So fellows what system would you get, if you are so inclined?
Going for the PS4? Or for the Xbone?
I am a bit of a Sony fanboy. I like the playstation range and haven't touched Xbox at all. I'm not hardcore, just set in my view.
Basically I like the Sony for that reason. But also because I believe it is a better system and will have the games I want. The few system exclusive games I want are always on PS. And the computing power looks to be a beast.
I realise this is a pretty hot topic. There are always haters on both sides.
So tell us what you will get and why.
I think the PS4 is winning in sales here in Australia. Most places if they have it for pre-order and many don't, give a date of early 2014 as the earliest time you can get it. And it isn't like that is the release date for Australia, we get it Novemeber or somewhere around there. There is just so many pre-orders many places ran out of pre-orders(some how. I think they have a limit to how many orders they can place at once.)
Meanwhile Xbone (Is it supposed be pronounced as X-bone, or Xb-one?) is still available and looks well, very available.
I have always wondered which system has sold more units.
Playstation has pedigree. While Xbox has microsoft behind it....
Also discuss the merits of each system's online costs. To play multiplayer online with PS3 you need to be a plus member(? pretty sure anyway) which equals $5 a month. Not terribly much considering you get free games every month(though as to how long that lasts is unknown) and even after that you still get some niffy stuff for free.
Meanwhile Microsoft can cost you about the same as your monthly internet. I think someone said $40 a month? Sounds too much so I can't really say.
I won't be getting Plus membership unless my mate convinces me and I can get enough internet speed to play properly.
