    what a stupid article, PS4 is much popular and will release earlier. It’s a fact and by not agreeing with me you are not going to change it anyway …

    • disqus_tU9jub6eFu

      I agree. This could not be more one sided. I will not be using this article to decide anything. Did he even mention whether or not the PS4 has those features? I’m sure that it does. If the past is any indicator, PS4 will have even more features and cost less in the long run. PS4 always comes standard with stuff that you have to purchase separately for the xbox

        Not to mention that the discount to which he’s referring can also be applied to PS4 pre-orders and has naught to do with Microsoft having “slashed prices”.

        Which begs the question: was the author of this article simply too lazy to properly research things before he slapped it on this site, or is he trying to pull the wool over the eyes of his readers with outright lies?

  • 1moreastronaut

    Gold standards? This article is chock-full of grammatical, spelling and (most importantly) factual errors. What a joke.

    • disqus_tU9jub6eFu

      How messed up is it to have an error like that in your logo. (An organization that deals in the written word).

      I wonder if they actually know about the ‘Gold standard’? If they did, they would know why it is wrong to use it that way.

      • RedSkep

        “I wonder if they actually know about the ‘Gold standard’?” is a statement, not a question. It gets a period, not a question mark. The punctuation also goes on the inside of the quote mark, not the outside. Also, you should use a double quote mark, not the single. The single is for a quote within a quote. You’re not really qualified to be critical of someone else’s grammatical errors.

        • Tino Liciaga

          I didn’t know the single quote was for a quote inside of a quote. That is an awesome tidbit to know!

        • disqus_tU9jub6eFu

          yet, you didnt debate a single point i make. and i’m not the journalist. and fuck you type however the hell i want?!@., LOL

      This article reads as if it was created by a poorly programmed automatic word generator, or a foreign piece that was poorly google translated and reposted. The bio says that the author holds a graduate degree in journalism and is a senior reporter.

      I wonder if they’re hiring…

      I could use a new job.

    Wtf are they even saying……

  • some1exampe1

    this article makes me question the standards of Columbia university’s school of “journalism”.

    it’s sounds more like he works for microsoft’s minister of propaganda department.

  • justerthought

    Both consoles have had a reveal and E3 exposure, so why does this article state consumers know what to expect with XB1 ‘unlike PS4′. Total bias using misinformation. Everyone is clear what Sony are offering because everything they have claimed has remained consistant from day one.

    It is actually Microsoft who are giving unclear messages due to all the u-turns. Badly thought out strategies designed to make a fast buck off loyal consumers have resulted in Microsoft desperately reacting to events, constantly changing it’s message. But no mention of that from this article so it cannot be taken seriously.

  • Ian

    As a avid Xbox 360 fan, even a 10% price cut wont be enough to make me change my mind on the Xbox One. Microsoft has displayed time and time again over the last few months their sheer arrogance towards their consumers and towards the game industry, not to mention their true intentions towards the way we use their products. I mean sure, they’ve changed their minds on DRM and Used Games for now, but whats stopping them going back on that again once they’ve taken your hard earned money? Not a lot.

    The PlayStation 4 will be cheaper, more powerful & come with a much better online service then Xbox One will (personally I think Sony has done a very good job in creating PS+ with much better deals and services than the Xbox Live Gold service provides) I just think it’s a No-Brainer … the future of the next-gen belongs to Sony. It really is hard to fault them this time around and like I said, as an avid Xbox 360 fan, that pains me : /

    • cyberbid .

      I could not have said it better myself, you have it all in here. And like you im currently on the 360 about to make the switch this year. Good post

  • Solid Snake

    The person who wrote this article is a blind idiot. His trying so hard to convince himself the Xbox One is better than PS4. Open your eyes, PS4 beats Xbox on in all aspects.

  • IllusiveParadox

    Well this isn’t biased…

  • DesertDragon

    Well M$ has started with the price drop of desperation. Sony has been winning since E3 and M$ has been doing the Big Back-up. Biased is not the word for this article. Long live PlayStation.

  • ZeusiQ

    LOL! What a joke. This article is spoken by a true “Xbox Fanboy”. The Xbox is through, there is no more worries and headaches over it. They had a nice run and now it’s time to erase the memories… That’s why the Playstation 4 is shaped like an eraser.

  • Leo LeiGto

    lmao. FALSE. even if they release b4 PS4 they will be 2-4x behind.

    Best buy Xbox 1 preorders max = 20

    PS4 = 80 and RISIng. lol…

  • coheed

    now your being biased

  • DoUbLeZz (Lydon)

    Sad sad article mr. fanboy, please remove it! =P

  • ohhai

    This author is an idiot. Everyone know the UK price for the xbox was originally valued more than $500 USD.

  • Total Wafflez
