    Long story short, Sony got the exclusive rights to Street Fighter V. Pretty much sealed the deal on PS4 being the console of the fighting game community.

    Yeah it's because of SF5 being on PS4, they don't wanna buy two consoles for no reason. Maybe if KI was more popular we would see some Xboxs.

    Because it's better.

    Better system, better interface, better controller, and better games.

    Better on all but system is subjective. Even that has endless arguments.

    I mean, look online. Simply put in terms of raw numbers, PS4 is simply the more popular console, both within the FGC, but well beyond. It's really not surprising.

    I believe that the first season of ESL was on Xbox, because they sponsored the series at least in part if I'm not mistaken, but since then PS has sponsored many events including CEO right now (I believe PS4 is one of the primary sponsors of the whole I2 pro series).

    Plus, I'd bet if you look online in terms of raw number of players for each console for NRS games, PS4 is way ahead.

    Either way it doesn't really matter for in person events because I'm fairly certain converters allow you to use whatever pad, stick, hitbox etc. you want.

    I guess it only really matters for online events, but in that case, if you're a truly serious competitor, why not go where the opportunities are and where the high level players are? If you're at the level where that is truly an issue for you, well then it's simply an investment.

  8. Not to argue but I find the pad on Xbox horrible, way too bulky for my taste.

    The reason I like it is because it's easier to roll your thumb like DF BF DB etc. doesn't feel natural on PS4 but the hori fightpad is clutch. I'm glad it's finally out for the xb1

    Because nobody loves Microsoft. Simple enough. And whoever loves Microsoft is a casual and a scrub.

    PS4 is also far more popular than the Xbone.

  14. Also I like my pad to feel like a controller, not have my hands have to hover around it like a spaceship. But yea that's a different subject. To each his own.

    PS4 players trying to do their best "PC Master Race" impersonation. lol. Hitbox Tyrant plays on XBox, and there are plenty others on Xbox that would free you up.

    ...And the fanboy scrubz come out...

    Sony paid big for SF5, and all comps feature SF5. Not so much with the Killer Instinct, so there's no reason for a shitload of TWO consoles.

    As for I2, so far all performance issues (freeze-ups, stutters) have been on PS4, not my Xbone, so it's not performance, it's money.

    But PS controllers are shit, though, lol.

    I'm more of a tech master race and I value the technology above of all, so... PC>PS4>X1>Switch. :)

    Dude what? That ps4 pad is just outright sad. I don't know how anybody plays on it is rather use a GameCube controller as a pad lmfao.

    I like the PS4 pad for Uncharted, it feels nice to use for most games.

    But the d-pad is absolutely terrible, using it for Injustice is awful imo.

    Games run better and at higher resolutions
    (Not an opinion)

    UI doesnt lock up and gives you the ability to delete blutooth controllers
    (Not an opinion)


    Effectively plays all fighting games except for Killer Instinct
    (Not an opinion)

    Controller is an opinion. I kinda hate both the xbone and ps4 pads alike, but they are both good for their own reasons.

  22. Well this guy just gave you 3 good reasons. As for the pads, he's right too. I said I wasn't gonna start an argument about it so I won't but yea I gave my reason why I don't like the Xbox pad not just say "I don't like it". If you wanna play on a bulky ass softball then be my guest lol. Anyways carry on.

    Dunno about u guys with the controllers, but the PS4 d-pad works for me. The Xbox ones doesn't fit me well. I have small, yet powerful hands.

    They both suck, but I guess PS4 sucks slightly less.
