success correctly. They only see the dollar signs, and don't seem to actually understand why Steam is so successful. Steam has offline mode, it has constant sales to keep people interested. Furthermore, Steam had a fairly large backlash when it came out. And this was at a time when it literally had no competition. If it didn't have some fairly major titles carrying the distrubution platform (TF2, HL2, CS:Source, etc. etc.) it likely wouldn't still be around to evolve into what it is today.

    Cloud gaming will indeed likely be the future, but it's got to evolve over time. Trying to cram it down gamers throats all at once is about as effective as trying to feed a vegan a 12 course steak dinner. Companies need to be very careful about how they proceed with such technology, and they need to do it in bite sized amounts. Microsoft should learn from Sony. Sony has features that are also moving in that direction, but they are taking steps to ensure it's as user friendly as possible.

    I am going to preface this by saying that there is no way in hell that I am going to purchase an XBox One.

     

    However, for the people that feel like once Microsoft shuts down their server service for Xbox One that they will lose access to their games because of the online requirement, Microsoft will likely just remove the online requirement for XBox One at that point. The idea that they would choose to turn it into a brick instead of removing the requirement is a little too tinfoil hat for me to accept.

    First, I did not say it was false, I said every previous time it was false. You are the one claim THIS time it will be different. I say until proven the exception I will stick with the rule... There is no DRM to date that has been effective. At best previous attempts have been speed bumps. It is a great way for marketing to pump up prices. If you want to believe that MS has suddenly become competent at security, by all means.

    If they seriously do that then it would go down as the biggest dick move in gaming history. "Oh we had a switch to turn off the 24-hour check-in at anytime. We just kinda banked on the vocal minority to move along after their protest and let the less resistant gamers accept our way of doing things."

     

    At that point I will probably grab a X1 and hit up Amazon to scoop up a few key titles and think to myself how in the world did gamers get so freakin stupid to allow a mega-corp to plug them in a nanny system and collect data on them for 10 years just to simply enjoy a freakin hobby? All while watching MS reveal the XBox 2 with retinal scanning and all digital software on the cloud with data storage plans available.

    Xbox One, what people don't know but should:

     

    The fact that the "Kinect" sensor is constantly on, is advanced enough to distinguish between individuals, and can monitor you even in the dark, while the xbox transmits data back to Microsoft, (I believe it's recording audio too). I'm sorry, that's just plain creepy, and there's no way I'm ever letting one of those things in my living room.

     

    Hey, it's just like Steam! Ya, no, not really. Steam doesn't force the camera/mic on my PC to surveil my office while transmitting data back to Valve.

    In either case its still PS4 >>>> Xbox One 

    In price, quality, and features. Not to mention user friendly.

    How do you figure the price is better?

    PS4 399.99 XB1 499.99.....

    End result...the same. Why? Because the PS4 With the Eye is 499.99 *or just about* With the XB1 the kinect with use to be a 99 dollar addition comes standard.

    The quality? Of what? The parts inside? Same chips made by the same company with minor differences. So are you saying the AMD chips in the PS4 are higher quality than the XB1? Doubtfull.

    Features, overhead costs, games, bells and whistles? Who knows, they can say whatever they want, the systems arent even at the stores yet. Things change from E3 to release.

    But I will say one thing,Sony said they made the PS3 capable of running Linux and they were not going to take that away....Look what happened?

    Another cost people seem to miss on the PS4, the 'extra' 70 or whatever bucks a year you're going to have to pay for a PSN+ account. I still have people crying FOUL! when I bring up that with the ps4 to play online you need a plus membership.

    For me, I'm happy with my 360 and my ps3 for now. I will keep my eye on both and hopefully closer to release when they actually show something that could NOT just have been a PC running 'XB1-Fake"dows...or "PS4dos"

    So keep an open mind, and a closed wallet....Not a closed mind and an open wallet, like THEY want you :)

     

    Now in regards to the price the new Playstation Eye it has already been confirmed to have a price of $59.99 so that is cheaper also PS+ is cheaper then Gold membership so it is cheaper to use a PS4 online in the long run also while this defeats the purpose of many of the features should a person solely want to play single-player games the PS4 would again be cheaper due to not requiring a broadband internet connection which is at a minimum around $30 and upwards of $100 a month.

    PS+ is at the most $17 a month or $50 for a year also if you time your purchases correctly you can usually get a few months tacked on to your purchase for free I got 4 months a $20 value for free with my 1 year membership and my friend through the smart use of offers was able to get a whole extra year for free you also get access to random recently released blockbuster games this month they are Xcom, Uncharted 3, and Saints Row 3 later this month.

    So yes price wise the PS4 is cheaper without a doubt also spec wise Jack Tretton came out and said it directly at the camera during his Geoff Keighley E3 interview that the PS4 is without a doubt the most powerful game console and if anyone doubts this they can feel free to ask any third-party developer.

     

     

    As for more powerful I will have to wait and let the games speak for them selves. I saw both shows and Microsofts games looked way better to me. Remedy seems to think different.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rly8s1ZkkL4&list=FLksoyDFtH--Rg7IaTzzU_gw

     

    Subjective.

    I found The Order 1866 and Infamous:Second Sons more compelling than any of the truly exclusive(not coming to PC) games M$ showcased.

    I am a PC gamer and don't own a xbox 360 or PS3 but when I look at exclusive IPs I find things like Infamous,God of War,Uncharted and Last of Us more compelling than Gears of War and Halo.But again that's just me and subjective.

     For me I find games like Halo, Alan Wake, Gears Of War and Fable better games then Uncharted, God Of War and Infamous. I watch my son play those games all the time and if I was still maybe 16 I probably would too. Too bad those days are long gone.

    How old is your son are you actually one of those parents who let their child play games designated for 17+ and then all of us have to suffer when some idiot goes on a school shooting and the media lashes out at video games for corrupting childrens' minds when the games always shown are NOT MEANT FOR CHILDREN.

    Dont blame games, blame the bad parents

    Yes you pretty much said its false, not just false but utterly false.

    (This is said every time something new is tried and every time it is utterly false... Usually within 60 days of release.)

    Here I changed it for you. (This is said every time something new is tried and every previous attempt  turns out to be utterly false... Usually within 60 days of release but will see.) 

    You pretty much stated that what I said is false and will be proven false in 60 day of release. I never said it wouldn't be hacked but MS has found away to stop us from burning disc's for the 360 so yeah they might have one hell of a DRM in place. People will try to hack and mod the system but to succeed this time is going to very tough with a 24hr ping and I can't see them succeeding at all. Once they figured out how people were soft modding the 360 they shut them down and banned the box form xbox live. Xbox live was hacked once and went down for 24 hours and hasn't been hacked since, so yeah pretty good security.

     Umm...wut?

    You can hack a 360 and copy discs...lol. there have been step by step videos on how to do it on youtube for years now with copies of most games up on most gaming torrent sites.

    Anyway, news keeps getting worse for the X1, some Euro retailers are not going to carry it due to its region limitations that will prevent people from playing games on vacations and business trips and not being able to purchase games outside your region and playing them on your system...and now even...

    In addition to all the other controversies surrounding the Xbox One, we’re now hearing grumblings from independent developers who are unhappy that Microsoft is telling them that they need to have a publisher to sell their games on the Xbox One marketplace. Eurogamer last week talked with Lorne Lanning, the head of independent game developer Oddworld Inhabitants, who said that Microsoft’s new restrictions on independent studios mean that his company won’t release any new games for the Xbox One or the Xbox 360.

    [More from BGR: Cable companies are pulling punches in fight with Google Fiber]

    “Why do we need a publisher when we self-finance our games, we build our own IP, we manage our own IP and we’ve turned nearly two million units online as indie publishers sold — not free downloads?” Lanning asked rhetorically, while noting that Sony has chosen to take a very different path with its new PlayStation 4. “I believe, because there are so many seasoned, long-term game builders involved with the new PlayStation, they recognise the real innovations are going to come out of this space where people have the freedom and the insanity to try crazy new stuff.”

I use a 32gb thumb drive for my 360.3.More speculation as we don't know how the memory will be shared and when a game launches the OS's could go to low memory use while playing games. Hope PS4 gets the Gddr5 channels working right with the CPU side of the APU or that will have issues and don't try to give me BS on this because we would be running that on PC if it worked so good and not DDR3.4. You must hate steam. If the games go digital the cost comes down. Not that we don't have greedy (Looking at you EA) publishers that try to charge the same price. They might also start a digital rental system which would be nice to have but that's just speculation on my part. Hope they do it.http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2013/05/26/microsoft-responds-to-xbox-one-used-game-rumors/Don't get me wrong MS had gone about this a little ass backwards and should just open up and let the consumer know and they will. They could still be finalising all this as well. This all could change before the system even drops. It could just be a test to see how the reaction would be. Most publishers and dev's want this type of system, so don't hate on just MS its the all of them.

    Re: 1. Not authenticating every 24 hours will mostly brick the system until you authenticate. You can watch movies and television.

    2. Meh. The external hard drive will not be optional if one of the features is using the Xbox One like a DVR.

    3. The XBox will be running three operating systems and this will take 3GB of ram. This is confirmed by Microsoft. Sony's ram is also faster. It's debatable what kind of impact this will actually have though.

    4. If Microsoft's goal was digital game delivery, they should have started with that, instead of applying digital game rules to disc games. It was a stupid move, and doesn't make any sense, unless Microsoft will profit from it. Wait, now it does make sense. People will have to buy more new games, every one of which will give Microsoft a kickback.

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

    I presently have both the 360, Wii, and the PS3. Given the showings on the new systems I'll expect to only be getting the PS4, unless the Wii U can get their act together.

    The restrictions and possibilities that can be reached with the X1 make it a no go for me.

    Using  the X1 with your Cable Provider will doubtless come with some loaded cost (startup) from said provider. XLive will become a requirement.

    Who knows what a hiccup or failure from a gen 1 system of this type will cause? Loss of DVR recordings? Loss of cable service? Loss of a BD movie ?

    Having a system that reads gestures so well potentially opens the user up to reactive advertising (that thing we all work to avoid on our PC).

    The X1 is an awesome idea, but it makes me think of some of the previous versions of the Windows browser... The ones that made me to stop using Windows browsers.

    I say this as someone who has owned both an xbox and xbox360 and not a playstation. PS4 is far and away the better alternative for me as it offers more versatility, control and choice in how I can use the product with no real lossin in functionality that I can see.

    - I can play games that don't have any online play elements (how I normaly use consoles) without having to be connected to the internet in situations where I can or don't want thay access.

    - I am allowed perfect control over how and when any game updates are applied so I don't need to risk introduction of game breaking bugs that are so often found in day 1 updates when the game is already functioning perfectly well.

    - I can sit my kid down in front of the console unattended with perfect knowledge that he can't find his way past someones flawed parental control software to get to content I don't want him exposed to.

    - I don't need to worry about someone (including Microsoft) hacking into the microphone or camera to invade my privacy, get more information about my gaming habits then I want them to have or bombard me with unwelcomed advertisement.

    - I actualy get to OWN (physical disks) rather then just lease access to games.....10 years from now when the service provider discontinues service on a game I own, I can still play it.

    - Everything still works when the internet connection is out.

    - I can recoup some value from the games I own if I don't want to play them anymore by selling or trading the disks.

    - I don't need to wory about my console getting viruses.

    - I don't need to worry about opening up uneccesary holes in my firewall.

    - I don't need to worry about the device getting into an unstable state, because when it's "off", it's actualy off not just hibernating.

    - I am not placed at the whims of some outside entity as to when my device will be "obsoleted" and no longer work without being "upgraded". I decide when it's time to shelve my console, not the manufacturer.

    I understand what Microsoft is trying to do here. In general, it's a good deal for Microsoft not the consumer as it makes the consumer entirely dependant upon Microsoft and thier ongoing business decisions as to whether the device provides any usefull finctionality. It's essentialy paying full price to lease rather then own an entertainment system. Why would any consumer possibly want that? With the PS4.....I would still have the option of playing games online...but only when I want to do so.

    The Halo cgi teaser mention it, but since nothing is known of that there's no real details. The only game with any concrete info on it is Forza, and they're just using it as a giant server for AI profiles that your game downloads when you race.

    Think of the ghost fighter feature in Tekken and how you can download others' for your fighting or your AI copy in Virtua Fighter 4 Evo.

    At the end of the day the whole issue revolves around control and the software and hardware manufacturers trying to establish more of it and change the current financial relationship between them and the consumer. It will be interesting to watch play out because if Microsoft's gamble pays off, how we buy games is for forever changed. Ford and GMC don't get residuals when their creations are resold and they have put just as much effort and money into their products.

    Yes, I do know what cloud gaming is. But as I said, only Halo and Forza 5 have really mentioned it, and we know nothing of the Halo beyond the CGI teaser; Forza 5 is not even using it as such, and more of a server storage for AI profiles to download.

    In theory, a fully cloud powered game would be very hard to cheat in. But no game is using it as such as of now, and haven't heard of anyone going in that direction.

    So if you really care about that, then just keep an eye out if such a game is announced.

    Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

    It's always amusing watching the Xbox and PS fanboys pillow wars. In two years time or less a mid range pc will blow both consoles out of the water in terms of processing power and storage / data transfer capabilities.
