PS4 is better all around and for the price. I liked xbox 360 better than PS3, but I'm getting PS4 because XB1 looks like a massive ****storm. It seems like half of their new features are restrictions. I don't want to support a product which requires the online ****, Kinect always on, and all the restrictions on used games.

Pretty good breakdown that shows what has what. It is being updated as information is released.


If xb1 does something about their DRM I might consider getting one but at this point I won't.

PS4 needing PS+ for online play is whatever. I paid for PS+ to begin with but I am sure some people will be upset. They offer a lot of free games so I can't really argue paying for something I was already willing to pay for anyway. Its cheaper than XBL as well.

I've always been more of an xbox fan. Pretty much every aspect besides netflix being behind a paywall was more to my taste. But now its hard to argue for it if I can't do what I want with what I paid for.

One thing I don't understand is when steam has DRM, "no biggie, steam is awesome!" When microsoft, "those ****ing crooks that are anti-consumer."

Not so much on pbn but other forums.

PC games have had DRM, codes, etc in place for an extremely long time and it's just inherent on that platform. People still get around it with piracy and such; probably one major reasons the publishers want the DRM in place with consoles. Piracy.
That being said when you go from consoles never having to require it to suddenly talk about needing it, that doesn't make people happy. But, if people didn't sit around justifying why they steal/pirate game software then maybe if they spent some actual money the publishers wouldn't feel threatened over their product being taken and wanting to protect it. A totally legitimate concern in my eyes.
If you ask me the people that are complaining the hardest are probably the ones saying 'Well I'm just going to pirate my stuff now' and it just compounds the issue.

I would definitely side with the Ps4 at this point in my book. I'm not crazy over the xbox reliability, or lack there of, after the 360. The games were solid and I miss playing those but I want a reliable system. My playstations have all been bullet proof through the years.

Well for starters, steam doesn't require an online check every 24 hrs.

Steam offers huge sales and demos, can play your games offline for however long you want and it is just...well, awesome. MS most likely won't offer any of that ****.

A lot of people forget that steam was also HATED when it first came out. I remember not updating CS so I could avoid steam. The difference is they actually listen to their customers and changed/updated things for the better.

^^^ this. I love the 360 but the XB1 seems like a pile of garbage. PS4 for me.

XB1, it's not going to be as horrible as people think. I could careless if the Kinect has to be on 24-7. You can pause the Kinect at anytime while you're gaming or doing whatever. Only certain publishers are going to require you to buy a code for used games, on top of that when a game comes out you only have to buy a code the first few months the game is released. So, buy it new and all of your problems are solved. If you're that broke to complain about a code that is a few dollars you shouldn't be gaming. Also, the whole "having to sign on every 24 hours" thing shouldn't bother anyone. All of these "restrictions and new features" are not as harsh as people make it sound. I have had a PS3 and Xbox 360 since they came out and I prefer Xbox Live any day of the week over PSN. I will end up buying a PS4 regardless, but the XB1 is first on the list.

you can also easily have multiple people log on your account, grab one of your games and LAN it up. at least you used to be able too, haven't done that in years

the 24 hour thing will bother everyone when the inevitable happens and xbox live gets DDOS'd or hacked. if that **** survives the holiday season with out issues i will flat out be amazed.

its also a problem in (not so) rural areas that still dont have internet access. I live about 10 miles outside of town, and if you go another 10 miles out, where its still very populated, the infrastructure for internet hasnt even been built yet, but there are tons of offline gamers living there.

No one has mentioned the fact that not every gamer wants or utilizes Kinect. I feel like at this point in time MS is simply trying to shove Kinect down the consumers throats whether we want it or not and that pisses me off. Why should I pay $100 more for something I really don't want and will rarely, if ever, use?

this. theres still a lot of places here where you cant even get a 1.5mb connection. lag is one thing but updates keep getting bigger and bigger and DLC is the norm now, when it takes 8 hours to download something it becomes a huge pain in the ***.
