Michael at Skewed and Reviewed has posted an opinion piece that looks at the pending battle between the Xbox One X and the PlayStation 4 Pro system as to which one is the most powerful and most desired game console for gamers.
Most powerful? Xbonex. Most desired, most loved, best selling, best exclusives, and the king of consoles? Ps4 and its varieties.
"Most desired, most loved, best selling, best exclusives, and the king of consoles?" I think this will belong to Switch soon.
Not without more AAA exclusives. AS long as games like Doom have to be stopped down to play on it; I would not be interested.
gareth, mobile doesn't have AAA exclusives and doing just fine and so will the Switch. It's already outselling the PS4 with supply constraints.
PS4 Pro is selling 20% of the PS4 family hardware, so no it's not king is it? The lack of marketing didn't help and neither did the lackluster launch with only a few titles. Plus Boost Mode didn't even get released for some 6 months later. We all know the XB1X will be quite a bit more powerful but how will the ratio of sales be in the Xbox One family, will it be higher than 20%? Most 'thoughtful' people know total Xbox One hardware sales will not topple PS4 total hardware sales so that battle is likely over before it even begun but for those looking for an upgrade? That remains to be seen about how much developers are willing to push the platform.
Probably wont be more than 20%. Neitjer was expected to be. The issue is lack of adoption of 4K TVs by many consumers
'Ps4 and its varieties.' I agree with chrisx approach. You have on the one hand, XB1 and its different models. On the other hand, the PS4 and its different models. Its more of a matter of preference between PS4 and XB1 the rest is about models availability. For that matter I think both companies see the global sales and dont really specify low end from high end model.
Moldy so salty Sony is still killing MS and Nintendo combined how is that for a stat. LOL
As a PS3 owner. I didn't like the PS3 exclusives like GoW, GT5 & 6, last of us, etc.. and didn't want to play the sequels, remastered, remixed versions of those games. Plus it left a bad taste 8n my mouth when Sony promised to fix the sound in GT 5 & 6 and never did. So, I passed on PS4 and got the X1 and bought a new video card for my PC with the money I had aside for the PS4. But, I hope you enjoy your exclusives because none of them appeal to me.
No one can deny the selection PlayStation has to offer, but no one can deny change either.
How can you say the Pro is the best selling when the One X has yet to launch? Not to mention that we really don't even know the true sells of the Pro and probably never will. Fanboyism at its finest. Play some games for a change.
@chrisx "Most powerful? Xbonex. Most desired, most loved, best selling, best exclusives, and the king of consoles? Ps4 and its varieties." Nice deflection, but the topic is specific about the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro. If you check Amazon NOW, the Xbox One X is outselling both PS4 and PS4 Pro. Which means, as far Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro comparissons goes as of now: Xbox One X - Most desired, most loved, best selling . PS4 Pro - best exclusives Offtopic: As the king of consoles, yes, the title goes to PS4 this generation.
For you.... I’m more excited about the one X.
Most powerful? X, PS4, Switch. Most desired? Depends on the player, but the Switch is doing amazing. Best selling? Again, the Switch is doing amazing. Best exclusives? Switch then PS4, going by numbers and critical scores. The king of consoles? Depends if you want power - X, Most support - PS4, or utility - Switch. Don't play the bias game, then speak for everyone on top of it. And this is without throwing the PC into the mix.
Ps4 pro is almost pointless compared to ps4 regular, twice the gpu power didnt do much to stand out from the normal ps4, I feel like sony scammed me
You playing your Pro on a 720p tv? Lol! I can definitely see a difference with my Pro, you just forget over time how much better it is without actually being able to do a side by side.
4K tv us the way to go.
Playing on a sony bravia 55inch 4k tv the diffrence is so small that you have to look for it.They could have kept the ps4 gpu the same and just gave us ram for better textures and a better cpu for 60fps gameplay, 4k checkerboard is ok but the visuals look soft compared to midrange pc with a decent ram pushing 1080p.Some of you think 4k makes a game look better but no it dosent. It just makes it sharper go play pong in 4k and be amazed!!!
The strongest hardware will always have a better Performance. But are we going to see productions like God of War or TLOU Part 2 on xbox one/x Hard to tell
We already are, https://images.duckduckgo.c...
i think he was talking about exclusives, which is more like this https://blogs-images.forbes... and this http://gameranx.com/wp-cont... and this https://images.cdn.circlesi...
#Goldby "exclusives" lol I dont need xbox one to play them am i ?
@dRanzer those are MS exclsuives
No we aren't.
I hated both of those games on my PS3. So, that's not much of a lose for me.
It's no question of which system is more powerful that's indisputable. Only thing for discussion is which has better market appeal. This isn't a beginning of a generation anymore, people aren't getting fatigued on this gen like last gen just yet. So, the Library of games is all that matters and what interests the majority of gamers. At this point in the game affordability is what's going to trump power. However, that's pretty much been that way since the beginning of this gen.
"Will we possibly see the day where the console becomes much like its PC brethren and instead of an entire new console we see upgraded parts for your existing console?" This is ultimately what I hope things eventually come down to. The reason why I would prefer this method over PC is to me PC has it's purpose. And for me that purpose is work. When it comes to consoles for me it mean play. Whether you're playing videogames, movies, music, you're playing or streaming entertainment. I don't need Windows or Apple Operating System to purchase. I don't need Microsoft Office. I'm not buying an expensive device to work. It's to game on. And to be able to as new hardware comes out upgrade on the fly. Games adjust graphic fidelity based on resources available. Plus maybe play in 3 modes. Performance, Best Graphics or Balanced.
There's a battle? Maybe at Xbox HQ, but it ends there
I like both as consoles but only one has the best third party and Sony's 1st party.
I think another way to look at with the Pro and X is they are the first upgraded consoles. Barely halfway through a normal generation cycle. I don't think their launch is supposed to be as huge as a brand new console. However I think it breathes new life for the current generation. Give it a spike in sales. Not everyone is going to jump in, but more than those who would during a normal generation.
There is no battle... That war was decided in 2013. Yes the xb1x should do decently but once the ps5 is announced then what? The hardcore minority will prob buy an xb1x to play better versions of 3rd party's BUT the majority will be perfectly fine playing on the ps4/pro until next gen starts... The real test of the xb1x will be the same as it was for the xb1s... how well does it perform 6-12 months later? The xb1s sales have taken a serious hit since the end of last year. Like after the x releases there will be absolutely no reason to buy the xb1s.
After Sony's latest game announcements I am even more convinced PS5 is scheduled for 2020. They have a lot of game releasing in 2018/2019. It would make sense that these are their last major PS4 games and as they start to release they will shift development to the PS5.
Naw, think about it... by 2019 if Sony drop the price of the ps4/pro by 50$ each year by 2019 they could both be 149/249... Sony will launch the ps5 in 2019. That's 6 years... I doubt there will ever be a 7 year gen like the ps3
I’m pretty much all 3 of the people described. I’m an early adopter, I like having premium products and I can afford to buy them. I was one of the first to buy the PS4 pro to support my (2) Sony 4k hdr tvs as I wanted the best console on my brand new tv. But now I’m more excited for the one X because well... it’s just a better machine that will not only run and make games look better but also supports the features and capabilities I bought those fancy tvs for in the first place. 4k/60hz/atmos/4k Blu-ray are all suplimental bonuses. Furthermore the PS4 pro enhancements have largely been underwhelming. Not quite enough power to run most things in native 4k, definitely not at 60fps, not enough ram to run 4k textures in a 4k rendered game and most other enhancements are more often times than not, underwhelming. I’m not hating as I do enjoy my pro and games like hzd and Uncharted look amazing - but they’d look even more amazing on the one X and that’s my point. The Pro was a victim of its price point and as such it lacks high end capabilities but still costs more than the base. The one X solves that problem for me. Games look substantially better on it thx to not just 4k but more ram for better textures, faster frame rates, and still room for more effects and better rendering. I own the PS4 pro and I have played the one x and there is absolutely a difference. You might not see the full scope of it on web comparison videos as you’re watching a compressed, downrezzed, lower bitrate videos on a screen that most likely isn’t 4k or hdr
PS4 Pro is still the only console I have not purchased. I am hoping PS5 has backwards compatibility in a few years so I can play the enhanced games on that.
The only thing the Xbox One X is doing is making me hyped for the PS5 because it's gonna shit all over it. The PS5 will likely come out in 2019 with 12 TFLOPS for $399.99. It's actually gonna be a true 4K console, unlike the Xbox One X.
Better Hardware: Xbox One X Better Software: PS4 Pro
