You know that if Microsoft tries to copy anything from the Playstation 4, thats copyright? and for that they can get sued.

Both companies can "copy" an idea from each other. Heck, game developers do it all the time from older looking games.

They just do as much as they can to avoid and copy-rights or patients.

They copied when they made the Xbox. Even the controller is pretty much the same if you switch the D-pad with the left analog boom same controller 4 buttons in the same spot. Hell xbox360 got their name from the PS controller lol X, Square, circle.

I seriously doubt Microsoft will copy much from the PS4. Why? Several reasons.

 

First if the rumors are true than the Xbox is heading in a more family orientated direction where they try to build a console for the whole family. More of an entertainment hub then an actual game station. Sony has made it clear they want nothing to do with that. Their goal has always been to entertain as a game console. Microsoft on the other hand has stated that they always intended to make the Xbox a home entertainment center rather than an actual platform for gaming. Sure they will game, but not as much as Sony will. Microsoft will, and has already started to, implement tools and toys on the 360 that are for more of a family demographic.

 

Second. As some may already expect, changes are not quick when it comes to something as complex as a gaming console. So to "copy" someone would be unrealistic because it would take a massive amount of time and money to switch directions. The only way they could have "copied" the PS4's designs is if they stole them well before the consoles were fully developed, which I am sure ever major company does at this point anyways.

 

If personally think the new Xbox will be a seriously different beast than anyone expects, which is why I am so curious to its reveal. I think people may be shocked with what Microsoft has changed.

 

Cheers, Brrnout

Ideas and features are not copyrights.  Microsoft can implement any feature that the PS4 has without issue.  Issues arise when features are implemented using a method that has been patented, which I doubt Microsoft is going to do.

Sounds like you need to spend less time playing videogames and more time gaining an education.  You have no idea what a copyright is.  Smiley Tongue

Except... the layout of a controller is not a patent-able "thing"..... that something that is highly subjective.

If anything the Xbox has takent the same layout of the Dreamcast controller and just added a 2nd analog stick and two shoulder buttons
dreamcast controller

And no.... They did not name the 360 after the shapes on the PS controllers.... you're an idiot if you believe that conspiratorial rhetoric based on an unhumorous photo depicting such.
