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 started Ratchet and Clank on PS4 last week. That game felt so fun. Meanwhile I gave up on metal gear solid V phantom pain. It was too repetitive for me. I'm watching TetraNinja's play through now on youtube. I don't know who this guy is, but his videos are decent so far and his stealth gameplay is far superior to what I was able to accomplish.

      Just finished season 1 of Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans. I enjoyed it, but man I can't help but notice the parallels with Gundam Wing. A young female working for peace, a semi-emotionless male pilot, an antagonist that disguises himself with a mask in a red mobile suit? Eh, maybe I'm looking too much into it, there are more differences than similarities. Since CN has the broadcast rights, I hope Funi eventually gets season 2 on stream... its the only Gundam they have. I will say I'm not the biggest fan of the designs on this one. I liked Gusion and EB-AX2, but that was about it.

      Fucking hell that was a ride. Just finished watching Steins;Gate and I have to say its an amazing show. I finally understand why people love it so much. Characters are pretty interesting (pretty bland and stereotypical but none-the-less interesting), story is completely bonkers (we're talking Serial Experiments Lain and Boogiepop Phantom levels of bonkers) and amazing, and the sheer emotional ride this puts you through is both terrifying and exciting.
      Sure it starts out pretty slow but once you get to the halfway mark it seriously starts moving at an intense pace. I normally don't praise anime this much but this is truly a great show, almost a masterpiece if I've ever seen one (probably one of the only shows I have rated at 10 on MAL that actually deserves the rating for all the right reasons, not just pure enjoyment). I highly recommend watching it if you haven't, it's definitely worth the time investment (and I'll admit it's not for everyone but if you want a show that tears your emotions to shreds and makes you think this is definitely one for you).
      Seriously can't wait for Steins;Gate 0 to start airing on Thursday (really hope CR has the simulcast for it). Now I just need to find time to watch the movie and the OVA before it starts. Also need to hope the VN this is based off of goes on sale on Steam so I can see the actual story that wasn't adapted for the anime (and to see all the other endings).

      I caught up on Overlord's season 2 simuldub. So far it's entertaining but all over the place. There isn't as much action so far which is disappointing. All these characters are so OP, but that was what was great about season 1. Especially since Ainz vs. Shalltear was an amazing finale with two ultra OP characters going at it like a chess game. However I figure everything happening now is leading up to something bigger. They're spending more time world building in season 2 in which they did very little of in season 1. Plus season 3 was ordered. People can say what they want about Funi, but I bet there are some series out there that would have never been renewed past it's first season 6-8 years ago. Props to netflix too even though their series are hit and miss. I finished A.I.C.O. Incarnation last night, while it didn't blow me away, I enjoyed it.. same goes for ID-0. It's come a long way from Toonami, spending days downloading stuff off Limewire and torrents, or staying up til 4am in hopes Sci-Fi played Akira or Vampire Hunter D

      So far Netflix is 1 for 3 on their new series. Sword Gai was ok, but it was more like a GARO/Guyver type clone. B: The Beginning could have been better written. Maybe its the story structure that is throwing me off as they are definitely more western in flow. I'll probably watch both for another season. Children of the Whales was pretty enjoyable and my favorite of the three. I definitely look forward for its most definite second season. It was pretty charming in a Studio Ghibli way.
