The months leading up to the Xbox One's release were a disaster and even now the console has a very flawed party system, something the 360 did very well. Updates will fix these issues but still the Xbox One lacks power compared to the PS4. We'll have to see how well it performs with cloud computing integration though
the thing is they are going for different groups of people. sony built a console for gamers. and xbox built an entertainment hub for the whole family. being as i love to game i would get a ps4, especially since you can get most xbox games for pc as well. nice article though!
definitely getting a ps4 once there are actual games worth buying, for example an exclusive that isn't Knack.
I get ps4 because i use console only for game . i pay it 300euro and look great. Xboxone have less graphics quality And less frames. It s bigger and some part look cheap. I prefer the first
Xbox One because of the kinect.
Those people still banging on and on about the hardware differences between the 2 systems are misguided at best. Although they are far more similar than different this time around, when both systems are optimized for from devs there is going to be very little to separate them form the typical viewing distance. 720p and 1080p are pretty much indistinguishable from any regular distance, and its going to be the same with games. MS also is widely known to have the better dev tools, something that was painfully obvious with the PS3's vastly superior power but lack of any tools to actually let devs use it easily. I have several games for both my 360s and PS3s and they look identical, with PC versions looking better than both consoles. This time round will be no different. Titalfall looks significantly better on my PC than my Xbone.
It would still have been nice for the kinect to not be mandatory and a lower cost or better spec'ed console be released, however in the end they're both going to be successful but with the Xbone useful for much more than just games.
This chart neatly summarizes the viewing distances and TV sizes at which various resolutions can be said to "matter" as far as detectable differences to the naked eye.
