Last generation PS3 was the best system for single player games and 360 was the best system for multiplayer games (360 had the larger community and the better network making it the console of choice for many).

This generation the PS4 was released first and it is cheaper. From everything i've read; pre-order predictions, 3rd party predictions, it is going to be the PS4 that has the larger initial install base this generation. With Infamous, GoW, Last of Us, Uncharted, we can pretty much assume that Sony will win the single player crown again this generation, but now it looks like they will also have the larger community and also win the multiplayer crown.

Simply buying a $500 Xbox One because of a lone FPS being released next year (Titanfall) is not the best idea. You're going to be sitting for months with your xbox one while everyone else talks about the PS4. You're going to be bitter you spent that extra $100 for a device that the minority uses. The 720P graphic issues only bolster the pain. How stupid will you feel when Destiny is released and it absolutely blows Titanfall away? How are you going to feel when the best community for Destiny is on the PS4?

I was a 360 guy last generation. Times have changed. Sony has it right this generation. Sony has returned to its PS2 glory days. Xbox One is not the hot Christmas item this year. It is without a doubt the PS4.

Funny that unlike the PS4 the Xbox One actually has a decent lineup leading up to Titanfall. PS4 has what? Which leads up to???? Infamous? LOL thats a big joke.
