So... PS4 or Xbox One?

Go for your life Smiley
For the record, I'm liking the sound of the PS4 a lot more at the moment but I won't be getting either on release day. Might get a PS3 though if the price drops enough Cheesy

PS4 out of principle - I won't be blackmailed into having to buy brand new games or register them with Micro$oft if I want to play them etc.
Saw a funny video earlier ....

Like they say it depends on what you're after....a media centre that plays games or a gaming console Undecided

Re: So... PS4 or Xbox One?

I have an XBox 360 slim thing by the way and a PS3.
The XBox is mainly hogged by my stepson - he uses it for his games. The PS3 was given to me a couple of months ago by my brother-in-law when he came over from France. Both USB ports were broken so I soldered a USB extension cable onto the motherboard, bought a controller to test it worked (which it did), put it under the stairs and it's been there ever since  Grin

PS4. Especially if Don Mattrick advises prospective Xbox One customers without internet to get a 360 instead.

Neither, just my PC Cool
Edit: If I had to pick one though, Microsoft wouldn't even be on the list.

Re: So... PS4 or Xbox One?

I don't really play games any more - I used to back in the Amiga days, but since I work on PC's all day I can't really be bothered to get into them.
Speaking to a friend that does, he's an XBox defector too. Told me he's already pre-ordered a PS4 as he doesn't want to put up with the DRM restrictions, which to me sound well OTT.
Surprised they don't make the games work like coin-ops - you can play for so long per day until you pay per minute. Oh hang on, I think iPhone games have already beaten them to that Grin

Re: So... PS4 or Xbox One?

I stuck with Microsoft even after they abandoned the xbox when the 360 came out. Now the new xbox Isnt even backward compatible with the collection I've collected over the years? That with loads of other reasons that I cant be bothered typing about Is why I am cross and wont be getting the new xbox.
Don't know If I can switch to the PS4 either as I've not played any previous games on the Sony console so not sure If I can just jump straight In to the likes of Killzone or God of war?Huh
Wii U most probably. That Is where the fun ls to be had and that Is why I started gaming from back In the 80's anyway. For the fun factor. Not for a series of FPS on a console that requires stoopid Kinect and calling home every 24HRS.

They've still got work to do if they want to convince everyone, that alone won't cut it for me. Take away Kinect and we'll talk  Cheesy
