IMO the PS4 is catching up to the Xbox 360 with this new console. Xbox’s online already has at least half of these features the PS4 will be getting and I believe the Xbox is more user friendly. The PSN is trash compared to Xbox Live and before anyone says but it’s free, $60 a year for Xbox Live is nothing. If you cant afford that you shouldn’t be buying video games in the first place. Whatever Microsoft comes out with for their next console, I believe it will be far superior than the PS4 in many ways. That is just me though. I have had both a PS3 and Xbox 360, I actually sold my PS3 once and then bought another one for Socom 4, which turned out to be complete shit. Xbox 360 is my favorite. I am really curious about the new Xbox.[/quote]
I’ve never owned an Xbox so I can’t really compare. I originally got a PS3 because of the blu ray player and because every single one of my friends had one. I’m more of a casual gamer and I will get what my other friends have so that way we can interact and play games online together.
This is just my experience on who I’ve talked to so I could be wrong, but it seems to me more adults have a PS3 while more younger people have an Xbox360.[/quote]
From what I have heard and read the main focus of the PS4 is social gaming. With the PS3 there was only in game chat and no party chat. If you wanted to do a chat with friends only you had to be at the dashboard or whatever the PS3 beginning screen is. I believe that is one reason why younger people played on Xbox 360, you could do a party chat in game with whoever you wanted with up to 8 people. PS4 is just now getting this, and that is one reason why I say it is behind the Xbox. But if you have never had a 360 you wouldn’t know any different. [/quote]
Have you been lucky enough to only have one 360 though? all my buds that went with 360’s have all had to buy a minimum of 3 different 360’s since they came out all while i had been rocking my org fat 60 GB ps3. seems like they had to replace alot of controllers and headsets also come to think about it.
To the OP or whoever else about the ps4 are they still planning on the online gaming being free or finally start charging. kept hearing rumors they were going to start charging up until they had that network hack/crash a couple years ago.
