PSXE Poll Update: Don't Need Xbox One, We Got The PS4!

There will be many who end up with both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But the majority of our readers, at least for the time being, are happy with the one-console approach.

In our latest poll, we asked our readers this- if they didn't own an Xbox One, why? What's the problem? Not enough games? Too expensive? What? Well, as turns out, the majority of participants simply said they're "good with the PS4."

It's interesting to note that the second-largest group said they "just plain don't like Microsoft." The company didn't exactly do a bang-up job last year when they announced the new Xbox, and let's not forget that gamers often remember. Microsoft may have rescinded those annoying policies but their reputation definitely took a hit. Besides, it stands to reason that if you're a Sony fan, you might not be all that into Microsoft. Logical, of course.

This week, let's try the same question, only with the PlayStation Vita as the subject. Obviously, "I just plain don't like Sony" won't be an option because we imagine it won't be a popular choice.

Should've put "I just plain don't like Sony" on there. Reasonably certain that at least ethird and Blank would go with that...

I'm just not interested in the Vita anymore. I don't know why, as it has several games that I'd really like to try out, and it isn't because it's too expensive. And portable gaming is good for when you're commuting, and sometimes when you need a break from the big screen. *shrugs*

I have named "BLANK" as the END of the LINE. He has what seems to be a Love/Hate relationship with Sony.

kinda hard not to hate a company when their products are so poorly designed and built you would swear they were build and designed by a team of monkeys!
especially when their products are always significantly more expensive, and always worse.
there worse than toshiba!

when you spend 1500 dollars on their HMZ-T3 head mounted display and get it home and it does not work, thats kinda a problem.
when its so poorly and stupidly designed so the WHOLE weight of the device is resting on 1 tiny little pad on your forehead, thats kinda a problem.
when its so poorly designed that it has padding on the back strap which ends up pushing your head into the display, but there is no padding there just hard sharp plastic, thats kinda a problem.
theres a reason why the oculus rift has padding around the WHOLE headset!
and its the same reason why it has a strap going OVER your head, not AROUND it.

when you buy a brand new DS4 controller, and only not even 2 months later and 20 hours of use the rubbers on the sticks are coming off, thats kinda a problem!

when you release the successor to a product, but instead of having a boom mic in front of your mouth, you have a tiny little dot in one of the earcups, so no one can hear what your saying, you know you have a problem!
i was so excited for the pulse headsets, i had the original 7.1 ones and the pulse were SUPPOSE to be better!
but there not, there less comfortable, 5.1 instead of 7.1, sound qualities worse theres allot of bass hiss, mic quality is non existent, yea thats totally BETTER!

when you spend 5800 bucks on their top of the line LX900 and 2 months later its having backlighting issues, thats kinda a problem!
when you spend 400 on their top of the line bluray player and within weeks its having issues reading discs, you have a problem!

sticking with TVs my old HX800 actually has WORSE picture quality than the model TV it replaced.
whats the point of releasing a replacement model, which is more expensive, and worse?

when you spend 1000 bucks on the ps3 and again within weeks its having problems reading discs, you have a problem!

so excuse me for complaining when their products are so poorly designed, and pathetically unreliable, you could swear they were designed and built by f*cking monkeys!
common sense, you DO NOT place the WHOLE weight of a device in one place of course its going to be uncomfortable, i mean come on a f*cking toddler would tell you that!
yet the engineers of one of the worlds largest electronic companies could not figure out what a f*cking toddler could!

not helping them is their attitude.
when i took the T3 back and gave them all these problems, their response?
oh yea it wasent really designed its just a prototype device.
so charging 1500 bucks for a device and calling it a prototype excuses you from the idiotic moronic design decisions?
seriously, its like they just dont give a sh*t!

i want the good old $ony back who use to make things the best they could possibly be.
not the $ony who creates things to be as cheap as they could possibly be!

*begins slow clap*

According to that, you've spent at least $8000 on the products of a company that you insist puts out poorly designed and low quality goods. And yet... you keep going back and doing so again. To me, that screams stupidity. Personally, if I buy something from a company and it turns out to be a bad investment, they don't generally get a second chance as there are a lot of alternatives for most anything out there. Actually gives me the feeling that you have more money than sense.

I've generally had very good experiences with Sony products, but I'm not going to bother writing a novel as there isn't much sense in dealing with the unreasonable.

i only keep going back because im a sony x member and end up getting pretty good discounts on stuff.
for instance when i bought the LX900 i wanted to get a panasonic plasma instead but couldent justify the added price, that and plasmas really need a dark room and i have far too many big windows in that room a plasma wouldent suit.
so i switched to the samsung series 9, but for some reason samsung only offer 1 composite input in that particular TV so that was out of the question because i needed more.
so it was either $ony or LG or sharp who dont exactly have much a better reputation than $ony.

Maybe PSXE could show how important the Vita and PS4 are by having quick links on the top right of the page. :-)

I plain just don't like Microsoft and I'm also good with the PS4 as my primary console. My secondary console is gonna be the Wii U, basically because Nintendo exclusives.

I don't buy "it has no games" argument for the Vita, tell that to my two memory cards. It has games just maybe not the games everyone wants.

Agreed. I'm not voting this poll. I want one. But the reason I'm not picking up one right now is my near future job situation.

I don't like portable gaming. But my PS1 games look like dogsh*t on a big HD TV so the Vita is a nice compromise. JRPGs might wind up there so it's good to have for that reason. The remote play is really cool but I won't use it much.

I like the 360 but I don't really like Microsoft. They always seem to pander to their audience and stick to a game releasing formula of 5 game franchises and market the crap out of them in whatever year for whatever in these franchises. Its a successful formula unfortunately so I don't them changing that tactic. But MS lost most of their advantages of last gen (better multiplats, cross game chat, lower price) and I could care less for superfluous features like snap mode. So I don't think I be picking up one anytime soon. I'm just fine with my PS4.

This new vote seriously lack one option: "I use an android/iOs-based device instead". Cause that's the *real* reason there's not sold more Vitas.

I'm into portable gaming, don't own a 3ds, I don't think Vita is that particularly expensive and would not worry too much about the number of games as long as I knew others too bought the machine, case then the games *would* come.

But I got an Android phone and a tablet, and together they completely nullify the need for a third machine.

I don't see the need to buy an entire platform just for a few games, not with the amount of quality being released these days.

Oh well, I guess if something utter insanity happened, like the new Mass Effect trilogy somehow became a Vita exclusive I'd consider getting one just because of that. But that's just never gonna happen on any handheld device.

Never in my life have I said, "I can't wait to get home so I can play this Android/iOS game!"

Know why? Because they are good only for the times when you are so out of options that you would contemplate jamming a pen in your Aorta just to give yourself something to do.

its pretty hard to justify 2 systems at launch, but in a few years time once the library grows and the services grow and improve then it will open itself up.

as for the vita it needs a its not what it should be option.
yea the price, lack of games, and exorbanent price of accessories aint helping, but the biggest problem with the vita is its just not what it should be.
playstations always meant the most advanced system in its field.
when the ps1 came out it blew everyones socks off!
it did not matter how expensive it was, it did not matter how few games were available for it, people bent over backwards because it brought new amazing experiences.
hell it took YEARS for the competition to catch up and offer what the ps1 did!
but now the vitas facing all the problems playstation products face, but its also not the most advanced system out there, and thats whats hurting it the most.
hell 99% of the phones on the market have higher specs than the vita!
NOTHING about the vita is cutting edge, and thats whats hurting it the most.
even its OLED screen, phones have been using SAMOLED screens for years now!
not to mention 1080P became the standard years ago, something the vita can only dream of!

the vitas struggling because its not what it should be.
not only on a hardware side either, i mean if i was to list every software thing my phone can do that the vita cant god id need all the trees in the world times 1000 to generate enough paper!
the WHOLE point of the vita was to bring a next gen experience on the go, and thats the exact problem because its not.
$onys chucked a nintendo and released a half a$$ed overpriced product onto the market.
the problem is though people expect that of ninty, you dont buy a nintendo product expecting the starship enterprise.
you do expect that from playstation though.

The hate for the Vita puzzles me.

Ok, if you have a PS3 or 4 in your house and spend all your time gaming at home there may not be a need for a Vita.

If you commute a lot, are on the go a lot or want to game on the bed whilst the wife or kids are watching TV it is excellent.

Also those that say they are happy with a tablet or phone for their mobile gaming needs fine, but can you please tell me what mobile games rival Uncharted, Assassins Creed, Killzone, Need for Speed, Soul Sacrifice, Dragons Crown, Gravity Rush, Little Big Planet, Tearaway or multiple other top quality games?

Yes, the memory cards are expensive but I have tonnes of games and am never stuck for something to play. I have spend a lot longer with my Vita in the last year than my PS3 which is saying something.

Im happy with my ps4 & ps3 for everything else. I dont plan on buying a mircosoft console this generation. If any thing i may pick up a steam machine as my second gaming system.

As for this weeks poll im just not intrested in a vita. Well i was interrested in a vita till they just announced monster hunter 4 for the 3Ds in 2015. So im more intrested in the 3Ds at the moment.

I don't have any use for a handheld. When I'm not at home I'm busy doing stuff, like working or shopping or playing golf. When I am at home I'd much rather play on my 32" HDTV than some tiny little screen.

I think you've either had extremely bad luck, or you do not take care of your equipment properly (I'd like to think the first one) because I have never had any problems with Sony products, some of which I still have and are up to 15 years old and still working flawlessly.

Saying "designed by a group of monkeys" is blowing it out of proportion.

I love my PS3, PS4, and PS Vita!!!! Remote play is awesome on the Vita and PS4! As far as M$, I've always been a Sony fan and nothing they've put out has really interested me. Not to mention, the failure rate of their products.

sobleck im in the same boat as you i want a Vita but theirs so many PS3 games coming out this year that i just don't have the $$ for everything

if i put aside every PS3 game i want this year i could buy a Vita with a 32 gig mem card and since ive been putting Vita games on my DL list from PS+ i already have like 13 Vita games

so its not a matter of no games its a matter of deciding what i want first

and MS their Console itself doesn't impress me im not a fan of games dropping as low as 10 frames per second like Dead Rising 3 can do

Kinda glad M$ just bought out GEars of War - I was finding it hard to justify buying an Xbone just for Titanfall and Halo. Now there is no chance Gears will come the the PS4 so I will buy the 2nd machine.
