Whose getting which platform? Discussion commencing...

:hm, I'm debating on selling my Xbox 360 COD version with controllers, headset and games and ordering a PS4. Seems the PS4 and PS+ network have many more positives to offer, not to mention the lower price of a PS4.

I used to have an older 360 then sold that for a PS3 then sold that and came back to a 360 COD version to be back with some buddies and get some game time in.

What's your thoughts on the PS4 v Xbox One. Whose going to what platform and why?

Xbox One.

i have the Xbox 360 now and everybody i currently game with have said they are going Xbox One so no need to change anything. i have never had a problem with Microsoft, Xbox, or their customer service. so i think i will stay here.

I agree. After years of of Xbox support, they really have just lost it. I wonder how long until they cave with the 'always on', DRM and non-backwards compatibleness. I think MS is going to lose this one in a landslide.

I will be going with the PS4. Mostly because I have loved my PS3 so much. And the fact that its $100 cheaper. I've never had any problems with the Playstation platforms however I have noticed that because the online service is free for Playstation, it tends to take a little longer to get things fixed than Xbox Live does. From what I've heard anyway.

The only thing stopping me from committing 100% to PS4 is call of duty and the fact that I have always played it on xbox. The latest iteration by Treyarch has really disappointed me, though, so not sure how big of deal it will end up being. I know its going back to IW for the next one, but still not sure what I'll do.

Both consoles are pretty similar in most other aspects now that xbox will play blue rays.

I will likely go with Xbox one because I believe Xbox Live's quality over PS Network (unless things have drastically improved over the last couple years for PSN) .

I am most anticipating Tom Clancy's new game "The Division" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiaRSuyQ7zA) with an open world.

I wasn't sure if I was going to upgrade until I saw the above trailer.

Blak Smyth
06-12-2013, 08:56 AM
I would like to check out both new systems more before I make a descision, this is the first time I have ever considered switching.
I know I have some good friends that are considering as well, they would certainly influence my descision.

King James
06-12-2013, 08:58 AM
I'm really looking forward to "Watch Dogs". Hadn't seen the trailer for "The Division", it looks good as well.

i was always an xbox guy, had the original and the 360, but overall i experienced too many problems with it. it took me a while but i switched to the ps3 because it is an overall better machine (hard to compare getting 4 gigs with the stock xbox and 120 gigs with the stock ps3, or whatever the numbers were). the only downside was that everyone i know has xbox, so it makes it hard to game with them. when it comes down to it, i'm way happier with the ps3 than i was with the 360, so i only see it right to pick up the ps4 over the One. unless of course it comes out that the ps4 sucks and everything is better over in xbox land, i'm not that loyal, i just want the best machine because i feel like i use it more for other things than gaming recently

Wow these all look stellar, I am starting to look forward to the new era.
I asked a few friends the OP question and was surprised to learn many are thinking of switching to PS4.

irratebass
06-12-2013, 11:05 AM
I am thinking of going to the PS4 after 5 committed years with the Xbox, because no backwards compatibility and too expensive.

I probably wont make the switch until after a year of it being out though so the bugs have been cleaned up (rrod anyone?)

I forgot about TitanFall being an Xbox exclusive, that game is going to be amazing!
Will likely get it for xbox 360 before I get a new gen console.
This game alone may make up my mind.

rooneymurph
06-12-2013, 11:47 AM
The game plan right now is to wait until the new gen consoles are released, then when the price drops on a 360 bundle, snag that and have one of each 3rd gen. I can enjoy all that I've missed out on for Xbox and wait until later 2014 to potentially get a 4th gen console at a lesser price (with various firmware upgrades, assuredly).

Online gaming is really about the friends you make with other gamers. Having been on XBox since the beginning, I will likely stay there.

What's making me consider switiching is the price, no backwards compatable games on the "one", "always on" feature on the "one", and nothing really free with xbox live. I also do not care for the motion thing with Xbox, if I wanted one I'd buy one but now they are forcing me to own one.

If I do switch and get the PS4 I'll pay for the PS+ and get the free stuff that comes with including downloaded games.

So no 360 game will work on the 1 or whatever it's called?

That's another reason I am thinking of switching. I don't care for Kinect, nor will I ever....xbox live is certain to go up another $10 (just guessing, but why wouldn't it?) I don't play online with friends much anymore, I prefer single campaigns that take more than a weekend to beat and well worth my $.

I am okay with no backwards games, I do not keep my old games anyways.
For me, my descision will be a matter of exclusive content & friends switching or not switching. I am really pumped about TitanFall but I will be able to get that one on 360 so I will have to see some other exclusives to keep me with Xbox.

06-13-2013, 08:15 AM

Right now I prefer Xbox. But if rumors are true the Xbox1 embodies everything I hate, from DRM to a camera that actively watches you. It's like Microsoft made a list of things that piss people off and confused that with it's "wanted feature" list. PS4 here unless something changes.

That's the problem. It's not actually fair. Network lag for the host is simulated so they have some latency but because it's simulated, their latency stays 100% consistent while everyone else's lag will fluctuate at least 50-100 milliseconds; if not more depending on time of day, etc. At least on a dedicated server everyone's latency will fluctuate creating a fair playing field.

The gameplay looks incredible.
I gave up gaming a couple years ago, no desire for the learning curve to keep up with the FPS titles. These games look like it'd take a college course to catch up.
I'm hoping I don't have to buy one of these for the kids, but I probably will. Were it me, I'd go to PS without a doubt. I've not forgotten the screwing I got on the 360 release, and MS can pound their platform in their ass, so far as I'm concerned.

I'd expect Sony to be a big winner on this one. All they need to do is listen to the gamers. MS doesn't even understand that sentence. :)

MrClean
06-20-2013, 10:47 AM
PS4 for me, I have too many games for the PS3 that I don't want to give up. I won't buy the new one until the PS3 dies. We watch a ton of movies on it so I figure it'll happen eventually, sooner rather than later.
It's tough, I hate Sony and I hate Microsoft, apparently I don't hate Sony enough to switch platforms. :D

chippewastud79
06-20-2013, 10:54 AM
Microsoft has now backtracked on their ridiculous policies. At least Sony was good for something by forcing Microsoft to allow users to resell games and not always be online. Still haven't seen definitive proof on backwards compatibility. :sh

Have pre ordered four PS4s for release day acquisition. Plan to quickly flip three to pay for mine (yes, I'm one of THOSE people). Actual conversation I had with a guy at work a couple of days ago:

Him - "You getting a XBOX One or PS4?"
Me - "PS4. You?"
Him - "Why are you getting a PS4?"
Me - "Familiarity, overbearing restrictions built into the XBOX One, similar specs, yet PS4 is a hundred bucks cheaper..."
Him - "Well the XBOX One comes with a Kinect and the PS4 doesn't."
Me - "Whoopity damn do. Never did care for Kinect/Move/Wii. When I wanna play a video game, I want to plop my ass down on the couch and veg out for a couple of hours."

06-20-2013, 06:38 PM
I might have to reevaluate since Microsoft decided to pull their heads out of their nethers. The Kinect still worries me because now that it's standard there is no telling how many games will have irritating hand wavy crap built into them.

I'm a happy owner of a PS2 and a PS3, so I'm going to keep the streak going. I don't need a media hub, don't like to exercise while I game, and the DRM blows for the Xbox One, so it's an easy choice for me. :)

I have an 8-year old that has asked for an Xbox 360 for Christmas. I will be staying with the older Xbox, not the Xbox One, as his friends have plenty of games for trading. He specifically asked for the older one. Now, if he uses it for playing games only, why would I need to get a 250GB over a 4GB?

Blak Smyth

Having owned all previous versions of the Xbox and PlayStation I'll just be picking up the PS4 this time. Too many things I dislike about the new Xbox this time around. It will be weird not owning both systems and comparing them (games/media/etc). Let me know what you Xbox One guys think when it drops. I want to see how MS irons out some of their snafus during the last few months.

So, the launch for both have happened. I'm curious to see what everyone thinks? I got my PS4 and so far I'm pleased with it. Everything runs great on it. Menu system is smooth as glass and games run very well. I've talked to my brother who has an Xbox One and he seems to think from our conversations that the PS4's menu system is a little better but that in time Xbox will get there. The games look great but neither console launched with that killer title so in time things will get better for both systems. I'm not about deciding a winner or loser here as I plan on getting both eventually. I like that PS4 is more geared towards gaming but I also feel that Xbox in time could be a great entertainment center console but right now I'm not a fan of Kinect just yet but I'm hoping MS works out some of the launch glitches and puts together an awesome kinect system eventually. Well, that's my :2 and look forward to hearing how it's going for everyone else

I'm loving my PS4. I've only played Ghosts on it it so far, but everything looks great. Menus are easy to use. The only complaint I have is that the controllers don't hold a charge like the PS3s. With moderate use, I have to switch and recharge controllers twice a week.

Enjoying my PS4 so far. I've got Killzone, BF4, AC3, and basically all the free games for it. I'm enjoying it so far. Killzone looks amazing and if it's just the first release in terms of what this console can do as far as graphics go then I can only imagine the games will look amazing in the next couple of years. Can't wait to see what elder scrolls online and other bethesda releases will look like, naughty dog, and the other power house companies have in store for us. PS4 is just a smooth amazing gaming console. I love that it's not trying to be anything more than that. Yeah you can get the entertainment stuff but it really wasn't meant for that. Don't have an xbox one yet so I can say much regarding that.

Looks like Microsoft completely missed the mark with their customer expectations. They are now selling Xbox One without the Kinect for $100 less. I've never owned any XBox nor am I a fan, but I hope they do well for competition's sake (especially with Nintendo almost dead in the water in the console market).

I have been on the playstation bandwagon since PS2

PS4 has given me no reason to switch, and they have only improved with the much nicer controller :)

I haven't played the Xbox One yet though - im sure it's a nice system... Until PS4 slips up big I will ride the wave for as long as I continue to game.

Though - Now that I think about it as I type - I am super pi**ed off that they decided to drop DNLA support. That was the holy grail IMO of the PS3.. Though they say it is coming?

Well Since Xbox One & PS4 have decided that neither system will play their old games, I am thinking of holding out yet again until my bday in March and picking up an Xbox One bundle of some sort (maybe even a used console with a 1 yr warranty from Gamestop) and move the 360 out into the man cave for Netflix and what not.

Still debating, really sad that my old games that cannot be played on the new system.......sure I get it, but to me it's a huge smack in the face for gamers.

I'm still a few months from being able to get one. I've had an Xbox, and a 360 but currently I'm leaning towards a PS4. I'll probably get one then later down the road get the other when it's price drops. We ended up with a 360 and a PS3 so it seems possible to happen with the next gen. I like the though of retiring one or both of them to the man cave. There's a lot I want to do out there. Far Cry, The Division and Watch Dogs all look pretty awesome. Hoping for a new Skyrim-esque gameplay, one of those may do it.
