hi, i am looking for honest opinions. i have used both Sony and Microsoft consoles for years. i have been using the Xbox 360 since launch, i had a PS3 for a few months then got rid of cause i didn't play it much not cause it was a bad system. i am looking at purchasing one of the 2 new consoles Xbox One or PS4. i would like honest opinions or thoughts on both please to which is the better "Gaming" machine. i don't care about Kinetic or any of that extra bells and whistles, just the better Gaming machine. how are PS4 online servers vs Xbox One?  thanks

I think you have your answer. Xbox 1.

You've used the 360 so your current account will work fine and if it is gold, will work fine too.

 

Both consoles are so close. Which ever one you decide you'll be happy with.

 

In an ideal world you'll want both because of the exclusive titles but i say XB1 because you already own a 360.

 

There isn't an "overall" console that is the best. Both consoles will offer a great gaming experience.

I don't see this being a particularly productive thread.  Kinect (or Kinetic as you call it) may be "bells and whistles" to you - to others it may be an integral part of the gaming experience, and obviously the converse could be met against online servers.

Game wise.. PS4 currently has the edge, and I do see that continuing.  I am with you on the Kinect.. I don't buy a console for the fancy inputs.. I buy it for the raw power.  I went with the PS4.. and I think it will do all you could need from a Game Console.   However, as mentioned above.. both consoles are a step up from the last gen.. and there is no wrong choice.. unless you go for the wii u.

i buy one game every year which is madden. i do have 2 xbox live accounts but don't care if i move on to the PS4 world. i just want the better gaming machine, i do get other games but the i buy every year is madden. so either is good, neither is the better. that's a safe answer i don't want fan boy answer on the thread just looking for fair thoughts on it... not sure how you can say not a productive thread... looking for fair answers

 

Thanks

For games and online service, Xbox One.  As they were with the 360, Microsoft has a much better online gaming service and games.  Plus you already have your gamer account setup.

 

Not really a tough decision imo but enjoy whichever console you choose.   :)

Honestly - if you can afford it get both. Each console has some really good exclusives coming  out for them in the next ~6 months.

 

At the moment I'd say XB1 has better games but that's only because I like Forza!

PS4 is pure gaming machine
XBox One is a home entertainment hub.

PS4 has faster graphics and system RAM
XBox has faster CPU and a ES cache RAM

PS4 is 100$ cheaper than XBox One
XBox has better motion sensor which compensates the cost

PS4 exclusives: Killzone, GT5, Drive Club
XBox exclusives: Ryse, Forza 5, Halo 5

So it's a close call. But PS4 wins by wafer thin margin just because of it's price.

PS4 Exclusives are currenty: Killzone, Knack - however there are some really good F2P stuff aswell.

XB1 Currently : Forza 5, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse.

If you prefer the 360, then the New Xbox is the one for you, the ps4 hasn't got much in the way of games (that I like) yet
(I bought the 4 because It was the one I wanted, )

It does? I actually didn't know that.

Which console has the exclusive games you wish to play? from your initial question that's the only thing that really matters.

Decide that and then purchase the console with the exclusives.

I would say go with the one most of your friends are getting or exclusives that you like most. If those aren't a factor, then pick one based on your TV. If your TV is 42" or less or it's sub HD TV (1080i, 720p, or standard) then get an Xbox One. Otherwise get a PS4.

 

Both systems offer motion control, voice commands, and comparable online infrastructures now. So there isn't much to separate them other than what I mentioned above. I think the PS4 is better based on performance, price, and PS+. But that's just my opinion.
