My son will turn 16 next week. Xbox One and PS4 are both doing fine so far. Which console should I chose for him as a surprise? It is really getting confusing.

lebr0n872d ago

Number talk, PS4 is doing better.

SonyWarrior872d ago

short story, ps4. long story, ps4.

chrismichaels04872d ago (Edited 871d ago )

Both systems are good. But I would personally recommend the PS4.

- The PS4 has a much larger community than xone (so chances are he might know more people with a PS4).

- PS4 has the 2 highest rated exclusive games (The Last of Us Remastered (95) and Bloodborne (93).

- PS4 has the best videogame baseball series on the market today MLB The Show.

- PS4 has a solid lineup of exclusive titles that span all genres (Ex: Infamous Second Son, Killzone Shadow Fall, LitleBigPlanet3, DriveClub...etc)

- PS4 still has the deepest library of quality indie games

I never understand why people dont just ask their kid.

Silly Mammo872d ago

I guess you missed the part about getting it as a surprise.

But he might want to ask the son's friends or the friends' parents what their kids have.

WeAreLegion872d ago

You can't go wrong with either, honestly. I prefer the exclusives that are out and coming out on PS4, but many will prefer XBO exclusives. I do enjoy them both though.

I'd ask him.

Stiffler872d ago

Honestly ask your kid. You're only gonna find opinions online which is fine but your son's would be more relevant.

CobraKai872d ago

Odds are, he wants it to be a surprise, which is why he's asking here. If he hasn't dropped hints, you can't go wrong with a PS4.

dolphin_supreme872d ago (Edited 872d ago )

Get a ps4. It has every genre and more stable third party games. But try to get hints out of him like what games he liked etc. either way I'm sure he'll enjoy it :) lists some nice announced title for you to get an idea of what types of games will come out for each console.

PS anyone who is going to reply and debate with me just know you're going to waste a comment. I'm not responding. just disagree and move on.

What does his friends have

ctmaudi872d ago

Exactly, if you cant ask him, just get what he can play with his friends on.

supersonicjerry872d ago

well, i would say ask because i'm sure he would want to play with all his friends.

TheOnlyMastrx872d ago

If you want it to be a surprise and give him the choice by asking him, take him shopping with you stop by the consoles and ask him which he wants.

holysmokesbatman872d ago

Xbox seems to have the most popular exclusives so far this gen, I don't see that changing anytime soon.

holysmokesbatman872d ago

Not delusional, I should have stated, it's a personal preference...
It's easy to forget what people are like on this site.

Both are doing good, PS4 has the edge but you should probably try to find out what his friends have, my best friend and a lot of my friends have the X1 I tried to get them to PS4 side but no success, so I will eventually get the x1. I don't enjoy playing on my own that much anymore so playing online with my buddies is a lot more fun then graphics.

orakle44872d ago

If he has friends that play, ask one of them, or figure out someway what all his friends play, then get that system. If he doesn't play with friends, pick whichever.

DarXyde872d ago (Edited 872d ago )

Best advice I can offer:

Buy the Playstation 4. It's more expensive than the stock Xbox One. That way, if he wants to exchange, he can do so before opening the PS4. BAM! You surprise him with a console, either he's happy or a bit disappointed which can easily be remedied with a receipt and good will. Everyone wins.

Freeball872d ago (Edited 872d ago )

Whatever his friends play on. That's the most important aspect.

EDIT: If the friend's aren't a factor, then PS4

etownone872d ago

Ask him.....

But Halo and Gears of War are favorites and can only be found on Xbox.... and those are my kid's favorite games.

I have both .... He never touches the ps4

But in the end ... your son will want to play with his friends... so, whatever his friends havery is what he most likely will want

bwoodling872d ago

PS4, unless he is a HUGE Halo fan. Other than that, PS4.

MMOBytes871d ago (Edited 871d ago )

Which console do his friends use? "Now"

Randostar871d ago

Find out what his friends play on. If they all have PS4 get that, if they have Xbox get him that.

Is the PS4 community active in Hardline like BF4? I hated the beta but I'm willing to try it again if there are tons of people playing.

edgarooo872d ago

Never knew this site exists. Numbers are higher than BF4 :)

Can I Price match games at Target before using B1G1 50% Off?

Tom87872d ago

It depends on the store. Some reported it worked, while others reported it didn't.
