Xbox live $60.00 a year PSN $50.00  Live comes with advertising and commercials while PSN does not.  PSN allows netflix,... any other service with out paying for PSN, while not so for LIVE.  

The XB1 is a good console its just that Microsoft is not the best company to run it.  my Xb360 is good, though I never bought anything other than the console. and 1 extra controller (also 2 1TB hods) 

On PS3 I bought a logitech wheel, a 1TB HDD, 2 controllers. fighting sticks, and flight stick.

The only reason the PS4 is winning the vote is because the Ponies have no good games to play because they are still "Waiting For Greatness"". Mean while all the Xbox One owners are having . tons of fun playing good games and playing around with all the great features the Xbox One has to offer.

PS3 to Xbox One, world of difference especially online, faster downloads on Xbox Live and haven't lost connection to a single game

so I am watching 2 people walking around in the dark, pulling out galaxy z plus 3 whatevers, whilst watch the video on a fake version of the same phone. Question; why am I thinking of Doritos right now?

  I have a pc that i built thats a little more powerful than both consoles combined. I have it in my office, and hooked up to my hdtv in my bedroom where i boot games to and play with a controller from my couch. i get the graphics and the comfort so i dont have a stake in the fan-boyism. looking at both consoles from a hardware perspective, the xb1 has 8 gigs of much slower ddr3 ram where the ps4 has the same of much faster gddr5, the processor on the xb1 is .2 ghz slower across all eight cores, which adds up (expecially when the xb1 clock speed is only 1.6 ghz to begin with), and the gpu on the ps4 is capable of 4 times the data throughput of what the xb1 is capable of from what i've read (even though they both are from AMD, they use very different architecture). Anedon the software side, the xb1 has to run 3 different virtual machines, one for games, one for apps, and the other to allocate resources between the two, when it doesnt even have as many resources as the ps4 to begin with. 2 vitual machines cant just share resources like ram as easily as 2 applicaitons on the same OS can, hence the need for the third vm, which is saving how much for itsself? And that still is nowhere near as efficient. And on top of everything else, the kinnect creates a 3d simlutation of your game space at all times, never turning off, constantly running facial recognition software, and voice recognition software while being extremely easy to hack... just saying... if i get a console, its going to be a ps4... For now im content with playing assassins creed 4 at 60fps with more visual flare than either next gen console is capable of. If i want a Ryse experience, ill pickup a Razor Hydra and Occulus Rift.

X1 has a TV app. PS4 has the best hardware and will have the best lineup of exclusive games this gen. PS4 is slick, fast, crisp, and all about games. X1 boasts TV. We already have TV. A console is about playing games!!!

PS4 built to play games, designed to play games, best hardware for games, & made by Sony for gamers the Sony way. 

Sony for the gamers doesn't try DRM, mandatory camera, or stop renting. Shame on MS!

Both 8 gig.

Both AMD.

Is there really anything between them lol.

Im sticking to my pc at least for another 12 months until problems are sorted out.

they say buy a ps4 if you're  a hardcore gamer..  that doesn't even make since.  I didn't see any hardcore games available.  I forgot about Knack.... lol!! that's hardcore to the bone!!

at the end of the day you guys talk about games then vote for a system without games... really!! 

rodd76dog
rodd76dog

the reason ps4 is winning this vote thing is because xbox owners are playing games.... ps owners get on websites all day to justify their purchase.... That's whats crazy... buying a system with no good games is beyond me..  stop fanboying and open your eyes and get an xbox.  more games more everything,  a no brainer for me....

Is Ryse and Killer Instinct run on 1080p ? I am asking to know if XBO games are going to be 1080p or less?

Xbox one....greater potential and greater gaming experiences. KI, Forza 5, ryse, titanfall(future), DR3, fighter within, Kinect sports rival....enuff said.

PS4.....less potential, lame launch lineup, lame Kinect eye thingamajig copycat, okay controller; never as good as Xbox's...and again; which I remind us all, "sony told us it was all about the games, and the PS4 is a pure game machine!" Well sony where is this game machine that actually has some decent games? KILLBORE...... please!!!

@UNCStriker88 I have not been on Xbox live for a while now will go to a friends house and cheek it out but my PS4 has bee very fast and no problems at all online. my network is not very fast but still good enough to play multiples on war frame.  DC online works well also.  What kind of imperial evidence do you have or is it just what you think??

@merc410 

I agree with most of your comment, but the X1 CPU is 1.75 GHz, not 1.6GHz. Not that it makes much difference, just that your specs are wrong.

BTW, GDDR5 is faster with higher latency. Overall it is faster, but I wouldn't say it is much faster (just so you know, GDDR5 is based on the DDR3 spec).

PC's will always be the graphical kings, but have fallen into obscurity in the social world. The only way you counter that is if all of your friends happen to game on PC. The problem is that PC's are outrageously expensive and most of my friends are broke and play consoles. We all plan on using our 360's until there just aren't any games left to play, so I do not plan on buying either of the new ones.

I honestly was hoping both be a lot more powerful this go around. My pc is still waiting to break a sweat. Its been over a year since my last upgrade too :/ (only $150 after 2 years since my previous upgrade). Now would be the time to move to pc gaming guys, the hardware drops in price year after year faster than it ever used to.

@clr84651 All X1 boast is tv? LOL I guess you guys need to lie to yourself to sleep at night. Got my X1 thursday night and am amazed at the new options and features this thing can do. I spent the last 3 days just learning all the different ways i can interact with it (phone, tablet, motion, voice, etc) The PS4's only feature that the X1 doesnt have is streaming to the vita. 

Kinda like you said, the PS4 is ONLY about games; hence: FAR less features.

rolla020980

@clr84651 

Will have the best lineup? Let me have a look at this crystal ball of yours.

We have no idea who will have the best games and, like last gen, chances are the best ones will be multiplatform and look indistinguishable on both (you remember the side-by-side PS3 v 360 articles on GS that had the screen zoomed in to one tiny spot, right?).

rolla020980

@clr84651 

What ?!?!?!?!? Could you be more ignorant?

Sony - PS4 designed to play games and games only. I have nothing against this if this is what you want. I prefer a device that will remove some clutter from my living room with an equal gaming experience. Come on people, the next gen will be much like the current gen. Most games look the same no matter what you play it on. The hardware is a moot point unless you are building a PC.

Sony has DRM. The same DRM that the X1 has. Rent a game and try to copy it and then try to play the copied game. Go ahead, try it.

The X1 has a camera. So what? Don't want it, don't buy it.

Stop renting? You can most definitely rent games on the X1.I haven't seen any rentals for either available near me, but that doesn't mean renting is forbidden. What are you referring to here?

It is clear to me that you are a fanboy and have no open mind whatsoever. I wish you the best on a PS4 and hope you enjoy yourself as I am sure you will. I have nothing against either console and encourage people to play the one they enjoy. Leave everyone else alone.

Agreed, but I am sticking to my 360 as my PC is in shambles right now :(

@rodd76dog 

Because PS4 doesn't have a TV app and other non gamer apps like X1. PS4 has the best hardware and it's built to maximize gaming, while X1 shares it's resources with other things. That reduces memory and CPU for gaming. While PS4 has better RAM and 150% higher GPU and it's all focused on the games. 

clr84651

@rodd76dog 

You do understand that Sony has tons of games in development. Uncharted 4, Gran Tourismo 7, and a whole lot more. And since when did the X1 have so many games. What a racer Forza?! Everyone loves KZ SF on PS4. A much higher percentage of gamers like shooters than racers. PS4 will have 3-1 exclusive titles vs X1.

Then why were the polls just after both consoles were announced so heavily in favor of PS4 when neither console was out?!

Lol! "Stop fanboying and open ur eyes and get an xbox" just slightly contradictory. Open your eyes neither systems launch lineup can justify me going out and spending this kind of money on a new system

@GunEye more pixels means drop in framerate, I think its much more noticeable when your screen freezes than some pixels

Xbox one games can and WILL run at 1080p. Forza 5 does. It's up to the developer to pick and choose. One devs have the consoles for a while games will look and run much better.

@shiningforce1 

You make a good point. Microsoft was focusing on all aspects, like Kinect and TV integration, yet still managed to release some decent launch games. Sony was focusing in on games only and the launch was pretty meh.

I disagree with your controller comment. I prefer the XBOX controller, but in this category I have always taken the stance to each his own. The PS3 controller was just too small for me, but might be comfortable to someone else.

@Ravenlore_basic well if you r experiencing no problems with online then you r part of a very small group that probly just hasn't been online much because it had been widely publicized in the past week.  Given that I have used PSN for the past several years, I can tell a distinct and immediately difference in the speed at which matches are found and joined, furthermore downloading large files such as entire games are significantly faster when coming from XBL versus PSN.  Just my direct experience with a decent internet connection

merc410

@rolla020980 @merc410 latency in regards to RAM speeds is relative. its only one factor of many and its heavily dependant on the clock speeds in determining its actual effectual value when performing. In any GPU i've ever researched on my pc enthusiast days gddr5 has been exponentially faster than the same card with ddr3. thanks for the corection on the clock speed though; when the speeds are low low to begin with per core .2 ghz can make a noticeable difference in framerate. i will say the xb1 looks like a brilliant entertainment device, as opposed to the ps4 which is definitely a gaming device. I'm a huge single player fan. I liken them to interactive novels

@noladem504 @clr84651 the 'one' isn't set up for tv in my country; or the sport i pay attention to; or the games i want to play. the voice recognition happens, when you want it to, 75% of the time (according to ign, gamespot, and kotaku) and the menu related motion controls (no real games to use it with) are equally inacurate, if not worse. i think my ps3 is better; my ps4 definitely is.

@rolla020980 @clr84651What another dumbass fanboy comment. Please explain to me what the PS4 can do that the X1 cant?....(birds chirping)

The X1 can do everything the PS can do PLUS a shitload more. Now that i have the X1 i totally understand why they made the kinect mandatory. It IS part of the interface. 

This machine basically just turned my television into a giant HD tablet. I use my phone, tablet, PC, motion and voice commands to control it making the controller only mandatory for video games. You idiots are complaining that the X1 has MORE features than PS4..How does that work.

And the whole 'TV' thing is hilarious. I dont have cable tv so instead i utilized this HDMI in port (which turned out to be an AWESOME idea btw) to hook my 360 into it so i can now play my 360 games with all the new features and functionality that comes with the X1 (snap, switching seamlessly, etc).

You are talking about PS4 as if its somehow superior or even better for gaming? Please explain. Being the X1 has most of the exact same games but with more ways to interact with them. After playing on both consoles it is very obvious to me now why one is $100 more than the other. 

This great and wonderful hardware differences you speak of are very minute...you should probably research this before making an ass of yourself. 

And btw...the ONLY feature i have seen the PS has that the X1 doesnt is streaming to vita. Have fun with that.

@clr84651 @rodd76dog Where did you get your information? LOL! Talk about ass backwards. The X1 only uses 3GB of its memory for its OS's leaving 5Gb for gaming while the PS uses 3.5 GB for its OS and leaves only 4.5 for Gaming. Do your research. And also, how stupid do you have to be to say the X1 is not for "hardcore" gamers simply because it has MORE features than PS4? What a dumbass comment.

@clr84651 @rodd76dog 

Consoles, unlike PC's, are designed as a complete system. The PS4 and X1 have a very similar architecture, but there are differences in them. Saying the PS4 has faster memory and a better GPU are all well and good, but none of it matters. We learned that on the last gen. The multiplatform games looked the same and the exclusives were only marginally better graphically. There were no standout games and the best games on the new gen don't even come close to Crysis (a 6 year old PC game).

If all you care about are graphics and a strong system, buy a PC. If you want a good console, buy a PS4 or an X1, whichever interests you. Quit trolling.

So you say Sony is developing GT7, then say, "What a racer Forza?! "

I haven't seen such a bad troll on here in a while and that counts MS, Sony, and Nintendo trolls.

@UltimateBastard makes sense, the only haters I see around here seem to be the PS4 fans trying to hate on Xbox One, never see the other way around...interesting

@LJNkickstarter @GunEye upscaled to 1080p. If it was a choice  between native 1080p or smooth animation and no processing issues I would rather the game be native 720p but I guess Sony wants to try 1080p with bad animation and frame drops. Guess what not all PS4 games will be native 1080p.

@UNCStriker88 @Ravenlore_basic i can't tell the difference here in nz.. i went with ps4, 'cause all that 'extra media funtionality' that the xbox one is supposed to have, hasn't eventuated outside of the us.. plus the ms 180, and not being able to achieve 1080p natively on comparitive games..

@UNCStriker88 @UltimateBastard very true. The hating on here is very one sided. You mostly only see it coming from Xbox fans when they are being forced to defend themselves. Funny that is

@megakick Where is your proof that all 1080p PS4 games have framerate drops. COD Ghosts is the only one I know of. AC4 and BF4 run with a higher framerate AND resolution on PS4. Go to digital foundry for details. Nice try though
