I'm not pre-ordering, but I am now highly interested in the PS4. You couldn't have paid me $500 to get XBoned and put one of those devices in my house.
I'm still waiting it out until we get closer to launch, just to make sure Sony doesn't have any tricks up its sleeve. From rootkits, to features being removed after purchase, it's still hard to trust them. I am hoping they have learned and are being genuine about respecting their customers and understanding wanting to actually own what you purchase.
If they stick to everything they announced with no gimmicks or hidden secrets, I do think they are going to run off with the next gen console wars. Who would put an MS box into their, knowing they were an early adopter of the NSA's PRISM program, with a device with an always on camera & mic?
You would literally have to be INSANE. And MS wants to decide who your friends are, who you can share with, and you better check in every 24 hours or no gaming for you (we promise we won't upload all the info we've been capturing while you are offline...). The new xbox literally digusts me and I will be sure to spread the word.
