I could buy a new computer today, that costs less than the machine I built 5 years ago, has better specs, and does exactly the same things (same os), does that mean it's not good?

 

I think that is a good analogy. PS4 feels like upgrading the GPU in your PC, not a new console. Not yet anyhow.

Pretty sure that's what it was meant to be.  An upgrade from the PS3.. and so far it has been exactly that.

Eye Toy was around since PS2 "although it is still just an accessory", voice control "I would say it is still missing, it is so limited", remote play is cool "if you have a vita, I do not", second screen is cool if you have a supported smart phone "I do not", party chat is cool but a feature you just expect since it has been around forever. I will give you the sharing feature though.

 

Playing games while you download them, companion apps, being able to play for your friend remotely or join into their game via the PSN Network, backward compatibility via Gaikai, face login, video editing, headphone jack on controller, 4K resolution and 1080p native on games, etc..

 

I could keep going, but I'm guessing you are trying to compare new features with what the Xbox One brings to the table... Apart from hdmi splitter, coaxial tv input and snap apps its basically an upgraded 360. So I believe the PS4 wins here in the new features department which is probably one of the reasons why it won the Console of the Year award.

 

Oh and just to follow your lead in rebuttals; I have an amp which does the hdmi splitting (And gives great 7.1 channel sound at the same time), all TV's have a coaxial tv input (so console having one becomes redundant) and my tv also has a tv guide. I'll give you snap apps, even though I would rather open up a webpage on my tablet rather than snap internet explorer onto the screen of my gaming console to browse a webpage and play a game at the same time.

Good that this is now finally settled. Everyone get back to gaming. :laugh:

 

It's kind of funny.  I had brought up the game console argument a few times in the ps4 vs XBone threads.  Every single time I was shot down, with others saying that it's not about being a game console, it's not just gamers that care, etc.  However one of the points is the fact it's got a focus as a game console.

 

Well what everyone was saying is covered well by your post below...sort of. Games console are more than consoles these days sort of like how mobile phones are more than phones.

 

Does everything I expected it to do.   Games? Check.  Bluray Movies? Check.   Netflix? Check.  Web Browsing? Check.   

 

 

PS3 didn't have share feature, party chat, controller-less motion control, voice control, 1080p gaming, remote play, second screen (smart phones, tablets), touchpad on controller, etc.

 

PS4 added a few features actually.

I keep reading this... when did PS4 get controller-less motion control? :huh: A link or youtube video will be helpful.

Xbox One:

Playing games while you download them. Check

companion apps. Check

being able to play for your friend remotely or join into their game via the POS Network. Totally possible, and probably better

backward compatibility via Gaikai. This is not backwards compatibility, this is a game streaming service, and it's ****.

face login. Check

video editing. Check

headphone jack on controller. Check (simple adaptor needed for regular cans)

4K resolution and 1080p native on games. Check

Here are some videos of Just Dance 2014 on PS4.

This is on the official Just Dance TV site and as you can see no controller is being used on the PS4. Its just the camera and motion detection.

Playing games while you download them. Check

companion apps. Check

being able to play for your friend remotely or join into their game via the POSN Network. Totally possible, and probably better

Not sure why you put Xbox One: at the start of this as the Xbox doesn't have these features.

 

You cant play on a friends game remotely or directly join them in their game, adapter is required for standard headphone jack on controller, no backward compatibility what-so-ever and its 720p native on the Xbox One not 1080p for gaming.

Also doesn't exist yet, and won't for a long time since it doesn't work yet, just like onlive.

Can someone help me decide if this post is sarcasm or not? (including Just Dance 2014 controller free motion controls on PS4).

 

If this is real then my iPad is now 100% "backwards" compatible with all Windows games/apps via remote desktop.

PS3 required a move controller to play motion controlled games, the PS4 does not.. What exactly do you need clarification on?

Wait, so you're saying Forza 5 is 720 native... At least know what you're talking about...

It's a bit silly to call either console of the year, both are missing features if you live outside NA. The console of the year should be awarded to either xbox 360 or ps3 not some 1 month old consoles :p

Maybe not Forza but another Xbox Exclusive Dead Rising 3 - http://www.cinemable...-One-60388.html

Assasins Creed and Ryse arent 1080p. Killer Instinct, TitanFall, COD and BF4 are also 720p on Xbox One.
