A bit late I know, but I picked up my xBox One Day One, on Day One, I was an exceptionally well behaved boy this year so I decided it would make a nice ‘me to me’ Christmas present, which to be fair it did.
One question I do see still being asked quite a lot is, ‘which console is better?’ I think this is a question that will never have a definitive answer. There will be fanboys for MS and also those for Sony. As such views will be skewed, and opinions biased, however as gamer of well over 20 years now and the owner of both, for this generation of consoles at this stage of their life cycle, the best console is…BOTH!
Ha, I know that seems a bit of a cop out however here is my reasoning. Remember that these comments are relevant now, the very early stages of the consoles’ lives.
The xBone is the complete entertainment package. When couple with your TV this console will sit in your living room and be an entertainment centre. Games, movies, music and tv all seamlessly integrated with each other.
The PS4 is as they say #4thegamers, and it is. This is aimed at gamers, it does have the entertainment capabilities, however in my opinion they are not as seamless, less integrated. You can of course have your PS4 streaming your music and movies… but it just isn’t as polished. In saying that it is the PS4 that I prefer gaming on. If a game comes out multi platform I will be buying the PS4 version. Except for FIFA, but there is always an exception to the rule!
The bottom line though is this, the best next gen console is by far…The one you prefer, and let’s face it everyone has a preference.
