PS4. Playstation Plus is an amazing service and provides great value for Playstation owners. I own the PS4 and PS Vita and the PS Plus deals you get, more then exceeds the value for the 1 year membership you get for $50.

Well I got all "next-gen" systems now (PS4, Xbox One, Wii U). They are all good with both their strengths and weaknesses. 

 

Oh and Change hates me now. Most of my PS4 friends hate me because I bought an Xbone. You know what? I wanted the system for the games. So what if the hardware is inferior, the games matter more. Well what mainly pushed me is the Master Chief Collection... all teh Haloz in won disk..... To many game!

Picked up a PS4 recently. It'll be here tomorrow. I'm joining the console owners club once again. Still prefer PC gaming to console but many friends only play on PS4 so it made sense to grab one for a few games. Gonna get my Destiny on next month and probably BF4 for the time being.

Well I bought Premium for the Xbone version of BF4... $100 FOR BOTH SYSTEMS... Should be cross-buy!

Well, I've owned an Xbone since day one and a PS4 for a week.  So far, I can honestly say that I like the Xbone significantly better.  I am trying to think of a way to enumerate it without sounding like a "fanboy".  

 

I think it's the little things that make the system just more fun and easier to use.  The main menu on the Xbone is much better looking and easier to navigate than the PS4 one.  The voice commands through the Kinect is amazingly useful, as is the auto-sign-in.  The multitasking works really well.  The snapping of apps is super handy.  I also like the controller better, as far as the start/select button layout and the triggers/bumpers.  Twitch implementation is much better on Xbone.  Oh and did I mention that turning my Xbox on (and off) also turns on (and off) my TV and AVR?  Holy hell, that's awesome.

 

The PS4 does some things better, of course.  You don't need to spend extra money for an adapter to use a headset.  You can have chat through USB so you're not tethered to the controller.  Preloading/ordering games doesn't exist yet on Xbone.  The thumbsticks on the PS4 are a little better than the Xbone.

 

Overall, it feels to me like the PS4 is very much a gaming-oriented device.  While you CAN do other things on it, it's not a great experience.  That includes major things like usability of the XMB.

 

The Xbone, on the other hand, doesn't feel like it games any worse.  I know the PS4 is objectively more powerful, but it just doesn't seem noticeably better.  What the Xbox does do is make the whole user-experience much more pleasurable.  Updates have come like clockwork, once per month, and every one introduced noticeable QoL improvements.  

 

Of course I don't regret owning either.  They both have their strengths and it'll be nice to pick the system that best suits a given title. The Xbox makes a much better living-room box and the PS4 is a better man-cave box.  If I had to pick one again on its own merits (disregarding what my friends are using), I'd pick the Xbox (with Kinect) easily.

Try infamous second son you will see what the ps4 is capable of..you can use voice commands on the ps4 aswell..you get used to the controller on the ps4!

post #928 of 1021

Voted for PS4 before I realized the third option said neither. I would like to change my vote to neither.

Yeah, I really didn't like the first Infamous so I don't have much interest in Second Son.  I'll probably play it in a year when it's free on PS+ tho.  ;)

 

I have to say, as an older fellow who remembers playing text-only games, crazy graphics without fun game-play don't do anything for me.  Infamous and Ryze both have the same problem in my eyes.

 

Thanks, I'll look into the voice commands on the PS4.  I assumed you needed the camera thing.

 

And no.  I will not get used to the cheap feeling of the triggers or the HORRIBLE placement (and size) of the start button.  I'm sure I'd get used to it if I weren't swapping back and forth between the xbox controller, but as is... just no.

post #930 of 1021

 Not sure if you need the camera or not stillhart..I just use the controller for everything!
