Default Xbox One vs PS4

Key questions:

Which have you bought/will you buy?

Why? (What has driven you to buy one rather than the other?)

-

Just trying to get a sense of which way the wind is blowing.

Neither - the graphics and processing of the previous generation of consoles was already overkill - I don't think that this new generation offers any significant upgrade in terms of gaming experience.

PS1 - PS2 = HUGE UPGRADE
PS2 - PS3 = Noticeable upgrade
PS3 - PS4 = Minor upgrade

Getting a PS4 because I like playing games from the sofa on my telly, and I like having a desk with my computer on it. And I don't want a camera looking at me all the time. Simples .

I have a cheap alternative solution for you my friend. Turn the camera the opposite way.

An even cheaper alternative is to buy the console that doesn't require a camera! I suppose it'd be cheaper still to not buy one at all....

I'm le snake...

I'm waiting till some games that have been optimised for the new generation consoles are released (rather than a game designed around the old generation, that's been ported across to the new ones).

Plus, I got my xBox360 for about 140 second hand after they'd been out a couple of years, and it's still going strong today... I'm happy to wait for a second hand one to get it a bit cheaper.

Ditto. I can't really justify spending so much on a new console for some games which I can get on my xbox 360 anyway.

I'll probably upgrade in a year or two when they cost a bit less, and hopefully by that point a clear favourite will have emerged.

my decision will probably be based on the exclusive games on the two platforms and who i know has what machine.

At the moment looking at potential games, Titan Falls is looking too epic to miss out on but that's not out till March so have plenty of time to read ze reviews online and hear from you peeps before I make a decision.

I also based my decision on what exclusives I want to play. Titanfall, Halo (totes a Halo fanboy) and Fable to name a few.

I have a 360 and have done for 5/6 years now so I've always been Xbox. Saying that after doing some training modules and generally learning all I can about the PS4 so I can actually sell them to customers I wouldn't mind having a PS4 as well if money were no issue. Alas it is and if I were to get one it will probably be a year or two.

Have my Xbox One... I like it. The controller is similar enough to be familiar, and diffferent enough to be annoying. The interface is... Not great. But I'm getting used to it.

The graphics are a marked improvement. I have the 360 version of Ghosts and now the Xbox One version and there is a definite difference.

Worth 429? Maybe not. But once the list of titles is better I imagine it will be.

It looks damn good though.

I went for the PS4, my reasons were simple.

I already have home entertainment systems and pay alot of money already for my cable tv etc. So I definatly dont want to pay more microsoft in monthly subscriptions just so the machine that is 400+ can manage them all.

I want a machine that can play games. I want a machine that is small & sleek looking.

I also love indy games from smaller developers and sony are really pioneering them.

This made for an easy decision.
