Next-Gen Outlook: Why I'm Leaning Toward Xbox One Over PS4

GR: There's a fierce battle that's going to take place in just a few months' time. A showdown that gamers have been eagerly anticipating for years. Both Sony and Microsoft will be releasing their next-generation consoles this fall, and with the competition growing more intense each passing day, the showdown between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be one for the history books.

Right now, Sony clearly has the upper hand. With a solid reveal, appealing price point, and a whole lot of love from indie developers, gamers are flocking to PlayStation's side. Meanwhile, Microsoft totally botched the Xbox One announcement with poor messaging, a higher price point, and a DRM flip flop that has everyone questioning the company's overall vision. As such, I can totally understand why Sony's camp is a bit larger than Microsoft's at the moment—but oddly enough, I'm still far more interested in the Xbox One.

Now before you bite my head off, just here me out.

Update:

*hear me out.

did he have to write this just to say: "because of Halo"?

If that's all you got from it then...what can we say?

Enjoy your X1, but I prefer the PS4 :)

(and I have a LOT of reason to prefer the PS4 over the x1, but I don't want to bother all people around the world!)

JoGam1162d ago

Im leaning towards the PS4.............. Because of Killzone. What can you say?

Aery1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

This "article" is clearly a clickbait :

"You may be inclined to throw Infamous: Second Son or Killzone: Shadow Fall out in defense, but neither one of those games is on the triple-A order of something like a new God of War"

Infamous and Killzone are not AAA ?!!?!?

Wait, he reply :

"Not on the order of a Halo, Gears of War, God of War, or Gran Turismo.
Check out the sales numbers if you don't believe me."

Are you serious ?

O_o

Hatsune-Miku1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

might as well change the name of the article to "WHY IM LEANING TOWARDS INFERIORITY".

its fine for people to prefer inferior things but when the main purpose of a device is better elsewhere and is cheaper then its borderline insanity to choose a lesser product and pay more for it when youre knowledgeable about the history of the products.

a lot of xbox gamers said they dont care about exclusive titles but then is touting how they are choosing xbox one because it has more exclusives over ps4 even though it isnt true.

the ps4 is the best gaming system coming out this year and will be the best gaming platform for its generation judging by the history of playstation and bolstered by the amazing support of the ps3 . xbox 360 support is basically over but ps3 still has a lot of first party support in the works. ps4 is already said to have more exclusive titles being made for it than the xbox one and i can almost guarantee that ps4 will have a lot more exclusive titles than all gaming platform in its generation.

if someone prefers a lesser gaming platform then xbox one is for them

abzdine1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

i'm definitely getting PS4, not only for some exclusive launch titles awesomeness but for all unannounced future games.
Do you imagine skipping next Uncharted and Santa Monica studios games? How about the next GT or TLoU?

EDIT: I respect the writer's opinion on being a Halo fanboy, but the PlayStation gamer never buys a PS console for one game, PS DNA is all about variety.

I know we're getting good platformers, tons of good FPS, TPS, Racing, singing, social family games on PS4 so that's the reason i'm getting one.

morganfell1162d ago

"Update

No.

You are supporting a company and console that, until their arm was twisted behind their back to the point of breaking, were planning on committing the grandest infringement of gamer rights in the history of gaming itself.

So no. Just no. No clicks, no listening to your ramble on, no hits for your site. Ever.

MS placed profits above gamers and the casual above the core.

So no. Just no.

Be prepared to have your entire site written off for this absurd article. I hope the hits were worth it. Do not come back in a few days with a pro-PS4 article as no one will buy it.

And that pleading update at the end is pathetic. Reap the whirlwind. Reap it.

Feel free to list the PS4's , lol. What do they have? I'm getting a since of deja-vu though because just like 2006 when there wasn't anything worth playing on the PS3 and other gamers besides Sony fans were telling them that, they all got upset and were in denial. Check back in about 8 years and see if they bring up 2013, claiming they were getting picked on.

Jackstraw, give it up, lol. At least post videos and leave out "console exclusives" they're not exclusives, lol. And also, please list system sellers like I did please. You had to put "console exclusives" in there because Sony doesn't or hasn't revealed any real exclusives except 3 or 4. And if I decided to post XB1 indie games and "console exclusives" then my list would severly long. Indie games aren't what's gonna have me spending money on a new console. No...just no.

MysticStrummer1162d ago

"Let's face it, the launch lineup for either platform isn't particularly spectacular, but this is to be expected, as hardware launches rarely ever have a deluge of killer games to go along with them. You may be inclined to throw Infamous: Second Son or Killzone: Shadow Fall out in defense, but neither one of those games is on the triple-A order of something like a new God of War."

All hope of credibility gone.

@beckfire - "Look at all these butthurt Sony fanboys. Sorry man you just don't post this kind of stuff on N4G, there's way too much insecure trolls to accept an opinion.

As for the fanboys, MANY people prefer Xbone over PS4. Want a reason? Exclusives 'nuff said. X1 beats PS4 by a long shot correct me if I'm wrong.

As with many gamers, we tend to narrow our decisions down to exclusives. Sorry PS fans."

Labeling someone butthurt when they have a different opinion makes you seem like the insecure one, not to mention immature.

You're right about one thing, many gamers buy a console based on exclusives, but who has the best ones is only an opinion. I'll be buying a PS4 because to me Sony has been the clear leader in exclusive content for three generations in a row. For my money, MS has better exclusives than Nintendo but that's not saying much.

Genuine-User1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

Microsoft has 3 major games at launch out of which two are made by third party studios, where as Sony has 3 games made in house by first party studios. Quite frankly it shows the diversity and strength of Playstation as a gaming giant.

finbars751162d ago

Wraith some of the games you mentioned earlier are not launch titles sorry to break the news to you.Plzz do your info before posting.Plus Gamescon is next month and PS has alot of there games to announce which we havnt seen yet plus TGC is in september which more games will be announced where as MS has already blown there load at E3 which leaves them with nothing exciting to look forward to or announce to until XBO launch.Sony played it calm and collect in that department which is why alot of fanboys have something to look forward to while you continue to talk about games that where announced in june which gets old fast.

Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, and D4 aren't launch window GG.

Next, "Crimson Dragon" is hardly a system seller, neither is quantum break, D4, Sunset Overdrive, or Project Spark (also on PC).

Here, if you want to include 'those' games, I will too.

PS4 has Planetside 2, Blacklight Retribution, DCUO, Warframe, War Thunder, and Primal Force coming, those are Just ports of PC.

And come on. We've seen these past 4 years how MS hasn't given a single s*** about games. GTFO PL0X.

the guy's biased as hell, just read what he says:

Alex_Osborn: "The fact that I got nearly just as much out of TLOU by just watching it on YouTube as when I played it is one of the reasons I simply can't justify buying a console solely to play Naughty Dog's games."

He's just a fanboy in disguise and he shows that in his writing.

did you really just say "at least post videos?"
wow. that's totally great research! go to youtube and fetch some gameplay vids! woohoo.

if you care to search te games, take it upon yourself to do it. i just posted the names of all the exclusives and console exclusive games.

and since people (including me) don't like the term "console exclusive", i'll repost with just exclusives.

YNWA961162d ago

I prefer my games.... Do not care what system its on... A ferrari is a much superior car to a Honda civic, but on city streets its just like any car. Sure some games will look better on PS4, but thats no guarantee it will be a superior game. You know it all anal huggers go on about specs so much, yet some of the best games have been cheap 8 bit looking games. I love the Halo serious, and enjoyed Killzone, but every time it came out, it was the Halo killer.... Has not happened yet, but I do not care, I got hours of entertainment from them. Now either enjoy the games, or search for some specs..... The ladies will love hearing your stories.....

"Why I'm Leaning Toward Xbox One Over PS4"

Because im a fvcking idiot, who likes to pay more for technically inferior products, just so I can play the tired and overhyped Halo.

These fanboys need to give it up and stop trying to justify their bullsh!t

and p.s. look at all the delusional and butthurt MS Defense Force fanboys

Bimkoblerutso1162d ago

What else is there to get from it, really? You basically just prefer Halo to Killzone and the X1 controller to the PS4 one.

Personally, even if Microsoft's launch lineup was irrefutably superior I would still be going with the PS4. It's just a matter of principles and I think that's the general thinking of a LOT of gamers right now.

Not AAA, huh?

Or a reason for me to get the console.

Destrania1162d ago

This is getting ridiculous. Here's links to the full list of games announced for PS4 and X1 so far. Btw, go with PS4 if you care about consumer focus, most powerful hardware at the best price, and the absolute best, most varied, creative and original games and franchises in the industry (for 3 generations). Quit being deluded naive fools and stfu.

Commandar_Shepard1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

If you're a Halo fan, you should be very skeptical about paying $560 for a Halo game. Do you really trust 343 with Halo enough to make such a big investment? After all, this is the company that gave us:

1) A super linear, as opposed to open level Halo Campaign.
2) A campaign that lasted 5 hours on normal 2 player co-op.
3) A Single QTE Final Boss fight with an enemy hyped up to be this great ancient evil.
4) An awful Spartan Ops Mode filled with areas recycled from the campaign, no challenge (since you instantly respawn when you die there's no need to play tactically), and no replay value (no scoring or skulls).
5) Ordinance/Killstreaks that broke the multiplayer.
6) An insta-kill pistol that you're able to spawn with.
7) Another pistol that makes vehicle usage obsolete when combined with sticky grenades (WHICH YOU ALSO SPAWN WITH NOW)
8) A 3 month wait for a file browser and popular playlists like Doubles and Grifball
9) The addition of CoD perks that also broke the gameplay.
10) The removal of basic game modes like 1 Flag, Assault, Territories, and Juggernaut, as well as great additions to Reach like Invasion.
11) Fewer Custom Games options than Halo 3

I'll stop there, I think you get the point. With 343 in charge, they have a lot to prove before their Halo can be considered something to spend over $500 on.

Irishguy951162d ago

Haha. It's funny Commander Shep, most of the things you mention also apply to Killzone Shadowfall with it's codification. But I agree wither way, I don't trust either company, GG got lucky with KZ2 and 343 cannot match Bungie's greatness

Gekko361162d ago

@Hatsune-Miku This is an opinion piece, it's not spouting truths it's one authors opinion.

I understand that you have a staunch view of console gaming and see the PS4 as the only choice for enlightened gamers, however I must point out that just like you and the author of this piece, 'opinions are like arse holes... everybody has one'.

My opinion on this topic is simple. Both consoles have strengths and weaknesses.

If you ask the question what does one console have that the other doesn't, it looks a little like this..

Sony:

PSeye (Optional - maybe 20% uptake)
Touchpad on DS4
Gaikai Game Streaming
Free games with PSN+
Play as you download

Microsoft:

Kinect 2.0 (100% uptake)
Computations in the cloud for online gaming
Server hosted online games (instead of p2p hosted)
Play as you download
HDMI In (TV)

As you can see they both have some different but equally similar features.

We all know that PS3 had an advantage over 360 in terms of specs this gen but it didn't stop people buying either console in equal measure.

So this coming gen, I personally don't see any reason why this behaviour will not perpetuate.

So really it comes down to what games you want to play and what features you want in your living room.

So from one arse hole to all the others out there, it's up to you.

AngryTypingGuy1162d ago

Microsoft is coming out with all of these exclusives for the Xbox One, but I feel like they're doing so at the expense of the Xbox 360. First party support for the 360 has really waned these past couple of years, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what happened. When the first batch of Xbox One exclusives is released, will they go back to releasing very few per year? And how many will be Kinect games that I have to interest in playing?

Meanwhile Sony is still showing great support to the PS3 even though PS4 is on the horizon, and no doubt the PS4 will have the same excellent volume of first party support. If Microsoft releases first party games more often that Sony does this upcoming gen, I'll be very surprised.

CapsuleMonkey1162d ago

I have to agree, I'm more on the Xbox side of town. Like I said before, MS is already trying to win 3rd party favoritism. They're launching with a 3rd party exclusive for crying out loud. MS still has activision love for COD DLC, and much more. Right now MS has been showing a lot of new innovating features on their momentous service. Unlike the other company I dearly love as well, I can't say the same for them.

Me, personally I'm getting both, but the one is more appealing since I have to pay for both networks now. We already know the powerhouse XBL is compared to PSN so it's really hard for me to just give sony my cash without knowing anything new. Right now xbox seems like the best way to go at the moment.

Dno1162d ago

Sony has just as many content DLC as M$. they have AC4 content and watch dogs.

b3ast1162d ago

lol MS fanboys keep me laugh every day

bjmartynhak1162d ago

early DLC is really so important?

DARK WITNESS1162d ago

and ms started the 360 off with third party exclusives... half of them ended up not being as exclusive as we had been told, so why should that matter this time??

kupomogli1162d ago

@CapsuleMonkey

Like Dark Witness stated, most of those 360 exclusives were later released on the PS3. Additionally, who cares about waiting a month for a few DLC map packs?

You've got to think though. How long are these Xbox One games going to be exclusive? How long is Microsoft's moneyhatting going to last? It was three years before Microsoft stopped buying exclusives, and other than Gears and the few Microsoft releases each year, that's when the support stopped. Starting 2009, Sony started dominating when it came to exclusives because Microsoft just stopped supporting the console.

Darrius Cole1162d ago

It not about Microsoft trying to win third party favoritism. It's about Microsoft NEEDING third party studios to make exclusives for them, because they don't have the first-party studios to make the exclusives they need.

acharlez1162d ago

If only that were actually true...

mcstorm1162d ago

Why do people always say thing like that. MS don't need to pay people to buy there console over the ps4 or Wiiu and the same for the other two.

For me this year is all about the Wiiu and Xbox one as they have more games I want that the ps4 dose. That's the reason im getting a one before a ps4 but other people will feel different Than me. At the end of the day im glad we have Microsoft, Nintendo and sony making our consoles as it gives us a choice and also keeps each one of them trying to out do the other.

Also do you think the ps4 would be like it is if it was just Sony and Nintendo last gen? No console is perfect but we should just buy the one we want to buy and let everyone else buy what they want its as simple as that.

showtimefolks1162d ago

good for you author, its your money spend it however you want

i been with PS since the original and see no reason to make the switch now, MS hasn't supported the xbox360 in last 2-3 years so i am kind of scared they will stop supporting the xbox one few years into life cycle and totally focus on casuals like they did with xbox360 for past 3 years

right now MS is saying all the right things because they want core gamers to buy the system at launch, but their history in gaming has a shacky track record when it comes to delivering exclusive games

also i can spend the $100 i will save by buying ps4 to buy 2 games

walkincarpet1162d ago

But, you'll be buying two extra games on an inferior system. PS4 is PS3 with better graphics while X1 is a game changer. I play on both PS3 and 360 and know that MS tops Sony big time with Xbox live and the controller alone and it looks like that gap is widening next gen with the cloud and dedicated kinect 2. Also, Sony exclusive shooters like killzone are B games compared to Xbox exclusives. So my advice: spend the extra $100, go with the innovative system with the best online sevice, the best controller, and the best multiplayer games first so you will have the best experience in multiplayer gaming available and then play the great Sony single player exclusives later for cheap. You can have your cake and eat if you play your cards right... or perhaps you're not into multiplayer... then PS4 is probably the way go as long as the PS2~3 gameplay is not wearing thin.

PSN_ZeroOnyx1162d ago

@walkincarpet

As soon as you said PS4 was nothing more than a PS3 with better graphics, your uneducated opinion became worthless. So glad you won't be ruining multiplayer on PSN.

showtimefolks1162d ago

walkincarpet

yeh i will enjoy my inferior consoles with some of the best exclusives around, also i will enjoy the exclusive destiny content

B games KZ han? yeh KZ2 to this day is my favorite FPS, maybe if you open you eyes you will see how much verity ps3 offers. But i guess you are like any xbox fans who buy COD,Madden and FIfa

It's his opinion, it's his choice and his money. If he prefers the X1 instead of the PS4, then good for him. Buy a X1.

If you prefer the PS4, then good for you. Buy a PS4.

Sony fanboys get enraged if other people's console of choice is not the PS4 (more precisely if it's a X1). I find this attitude appalling. "If you ain't with us, you're against us".

Yeah. Sure. Because its only 'Sony' fanboys that act that way :/

JunioRS1011162d ago

The thing is, I'm buying PS4 first (BF4/PS4/PS+/Launch/PreOrder), and I hate Microsoft's new direction. But...

I really do like Gears of War, Halo, Forza, Crackdown, Fable, Shadowrun, State of Decay...

I won't be able to skip out on those franchises for a whole generation, as much as I want to hate sketchy, spy-on-me Microsoft.

I'll have to get both eventually.

slimeybrainboy1162d ago

That's so annoying. I've only had a PS3 this gen, but of course friends have 360's. I never cared for Gears, Halo, Crackdown, Shadowrun, but Forza and State of Decay had me jealous.

Being on the Sony side of things its nice that some games come to PC so you have another way to play it without keeping up another subscription, like Alan Wake, Titanfall, Fable, and State of Decay on PC.

3-4-51162d ago

I'm a Halo fan. Skipped Halo 4 though as I just wasn't compelled to go and buy it and try it out. For all I know it could have been the best one, the maps just looked like crap again.

Halo hasn't had good maps since Halo 2 and maybe 2-3 in Halo 3.

Everything else after that is basically amature

Jazz41081162d ago

Not to be bias but I really enjoyed playing halo 4. I played it mainky for the campaign as Im mostly an offline gamer or singlae player. Right now im playing the last of us and its kick butt as well so I would say as a gamer to try and play both if you can even if its a rental.

MELMAN261162d ago

@jackstraw

Get those indies out of there, no one is buying a console because of these indies, let's be realistic here. Take Zuma and golf off of the xb1 side as well. Some of those games are already playable on pc. Stop grasping at straws, after gamescom you may not have to stoop so low.

Dlacy13g1162d ago

Certainly everyone reading this doesn't need to agree with the author, and a good chunk here won't. That said his argunents seemed genuine enough so good for him I guess. I just really don't like seeing gaming sites that review games and hardware making personal choice articles. I prefer sites to be professional and present pros and cons with some insight and some opinion but not full on pushing their own personal opinion as an gospel. I realize too that the author didn't go overboard but the title alone pushes me away.

PSN_ZeroOnyx1162d ago

As soon as he claimed Killzone and Infamous weren't AAA titles his opinion became worthless fanboy nonsense.

avengers19781162d ago

I'm buying a PS4. I don't feel the need to write an article as to why.
If XB1 is your choice, your not really alone... It is selling out of pre-orders all over.
At the end of the day those people like myself that are running out and getting either or both consoles day one are the die hard gaming fans.

Bathyj1162d ago

wsoutlaw871162d ago

Seriously, to anyone who wants to get an xb1 for exclusives, dont be stupid. If you like no bungie halo then thats cool but dont fall for them buying exclusives becase they can not and will not keep it up. Titanfall and the other 3rd party purchased games will end up on ps4. Just look at mass effect and the others. They are just pulling the same thing they did the last two generations. If you buy a ms console, prepaire to have your console no longer supported after the first few years. Just look at xbox and 360 for proof. Sony has new exclisive ips coming out right untill the end. Just dont let the launch bs make you forget about their history.

How dare yorarararahhhhhh. Nah I don't care really If you want to play Halo and the other games are multiplatform then it would make sense to go for the One

"The d-pad is leagues better, and the triggers are as smooth as butter"

I disagree with this about the One's controller. I think the work leagues better is a bit of an overstatement. You may think it is better but leagues????

Also is this really an excuse/reason:

"I don't want six HDMI cables sticking out the back of my TV and a half dozen boxes crammed into my entertainment center."

I was with you up to those two points

it's like people just want to talk stupid for the sake of it...

he is still going to need the half dozen boxes crammed into his entertainment center, and he is still going to need the 6 hdmi cables... he is just going to need everything plugged into his xbone instead of directly into his TV.

I can understand people saying they want it for the games.. but when they come up for points like that it just makes them sound stupid to me.

How exacty is the xb1 supposed to reduce the number of boxes under the tv. It can not replace a cable box. You will need the same number of cables. The only thing its saving you from is hitting the input button. Plus i actually like my cable boxes interface and dont see how a universal box can make it any better. Nothing they showed about the tv stuff seemed like it would be used.
