    Both systems have been revealed, what are your thoughts concerns and opinions? Ive always been a Playstation player and never really like the Xbox even though I give it a fair shake as far as how I feel about it ( meaning I point out both good and bad about both ) but at this point I find it hard to see a lot of good with the X1. Seems as though it is moving away from a gaming console and more into a media hub while leaving the core gamers behind and the fact that you cannot share games with friends is crap. Not to keen on how it looks but the PS4 has yet to be seen either. We will find out more about both in the next few weeks when E3 hits.

    I don't like the upload only gaming feature and if I bring that game to a buddy he has to pay for it to upload it also.. As if..

    That is total BS. Also the fact that when a game is traded in it has to go to a store that is linked into the M$ system so that they can scrub the game from their servers and when it is resold they are also now getting a cut. So I'm sure the retailers are not going to take a hit on profit so that means the price of used games will be higher and no longer can you just sell a game online when your done w/ it.

    Well I would wait until at least E3 before deciding. I know Im deff getting a PS4 it was never even an after thought for me. Like I said there are a lot of rumors and M$ has done a crappy job of explaining a lot of this stuff so E3 is going to tell a lot

    Once again, Sony is producing a far superior system.

    haha.

    I'll admit I'll be a bit more biased to the PS4 in this thread but only b/c I think its the better system and Ive always like the exclusive games more. The rants I'm hearing about the X1 is not from PS fanboys they are ligament gripes. Here are two of the funnier video's Ive seen...well funny if you dont plan on getting an X1. ( oh and I'm trying to start the trend of calling it the X1 so any royalties can be sent directly to me)

    also find it ironic that the X1 now comes with a blu ray player and which blu ray is owned by Sony lol. Granted they had no choice unless every game was going to be 4 disc of DVD but talk about having to eat crow. But M$ being as rich as they are I'm sure they dont mind paying the royalties.

    The Blu Ray thing was pretty funny. Sony pretty much buried the competing (and vastly inferior) HD-DVD with their media catalog purchases and then using the PS3 as a trojan horse of sorts.

    It was a very smart strategy by Sony. For quite awhile the PS3 was the cheapest stand alone blu ray player and many people bought it for that reason and on top of that not only did the quickly defeat HD DVD they also made it so the competition's next gen console was going to have to use it b/c of its storage capacity and the fact that games have gotten so much bigger (disc space wise ) It really backed M$ into a corner. You cant call it a next gen console while it used a DVD drive yet the only other option is to use Sonys Blu Ray Technology.

    These guys hit the nail on the head as well ( Video at the bottom )

    Well Ive beat up on the X1 enough for one day I just agree with pretty much the common consensus that the reveal was a flop b/c the new system has seemed to have turned more into an entertainment media hub more so then a gaming console. E3 will show a lot more but not a good first impression IMO. With that I would like to focus more on what I plan on getting for the PS4. Watch Dogs is high on my list and I would like to get it w/ the system. There are some other great release games coming out as well.
