PlayStation and Xbox are a two of the most used game consoles on the planet. Because of the popularity, many don’t know the console that they should go for. A question that console purchasers will inquire many times during the the next couple of years is which is the better console, Sony PlayStation or Microsoft Xbox?
Gaming nowadays has become a way of life for many people. They start and finish the day by enjoying their preferred video and online games. Lots of people actually consider gaming as addictive: they merely won’t feel right or complete without firing their virtual firearm or constructing a digital house or citadel. But to feel entirely fulfilled and happy along with your gaming experience, you have to have and make use of the best gaming console.
Both are constantly evolving, games consoles have gotten more slender layouts, new features and naturally, plenty of big games since they first launched. PS4 and Xbox One costs have reached an all time low, while both video game systems have spawned upgrades byway of PS4 Slim, PS4 Professional and Xbox One S in 2016. There are numerous consoles to choose from in 2017, four of which belong to the PS4 and Xbox One families. Both companies are also creating more powerful games consoles because of virtual reality.
How about the games then? Lots of the games are exactly the same, but the exclusive games are what make each system a rewarding investment. New features to the respective systems also make this clear-cut showdown more complex than ever before. It’s all matter of personal preference when it comes to choosing the right console. Xbox is more type of a entertainment center. The system has the unique capability to transmit your Cable-Box TV signal, letting you to rapidly change between playing a game and watching a show. Although both PS4 and Xbox One cover most entertainment essentials. Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Instant Video can be found on both systems. PS4 haS it’s own television service called PlayStation Vue though, more on that maybe later.
I will not get into into hardware particulars here, lets just say, both engines are good. I’d go for PlayStation as pure gamer and for XBox as all-around enjoyment center. My biggest dislike with Xbox is the Windows 10 UI, but it’s just me 🙂 . While the PS4 may have quicker RAM, a faster GPU, and greater native resolution, I simply do not know how those amounts will pan out when it comes to raw results and functionality. I’d however think about the games you want to play first, and then make a choice based on that.
Cost: PS4 might be a bit cheaper than Xbox One, but now that the updated versions are available, PS4 Pro and Xbox One S, this battle has been called as tie. At least when writing this, you could get the Xbox One S about $50 cheaper that the PS4 Pro model.
Hardware: As I mentioned before, not planning to get into specific details, but PlayStation is a winner, perhaps not by much, but still.
Controls: Both perform nicely. Xbox has a somewhat larger hold, if you have big hands, then likely Xbox controller is better.
Games: Nearly all largest third-party publishers make their games for both consoles. Clearly Microsoft games are primarily for XBox, and Sony makes games for PlayStation. Most of the XBox games will also be available on PC, because of the fact that Xbox has Windows 10 driving it. But despite of that, I personally enjoy PS4 games list better.
Online: Both consoles require online subscription to have all of the services and apps accessible. PS4 uses Sony PlayStation Network and Xbox has the Xbox Live Community. I’d say, no big difference here.
Entertainment value: As I mentioned earlier, XBox has lots and plenty of amusement aspects. Though does PlayStation, but I nevertheless consider PS4 more pure gaming console than Xbox. I do have them both, so that’s how I got the feeling.
I am going to keep them both, and will be using both as time goes on. This wasn’t actually a “PlayStation vs Xbox” showdown, a lot more like a brief comparison or private opinion sharing… thingy 🙂 . Doesn’t matter which way you go, you’ll have lots of entertaining anyways. Should you be able, get both!
