    Now that all the major players have had their E3 press conferences, it's time for round two.

    Which next generation console are you most interested in buying?

    Did anything you saw at E3 change your mind? Or did it only solidify your previous stance?

    Still Xbox. 100 bucks more but it can do so much more. None of used games or online bugs me. Ryse and Titanfall will be must buys. The only exvlusives from Sony I want is Infamous and Kingdom Hearts but they announced today KH also coming to xb1. The exclusives and system just all around better thus the purchase.

    Still voted Leaning PlayStation (4), because I'm not buying one at launch.

    Multiplat big-budget games will look better
    Mostly better business practices than nearest competitor
    $399 launch SKU
    More Sony exclusive games to be announced over the course of the generation
    Self-published indie games

    Like what? Its not doing anything the PS4 cant do, well outside of blocking you from borrowing and lending games, playing SP games without an online connection, trading and playing used games etc.

    None of that bothers me. I don't share games with people anyways. Everything with it being the only box in your living room really intrigues me, I could see myself using all that big time. Plus smartglass is phenomenal. It justifies the purchase more than spending 400 bucks for just gaming

    Ps4. Not gonna deal with any of those restrictions that xb1 has, and sony's eexclusives have always been higher in both quantity and quality in my eyes. I also suspect titanfall and ryse to eventually be ported to ps4 down the line. The fact that the ps4 is 100 bucks cheaper is also a huge pplus, and having used playstation plus for a while now, it's such an awesome service. Ps4 all the way.

    Well, you will also need an HD cable box. So, at least two boxes in your living room.

    So apparently the whole DRM thing isn't completely over. Jack Tretton said on Game Trailers that while Sony isn't imposing anything like Microsoft they can't say what the developers will choose to do when it comes to DRM.

    The story continues...

    Not really. That is the same stance Sony and MS took with the current generation.

    Microsoft is implementing the 24 hour verification, the sharing limitations, and the retailer account refresh to enforce DRM restrictions. Sony isn't doing anything that they weren't doing on the PS3.

    you can buy a PC for as little as 300 bucks. It may not have the best specs but its definetly available out there

    The PS4 works with tablets/phones as well

    Plus no backwards compatibility. So if you want to play your old 360 games, you will need to keep that console in the living room. So we are up to 3 boxes. And you can't just exchange the hard drive. So once it's full, and you don't want to uninstall stuff, you will require external hard drives. So basically...

    They dont really bother me either, i mean my net rarely goes down, i rather be connected to the net when i do play games(even if its just sp), i RARELY trade in games or buy used, but its the principle of it all. When i purchase an XB1 game, MS is basically telling me, "hey, you dont actually own that game, you aren't free to do with it what you want, you have to go through us before you trade it in or loan it out". Thats just outrageous to me.

    Yeah it's the same disk policies as PS3. Publishers could have always blocked pre-owned games on the PS3 but they were on their own in order to do so without help from Sony. The disk policies of Xbox changed and got baked into the OS of the One with Microsoft's doing.

    Yeah I'm not denying any of that I'm just saying if the developers/publishers choose to impose more stringent DRM policies then Sony can't really do anything. At least that's what I got from that and seeing as developers are the ones that are hurt the most by the sales of used game then I wouldn't be surprised if some developers do choose to go down that path.

    Then again I'm sure they've seen the backlash Microsoft has gotten and maybe most if not all will just avoid that road all together.

    At that point, it will be up to the consumer. We wield so much freaking power. We don't want it? Well, you won't get our money.

    If only gamers would have some patients, and actually work and stick together, to change things like this for the better.

    Definitely PS4.

    Its a better gaming machine at 100 cheaper. It doesn't block used games and doesn't require an internet connection, and doesn't have a gross Kinect/Eye device required for use.

    As somebody who has no interest in TV the Xbox One has continually fell flat on its face in my eyes. I can live without Halo and Gears.

    LOL, id like to see your patience when Battlefront releases with DRM up the ass. Im sure you'll bend over like the rest. We gamers have little to no will power man.

    I don't have any 360 games worth keeping around and if I fill up 500 gigs, that'll be very impressive. Buying the games is no different than buying a pc game so I don't see the big deal. I have yet to hear a reasonable argument against it.

    The NSA & any other intelligence agencies through MS is at least. Think of Microsoft as more of a lackey/goon in the midst of all this.

    My brother serves on a navy ship. This essentially means that the Xbox One would be completely useless to him and his fellow servicemen for long stretches while they are underway, which is exactly the kind of situation you want a game console functioning.
