Sony Hammers Xbox Over Price, Used Games
At a coming-out party for its upcoming PlayStation 4 console, Sony leveled its guns at rival Microsoft’s Xbox One device and fired until the chambers were empty.
During a press event Monday night at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Sony hammered home key points about its new gaming system: Sharing games will be free. If people want to sell used games, that’s fine. And a near-constant Internet connection, meant to monitor game usage, won’t be required.
In other words, the PS4 will do many things the new XBox apparently cannot. Oh, and the PlayStation 4 will sell for $399 — $100 less than the Xbox One. Both consoles are expected this fall in time for the holiday shopping season, setting up a battle for the hearts, minds and wallets of the gaming community.
Who, in their right mind, would buy an X-Box One over a PS 4 with all their DRM and intrusion into the selling of games you’ve purchased. AND the PS4 is cheaper…. guess that happens when a company is too big to notice it’s fucking up big time.
