    PS4 really pulled ahead this generation. Thanks for showing Microsoft that sticking DRM up people’s rectum isn’t the future.

    • Dogshit Boy

      The xbox one is gonna be better

      • Carbonsage

        Says “Dogshit boy”

        • Bromley

          PS4 is way better

  • Dogshit Boy


    • Rusty Hyatt

      Better at milking your wallet? Why yes, yes it is.

      Go PS4, didn’t push DRM, better value, faster hardware, focused around gamers.

      XBOX, watch TV, sports, TV TV TV, BRAND NEW CALL OF DOOKIE, Xbox go home!

      Oh, and if you want to use netflix or that useless TV guide, be ready to keep a XBOX Live subsciption because otherwise it locks those features out, even if you don’t need game multiplayer.

      Please, they are just using every opportunity they can to milk you for some quick money. At least PS4’s online subscription is only necessary if you want to use multiplayer, and doesn’t lock out other important apps/features.

      Microsoft are being very aggressive and looking to maximize their profits by sticking it to the consumers and force you to “deal with it”. Don’t support a company like that.

      If it wasn’t for Sony your XBOX would be about as useful as a brick if it doesn’t have a constant internet connection. Oh, and since your first system update removes that nasty DRM, keep an eye out because if it was removed by a software update, they can just as easily put it back with another update after a lot of people buy the system.

      Literally the ONLY thing XBOX One has going for it this round is it’s exclusive titles.

    • Aman Bhullar

      I would agree. There is way too much emphasis on hardware of the consoles but they are not that different and the exclusive content on Xbox is way better then ps4 and then on top of that there is Kinect and benefits of cloud.

    • theCakeIsaLie
  • mgsdude

    Why does the site have the wrong picture for the dualshock 4?

    • panicshow

      thank you for the advice, It is ok now

  • mark

    The X1 has so much potential with the kinect. I am excited to see how developers will use it.

  • unbiased

    both consoles look good, but apparently the ps4 controller is better so i think i am going to get that over the xbox one

  • Giorgi Abramishvili

    only on playstation!!!

  • alberto

    ps4 all the way

  • kev

    ps3 was more powerful than 360 and look what happened there

  • cuxi

    gooooooooooo PS4
    besssssstttttttt eveeeerrrrr

  • tebas

    The xbox 1 is way cooler

    • thy

  • puviuiliuvuvlilviuuvliuvli

  • puviuiliuvuvlilviuuvliuvli

  • Gaurav Kale

  • Gaurav Kale

  • sdasd


  • http://Facebook mick

    Xbox one is way better got the kincet and exclusive and Xbox live
    Ps4 is good but definetly not better then Xbox one if you think so your dulodied.

  • click

    The Xbox 360 lets you individualize your very own special device and encounter. You could change the look of your console by interchangeable Xbox 360 Faces; it’s easy and enjoyable to do. Activate your system to download personality skins, premium degrees, and a lot more in the Xbox Live Marketplace to really feel and customize the look of the Xbox Player Quick guide and Xbox System Quick guide with distinct skins. From sophisticated and streamlined to fun and funky, select the faces and skins that discuss your character or mood.

  • thy

    play station all the way. but if it was xbox 360 that all the way.

  • Nico

    Ps4 has killed Xbox one they have had to change everything to become more like playstation just to sell there crappy VHS consoles!

  • Dude

    Hardware is very similar. How the software was implemented now decides which one will have the best performance

  • PC Gamer

    Wait, isn’t that comparison wrong? Isn’t the Xbox One only 720p Native, while the PS4 is 1080p? (Full HD)

    Please don’t fuel Microsoft’s wallet, I, as a humble PC Gamer recommend PS4, to anyone who prefers console. Just brought one myself and I’m glad I chose the right console to play exclusives on.

  • jay

    But guys think about it, remote play with ps4 coolest feature ever created in console history

    • BlessedSpear

      Lmao No my friend….Ever heard of the Wii U???Does basically the exact same thing.

  • Rupert

    I’ve always loved Xbox, I’ve been playing ever since the first. I have an Xbox original and a Xbox 360. I was so excited about the Xbox One and Microsoft gives us this VHS piece of crap. It’s not the worst console in the world, it’s just the worst gaming console for new gen. I was really hoping xbox one to be what the ps4 is now as I have made a lot of progress on my xbox live account, but now I am forced to change providers because of what Microsoft gave us, I am extremely disappointed.

    But moving on to Playstation 4 wasn’t the worst thing in the world, I’m glad I made that decision. I hope you guys make it too.

  • Jemmel

    I’ve been with PlayStation since ps1 and have no regrets with my ps4 i will admit that the PS3 was disappointing but the ps4 sure makes up for it. The Xbox 1 has a lot of to features but I buy a gaming console to game not to watch tv on my tv!

  • Joe Brown

    SOME of the above specs weren’t accurate…Bluetooth is a much stronger and transferable connection than Wifi-direct (the specs on the controller were wrong), X1 Games have yet to be in 1080p native at 60 fps & Def NOT 4K ready (it has the blu ray drive from PS3, while the PS4 blu ray drive is 6xs CAV = 4K), They left out how you can upgrade the PS4 with ANY 2.5 HDD including SSD, the Graphics Card Clock Speed has been switched (its the PS4 Graphics card that has superior output and clock speed by nearly 50%), & the X1 does Not have 7.1 SRS native either…it has 5.1….

  • tttt

    i dont want to watch tv. i wanna play games!

  • albert marquez

    You all are dumb Xbox for life bitches you ps4 fans exclusives to look forward to little big planet 3! Omg fags while im here waiting for my gears of war halo dead rising sunset wow it’s like ps4 is for kids and the adults well u know they can afford Xbox one Cuz its better your cheep wine compared to our finest get real get a job get Xbox

  • Rtlegend85

    Could someone inform me why my x1 constantly needs updates for games? I would like. . . Just once, to put a game on and play it. Not wait 20 minutes for an update.
