Sorry I thought I replied earlier those are the same video I was referring to. We'll obviously have to wait and see - at this point I'd say that MS has proven to be more much adapt at getting the online and social aspects right as opposed to Sony who is playing catch up. I mean the UI interface for PS3 is an unmitigated disaster and while they seem to have come a long way if we are to believe the 4 minute video, I think the chips are not in their favor. I'm buying both...
Which are you buying white?
Up to 40%, that seems absurd. Where did you find that stat? As far as the interface video is concerned - check destructoid or kotayu. It's a super cheezy video. The future for consoles (as it has been with music and increasingly movies) is DRM. Why people see this as a major stink is beyond me. Take it on vacation? Who plays video games on vacation? Jesus.
My sense is that over time Salvatore will mature into his father's aesthetic. You can see it slowly happening with Luca...
He is such a style pimp
Sony seems to be much more nimble this go around than MS, that much is obvious. The pricing strategy in particular was a masterstroke - although I'd imagine a similar system loadout (with eye, etc) will come close to Xbox1's base price. I'm still not convinced Sony has done enough to address its wonky online interface and experience - and as I said before, this will be the feature(s) that make or break the race in the long run. The leaked video of some of the features was...
What I'm saying is that the TV will still be the center of our home entertainment, that's not going away anytime soon. I could see a time in the near future where PCs and possibly laptops are replaced by tablets and/or cellphones.
Interesting observations aravenel. I think what people are figuring out is that the TV really does matter and to a certain extent - to control the TV is to control home entertainment. Linking TV content to mobiles and tablets and gaming consoles is what Microsoft is attempting to do but in the end Google will out resource and possibly outsmart them. You can see it happening in mobile, the iphone is slowly loosing its grip. They are definitely taking the back door approach...
I agree Foo - its just a matter of time for Sony. The fact is, this might be Microsoft's last run as well. Once Google figures out Fiber the next frontier is home entertainment including gaming.
A few things to add: Xbox has a clear controller advantage Xbox has built a UI that is proven and that an entire generation of gamers have been playing on - links to friends, online content, tv, internet, etc Buying patterns in the next cycle will be as much about social aspects as they will be about graphical prowess and exclusive content: Massive head start and edge on social for Xbox Graphical edge to Sony although it remains to be seen how big of a difference...
