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.
Number talk, PS4 is doing better.
short story, ps4. long story, ps4.
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.
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.
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.
Honestly ask your kid. You're only gonna find opinions online which is fine but your son's would be more relevant.
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.
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 :) listwars.com 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
Exactly, if you cant ask him, just get what he can play with his friends on.
well, i would say ask because i'm sure he would want to play with all his friends.
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.
Xbox seems to have the most popular exclusives so far this gen, I don't see that changing anytime soon.
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.
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.
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.
Whatever his friends play on. That's the most important aspect. EDIT: If the friend's aren't a factor, then PS4
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
PS4, unless he is a HUGE Halo fan. Other than that, PS4.
Which console do his friends use? "Now"
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.
Oh yes. http://bfhstats.com/
Never knew this site exists. Numbers are higher than BF4 :)
Can I Price match games at Target before using B1G1 50% Off?
It depends on the store. Some reported it worked, while others reported it didn't.
Ok thanks, I will give it a try.
Any one played Battlefield Hardline? Is it better than Battlefield 4? It got a lot of criticism last year, some stated it looks like a DLC.
Wish I had the money to purchase those deals.
Kingdom Hearts is on sale. Does it go on sale often?
No, has been for $29.99 for long time.
Almost all stores get B2G1 deals, B1G1 % Off except Amazon. Why?
I keep wondering the same.
Wow a lot of console deals, Amazon PS4 deal is epic.
Two of the best games ever made for PS4, awesome deal!!!
Kinda wished they packed in the CE version of Bloodborne instead of the extra $20 GC now seeing that is in stock.
Hardline or Advanced Warfare? Which one is a better FPS?
Depends, I've been a cod buyer for a while. I just recently boought hardline and I prefer it to advanced warfare (I don't think I like the exo suits). Both are fun in their own way.
Advanced Warfare all day long, Hardline is sub par. I'm a big fan of both series, hope that helps.
Many great deals for this week, thanks OP
PS4 The Last of Us Bundle w/ Extra Controller & Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare or PS4 The Last of Us Bundle w/ Blooborne and $20 Gift Card?
Time to get New 3DS XL.
I'd like to try watchdogs on wii u, but for two problems. I can't find a local store that carries it, and it still costs more than any other versions. I would prefer a download, but am looking for sub $20. Its still 60 on the eshop.
Considering the age of most of these games and/or other products this aren't very good deals in my opinion. Props to the website for gathering this information though.
EDIT : meant to be a reply. Started its own standalone post for some reason.
That PS4 Bundle is awesome.
Oh boy. I'm going to be broke if I see something some awesome deals. And I just got paid recently. >.<
Pc gamers be like damn, that's so expensive! Steam ftw but really good for console game prices though! I saw the sale on target. Hopefully this means better prices are coming for consoles in general.
It depends if he had a 360 or ps3??? If he had a 360 get him Xbox one, if he had a PS3 get him the ps4!!! If it's his first system get him the Xbox one way better user friendly then ps4... Guys disagree all u want to,..I have both n x1 is way user friendly then ps4... I know this by watching my 6 yr old grandson use both....
