some devices cripple 1080p via component, some tv don't support 1080p via component.

Hollywood didn't want you to be able to connect an analogue output @ 1080p to a recording device. Theres no reason why gaming has to be crippled over component though

Well My 17yr old has been pointing towards the PS4, saying the only difference between the two consoles really is the konect, which seems to add another 100 quid, he's always been on xbox, but says he would rather have the PS4 for some reason. Guess who pays ?

Just keep an eye on the mainstream media for an official update... a lot of it will just be hot air and trolling at the moment so I wouldn't worry too much.

I think the same company builds both.

Not a direct comparision but Many Supermarket ready meals are made in the same factory here in the UK but with different qc standards depending on which Super Market the meal is destined for.

I get that. There's a few big companies that produce electronics in China. The days of companies like Apple, Microsoft etc producing their own kit are long gone.

I guess the PS3 was the last of the Sony produced consoles.

Cool

I think it will turn out that the Xbox one has been around for about 6 months where as the ps4 was rushed to get it out first . My reasons for this are that the development kits have been out 9 months for Xbox and that is basically a production machine and the only confirmed change in the Xbox one was a clock speed increase. Which if you had a pc would be a slight overclock in the bios.
There was no pictures of the ps4 even at the launch and only a distant view of one at e3 and that wasn't a working model just something tho show how it would look .
I still stand by what I said that the ps4 will be like the original 360 but still believe that that it will work out. And that Ms cloud power will be the way to go due to the fact I use a fluffy white cloud at work and it makes even the shoddiest pc look like a silk purse so I think that Ms have stolen a march here.

I see the PSN network bottlenecked itself at the weekend...now we never saw that coming! Hell that's only the US!...god help it when the rest of the world get their mits on it.

To add to Andy's post. At Eurogamer in September I did think it was odd that all the multiplatform titles were using Xbox Ones to showcase their game. FIFA, COD, BF4 all were using Xbox Ones.

You get what you pay for. This is why I don't mind £4 a month to play online.

Now what worries me is that, as you say, that was only the US. With the XB1 being a worldwide launch, and quite a few people downloading complete games, will there servers (even with all the new ones) be able to cope on Day One? I can see me setting the download Friday night, and getting up Saturday morning to find 1 out of 35GB downloaded.

Big services like XBL, YouTube, Netflix tend to cache data reasonably locally so it'll be coming from the UK at least, perhaps from your ISP. Hundreds of thousands of people all downloading 35Gb of Forza 5 from the US would batter the Internet into submission!

With a bit of luck they've started distributing the content ready...

Cool

New Ms datacentre in Ireland went live 2 weeks ago for cloud use.
Others are coming online around the world as well.
Hopefully xb1 is using a few of them.

MS have made big claims about their servers and cloud so if they can't handle the traffic the bitching levels are gonna be high... I'd hope they've got it covered though, they're light years ahead of Sony when it comes to online.

I'm confident the MS Cloud will be fine. Enterprise IT is their core business.
