Choosing a Next-Gen console. Without having a PS3 or Xbox 360.


For most people choosing a new gaming console will be pretty easy, if you have a PS3 or a Xbox 360, you'll probably chose the next generation of that console you already have (And if not, at least you know why you're switching) But that's not my case. Let me explain it to you.

For years I was a huge gamer, I had tons of videogames for the Playstation 2, I had played with the original Playstation, and I even remember the days when I tried my first analog Dualshock Controller with Joysticks... But then, in 2006, the Playstation 3 came out. I thought that I could stay on the PS2 for some years and then, after maybe 2 or 3 years buy the slim version. But that moment never arrived, and then, suddenly without even realising It was 2011. By that time, some people was saying that maybe the PS4 could appear at that year's E3, so I waited, year after year. Trying to avoid buying a console when the new one was about to come out.

I waited too much...

And I waited. Probably too much, because it was already the 20th of February of this year. The day when Sony presented their PS4.

So I had a new objective. Buy the PS4. But then, Microsoft showed the Xbox One, and the E3 arrived, and I was like "I don't know which one is better!"

So that's why I'm here. To ask: If you never had a PS3 or a Xbox 360, would you choose the Xbox One or the PS4?

I don't care about that things of "If you buy a Xbox, the [_Insert Security Agency Here_] will be watching and hearing you..." And also, I don't care about retrocompatibility, because as you know, I don't own any current console game.

So that's my question. Hope you guys help me choosing wisely, because I don't want to wait for the PS5... Again.

Thanks in advance.
