PS4 or Xbox One? Which is better?


Which one do I treat my brother to?

  1. The question isn’t which is better! it should be which console do your brother’s friends have. I’d find this out subtlety, this way you can buy something that he can play online with his mates, no point buying him an xbox if his mates have PS4 etc.

    There not a huge amount of difference between the consoles in reality.

    It really depends what you want in a console, if you only use your console for games then pick the PS4 as its more powerful gaming wise and has a larger indie game base. It has 8gb of faster RAM than xbox but uses 3.5 gb for OS xbox uses only 3gb for OS. Basically both consoles should have around 5gb mark available for games. However if your like me you use your console for more than games eg: streaming movies and watching youtube then maybe the xbox is a better choice with its fast swicthing and snap modes allowing two things to be displayed at once eg: a game and a game walkthrough on youtube.

    here are some proper facts:

    PS4 is more powerful graphically but so was the PS3 and since developers make cross platform games for the lowest console powerwise they will make them on xbox and then port them to PS4 as its easier to add than to scale back a game. The only PS3 games I saw that looked better than 360 were exclusives and I feel it will go the same way. And none of it matters unless you run both conoles at the same time with the same game, otherwise you’ll never notice a difference.

    They both have a camera while xbox’s is a bit more adavnce neither is watching you while you sleep.

    they both have the same DRM/used game polices- xbox reversed its own DRM, however both consoles allow for a game developer eg: EA games to use DRM like online passes. PS4 only confirmed games made by them will be DRM free.

    They both have to pay for online gaming but PS4 is a little cheaper.

    Xbox one is more expensive as it includes kinect, PS4 was going to be release at the same price point with the PS4 eye included but sony changed plans after xbox revealed their price.

    PS4 has better support for indie games (if you care) though xbox has confimred dev’s can self publish now

    both have blueray and 4k Tv support.

    Xbox live is a better and more reliable online service than PSN (this comes from my PS4 mates) but since sony is now charging for the service it may improve.

    They both have some sort of cloud support, currently PS4 is mainly for recording and streaming gameplay (though may change) and xbox is more about trying to offload game processing bits to help their games to look better. Current reports state xbox records the last five minutes of gameplay and PS4 is anywhere from 15 mintues again this only matters if plan to share game moments.

    neither is backwards compatible.

    your PS3 peripherals will work on PS4 as in headsets and move controllers but not normal controllers, you will have to buy an adaptor to use current gen headsets on xbox and no other ones will work inlcuding old controllers though the adaptor may work for them as well.

    I’m still on the fence and waiting to feel what the new PS4 controllers are like, I don’t care about sharing game moments, skype or most of the other crap offered by both consoles. I do like xbox’s fast switching and snap mode as it suits me but other than that most games will be available for cross platform and the only exclusive from either console I was really interested in was Titanfall for xbox. Otherwise I’ll pick whichever one has most of my friends on it which at the moment is tied.stupid friends maybe I should look at the steambox.

  2. It’s generally a matter of bias in most people’s eyes, but since you seem to be undecided, I’ll let you in on some info. During the game festival, E3, Microsoft mentioned some things I disagree with.

    •Xbox one must always be connected to the internet. Microsoft checks in every 24 hours on the Xbox one, and if you’re not connected, your Xbox then becomes unusable. So this means not only do you have to pay for a separate Internet service aside from your Xbox one, you have to pay for Xbox live as well.

    •all games purchased for the Xbox one must be brand new because once an Xbox one game has been played on a system, that game cannot be played on any other Xbox one. This is supposed to prevent people stealing games, but unfortunately, Microsoft is punishing all for what the few have done wrong. Ps4 still allows you to share games.

    Xbox one kinetic camera must be plugged in all the time. It records randomly (camera & mic) and sends that info to ad companies and gives you ads personalized to you. Seems a lot invasive.

    Xbox one’s games still run off of DVD software. Since ps3 came out, their games have been blueray based games, and ps4 will be no different. Ps4 is just the dominant console!

    Get ps4!
