“I’ve already got something in my house that I can watch TV on, so I don’t need a redundant piece of technology that allows me to do that. It’s not a very compelling message to gamers, and I’m not sure if it’s the consumption pattern that a lot of new-generation folks have for media,” Butts told FoxNews.com.
I will be going with PS4. I am a little biased because I have had all 3 Sony consoles, but I never liked the Xbox controller. The offset joysticks seems very odd to me. Xbox did totally outdo the Playstation with Kinect vs Move, but that isnt important to me. I only started playing online since last fall so the "Always on" thing with Xbox definitely rubs me the wrong way. I could do without all of the Facecrap and other social media, my phone is plenty capable if I wanted to do that. And I'm 26, got an NES for Christmas when I was a little tyke and grew up gaming with my brothers and their friends.
I've heard you can't play the new xbox without the Kinect camera. I don't know about you but I don't want to have to be forced to play a console with a camera on. Can't be much keeping hackers or the govt hacking into your system to see what you're doing, even when you're not playing it.

Sometimes I question my sanity. Occasionally it replies.
I JUST bought a 360 for the kids this xmas. I should have waited. I wouldn't have bought the new 'one' but the 360 would have been cheaper. I had a nes and a ton of games, sold them and the games months before super nes came out. It paid for the new system plus my first personal tv. Everyone that waited was selling at 2-5 per game when I was getting 15-30 be selling early. I should have known better than buy before they announced
I'm 36 have had
then a long lapse before the 360.
PC and games throughout though. Now I hardly ever play anything I can't mess with in 5 minutes between appointments.
Having looked at the new 'one', it looks mainly aimed at being able to watch TV. I already have a TV. It streams, so does every TV I own (except 1), every electronic device and even my car. The only tv that doesn't has a roku that does it all. It plays Blu, I already have a blu player (and an HD-dvd for that matter), I don't buy blu discs, too expensive for not much better than regular even on a 70" screen, plus I can't back them up. I have little kids who's main hobby is to make my dvd's unplayable. It plays 3d, I HATE 3d. If I want a headache I'll drink heavier. It's not backwards compatible. I didn't know companies still did this. While having 1 device to do more than 1 thing is neat, I'm not so old that pushing 1 additional button on 1 additional remote is likely to kill me.
Odds were slim I would have bought a new system anyways, but with what I've read I see no reason to do so.
I just want a damn game system. Not 12 different devices in one box. If they built it to play games and play games only, the cost of the system would drop dramatically and have less issues. I wont be buying either system.
Wrong. Playstation was the first; PS1 to be exact. A CD came with many gaming magazines and it would have about five or six different trial games on it. I wore the RE2 demo out waiting for its release. In fact, I may even have one of those old trial CDs in one of my closets.
Cool but I was referring to the currently used technology of downloading trial games. Which was invented on xbox live and copied later by play station. Sorry guess my post was not clear enough. :-)

You guys are just puppies. I am 38. I started playing on the Atari 2600 and a Commodore 64. I was tortured as a kid when my parents got me the ET game for my birthday. Then it was the NES, then a Genesis, followed by a PS1, PS2, Xbox 360, then a PS3. Next, it will be a PS4.
