XBOX One or PS4, which to buy! Please give opinions

#1sfcbrulePosted 7/14/2014 4:01:36 PM
Hey everyone, I am looking for opinions on which system to buy. The PS4 or XBOX One (without Kinect) Hopefully, responses will be from people who own both or have owned both. I will be posting this in the PS4 board as well, so there will be no favortism. I have previously owned the PS, PS2, XBOX, and XBOX360, so I have no biased either way. However, if it helps, I am only interested in gaming, not multimedia usage, or Kinect. I am probably only one of a few people left, but I will not be using it for online gameplay either, at least not for the forseeable future. Finally, if it matters, I am very much into sports games (FIFA, Madden, WWE). Sorry if this is lengthy, but I truly can not make up my mind on which system to buy, as I can only get one. Does one system look better visually on screen over the other? (Could you notice a difference if the same game was playing on both systems at the same time, side by side? Thanks everyone for any input.

The Xbox One has the better resolution and graphics along with framerate.

The Kinect is innovative.

Xlive never goes down.

The PS4 seems like a better fit for you, but to be honest, this gen is all about online. You might not want to get either.

I am easily set up to be able to due online gameplay, but normally, my buddies come over and we play 2,3, or 4 player mode in the house. At least that is what we did with the last generation systems (PS3, 360)

Multi-platform games play better on the PS4.

Last Friday, a Microsoft exec admitted that the PS4 has better resolution/frames per second:

Yes, check both boards and then do your own internet research before making your decision. Some people have already told you lies in this thread, so I'm recommending that you don't take anyone's word but check for yourself on the internet.

If graphics are important to you, check this site also:

You also might want to check the "vs." articles at Digital Foundry:

Good luck.

It seems like the Xbox One will be better for a split-screen experience, but it's kinda early to be sure.

The PS4 is slightly more powerful and easier to develop for, so multiplatform games look and run better on it.

Do you have a preference to either company's exclusives?
