Montenegro's Vote: E3 Day 1 - Microsoft or Sony

The battle of the new generation consoles continues, there were some big blows dealt yesterday but I am pretty sure one console stood tall where the other one missed a pretty important detail.

Microsoft delivered in games, games and more games.  They opened up with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain which had stellar graphics and the audience pretty much enjoyed it.  Then the annoucment for the 360, a new slick xbox 360 that looks pretty similar to the Xbox One. Then the list of Xbox One exclusives just kept on coming, Ryse: Son of Rome, Killer Instinct, Sunset Overdrive, Forza Motorsport 5, Quantum Break, Dead Rising 3, a glimpse of a new Halo game and my personal favorite Titanfall.  They also showed some sexy game play from Battlefield 4.  For those who are already leaning towards the Xbox One, pretty much the exclusives sold you in.  As much as the trailers were awesome to watch, Microsoft did not say anything about the used games issue and offline gaming.  That was a huge ball to drop, tisk tisk tisk.  Oh yeah what about that $499 price tag?  How do you guys feel about that?

As for Sony, the beginning of the press conference was a bit slow, they talked about the PS Vita with a not so awesome line up of games coming out.  They then gave the PS3 some love bringing up The Last Of Us, Puppeteer, Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, Gran Turismo 6 and Batman: Arkham Origins.  To top the PS3 news, there was a bundle announced that includes a copy of Grand Theft Auto 5.  Sony afterwards rolled out the red carpet and unveiled the Playstation 4:



After that the fun began, they showed off a new Playstation exclusive The Order: 1886.  Then some new trailers for Killzone: Shawdow Fall, Driveclub, Infamous: Second Son and Knack.  Those Indie games showed off what they have going on.  Then Diablo 3, Final Fantasy XIII, Kingdom Hearts 3, NBA 2K14, Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag and Elder Scrolls Online also helped light up the Sony stage.  Then Sony laid it on us, no restrictions on used games, offline gaming is a-go, and no 24 hour authentication. Online gaming is not free on the PS4 though, you must have Playstation Plus.  Sony gave us some Destiny game play and  let us know there will be exclusive content only for the PS4.  Then the $399 price tag, does that make the PS4 cheap, or is the price perfect?

My vote goes to, drum roll please *drumming*.......... The Playstation 4!  They have awesome games coming out, good exclusives, we know what is the deal with used games and offline gaming and the price tag seems reasonable.  Do you agree or disagree?  Let me know how you feel.

Ms. Montenegro

  1. My vote is clearly for the PS4. I think that they price is fitting seeing as all that it has going on. Did they give a price for how much online play will cost? It sucks that it isn't free anymore, but I would not mind paying a low fee for it.

    Playstation Plus is $10 for a one month subscription, $17.99 for three months and $49.99 for a year. No clue if the prices will be changing for the PS4.

  3. That's actually not too bad. I can see myself buying the one year of Playstation Plus. Hopefully the pricing wont increase. So far it looks like the PS4 is shaping up to be the better of the two big next gen systems.

  4. My vote is on PS4 .... well worth the price ... and I'm okay with them charging a fee to pay online ... 49.99 a year isn't that bad ... can't wait to get destiny, beyond two souls, and kingdom hearts 3~! <3

    I'm so disappointed in what microsoft had to offer since I really like the 360 and was hoping for something better than the crap they gave us ... I mean some of the games were good but it still wouldn't make me buy the new system~ ;-;
