I actually get that impression more from the X1 fans towards PS4's capabilites. I know they like to poke fun at patches fixing everything, but essentially Microsoft did the same and built the 360's OS on patches every year. There's nothing wrong with that approach either as long as the hardware can support it. Don't get me wrong, Sony launching without CD support etc is pretty ****ing ridiculous in 2013, but they're easy to add back in.
Reacting to and supporting a fast online market is going to be important for both the X1/PS4 more than it ever was on last gens consoles. We all know Microsoft are much better at it, being a software company, but Sony aren't standing still either.
Exactly, I agree.
And yet some people say that about MS and the X1 or the ps4. As if MS supporting features like hooking up a cable box is a negative or it means nothing because something else could do it all down the line. This will apply to both consoles.
Too often, people get hung up on the x1 vs ps4 mentality where anything positive or negative said about one console is an attack on or defense of the other console.
