Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One do battle with eight-core AMD technology.
Whichever one you're buying. I'm buying both.
Bought one, waiting to buy the other. I hope there's no lag when I input my ps4 to the xbox one.
getting PS4 first then when sunset overdrive and quantam break comes out ill get an x1
i am going for Wii U and PS4 this gen. i want the resolution, the power and the first party awesomeness. if people are gonna enjoy x1 then it's good for them.
PS4 is better... Sincerely, Captain Obvious
unfortunately there's a small latency, from what I've seen, it's about a quarter of a second, just enough to make games less enjoyable.
That clickbait title...
abzdine: Exactly my thoughts :) I've got absolutely no need for the X1 now that even multiplatform games run better on PS4.
Now that's a win win!
So... both are better than the other?
@GreenRanger so you get both consoles and pinkRanger (Kimberly Hart) as well ?! you lucky bast*** i hate you :P
My God. Santa's good to you! This being the best option if you have the throw-away income. Sadly to say I don't. But overtime who knows, I might get the XB1 if the exclusives from MS win me over. ; )
From a completely objective standpoint, the ps4 is far better.
Ps4 better price,better games,only online play is locked behind the paywall,better support and its built for the future.
i have ps4 its ok mate but not that good.online lag all time god help us when its world wide be a joke.never mind xbox hear on friday get some proper online gaming done.maybe one day ps4 will be better online.
mrnice Had a look at your comment history and every single one of your comments are about how the Xbox One blows the PS4 out of the water. Do you actually have a PS4, or do you just say that to make you sound like an unbiased fanboy? Let's face it, PSN is leaps and bounds over what it once was, and is at least on par with Xbox Live at this point.
Never understood these "XBlive is better than PSN" comments.... I've used both and tbh once your in a game playing, you couldn't tell one from the other. Never had a problem with this so called lag etc from PSN except when using the store. That seems to have been fixed and you get way more with PS+ I dont see the supposed advantage?? Can anyone enlighten me?
Better games? The best launch game for PS4 is Resogun, an arcade game... Killzone shadowfall had the worst Killzone campaign yet, I didn't think they could top how bad 3 was but they managed. The MP has been incredibly CODified since 2 so lets not even go there. Sorry but Forza 5, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 all look a LOT better to me as a hardcore gamer than Knack or Killzone. Il take a brutal Ancient Rome Story over a once good sci fi shooter dumbed down to entice the COD crowd in.
In your opinion, and you are welcome to it :)
It's a fair point. But I still have issues about Dead Rising being next gen. Im not saying its a bad game. Forza, going by previous iterations seems to me an incomplete game rushed for launch. What's there looks great but there is not much for the gamer. Ryse is a game I'm interested. But going by what I've seen, it seems pretty repetitive. If the combat/tactics were more variable it would easily be my most favourite launch game. But they aren't IMO. Never the less, enjoy your gaming ; )
@ Majin-Vegeta SING IT SISTER *Clicks fingers and shakes head*
don't be silly /s
Poor Wii U I feel so sad for it.
For me no doubts: PS4. I still don't see anything that grabs my attention on the other one. Who knows if in the uture i'm going to get an XboxOne Slim or something, when they cut the price or so. But even in that case if i don't like the Xbone games, i use that money to get PS4 games.
What grabs your attention on the ps4 right now killzone?
the thing that grabs my attention on the ps4 is the huuuuge potential and the fact most multiplats are better performing, even the frame rate dips in cod arent there after patch , yet the xbone version is still 720p and looks like a 360 game. So thats one main thing for me , better multiplats, then there is the fact we all know PS4 will deliver on the exclusives as they have done for 3 full gens in a row , and MS havent for 2 in a row. how many reasons do you need thrust ?
Yes, KillZone, Resogun, Knack for a good co-op with my wife (whatever ppl say, i like it), the f2p (tried warframe, not bad and i like Blacklight Retribution). Without counting that my friends are going to get the PS4 too, so i can play online with them too. And there are games my wife is interested in, like Octodad, Hohokum and those. I'm not the kind of person that lists the games of the system, it's something i don't like, but since this time someone asked me this is my answer. It's even a bad period for the money, so if what i get is cheaper than something else, it's a plus. And i'm just saying what i like for NOW. Future is different. PS4 exclusives are the best ones for me. Did i mention that everything i say it's "for me"? I'm not saying anything bad about the other consoles.
I'm buying both. Later. Ps4 and Xbox One good console.
The xbation fwun *just felt like trolling*
and you shall be bubbled down for trolling
@Nancy I doubt it
Ps4 day 1, xbox one in or around feb/march
Playstation4 without a doubt. *better hardware *sony's proven long term support *proven award winning first party studios *ps+ provides great value Thank you Sony for designing a console centered primarily around "GAMERS". Thanks for the correction shivvy :) bubs for you.
What is this, a spelling bee class? Lol just kidding mate. =]
This. I'm a gamer and my priority has always been the games and Sony has ALWAYS delivered amazing experiences for the life of the console. I know not everyone's like me, but considering the abysmal support MS has given to the core gamers in the last few years on the 360, I'm surprised the xbone has so many preorders. Oh, and I'll be enjoying noticeably better 3rd party titles for the entire generation. That's a huge factor right there.
The one that suits your needs is the best choice for u. If u can get both, u get the best of both worlds which is what i plan on doing but i'll wait until the xbox one drops to $399. I just dont see the need for kinect imo. Others may enjoy it but im not coughing up $100 more for a camera I didnt ask for in the 1st place.
I've come to the conclusion that its all about choice.
They're both on par so far.
Only the xbox one is getting better reviews
And the PS4 is getting significantly better performing 3rd party games right out of the gate.
@ Thrust Ehm no... they are pretty much the same... Some like the PS4 reviews are biased, and some are honest.
ps4 for me for sure. launch lineups mean almost nothing to me personally, as ill need only a few games to keep me occupied until i feel ready to pick up some new releases. (not that either of the launch lineups have been great). what does concern me from beginning to end of a consoles life cycle is price and tech specs: 2 things ps4 has the upper hand on at the moment. On a side note, i hate when users take it upon themselves to be peace makers on this site by saying "fanboy wars are stupid I'm getting both consoles" do you think you're Gandhi or something? NEWSFLASH: that doenst make you unbiased. that makes you awful at spending a good amount of cash.
Maybe sum ppl are tired of seeing the same bickering from all sides & just want a mutual conversation. I dont see whats wrong with that.
Yes Master, Exactly, peacemakers are boring.... console wars are fun And no im not being sarcastic .... console wars/competition makes things more interesting. The day every gamer starts patting each other on the back and being mutual about everything, is the day i'm outta here. BORING
Seeing X1 reviewing better than PS4 by gaming sites is sickening really, Sony made the console gamers and developers wanted, it outperforms the Microsoft machine which is running "next-gen" games at 720 20 fps and is focused more on "TV and other media functionality" than games itself, in top of that it requires Kinect which was hated by most gamers, and still, gaming websites are praising it and putting it above what Sony delivered (at a hardware level), not to mention X1 is $100 more expensive.... I truly don't understand the logic in america, or maybe I do $$$$$$...
Notice that most reviews of the XB1 are praising its multimedia functions rather heavily. It's not being reviewed as a gaming console. The interesting thing is how the PS3 was bashed to high heaven for being multimedia focused.
PS4 will be my main gaming choice for the future. XB1 will only be for exclusives.
PS4 here, I can only afford one really, but I'd love a Xbox for Forza. Enjoy whatever your choice is.
Hmm, actually I don't think I'd be missing much.
When a new console runs an old game like Call of Duty at 720p while the other cheaper console runs it at 1080p I think its pretty obvious which one is better.
Very obvious , have you seen AC4 with the 1080p patch on the ps4 ................wow ! that wont be happening on the xbone tho lol
the one with the most exclusive games and studios
Common sense and logic. Intelligent thinking.
The one that has the games YOU want to play
I will most likely end up with both consoles eventually but PS4 comes first for me. I guess I'm still kinda worried microsoft won't deliver enough first party titles to satisfy my everlasting hunger of exclusive content. Ryse does look pretty nice in my opinion considering it's a new IP but I'm more worried about the future. Sony proved to me this gen that they have the exclusives and that's where it counts.
Getting Both for their exclusives... Not gonna compare the power unless its for multiplatform games ,then ill get most for ps4.
