PS4 is the best to buy, the most important factor for me is not price, it is performance....
You're entitled to you opinion, but for most people cost will always be the over-riding factor. Not all of us can shell out the big bucks. And the performance gap between the two consoles is minimal.
:) The price difference is smaller than the performance difference!!!
I like how despite having the most highest rated exclusives, no one even thinks about the Wii U.
i think everyone should follow his tastes of games. If i havent had any console and i have to buy one right now i will choose PS4 for LBP3 and Guilty Gear Xrd and also to be prepared for the sick 2015 which seems to be one of the biggest gaming years ever. Wii U would be a very close second for the 1st party awesomeness. Nothing for me on X1 so that's out of the question atm...
There is an old saying "You get what you pay for" and like Jack Nicholson said "Think about the future." Its a 4-6 year investment. During the 2008 -2010 global economic crisis I was hard pressed to choose what platform I would invest on. And after a long thorough research and study I settled for the PS3. With so many important factors considered like: 1. getting the balance right with the best of both worlds - Japanese & Western games support was very important criteria to me. It was the games support that mattered most. And PS3 proved to be that platform and I got what I want. Exclusive Western Games: Little Big Planet Series Uncharted Series The Last of Us God of War Infamous Series Killzone Ratchet and Clank Series PlayStation Move games Multiplat Western Games: Batman Series CoD Series Lego Series Minecraft Red Dead Redemption Exclusive Japanese Games: ICO Shadow of the Colossus Ni No Kuni Puppeteer Gran Turismo Series Metal Gear Series Gundam Battle Operation Demon's Souls Dragon's Crown Resident Evil Remaster Series Tales Series the new Godzilla game! Multiplat Japanese Games: Armored Core Series Sonic the Hedgehog games Region free gaming and sharing and tons of free games though PS Plus Instant Game Collection which was a huge surprise! There is no doubt the same goes even more for PS4. 2. The quality of the hardware's track record. My PS3 is now 5 years old and it is still in good working order. My 360 is now long dead and gone. RROD :-( ) Heh, my old PSOne, PS2, & PSP outlives that damn M$ machine! 3. The quality of games exclusives or multiplats. 4. Power of the machine. Like the SNES, PS3 this will guarantee that 4-6 years from now the games will still have enough juice to squeeze from the console for better gameplay, features, and presentation. This is also a guarantee that award winning games that takes advantage of the hardware's power shall be made. i.e. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Chrono Trigger, Donkey Kong Country, Star Fox, FF VI, Uncharted Series, The Last of Us, Ni No Kuni, Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls, etc
Performance? Really? For me it's games. Both consoles have a bright future. But if people are taking a really short term view, then yeah I'd agree XB1 is good for Xmas - but PS4 looks stronger in the early part of next year
i agree it's about the games but you wouldn't disagree with the fact that performance is a good thing for a futureproof console. concerning the games it's a matter of opinions. I wouldn't trade an LBP for Halo HD or Sunset Overdrive... also with a PS4 right now you are ready for 2015 starting with THE ORDER in February. What's the first X1 exclusive coming out next year?
And some people might not trade Project Spark for LBP. Halo HD and Sunset Overdrive's value are known, at this time we are simply hoping that The Order is good....shoot, we are hoping that The Order comes out in February and not be another Driveclub. Play Halo HD and Sunset right now.....or wait 3 months in hopes of The Order hitting the spot?
abzdiine, I'm not up to speed on everything but my most anticipated game by far is Quantum Break. Also Scalebound could be good and maybe just maybe Fable Legends. LBP has less then zero value for me. I hate that game and a friend always forced me to play it, LBP and LBP2. He's probably gonna make me play LBP3 soon. The horror. Just my honest opinion, not trying to insult a PS fan or anything. What does PS4 have for me next year? The Order looks like a generic shooter (with amazing graphics though) so far, nothing more, nothing less.
Mine is the games and network!
Performance ? When talking about XOne and PS4 ? LOL. An extra blade of grass here and there is the last thing that would make me pick a console. I would go for the games.
Both consoles have great games...
You get the Xbox One only if you wanna enjoy your Christmas. With games like Sunset, Forza, and Titanfall, Xbox One had the best games this year, regardless of sales figures which I could care less about, Xbox One won this year, especially for core gamers. LBP3 is a really Good reason to have a PS4, but that's 1 against 3 exclusives wise. Maybe next year Sony will shape up, and stop announcing release dates, before they are ready to.If Sony's line up next year is accurate, theyll have a killer year, but who knows at this point.
The correct answer to this question is obviously both. It is guaranteed that both the Xbox One and PS4 will have great games and value. If you really cannot invest $800 for 8 years of entertainment then I highly suggest you grow up and join society. Seeing people be so absent mindendly cynical about something so petty as which gaming console is "better" than the other has made me sad. I love my Xbox and PS4 for what they are, and will be, worth - and they are essentially worth the same in a sense of value.
How am I going to play Bloodborne if I buy an XB1? thanks but you can keep your opinion
also the order 1886 :)
The_Infected Tell the guy who wrote this article :)
All I'll be getting for Christmas is some socks, and maybe underwear if I'm lucky. However, I do agree. Xbox One will most likely be the favoured pick this Christmas.
I own a Ps3, a Wii U and a gaming pc, i am pretty much set for everything, Pc for the multiplats, Wii U for the awsome local multiplayer and exclusives ( Cant wait for super smash :S (europe) ) and my ps3... well its kinda been gathering dust but it was fun while it lasted!
The Xbox One since the day I traded my PS4 with a glorious Xbox One. PS4 again when U4 arrives.
The XB1 because I got my PS4 last year.
Luck Bastard. Double dipping.
Best way to go if you can :)
When the PS4 was 100 bucks cheaper the price difference was brought up a lot. Now the Xbox is 50 cheaper with a free game thrown in, technically making it 110 cheaper... What a turnaround. I mean due to crap sales, but still what a difference a few months makes.
With Blood born, Uncharted4, and tbd better versions of metal gear, final fantasy,and kingdom hearts. Ps4 is the way to go.
So are Xbox fanboys the peasants now since they have the cheaper console? Cause that's what I was reading all year long was that Sony fanboys are peasants since their console was cheaper and couldn't afford the $500 Xbox one. I swear the fanboy mentality. Proudly posted on a Wii U gamepad btw :D
The heck ?
Very well said. Now they can't call the PS4 the PoorStation. This is how ridiculous this argument about defining a console and their users buy how much you pay for it was.
Already got my PS4, seeing as it launched a year ago in SA!
really? price? i thought was the good exclusives pumping out lately. so i guess once the price goes back too 400 is not worth to buy anymore. does that mean when the ps4 was 100 cheaper, the xbox one wasnt worth buying? cause of the price? this is what is wrong with this piece of journalism, they could give the pros and cons of each console without taking sides and let gamers decide what they perfer.
But this isn't an objective piece of writing. And isn't meant to be. It's an opinion piece. Where I state a biased view that you are free to reject.
In my opinion, your opinion sucks.
It's nice of you sites to try to help MS out, but people are going to buy what they think is the best investment. (so keep your hints to yourself)
It's the one to get especially at the holiday season prices,am seriously considering getting a 3rd one for the living room .
For me its not a matter of which console to get. But which console I will be playing mostly this holiday since I have both consoles. I got to say my Xbone will be seeing alot of game time until bloodborne comes out. But im sure other gamers have there own preference what they will be playing. This is just mines
I would choose Wii U out of the three since I already own a PS4 and dont want a console that's similar to it.
So the ps4 is more powerfull yet assassins creed unity has a better framerate on the xbox one lol
Doesn't change the fact that the PS4 is more powerful though. :I We all know why Unity runs like crap though and that's due to some really shoddy programming.
Yet 95% of multiplats runs/looks better on the PS4. You're using one broken game to justify which console is more powerful..
I own both ps4 and xbone and the slight difference in graphics is very minimum. I have 12 games on xbone and 1 for ps4 uncharted is the only reason I can't wait to play my ps4. And it's still along way off. I don't care for metal gear or kingdom Hearts or little big planet so xbone is 100% the system of choice for me. When gears of war is out in all its glory I will add yet another to my xbone.
Yeah but core gamers don't want any of those Wii U exclusives, except Smash Bros, not one of my friends has even mentioned Bayonetta 2. Its Xbox One this holiday, looks like Sony wasnt ready for this gen I guess..
MS sure does have everyone fooled. You do realize that you will be playing the same 3 exclusives on XBO for the next several months, right? Because MS always loads their exclusives in the holiday season to give the illusion of having more exclusives come holiday time. And what do you know, it works on the masses!
Sshh, please stop. The truth hurts. A couple of more games this holiday (exclusive wise) and its soooo much better. Noticed how I said this holiday. For anyone just picking up a PS4 this holiday, they will have a lot of games to choose from. Plus all the exclusives that came out( you know the other 10 months of the year) will most likely be cheap now...PS4 has no games O_o.
Price is important, but games come 1st...and XB1 is LATE to the Party when it comes to AAA exclusives that appeal TO ME, ...if its just about price then after the Holidays are over XB1 should have gained some MAJOR ground on the PS4, if its all about PRICE. Now, lol WHEN(yes im am predicting) the XB1 DOESN'T gain any signicant or "major" ground on PS4 after the Holidays are over, what's gonna be the excuse then? hmm? Look, the TRUTH is Microsoft has lost the TRUST of the majority of gamers this GEN and they either have a PS4 or intend to get a PS4, not a XB1......so again when the Holidays are over, and XB1 has NOT gained any ground or very little, my opinion will be more validated than it already is. Phil Spencer(the ex-EA dirtbag,liar,scammer) imo hasn't done shit, just a smiley BS'er with empty promises about the future of XB1, new face same story...where are the games Microsoft? I don't see too many and honestly cant even think of 1 GAME on the XB1 that I have to play, not even 1....someone says "what about MCC?" MCC?!, meh played those games last gen religiously, and why would I want to purchase that broken but still charging $60 crackpot of a game, when the online part is jacked up... And for the record, I was an XBOX Fanboy, Loyal to the Core, bought original Xbox and 360, didn't even think about Sony and the PS2 or PS3.....so im not some Sony fanboy with an axe to grind or a PS4 Troll. It is what it is, and the sooner gamers can be honest with themselves 1st, instead of unpaid PR for Corporation X or Y, the better. edit: XB1 DOES have "some" games that appeal to me that are on the "Horizon", but there too spread out, to far out and there's not enough of them to warrant a purchase of XB1 for me.(ie: Crackdown, maybe Fable Legends, and of course the Halo 5)
Just buy all 3. Infamous was a blast and Sunset Overdrive was amazing. Looking forward to getting smash today.
ON Black Friday you can get a WiiU with Nintendo Land, Smash, DKC: Tropical Freeze, and Mario 3D world by $375. Beat that.
I own both ps4 and Xbox one and the games look amazing on both consoles.Maybe the ps4 is more powerful but I don't see it.
