    Very surprised by a clean sweep to be honest but it looks like Sony have completely turned things around on Microsoft and fair play to them!

    But it's the EYE GEE EN "people's choice" awards. It's not that PS4 is or isn't, though a total clean sweep in the States when the X1 outsold the PS4 in the States is a little weird. It's that IGN will stuff the ballot box to serve this year's editorial.

    It's almost as if they have branches all around like Australia and the UK and an international audience on YouTube where this was pimped.

    Here are the numbers if anyone is unable to see the video.

    Controller:
    PS4 68%
    XB1 32%

    Hardware:
    PS4 71%
    XB1 29%

    Games:
    PS4 59%
    XB1 41%

    System OS:
    PS4 59%
    XB1 41%

    Online:
    PS4 62%
    XB1 38%

    Overall:
    PS4 68%
    XB1 32%

    I have to say I'm pretty shocked at this because I expected a few of the categories to be much closer. Namely, the Controller, Games, System OS and Overall.

    The controller is really more about preference and should be split. Both systems launched with a couple of good exclusive games and have a good looking 2014 lineup. The System OS is another category that I expected to be a matter or preference with no clear winner. Last, Overall I expected to be closer based on the other categories that I mentioned being closer than they were.

    What I would really like to see if it were possible, is a poll like this from people that own both consoles. That would eliminate the fanboys scueing the results and provide a much better measure of what the preferred console is.

    As far as controllee goes..I $#@!in love the new pad. . I have large hands so to me, I can really get a grip on the pad, without my thumbs slippin off the sticks. Xbone one pad I have never liked..period. I have used it however with dead rising 3 and I have no issues with its functionality..I just don't like the pad itself.

    Edit: $#@!in hell...there's alot of 'pad' in there. My Bad..

    Yeah I love the new pad lol. They redesigned it perfectly imo. Just wish there was more support for the touch pad. I really like how it has been used in the games that support it.

    the only thing that surprises me about the above, is how well MS have done considering all the hate they get.

    currently there is a games drought. Since there are not many games right now, the touchpad can't be used to it's potential, so what we are seeing currently is a drought. This has nothing to do with the touchpad since a drought is currently here. I'm 100% sure the touchpad will get used more and more as the boom in games happen.

    So, if I am reading you correctly, since there is a games drought right now, your saying the touchpad is underused because of that?

    Agreed. And as a big racing game fan I'm a little annoyed that PS4 doesn't have one good racing game and Drive Club has gone completely dark. If that game gets cancelled then I may as a racing game fan have to do something drastic. lol
