Whats sad is that all of that sounds cool, but in the end, all of that junk will be gone when you pick multiplayer probably.

Glad to know "next gen graphics" for consoles don't amount to much more than pretty arm hair. Everything else is just lol.

It's ok though you can be selfish and choose to sacrifice the lives of many so you can get your dog back from the dead at the end to find shit you hadn't dug up yet.

It's like they took notes on how to do a better press conference from that PS4 thing a while back but stopped after "Show the system"

Always online and Used Games info

So, in case this wasn't brought up, this covers the "Always online" and "Used games" issues people have been curious about.

The TL;DR version which is still semi-long breaks down as such
1) The console is not "always" online
-Games may operate through a cloud and thus it is up to the developer whether it is always online or not
2) The console does block used games
-You have to install the games to your HDD much like the way you have to on PS3 now, but once you do this you can play without the disc
-If you try to install it on a different console you have to pay a fee, but if you do, you gain all functionality as the first person to install the game
-This most likely means the game is tied to an Xbox live account
-No word yet on just putting the game in and playing without a fee, though it seems unlikely this will exist

Has no backwards compatibility

Also, I didn't fucking watch, so this might be fucking old news to you people who did. This is more for those who didn't.

Also, apparently, Sony stock just jumped $1.72 during the course of the reveal.

Nope. Fuck that. As if they have any right to put on a fee on a console we have no idea on the chances of malfunctioning.

Apparently nobody from the press was actually applauding during any of that.

Rating the two I'd certainly give Xbox the edge. At the very least it was a whole lot more interesting to watch compared to the PS3 one.

Though the things mentioned about how it treats used games makes a chill go up my spine.

I'm leaning more towards getting a PS4 out of all 3 of them and upgrading my PC.

"So hey, that cool thing that kids used to do where they could bring over the $60 video game they bought to their friend's house and play it together on their friend's console? Yeah, fuck that. That's fucking stupid. Let's stop that."

You know how people call the original XBox "The XBox", and they call the XBox 360 "The 360"? Take a moment to realize that people will actually be calling this system "The One".

I'll probably get a top-loader PS3 to replace my old broken PS3. That is if this economy actually gets better.

Microsoft is ruined, PS4 is now the only thing worth buying between the two. Like others said, it's pretty much worth it to just upgrade your PC and buy a PS4 (and a Wii U eventually if it has a bunch of games you like). Making you pay a fee for used games is dumb, preventing you from sharing a game with friends or playing the game over at a friend's house is dumb, etc.
