Bottom line is, speaking from someone that has a PS4 and have been playing it all week, Xbone is pushing the envelope.   PS4 is essentially PS3 2.0.

 saywhat

Yeah I did the same thing. This seems to be the standard Xbone defense these days.  saywhat

And the Xbone requires no defense.   Look at the reviews:   The Bone is scoring equal or even a notch higher on every review I've read.

Didn't you read the Engadget reviews? I believe you posted the PS4 one. You don't even need to read the review - just read the headline.

seeing the ign raw video makes me a bit bummed.  the voice commands don't appear to work any better than they did in Kinect 1.0.  in fact, it felt pretty much exactly what I remember with Kinect 1.0.  it seems like half of the time, the commands need to be repeated.  

From what I'm reading, there's a learning curve in figuring out how the Kinect wants to hear commands. If you just say "XboxForzaMotorsport5" it's not going to work and you're going to think it's non-responsive. You have to do a short pause after the Xbox to notify the unit you're about to issue the command. The IGN guy was running his words together quite often when it didn't respond. (Though I was surprised that even when he was running his words together it was still able to understand him quite often).

If you watch the video there were several times where the dude just wasn't using the right command. (For instance, saying "Xbox what's on MTV" before doing a Select).

Now I don't believe for a second that voice recognition is 100% perfect on the thing, but it is a machine and you can't blame it for not interpreting your intentions.
I'm not sure I agree with you unless by "running his words together" you mean "speaking naturally". As one review already mentioned you feel idiotic enough talking to your electronics, never mind having to do it slowly and clearly.

IGN doesn't have a score up but what they do have is 23 minutes of unedited video of one of the producers using the xbox.   

I'm excited for Friday, but I can see where some frustration will crop up using the voice features

The potential is there but man was that ever painful. When I play games I want to relax, I don't want to be shouting at my console and I certainly don't want to be repeating myself. If this is the improved Kinect then what in the world was the first one like? I think I'm going to have to put myself in the camp who don't like squares all over the place. That looked really confusing. To be fair, I haven't seen how the Sony system works yet so I can't really compare. I do know that if I had a Xbox One I would be using the controller for everything.

Wow, that was not a flattering video at all.

Also, it takes 1 minute and 8 seconds to boot the machine?!?!? Ugh....glad I'm waiting. Hopefully they iron this stuff out, soon.
I thought it took 22 seconds? Obviously, both consoles are unfinished-that's what's so great about the whole thing. Look at the PS3 at the beginning of the generation and at the end. If Sony does the same with the PS4 then it will be the greatest console off all time by the end of this new gen.

Damn straight.  I've been playing Lego Marvel for the last two hours via remote play, while watching the Packer game...no SNAP required!

It just occurred to me that the solution you guys have been giving to avoid taking up game real estate on your TV via the snap feature is to instead play the game on a 5 inch screen.  saywhat  icon_biggrin
I know you're joking but a 5" screen a foot away from your face is probably just as big as a 40" TV eight feet away. Personally, I'd rather play the game on the big screen and watch the sports on the Vita. Get on that Sony!

My PS 4 has been sitting in a shipping facility in San Bernardino for two days now! Damn you lazy Americans, haven't you heard of working on a weekend!? smile
Curse Sony for releasing on a Friday and curse Amazon for not shipping overseas orders a couple of days early in order to avoid this kind of situation.
132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: November 18, 2013, 06:26:28 AM
I'm a little concerned about quality issues, not because I think things are out of control but because as I'm living in Japan and I ordered from the US things won't be quite so straightforward if it comes to getting Amazon to take it back. I really, really hope I'm in the 99.96%.

That is probably the one thing that will actually make me keep my pS4 in the end. If I had to play it on my TV I would probably never get any time on it. Can I turn on and turn of the PS4 with my Vita?

Ahh you were too fast for me. That is impressive. And that's 24 hours compared to 30 days for the other consoles.

Where are the numbers for PS2 and PS1 and N64?

This video is getting me to upgrade to a 1TB SSHD. This was done on the PS3. I wonder if the PS4 difference will be as stark.
I found this speed comparison on IGN. There doesn't seem to be much of an advantage for BF4 but the load times for COD are basically cut in half. More evidence that IW are completely shit?

I'm sure this game will become a free PS+ game sooner rather than later.
In Japan, they're already getting this game as a pack-in when the PS4 comes out in February so I would have to agree with you. I'm looking forward to getting it for free shortly. smile

I'm sure the headset is probably quite crap but being able to use pretty much any headset or earphones you have lying around should take the sting out of it a bit.
140  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors are put to rest. on: November 16, 2013, 12:36:59 PM
I heard that not only can you plug any regular headset into your controller but you can do the same with any pair of headphones and have the sound play through that rather than your TV. That is awesome. For the PS3 I bought a special headset with about a 3m cord to deal with the noise situation but it was such a pain to plug into the TV and unplug that I rarely used it. If I can just grab by JVC cellphone headphones that are lying on the couch next to me and plug them into my controller then that is pretty awesome.

hmmm... I wonder if that means there will be lazy achievements like they had with the King Kong game.
"Start the game" 50 points.

well, with the launches almost here it is great to see that media sensationalism isn't going away icon_lol
It's whatever gets clicks theses days. You have to be sensationalist. Like wobblegate. Do the PS4 wobble? No, not in the normal sense. It's perfectly stable on its own and even if you try to make it wobble by shaking the table that it's sitting on. But when you push down on the side that overhangs then you can change its center of gravity. It's almost like physics or something! And then they call it wobblegate. Whatever gets clicks.

I guess it would have to go to Uncharted for me because I've been able to finish all three of the games that I played (1,2 and Vita). I also finished Fallout 3 so that's up there. Basically if a game is good enough for me to play to completion then it's  pretty damned good game.

Mayor Rob Ford snorted cocaine, swilled vodka, popped a dose of Oxycontin and partied with an apparent prostitute during an all-night binge last year that raved from his office to a private room in a Toronto bar and back, according to allegations made by Ford staffers and bar employees to police investigating the mayor.

Sony will allow you to buy digital playstation games from other retailers.  This is freaking cool

this now makes me sort of envious for the PS4.

Kudos to Sony for this excellent move

Wow. Allowing other retailers to do digital sales will lead to a Steam-like world a lot quicker than locking down your system and not allowing reselling or trading in my opinion. Can't wait for some awesome Amazon sales.

Remote play with the Vita. It looks amazing and no lag. This might allow me to actually play some PS4 games. With a 2 month old I just find that I don't have a nice block of time to sit down and game (he's sleeping on my shoulder as I type this). If remote play works the way it should then I can just leave the PS4 running and not worry about sharing the TV with my wife and the Vita suspend feature should let me pick up and play a game for 5 or 10 minutes at a time.
