Wait, what is this about Kinect? In what way is it "forced"? I will certainly get PS4 if I need to use Kinect...

No backwards compatibility on both sides is a slap in the face


The lack of BC is always complained about more than the presence of BC is utilized. That's not to say it DOESN'T get used, but it's not as big a deal as we make it out to be.

You don't need to use it, but it does come with every system.

Really, it ALWAYS comes down to the games. If you aren't sure yet which you are interested in, there is no harm in waiting until there are games that you want.

I prefer the xbox controller. It took a little while getting used to from going from a PS2 controller, but after getting used to it, I now I can't stand the PS3 controller, it's way too small for my liking.


BTW, the DS4 is larger than the DS3 was. Apparently, it is more solid, as well.

People are saying it's forced, as in you can't purchase an Xbox One without it.

You don't have to use it. Which would beg the question, why not do a kit without it?

But hey, it is what it is.

Pro:
-Games (exclusives)
-Online services and UI generally have a good track record relative to PS4. Detailed below:
----Instant switching, snap, Skype and generally seamless integration of all sofa based media in one place.
----Voice and Gesture commands
----Family sharing coming back, and they will most likely include Games for Gold with X1.
-Controller stick layout and rumble triggers if you prefer it. Size is less of an issue this time.
-Kinect is included
-Entertainment Apps/TV integration (HBO, Xbox Fitness etc)
-NFL fantasy football integration
-Dedicated Servers
-Much more indie friendly and supportive policies than before. The Indie Developer Program would promote a better quality and a larger quantity of games in general.

Cons:
-Slight power disadvantage. How massive this difference is still unclear however all evidence indicates its minimal at best for the average consumer.
-Kinect is forced if you hate it and the price is higher because of it.
-Somewhat bigger in size if that is a huge factor.


In the end just go find out more about each console and what it can offer. Dont go based of rumor because you will run into things like "family sharing was a demo" or " If online check was in place MS will just shut down their servers and you cant play any of your games" and other idiotic and illogical things like that. The latter is a non issue but you can see how a vocal minority tends to think and spread their illogical concerns. Furthermore, you should probably avoid this place to begin with as there is nothing here but idiotic fanboy wars and people still riding the "MS suckz and is evil and X1 is s***" bandwagon.

Previous gens are not this gen. Digital and cheevos changed everything, lack of BC is a deal breaker IMO.

I think their train of though is that its essential to the console.

They would have included it as part of the console itself but they gave the Kinect a separate case so people can put it on top of the TV and move it around. Otherwise it would just be in one box.

Its kind of like a camera in a smartphone. You dont need to use it, but you are paying for it either way when you buy the phone. This time the camera is much better and usefull though, with the voice and gesture controls and in-game integration. But obviously not everyone likes it and I do agree that having it separate would make a lot more sense. Them including it is more indicative of their inability to properly market and sell its predecessor to the masses, but then again, the newer one is supposedly different and better in every way.
