Xbox One Vs Playstation 4

As we all know, E3 was the exciting time when the next generation game consoles were finally unveiled. The Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. In terms of hardware horse power, the two consoles are pretty close. The PS4 has a slightly stronger GPU, but Xbox One's improved Xbox Live is probably better then Sony PSN. I think in this case, we can call that a wash.

All fanboyism aside, I would say the two consoles are pretty even. However, this doesn't seem to stop the non-stop bickering going in various online forums about how each console is better then the other. This generation, honestly, will come down to the same thing it did last generation which is your purchase(for you or your kids) will be decided by 3 things:

1. Price

2. Which Exclusive Titles your interested in.

3. Which console you (or your kids) friends have. This will determine which online service Xbox Live/PSN is going to be most beneficial to you.

Its important to not listen to the naysayers about Xbox One's DRM.

Those policies were rescinded when Microsoft found it wasn't popular with gamers. To be fair, there were some benefits to Microsoft's previous policy. See Steam and PC game eco system to understand that digital distribution may be the way forward in lowering price, and allowing more games to hit the market. However, that is the topic for another post.

In terms of DRM, both consoles are pretty much even right now. So this fall, when it comes to choosing that right game console for yourself or your kids, you can't really go wrong with either one. This generation, both the PS4 and the Xbox One look to have some very good exclusives titles at launch. So take your pick, and have fun!
