So for $499 you are basically only able to play games on Xbox1

I am being open minded by letting myself try different things and not being a fan of any one console, but how many people have tried Playstation without saying things, the online is no good, or I don't like their games. I used to say this once before I decided to trade my Xbox 360 in about 1 week ago and TRY some of Sony's exclsuives.
The games are actually good and the PS3 is no where near as bad as some make it out to be. THe only bad thing I don't like about it is you can't chat to a friend while playing a single player game but this will be fixed on the PS4.
Some people say they aren't biased towards one company but some of the reasons they chose one over the other don't even make sence and they just chose that company because they have been with them for so long without giving someone else a chance.
Kind of like how Apple people always buy iphones and Ipads, or someoone always gets the same kind of car like a Holden or Ford.
And people might prefer Xbox live because the PS3 wasn't that good, but if they fix this on PS4 what's their reason with sticking to Xbox ?
If Sony had DR3,Titanfall,Halo,Gear's,KI,Minecraft,Fable,Crackdown,Ryse maybe I would consider getting one,83% of all 360 owners are online.
If you do not want to be online then get a PS4 or stick with last gen,it's that simple,I don't see many people choosing a console based on Netflix especially now with every blu ray player has Netflix,youtube and all the other stuff for free now,even Wi Fi Tvs have it now.
All I want to do is play games with this anyway.
I rarely care about online. I have gold now, but only because I play multiplayer Borderlands with my brother. I have literally 3 people on my XBox friends list.
I am fine with only being able to pay games. I have a computer for everything else this system offers that I may be even remotely interested in doing.
Honestly, BruceLee1974, I am sure you must be trolling. Some people like oranges, some people like apples. I prefer x box live over psn, its that simple. You are trying to force your OPINIONS on others and referring to anyone that does not agree with you as a fanboy. I have used PSN extensively and I find the menus unintuitive, the whole interface slow. It just looks like something a 13 year old kid threw together. I am sure it will improve now that sony is charging for on line, but the fact is x box live suits me more. I have tried both and made a educated choice, I am buying gold anyway so the whole pay wall argument which I find to be an asinine point of view means nothing to me.
