    They're both a lot of money. Once they cross the $300 threshold, they're both too expensive IMO.

    Unfortunately, that's just what it costs.

    Personally, I think both companies should offer cheaper versions. Drop the Blu-Ray from each and set the Kinect cameras on fire. I'd be willing to download the games at release if they couldn't fit everything on a single disc. Or they could just do like they've been doing and include 2 discs, one which has to be installed.

    $100 isn't a significant difference when taken over the entire lifespan of the console. The root problem is that both companies are charging too much to begin with.

    Both companies took losses up front on their machines at the last release. I've seen estimates of like $100 to $150. Some well higher if they cost of Blu-Ray development and the cost of building a processor from the ground up is included for Sony.

    This time they aren't taking a loss from some of the estimates I have seen. Microsoft is looking at breaking even or possibly a small profit at the start. I've seen one estimate that has Sony's cost of manufacturing at $275. Neither is concerned with trying to win people over. I think both companies are content on their user base and this time they won't take a big hit up front to try and win people over.

    I probably won't get either for some time. I'm gonna play some of the current gen games they have that look good. Getting Arkham Origins probably today and I'll probably snag BF4 next week. Not sure bout COD. I didn't like the last one at all. They have to win me over for me to buy Ghosts.

    Preordered COD Ghosts and Destiny. Also picked up a spare controller. May pick up infamous or watch dogs at some point.

    I have the PS4 paid off. Most of it was paid off by taking in old 360 games I no longer played and getting 30% more credit because I brought so many in that were just sitting there.

    I have the PS4, an extra controler, BF4, Ghosts, and Madden 25 all pre-ordered and paid for that I'll get the night that the PS4 comes out.

    I also have money on Watch Dogs and Destiny for the PS4 but those don't come out till next June. I've got I think 10 on both.

    The only thing that I can't get right now for the PS4 that I really want is the new Batman game. It's not coming out on either of the new systems so I'm going to have to get it for the 360, which I'm giving to my kids after my PS4 comes out, and play it on there. That was disappointing.

    No Titanfall on PS4 ever (per EA). And no external storage or MP3's on PS4 either.

    Wonder if that will change anyone's mind.

    Titanfall is coming to 360 and PC though, so it's not that big of a blow.

    The biggest disappointment for me was no more media streaming from PC to the console. That's a bummer. Not enough to change my mind on it, but close.

    I wanted to play Titanfall but I'm not wanting to play it bad enough to go with a Xbox 1. If I really want to play it bad enough I'll get it for the 360 and try it out there but I doubt I'll even do that. Too many other great games out there to worry about that stuff.

    Hate on me all you want, but I think Titanfall would be worth the purchase of an XB1 on launch day alone. Forget about the Kinect and Voice crap, this looks like a legit nextgen console. Thank God I can afford both, and watch from the gaming Mt. Olympus at the mortals below.

    But isn't Titanfall not due out until next year? I'm thinking of holding until more of the exclusive next gen games are out. I'm not seeing too much of this outside of KillZone, Halo 5, Titanfall, 1808 game, etc. I was imagining many more next gen exclusives to be ready for the launch or even Christmas season but that doesn't seem to be the case either...Looks like next summer and beyond might be the time when the next gen exclusives start becoming more common.

    Battlefield 4 is getting torn apart with the reviews. I played the beta and didn't like it. Nothing beats BC2 or B3

    Don't know why, the game is great. Been playing since launch. Frame rates are unplayable at times, but that doesn't happen very often. It's built for the PS4. I'm having a blast playing it. The new customization is nice. Maps are fun. More destruction. I haven't read the reviews, but I'm going to keep playing it. And I played BF3 pretty non stop for the last 2 years.

    I could go with both but I don't see the point. I have a PS3 and Xbox now and I only play one and not the other so I'd be buying the second one just to say I did. Which is a waste of time and money to me.

    I played the beta and loved it. I haven't played the game yet because I am waiting for the PS4 to launch. There was no point in buying it to play for two weeks on the Xbox before the PS4 came out.

    Sounds like they're going to add later on. And not concerned about external storage because unlike xbone you can swap the internal hard drive.

    Beyond that the fact the Xbox is settling for 720p says a lot to me. Especially when a COD developer mentioned they had to make it 720 to stabilize the frame rate. And in an effort to fix it MS denied them using resources dedicated to Kinect.


    Meanwhile every PS4 game is in 1080p but Battlefield which is 900p and 720 p on xbox. After buying all the other Xboxes at launch and a Playstation later in the cycle this time around its Ps4 first.

    Getting a comparable PC would set you back quite a bit more. Personally I think the ps4 is well priced and the xbone would be without the kinect.

    I am still confused on which one to buy. Have never been a fan of Sony's controllers, always have had XBOX. I lost track of what was changed prior to launch, heard all of the reviews and still have no clue which way to go.

    As long as I can play BF, CoD and Halo, I will be ok.

    I did 360 this last time because I felt it was better than PS3...I wound up with both eventually. This time around it's pretty clear that PS4 is the way to go and thats why I went that direction. The controlers aren't bad because they made them a little bigger. I've got one already, I preordered an extra one so I got to take mine home early. It's got a nice feel to it.
