This is exactly what happened to me with mlb the show 14 and I got mad and I sold my original ps4. Sony’s customer service sucks and they flat out lie to you and nothing is ever done about it. Looks like they haven’t stop lying and robbing people. Problem is we have to live with it if we want the best for gaming and that makes me sick. I wish microsoft’s xbox one was better in graphics or at least on par with ps4, at least for my sports. Sadly though they aren’t and I’m stuck with ps4. I learned my lesson and now I buy hard copies of games for ps4. The guy above will most likely follow suite or leave ps4 like I did. When I left I had my xbox one performing better in sport games but now they aren’t anymore and I’m stuck with ps4 if I want the best. It’s bad but good to see I’m not the only one that got lied to by a Sony representative. But as long as they are #1 they will continue to be our only real gaming choice if we want the best.
If I could cry about this I would. This day is very hard for me. A xbox one players who is about to sell off his console is who you are reading about. It’s just no getting around the needless purpose of it. This pulling of a console isn’t because they robbed me or lied to me like I did with the ps4. Even when I got rid of the ps4 I knew it was the best console for gaming. But I didn’t have to worry about that because I had my best looking sport titles on my xbox one and that was more important than all the other games ps4 show better with. So I felt comfortable letting it go even though I knew it was the number one system. I was fine with xbox sales numbers as they had nothing to do with me. I was fine with 900p on the first party titles. But when it continued to drop 720p and then it lost its sports graphics edge to ps4 everything changed and this is what makes this a issue that will be a final call unlike the ps4. There is nothing you can give me to make up for all these deficiencies. Especially being that I dont care about Halo. It’s just too many this time. I’m so sorry fellow xbox one fans I just don’t have a one single reason of use for the xbox one now. I hate how things have ended up and I really hate that I’m adding to the problem of competition. I’m just loosing too much staying with xbox one and don’t have the time and money to continue to buy for two systems anymore.
I’ve lost my best looking sport titles
We continue to loose in sales in software
Developers continue to put us second place
More than 70% of all third party games look better on ps4.
Almost 50% of all third and first party game come in lacking 1080p, even worse, games coming in at 720p more and more now.
Ps4 the only place to play baseball
Ps4 only place for VR
Ps4 only place I play chess
Microsoft killed off purpose of kinect
Worse download speeds for disk and digital
Ps4 only place that has play share feature
All my friends have ps4’s
Ps4 is now the best format for the best looking first party games by 2015(Grand Turismo, bloodborne, 1886, uncharted, eve valkyrie, etc )
Xbox one already limited where ps4 graphics continue to get better.
It’s just too much guys, I’m sorry.
I will be the first to say it. I didn’t think Sony wa going to be able to pull this off. I heard them and I saw the introduction of the feature at the ps4 come out party but I always felt that it was one of the too good to be true things that really never made it on my top hopes for ps4. But if this works next week it could be THE KILLER feature that hurts Microsoft more than anything else Sony has added to the ps4. In fact I will just state that this single feature is bigger than anything the xbox one has said they can do or will do.
The weight of all that is present in your face from backward compatible games streaming to play share features, share button, and soon Project Morpheus, all build a system that truly will be unstoppable. I give Sony mad props for pulling off all they said they would do for the ps4. The only thing left is the play and resume feature from the promised features. They truly have a system that has no equal and if not before, it is very clear now that Sony is push new boundaries and hitting levels never seen before and is this Generation choosen One. I just don’t see any mercy being shown by Sony as they continue to prove to the world who is number one and why.
PS4 = “Most powerful game console in the world”, ” The gamers machine” , and
“The developers gaming console choice”.
Xbox one = “The most complete entertainment console ever”, “The best place to place the top titles”, and “Made for gamers by gamers”.
All these above statements are legit labels for both consoles. I don’t feel either console have over stepped their place with these quotes. They both have shown justification for these labels at one time or another. But I’m sure the fanboys out there will hate on something about these labels.
“The Xbox One launched in 28 new markets worldwide, contributing to the company’s reported total quarterly revenue of $23.20 billion USD”
How in the world do you make 23 billion in a quarter? This is crazy money guys. It is the strongest point nobody can deny. Microsoft and xbox has the money to do amazing things that no other console is set to do. They aren’t going anywhere folks and even if you don’t want to accept this, the truth is the xbox one and microsoft have a more stable foundation than Sony period. Everyone like pointing out Sony’s ps4 11-12 million sold but keep forgetting the simple fact that Sony has been leaking billions for years and can’t stop it. They haven’t made a positive earning in years. Sony is not ps4 alone and the ps4 can’t save them from the losses they have each year. The hard truth is faced when you look honestly at things and that is that Sony is truly hurting in money as a company and could easily get worse as the years turn. As good as the ps4 is the sad truth is that the ps4 could end up falling down a sinking ship reguardless of its success. Microsoft on the other hand can afford to do whatever they want reguardless of the sales figures of their console and can survive with billions in excess(not forgetting that they are actually selling very well on top of that). However my sport titles mean more than any console for me so I will always pick the best format for that but make no mistake about it, I still believe in Microsoft as a gaming and computer company to do wonders. The rest of you guys better watch out and be careful not to hate to hard on Microsoft, there are a lot of dangers and shocking actions that could happen when a company has billions to do what they want and they get a chip on their shoulders. I’m just saying make sure you don’t confuse ps4 with Sony as the company’s success nor xbox one sales as the sum total of success for Microsoft. You better understand quickly that the companies total money profit says they are a success not the consoles wars. Also, what happens to that company’s total profit decides what happens to that console survival not the other way around. Food of thought people, the game world better wake up and see the truth, Microsoft is the a more successful company than Sony and makes way more money than they do even with the console race being in Sony favor.
Holmquist confirmed that it wouldn’t be a port of either the PS4 or Xbox One version. “Indeed the PC version is not a port so it gets just as much love as the consoles, and we will create a great experience on all platforms.”
In a recent interview questionnaire the developers of The Divison hint that cloud power use to increase the performance of the games may just be something they are looking into because each game is being developed independent of each other and aren’t ports. This could be huge news for all consoles especially the Xbox one. If you are like me I haven’t heard cloud powered gaming from the xbox camp for months. Frankly I thought since the DRM policy was reversed I didn’t see it possible to do anymore because a game creator would have to create different graphics for the same console and without knowing which it would almost be impossible to produce that game if they truly used the cloud to increase the graphics. Even now I have serious doubts this is what exactly he meant or of what he said truly could be what he meant when asked about cloud tech to increase graphics for the xbox one.
“This topic is on our agenda, but nothing is at a stage that we can talk about right now.”
But hey if this is something that could be done somehow this could be the saving grace for the Xbox One future. I personally, even though I like Xbox, doubt this has much legs. I have given up on a miracle cure for the disparity between the development of the xbox one vs ps4.
I have accepted that as time goes by more and more advantages will show for the ps4 over the xbox one because of numbers, ease of development, and ultimately more power or life behind the ps4’s architect. But for microsoft and Xbox One as a whole I am excited if somehow this turns out to be true. It means one important thing , competition.
Either way, it’s time for the bickering to end. Xbox One may not be anywhere near PS4’s level of success today, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t doing well in its own right, and that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a clear path towards even greater success in the future.
Let all the people in the church say AMEN!!!!! Thank the Lord of Heaven somebody went on record and told the honest unbiased truth from a gaming site. I have been screaming this fact for months. Nobody would listen it seems. Fanboys hate grew and more and more sites got in line. To my surprise IGN just posted one of the most justified articles about the consoles and xbox one’s position in the future of gaming that I have ever read. If you haven’t read it you should. In fact it should be mandated for every game site and gamer to read this article. It wasn’t about bashing sony or Microsoft but a article about the real truth and not what the fanboys want you to believe on either side. In a nutshell, Microsoft’s xbox one is successful people and isn’t going anywhere. They are hinting on points and pushing things the way they can and have proven to be on track for outselling the 360. This is no small feet and if done would prove this system to be a success reguardless of the sales of the ps4. Xbox one isn’t a joke of a system. Yes it’s harder to program for and is ultimately the weaker of the two New generation systems. But it’s still has serious legs behind it and has the money to back it for years to come. Microsoft doesn’t have to beat playstation to be successful!
Sadly though this doesn’t mean much to me personally when my sport titles look better on the ps4. Sports is the most important factor above all else for gaming for me.
