After hearing about the price of the Xbox1, I'm not buying it.  $500 bucks for a system?! Then there's online, kinect, controllers, games.

Isn't the Kinect included with the Xbox One? Overall I feel that PS4 just punched  the Xbox One in the gut.  Not just because of its $399 price tag, but also the ability to share/sell used copies of games, their independent game support, and the fact you don't have to be always connected to the internet.

I realize it's early to judge how things will play out, but PS4 looks like the console for me.

So I heard on the radio this morning an interesting talk about all this.

When the PS2 was king of the consoles, Sony thought they could get away with a $600 console. They were too confident and gamers went for the cheaper Xbox 360.

So when the 360 was king of consoles, Microsoft was also too confident and thought they could get away with DRM. It's slowly showing that it was a bad move on their part.

Gamers are smart though. Especially hardcore gamers. They're not against turning their back on a console this quickly.

That said, Microsoft showed off some better games. It will be hard to tell what does better this holiday season.

With the Wii though, Nintendo went after casual gamers. Big time. Problem is, they're "casual" gamers. They don't follow your brand or the new consoles. Only hardcore gamers do that. So with the Wii U, they're having trouble getting their footing with both the hardcore and casual gamers.

I made the choice to pre-order my PS4 and just wait on the Xbone. I prefer the stance Sony has on Indie games over Microsoft, plus it's $100 cheaper. I also like lending my games to friends and family.

PS4 is 100 dollars cheaper than the Xbone, and has more dedicated RAM to video games than both of the other consoles. PS4 is winning this generation for sure.
