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.
I chose Xbox One because I wanted to keep my gamearscore and most of my friends are on Xbox Live. I t also has the games I want like Halo, Gears of War, Fable, and Crackdown. Every choice we make involves tradeoffs between one option over another. At least for me, the Xbox One offered more of the things I was looking for in a console and that's why I went with it over the PS4. By the way, I would like to see more people upgrade their consoles to current-gen systems so we can finallly start moving forward instead of constantly looking in our back mirror to make sure no one is left behind.
ps4 nuff said
That comparison started good and quickly got weak
This article is poorly written. Gaming Worm needs an editor.
Been with Xbox since dream cast died and it will remain that way don't think I will ever own a PlayStation I just don't have enough game time.
You could if you got rid of the Xbox and came to the better side of gaming. Sony and Nintendo combo is always a winner (Nintendo for local MP and Sony for all else)
Better for YOU maybe. Who are you to say Sony is better for him?
Better side is a state of mind I like xbox franchises not a hundred uncharted or killzones could replace my forza , halo and gears joy had a N64 before the dream cast just never felt the need to get playstation , plus people never shut up about it.
I was always pro xbox... have 33k gamerscore while 480 trophys on my psn acc. Right now i choosed the ps4 because my friends are playing diablo3 and destiny on. The ps4 is in my eyes a huge step forward... cant believe how fast the OS runs compared to the ridiculous ps3 system... cant believe how many ppl bought a ps3 last gen if i compare the system to the 360. The most ridiculous thing about the ps4 is the battery life of the ds4... 6 hours?? hello?? Sony forces ppl to buy a 2nd controller, i will buy my one by the end of this month. Overall the ps4 is a great system with a great design.
Did someone say Halo???? Xbone for me.
might wanna wait for reviews instead of blindly following a franchise lol
Halo Metacritic scores Halo CE 97 Halo 2 95 Halo 3 94 Halo ODST 83 Halo Reach 91 Halo 4 87 Lol Buying a Halo game if your a fan is a pretty safe bet it seems.
Yea...you better off buying a new and unproven IP like Destiny...right!? Oh wait..😬
I can't wait to play the Master Chief collection. All of those maps on one disc is going to be awesome.
PS4 is a no-brainer at this point. It's more powerful and has way more exclusive games coming. But if you like Halo and inferior multi-plats, buy a XB1.
This guy is full of crap!!!! First they are the same Price, n 2nd I own ps4 and X1, without them trying to put pics side to side, gamers can't tell the diff in the two systems, our eyes can not see it
build a PC, then get real next gen experience.
Its a very easy decision. PS4 has the most first party studios, the best console version of multiplats, the most value in its online subscription, better hardware, smaller profile along with no power brick, and they didn't try to force force an always on camera and DRM down our throats.
Some mistakes in that article. Firstly not everyone prefers the xbox controller. I've got both consoles but definitely prefer the ds4. Secondly why didn't the journalist mention the fact that the ds4 can be used on a pc? Sure ya could use the ds4 on a pc before the x1 controller had the ability. Oh and my psn and xbox live names are both razrye, that's for people that don't believe that I've got both.
My outlook on it is that I have an extremely powerful PC, so I'm not going for which is faster and has better graphics. I'm looking to get the most for my money. The issue at hand is, which exclusives do I want to play more? One one hand, you have the Halo games, which I love as well as several others. On the other, you have the Uncharted series and several others, which I am interested in, just haven't played. I am also unsure which of my friends have which console (military, so I don't get to talk to them often). Tough decision, but I have until the end of the year to decide so I get the best deal I can get. Eventually I want to have both though.
No help. PS4 wins, PS4 is the only with future.
I bought the Xbox One cause that's the system I prefer. Doesn't mean I wont ever own a PS4 though. Owned a PS1 PS2 and still own a PS3.
PS4 is the better choice
For now, there is no reason to own an Xbox One. However, game like QUANTUM BREAK gets me excited. What matters actually is the overall experience. That includes gameplay, graphics and story. Multiplayer-only games like DESTINY and THE DIVISION should not include single-player experience, I guess. So, story does not matter.
Only an idiot would think the Xbone is better than the PS4. PS4 has: More games BETTER games Better value Better controller Better features Better specs Still waiting for a reason the Xbone is better. Let me guess an Xbox drone is going to say Xbox Live because of the "hack" that happened a while ago when they don't know the difference between a hack and a DDoS attack. BTW Xbox Live has been hacked AND hit with DDoS attacks as well.
More games / True BETTER games / Opinion Better value / Tie Better controller / Opinion Better features / False Better specs / True
Get whatever console you want based on your personal preference. If someone try to put you down for your personal preference, give him/her both middle fingers in the face Stone Cold Steve Austin style.
