Which gaming console is better in terms of gaming and an all around console? Is the XBox One better or is the Playstation 4 better and where can I purchase either of these?
When it comes to choosing between one game console or another, it's rarely possible to state that one is "better" than the other. Microsoft fans are certain to praise the Xbox One, while Sony loyalists will counter it with the features the PS4 is offering.
Let's look at some of the differences and similarities:
- The PS4 console is smaller than Xbox One
- The PS4 is cheaper than the Xbox One
- Both have kept true to the design of the controller, meaning users don't have to adapt to something new
- The PS4 has matched many of the apps that Xbox One employed
- The yearly subscription fee for Xbox One will be required to access apps like Netflix, while the PS4 doesn't have this restriction
- The PS4's focus is on gaming, while the Xbox One is branching further out to become an all-in-one entertainment console
- As far as graphics go, there is little difference
To round it out, the two are coming in at a close tie (despite the above comparisons, Xbox One's wider range of usefulness counters the PS4's other minor wins) but as mentioned earlier, most people will likely choose the platform that they are most familiar with. It's important to note that there has been some backlash in the Sony community as the PS4 is already is need of a patch the moment you connect it. The smart thing to do is wait a few months until all the bugs have been ironed out (and hopefully, the price drops).
Xbox One vs PS4 - in the end, the deciding factor is what you personally expect from a gaming console.
Personally the Xbox one. It's more than just a gaming console.
