Can we just compare the first unofficial unboxings here? For the Xbone, a guy is lucky enough to get his early and makes an unboxing video which is then removed because MS complains that an unboxing somehow violates copyright and then his console is banned (temporarily but they didn't feel the need to make that clear right from the start). Sony on the other hand gives a console to one of the most watched video game YouTubers on the internet and allows him to make an unboxing for it which is then seen by hundreds of thousands (almost a million) of gamers, increasing the sense of goodwill towards Sony.
Just who is running the PR department over at MS?

I'm going with Microsoft has a timeline planned out and Target hosed them with this mistake.  MS did not want that info out and had only one way to stop it, banning the console (until system released) and pulling the youtube video.  I don't think it is right for youtube to pull the video but MS did offer the guy some perks for his troubles, maybe MS PR could be more vocal about what they did for the guy.

Sony gave that console to someone they picked out, MS had no control over where Target sent the XB1.  Seems a big difference to me, MS is sending XB1's to journalists as well but they have yet to lift the NDA, to my knowledge Sony isn't sending random people PS4's.  I'll never understand the appeal of unboxing videos for any product.

Does anyone anyone know if the Xbone is coming with a free month of xbox live? I can't find anything about this but it just seems crazy for them not to do it because they were basically the console that started the whole "buy a console and get a free X months of xbox live".
Sony is giving away a free month (for new users) and of course that will include a free PS+ game (Resogun) and they're giving away a month of the music streaming and actual cash in $10 of PSN credit to use in the store.
I just can't believe MS is doing  nothing at all although I haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise.

Only thing I know of so far is that the Fitness stuff will be free until the end of the year.  Still time for MS to announce something, they may just be waiting for all the NDA's to lift and come out swinging (or not).

Is it ironic that they mention they are playing at 720p?  They do say they like the look of it.

Ohh edited to add they do mention it can do 1080p as well.

It's confirmed as 1080p and locked at 60 fps. Nothing to worry about. smile

I was just being snarky about it looking good in 720p, happy to see it is a free PS+ game.  Might not try it otherwise, a bit too twitch response type of game for my old eyes.

How many of you are taking Friday off to take shipment of your PS4?

Can't take Friday's off, my hours are 4pm til midnight and I'm the only one scheduled to work Friday swing shift.

UPS usual delivery for my house is around 5pm so the box will have to sit there on the stoop unless the wife is home and grabs it.

Same for the Xbox the week after but I'm not too worried, my house is off the street and you would have to walk past 4 other houses to get to mine, never had a problem with missing stuff.

retire already! (oh yeah, and move to Indy)  ninja

20 months to go, I promise to ride my motorcycle through Indy on my way to South America.

If you get a PS4 before launch, no worries on getting banned the way that MS is giving the ban hammer to anyone that gets the XB1 before launch.

Giant bomb has a 40 min video of some XB1 games.  They played Dead Rising, Forza, Ryse, BF4 and had some footage of Crimson Dragon.  I'm very happy with what I saw even if DR3 was the only game they spent a lot of time on.  They also mentioned the Kinect and how it worked well in BF4 and talked a little about the fitness programs (no video of that).  Overall they seemed OK with how the console was performing but no resolution discussion.

This is really cool. First live preview I've seen of how Xbox Fitness will work.

Sean T's Insanity!!!

This may have just pushed the Xbone to the top for me.  The wife and I did most of the Insanity program earlier this year and I could see her being all over the Kinect version, not to mention all those other training videos shown in the background at the start of that video. 

The fitness thing is what draws me the most to the xbox.  Liked the video and I hope and expect that the next gen stuff will be able to track floor exercises and won't need a large distance from the tv.  Exciting to see the many workout choices in the menu, hope the cost isn't overwhelming.

Fat chance of that when neither of them is even offering us the ability to play MP3s... yet. Tongue

Maybe we are talking different things here but the Xbox One can stream MP3's

I'm not up on DLNA and personally never played MP3's on the PS3 or 360.

 I can see where a business might think $1500 is a small expense but isn't that the cost of the license?  Should the Unity License price be bumped to $10,000 and then given away free?  That would make a better story line I guess.

  I also didn't see where developing a game using Unity would lock the developer into a Microsoft only release for the title, is that the case?  If so then I would agree that it isn't the best news but if the developer can also design the same game for the PS4 concurrently then why demean this news?

Well, I just cancelled my preorder.  I preorered both after E3 just while I waited to make up my mind.  In the end, I'm going to cancel both and wait a while.

To be honest I feel this is the smart play, both Sony and MS have histories of over promising and under delivering.  Wish I was smart but I am going to keep both on order but the PS4 order is on life support at the moment due to lack of release day games I want to play.

Oh, with it being PS4 footage I thought I was supposed to say it looks amazing! Tongue

It just looks very crossgen.

but it IS crossgen, not sure why this is even worth mentioning.  I really doubt anyone thought launch titles (especially those appearing on current gen as well) would be the titles to showcase what the next gen can do.

While the graphics might not be the showcase perhaps dedicated servers would be?  Or are they moving to dedicated servers for the PS3/360 versions as well?

I agree with your points AA but am concerned that Obamacare will be twisted to allow companies to get out from providing healthcare insurance.  During the 80's and 90's the stock market was all go go go and companies such as the one I work for (Pacific Gas and Electric) actually never had to put money into their pension plans since it was based on company stock and the stock value was rising faster than benefits were being paid out.  When the market slumped in 2000 all of a sudden that was no longer true and many companies were underfunded in the pension plan.  Congress enacted laws designed to protect pension plans by requiring companies to keep the plans fully funded,and the result was companies just deleted pension plans and gave workers small cash balance payouts as compensation.  Companies were using the requirement to fully fund the pension plan as an excuse to remove the plan altogether.

I have no idea if Obamacare will provide for the same sort of she iguanas (hehe I tried spelling shenanigans and got auto correct she iguanas) but recent history has shown that companies surely will try and twist it around to their best profit to cost benefit.

I'm getting system of a down what with the PS'ers shouting from the rooftops that lack of pre-release vids of XBone games is almost certain proof that 1) the games aren't ready, 2) the games are better on the PS system. 

OMG! Infinity Ward showed PS4 footage!  XBone is suxor and Kinect2 worthless hahahahaha!

Oh well I will get both and hope they both are good consoles, maybe that is why I don't feel any need to validate my decision by showing the other choice in a bad light.

Not real sure, burnt out on AC and a barely played ACIII at all.  Not into FIFA, CoD on Xbone if I get it at all, Killzone never looked like something I wanted to play and  I have never played a Lego game.  I guess buy the console and see what games get the best reviews?  Then go that way?  Could cancel the system pre-order and may still do so but there will be games for the PS4 that I will want to play long before any price drop happens and that is the way I'm leaning now.

I like to see people getting excited about a new console but so much of this thread is more along the lines of people getting excited about the possible failures of the console they are not planning to buy and that is decidedly not exciting.  Who here thinks you are going to change someone's mind based on Internet rumors and insider info?  And yet the vitriol is growing faster and faster.  Release dates cannot come fast enough so we can finally separate fact from fiction.

Feeling good about my pre-orders but not so good about this thread.

I am hoping for a overarching plot line as weekly stabbing of walkers gets old for me if the survivors have no plan and no way out.  I'm getting nitpicky as well on stupid things that have no real bearing on the story like why wasn't Herschel the vet looking after the pig and why was the lady from the woods so dirty and yet her tent was spotless?  Small things but probably an indicator that I am losing interest.

Sounds like you need to buy a XB1 instead of a PS4, guaranteed to have games uglier and more gritty smile, just kidding!  I know what you are saying in regards to the look of the actors in a series but for me I guess I was expecting it and did not take away from the enjoyment of the show.  What did jar me a bit was the car at the end of the episode and the "bus".  Seems to me if you have secret tech then why are you flaunting it around in public?  Small thing that tickled the brain though.

I'm going to continue watching the show but I've already written off several other new shows such as Mom (terrible Chuck Lorre show yet again) and Micheal J Fox show (seems very cookie cutter of a show).  Sleepy Hollow is on the bubble.
