You make your allegiances when you're young.


I mean, Xbox came out when I was in 6th grade. I'm 23 now. I think Xbox's community grew to be that 15-19 crowd and just never changed. I did feel a little old on XBL when dealing with immature adolescents who had their parents pay for everything and made gaming their life.

I don't use my PS3 for browsing the internet. It's made for playing games.

That's exactly me. I went PS1>PS2 then Xbox 360 just because I preferred it.

I've always done this anyway. It speeds up loading, reduces heat and prevents drive failure as you mentioned. Plus the new slim models have an upgraded disk drive I think (don't quote me).



I had the money for a 120gb HDD from release so I was lucky I guess but I've had it for 3 years and it's survived an earthquake and has never failed, probably because I looked after it. Both consoles are great but I just enjoyed the xbox more. Limiting yourself to one console just seems stupid to me.


I was a Xbox fanboy through and through. I had my 360 on a locker grate in the middle of my room for the last 4 years. Trust me, I'm not limiting myself, M$ ruled itself out. I'm more open to getting a Wii.

As you should. But someone posted the ps3's web browser as an advantage. Tbh, both consoles suck for web browsing but the ps3 is just pathetic in that regard.

It works for me. And PS3 had the constantly-updating Xbox beaten to that punch for a year... same with built in wi-fi adapters.

This pissed me off. Oh, you've bought an Xbox, you wanna go online? That'll be 5 a month please. Oh and you need to spend 25 on a wifi adapter. I just bridged my connection from my laptop, **** adapters.

Yeah, I had to direct connect too. Their adapters weren't even good and dropped signal until the Wireless G and N ones came out.

For the PC gamers in here, you have incentives for wanting the new consoles.

Both the PS4 and NextBox are rumored to be using x64 architecture, which is extremely similar to the x86_64 architecture that is in the vast majority of PCs today. Both systems are also rumored to use 8 core CPUs, and AMD Southern Islands GPUs (Radeon HD 6000 series) So what does this mean?

Multi-platform games should be easier to port and optimize for the PC, seeing as both consoles basically are PCs. The 8 core CPUs should also mean we finally see devs implementing better multi-thread support in their games. Also, the HD 6000 series has DirectX11 support. So we'll finally start to see the majority of new PC games use DirectX11, which has some nice sexy features that have been absent from the majority of multi-platform PC releases.

I heard a rumour that the nextgen xbox would be a close price to the current one. Would be amazing if they could pull that off with those specs

So I'll need TWO GTX 680s to feel superior now? Damnit, that sucks.

Edit: Honestly, if GTA V comes out on the new consoles I'm just going to buy one to put in my room, because sharing is gehy.

Skipping the Xbox fanboyism community.

I just hope for retrocompatibillity, i have a shitload of nice games lying around there for a replay.
Also, hope they keep using blu ray, its a blessing in durabillity plus gives away more space to develop games (ie MGS4).
Oh and the free online
I don't give a shit 'bout the price, anything under 1st / 2nd gen PS3 prices will do the trick.

Oh snap, I forgot that Steam is making a console. I hope the other next gen consoles suffer a painful death.

My decision to buy the PS4 will rest solely on GTAV.

And subsequent reviews of the PS4.

Yeah, I ain't gonna buy it I don't think.

The PS3 is fine, even though most games are boring now and diluted. PS4 games will probably be diluted with better graphics. No thanks.
