PS4 vs Xbox One (from a purely gaming standpoint)?
Ok so here's the deal. When the PS4 and the Xbox One were announced I pre-ordered both of them on Amazon. I knew at the time that the chances of me keeping both pre-orders were slim but I currently have both a 360 and a PS3 and couldn't make a decision which I wanted for the next gen. Now that the release date is getting closer I really need to decide which I actually want to buy. For the current gen of consoles I've always preferred the 360 over the PS3. I had the 360 first and really only got the PS3 for the blu-ray player at the time. I preferred the controller on the 360 and always felt like games ran just a little bit better on the 360 than the PS3. I don't play online much with either so the whole Xbox Live vs. PSN never really mattered much to me.
For the next gen of consoles I'm currently leaning towards the PS4 mainly because I have no use for all the multimedia features of the Xbox One. All of my TV/Movie watching is done through a separate HTPC so I wouldn't be taking advantage of any of the TV watching features of the Xbox One. Basically all I want to use the system for is gaming. That being said, am I right in thinking the PS4 is the better choice? I've looked at the list of exclusives for each console and honestly there isn't much on either side that is so appealing it sways my decision. I do like that the PS4 seems to be more indie game friendly and I also like that from a tech spec standpoint the PS4 seems to be a little superior. All that being said I'm still not 100% sure which to get and would love some outside input. I know it's next to impossible to tell which will be better until after they have both been on the market for a while, but I really want to get one of them at launch. In a perfect world I'd just get both but unfortunately my finances won't currently allow that.
