If I had to choose, I'd go with the PS4. I bought my girlfriend a Xbox one and to be honest, even though I'm watching YouTube on it right fucking now. I forgot I had one.

build a PC for $400 ish that beats modern console preformance and has thousands more games http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DYDLMp

>>322990903
Wii u

But it depends on what you're into
Xbone has good multiplayer games
Ps4 has good singleplayer games
You can play some 360 games on the bone
You gotta pay to play ps2 games

Personally i prefer xbox live to psn

I only linked that setup because that's what I based my build off of, I only added a few more hard drives for porn and dank memes, and I can guarantee it does a lot better than my xbone

inb4 "but anon thats not even the best console!"
the ps4 has like one extra pixel and a few more frames versus xbox. thats the best gaming i3, the 950 reks, and 8gb ram gets you a long way. This is a steal for $460
>>
Which one has exclusives that you find more interesting? Which one do your friends have? Everything else is pretty minor.

Me I wanted to play Forza so I bought a Forzabox. I happen to know a lot of people who also have bones so I sometimes pick up games for it to play with them. Otherwise I still use my PC for everything else.
>>
The Xbox One is the better console right now.

Better exclusives in the likes of Halo 5, Rare Replay, Halo MCC, Titanfall etc. The PS4 has Bloodborne which is fantastic, but the quality drops off badly after that.

Xbox also has backwards compatibility giving you the chance to play 360 games.

The bundle deals are also far far far better value than the PS4, and the online subscription is cheaper.
>>
PS4 is the best choice unless you're like every other xbone boy. Playstation and XBox are both great, don't get me wrong. But playstation is better. You'll have a lot more fun with something that isn't meant to spy on you and be your literal whole entertainment world in one shitty box. This is Microsoft after all. The company that gave us Windows 10.. Which steals camera feeds.. Passwords.. Etc. But, hey.. Even PSN can get knocked out. Anything is shitty. Ps4, again. Better controller. Better looking (imo). I'm a fan boy. Both are good. But in my opinion.. PS4. Have fun with either or. Do research and get what you think is best for you. Sorry for the random spiel.

And you have to pay a monthly subscription to play in multiplayer.


PC and WiiU multiplayer is free and always work unlike PSN and XBL.

>>322993179
The WiiU is dying and PCs are complicated to buy and build and aren't viable for local multiplayer.

What is usb controller and things like steam link?

You can just link your pc to a wide screen and use multiple wireless controllers, playing ports that runs in 1080p and constant 60fps.
>>
>>322994428
I said it wasn't viable, not impossible. Connecting a PC to a television in front of the couch and constantly alternating between screen and monitor is a huge pain in the fucking ass and I don't care what accessories you use. With Consoles, it's plug in and play, with PCs, it's connect the HDMI cable into the television, then make sure Steam Big Picture is active so you don't have to use M&K, then have to research which games have controller support, then research which games have controller support that isn't total shit.

Get a PS4. Xbone has no games.

They're both close to equal when it comes to exclusives, but the PS4 will have more by the end of 2016

Long time PC mustard race here:

Over xmas I gifted a long time friend a $15 vinyl album (Deltron 3030 Event II) and the next day he surprised me with a PS4 because I was the only person to gift him. TL;DR I have a console with a couple of games now.

I missed some titles on the PS3 and I'm interested in playing some games that my mid-high range PC won't run. Currently I have Farcry 4 (pretty decent, more of 3 and Blood Dragon but I enjoyed those games for what they were), Shadow of Mordor (borrowed, repetitive but surprisingly fun), and Dying Light (I was a sucker for Mirror's Edge and Dead Island).

Suggestions on weeb or exclusive games? No Bloodbourne pls, I don't like Souls games. I know the JoJo games are all fanservice but I love the manga so I was considering trying the first game. And the Yakuza series for sure. Also what are some neat things I can do with my PS4? Play pirated movies? How do I into Share function?
>>
>>322990903
Literally neither. Wait another paycheck, take the crunch and invest in any reasonably half decent computer and reap the benefits of cheap or free games for years to come. Grab a cheap Xbox 360 controller and download all the console emulators.
Unless you enjoy paying for online and full $60 games...
PC cheapest in the long run.
>>
>>322991265
Easily done. Many many YouTube videos, online guides and reddits can offer advice.
>>
>>322991535
Nobody said you have to buy all brand new parts for full price. Console babies probably didn't know this but a games machine is made of multiple components. No reason you can't trade in or sell stuff to buy second hand RAM, case, peripherals and hard drive
>>
dont fall for the pc gaming meme these cucks are trying to pass off.
>>
>>322992096
Pick a console for its Exclusives

Not for any significant technological innovation or discernible difference- literally just what IP's fat corporate suits decided to buy out and block the competition from having

What a fucking travesty is this console generation
>>
>>322999313
Right?

But that's really all it comes down to. Even more so if you already have a pc that can run all the multi-plats better than the consoles that are available. The entire concept of exclusives is awful but it really is the primary deciding factor.

Then again, people have always bought consoles of their choice for their library. Arguments about specifications and business practice are 90% afterthought to justify their decision.
>>
>>322992151
Halo 5 was an overhyped joke many people bought an Xbone years in advance for.
Halo MCC is still a shit show and Titanfall is better and cheaper on the PC. Nobody even knows what Rare Replay is.

As if exclusives are a reason to invest in either console
>>
>>322999093
No PC is terrible! Don't save money, lock yourself into one platform and suck off a logo forever.
Freedom and value are bad things. PCucks are shilling because... Reasons

>>322990903
you'd have to be pants on head retarded to buy an XB1 at this point
>>
>>322993702
Oh yeah look at all these local multiplayer and co-op games that were released in the last 5 years...

Since both corporations started charging for online multiplayer we've seen less and less local co-op or multiplayer with bots. Funny that.

Lucky a PC can plug in 6+ USB slots and work across multiple screens and emulate any game

PC Gaming has been going strong far longer than your precious Sony wonderbox. No need to pass off 125 million active Steam accounts. Keep shilling console slave

Sony is a nazi for pirates movies. Dont use PlayStations to play pirated movies, just use a PC.

>the worst halo game
Thank you for confirming both your stupidity, your secondary status and the fact that you never played it, and never will play it.

>collection of old games
Yes and? They're fantastic games, and most are better than literally every exclusive on the PS4 barring Bloodborne. Emulation isn't the same either because you don't have access to the remastered versions, you don't get anything in one package and everything original Xbox and up is difficult as fuck to emulate.

>collection of old halo games
Again, far better than anything on the PS4 barring Bloodborne. Also if you weren't stupid and actually played the game, you'd know the multiplayer works now.

>dead multiplat
Only further reinforcing the fact that you never played it.
>>
>>322990903
get a fucking Playstation 2 or a classic nintendo not a nogames machine or an NSA robot
>>
if you dont have a Pc, get a PC retard

if you have a PC then make up your own fucking mind. get the one with exclusives you want. this shit should be common sense
>>
>have a nice pc
>been mustard race for over a decade without looking back
>some friends at work egged me on for months to get an xbox so I can play games with them
>finally decide to do so because why not they're fun people
>thinking to myself about how stupid it is to get a console just to play inferior versions of games I could get for pc or already have for pc
>get everything set up and join a part with friends from work
>play for 10 straight hours and never once think about any of the drawbacks I associate with consoles

I guess it's like a scaled up version of how even shitty games or movies are fun to play/watch with friends. I still can't use a controller to play FPS for shit though. So now I find myself playing my xbone even when none of my friends are on just to git gudder but god damn it's a steep slope to climb. I get absolutely destroyed and I'm not used to that.
>>
>>323000706
Winning the retard competition. Literally the lesser of two evils
>>
>>323005015

Halo 5 campaign is the worst (best level design for on-foot part though), but the multiplayer is goat
Halo MCC mostly works but lacks basic features (no player count? no search after game is ended? holy fuck 343). still better than 80% of multiplayer games on nextgen
Rare Replay is shit and I'll never understand the "30 games for 30$ OMG ITS A DEAL", most of those games are crap
Titanfall is all but dead and it's the best new IP of the generation as of now

X1 is cheaper in everything (console itself, online sub, games) and has decent exclusives, if you're not a weeb there's no reason to own a nogamestation4. WiiU+PC is still better unless you really want to play halo and gears and/or don't like nintendo games

If you're really going to play games like uncharted, ratchet and crash then you should kill yourself because you're clearly retarded
