    Just a heads up i am in no way bias and have already pre ordered both Consoles for Day one launch through GAME :D


    PS4

    PROS
    Great platform for indie devs
    PS+ service offering free games
    High spec hardware including ddr5 memory
    Cloud
    Great Launch Price
    Digital downloads allow you to play instantly while the game downloads in the background

    CONS
    PS+ NOW MANDATORY for online gaming
    No 3rd party exclusives
    Horrible communications features - No Skype/Party Systems
    No Twitch TV support
    Lack of any good exclusive games
    Awful controller layout
    PSN always breaks


    XBOX ONE

    PROS
    Amazing game line up with tons of 3rd party exclusives and DLC exclusivity
    Great chat services such as SKYPE/Part chat
    Xbox live gold is as reliable as always
    Free games for gold members
    Great tv features
    Awesome voice control features - (XBOX might finally buy me a drink)
    Kingdom Hears is finally on a M$ console as is FF XV
    Cloud

    CONS
    Used game DRM
    24 hrs connection to live required
    Higher launch price
    ddr3 memory as opposed to sony's ddr5 memory
    High Launch Price - Damn kinect driving up the price

    i am a huge Xbox fan but you gotta be kidding when you're saying ps4 doesn't have great exclusive games? Guess you didn't hear about Drive club, infamous: second son, killzone: shadow fall, the order:1886?

    I said no 3rd part exclusives and i thought these games were not made by 3rd party. also i think killzone looks pretty lame.

    ps4 still better in terms of price specs and drm but i think xbox has better games line up hands down

    Don't no why you have put FF XV and kindom of hearts as a PRO for xbox as its on PS4 as well ;)

    Also I think another PRO for PS4 would be its cheaper then the xbox so that would be a con for that also


    And another PRO for the PS4 is if you download a game digitally you don't have to wait for it to download you can play it straight away and let it download in the background ;)

    Updated list, the reason i put those games as a pro is Kingdom Hearts has never been on a Microsoft console and until E3 everyone thought that both that and FF XV would be exclusive to sony


    I also have a major soft spot for Kingdom Hearts

    -Lack of any good exclusive games
    -Awful controller layout

    I think these 2 things are a matter of opinion.

    They both look nice, but i'll stick with my first choice "PS4" since when I usually go with my second choice I get screwed in the end. :)

    High retail price is a PRO for the Xbox One? :wtf: I also am going to get a PS4. I live for used games and I have a lot of friends that already play PS4. I might get and Xbox ONE sooner or later, most likely later, but for now I'm gonna get the PS4. I also agree with the shitty controller layout, so they had better release an Xbox controller adapter pretty damn soon after release. Also, PlayStation controllers are rechargeable and Xbox controllers aren't. You might want to add that to the list. ;)
