Slightly more telling poll:

UK tabloid poll

If you just want the results it's 79% PS4 to 21% xbox one - with 20725 votes cast as I write this.

Interesting to note afaik the UK is the only place 360 has beaten PS3.

You have that incorrect. US is the only region that 360 has outsold PS3. UK and Japan sales are greater for the PS3 than the 360.

PS3 has barely passed the 360 for Global sales totals. They are basically neck and neck at this point. And, 360 has been out a year longer.

Did mean to say UK only place outside NA but I'm still not so sure PS£ is dominant in the UK - remember UK isn't a REGION. Can find lots of things saying 360 is strong in the uk but struggling to find actual hard numbers for the PS3.

This quote from the head of SCEE in 2011 sums it up:

“Whether you approach the UK from the perspective of our momentum, or the perspective of the competitive landscape, for us the UK is more like US than continental Europe. If you look across the PAL territory, where typically we outsell our competitors by around 50 per cent on a weekly basis, it’s inverted in the UK.

Oh btw anyone else notice the huge emphasis on how it seems to want to spoon feed you what the whole xbox community is watching, listening too, playing etc? I'm sure M$ could never manipulate the "trending" films, games, music etc to promote a certain product if they paid enough - that would be borderline dishonest and they'd never do that!

Cable/Sat companies have already chimed in and said, WTF is MS talking about, they have no plans to allow game consoles to become black boxes for their services.

My guess - it's a simple IR blaster, HDMI in and custom TV guide.

Oh and I can press the button called "Guide" on my tv and get the TV still playing in a small window quicker than I can say "Xbox show the guide".

Would be rather ironic if the biggest users of Kinect 2 turned out to be the physically handicapped who can't press a button.

Oh and it seems all the TV crap is US only at launch. Meaning the system is even less appealing to the majority of the world - nobody wants to buy something that large chunks of it don't work where they live yet.

And for all the big talk of one media center? 500gb HDD and mandatory game installs doesn't leave much space for recording TV shows (which they didn't announce, or rewind, pause etc).

So other than showing an actual box, MS announced basically nothing Sony didn't, yet they were crowing and laughing at Sony for their "poor showing."

Staying classy as always: Microsoft.

They might as well have called it the Yawnbox where my interest is concerned. Oooh, Kinect is coming back!

Creston

TBH they showed less - Sony did show gameplay which was pretty much ENTIRELY lacking from the M$ presentation. So they both showed controllers, one showed games, one showed a box, one announced they'd made Siri for your TV.

For my money PS4 has won this round of the consoles wars just on the reveals and leaked tech specs. M$'s presentation smacked of desperation - if a player scores a goal you can instantly pull up your fantasy league and see how it affects your scores then skype your friends to rub it in their faces????????

Oh just been reading elsewhere - 3gb of the system RAM is reserved for the OS so the Xbox has 5gb usable. Reports on the PS4 are 0.5gb-1gb reserved so 7-7.5gb usable.

At least they named it right in terms of progression. Xbox 1 (original), Xbox 360 (big jump forward), Xbox One (step backwards from the competition).

Maybe they'll release a cheap version with only Wii U style specs and call it the Xbox Zero.

Hey Aliens? Star Trek is trying hard to make you look better:

This is graphics fail - no screenshot can make your ears bleed like Chris Pine's voice acting does

Based on the TF2 video the treadmill needs to be bigger - the guy is not taking full paces instead doing a little mincey run.

News Comments > Tomb Raider Sets Sales Record

Considering it had practically no tomb raiding and was instead a near direct rip off of Uncharted (which yes was a evolution of Tomb Raider)
3.4m is bloody good.

If they had just taken the core of the Uncharted "spectacle" and added a few puzzles or a tomb or two too raid it might have been a good game.

As it stands it's a VERY well presented 3rd person shooter with a couple of platformy bits which relies on using QTEs to turn cut-scenes into levels for the sake of padding.

After currency exchange it's $17.75 here in the UK. Not bought drinks or popcorn for years - just get the wife to take a big hand bag.
