WTF is with all the timed exclusives? Its literally MS paying developers not to launch a FINISHED game on anything but their console first. its stupid

Xbox One is a cable box.

XboxOne w/free FIFA = 499 Euro

PS4 w/FIFA = 459 Euro

Hmm...not a huge soccer fan but it still makes more sense on PS4 versus Xbox. 

Dead Rising 3 looked awesome though! Anyone know if that's an exclusive or just timed exclusive?

I like both consoles but I have pre ordered the xbox one purely for the games. Although playstation will have some fantastic games like killzone and the order, I just prefer the xbox exclusives like forza and dead rising. It's all about preference and opinion, stop arguing about it and just get on and be happy that you can afford something that is as expensive as they are.

Why doesn't Bill Gates buy the gaming portion of Sony and then release the old-DRM X1 and then the PS4.

All profits, more variety. It's a win/win MS. Come on. You know you wanna.

Ok, Xbox have the best day one and first year line up!! Sony try to fill our eyes with indies and more indies, if I wanted indies i would buy a OUYA for 99$ or keep buying them at Steam or Xbox Live Arcade.

I want the real deal!!

In my opinion, it don't matter what console you prefer its about the games and for me XB has the better line up, I pre ordered mine way back when you first could and I am no FIFA fan, i would like the choice of a free game title would of been a nicer idea. Any way my point is the XB for me is aimed more at the lets say the Mature gamer and I liked the direction in which all console's are heading PS4 or XB1 are very similar to me its about personal preference, keep smiling peeps its good for all gamers, and just one final note don't mock the PC gamers after all that's where it all began : )

Sony conference's: 0/3

MS conference's: 2/3

That's my thoughts!

I know I want a gaming console too that does the main thing it's made for which is games! They will both do that and they will also do the same kind of job with Movies, music...all the other features....Ms may have had a bad start with their message but with the way the industry is with Steam and digital downloads then what the hell is wrong with that? Sony has done nothing but give MS a better angle to adjust their product and make it better overall while all Sony does is base their entire product on what MS does!

The original policies were harsh but look at the entire setup now of the XONE! I see a better future for MS cause they're willing to bring new things, make mistakes and are not afraid to adjust their products to suit! Instead of just trying to bully another company into not moving too forward!

PS4 fans if you want sony go ahead and buy sony, you don't have to advertise for it in every xbox page

I tryed i relly did... No i still dont see a reason to buy XB1 yet. Not one of this games is a big deal to me. Dont like co-op (Fable) CoD is rent to me, I play maybe 1 fighter a year (Within)  Hate DLC (killer) All Sport games (FIFA) 

What funny there is no RPG in there line up short of Dragon age. Which after 2 I cant say till it out.

Why didn't they have a bigger stage like Sony's?...oh and yeah  give me those 36 mins of my life back.

Rivals, Football , COD and MMO fable?...that's it?, and Xbots were complaining about and mocking Sony's conference, while they showed more games and revealed new ones both indies and not.

"I want it to be like Sony." *Straight face* "HAHAHA, just kidding." *Fist bump*

Sounds about right.

i love both systems and if i could get both i would but im going with PS4 first. MS needs to come out and say yeah we screwed up im sorry.. but they just keep putting stuff behind the paywall. why should i have to pay $60 to use anything on xbox 1... titanfall, and forza 5 looks great i cant wait to play them. the DIVISION is the game im looking forward to the most, now that is a true NEXT gen game... back at E3 when they showed the division that was on PS4 and i was like WOAH... but both systems are great. sony talked alot about the vita today cause they didnt really have to do anything else except show the UI.. xbox kinda had to dig themselves out of a hole that they digged for themselves. buit i do give MS credit ever since Don Mattrick left MS has been listening to the consumer.... but honestly its all about personal opinion on consoles but for me i like both but imma get the PS4 first. i thing its kinda cool how i can watch my friend play the game online. or if i have twitch and im singed in i could use the share button and its automatically streams it to anyone. developers have came out and said that if i wanna get the best experience on BF4 and AC4 play it on PS4.. PS4 has console exclusives for Destiny, AC4, Watch Dogs, The Division.. i mean like i said i love both consoles but PS4 just gives me more for my money..

@kgallis21 One of the biggest war propaganda writers of our time. This man CERTAINLY does not deserve tribute or honoring for all his glamorification of the military machine and extreme patriotism.

@Jumpy7  I thought Sony just announced a TV deal with Viacom???  IMO I use a console to play games and watch TV, well I stream movies from my PC's HDD to my 360.  So this extra business with the tv thing just makes it that much better for me! Now with this news of indies self-publishing only makes me happier.  The only thing they need to change now is make the X1 have a replaceable HDD :)

@Oripmav minecraft sucks a little bit less than fifa so i guess that would be OK.

THANK YOU sir! It can be tough sometimes not to get into an argument because what we purchase says something about who we are, but the fact is, you need to buy what you like. Make your own decision, don't let others make it for you. Of course doing your homework and research is never a bad thing....

@PartyGavinParty Well one because bill gates doesnt work for microsoft anymore. and two because thats the dumbest idea ever. Sony wouldn't sell that.

@Drachen-Dorwolf But that's what they were going for. They said how Indie friendly they were and proved it by all the titles they showed. There methods of supporting Indie games is so great that Microsoft switched their policy to match it. Don't get me wrong the Xbox One line up is great, but you can't say Indie games have not come along way since games like The Walking Dead and Journey beat AAA games like Borderlands 2 and Halo 4 in pretty much every single game of the year awards of 2012.

@Zid96 

All fair points. Are you going to do PS4? Tell me what games they have that stand out. Or the Wii U.

The only acceptable answer I will receive is "PC" because a number of big name games are coming out for it like Rome: Total War II and Planetary Annihilation as well as Star Citizen.

@Dictatroll Big Stage for Sony to talk about Gamepad again. Yeah right. That what MS should've done too ...

@hrothgar99 

I'd actually put the Xbox One ahead. Without the "you can use used games" card, Sony looks pretty bland.

There wasn't really much to Microsoft's conference, but it still had some neat game announcements and it's nice to see them showing their support for indie and small developers and taking a few steps to demonstrate their support for multiplats.

@ravengamer55 The paywall stuff that really pisses me off is the damned non-MS services like Netflix, there's no excuse for that.  MS are treating Xbox Live like old school AOL or Compuserve or something.

@ravengamer55 


They already basically did. But regardless, I don't need them to apologize or any kind of nonsense. I just need them to deliver. They're not my best friend, I don't know them and they don't owe me.

Just give me a system.

@thisBlueDude @thanxforplayin Imagine if they released the same day as PS4, it would be so crazy at walmarts and other retail stores doing a midnight release!!!!   But my guess will be November 22, same as the 360... I take that back, they will probably release before PS4 just to try and win over the very impatient people

@AncientDozer @Zid96 There aren't games that really stand out on the PS4 but games like Infamous, LBP and Killzone are pretty good exclusives :)

@AncientDozer @Zid96 Ya iv been mowing over PC as my main. But i dont like the idea of not have a real item in my hand:(  

There no wow'in games for Xb1 or PS4. PS4 only good looking due to the crossplay with it hand held. As for Wii U well i have one... But they do there thing. Which i love. But if there like Wii then only get out 2 or 3 games a year out of it. So it just cant be main.

@arqe @Dictatroll well said, in a bubble sony had a smaller stage and MS had a shait show. so both came out pretty well, right?

arqe

@telmor84 @arqe They are big yeah but i was talking about the companies. Look how they talk at conferences and compare it to current gen's. Even current gen was running they were doing announcements with Joy like kindergarden kid who get the toy he wanted. Now they just come to stage , talk with gamers like they are selling their best technology to CEO's. 

They are acting so serious like they want this thing over.

telmor84
telmor84

@arqe @telmor84 now i really don't get your point. that's just 2 companies fighting for the same space. they both will do anything to get one inch closer. consoles are as big as they ever were right now. 

arqe

@telmor84 I think consoles becomes less and less interesting. Or people got used to them so even companies doesnt care how the conferences go. I dont know.

They are powerful than their predecessor yeah right but they are both the same now.

Microsoft changed every single original idea to gain customers back.

And Sony was the same with Ps3 from the beggining.
