Which Console to Buy: Wii U, Xbox One or PlayStation 4

TIME - Compared to buying a smartphone or tablet, shopping for a brand new video game console is a tricky task. When you buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, you know you’re getting access to over a million apps and 1,300 hours of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Buy an Xbox One, however, and you’re stuck with three sports offerings, some mediocre family games, and a deluge of formulaic action titles best summarized as Call of Battlefield: Son of Rome. Don’t kid yourself: nobody’s buying the new Xbox or PS4 for the games available today. (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

The best console that is meant for gamers because its game centric first which is the ps4.

Ps4 is also the most powerful console which is good to know it wont be outdated sooner than the rest

The history of PlayStation tells us itll get the most console exclusive games that are highly rated by critics and mostly gamers

We all know the PS4 is a must-have console. WiiU for a second console. Xbone, no.
CursedHero  +   224d ago
Wow! But, the name is XBOX won... Man, I tell bad jokes. Sorry. Semantics, am I right?
LOL_WUT  +   224d ago
Ps4 and X1 are the consoles to choose ;)

Going all Nintendo and Sony this gen.
joab777  +   224d ago
Am I the only person that actually likes the games available for ps4? If I wanted to play mario, I'd buy a wiiU. Oh wait...I have a 3ds. Anyway, what's wrong with AC4, CoD, B4, Killzone, NBA 2k14, Resogun, DC Universe and Flower. Those r the games I have and they all look stunning. The Dualshock 4 is amzing too. What would I b playing on ps3 o wiiU right now? On ps3...I'd be playing similar games that don't look as well with an inferior controller. And now I have it for the future. I don't get the hate!

"If I wanted to play mario, I'd buy a wiiU. Oh wait...I have a 3ds."

Under that logic, why do you own a ps3 or ps4 when you can just own a vita. Same flawed argument.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   224d ago
@NoLogic "WiiU for a second console."

We all know your not buying a Wii U quit lying to everyone.

"Xbone, no."

And since you hate Xbox to begin with Your opinion is super irrelevant. Your comments are just novelty. Lol's and never to be taken serious.

But your great for the fanboys though.
miyamoto  +   223d ago
like the PS3 has the best of Western and Japanese games catalogue that I enjoy today, all I need is a Ps4 for next gen

i forecasted this in 2010 and i was right with ps3
same will go for ps4

PlayStation has the best 1st, 2nd, 3rd party developers support of all the platforms

and Ps4 will amass huge games support faster than PS2 and Ps3 in no time! and the best graphics will be a plus

XiSasukeUchiha  +   224d ago
My top three next gen consoles
1) PS4 Sony doesn't cover up things like M$ Does
2) Wii U important for the console industry as a whole
3) XB1 a very good multimedia device, with decent kinect 2, array of games that are simliar and not really new types of IP, but I'm waiting til console is around $300
TheBurger29  +   224d ago
yea dont get an xbox one.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   224d ago
Wii U + PC.[PC for third party games]
A PS4 down the line once it has better exclusives to play.

That's my plan and it's going to serve me well.

Oh, and I'll never get rid of my PS2 and PS3. Both still have too many games I have not played, and too many I still love...

Exactly the way to go. We'll see what happens with xbone and ps4 but i'll give it a few years and see what games will come out.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   224d ago
1. Xbox One
2. Wii U
3. PS4

Lol, let's see how this goes.

I by no means often agree with TheRealHeisenberg but I do in this case.

Lol, let's see how this goes.
TheRealHeisenberg  +   224d ago
Lol, I guess I had that one coming.
R00bot  +   224d ago
Right now I'd go for the Wii U first because it has the best exclusives, and looks like it's getting even more great exclusives down the line (X, MK8, Smash Bros.). And it's cheap.
Then PS4 because it's getting most of the multiplats and has great exclusives.
Then Xbox One for TitanFall and the inevitable Halo game.

MsmackyM  +   223d ago
So similar except for me; First of the WiiU for pretty much the same reasons, next the PS4 for MGS plus exclusives, then lastly I'm going with the Steambox for multiplats, same price as the Xbox minus the Kinect with better specs and free online.
R00bot  +   223d ago
Yeah, Steambox does look great, but I'd just like to see how they go before buying one, they could flop completely (ouya) and then you'd be left with a console not receiving much support etc.
mrmarx  +   224d ago
THE 4.
Funky Town_TX  +   224d ago
PS4 then Xbox 1, because $500 is too much.
worldwidegaming  +   224d ago
Just buy a Wii U! It has the most games and its cheaper.
By mid spring/summer the great games will be coming out and you can go to any store to pick up a Xbone or PS4.
honestly, only the hardcore gamer should be jumping on board.
The selection on PS4/Xbox is limited.
If you do not own a PS3 I would go with that!
Beastforlifenoob  +   223d ago
Think long term, it will recive no multiplats, everyone who buys a wii u ALSO buys another console for multiplats.

Wii u I guess I have the XB1 so that would do me.
TheBurger29  +   224d ago
i dont recommend an xbox one! i just got mine and the problems are on the rise! kinect is broke, i cant download games off of a disc, and the ui is glitch heaven! i suppose i will get a ps4 sooner than i thought
Beastforlifenoob  +   223d ago
haha problems are on the rise nice pun their mate, nice pun
Chrono  +   224d ago
My recommendation: don't even consider the Wii U.
stragomccloud  +   224d ago
Well that's foolish. It's a fine piece of hardware and it has the most exclusives of any other console. If you can look past the "kiddie" look of the games, you'll find that Nintendo offers THE best gaming experience bar none.
TheBurger29  +   223d ago
too bad its alllll mario
stragomccloud  +   222d ago
One: No it's not all Mario. Two: There are only 2 Mario games on the Wii U: New Super Mario Brothers Wii U, and Super Mario 3D World, and both are exceptional games. What kind of world are we coming to when people who claim to be gamers don't enjoy the consistently exceptional Mario platformers?

stragomccloud  +   224d ago
Well, since I already have an uber gaming PC and a Wii U, I'm good for now. I'll probably pick up a PS4 in another year or two, and then I'll probably get an Xbone another year after that if it ends up having anything exclusive that I'm actually interested in.

By the way, it's ridiculous that the author of this article is comparing clock speeds of one architecture to the clock speeds of another architecture. What an idiot! Looking at it that way, the PS3 pounds into the pavement all of the next gen consoles combined.

The Xbox one is the choice for games and entertainment. The system has more features and multi tasking functions than it's competition.

With the windows update it could unify Pc and Xbox One. Steam gaming on x1 maybe?

Microsoft employee? Sounds like a sales pitch to me.
meganick  +   224d ago
I think he just likes the Xbox One.
first1NFANTRY  +   224d ago
It all comes down to personal taste IMO, but knowing how much variety Sony has with their large internal studios I would easily chose the ps4. Not that the other consoles don't have their fare share of gems.

Playing shooter all the time gets really boring quick.
Sevir  +   224d ago
I personally HATE when NONE gaming Journalist write about video games and gets the simple facts mixed up!

THE XBOX ONE and PS4 GPU clock speeds are NOT 853mhz/800mhz
Their CPU's are!

Either way! this article makes some pretty informed post about each but it is clear that the author enjoyed the PS4 far more than the other 2.

Reason's why you should skip the PS4:
"You’re not a gamer"
"You’re betting against home video game consoles"

Reason's to Skip the XBOX One:
"You’re paying for crap you don’t need"
"Voice commands need work"

lol pretty much sums up how i feel about them both!
herbs  +   224d ago
Those are the GPU speeds -_- 800mhz Ps4 and 853mhz Xbone although the PS4s GPU is more powerful.
The CPU speeds are 1.6 and 1.75 very similar CPUs both use two 4 core CPUs not one eight core and both can only use 5 or 6 of those 8 cores for gaming.

xbox one is the best gamer console of all time

I hope x1 top 360 because 360 is a classic
hatzwontfit  +   224d ago
My wii u and I are getting along famously at the moment. The new mario is masterful, pikmin is great. Wonderful 101 was very entertaining and innovative. I'm waiting for donkey kong along with the rest of the legendary 2014 lineup of games. I'm not really in a rush to purchase a ps4. I likely will get one when infamous comes out though. That game looks like a sure winner

Easy answer to an easy question:

- Buy the system (or even systemS) that offer the games and experiences that most interest you, that you know you will enjoy the most.

- Profit.

Very satisfied with my Wii U and all the great games it has had available since launch.

There's no 1 size fits all perfect console/pc. All are flawed in different ways. Just have to weight the pros and cons.

I approve this answer. This is 100% correct.
