Those are the touted features they are bragging about. The state of console gaming is far worse than I imagined than. I haven't bought a console since the Wii and the last game I bought for that was 6 years ago. It looks like the only thing I missed is disappointment.

You know, I've been pc gaming since before I was console gaming, but I still wouldn't pass on console gaming for the thing that I *thought* was of central importance in the gamin arena - mainly, games. Currently going through almost a decade of games from the JRGP "Tales of XXXXX" series and, frankly, it's the most fun I've had in a game since Mass Effect 2. While certain things are nice to have, isn't focusing on console OS "features" kind of beside the point? Heck, I'm still waiting for Steam to put in the invisible mode myself and thousands of users have been asking for since the service came out, and I still use it, despite that being a feature I *desperately* want. You know how much of a downer it is to know that every time I sign on to Steam to play Civilization V online with one of my buddies my nephew will see me on and not playing with him, and then my sister will be asking me to make more time to play with the nephew in the future?
Sometimes it's good to remind yourself that these things are built to play games and that's generally what you want to buy them for - unless you're *really* buying into the whole console-as-media-center thing. As it stands, neither of these new consoles have games that are convincing me to buy them, but if/when they do, I won't be sitting there saying "Well, the console doesn't have an overt enough battery indicator for my controllers - I think I'll pass until it does."
Battery indicator for the controler. Xbox 360 has had that for YEARS.Xbox 1 is so far behind in the little things its pathetic. USB support for external drives aprently is non existant at the moment. When they do bring it in an update, hopefully it is not limited to 16GB or whatever the 360 was limited too.Meanwhile ps4 can have huge external drives.
This is interesting for these reasons:Firstly it is an EA game and with Battlefield 4 and Simcity on their track record I don't see confidence as an all time high.Secondly Activision also announced that Destiny will be the biggest seller in this new generation. Obviously it is too early to tell and the claims from all these companies are bold at best. It may no longer be a launch title but Watchdogs is also set for release this year.
Maybe it's just me.... but I'm not all that interested in this "yet". From the trailers it looks too busy and will make me dizzy. Just a bunch of playing around blasting each other. Probably fun for a little while, but would get old fast.Not sure, I'm going to pass judgement until I hear the review and see more of this game. It's not an automatic buy for me, that's for sure.
I'm under the impression that people who got a new console is just staring at them right now. My friend with PS4 is playing Fifa on his PS3 and my other friend with X1 is playing 360. Just a comment, not saying it's good or bad.
