Use the native mail app, it's not bad I have it on my Xperia T, I just use gmail for new things now rather than my hotmail, how are you finding the Z?

The more power debate is always a hollow one on consoles, the Xbox will always have the slight advantage as games developed for the PC will port to the Xbox better than anything else, the only 'power' advantage that the PS4 has is in the RAM used and so i don't think will come in to play, i reckon that Microsoft offers the best overall package in respect to online services, multimedia services and customer service in my past experience.


Not this time round. Both are using standard x86 PC hardware, both have 8 amd jaguar cpu cores, both have the amd gcn gpu architecture in their apus. The ps4 is using 16 gcn cores against the 12 found in the xb1 and as you have mentioned the ps4 has gddr5 vs ddr3 memory.

The ps4 has more powerful hardware and there will be no limitations on being able to use it this time.

Devs have already said that the ps4 has the hardware processing edge and this time with multiplatform games if we see any difference it should be the opposite with the ps4 running better than xb1, especially given the huge memory overhead requirements of the xb1 triple os as well.

That still doesn't alter the fact that games will be developed on windows pc's and the xb will get first refusal, I doubt major developers will make ps4 versions to take this power in hand, exclusives will be better if time is spent on them by devs, doesn't alter the fact that I prefer the Xbox eco system and software that is onboard.

I only really use my PS3 for Blu-ray nowadays anyway.

My gaming laptop beats all consoles hands down, end of !

 

I only used my PS3 for blu-rays too. I then sold it and bought a proper blu-ray player.

 

 

 

 

To be honest, I don't know about buying another games console. I was thinking about the Xbox One this week. It does look like a good console. I opted over PS4 because of the limitations on the Xbox One. But now they've released more news about it, I decided that I would think more about the Xbox.

 

I'm just not sure about wasting my money on another console when I can just buy a desktop and upgrade that if and when I need to.

Although I have my own pc upstairs in my bedroom (with no internet) I don't use it much. I have only used it for processing photos from my camera. And I haven't used my camera much since I went to Scotland for a weeks holiday 5 weeks ago.

 

Decisions... decisions...

 

 

Also I have no idea about pc's. I do know that I would want something to run Photoshop (maybe the newest version) together with maybe Lightroom. Also a few simulators (Flight Sim, Euro Truck Simulator and maybe Sim City)....

 

I would consider using http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/

Go to scan.co.uk for the best prices in my experience you would only need an i3 with a decent GPU for 2 of those games anyway, if it's FSX your trying to play I can't decide between an i3 or in, videos of flight sim on a core i3 2120/3220 look to be acceptable as well as keeping the price down, it's a lot to think think about when considering a pc for gaming, in my opinion you can game to console quality for under 550 quid while 650 will near enough max any game of the market.

News flash, my xbox one is going back to amazon for refund, I have various issues, one the fan bearing is rattling all over the show, none of the games blew me away and the app selection is absolute rubbish, my 360 will better serve me for now, perhaps invest in a mac mini for now, I have to admit it was nothing like what I thought it would be. In a word disappointed, that something like this only lasted 7 days. Bad . bad . bad.

Xbox what?

 

Sorry I can't hear you over the awesomeness of my PS4. j/k.

 

No in all seriousness, I have felt next-gen is a bit of an anti-climax. It doesn't help that I am buying all multi-plats on PC, so it leaves me with little to buy on my PS4. Knack is better than expected, but my main reason for getting the PS4 was Killzone, but the save system is atrocious, I lost over an hours progress over the weekend due to the way it (doesn't) save, so it has put me off playing it.

 

I even took Friday off work for the PS4, and over the weekend, I must have put more hours into my PC than PS4.

 

PC is not all sunshine and rainbows though, ACBF is such an unstable game on PC at the moment. It is so much fun when it works, but keeps flippin' crashing!

 

I think 2014 is going to be the year of the next gen console, I can't wait for Infamous and Destiny. Watch Dogs, Ill be getting on PC anyway though (hurrah another buggy PC launch to look forward to).

I am loving my Xbox One. It depends what games you have? You can't say that Forza and Ryse don't look brilliant. They look great! As for the apps, its like a nice wine, it will get better with age. No issues with mine what so ever, great purchase in my opinion. Really happy with it.

It's the same old though I wouldn't have minded so much if I hadn't had so many issues with my 360 back in the day something they know I contacted them and to replace it I required a credit card (I don't believe I them, I spend what I have) and an account hold of 600 which is more than the console, the games aren't a wow to me to be honest plus a lot of launch promises aren't there so generally I find it pointless for now perhaps when a slim version comes I would consider it. For now it's either a mac mini alienware x51 or vaio all in one for me jacks of all trades and masters of none, I genuinely think I have watched more tv since the xbox one came and not on it like they would like to think.

Thought I might give you an update.

 

I cancelled my order from the PS4 to the Xbone. But then cancelled that and ordered a PC.

 

My specs:

PCS TRAIL-BREAKER 7206B

Intel i5-4670 (3.4GHz) 6MB Cache ASUS® Z87M-PLUS 8GB KINGSTON HYPER-X GENESIS Sapphire 3GB AMD RADEON™ R9 280X
1TB WD CAVIAR BLACK WD1002FAEX INTERNAL 52 IN 1 CARD READER CORSAIR 550W VS SERIES™ Super Quiet 22dBA Triple Copper Heatpipe Intel CPU Cooler
AOC 21.5" WIDESCREEN LED TFT Monitor
Total cost of £985
 

I booked the November 22nd off a couple of months ago for the release of the Xbox, so that I could go to my mates house and take a look at it. I went to his house and amazed by the graphics. Even so, I'm glad I bought a PC of my own.

 

Assassin's Creed Black Flag looks amazing!

Tomb Raider isn't too bad

Euro Truck Simulator 2 looks quite good too

 

I have all games on maxed-out GPU settings!
