Yep this goes without saying but its good that outlets are reporting on how much better the xbox is as a multimedia device. Discuss. BUT BUT THE PAYWALL isn't enough of an argument and I agree, if you want the best multimedia box you go with XBAWX.. If you bring up games, well Titanfall, halo 5, sunset overdrive, ryse, forza 5, Kinect sports rivals, killer instinct, dead rising 3, d4, etc blow away Sonys box of indies and last showing 7.5 infamous, and generic Killzone. so yeah we know which system has the better games so keep it at multimedia baby

That was pretty obvious, and when Windows 8 apps get ported over it will do even more.

Not surprising, the capabilities of the XOne OS are above and beyond what the PS3.5 can do.

are you really holding off your preorder? I was thinking the same but I still kept the order. you will end up paying 700 for the system on ebay because it wont be readily avail and you will want it so bad. day 1

What if you dont care about multi media compatibilities like myself?

also obligatory:

Have to go with EDGE on this one and thus SDC. Thank you Sony.

#6 Posted by MlauTheDaft (3017 posts) -

No offense, but I'd prefer a smaller gaming console and an entirely seperate multimedia box....

If I really wanted an all in one solution, I'd drill some holes and draw a cable or set up my rPi, which is currently collecting dust anyway.

@Heil68: since then they changed their tune. Maybe because of lack of games on ps4 sorry brah

#8 Edited by Heil68 (42679 posts) -

The article states:

PS4 may have a reduced offering when it comes to media content, but what it does have will be open to all and additive to its primary focus: games.

That's all I ever asked for.

Also :If you want a multimedia box and don’t mind Kinect’s(lol) insidious side..LMAO

Well that makes you a liar (Shocker.)
For someone who does not care about it you sure as fuck are on the internet enough instead of playing games.

But it is behind a pay wall,after you pay for it,it is better,the xbox one was build to be a TV tunner for cable box,so yeah it is better at that,sadly that is also what makes it an inferior gaming platform.

While I agree with them, didn't Edge earlier in the summer tell everyone to buy a PS4? They tend to be a bit on the tabloid style in recent months. Having said that, the claim is true. The paywall argument is a joke, lol. If I buy Xbox its cause I want to play multiplayer games and live is required. Why would I care whats behind the paywall? I wouldn't buy the system just to watch netflix and stream movies when a number of cheap devices, my laptop, and my TV can already do that. It just makes no sense to me. There is zero reason to buy a Xbox if you don't want Live.

yes then they came out with an article that said that xbox is now a serious contender and was pro xbawx and then sonygaf started saying it was paid off. and now its kinda leaning towards xbawx and now that's why you see tormentos and sonygaf say they are paid off. lol

You Lems do realize TitanFall is going to get most of its sales on 360 right? Doesn't help the XO very much.

Why brag about having to own multiple devices when someone has a device that plays and does everything they want? At least think before you open your mouth and make yourself look lost.

Is not bragging is showing you a nice little point,i own a 360,i own a PC so why would i care about Titanfall on xbox one.?

The game is not exclusive by any means,and when you play that card you certainly look stupid because for the launch of the PS4 there are several games that are not on xbox one while they are on PC,and you people dismiss them as been on PC,so once again why should i care i can play titanfall without buying and xbox one,hell the game was put on 360 as a fail safe for profits..lol

I didn't play the exclusive card. So I don't know what the fuck you are talking about. And why would they fail safe the game putting it on the 360 when it is on THE FUCKING PC??????

#31 Edited by Chutebox (36210 posts) -

Don't really care for that. I just want a box that will play games and movies. PS4 will offer the best of both worlds, including better hardware for 100 less. Easy decision for me. X1 good for those looking for all that in a console though.

This is the first post in months I have seen from anyone in this forum on their console of choice this holiday. Why is this so hard for people?

Yeah it's one reason I am getting the X1 first. I am good with ps3/360 graphics so that isn't selling me a new console. But all the one does, especially if you are in the windows 8 ecosystem, is a great hub for your place. I look forward to it and DR3, forza 5, Hopefully Ryse.

Yeah X1 has zero games

well compare game library this gen to know what will happen next one, ps4 getting probably 10's and gotys again, and now with the multiplatform advantage being so big, well, dont really see how can xbox compare to ps4 in terms of gaming, i guess if i didnt already have a gaming pc, laptop and even my effin blu ray with netflix and all that multimedia crap ready to go. The only game x360 got this year was crappy gears of war while ps3 got tales of xillia, graces, god of war ascension, beynd two souls and more importantly last of us.

What happened last gen has no baring on this gen. Both companies will learn lessons. PS3 had nothing for at the beginning for years Xbox 360 had nothing at the end. This generation will be completely different. Microsoft know how important 1st party is and have spent big to the point where they have more than Sony.

#44 Edited by Netherscourge (16327 posts) -

I agree, if you want a multimedia box, get a XB1. You can snap between Netflix, HBO, 720upscaled/30fps/jaggy games and Major Nelson just by waving your hand.

If you want native 1080p/60fps gaming with Anti-Aliasing and save $100 in the process, get a PS4.

Finally, we agree on something!

#45 Posted by princeofshapeir (13604 posts) -

Is it any surprise that the box which promotes multimedia over gaming does it better than the gaming-focused PS4?

If you can justify $100 more for a console that can't render games in 1080p but can switch seamlessly to Food Network in HD, XB1 is for you.

when your neurones get the ability to make a comment that doesnt sound like a butthurt fanboy maybe i will care enough to not dismiss it, right now microsoft could throw you a turd and you'd love it, making your opinion pretty much garbage, sorry to hurt your feelings brah.

Makes it kinda embarrassing then that the jack of all trades XOne is even doing gaming better than the supposedly gaming-focused Sony.

If you believe that then you're in for a huge surprise. MS will insure every single TV add has Xbox One on it. I doubt outside of a bottom of the screen flash you'll even see there's a 360 version or PC. They certainly won't do any TV ads for them. PC gamers are always in the know and don't even need TV ads, lol. The only footage you will see in ads and TV commercials will be the Xbox One version.

I love how Sony Fan hangs on to first impressions at E3. Hey Sony Fan no one is saying this now that games, features, and actual play time has been demonstrated.

I am amazed we have not heard any 1.8tflops or 50% more power talk but still here E3 talk.

Also anyone that is actually want to game in 2013 and 2014 will be gaming on the system with actual games and not just Bloom/Blur/FogZone. It is funny that The One is the best gaming console and best multimedia box around.
