So Awesome It Makes You Wanna Cry

PS4 & Xbox One Conference Thoughts

So we’ve all or most of us have seen the two conferences presented by Sony and Microsoft. While Sony didn’t actually show us a system they highlighted the features of what the system can do. Microsoft on the other hand actually had a product to show, and showed off features as well.

Lets start with Sony. To sum up Sony’s conference, it pretty much went like this:

PROS –

  • The Cloud feature to stream games across (PS3 games, PS2 games, etc…)
  • The controller has a touch pad now
  • Indie games developers like the system a lot
  • It actually plays games lol
  • The Playstation Vita can be used hand in hand with the PS4 (For those who have one. NOT mandatory)

CONS –

  • There was no system to look at
  • No price was mentioned
  • Isn’t backwards compatible

Now for Microsoft and the Xbox One:

PROS –

  • Voice command option
  • Comes with Kinect
  • Has a plethora of television related options

CONS –

  • Not really that many game related features
  • Isn’t backwards compatible
  • Has to be always connected to the internet
  • Mostly caters to the TV and not games or gamers

That was pretty much it for both conferences. The one thing that was disappointing about both was that no price was mentioned. I know that E3 is only a little while away, but they could’ve given us a hint a a price range at least.

Also, I’m gonna come right out and say it………..

What the heck were you thinking Microsoft!? That presentation was less about a new game system and more about the new high tech cable box you invented. I REALLY hope you have more to show off at E3 this year because at this point, while I was getting one anyway, it looks like I’ll ONLY be getting a PS4.

And with that, this concludes AzureNova’s thoughts on the next gen conferences. Now to wait for E3 =)
