PostSubject: XboxOne or PS4   Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:34 am

Ok I understand we have Xbox Fanboys on here but thought I would throw the question out anyway!


So what are people thinking about the consoles?
Is there a console that is winning you over?
And why?

What will you be buying?

Will you get it on release date or wait awhile?!

Whats exciting you the most about the next gen consoles and game?

Well I got really excited over the PS4 reveal last night, so much I registered a new account and preordered.

However today I've sat and thought about it.

Price wise the XBO is better value. You get much more for your money in services and of course the kinect.

PS4 is virtually no different from the PS3, except it's got more power and better graphics.

Sony have actually introduced nothing new, and gotten away with it due to players fear of change.

The limits imposed by MS on preowned sales, really don't effect us that much. It's only if you want to borrow or lend games that it becomes an issue.

The 24 hour check in is a non-issue really. I don't see what all the fuss is over that?

What I see happening is that Sony will hands down win the initial battle. But when developers finally start to realise that the incom from preowned sales can be a huge benefit,. Then the XBO will get many more exclusives, and eventually win the war.

So far pre-order on amazon : XboxOne winning so Xbox might win initial release sales, plus nice little touch by Microsoft by playin on achievement whores need for cheevos and introducing that day one achievement, lol!

I'm still un sure which machine if any ill go for, ps4 is ahead only just for me, not so much anything they have said or done just feel I need a change and the £80 price difference is just too much for my budget, thats 1-2 games lol! plus I'm really not that fused by all the extras Xbox offering, I dont use it on the 360 and won't need nor use it on XboxOne.
all I use my Xbox for is gaming, thats all I want it for. I dont use kinect and dont like the idea of having to use it (I'm a lazy bugger, lol)

thats my two pence worth!

All fair comments.

I can't see the price of the XBO staying that high though.

I've preordered 2 XBO's from zavvi, which atm are still at the price I initially preordered them at (£399 each)

But I've also preordered the day one release packages from shopto (just incase zavvi put the price up)

Also got 2 PS4's preordered incase I change my mind. lol

I just hope I don't forget to cancel some of them. LOL

Good Lord Publik!! If by chance you forget to cancel one of those preorders, feel free to send it my way!!! Laughing


I'm not biting on either of these consoles right out of the gate. I've never been a "day-one" must buy kind of guy when it comes to systems anyway, and I've got plenty of unplayed games yet to tackle on my 360....I figure I'll wait until the dust settles and see where I go from there.

Im afraid PS4 mite be the choice, xbox 1 needs to change some things, Price is not and issue here as xbox has got more but the lending of games is for me im just not quite sure tbh at the moment, but my friends are thinking of getting a ps4, in the end up il av both Razz 
But Dead Rising 3 Looks Class,
Im working that much now i dnt av the time to play the xbox often as i would like so stick with 360 until sumthing comes out that is worth my wile
Only thing is PlayStation is not my thing so im tore between my love for xbox and having a Standard Games Console in PS4 HELP!!!!!!!

i doubt i'll get the xbox one for a while (if ever) i'm happy enough with my 360

the 24hr gaming lock-out is a weird one, what happens if you go on holiday? or go away for work? do you get locked out completly?

Yeah you will get locked out until you sign into xbox live again.

This is a bit of an odd one.

Nope, not a break! I'll see if I can find the info, it gives you one hour, whether that's an hour after Internet cuts yous off or what I dunno. I'll have a look for the info but angry joe mentions it in his 2nd rant video

The Xbox One does not require an Always Online Connection, but it does require a periodic internet connection. After connecting your console to the internet and logging in to your Xbox Live, you can play a game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console. Offline gaming is not possible after these time limits until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV, Blu-ray and DVD movies offline.








That's the direct quote!
