Next gen systems!

Hey guys, just wanted to make a quick thread about the next gen systems. I was planning in ordering a Xbox one tomorrow morning, but this whole "spy camera and mic" thing has got me weirded out.

Any thoughts on that? Think people are blowing its seriousness out of proportion? Or should I steer clear?

I would love to stay with Xbox but idk if I can now.

No matter what you're on, you're already being spied on. The xbox one seems a little "naziest" so to speak. Literally pay for basically a 360 that looks different. It's not worth it imo. But hey, I prefer sony over xbox any day.

I hear ya, im an xbox fan but Im really uncomfortable with the kinect always being on...seems like another way for the government to spy on you cause I read that it has to have access to the internet once a day. But besides that, it seems like they have focused too much on the media center aspect rather than the gaming. And they will be raising live prices while playstation remains free, and microsoft will also make you purchase a "right to play pass" with used games because they want in on the used market profits...I think ps4 has my vote this time around

Look at some of the apps on your phone. It clearly states that by allowing the install it's able to record audio, take pictures and videos at any time without you knowing. just about anything that has a camera and internet access can be overroad.

Back on topic, I believe sony just knocked the next gen consoles out of the ball park. They literally crapped on microsoft and nintendo. They honestky put a lot of thought and work into this new system. Price is fair, has a crap ton of memory and an excellent graphics card. I'm waiting to see what prices the games will fall in to. I still believe the ps3 hasn't even been topped out yet. People were downloading and installing windows xp on it. But unfortunately, the main person who wrote up the tutorial and all that was arrested for it. Crazy right?! If you bought it, it's considered your personal property. Why can't we mod things how we want too without any worries.

yeah gotta be careful with those apps. Privacy doesn't exist in the technology era, ive even seen things as crazy as micro drones disguised as birds keeping surveillance on people...any modern car with a nav system or on-star can be tracked. I wish I could live my twenties in the 80s

I looked at specs, ps4 has a better graphics card and though they both have 8 gigs of RAM, most of it is used on the gaming itself on ps4 and the xbox only uses like a 3rd of it for gaming if i remember right

X9

You remembered right, but it's less than a 3rd. They only use 2 gigs of ram to run the whole system. We have a hightech computer at our hands and we can't even use it.

Microsoft wouldn't make something that's going to fail? I take it you haven't heard of Windows 8 then.

I mainly play online multiplayer and the Xbox one is going to be best for that. That's why I'm staying with it. And all these "restrictions" PS4 guys are complaining about, most of them don't even know how they work. In a nut shell, used games now for xbox will now give the developers a chunk of the resale instead of GameStop taking all of it. Sounds fair. And DRM and downloading games is what pc gamers live on now with steam, and they all love it.

Plus is $60 psn is still free.

And since I have both current systems though I just sold the 360 I can say that psn isn't that far behind live now as it currently stands.

I agree that Sony took a dump on Microsoft. Ps4 > Xbox 1 IMO

I will say the Xbox remote is still best for FPS
Live is slightly better. That's about it.

Ps3 currently plays mkv and xvid and avi files where the 360 wouldn't always because of the codecs. I use it as a media center as it is.

I'm sure both will be good but Microsoft dropped the ball on this one.

To play most mainstream multiplayer you have to have plus is what I meant. Comparison wise, i don't see any innovation from Sony that's greater than the new Xbox outside of gaming.
