    So.. now that both the xBox One and the PS4 have had their launch dates.. Who is the winner?

    Well.. it was really a no contest.
    Simply put.. The PS4 Won.

    To elaborate.. The PS4 beat the pants off the xBox One.
    PS is 4 you. .. XBOX is for no ONE

    Here.. this guy puts it properly.. pertinent specially since the guy's a PC gamer:




    But surely the xBox Fanboys have something to say in retort!
    Sure they do.. and here's the xBox Fanboys perspective (a must watch)::

    Few of the Points.

    Sony:

    Allows you to play Single Player games/mode totally offline.

    Allows you to freely trade Physical copies of Games.(3rd publishers might create restrictions though)

    PlayStation+ $5/month subscription mandatory for online multiplayer. Other online services will be free as before.

    PS4 will be region free .. So import away !!

    No mandatory need for the Eye Accessory.

    500 GB Internal HDD .. Which can be upgraded.

    Awesome new controller with headset jack.

    We all know now about the xBox One's DRM restrictions..
    But on the PS4.. you can share your games (if you know how)

    so.. to learn how to share your PS4 games, here's the ... (WATCH this.. V. Informative)

    Luciffer 3rd party publishers can still introduce their own DRM if they like for the PS4..

    Anyway, if the PS4 somehow fails I'll still have my PC with me.

    Other than EA .. don't think anyone else will.
    After all the hue and cry against the xBox One online, would you as a game developer do it?

    Anyways.. Other than Kingdom Hearts.. this is the game I'm looking forward to the most: (Free Beta with PS4 at launch)

    OK.. For initpidzero .. and other PC gamers here (me included)
    Here's a video explaining in detail WHY these next gen consoles are so important to PC Gamers:
    Watch this video.. it's very informative..

    But the crux boils down to this.
    The video game industry is a business, and NO business doesn't want to maximize revenue.
    Thus NO gaming developer is going to make a game that the consoles can't play.
    So no matter how powerful your PC might be.. your games are only going to have the Max functionality of the latest consoles. (with perhaps a tad better graphics.
    So any improvement in consoles means better games for you.
    (There are exceptions.. games made Only for the PC.. Like the original Crisis and original Witcher, but that's about it! )

    Here.. watch:

    Consoles give you a more casual gaming experience .. Its a stress reliever.

    Come home ..Turn on the console launch the game ..play .. Get bored .. Pause turn off TV. Go out ..come back turn on TV start playing again..

    PCs are setup on a desktop ..
    KB n Mouse operation takes a lot more effort compared to a controller. You have to sit up straight and play. I think most PC Gamers prefer this 'disciplined' approach (I certain do)..

    Gaming on a console, your friend can watch u play .. When its his turn just pass the controller. PC Gaming is more personal.. because a PC as a device is personal.

    Remember .. All PC gamers started with Consoles only ..

    That is very generic statement. Any kids born when PC gaming was more ubiquitous might have started with PC. I know a few kids like that.
    That being said I started gaming in 90s, where PCs were rare and my first games were Mario and there was this car racing gaming I cannot recall.
    I donno if you guys have seen this but there were two gaming console back in my days: one was called MEDIA and other one called SAMURAI. They were essentially Nintendos but some cheap knockoff, I cannot find those console anywhere on internet.

    Seriously?? Am not kidding.. out here PCs didn't become mainstream till late 90s?
    That's appox 10 years from the time I got one as a student. (wasn't some rich exec.. was just a under-grad student)
    A few yrs later it became mandatory for all students to have (at my college)
    EDIT: This is in the US, ofcourse.

    Yes.. Seriously..

    The advent of the Home Computer started around the year 2000 with Compaq HCL and other forgotten brands rolling out Entertainment Multimedia PCs ..

    Dad spent around 50k for 550mhz PC back then .. 50k in 2000 ..

    Before that it was a Business Tool.
