    Neither at the moment. Refuse to spend £349/£429 for a console and then £50 on top of that for games. Will wait until backwards compatibility is available for PS4 and then buy a PS4. More than happy with my PS3 at the moment. I know someone who got stabbed on launch day of GTA5. No doubt there is someone somewhere who had the same if not worse done to them for a PS4

    Good call, picked up my xbox one two days ago. Amazing console!

    Both the consoles are great dont get me wrong but kill zone what a let down on ps4 graphically beautiful, terrible game.

    Forza on the other hand, totally crisp!!

    P.S about the snap feature you hear both but you hear the tv more and then you can snap out to the game only. Its the best feature ever!!
    Lucky man!

    Killzone I have never got in to to be honest. Think I tried the first 2 and it wasn't for me.

    Cheers for letting me know about the snap feature!

    I don't see how you can watch tv through the Xbox one,especially with the snap feature. The fact that the console outputs at 60hz but tv is at 50hz just makes it unwatchable with judder.

    Last time I posted on a topic like this I got so many down votes xD This time I'll try not to sway to far to one console xD I think both are good, both have improved significantly. Personally I think I'd get an Xbox One, just because game developers in general will code there games to the lowest spec console on the market, ironically that's the xbox one, and I doubt game developers will stop developing games for Xbox. So after considering that I thought the Xbox One seemed to have added the most new features (not all good but they have added a few good ones). That's not to say the PS4 isn't good, just wouldn't be my console of choice.

    I don't think I'll be getting either any time soon anyway... PC is much cheaper anyway xD The only reason I MIGHT get the Xbox is because I like the exclusives they have listed and I like the casual sort of gaming experience you get with a console. Other than that PC all the way :P

    I don't see how you can live with it. MS should be able to update it to output at 50hz when you're only watching tv, although they don't seem to care about us in the UK/Europe, but you'll always have that issue with the snap feature because games are at 60hz and it can't output at both.

    It's just awful judder, like i
    f I wr
    rote m
    y r
    eply li
    me t
    his

    Unwatchable (or unreadable for the above)

    I don't understand how you can be playing a game properly and also watching the TV.

    Quite a lot of games require you to have your full attention on it. Especially a racing game or FPS.

    Maybe you're a lucky one that can't see it, or as above you're not actually watching the tv properly, but I can assure you that it's there, because the only way to get around the issue introduces judder, there's no judder-free solution.

    Lol, this.

    I can barely talk to other people when I'm playing F1, let alone concentrate on something else.

    Why in gods name you would spend a HUNDRED quid more for a console that is technically WEAKER is beyond me. I'm not stating that from looking at the games available as neither system will have games that take advantage of the available hardware yet and both systems will have Day 1 bugs till probably February but from the technical specifications the Xbox One is the weaker system.

    So yeah its PS4 for me. The launch lineup sucks on both end to be honest. BF4 is a pile of rushed broken arse, you're a fool if you paid for that and even expected it to be a job done well. COD: Ghosts is the worst COD to date and is essentially pointless. Killzone isn't a Killzone game. Knack is just...what. Forza, well its racing...probably good but im not fussed and if its not split screen it can go **** a brick.

    Plus Sony have Naughty Dog...gotta love my Naughty Dog.
