Xbox. People can bitch and moan about pre-owned restrictions and a once every 24 hours connectivity requirement, But I don't care about that. I buy games to keep them for myself anyway. I have an Internet connection for live anyway. So really the restrictions don't bother me. As for the "Spying by the NSA" I'm not american and I'm not paranoid. SO ... that being said it's an easy decision. Also the Xbox has the nicer looking console and controller.

I keep games for myself, but I also buy games second hand. I picked Fable up for ~4, enjoyed it and bought 2 and 3 at full price. Second hand games are a great way of getting titles you would normally not buy.

As for the internet connection, every so often me and some friends go to a cabin in the mountains. It has no internet connection, but we just play LAN. It's great fun. Can't do this with Xbox One. So, unless something changes, I'm going with PS4.

2nd hand games can still be purchased from retailers, but only certain pre-approved retailers. MS announced this earlier this week.

PS4 for obvious reasons

As for the Xbox one I will probably get it once the price goes down.

this is how i see it
PS4

Pros
you can share games
you can play offline
good games
it's 100 cheaper and also better than xbox in terms of comps

cons
pay to play online
i hate the controller

Xbox One

pros
good games
i like the controller
cons
got to pay to play online
have to be online to play single play
can't bring your games over to a mates

my result:; i'm going buy the ps4 had 360,ps2,ps1 going back home now though on the current 360 system you need xbox live to use internet explorer seems there going to continue heading in the arse direction with there "one" system so yeah ps4...

Where is the option for both systems?

PS4 isn't 100 cheaper and you don't have to be online to play single player on the X1, you just have to connect once every 24 hours. You can use your X1 account on your friends system and play the games linked to your account.

Xbox One has the early CoD release again, the majority of virgins play CoD, Xbox will dominate the US sales while they will not give much of a turd for the rest of the world.

My friend and I came to the conclusion today that we're getting PS4's, even though we've been die hard fans of the Xbox for years. I really am going to miss Minecraft and I don't like missing out on TitanFall, but the PS4 has better hardware, 100 cheaper and the controller is better than how it previously was (;but it's still a shame about the position of the analog sticks, but I suppose I can adapt);. Does anyone know if they've got a chat system now? Otherwise I'll probably end up paying the extra 100 for the Xbox :;P

Honestly the fact that the controller is slightly bigger for western markets is one of the selling points for me since my hands always felt cramped while playing on my PS3.

I just hope developers don';t try to use the touchscreen as some sort of thing to use for gameplay and keep it simply as an interface for menus and console functions..

Screw the Xbox. It's not even being released in Japan until some time in 2015.

I'm considering getting a PS4 on the first day of release in Tokyo though.

Yeah, been here for a while now.

You are right, the Xbox is almost nonexistent over here.

I don't know why they don't try harder to get into one of the biggest gaming markets in the world.

Maybe their research suggests that even if they have the ultimate system the Japanese will still favour SONY, I don't know how well American products/games sell in Japan just having a guess.

Personally I will be getting a PS4, I do have friends over a lot just to play games so not being able to use a game more than once (;Xbox One); is an inconvenience. Also its 100 cheaper than the Xbox One

PlayStation 4 will sell for 349 in the UK, Xbox One will cost 429. How does this work out to be 100 cheaper?

I probably wont get any of them. But it I as then I would be stupid to buy the Xbox over the PS4.

The PS4 is just better.

the thing is some expers think microsoft is actually looking into the future where most sales will possibly be digital

to be honest digital sales ONLY work well on PC where there is good DD services like Steam where you can freely download games on your account with the limiting factor being your hardrive which these days most people are starting to use terabyte drives which easily dwarf anything the consoles have.

I kind of agree with their intentions of trying to think ahead but their action of trying such a risky thing on console is not such a good idea when it is something that mainly works well with PC.

PS4, easy. Thing is I have a PS3 now, and i'm not sure if it is wise to get a PS4 on launch or not. There are quite a few games already catching my eye on next-gen but i'm still trying to enjoy my Ps3 for now. Had it since '07 or '08, dont remember.

doesn't hurt to upgrade i mean your Plus account will carry over to your PS4

I wonder if Microsoft is doing the same thing with Live memberships.

I'd suspect so since you can access you're live account through their Xbox live website, too much hassle to get new servers and set up a new website to have people who already have live accounts create new live accounts and then having to different support websites and such, they've taken the easy route for most things so they will do the same for this
