Okay so E3's rocking this week. We've been hearing he good, the bad and the ugly on both consoles. Let's keep this thread rocking so we all can make sound decisions on what our next gen-console will be. I need to make my decision based on what the community here is doing. After all you, you guys are a HUGE part of what makes my gaming experience. (Don't let it go to your heads tho!)

I have honestly felt the gaming thing has been completely stagnant lately, after some serious thought I think I know why. I've been use to supporting a new console at least every 4 to 5 years since the NES! Having the X-Box and the 360 ride to nearly 10 years was one heck of a ride. But how much more of these do we really need. Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo ODST, Halo Reach, Halo 4! Don't even make me list off all the COD games, sheet! Same goes with the repeating sport games, it's the same over and over and over. I think this is a HUGE part of the reason I'm losing interest and fast in the gaming realm as of late, there's just nothing new and exciting on the Microsuck side of things.

Now let's look at the features we know are coming with the two consoles.

X-Box One - Must be connected to the internet at all times to play, even a single player game. Kinect MUST be connected at all times. No used games or trading of games. Still paying for the online service, even to access Netflix or Hulu. You can watch T.V., who gives a chit! Our Arcade games will NOT carry over to the new deck. Your DL Content will not carry over. No backwards compatibility?

PS4 - You can buy, sell or trade used games. The online PSN service is free, however they state there will now be a PSN+ service that will be much better and reliable. At 50 bucks a year it's already cheaper than LIVE. They boast the communication will now work properly and you will get goodies as well. They've been doing it lately with the PSN service in the past year giving away nearly 60 free downloadable games to the community. And not chitty arcade games like Undertow either, real deal games like Dues-Ex and such. It does not need to be connected to the internet to play offline games. You can watch Netflix or Hulu as well as 180 other apps using just the free PSN service.

I'm sure there's much more I'm missing so help a Ferret out here. The PS4 sounds like a gamers system and the One sounds like a entertainment hub. I relate this change to what I went through in the past with my television service. I had cable for so long I was scared to switch to Directv. Then when I did it was the coolest thing EVER! After ten years of Directv I was scared to switch to Uverse. Now we LOVE our UVERSE!

Right now I'm leaning heavy towards to the Playstation, what are you all thinking? I too will keep my 360 and continue to play until the servers are dead. But Ferret's jonsing for a new deck and Logizzle will have a new one for x-mas no doubt. But what should we choose?

HELP!

For the reasons stated above, I'm leaning toward the PS4 if I get anything at all.

I too will go with whatever my friends go with....but that said, I will probably end up with both. There are aspects I like and dislike for both. But even thought I fought through 10 360 systems with ring of death issues, I still prefered it over my PS3 so much so that I traded it in. I thought Sony had a better system at launch of the PS3, but I still loved my 360 more. I think until I hear how "the one" performs from people I know and respect, I may not make a true decision on which the final path shall be....and this is coming from someone who already has "one" reserved.

I thought it was LAME that an email I got from Microsoft said I would be rewarded with a "Special Achievement" for reserving the new "One", along with some special-branded controller. Some of you might have received that email as well. Let's see, after 10 years of purchasing hardware and software to support your system, and you want to reward me with fantasy ACHIEVEMENT POINTS that hold absolutely zero value? M$ thinks consumers are stupid, and well, they're kinda right......but I think I'll be ready to give Sony the nod when I purchase my next system. Not sure when I'll jump in, and I'll keep the 360 fo-sho. This latest console war will be one for the ages and taught in business and marketing classes for years to come.

I'll put it in perspective for you guys now. The one and only reason why all of us have gamed on the 360 was its online infrastructure. Party Chat/cross game chat was a big reason and having easy access to friends list and responding with messages. Now FINALLY Sony has caught up. Yup, the PS4 will finally feature cross-game chat and cleaner interface when it comes to online gaming/friends list/messages etc.

Xbox One:

Cons:

Always Online.
Check-in every 24hrs.
Playing at a friends house the check-in is every 1-2hrs.
Lending games to friends once only and only to friends that are on your friends list for 30+ days.
Trading in games is limited and not yet fully talked about.
Non-removable 500GB harddrive.
Must install ALL games played ...meaning HDD will fill up fast.
Kinect must be plugged in at all times.
Kinect can be turned off but do you guys really trust the "off" button as an "off" button 100%? Government is spying on you, lol.
Netflix is for Gold Members only and other TV features most likely.

Pros:

Great exclusive games that we all love and Halo will finally be in 60fps.
Always online means updates are done and ready while you sleep.
Friends list extended to 1000.
Amazing controller.

PS4:

Cons:

Finally catching up to the 360 when it comes to online.
PS Plus required for online gaming.

Pros:

Finally catching up to the 360 when it comes to online.
Exclusives.
Sony is very supportive to independent developers. You'll see a lot of old school style and rare games.
The new controller is finally comfortable and similar to the 360 pad.
No limit to used games unless otherwise noted by the publishers.
Renting and trading-in games works the same as now.
Netflix works without PS Plus.


...that's all I got so far.

I agree 100% with you, Qu. Nice write-up. I bought my original xbox (and ditched my PS2) because of online gaming (and graphically, the xbox looked a bit better). I don't know if I should pre-order now, or wait until after the holidays and continue to play some of the upcoming titles that I have pre-ordered on my 360 (GTA5, BF 4, COD-Ghosts, Project Cars, etc). So for me, it's not so much about which console to choose, but a matter of WHEN. Are my buddies going to be playing a new system while I'm still on the 360???

Wow, I still find it hard to believe that most if not all of you guys are switching. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited that the PS4 has so much interest but I'm also mad/sad at Microsoft for messing up the new Xbox One infrastructure. Why did they change something that wasn't broken? Sony left the PS4 alone and it's basically just a step up from PS3 in all departments. Microsoft went 180 on us, thus it's gonna loose most of its core gamers that have been there since day one...SAD!

i know ill be switching to the ps4 already pre ordered mine aswell... this comment from mircosoft is pretty arrogant aswell ...

“"Fortunately we have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity; it’s called Xbox 360,” said Mattrick.

and the first comment to that story was ... No...its called PS4.

I'm considering switching to PS4. Not happy with the XBONE. I read that Sony is planning on supporting old games using emulators. Does this mean we could play TOCA 2 if we all had PS4's ????? That would be amazing and a real blast from the past! Would you play an old game like TOCA 2 if the PS4 supported it?

So...what are everyones thoughts on the new consoles if they picked them up? I have both, and am so far liking the Xbox One more than the PS4. I had a weeks worth of network issues with the PS4 that totally irked me. Interested in hearing thoughts of those whom have picked up. I still however am very vested in the 360 and gaming with my friends....just need to have more time!

Haven't had a chance yet to check out a PS4, but I have been really enjoying my Xbox One and Forza 5. Although Forza 5 doesn't have as much content as previous ones, it's still probably my favourite game of the series. My favourite feature of the Xbox One is the "XBOX RECORD THAT" It is awesome! When reading into the next gen all I was thinking about that feature on both systems was more crappy COD headshot videos to take over YouTube.. but in reality I am loving it and am using it often to record cool/funny/awesome/epic things with my friends. I loved how after saving a clip to SkyDrive, which was pretty fast, I opened up my iPad and was immediately able to watch it on there and on my Windows Phone with no issues. I went back onto the 360 for the first time this past weekend to play NHL 14 with my friends, and there was a couple times I wanted to say XBOX RECORD THAT to save a cool moment that happened. I felt so restricted all of a sudden not being able to share those moments lol

The Xbox One controller is incredible. I can't yet comment on the bumper buttons, as Forza 5 really doesn't use them, but it is the greatest controller. It is so much more comfortable in the hand than the 360s, and that thing was pretty good. Playing the 360 again this weekend though I was complaining about the 360 controller lol. The XBox One controller just fits into my hand so perfectly, and those rumble triggers surprisingly add a lot to Forza.
The only thing I'm not liking is the new screwless design has left the controller 'weaker.' It bends/flexes a bit in my hand when I've got a death grip going and I feel like I'm eventually going to break the thing in half. I suppose it could just be the plastic shell on the outside moving around, but it does make it feel weaker and like you can break it.
