You only get to ask for one, Father Christmas is facing cutbacks worse than the NHS :)

Ed, so you are Santa and giving us a choice of which present you'd like us to choose off you? You are a mighty generous one, Ed! :)

"Have yo seen the PS4 game sharing instruction video?"

Yes!

They're really pouring it on thick aren't they? :)

That's how much budget cuts have effected Santa - he's now been outsourced to my own gnominess. The elves have been downgraded to minimum wage field mice.
The cost of the Xbox One is too much for me, I will possibly buy one in a year or so when the price comes down a little. I am buying a PS3 any day now so my other half can play FFXIV with me when it is re-released in August. I may buy a PS4 for my son for Christmas.

I haven't voted yet, I hope ABer's will be able to help me out.

Here's some of The Verge coverage:

PS4: http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/10/4413238/sony-playstation-4-at-e3-2013-everything-you-need-to-know

Xbox One: http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/10/4414176/microsoft-xbox-one-at-e3-2013-everything-you-need-to-know

I see the Xbox being more "useful" long term at the moment, it's got loads of potential for being a communication tools etc.

Not sure if I fancy the subscription though...

Anyone spot a steam box amongst all the news?

Yes, the "slim" might be worth waiting for Daffy...

Not sure I'll adopt at launch but Xbox One for me. I like its ability to merge with a set-top box and move instantly from game to tv to app.

Yes it is more expensive than PS4 but for £80 extra you get more bang for your buck I feel.

will see how both consoles pan out in the marketplace until at least a year after release! isnt there some issue with playing 'used' games on the xbox one?
I think that PS4 will be an instant smash with Xbox One being a slow burner whilst people come to terms with its (at the moment) slightly odd concept.
I think that MS aren't after casuals this gen they are after non-gamers!
This could be a master-stroke or it could prove disastrous but with all the major devs behind it I think it will be fine.
I saw the xbox one release video.

Hardcore gamers dont want to be waving at the TV like Andre Previn. They want slick, photo-realistic graphics, big hdd space, decent online capabilites with huge lobby size that servers can handle. Real world physics - how will the water behave when I jump into the river, how will the environment act?

It all seems a bit gimmicky at the moment. I dont give a hoot how fast it switches between game and TV because when I'm gaming TV is the last thing I want! I already have a kinect - never use it.

I'm not a huge online player but do like to have online capabilities for downloads and occasional online playing.

will they both have wireless built in? you'd hope so.

My vote will go to the console with the best graphics, best deal for online (eg no subs) and best games market (only time will tell)

"My vote will go to the console with the best graphics, best deal for online (eg no subs) and best games market (only time will tell)"

No games swayed you from launch?

I think both have paid subs to get playing online now - but the PS4 lets you do online things without a sub as far as I know anyway.
I thought PS was free to play but PS+ was subscription based?
PS+ has an excellent business model which MS are now copying as you get decent, free games each month.
yes the xbox silver membership want really worth even being free!

not really seen a great deal Ed, just the Forza demo. I'm a big Forza fan so that excited me.
I have only ever owned and used an xbox 360 console, and prior to the latest information about the new generation of consoles, I would not have anticipated changing - but I am not a fan of the direction that Microsoft are going in with the XBox One, nor am I enamoured about the lack of retro-compatibility, the restrictions on the used games market, or a kind of "one box does everything" approach- and they really are extorting non- US customers with their pricing policy.

I will be switching to the PS4 this time around - reportedly a better gaming machine, cheaper, and able to play 2nd hand games.Nor will it be region restricted. About the only thing that the XBOX has that appears to be superior is the latest evolution of Kinect.....
"they really are extorting non- US customers with their pricing policy. "

How so?
@Matt- My comment was based on reading this article.

http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming/consoles/xbox-one-price-499-in-the-us-429-in-the-uk-1157848

US XBox One price is $499 - That would be equivalent to around £320. UK price however is est @ £100 more, at around £425..... I think that amounts to extortion, myself :)
