    Just watch the new TitanFall trailer on your 360. It will make your decision easy.
    If I didn't have my PC, TitanFall would make getting a PS4 more difficult. That game looks so damn good.

    Not having NBA Game Time app out of the box is a huge bummer for me. Hopefully they get it quickly.

    David looks great, but why does the jersey look wrong? Something with the size or spacing of Pacers, I think?

    Xbox One it is for me. I just like the Xbox and see no reason to switch.

    I'm still excited about how fast it is to switch back and forth from a paused game, to an app, or to TV. I'm going to love that. Now just give me my GD league pass app back, Microsoft!

    Am I correct that as long as both games are digitally bought/stored on my hard drive, I can actually quickly switch between multiple games? Like if I'm waiting in a team up lobby in 2K14 (assuming it has team up this year), I can hop over to, say, Dead Rising 3 to pass the time before the lobby starts the game, right?

    I'm so broke. I already paid for my PS4 months ago and I just paid for an Xbox One as well. I should have both at my door on day one. My wife is gonna divorce me...

    From what I've read the digital downloads are going to be taking an insane amount of hard drive space. Seemed lame I wanted to get away from buying discs

    PS4, Xbox One hard drives will only fit 12 full-sized games
    By Jacob Siegal
    Friday November 1, 2013, 3:50 PM


    It might be a good idea to go ahead and start planning out exactly how you are going to fill up your new console’s hard drive. Dave Thier from Forbes points out that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are each equipped with 500GB of internal storage, which is plenty to store dozens of current generation of games — but unfortunately for digital hoarders, launch games on PS4 and Xbox One will typically come in between 30 GB to 50GB in size.


    This leaves room for around 12 retail games downloaded to the console, and considering how common day-one digital releases have become, downloading full games from each respective console’s store is becoming a viable option for many gamers. It is worth keeping in mind that neither console is going to support external hard drives, although the PS4′s internal hard drive can be upgraded fairly easily.


    If anything, this is great news for brick-and-mortar game stores. Without easy access to every digital purchase, consumers will likely continue to pick up hard copies of their games, which they can pop in to their consoles and play immediately without having to reinstall a 40GB file. Once Sony and Microsoft find a way to effectively implement cloud streaming on their consoles, this could be a non-issue. But for now, it’s a good idea to plan ahead.

    The above is why, as long as they offer physical copies of games and movies, that's the product I'm spending my money on. Eventually there won't be a choice, but as long as there is...

    That's about what I expected, to be honest. I knew both consoles had BD drives this generation, and a single layer BD holds 25GB, a dual layer 50GB. I figured they would be at least around 25GB in size. Now I'll assume 50GB.

    I was only wanting to have up to maybe 6 or so games installed at a time, and at launch it will only be 2 or 3, so that won't really hurt me, I don't think. I've been playing on a 360 that only had 20GB of total memory up to now, so this will seem like tons and tons of room to me.

    If the hard drive is literally 500GB, that means there is likely about 450GB actually available, less whatever space the default operating system and apps take up, so it'll be tight but I think I can still have about 5 to 7 games installed at once.

    The way I game, that'll be plenty, I think. I'll keep whatever is hot at the time installed, and when I know I've reached a stopping point with something, it'll be first up to be deleted when something new comes along. I'll rotate games out.

    It was going to be that way. When so many people freak out about their new policies, the changes they made to appease those people ended up making it so that you'll have to have the disk in again, I believe.

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/11/...sizes-revealed

    Install sizes for Xbox One launch titles have been revealed after a consumer managed to get hold of a console early thanks to a shipping error by Target.

    According to Moonlightswami (via NeoGAF), all games will require between 246 MB and 43 GB of storage space to install. This isn't in reference to digital downloads either - all Xbox One titles will require an install.

    Seeing as the Xbox One comes with an internal hard drive size of 500 GB, it looks like you'll need to get into the habit of deleting old games once you're done with them, at least until the promised external hard drive support is added.


    The install sizes he's reporting are as follows:

    Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag – 20GB
    Battlefield 4 – 33GB
    Call of Duty: Ghosts – 39GB
    Dead Rising 3 – 19GB
    FIFA 14 – 8GB
    Fighter Within – 9.2GB
    Forza Motorsport 5 – 31GB
    Just Dance 2014 – 22GB
    Killer Instinct – 3.4GB
    Lococyle – 13GB
    Madden NFL 25 – 12GB
    NBA 2K14 – 43GB
    NBA Live 14 – 9GB
    Powerstar Golf – 3.9GB
    Ryse: Son of Rome – 34GB
    Skylanders: Swap Force – 15GB
    Xbox Fitness – 246MB
    Zoo Tycoon – 2.6GB
    Zumba World Party – 24GB
    Some games can apparently be played midway through the install process and, as you'd expect, installation is fairly speedy.

    Is there any game that is hyped coming out at release that makes it worth it for me to get an XB1 then and not just wait for Titanfall?
