Ok, here we go again.

You've seen the hardware, the launch line-up and the price.

Who won E3 2013 for you?

Sony by far. They actually care about their customers.

PS4 without a shadow of a doubt.

Killzone: Shadow Fall, Infamous: Second Son, Final Fantasy XV, not to mention Watchdogs and The Division as well as PS4 content added to my existing PS+ subscription and some of those indie games.

PC.

Shame Sony got greedy over the multiplayer, otherwise I'd probably have gone of a PS4.

Microsoft are cash-rich and apparently spent $1billion securing exclusive content for the Xbox One.

Sony, not being able to compete on the financial front, opted to show a bit of love to the customers. They won by a landslide.

They're only doing what MS did when they launched the original Xbox. Plus you get games for PS+ - it's pretty good value you know..

I've no problem with PS+. If people want to subscribe, great, but when it becomes mandatory to subscribe just to play online, it doesn't seem like such a great choice to me, especially if you're not interested in what plus offers.

The freedom to play online for free was what originally made me a PS3 customer over an Xbox one, so I guess I feel more strongly about it than most

Yeah, it's a no-brainer. I think I'll be buying the cheaper, more powerful console that supports used games.

PS4 hands down. I admit, there are games i really like the look of on the XBONE but there are too many reasons to not buy a BONE.

I am not Sony's biggest fan (I've never owned one of their consoles), but it's clear that the PS4 is better than the Xbone in every single way - better specs, no used game restrictions or mandatory online connection, and on top of all that, it's 80 cheaper.

Add to the fact that buying the Xbone increases the likelihood of these restrictions becoming normal next-next-gen, (in the same way paying for online is now a thing), and it's a no brainer.

There really is no contest PS4 is the better console in terms of literally every factor the two can compared on

It has a better price, better games, a better paid online service, better consumer friends policies

and for me the most important thing of the night you can, Play Trade Lend and Sell, this is so huge for me as i can't afford every big new title so i tend to trade in a few newish titles that i don't play anymore towards new games

The xbox did almost nothing right, though they did have three games that i want, why didn't they make three bullet points clear
-These are the policies
-This is why these policies exist
-This is how these policies benefit you the consumer
Had they done that maybe that could of saved the conference but it turned out to be thanks for showing me some third party games i could get on PS4

Tonight, we just heard from Sony that the PlayStation 4 will be coming out this holiday season with a price of $399 in the US, along with first look at the hardware design of the next-gen console.
Along with that information, Sony has revealed that the PS4 will come equipped with a 500 GB HDD, the same size hard drive found in Xbox One.
The PlayStation 4 will also come equipped with a headset and HDMI cable in every box. The PS4 camera, however, will be sold separately for $59. For players who need an extra controller for co-op action, a new Dual Shock 4 controller will cost you $59 as well.

May sound minor but to me the HDMI cable in the price is good. I know you can pick one up for less than 5 but still...

Hey, it's all good - we all have ways of looking at value, you feel strongly about something that was offered for free until now, I certainly wont say you're in the wrong at all.

I'm not getting a Xbone - so my value will be using my XBL money into buying a PS+ sub - so I get to still play online and will get PS+ benefits - so that's my value

yes ps4 for me too hate kinect and not having to stump up 80 extra for somthing i dont want is great. used games another plus point.

i do think sony have done there reaserch and have looked into what gamers want. its greatthat the xbox one responds to voice and getures and you can connect it to your set top box but what if i dont need any of that i certainly dont want to pay for it if i dont want it.

No brainier, PS4! No online authorisation, can lend games, 349 & they're not ramming the camera down your throat like Microsoft are with Kinect (not interested in the camera at all)

Microsoft really have screwed up big time. Plus I already have 320 saved for a next gen console, own a Vita & would subscribe to Plus anyway

Wonder if MS had went 2nd if they'd have changed their price.

Final Fantasy XV, Watchdogs and the Division aren't PS4 exclusive.
