I also have the ps4 on preorder, but I think BF4 on XB1 will look identical, and I heart the XB1 controller.

There is also the element of getting in at launch and those out there with the wait and see stance on next gen consoles.
I'm almost 100% certain that I'll get both the 360 version and the PS4 version. I was stating that AVSers aren't likely to be able to go into a match and completely turn the tide on next-gen consoles like we can easily do now. With the typical 4-8 of us that typically run together, we can join a current game, be down by 300 tickets, and still win. In a 64 player game, we're just a small cog in the machine.
That doesn't mean it will be impossible, however. I recall more than a few games where just myself and a single friend and I would turn a bad team around and win the game. That may still be possible with 32 people, but never with 64. Too bad for Lazy and Honde, since they'll be playing either alone or, at most, with each other and nobody else except blueberries. Given that Blica could also be playing on his One in the bathroom while sitting on his toilet or taking a shower, that could further add to the frustration.
As for the controller, I'm amazed that so many people that consider themselves as "gamers" claim they can't use more than one. Hell, my wife would seamlessly swap between the Xbox/PS3 controllers long before she became a true gamer. I still do it with very, very little difficulty...it's actually harder for me to go from playing an Xbox game with one button configuration and go back to BF than it is to switch controllers for the same game.
