PS4 me.

Despite being cheaper, PS4 has the technical advantage, except for the camera which I don't want anyway, and in general I prefer Sony's exclusives over Microsoft's and Nintendo's.

Lately I've been obsessed with watching Planetside 2 videos on YouTube, but I'm also looking forward to Destiny, Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Elder Scrolls Online, DC Universe Online, Tom Clancy's The Division, Infamous: Second Son, Metal Gear Solid 5, Drive Club, and Outlast.

Thank goodness I finally got a job so I can afford all that, though Planetside 2 and DC Universe will be completely free and Drive Club and Outlast will be included with PS+.

Greatness awaits.

PS4 in the House of Chubb, just like the last 2 generations.

I think I will wait for the 'post-christmas' price drop though, PS3 is going out on a high and I am enjoying the Wii U too much to consider splashing out on another console yet...

Pity about having to pay to play online on the PS4. I'll be getting one though :w00t:

Wow, did not know that. Not much of an online gamer myself but it is enjoyable in small doses. Not really going to swing my opinion but its not good news for me.

Yeah that was the low point of E3 for me, but the more I look at what you get with PS+ the more I can see the value, especially with my game buying/playing habits.

1) I've bought a lot of indie titles, themes, and avatars that ended up either free or discounted through PS+
2) I enjoy participating in betas, and PS+ members get in earlier
3) Even though I buy most games I'm interested in right away, if they become free through PS+ later I can trade the disc in toward something else
4) I'll take advantage of the Full Game Free Trials a lot, and if I don't buy a game because the trial shows me I don't like it, PS+ will have saved me money
5) There have been many games I didn't want enough to buy, but would have at least tried when they became free through PS+

Everyone has to assess the value of PS+ for themselves, but it will pay for itself with my gaming habits.

PS Plus is so worth it. For 50 bucks a year I have gotten around 15 free full PS3 games and about 15 free psn games. Not to mention 75% or more off of other titles. I had to upgrade my PS3 to a 1tb drive so I could have the space to download all the free stuff I've gotten. Cloud storaghe for saved data makes backing up a breeze, too.
PS Plus will be required for online play on the PS4, but it's one hell of a value, as they will continue to offer free PS4 titles every month like they do now.

Playstation 4 has my vote...Despite Microsoft's earnest attempt to undo all the damage their press conference at E3 did, I think it's safe to assume the damage is permanent. Microsoft has shown a great deal of disrespect to its customers and, in turn all developers (who are also gamers).

I've never owned a Play Station in my life.  The closest I've come was being a teenager and spending Friday evening's at a friend's house playing Red Alert on the PS1 (before it was called PS1).  I've owned the Xbox and the 360, and I've been a fan ever since I played that first game of Halo way back when.  And with the promise of Destiny coming out for the Xbox One, I think I'll be sticking with Microsoft.

I'm going to wait a while and see what happens before picking up a PS4 or an XboxOne. I bought a WiiU when it was first released, big mistake! There are only a couple of decent games for it, with most of the good games coming a year and a half AFTER the system released. The mandatory Kinect thing on the XboxOne is kind of lame because it makes the system more expensive. Also, I am on the fence about motion gaming, we didn't really see any stellar implementations of it in the current gen, so I'll wait and see. Although, the new Killer Instinct on XboxOne has definitely got my interests. I will probably try to get both systems eventually.

Im not into consoles but it's really a no contest. As far as I can tell the only thing Xbox has is Halo which is probably enough to make sales though. Im just sorry Killer Instinct 3 is a Xbox exclusive, that sucks. That series is legendary.

Playstation network being down for ages was fine was it? lol

Microsoft has never once let Xbox Live go down. You get what you pay for.

I'm getting the Xbox One purely for Kinect and as a media hub in my living room. The Xbox one is superior as a media hub and my PC is superior to both as a gaming machine, so for me the PS4 is pointless. It's always personal preference. There actually isn't a better console, well certainly not just now. You won't know the true capabilities of each until a year or so after release. Something I love about the way MS works with the xbox is that they can completely revamp the thing during it's life with updates, which Sony has never done. Xbox tries to be different and new. PS just does the same old thing.

It's funny how people moaned about the "restrictions" before. Because it was exactly the same system (better actually) than steam. Steam saved PC gaming and MS tried to use the same system for their console but adding new features. Like being able to share all your games with 10 people you choose, so 10 people from your friends list can play all your games along as you are not playing that specific game. Cloud also means being able to download your profle and ally our game son any other xbox. You could also gift nay of your games to others allow trading or giving.  You could also trade games using codes.

All this made it easier to share and give games while also saving the environment form millions of plastic boxes and disks being made.....

Of course people don't realise these things and just see "restrictions". lol Funniest part was... People asked for it... They did it and then people complained... Hilarious. (also the complaints were started by PS fan websites... then everyone who doesn't know what they are talking about started sharing it all over the internet, like on facebook)



Are people really stupid enough to think either company cares about anyone?! lol They both work TOGETHER. Hahaha. They both make parts for both consoles. Remember the big blu ray vs downloading thing from Xbox vs PS3? Well MS was making parts for the blu ray player. lol These companies only care about money, they couldn't care less about the gamers.
