will get both eventually, but there aren't enough exclusives for me to justify getting either right now tbh, I will save up and probably get one next christmas or maybe not even till 2015.

just upgraded my PC with a high end graphics card so that should see me through till then for "next gen" games

plus still have my PS3/360/Wii for games as well.

I got the PS4 mainly because of the exclusives coming out. However also because it's a games console rather than an entertainment system. Sony made the right decision in focusing solely on gaming. I also can't stand the idea of talking to my xbox in order to perform tasks and the fact that the kinect is forced upon when not many people would want to use it.

No idea. It seems Sony are playing it safe by keeping the same names for their consoles. Xbox One sounds like "the one".

The Xbox sounds better in casual conversation eg.

Guy 1: So lads, what are you getting out of all the new consoles?
Guy 2: I'm a Playstation man, so PS4 for me
Guy 3: I'm getting the One
Guy 4: Same, I'm getting the One two

Something about having "the one" compared to PS4 is more appealing. It says I've got what you all need. The one. Maybe I'm just infatuated with the name.

Xbox One is a terrible name. I can imagine a kid asking his parents for it for Christmas and them getting him an original Xbox.

Well that's your opinion. It's more creative than anything Sony have been doing.
While saying Xbox One is not particularly appealing to the ears, referring to the console's nickname as "the one" makes it look like it's like the "ultimate console". I'm guessing it was a marketing ploy by Microsoft. They were selling the dream and I just happened to buy it

I've literally never heard anyone refer to it as 'the one' before you

Fair do's - I thought that's how people would refer to it. Like some people would've called the Xbox 360 Xbox/the 360
Ah if that's not the case I'm sure it'll catch on haha

It might catch on after a while I suppose, I think 'the one' might be to vague though, 360 couldn't be anything else, but 'the one' could be anything really

Yeah the one could be anything, but if someone asks if you have a PS4 and you say you have "the one", people will catch on hopefully. Help me get this to be a worldwide trend

You'll know who won the war by what name the old generation uses for any console. I feel this gen they'll be calling their child's console a 'Playstation'.

Because of the PS1 and PS2s almost monopolistic success they will always use "Playstation". The older teachers at my school were saying it back when the PS3 was £425, was selling a lot worse, had rubbish online and a barren wasteland of a games library.

It doesn't happen immediately. I remember during the NES when consoles were called 'a Nintendo', then with the Mega Drive kids were 'playing on their Sega' (from what I know, in America they still used 'Nintendo' because the SNES was more successful there), then the PS1 changed it to 'a Playstation' or even 'a Sony' (including all possible pronunciations), that definitely changed with the Xbox 360. I more often hear how someone is erroneously 'playing on their Xbox' than Playstation, but given how historic and successful the PS1 and PS2 were and that the PS3 and PS4 are still around, it's understandable you will still here the odd adult say 'Playstation', but more likely they'll be using it correctly with knowledge of what's being played, than those using 'Xbox'.

Can someone who has both consoles balance out the pros and cons of each console please, rather than people who don't have both making premature judgements.

I don't think many people will have both at this stage.

I will hopefully buy the Xbox One in the summer

Reasons:

  • I've been on Xbox live for 9 years now and love the online service and have made many friends who are also going to be getting xbox one
  • The controller is better
  • I think kinect functionality could be useful not just for gaming but as a multimedia device
  • I prefer FPS and 3PS games to other genres and there aren't many good ones on PS4. Looking forward to Titanfall, Halo 5 and the next gears of war when it's announced.
  • Many of my friends who bought the PS4 said there aren't any good games currently other than battlefield and fifa which are multiplatform.
