PlayStation 4 vs. Xbox One: The winner is …

GamesBeat's Dan Hsu: I only have two hands and can only play on one system at a time. So where am I going to spend my hours? And which console would I end up recommending to a friend? I decided to break the two down and compare them in a few categories that matter the most to me. (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

Depends. PS4 looks like it has a promising future, but X1 is promising straight out the box at launch. There's no messing around with X1 when it comes to exclusives.

X1 will continue to dominate in exclusives going into 2014 with plenty in that year alone and no gap in exclusive releases throughout its life-cycle. I can bet X1 will compete with PS2 as the console with the most AAA exclusives. By the way, did you see Titanfall?

Why would I go by last gen when I can go by this gen?

Since when has Xbone had better exclusives? It's always been PS with best exclusive hands down. Think you need to go back and look at last gen a little better.

"Why would I go by last gen when I can go by this gen?"

Maybe because we're not even a month into this generation? Maybe because we have years of last gen experience to draw from when it comes to forming comparisons?

Just thoughts...

morganfell  +   813d ago
The surprising, or rather unsurprising bit concerning this article is the fact it was written by Dan Hsu, one of the most well documented PlayStation haters in history.

Within 4 months of the PS3s launch magazines like EGM and it's resident editor Dan Hsu were publishing pictures of the PS3 on the cover with a tomato slammed against it asking what went wrong. He even wrote in his column that he laughed when he showed Sony execs the picture of the cover. Remember that the PS3 actually outsold the 360 at launch yet no one was publishing a picture of the 360 with a tomato. And they didn't put the 360 on the cover with the RROD debacle at it's zenith.

No other game console ever had to cough up a billion dollars for a defect but Hsu let them slide.

That's Dan Hsu. Worthless regardless of the year, the generation, or the console he backs.

I put no more stock in what he says now than he said then. But the fact remains he has an established history of such actions and as such should be disregarded no matter his line.

X1 fans and PS4 fans need to straighten the hell up and go after the real issue affecting the industry - reporters, magazines, and websites that exist only to serve themselves.

Listen everything is subjective
Sony fans going to say ps4 and xbox fans are.going to say X1
But the clear winner in launch lineup exclusives is X1
That is a fact
Exclusives that will eventually come years from now is different but as of exclusives you playing thiis weekend X1

Sure the X1 will have some great exclusives for the first couple of years and just like the 360 gameplan, we will all be left twiddling our thumbs with no exclusives while MS focuses on Illumiroom instead of games.

Clarence  +   813d ago
What the hell are you smoking! The PS4 has plenty of exclusive down the pipe. The only console to compete with the PS2 was the PS3 and now it will be the PS4. Whoever voted your comment well said must be smoking to.

By the way did you see infamous SS

No QTE or hand holding in this game.
How about the order, Drive club, uncharted and many more. Sony fans know that Sony will keep the exclusives coming unlike M$.

If you're going to lump in titles like Titanfall as "exclusives" for the Xbone then It's only fair to throw in:

Warthunder, Warframe, Blacklight Retribution, DCUO, Outlast, Don't Starve, H-Hour, FFXIV, Contrast, Hotline Miami 2, The Binding of Issac, Diablo 3 (hasn't even been mentioned for the XBone,) Guns of Icarus Online, Transistor... I could keep going, there's at least 2 dozen more I haven't even mentioned, that could be considered PS4 "exclusives" by your logic.

All this and not a single mention of Sony's first party development studios who've yet to reveal the games they're working on...

You were saying?

dmeador  +   812d ago
Lol, Sony fanboys out in full force, with no logic to back them up. Cant say I'm not surprised. When we let the games speak for themselves, its still not enough. Right now the X1 has better games. No one that ins't a Sony fanboy will admit that. The cry that "well in the past x has happened" might be true, but for the present tense it isn't.

I'll be playing on the X1 come Friday, and you kids can waste time trying to figure out a way to warrant your bias. Dont care much either way. If you come up with a good reason for me to buy the PS4 before next holiday I'm all ears. I love games and have the cash, just dont see any reason to use it for Sony's console right now

morganfell  +   812d ago

That is part of Hsu's erred reasoning is that a winner is decided over a single game. He has the thought process of a dullard. The value of a console and leading a generation is determined over the breadth of the gaming experience rather than the merits (or lack thereof) for a single title.

Yes when you been saving up and buying studios since 2008. Your going to see alot more exclusive IP this time around. Micrsoft knew they were weak last generation with exclusive IP, so they are looking to turn that are this generation.

As a playstation loyalist I will admit Xbox does have a good line up when compared to ps4. However as a Playstation Loyalist I'm willing to bet that the people supporting Sony know who will get the short end of the stick when it comes to AAA quality exclusives. I like many others can wait for the quality games that SSM, ND, MM etc. Will bring to the next generation hardware. Even though Microsoft is building their own exclusives one can't simply assume they'll be of quality since they don't have nothing that was amazing under their belts. Microsoft big franchises weren't handle by first party studios so that says a lot. But yea the Future for great ps4 games is just around the corner with Infamous SS, Drive Club, The order etc.

dmeador  +   812d ago
Sounds like you are putting words in his mouth. Wanting competition mean he wants both to WANT to be first. In a marathon if someone knows they are 4 minutes ahead, not near as much incentive to push yourself as if you can feel the other guy breathing down your neck.
Hicken  +   812d ago
Now we get to the heart of the matter.

See, people have a misconception: competition makes things better. Well, that only works if the competition is worthy. If you line Usain Bolt up in a race against middle schoolers, they're still his competition; just not very good competition.

In other words: your competitors don't have to be as good as you for them to still be competition. And as long as you have competitors, it's a competition... just not necessarily one worth watching.

What people want is GOOD competition. That's what they speak of when they say it spurs innovation and all that. Cuz that's true: when your competitor is close to you in ability, then you push yourself to be better.

Even then, there MUST be a winner and a loser, often multiple losers, sometimes multiple winners. So if he wanted a competition but no winner, then he wants at least one loser, implying that he's throwing his hat in the ring for whoever DOESN'T win.

Well, whatever.
FlunkinMonkey  +   813d ago
These comparisons are the dumbest thing i've seen in 'journalism' for quite some time. Get a grip authors! Go and do some real journalism. Comparing winners over a healthy rivalry that will last for 10 years, within the first wk of their release, is just straight up stupid.

Video game journalism is a shabby piece of shite of a sham. Good luck to both consoles, i look forward to seeing what they both produce in years to come.

Future predictions are shit and don't make sense. Titan fall is another shooter, honestly there's just too many one the market. And I respect you controller opinion but I thought he gap between the first bumper and the Rob button was big and uncomfortable. Also the controller is small, I think the 360 controller is better. Good article but it's all opinion based. In my opinion Sony camera is better than kindest because it's limited, it doesn't distract from the games. Just playstation back to game. But that's up to the consumer I have no use for voice controls so limited is much better for me.kinect is cool to show off but being useful Sony hit home without being confusing. It's up to gamers I'd say but the big hit app is resogun
D-riders  +   813d ago

I think both companies will be fine. A lot of gamers that I've talked to are only afraid of the Xbox failing on them, other than that both companies are fair game.

I personally will get both, but the only thing I do not like about Xbox one is that most games are coming to PC....

I understand people preferring a brand,but come on Sony fans be happy for Xbox one fans and vice versa......why. Because if Microsoft and Sony has to fight for your hard earned cash then they FORCE one another to be better. Think of it this way,if Sony sold its gaming division off and the big M bought it what would happen? Microsoft wouldnt have to try very hard to get your other words they wouldn't be forced to be innovative-they could have went with DRM(what are you going to do go to Nintendo) the gamers voice would matter less because there would be nowhere else to go console wise. I have a Ps4 and so far the games are so so in my opinion. Sony games like the last of us and uncharted and god of war will be awesome I'm sure.....BUT Xbox one has the better launch games. Exclusive wise it's really to early to tell. Titanfall is big. Uncharted is big. What exclusives will be announced at 2014 e3? That's when we will REALLY see who has the best over all games. I hope it is a brutal fight the whole generation so you and I have the best games ever!
