PS4 vs Xbox One who wins?

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 11, 2013, 2:17 AM

If you like videogames like me, chances are you have been aware of what's happening in E3. Everyone's talking about it now. Since a few weeks ago with the whole TV TV TV TV TV TV TV SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS Xbox conference I have been pretty unhappy with things that are going on with Microsoft. You can't play used games, you need to log in to your internet at least once a day to play games, and it feels like you are actually RENTING a game rather than owning it if you know what I mean. OK then at E3 today they announce the price for the Xbox One.. wait for it. $499 USD. Mmmmk alright, I kinda expected it to be expensive.. but here's the part that surprised EVERYBODY, it costs 429 Pounds and 499 Euros. Wait a minute what? So I quickly pulled out my little pink calculator and found out that for the UK thats equivalent of $666 USD (Interesting its also the number for Satan) and 662 USD for the Europeans. Yo WHAT THE HELL? Why do the people at europe has to pay an extra $160 USD? Like does this even make sense? I don't get how Microsoft can even say this out loud, I don't get it at all... HOW DID YOU THINK THE PEOPLE WOULD REACT TO THIS??? Seriously Im speechless.. The only hyped moment was when they announced Killer Instinct, cos I used to play that game on the SNES, yeah I played it but wasn't really like into or anything, but Im sure the hardcore fans were hyped and Im happy for them about that. Funniest moment was when they played the Battlefield 4 Trailer but the sound wasn't working, the guy on stage didn't know what to do and there was a HUGE massive awkward silence, you could feel the tension in the room. At one point people started chattering and the guy is like 'Quiet', yo your presentation screws up and you are telling people to shut up? What a jerk, anyway you can watch that awkward moment here…

OK Sony time, you can play used games *Tick*, you don't need to be online 24/7 *Tick*, all the indie games developers are gonna work with PS3 *Tick*, its $100 CHEAPER than Xbox One *Tick Tick Tick*. Wait what's this? Kingdom Hearts III? SOLD! SONY I PRAISE YOU FOR ALL THIS. They did everything right and they effing know it. This trailer about game sharing from Sony is the ballsiest and the biggest F U to Microsoft I have ever seen. WATCH IT…  Yeah they know what the gamers are complaining about and they are willing to do something about it. YES.

This is a no brainer, PS4 is the one Im getting unless Xbox does something miraculous, but they have commited TOO MANY sins and its hard to redeem themselves ok? In the future you can expect some PS4 games fan art and 0% Xbox One games fan art, Im saying it right now. The game developers are gonna be making games for PS4, why would you not?

Im sorry but Microsoft is done.
Ry-Spirit cares.
By the way Nintendo I didn't see you, where you at? :I

Something that's overlooked at the US->Euro price difference:
It's always been that way.
We rarely have adjusted prices.
It's mostly 1:1, so yeah, we europeans are used to it - it wasn't a surprise at all (and PS4 did the same too).
from what I heard, Nintendo goes a bit more with the actual value, but if I compare prices on and, there's no huge difference.

Games for example are usually about 60 Euro too when they come to store. But I remember paying about 120 DM (= 60 Euro) for big SNES games (the few good RPGs we got came with a guide in a bigger box, because europeans were thought to not be smart enough for understanding RPGs :icontruestoryplz:), so that hasn't even changed.
But I thought a bit about it, and I think which many people overlook are the comparison. And I'm not 100% sure about it, nor do I have facts or statistics to back it up, but there might be two reasons for it:
1. The general earnings in Euro might be 1:1 to dollar, so we practically work the same for what we get.
2. Customs. I don't know if consoles are produced in europe, or if they get shipped here from Japan and US. So there's a custom fee that might get atop of it. And when I end up with customs on my US orders (or Japan orders), I often enough end up paying the same "amount" as it was in US Dollar. So this might be a reason.

So... yeah... either it's a fair calculation somewhere along the way or we get screwed all the time XD

Still, PS 4 won, and even with Microsoft's revamping, as long as I'm forced to have Hal 9000's little brother in my living room: X-Box, go home.

At least Microsoft removed all that DRM BS.

Haha I'd totally buy a ps4 but I got a ps3 like 2 years ago and i'm sure my parents wouldn't even buy the ps4. When I read that Kingdom Hearts III and the new FF game would be on it too it really made me want to cry. Meh.
And it's stupid that the people in europe have to pay more. >:/ Ps4 is so better than xbox one.
NingNinja Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Xbox is dead. PS4 will win by an absolute landslide, only crazy people and die hard Halo/Gears of War fans would even begin to consider buying an Xbox One.

Honestly were Microsoft drunk or something when they made these decisions? It's incomprehensible how dumb they are being.

I have even heard that Halo will be put on the PS4. If Xbox 1 crash as hard as everyone is expecting.

Wow you will be missing out on the story then.

it sucks though i bought a ps3 thinking halo3 was multiplatform

Nope and that must blow.
SinisterEternity Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
No matter that Kingdom Hearts III is gonna be on XBox One or not, PS4 / Sony still is much better than Microsoft on that :T
For all arguments you stated. Cx
so, PS4, nuff said.
MitchieMoe Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The reason he told them to be quiet is because some people were saying "boo"
I agree it went bad but I wouldn't be happy if someone was saying that to me in front of a stage
Besides that, I have no idea what to choice
Halo 5 is only for X1 which is sad but KH3 is also for X1, but I wouldn't want those sins on me if I buy one

The Xbox one Will be a flop. That isn't even a prediction.

Lots of people don't like XboxOne.
I'm one of those people.

Plus I think PS4 is winning.. Especially when they just mentioned the things that the fans want.. Which is the opposite of what Microsoft did.
Rikoei Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
well i was planning on getting a playstation 3 instead of playstation 4 cause its fairly new(it will also be less expensive when the new one comes out haha) and i find it stupid that all the good games are on the PS3 as in they started to put new better ones on it and BAM they get people to waste their money on a new brand new PS4 and its like wtf sony do you want to lose all your fans? i have just gotten into playstation products last year cause i got a PSvita for christmas i like it kinda though i wish there was more games that are new and good for it but i bet it will get there as long as they dont put a new expensive product out there like a Playstation portable but with a different name then i will be pissed

the point is i guess they want people to spend a million bucks on newer and newer videogame consoles because their companies are fading?(that does include the xbox ONE too) ugh idk
DragonMilo Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013
Microsoft selling more expensive stuffs to Europe... Ha. Here in Chile we recieve EVEN MORE expensive stuffs of anything from outside (specially in this city ;_;). Most ridiculous example was when the PS3 was released here, and I saw the price... 500k chilean pesos. That's 999USD. Also my 3DS cost 135k pesos when I bought it (after the price drop, there it cost 200k pesos). That's 270 USD.
I've seen and heard prices about other places but I'm not sure atm, except that in Latinamerica, we get a lot more expensive stuffs :I

Btw I was excited with Kingdom Hearts 3 too XD Too bad I don't have the money...
Temethria Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I think it's still too early to decide on a console, if you set aside the personal issues with microsoft..
I personally have always played on a computer, but i'm seriously considering a PS now, but honestly.. Microsoft is no newbie, they know the game and with actual billions of dollars at stake, i wouldn't even hesitate to believe they have a card up their sleeve, and as we all know, it's real easy to hop on the haters bandwagon xD, my take is that MS have a good reason for doing what they are doing, but might not have expected such a backlash..
All we can do is wait for release :)
Megabust-Triixster Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013
Kingdom Hearts 3?
*Tries to stuff money into the screen*

But yeah
This year it's all about Nintendo and Sony, Microsoft has kind of dropped out and have been a huuuge letdown to many.
Sony DECIMATED Microsoft, the PS4 beats the Xbox One, hands down.

1ST however, need to get myself a WiiU, THEN PS4.
Xbox One? What's that? I'm too busy fantasizing about awesomeness that was revealed.
Negai-Boshi Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Honestly, I've never really been a PlayStation fan (I have a PS2 that I bought to play Kingdom Hearts, and then played like 3 times total). I love my Xbox 360 and play that all the time. But the Xbox One is ridiculous. I feel like Microsoft forgot how video game systems work.... So I'll probably just stick with my old consoles and my 3DS for a long while....
S-Y-E Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've really tried to keep neutral towards both systems, I have friends who are going to buy the X-Box One. Which is nice because given the features *cough*Kinect I would never own one. Unfortunately, I really enjoyed the Halo single player and co-op and the Forza franchise and I've never really been too keen on the multiplayer for either of those games. (Those Halo multiplayers peoples are just too good) So that online connectivity really puts me off too. Did anyone really see anything for the 360? I don't recall anything really for it. Maybe they'll smarten up and release them for 360. Is there really any exclusive titles for the X-Box worth buying? I mean, Sony has Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, GT6 (Which is also multi-platform xD) All of which are 100% worth buying. And the PSN store, soo good. Clearly I'm going to get the PS4. Also the Wii U. Its worth buying just for Super Smash Brothers.
-Ramble over.
Victheman Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013

(and not to forget to mention Wii U and Super Smash Bros as well)

And not to mention that in Denmark you have 25% VAT. Xone is hella expensive, if you just want to play the games. Not so simply...

In addition to all that stuff you said about the Xbox One, I heard that they're also going to have a webcam attached to it for the government to try to find criminals.
You know, scan for face registration and yadda yadda.
And not just usual criminals, but they will be checking to make sure only a certain amount of people are in the room playing the game.
I'm not sure if this is rumor or fact, but that's RIDICULOUS, if you ask me.
Clever, to a certain degree, but at least keep that information to yourself.
The only people that are going to buy the next Xbox are people who haven't looked into it at all or are, for whatever reason, not deterred because of their unwavering loyalty to them.
I've never actually own a PS or Xbox, but the choice is obvious.
Even with the releasing price for the PS4, it's still cheaper than when they released the PS3.

Ry-Spirit Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
LOL yeah people are saying microsoft can see when you are changing with the kinect. But of cos its just a joke. all you need is one person finding out about this, and the whole company will be gone. i dont think thats a risk they are willing to make.
Pinebby Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Student Writer
That was my thought.
ALSO I'm confused about the connection between the Xbox and Microsoft.
like i said i've never had an xbox and really i'm just going off of what my boyfriend's dad said
which he heard from his other son

TheAveragePerson Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I used to be a big xbox fan, but this was such a slap to the face for xbox fans. The xbox one is a disaster. The xbox one is a failure, but the ps4 is not that much of a jump from the ps3. Compare the previous game console jumps from ps2 to ps3, or xbox to xbox 360, and this new console generation is looking pretty weak. I admit ps4 is a solid console, but I don't agree that it's as good as people think. Cashing in on microsofts failure and avioding thier own is not what makes a console great. 400 dollars for a new ps4 isn't worth it. PC gaming, on the other hand, seems to be the best option at the moment.
argosaxthechaos Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013
I'll tell you why PS4 is the cheaper one this time. Its simply a coup de grāce - they realised that microsoft pissed off almost all the gamers with their reveal. So knowing that not having such shit features sony realised most players will take their side. As a result they could also lower their prices because they have nothing to lose but everything to gain now. Sony really did a good job to keep it to themselves until microsoft did their move.
Ry-Spirit Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
im pretty sure Sony already had a price before xbox revealed theirs. unless they found out earlier. BUT i think the real reason why the xbox had to be this expensive is cos of the Kinect, a stupid attachment that they think very gamer needs but nobody really gives a damn about it. If they just kept it simple it wouldve been cheaper

No argument there, XBox looses, I think even the PS2 would win over Xbox one!! And then there's the added bonus of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III!
sukoshichu Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013  Student Artist
ps4 is winning hands down.
also this is the most amazing video in the WORLD: [link] sony informs us how to lend games to our friends in a quick tutorial. amazing.

people who buy xbone are either stupid or ignorant as hell. at first i was thinking 'oh only parents' then they said it was more expensive, i spat my coffee out across my keyboard and then said 'well there goes the parent argument'.
so, only stupid left.

XD You flame of the Xbox summed it up much nicer than mine... Thank goodness I never posted it XDD;

I'm surprised to see they're charging close to $200 more overseas! I'm waiting to find out they are still gonna charge people to have XBox Live (and internet connection) I haven't followed anything about it until today, as I was waiting to hear what they decided on doing before getting riled up.

XBox= ONE big money pit.

I'm actually excited to see the release of the PS4. The system itself looks pretty cool, and they didn't horribly screw up the controllers. I think eight processors is a bit excessive, but if the game companies make use of them all, then no harm done. It's obvious who is winning, even if Microsoft has more pre-orders. Just think of how pissed people will be with their $500 dvd players... I know I'll be laughing at one when he's up debt creek without a paddle.

But the nintendo fangirl I am, I still have alot of respect for Sony. I hope this gen does well for them! When we finally get our PS4, they should have tons of awesome games to choose from!

Everything is more expensive in the uk. It is priced about the same number in pounds, but is way more expensive. Look at any product or game system. Also, XBox 1 sucks ass, they are greedy mo fos.

I am a die hard Xbox fan, and when they announced the Xbox one and made all this bull crap to come with it. I instantly dropped all my thoughts about Sony and was like "So Sony...hows the weather today? Is that a new controller you have there? Looks Good with your main case, makes your eyes glow" Lol

I want an Xbox One simply because I like playing their dance games (Dance Central, Just Dance, Zumba) with the kinect for fitness reasons. I'm gong to wait it out and see what happens. There's no way I'm paying that much, though.

I won't get the PS4 only because I don't play any games on it, but my boyfriend likes PS4 so he might get one. WiiU will only be an option if they get those games we've all been waiting for!!!!
