On a complete side note, Naomi Kyle is hot.   However, she may have the most annoying voice of any commentator I've ever heard.

She's an engineered blonde clone of Jessica Chobot, I swear.

lets cool off a bit fellas.  First things first.  It's a game console.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Lets not get bent out of shape over a game console.

Both has their strengths and weakness, some are pros for a group of people, while a different group sees it as cons.  Lets respect each other's interests. 

If you can't handle that, politely leave the thread.

I doubt TiLT is being paid.  Forge and Hetz maybe, but TiLT has scruples.  He's no one's paid monkey.  Whores do it for money, and TiLT is one classy broad.

I wish I was getting paid! No, I assure you, I am not getting paid. If I was getting paid, there is no way I would say I was getting an Xbox One at some point next year. I am staying far away from it now....but I am sure I will get one at some point. I do want to play Ryse and Dead Rising 3....just not worth $500 for me to play them right now.

Google is your friend?

Gotta say, she's quite pretty. I wonder how long before people hate her for no reason? Tongue

Anyway, back to the games. I really need to check what plugs everything is using now. I was going to buy cables ahead of time for these systems. Thankfully, Tilt tipped me off that the DS4 uses micro USB now, which is really nice since every device seems to use that now instead of mini USB plugs.

I'm actually buying 3 extra DS4s. I know it sounds crazy, but I'm actually using these for PC as much as PS3. Ever since I showed them the videos of it, my group plans to do some serious play of games like Towerfall and Samurai Gunn. And I think a lot of the indie games coming out for both consoles and PCs will support 4 players locally. I thankfully have a really good local gaming group that can get together to play, and I gotta say, some games are just better with a bunch of players together on a couch.

Also, they have to be making a LittleBigPlanet 3, my younger cousins are older now, but they still ask me to bring LBP2 around, and there's some new additions the family now.

Anyone else getting more controllers, or at least excited about 4 player local games making a comeback?

Nope and nope. The PS4 will be the first console I've owned where I intend on having just the one controller.

I've got a second controller and charge kit ordered for my Xbone. My PS4 has one for now. I may expand later.

IIRC, both consoles use MicroUSB. The Xbone will switch over to the wire connection for slightly faster response times, though the response time for wireless is better than current wired controllers (according to the 40 improvements video from about 6 weeks ago).

All this talk about planted viral marketers makes me want to avoid the Xbone and PS4 entirely and just go with a Nintendo® Wii U™, which provides family fun and an unbeatable value.  However you play and whatever you play, Nintendo® has you covered.

yeah, fanboism went out of fashion for me during the Nintendo/Xbox/PS2 days.  No one gets paid by any of these companies (not that I'm aware of) and the rampant vitriol that is being dished out around the web and here is getting old.   Someone post something positive about the XB1or PS4 someone will post 2-3 items detracting.

So how does the DS4 handle? slywink icon_twisted

Is the Kinect integration worth the money? What about the speed / install times of games?

Both boast a lot, but this isn't buying a product that's already on the market - it's investing in a concept. Whether the reality shakes out is anyone's guess.

I've heard the PS4 does a terrible job of playing Forza!

You're only guessing it won't be good at playing Forza. You can't possibly know for sure since neither is released yet. slywink

So it appears that the launch exlusives for each console are:

PS4:

Knack
Killzone
Drive Club

Xbone:

Ryse
Dead Rising 3
Forza

Am I missing any besides the digitial-only indie type games?    In other words, these are the heavy hitters?

Resogun is digital only but I think it is worth noting as it has the potential to be to the PS4 what Geometry Wars was to the 360 at launch.  And on that same note I'd add Killer Instinct to the XB1 list.

I'd add Crimson Dragon (think Panzer Dragoon Orta), and I'm interested (though Ron will probably tackle) the Kinect game Fighter Within from Ubisoft.

Some of the F2P games look interesting - looking forward to Wart hunter. slywink

Well on the bright side I now don't have to worry about deciding between Dead Rising and Watch Dogs. Honestly none of the launch titles have that "OMGMUSTPLAYNOW!!!" feeling, but I'm just as much looking forward to goofing around with the TV integration and Kinect.

I've got the week after launch off of work, as well as the week after Christmas. Me and Xbone are going to get very well acquainted.

Yeah, if I was getting the XB1....I'd get those two as well. Those seem like the safest bets. I have a very bad feeling about Ryse.

Killzone seems like the "game to get" for the PS4 at this point.

I've decided to cancel both of my preorders. This appears to be the first time that the new console generation will have graphics trailing significantly behind the PC market. Previously the PC played catch up for a short period of time. I'm disappointed by this small upgrade over last generation. Some of these release games aren't even in 1080p. Sad.

meanwhile, I have an Alienware HTPC which runs everything at 1080p with all the added bells and whistles. So I'll see no jump in visuals with the next gen consoles compared to what I'm already accustomed to.

I'm looking forward to the launch fanfare, but I can wait until after Christmas for an actual purchase.

I don't recall any time that consoles had better graphics than PC.  Maybe it had better graphics than your PC due to an inferior video card compared to the console.

Honestly I'm with YK.    If I could only get one, I would get the XB1 because it is more than just a current gen PC like the PS4.    The XB1 was built in features to enhance television viewing, better exclusives up front, voice controls, etc.    It's more of a integrated av, livingroom hub type thing.

The PS4, while good, is really just a current gen decently strong PC clone.   

I'm getting both though, so no big whoop.
