Xbox One vs PS4 Streaming Apps in One Glorious Megachart

Both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One want to be way more than just your gaming console—they want to be the centerpiece of your home entertainment system. This week, we got our first look at the apps that'll launch with both consoles. Here's how they measure up.

I love my game of thrones and didn't IGN confirm HBO Go on PS4. Besides people, for the most part, will just be gaming for the first couple months.

PS4 as the Center piece of your home entertainment system.How can that be.It won't even play music unless you pay Sony $10 a month.My PS3 did more the my new PS4 will do.

It does more now, but wait, there will be firmware updates that ad more to it. Besides Sony already said mp3 support will be added in the second update

thats why the ps4 is a gaming machine im in the uk

I sincerely wish they bring EPL / UEFA matches (live/recorded) to PS4 via some app, and when they do that, I hope they bring that to the USA too.

I'd kick my cable TV box out of house if that happens.

I wouldn't mind having TED, but that's not enough to make be buy a Bone.

MS def has the edge in video apps but allot of them look very US orientated, does anyone know if the likes of HBO etc works in UK

Dark_Overlord3498d ago

No it doesn't, as won't quite a few of those channels, making the comparison pretty much US only :)

Problem is that every single app on Xbox live is behind the Xbox Live Gold Pay wall ($59.99 a year)

None of PS4's App's are behind a pay wall. You do not need PS plus to use any of them.

skoorydook3497d ago

To be honest if HBO etc had worked in the UK I would see the fee as totally worth it, its channels we can't get over here

maybe they meant a streaming app, for like watching streams..... IDK
maybe XO got one and PS4 dont..... well its just a matter of time before we know it anyway.

Edit: yeah they did have it. i think there was a vid showing it on the OPSMag preview/review vid they had, later at the end that is. i know i saw both UStream and Twitch as an option when starting a stream

yeah found it here:

second Edit: whats up with all the Disagrees >____< this site is sooo sad.

Yea Sony bought out Twitch for a day so that no one had to watch ads (besides 1 PS4 ad at the beginning). They're definitely partners and PS4 should have Twitch.
