I blame NeoGAF and all their fear mongering rumors. :P lol. However, I think both the consoles will have launch issues and they're both being rushed to make the christmas sales. Whatever issues the consoles launch with will probably be resolved within 6 months is my guess.

It'll be interesting to see. I bought a PS3 at launch and had no issues with it, its the only system I ever purchased at launch. I've gone through 3 xbox 360s, but that was hardware related issues. I think Sony has their stuff together better. They've taken a few hits recently with some launch exclusives being delayed and some features not being available at start, but as long as everything that is available works correctly It should be a good go.

 

I can comment on the dropping parties on Xbox One... that happened on 360 from time to time, where the party automatically disbanded, or people were kicked out one at a time, booted and rejoined. It sounds like a recurring issue, but if it happens as little as it did on 360 it shouldn't be that big of an issue.

The party system on PS3 was much simpler. It didn't really exist. :haha:

 

The only way I could play a game with someone is if I joined them in a game they were already in, or got an invite. I think there was a way to join up with friends in PS home and then launch the game from there, but I only used PS Home maybe 3 times.

 

I remember getting a Super NES a couple days after launch.. a friend of mine got it on launch day and called me to rub it in..

 

Friend: "Hi... huh?... oh... yeah..." *acting busy and preoccupied even though he called me* "Guess what I'm playing?"

 

*the volume turns up with sounds of mario jumping in the background and spinning his cape*

 

Me: "I hate you."

 

XD

 

I remember my best launch console. The Dreamcast.. I pre-ordered it on a site called E-Toys and it was delivered on launch day with free shipping. That was a great day. ^_^

 

And the next console I got after that was a PS2 after it was already out for close to two years. And then I got a PS3 just 1 1/2 years ago. lol. I haven't had a console at launch or close to launch since the dreamcast so it doesn't bother me if I have to wait a few months or even half a year for a PS4. I won't wait 5 years like I did with the PS3 tho. :P

Hopefully they ripped off XBL's model. I remember before 360 had party chat, there was only private chat... so if more than 2 friends were playing we had to listen to all the douchebages and 12 year olds playing COD -_-;. I'd always mute my mic and turn the chat volume all the way down when I played by myself. Party Chat was a godsend, you only had to listen to your friends and thats it.

They probably will have them fixed in about 6 months, but if you buy on launch and have a hardware problem, your either screwed or have to wait a month or two to get it back from Microsoft

Yea I agree, it was either a bunch of 5 year old's or a bunch of adults arguing about something stupid like which superhero could beat who in a fight

That comic.. lmao. What a waste of a new console. XD

 

I've never used a windows 8 phone so I don't know if apps ask for certain permissions when installing like they do on android phones.. but with the way the xbox one (or PS4) share user details to its affiliates and partners, I wonder how long it will be before apps are required to show their permissions on a console. Like on my phone, I can see what the netflix app is accessing on my phone, but I have no idea what permissions it has on a PS3. And with both console's having camera options, I'd like to know if a facebook or twitter app has camera or storage permissions. Same with username and full contact information access. If I have my real name on my PS4 for PSN purchases, I'd like to not let twitter associate my real name with my twitter account just because I install the app and then it accesses that information from my system without my knowledge or consent.

      Finished Ultraman on Netflix, the story was good but it left too much unanswered... and the biggest travesty was the CGI. Holy cow it was wildly inconsistent and mostly all bad. The distance shots looked like some PS1 stuff, like they didnt know what shading was. They spent all the money on the final fight which was awesome, and then the last few minutes got really bad.

      I need to buy a lawn tractor soon.. maybe this weekend. The last lawn tractor I owned was a piece of crap hand me down that nickel and dimed me to death until I got rid of it and got a decent push mower instead. But my yard now has just over an entire acre of just grass. No way in hell I can push mow that. I might get a Cub Cadet or John Deere tractor. I need to see what might be on sale. I had the lawn mowed at the end of last year right when we moved in and its $40 per mow. x_x

      I never watched the original Fruit Basket because the description just sounded too silly. The premise of all anime is that at least one of the protagonists has a flaw. Luffy can't swim, Inuyasha turns human on the full moon, etc. I just generally dislike when a flaw is so overwhelming it's a massive inconvenience. BUT Since the simuldub started Friday I'll be watching the reboot. It seems to have a huge following and the first ep was quite good.

      Watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse tonight and I have to say the movie was spectacular and definitely lived up to all the hype surrounding it. Probably one of my favorite superhero movies now and I fully understand why it won an Oscar.
      Story was great from start to finish, though I really don't know what to think of the animation style it certainly worked in this movies favor (a little jarring at first but I was definitely starting to feel it toward the end), and while I'm not usually into the music used into the show I have to say the soundtrack is fucking awesome. Kinda wish I would of went to see this in the theater but that didn't really diminish my enjoyment of the movie.
      Really hope we get another one like this (seems there is a sequel of sorts in the works and a few spin-offs as well) because it definitely deserves one. I also have to say the Spider-Man Noir is probably going down as my favorite Spider-Man.
