With the new policies Sony are adding, I'm surprised PS4 has fans.

I don't get why Gates needs more money anyway...
Um, gates is:

1) Not the CEO of Microsoft anymore
and
2) Not the head of the XBOX division

Don't slander Bill Gates, he is LITERALLY the biggest philanthropist to ever live.

Because people want to keep up with the Jones, even if it means buying stuff they don't really like or care for. Heck, if the next Xbox was made of pizza boxes and barb wire, people would be angry at its lack of features and yet still be pressured into buying it.

No, he isn't. There have been bigger philanthropists.

I think it was Forbes that said he was number 1 by 10 billion, another site I just looked up said he was second to Buffet. In the end, it doesn't even matter. He is still kicking ass.

Right off the top of my head, I know that Andrew Carnegie had much deeper pockets as a philanthropist; he donated ~$445 million of his wealth. Adjusting for inflation, that would be about 5.8 billion dollars in today's world.

Rockefeller had even more money than Carnegie. J.P Morgan may have had more invested into things. Those times were ridiculous XD

Here is why I hate it.

1) I don't have an internet connection, and won't have one when I will be in college.
2) I thrive off the used game market. I'm always tight on cash and every penny counts when you have bills to pay so I usually wait to buy games.

In other words, I would have to invest a lot of money just to play a console, costing a chunk of money I might add, just for fun every now and then. My entertainment shouldn't be asking me for demands.

Of course, if you have no bills to pay, and you don't have to worry about an online connection or any of that, sure, its great. In other words, its great for an audience that still lives with their parents who buy most of their stuff.
This.

The Xbox One has basically just targeted this overpriced console to 13 year old kids who don't have to pay out expenses like rent or bills, who don't have to buy consoles and games for themselves.

If you are around the age of 13 then this is perfect for you, as long as your parents can fork-out 500 pounds and 50 extra pounds per game, on top of electricity, Xbox Live Memberships, and internet bills. Even when I was younger my parents couldn't have afforded this.

Target Market: Little, rich boys/ girls.

I have to be honest here, im the Nintendo fan girl who screams at everything that they announce but im still getting a ps4 because the x-box practically has most of the same games anyway but just costs so much more and plus I already own a wii u.


Anyone? No? just me...

At the end of the day ps4 is the better console.
I say it as I see it.
I don't lick anyone's behind to gain "respect" on this site.
You either like me or don't.


Always happy to help.

I'm not fighting a cause for the PS4, I know that you are having to pay 6 or 7 pounds a month, but Omega asked, "I Don't Understand Why So Many People Hate The Xbox One". And that's my thoughts on why. :)
