The quick answer to this question is neither – at least not yet.
I know I'm in the minority, but I think it's worth waiting right now. Both consoles have their advantages and disadvantages.
I'm going wait, so most of the launch issues are over. Prob be like next year when I get my next-gen consoles. By the time then the library of games would be a lot better too. Also that's when console bundles are probably going to come out :D
PS4 comes out here in mid-December, so most of the launch issues would have been fixed or eased out. But I'm going to wait, maybe in April or June when Infamous SS comes out, and I've saved extra for a 1 TB HDD upgrade :)
Good point. I did buy it early and waited a while to hook it up. I am though waiting for a better 2TB (the ones available now are crap) to come out or even a 3TB.
Totally. The lack of backwards compatibility kills it for me.
I am grown up you moron. Ive just got back from my 4th deployment from Afghanistan. WTF do you do? Simple replying to the guys statement about waiting to buy a new console you simple minded ****.
i will buy ps4 .... cheaper, more powerful, smaller, best controller ... what i need more than that
I have a PS4, and a friend of mine has an Xbox One. I can safely say that both are not working as us gamers intend them to be used. Waiting on some updates to firmware to fix bugs, and add speed, functionality to the respective systems is important for users to be happy. Waiting is the best option at this point, let us early adopters be the guinea pigs so you don't have to.
I bought a PS4. It is basically playing CoD and Contrast because I already BF4, AC4, and the other multiplats on my PC. I'm not interested in KZ or Knack. Although I might rent KZ since it is supposed to be a pretty to look at game. I'm just waiting all the games to come in. But at least I know when they do I will own the system.
@pat_11_5 I think the dearth of available systems will cause me to wait regardless.
I have a feeling they'll be more in stock before Christmas.
Huh? I don't know what you're talking about. Consoles will be restocked all the time? I doubt there are going to be crazy shortages this time.
I am already buy the most powerful console in the world ps4
shame it can only manage 1080p and 60fps in select games in select modes. If that is the "power" of next gen consoles colour me disappointed.
I have a PS4 preordered for the 29th so i'm just going to go for it. I have the money. I want a new piece of hardware. I want to play KZSF (i'm a fan of the series), and after seeing it at MCM London I want some next gen AC. I'm pretty sure if you had an X1 preordered then you are sitting at home now with DR3 and Forza 5 enjoying your purchase. Some may be able to wait. They are a minority I feel. I'll get an X1 when Quantum Break releases. Gotta love Remedy.
don't fret mate. I've purchased the last 4 gaming devices day 1 from Nintendo and Sony (The 3DS, Vita, WiiU, and PS4). Each one works great! Just purchase the extended warranty if it eases your mind.
Yeah, i've never had a bad experience day one. It was more the games next year that I REALLY want to play so I contemplated waiting.
I'm buying a 2tb hdd and getting my ps4 in jan.
Xbox One at the moment because it does more but will pick up PS4 when Uncharted is released.
That's sort of what I'm thinking. Right now the Xbox One is the better console, if only for its solid launch line-up, but later, the PS4 is probably going to end up on top.
Xbox One vs PS4 vs Wii U. People always forget the Wii U, but it's got, and is getting more, compelling software from first and third parties that are worth a look at.
Neither of these consoles are powerful enough for me, I have been gaming on PC on 1080p for the last 4 years at 60fps and when these consoles can only manage that barely in 2013 that is bad. I think I will just upgrade my PC this time round at least until these systems get a string of killer apps.
Stop with these silly articles, telling people not to buy consoles on a gaming website.
Xbox One - the best place to play Titanfall. :)
