It's only cheaper because of the Kinect. You don't get the move with the PS4. For similar functionality with Sony gaming, you'll be right at the $500 mark.

I still think it's a little high. But the features of the XBone offer substantially more value than the PS4 all by itself. The phone, surface and PC integration makes it a no-brainer for me.

Yep. I can't wait to get my hands on the Surface 2.

But it could be a little awkward when I say "Xbox, internet explorer. Xbox, youporn.com" :dang:
 
Xbox One is unreal. Have gotten to the point that I only need to use the controller for gaming. It's a breeze navigating the menu and all of the apps with your voice.

I don't want any of that crap.
 
There's no backwards compatibility between PS3 and PS4 or Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Sony will be releasing a cloud service that will allow you to purchase and play PS1, PS2,and PS3 games through PSN in the summer. Microsoft has pretty much scoffed at any kind of backwards compatibility.

I'm going PS4 just because that's what most of the people I know are getting. I don't really have an allegiance either way. That said, there really aren't any Microsoft exclusives I really care about not being able to play.

The XBone now uses a Windows kernel so a cloud/virtual server emulator for 360 compatibility will certainly be released. Whether or not it's by Microsoft probably doesn't matter.

Final Fantasy 7 on the PS4? Hmm.
 
Someone could very well make an emulator, but you'd probably never be able to use Live again. I haven't read or heard anything about Microsoft allowing unlicensed programs on the Xbox One. I suppose they could contract that sort of thing out, but they really haven't shown anything but hostility toward backwards compatibility.

You may be right and they will most likely protect the 360 OS code to the highest degree possible. However, they have a massive cloud infrastructure in Azure and if they see a revenue opportunity I can't figure why they wouldn't. If they don't, once 360 hardware is discontinued and the demand ramps to keep playing older games, if they don't do it you can bet somebody else will. Licensed or no.
 
Not that it matters, but you really don't care whether or not you get "nickel-and-dimed in the modern entertainment world", do you ?
 
As a purely objective and unbiased party (prefer PC gaming) I will say that I have never been an XBox fan. I can't speak on this generation yet because I haven't played either.

I would likely go PS4 if I did get a console. The price tag is more appealing.
