    It works, trust me. They have done a great job.
    I don't doubt that it works. I have seen videos of it and it looks like an interesting concept. I just don't know how you can concentrate on both at the same time.

    Lol, this.

    I can barely talk to other people when I'm playing F1, let alone concentrate on something else.

    Exactly. Games like F1 require full concentration. You're going so fast that any error can screw you over.

    Bad publicity of XBone has led to ps4 been hyped out and people that I know either have purchased or are opting for ps4.

    Me I suspect XBone long term will have the better range of games and better online gaming experience.

    But it's difficult not to go for ps4 now that all my mates have/are.

    Answer: for the first time ever I'm going to be a sheep and therefore get ps4
    My actual opinion: long term XBone will be better and I want this to be so despite going on to own a ps4

    On another note - mind you I will never follow the Apple flock unless I truly believe their phone is good . Long live Android os.

    It makes sense to buy what your mates have tbh. Gaming with friends > any other gaming experience.

    I can assure you there is no judder whatsoever. My brother has the same console and we have both had no problems are enjoying this console sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooo much. I just ordered ryse son of rome now cannot wait.
    I can assure you, there is judder, and if you look around the UK reviews that have mentioned it then you'll see that I'm not the only one. It's practically a requirement that it's introduced in order to match the frame rates up. MS could fix it to allow the xbox to output at 50Hz when only displaying TV content, (but I doubt that will happen), but that problem will always be there when a game is on screen at the same time.

    It's like when you play a blu-ray on a TV that doesn't support 24fps playback, and it bumps it up to 25fps. You'd think that it wouldn't make much difference just adding that one more frame per second, but it looks like you're watching in fast forward. Here, one in six of the frames that you're watching is wrong.

    Why in gods name you would spend a HUNDRED quid more for a console that is technically WEAKER is beyond me.
    The specs are irrelevant. Price and exclusives decides the better console. Otherwise Xbox would've trounced PS2 for a start.

    Incorrect and your example makes little sense after some logical thinking.

    The Playstation 2 was released on 4th March 2000 whereas the original xbox was released a year (and a bit) later on 15th November 2001. The Playstation 2 dominated the market as it had a year head start. Developers were already used to developing for it and games already had it thus it dominated.

    The exact same thing can be said about the Xbox 360 and PS3. The Xbox 360 was released in 2005 whilst the PS3 was released a year later thus giving market domination to the 360 for a full year and time for developers to get used to the hardware thus why the Xbox 360 dominated the market whilst the PS3 struggled to catchup.

    Price = The PS4 is Cheaper.

    Exclusives = Exclusives will be better depending on 1) how the developers take advantage of the hardware 2) The Hardware itself. The better the hardware, the better the exclusives and not just graphics wise.

    In fact your post pretty much backs up my point. Cheers.

    I'll state it again, if you spend more money on the console that is technically "weaker" you are an idiot. Obviously if you like Halo and the look of TitanFall then by all means, purchase one but if you're expecting the Xbox One to outmatch the PS4 exclusive wise you're incorrect.

    More seriously, I will probably get a used PS4 in 3 or 4 years if there are any decent games to catch up on.

    But... I'm not an Xbox person. Are you a fanboy, dishing out labels like that to people with differing opinions? That's just weird.

    Forgive me, o logical one. If only you could depart your rare ability of using logic to others, so they could be as intelligent as you.

    depends on the game really i.e forza has loading times = perfecto with tv
    Like saturday night playing ryse alongside UFC is epic lol
    something like BF4 i'd like full screen. Its all voice activated and once you get use to it. It so seamless!

    References only work if the reference would work in the same context if it wasn't a reference, otherwise it's just post-shark Family Guy.

    Then, like I said, you're one of those lucky ones that can't see it. It is there though, it's impossible to get around it.

    And the reviews I'm talking about are by we'll renowned professionals, who actually looked favorably upon the Xbox one. They just pointed out this huge flaw in its implementation in the UK and Europe.

    Of course your user ID would suggest that you'll never admit this technical flaw, even if you can't see it yourself.

    haha no way. I have both consoles i have no bias either way.

    Xbox one wins purely on entertainment and the snap feature is unbeatable alongside its interface.

    I'm glad you like it, I don't see the attraction though, for a whole load of reasons, including the broken frame rate issue, and the fact that I don't see how you can watch one thing and play the other (and for 30 seconds at a time during loading screens I don't see how its worth it). Also, I've paid good money to get a TV the size it is to give me a good gaming experience, why would I want to reduce the space the game takes up?
