I realized that it's cheaper for ME to get an Xbox One than a PS

That's why it's named Xbox One. So you don't have to count that high to remember its name.


Yes because four is a real high number to get to.

$500
-$100 headset
+$20 adapter
-$60 year of live
+$30 since over half will be used by December
=$390

The real number is $385-395 since I actually buy xbl for $40 a year and I will have the ability to sell my wi-fi adapter for $5-15.

This definitely doesn't apply to everyone and I am obviously smarter than to base my decision just around price. I just hadn't thought of it before today and I thought it was worth noting.


Winner of the day. LOL some people are just tools.

I prefer Sony over Microsoft. That being said I do genuinely empathize for Microsoft fans for having their image tarnished by people like TC....

Us Sony fans have to deal with the same garbage.... I see people all the time on the ps4 board creating ridiculous/illogical/desperate reasons as to why the ps4 is 'superior'.


I wish they'd make a system that blends aspects of both systems for people that don't want to deal with the biased garbage. Of course even THEN there would be bone heads spouting garbage.

I honestly can't be bothered to read through 26 pages to see if anyone actually posted the correct maths here, so I will just do it:

Xbox One:

Console - $500
Headset - $0 (you have it, so no cost)
Adapter - $20 (guess)
Live - $20 (using actual cost, for half a year to bring in line with the year's ps plus)
Plug and play kit/rechargeable batteries - $20 (another guess, to bring in line with ds4 rechargeableness)

Total - $560

Ps4:

Console - $400
Headset - $100 (to give as good a headset for ps4 as you would have on XBO)
Sale of included ps4 headset - ($20) (guess)
Ps plus - $50 (assuming you can't get it cheaper, which sometimes you can, at least here in the uk)
Rechargeableness of controller - $0 (it does)

Total - $530

Optional - PS Eye - $60 (depends on how much you would use kinect)

Total with kinect comparison - $590

It all comes down to how much you would use the kinect/eye. The batteries you cannot do without, and I presume you are a heavy online user hence the headset + online considerations, so those are pretty much essentials too, but if you are like many then the kinect is very much not an essential and can be ignored, in which case the ps4 is still cheaper.

If you were being super exact you should add some cost to the XBO headset, since if you were to buy a brand new ps4 headset it would last longer than your used XBO one, and the idea is to compare like for like as much as possible

Eg. If your XBO headset is 1 year old, and will last 3 more, and a new headset will last 4 years then $25 should be added to the XBO price.

I know the headset is a sunk cost, but the cost of replacement in the future is still relevant.

How do you minus the live cost if you already paid for it. Shouldnt it just not be added or subtracted
