I have no idea what's going on...I heard about these but I've been gone for a while with no TV and internet. Can someone explain this "Console War" stuff going on? please..don't kill me
User avatar #342 to #87 - godzillaeatslazers (06/17/2013) [-]
Ok so there are 3 consoles Xbox, PS3, And Wii. Pretty much everyone's fighting about witch one is the best in this Situation Its Xbox One (witch is the new xbox comming out) , PS4 , and The Wii U. I have no clue why PC is in there because its not apart of the war but it is the superior thing to use to game. Microsoft Pretty Much ****** up the Xbox one and everything about it is **** . Right now on my Chat Its PS4, Wii U, Xbox one

There are 2 sides. Both essentially the same yet one has taken all the heat. One has had a debut, and now funnyjunkers decide that they, again, want to jump onto the bandwagon, like always, and feel like a part of something.

At least, that's what I'm getting out of it. I'd rather stick with the PC, personally.

Please, don't let yourself get dragged into it. These people are taking up front-page space that could be used for good content.

Long story short, the new xbox presentation focused on non gaming stuff and was considered horrible by almost everyone.
User avatar #97 to #91 - doctormisha (05/29/2013) [-]
How if I can ask? Non-gaming...da fuq
User avatar #102 to #97 - rabaneristo (05/29/2013) [-]
Like Tv on your xbox, internet on your xbox, car wash in your xbox, a dildo factory on your xbox... anything, except games.

the console war, my friend... is eternal. It is not just in the present. It is not just in the past. but it will always be in the future.
User avatar #92 to #89 - doctormisha (05/29/2013) [-]
I understand. Can you tell me what's going on with the gif like...What's wrong with wrong with the Xbox One? D-Don't kill me I'm completely clueless about this
#117 to #92 - dragonsgirl (05/29/2013) [-]
1. You have to pay a small fee to play on pre-owned games, Microsoft have also slanted the prices so that the fee is almost the same price as when you first bought it, no matter how scratched to **** the disc is.
2. The eye camera piece is ALWAYS on, listening and watching, waiting for you to turn on the Xbox with the voice command for Kinect, meaning that you will no longer have any privacy.
3. Kinect is no longer optional, you HAVE to buy it with the console.
4. You Have to always have an internet connection and have a mandatory sign in every 24 hours, even just to play single player games, otherwise your Kinect will sign you out.
5. At the reveal they showed NOTHING NEW ABOUT GAMES, they only spoke about Fifa and Call of Duty, games which have been so overused they are now as desirable as Snookie's vagina, even the graphics have barely changed.
6. They only spoke about how you could watch T.v and movies on the Xbox, and a new Halo T.v. Series, which we all know will be posted on Youtube sooner or later for us to watch.
7. If you don't live in America you cannot use 80% of the software you paid for, which includes the T.V side of Kinect.
8. They are also now talking about how many people are allowed to watch the movie on the Xbox one in the room. So if the limit of people that can watch the film is three, and a fourth person walks in the room, WHO ISN'T EVEN GOING TO WATCH IT, the Kinect will detect the fourth person, stop the film and demand you pay AN EXTRA FEE for that person to watch it as well, even though you had to buy the god dammed movie.
9. No backwards compatibility for X-box 360 games.
10. It's as if Microsoft want to go bankrupt.

(Here's a cute picture to make up for the rant) ^.^

OMG ******* thing you for saying all of that man i have this to show to my douche bag friends that think Xbox is ******* everything
User avatar #309 to #117 - spartusee (05/30/2013) [-]
I'm fine with no backwards compatibility, get the **** over it. But god damn I thought that "pay more if some one walks in the room" bull **** was just speculation. Please site a source. You don't have to but it would be cool. Nice comment,
User avatar #137 to #117 - thatguywhohasbacon ONLINE (05/30/2013) [-]
You can turn off the Kinect (Pro-tip, put a piece of tape over the lens if it bothers you that much).
Number 8 is false.
And finally the WII-U is the only new gen console with backwards compatibility, so pointing that out is nitpicking at this point.

The rest I agree, they're stupid decision that I hope Microsoft will fix soon, but they probably wont.
#140 to #137 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
Ps4 are soon to have backwards compatibility, for ps3 ps2 and ps1 games, and i said they were talking about it, not that they have actually done it yet.

If you put tape over the eye piece it would no recognize where you are and switch off the console
User avatar #181 to #140 - goodguygary (05/30/2013) [-]
i haven't seen anything about ps4 being backwards compatible, links?
#187 to #181 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
I watched the reveal, they said that's what they were hoping to do, bacwards compatible, you can watch the reveal for ps4 but it's about 2 hours long :/ even i just skimmed through it to look at the game graphics
#196 to #194 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
ahh okay then, i just heard backwards compatibility in the reveal, sorry
#197 to #196 - goodguygary (05/30/2013) [-]
always check, double check, and triple check your facts to make sure, man i was excited thinking they would be bringing backwards compatibility back.

User avatar #312 to #197 - spartusee (05/30/2013) [-]
Why? They would have to build an xbox 360 into the damn thing to do that. Who really gives a **** ?
User avatar #313 to #312 - goodguygary (05/30/2013) [-]
a xbox 360 into a ps4?
User avatar #314 to #313 - spartusee (05/30/2013) [-]
I skipped ahead didn't I? Well same thing. To keep costs down and graphics up they opted not to put the ps3 into the ps4,
User avatar #315 to #314 - goodguygary (05/30/2013) [-]
hold on though, just imagine the money sony would get by putting the software inside the ps4 that allowed xbox 360 games to be played (and let's imagine any laws pertaining to this sort of thing don't exist) do you know how much money they would earn?
User avatar #316 to #315 - spartusee (05/30/2013) [-]
Not much more, they would have to build the ps3 inside the ps4. SO it would be slightly limiting the ps4. And I imagine people who buy the ps4 are buying it for a ps4, not a ps3. And what games are you just itching to play again down the road?
User avatar #317 to #316 - goodguygary (05/30/2013) [-]
my ps2 is broke, so i was hoping for ps2 compatibility for Champions of norrath, and a few ratchet and clank + jak and daxter, plus ps1 for spyro and Alundra, it was more for the ps2, ps1 games than ps3.
User avatar #333 to #317 - spartusee (05/30/2013) [-]
Oh I see. Well I must admit I was disappointed when I couldn't play my ************* gameboy games on my dsi xl. But could play them on a ds light. ******** . THe only thing the dsi brought to the table was a camera which no one used and some cheap tricks.
#200 to #197 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
I'm sorry!
I'm sorry!

it's fine, i just need time to recover from my broken spirit.
User avatar #153 to #140 - thatguywhohasbacon ONLINE (05/30/2013) [-]
No, it doesn't switch off the console, you can turn off the Kinect, bury it in a closet, whatever, it just has to be connected. And see my reply to your other post for my comment on backwards compatibility.
#144 to #140 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
^ talking about the Fees on the amount of people watching not the backwards compatibility for PS4
#124 to #117 - doctormisha (05/29/2013) [-]
I have nothing to say for I can't find any words for this rage. What about the Ps4? I hope that's good
#177 to #124 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
and.... just watch this... www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUE-cTsaK6g
#134 to #124 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
For the PS4-
1. New graphics, uses 30,000 polygons to make more human like features.
2. Share button so you can upload screenshots and videos of your gameplay directly online without having to edit it, and also people can view you playing live if you choose to broadcast your gameplay. Meaning you can watch game content you are thinking about purchasing for free.
3. Pause the game, press the power button, it enters a low power state saving your gameplay, press the power button again, you are where you paused the game last.
4. The Ps4 Store memories thing you search, the genres and types of games you like ,REMEMBERS THEM and DOWNLOADS ANY FREE CONTENT for any of the games you like or have bought before you've even clicked the download button!
5.The Ps4 now also downloads content in the background, and GET THIS you can play the game the SECOND YOU HIT THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON.
6. Also if you're stuck or in trouble on a game, you can ask a friend who is still in their house while you're in yours to help you. You press a button which allows them to take control of your controller and they will help you out, you can stop them as well.
7. The Ps4 is soon to be backwards compatible, not just for Ps3, but for Ps2 AND Ps1 games.
8. They also have T.v and internet available on their Console, and have also joined together with Facebook and Netflix. Sony are even talking about starting their own movie and music channel.
9. The PS vita as well (yeah yeah i know sounds crappy) BUT, say you have your Ps4 in the living room, and you parents or kids take over and you have to change the channel. The PS vita will transfer the information from your Ps4 to you PS vita device and you can CONTINUE PLAYING YOUR GAME.
10. They actually asked the game developers what they thought about their ideas. They care.
User avatar #156 to #134 - dekyrptonian (05/30/2013) [-]
you know, its kind of hypocritical to point out ever flaw about the xbox one, yet not point out any in the ps4
#166 to #156 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
ahhh okay fair enough, well there is that issue that the Ps4 may download content you don't want,

and you'll probably have to buy new hardware or an add on piece for backwards compatibility,

there's certainly the issues with the change over part of the console, as bad gamers could get good gamers to play for them.
The ps vita is an extra piece of optional software you have to buy to be able to sync your playstation to your other devices

There's always the hacked side of the PS4 as people could probably learn how to hack your controller.

There's 8 GB of memory on the ps4 probably due to the pre dowloaded stuff the PS4 thinks you'll like.

User avatar #175 to #166 - dekyrptonian (05/30/2013) [-]
well, thank you, to your case, i admit that they didnt show any gaming stuff in the xbox one release, thats because they wanted to show all of their new features in its release. the xbox 360 had solid gaming, and i can only assume that they will bring it back. I for one cant wait for all the features, except maybe the kinect, that seems like a pain in the dick. I heard that they'll make xbox one backwards compatible with no fee, but, you cant always trust resources. anyway, im still going to happily buy the xbox one, and i just find it annoying that people wont stop bitching about
#180 to #175 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
Fair enough, and sorry for not putting up a balanced argument before, I hope the games turn out really well for you and Xbox makes you happy ^.^
User avatar #149 to #134 - thatguywhohasbacon ONLINE (05/30/2013) [-]
1. Xbox has basically the same thing.
2. People flip a **** about the 360's social media **** , the PS4 is just as bad with that button.
5. Probably won't work too well.
7. They aren't making it backwards compatible, they're re-releasing the games on the marketplace for you to rebuy, you won't be able to put a ps2 disc in the drive and play it.
8. You said that was a bad thing on the xbox.

Wait.. Wait.. You pay for every person that watches a film? So if there is a group of you, it is **** more expensive compared to watching it on your own despite buying the film!?
User avatar #127 to #119 - sagedivinity (05/29/2013) [-]
There is a set amount of people who are able to view the content depending on the content's set rule(this differs from video to video). If you go above that amount you have to pay a fee.
#128 to #127 - luwak (05/29/2013) [-]
But..But why.. How can anyone even think of that.. It's not like they have enough money anyway, this will most likely send them into an even worse state, like what Windows 8..
User avatar #129 to #128 - sagedivinity (05/30/2013) [-]
Well it could just be speculation as Microsoft has yet to confirm or deny most of the rumors that have us angry, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.
#135 to #129 - sagedivinity has deleted their comment [-]
#132 to #129 - luwak (05/30/2013) [-]
I'm going to have a guess that if they do introduce this whole new system of fee's and what not.. Their console will not sell until it's relatively cheap and people will think "meh, I'll give it a try for the £100 I bought it for" - I also read that if you aren't in places such as America, half the software wont be available.. Again, that would impact any profits not marginally, but insanely..
#139 to #132 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
The Xbox One costs £599.99 -__-
User avatar #158 to #139 - sagedivinity (05/30/2013) [-]
Can you give a link, please.

Because if that's true Microsoft has lost.
#171 to #158 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
You need to login to view this link

And it's being released on the 31st of december??
User avatar #186 to #171 - sagedivinity (05/30/2013) [-]
Oh that Amazon price is just a place holder and is subject to change. When the actual price is revealed that will drop.

Why the 31 though? After Christmas? The time of the year where most kids send their parents out to spend money on these types of things.

Maybe they don't want the console to be overshadowed by the PS4's release. They may even be doing this so they have enough time to respond to the PS4 or change the console so it doesn't have any of the bull crap that has been rumored.
#190 to #186 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
certainly bloody hope so, I know the hard core Xbox gamers will be pissed if microsoft keep going the way they are
User avatar #184 to #171 - dragonofanarchy (05/30/2013) [-]
Lil side note to the price, the xbox one also give the user commands like what games to play what music to listen to, link to the video www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUE-cTsaK6g
User avatar #179 to #171 - dekyrptonian (05/30/2013) [-]
that was a fake price, that is was too absurd
#183 to #179 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
It's on amazon
User avatar #189 to #183 - dragonofanarchy (05/30/2013) [-]
She might not be good at photoshop but i am good at google, plus i get emails from amazon on offers and i can confirm they are starting at that price with the possibility of it coming down OR going up

700 bucks american is crazy, thank you
#168 to #158 - luwak (05/30/2013) [-]
I heard just now that it was going to cost £599.99 too..
#141 to #139 - luwak (05/30/2013) [-]
I meant when the price has come down from no-body buying this terrible product xD
#148 to #141 - dragonsgirl (05/30/2013) [-]
Ahhh, well still I can't believe they started it off at that price XD
#154 to #148 - luwak (05/30/2013) [-]
Yup, That's a pretty heafty amount! **** that if I have to pay on top of that fee's just to watch a film with a couple of mates.. To then it exiting when I go grab a drink -__-
User avatar #138 to #132 - sagedivinity (05/30/2013) [-]
Yeah I've heard the same thing and I'm sure that this one is actually true. Not every country has the same channels and apps that are available here. So a lot of the systems "All-In-One" features will be limited to people who live in the US and have a decent and consistent Internet connection with the money to afford all of the subscriptions and fees.
#142 to #138 - luwak (05/30/2013) [-]
Yeah, well glad someone else has heard about this, well, it seems like the Xbox One is going to be one huge let down!
User avatar #152 to #142 - sagedivinity (05/30/2013) [-]
I hope not I don't want the other consoles to lose a competitor.

Yup that's what they're talking about, also you get adverts after you bought the fricken movie! Then if you get up and leave the room to go to the bathroom or get something to eat while the adverts are playing the Kinect will see that you've gone STOP THE ADVERTS AND WAIT TILL YOU GET BACK. ^.^ so yeah.

oh there it is. well all of the other consoles had their reveal, and had their eyes on xbox as if to say "you better have something good" but the xbox reveal was a flop and was received horribly, so it's as if they're shooting themselves like the guy is in the gif.
