PS4 or Xbox1?

i sold every console and don't play very much. However the new EA UFC game is basically going to make me buy this thing and I need one of those consoles to play.
When these were coming I read alot about them both and there just seems to be massive amounts of pros and cons with each that make 1 better than the other for different people.

basically, I would be playing this game and not likely online. I can get away with the smallest HD possible. my last console was the Xbox with 8gig drive and the super basic online thing, also had the WII U but sold it (got it to play with family over the holidays and sold it)

i know some of you gamers that follow this could likely help me with this. im sure its easy to get a hold of these consoles and accessories by now, but any pros and cons would help thanks

No console will ever be as good as a PC, just throwing my two cents in there

I agree with this statement but in this case, the UFC game is not being released for PC as far as I know. So you're left with xbox or ps4.

Exactly, i have the PC but it is PS4 or Xbox1 release game.
I guess ill probably just have to read a bunch of comparos from gaming sites to figure something out. I think I have a little bit min before the game releases.

They are doing the Bruce Lee thing with pre-order. So you'll want to make sure you decide in time to pre-order or just pre-order both and cancel the one you don't want.

Not super critical if you miss it cause I think they said can be unlocked by beating the game on hardest difficulty or something.

I've always liked the xbox better than playstation since it came out. Multiplayer is better on the xbox and I prefer the interface better. But I have an xbox 1 and a ps3

Depends if you're playing online or single player and look into exclusive titles for each console since you'll end up playing other games too.

i went with xbox.

after reading the consoles are basically the same, the xbox COMES with kinect, I got titanfall bundle for $50 LESS than the regular xbox bundle, ive had xbox before so thought it might be more user friendly to me? etc.

I didn't get much chance to use it, although I am highly impressed with the console in the UI, the gesture and voice commands of the Kinect. I think I made a good choice.

Being a bad 'gamer' I got through the intro course of Titanfall and the controller and input are really improved and I actually do ok for 'gaming' (im a better stratigest than using 10 fingers at the same time to do things...lol)

It sorta seems Titanfall is online only and doesn't have anything by myself, but I will get working on it...

I am looking into other titles and such, obvi stated the UFC game, but some others. Is BF4 the way to go? Ill probably try out Halo 5, but I normally don't do well against the younger generation with war titles usually, not only do they seem to be gifted with dexterity, but I simply don't have the hours to put into a game to get really good at it!

How long after these titles do people move on? If I get a game about when it releases is it 6 months before people are moving onto something new and they aren't playing it online anymore or what?

Im trying to get more involved and move from my 1 friend on the xbox (my little bro, lol) so any ideas and stuff is nice. Im trying to move to this from Netflix which is just making me seem like im sitting at home getting dumb, seems like interaction with video games will be more fun and entertaining for me and my brain

^ nice choice.

bf4 is very much multi player online and you can play for several months. there is a single player story mode that takes 8-10 hours to complete.

in multi-player, there's several huge maps, takes, choppers, jets, and infantry on the ground so there's a lot of different things you can do.

there's a large learning curve if it's not your normal thing so you'll likely die a lot but you might get better with time.

in short, it's a huge game.

here's a couple of videos of me and a friends game play:

friend shooting choppers out of the sky with a tank:


me knifing a bunch of infantry:


friend c4ing a tank:

I bought both the Xbox One and PS4. I'm really disappointed with both. For the price, neither will play my 3D blu-rays which makes me ultra sad.
