Pros and cons?
PS4 advantage: Smaller console better looking console.
Xbox1 advantage: The controller doesn't have a share-button/touch-pad that you are constantly touching on accident making you pause randomly every 3-4 hours.
>they have to make money somehow
I completely agree with that sentiment, you can't possibly get back the money you wasted on the ps3' failure with a ps4 that costs you 238 dollars to produce and that you sell for 400, you need to milk your audience by forcing them to pay to play online games and then enticing them with services they never asked for to fool them to believe the service is worth the price they pay while simultaneously keeping your old shit online servers that aren't even dedicated for developers, Sony is a cool guy that only cares about it's fans, Greatness Awaits.
They're virtually identical except the PS4 has slightly better hardware, so if you have to get one it may as well be that.
Really though, neither are worth getting. I own a PS4 and regret it.
>Xbone has backwards compatibility
This is a definite advantage, but it's a shame the games from last gen perform exactly as they did on the 360, which for many games was shitty. Eg, Mass Effect 2 running at 20 fps average.
Both are fine because as much as /v/ likes to act like retarded brand loyalist competition needs to exist I'm an idort excluding Xbox because I think its not for me.
Look at it now Sony has all the sales now and because of that they are getting lazy while Xbox needs to work hard to get their keep when it was the other way around during the 7th generation.
PC fats think if that PC gaymen were the only consoles to use that video games would suddenly be better when its false
Companies need to exist and fight eachother for consumers get your fucking heads out of your asses and begging for X or Y company to drop out of the console race
Do so for game devs.
From someone who has both
>good list of exclusives that'll appeal to online players/westerners like Rare Replay, Killer Instinct, Forza, etc.
>backwards compatibility with 360 is nice
>media support is nice, plays mkv files, TV shit, etc.
>decent controller, but not as good as Xbox
>lacks a popular online game exclusive like Counter-Strike, Halo, or Gears of War
>good japanese games are coming out for it like Bloodborne, Final Fantasy, etc.
>backwards compatibility is a fucking joke
