There you go.

Also, no DRM.

(But you have to pay to play online, it seems)

Win on price, win on specs, win on DRM, losing on games for me just because Titanfall is the only exclusive I've seen that I'm really interested in. But overall I think Sony just did themselves a lot of favors.

Though that Parallelogram design looks like shit IMO.

Yeah. Respawn totally fucked up for latching on the Microsoft so quick. It looks good, but I'll be waiting for a price cut before I buy an Xbone... If I ever do.

What I would not give to have been a fly in the Microsoft room when the PS4 used game policy, internet connection requirements and console pricing were announced. I bet the profanity was FUCKING EPIC.

The way shit gets around the gaming industry MS probably already had a pretty good idea.

I don't think that Microsoft care. They think they're right, just like with Windows 8. I'm fairly convinced PS4 is the way to go next gen. Though I've been fairly set against Xbone since the reveal.

Tonight, we just heard from Sony that the PlayStation 4 will be coming out this holiday season with a price of $399 in the US, along with first look at the hardware design of the next-gen console. Furthermore, Sony has revealed that the PS4 will come equipped with a 500 GB HDD, the same size hard drive found in Xbox One.

The PlayStation 4 will also come equipped with a headset and HDMI cable in every box. The PS4 camera, however, will be sold separately for $59. For players who need an extra controller for co-op action, a new Dual Shock 4 controller will cost you $59 as well.

Yeah, but the PS4 just did a Hulk to Microsoft's Loki.

According to PSU, the PS4 will also feature a removable hard drive and will be region free (just like the PS3).

I don't play online multiplayer games, so I really have no need for a headset in the box, but otherwise, I'm still pretty pumped. The parallelogram design seems a little silly, though.

So, right now the worst thing about PS4 is something that's already wrong with XBox 360.

My only concern is that Microsoft will be able to use the no used games thing to finagle exclusive deals out of major Western developers.

Fortunately 75% of my favorite games are Japanese. No risk of any Japanese games being XBox exclusive. And any Western games that are not on PS4 will probably have superior PC versions anyway.

For myself, I am getting the PS4. I have already two games that I am interested in - Thief and Witcher 3. I thoroughly enjoyed the earlier Thief game on the first XBOX. There is one location that I remember vividly - it was the insane asylum. Great game overall.

They're not even launching in Asia this year, that sort of tells you what they think about that market.

Crazy to see stores taking pre-order on these consoles now. PS4 certainly feels less daunting than XBox at the moment, I know I'm leaning that way at the moment.
