PS4 vs Xbox One - Which console will rule next-gen gaming?

GamesRadar - After nearly a decade of playing Xbox 360 and PS3, the "next-gen" platforms are now officially "this gen." Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4 have been released into the wild, joining Nintendo's Wii U in the ranks of the eighth console generation. Tensions were high, what with the two most recent systems launching within a week of one another. But now, the dust has finally settled, and the lines have been drawn. The new console war is well underway, which begs the question: who's winning?

"who's winning"

Cute that the silly site pretends there is some sort of uncertainty.

The PS4 is already already around six million consoles sold and Sony still has the Japan launch to look forward to in a couple weeks.

The PS4 is sold out almost everywhere and when new shipments come in they are bought almost immediately.

PS4 graphics are running at 1080p with graphics that are not matched on any other console.

While the Xbox One is is getting crushed in sales by the PS4 and is in stock in virtually every retailer.

The PS4 has strong support from all three major console regions: Japan, the US, and Europe.

Sony has the largest and most diverse first party developer lineup. A first party developer lineup that is bigger than Nintendo and Microsoft's combined.

Xbox One graphics capabilities have been a massive disappointment with the system unable to run games at 1080p without being severely downgraded like Forza. Or Forced to run at last gen resolutions.

The Xbox Europe head just was fired.

The Xbox One is 200 dollars more expensive than the massively more powerful PS4.

Microsoft has given up on Japan.

Microsoft shareholders are calling for dumping the Xbox.

And most importantly, the Xbox One doesn't have the luxury of the RRoD fiasco to pad out installed base numbers by tens of millions of consoles from Xbox fans buying new model after new model hoping to finally find one that works properly.

Yeah, which console will rule next-gen gaming???

Just like almost every other ps4 fan, you mentioned everything but the reason we buy consoles, GAMES. So far XB1 has offered the best variety of launch titles and will have the better 2014 lineup. Basically ps4 fans bought a new console to play old games (ps3 games and indie titles). What is funny is that ps3 gamers ridiculed the 360 gamers because of cycle of old games as opposed to new ips. This year Sony will release 3 staple playstation games, infamous 3, uncharted 4 (if 2015 that makes 2014 even worse), and mlb, while Halo 2 anniversary (rumored)and Kinect Sports will be the only staple xbox games. The XB1 lineup for 2014 is basically all new games Ttianfall, PvZ, Project Spark, D4, Sunset Overdrive, and Quantum Break >>>>>>> deep down, the order, drive club, and a bunch of random games no one has ever heard of. In 2015 Xb1 will have Fable Legends and Halo 5 and in 2016 GOW and Crackdown 3, while the only big title left for ps4 will be tlou sequel. Ps4 fans are only looking at the now, but as these games start coming out, watch that gap shrink. MSFT put 1 billion (1/15 of Sony's worth) into games and it's showing, as the have invest more into internal development. This gen Xb1 will have better games than the ps4.

Yes, I didn't mention GAMES except where I mentioned GAMES:

"The PS4 has strong support from all three major console regions: Japan, the US, and Europe."

"Sony has the largest and most diverse first party developer lineup. A first party developer lineup that is bigger than Nintendo and Microsoft's combined."

So Playstation owners get:

% The largest number and most diverse first party exclusive games

% All multiplatform titles

% Sony's incredibly indy friendly PSN titles

% And all the amazing Japan titles that will never appear on the Xbox One.

% And the massive PS1, PS2, and PS3 libraries of games through direct emulation or streaming

Whereas with the Xbox you get:

% Microsoft's tiny number of first party developer titles

% The same multiplatform(lower quality) games you can get elsewhere

% Downgraded PC ports that anyone can play with a decent home PC

Man you must be smoking some good ish.

OT:PS4 will simple as that

Crystallis1562d ago


you xbox clowns were saying that same crap about games last generation, and we know how that turned out don't we?

You can't rush greatness. You will see the games Sony will release in due time.You xbox fans always worry about now rather then whats to come in the future

Clarence1562d ago (Edited 1562d ago )

Stop it.

The PS4 will win. Seach your feelings, you know this to be true.

MysticStrummer1562d ago

Just like many other XB1 fans, you ignore reviews and take your own opinion as fact when talking about lineups. PS4's launch titles were better reviewed and future lineups are entirely speculative and subjective. PS4 has more announced, so all this "PS4 has no games" business has already gotten old and sad. Carry on though, since I know it's all you're got.

Boy do I wish you could reply! Those magic mushrooms have really done a number on your brain. Are you new to gaming? I'm not one for writing long list of games, but going by Sonys extensive history, when has Sony underdelivered when it came to games!? Never.

Now I'll ask you the same question concerning Microsoft! Going by Microsoft's history when have they underdelivered when it came to games!? Uh, the original Xbox, the Xbox 360, and more than likely the Xbox1 once they get comfortable.

Since you're in the Know as far as what Microsoft has slated for release and you can set your watch to their release schedule! I'd thought I would give you a tidbit of information concerning Sony. By the account every 1st and 2nd party involved with the PS4 has something in development slated to release soon, whether announced or, unannounced.

On Xbotic fanboyic argument's term PS4 already won next gen the moment M$ revealed that Xbone will use Blu-ray discs because you xbotrons were spamming N4G that Blu-ray have no future against DDL games. But guess what M$ betrayed your wild imaginations and dreams! KAput!

Blu-ray is is Here to Stay ... even more longer thanks to M$!
Now kneel before your new master,loser.

Lee...your thinking is Majorly flawed. It's okay to accept that while the PS4 is selling or sold out that there are people who are buying the XB1.

It's okay to accept that the PS4 has the better specs and cheaper price and that people who buy the XB1 are also buying games for it.

It's okay to accept that Sony is poised to launch in JP soon and that MS has yet to even hit any of the markets the PS4 is selling well in.

Competition is a good thing so you can accept that too. No one is taking away your PS4 so you can relax and breathe. It's okay.
