Hey guys, Ferrari here. Ok, so i'm going to try to keep my views as unbiased is physically possible. However, when comparing a game-centric device to a overpriced sky+ box, it might be a bit difficult. I will start by saying that I believe unless Microsoft pulls something marvelous out of their ass at E3, Sony will have won the war before it's even started. As it stand's in the battlefield on this bulls**t war between platforms, Sony hold's all the cards and Microsoft is left sitting in the corner crying, wondering what to do in order to redeem itself. Anyway's, i've gone on about opinions long enough, let's move on to facts. I've going to talk about the 3 biggest piles of crap which Microsoft has done with the new Xbox. Just as a note, i'm restricting this on the device itself rather than the games for it. Pile of crap 1: The used games dilemma. Ok, so i'm sure you know all about the used game dilemma by now, but i'm going to tell you solid facts behind why it's in place. In an interview, and this isn't a quote, Microsoft said "to play games on xbox one, you must install it to your hard drive and then you can play without a disk. To avoid you from giving to game to everyone you know, we have implemented a feature which allows the game to be installed once and all additional installs must play a small fee"... What... The serious... F**k? Wow, Microsoft, that's your excuse?!?, here's an idea, REMOVE the installation requirement and all of this would be avoided in the first place. Pile of crap 2: Always online... Sort of. 'Wait a minute, Red! Xbox one can be played offline, Microsoft said themselves!'. Don't get me wrong, you are right. However, the xbox one needs to perform a 'online check' once every 24 hours to make sure there is still a connection there. Basically what this means is, if your internet is bad or it has gone down for a few days, no xbox one game-time for you!! Pile of crap 3: No compatibility for 360 games. I assume this is thanks to the already bulls**t 'install required' thing they've decided to go for. This means if you want to keep playing 360 games, you need to keep the 360. This means I can't trade in my 360, buy an xbox one and play all my old games on the new xbox, which is just downright stupid! So what about the PS4? Unlike the xbox one, the PS4 focused on the game and nothing but the game. Each system will have it's faults but Microsoft's are much more obvious than Sony's. The xbox one wanted to be an all-in-one entertainment system where as the PS4 wanted to be what every gamer wanted, which was a game-centric device which brought you the games you wanted. How much game footage did you see at the sony conference compared to how much you saw at the xbox reveal? One thing i will say in xbox's favour is i prefer the controller, but some third party people here in britain will probably have a replica xbox controller for the PS4 within weeks of it's release, so whether the controller will live up to be a pro is yet to be seen. PS4 advantages. More power. no extra fee on used games. no need to install games more games announced focused on games and not TV no always online Xbox one advantages Better controller So... In conclusion, Sony is one card off the royal flush. Microsoft really need to bring it at E3 on June 10th (I think) or Sony will be holding the crown and having the last laugh. As it stands, there is no BIG advantage to owning a Xbox one over a PS4 if you are a normal gamer. I ranted on a bit so here's the short version - As it stands, in terms of being a gaming device, PS4 holds all the cards and Xbox one is in trouble. Thanks for reading guys. I will include the links to the articles i read later. It is currently 5 to midnight in England, i've got a banging headache and I just need to go bed, so i'll provide the links in the morning. Ferrari out.
