    Default XBOX one vs PS4?

    PS4 all the way....whatever you guys do don't buy an xbox one apearently microsoft is working with the NSA to retrieve user infromation. Xbox connect is always watching you, you have to authenticate every 24 hours online? wtf! and you can't play used games. This has to be the worst decision or joke microsoft has ever made and I will be happy to see this console crash, burn and fail.

    They just announced (after so much public ridicule over their cocky 'Buy a 360 if you don't like it' attitude) that they'll be allowing disks to be re-sold without DRM written content, and that the Xbox will function offline without 24 hour check in times.

    So far, it seems like too little too late. Kinect will still be mandatory, $100 extra for the price tag still doesn't warm the heart, and while gamers seem happy that their voices are actually heard, I don't think the company did itself any favors waiting this long to fix things without being sensitive to gamer needs in the process. I think too many people are going to switch over to PS4 as a result.

    Being a fan of the PS3 currently, that makes me quite happy. 360 rates will drop so I can pick one of those up cheap, and PS4 will release (hopefully) some really awesome content with revenue from turned off Xbox fans.

    Xbox One has everything to become Microsoft's biggest fiasco.



    Oh, I just read that they decided to eliminate the 'always online' and 'no used games' stuff.

    BREAKING NEWS!!!!

    I basically decided to buy a ps3 because I wanted to play Metal Gear Solid 4, and I'm planning to stick with Playstation.

    Interesting.

    Now I need to rethink which one I might buy, if I do buy a console at all.

    A couple days ago, I walked into Gamestop and asked the employees for their personal opinions on the original policies. They basically demonstrated how efficiently Gamestop grooms them when it wants to increase morale and keep the gears turning smoothly.

    I've always owned every console, since the PS1. I find the several hundred dollars trivial compared to the value I receive from owning them all. Also,

    Is this actually true? I've been hearing it, but I don't see a reason why they would do that. Do they want to watch us stare into the TV for hours?
