PS4 looks boring to me.
I play games watch movies and my wife and kids love the old kinect. The only thing PS4 has going for it is the fact its a "hardcore" games console. Im not of the age or disposition were being a "hardcore" gamer even means anything to me any more. I dont want to be one, I dont even have time to be one. What I do want is a system in my living room that seamlessly switches between all of my entertainment something for my whole family. I can play games while my wife is elsewhere, then when she comes back in the room I can instantly switch back to watching Netflix.
I know Sony fanboys like to think this gen is going to be terribly one sided. Gotta remember us game forum dwellers are the minority, theres a whole world out there....and believe it or not "hardcore" gamers are a very small but very vocal sector of it. The performance gap between the consoles is so marginal that the only people who will care enough about it are the Hardcore sub sector. Id trade minor graphical performance for the benefits of the X1 any day. I already own a PS3 the PS4 is just an upgrade. Maybe they will return with something new and interesting with the PS5 an peak my interest again.
Really the PS4 also has netflix and guess what you don't have to pay a second fee to use it,and netflix on PS3 was actually superior quality wise to the xbox 360 version,and was free of a paywall.
Yeah that is why the PS4 is beating the xbox one in pre-orders because normal people can't make a good choice only forum dwellers can,what benefits.? weaker hardware more expensive everything locked away under a pay wall.?
If there is a console that should give all features free if the xbox one,is $100 more while been weaker,and live gold doesn't have games like PSN+ in any way,yet again it is the PS4 the one with all the features open,you can't even record your game if you don't pay for xbox live,i wonder if saving your game will also be behind a damn pay wall,MS outdated policies are a joke and is the reason why people complained.
