I remember the good ol days of TVRage when it was PS3 vs X-Box 360 but another era has ended and a new one is beginning. This time around Sony is looking to get that head start and from what I hear in multiple sources, the PS4 is getting more praise than 'One' but of course neither console is out yet.

I'm saving up for that PS4 and I'm shamelessly admit that I'm more of a Sony fan.

The XBox One has been a publicity disaster though, hasn't it? I haven't looked too closely at them recently, but when they were announcing the features for them a few months ago, it seemed as though MS was intentionally going out of their way to annoy their customers.

I'm probably going to end up getting a PS4 too. I've got a Vita so I'm looking forward to them doing interesting things connecting the two, and although both consoles are going to be region-free this time around, from time to time I import the Japanese version of games and XBox has never done particularly well over there.

Yes the X-Box One has produced almost no hype, especially after they announced you couldn't play used games. They pissed even their loyal fanbase.

They fixed that now but it still left a bad first impression plus its $100 more than the PS4.

The $100 includes the new Kinect, a piece of tech I'm sure Sony wishes they had considering the Move is kind of.. well.. lame.

I will probably end up with both, just like how I have both PS3/360, but I tend to play more Xbox because the online service is better and most of my friends play that.

I know it comes with a Kinect but the general audience doesn't really look into what both consoles come with. They just look at the price.

I won't get the X-Box just because I hate having to pay for online. I'm too cheap.

You are aware you will need Playstation Plus to play online with a PS4, right?

Single-player games, as well as all media services, will still work without subscribing to PS+ however.

I've already have my Day One edition of the XBOX on pre-order from amazon. will be delivered to my door for free opening day. the only reason the XBOX DRM was a problem was because their "loyal fanbase" can't see past their noses. the system they were trying to implement was forward thinking, but idiots got it changed to backward thinking. they went back to system they started 10 years ago almost. if you know anything about technology, anything that old is outdated.

I have a buddy who works for Microsoft and he told me all the things they had planned for the xbox with the "new system". he admits that MS crap the bed by focusing too much on the things that it couldn't do and not on the things it was going to do and explaining them well enough for the mouth breathers to understand. but it's all been scrapped for discs in brick and mortar stores that are going out of business anyway.

i'll get a ps4 eventually as well. just not right away.

It'll all depend on the game. I know my addiction to Netflix won't be compromised on the PS4.

CoD: Ghost for sure. i'm interested in Ryse because of the subject matter, but the more I read about it, the more gameplay seems dated. i'll have to play the demo. I got a buddy in vegas that loves the dead rising series and he's my primary co-op wingman. i'm indifferent to it. he'll probably con me into getting it. really, what else am I gonna do?

Dead Rising 3 looks seriously awesome. I'm already a big fan of that series though, but this one just looks to take it to another level crazy.

Titanfall looks interesting and really seems to be the BIG exclusive Microsoft is pushing for.

And then there is Quantum Break. I'm a little unsure of it as of now but I loved the Max Payne and Alan Wake games.
