Xbox One or PS4?
It does not have to be said that if you’re an avid gamer then you’ve probably already made your choice. The chances are, that you –like any gamer would- have stayed loyal to either Microsoft or Sony. If that is not the case then the next few comparisons should help out in giving a rough idea as to which console is the leading product into next generation gaming.
Xbox One: One of the more interesting points of Microsoft’s announcement last year was that the company plans to release 15 exclusive titles for the Xbox One over the next year, in which 8 of them will be brand new franchises.
PS4: While Microsoft undoubtedly has more to show, Sony is looking strong on this front also. The company has already revealed a host of strong new series including Driveclub, Knack and Deep Down, while next-gen instalments in familiar franchises like Killzone and Infamous have also been announced.
Xbox One: The Xbox One will contain an 8-core AMD CPU with 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, HDMI in/out, USB 3.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. This means that signs point to both consoles having very similar hardware.
PS4: In comparison, the PlayStation 4 has an 8-core Jaguar AMD CPU. While that may not mean much to everyone, experts are saying it’s likely that graphics on the Xbox One and PS4 will look very similar.
Xbox One: While ardent videogame fans were sorely disappointed (IGN polled its audience and discovered 75% of its readers weren’t impressed), the mainstream media was fairly positive, though a lot of outlets weren’t sure what to make of it.
PS4: Because it went first, Sony reaped the benefits of the PlayStation 4 offering the world its first glimpse at the next-generation. Additionally, as its conference was twice as long as Microsoft’s and clearly presented games, gamers and developers as the focus, it’s generated a lot more goodwill.
At this moment in time, the Playstation 4 is proving to be the leading console. Microsoft has planned more instalments for the Xbox One though they have not been released yet.
