I imagine the +$100 is the price of that surveillance camera that comes with the console.

Microsofts statement could be valid... just that they weren't specific enough in the currency they were measuring value in.

A console at launch? Physically impossible for it to over-deliver on anything except disappointment.
yeah, I smell a load of bs and Microsoft trying to make their outrageous prices seem like they're the good guys. Consumer's rule the market, not the company's, and when company's start to tell you what you should be thinking, I call it quits.

I bought a pair of shoes 3 years ago for 20 dollars and wore them for 3 years. That's over-delivering on value. A console at launch? Physically impossible for it to over-deliver on anything except disappointment.

When did this become the gaming forum?

It won't deliver thousands of dollars worth of entertainment to anyone, especially not to someone strictly focused on gaming.
I can agree with this.

I'm sure it's well worth the price tag, but over-delivering? That's a bit much. It seems like every time a Microsoft rep gets asked a question about some of the more controversial features, they lose their composure and just throw out "HALO! TV! KINECT!". Did anybody see the interview with Major Nelson where they asked him questions off of reddit? He intentionally worked around answering some of the better questions, and at a point even just threw out "Did you see the exclusives?!". I think the system looks great (minus the restrictions), but Microsoft is just doing a really poor job trying to justify their questionable decisions with it.

When did this become the PS4 forum? Not one legitimate post in this entire thread.

To the right person it might deliver thousands of dollars worth of entertainment, but perhaps not to someone strictly focused on gaming.

I'll wait & see before I pass judgement on either console. I'm approaching both cautiously.

Also like to point out when buying the console at launch, $499 for the console+ $59.99 for XBL+ $59.99 for at least one game= $618.98 before tax, while the PS4 $399+ an optional 49.99 for PS+ (only if you want mulitplayer access and free monthly games)+ $59.99 for one game= $508.98 with PS+ while $458.99 without PS+ all before taxes. Correct anything if I'm wrong or something. So PS4 still a better deal than the Xbox One.
Any way you slice it, the PS4 is still $100 cheaper, which is a huge victory for Sony (amongst all the other victories they garnered at E3.) But it is not over $100 cheaper. PS+ is just as mandatory as XBL is now, although PS+ is $10 cheaper (but you can also find XBL for $50 pretty much everywhere online, if not cheaper.)
Two games on the PS4 have already been announced as actually not needing the PSN to function -- Planetside 2 and DC Universe Online. Apparently Publishers have some say as to whether or not mandatory PSN service applies to their game, or if you have to go through PSN to access their stuff.

You know you've got a shitty product when you have to release statements defending every aspect of it.

I did not laugh during Sony's conference (well I did when Nomura showed up, that dude is always hilarious) but I mean every cent. Xbox One delivers thousands of dollars of value onto you the consumer. If you can't see all that value then perhaps you need some Cloudtm glasses to trulygrasp the value of the One.
Lol

You guys don't get it, you are actually getting THOUSANDS of dollars of value with the xbox one thanks to the power of the cloudtm. Thanks to the infinite power of the cloud the PS4 can't compete! You'll be getting incredible services that no other device offers such as Netflix, HBO, and even Youtube! It even comes with an INTERNET BROWSER all services require a yearly payment of xbl gold, non refundable.


So stop bitching and give in to the infinite power of the cloudtm which will absolutely floor the pathetic and weak PS4 this holiday season! Also, fable 3 for free!!!!!
Please tell me all of that was sarcasm.
Yes he was being sarcastic, I swear he nearly died from laughter when Sony's E3 show happened, hell everyone nearly did at the ONE's expense of course
