    I wrote this up. And no, (from what I can find,) you cannot play XB1 disks from the XB1. You still must install it. That was never reversed. Look it up if you don't believe me! - If you find it's incorrect, please let me know so I can edit! Thanks!

    Good job!
    I did not know Xbox One required disc installation. That's news to me!
    One thing that seems weird, PS+ is required to use the cloud saving/uploading feature on Vita, but it's not blocked on PS4. Huh.

    As far as the can't-play-from-disk thing for the XB1, I've checked their site many times, looking around for updates on that. On the article which shows the 'changes' they've made with the XB1, they never discussed that, so I'm assuming they're the same. I've also looked it up to make sure it's correct that they're keeping the disk-to-install thing there, and I've found many articles saying that hasn't changed.
    I could be wrong, but so far it all points to not being changed. :)

    Yessir! They're changing that with the PS4! However, they may or may not be with the Vita/PS3. I'd assume they'd make it free for those two systems, as well :) Thank you so much for the compliment!


    Thanks for the compliment! :)

    And well, I would, but that is more of a 'promotion' which ends in November or December (Can't remember exactly when. It's either right before the XB1 launches, or until December)

    Thanks for the suggestion though!

    If anyone else has suggestions, lemme know :)

    My bad I thought they extended it to compete with Plus but I guess not.

    N'aw, it's just a promotion, really :)

    That's alright! Anyhow, I'm super psyched for this generation!

    Erhm, well... I don't want to sound one-way-or-the-other, here, but I think that the two consoles I'm placing here are pretty on-par, and I don't think it'd really make much sense to fit the WiiU in there.

    I mean, technically, I can, but I'd rather not haha!

    I know a lot of misinformation had been spreading about these two consoles, specifically, so I thought I'd just focus on these ones, attempting to explain the legitimacy.

    Hahaha! Yeah, I guess you're right! But, hey, I PC game. But I don't see it as a "Console". I see a Computer as a Computer. It can play games, but it's not mainly for games.

    In fact, I mostly PC game, but I think comparing PCs with consoles is pretty ridiculous, as it's like comparing apples to oranges. They're both fruits, but not the same kind.

    Here's my unbiased comparison of the Xbox One and PS4:

    Wait till they come out. Trying to make any kind of assumptions based on corporate generated hype is stupid. It all depends on the games, and deep down we all know both consoles are going to have the same issue the Wii U has, and that's lack of games for months after release. It is stupid to even compare the two until time has passed AFTER their release and we can make better judgements based on experiences on both consoles. At the end of the day, what does it even matter when it's the games that should sell the console, not the other way around. So which is better? Well, what games do you want to play?

    I think you've got the wrong idea. I've stated confirmed facts. I don't see how waiting will change that. I'm not making any judgements.

    It's not so much aimed at you, but how stupid the whole idea of comparing two unreleased consoles to each other is. To me, it's like trying to compare a car I might buy 5 years from now to a car I might buy 10 years from now. Simply put, I have no idea how the two cars will compare because I don't have them yet. And who knows, maybe I'll just stick with my current car and just keep it fixed up. Sure, not the best comparison, as cars can still be relevant 10-20+ years down the line if kept in good shape, but you get my meaning.

    The only useful comparison (except maybe the online services) are the video game libraries.

    I disagree, sir, if that's alright!

    I think the software and hardware are very important.

    GDDR5 vs DDR3, makes a difference, as well as many other things. Sony's Processor runs at 1.84tflops, which is better than the one XB1 has in its console.

    Multitasking; forgive me if that doesn't make sense

    I saw the title and it made me chuckle, but this is some interesting information you've got here. I believe that computers, laptops, notebooks, smartphones, and all other similar electronic objects should be used for everything not specifically intended for gaming. Bicrosoft and Sony make game consoles; that should be their sole purpose. I know I'm dissing the internet part of these consoles, but that shouldn't get you carried away with what their original purpose is. And I forgot the computers some of you build that're specifically intended for gaming: that's fine.

    Aaah Tempers.
    Can't keep a thread open for 16 posts before they start bullying each other :lol:

    Anyway, nice comparison Thirty3Three.
    Got to say that when you look at price/quality you get quite more with the PS4.
    Of course a huge factor of sales does depend on the games and if I compare the PS exclusive francises to the XBox exclusive ones, I have to say I also prefer the PS.
    Hopefully they won't make the same mistake as they did with the PSVita. I love my Vita and have played lots on it (Persona 4, Gravity Rush and Virtue's Last Reward), but they should really release some 'big' games like a good AC game or shooter and not the crappy ones they gave us up till now.

    Thanks, DragorianSword :)
    I appreciate the compliments!

    And I agree on all of that! I'm sure they'll do very, very well this gen! I have my PS4 on preorder, and am likely going to buy a WiiU a few years later :)
