With the battle between Microsoft and Sony entering a new phase thanks to the release of PS4 Slim, PS4 Pro and Xbox One S, Express Online has decided to look at the big differences between the Xbox One and PS4, starting with Sony's gaming device.
The Most important difference is Sony's first party games
They used to be top notch, now most of them are missing the mark.
Everybody knows that Microsoft, without a doubt, has the worst first-party studios of the big three.
Gears, forza and halo, that's all MS studios know. MS doesn't even the meaning of the word innovation. Ah well, maybe MS is content because the fanbase is so dumb and gullible. Lol
Like QB and Recore..
PS4 does Dragon Quest
1st party exclusives awesomeness
Superior 3rd party titles
Ps4TW. Have no need for xbox with its abysmal "exclusives". 95% of the games on both systems are multiplats which I play on my ps4 with my friends.
I finally got an xbox one this week when I bought the one s. Nothing on this list bothers me as a Ps4 owner.
What gets me is the absolutely terrible user interface, the stupidly long installs and the extremely unorganised xbox marketplace.
I so can't wait for Gears next week though.
Yeah, market place is a mess and the laggy dashboard interface is not great. Can't wait for gears too. Hopefully it's amazing.
It does look amazing though. I'm really excited for it. I bought a 360 just for dead rising and gears and now I've bought a One S for the same reason haha
The Store is a mess. I agree with you there and it's slow to load. It wasn't like that before. The last couple of updates kind of gimped it. They need to fix it. I'm fine with the U.I. At least I can get to my library of games quickly. I have to scroll all over the place with the PS4 U.I.
As time passes I'm becoming more familiar with the UI. I'm still not liking it but at least I'm not as confused by it. I do vastly prefer the XMB for the ps4 though.
One of them is having a continuous release of variety console exclusives by first to third parties,at least 6 console exclusive titles will be released by the end of this year & more in the first quarter of next year.Imo definitely no need for an XBO.
play ps4 games
play ps3 games (psnow)
play ps2 games (psnow and psn)
Play ps1 games (psnow and psn)
Play vita games (psnow and psn)
play psp games (psnow and psn)
that about cover it?
Except there aren't any PS2 or PS1 or Vita or PSP games on PS Now. Do fanboys even do their research?
Well, you can emulate SNES, NES, N64 etc soon on XONE
You have to ask Nintendo first.
Just like PC users?
Except Sony can't get their sh1t together and release PSNow in all territories even years later
Im sure there are 6 things Xbox can do that Playstation can't.
Play Music CD, True B/C, Use External HD, Play Hands Free games, Play Halo 5, Gears 4, FH3, Play UHD Blu-Ray. I think that's 6 and there is probably more. It works both ways.
The OG XBox One is being phased out at the end of the year. Eventually only the XB1 S and Scorpio will be sold at retailers. Only the PS4 can do 4K HDR gaming and streaming. So you'll have to upgrade for that as well. Whether you own a XB1 or PS4, you'll most likely be updating your hardware before the end of 2017.
true bc would be popping in your 360 disc and playing. also, only the slim can play uhd. c'mon, man.
Its funny they mention HDR gaming, because 0 games on PS4 support it and with the update, its not even full HDR on it.
Games are subjective. Everyone has dafferent tastes. I love Uncharted 4, Ratchet and Blood. But besides those 3 games, I can't find any good games on my PS4. On Xbox I love Halo 5, MCC, Forza 6 and Horizon, Titanfall, Sunset etc. They just have more games that interest me personally. But saying PS4 has better exclusives is just fanboyish.
[Its funny they mention HDR gaming, because 0 games on PS4 support it and with the update, its not even full HDR on it. ]
How do you get not full HDR? It ether is or it is not..there is no freaking in between.
HDR is HDR-10 which is the same HDR-10 that the Xbox one players had to buy a whole new console for in the 1st place , because the HDMi output controller was part of its South bridge instead of a dedicated HDMi controller like the PS4 already had on board it's motherboard.
That HDMi controller was already a 2.0a compliant Panasonic series HDMi HDR-10 certified Controller with a built in 4k Upscaler for only video & Picture to 4k built into that HDMi controller even built into the PS4 launch system.
Yes no BD-UHD Movie playback is in the PS4 , but is in the New Xbox one S and not in any of the PlayStation 4 systems..but A) that's only for Movie playback because no UHD drives discs are being used for gaming.
B) Sony's PlayStation 4 as well as the PlayStation 3 can now be used as a complete live Cable TV box replacement for end-users.
No rental fee per month per Cable box per TV leveraged against the consumer , one low price of 100+ channels and DVR functionality with upto 29 days stored for you to watch your saved shows.
It's what Microsoft tried to do originally with the Xbox one but failed to do and all it ended up doing is work with a cable box, but Sony's PS3 & PS4 can replace the cable box completely.
All the wile not taking away the main point of a game console..which is gaming 1st..while now what Sony was Lambasted all last generation for..oh' Blu-Ray was not needed, or cramming Dow Blu-Ray down the consumers throats, when we bought Our xboxbox 360's to play games.. And now people want to tout Blu-Ray as this awesome feature for UHD Movie playback?
When many stated how DVD is good enough..there would not have been a freaking BD optical drive in the Xbox if it was not for Sony and the BD drive consortium..hell Microsoft did not even have full support of the HDDVD format Toshiba believed in..if So the Xbox360 would have had one built into the system from the get go.
Sony I think was pretty clear to trade in UHD playback for increased investment into PlayStation Vue adoption rates, due to looking at A real solid alternative to Live Cable TV offering in the market instead of just prerecorded video's .
[So DRM is great all of a sudden?]
Oh' for Pete's sake look around, Every thing in Software has a form of DRM ..down to its EULA, to its licences.. Your open source foundation has DRM what you can and cannot do even buy it open source, and that's Open source..
So pretty much what you stated is Moot anyway.
So DRM is great all of a sudden?
PS will always have better and diverse exclusives so it's an easy one for me. Ninty and PS for life.
Ps4 is a much better console for me than xbox. Never cares about xbox, never will.
- Superior multiplatform games
- Continuous releases throughout the year
- PS4 still has exclusives
Japanese consoles will always be the best.
Certainly seems that way.
PlayStation has games I like the box doesn't. My main thing is games and PlayStation been delivering those since day 1. The other things on this list are nice but would not make me buy a system. Now back to my jrpg goodness.
They forgot to mention share play. It's just awesome that a buddy you have in Japan for ex. can let you enjoy a game that just came out in his country and is not available in the west, albeit with a maximum duration of one hour of course, but it's renewable!
That's for me is the greatest feature ever. I finished a lot of single player games a long with my buddy playing this way. Makes every game virtually cooperative.
man...this article is a fanboy ceaspool an you guys are playing in it...smh....why cant everybody just have a PREFERENCE on what they like...if you dont like sony your wrong...sony has the best exclusives blah blah blah...I prefer the xbox but i also have a PS4 because there are a few games i like..im not loyal to one system..i like GAMES...
Ultra blu ray
The comment section on this article is probably the worst thing I've ever seen on this site. And that says a lot.
Ffs, what happened to people enjoying games. Yeah, the jabs from Microsoft camp to Sony camp or the other way around are fun sometimes, but this comment section is beyond that point.
Rookie should never be allowed to comment again, others should feel consequences too, from both camps. Get n4g to focus on the positive criticism again, not bashing each other 24/7.
Sure, this article mentions things the PS4 has over the Xbox One. There are things Xbox One has over PS4 too. If you're a one persoon kind of guy, make up your mind about which features you want the most and choose accordingly. If you want and can get both, AWESOME! Even better for you. If you're a pc gamer, that's fine too. Just accept people want different things, don't be so close minded.
Wow lets brag sony charges monthly to play old games you already paid for were on the xbox all you have to do is pop in the disk. This whole thing was another fanboy article made to get clicks and start fights
as long as beautiful and amazing masterpieces of games such as uncharted 4 will keep coming (Horizon, spiderman, god of war, detroit, days gone and more) the ps4 will stay in the lead.
They probably should have put the word "YET at the end of title.
1. Virtual Reality - True the OG XB1 and XB1S will probably never do Virtual Reality, but the Scorpio surely will and probably will perform better then the PS4.
2. Game Streaming - The XB1 really doesn't need to do this because it has B/C. The PS4 is using a pay to Stream game service call PSNow to stream games. On XB1 it's free to play B/C game. Just put your disk in and play. XB1 can stream some games to the PC as well and it's free too.
3. HDR - XB1 S already supports HDR. HDR on the OG PS4 you have to wait and hope developers patch the games, otherwise it doesn't work. HDR on OG PS4 and PS4 Slim is only in 1080P. It doesn't have any 4K upscaling like the XB1 S does. So it's inferior to XB1 S version since it does it all in 4K upscale.
4. Better Frame Rate & Resolution. - PS4 has always had the upper hand in this, yet the XB1 has improved both resolution and frame rate over time. It still hasn't reached the PS4, but it's very minor as this point. Both consoles still seem to get games at 900p-1080p and run below 60fps. The XB1 S improved it even more. The Scorpio will solve this problem permanently.
5. PS4 has it's exclusives and the XB1 has theirs. It's all a matter of opinion on what you like. I like exclusives on both systems. I own Bloodborne, The Last of Us, Uncharted 4, Ori and the Blind Forest, Forza Horizon 2 & 3, Halo 5, Rare Replay, Infamous Second Son, Sunset Overdrive and a bunch of other exclusives. I don't really favor one over the other. All the games are fun to play. Both systems have great exclusives like these and bad ones as well. Everyone knows what the bad ones are.
6. I Can Stand Up. - LMAO!! Who the hell cares really? I've never used a stand for my systems. Always keep them horizontal the way they were built to be. The PS4 and the XB1 S both have stands. If you care about that, you're covered. Kind of dumb to have this on the list. "Remote Play" would have been a better choice.
There are games and a lot of beautiful ones on the PS4, it's not going to change if some guy/girl says the opposite. Is there really the need to do like they do? The article is here just to show the war between the factions and feed it.
Well, it's not completely the article's fault, since it stated that the PS4:
- It's VR compatible. True, the Xbox isn't.
- It can stream games, it's true. Xbox can't/doesn't.
- there's HDR on all PS4, it's not on the old Xbox One. So true this too.
- Good or bad for someone, in general, it has games with better frame-rate and resolution
- PS4 has many exclusives, good ones. If a blid xbone fanboy doesn't like that, it's his/her problem
- The last is a bit subjective, so i call it even... someone prfers this, someone else prefers that.
All of the above is true and not only the PS4 owners, the gamers too, can't deny that. If they do they're just poor and sad fanboys, nothing more. It's not my habit to go to the Xbone section, i'm always here (ps4 one, even if sometimes Xbone only articles appear...) so i don't know if there are more PS4 or Xbone fanboys, but from what i see here the frustration on the MS side is huge or it wouldn't explain why someone comments like he/she does. You can even check the first comment, without looking for other ones, the very first starts with a provocation. Sometimes i like replying with something stupid because the comments are so stupid they can't be real.
The 1st party studios.
Nothing but a fanboy post to go crazy on and blow their loads everywhere.
spreading Misinformation about the console they hate? Check
Constantly pointing out 1 or 2 features to death like it matters? Check
High upvotes on the most ridiculous or dumbest statements? Check
Let me give an honest break down of it.
VR: Despite the fact I don't care much for Peripheral gaming it seems to be a pretty big deal with some great momentum leading up to its releases. Positive previews show Sony's VR will be a hit.
Game streaming: Not really a factor if MS wanted something like that they would of done it. Streamings an alternative but BC is free, consistent and with a growing library.
HDR: Its 50 50 we haven't seen it in action on regular PS4's so the actual quality is up in the air. Overall it is a slight advantage over regular X1's I agree.
Better resolution: Most devs now don't even talk about res or they don't make a big deal out of it like they did 2 years ago. Its an advantage yes but no longer a "game changer" the internet made it out to be plus 4k seems to be the buzz in which imo I rather have 1080 60 than a res barely anyone will take advantage of.
PS4 exclusive: Nintendo Exclusive, MS exclusives PS4 games are highly rated so yes its advantage also subjective.
It Can Stand: Big.. game changer?
This isn't a logical post its a fanboy play ground like I mentioned.
I'll see my way out have a blast in here fanboys.
