im 19 but my dad had me start with all the original systems so i would know what it was like to experience technology change, and so that he wouldn't have to buy new systems early on. i cant get over the x box controller so i'll be continuing with PS.

Haha, I don't work for MS. I'm not even decided on which console I'll get, if I even feel like buying one. I'll have to wait until E3 to see what both bring to the table. I've got a fully decked-out gaming PC and there really aren't enough must-have exclusives on either side for me to open my wallet up right away. The only reason I got a 360 (over a year after it launched) is because all of my friends already had one and no one had the PS3 because it came out so late and was still $500-$600. The only Sony IP's that semi-interest me are Uncharted and Heavy Rain; the only MS ones are Forza, Gears of War and some of their arcade stuff. Never played Halo 1 or 2 but had some good fun messing around online with 3.
I'm kind of stuck if I want to play Red Dead, Madden or some other titles though because the devs don't want to bother making PC versions. Now with both companies going to x86 architecture though, a lot of the code structures can be easily ported for little cost and effort, so I might not have to buy either one.
I do hate the PS controller though, I've hated it since the PS1 and PS2. Why they can't make the thing a little bigger and more ergonomic is beyond me (did their test group have tiny 12 year old hands?) The first Xbox controller blew also, but I think the 360's is near perfect. Plus it's designed to work with every PC game these days; it's nice to be able to use it across two platforms with no differences.
Having friends on either console is the best reason to get either one.
The ps4 controller looks a little bulkier, I do like the new Xbox controller. Can't wait to get my hands on both of them.
Heavy Rain was a decent game. I liked the
scene when you have to draw up architecture plans on a flat board. I just wish there was more than one scenario like this.
Im sure Germany is saying its a security threat because CLIA can easily access any device connected to the Internet and could pose a risk having these consoles in the homes of officials, unlikely that officials will be using it, but if they have children. It's possible.
We shouldn't have to worry about privacy in our own homes. I'm not a nazi, but I DO believe in privacy in our own homes. I could care less about Germany, but saying their accusations are false is a stretch. Who wouldn't want 24/7 surveillance of their enemies? Know their routines, what they eat, what makes them laugh/cry? When they go to bed, when they go to work, need I continue...
What I hope is that MS is pressured into changing their concept and make an update that does not require Internet or camera. Let's keep
our fingers crossed. For what we know about PS4 they could be doing the same thing and were smart enough to let MS release it first and let them take the heat. We know nothing about PS4 besides the specs, controllers and a few games.

This forum is a double edge blade, it's saved me thousands in repairs and cost me thousands in mods
Policies are still being reviewed (and possibly adjusted) so I guess it doesn't really surprise me that Microsoft's reveal was very ambiguous. They could have just dropped some spit-balled ideas to test the reactions and adjust them accordingly before going into production. Kinect 2.0 could be a spy machine, but it also might not be. We won't really know until E3 or sometime afterward. I'd be extremely surprised if it were, though. Redbox, GameFly and other rental services have been pretty quiet, so I don't think the whole not-playing-used-games thing holds much water. They'd be lighting up the internet if it did. I really couldn't give two ****s about GameStop taking a hit though; buying your used game for $9 and re-selling it for $30. They're the ones killing the software industry and making a massive profit in the process by not really doing a damn thing; it's a seedy pawn shop for games. My stuff always looks brand new compared to the scratched-up discs, mystery-fluid-drenched instruction manuals, cigarette smoke-reeking cases that they sell back to the public.
If Rockstar and Sony still have an exclusive deal to release Agent, I may have to get a PS3/4/whatever it comes out on.
