Added a bunch of features.

 

Unlike the Xbox One you didn't need to download it to use the PS4 and the download could run in the background if you were connected to the internet while using/playing on the PS4.

Looks like you couldn't play online without the patch. So not just some bunch of features.

here are the real statements without the sensationalism

 

 

 

"Xbox One has sold in over 5 million units since launch and engagement has been high with users spending nearly 5 hours per day on their console," said Hoot. "We will continue to extend the unique entertainment value proposition of Xbox One, particularly in markets outside of the U.S. where some services aren’t as mature.

 

Xbox 360 sales exceeded our expectations this quarter. And across the platform, Xbox Live members continued to embrace the service with transactional revenue growing 17%. We do expect to work through some inventory in Q4.

 

"Devices and Consumer licensing, we expect [Q4] revenue to be $4.1 billion to $4.3 billion. In hardware, we expect revenue to be $1.3 billion to $1.5 billion in what is a seasonally slower hardware quarter.

 

"This number also reflects channel inventory drawdown for Xbox consoles. In devices and consumer other, we expect revenue to be about $1.9 billion."

Weaker hardware for a significantly higher price than the ps4

Worse multiplatform titles due to that hardware

Kinect whether you want it or not

No worthwhile exclusive titles for nearly the whole year before, maybe, the fall season

The damage microsoft did to themselves with their mess of a reveal

 

Those could be a few things.

 

1. Fair

2. Fair for now but not as big of a deal in reality as it is on paper.

3. Not required to be connected, so I guess you are talking about price. If they sold the Xbox One for $399, would you still complain about the Kinect if they're essentially including it for free?

4. Opinion, not fact.

5. This is probably the biggest culprit, besides price.

Topic cleaned. Reminder to you all:
 

Do not flame any member directly or indirectly, no matter how right or wrong you believe that member to be.

Do not call out another member by name in a negative fashion. Even if you just want to say, "I told you so" to somebody specifically, do not do it. This sort of behavior can and will cause a snowball effect of flaming and simply cannot be tolerated.

All I see as a potential buyer is that there're no games yet that would tear me away from my PC.

 

They're sitting on a whole lot of nothing so far.

 

Both of them are. This generation can be summed up by:

Do you like inFamous?
- Yes -> Buy PS4
- No -> Don't buy anything.

The lineup throughout most of this year is no opinion, it's fact. Feel free to look it up yourself.

Inventory draw down could also mean transferring to other markets. Anyone in purchasing / sales knows that.

Whether or not something is worthwhile is an opinion, not a fact. There are exclusives, and some of them may be worthwhile to some people.

There's exclusives, with an s? Last i checked the only one that had a date(which has come and gone) was kinect sports, which is hardly a system seller. Anything else exclusive i can think of is still a "maybe in 2014" title.
