Besides PS4 vs XB1 threads break down in to a really ugly sports rivalry.

 

You look at the pro's and con's, the exclusive's each system has, likely to have, and see what your friends are getting.

Enjoy the console you want to own and play.

Yeah... for me it depends on what all my friends get. I'm thinking of getting XB1 with Titanfall and if i'm the first one then all others will get XB1.

I really hope people can be civil about this stuff.

My big take away so far is that both consoles are good choices. Both have a strong base that will improve over time.

But, both also have features missing or features that need improving out of the gate. They also both have a decent launch lineup, but that doesn't mean you will find something you like. Its not shocking that the two are scoring close together.

So I'll echo the idea that you can really just focus on the games/features you like and go with that console. You don't need to buy at launch unless you just have to have a launch title or have to have the latest tech. Both system will just be so much better come the fall of next year. Bugs worked out of the software, new features added, and a stronger library of games.

the verge and their scoring is full of **** as always. xbox scores less for controls,and 2 points docked for design. same score for heat/noise,and only one extra point for software.

 

anyways, I like what gizmodo said,because its true

Good reviews for both. I think I'll probably stick with my PS4 order for now and maybe pick up an Xbox One next year. It's media features are essentially useless to me as I record everything I want to watch and only watch a couple of sporting events live. If it could interact with the DVR, or record itself, then I'd probably be much more keen. The SkyDrive integration is nice, although I hate to think of the upload sizes... already have to process all my photos before uploading them to save time (stupid 512Kbps upload speed).

the verge and their scoring is full of **** as always. xbox scores less for controls,and 2 points docked for design. same score for heat/noise,and only one extra point for software.

My advise to anyone would be to ignore the scores and just read the reviews. Review scores are always arbitrarily stupid.

Read the Polygon review for Xbox One. Some of my favorite bits:

On Kinect:

 

The good news? Issues aside, it really works. In fact, the fastest way to navigate the Xbox One's user interface is via the incredibly robust suite of voice commands. The friction that limited voice commands on the Xbox 360 with Kinect is all but gone. Now you can order the system to go from one app to another from anywhere

Might as well dump this here, a spec comparison

As the PS4/X1 use the same CPU, I wonder if Sony can clock it up a bit at a later date.

People,

 

It's all so simple, like with phones, tablets and pc's.....

 

Buy the one you want, and enjoy the games, watch TV and all that is possible with it.

 

Different people, different needs and tastes.

That depends on if Sony built the ps4 with the cooling headroom to handle a higher clock.

MS was able to overclock both the gpu and cpu due to their cooling system (bigger case, larger fans, etc). The question is, does Sony have that option with their smaller design?

Unconfirmed rumors point that it might run 1.6 but be able to "turbo" up to 1.8.

Supposedly, both consoles support the turbo, but I haven't seen anyone confirm that.
