Console Wars: PlayStation 4 clear favorite


Comparison of a new generation of video game consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One began long before the official announcement. Now that the new game consoles, and even got presented the first official details on their technical characteristics, people had more foundation to continue the kind of “console war.”

Unfortunately for fans of the Xbox, which, by the way, and noticed it yourself, it becomes apparent that the Xbox One is beginning to lose ground to its main competitor from the Japanese company in several key respects.

First, it should be noted great indignation of people (puzzled even make angry petition) associated with the use of used games and policies of DRM (protection) which will be used in the new Xbox One, and that potentially can at least seriously reduce the market b / u Games . The excitement among the players came back in the early rumors that reported that the new console will use a security system that requires registration and binding each purchased game to game online profile. It is automatically called into question the use of used games purchased, for example, is on sale. Perhaps for the Russian market, this problem may not seem so sharp as to the west side, where the market b / the games are very developed, but it is not. The fact is that in this case players will not even be able to share games with your friends, because the security system immediately detects that the copy of the game is already registered to another user.

Microsoft, in turn, tries to calm people down and says it’s not all as bad as it seems. But it does not give any official details on this. Some sources indicate that the solutions to this problem the company may choose a policy of charge when a player got the game from his friend will still have to pay a certain amount of money for the system to allow him to enjoy it. But the question still hangs in the air and official comments on it are not given.

PlayStation fans, in turn, without waiting for official comment on the protection of the new PS4 Sony decided to just take by storm, making the petition of the refusal of such a system of protection (if any). And according to recent reports, the company is seeing all the negative shouts, really decided to review some of the details the user agreement, although no details in this regard is not reported.

Another key point that can cross the scales in favor of the PlayStation 4 may be a matter of necessity online connectivity boxes. After all, despite the denial of information on Microsoft, Xbox One that would require a permanent connection to the Internet, the company still noticed that at least once every 24 hours console will require going online.

It would seem that this is not so scary – just once a day to connect to the web. But the trouble is that I still have a lot of players from different countries do not have that same opportunity – access to the network for connecting to Microsoft. Even once a day.

Sony, in turn, immediately announced that such draconian measures are alien to it, the new PlayStation 4 will not require mandatory connection to the web, and all the games (unless it is the MMO) can be played without being online, without any requirements or restrictions.

These two key facts may ultimately play a role to the PlayStation 4. If Sony will retain the same look at the politics game and after a game of E3 2013, Microsoft will not help even the exclusive gaming titles, no matter how impressive they may be.
