PS4 vs Xbox One results

Well I'm pretty confident that we can say that Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PS4 are this years flagship gaming consoles. Both beast's in their own right, with fantastic specs, killer game titles and unique experiences each. But just which one has done better, which one has won over more of the hearts of our ever growing tech and gaming society? Well read on and find out.

The Xbox One made by Microsoft released November 22nd 2013 was the sucessor to the Xbox 360. How has it done? Well lets just cut to the chase, the One has sold according to Microsoft 3.9M as of Janunary 1st 2014, then April 17th 2014 the company came back saying that they sold 5M units. Now that sounds like amazing sales, but is it really? Without a doubt this console should be compared to the Sony PS4 it's ultimate rival, and how did that console do?

The Sony PS4 the sucessor to the PS3 is also an amazing gaming console in it's own right. Sony came out saying that they sold 4.2M units as of Janunary 1st coincidentally also the same day as Microsoft announced their results. Then April 6th they said over 7 million units have been sold and thats an impressive number.

Sony apparently made a goal of selling 5 million before the end of 2014, well the good news for them is they surpassed it by 2 million. Not so hot news for Microsoft as now they have to sell 2 million more of their Xbox One if they want to catch up to Sony. We have already done reviews on theses two consoles but what does theses results mean to you? Which console do you prefer? All in all theses gaming consoles are fantastic at what they do and would definitely be a great addition to your home entertainment system.

How Xbox One opens the door for the next Apple TV

It's 2014. Apple has gathered everyone together for a special event. As Tim Cook presents, he says, "Today we're introducing three revolutionary new products. The first one is a cable box. The second one is a revolutionary streaming-media device. The third is a new way to play games on your TV. So, three things: a cable box, a streaming box, and a game console. Are you getting it? These are not three separate devices. This is one device. And we're calling it iTV."

The next Apple TV, that long-fabled product, doesn't exist yet. But it could. And it should. And it's not too late, not by a long shot. In fact, the future-of-TV transformation has yet to be settled, or even determined. It's a mess right now. The door is open. Apple can seize the moment.

If you think the Xbox One jams up Apple's plans, think again. The Xbox One is Apple's best friend. Apple needs the emerging TV landscape to be tackled, and whatever mistakes are made, Apple can improve upon them, and show everyone why that strategy was mistaken. This is the Apple Way. The iPhone was built on old smartphones, the iPad on failed tablets. The landscape now is littered with half-good, half-bad solutions: TiVo, Wii U and TVii, Google TV, Roku, Xbox 360, PS3, even the current Apple TV. None of them truly replaces your cable box. None of them is the true, absolute future of TV...

Microsoft talks Xbox One naming, privacy and more (Q&A)

REDMOND, Wash. -- Microsoft's got a new Xbox on the way, and according to the company, it's the foundation for the next 10 to 20 years of home gaming and entertainment.

The console, which has not yet been given a price, release date, or live game demos was shown off here on Tuesday and left just about as many questions as it did answers about where Microsoft is taking one of its most popular products.

CNET sat down with Jeff Henshaw, the group program manager for Xbox Incubation, to try to get some of those answers. That includes whether the company thinks naming a console "One" when it's technically the third-generation is confusing (spoiler: Microsoft thinks it won't be), whether the company will keep its much-disliked Microsoft Points currency around, and whether there will be hardened privacy for a system that depends on a camera designed to watch your every move...
