PS4 Vs Xbox One – Who won? The Fans

Xbox 360 E3 Media Briefing

After a long and eventful day, day 0 of E3 2015 has come to a close. Although there were a lot of remarkable releases and information such as Fallout 4 gameplay or the Shenmue III kickstarter reaching $1,000,000 in just 3 hours, the time old rivalry ensued between Microsoft and Sony. While many people are battling over who won, Xbox One or PS4, I feel that despite the console fan differences, all the fans won. Fans on both sides were with met extraordinary news which have both communities hyped beyond belief. So lets run down the top news from both sides.

Xbox One

  • Gears of War 4 announcement
  • A closer look at Halo 5
  • A closer look at Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Forza Motorsport 6 gameplay trailer
  • Xbox One backwards compatibility
  • Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller
  • HoloLens goggle demo with Minecraft

PS4

  • Final Fantasy 7 remake
  • Reveal of a new IP: Guerrilla’s Horizon: Zero Dawn
  • A new Hitman title
  • Demo gameplay of No Man’s Sky
  • Gameplay footage of Uncharted 4: A Thieves End
  • First ever game footage of Last Guardian
  • The announcement of a new partnership between Sony and Activision
  • A look into Call of Duty: Black ops 3 on PS4 as well as early access to DLC before Xbox One

With all of this information being released on the same day, both the Xbox One and PS4 communities are buzzing with excitement. Regardless of whether you are a Xbox One owner or a PS4 owner, you should be ecstatic at all of this news. It seems to me that while each console was trying to out do the other, they didn’t forget the importance of the experience the player will receive which led to a day of epic proportions and soon a life time of joy and excitement as both consoles enjoy what was revealed today. While both consoles did their best to out shine the other, I feel that it is the fans who walk away as winners at the end of day 0 of E3 2015. Continue to check back here at ThisGenGaming for more E3 2015 updates and news throughout the week.

      “WE WILL NOT CHARGE YOU, TO PLAY GAMES YOU ALREADY OWN”! That was the moment M$ won E3!!!

      • Revolver Ocelot

        “btw please preorder Gears of War and Rare Replay :^)”

        Hilarious scenes.

  • Kevin Burton

    I think Microsoft had the better showing, I mean come on backwards compatibility .. Who seen that comming.
    Games looked great on both platforms… Great to be a gamer

    • latinalover

      so far from every gaming website i seen…..they think sony won

      • BoyBigEyes

        Sony win with no doubt!

      • Stereotypical_White_Fella

        how? Cod? Xbox Won.

      • Edonus

        That would be the media bias….. Also known as the people that keep drugging and raping you.
        We have been trying to y’all stay away from the per rts and not take their candy but y’all keep getting and they rape van. If you can’t see for yourself with your own eyes and see MS had a way better showing and need some one else to tell you what you saw they already have have to pump up full of drugs to no your real name.

        You can be a fan, that’s fine….. But to live in complete denial is a sad existence. The gaming media has done doing that to lots of gamers this gen…. And it’s sad.

        • Jenovo

          If by media bias you mean “reality,” then fine. X1 fanboys need to wake up.

          • Edonus

            You wouldnt know REALITY if it gave you an 8 year old game and didnt update the graphics…… or passed a kickstarter off as an exclusive game.

    • Jenovo

      Not a single console in history was sold because of “backwards compatibility.” It’s funny how xbox titled their conference”play forward,” and the thing that gets all the fanboys excited is being able to play 5 year old games lol -not to mention 2 tired franchises, one of which (gears) that shouldn’t even still exist.

      • Kevin Burton

        Not entirely true… The original PS3 marketed and sold as backwards compatible…
        You should probably know your facts, before posting them.
        Yesterday it was one of them popular gaming sites that posted a article, Microsoft wins e3 on day 1
        So obviously there are lots of pele who feel the same way, just think taking the 360 library, the xbox one library and then stream it to a tablet or a PC. I think that alone is a win for everyone.

  • Ben Jam In

    Xbox

    Sony was mostly timed exclusive whereas xbox was mostly exclusives coming out this year.

    like sony showed, battlefront, batman, assasins, and cod. all also on xbox one (even FF7 is a timed exclusive)

    • BoyBigEyes

      Horizon, The Last Guardian, Uncharted 4, Shemmune 3, Street Fighter V…. hmm i didn’t know they would come for XBone. Are they like RoTR? I think not. And if MS just shows games for 2015 should get you worried, not happy! What you will play in 2016?

      • Stereotypical_White_Fella

        Horizon, nice Last Guardian? Never heard of it. Tomb Raider> Uncharted. Shemmune? wtf, another japfag game? People still play fighter games? Huh …Xbox was better

        • Amir Hamzah

          you ever heard of ico and shadow of the colossus?

          • Stereotypical_White_Fella

            no

          • Amir Hamzah

            Look them up. Really groundbreaking games at the time.

        • kiki

          haahahahaahaahahaha Never heard of last guardian? It’s being talked so much the last years it was expected as half life 3 and the internet exploded when it got a gameplay. Tomb raider better of uncharted? That’s why tomb raider won so many GOTY’s… Oh, wait. That’s uncharted sorry. And for shenmue I wont even comment, the fastest raising fundraiser in history. Got 2 million dollars in 4 hours.

        • BoyBigEyes

          lol You want to convince yourself that your XBox one games are better, did you? Good luck with that! With 343 to not have the same talent as Bungie have, like we saw with Halo 4. And TR to just be a clone of Uncharted. Yes, i saw the gameplay and are there a lots of ideias taken of uncharted series! ^_^

          • Jake Connell

            Actually the Bungie developers who worked on Halo originally still work on it at 343. Even the cofounder works for 343. The people who have been working on Halo have always been working on it. Check your facts first. The smaller part of Bungie who didn’t want to work on Halo anymore created Destiny but the larger group separated and joined 343. Also, I respect your opinion on what games you like but I personally enjoy the Xbox since my friends all own it and now my Xbox 360 games won’t lay to waste anymore. It’s a great time to be gamers.

          • BoyBigEyes

            Yes, i know! But, in evaluating the Halo 4, the developers that went for 343 are the worst ones!

        • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

          “japfag” huh? Your user name seems very fitting.

      • Im not worried what i will play in 2016, i mean i have 1 more year to think about that and between now and holiday 2016 theire still are 2 more Gamescom and 1 E3 shows.

        YOU should be worried what exclusives you play this year. Xbox showed mostly games that come out this year and they will show the games that come next year at Gamescom.

        • BoyBigEyes

          Hmmm, lets see: Until Dawn, tearaway unfolded, planetside2, Tomorow Children, let it die, draw to death, uncharted collection, Dragon Quest Heroes… no, i not worried! 🙂

          • Jason Andrew Hahn

            god damn your panties are bunched

    • Manoj Varughese

      Really?! Good luck with that.

    • Jenovo

      100% wrong. News flash: Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive, kiddo.

      All Microsoft did was wheel out the same old, tired franchises to keep them afloat – and honestly, Gears looked painfully generic – or perhaps you missed the forced applause at the end of that video?

      Nice try. Enjoy that VCR that’s losing in every single territory on earth – even after a dozen price drops. They keep including games to sell that underpowered mess – maybe they should include a PS4 in the next X1 bundle – it’ll fly off the shelves.

    • Revolver Ocelot

      Horizon is not timed.
      TLG is not timed.
      Dreams is not timed.

      Most Xbone reveals were also on PC.

      Expected megatons from MS. Very disappointing.

      • LunarNinja

        You do realize Microsoft develops the Windows platform, right?
        Cross platform multiplayer, exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10

        • Revolver Ocelot

          I do. Steam dominates PC gaming and as it stands only a few games qilll be cross-play/buy.

  • So why is this site calling out Hitman on sonys side and not the other 3. Party games they showed? They also forgot almost everything Xbox showed:

    ReCore
    Sea of Thieves
    Rare replay
    Fable Legends
    Gears of War Ultimate Edition

    are all Xbox One games and not 3. party games that are playable elswere…..

    • Iain Chambers

      Sea of Thieves, Fable legends and probably Dark souls 3 are also heading PC

      • Sea of Thieves is Xbox One exclusive

        Fable Legends also coming to PC and Dark Souls 3 is multiplat. I just said it because they are listing Hitman and stuff for Playstation.

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    Remove the cod posts from Playstation. Nobody is excited for cod. Xbox and PC won

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

    Xbox and PC (they’re bros now, together. Microsoft joined them with windows 10)

  • Edonus

    Xbox One took this one easy. I am sure the bias media will be out in full force with their rufies trying to drug the community in to believing Sony won and if that doesn’t work they will try to say Nintendo did it tomorrow.

    They have attacked the Xbox One too much and sold people to hard against it to now say…… We were wrong and the Xbox One is actually a great system.

    • kiki

      Are you on drugs? What games did xbox show? The SAME repeating games. Gears of war, halo, forza. Do you have anything else? A timed exclusive tomb raider? NICE. The last guardian, Horizon, Shenmue. That are the games GAMERS want.

      • That is right, i have a Xbox One and i want Last Guardian, Horizon, Shenmue and Uncharted. But this games come out 2016/17 and im here right NOW with my Xbox One, so Microsoft gave me the better Show with games i can play THIS year. But you are right, i will get a ps4 as soon as shenmue/last guardian drops.

      • Edonus

        Well Gears 4 looks amazing, Halo 5 looks amazing, Forza 6 looked amazing so thats a great start right there……. then Add in Fable Legends which also looked amazing, Gigantinc, That Pirate game from Rare, Tomb Raider looked as good if not better than what Sony showed for Uncharted 4. Add in Backward compatibility, the new Elite controller Fallout 4 MOD support just to name a few I personally loved Cuphead and Hololens.

        VS

        A Ps3 game with Ps3 launch graphics that they dusted off last week and couldnt even give a solid release date., Shenmue 3 isnt even a game its currently just a kickstarter. Horizon looked good but it aint F&^kin with HALO 5 in any kind of way.

        • kiki

          Obvious troll is obvious.

          • swin08

            Edonus hit it dead on. Ps4 is falling admit it. They won’t even be at gamescom.

          • kiki

            Thats why the ps4 is outselling the xbox one 2 to one. Ouch.

        • Jenovo

          Gears 4 looks amazing? lol WOW. So much generic.

          • Edonus

            Take it back to the barn pony. Gears 4 looks better than the The Order and the gameplay has always been top notch. The mechanics looked solid. The things that define the genre started at Gears so calling it generic is like insulting the first car using tires. Active reload is a Gears invention the tight close quarters drop into cover is Gears to name a few things. And it was a teaser…. so much more to come.

            Go back and play your garbage floaty Last of Us MP trash and your Uncharted floaty garbage. The MP for Uncharted is so bad they made a collection with out it and its fans didnt even care.

            The thing about Gears is that you play it….. not just watch it

      • joe

        Can you quit saying shenmue when the game has an optimistic release date of Dec 2017 and will be lucky to hit by then. How can you honestly praise sony for a game that won’t be around for 3 f’ING years?

    • Jenovo

      LOL why bother arguing with people like this. X1 fanboys will try anything to get under the skin of owners of the more popular and powerful console.

      • joe

        LOL. How do you know you’re losing the argument? When all you can say is fanboy. Sony owned the last two years. This year was all xbox. Biggest thing sony fans are touting are ff7, remake and not exclusive, shenmue, hardly more then a vaporware 2017 pipedream, some timed exclusives, and then yes, a couple decent looking big titles for sometime in 2016, no release dates given. No one’s saying sony suddenly sucks, but they did not have a good showing for what gamers want now, except for multiplatform titles.

      • Edonus

        Its not about getting under anyones skin. You cant talk to you brain f%$^@d clowns. I am in celebration of the Xbox One mode….. it just so happens you pions with your screwed @sse$ are all over the net keeping me from conversating with my X1 brothers in victory with your lie and slander campaigns and drug induced circle jerks about things I would piss on. Now move along so the real gamers can celebrate.

        Go to IGN….. they will rub you down and make you feel good.

  • Justin Plunton

    Don’t forget Xbox allowing games to be modded, i’m pretty sure Playstation will not be able to offer this, at the least as good as Microsoft with the Windows 10 integration. Sony seems very strong for games, that’s for sure but i think Xbox was the winner at the end of the day.

    P.S i own both consoles and always have owned both, so not biased at all.

    • Paul Flynn

      When you say Xbox allows games to be modded I assume you are referring to Fallout 4? If so then Playstation 4 will also have that, it’s not an exclusive. It was just announced at the Microsoft conference because of Microsoft’s relationship with Bethesda.

  • wolfgang

    PS4 win== horizon, shenmue3, ff7 remake, TLG

    but still nothing about tekken7 , gt7, and ff12 remake 🙁

    • Victor Villari

      shenmue is a kickstarter. What are you saying…? FF7 is timed exclusive, TLG looked terrible and is hyped up because it took 5 years too long to release it, and horizon doesnt come out until winter of 2016. S

  • Pna Araujo

      • Pna Araujo

        Foda-se, já disse que vou falar apenas na minha língua, se quiser ficar de mimimi se vire para falar português ahahah, xbox detonou na e3 2015

  • joe

    Sony won e3 all right. They won e3 2016. They had some cool looking games, but no reason to grab a ps4 until march 2016 or later. Ff7 mutiple love it. Street fighter mey, it’s been the same for 15 years. It’ll move consoles in Japan but not in na. Sony has a lot to look foward to, but why not announce the ps5 along with shenmue 3? Probably be a launch title for it.

  • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

    Sure we all won, but there was a clear winner and that was without question Sony. People can make all the excuse they want, gripe about when the games are coming or rather they are timed exclusives or not but E3 is about megatons and Sony clearly had more of those. Backwards compatibility is great for those who want to play old games on there new console, but that alone doesn’t even come close to an announcement like The Last Guardian or Horizon.

    • Victor Villari

      The Last Guardian is being celebrated solely because it was supposed to come out FIVE YEARS AGO. Gameplay looked awful, with graphics to match. Horizon, Uncharted, TLG, all 2016 games. You have nothing for 2015, while Microsoft not only has games coming out this year, but quantum break, scalebound, crackdown, sea of thieves, recore ALL set for 2016. Sony is absolutely fuc***.

      • kiki

        Gameplay looks awful along with graphics??? AHHAAHAHAHAA You obviously never palyed SotC or Ico because those two are one of the most iconic games in history of games.

      • Amir Hamzah

        Lol. This shows that xbox gamers are kids. They dont even know shenmue. Hahahhaha

    • john smith

      Delirious PS fanboy. You have an issue it seems with old games but you boast about The Last Guardian? That game was announced at E3 8 years ago and looks like a PS3 game not a PS4 game! Hypocrite much? As for Horizon, Halo 5 beats that alone! smh.

  • swin08

    Xbox
    sony’s line up is pitiful as side from uncharted and horizon which look great! TLG or the last generation which showed in its graphics… doesn’t look fun at all. FF7 will be out on xbox so who cares. Shenmue is a frigging kickstarter campaign and you got excited over it XD the game isn’t even being produced yet and that stole the show. It’s sad that you all are in this much denial. Halo 5 looks great as does TR, Gears, Forza, Fable (looks good cuz it’s free to play) and not to mention games that weren’t there such as phantom dust, crackdown, scalebound, quantum break these will be at gamescom which sony won’t even be attending because of how pitiful their line up is. There is so much such as BC, the new controller, mods for fallout, and the fact you are excited over street fighter 5.

    • Victor Villari

      Nailed it man. Microsoft showed off an incredible lineup for this year, while still awaiting to announce new IP’s AND has Scalebound, Crackdown and Quantum Break waiting. Add in Sea of Thieves, Recore, etc… Sony got blown out of the water.

    • kiki

      What did xbox show? Only old IP-s and some indie like games. Horizon is the best looking game of the show with uncharted. Actually showing gameplay. Shenmue is one of the most expected games and that 2 mills for kickstarter is now 3 mills and its getting more and more just so sony can see if there is interest for the game. They are FUNDING IT. They acknowledged that yesterday.

      Also saying tlg showed last generation is HILARIOUS. The game looks aboslutely amazing, just look at the views and likes on youtube and the impression from RESPECTED media ( not internet trolls ). 😉

  • Iain Chambers

    PC won it has the best of both worlds from Shemmune 3, Street Fighter V to Gears of war and sea of thieves. PC has the most exclusives and apart from some first party titles like Uncharted and halo get almost everything else PC wins E3 2015!

    • Iain Chambers

      And Killer Instinct

  • Revolver Ocelot

    Anyone who thinks MS’ piss-weak offering of retreads, remasters and half-assed emulation was any good needs their head checking.

  • john smith

    Hey your list is missing a few big E3 exclusives for the XBO which appears to be dishonest. You missed 4 big exclusive games and 2 where newly announced IP’s!

    Personally, I think MS won it and by a significant margin. No multiplatform deceptions, no fanboy delirium over outdated niche games just solid AAA exclusives. Big exclusives that XBO owners will see in 2015 as well as 2016.

    What you missed:

    ReCore
    Sea of Thieves
    Rare Collection
    Fable Legends

    Xbox clearly won.
    If you want to challenge my reasoning, it’s simple…
    “Sony had the best exclusives!”
    Xbox has five exclusives coming out this year alone. That and Sony’s show was full of multiplatform games.
    “Sony listens to their fans!”
    And if MS didn’t, we wouldn’t have backwards compatibility now would we?.
    “Sony has Horizon, a PS exclusive! New IP!”
    Cool, friend, we have ReCore to look foward to. A game with the team of Metroid Prime. We also have Sea of Theives, a new Rare game to look foward to as well. That’s two IP’s for one show.

    All of this taken into consideration, I’m going to close with this…
    No, stupid. You can’t win E3 with a remake and a kickstarter. It is extremely pitiful that they even advertized a kickstarter at E3. Come on, people!
