£429.

Expensive (for a console anyway). But it'll be the only thing I buy like this for another 10 years. And when considering the solid enjoyment I have had from my xbox 360 for the past 4 years, well, it's worth the money.

I have mostly funded it from selling my old xbox 360 games anyway. Hoarded them for years on the off-chance that I'll play them again after completion, but I never do.

8 days. Woooooooo!

Come on, you must try harder.

Aren't we going to have some XBone vs PS4 slanging matches?

:tease: FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!


PS We know PCS are far better anyway.

Far too much of it on every other site and post you can find on the internet. The XB1 just doesn't interest me and the games line up for the device does even less all the JRPGs come out on Sony's devices so that's where my monies going, the "Tales of" series is already confirmed for PS4 and I'm pretty sure the rest will follow suit as their niche fan base is all on the PS3.

I've got 2 weeks to get through 11-15 PS3 games :panic: then grab a copy of the next Assassins Creed on the 29th and see if it's redeemed it's self since AC3...

Although I own and love my xbox 360, I was more than prepared to go ps4 if it wowed me enough. But it doesn't in the slightest.

The xbox exclusives are better, the launch line up is better, kinect looks fantastic, and the tv integration is the dogs bollocks (no more ads for me, I'll quickly switch to a game using voice). It's got less graphical power, but I genuinely don't care. As long as the games are fun, and look and run better than current gen, I'll be happy.

Roll on Friday!

By the lack of posts I assume you're hooked then? Is it good?

Loving it!

Have both forza 5 and battlefield 4, and having a great time with each. Voice control is the dogs bollocks. Sat down with pizza the other night, and realised I had left the controller on the other side of the room. No worries, in 10 seconds I had started a film on Netflix, and turned the tv volume up, purely with voice commands. So so good.

Haven't hooked tv up through it yet, but the uk doesn't have full integration until sometime in 2014, so that can wait.

It's a bit rough in places (the os), but it'll get patched and upgraded in time. The xbox 360 ended up a completely different beast from how it started.

I doubt I'll ever buy a new PC again. I am truly converted to consoles!

What a disgusting perverted attitude. In some parts of the country it would get your tarred and feathered then run out of town on a rail!

As we have this blast from the past time I just have to post here , that Bawsy had to get his wife to buy a PC just so
he could play UT4 with us again, and not break the above statement.

PC's for the win!
