    You pay for what you get. If you wanted something more innovative then you should have did your research and opt with the xboxone. It does all this and more.. It uses a smaller or if the sony fanboys like to put it "older" graphics card which isn't old at all just a little outdated but puts out the same graphics. GDDR5 is faster then DDR3 but the xboxone doesnt only have DDR3, its has 32mb of an even faster ram call eSram, that boost the speed of the DDR3 to around the same band width as the GDDR5. The gpu is where the difference is and even so I've seen both and they look just as fantastic as the other. The fact that Microsoft can even tune or tweak something to be as good as GDDR5 shows me the innovation at what a company can do and you forget sony makes hardware, Microsoft makes software. Only the one track and small mind would look at just the gpu. Now I'm enjoying my ps4 as much as my xboxone!! I'm just stating one is as good as the other and if your gonna complain about innovation then your with the wrong company.

    This is incredibly old but your post is hilarious, what is innovative about the XBOX One? The Kinect 2.0 was such a flop they stopped making them mandatory like 7 months after launch. Yes the esRAM is great but the DDR3 is causing a performance bottleneck. And I've played both and here is my thoughts. It's ridiculous to think that one is going to be BAD but in my opinion the PS4 is a step up above the XBOX One. Remote play is an awesome feature especially now that they're doing it for the Z3 line of phones. I have Dish so I love saving some money for an additional joey(retriever). Not to mention MMO releases like PlanetSide 2, and H1Z1 (way in the future for H1Z1). And a feature that is way more amazing than I thought it would be is plugging my headphones straight into the controller. I have boss headphones so it's a huge improvement. Sure it sucks not having DLNA support but I can certainly live with that, I mean why just not run 2nd screen if you have a smart TV (which is probably why they opted for no DLNA support)? I do agree with what he is saying but there is a LOT of opportunity for Microsoft to step it up on the XBOX One.

    Hey! Thanks for writing about me guys ;)

    I feel very let down with what the PS4 can actually do (or not do) compared to Sony were implying the PS4 would do out of the box. Even the Blu ray player is sub par compared to PS3's. My number one improvement would be to patch in all the media playback that PS3 has - music, video etc. It feels like they should come as standard with consoles today so PS4 has been a total step back in that respect. The other would be to make it easier to remote play over the internet, away from home. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I followed all the steps on their site, I set my router for remote access but unless the PS4 is left on and in the same place as my Vita, I get nothing. And I've been trying it in places with good connections as well! There's lots of little things too, namely automatic updates not downloading, loads of crashes, games just dashboarding themselves mid game...
  • Eightboll812 - March 7, 2014 7:29 a.m.

    I agree with a lot of what you wrote. I just wanted to say that I haven't had any (that I remember) crashes or games dashboarding. Maybe you have a defective unit?

    A few of these are good points, I'd love to be able to stream stuff from my laptop or play ANYTHING from a USB. Aside from that, my only major annoyance is that the share button just doesn't work sometimes. For example, I was playing Black Flag the other day, something amusing happened, so I thought I'd share it. When I pressed the button and selected upload video clip, the thumbnail was right and the video timecode was correct, but the gameplay was random stuff from an hour previously. It's happened a fair few times now for me to be annoyed. I did some research and found a lot of people are having the same problem, mostly with disc based releases like Black Flag, Battlefield 4 and CoD Ghosts. Anyone else got this?
  • Timstertimster - February 27, 2014 9:13 a.m.

    Yes. I stopped using it because it hardly ever works at all for me
  • peaceful765 - February 27, 2014 1:44 a.m.

    I want to be able to use the remote play on my Vita with a DS4 controller. Hate use Vita controls for PS4 games (except Marvel Lego). Or why not stream the game footage to phone/tablet but use the DS4 controller which can still be connected via bluetooth to PS4. Shouldn't be hard to integrate with the Playstation app.
  • Timstertimster - February 27, 2014 9:15 a.m.

    Tooooooootally!!! I so want to stream the video signal to my iPad. In the late 90's Sony already had a TV set of this kind. So it certainly isn't a technology issue.
  • SnakeinmyBoot - February 26, 2014 10:02 p.m.

    Haha, shutter glasses still exist. 3D is dumb gimmick that still gets some people to shell out an extra $3.50 for a movie ticket but has become an afterthought in the home entertainment market. Maybe Sony's VR headset will work with 3D Blurays and they're holding 3D support back to sell more of those units when they come out. I thought the PS4 had a standard 2.5mm or 3.5mm cell plug for it's headsets, like the xbox HAD last gen. I'd just use a cheap set with an inline volume control and mic switch. Sony's still lame for hiding a setting like that, though. That's a post-Win 8 M$ UI move right there. External drives would be nice. If I had games installed on my 40GB PS3 when I upgraded to a 120GB, I would have had to plug in an external drive anyway or redownload most everything again. Wait, the background can't be changed on a PS4? What's this generation taking steps backward in many obvious "don't touch unless you improve it" departments? Of course they don't want you streaming stuff you've already bought . They aren't selling from their ridiculous stores as much as they want that way. This is what I hated about the last gen. They went from boxes that could play DVDs in the PS2/Xbox era to overpriced multi-media machines constantly telling me to buy, buy, buy before I can even put a disc in the thing. Offering games is one thing, but trying to sell me movies and music locked to that system or only that manufacturer's line of devices is when I start turn "load disc on start-up" back on. The suspend/ resume thing is an easy fix. Most consoles since 7th gen always got standby power, wasting tiny amounts of juice so you don't have to flip a switch. Though, the memory wasn't probably getting any to save energy. Now both Sony's and M$'s are based on standard PC hardware, and PCs(including Macs) have had a sleep mode for almost 2 decades. It's just a matter of code and working out glitches. This might very well have been another feature Sony cut to get it out the door by November.

    I agree with all of these except for 3D blu-ray. 3D is dead, nobody wants it.
  • homestar99 - February 26, 2014 3:57 p.m.

    I like Twitch but I'd rather be posting funny Youtube videos. Where the fuck is my Youtube support Sony! You get free advertising and I get to do what I love.
  • NoMoneyLeftBoy - February 26, 2014 3:11 p.m.

    I personally use my iPhone earbuds a lot in my DualShock4 but doing so disables the mic on the PS4 camera meaning I can't speak to people in game or use voice recognition feature, which kinda sucks.
  • JMarsella09 - February 26, 2014 3:07 p.m.

    All I want is from the next gen systems right now is games, because when it comes down to it the WiiU has better exclusives than either the PS4 and Xbox one currently.
  • ryan-terry - April 22, 2014 12:11 p.m.

    Lol did you just refer to the WiiU?
  • JMarsella09 - April 22, 2014 3:35 p.m.

    Dude, name 5 high quality exclusives on the PS4 or Xbox one right now. I cannot. The WiiU on the other hand does have a number of high quality exclusives, which is perfectly fine, but considering how many more consoles the PS4 and Xbox one are selling, I think the difference is astounding.
  • Fuzunga - February 26, 2014 1:58 p.m.

    That last thing about the home screen is the biggest thing for me.
  • wolfyman1000 - February 12, 2014 12:30 p.m.

    I think we were disrespected with next gen way not make it simple like ps3 was.and why was it not backwards compatible that way people would mind if they up the price.why cant you download movies or songs its next gen i wana heir my music while i play.its to many things they left out.also simple things seem difficult Like excepting friend request or sending somebody tell playstation those side view indy or otherwise games are corny its a way video game creators get lazy not having to make real have a new system make better games not worse games.why doesnt the internet work at all no youtube are any video watching gave us a system that doesnt do anything besides play games and thats not why we all loved please make these things right!!!!!
  • ryan-terry - April 22, 2014 12:12 p.m.

    Notice how only 1 of those complaints were relevant to it being a GAMING system. Sounds like you should have bought a XB1, bro.
