    PS4 comes without any sort of... whatever their version of the Kinect (more like the Wii, I guess) doesn't it?
    Which is most likely one reason the price is lower.

    And yeah, I'll still be buying an Xbox. I prefer their controllers by far, I enjoy Halo, I'm always connected anyway, and Kinect is great.

    If for any reason, I purchase one of these next gen consoles, my money goes to Sony. Micro$oft's hubris is astounding...I'm not bending over for them, sorry.

    Can we rename this thread PS4.

    In all seriousness Microsoft conference was strong I thought but for me the price kills it and I have no interest in Kinect. I would usually dive in with both feet and buy a new console but I am going to stay strong on this one.

    My son is a Sony fanboy and will buy the PS4 on release date. Myself I have games still on PS3 which I wish to play and can't see a reason to upgrade any time soon.

    As for the XBOX One. I do love Halo but don't wish to jump ship because of a single title.

    My PS3 is unplugged in the spare room gathering dust, I am on my 3rd 360, I love HALO (stepping on to the first HALO from that crashed shuttle is one of my top gaming memories ever), I love the controller and basically when it comes down to it I am an XBox fanboy but what MS have done with the XB1 is the exact same reason I refuse to buy another Apple product.

    SONY is no angel by any means but in a straight up head to head based upon what I desire in a new console system and what I am prepared to put up with it is not even a contest the PS4 wins without even raising a sweat.

    I will be interested to see if MS blink first on this but at the moment they seem to have their fingers in their ears shouting tralalala.

    I was disappointed to hear Sony say you needed PS+ to go online as it will only be used occasionally. Now I'm wondering if I really want it just for the odd exclusive. Still sticking with the Xbox though... Their exclusives seem better for my tastes and I like the controller more.... And I hear it can spy on you and I think that's just ace haha

    I was disappointed to hear it too actually, but for a different reason. I currently subscribe to PS+ and find it phenomenal value. I'm worried that if so many new people subscribe to access multiplayer, Sony will dilute the instant game collection.

    Strange how the Xbox thread has turned into a 'PS4 is better' thread....

    Not sure why you are surprised by it the original post asked if people were getting it and a lot of people said after seeing the announcement and the policies they were waiting on more information at E3, E3 happened, people chose sides and said why *shrug*.

    I thought they said PS+ would get more content more indie games as they will obviously be getting more money in that area.

    I'm still torn and have not signed up to it. I assume it's per login not per account. I have myself and two kids on my account (sub accounts) each of us has a login. If we all wanted to use PS+ that would mean 3 subs would it not?

    I wish they would give us the ability to separate a sub account from the main. My son who is now 21 this year would love to have his account separate and retain all he has achieved over the years. This is still not obtainable.

    Sub accounts can't purchase PS+, I believe they are always classed as under 18 even if the user ages over that.

    As I understand it however if the master account does purchase it the subs will get access to the games. Basically what it means is the sub accounts can't use the PS+ themes, avatars or use full game trials and can't download any of the games, but if the master account downloads the games the sub accounts can play them. I think they also get cloud saves as well.

    I highly recommend it, just this year so far we've had:

    PS3
    Bioshock 2
    Guardians of Middle Earth
    Sleeping Dogs
    Quantum Conundrum
    F1 Race Stars
    Mass Effect 3
    Dead or Alive 5
    Joe Danger 2
    Okami HD
    Lord of the Rings: War in the North
    The Cave
    Hitman Absolution
    Catherine
    Malicious
    Kingdom's of Amalur: Reckoning
    ICO and Shadow of the Collossus HD
    Demon's Souls

    Vita
    Jet Set Radio
    Pinball Arcade
    WipEout 2048
    Lumines Electronic Symphony
    Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
    Puddle
    Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
    Thomas Was Alone
    Sine Mora
    Velocity Ultra HD
    Rayman Origins
    Coconut Dodge Revitalised

    In addition to the yearly ones which just switched over..
    Was: Little Big Planet 2, Motorstorm Apocalypse and Infamous 2
    Now: Little Big Planet Karting, Uncharted 3 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

    I've only bought 2 console games in the last 18 months because I've had so many from PS+ :p

    How much was PS+ for that 18 months?

    Tell them the price son which would indicate the savings.

    In Australia PS+ is $70 per 12 months (or $20 per 3 months), so ~18 months of it is worth about $100, or the price of one new game. In America it is $50 per 12 months (or $18 per 3 months), so 18 months worth is a little more than the price of a new game.

    I own several Xbox consoles, 2 original and 3 x 360's. ( 1 original still going strong, and only 1 of the 360's still going now too)

    I asked my son to count all of the xbox games that we have it's well over 100 titles.

    Very under whelmed and very disappointed :(


    I'll not be buying this one.

    We've never had a PlayStation, so it looks like we may very well go down that road this time instead.

    Bethesda is releasing the Elder Scrolls Online Beta on PS4 first because PlayStation gamers are the experts in Elder Scrolls game bugs - Classic Kaz

    The x box is being trashed by the media before it even comes out. But ps4 sounds better by far
