With the emergence of a wide variety of games including fighting games, puzzle games, running games, the racing games, crafting games, the choice for the gaming consoles have also been increased. There are a lot of gaming consoles in the market like ps4, X-Box, Neo Geo, Game Cube and all give us a different Experience but which one to choose? There are several factors to distinguish between gaming consoles and today I am going to talk majorly on PS4 vs Xbox One.
Welcome to the Eighth Generation gaming consoles of Sony Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft that is Ps4 and X-Box1. Both the gaming consoles come in the second half of the year 2013. Playstation4 was released to compete with X-Box 1, Wii U and Switch. The Xbox-1 competes with Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U and Switch. After 6 years of launch, I found that people are still having a question PS4 vs Xbox One? Though the differentiation is pretty difficult, still I have made a comparison List for you to differentiate between the two.
PS4 vs Xbox One: Comparison Overveiw
$300 is the magical number if we talk about the costing of gaming consoles. Almost all the gaming consoles lies within the range. If You can see price details:
- Base Version Ps4- $255
- Base Version X Box-one- $300
- Ps4 pro- $ 550
- Xbox One X- $ 550
The price difference is not much between the two. So, Price cannot be a consideration in this case. If I need to choose one between the two then I will go for PS4.
Yes, this is the factor that will make a difference between the two. Playstation4 has more exclusive games than the Xbox One. From Uncharted to Marvel’s Spiderman, you have a huge number of option in gaming and what else you need? Whereas if we talk about Xbox one Microsoft was not able to do much in releasing exclusive games for Xbox One. Halo5, Sunset Overdrive, and a few more exclusive games are for Xbox One. Here, I will go for playstation4.
3) Designing and Technology
The PS4 slim and Xbox1 are slightly sleek and impressive, look perfect under a TV and can be easily portable. But if we talk about Ps4 pro, it is little bulkier than the slim version. Both the consoles have memory storage of 500 Gb and can be easily expandable by connecting an external hard drive. X-Box One has the technology of 4K Blu-rays, 4K streaming while PS4 doesn’t support the same but PS4 pro does.
Winner: X-Box one
4) Backward Compatibility
With the release of every new version, the CD’s which you have bought for older versions are now of no use in case of playstation4. X-box One has a backward Compatibility with the older versions Xbox 360 and Xbox. Microsoft is releasing its gaming consoles keeping in view the advantage to players. The players can move forward the old games to the new gaming console in this case.
Winner: Xbox One
5) Virtual Reality
Ps4 supports Virtual Reality gaming Experience while Microsft’s XBox1 Doesn’t. With a cost of $299 PlayStation VR headset, PS4 is the only of the two consoles to currently support virtual reality. There’s currently no equivalent for Xbox One, and it doesn’t look like Microsoft plans to bring VR to Xbox anytime soon. This is one of the best features of Ps4 in comparison to X-Box one.
Both gaming consoles provide the best controllers. Two thumbsticks, approx 12 buttons and a directional pad is easy to control and can be within the hands.
Ps4: Best controller for small to medium sized hands.
Xbox 1: Best controller for medium to large sized hands.
Haha! Here you can Choose the one that fits best on your hands.
Before you GO…
Both the gaming consoles are best to play, there is no Comparison between PS4 and Xbox One. This is an individual’s own choice. I will go for Ps4 if I have to choose. Both the gaming consoles have pros and cons, Its completely your call!
