@Suppaman100: I told you, you cant throw facts at me all you like but im not impressed with more powerful, the PS3 was "more powerful" and it translated into nothing particularly tangible. Im buying the Xbox for myself my wife and my daughter because the console has elements which appeal to all of us in ways the PS4 cannot compete.
I appreciate you taking the time to "counter" my points but unfortunately its just a case of personal preference. The X1 suits my needs better. I totally get why a "hardcore gamer" would turn to the PS4. Its offers those extra flops and its cheaper....I get that. But its meaningless to me. I want the fantastic online service Im already subscribed too. I love Xbox music. I love Netflix and numerous other apps. I actually like the kinect. My daughter and wife love it. It also looks like it might see more decent integration into games in the next gen which I am excited for. The PS4 just doesnt interest me in the same way. I am extremely glad Sony improved their controller however and I think thats going to be very favourable for them.
I actually think the X1 launch up is pretty strong but again its a matter of opinion.
Im not a 360 only gamer. I play the seven aforementioned PS3 titles. I may choose to purchase the PS4 in the future if it starts to offer products and services that are not avaliable on the X1 but until that time I do not see much point.
I understand where you are coming from. I look at the launch from a different perspective, the perspective of someone without any preferences, someone with a "blank slate". And from that perspective it's obvious that PS4 is superior because of the cheaper price and more powerful hardware.
Now your point of view is that of someone with a history, someone who prefers Xbox games and services.
So the difference is that I view the launch from an objective standpoint and you look at it from a subjective standpoint.
But now answer my question, my friend. What is you conclusion, if you look at the launch with an objective point of view. (objective meaning looking at facts, btw I don't want to insult your intelligence but there are many uneducated people on SW who do not know the difference)
So which one is the best PS4 or the Xone, objectively?
The one that my whole family would enjoy. The X1.
Like I said 5 years ago if I was a single hardcore gamer I probably would have gone with the Playstation because raw power appealed to me and I was a student so $100 dollars would have been a big selling point also.
But now that £70 isnt an issue, and I am getting an all in one entertainment centre my whole family can benefit from.
