Default PS4 vs. XBOX One

Pretty simple, which console is better? PS4 or XBOX One? Part of me wants the PS4 because of Gran Turismo Sport. XBOX One has Forza 7 though. Thoughts?

Too subjective a question, both have their pros and cons.

I went from PS4 to XBOX. I like the platform and online play WAY better. Also I think forza is a much better game.

Agreed. Basically in terms of gameplay and which is a better system. I used to have a PS3 years ago but I haveb't bought a new system in years.

You can find deals in the mid $30's if you look.

Well after looking at what Forza 7 has, yea I'm leaning towards XBOX. Thanks for the tips guys.

Do you have to have XBOX Live to run the apps like Hulu, HBO, etc? Wouldn't think so

Yes, XBL is required for anything that's not on the local console, ie:a blue ray or DVD.

You have to pay for an Xbox subscription, but I think it's a better system and set up than the PS network.

PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will both charge you to play the majority of their games online. There are a few exceptions, mainly with free-to-play games.

Notice I said Pro or One X. The One X is the superior system in terms of hardware, the PS4 Pro has a larger player base.

Having both of them, I prefer to play on my One X. The Ps4 Pro is not bad, but I only get exclusives for it.

If you're too broke to afford a one x or pro, then get the base ps4, it's the better system when compared to the Xbox One.

More importantly, play whatever the fuck your friends are on so you won't be playing it by yourself like your parents told you not to.

I like the fact that with PS4 you pay (i think 49.99/year) for PS PLus. This grants you the online play plus every month they give you free games and big discounts. Last month Dues Ex Man kind was free. normally60 bucks. Games are free to play as long as you have the subscription.

Never owned an XBOX though.

**edit**

This month you get Rime and Knack for PS4 plus you get
Spelunker HD, PS3
Mugen Souls Z, PS3
Exiles End, PS Vita
Grand Kingdom, PS Vita (Also available on PS4)

I had XBOX for years, blew up 3 of them including an Elite, so it soured me a bit. Switched to PS4 for a year or two, it was fine, but in the end I went back to XBOX. I think mainly because I was use to the platform and of course a new Gears of War came out. I lost probably 50 of my friends while I was gone. At the time I had satellite internet so no big deal, I couldn't play with my friends anyways.

Raise your kids right. Don't let them be console fags.

Jam a fucking computer in their face and give them the desire to enter the technical field.

If it wasn't for game modding in the late 90's, I can only imagine what corners I'd be forced to work.
