Xbox One vs PS4

Andrew Williams: "The Xbox One and PS4 are almost here. Before the year is out, both consoles will be out. And what shoes they have to fill. The Xbox 360 and PS3 have both sold over 75 million units, and have been around for the best part of a decade. The Xbox One and PS4 will define the future of home console gaming. But which one should you pre-order? We've compared the two consoles to help you make the right decision." (PS4, Xbox One)

It depends on who you ask. Some people might say the Xbox One is better while some people might say the PS4 is better.
ShugaCane  +   494d ago | Well said
Then it's all about the arguments you're going to choose. Does the X1 has more to offer because it has more features ? That's very debatable. The PS4 is a more powerful console (fact), many devs have praised it (fact), Sony supports Indie gaming (fact), the games (revealed and to be revealed) are more appealing (opinion), the PS+ is a much better service (factual opinion). I think both are great systems, but I've made my choice for those reasons.

Look at the Xbox fanboys running to non gaming features as the reason Xbox One is better. I can watch my tv through Xbox, so what, and all of these "features" that most Xbox fanboys are touting are behind a paywall. Meaning you have a internet connection and buy xbl gold before Xbox One is even relevant compared to PS4. When it comes to games, hardware and value, PS4 smash Xbox One. MS tried to screw you and then changed their entire vision for Xbox because of Sony. Xbox One is a big joke to me. They're still revealing key things about Xbox One months before release due to the massive 180 had to pull.

It certainly does depend on who you ask. If they're a sheep who blindly follows whatever Microsoft does out of sheer fanboy mentality, they're buying the X-bone.

If they're anyone else, they're buying a PS4.

@ gaming101. I choose both. Your comment in very insulting, but your probably a pro-activ kid right now who cannot stop masturbating. So I give you a pass this time. X1 has features that will please a lot of people, and will also play amazing next gen games. PS4 will play amazing next gen games, that will also have plenty of great features too. I also guess you will miss out on great games. As for sheep, to be honest, Sony fanboy sheep here easily out number everyone else....

vulcanproject  +   493d ago
Games matter the most. Its that simple.

PS2 became the biggest selling console of all time because it had more of the best games. Having DVD playback contributed a little, but Xbox had that. Price helped a little, but PS2 was not always the cheapest console either, Dreamcast and Gamecube were cheaper, Xbox cost the same after 6 months or so.

No, it wasn't the media features or gimmicks or the price, it was simply the games. PS2 sold way faster than PS3 and 360.

If one machine has more of the best games and multis, it'll be the one to get first.

H0RSE  +   494d ago
But even still, this is largely opinion, seeing that X1 will also have exclusive titles. Furthermore, many players care little for exclusives, with their decision for purchasing a console being for other reasons.

Choosing a console for games and choosing a console for exclusive games, are not the same thing. For many people, removing the exclusives from both consoles, would have little to no effect on their gaming activity, so in this regard, the question of which console offers the "best" games, isn't even a deciding factor.

If that was the case wouldn't be a console war. Everything you said is the exact opposite.
H0RSE  +   493d ago
@Cable

I'm not really seeing what you're saying. The exact opposite would imply that many choose which console to buy based on the exclusives they offer, and if that is what you are saying, I'm not denying that. Yes, people do this, but it isn't a case of "one or the other," since both scenarios exist.

As for the basis of having a "console war," there are a multitude of reasons, one of them being really no reason at all. Just the act of choosing one thing over the other, regardless of any real justification or not, is enough to make a person defend their decision. Why do people have wars in general? Well, without getting into the political and financial implications, it basically comes down to disagreements and difference in opinion/beliefs.

People will defend anything - blue is better than red, chocolate is better than vanilla, etc. it really doesn't matter how important or trivial the subject is or the reasons for defending it, people will do so out of pride, ego, and even ignorance.

They don't want to feel as though their choice is the "wrong" or "inferior" one, and become emotionally involved in heir decision/opinion, sometimes to the point where they are more concerned with how others view their opinions and choice(s), than how they view their own.

Are we still hung up on the effing power brick???

Serious question:

WHO FREAKING CARES??????

Why in the world does that power brick matter to anyone at all? I just don't understand the logic of making that a negative against the system.

It's something you'll plug into an outlet and never touch again, what difference does it make?

I don't understand you people, I really just don't. If it was the size of a suitcase I might see a problem, but Jesus Christ it's a little 6 inch long box that you can hide behind the console and never see again.

The stupidity on this website makes me insane.

ShwankyShpanky  +   493d ago
Since you apparently are incapable of comprehending why anyone would consider the brick as a negative...

My issues with the power bricks:

1) I game in three rooms at home: living room, bedroom, office/studio with projector. Oh, and my conversion van (not much room for extra bricks in those van compartments either). Since the PS3 uses a standard non-proprietary power cord, I can leave power cords plugged in in each room, and I don't have to dig behind furniture to unplug from the wall when I want to move my console. (bonus: PS4 uses the same power cord as the PS3 slims)

2) I take my console with me on business trips. Would rather not have to pack along another brick (neither PSU nor Kinect) as well.

@kickerz I'm not so sure XBL is gonna be such a superior online experience next gen.

Granted it was better (by better I mean more reliable in terms of stable online connection) on the 360 than the PS3 but the PS plus has given more value in terms of free games than XBL gold has, for me at least.

I agree Cyanide85 ps plus does offer alot of free games.To be fair we wont know which console has the superior online till they both have been out a year or so.. so I will admit im wrong. But mircosoft has spent billions on their network so im just putting 2 and 2 together.
Death  +   493d ago
PS+ needed to give away games to gain subscriptions. How many here would subsctibe if it weren't for those free downloads? With a requirement that 100% of gamers that wish to play online pay for plus, what is the incentive now to gain subscriptions? What games will we get for the PS4 with plus? People are assuming way too much next gen. The only thing we know for sure is Sony placed online gaming behind a paywall. We have no idea what plus will be on the PS4. Giving away games early in the lifecycle is suicide for a company that needs these software sales to offset hardware losses with a small user base.
DigitalRaptor  +   494d ago | Well said
And when 95% of those features (free on every other platform) that the PS4 also has (Sony has all this media/non-gaming functionality too you realise?), are locked behind a yearly pay-gate, how is the XB1 relevant to any self-respecting gamer?

Then you get the disingenuousness of this company:

Why are Microsoft forcing you to have the Kinect camera connected and always-listening for the console to even function? This is a console that can be turned on without the Kinect and can be navigated without the Kinect. So why does it HAVE to be plugged in? Hmm I wonder why?

Why can they not ship the Xbox One console without the DRM attached, that requires a day-one Internet enabled patch? They can upgrade the GPU before launch, and they can work on the OS before launch. But they can't take out the DRM before launch? Hmmm. I wonder why?

Why can't they just be upfront about these things? Is there something they don't want us to know that we are actually required to figure out for ourselves?

However things go, if you choose to support this company yet again, you're going to learn the hard way, I can tell you that.

I think people are buying Xbox One purely on how much they enjoyed the 360. That's a mistake. Also if you haven't noticed Microsoft has taken this Kinect thing way too far.
p0tat0stix  +   494d ago
@GraveLord

Some surely, but not all. I myself was seriously considering going with PS4 until MS reversed their always-on policy. That put the two consoles back on a level playing field.

But sure, if the original Xbox followed by the 360 were so great, why wouldn't I assume the new one would be any different?

As for the Kinect, MS is allowing developers the finally experiment with a technology by guaranteeing it's use. If they had backtracked and mimicked the PS4, the tech would have most certainly been put on the backburner until the next generation. They are making a huge investment in the future of gaming, and if it's successful, PS will have had nothing to do with it.
kickerz  +   494d ago
Well said potato stick. All Microsoft has ever done for me is offer me great gaming experiences. Fun online gaming too. Xbox one day one for me. But I have respect for Sony gamers too. PS4 looks like an amazing powerful console and i know you guys will have a hell of alot of fun. If I had time to commit to both I would.
Benchm4rk  +   494d ago
I am too puzzled as to why it can't be shipped without it. Surely they could include it on a disc that way people with no access to the net can install it. Me and my bro are both getting one at launch but he will have to bring it past my house when he picks it up to use my internet to download the patch. Not a huge fuss but still seems unnecessary
Consoldtobots  +   494d ago
I remember warning people on here around the start of this current gen that they would be sorry for giving MS a foothold in this industry much less put them in a dominant position. The ironic thing is these fools showed the consumer their true colors before they ever reached that point of market dominance. People reacted like MS was the kid at school who just dropped a load in his shorts in the lunchroom and scattered in every direction. I will say it again, YOU DO NOT WANT THIS COMPANY WITH ITS CLAWS IN A FUN PAST-TIME LIKE GAMING because they will do everything they can to ruin it and completely obliterate gaming as we know it. I still remember the days when the thought of paying for multiplayer would be considered absurd and a rip-off yet look at where we are now. Paying for functionality that was considered a NORMAL part of the purchase price of a game is now an added expense. What will it be tomorrow?

Can to enlighten me of these feature you're referring to?

I don't really care about TV. I prefer the much more powerful console that will be supported with quality exclusives the whole generation.

I could list many many more reasons, but a lot of people of this sight have proven they don't care about games and keep defending a company that will pursue money at the expense of customers so I'm not going to bother.
H0RSE  +   494d ago
First off, the "naysayers" are approaching the TV integration form the wrong perspective. Xbox fans aren't boasting about the TV feature yet PS fans always bring it like they are. For many, it isn't so much about wanting to watch TV on your console vs not, it is more about it being a nice feature - of a convenience rather than a deciding factor or marketing point, and regardless if you are interested in the feature or not, I think we can agree on the convenient factor.

And even in the case where people are looking forward to it in the way anti-MS fans seem to imply, so what? Are they not "true" gamers for seeing it this way? Are they not "hardcore" enough for you? The fact that *you* don't realy care about TV, doesn't mean jack to people that may.

Second, just drop the "more powerful console" line. Unless system specs and hardware performance was your deciding factor, then don't even bother. Using this line implies that if xbox was sporting the more powerful hardware, (on paper only mind you) than many of you would have chosen that console, but that isn't the case, since if xbox was powered by a supercomputer powered by cold fusion, many of you would still choose PS4.

If system specs or the "more powerful console" reason/excuse held as much merit as some of you imply, you would all be choosing PC over both consoles. The line is just used to taunt and gloat.

Finally, the "quality" exclusives line...it's entirely opinion, but yeah, nice touch to fan the flames...

"The x1 has so many features over its competition that it has more to offer."

Doesn't that depend on what kind of features a person wants?

I haven't watched traditional TV in years and don't plan on going back to it, so a huge chunk of One's features are useless to me. As a guy who uses his big screen for games and movies, and has no interest in having a cam on his console, PS4 is clearly the way to go for me. The decision is easy even without taking into account that I prefer Sony's exclusives over MS's.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   494d ago
The hdmi input is not just for cable/sat boxes it can be used wiyh any other devices that has an hdmi out such as desktop pc, laptop or videogane systems.

"The hdmi input is not just for cable/sat boxes it can be used wiyh any other devices that has an hdmi out such as desktop pc, laptop or videogane systems."

That's fine, but that wasn't really what I was talking about and I don't have anything I want to hook up to my console anyway. My desktop has a huge screen and I mainly use it for running Pro Tools and related software so running that though my TV would be useless.

If I want to do some basic web surfing I'll use the PS4's web browser, which is usable without paying anything extra unlike One's... at least that's what I read not long ago, but I've been offline and visiting family for about a week so maybe things have changed.

As for hooking another console to my PS4, I don't care about that either. My PS3 will go in my bedroom and probably not get used much. I don't generally look back and play games from a previous generation once a new gen starts.

Killzone: Shadowfall don't interest me to much it's a pretty game for sure but the gameplay looks bland IMO. Driveclub I want even go there. Knack isn't my type of game. Infamous: Second Son looks amazing but that's the only game that interest me "so far."

Dead Rising 3 looks really fun to me since I like zombies. Forza 5 looks amazing. Ryse: Son of Rome looks great if its not as much QTE as we seen so far. Titanfall looks very fun. Sunset Overdrive is most likely a game I will like "waiting for gameplay" and last Quantum Break I'll have to see more before I make judgement on that game.

So yes Xbox One games "interest me more"

I think we're going to have a very lopsided generation this time around, which is actually the norm.

There are only two times in the 35+ year history of console gaming that a generation has NOT been lopsided. The first time was SNES vs Genesis (SNES won, but not by a huge margin). The second time was last gen when no one console dominated by a huge margin.

But other than those two instances, there is a console that dominates by a very large amount, and I think we'll see that again this time around, too.

With both consoles being so close in specs and each basically having the same games I really don't see this gen having a huge lopside at all.

I think this gen we will also see both consoles being very close in overall sales.
dedicatedtogamers  +   494d ago
"When have specs mattered?"

Hasn't that always been the war cry?

Specs didn't matter with the Saturn vs PS1 vs N64. Specs didn't matter with GCN vs DC vs PS2 vs Xbox.

Why would the close-ness of the specs this time around somehow equate to the sales also being close?

Just curious, because if the specs are so close, I see the opposite result: people will heavily favor one or the other based on other factors. After all, why spend $100 more if the specs are pretty much the same? Or why settle for less when One has better camera integration? (Or whatever else ends up being a pivotal selling point this gen)
maniacmayhem  +   494d ago
Specs don't matter this is why both systems are almost basically the same. There won't be a huge difference in the game library either except for the exclusives. And to be honest exclusives from both don't even make up half of their existing library.

I should have also said graphics, with the graphics being nearly identical for each system.

With Saturn/PS1/N64, the obvious choice was PS1. Only because the graphics looked amazing for it and the Saturn was hard to find and the games for it at the time were not nearly as appealing as the PS1 games. The n64 I did get, but I knew it being a cartridge based console it wasn't as good as the PS1.

"GCN vs DC vs PS2 vs Xbox."

I think specs did matter with this competition, PS2 flaunted out the gate with DVD playback which killed the Dreamcast (among other things). Xbox was technically superior then all of them but came out later and lacked the longevity of support from MS. it never got the legs and traction it needed. As for GC, it was better than PS2 but lacked the DVD features and the huge third party support that the PS2 had.

Both companies want your money and Sony would love to include all the extra stuff behind a membership, but they have to stay competitive.
Every playstation fanboy always said that sony would never charge to play your games online and look at it now. Whatever they are offering with playstation plus doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things to most of us when given the choice to play online for free or pay with benefits of ps+ we would all choose to do the former.

no.. they proved they listen to customers and try to provide them what they want.

yes.. they CLEARLY hate gaming when a x1 games won best in show at e3, games shown generally look and run better blah blah blah... another topic beaten to death..

take away comparatively unpopular f2p titles and indies, and ms has more exclusives on top of better quality..

my opinion, sure... but my opinion means more to me then yours.. and there are plenty of people pumped for x1 to launch.. we are the people they are pleasing..

nobody cares if a sony fanboy isnt turned to the xbox side... if they gave it away for free, you'd complain you have to pay the taxes on it..

so why even bother trying to please someone like you?

Can't we just wait until the consoles to actually arrive and benchmarked, all features and games announced before doing this again?
Tctczach  +   494d ago
No. That would require logic.

The one with the more mature fan base wins. That doesn't go and bash another console when their console has nothing to do with it. That doesn't cause a big fuss about the best unboxing video. You know who you are

It is great to have competition for PS4, just dont see why people keep bashing on Xbox saying it should be like exterminated or something. Many people don't realize that PS3 wouldn't go as far and reach new heights like it did without a great competitor like the Xbox 360, can you imagine how it would be like for PS3 if Xbox wasn't here we'd be stuck having the Wii (which to be honest is not my cup of tea) as a competitor lol. For me the PS4 is a better deal for my standards, but Xbox One is not too shabby, but I am sorry to say a lot of people on N4G are fanboys. Not enough fanboys on the other side to balance it out lol jk, but it would be cool to go back to being gamers instead of ruling out competition and having respective arguments here and there, without releasing fanboy rage.
etownone  +   494d ago
Bashing Xbox is what N4G is all about.

I know I'll be getting Xbox One Day One. Looking forward to Next gen. Can't wait.
Ragthorn  +   494d ago
That's good man, I am not getting any console day one, because I wanna see how they all perform before finalizing my choice. Still have a lot of games on Steam to play (Steam Sales lol) so I'm fine. Can't wait to find out what happens to each as they're released, really exciting.
Funantic1  +   494d ago
I'm waiting for the X1 too. I noticed that if I disagree with a Sony fanboy it'll give him one disagree but also one agree. It makes it look like he has way more agrees. Has anybody else noticed that? It has done it plenty of times when using my iPhone on this site. They should really fix that if it's not intentional.
n4rc  +   494d ago
ive said it countless times..

i prefer xbox.. but playstation has its benefits and nobody should have their intelligence questioned for picking one or the other..

competition is what its all about.. they are competing to please us.. nothing bad about that at all..

but having said that... blind fanboys are hilariously pathetic and the fact that me choosing xbox pisses them off so much is just icing on the cake for me.. lol
Rageanitus  +   494d ago
ppl should really stop with these articles. A true representation of a console in 1.5 > 2 years after it is launched
christrules0041  +   494d ago
Aren't people getting tired of these articles by now? I read tons of articles but these ones have been going on so long it's stupid. I don't even read the articles like these ones anymore. Just bored of them. When the consoles were first revealed yeah sure but this has to be like the 500th one I have seen.

Microsoft vs Sony rivalry is stupid. Sega vs Nintendo and Sony vs Nintendo rivalry was better then this.

Is funny when people say they hope MS burns in hell however they are still using Windows lol. I agree this rivalry is stupid. But I do admit that MS made a bit of an ass at their XB1 reveal, but the E3 showing really helped them bounce back.
stage88  +   494d ago
PS$ wins everytime for me, no competition at all.
Manic2014  +   494d ago
In the end it will all come down to the games, I'm thinking M$ have something To rival PS+ in the forthcoming Gamescom but thats a small percentage chance. in the next 2-3 years both consoles would have sold great but i'm guessing PS4 will have the lead. As of now SOny just has to keep doing what they are doing right now but MS needs to show they will support their console's to the end and support the core gamers and also provide some more privileges to the XBL Silver Members
the_hitman3000  +   494d ago
It's funny to see people argue over what system is better. I am a PS fanboy pretty much but my best friend is a huge Xbox fanboy and while we do argue which system did better this gen. Me and him both agree that both are good and Microsoft and Sony are not holding back this gen. Hell we are glad that we got the other company to give our systems competition so they are forced to try out do each other.

People should stop let the systems fight out this new gen and lets just see how it ends.

This is how is how fans are with the ps4 vs xb1 articles.

Not at all. People argue about games not coming to their platform all the time. It sickens me.

I will get an X1 on release, not for features, but for games. To me & my opinion the exclusive release games are more to my liking.
saber00005  +   494d ago
Gaming console. What is better for games. PERIOD. Enough with the stupid feature BS. It's a gaming console. Do you honestly believe that you'll use those "features"?

Enough said.
PositiveEmotions  +   494d ago
Yes i will use those features because to me the ps4 is not just a gaming console but its also a social media console as well
saber00005  +   492d ago
Highly unlikely after a month.
cedaridge  +   494d ago
I would say PS4 is more cost friendly than XB1. But it doesn't matter i'm getting ps4 1st and xb1 later.
#fanboy is so old school!!!

Yet another ps4 vs xbone comparison stop just stop its getting old SMH
Theendgame  +   494d ago
It's great to be a gamer. We are so diverse and love playing video games. Some people may enjoy what the Xbox one offers, others may not.

It just like how some people like digital downloads and other like physical copies. Some of us love online Mp and others enjoy a nice single player experience. You guys see what i'm getting at? We may not all like the same console or games,but we love gaming!We are not enemies! So Xbox one or Ps4 it doesn't matter.

*Thou shall not raise thy controller in anger against another hardcore gamer.
Now let us go fight the true enemy, the casuals.

Tired of these articles. They're always fan bait laced with agenda.
Blackcanary  +   494d ago
I'm not gonna get an Xbox One. I don't see the point of having two boxes to watch TV on. Sony had play TV on the PS3 which allowed you to watch free view on your ps3. Didn't see the point cause i had my Sky box. Yea it has all those TV features then there's Skype but I'm sure if PS Vita has Skype which it does then the PS4 will end up having it to. A application that i never use on my vita and which i never use on my imac. God i had it on my iphone and i never used it so i deleted it.

Its a damn gaming console we was happy when the PS1 and PS2 never had these type of features. I just feel like there to much fuss about the xbo being a huge multimedia hub. Funny thing is the PS3 was class as a multimedia hub. And i only used it for gaming and watching films. So looks like I'm going back to owning 1 console like i did with the PS1.

Ether way which ever console you get enjoy and game no need to put people down because there fan boy or fan girl or they have a different preference to you. Some of u lot on here really need to grow up.
