Playstation 4 vs. XBox One

As a lifelong console gamer, I've been following the presentations of the next generation of consoles from the two dominant console makers rather closely. For the last twelve years, I've been an Xbox gamer. I briefly had a Playstation 2. Prior to all that, it was SuperNintendo, Nintendo, Atari 5200, and the original pong machine. Xbox One's offerings can be summarized here:


The two main issues I have with this list are the lack of used game playability and lack of backwards compatibility. To be honest, backwards compatibility is what made me go with the XBox360 over the PS3.

And then, Playstation did its presentation at E3 yesterday. I can't do all of the content justice, so I'll let you read all about it in this review of the presentation from Edge Online.

I am seriously leaning towards the Playstation 4 as my next console.

Here are a couple awesome Playstation 4 related videos that made me laugh. Enjoy.
