Kangaroo_Ralph: I've got no consoles in my house except a Wii the kids don't play much anymore.  I currently have no internet, even though I'll probably eventually get satellite. Yes, I live in the sticks and like it that way.

So I'm wondering what system I should consider.

No Internet, huh?

An Atari 7800. Since you're living in the 80's and all.

yukichigai: Please stop feeding the shiatrolls.

Okay, I combined the worlds "shill" and "troll" on that one, and somehow the filter turned it into that.  Dafuq?

...actually I think I like that better.

I may be watching Game of Thrones too much, but I have a feeling that Sony is building we gamers up for this AWESOME ending, and they're gonna pull a GRRM on us.

Come release time: Full DRM, always on connectivity, higher price, lack of new titles FARK YOU GEORGE RR MARTIN YOU FATASS!!!! WHY HAVE YOU SPOILED HAPPY ENDINGS FOR ME???????

Le Grand Inquisitor: Doesn't change the fact that I will get the new XBOX. I am an upper middle class individual, with constant internet. It doesn't bother me. Plus, Microsoft's all-in-one connectivity with tv, and media is completely unparalleled. The masses that enjoy their consoles more than just gaming will favor the XBOX. PS4 may be the "better" game system (quotes used because they both pretty much will have the exact same output level in terms of power and graphics), but if you want versatility, the XBOX One is the way to go. E3 was only an echo chamber for Sony fans to keep telling themselves how great they think they are. And the media always loves a good controversy to pick up, in a bout a year, nothing drastic will happen on the console front and this whole outrage will be a thing of the past.

Ballmer-like typing detected.

Am I the only one who realizes what Microsoft is trying to do? The Xbox One is the only console capable of true "next gen" games. By forcing internet access and Kinect, games can be made with a whole new set of rules if companies can learn to take advantage of it. Sony cannot have any games that take advantage of the cloud computing possibilities, and with PS4-eye not being packed in; expect NO games that take use it in a cool way.

If I am buying a console to last me 8-10 years, I would rather have the one that has games and the new features. PS4 offers better graphics and larger games, but NOTHING NEW. Just off of the presentation Forza is incapable of being ported to PS4, as is Spark. Meanwhile Sony shows a total of ONE new ps4 exclusive game in 2 hours.
I understand that the Xbox One is only useful for a percentage of people at this time, but think about 6 years from now. The PS4 is locked into what it can do, while the Xbox can continue to outsource to the cloud for more power. Plus with Voice commands and Kinect built into every system, we gamers will see lots of interesting ideas that Sony cannot copy.

Xbox is the future for those that can deal with Microsofts BS. PS4 is the current generation warmed over again

/ own PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii
// will but a new system, but not this year.
/// want a Xbox for Crimson Dragon, and Titan Fall, and FFXV, and KH3

This is what happens when you let the people in charge of follow on sales dictate design and function.  I bet the only reason they don't deactivate the console if a new game isn't purchased every ten days is that legal is still looking into it.

exick: There are a few things that Microsoft could easily correct that would actually make this a contest, but they're too stubborn and ignorant to do them apparently.

See: Windows 8 Metro interface.
