Good News, guess i wont have to get a play station now.
By every objective measure, Playstation 3 was better than Xbox 360, and Playstation 4 will be better than Xbox One.
But don't let objective measures get in the way of your fanboyism.
and more on topic....now every Xbox fan can rest easy knowing DRM isn't required....and they will still stay online 24/7.

What about the kinect that watches you do naked pushups in your livingroom even while it's off?

This makes me angry.
There is a massive scandal going on, with hundreds of millions of people being monitored, with every government on the planet potentially corrupted and controlled by an unaccountable and almost invisible American conspiracy of military/corporate/intelligence collusion, and people are ranting about their toys?
This is what's wrong, this is why we are so dumbed down and stupid, this is why we are in the place we're in. The ignorant masses get all worked up by a corporation telling them they have to play by their rules, while an insidious secret cabal is fapping over every move you make and determined to watch more.
It's a TOY. It's a game. A distraction. People are screaming about something they can choose not to buy, while they couldn't care less about the massive corruption of their own f'ing government!edit on 20-6-2013 by Rocker2013 because: (no reason given)
Not all of us are like this though....see, this is about DRM, control.....it's all linked...
If you study the posting history of not only myself, but pretty much everyone in this thread, you'll find that we have MORE than enough f**ks to give..and that we care about the stuff you mentioned, and we discuss it here, but we also sometimes like to discuss other stuff that interests us...
if you wrap yourself in conspiracies and research of crimes all day, every day, it tends to land you in a padded room eventually...sometimes you need to take a little break, and talk about other stuff..
I know this is not descriptive of everyone, and here especially, more members are more inclined to think critically about this. I should have made it clear that I meant the population in general, not the population of ATS

Reasons I will not buy Xbox.
2. An eye that listens to what you say and watches what you do, is just another reason for violation of privacy. We already know with the latest NSA leak that Microsoft is on the list that supplies them personal information.
3. Xbox online costs money and fun is meant to be free
Overall Sony will be #1 and it will take several years for Microsoft to catch up now.edit on 20-6-2013 by PsiOpSky because: (no reason given)

Xbox has been the better console over the years
the Xbox one offers far more than the PlayStation the technology in its creation is progress controlling things with movements of your hand and using voice activation
come on people we are supposed to be moving in that direction not stuck in the 90's
all the ps4 offers is better graphics over the ps3
the controllers are awfull on playstation there small and awkward to use where as Xbox controllers fit perfectly in your hand and are alot easier to use
every one is moaning about the price and kinect yes Microsoft are pricing it including the kinect but if you wanted the the camera for PlayStation it would cost you a £100 and the price would be same as Xbox one and with regards to the privacy and the camera listening and watching there is a simple solution people unplug it from the wall or turn it off at the mains its not like its a 1hr work out at the gym 1min less than that to flick a switch or pull it from socket problem solved Xbox offers more so will have my money

The PS4 will now require PSN+ to play online multiplayer so there is a now a monthly subscription fee to play online.
