Ok /v/, former Nintendofag here.
I'm at the retail store right now, and came with the idea of buying a PS4, but then I saw the deals of the XboxOne which are pretty tempting.
Regardless of console price. Please let's make a quick pro vs cons of buying each console. I just read a few articles on the internet, but I would appreciate your input.
To start off: do games on PS4 look much better?
If you actually give a shit about graphical capability over variety of games, gameplay of said games, and the company's business practices, you're a moron.
Xbox One is a glorified piece of adware steeped liberally in Essence of Windows 8.0, and there are so few games currently out for it that are worthwhile, I can count them with no hands. Scalebound is the only interesting thing in its future lineup.
PS4 actually has things worth playing, and bogs you down with minimal bullshit. It almost feels like you actually own the console, instead of the console owning you. Then, you have Bloodborne, Disgaea 5, and the technically better versions of many multiplatform games which may or may not actually be good.
Upcoming games include Nier 2 and The Last , but do not include Scalebound.
I just don't know the extent of the difference in graphical capabilities. I'm far from being a graphics whore, but at some level it is an aspect to consider.
Are there Xbox One worthwhile exclusives already on sale?.
I bought a PS4 last month. I've been liking it so far. It depends on which exclusives you prefer. If you want to play Street Fighter 5, FF7 remake, Last Guardian or whatever, get a PS4. If you want to play Scalebound, Halo, etc, get the Xbox
If he likes multiplats (which is what consoles have been ever since the 6th gen) then yes. The PS4's future just looks better. Though I feel as if I should have waited. I'm a big time Rockstar cocksucker and they don't have much available.
