1st it was games that needed Patches. Now the whole freaking console itself needs a patch.... A day one patch..... A mandatory day one patch. In other words they sold it to you broken and they want you to go out of your way to fix it. Atleast with a PC you can open that shit and fix it yourself. Why pay $500 give up that level of autonomy ? Morons :p !

Heres the thing... Microsoft will eventually get a few of these problems fixed but heres the other thing.... It wouldn't have to be that way if they weren't so damn misguided in the 1st place, them and they're stupid cloud. And with the level of preparation and prerequisites it needs its just not worth it... Add to boot they don't got many 4 player games... For the couch.

Congradulations Lemmings you finaly have a machine that Rivals the PC.... In all the worst ways possible. :p I wonder what this says about Americans since the US is practically the only Territory they own ?

Try selling that broken piece of shit in Europe !

Then you see that the PS4 is the world's most powerful video game console to have ever been created in the history of video games and to top off that, it's $100 cheaper. WOW! No wonder SONY and the PS4 is selling so much better than the Xbone. Maybe the Arthur has some real, VALID points.

How long did it take you to get up and gaming when you pulled your PS4 out of the box?

Testify, my brother! Let em know!

I was literally playing Killzone is under 15 minutes and that's taking time to unbox, hook up and download the day 1 patch. Install times ins't even up for a debate, MS really blew it with that.

And that is why I posted the article. It makes sense that the PS4 is taking off faster than iPhone because even casuals like the author don't have a whole lot to bitch about with the PS4. Making the PS4 fast was a bigger bullet point in its unveiling than Sony made it to be. They wanted to target the core gamers like you and me, but the system is an improvement in almost every way. Even in ways we overlook that may be a big deal for other types of gamers.

not to mention they stil stiff you with the Absurd Paywall that is XBL Gold Membership. Which I'm sure wouldn't surprize me if you got a pop up telling you need Gold if you wana install updates. I know it sounds crazy but look at all the other stuff behind the pay wall and tell me they haven't atleast considered it. Combine the Power of The " CLOUD" with GOLD membership and Get ready because Microsoft is about to give you a GOLDEN SHOWER ! LOL ! :p

actually, no it doesn't apply to the PS4. He uses "console" and "Xbox One" quite interchangeably. On top of that, he makes no reference to Sony or the PS4 in the entire article and tbh, I don't blame him. The install times on the Xbox One are atrocious.

He does have a point though, before I was a PC gamer I was am massive console gamer and loved my PS2, but that was a simple console, it played your games, DVD's and CD's and that was it.

After that they started adding silly things for nothing, can you just imagine if Sony gave PS4 basic media capabilities and gave the ~3Gb of memory and the 2 CPU cores the current OS uses back the developers?

PS2, Xbox and Game Cube were the last true consoles...

To everyone saying this applies to PS4, it doesn't have crappy install times like X1 does. It's far easier to set up. Sorry deflecting won't help you here.

So Xbox sucks because of one isolated incident. My setup and installation went smooth, but everyone will not have the same experience same can be said for ps4. But what's really astonishing is that this opinionated article is really being used as legitimate reason to prove Xbox sucks instead of it being chalked up to an isolated incident that could happen on either console. I call Bs this guy just has a bad connection not to mention its no secret that Xbox requires a day one update, did we not know this in October of last year? I have had no such problems with my Xbox initial setup is not as bad as he says, this article clearly shows its something on the user side and not Xbox. He got mad and posted an article about not liking Xbox, good to one user opinion is all it takes to rate a console as "it sucks".

Oh sheen's you never cease to amaze at your hypocrisy.

hypocrisy is a 2 way street. You can harp on about how things were last gen all you want, but what's important is Sony learned from their mistakes and Microsoft is now the one that must learn and correct their mistakes. Nobody is saying mandatory installs are great, we are saying that if either or both systems must have them, they need to be as short and unobtrusive as possible. Installs on ps4 take seconds and updates happen in the background. Xbone installs take several minutes and they try to make users update at the same time, making things take even longer before they can play.

So, it looks like he says not just the Xbox One, but all consoles suck, and mobile gaming is superior.

Is this seriously the kind of BS you want to be supporting, Shewganja?

That's how I read it too, and that's certainly the reality of the situation. Console updates have gone way overboard IMO.

just as casual as that blonde woman from the new yorker or new york times a couple of weeks back.

edit: maybe the reviewer was too casual to begin with, but this hardly makes the xb seem appealling.

@sts106mat sorry i lost all my notifications, but i remember that you asked me a question - the answer is Auckland, NZL.

no worries.

thanks for that, that is a great city. I live in the UK, but my wife and i got married in Rotorua.

I really don't get the problems other people are having with their Xbox One... Am I having the best Xbox One made or something? Because I haven't had a single problem since I bought it on release date. No game crashes, no black screen, etc...

I dunno, the installs aren't an issue for me since i always installed on 360. you can do other things with the console while its installing anyway.

The xbox updates happen automatically when i am in bed FFS, how is that a problem?

this thread is a cow circle jerk about a blog article.

lol, what a waste of time article. If this was about Playstation, the cows would see the flaws in it.

And installs and updates can improve, it's not a hardware thing. They can make changes to the way they work. And if going by the Xbox 360s history, MS are going to change so much in the course of the gen.

I'm not going to argue about this because I have to let time prove my point. But I will say the Xbox Ones software was extremely rushed and absolutely bare bones at launch. Cows don't understand by how much so. This isn't an excuse, it's a fact. I actually think the software was at least a year behind, The games are in okay to decent condition and the hardware is perfect (not rushed in terms of quality control like the Xbox 360s). But the software in between that and the way the services work with it needs so much work.

The butthurt is real.

It's actually a tangible thing. And I think our resident Lem mod @AdobeArtist would chuckle at this nefarious accusation.

One thing I truly admire about System Wars is that it isn't incumbent upon you to be politically correct. If I simply made the title of the thread irrespective to the title of the article to troll, yeah, I would expect to be modded and have a thread lock. Instead, we have a respectable forum to talk about what is REALLY being talked about all over the internet. In my time here at System Wars, I have learned that every fanbase has its bad days. You can cry about it, or you can join the discussion and leave your delicate snowflake costume at the door.

For all of SWs faults, that is its true strength. That's what keeps me coming back.

Could not agree more. Well said.

The stupidly of people not only in this thread but in the world. Do any of you ever stop to think no wait that's asking to much around here but anyway can some of you please try and stop to think? Listen lets look at this correctly. The Xbox One offers far more integration and apps and features then the PS4 currently does. So WTF DUH!!! It's obviously going to have a bigger more complex suite of software packages to be downloaded.
