I have always, always been a Playstation boy, so I'd naturally go with the PS4. However, does anyone know if the PS4 will have PS3 compatibility? If it doesn't then I would consider switching.

Edit - a quick Google search is saying no. I've got about £900 worth of PS3 games that would be completely wasted, then. Fuck you, Sony!

"The technology is so advanced that some day we could easily stream PS1, PS2, PS3 and the PS Mobile games on any device, including the PlayStation 4," Perry added.

XBox Live is light years ahead of PSN, for the reasons Rambo stated. If however.. Playstation improve that aspect I'd consider switching back to Sony.

Although, personally I've had the same XBox since 2006, no red ring of death, no problems whatsoever. Microsoft well and truly delivered.

PS4...

I had a ps1. Ps2. Ps3.

I can't start cheating on them now...

And anyway, their system is apparently more powerful, not that it would make a difference to me as i couldn't get myself to switch anyway, but i prefer that the Ps4 seems to be focussing on the gaming aspect. Sure it has a Blu-ray player as well which is great etc, but i have a TV etc, so i don't need my playstation to do any of that stuff.

The new Xbox is a disappointment thus far. Here's' some of the things I didn't like.

1) Used games are blocked.
2) The can't play offline forever rumours were true, you have to log in once every 24 hours!
3) The lack of focus on gaming itself and rather all round entertainment is another unsurprising disappointment.
4) No backwards compatibility (tbh this one isn't that big a deal).
5) Not aesthetically pleasing, looks like an old 80's VCR.


That added with the lack of interesting exclusives compared to what Playstation has to offer, means I'll be sticking with Sony.

I think sony has really benefited from not showing the console even though at the time i was disappointed. Right now Xbox has pretty much shown most of thier cards and people are still weighing up the two, and sony still has one of the biggest things to show for E3.

I am not getting into a console war because they are absolutely childish! However, these two statements are wrong...

1. They are not blocked, but you will have to pay a fee to let it work on your console. The fee is yet to be announced, but I am guessing it will vary from 5-10 dollars!

2. This is bullshit, it wont be always-on nor will you have to log-in every 24hrs (that of the once a day login is even more ridiculous, not every turn on their Xbox everyday).

I voted both as I'm getting each eventually.

As a 10 year Xbox LIVE member and a huge online multiplayer gamer, LIVE trumps anything Sony offers so I'm getting the Xbox at launch.

I've always used my Playstation systems as a single player console.

I'm also not going to get into a console war for the same reason :). Just to point out though, I owned a 360 for a good few years so I'm not at all biased towards Sony. In regards to your response to my first point, even if that is the case, there still is a block out is there not?, albeit it can be lifted. And the second point is true check out Ign and all other gaming websites,

heres the exact quote from Kotaku...

Kotaku: If I’m playing a single player game, do I have to be online at least once per hour or something like that? Or can I go weeks and weeks?

Harrison: I believe it’s 24 hours.

Kotaku: I’d have to connect online once every day.

Harrison: Correct.

Well, technically it is 'blocked', but once you say like that it sounds as if you wont be able to play it no matter what (which isnt the case). And besides, we don't know if Sony will do the same (it might be something the developers asked both to do), so it may not even be a Xbox disadvantage and rather a NextGen one...

IGN and Gamestop are reporting this is bullshit and the Xbox One and PS4 will work on the same basis as the Current Generation (you will be able to use it offline no matter what)...

I am not arguing which one is better or anything like it, I am just discussing facts and how it will be or not! :)

As you say IGN and Gamestop are reporting the "once every 24hrs" info', not sure what makes you think that they're all wrong and you're correct.

Here's exactly what IGN are saying for those interested:

Does it require an internet connection?

YES. Xbox One will need to connect to the internet frequently in order to let you play games, watch TV or do anything else. According to Microsoft's Phill Harrison it will need to do so approximately every 24 hours at least, more frequently for games and services that rely more heavily on the cloud. If you are somewhere without any Internet connection at all, such as a military base, you will NOT be able to use Xbox One. It is reasonable to infer from this, and the other information Microsoft has provided regarding game-sharing, that Xbox One will need to connect to the Internet to authenticate you as well as connect to the Cloud. Games appear to be tied to your Xbox Live account, so without connecting to the Internet the Xbox One won't be able to verify that you own them.

Also just realized this too:

Can I play my friend's games on my console?

NO, not unless you're signed in as them. Otherwise you will have to pay, full-price, to access that game. The clearest stance on this comes from Eurogamer's interview with Harrison: "I can come to your house and I can put the disc into your machine and I can sign in as me and we can play the game. The bits are on your hard drive. At the end of the play session, when I take my disc home - or even if I leave it with you - if you want to continue to play that game [on your profile] then you have to pay for it. The bits are already on your hard drive, so it's just a question of going to our [online] store and buying the game, and then it's instantly available to play. The bits that are on the disc, I can give to anybody else, but if we both want to play it at the same time, we both have to own it. That's no different to how discs operate today." Microsoft's Major Nelson (Larry Hyrb) put it this way: "Should you choose to play your game at your friend’s house, there is no fee to play that game while you are signed in to your profile." But then if you go home and leave the disc with your friend, they will have to pay for that game if they want to play it on their own profile.

That sucks!

No, go to the video section and see they talking about it will not need an internet connection at all!

@Eviltwinz93, anyways, whatever!

The only misunderstanding is that you are thinking I am getting this out of the top of my head, but I am only posting the news I read/heard! :P

I think I'll leave you with this, again from IGN:

Is it always-online?

Technically NO, but it depends on your definition of the phrase. You will be able to watch TV and Blu-Ray movies and play single-player games without being connected to the Internet at all times, but as outlined above, the console will need access to the Internet at least once a day. Microsoft's Harrison phrased it thus, speaking to Eurogamer: "Some bits of the system will work offline. I think the key point to make is that Xbox One requires an internet connection, but it does not need to be connected all the time. We think that most of the biggest games on Xbox One and most of the games and experiences and services you want to use will be internet-connected."

So as I said before you do have to log in every 24hrs, you don't need constant internet connection, but you do have to log in every 24hrs. Tbh though I'm sure Microsoft may look to change this based on the generally negative response they're receiving in regards to this.

I can also understand some confusion though, IGN rightly pointed out "A bewildering flurry of stories has emerged from the Xbox One event, with Microsoft executives directly contradicting each other about several Xbox One features crucial to gamers".

Here's the full article on what they do and don't know:

This for me categorize as a simple NO. Because to be a yes, it would mean that if you do not log in every 24hrs, you would not de able to do anything on the console. But then again, this seems an absolute joke, because 95% of the owners dont turnd on their Xbox everyday (for instance, I dont turn on my PS3 everyday).

But you are right, it does make a lot of confusion. :D

EDIT: IGN UK and IGN USA are reporting two different things! :blink:

Sony want to do the same thing as Microsoft does with the blocked games, I think, because they said they will wait with this decission untill MS will reval what they're going to do then...

and always on is speculation, you will need to be on if you want to watch tv etc, as a stream... but not to play thats what I was getting out of all this.

The Xbox One is a really poor excuse of a Console. Specs wise it's almost entirely inferior to the PS4. You would've thought that with Microsoft being the Juggernauts they are would have trumped Sony in this Department.

The name itself is random and horrible. The looks of the console itself is also horrible. It looks like a VHS player. Throw in the always online connection and used game fees and it's a disaster.

They're focusing too much on everything except what it's meant to be, a Gaming device. Sony has added some awesome features and I really can't see Microsoft beating Sony this generation, especially as Microsoft's infamous lack of exclusives is bound to continue. All of course in my opinion :)

For the more casual gamer it is sufficient, but I've tried it out at a friends house and imo Nintendo will be shitting the bed once the PS4/Xbox One is released. For $400 I'd be expecting a system that is at least on par with the 360 (specs wise). I can see Nintendo following the steps of Sega and die out but I hope they surprise me with something at E3 because I do enjoy playing some of their exclusives.

The Wii U is better than the 360 specs-wise. And besides, I do hours of gaming every single day and the Wii U will be sufficient for me. They have a bunch of Mario-Zelda-Pokemon ect. exclusives and third-party support is slowly arriving.

Nintendo used to be good. Back when i was 4. Now its just got left behind. Not really Next gen in the slightest.
