Re: Xbox One...who else is on board?
I have the playstation 4 now and had both the 360 and ps3 from last gen and I can honestly tell you that the new psn has closed the gap as far as online multiplayer is concerned. People tend to bring last gens experience of online functionality on psn to the ps4 expecting it to be the same. It is a huge leap from last gen. There is finally a more comprehensive and cohesive online component to psn(cross game party chat, invites,etc)! Also at $50 with free games, dlc, and other content as opposed to $60 with Xbox live why on earth would you pay more for less? One also does not have to go through a paygate in order to use apps such as Netflix, YouTube, the web browser or the in game dvr functionality on Playstation network. Live streaming on the ps4 to twitch, ustream, Facebook, etc is easy and extremely satisfying. I find it funny that Microsoft being the first to reveal and advertise twitch integration with their console has failed to get live streaming to the service at launch. Thought this was interesting. Although I do consider the metacritic score for games, movies, etc to be one of the many good tools that help in my decision making process when making a purchase, this still should be taken with a grain of salt. Still, the ps4's launch lineup is proving to be better than the Xbox one's overall: http://www.nowgamer.com/features/216..._xbox_one.html

Once again, why pay $100 more for a system that offers less? I'll most likely end up getting an Xbox one when it becomes cheaper because I love games and the exclusives are great on both consoles, but I cannot justify the Xbox one's price atm for what they offer.
For one, I enjoy the exclusives better on the play station console than the Xbox. I can count on one hand how many exclusives I enjoy on Microsofts system as opposed to the many triple A ones on sony's. Not to mention that the ps4 is a more powerful system and it's already being proven that with the resolution and graphics performance of the cross platform games like call of duty: ghosts and battlefield 4. I think the tables will turn in favor of the playstation 4 this generation.
