  1. As sales on Nintendo's latest HD console continue at a slow pace, it was only a matter of time before the company was knocked from its seat as the top selling gaming hardware manufacturer. With sales of PS4 seemingly quite...

    Well that's what happens when a company puts profit over people in an already competitive market. Microsoft thought they already had the edge because of the 360's success and it backfired.

    I honestly couldn't say which console I would buy, if they were the same price. I do know I would go for the cheaper console, which ever that would be. But since I am PC only, I don't have to worry about it.

    I was thinking of maybe picking one up, but I want to wait awhile to make sure there are no major hardware issues with either console. Early adopters usually get shafted and it will be quite some time before we see how either console fairs under real world use.

    I am defiantly going to get a PS4. I knew since I first heard that these companies started to make them that I was going to get the PS4. I always thought that Sony was a better console company then Microsoft. Everything I want to play Sony has it and the few games that I do want to play on the Microsoft side, 9 times out of 10 they make a PC version for it.

    Either way I win :D

    Was scared by all the laser deaths in PS3s but my original model (aka fat PS3) is still going strong, but the reduced media centre style features of the PS4 have made me hold off on picking one up. That and the fact the last game I played on PS3 was The Last Of Us, and have had no other urge to buy a game or replay an old one on it. Still, it's been a good bluray and media player during it's life :)
