Hello and greetings fellow otaku,
Well it looks like the console wars are about to heat up again. Microsoft and Sony will be going head to head with there new consoles which will be released on November 30th (Xbox 1) and December 31st (PS4) respectively.
So what is the big deal with the two, well the main thing is how you can share games between the two systems. On one end, Sony and the PS4 will allow you to share games with your friends with the physical disc and you can even play used games from your PS3, PS Vita and PlayStation Network without any disruptions what so ever. Microsoft on the other hand has you locked with a DRM system in which you buy the game and have it digitally stored on the hard drive so if you want to play games with your friends, you will need to take the Xbox 1 with you and have the Kinect connected in order to play. A major inconvenience in my opinion, I want to play my games anywhere I want without being bogged down carrying my system.
Thus what is the moral of the story, SONY wins and Microsoft bites the dust. I feel that Sony is doing the right thing by allowing you to play all your games from all of your PlayStation devices without any hassle, and Microsoft, well I just don’t know what to say.
I won’t dive into this any further since all the major news outlets have pretty much covered the basics, but come this holiday season, I predict that Sony will be the big winner with the PS4. HANDS DOWN. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
