Re: Xbox One vs PS4

I'm gonna hold off on getting one. Still too much stuff I haven't played on the PS3 for me to justify buying another system.

Ps4 for KINGDOM HEARTS 3!! Sorry, that just deserved an exclamation from all my excitement.

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

My parents want me to keep my PS3 a little longer before getting a different gaming system. But I'm aiming for the PS4.

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

Xbox One all the way.

Titanfall and Halo 5.

Then Minecraft, Battlefield 4, SW Battlefront 3, and Destiny. So many good games for next-gen.

PS4. The winner in our house so far is three player Trine 2. Way fun and way cheap.

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

OK folks I need advice. I know nothing about XBOX or PlayStation, my house has always been a Nintendo home (still is). But with my son now fully ingrained in the hobby he's now inevitably asked for another system so he can play the games that don't get ported to the WiiU.

He's asked for XBOX pretty much so he can play Minecraft (me, I think I'll be grabbing GTA V). Anyway, assuming I could even get my hands on XBoxOne (Ha!) is it worth it for me when I can get a 360 bundle for less than half an XB1?

NOTE: We are not crazy insane Video Gamers. Meaning, we rarely get titles when they first hit the shelves, and our video game play time per week (at least on consoles) is probably less than 8 hours.

Can anyone give me a quick run down of the XB1 advances over the 360 (I know there's more to in than just playing games)?


Also are the games that are going to be coming out for XB1 going to be playable on the 360?

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

Whether or not you would go with an Xbox 360 or XB1 depends on how long you plan to go before getting a new console. Microsoft plans on supporting the 360 for at least another couple years, but they will stop developing for it in the foreseeable future.

In terms of XB1 advances over the 360, game wise it isn't much more than improved graphics and improved Kinect functionality. The game selection isn't as great right now on XB1, but it will have a solid selection within the next few years. The 360 currently has a plethora of great games that are easy to find and affordable.

No game disk that is released specifically for the XB1 will run on the 360, and no 360 game disk will run on the XB1. For the next year or two, a good number of games released for the XB1 will also be released for the 360, but not every game will.
Minecraft will be downloadable on both consoles, but GTA V is only available on the 360 right now.

Overall, I think the Xbox 360 gives you the better bang for your buck today, and has a selection of games that you or your son won't get bored with quickly. I think based on your situation, the 360 will be fine for now.

I encompass, and I eclipse.

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

Is the 360/XB1 a DVD (BlueRay?) player as well, or is that a PS thing?

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

Ill be buying an Xbox One, (despite the stupid name) once they become affordable (AKA $200-250). I really want to continue Halo, and get the Battlefront 3. Those are pretty much the reasons that I will buy the Xbox One. I'm sure I'll find other games for it though. Ryse looks pretty good.

360 was DVD, but not Blu-ray. Xbone has both.

If I were you, I would take advantage of one of the 360 bundle deals that will be hitting this weekend. The 360 is a fully mature technology with a huge library of great and inexpensive games. It supports HDMI and various streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. Your two primary disadvantages are the lack of blu-ray support and the knowledge that in two or three years you'll be unable to get new games. As a guess though, you can get the 360 today for what amounts to $100 and an Xbone in a couple of years for $100 less than what you would pay today, so it's kinda a wash that way.

Re: Xbox One vs PS4

Thanks Aldin. No Blu-ray player in our house anyway, so sounds like it can handle the DVDs we have, and Amazon has a pretty good bundle going for the 360 at $250 (includes head set, tomb raider, halo 4, and a month of XBlive).

EDIT: This particular bundle is for the 360 E. Any idea what the 'E' means?
