As you can see, the Scarlett vs PS5 battle is raging all over SW as we speak.

And those consoles are still years away from launching.

This prompted me to ask:

When did the Xbone vs PS4 battle start? -On System Wars, I mean, and on other internet forums???

Did the fighting begin years before the consoles came out? Can you remember?

And can you remember which side you were on during that fight, before the consoles launched? And did you change sides during that fight?

Also, which of the consoles launched first anyways? I cannot remember that either...

Yes. Years before it started.

  • Next Xbox will be more powerful , Sony is broke
  • PS4 won't release in 2013 because Sony is broke they need to recoup money on PS3
  • Sony will go bankrupt
  • Kinect is the future
  • Microsoft is rich
  • Orbis vs. Durango
  • I remember most polls on the internet had Sony finishing 3rd before the systems were revealed

Never ended after 360vPS3, but it sure got heated when cows saw that the X has better performance than the Pro.

Kinect is the future! That made me laugh!

Especially since new Xbox One models no longer even have kinect port!!!

Which is a bit worrying, tbh. I mean how can I play Zumba Fitness (Xbone exclusive) on Xbone S when it dont even have Kinect port????

XBone vs PS4 battle started two generations previous to either of those consoles even launching.

It started when the OG Xbox came to market.

Arguing And getting emotionally attached to a plastic box that plays games is embarrassing

But saying that my Samsung 4k tv is better than yours

lol wait what?

Wasn't it actually xbox fans who overblew and over hyped "scorpio" by moronically thinking that power alone in a mid-gen upgrade would change everything and destroy Sony and PS4?

Yeah, that's actually what happened! You've got a funny account of history bud.

Cows actually didn't see shit in the X but a flop waiting to happen and that's exactly what occurred.

The only people who were silly enough to think a $500 mid-gen system with no games would do anything meaningful in the middle of a console generation were people like, well, just look at the your silly post here, lol you!! xbox fans.

I can't believe you're still talking as if the X actually did something significant after it launched and even the Switch starting from 0 in 2017 has nearly overtaken xbox one's entire lifetime sales in the same timeframe the X was released.

Tell me, now that next gen is about to start and you're going to have to buy another $500 - $600 console all over again, how did that $500 "scorpio" or "X" destroying PS4 (100 million > 40) work out for you guys? And wasn't Xbox one around 35 million in 2017? LMFAO oh you lems.

Early 2013 was a funny funny time. The rest of this particular 'console war' has been dull.

Probably has roots all the way back to OG Xbox being announced.

I can actually remember not being a gamer but being stoked Sony getting into the game with PlayStation. (Still in my musician days, you think gaming is expensive? Sheesh) Was not blown away like i hoped but had fun playing at friends places. Also thought the same thing about hearing Microsoft was getting in. I always thought and knew competition would make it better. Had roommate with the OG Xbox thought it was pretty cool played Halo 2 and Call of Duty, Gun etc. Thought it was fun but not enough to make me want to buy one. Then I saw some one playing Force unleashed on 360 and said holy sh*t that's what games look like now? So i bought one.

I did not even know this was a thing until I went from reading game walkthroughs to game news and got to the comment section. Never really got into it this crazy stuff to until this gen, and now getting to the back to I don't really care anymore mode. I like my system and like playing games.

Who shot first and whatever else, really does not effect me.

Scarlett vs PS5 right now isn't much of a battle considering we know very little about them.

Very little? Haven't you seen all the 'experts' claiming they know the hardware specs down to the last rivet, and telling us this and that console is clearly superior?

Oh, its on, bitc*es!

It's good to not have an XBox or Playstation console right now and not be a part of this size war, lol.

PS5 already won next gen.

Lems are going to meltdown hard when PS5 is outselling Xbox One XL at the end of 2020.

Years prior to the idea of either consoles’ existence. The first full on battle was the resolution and framerate of Battlefield 4 on each platform.
