The 5 Best Reasons For Purchasing The Xbox One Instead Of A PS4

It’s November, which means that next -gen consoles are eventually on their way. Both consoles have their strengths and weaknesses, and both consoles will appeal to various types of gamers.


Cloud: Sony SNE -0.91% may have purchased Gaikai, but Microsoft MSFT 0.93% is Microsoft. While this generation continues, we’re going to find the real advantages of having the resources of one of the greatest technology companies on earth backing your console. In the early days, expect to observe the total advantages of Microsoft’s cloud services in games like Titanfall — the developer describes the things they’re capable of here.

The proven fact that PSN is currently a paid service imply that it’s working on it, but for right now I’d bank on Xbox Live for improved matchmaking and much more reliable multiplayer.

Kinect: The Kinect never quite found its basis to the Xbox 360, but Microsoft believes in this technology. It’s a fullyfeatured depth sensing camera that, in my small time with it so far, seems to become a tremendous improvement over the prior generation. You can try this, if you need to do P90x with your Xbox. You can do that also, if you need to utilize dragon shouts by really shouting or order your squad by means of your voice. And I’ve really got a feeling that the finest uses of the Kinect are yet to come. It’s bizarre, new, and still brimming with possibility. Why don’t you take a chance to the future?


Nextgen shouldn’t only be about playing the same old games with elaborate new images. That is hardware that may actually change the way we interact with games, which’s worth investigating.
Control: Offset analog sticks stay a fantastic method to game, and rumbling triggers really make the experience feel different. We’ve come quite a distance since the dinner plates.
In an industry dominated by crossplatform titles, a number of the largest differences between the two of these consoles aren’t on the display, but in your hand. Control setting is a larger deal than it seems.

Dead Rising 3

Exclusives: Software sells hardware. Titanfall is likely the nextgen game which has created more buzz than any other, also it’s not coming to PS4. On day one we get Ryse, Lococycle, Dead Rising, Forza, Fighter Within and Crimson Dragon. Later on, I’m quite interested to see what Endeavor Spark brings to the table — it seems something like Microsoft’s answer to Littlebigplanet.
Along with that, Halo enthusiasts all over the world have probably already made their choice based on that franchise only.

Dead Rising 3
Entertainment: Much to the chagrin of gamers everywhere, Microsoft decided to concentrate on TV and entertainment choices in its Xbox One show rather than games. But by now, we understand the system has games and, exclusives aside, they’re a good deal of the exact same games the PS4 has. An abundance of entertainment choices, complete with Kinect manages, represent a valuable growth to the capabilities that Microsoft slowly added to the Xbox 360 over the course of the prior generation. In Addition, a Halo series produced by Spielberg is difficult to contend with.

Add in DLNA streaming, support and audio CDs, and as an entertainment hub for the whole family room Xbox One can handily function. I play games as much as anyone, but I still use my console to get a great deal of other things. It’s worth making those things a priority too.

There are more grounds to enjoy the Xbox One, and other grounds to dislike it (again, covered in the post). An honorable mention goes to the small sound whenever you receive an accomplishment the Xbox makes.
