Welp, so much for Kinect being "an important part of Xbox One".
Also, (some) media apps will be usable without Gold and Games With Gold on Xbone will need an active subscription to be played.

 The watchdogs looks better on xbox one or ps4 debate..first video is a xbox one 1080p video which is darker and the second one is a ps4 720p video which is a lot brighter..i have been watching different videos on the two systems all day..it looks good on xbox one with the darker visuals but the ps4 is just a lot smoother and a lot less blurry and doesn't draw things from a distance or a have problems drawing shadows from a distance or have any screen tear like the xbox one does..saying that i would happily play on either one of them. they even did a good job of the last gen versions of watchdogs!

 Xbox 360 version looks decent!

PS4, because it has just enough things (In terms of function, hardware, and games) to set it apart from the XONE (Which I feel is pretty much a gaming PC with a custom OS and Xbox Branding.)

So, watching E3? If anyone asked me,

Ori and the Blind Forest and the game from Limbo devs

were kinda interesting.

 

Same as before. (Click to show)
Scalebound, an exclusive game from Platinum Games.

didn't look that great, but it was only a CG trailer. And it's them, probably will end up good.

Not too bad but wasn't all that impressed. Some interesting games.I'd give it a 7. Above average but not amazing either.

The only game I am bothered about is the division but it's not coming out until 2015!

Not enough of a justification. Besides, one is mindless fun and the other is supposed to be compelling storytelling, and there is a place for both.

I picked up an Xbox one for the TV pass through and the media features as well as games.

I use to be a big gamer but now that I'm in my 30s I need a system to be more than just a game machine to justify the purchase.

Me and my fiancé use the voice commands to change channels, pause shows, fast forward shows etc etc. it's also nice to have Skype right there in your living room and it's pretty cool how it zooms in and pans around to follow the person who is talking on video calls.

Outside of that, it plays games. Most of the games on PS4 are also on Xbox and I personally don't see any real difference in the graphics between the two. I am about 3-4 feet further than I should be from a 65 inch TV...but all the games seem to look really good.

All that said...I don't think either system represents a big enough leap over last generation. Hopefully in a few years we'll get to see some games that last gen wouldn't have been able to handle.

I was under the assumption that most people choose their console based on the exclusive games it has. At least I do, multiplatforms are just a nice bonus for me!

You can control the ps4 by voice aswell..it was the 1080p games that swayed me over to the ps4..i couldn't see the point of having a pass through, I have my ps4 with my monitor and my virgin media box through my tv, both in the bedroom..i have a pc for Skype.. I think the ps4 is a big enough leap over last gen with 1080p games running at 60fps..last gen games ran at 720p at 30fps! P.s Outlast is on xbox one now!

Different use cases. I have my system in a family room. It's my all in one box to control everything entertainment and the voice control does just that, controls everything.

Viewing distance to be able to see 1080p on a 65 inch tv is about 10-12 feet max distance from the TV. Max viewing distance to see the benefits if 1080p on a 42 inch tv is 6-8 feet away.

For me personally...I'm too far away from the TV to enjoy all that it can do visually. To me, so far this generation is a resolution bump that most people can't physically see from their viewing distance and a frame rate jump. Overall visual presentation of the games just isn't the jump that was PS2-PS3 or xbox to 360.

We can talk about FPS and resolution till the cows come home...that doesn't change the fact that it's a benchmark for this generation that will be irrelevant once all games on all systems run at those frame rates and resolution. That will take time for devs to get use to making games on both systems....but these things will still be lost on most people due to their set up and viewing distance.

I still use the Xbox more to control my family room media needs rather then to play games. I guess I'm old...I don't have time to play games as much anymore. That's why I choose the Xbox one...I needed more functionality to justify paying for another game system.

Hmmm just watched a video for Outlast...never heard of it before. I might have to check it out.

To add to what I wrote above...looking at The Division gameplay videos...you can already see that next year is the year we are going to appreciate what these next gen systems can do more so than this year. smily_headphones1.gif
