After purchasing three Xbox ones for myself and 2 of my sons. I find the FORCED $25 fleecing for a headset adapter as the final straw. Being forced to have the "USELESS" Kinect that only benefits the NSA/FBI/CIA and police state government/NWO agenda. And Microsoft for financial reasons. The forcing of us to pay $25 more to use my $300 state of the art headset 3 mos AFTER the roll out of what is to be the next step of gaming is nothing short of corporate greed. Of consumer gouging. I say screw Microsoft and xbox. For the record I recommend anyone looking to purchase a "NextGen" Console that is on the fence to buy the Sony. And to all Software developers who decide to take the devil's deal and sign an exclusive with Microsoft: Enjoy what they gave you. No one will play it.

M$'s money grubbing ways will cost them. 


PC FTW though if you are going to do the console thing, PS4. Just know, what you dont spend on PC components, you will spend on the games...

I can pretty much guarantee that adapter costs them less than $2 to have manufactured. No thanks, I'm done with the days of getting nickle dimed to death with Xbox accessories. Xbox can KMA and I'll stick with my PS4

Look the girl is cute but these videos are a pointless attempt to increase page activity.  All she does is regurgitate headlines so what is the point of the show?  She never gives her own opinion or take on anything and continually asks for comments to be made but is there any follow up on her own part to these comments?  No.  Either give us someone a little more buxom to look at or make the content actually interesting.

100 games this year for ps4, well hopefully most aren't indie games. Microsoft is really trying to make us hate the xbone, $25 to use off brand headsets, that's some BS. Only good vita news is more games, I wish they would bring more imports from japan for it to states.

100 games in 1st year? Damn it. I was hoping the over-saturation of the games market would decrease with the new generation...looks like we're still gonna have piles of useless games cases and discs everywhere for all the shitty games that will come out at a ratio of 10:1 decent game.

Most of PS4 games are indie garbage.

out of that 100 new games 95% will be multiplatforms, indies, and arcade games so far Sony has 2 AAA exclusive titles worth playing coming this year compared to MS's 5 from what i can think of Sony need to seriously up there game and get more games released.

I'm calling BS on the 100 games. The only way sony pulls this off is if they port a load of ps3 psn titles. Like they did with zen pinball. And no I'm not an xbox fanboy, I'm a ps4 owner waiting on something new to play.

Sony will deliver games but I would be sceptical as to whether they were worth getting out of bed for. still angry that sony and MS dissed my Turtle beach's this is mind control.. oh and Jess she soooooo sweet...

Hello everyone, great community....much love Jess for hosting those horrific NEWS. It took me four years before i could own my first xbox then bought a ps3, both in 2010.


And i was thrilled. why because it took that long before real games were released and i believe it will take another 4 years before developers are able to utilize these new consoles full potential.


 so i am not upset at Sony or Microsoft or at developers. truth, video games takes time, so i'll wait and save my money until that day, that very day gamestop announces a true breath taking, mind blowing, heart pumping, blood rushing video game.   


oh yea!

I have no doubt that Sony and other studios will deliver games, but what about Utube, video and audio files that are playable on PS4 from a USB. Also, the browser video support is lacking. If you build something, don't give me incremental updates. Fix please.

A hundred games? I only counted like 15 on game websites. Where are they getting their numbers from?

Oh good the 3 people that bought the PSvita can buy the slim.Dam nthat thing is garbage and has cost sony over 2 billion loss.100 PS4 games this year yet there are not but a few listed through gamestop and anywhere else you look.I already see the same BS sony pulled with the PS3 back in 2007 went from like 80 games down to 40.Why would anyone buy a headset for the X1?You have the wired mice that comes with it plus kinect which is awesome to chat on

I never trust Microsoft on gaming since all my three 360s broke down. Those damned RROD. My fat PS3 still alive and kicking 5 years already.

Looking forward to Watch Dogs for PS4. I'll get an XBox One when my 360 becomes obsolete.

any chance of me getting a XB1 is only if they release a new model.

No one is forcing you to buy the adapter, or the xbox one... Playstation owners. Stop trashing the xbox one and move on with your life.

So does PS4 just allow any headset to work with it? it doesn't have a special plug for the PS4?

@Jag-T1000 Perhaps if you learn to read, you'll see that they said 100 games COMING IN 2014.

@shadow1384 Sorry, but nuh-uh. No more Gears, the series is great, the characters are charismatic, and the story is very well written. But it's over. Gears 3 finished the story and the books are enough complement. So no more milking it.

@joe_shickler : 

XBone DESERVES trashing, until MS offer a decent gaming console which is value for money and without that piece of junk Kinect, which no one but the secret services want to have.

I will never understand how brand loyalty can lead people to still defend MS after they have told so many LIES about non working Xbone functions, and being caught shafting their customers every second day?

Boy, if you could only bottle that kind of blind obedience you would be richer than Coca Cola.

@joe_shickler  Oh and I'm not a fanboy, I am very happy with my 360 and pc for gaming and communicating with people. 

WITHOUT needing to pay for X box live to do it!

@Fatalv  I was never on Microsoft's nuts. I bought the Xbox One for it's exclusives and i like the idea of an all around media machine. I do like the fact that the PS4 is more of complete gaming machine, but i love the multimedia package that microsoft is offering... i know, i know, kill me right? Plus, most of my friends got the Xbox One, and i wanted to keep in touch with them (I used to live in Hawaii and i moved so this is a neat way of communicating and having a good laugh at some gameplay with each other) :).

@smackdowner360 Yeah, imagine like this, your favourite toy as a kid, someone else says he's going to ram it in the wall, but it's OK as long as you don't look right? It's not that simple, the next game, unless they decide to make the Pendulum Wars and with the help of Karen Traviss, will be ridiculous, and then the name of the whole franchise will become a joke. Just look at Assassin's Creed, they had such potential for a great story, suddenly they're making "Pirates of the Caribbean" with the name of AC, no more stealth, no more "secret order", no more story...



 @joe_shickler Judgement wasn't even canon, in the game, Baird was with a squad that never made any sense in the timeline...

Yes. There are MS nut tracks all around you lips and up and down your arms.

@joe_shickler Regardless of your reasons, you bought an overpriced machine with inferior service value from a company that spits in the face of gamers and is determined to milk them dry. We will continue to have fun at your expense.
