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 www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hs7Osl…

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 www.youtube.com/watch?feature=…  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 amazon.us and amazon.de, 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.

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.

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.
