Good for them. I may be PS4 this generation, but I support and praise any decision that benefits gamers. Competition keeps the market healthy and this is good news for Sony fans as well because it will push Sony to be more competitive with prices and features. I've stated before that I have no 'brand loyalty' to anyone and I don't care who makes my console as long as it does what I need it to do. The winners with this decision are the gamers and that's who really matter.

So as a PC/Wii U owner let me get this straight. It's the same price as the PS4, has the worse versions of multiplat games, and now is missing it's stand out gimmick. Why buy one?


if you like the exclusives obviously. If there's only the PS4 and X1 version then yeah the X1 version will probably be the worst.


There are the exclusives, and there is the controller. The controller is a huge part of the decision to get Xbox One over PS4 to some people. I myself can not stand Sony controllers, which is the reason why I will be getting an Xbox One first. I will get a PS4 sometime in 2015.

About time. Well, it's official, I'll be buying a Xbone probably in a year or two.

The commercial says that Church isn't for perfect people, I guess that's why I'm an atheist.

Are the voice control novelties still around minus a kinect? How does this affect the system resources too?

kinect should have been optional at launch, there was plenty of backlash between e3 and launch.

better late than never though.


they should have even dropped it to 349 since it's weaker, i bet it would have sold more aswell at that price.

I have to say that I was completely wrong on this. Hopefully those that wanted this option are happy.
