Yes it is more expensive to game at the levels higher than the current consoles. And yet again 99% of the public doesn't want to have to deal with it. I agree games are cheaper but keeping up with the hardware isnt. Its easily more than 400 dollars to upgrade your basic PC to a gaming pc capable of running the games on the consoles. You are a SMALL niche market. Not the core market.
And for all the other stuff it does ... no one EVER said a console would replace a PC, its just a better choice for casual gaming for MOST
Yeah you know nothing about the PC market or the PC gaming scene in general. Stop commenting on it as if you have an educated opinion about it. Just because you get confused at the many numbers that can be listed on a videocard's spec list, doesn't mean the rest of the population does.
Steam very recently had 7 million concurrent users online. That's one digital distribution platform on the PC. One. Niche my farking ass.
Basically everything other than offline games is behind xbox live membership requirements.... even the internet browser.
All reasons I don't want to give a dime to Microsoft'x "Xbox Division" Microsoft Devices and Studios Group. They treat their customers like f$%ing imbacils with their antiquated and repressive DRM hopes and dreams they wish to impose upon us. It took the whole internet to get pissed off about "Always On" before they realized it was a bad idea? They need to have a regular guy come in to their Redmond HQ and be honest with them. Leaving these guys alone too long in a room leads to some really bizarre and outrageous ideas.

the XBox one has SmartGlass which integrates a/ phones, tablets etc.. to control the device.. the ps4 integrates w/ .. well the Vita.. which really doesn't do much if anything at the moment.
The Kinect itself is exponentially superior to the PS eye or whatever they call it now.
The XBox one has Wi-Fi direct connect.. the ps4 does not.
The Xbox one has HDMI in and out.. the ps4 only goes out.
The Xbox one also has a better WiFi capabilities running off dual band and more options....
Are most people in this forum a "Power User"? pfft.. Considering people are looking for deals I doubt it. A "Power User" would own both.. now wouldn't they? I'll repeat my previous statement.. the PS4 is a pure gaming console.. the Xbox 1 is more of an entertainment hub that games also (but doesn't have the gaming power of the ps4).
This is opinion of basically every expert review there is.
I'm always up for learning more about tech that I might have missed so maybe you can explain some of these things to me.
1. Not sure all the details of smartglass but the PS App also interfaces with the PS4 to control it or be used a second screen...not used yet but sounds like the same concept.
2. What is Wi-fi direct connect? Is that microsoft's terms for WPS?
3. HDMI in vs. in/out is definitely the biggest difference between the consoles. Different concepts of the future of entertainment.
4. Xbox one does support dual band but what other options differentiate the two?
You guys better still be in high school or I'm extremely embarrassed for you. Here is a newsflash for you since it's apparently escaped your keen eyes, BOTH the Xbox One and PS4 are awesome new consoles and IF there is going to be a clear winner this generation, we won't know for several years. Stop being such pathetic fanboys.
What does my statement have to do with what you wrote? The PS4 is indeed WAY harder to find. I stick to my statement. Thanks for the insults though.
The console war is over. XB and PS gonna get crushed with offerings from Nvidia, Steam, ect... Not to mention they are nothing special considering their graphic performance output has been matched 2+ years ago. Back in 05 when the 360 was 18 months ahead of the top tier cards is was appealing and the PS3 was about 9-12 months ahead plus it added blu-ray but now they are just boxes of fhhht that cannot even play their own legacy games and they want a yearly subscription WTF.
