Gaming Worm Says: So you may got you hands already on Playstation 4 or Xbox One, but for those who are still holing one reason or another just like me. So we are showing 5 reasons to decide between XBox One and Ps4.
I liked the information about size and image resolution difference in the article.
Do you want a next Gen experience or a last Gen experience with updated hardware?
I know you are just a troll but how exactly is the Xbone a next gen experience and the PS4 isn't? There hardware components and architecture are very similar. Just that the PS4 has a superior graphics card and superior ram. Everything else is software. What ever the Xbone can do the PS4 can potentially do it better. Ever since the consoles have been released Microsoft have done everything they can to make the Xbone the same as the PS4. From Price to policies to removing Kinnect. Now the Bone is just a poor imitation. Why would anyone want a poor imitation when they can have the real thing?
I want lots of exclusives, unfortunately thats something X1 cant offer.
Let me guess, you're talking about Kinect, right? Bwahaha. Even MS has zero confidence in Kinect. Take away that from the package and what do you have? A weaker PS4. Have fun deluding yourself into thinking that controlling your dashboard with your voice = next-gen. On topic: Whynothaveboth?.gif
Watercooler' I'm fairly certain the PS4 can't run background stuff at the same time. With x box 1 you play a game and use the internet at the same time or watching a video on twitch or do something else. The console allows you multitask and you don't have to shut down one thing to reach the other thing. Microsoft will be first to show off the first cloud powered game on console. Sony hasn't the infrastructure in place to do the same thing. So just like x box live, Microsoft will be ahead of Sony with this too. Microsoft has HDMI out can use your tv or pc while you game on x box 1. Other than that both consoles are not that different from each other.
Both are good consoles, my advice is if you plan on getting an XBO get it during one of these promotions. If you have a MS store around you call and ask are they still doing the trade in Promotion (7/14/2014 - 12/31/14 but store can change dates). Trade in your 360 (or PS3, but I don't recommend this with PS+), and save $100 off the XBO. Making it $299 w/o Kinect, and $399 w. Kinect. They also have the current promotion of buy an XBO or XBO bundle, get 1 game free, and a $50 gift card / XBL points. So if you combine both promotions you're getting: $299 XBO bundle + 1 game + $50 gift card / XBL points. (Wii U price) $399 XBO Kinect bundle + 1 game + $50 gift card / XBL points. Both are great deals IMO However, if you can't take advantage of the promotion in the MS store than I advise you to wait until Black Friday and see what sale comes, and if nothing just ask for a gift to your local store that sales the XBO, because if sales of the console aren't up consistently Jan - February, then the XBO is going to get a real price drop in March (tax season), and you should be able to buy a bundle for $329 - $349. 1. MS Store promotions, get it now 2. Wait until Black Friday 3. Wait until March - April for a real price drop The PS4; however, you can get anytime. It's not going to have a price drop, because it's selling so well so you're just going to have to get it at $399 (although rarely I've seen $379). Wait until Black Friday if you can for a bundle, other than that it's not going down, until possibly holiday 2015.
@knws actually the ps4 can multi task. If you're playing a game and decide to watch something on Netflix or browse the Internet you can cus it suspends your game.
@KNWS Who the hell plays a video game while watching tv, while checking the internet while doing something else? You'll end up like this http://youtu.be/z2iku7pkbf0 Besides, it takes the same time to pull up my phone or remote controller than it takes for Kinect to understand what you are saying
@thewatercooler Does the PS4 turn on your TV when you want to use it? Does it suspend/resume games? Will it give you a notification when your multiplayer game is ready to play? How bout threaded messages? DLNA support? Can you adjust your TV volume on you PS? Can you plug in an ext HD and run your games off of it? The games look great on both consoles but it is the plethora of extra features that xboxone brings to the table that make it feel like a nextgen console to me
@Yetter Again, most of those things can be dobe with a remote controller
@KNWS "I'm fairly certain the PS4 can't run background stuff at the same time." You're wrong. While a game is running, I can hit the "PS Button" and look at live PS4 streams. While i'm looking at streams, the game is still running in the background. Once i'm done watching a stream, checking out Amazon, or watching Crackle, all I have to do is hit the "PS Button" again, close the App I was running, select my game, and i'm back in the game, right where I left off. I'm certain of one thing, you don't know what you're talking about. @Yetter "Does the PS4 turn on your TV when you want to use it? Does it suspend/resume games?" Yes the PS4 can power a HDTV on/off when HDMI control is enabled from the settings menu. What exactly is the use of having suspend/resume when you can pause a game? I'd say that's a useless function, like voice commands.
yeah, the author is a true moron. he barely understands these two systems himself, it seem. yet he tries to validate his reasons on complete obvious points. that's like looking at a blue sky and telling everyone its blue. what about everything else? ....and please. like i've said many times before, the DualShock 4 completely annihilates the XB1 controller TECHNICALLY. this isn't even a contest. but all he points out is a dang Tpad. like really? comfort is a complete opinion and one that is obviously ruled out by the many individuals who has used both of the controllers. so i find his points holding very little substance when giving a reliable comparison for others to go off.
My PS4 arrives Wednesday. Now working on getting an XB1.
One of the easiest decisions of my gaming career: PS4.
Career! LOL M$ made the decision for us all! Get a Ps4!
I love how this gaming site has an image of the XB1 standing up after Microsoft came out saying DON'T STAND IT UP. lol
Ps4 all the way.
It's all about the games. Xbox has some great franchises like Halo and Gears PLAYSTATION has God of War and Uncharted. I'd go a little further to say Playstation has better exclusive single player experiences while Xbox has better Exclusive multi-player.
I don't get all the hate from the good old FB's... Each system offers something unique.... Most importantly ,Both offer Games......... and more.
Easy...it is all about preferences in games and services you like. Just like android phones are more powerful than the iphone but it is the ecosystem like ios, apps, and software that just work is why some people chooses Apple over Samsung. For me the constant updates to the OS and upcoming games like sunset overdrive, Horizon 2, Killer Instinct season 2, and MCC really is the deciding factor for me to choose the XB1 this year even though I'm a primary PC gamer.
Let me Juxtapose what you just typed... Apple Specs may Seem lowly compared to Android (not just samesung) but its in the OS & Hardware working in Harmony... iPhone Specs may suck compared to Quad/8 core processors, but they can still whip their arse in all general day to day tasks. After all, A bit like PS4 and One... One or other has Better hardware, no doubt, but if they don't utilise it properly through software , whats the measured difference? Thats where the Bone is at... Slim code..... Accessible and streamlined. Made for the Machine... PS- Point is, don't write apple off as thats exactly where MS wants to take you.
"However, Xbox Controller is more on quality and used on Pc games too. Xone controller is more comfortable than using Dualshock." I have to disagree with this portion. DS4 is simply the best game controller ever made and it's also a lot more innovative than Xone. The speakers, improved gyroscopes, microphone jack on the controller, lightbar, touchpad, grips improved triggers, it's a very phenomenal game pad. While in some ways to me the xbox one controller feels downgraded from the 360's and hardly anyone uses an Xbox one controller on PC because Microsoft only just recently made the drivers available and not all games are compatible so that's a big fat lie. PC gamers are still using 360 controllers. Personally I prefer the 360 controllers over the XOne's as it has a more premium feel where XOne's feel cheap in comparison, however I do like the rumble motors.
Just read the first one and they kinda implying PS4 has got overheating problem just because of the size while Xbone hasnt. Whole article seems really simplistic. There I give you 5 reasons: Playstation 4 - Xbox 1
Xbox one, Superior controller, online network and operating system, EA access, More 1st and 3rd party exclusives. PS4, 3rd party games running a little better, Naughty Dog games, remote play if you have a Vita, Quantum Dream, thousands of indies. Both have good things going for them.
bro whats so good about ea access? will you really play madden 14 if 15 is out? do you really think ea is nice enough to put madden 15 on free list month after it comes out? 3rd party with microsoft is joke.. you know that.. but ill let you feel better.
Good try, come back with better trolling when you have more bubs.
Superior controller my ass. DS4 awesome controller also touchpad and speaker really make it stand out. More 1st party exclusive for Xbone? you kidding? obviously you dont know what you talking about (Quantum Dream?)
PS4. Same online network in a man's experience (not literally but same quality), a man prefers PS4's operating system and UI and controller, don't care about EA access (suddenly EA isn't evil now that they have something exclusive to Xbox?), and Xbox does NOT have more first and 3rd party exclusives (PS4 has twice as many games out already lol). Also Quantic Dream. Also they have waaaaaaay more than those 2 studios (didn't even mention their most successful franchise in GT). Sorry this is hands down PS4 for a man but don't state your opinion as fact on things like controller, online, and operating system.
all that matters is games and right now PS4 has the games I want to play.
I agree, However we are also wrong. Its each to their own, and thats fair enough.
90% of the AAA I play are multiplateform. I chose PS4 because they have a ton of small indies comming out all the time to entertain me between the AAAs. I love to remote play on the vita and PS+ is amazing. I'm yet to find a reason to get an X1.
for the ps4 was clear as i been playstation only gamer since ps1 day.. did get dreamcast but went back to ps2.
