How to decide which console you want

1) Do you want to play online with your friends? Yes - Get what they have. No, go to 2.

2) Do you prefer the exclusive of one console? Yes - Get that console. No, go to 3.

3) Do you prefer one control pad over another? Yes - Get that console. No, go to 4.

4) Does 1080p, 60fps matter to you? Yes - Get a PS4. No, go to 5.

5) Does voice control matter to you? Yes - Get Xbox One. No go to 6.

6) Go to the shops, see which has the best deal, you obviously don't really care about format, you just wanna play dem games! :yep:

It is marginal, but yeah, it does have better graphics. Typically it's running games at 1080p, whereas the One is running them at 900p (this is just multi-platform games mind). Exclusives are a little different, for example the gorgeous Forza 5 runs at 1080p 60fps on the One.

I put that at number 4 though for a reason. The graphics aren't miles apart, the Xbox One will receive a slight boost now because Kinect is being dropped (which if you can wait would save you a few £) as a bundled device. Also, in the future, the One may come back at the PS4 with it's Azure Cloud computing. See:



This may change things in the future, but we'll see.

Personally, as someone who owned an Xbox One, unless racing games are really your thing, I'd go PS4. You'll get Naughty Dog games on the PS4. That to me is a bloody good reason to get one.

The answer is simple and consists of two letters: "P" and "C"

Otherwise follow follow Mickey's advice, although the 1080p 60fps thing is likely to become less of an issue in the near future, both conoles will run at 1080/60 but likely with very minor differences in graphics. Ofc, when cloud computing starts for Xbone it will be a whole different story, if you have the bandwidth the xbone will most probably end up better, although there will be drawbacks to it.

Personally, I would go xbone, but that's because I quite like Halo, Fable and Crackdown, having played on 360 quite a lot back in the day. As I said though, a lot of people saying PS4 is more powerful than xbone forget that MS have already said they plan to introduce cloud computing; yes the hardware is stronger on the PS4 (slightly) but when they are both at their full potential (of currently known features) the xbone should come out on top. It's hard to pick between them when you remove any biases one may have such as exclusives and fanboyism.

also most xbox one games run at 720 compared to 1080 for ps4 so that means ps4 has better graphics

Ye honestly if you're just wanting multi-plats then hit up PC. Online play is free, decent ports will look better and run more smoothly than on consoles and you can use it for other stuff too (web browsing, work, movies, etc.)

If there are particular console exclusives you want (such as the recently announced Halo 5 on Xbone or Little Big Planet 3 on PS4) then go with whichever one has your desired exclusives.

The Wii U always gets overlooked, at least give it a quick google to see if it appeals to you!

most xbox one games run at 1080p, much like most ps4 ones do, just because the more demanding ones don't (such as battlefield and watchdogs) doesn't mean that most do, in fact, to my knowledge, if xbone is significantly below 1080p ps4 is below 1080 too.

Basically cloud is using a server (or any computing device really) to do some of the work, it's similar to cloud storage, except instead of data being stored elsewhere some of the computing is done elsewhere. I'm not entirely sure how it will work and how much of an edge it will give, since a lot of the work will have to be done on system, after all you can't afford to wait for maybe a few tenths of a second for information if your ping is low when gaming.
It should at least bring it in line with PS4, or exceed it, it's yet to be seen since we know little about it other than that MS plans to do it, IIRC starting next year (or maybe late this year, can't remember perfectly)

The cloud thing is the Azure video I posted earlier.

Most Xbox One games run at 900p.
