I just got my PS4 and these are my first toughts about it -Graphics PS4 has more power, so it should have better graphics, but i cant say anything as of right now Winner: PS4. More power should mean better graphics, but some games it has been vice-versa such as BF4 (my opinion) -Messaging Xbox One - requires the slow app to be launched PS4 - fast and easy to use and UI looks like Android message UI, you can see multiple messages at the same time and send pictures and voice messages and see them easily Winner: PS4. As of right now it is better than X1's messaging system -Party Xbox One - buggy and players needs to be in the same game PS4 - easy to use, no need to be in same game and you can see the duration of party Winner: PS4. Party is easier to use and comes with less bugs -UI Xbox One - easy to navigate PS4 - easy to navigate Winner: PS4. Right now i would say PS4 because i feel like it is an actual improvement from PS3's UI while X1 is more worse than the good old X360 UI -Free games for premium users Xbox One - paying users gets old and shitty games PS4 - paying customers gets new games (Outlast as an example) and other free games for even non paying customers Winner: PS4. PSN users gets more higher quality and newer games. -Controller Xbox One - nice controller with trigger vibration PS4 - nice controller with led light used for camera tracking, speaker for games, touchpad for games and a little bit improved design Winner: PS4. It fits perfectly on the hand and i love the touchpad on some games, also speaker is pretty nice touch and the light looks awesome when playing in dark room. So right now i would give my points to PS4 because it is faster and easier to use atm. Xbox needs to improve its dashboard alot....What do you think about the next gen consoles? -Design/Size/Fan Xbox One - un-necessary big with big power brick also it is quiet during using it PS4 - small with power brick inside the machine also it is quiet during using it Winner: PS4 because it has more unique case and since it is so much smaller. -Headset Xbox One - great voice sensitivity doesent require loud speaking/talking to detect souds, comes with headset what actually stays in head and also easy to use mute and volume buttons PS4 - great voice sensitivity doesent require loud speaking/talking to detect souds, only comes with small earplug to the ear which makes it hard to stay and it only has 1 button to mute the microphone. You can edit the volume from the settings tho. Winner: X1 because it has more easier to use and higher quality headset. -Controller batterys Xbox One - still uses good old AA batterys to power the controller up PS4 - uses build in battery Winner: PS4 because its easier to just charge the battery than wasting money on AA also atleast on PS4 you can see the battery lifemeter status, while X1 is still missing it.
