    Hey guys need your help in choosing one or the other first of all I've always been a PlayStation fan don't know why more variety of games and better games as in my old school favourites biggest downer ps4 pro don't have the game killer instinct which I should state is my favourite games,
    overall good quality gaming console

    Now the last time I owned a Xbox was a long time ago it was the Xbox 360 which I really liked and chipped it and had it a long time.


    Now big question this is where I want you guys to help me regarding

    Graphics Specs controllers and overall styling of both machines and overall personal preference


    Pros and cons of both and taking in account the Xbox is about $180 more then the ps4

    And yes I know Xbox one X is not out yet it's only pre order

    But any help would be appreciated greatly.

    It pretty much comes down to exclusives.

    If you are forking out for a game console called "pro" and aren't actually a pro, chances are you have little pieces of mouldy corn chip in your belly button.

    PS over XBox though. Just for reliability and the exclusives. No Uncharted series on XBox. Stop the fight!

    As others said. It comes down to the exclusives. But other than those, here's a few key points:

    - PS4 Pro plays Blurays but doesn't support 4k Blurays. It does support 4k Netflix though

    - Xbox One S and X both support 4k Bluray playback

    - Most would agree that the Xbox One controllers are much better than the PS4 controllers (especially if you have larger hands)

    - Personally I think Playstation has better exclusives including the Uncharted Series, The Last of Us, and Horizon Zero Dawn. All of those games rate in my top ten games of all time. Xbone has Halo and Gears of War (many people love these games but personally I don't enjoy them much), and Sunset Overdrive which is actually a lot of fun. Xbone also has the Forza Series which are my favourite racing games, but you can also get them for PC now days if you own a PC. And of course there's Killer Instinct and Ori and the Blind Forest. Most Xbone games now days can also be purchased on PC especially if they're made by Microsoft.

    Do you have a 4K TV? If not the Pro and OneX are largely wasted as that's their big drawcard.

    If 4K TV and you love racing games = One X (it has more on offer).
    If 4K TV and you love interactive movie style games = PS Pro.

    I've got both PS3 and XB1 and that's how I worked it out..

    The Last of Us isn't exclusive PS anymore... but they do have Quantic Dream writing them exclusive games... and a few other cracking good gaming companies.

    I think it's still considered "exclusive". You can technically play the PS3 version of the Last of Us on PC but you need to be subscribed to Playstation Now.

    I'm glad this thread popped up as thinking of buying one.

    Just wanted to ask with these consoles can you connect to the net and web browse and get things like Netflix?

    Also do any of them have some kind of connection to Android phones?

    I use a PC, but if I did buy a console I'd get a Switch or ps4, xbox barely has any exclusives now that Forza is on windows.

    Yep. Don't really browse the web. From memory I think they have a web browser but I never use it 'cause it's easier to just jump on your phone. They have apps though including Netflix, Stan, Youtube, Amazon, etc. Plus a bunch of others like NFL, Baseball, etc.

    Kind of. They have apps for Android that allows you to do stuff on Android phones. Playstation has a fairly simple app which allows you to check messages and stuff. If you have a Sony phone it also allows you to play PS4 games on it. Xbox app allows you to control the Xbone and stuff like that. I think the Playstation app can too, just can't remember.

    I haven't really ever gotten into FUT.

    I might play a game or 2 on online seasons every few days if I'm lucky.

    Get the PS4 pro, all the good exclusives are on it. Also Xbox is more for the yes vote type people, sorry to make it political but it's just fact.
