Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

Yeah but does the PS4 not have pre-order sales spread over 4 bundles, compared to the one xbox one bundle.

Yes the PS4 bundles currently sit in 16th, 27th, 31st and 52nd place while the only XB1 sits in 3rd.

Obviously combined the PS4 will probably be ahead, although that said obviously 16th spot is a fair few less than 3rd, and the lower ones will be way, way less, so i doubt the difference is that much.

But still, who are these people buying the XB1? I'd like to meet one of them, i'd like to shake their hand just to know they really exist because from everything you see online there is NOBODY buying one.

Just seems strange, I think people have been put of "admitting" they bought one for shame of losing "coolness points" or something

I assume this is on the US Amazon, on the UK one the PS4 is 4, X1 is 14th, and i think we only have the one pS4 bundle over here at present.

Kind of makes me wonder just who IS buying the xbox one?
My brother, for one. He visited over the last few days and kept picking fights with me over it. He truly believes that Xbox One will be the superior console because of features enabled by the new Kinect, and he's disappointed that MS backed away from their previous DRM policies as he said that those features would be conveniences for him. He also believes the claims about cloud processing and how it will be a game-changer, and he uses the phrase "future proof" a lot. At one point, he referred to the PS4 as the "Playstation 3.5". He thinks that indie games are mostly crap and that forcing indie devs to partner with publishers will impose quality control on the XBL marketplace. He accuses me of taking part in an anti-MS circlejerk because of my concerns about what I perceive to be worrying anti-consumer policies associated with MS's flagship products over the last few years. He compared my preference for the PS4 as being a similar form of delusion as those exhibited by religious fanatics.

He owns a Surface RT tablet and a Windows phone, and he's planning on buying a new PC with Windows 8. Just throwing that out there so you get an impression of how platform agnostic he is.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

He's probably right - the X1 may very well be a superior performer compared to the PS4.

But it doesn't matter. Performance vs customer trust. The latter is a game-changer.

Re: Will you be getting a PS4 or an Xbox One ?

I don't see how. The PS4 has better spec, they're both running cloud services, Sony has it's own film and tv studios to fall back on for entertainment options. Just off the top of my head.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the cloud service on xbox1 integrated a lot better than the ps4, one thing I will give microsoft is their online service is miles better than sonys, Microsoft does have the better infrastructure being a more specialised tech company.

I think the xbone will be ok tbh, I kind of answered my own question in regards to who's buying it, since it's selling well but no gamers seem to be getting it, it'll be the casuals buying. The "exclusive dlc" on COD probably tempting them haha.

They will bleed the casuals with cheap to make kinnect crap, sad but true it'll make money

Well looks like Sony will have the "log in and download your digital content on any device" that MS have removed.

Microsoft didn't remove playing your digital content on any device - the 360 already does that. They removed playing your retail content on any device (without the disc).

Does it? As far as I was aware the 360 only allowed limited amounts of downloads on other consoles and complete transferrals of licenses via a transfer cable and the One was to do the same?

The 360 allows unlimited downloads to other consoles; the only restriction is that you have to be signed into to play on any machine but the licensed one*, while that first machine will let anybody play. (I don't know if you have to be connected to Live on those other machines, or if the owner can play offline.)

The Sony system as described in that article sounds to me like it's structured the same way - the owner can download to any machine, but they have to be signed in to play.

* Defaults to where it's first downloaded. You can do a "license transfer" annually to move your licenses to another box.
