I don't mean to start an arguemnt, but I'm sure one will start up anyways.
So sorry In advance.
So I have the PS4 Destiny Exclusive preorder, but now I'm re-evaluating my decision. I have many friends on Xbox Live and zero on Playstation Network. I planned to play Destiny on the PS4 and other games that will eventually come out for it. Well now I realized that it's probably a waste of money because there's no games for PS4 and as mentioned before I have more friends on Xbox Live.
So I can either get rid of the preorder, assuming I can do that, and just get the Xbox One. Or I can get the PS4 because its Destiny exclusive and look cool with it.
I've also asked friends on Xbox Live who have an Xbox One questions about the system and they all love it... well obviously since they are Xbox fans. The Kinect doesn't seem worth it to me, but it cost more to get an Xbox One with out it??? Is that right??? How is the Kinect? Are the voice and facial recognition worth it? Also does anyone have a PS4 and can maybe counter argue?
I know for sure that I'm going to get a Xbox One for sure and a PS4, I just don't know what to get first. Right now I'm leaning more towards the Xbox One, but like I said this PS4 is exclusive! And I've never gotten anything exclusive before.
Oh and before anyone shits on me for buying either one of these, I'm getting a WiiU because reasons.
$100 less to get Xbone without kinect. I like my Kinect but if you don't wanna spend the extra it's no problem. Destiny is also on Xbox One, and I've been playing the beta all day. It's top.
I'd get the Xbone first. Much better exclusives. Pic related, I shot this in Forza 5.
Ive been a xbox fanboy all my life and I betrayed microshill when I got a ps4 this year. Nothing feels the same to me. Should I just keep it or trade it in for a bone? Is it better to keep the ps4 for graphics and MGS?
Yeah I'm aware that Destiny is on Xbox One as well which is why I'll most likely get it first. So are you saying things look better on the Xbox One...?
Humans. People. Friends. You know, just people like you and me that decided to get one console and not the other.
There are games I want to play on the PS4 but they don't come out for awhile. Xbox One I can at least play game with friends while waiting for those exclusives.
I've never really been a fangirl of either. I got a xbox 360 first and then a ps4 way later (like 2 years ago) and I've played single players games on the PS4. So I'm thinking I"ll do the same with the new consoles.
But what about my cupcake dildo?
Xbox will have the much better online.
Ps4 will have somewhat better hardware.
The exclusives on xbox's side look admittedly a lot better at this point, at least coming up.
So it's your own choice.
Get new friends. I legitimately question people who bought an Xbone; it's more expensive than a PS4 and it's shitter hardware. Any person who bought an Xbone is a dumb fuck who either didn't do their research before making a purchase or was blinded by brand loyalty. Or both. No excuses.
51 reasons not to touch the xbone
I acknowledge some of these arent relevant anymore
Since you already have multiple friends it seems that own one console, the choice is already made for you. Unless theres something that you really want right now for PS4, go with Xbone.
XBOX Live on on the one is garbage.
Tell your friends they are fucking faggots.

> XBL is better
This is such a load of bullshit. There is nothing wrong with PSN at all. I've never had any problems with it. Where the fuck did the whole XBL> PSN shit start? Is this some relic from last decade? Another ebin maymay like no gaems?
Get with the times.
The xbox does have Killer Instinct, though, which I admit is bretty gud. That's the only exclusive worth a shit.
I have both systems. They're both shit. Get a PC.
Im literally only buying it because it may be fun to play with friends.
Ugh then idk. Maybe I'll buy the Xbone and just keep the exclusive PS4 on preorder and pay it off by month or something.
So how many of those aren't true anymore? I know a couple of them that arent... but jsut reading that makes me just iffy to buy an xbox one. Then again I'm only buying it to play with friends. Shits lonely on PS network.
Part of the reason why I want a Xbone.
THere are games I want for the PS4, but they're not coming out till later this year. So I feel its better to get a Xbox One now...
I was on Xbox 360 online since high school and then I finallly got a PS4 about two years ago. I feel like the online was better on the 360, at least more convenient. But I don't have a lot of friends on the PS Network so I didn't really get to use the PS network a lot.
I don't care that you suck Sony and Microsoft's dick (even though that makes you a huge faggot and tool) but you are 100% retarded for preordering anything ever.
It almost never works out and you always end up being the beta tester for smart people who purchase later.
It's even dumber for multiplayer games because you have no idea if that game will fail and become irrelevant within months or not.
You are the cancer.
>fire up Forza 5 to see if they have my car (Mini Cooper 02)
>Two Minis and one is goddamn mother fucking DLC
>Fire up GT6 to see what they have
>'02 Mini cooper and about 11 others, none of which are DLC
Seriously, fuck Forza.
If you get an Xbox One, you're paying for shittier hardware and online on par with PS4 (they're both buggy as fuck). What exclusives look better on the Xbone? Sunset Overdrive which hasn't come out and I guess Deadrising 3 which is coming to PC? Ryse is shit, it only looks nice.
There's no real advantage to getting either console except for specs and probably a more dedicated developer base (which no one can tell as of right now). Get a Xbone if you're really that inclined to play with your friends but that's the only thing it has going for it right now.
It comes from the fact that the xbox one is primarily developed as an online gaming machine.
Microsoft have invested well over 15 billion into their Azure cloud service and xbox live is one of features it benefits.
Quantum Break is being made with the ENHANCED TV concept in mind, which means it will be gimped and short, not worth a day one purchase.
Fable is garbage, should never be taken seriously.
Halo is garbage, full stop.
Killer Instinct was and is lame.
Gears is beyond dead. And I got over 3000 Cheevos combined in the 3 games.
Titanfall is trash, a total dud.
Dead Rising and Ryse are crap too, come on son.
Crackdown will be nice, but it ain't coming out til next year at minimum.
The rest of those titles will likely end up as unsuccessful one-offs like the early 360 exclusives, so I know not to get excited for them.
Xbone currently has more games I'm interested in coming only to it (D4, Scalebound, even Sunset Overdrive looks good), meanwhile PS4 has nothing.
But the console is weaker than the PS4 and it has half the sales, meaning in a year or so much more PS4 exclusives will be announced.
Unfortunately I jumped the gun and got a PS4 on launch but whatever.
Cheaper to begin with
Software is a matter of opinion
If you enjoy Sony exclusives
Better multi plats
Not microsoft windows 8 look and feel
Focuses on games and not an entertain box
Doesn't appear to be a VHS player from the early 90's
Forced DRM on reveal
Online required reveal
No used games reveal
>Now becomes Xbox 180 realizing nobody was gonna buy this shit
>all of said above reduced
The matter of the fact is Microsoft was going to force you to do this and there was some people that was absolutely fine with it
>If you are ok with this rape without lube
Microsoft exclusives if you enjoy them
Kinect (if you enjoy that)
TV cable capability
Lots of media type shit
Voice commands are pretty cool
Windows 8 look, which can be improved (hopefully)
That's about all I can think of, faggot
You should stop using the word "garbage" as a way to describe things. Your mother found you in the garbage outside of taco bell when you were a baby, so you might want to show some respect to the trash industry for helping you.
You can always make new friends. And these fucking sonyggers are the finest people of them all.
>implying anyone was talking about ryse
Classic sonypony misdirection, of course anyone who calls out your shit system is an xbot or a nintendrone. Clearly the PS4 can't just be a poor platform on its own.
If you play with your friends all day. Xbone would be the correct choice for you. However PS4 is simply a better system and is less money. Don't fool yourself in thinking Xbone is equivalent to a PS4 because it isn't enjoy downgraded multiplats and Xbone ditching the system in 3 years like they did with the 360.
the consoles are more or less the same, just get a bone so you can play with friends because that's really the most important factor.
I'll most likely never own either, but if I was forced to get one I'd get a kinectless bone. The controller, while not as good as the 360 is still great. I think the ps4 controller feels cheap. And gold is basically ps+ at this point
literally the most biased post on the internet.
>mfw your mother birthed you while playing Sneak King
Holy shill, Batman!
OP, get the fucking Playstation, do you really want to get an NSAbox? If you don't think they're going to implement all that DRM anyway once they have a decent installbase you're actually retarded.
I think the bungie devs said the Xbone version of the beta is running on an older model and the full release is still 1080p. that being said, they both look the same, albeit a bit oversaturated on the xbone.
>free to play capcom game
>being better than anything
lel, let it die is a f2p game by gungho as well, with suda only producing.
I guess that's telling us a lot about the future of sony's games.
>load up GT6
>1000+ cars and 900 cars are shit ps2 ports
>tfw your dream car sounds like a fax machine
>load up Forza 5
>all cars premium
>tfw your ears cum at the sound of your actual car sounding like an actual car
It's actually a pretty factual post. You have to be an absolute retard with no principles to buy an Xbone after what they were going to do. Even after all the back-pedalling, it's the inferior choice.
haha for awhile I thought the xbone was a huge "always watching" console, but I think that's a retarded thought. I just don't care for the kinect, but the fucker cost more without it? That's so fuckin stupid!
OH MAN, ONE GAME THAT SORTA LOOKS AS GOOD
Sunset Overdrive is the only one of those that looks any good. Master Chief Collection is kind of cheating considering they're just borrowing games from a time when Xbox had good exclusives.
Don't see much of a difference to be honest, maybe if someone made a side-by-side comparison instead or something.
Also, devs said the beta would be running 900p I think but when the game actually releases, it will be 1080p.
Look it up if you don't believe me.
I'm looking forward to how all those games will pan out except Halo.
If you seriously have hope for Halo after the monstrosity that Halo 4 was, you literally have to have autism or be under 16.
Por que no los dos?
Well great advice, opinions and shit. I like it. I'm still thinking about it now.
So fuck it! What if I just got a PC!? Fucking games are coming out for that too arent they? I get a PC and one console.
That looks almost like a photo. They just need to fix the shitty textures in the front and make the geometry slightly smoother, you can still see the vertices in some supposedly round edges.
Early access games, mostly, the occasional triple A title. I mean there's GTA V, which.. came out last year for consoles. There was also Watch Dogs.. which arguably was pretty bad. also multiplat.. hmm.. yeah.
Do have to admit that Forza 5's car selection is lacking. They kinda fucked us over. Not an Xbone fanboy by any count, I play GT6 a lot too and they do have a better selection.
I'm pretty hyped for it honestly, their removing loadouts, focussing on arena multiplayer and are implementing a better ranking system, the three things which I think were largely the issue with 4.
Also, the japanese guy is lead composing the entire game which is a benefit.
Anyone who is overly positive for either side is a fanboy. Too many people only own one of the systems (which isn't even a bad idea, go with one or the other, maybe a Wii U if you love Nintendo games, and then just stick with a PC) and just blindly shit over the other one because they don't own it so they don't want it to do better than the one they have.
If you're really looking into Destiny, and most/all of your friends are getting it on Xbox, then just get the Xbox. Unless there's other PS4 games you really want to play too
not like there are many right now
Honestly I think the PS4 edges out the Xbone, not as much since they're the same price without Kinect, but still.
>Halo 5, Halo the master chief collection, Killer Instinct
So you really have
Scalebound, Crackdown, Quantum Break, Phantom Dust
And again, I love Remedy, but you can go ahead and listen to the Dev interviews. The design choices were heavily driven by MS PR during the TV TV TV phase. If you are also familiar with the Episodic nature of Alan Wake, and how it was partly a TV show, then you should be able to extrapolate that this is more of a "LA Noire" than it is a "GTA V".
It will be guided, heavily scripted, and not worth full price.
Phantom Dust looks really weak. it's an exclusive, but a boring one. Scalebound seems like this gen's HEAVENLY SWORD but with a homo-turok vaseline sheen.
What else do you guys have?
My impartial opinion is don't get either one they are shit at the moment, but if you really want to get one, go with the Xbone. Not because of hardware, they are both mid-tier PCs, not because of the exclusive, personally the Bone has a few more titles that interest me, already out and coming, but neither console is better than the other in this regard, but because your friends have one, that's the real reason to get a console these days.
>mfw SSOD, The Collection and Horizon 2 will net me over 300 hours of game time until 2015
Best combination for 2014-2015 is PS4 plus PC. You can get a Wii U if you're into Nintendo games, that's a personal preference.
Plus the exclusives coming to the Xbone will most likely go to PC after release, just like Deadrising 3.
Why? It looks pretty good has far has fighters go.
>Phantom Dust looks really weak
>Scalebound seems like this gen's HEAVENLY SWORD but with a homo-turok vaseline sheen.
There's not even gameplay out. Stop pulling shit out of your ass.
OP in all honest.
Playing with friends > anything else.
Once your online playing with your buds, you will forget even considering buying the other console because your busy have f-f-fun.
Also, if your still having trouble deciding, just look at the Xbox360 and PS3 and their progress through the years. Each system had their ups and down but in my opinion, the Xbox360 made the most progress.
The Xbone and PS4 are both shit, but if this actually happened for one of them, I would but the first one to do it.
I fucking hate achievements and trophies so god damn much. I just want to the games, no extra bullshit.
>the Xbox360 made the most progress.
How? It started great with plenty of exclusives and the best version of third party game. But in the last years it seems MS is giving up on the system already.
I seriously hate that penis head design on the ps4 controller on the handles. What the fuck were they thinking?
They usually make the best designed stuff but they really dropped the
ballon this one
I do like Forza but it's fucking infuriating trying to dig through the car selection when it's literally 50% DLC. At least with GT6 they may not be premium but you don't have to pay another $5.99 for any interesting cars.
Microshaft tried to make all their release games full price f2p and it bit them in the ass, thank god.
How? Cars sound like vaccums, handling is ass and feels borderline arcade, damage system is laughable, having 30x Skyline's is a waste and only know do they have a suspension system, that still needs some tweaking, and it literally still has PS2-era car textures and only a few interiors. The only thing it has over Forza is less DLC, something I really hate in Forza.
It lacks the depth of the reboots of SF and MK.
It's a DLC nightmare, meaning no real meaningful content or progression.
Lot's of sparkly lights though, just like the Iron Dome!
You have no idea how fast I could buy an Xbone for that.
It drives my insane not being able to delete and disable things like achievements, notification, message, etc.
I want as much control over my account, if I'm required to have an account for something.
PC herebut between the 2 systems I found it pretty funny how the PS3 recovered after years and years of being shit on. 360 got some great sequels and even new IPs on it, not to mention usually, if not pretty much always having better looking multiplats, but it seemed to lose steam later on in its life - as opposed to the PS3 which actually started to do really well. I won't even get started on the RROD, seriously ever fucking person I spoke with had at least one die on them, including a roomate. That was pretty fucked up hardware wise.
Disabling isn't enough, mate. I want them fucking gone.
I don't want everyone do know every god damn thing I do in every fucking game I play.
Plus, it just makes me feel compelled to collect them all and I don't have time for that shit.
>OP, get the fucking Playstation, do you really want to get an NSAbox? If you don't think they're going to implement all that DRM anyway once they have a decent installbase you're actually retarded.
>Implying that Sony, the biggest RIAA and MPAA contributor and lobyist for DRM in the media industry, wouldn't do it first once they had the install base
They waited till people had the console till TVTVTV and Ads. DRM is next.
The slow boil always works
There's a huge list of shit you can disable from getting notifications from on the PS4, it's literally a screen full of options. It will only disable the pop ups, you can still see them when you open the notifications tab in the "dashboard".
>I won't even get started on the RROD, seriously ever fucking person I spoke with had at least one die on them, including a roomate. That was pretty fucked up hardware wise.
Once again Sony is late to the party, YLOD are becoming rampant now. They are 4 years behind everybody in every aspect, even defects.
PS4 owners confirmed for "meat packers".
>Gears 3, Halo 4
Gears 3 was polished, but was a deathblow to the series with its absurd storyline and frankly embarrassing character models.
By the end of my time with the game (well over a hundred hours) I couldn't touch or take the series seriously any more.
Halo 4 was fun for me and a bud for about a week or two. Then we got Borderlands 2 and had a blast.
The point is that multiplats are always going to be better on the PS4.
What is the point of a different shade for the bottom?
This stuff reeks of phallic symbolism, probably to get those subliminal message sales by making your subconscious associate the ps4 with masculinity.
Or poor design choice.
It is pretty gay to me though.
Also people seem to forget that Sony got hacked into, twice I believe, and people's info got stolen. And Sony's launch price compared to the 360 was ridiculous.
>YLOD are becoming rampant now
Are they? I knew that was a thing but compared to the 360s failure rates, it wasn't even on the radar. You have a source or something to show they're on the rise now? I'd like to look it over.
Kinda shitty, if your PS3 shits out now you're kinda prompted into getting a PS4. As opposed to the 360's woes, where you had to buy another 360, and then if that shit out again, an Xbox One.
>Dedicated servers for every game.
Are ads that rampant throughout the menus? I don't even remember seeing ads on the bone menus.
But the TVTVTV people created a stupid integration scheme for live and apps on the bone.
The 360 - PS3 disparity no longer applies, as currently the PS4 is slightly better in online capabilities. This is in terms of UI load times, messaging and friends lists.
I'm sure it won't always be the case, but those TVTVTV people had no idea what gamers wanted.
>"B-B-BUH SONY SHAMED THEM"
>Sony is intergrating even more ads, more TVTVTV and will soon ad DRM once they have all the sales they need to lock out everyone and the right pitch to the gullible consumers
>Implying Sony isn't your uncle who molests you in private then blames your father because he made an inappropriate comment once
Further investment into using Azure cloud tech into creating an online system.
It's actually interesting that microsoft have invested nearly as much money as sony are currently worth into Azure, and it's not surprising that it has recently gained credit as the best service of it's type.
>I don't even remember seeing ads on the bone
Well that list is all bullshit besides it being weaker than the pc and ps4 although anyone who knows shit about specs realizes the difference is minor with the ps4 (destiny runs at same resolution and frame-rate on both). The ui problems are being updated all in all if the tech stuff doesn't apply to you it's about the games. I would say do it op since you're have more fun with friends on the xbox. Go for a kinectless version btw. Hold off on the ps4 since their is about zero good exclusives out or coming for 2014 and early 2015
While microsoft offer a core fundamental upgrade to the quality of the online service, justifying payment, sony offer no such alternative.
Simply put, there is no reason you should have to pay to play online on ps4.
>Sony got hacked into, twice I believe, and people's info got stolen
Yeah that was pretty ridiculous. Don't think anyone forgot about it though. Sony was shit on hard for that, not just on forums, but news sites, TV, etc.
>Sony's launch price compared to the 360 was ridiculous.
That's why I found it funny that the PS3 came back in the end. It was so fucking bad at launch. That being said, it's also why I think Xbone's launch was even more retarded. You saw what happened to your competitor last gen - why would you start up stupid shit like DRM, a higher price tag
because of Kinect, sure, another thing no one wantedit was just a fucking mess. Some of it has been patched up. No DRM, price is in check now, but how they fucked it up so bad in the first place is beyond me.
I dont think I ever heard of Xbox live going down for weeks, only when they had major updates but even then, it was for like a couple hours.
I do remember PSN going down for weeks and even that one time for a full month because of the hacking problem.
But like I said, each system had their ups and downs but the 360 made more progress over the years.
This is weird, I worked for SalesForce before, do they have a connection with Sony? They are a datastorage thing/servers and I have access to one of their snapmirror locations
It's hilarious. I know.
Offering free games is no reason you should have to pay to play online though.
Microsoft actually invest in new technologies to benefit the players online experience, and use their massive Azure service to help with that.
The world looks mighty gay to me 'cuz nigger cocks is all I see!
Everything on that screen is an ad.
Plus they are even nice enough to give live commercials that turn that activate if you go near them and force you to hear abject noise.
AND THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU PAY
>muh 100p difference
Also how is ps4 focused on games when it has no good exclusives besides blood borne. Both consoles are the same price. Also why the fuck do you care about how a console looks? Windows 8 style is bad because?
Azure is just the same as any old regular cloud farm.
Sony could rent the Azure servers out if they want to, plus they have yet to fully implement Gaikai and whatever else.
They'll feature match you and do it with better components and more customization.
>ads on the dashboard
>ads as big as games in the store
>lying about Oddworld being only on Sony consoles when it's confirmed for WiiU as well
>Bragging about console exclusive at all
Gaikai is an ant compared to what Azure is, it only exists as a videogame streaming service and is nowhere near the investment.
If Sony rented out the Azure servers they would be playing into Microsoft anyway, Microsoft could very well not allow them access to it.
>Windows 8 style is bad because?
It's an objectively terrible, clunky interface.
it looks awful and forces a ton of real estate to be taken up by "reminders" of upcoming games and content.
Imagine if your phone or your desktop was covered in reminders placed there by other companies and then tell me it isn't a disjointed, hideous mess.
Wait, I'm confused. I don't own the new systems, only a PS3 and 360. On the PS3 the only "ads" I've ever gotten has been a little bubble in the top right that would have text about new DLC or store shit, if I remember it correctly. On the 360, I had fucking ad boxes all over the fucking main screen when I would boot it up.
Is the picture from both the system's store pages? If so then who cares about ads? You're on a fucking store page, of course there's going to be ads.
What I didn't like about my 360 was fucking ads having boxes as big as my fucking launch game icon was. Fuck that shit.
Do you understand what constitutes an advertisement?
GT6 is the most comprehensive on-line racing sim on console. Forza 5 is a horrible mess that you have to back all the way out to the main menu to tune your car and everyone runs you off the road. The cars may sound better but everything else is shit.
Yes, all that DRM and forced kinect really did hurt microsoft. Maybe they thought people, seeing all the new features on the Xbox one with kinect, would buy it but they forget their is also millions of people who just want sit down and play games without all the extra stuff. Plus the NSA bullshit really hurt them. I remember people actually believing that the goverment would be watching them.
Im there at gamestop paying the rest off my xbox one and a bunch of dudes just playing the demos. Couple dudes checking out the Xbox one. Then a group of other dudes testing the PS4 go up to the people testing the Xbox one. "Trust me bro, don't get the Xbox. I heard the government will be watching you through the kinect." The other people actually believe them and he was talking about how he was so excited about Titanfall but didn't want to be watched by the government.
Me and the cashier just stood there listening to them. I just wanted to laugh because of how gullible people are.
Right, so I can get the ads in the PS4 store. If the Xbox picture is for the One and they're still pulling that shit with ads having their own tiles on your main screen, then fuck that.
Ads in the store menu is fine, ads on the main menu after booting the system up is bullshit. It was that way with the 360, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same for the Xbone.
It's gone on xbone. It's all your last played games and apps and whats new in the store. No advertisements unless you browse the game store and even then they are much smaller than PS4's
>Shows me friends list, last played game, recently used apps,
>left bumper shows me all my pins
>right bumper shows me the market places
Omg it's like the market place is about selling things to you :O
You're just being deliberately misleading.
You know the entire home screen is filled with tiles you did not ask for, about products you do not own, and services you will never use.
>Slim Jims confirmed PS4 exclusive
thank you based Sony
>So are you saying things look better on the Xbox One...?
The Xbox One is underpowered because they had to include Kinect in the price of the manufacturing, which in itself costs more than most of the system.
Source: Confirmed Xbone Dev in a
>The Xbox One is underpowered because they had to include Kinect
It is underpowered because it has objectively worse hardware.
The kinect only added to this.
You cannot close the gap.
>the entire home screen is filled with tiles you did not ask for
The only tiles on the home screen are;
-your pinned content
-your current app/game
-your four most recent apps/games
-the disc in the tray
-controller battery notification
-unread messages/achievement unlocks/invites in top-left corner
-navigational profile to your friends/your profile
On the far-right are navigational tiles for;
>mfw I use voice commands to go directly to what I want to do
GT6 doesn't even have a damage system that affects the cars performance. Every single car on there performs the same and the only difference is speed, Forza on the other hand has cars behaving very similarly to their real world counter parts, you can check any of comparison videos on YT. And the suspension system is just the car body floating over the wheels. So no, it's not "as much a sim as Forza", it's "as much a sim as the NFS games".
>ps4 focused on games when it has no good exclusives besides blood borne
Because that one game is better than ALL the Xbox exclusives?
How can you saw with a straight face that Infamous: Wacky Dreamworks Edition Overdrive and Scale-"Please give us money MS"-Bound are any good at all.
Except it isn't a sizable enough gap where one system can run one game and the other hardware wise can't. Like what we saw this last generation of minor resolution, anti alias, and shader differences but otherwise getting the same experience.
The point was it had worse hardware because they HAD to factor the cost of kinect in when building/selling the thing. Remember the thing was initially designed for Kinect to be non-optional.
Really MS is still screwing customers, without Kinect that thing should be selling $200+ less not $100. The sensor in the Kinect 2.0 is fucking crazy expensive.
Just feels like he's in it for cashgrabs these days, you can't honestly look at Scalebound and say it's the sort of game they WANT to make. It's a piece of shovelware designed to grab MS publishing dollars and look un-offensive/generic to investors.
Probably to cover manufacturing costs of kinect itself before it was sliced off, although it wouldn't do harm for xbox sales for MS to knock off a large amount of the price, especially with the 26 market release later this year
If anything it looks like he's had the creative freedom he's dreamed of by working at platinum.
Look at the amount of passion put into his last two games, Bayonetta 1 and the wonderful 101.
I can't wait for Scalebound.
The man's never directed a bad game either.
I think if this were the 360 they would have knocked a much bigger chunk off. The problem the Bone faces is that it's the 3rd iteration of an MS product. MS is well known that your first two attempts are basically free but on your 3rd attempt your product has to push a hefty profit.
They expected the Bone to launch as well as the 360 but also dominate the normalfag TV/Sports/Netflix space. Then use the non-optional kinect to collect and then sell analytics for commercials shown on the TV part and inserted into games.
Right now if you do a superbowl commercial it will cost you millions and you have no real concept of how people reacted to it. The kinect could passively collect these reactions and then be sold to advertisers (The debug readout uses ad-speak, engaged etc and expression/heartrate are way more useful to advertisers than game devs)
They expected this thing to print money and then some.
The NSA is more than likely watching you right now as you post on 4chan
Look behind you
They got burned by the fact you have to sell the product first and make it accepted before you can pull that shit like they did with the 360.
Advertisers are just going to move on to what sells better and you better believe Sony need that money.
Again, boiling frog. Sony fanboys don't know they are being cooked and primed for the DRM, ads and TVTVTV all out assault
>Advertisers are just going to move on to what sells better and you better believe Sony need that money.
It wasn't advertisers who were pushing this. You know how Google owns AdSense and sells adverts and analytics to businesses. This is like that but more intrusive and from MS.
I work at one of the major ad agencies and we got briefed by MS on it months ago.
Turn down the autism for fucks' sake!
And now Sony have a massive selling console with people willingly buying their spy camera that also has facial recognition. Sony's standing on a goldmine of analytics they can sell and advertisers will be beating down their door looking for it.
You work in marketing, you know how it works. Move on to the next best thing. If their customers are even more accepting of shilling because of brand loyalty (See Macfags), EVEN BETTER.
I have a Bone. I can't think of anything that is actively repelling me from the system, especially with new games/exclusives coming out. Get it if your friends are all online, especially if you're getting a PS4 later anyway.
