    The PS4 looks f*cking sweet

    And once again, the "big exclusives" from Microsoft are first person shooters. Surprise, another Halo game.

    Microsoft screwed up bigtime with this goofy ass decision.

    Not only can you not borrow a game from a buddy, but how the hell does this effect people with subscriptions to stuff like Gamefly?

    Wow...and 399.00 - 100.00 less than the XB1.

    I give MS about 48 hours before they try to backtrack on their used game approach.

    Not only that, but the 'always on' connecting to the internet BS is a joke.

    Frankly the console looks almost exactly like a XB1, except slanted.

    Anyway, hell they won this as soon as they said no pricing on used games....knocked it out of the park.

    Hell the PS3 was 599.00 brand new in 2005; and MS undercut them big time. The PS3 had a small number of games at launch, and it lagged behind ever since.

    'Destiny' looks just amazing....prety obvious that it is Sony's real answer to the Halo franchise.

    So excited right now, don't care how many people call me a nerd.

    And it's easily the more powerful system with (IMO) the much better exclusive titles.

    Sony is saying "We don't give a sh*t if we take a profit loss, we're more interested in re-establishing ourselves as the king of gaming".

    I'm loving this.

    It does sound promising. Sony was the king of everything, then the king of nothing, now maybe starting to focus and get at least one product category right!

    Yep

    Back in the day, they owned everything in electronics.

    TV's, stereo systems, game systems, etc.

    After today, I'd be shocked if they don't rule this generation of game consoles with an iron fist.

    Sales of the WiiU have been sh*tastic and the XBOX ONE doesn't seem like it has much of a chance after the info that has come to fruition over the past few hours.

    i may be alone on this, but i think Xbox is going to be sweet. I preordered both the xbox and the PS4 just because i typically own both consoles...but i must say i am a lot more excited about the xbox then most people i hear talk about it (couldn't care less about the used games, or the "big brother")

    check out the gameplay about 4:50min in...i think it looks amazing.

    BTW watch dogs is going to be a must have. if anyone hasnt seen the gameplay demo at the PS4 event today:

    I've owned every Playstation and XBOX system as well.

    But after I had three of the 360's get that red ring crap, I gave up on Microsoft systems.

    Hell, my original PS1 still runs just fine damn near 20 years later.

    And as I said earlier, I just don't care for the majority of 1st person shooters and that's Microsoft's claim to fame.

    They're just all the same to me.

    Shoot all the bad guys, and move on to the next level. Shoot all the bad guys, and move on to the next level.

    Rinse, wash, repeat.

    It's beyond repetitive and tedious IMO.

    Ryse looks pretty sweet, but other than that, I wasn't impressed with any of the XBOX exclusives.

    The PS4 is the more powerful system (hands down), has the better exclusives IMO, and is $100 cheaper.

    To me, it's a no brainer.

    And I really wish they would've shown some exclusive video of "Deep Down".

    That game looks f*cking amazing judging by the initial trailer.

    Really now?

    Granted, I've been a loyal PS fan for years now, but nothing Microsoft has done in the last 24 hours has convinced me to buy their system.

    And I was really close to buying the 360, I really was - and the only reason I was even thinking of doing so was because of the Skyrim DLC's.

    However the 360 or PS3 isn't a 'fanboy' decision; it was more of a gaming lifestyle decision.

    Most people who favor the 360 do so because their online gaming service via XBL is far superior to PSN's, and there are also far more people playing multiplayer games on the 360.

    The majority of the games I play are single player (Skyrim, Fallout, Bioshock, etc), so why should I plunk down 60.00 for a service I don't use?

    From what Ive read on other forums, the gameplay and performance on most titles is nearly identical on the 360 and PS3, so why should I bother to make the change? If my kids really wanted a Kinect to play Just Dance or Kinectimals I would get a system in a heartbeat.

    If Fallout4 was a XB1 exclusive, the same would apply

    All of these links I've posted in the Video Game thread (I'm the only one that posts in it lately it seems) I've yet to see a rebuttal from you or anyone else on what I have said so far is factually incorrect, so why are you calling me the fanboy?

    Maybe you can try to convince me and others that what MS is trying to pull off is going to be good for gaming, and good for the consumer.

    I like Microsoft, I really do, but for now they can stay in the Office, they haven't given me any reason to put them in my living room.

    PS4 isn't going to be taking that much of a profit loss tbh. They may be selling each PS4 at a small loss (like $10-15 each) but not the $200-300 loss per PS3 at launch.

    Sony exec's said so themselves.

    Haha you obviously never had to put your PS1 sideways so the disc would spin. Google it, that's a true story. I also had a PS3 go bad on me, and an Xbox with the RROD...nothing is perfect.

    Why is playstation the more powerful system? The only spec difference is the type of RAM from what I saw. Again, XBOX is getting a bad rap.

    XBOX = Geno Smith. At some point it became trendy to **** all over it, but it may shock people in practice.
