Just watched a video from Boogie and his opinions on the two new consoles. Very honest. http://youtube.com/watch?v=XIZiA_qzYA4

He speaks sense. I do think though that Xbox One's "entertainment" aspect is overplayed abit by other people judging by that, you still have entertainment features with the PS4 but just without Kinect but the PS4 camera looks pretty good.

He's the real-life alter ego of Francis, and is generally very sensible and worth a watch. Although I tend to watch his Francis videos more than his IRL ones, as Francis is hilarious.

Hes a really decent bloke who by his own admission has an eating disorder and had a particularly tough life.

Sid Shuman from Sony called out to his house and loaned him an PS4 for a few hours so he could shoot a few videos with it. His unboxing video in his character Francis was released was rivalling the official unboxing from Sony (pretty sure Francis one has more views on youtube ) Sony then flew him and his wife out to their PS4 event launch in New York on all expenses paid trip. Gave him an engraved PS4 and a load of games.

Major Nelson from xbox then called out to his house gave him an xbox one loads of games and engraved joypads for himself and his wife. Despite all the shite gave Microsoft over the years. Nelson even sat down for a 15 minute interview in which Boogie was pretty honest in what he thought of them. Major Nelson seems like a decent bloke and they shot this video which i think is hilarious.

Loved the unboxing when he threw the Xbox360 away...lol

Also interesting to note that in his latest video about his trip to NY, he mentions meeting Yoshido (sp) and Yosh telling him that MP3 and DNLA will be coming soon in a patch to the PS4.

I thought it was only my kids that did it, bloody hell he's got some following. Think my kids watch his videos more than they play the game.

I think he is spot on with his opinions, I've had a ps3 and 360 this gen but barely played the ps3 except for their exclusives as I've always preferred the 360 controller and my friends have that system... I really haven't decided which next gen system I want but I am leaning towards the ps4... Really could go either way and still be happy

Ok just watched them. He obviously has a slight bias towards ps4 but this his personal choice. Notice didn't really mention forza which is a huge xbox1 draw.
For me it's about battlefield and both should play it really well

He made a few good points for both.

He said exactly why I'm getting an Xbox One instead of a PS4. I'm not much of a console gamer, as I play my games on my gaming PC. I'm getting an Xbox One for the multimedia side of things, and the fact that it plays games is just a bonus for me. I've always been a PlayStation gamer, but I've lost interest in hardcore console gaming. That, and Project Spark looks amazing. I've always wanted to be a game designer, and that game looks like a lot of fun for people like me.

He may not, but since the Xbone is the most unpopular kid in class on the internet it wouldn't really be in his best interests to side with it in any way or offer any positive discourse when he's drawing a revenue from viewers who loved to watch him hurl an Xbox 360 over his shoulder to make way for his shiny new PS4.

Probably best not to mention Forza either.

So a person gives their honest opinion on youtube and you think he is lying and only likes the PS4 more because its more popular

Do tell though what do you think would happen to him and his youtube work had he chosen X1 as the better console? what are these interest he is protecting? and here's the big one, did you even watch the full video? he bloody praises the X1 a lot, just his conclusion is that out of the two PS4 is better for gaming and X1 is better for multimedia, we already know that to be true (from a technical standpoint at least)

Do you even read what you right when your pro MS bullshit comes out your mouth or in this case fingers, i'm 100% if he would of chosen X1 you'd be lauding his video

Most people secretly prefer the Xbox 1 but are too scared to support it and instead publicly favour the PS4 to look cool

Hmm, think I'll release a PS4 body panel skinning kit for XB1, so your XB1 will look like a PS4.

"Hey, is that a PS4? I thought they were way smaller than that?"

"No, yeah, it's a PS4 XTRA PHAT. It's limited edition. XBox One compatible too, here - let me show you Forza 5 on it"

It's common sense mate, but I don't really care for his opinion either way so no I really wouldn't be doing that.

Besides, being popular sucks, Go team underdog!

HERE IN THE UK, I think the ps4 is the better games console.
When you consider that alot of the x1 tv stuff won't work here with Sky or Virgin for the foreseeable future. The games x-gen are not looking as good. The only reason x1 will sell as much this gen is the same reason the ps3 did last gen. Brand loyalty. Which is strange because M$ are as loyal as a cat.

Maybe the same could be said for certain people on here. But it's still his opinion and people seem to care about what he say more than anyone on here.

I've always seen the Xbox as the "popular console" as a PS as the all round safe choice. You never see the cool kids playing Playstation on these US T.V shows, it's always Xbox.
