In forza while I'm designing a car I can snap art to the sde to look at while I work. Being able to jump back to the Achievements I'm working on and back to the game seamlessly. The TV thing is also nice, I can catch up on sports or if a football game is going south and I just want to play Battlefield I can do so and not miss the game. The point is that this is games+ not just games.

You do realize changes were made after E3 right? Also, there are plenty of people I've seen who have said the were happier with an xb1.

It's not my opinion, it's fact. There's technological evidence that my statement is true

What do these other features have to do with playing the game? I'm not hating. Just sayin', both consoles play games and thats all that really matters to me.

Enlighten me, what do these other features have to do with playing a game?

All fanboys refuse to acknowledge the other side. Either way, facts are irrelevant. If you like the games on a console, you get that console.

Actually, if you say facts, you aren't really a fanboy. That is, unless you refuse to acknowledge the other side.

"Don't bash something if you never tried it" Most people don't seem to understand this simple concept.

I have an xbox one and its great. I would wait for more games to come out. I found myself bored and playing xbox 360 again. I think the snapping feature is great. I use to think it would be a waste but once i started useing it, it became somthing i used a lot. Anyone who says its worthless does not own one or has never used it. Don't bash somthing if you have never tried it. Also titanfall is a good game coming out this year Trevor Merrill

Lol yeah sure you are. Telling yourself to sell a console that you don't like or have for another console.

By the way, if a fanboy is somebody that actually pays attention to technology and loves a company because it has been my console of choice since I was 6 because of how great they are then yes, I'm a fanboy.

From what I've heard, Dead Rising 3 is an amazing game but either way, its better to wait also because there are barely any games both consoles.

I for one am not buying either console until at least next summer, the launch titles on both platforms are pretty damn disappointing for the most part. Wait for the good games to come out, then at least your console purchase would be worth it.

If its your OPINION, then don't tell me to buy a ps4. I'll make my own choice without biased fanboyism.

Killzone Shadowfall, 60 fps in 1080p. Enough said.

rotfl nothing good is coming to Xbone for the next year that isn't coming to PC or PS4. Playstation, Steam and Nintendo have better exclusives for at least the next year, making the X1 a useless purchase for the next 12 months.

I miss when people would buy consoles for the games, not their features or price.

Telling people to go buy a ps4. Yeah you are worrying about everyone else.

Matt Stringer

I don't have one yet, I'm not worrying about everyone else

Or you could go play your own ps4 instead of worrying about everyone else.

Only Sony fanboys consider a lack of features a benefit.

The real guide Sell your ps 4 Buy an Xbox one or Wii u as these systems actually have good games on and coming to them Happy gaming if you chose ps4 happy trolling till a decent game hits it in about 5 to 8 years

I know, I dont know why people still calling it next gen.. And Ps3 and XBox 360 for me are still current. Games are still coming out on it.
