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.

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.
