    Its worth getting for just 2k14 tho. Once Watchdogs and Uncharted 4 come out, it will be worth getting for sure

    There aren't even any bundles yet. Some stores have made their own but actual good savings bundles will probably drop next year when there is a decent lineup of games. A basketball game that plays the same on current Gen is not enough to entice me to pony up.

    meh the graphics aren't gonna be much different and I just find xbox to be much smoother and much better for multiplayer, better user experience overall, plus it just does more. PS4 is already having framerate dropping issues and it just doesn't appear to have improved much other than power obviously and I was shocked to find out just how bad the ps3 was at doing most things after doing research.. and as far as games, there are more games coming out for the xbox that I want to play, but that's a personal opinion thing. Even the new ability to record on the ps4 is much more time consuming and more difficult than it needs to be when compared to the xbone, plus u don't have to actually leave the game to record on xbox which is nice. I dunno, it just depends what u want in a system I guess, and to each their own. Both gonna be good systems but yeah im an xbox guy lol

    Anyone else been playing Assassin's Creed Black Flag? I have to say I am very impressed thus far. Way better than the last one, which isn't saying much I know since the entire story was based around a whiney teenager. The pirate angle is awesome and it's super fun to go around just being a pirate. The story seems good so far (about 34% through campaign) and the ship battles are actually fun.

    The Xbone is the only console that can see your penis through your clothes:


    Beyond that I don't think it does anything better than the PS4.

    Clearly a fold in his pants.

    I haven't yet used a ps4 but just based on some videos I think the xbox 360 even does some simple things better, but again its just personal preference I guess.

    For me I guess the biggest thing is xbox live>PSN, xbox UI>PS UI, and graphics look the same, more framerate issues have been reported for PS4 while the same game seems to run smoother on xbox one. Also, the graphics in Ryse and Forza look better than anything launching for PS4 (Though Ryse might turn out to be a terrible game lol). And again, I prefer the exclusive games coming out for xbox in the future.

    Most of those things could be argued either way I'm sure and just comes down to preference

    LOL That's just what the Infrared sensors see in the Kinect I think.
    The camera itself doesn't actually show that unless you have the Dev. Kit or have it connected and hacked in a computer.

    And the technology in the Kinect 2.0 adds enough value to make the extra cost worth it in my books.

    PS Move was absolute crap.

    Even tho PS4 improved on the PS3, xbox still seems to be faster and more intuitive to navigate with more options.. plus im willing to bet that online and multiplayer will be significantly better again. PS is known for putting its money towards hardware and MS is known for putting its money towards xbox live for years and it shows. Apparently all the servers that Microsoft is giving developers free access to is a big deal too but i don't know much about that end of it.

    Ive already talked to numerous people who switched to PS4 from the 360 and are disappointed for the same reasons. A few of them have already sold their ps4's and are waiting for the xbone.

    So you didn't answer my question. Why is XBL better than PS+? XBL is a gate keeper to doing anything online. PS+ is totally different, merely giving subscribers dozens of free games(PS3,PS4, PSP & PSV) over the course of the year; a lot of AAA games. Plus big time discounts, plus full game trials, plus sometimes entry into hot betas, plus free wallpapers & avatars.

    I started out with a 360 and I still own one. Funny thing is when I moved it never got hooked up again, I had no real good reason. My PS3 is getting all my time as I have a back log of free games to play through such as Demon Soul, Infamous 2, Saints Row 2, Saints Row 3, LBP2, LBP Karting, Just Cause 2, Borderlands, Payday, Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil HD Collection, Bioshock 2, NBA Jam, Darksiders, Vanquish, Spec Ops, Sleeping Dogs, Dues Ex: Human Evolution, Battfield 3, Hitman: Absolution, Kingdoms of Amalur, Shadow of Colossus, Ico HD, Dragons Dogma, Uncharted 3, XCOM, Wipeout HD, Uncharted Golden Abyss, Wipeout 2048, Ninja Golden Sigma Plus, Disgaea 3, Rayman Origins, Soul Sacrifice, plus dozens of famous Indy games, PSP games, and PS1 classics. Seriously, there are some many great games on my list as part of the subscription that its kind of overwhelming.

    I've punched my time and paid my money for both. In retrospect, what I paid to Microsoft was like burning my money compared to the investment in PS+.

    I have so many free games to play that I won't even hop into the next generation until a year or two down the road.

    And that's great that your friends are switching to the system you're choosing to purchase but when I go into any gaming store I can't find a PS4 so it would appear many people are looking to invest in Sony for this next gen. I think you're all a year too early personally though... One thing I am really excited about is the (free)streaming gaming service from Sony. I'll be able to play all the PS4 games on my Vita so when my daughter or wife wants the TV, no problem, I can play via my Vita in the basement, in my bedroom, on the toilet, on the deck, wherever. That's a beautiful thing.

    Fair enough. To each his own. For me, the only games i have played and had an interest to play on that list were NBA JAM and Hitman Absolution. Payday 2 was good but man they need more maps. I would like to play uncharted but that's an exclusive..

    Anyway, i prefer paying for a better service that provides a better experience for the games I actually buy and want to play and online is a big part of that. Xbox gives away free games and discounts and all that too, I just turned on my xbox and noticed i was given $10 cash to spend on whatever i want from xbox live rewards just from doing everyday things i normally do on my xbox.. but either way i guess im a little more selective than most when it comes to gaming and im not a huge indy fan. Hopefully the online gaming experience will be much better now that PS users have to pay for it but early reports aren't good (i know its still early) and chances are it will never be as good as the experience you have on xbox. In some ways the ps4 is just catching up to the xbox 360 - ie. cross game chat and other conveniences that xbox users take for granted and even still those features either don't work or don't work the way they are supposed to according to some people.

    I can totally see why PS+ is more valuable to you and maybe you don't care about the features i do. For me its the other way around and thankfully there's 2 good consoles to choose from.

    Welcome to the future, gentlemen. At the beginning of the last Gen I suffered 4 red rings before they sorted it out; translates to about two years. Sony had less troubles last time around and the Vita tech launched virtually flawless so if I were a betting man I'd go with history and put my money on Sony having less problems.

    Also Xbox one has sold like a million units in like 13 countries in around 24 hours. While PS4 sold the same amount in the same time frame in only the US and Canada alone. In other words, Microsoft is going to get smacked.

    Both the consoles have release issues, like all new consoles, it happened last gen and its happening now.

    I still don't see any reason anyone would buy an Xbox One besides being a Microsoft fan boy. All my friends who owned xbox's are all converting to PS4. The exclusives on PS4 are unmatched. Forza? really? Ever heard of Grand Turismo? probably the best racing simulator franchise of all time. How bout Uncharted? Watch dogs? Killzone? Infamous? Metal Gear Solid?
    Lets be real here. Xbox has never produced any stellar earth shattering game franchises other than Halo.
