    Seems a little unfair to include the X1, frankly.

    I guess you could argue that Xbox One is more aimed towards gamers since if you don't play games in general, you are not going to get much use out of XBox one at all, since the rest of the services are free to access everywhere else.

    So it seems that Xbox one with Silver membership is comparable to PS2 with online store, and blu-ray drive. Functionality wise.

    Almost everyone will say: buy console that has games that you want, and those who say otherwise are ignorant.

    The chart shows which features are behind a paywall and which aren't.

    It does when consoles and pc are different platforms. On one hand you have a platform that constantly evolve on the hw side and on the other you have a platform which remains the same for a lenghty time cycle.

    You want to compare features of 2 consoles that have very similar architecture to a system that is In a complete different ball park. The console makers can control sets of features because ONE company makes all the consoles to same specs and therefore can dictate how it will operate accross the board. If every single pc manufacturer had different ways to access the net, it would be a clusterfuck!!! That's not even considering custom builds, who takes control of thr features when you have intel/amd/nvidia solutions alk mixed up? Who takes control of the features, mb/gpu/cpu/hdd/ram etc makers?

    Get my point?

    Of course there is always one of the "masterace" coming in a CONSOLE VS CONSOLE section/thread to speak of how their solution is superior to all... As if in a very weird wau they had to compensate for small e-pens or something!

    Might as well go in a F-350 vs Dodge 3500 thread to talk about how your smart has better gaz milleage!

    So we can't compare online functionality and OS-provided and application services of PC to consoles because PC's online functionality and services are constantly evolving unlike consoles? I don't know if you know this, but Microsoft and Sony can update the software of their consoles. It's not a hardware issue.

    We could but.... What's the title of this thread and the comparison about?

    I'm very aware that software can lock/unlock/add/remove features and functionalities. I am also very capable of reading a thread title and deduct the original intent of the OP.

    Also, I wasnt aware PC had a paywall unlike MS and SONY

    Why does PC need a pay wall to be in this comparison? I was initially just making a joke post about bringing in PC into the comparison, but realistically, there would be nothing wrong with bring PC into the comparison. There is no oranges and apples to work with here.

    Can the PC arguing stop? This is a thread about PS4 and Xbox One. Discuss that. Otherwise, it's just derailing the actual topic.

    PC shouldn't really fit in the comparison in my opinion because PC is an open machine. Its not a closed environment owned by any company so you will always have free services from one provider or another.

    Steam on the other hand CAN be compared since it is a closed environment providing online services, owned by a company that happens to run on PC. Only this way it is apples to apples when you pick particular services and not PC gaming in general because that has too many variables

    You are taking this too seriously. It's these kinds of posts that deter me from posting here. People here tend to be way too overly sensitive at times.

    The PC argument seems a bit irrelevant as thats not really the point of the 'chart'. I don't really see what that accomplishes if someone wants a dedicated home, gaming console.

    The Wii U would've been a much more appropriate device to make a proposal to add.

    So you have to pay to use XBone's Internet Explorer. Fuck that.

    Basically you pay for the Gold subscription for online play, and those aspects. Gold also has all these other "features" you can use. It's not like you're paying to use the browser. You're paying for the whole enchilada.

    If SONY supports PlayTV again with the PS4 it will make it an actual TV DVR and not just a psudo one like the Xbox.
