Say Microsoft made what the PS4 is now, but it was named XB1. And Sony made what the XB1 is now, but it was named the PS4, would it change your decision?

I am buying both, so it doesn't matter.

The policies of each company fits that companies character, so they'd be the same console, except the "new" PS4 would be less powerful. That'd be a bit of a bummer, but Sony games are top-tier. A real question would be:

Keeping the same policies from E3, if the two switched first party studios/games, which one would you get?

I'm not getting the PS4 because it's more powerful, or the X1 because it's any less. That's just a happy coincidence.
In fact, even before the whole DRM fiasco I still wasn't planning on buying MS's next console. Not after they completely neglected the core game for the 4 years leading up to the next generation.

But I'm no fanboy. Last gen I bought the 360 at launch and didn't buy a PS3 for years because Sony thought it would be more fun trying to fit each others heads up their butts instead of developing an affordable console with decent first party support.

So if MS change their ways I'll come back. But I'm giving it a few years just to make sure.

It's a bigger issue than just the name or whatever, it's about the policies and the anti consumer attitude.

If the Playstation consoles had the exclusives that I enjoy and the better online service, I would like Playstation.

I'm not sure how a topic like this gets made. I mean seriously.

How do you know the One has a better online service?

Umm, because the original Xbox and 360 did? Not rocket science to think the X1 won't either. Plus, 300,000 servers.

You don't think in 6 years Sony wouldn't have thought to include things like cross game chat and everything else the 360 had that the PS3 didn't?
