- i almost didn't buy the ps4 due to how much i loved the 360 controller, but i actually love the ds4, i was very skeptical but i actually really like it
- the whole friends thing is tough, you have to make a decision on that
long story short, i didn't buy the ps4 because i was in love with it, but because i didn't like the XB1, but after owning it, i am very happy with it.. i already had an AVS guy that introduced me to a whole clan and i am part of them now...
so once again not saying ps4 is better than xb1, i haven't played cod on xb1, it is just my experience with cod on ps4
Thanks for the feedback, greatly appreciated. I have a few friends/co-workers that made the switch and they're raving. They were solid XBOX peeps back in the day and suddenly they're PS4. Though I think it's got more to do with the price thing since last gen, they went with the lower priced console as well. Some say it's the same as far asgraphics are concerned and at the same time, others have said that it's nicer, a noticeable jump. I just don't know who to believe.
yes, tough choice on the friends list.

We had twins three weeks ago today (thus the reason for the lack of gaming) and I am constantly holding a baby in my arms. Many times, all the remotes are pretty far away. I absolutely love being able to say "Xbox, Go to Netflix" and it does and I can then navigate through netflix easily and play what I want. Even better is saying "Xbox, Pause" when a baby starts crying or I have to get up to change a diaper. I hardly even use the controller. I also really like the Xbox OneGuide. Once you get the hang of it and learn the right commands, navigating the tv menus are easy. Plus, it will be awesome to be able to snap to a football game in the middle of an xbox game.
I honestly didn't think prior to using it that the kinect features would be so great but now I can't imagine not using them.
I think the actual games are going to be the same or close enough on either system to not really matter. Plus Titanfall is an X1 exclusive, at least for the first installment though it could be for life, and I think that is going to be the COD killer.
I don't know how many players PS4 has on COD vs X1 but I still don't care for the PS controller and, even though I will get a PS4, I will still play all my multiplatforms on the X1 due to the controller and Xbox live. Plus, I have friends that I have been gaming with since being a beta tester for Xbox live that I want to continue playing with.
CONGRATULATIONS on the new kids! I didn't realize. I know that one at a time is tough but two at a time is just insane. I cannot imagine.
You know you are onto something with this voice command stuff. I know that I can sell this to the wife so that she can play her games on the X1 or command Netflix and Hulu. With a 3 year old and a 1 year old, our house is a mess as well as having to change diapers and make sure toys are off the floor. She can youtube a walk through for assassin's creed AND play it at the same time theoretically right? Hmm, interesting. This might be the year that we swap systems (PS4 downstairs and XBOX in the family room vs. 360 in the basement and PS3 in the family room right now). I didn't even think of these features that you brought up.
TitanFall might actually make me swap systems AGAIN when they come out. There's no way the wife is going to let me spend another $1k for another set of systems! I do think in the near future, when the basement gets finished, I will have two TVs in separate areas of the basement and each will have its own system. One XBOX and on PS. While upstairs will have one device; XBOX One (most likely)

I have had the benefit of playing on my son's XB1, and I really like the new controller...particularly the sticks. But a few friends who have played both have said the experience is better on PS4, primarily due to the connection.
I also have many more friends on XBox, but I haven't really played with any of them on Ghosts. I think that's more of a factor of family obligations and won't change with the move to a new system.
LOL! Beasted. Man, that term brings back memories (anyone remember the "Hangout Thread" and "Official COD4 Thread" those were the days.). I can still beast some if my connection is all well and good but most nights, I'm struggling along with a 15-15 or 14-17 or 16-15. I just can't quite get over the hump consistently. I do enjoy it and am learning to look up and down especially on Chasm and Tremor and Overlord and a few more but the head to head battles can kiss my ass. So if the PS4 experience is decidedly better due to "less perceived lag" that might push me to go that way. I hedged anyways since I have the digital for XBOX 360 and $10 X1 I can still hop on X1 and play if the wife is away. On the other days, I will be on PS4...That can change, the wife is a HUGE fan of Uncharted so we might switch systems at some point next year. LOL!
