Fede Leone It looks like a VCR? What year were you born? 2010? Clearly you don't know how a VCR looks like and since when the hell did it use a CD player?

Im laughing at sibbies statement about ps4 upscaling to 1080... no the patch is to make it true 1080.... compare ac4 bf4 and ghosts to the xbox1 side by side then tell me which versions look washed out... and how short draw distances are.....me personally good luck to what system you go for.... both launch lineups are mediocre at best

I wonder what would happen if the Xbox One doesn't have problems? Will Sony drones riot o something?

I'm getting both PS4 and Xbox One. They both play games. GAMES ! You fanboys are just pathetic. How the hell can you bitch over consoles ? Take you pick and play it ! "Someone else made a different choice than me" Lets whine about it !!!!!

Yeah the division comes out on both consoles just like destiny. If you haven't seen The Division hit up YouTube now and check out the E3 stuff and the gameplay video. Guaranteed you will be blown away!

Adam. I enjoy relaxing on my couch playing a game flicking between tv channels if I wanted a Gaming PC I would have got one a long time ago

I lol'ed hard when some accused the Xbox 1 of being a next gen joke. Pretty sure they are both jokes given their hardware is a year old already. Get whichever one you want but try not to make yourself look stupid being a consoles/tech companies #1 hype man. If you want to argue hardware and specs, you are in the wrong realm entirely.

Fede Leone it's muppets like you that make PS4 players look stupid. Please tell me how Feroza is 720p. And please tell me how you did/do not know that PS4 plays Ghosts and AC4 at 720p. You need to download a patch to UPSCALE them to 1080p. I'm amazed at how stupid PS4 fanboys are. They can't even use google to check to see if their info is correct before running their mouth. And Duncan Leckey I agree Titanfall, Destiny and The Division are going to be fantastic. Both consoles have some fantastic games coming out next year, which is when is will also get my PS4. But for the time being I'm sticking with my xbox one. I just wish the misguided, uneducated plebs on both sides would realise that neither console will be perfect, especially at launch. But I am just tired of morons (right now the PS4 players) carrying on about the Xbox One when it's not even released, and carrying on with information that isn't even true! The whole "720p" thing is just getting tired and shows that PS fanboys have no idea what they are even talking about!

In the long run. Ps4 has a better graphics card. I have been with Xbox since the 1st system I have now pre ordered the ps4 can't bloody wait

Also no matter how much it MIGHT (I'm in limbo mode) suck. Titanfall will be the killer app the the system. no matter what people think of the Xbox One it's games like Titanfall and Destiny that will make it sell.

To be honest i'm sick of these wars with pc,ps4 and xbox one. Just play what one you like best.

Well you're fool if you think the Xbox one won't have problems when it launches. Every system has problems.

I love how people judge a console that isn't even released yet. Proves how immature they can be.

Duncan Leckey you must be reading different reviews to me, with games like Killzone barely scoring a 7/10 with all it's glorious 1080p 60fpd compared to DR3 which is 720p scoring the same and even getting 9/10 by people like destructoid. Yes, PS4 maybe doing ok. But it's not the second coming of the messiah like predicted! Xbox one has only 2 days til launch, so don't start claiming PS4 is the victor yet.

Duncan Leckey

PS4 is actually doing extremely well it sold 1 Million Platforms in 24 hours
