Hi all, I was just wondering what you thought of these two next-gen consoles. Interestingly I have bought the PS1 and 2, then switched to the 360, so I'm not a 'fanboy' of either company - I just like to play my games in the best way possible and that's about it. However, now that the Xbox One has been announced and seen, I am definitely switching to PS4 (I did consider PC gaming, but that's another story). Where do I begin regarding Microsoft's terrible mistakes? For starters it must always be connected to the Internet. I have heard that Internet is not entirely essential, but come on, you can clearly see that Internet is a big thing for them and the Xbox One was especially built for it. For people like me, who have slow Internet/no Internet, this is a big no-no. Secondly, what's with the fee for playing preowned games? I understand that the publishers and companies don't receive any money when people buy second-hand games, but it is this market that keeps the street stores open. No one can borrow a game from a friend any more without paying an extra fee; no one can be a cheap copy off Ebay. It's truly terrible, in my opinion. Lastly, it will spy on us. I don't mean this in a "oh no the Pentagon are watching us" kind of way, although I have heard that if needed the government can use Xbox One for information. No, what I mean is storing what we watch, what we play. For example, if kinect spots someone who has not bought a copy of a game, it tells you you cannot play. Even when you turn the Xbox off, it will not be completely switched off; it will instead be in a low power state that allows it to continue watching whatever's going on in the room. This isn't huge problem, but there's something about it that I do not like. PS4 was built for gaming, and Xbox One is not primarily for gaming (this has actually been confirmed by Microsoft themselves). For a gaming console, isn't gaming the main thing? Remember the old days when you could just play games and there was no such thing as connecting to the Internet in case the phone rang? I know this looks like a rant post, but it really bothers me. So what do you guys think, all of you gamers out there? Are you buying the PS4 or Xbox, or is PC more your thing? Let me know your opinions, because I would like to consider them for myself. Thanks.
