I actually can't wait to see how Microsoft's PR pull themselves out of this huge swamp they created for themselves in the next few months. Epic come back alert?

I don't know about comeback; didn't all the consoles and handhelds outsell the 360?

post #63 of 106

The 360 actually sold better than both the WiiU and PS3 these past months.

MS shoot themselves in the foot with this DRM-thingie. PS3 just trolled MS after that... Still...

I guess the difference is that Sony is not MANDATING DRM... they are leaving it up to publishers like they currently do (i.e. they are basically saying, don't get mad at us! Get mad at the publishers if they decide to implement strict DRMs!). I remember I have some Capcom games (like Final Fight) that their DRM was to be always online when playing! Stopped buying Capcom games on the PSN after that. Still, at least Sony wont enable a restriction to connect to the console every 24 hours...

In case of Unreal Engine, I think we are looking at a smoother gameplay if nothing else + there might be a noticeable difference in graphics (there is now in the current gen...)


Since both use identical architecture in both CPU and GPU I suspect the difference on multiplatform games will be like between High and Very High setting in PC games, which could be appreciable.

PS4 is winning on every level. Better hardware check. $100 cheaper check. Used games meaning no DRM!! Oh you dont have to be "online" just to play your games. They did a poll after day 1 of E3 and 84% of the people felt the PS4 was winning!!!

I know right? Although the PS+ will now be required to play multiplayer, you do get a bunch of free games and discounts monthly, so it is worth it for that reason alone.

Microsoft, on the other hand, is just going nuts....

Their approach just doesnt seem gamer friendly at all. They put every thinkable restriction on it, they charge you for MP (and thats it), they trash people with no internet connection, they troll soldiers the same way... Damn they are just like a spoiled kid kicking around, throwing names...

And thats about it for MS from me. I bought the 360 twice (the first model broke on me three times for RROD sake) but I am not buying the ONE.... More expensive, lesser hardware, comes with a camera no one cares about, 3 OS that take up to 3 gigs of RAM, always online, one way selling games, no friend lending, always listening kinect, absurd fees and terms and this goes on and on... This is just ludicrous...

Good for MS they themselves got trashed by Sony for once... Jack Tretton is the man!

Is this going to be the official "all things PS4" thread? It's the only one I see with an appropriate thread title so here goes haha.

I was using my PS4 this weekend and marathined some shows on Netflix, the conroller's battery only lasted for a total of 6-7hr I would guess (it didn't go to sleep for this span). That seems REALLY short. This was it's very first charge so maybe it'll get better, can anyone chime in with their battery life experience on the PS4?

And that's that... That's the most you are probably gonna get. Controller battery life sucks compared to the old dualshock.
