With the kinect-less Xbox One starting at $399 who will be persuaded to buy an Xbox One over a Ps4? Being that pricing is equal for now.
In our house we felt the Xbox had better games. Of course the Wii is really the game machine for kids.The Xbox One deal with Kinect and Titanfall for $450 was much better. Would hold out if I was in the market for one. I bought 3 Xbox Ones but sold/returned them all without opening lol. PS4 has better games on the horizon.
Every time I hear this I always have to ask: what are the differences?The Kinect-less Xbox One bundle is a superior gaming platform then the PS4. Yes the PS4 is more powerful. But at least in my experience you'll be playing mostly alone. Xbox Live is an excellent platform for gaming. PSN is very good, and has a lot of incentives through free games, but it really isn't much better then old school PC multiplayer gaming.
Every time I hear this I always have to ask: what are the differences?
I've got a 360, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, etc. I find the PS4 online to be identical to what Microsoft offers (party, invites, friend notifications, voice and video messaging, voice talk in the OS and not the game, etc).
I haven't found it difficult playing with people on PSN maybe there's something wrong with your network?
But you said:The differences are small, and hard to tangibly define, other then it seems like many things take more steps to complete. The actual performance of each thing is find. It just seems more loosely integrated.
Hopefully it didn't come off as a dig on Sony. I was sad that at least in my circle of friends I didn't have anyone to really play with.
Small, hard to tangibly define reasons are what makes the Xbox superior and PS4 is like old school PC gaming?PSN is very good, and has a lot of incentives through free games, but it really isn't much better then old school PC multiplayer gaming.
