when it comes down to specs - its basically the same console. really its amazing how similar things will be this time around. fanboyism aside ps4 might have the resolution advantage and the first party games to have my vote.
I thought the xbox was DDR3 and not GDDR3? Also the PS4's CPU is custom too, it's not just the standard Jaguar so that needs to be edited.
This generation is actually choosing the lesser evil from the two giants (Sony and Microsoft):
Xbox One is out of the question for me with all the DRM stuff, and always on policy.
PS4 would be the ideal machine if it's multiplayer would remain free (or accessible from my country).
As it stands right now I will choose neither and just stick with my trusty old PS3!...
Sorry Microsoft, sorry Sony, if one of you will get my money, you'll have to wait for it!
I've been with Sony since PS1->PS2->PS3->...well even if I became a vegetable,my next of keen would know what to buy!
But as has been pointed out already,the PS4 hasnt yet provided me with a good enough reason to drop my PS3, There is more to games than 'Better' graphics. I have watched the trailors,I still havent seen much that couldnt be done on the PS3.
I got an Xbox 360, and never owned a PS3, but with that DRM crap XB1 is out of the race, I don't even need to check the specs. I vote PS4.
"Xbox One surprisingly will force users to connect to the internet at least once every 24 hours, while the PS4 does NOT require an internet connection at all."
that what set me off laughing. That mean any family that can't afford the internet gonna be piss about needing one.
it worth signing up for PSN+ as they give you one free game (retail for $59.99) a month, 60 min try on a full game, first access for demos prior to release date, and if they throw in online multiplayer, that MIGHT weed out some idiots who can't learn to use the mic for team play and not for profanity or music in the background.
Don't say things you don't know, please.

Afterwards, it continued to be developed until its official release in June 2006
Also, all rights to the format belong to Sony, and I doubt that they would allow Microsoft to use their prototype for their console at the time.
the xbox360 used game transfer rule is pretty much "no givebacks." it's intended to stop you from passing the same game back and forth.
Say you buy a game, beat it, then give it to your friend. You can transfer the license to your friend, but your friend can't transfer it back to you ever for that copy. It can be sold still, but MS only provides the platform, and the developer has to implement the rest.
Here's how it realyl works as near as I can tell.
Each disc and digital copy has a unique serial number. When you buy a disk the serial is linked to your xbox live account.
Your live account is also linked to your xbox one, and no others. unless you have to replace it. Each account has a SINGLE primary xbox one it's linked to. It's probably possible for the same xbox to be linked to more than one.
Anyone can play your games on your xbox one, signed in or not.
You can play your games when signed into any xbox one. The fact that you own the serial is stamped in the cloud. you can either take the disk over once,or let it download from the cloud.
You can designate ten people as "family". ONE family member at a time can play a game from your collection on any xbox one they are signed into.
Each serial number can be played on one xbox one at a time i believe. this is the reason for the forced internet.
It's better to use "family" sharing than to give a game away. With family sharing you can pass the game back and forth. If you give a game away, then assuming the publisher allows it, that serial gets a "game has been given" flag on it, and it cannot be given again, to keep the game from getting passed back and forth.
PS4 instead places no restrictions on disc games. they can install to the hard drive of course, but they will always require the disc to play. But because of this, you can just hand the disc to a friend and the game will work. It's possible for publishers to make their own DRM, but there's no infrastructure on sony's end to support it.
You don't get the convenience of not needing to hand the disc over that you get with the xbox one, but it's a good trade.
Because the xbox one system allows play without the physical media, the online checkins are required. there's simply no way to handle it otherwise.
Digital games can't be given away most likely. and they probably can't be resold. But you can still family share them, and you can still play them on any xbox, and anyone can still play them on your xbox. and EVERY game will exist in digital form. he objective here is to make digital version more attractive. and this is a big win for the publishers, because if their projections on discs are off, people can till buy digital copies, and the publisher makes money hand over fist on them.
You must be smoking crack. 360 had this gen over ps3 big time. Last gen ps2 had more sales but ps2 with mods < xbox with mods. Ps4 is looking way better in terms of public appeal but I still want one because I'm a halo fan boy. Love the multiplayer.

Don't get me wrong, I love playstation products, but we should have seen this coming. Microsoft is going to make you buy the proprietary peripherals like some sort of bluetooth plugin and some sort of 'eye' equivalent, thats just off the top of my head.
The ps4 is looking mighty fine, like a very inexpensive top end gaming computer, and now that all these awesome components are in there I think we are going to see a lot of Linux boxes, windows and OSX ports (hopefully).
Can't possibly afford one, but with all the games coming out that are not console exclusive, I am gunna wait till the price goes down dramatically or hopefully get one for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance day (can't wait til christmas).
