I need a better answer than that... What to buy exactly? A tablet? A desktop? Make my own computer? I've never even made my own PC before so don't know what I'm doing.

Well depends on what you want it for. Just surfing get a tablet, creating stuff get a laptop. Don't bother with desktop as I prefer to have the portability
I definitely want a Windows 8 machine though. I was look at the Surface 2 but it's like 360 quid!
if u are going w8 tablet much sure it is high end as many of the low ends won't play games or crash when running them
Terrin - What specs would be considered high-end?
Nope......about 20-30 hours.
in theory it is a more powerful machine but sony had a great campaign and ms fumbled but as long as ms turns out great games it will be all good
Why do think Xbox One is better?

Because of its better online service Xbox Live, more and better exclusives, the UI is like Windows 8 which I like, achievements, gamerscore
Unified with hotmail services (now called Outlook), MS 's service is more secure and they have more experience with online stuff
Cloud processing, controller, superior voice chat codec and digital headset connection not 3.5mm. Titanfall, Halo, Gears, Forza, Dead Rising
@Terrin X1 is getting X11.2 :) But honestly I have no idea what it means. Also PS4's DDR5 RAM most of it is used for the UI and not games.
You didn't give me a single reason to think I was missing out by not owning an X1. NOBODY buys a console for its hotmail unification / codec quality / UI (W8 is pants)
Better online is debatable. Having been an XB Live customer for 5 years I've not noticed any difference since switching to a PS4
I don't think XB Live throws you a next gen game to play every month at no extra cost like PS+ does
More and better exclusives? Only game I'm vaguely interested in is Titanfall and I'll likely get it for my PC if my real life 360 mates don't get it
Not used the X1 pad but the 360 pad feels clunky going back to it after using the DS4
Didn't MS just bring out a 19.95 adaptor to allow people to use 3.5mm headsets? How is that a plus point? You enjoy being forced to buy a new headset?
I don't really understand why people fanatically align themselves to a brand. I'm loyal only to what suits ME as a gamer
MS certainly don't deserve to keep my custom after all that shit they tried to pull.
That said, I've not used an X1 so don't feel I've any right to criticise it. Can you say the same about the PS4?
Damn, if you're going to say a bunch of shit and then add "I've never used an XB1" at the end, what is the point? I can list TONS of reasons why I think XB1 is better.
Controller is leaps and bounds better. Can't go back to the 360 control after using this, and my DS4 left thumb stick is starting to degrade, a common problem supposedly
XBL Cloud Compute servers, TF beta had over a million ppl playing at a given time, ran SMOOTH AS BUTTER. PvZ:GW just came out using shitty EA Origin servers and it can't
Connect half the time, has bad lag here and there, and only a couple thousand playing at a given time. Why don't they use XBl servers? B/c EA is greedy as all hell
Games are subjective but MS has an impressive lineup thus far and a great deal of AAA games on the way that are unique and not the usual dude to - Quantum Break,
Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive, Below, Platinum title, just to name a few. And so many more hints from Spencer. I don't give a shit about Fable, so this is refreshing
Usual dudebro* damn spellcheck
Kinect voice commands are fucking amazing. Near 100% accuracy for me and being able to say Xbox, record that after an amazing moment is great, no need to stop gameplay
On the contrary my PS4 doesnt even keep the moments I try to capture sometimes. Like a few days ago in BF4 it recorded some random 15mins and not what I wanted it to
And that's just the tip of the iceberg with voice...the new Twitch integration seems 100x better than PS4 Twitch: full chat, emoticons, color, can assign mods, invite ppl
From broadcast to party/ game,& dat Kinect 1080p full motion cam looks amazing (did you see the testers streaming PvZ yesterday from XB1?). PSeye looks like a $20 webcam
In comparison when you see them side by side streaming. Even if you dont use it for Skype to see how top-notch the camera is, streaming shows how good it is
Then you have UI, which MS is the king of (look at last Gen 360 launch and then latest 360 UI). In two months we get MUCH needed updates that are gamechangers. Also
The VP of Xbox said more updates are coming. So we're getting improvements all the time meanwhile all Ps4 has had were "stability updates" & it really needs some UI fixes
Yeah i don't the hate of Windows 8, it gets the job done. I'd rather be with a company that's been making OSes for years. Rather than Sony who can't make proper UIs.
Yeah. I haven't even touched on all the reasons why I vastly prefer Xbox One, but my point is that everyone who I know tried one has a positive opinion about it.
Unless that had a preinstalled bias, that is. Ppl switched to PS4 due to the negative blunder on MS part combined with the rabid overreaction due to fanboys, BUT I know
That in the coming months/years, people will realize XB1 is a great platform and wonder where all the negativity even came from.
Also he mentioned the XB1 headset adapter. IT ONLY EXISTS.because Xbox One uses superior codecs for their headsets compared to last Gen and PS4. Better sounding voice etc
So naturally old headsets wouldn't work. People bitched. Now there's a solution. That's it. People seem to forget about this for some reason.
If you read back my comments and are astute enough you'll spot that none of them actually criticised the X1 but were actually directed at MS / points made by Ross
As I stated being an MS customer for some time has earned me the right to criticise them. Personally I don't give a shiny shit about the console war but I am regularly e
I'm a fan of gaming NOT faceless, multi-national corporations. Yes, Sony fits that bill but they're yet to anger me in the way MS constantly did when I was an Xbox only g
If I'm choosing between a company who consistently release new IP's even towards the end of a product cycle or one that tried to strip away my consumer rights with their
I can't really vouch for deterioating DS4 sticks as both of mine are fine but I tend to look after my shit. I'd also be pretty dumbfounded if there weren't any knackered
Also having a shit-ton of servers and cloud computing are too totally different beasts but I fully agree with your point about EA .... they NEVER seem to be prepared?!
Again stuff like Skype / Twitch / Kinect whilst I'm sure are all great just don't interest me in the slightest but I can see the allure for others
I'd also argue that the forthcoming VR-headsets from Sony will do more for the advance of gaming than an all-seeing spycam that measures your moob jiggle whilst running
You may be surprised to learn I don't want the X1 to fail and I'm not a hater. I just have no interest in it myself but I enjoy the debate
And don't take all this stuff as a personal attack ... as it isn't. I'm pro-choice
Just noticed a few of my comments got clipped but hopefully you can guess the ending :s
Believe me, I'm not taking your comments as a personal attack, but again, how can one take you seriously when you say things like "all seeing spycam?" Spy, how?
Aside from Microsoft being one of the most richest companies in the world alone with Google, Apple, etc, and how the NSA obviously uses data from these bigwigs from other
Means, there is no correlation. Just like they just announced they looked into using the Kinect and PS Eye camera to collect data but websites only mentioned the Kinect:
I don't understand why the original source mentions PS eye and Kinect but websites purposefully sensationalize articles and mention only Kinect just for hits
And Microsoft had their VR leaked ages ago before Sony or Oculus : Fortaleza or whatever the hell its called. There's no way Sony will be the only ones with a VR headset
Not to ramble but looking after your "shit" means nothing because this is a widespread problem with the DS4, even a multi-thousand post topic on GAF (which are proSony)
I have tens of thousands of dollars of video game merchandise and am a collector so I take damn well good care of my shit. It's not my fault Sony used cheap rubber
I'm not condemning you or saying you want it to fail so no need to keep defending yourself, just saying that some things you say don't seem to make sense. The truth is
These companies want MONEY. Sony took the camera out the box to lower the cost (even though PS4 comes with Playroom built in) to one up the competition, not because
Gamers want choice. Same with MS, both do things for money and profits and if the marketing can be done right, or an agenda fulfill their ends, that's how it works.
Also want to touch on new IPs, notice the vast majority of those studios were shut down and/or had games completely FLOP. Sony shuts off those servers (MAG, Socom)
In a few years, and even mega hits like GT5 Sony removes DLC from the game just to cater to GT6 (which, btw, flopped, they should've put it on PS4) which hurts consumers
Meanwhile Microsoft shut down Halo 2 servers almost a decade after launch and people were having a FIELD day attacking "m$." IGN, gfaqs and Twitter that day.. *shudder*
With Sony laying off workers, selling VAIO, subsidizing off their TV business, closing 60% of their stores, and selling their key buildings just to make ends meet, you
Best believe you won't see that refresh of new IPs anymore. Even Sony said after TLG they won't spent 7 years on a game again. So, yeah.
Clearly hit a nerve with the spy cam comment. It's unfortunate MS will have to keep denying this but the sad fact is they will whether you believe them or not
But as for not taking me seriously because I echoed the concerns of a large percentage of gamers is being unfairly dismissive
Can you prove MS aren't harvesting advertising information off you? Have any essential games surfaced for the Kinect yet?
Fully aware how business works. You could liken Sony removing the camera to MS buying Titanfall. Like you say, competition ;)
I don't think Sony are in any financial trouble when they have assets worth 160 billion. However selling off underperforming divisions is a sad fact of corporate business
Again I can only go off my own experience but both my joypads are fine. Not quite sure what you want me to say about that?
It's always sad when servers for ANY game are shut down but if people aren't playing it seems a waste of resources that could be used elsewhere
Anyway dude these conversations can go on forever but the bottom line is personal choice. We both made one and are enjoying the outcome, that's all that matters
Obviously only one comment stuck in my mind..... PS+ Really? Free Online but now we will make you pay for our already crappy online service.......
....Oh but hey we will let you "Borrow" games as long as your a PS+ member if you choose not to pay anymore you no longer have the "Free" Games. Thumbs Up For Sony!
I own every system so I can say without a doubt the Xbox One is the better system.....and I am a Sony Fanboy. So let's look at Sony's awesome marketing...."MS Sucks."
Rule #1 never talk about your competition , that is free advertisement. If your only thing you can say is how bad the competition is then your system has nothing positive
PS3 was a 500.00 dollar paperweight since I bought it at Launch. Online was horrid, in-game friends list to invite friends to games again thumbs up Sony....
....Party Chat on PS3 was awesome too you can't play games while chatting you had to be in the Party Chat Lobby..Oh and Sony being hacked and Shut Down for over a month
But let me get back to just PS4 same controller which was great back on the PS2 in contrast to N64, Gamecube, or even Original Xbox controller....
Hit a nerve, just because I mention that original sources mention PS ryr along with Kinect and media only mentioning Kinect? See, that's a fact, links prove it. However,
But the 360 controller was everything a controller should be and made the PS3 controller feel like a turd. XB1 controller is improved over the 360 and made even better.
The PS4 is the same garbage with a touch pad.....Awesome. Not to mention the quality of the online service still sucks and launch titles were a joke.
ps eye* However, speculation and rumors with no foundation that are denied are a "concern?" No, they're not. Just lots of uneducated and/or misinformed people.
Killzone the "Halo Killer" has never lived up to the hype and PS4 incarnation is the worst yet. Knack....worst $50 on a AAA title, more Sony propaganda
Playing COD Ghosts on PS4 makes me feel like I am the worlds best player....that tells alot about an online community. I am good but not that good.
Can you prove that MS is indeed harvesting information from Kinect? Its the fastest selling electronic device in the world according to Guinness; there must be SOME kind
Of proof, some sliver of information to go by. But no, there is none. Just fanboys spreading FUD and misinformation like they hold stock in these companies, rofl.
So let's talk about Launch titles.......first lets call all cross platform stuff a wash.Dead Rising 3 is amazing and at least a 7/10 if not 8/10
And again, why isn't PSeye or Sony mentioned even though the original article mentions them? Who's to say they aren't "harvesting information?" Hint: they aren't.
Killzone Shadowfall 5/10 and if generous 6/10Ryse 7/10 only for repetativeness but best launch title graphics from either system
Knack 4/10 and that's being extremely generous......Resogun is awesome 7/10.....compared to Lococycle 5/10
Winner based on Metacritic numbers and not mine Xbox One....Winner from me a Sony Fanboy....Xbox One
Oh and if you bring up processing power, I have something for you. Sega Master System was far superior on specs that the NES. History doesn't care about raw power numbers
I don't see what was the point of bringing up Titanfall being an MS exclusive, but being a PS4 only owner, I can see why that game struck a nerve with you, lol.
....it only cares about the units sold. Gamers care about the quality of the games and the experience overall. From that Nintendo has never let me down in terms of games
So XB1 or PS4 will never be a debate, just like PS3 vs 360 was never a debate. 360 sold more, better games, better experience. PS3 great Bluray player thats it.
That is leaving out the single most important aspect of why you are on this site discussing in this status.....Achievements.
Of course Sony is in financial trouble. Downgraded to "junk status" by multiple credit unions, selling staple properties, letting go of 5,000 employees, selling laptop/TV
Having assets doesnt really mean a lot in regards to all this and it reallllyyy seems like you're reaching hard..
Honestly I'm only responding so much BC I'm bored at work, because I don't normally care TOO much for this type of convo, I just hate misinformation and FUD.
Dang .. massive wall of text. Not really going to be able to respond to all that as I don't have time but will maybe tackle a few new issues raised
Firstly, why don't you guys just sell your PS4s if they're bringing so much misery to your lives. With the current shortage you should make a tidy profit
I don't think either side had anything to brag about with the launch titles. Personally, Dead Rising 1 + 2 bored the pants off me ... I can't see DR3 changing my opinion
COD Ghosts is awful but I'm fairly sure it's as bad on every other platform. We can all agree that both consoles have got some awesome games on the horizon
Kinda pointless throwing up the PS3 vs 360 battle as that's a totally different debate and has no baring on the current console situation. I was 360 btw
The whole 'PS+ is just rentals' has to be the LAMEST complaint you can level at a service. So what?
Once I finish a game it gets uninstalled / sold / traded in. I've no interest in playing it any more ... very few games are that good they warrant keeping
Some people (Ross included) actually pay to rent games from services like Gamefly. Do they get upset when they have to return them?
I could counter to you that you are only renting access to the MP portion of all your games which is EVEN WORSE as you actually already paid good money for them
Finally if they're gonna keep throwing games at you every month why would you even consider to stop paying for PS+?
It's certainly a better incentive to keep your subs up to date than blocking off access to your Netflix account
Re: Titanfall: I have a gaming PC ... it not being on PS4 is a none issue for me
Obviously you must be talking to him, and not me. But you seem to desperately be trying to reassure yourself for switching to Playstation? I guess u used to like chievos?
Why would I sell my PS4? Misery....what? And what profits? They're in stock in my store as we speak.. U seem to be talking all this personally, like buyer's remorse? Lol
I noticed you didn't get back at any of my points and only his (which I didn't bother reading) so I'm gonna take that as a definitive answer. No need to keep rambling on.
Not reassuring myself at all bud. I'm more than happy with my purchase. This conversation will just go round in circles though so we're all wasting out time
The selling your PS4 line was joke ... everybody seems to be getting a bit tense so was just trying to lighten the mood a bit ;)
I didn't check your link either truth be told ... as long as you're happy with Kinect that's all that matters
I think we should just agree to disagree at this point. :)
Always a hot topic ;)
