Yeah they always say that but they'll be 40-50, but then who buys them new. I just wait for used deals on forums / ebay.

When I bought the PS3 new on launch, two pads and two games it was £500. Was just bored and came back with it one day. Then they got rid of the reason I bought it for, otherOS support. :problem:

That aint great news I'll grant you! :roll: It will of course be interesting to see direct comparisons. If you look at the current available footage of BF4 on the XBO and PS4, the PS4 is 900p and XBO is 720p - the XBO looks sharper - work that one out! :lol:

The day of reckoning is near...... some ****ers are going to be ****. Just glad I decided to purchase COD and BF on the PC.

Bf4 on xbox one does not look better it looks poor crushing black detail and over sharpening the image (which results in no depth to the image), if you look at xbox vs pc you see its even much sharper than pc as well (looks like its using a wrong gamma range to me).

However the pc vs ps4 is almost identical with the only real difference coming from the slight reduction in resolution making textures cleaner on pc.

Makes me laugh how people think the xbox version looks good ,its like watching a movie with the dynamic setting on your tv.

Btw i dont actually think the xbox will look that bad on release i think it was a wrong setting or capture issue.
It's all in the reflexes!

The resolution is in the close up detail and the PS4 version is head over heels better that the Xbox One version.

Like Capipe says, you would have to be nuts to not notice the difference. PS4 hands down and will be even more noticable when it in home use on a decent set up.

Lame launch lineup + no audio streaming = preorder cancelled.

TotalBiscuit was just saying as much on his youtube channel, Sony are going to be struggling with releases for the first six months, Titanfall won't ever be coming out on ps3/4, which is another kick in the balls for sony >
"EA CFO Blake Jorgensen says Titanfall will be exclusive for the life of product for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC."
"Yeah lets all get ponys instead, wait no lol trendy cabs" Err I think you meant Ponies didn't you ?

The crushed blacks are apparently due to the RGB range, which has or will be fixed (again, apparently).

I personally think the XBO footage looks good.... the image has more "pop" than the PS4 footage and the PS4 footage certainly appears to be blurry in comparison.

This is all way too subjective in reality and in the same vein won't mean a great deal to the normal gamer - your average gamer won't give a ****. They both look close in their presentation imo.

Across the board the XBO has some catching up to do. Whether that will matter in the grand scheme of things (sales) remains to be seen.

Now it's getting (some would argue that started several months ago!) crazy.....

Allegedly:

The PS4 code was final
The XBO code was development and not finished

A XBO Day 1 update patch will be available which will include:

Added graphical effects as per PS4 & PC current footage.
1080p 60fps VSYNC. :awe:

I'll believe it when I see it (I can only take so much hearsay ****)..... only 22 days to find out!

I hope so I've just had my 50" panasonic plasma calibrated by a thx certified calibrator , unfortunately i was hoping all games would be native 1080p (maybe in a year or two :( ) .

I have to agree tho i think the line-ups for both consoles is poor and wouldn't bother myself, if i didn't play battlefield with a few friends id probably would of waited till destiny was released.

Just hope i can get on with the controller as the ds3 is pants for fps.
