I feel like people are starting to blow the "rape" out of proportion a little bit.
They're two different consoles targeting two different markets (PS3 going for the gamers, Xbox going for home entertainment). Quite a few people I know are chuffed with the idea of a One and good on them I guess. It's just that the Sony product suits me the most of the two and given that most of the features that Microsoft are pushing for most in the One either aren't available in Australia on launch or aren't even close to being relevant to my interests I'm not even going to bother thinking about buying one.
However it's still probably going to do very well, despite what the Sony fanboys (old AND new) think.
This, my god, this.
I am only interested in gaming so the PS4 suits me to a tee. If I wanted all the home entertainment stuff I'd lean toward the One.
