Console debate keeps going...

... yet there is one thing you don't see many talking about.

Which country did it (xbox one/ps4) come from.... I mean, who makes it??

Parts and manufacturing aside... A Washington State based company produces the Xbox One, while the Playstation 4 is produced in Japan. Fifty years ago this would matter to most...

America needs jobs right now, more than ever. If, by chance, you happen have the unfortunate problem of only obtaining one console or the 'other' console. If they are more similar than different.... play the same games... and you live in 'Merica, why wouldn't you just buy the Xbox and support the Nation you live in?

I have read hundreds of threads about the next gen consoles over the last six months. I've marveled at the debate about which is 'better' that plagues each and every topic. But what I can't understand is how this topic very rarely ever is mentioned as a viable reason to pick one over the 'other'.


Same goes for people living/purchasing in Japan. They have a much different game selection to choose from. Most of which are played on Sony or Nintendo systems....

I wonder what the debate looks like in Japan?

ITT: Xbones are made in America.

Isn't everything made in China?

All consoles shipped to the United States on both side, are made in China.

PS4 and a handful of XBox One's were made in China. The majority of XBox One's were made in Mexico, in worse working conditions than those in Fox Con in some cases.
