Wow, I missed that.

Definitely leaning towards PS4 right now...

Edit: that's it, buying a PS4

Watching the press release and reading up on the "Xbox One". My thoughts:

- I actually like the name. Certainly a lot more than the "Xbox 720". It fits well.

- The physical design of the console is very "meh". Sort of like a VHS player made in the future. Very bulky.

- Voice commands and overall function of the console's layout is both familiar and intriguing. However, this doesn't apply very much to the average user.

- Kinect functions seem improved, but again, not a big deal to most gamers.

- Very, very relieved they didn't mess with the controller too much. Looks slick as ever. The overall shape will hopefully remain to be my favorite controller ever.

- It's too hard to tell just how powerful the specs are at this point.

- Rumors continue to swirl that games will be linked to one account and one account only. A fee would needed to be paid if using an account other than your own to play one of your games. I pray to GOD that this isn't true, but I have a feeling it is.

- Rumors also swirl around that this console will allow users to trade-in games through the console (games on demand).

There seems to be a lot of promise, but I'm incredibly concerned with how cheap Microsoft is looking based on rumors. The original price point for release will already be incredibly substantial. Add on the fact that you will have to pay $60+ a year for Xbox Live access and these rumored "fees" for playing games not linked to your account. I can only imagine what other hidden "fees" there may be.

The release date also sucks for me knowing that I won't get a next-gen release of an NHL game until NHL 15. I am excited to hear about EA Sports' new engine. Looks promising.

I was disappointed with the Xbox reveal.

Definitely going the PS4 route.

That first one is so fake it isn't funny

The second is harder to tell, try PMing Bonk, he knows this stuff

As far as Xbox vs PS goes: I'd go for PS4 but I have a ridiculously powerful PC so I'm good.

I still think the Wii U can be salvaged, if only because of the Nintendo games. I'm interested in the Sonic game that was just announced.

I was a Nintendo fanboy, but they have kind of turned to **** now. 3DS is good, but after like two years now, there are still barely any good games. I'll probably eventually buy a WiiU, but only for the games, and there still isn't a Zelda, Mario, Metroid, etc. for the WiiU. Went to Xbox not too long ago, and it was good until today.

Playstation is lookin mighty good right now.

I'm still rocking a 40gb FAT, once I've done my RAF training I'm going to get at least 250gb on a slim, by then I'm hoping the PS4 price has dropped a bit and all the teething issues are sorted!

I wish the PS4 had PS3 backwards compatibility so much. My PS3 broke recently and it would be nice to get both in one.

I'll probably get a PS3 now and get a PS4 after 2 years or so.

Also, re: Xbox One price, a pre-order in the UK which I believe includes FIFA and Forza is priced at £400..

The only thing stopping me from getting a PS4 instead is that I dont know anyone who owns a play station.

Yeah, it sounds like a good price although PS3 came out so long ago so I don't really remember how it compares in price! I can tell you I'm not keen on it haha!

Hey, it shouldn't be that hard to convince them not to get an Xbox 1.

But what if you want to bring a game disc to a friend's house and play there? You'll have to pay a fee—and not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that game—in order to use a game's code on a friend's account. Think of it like a new game, Harrison says.

Same here, I know my best friend is probably going to rage at me when I tell him I'm considering PS4.

All I've heard from him about the One so far is "it doesn't look that bad, looks better than PS4", which severely worries me.

Yeah I'm a Playstation guy but I've owned both and I decided I'd buy which ever I thought was best and not just blindly choose Playstation, but it looks like it could be better anyways.

I'm getting both next gen systems. I've met way too many good friends through Xbox Live and....well I've been a Playstation owner since the PS1. In fact, I used to be a hardcore PS fanboy back in the day and had a blind hatred for everything Xbox.


I have a feeling the Xbox One is going to be the more expensive console coming out. I just can't see Sony over-pricing their console this time round.

Neither PS4 or Xbox One require a constant internet connection.

Also PC gaming is very limited and boring.

You have to be on at least once a day.

PC gaming is anything but limited. That's just ridiculous, when many games have large modding communities, and Steam is helping independent developers have their games and creations reach a massive audience. Console gaming is the definition of limited.

So once Microsoft decides to shut those servers down many years from now, that cherished gaming system will be a nice big plastic brick.

My old gamecube, Wii, Original Xbox and old PC are plastic bricks and they dont need internet. Plus the online once a day could easily be turned off in an update in the future before the servers went down. Or just easily modded...

No sports games on PC. No good online shooters on PC. PC is only good for Skyrim, WoW and LoL
