GGG writes about which system, both on sale for $299 with at least one game, you should pick up over the other this Black Friday.
The one you want
How about the one that allows you to play ALL the big holiday releases? Battlefront Fallout 4 Halo 5 TombRaider Forza 6 etc And, of course, the one with FREE Backwards Compatibility, really great for ppl moving to a new console and still loving their previous gen library. @Septic Yes, I assumed we were talking about currently available games, I won't make another list but Quantum Break, Scalebound, Forza Horizon 2, the next Gears (to new a few), all make 2016 look like another great year for gaming.
No, septic had it correct. The one you want. Holiday releases means nothing...its the games you want no matter when they released... Both systems have had great games come out the past 2 years so I suggest you look for the system that has what you want in all...not just in a season. You'll never go wrong if you ignore hype and actually get what you want. Also you made a suggestion for all systems...halo forza TR are for xbox.. you can get battlefront, and fallout 4 on ps4 and free TRUE and more BC games with the wiiu....so confusing.
Or the one that will allow you to play: Uncharted 4 No Mans Sky The Last Guardian Horizon etc It all depends on your tastes.
Meh, Uncharted 4, The Last Guardian, The Last of Us 2 (possibly), Horizon, etc, beats those games out. And I don't need BC if I already played countless of games on my PS3 and that system has triple the exclusive games compared to Xbox 360 anyway lol.
Yes I for one love the new backwards compatibility and playing some of my favorite last gen games like fallout 3,mass effect and dungeon siege 3. Only a matter of time before skyrim added I have all the dlc for it to :)
Yeah depends on what you want really. And the kinda AAA exclusives you're more into. As long as you're having fun gaming thats all that matters.
The one that I want? You are the one I want Ooo-ooo-oooo, honey
I knew it. Pre-order confirmed. http://replygif.net/i/1125....
another one.... as a man who already owns the XO. I might just capitalize on getting a PS4 whilst all the deals are happening. If you're starting afresh, you might have a tough choice to make. xoxo
That's true last year PS4 was a clear choice (hey I jump on the hype train too and no AAA titles for 2 years), This year XBO takes the cake.
The one that you can play Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5 and Forza 6 right now on Next year depending on how Uncharted 4, and a few other games pan out i might add a PS4
Huh? If you are choosing a platform I'd recommend looking at the whole lineup of games not only the games that came out recenty. Also I'd look at the upcoming games as well. There is no clear winner here as both consoles have a good lineup.
I already have Xbox One and I'd suggest someone looking to buy a new console to get it based on its library so far
Playstation has over 600 games in store, not including psnow 200+ games 52 of the 600 are free games....Xbox has 322 games total add bc 150 (rounded up) you you still have less. So yeah library would damage your argument too.. It should be get what you want not get what library size is....you didn't ps4 has the bigger library of games and has the bigger upcoming games too. So if you like the exclusives on xbox get a Xbox if you like the exclusives on ps4 get a ps4.. but make sure you research and get what you want. I wont even get into power and performance because that's a whole other can of worms. I'll just say they cost the same and get what you want...if unsure then research, or get the one your friends have....something but don't go off industry lit hype. Consoles should be looked at buy not only what fames it has but what games are coming in the future and both....no all three consoles have great games coming...get the one you are attracted too most.
@thrash That's a lot of words to say 'PS4 because it has 600 games and I prefer it'. Simply put, chose the platform which appeals most to you and don't let anyone decide for you.
Objectively, based on library alone, you should be recommending a PS4, followed by a Wii U, which has full BC with the Wii. Obviously, if you prefer certain series that aren't available on those consoles, you go with the one that DOES have them. But if you're suggesting a console to a gamer that doesn't have such preferences, that just likes to game, it's hard to argue against a console that's bordering on twice the size of the competition's, especially when a few legends will be gracing it that just aren't assured to be releasing elsewhere, as well.
your suggestions actually fit the pc platform more so than any console. steam has more active users than any of the consoles, the pc has a larger library than any of the consoles, the pc also has the ability to carry over previous bought games to new pc's. thanks for the suggestion.
What if you want to play Bloodbourne, Until Dawn or Dragon Quest Heroes? I'm with Septic, buy the console you want on Black Friday if you haven't jumped into the current gen yet. Both offer great games and features. At $299 it's a great time to become a multi-platform gamer too.
both if you can afford it , if 1 then xbox one for sure!
both if you can afford it, if 1 then get the 1 that has the most games that appeal to you...
y so much disagrees....its factual, the hates strong here
It's very clear. A decision should be made based on your tastes. Both are cheap enough that price should not sway anyone either way, and both have a good selection of well-rated games.
Buying my third ps4, have no need for xbone, and nevel will. Game on fellas.
Ah man, now we have to subtract 2 units every time Sony announce their sales figures. The ones ChronicPsycho cuddles in bed obviously shouldn't count. Way to make things harder for everyone, man.
How about both ? Because i think both systems are pretty good. I hate this debate. Back in 2013, it was PS4, but now it's just about both of them. Play game on your favorite console. That's it.
@Volkama i have both actually. Well, i bought them one by one, no rushing. Just wait enough for my money enough stock to buy. First one was PS4 and then Xbox One. Of course, i'm mostly play my games on PS4. Not saying Xbox One is bad, that's just my personal taste that all. No hard feeling, pal. And yes, fanboy is stupid. We should choose which console we want, not forcing the other.
I have both and both cater to me. I primarily game on Xbox One but when Xbox One slows down I play the PS4 exclusives. Overall its a win win situation. At this point and time in the generation you should choose on the overall titles the system has not what came out this year but the overall lineup you feel will cater to your needs with single player and multiplayer.
Either where your friends are playing, the games library that appeals most to you, or which interface you prefer. All of the above are pretty handy if you need to decide on only one of the two but I say own both and experience the best of both worlds =)
I don't click links much but the title says "This Friday" The last 5-10 years I don't really keep up with holidays, so at 1st I thought "This Friday" is Black Friday lol
How about the one you don't already have?
XB1 for sure. Why not?
get the console that interest you, at the end of the day its you 😟who will spend the time and money. There are reasons why you dont buy a console at launch and wait for this kind of deal,and one of that is because you are short on budget. So more likely you wont buy much of the games until it went on sale right? you will probably end up with 2-3 games and the time playing would be crucial as well and dont forget you need to pay for online as well..so decide and be wise🤔
If you want to have fun this holiday look at the games that are out and appeal to you the most
Another Fanboy beacon article, no click from me. Choose the console that lets you play the exclusives you enjoy most and/or the system your mates play on. If neither of these things matter to you i'd personally get a PS4, it appears to be getting more attention from 3rd parties. I guess due to the larger install base. Only my opinion guys.
Playstation 4, it's the solid console that will provide a great 2016 2017. But if you enjoy Xbox games like Halo ot Forza then it's obviously going to be Xbox One.
I believe both consoles gave us enough games through 2015. If you like interactive games, action adventure and JRPG's go with PS4. If you like Shooters, Action Adventure games and Racers go with Xbox One. Both supply great Indies. Both are going to have an amazing 2016.
Wanna have fun this holiday?Xbox One Wanna have fun every holiday for the rest of this generation?PS4
Lol always awaiting greatness huh.
Turkey sandwich or ham sandwich ? which one should you pick up for lunch ?
I'll just pick up a turkey ham sandwich instead.
I have all current systems. However if incouldnonly choose one it would defiantly be XBOX ONE.
You should get Xbox One. Xbox typically has better deals/bundles than PS4. Xbox One also has better multiplayer games than PS4. You can always get a PS4 later, once their big games start coming but as of right now if you skip out on the PS4 the only real exclusives you will be missing out on in the next year would be Uncharted 4 and Horizon.
I have both, ps4 from day one and xbox about 2months. If i had to give one up it would be ps4.
