Why I'm Choosing PlayStation 4 Over Xbox One

Chris Jager writes: "I have primarily been an Xbox 360 gamer. Whenever possible, I’d plump for the Xbox version of a game and rarely played PS3 exclusives unless work demanded it. This is in stark contrast to the previous generation, where I was a staunch PlayStation 2 supporter and barely even held an Xbox controller. In a few months, my allegiance is going to shift yet again." " (PS4, Xbox One)

everything i hear about PS4 is good news, everything i hear about X1 is a good ad for PS4!

in other words, all roads lead to PS4

This is the type of misinformation I've been talking about earlier and the Sony fans that invest this site will obviously agree with it.

@mew
1. More power, but dosn't have game-generated cloud computing and 300k servers.
2. Xbox exclusives beats PS4 in both quantity and quality.
3. 100 dollars more cause of its camera, which the inferior $60 PS eye doesn't include.
4. Better controller? Ok now I know you're trolling.
5. Kinect doesn't spy on you, but rather enhances dashboard navigation, TV integration, and gaming experiences like project spark.
6. If they intentially wanted to screw gamers over they would have ignored feedback and keep the DRM.
7. PS4 looks just like X1 except its more of a trapezoid.

#2???? Their exclusives beat PS4 in both quantity and quality? I have been an Xbox gamer since 2003 and the 360's exclusives since 2008 to me at least, have been mediocre. Halo 3 was the last good exclusive on the system for me.
Skips  +   688d ago

Pretty much, apparently to georgeenoob. Having LESS 1st party exclusives (20 > 15) from LESS talented developers (Sony studios > MS studios) means Xbox One has PS4 beat in quality and quantity. lol

This isn't even including MS having LESS PC/Console exclusives and indie exclusives.

Less means more now? Is today opposite day??? XD

1. I wonder how disappointed you will be once you realize 2 years down the line that PS4 has the same exact cloud and that it doesn't actually make xbone any more powerful.
2."xbox exclusives beats PS4 in quality and quantity"??? Quality, not if previous generations were any indication. Quantity? there is a recent article with all exclusives listed for both consoles, go check it out, Sony has about 8 more exclusives (give or take)
3. 100 dollars less. I don't want kinect and I don't want to waive my hands around like a fool
4. Better controller. That is subjective. I'm personally more hyped for DS4 because it has new features whereas xbones controller is the same thing with better rumble.
5. "kinect doesn't spy on you" Really? Go read a few non gaming articles. I got news you. Not only does it spy on you on a level never even imagined before, it will also set a precedent for all corporations to include "info gathering" tech inside everything you use. One day your toaster will be "alwalys on". Mark my words.
6. MS wanting to screw you "doesn't make a difference in the overall product". What a shallow way of thinking. Either you are very simple minded, or you are very young, or you are completely blinded by your bias to the point that you don't even care for gaming and your own rights as a consumer.
7. "PS4 looks just like X1" true, they aren't that different. Although you can kind of tell the X1 was designed with casuals in mind. It doesn't look like a gaming machine it just looks like any other player out there. That should tell you something about MS's down the line support for gamers, as should the inclusion of the casual friendly kinect, as should the fact that they had a GAMING console reveal, that didn't have GAMES. If these don't tell you who Microsoft's ultimate target group is, then I don't know what will. But I guess you wouldn't care anyway, just like you didn't care if MS was trying to screw you as long as in your eye "the final product wont be different". Enough said.

@Farcry

Want to know why it's been mediocre since 2008? Cause that's around the time MS started developing X1 and focusing on its exclusives.

@Skips
Look how many exclusives MS announced and look how many exclusives Sony announced. There's a difference between 20>15 games and 20>15 AAA games. Don't forget Sony's huge focus on indie exclusives.

EDIT: @below

You forgot Halo and Quantum Break. And Knack and Driveclub aren't considered AAA either leaving Killzone, the Order, and Infamous left. That means 6 AAA exclusives vs. Sony's 3. And I feel sorry for you of you think Gamescom or TGS is a bigger event for Sony than E3 or their reveal.

Wow, talk about giving your current fanbase the shaft. lol ... Not that MS are strangers to screwing over their customers anyway.

"There's a difference between 20>15 games and 20>15 AAA games"

LMFAO! Are you kidding??? The MAJORITY of what MS showed aren't even AAA games buddy. XD

Below, D4, Killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon, Lococycle, etc. are DEFINITELY not AAA games. Ryse, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, and MAYBE Sunset Overdrive are the only ones that we are sure can be categorized as AAA.

"Don't forget Sony's huge focus on indie exclusives."

You are aware that those 20 exlcusives are coming from FIRST party right??? Not indies... -___-

As I've said,

20 1ST PARTY EXCLUSIVES > 15 1ST PARTY EXCLUSIVES

How in the world is DriveClub not considered AAA? Knack, I agree is not. But if Knack isn't included than Sunset Overdrive shouldn't either.

4 announced vs 5 announced? Great??? They still have an embarrassingly low amount of PC/Console exclusives. lol

PS4: PlanetSide 2, DCUO, Warframe, Blacklight Retribution, Primal Carnage

Xbone: what? Project Spark and Titanfall??? LOL!

When the dust settles and all is clear...

20 > 15 1st party exclusives
Sony Studios > MS sub par/mediocre Studios

More indie exclusives > Less indie exclusives
More PC/Console exclusives > Less PC/Console exclusives

etc. etc.

Though it has been squashed...at first it was the DRM fiasco, and I am not talking about when it was first announced, I am referring to the rumors that first started and MS choose not say anything. Then the BS that followed after was too overwhelming to just sit there and just forgive them like nothing happened. I always knew MS was full of themselves, because they have been like that since they first hit the market but what transpired during and after the console reveal and then at E3 was a little too much. The flip-flopping they have done makes them look bad and I feel sorry for those who are deciding to stick with them. It will get better for MS Xbone in the future, but right now this system looks a mess.

Even your name makes you sound like a fool. Now to response to your to flamebait and fanboyism answers:

1. One word, GAIKAI. I can't wait for the day u'd realized that u've been fool by Microsoft on those ridiculous claim of Xbone to be powered by the cloud that will make it 3x, 10x, 40x more powerful. Just hillarious..
2. yeah,. keep telling yourself that. Xbone's hv 8 new exclusives while, PS4 has 12 new exclusives. Don't talk crap.
3. One word: CHOICE. SONY is giving it, what about your beloved Microsoft? yeah,. don't think so. I can't wait to see videos of you on the net when they spy on people..
4. Asymmetrical sticks on a controller doesn't work at all. That's why DS4 is the best and you know what.. it's sexier.
5. You're delusional. Kinect 2 is the perfect toy for spying and it will happen. It could be Microsoft themselves, the government or hackers. Have fun :)
6. LOL, who's to say they won't turn back on those setup? If they can do a 180, then they can do a 360. You'll see ;)
7. Urghh,.. nope. Xbone is a brick that looks like a the 80s VCR. PS4 is a sexy thing that you'd like to hug and show off to people. It is the epitome of the most beautiful console ever created. The PS2.

1. Yes it will. Exclusives will look a lot better.
2. Because you can see the future can't you?
3. $100 cheaper is indeed a good point.
4. That's personal preference.
5. That's debatable. But I know I'm much more comfortable with a console that doesn't require a camera to operate versus a console that does require an always on kinect.
6. True, but as consumers we want to purchase from a company that we know won't screw us over. I don't care if Microsoft did want to rack in the dough with those policies, what they were doing was just wrong.
7. Only point I agree with you. The look of the console doesn't matter. But it is nice to have a better looking one.

I'd say your post wasn't too great either, Sonny.

1) True, but a higher price would negate this advantage. (see #3)
2) Way too early to tell about this gen, and it's subjective anyway.
3) Calling this stupid is ridiculous. More power+Lower price = Good
4) Subjective.
5) Not immature at all. Being able to know how many people are in your home watching an event like the Superbowl is enough to call it a spy cam.
6) Not sure how your point cancels his at all. As long as it makes money, businesses can do whatever they want and it's justified?
7) Tell that to the people whose only job is to design the look of these systems. Also, One does look somewhat like an early VCR.

PS3 - Sony learned and proved. Also Sony released far more exclusives this gen. 360 gamers got shit. Look at how Sony still supports PS3 while the 360 is dead for years (TLoU,Ni No Kuni etc.)

@ truth teller,
Not once did I say PS4 is not better than X1,
I have owned practically every console since Atari 2600, and plenty of home computers, Spectrum, C64, ST, Amiga, CD32, even Oric Atmos. I did not put down anything about anything PS, except I do not like controller compared to 360 controller. I do like the value on PS+, but onlive multiplayer on 360 is in a different league. If you played both, you would know that. Exclusives, eye of the beholder issue, yes sure, I know PS3 coming on with some great games, but only in its later years. As I said, I am getting both next gen, because I want to play the best of what both have to offer. I know too a game does not cost $100, do not be a technical smart ass... unless collectors edition, but calling other people retarded because they buy something else is the ultimate fanboy statement from a fanboy who therefore probably has no life if he resorts to stupid statements like that. Enjoy your gaming, I drive a Corolla, you drive a Civic maybe, who cares, life is life... it is not a contest. If thats how you feel you have serious issues.

REMOTE PLAY

This is the #1 feature being overlooked. You can play your PS4 games anywhere! How is this not the greatest feature ever?
BattleTorn  +   688d ago
hmmmm. You know, you have an excellent point.

It's a feature I've never used much of on the Wii U. But I don't have the type of games I expect from next-gen on Wii U - like awesome RPGs. (ahem *western)

I've always shrugged off remote play because I always think that it's coming to be a dumbed down, bare-boned, version of the PS3 game. Which I know is not what they are going for with remote play. I could definitely get pumped for full remote play.
JetP0619  +   688d ago
@BATTLETORN, except wii u cant do remoteplay anywhere the same as vita.
iceman06  +   688d ago
@BattleTorn...It will be the EXACT same game that you play on the PS4 (bar any controller tweaks that have to be made to play on the Vita) because the game will essentially be streamed from the PS4 to the Vita. All of the hard processing work is done on the system. It works pretty good right now. But, I think, the PS4 was actually designed with this in mind...as opposed to it being an added feature on PS3.
guitarded77  +   687d ago
@ BattleTorn

I get what you're saying. I have a Wii U too, but I can't even play on my back poarch or in the next room. The signal from Wii U to gamepad goes less than 20 linear feet. With the Vita/PS4, I will be able to play anywhere. This is huge, but I haven't seen people getting that excited for it. I think iceman06 has a point with the PS4 and Vita being designed for this feature. There will probably be some latency, but if they can make it negligible, this will be a huge feather in Sony's hat that no one else will have.

1 is questionable because of all of the extra advancements that are at available to the system and the developers and because the xbox one's gpu is still a very huge mystery. like it or not, but there is still time to add 8gigs of gddr5 for the gpu and keep the 8gigs of ddr3 for the cpu for all of it's multitasking functions. the 499 price range left a load of room just for that. the 100 dollars extra pricing clearly isnt because of the kinect, because we already know that the system itself has slighty lower specs which means a cheaper build (from the specs we know of as of now). so at best, even with the kinect being bundled in with the console, it shouldnt be but 349. so where is that extra 100 to 150 dollars? id say it's for either the gup upgrade or something massive that hasnt been announced yet. and there are a few more games shows left to pretty much relaunch the announcement of the console and win a few more hearts before the actual release of the system. there is a very good window of opportunity there for them that wont cause them to have to push the release back at all. it was done with the xbox 360 and it can be done again.

2 is clearly wrong. (the xbox brand clearly has the better exclusives. lets not get quantity confused with quality)

4 is just laughably dead wrong (everyone knows that the xbox brand of controllers have always been the better games controller for the games that we play today. and from xbox 360 up to the xbox one will be no difference because they didnt change any of the good things about the controller. they only added more good stuff to it (mainly a better dpad) :-)

5 is wrong because the ps4 also has a spy cam (and the ps4 has a higher chance of getting hacked because of it's weak network security as opposed to xbox live. this is not fiction. it's a fact. im sure you remember the 3 month down time from psn being hacked) nuff said about that one

6 is just your negative mind wanting to see it as them trying to screw you. i personally see it as them wanting to compete with steam on distribution and pricing (which IS the only way to compete with them)

7 is also a joke because they both look alike. the only difference is so minute that its not even a real changer or an improvement. the slight slanting of the front and the back of the console doesnt make it a better looking system. it makes it a trash design just like the xbox one. i dont like the look of either of them.

but
T2  +   687d ago
1. MS will NOT change their specs now or it will delay their already treacherous launch which by pre-order is not going that well. Also the 499 did not leave a "range of room" why would they overcharge consumers, just to drop the price within one month? Then everyone would return them to retailer. The 499 is based on what they WANT to get from consumers. They are not going to throw in extras now.

2. LOL - worst argument yet. unless you are blatantly a troll, there is no way MS exclusives outpace Sony in anyones mind. Name one game that Sony has not copied in some form plus added others like uncharted which MS can not answer (fable lol). Halo/Gears/Forza is not a valid argument here. Neither are any timed exclusives like titanfall.

4. Controllers - wtf seriously why do people even bring this up. There are a whole range of aftermarket controllers, custom grips, custom buttons, custom triggers, etc, etc. This is not even a point. But if you do want to compare then DS4 has in fact gotten rave reviews.

5. Sony does not have a spycam, it has a webcam. One that can be SHUT OFF whenever you choose and does not feed consumer info to advertisers or to the government as in MS new agreement with the NSA. Also PSN was shut down from the SOURCE to update security, it was not hacked for 3 months. Microsoft also shut down their own XBL for security patches as well. Nuff said indeed.

6. You obviously enjoy bending over for large corportations who tell you what to like. Yes sir, I love always on tech.... I will certainly make sure I buy the 99 dollar ultra high speed internet so I can play all your games sir.

7. Who cares, other than a giant sphere or cube, smaller is always better if it functions. Not an issue.

8-16 - see above posters.

See I don't care which system I buy (but i'm only getting the best one) but I sure as hell am going to do research first, and that doesn't include listening to your propoganda straight from MS.

Dual shock is too floaty in the analogs and too cramped in design compared to the 360 controller. They kept it the same basically, but I'm excited that they fixed some issues and the DS4 actually looks really good, so if I like the way it plays/feels then I'm getting a PS4 for sure.

So many good reasons to buy one.

my points and this are facts.

1) $100 cheaper than xbone.

2) 50% more raw power and easier faster to develop, multiplataform games will now look and run better or equal. developers love it! = better games

3) No forced spy camera that can even see the flow of your blood. You don't even know the agenda behind this camera. Is pure evilness believe me.

4) more AAA first party exclusives by better proven studios, way more indie games, way many more PC games that are not in the Xbone. In general the PS4 will have way many many many more games that you can't play on the XBONE.

5) GAIKA can do anything m$ clouds can and Gaika is actually proven that and have the experience. Sony has a amazing network and proven the most powerful network ever!.

6) The PSN has better and more features than the Xbox live, I mean you can play and help your friends from china to finish a level been in Los Angeles, that my fiend is amazing. ps+ have better deals and free games, xboxlive does not.

9. Sony has more reliable hardware
10. More F2P games coming to PS4 = more value
11. More game studios = more games in the long run.

Xbox one has the better controller.You can buy the Xbox one with or with-out the Kinect.And we have better exclusives because they actually showed them on the Xbox One.Not PC power.

Even better exclusives? Funny cause we have seen only one exclusive. You trolls are just amazing...get a life.

Im choosing it because I love most if not all PlayStation exclusive series and it feels nice paying only $399 to go next gen
negative  +   688d ago
Right because $499 is absolutely ludicrous.
Mr_Nuts  +   688d ago
Well if your paying more for less then yeah it is...least with the expensive PS3 back in 2006 we got a blu ray player with it which advantages has shined during the recent years.
MysticStrummer  +   688d ago
"Right because $499 is absolutely ludicrous."

It is for me because I don't want a camera on my console, One's TV functions are absolutely worthless to me since I haven't watched traditional TV in years, I prefer Sony's exclusives, I prefer Sony's controller, and if I'm paying more I expect more power. I think that about sums it up.
BattleTorn  +   688d ago
MysticSrummer,

you know I actually think the TV functions are pretty nifty.... that said, I too haven't watched - nay, even had - cable in years, and years. I just skip cable, and stick to turbo internet.

yes, 499$ is absolutely Ludicrous, and ridiculous,.
For a less powerful, Glory-holed Cable Box. that will use Kinect to tell the Age, Weight, sex , & how many are in the room, to put customized Ads, on a service you pay for,.. Absolutely ludicrous.

truthteller  +   688d ago
Yeah let's spend 400$ on the PS4 and then 500$ on some shit because I'm made of money.
Typical-Guy  +   688d ago
So by your logic, if you can afford to buy them all, you're wasting money. And if you can't and went with the PS4, you're awesome and feel good about yourself!

I can afford all and I'm getting them, I want to play games and a lot of them. Why would I limit myself...
ssj27  +   687d ago
Actually why waste money on the XBONE when you can get the PS4 at a $100 cheaper price with more games and with facts that is a better value.

Why spending $500 on a console when you can spend $500 in recent and future games.?

if you are a gamer you will spend money on games for the PS4 and not on a extra console that is a inferior to the PS4 in ever aspect.

your mentality is the stupid one, "yeyyyy buy both! if you are a 'real' gamer!!'
what are you 10 years old? stupid mentality. m$ wishes you buy both since if you buy one you will only chose the PS4 because is just better value and cheaper price point.

As a true gamer I like good games... I can still play halo and gears on the 360, So why get the One when there are not that many great exclusives that benefit from the new hardware? Infamous and Killzone will DESTROY any XBOX exclusive! Once Microsoft gets some good games that are EXCLUSIVES... then I will buy it.

The PS4 is so far superior to the XBOX One that comparing the two is unfair. The better comparison is XBOX ONE To the WII U. Thats because Microsoft was sitting on so much money (like the WI) And instead of spending it on first party game developers, The company coasted and raked in that XBOX live money. They only have Forza Halo and gears coming out and outside that they have ZERO great first party exclusives coming out that is worth getting.

Meanwhile Sony is still coming out with new first party IPS like deep down, 1886, The last of us, Beyond 2 souls, and they still have the best exclusives like Infamous, Uncharted, and LBP. Gorilla games is also working on a new IP!

The PS3 has better hardware, software, and is cheaper! You can upgrade your ROM when you need more space and play first party exclusives while enjoying the free to play games... cant do that on XBOX. But hey, There is still the Magic of the "CLOUD"

No_Limit  +   688d ago
Garbage article again.

"Most gamers would agree that Xbox Live Gold provides a superior online gaming experience to the Playstaion Network — but if you measure both services in dollars, is it really 80 times better? While the PlayStation 3 lets you play online games with others for free, the Xbox 360 requires a yearly subscription of $80. When you add this up over the lifespan of the console, you’ve spent a whopping $560 to date. "

LOL, he clearly didn't get the memo that PS4 requires $50 a year for online play and on a weaker service while Xbox Live games all on dedicated server.

Gamers are really children I swear.

Pick the one you want and just be happy I don't understand the need to validate your reasons of purchasing a product.

Ps4? Great
Xbox One? Great
Both? Fantastic

When the media goes on about games and gamers you hear the outcry from them claiming maturity yet they fight over the stupidest stuff and literally get upset.

Let's talk games not consoles that you know haven't even come out yet...Oh the humanity.
hankmoody  +   688d ago
I'm eventually getting a PS4 but right now, I'm going with an Xbox One first. Why? Simple. They showed games that actually impressed me. I can't think of one PS4 game that I saw that truly impressed me the way that the games lineup on the Xbox One did. Titanfall alone was enough to get my preorder in that same night it was announced.
JBSleek  +   688d ago
Friend!!!

You sound just like me. I want the One because the games so far seem just better in every way.

I plan on getting a PS4 black Friday next year hopefully on the cheap for around 250 or 300 bucks.

Titanfall is the truth. That game is killer in 2014.
MizTv  +   688d ago
To bad you don't need a xboxone to play it
ssj27  +   687d ago
I bet you have a xbox360, why not get the game for the xbox360?
TITANFALL is just a current gen game port, not a reason to get a xbone, plus is not coming until next year.. what will you play for a whole year?

If you get the PS4 you save $100, you can get a true next gen fps KILLZONE SF on day one with DS2 free to play fps game that is fantastic with few other f2p games and once titalfall comes out you can get it on the xb360 or sale your PS4 and buy the XBONE.

That will be a smart move to do.

Supporting the industry also means buying a console fielded by a company that (you believe) is doing good IN the industry.

People have always felt the need to explain their preferences, justify why it's superior to another. Dunno why that's really such a big deal.

AlexanderNevermind  +   688d ago
Having been one who paid 600 for the original launch PS3, Price is not the issue for me. Quality of the product is. The 360 was cheaply made and the failure of the unit is well documented. This is why I did not purchase/support it.

My concern with the X1 is that it is being asked to do so much with its always on/entertainment hub mentality. How will this affect the longevity of the unit (taking into consideration its bloodlines)?

I went into E3 ready to choose which ever console seemed to be the best. At this point Ps4 seems to be just leading by a wide margin
