Have to speak up about something

                          Ok i need to get this off my chest because it has been bothering me since reveal of both of these consoles. Am i the only one who thinks that PS4 is still living from the hype at E3? I really dont think it can only be me, when i look at these 2 consoles i honestly truly do not see a reason to pick the PS4. I mean so far lets be honest the X1 has the better game lineup and apparently that is the "main thing for PS4 buyers". The weird thing with graphics that still confuses me is that Ryse is the best looking game out of all next gen games we know about at this time, and Forza as well looks incredible so why are people claiming that PS4 is so much better when to me it looks opposite.

                       The online networks i mean honestly i really think that speaks for its self but if not lets talk about it. X1 XBL is going to offer dedicated servers for EVERYTHING and a unlimited cloud storage for all Gold member.  I have owned both a 360 and a PS3 and i have actually tested both networks. I downloaded the same exact game on both consoles on the same EXACT network and the 360 literally finishes in under half the time the PS3 does, this has been tested many times by many people with the same exact result. The X1 is offering a HDMI in which is a HUGE HUGE technological advance since you are basically allowed to plug in whatever you want ( i will be using it for my cable box). The new kinect looks fantastic i have used it at the tour and this darn thing can do alot of very impressive stuff, the camera its self is 1080P and has a HUGE view angle. Voice controlling, gesture controlling FROM anywhere on the console and instant switches, and amazing skype quality i mean these are all pretty impressive features. The cable features are pretty darn cool that i can just say go to HBO and it will do it idk these are all fantastic qualities. Lastly the thing that i truly love most is the snapping and instant switching feature. The snapping is just fantastic to be able to do ANYTHING you want on the side of whatever else you are doing how is that not amazing? Playing COD and waiting for your online lobby you can be playing Killer Instinct and switch instantly when it is ready so cool! I mean this is literally all my opinion but i definitely cannot be the only one who is thinking like this. Give me some responses please am i wrong?

honestly i've seen and heard their reasons and they are bad. all i hear is

1) becuase MS is evil/sucks/betrayed me/ spies on me etc

2) faith, faith the online will be better, faith they will have good games someday

3) pure delusion - they think they are getting a better product for cheaper

4) Brand loyalty

I mean as you see there are reasons, just not any good ones. I agree there is no logical reason to pick a PS4 over an X1 as of today except price.

Nope, you are preaching to the choir here. Well most of us. But I do agree, I haven't seen much in the way of news or announcements for PS4. Its been kinda quiet from them.

phew lol thank god because im like am i the only person here that sees this logically. I mean yes it is 100 dollars more i understand that, BUT for that 100$ you are getting an amazing peice of hardware that really makes the entire experience so much better. That peice of hardware gives you facial recognition, gesture, voice controlling, skype, twitch video implementation, kinect games, the extra TV features idk it definitely seems worth it to me. Also they announced the Xbox Fitness and the Kinect will play a major role in that for the people who will use it with the heart beat monitor.

@Camaro....Supposedly in one to two weeks, Sony is releasing what they are calling the  "Grand PS4 FAQ".

It is supposed to answer all remaining questions about the PS4.

We shall see.

It's just down to preference really.

I think with companies you are buying into an ethos and a philosophy.

My personal opinion is I could live without an Xbox One or a PS4 easily, they are a luxury and not a necessity.

I think what we have seen with Microsoft since E3 is hard work, Sony had the advantage of reacting to what Microsoft said and played the audience well.

The thing Playstation does well is play on the human element to people, like the 1995 advert, memory is a powerful instinct psychologically and chemically aswell, when those neurones aren't fired off in a while the feeling of when they do 6 years down the line are powerful emotions similar to reminiscing, like seeing somebody you haven't seen in a very long time could do that.

For that reason they are really hitting that 18-24 year old demographic of "for the gamers", like a "people's choice" type thing, as apple did "think different" in the 80s.

I think a lot of what is shown is an idealised vision of "what the games could look like" with the "tech demos" such as this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4j5xxi6cjjU

Which we will never see in real-time because well that's pre-rendered, although employing the latest motion capture technology you never know, people will see this demo and not give it a second glance and thing well, this is incredible technology although it will probably never reach these feats.

The one thing Microsoft are rubbish at is advertisement and PR, traditionally in the young days of the company, apple was the "cool artistic, flashy product" and Microsoft was for businesses and that kind of imagery no kind of rebranding will do.

Basically I think no matter what is done Playstation will always be the golden-child of consoles and even if it adds a million cool features, people will argue against it, although if it was integrated with Sonys devices it would be a great feature that would be innovative and a great product.

What I will say is that I wouldn't have this any other day, Microsoft needs Playstation, and Playstation needs Microsoft, they both push the envelope in two different directions, Microsoft is pushing what is a console in terms of functionality, input devices and integration with a server-back end, and Playstation is sticking to telling great stories, it's the culmination and context of these things which give it meaning.

good cause there are alot.

from MS we've seen alber and major active on forums/twitter/blogs, and IGN article of ask MS anything. a hot chips demo showing all the ins and outs tech demos on the cloud. 300k servers for XBL and free dedis for X1 games. more AAA exclsuives and form sony we've seen nothing

This is my take on it. Its like an opinion on what type of car you prefer to buy. Some people stick to one make such as Fords, or maybe you prefer only Honda. I prefer Xbox. I like the controller better, and enjoyed my time on the previous xbox consoles. We all have our own opinions.

true but the problem is its like ford and chevy both releasing new cars. say a ford escort and chevy cavilier. and chevy goes here are all our specs and ford says were not showing naything yet. and all the ford fans are like it has 10000 HP its amazing

I think the Kinect only bundle is the biggest complaint I continue to hear about the XB1..not so much the games,the hardware or anything else. The extra $100 price tag is a chunk for anyone like myself who doesn't and hasn't used the Kinect. I don't dislike the Kinect at all and actually think it's a sweet peripheral it's just that being 37 years old my days of flailing my arms and legs all over the place just isn't as fun as it used to be lol I believe if they had a Kinectless bundle the ball game would be a little different.
