With constantly competing sales, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have surpassed Nintendo as the most popular game systems. Both offer a modern gaming experience with amazing graphics and a range of popular games, but each has benefits and drawbacks. Unless you’re a diehard brand loyalist, here are some tips to choose the best gaming console for your needs:
- Where are your friends? Gaming today is a social experience. You can play with friends around the world without being in the same room. If all of your friends are on one console and you want to play with them, that device may be the best choice for you.
- To corner the market, gaming systems always have exclusive titles. If you’re buying a system for a particular game, make sure the system you’re leaning toward carries it.
- Media connectivity. Both consoles offer an unprecedented level of connectivity right from the console. Both support Blu-ray and popular streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu, but Xbox One supports cable connectivity for a seamless television experience through the console.
The Xbox One and the PS4 are equally high performing consoles, and deciding on one over the other is largely a matter of preference. What you’ll be using the system for, the interface experience, and the feel of the controller may all affect your decision.
