Thanks to dedicated work of Gowans on NeoGAF, we now have the ultimate comparison analysis between the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. The full comparison for you follows:

Comparison Chart 1

Comparison Chart 2

Comparison Chart 3

Comparison Chart 4

Comparison Chart 5

Having seen all of this, do you still think the Xbox One is worth the extra price and fees that it is commanding? Or do you think the Playstation 4 simply represents a better value for gamers?

Whereas I think the Playstation 4 is flat out better than the Xbox One myself, what boxes are you looking at? The PS4 has half the number of exclusives Xbox has, and Xbox has as many 'major' exclusives as PS4 does.

Great post OP. This is a very handy comparison to have. Putting myself in the shoes of someone foolish enough to buy a console at launch, both consoles were neck-to-neck until the last two boxes. At the end of the day, games matter.

Video recording time suggests thats the max you can record when thats not true. Those time limits are how long the consoles will automatically record at all times.

Also was the 1000 friends limit confirmed? Because MN suggested its 4000.

Also LOL at counting deep down as a ps4 exclusive

Sure, but what PS4 exclusive so far exhibits any quality that the Xbox One exclusives don't? The Xbox One games seem to exhibit roughly equal quality, and there is more of them.

So it has no launch exclusives. How did you forget the SW logic rules? That means it has no games. Don't forget that after Post launch it also "has no games" you see.

Nobody buys a console for exclusives only at launch, so the PS4 is the way to go, some good exclusive games, and the best console for multiplats (because of the extra power).

One less than Xbox one+SW= It has no games. You can't change the SW logic own your own.

While that is a bad comparison, i agree that we don't know how multiplats will work out yet

Which is funny because cows have downplayed the differences all gen

'bu bu its just an extra few pixels :cry:'

or

'bu bu who cares if it has extra grass :cry:'

LOL

I think I'll pick the console that will have superior multiplats due to Kinect, Cloud and Smartglass innovations, not to mention that perfect controller.

PS4 is a much better deal. TBH the exclusives for both consoles aren't that appealing. I don't really want anything on the X box One's list while on the PS4 I kinda want KSF (if only because I liked Killzone 2) and I have faith in Knack. Both aren't a system seller for me though. If anything I would get a PS4 for all the good multiplats like Watch Dogs, The Division, That Ubisoft Driving Game, and Destiny. Next gen is a bit lackluster on the games though, considering I can pick up 2/4 on current gen consoles

Really?? Are you bringin the ps3 into a next gen discussion???

Ps3 - CELL

360 - Xenon

PS4 AND X1 = x86-64

So the most powerfull and simpler console wins the multiplat department (dat eSRAM on the X1 doesnt make it more simple)

Yep, in the long run the PS3 was undoubtedly the better machine to own. I want to see if Microsoft will do what they always do, support the system very well for the first three years and then ditch it and leave it to third parties, or if they will actually try and be competitive with Sony and Nintendo for the full haul.

rofl ps3 and xbox had the same power, while ps3 had better cpu it was difficult to program for, but 360 had better gpu, this gen they have the almost identical architechture so the difference will be based solely on power. Have fun playing games at 20 fps on your underpowered console.

Except all we have right now is preliminary analyses which count for nothing. Hell, we don't even have frozen specs for both the machines yet. I think we should just wait for both the consoles to actually release before we decide which system has the better multiplats. Also remember, PS2 and PS3 both had the worst multiplats, but that didn't matter as long as they got all of them, and as long as they also had exclusives. Even if the Xbox One gets worse versions of multiplats, as long as it gets them along with exclusives, it will be a better value proposition for gamers simply because of its library.

The power difference wasn't a substantial one, unlike the PS4-One difference, on second thought, the X360 had advantages of it's own; the Unified Shader Architecture, Unified RAM etc, in contrast, it seems that the One has no hardware advantages over PS4.

I dont mind 30fps, and if the PS4 is capped at 30fps i will have less framedrops than the X1 version and can have a better AA solution or better visual effects.
