@Zee I was curious about the upcoming new consoles coming out. Right now it’s quite similar to the big debate almost 9 years ago about which one was better ps3 or the 360.
@Sophie It might be hard for me to answer your question without too much bias lol. But from my research the Xbox and playstation should be similar in the graphics and game quality. The games made for each console is an issue because some games only come out for one console or the other. (Microsoft has been trying to get the rights to some exclusive playstation games though, final fantasy, metal gear solid etc. ) The big difference in my mind is that the Xbox one is made to be te center of your living room entertainment having the ability to use certain apps, being able to run your cable or satellite through the Xbox, and they are linking windows phones and the surface tablet with the Xbox too. But for full disclosure the playstation 4’s hardware is better, just like the ps3, so it technically can have better graphics, and it is $100 cheaper.
I don’t think you can beat the N64, even with better graphics etc, the games were phenomenal.
I voted PS4. I have always been an Xbox man to date but have been very frustrated with them over the lasy year or so. I appreciate they want to make it a Home Entertainment System, but actually all I want is a games console and ability to play DVD’s. I tried downloading the iPlayer app on the 360, and when it finally downloaded it told me I had to be an Xbox Live Gold Member to use it. This wound me up seeing as all my other devises allow me to use iPlayer for free.
As such I am gonna give the PS4 a try.
@djwestwood Microsoft did change that policy so you no longer need to have it constantly connected to the internet. Microsoft also changed the game sharing policy where each game would be linked to a specific console, so now you can use used games, and share your games like normal.
@Zee I remember that game. It was the first one that really used the motion controls well for the Wii. And it is true that the younger generation is more interested in mobile gaming (although I don’t get why). So games for phones and tablets are becoming more and more popular.
@MattyJ I totally agree with you on the N64. I still have mine hooked up. Can’t beat Goldeneye, Ocarina of Time and Supersmash Bros. As for the playstation 4 I am seriously considering getting that as well so i can play the playstation exclusive titles. Playstation also is going to be backwards compatible so you can still play your ps3 games on it too. (X-box isn’t going to be backwards compatible) But as for the paid subscription, Sony is going to start charging $50 a year for the playstation network subscription.

Thank you for reminding me! That was another thing that really annoyed me about the 360…I had loads of awesome games that cost a fortune on the Xbox, and I could barely play any of them on the 360. Some, such as Timesplitters (a personal fave) you couldn’t even purchase in 360 format!
@MattyJ Yes I know the pain. I have so many 360 games lying around that I’m going to have to have both the 360 and the One to play my older games. I’m just not sure how much I’ll want to play an older 360 game when i could play a newer One game. But it is annoying to spend so much money and not be able to keep playing them.
