It really doesn’t make sense why people are blowing this out of proportion. Everybody is just freaking out because Xbox is making you sign in online once a day if you want to play. There isn’t a penalty for not signing in other than not being able to play until you do so. Why is this such a problem? being an Xbox 360 owner there will have to be some major advantages to switch to PS4 before I do so. I don’t think the used games, sharing games, and having to sign in every day situation is that big of a deal. People with PS3s are just looking for something to complain about to make Xbox look worse than it already is. How about the fact that the ps4 will have shitty servers compared to Xbox. How about there UI for the system. I have yet to see anything from PS4 that compares to the Xbox’s windows 8. I have yet to see anything from PS4 that compares to Xbox’s seamless switching between TV and games. I have yet to see PS4 allowing you to play 2 games at once. Sony’s version of kinect is no where near as powerful as Xbox’s. PS4 has no way to scroll between things by voice. They are both pretty equaly in graphics, but yet Xbox is much better rounded in internet and TV exploring. Why are none of these things ever brought up about the PS4? I just don’t understand why everybody is freaking out at the Xbox, when honestly, the PS4 has way worse petty problems. I would much rather buy a console from a company that is clearly more powerful and successful. Would you rather buy something from Microsoft, or would you rather buy something from Sony? You can call me a fan boy, but i’m just looking at what I see and I see a whole bunch of people looking for a problem in Xbox when it’s not really that big of a problem. People are just jumping on the bandwagon and barely anyone has a original opinion. All of the Xbox bashing seems to be alike, which makes me think people are just getting this stance from places like reddit.
My Xbox is connected 24/7 to the internet anyways. I don’t plan on going anywhere where I don’t have the ability to sign in for 2 seconds and then disconnect. You don’t need a strong or consistent connection, just one that is good enough to sign in for a minimal amount of time. Why are people buying 400-500$ gaming systems if they don’t already have internet. You shouldn’t even be looking at these gaming systems if you cant afford one of the most basic commodities, internet.
