If the PS4 was more expensive than the Xbox One, would you still buy it?

64 replies 648 views Edited Dec 8, 2013

Is $100 difference the only reason to buy PS4? If PS4 was more expensive than Xbox One, would you still buy it? Does the lesser price tag of $399 for PS4 is the only reason you won't buy Xbox One which wears a price tag of $499.

I would have still bought a PS4. Going into this next gen, I wanted to buy a gaming console, not a cable box that also plays games.

there are more than 1 reason why people go with PS4

 

price was definitely a factor, as SONY themselves deliberately cut their price just after MICROSOFT's presentation to lure in potential customers on the fence

 

i came from xbox 360 last gen as i believed that was the console to be on when it comes to ONLINE games.  i still think xbox offers more stable and secure online (but PS+ offers more value with all the GOOD free games, not the OLD, UNWANTED games microsoft gives out)

 

i basically missed out on MANY games i wanted to play by being with xbox

 

mostly the RPGs and games from quantic dreams, heavy rain and beyond

 

so by coming over to PS4 this gen, im hoping that i get to play more RPGs

 

and i was relying on GAIKAI to make backward compat available (but im having my doubts)

 

another factor was the system reliability.  I went through 3 xboxs.  With my PS4, it runs solid so far, knock on wood

 

 

 

however, im still disappointed in the lack of features on PS4.  dashboard looks very deserted.  no youtube.  and all the goodies the PS3 users are getting with PS+, PS4 users are missing out

 

i know things will improve from this point forward but it's nothing like "GREATNESS AWAITS"

 

 

 

when i play my PS4, it just feels like another game.  it doesnt feel next gen to me yet.

I'm with MLPixler, it's already very apparent that ps4 is better suited for playing games. I also grabbed the camera and a year of psplus for the same price as the crapbox

Price had nothing to do with my decision.

I run both consoles, but PS has always been my primary. In no hurry for the XBone but I will end up with one.

Most of us purchased PS3's, remember?

Probably would have gotten the One... maybe. Would have at least been more tempted, since I had a 360 already.

BUT, I'm such a baseball addict, MLB The Show may have very well been the reason I got a PS4. Glad with my decision so far.
