@ProtossRushX: Why did anybody buy the og X1 if all people care about is power? If power was all that matters consoles would have died off around the PS1 era.

It's the exclusives, the controllers, what friends play on, etc that get people to buy the console of their choice, not raw power. What a worthless troll thread.

Exclusives

This. I laughed hard at the title:P We buy consoles to play GAMES. PS4 has more games, and has more exclusives and has more support. This is basic stuff that clearly went over the head of the TC

- $100 is a good chunk of money for a lot of folks

gaming is a hobby, hobbies are expensive. gaming is one of the cheapest hobbies out there believe it or not. 100 dollars is very little to throw into a hobby, especially for something that you plan to use 4-8 years long

While I agree with you, a lot of people out there aren't willing to fork out that much money; there's a reason why consoles do really well when they get into the sub $300 range.

Because you just have a thousand or so games on the Xbox and that's clearly not enough for us elite players, plus we all have top PCs to play Xbox games - we don't play those games because we hate them but anyway we have the monster PCs as a proof of concept anyway. In fact until recently we hated PC too... Well it's complicated.

That is why Xbox one was totally point less for the last 3- 4 years since PS4 had a better tech right OP??

@scatteh316: no there is not a noticable difference between Xbox One games and PS4 games that run on both systems. I've played plenty of games on both systems and seeing the games on PS4 didn't make me feel like I was missing anything and looked identical while playing.

@xxyetixx: there is a difference. But unless you have them side by side you might not notice the difference. But the frame drops are more noticable. I have been playing Lego Staw Wars this week and my fat xbone had problems keeping up with that game.

If you aspire to be a professional gamer, only one console on the market gives you the tools necessary.

That platform of course is the PlayStation 4 Pro, the worlds only and most successful professional console.

Well, the PS4's library is so much more attractive to me than the XIX. It's not all about power, you know. Hell, I'll be buying Doom for the first time on the Switch...

The PS4 Pro has more exclusives. The Xbox One X doesn't have that many 1st party games to talk about this year. Also, MS released a new ad for it.

Yes, playing on a 4K OLED TV is sweet... and so is playing on a 1440p 144hz monitor. I have my PC hooked up to both. :P

I don't care for the better technology inside it........i care more for the better games the PS4 have.

So......Why get a Xbox One X when the PS4 Pro has the best games............??

TC can you (or any xbox fan for that matter) name just 3 of your next highest anticipated and high profile xbox exclusives officially announced to come out with in the next year or beyond?

Honestly if it wasn't for Halo MCC and Sunset Overdrive the xbox one I have would be in the trash. Almost every other xbox "exclusive" I can play on PC (Forza horizon 3, Cuphead, Gears 4, Recore, every future xbox game, etc). PS4 has significantly more and arguably better exclusive games like God of War, The Last Guardian, Uncharted series, Bloodborne, Horizon Zero Dawn, Nioh, Days Gone, The Order 1886, The Last of Us, Shadow of the Colossus, etc. If you're buying an xbox one x you're making a huge mistake imo.

Honestly, the only 2 (not really 3) Xbox One games I'm looking forward to is Lucky's Tail this November and next year is just Crackdown 3 for the most parts. I guess the 3rd Xbox One game would be Halo 6 but even then, who knows when that game will be release. And I'm buying all 3 on PC.

The sad thing is you've almost covered all the announced games on xbox one that have actually been confirmed. Throw in Sea of Thieves and I'd be at a loss to name any other high profile exclusive for xbox one....and both Sea of Thieves and Crackdown were both supposed to be 2017 release games, that were also supposed to be 2016 release games...NOW set to release "sometime" in 2018!

The high profile xbox one line up that xbox fans have been waiting for has been waiting for has basically been the same for the last 3 years because MS isn't willing to state the fact that they aren't trying to invest in more money into high profile exclusives anymore.

@lexxluger: XBO - Super Lucky's Tale. Ori and the Will of the Wisp. Deep Rock Galactic looks interesting. And even tho it hasnt been announced yet, Halo 6.

Ps4 - TLOU 2. Spiderman. God of War.

Otherwise it is mostly multi plats.

Made this decision a few weeks back and cancelled my 1X SE and picked up a Pro... Why? Games and needs.

I have a 1S so can still play all the Xbox exclusives (I’m a massive Gears fan) but if I was in the market for a new Xbox then I’d get a 1X.

Looked at the PS games past and future and it made picking up a Pro a no brainer. Horizon alone has made it worth it so far.

If all that makes a system for you is being able to brag about having the better specs then 1X is definitely the system for you at this point in time. Give me good games on whatever system can play them.

Unless a game is running in a way that makes it less fun, having a few more bells and whistles doesn’t bother me. If it did I wouldn’t have been a console gamer for the last 30+ years.

Cause the PS4 has games that are exclusive only to that platform.

No real reason for me to get an Xbox One just yet if everything on that platform can be played on a PS4.

Preference for japanese games. Though I do see Xbox gaining a tiny bit of *** support if it ever grows to a normal level I could seem myself picking up. I mean not the small stuff. Big stuff like Kingdom Hearts, tales games, monster hunter, and Dragon Quest. If it got those regularly I'd be down for some xbox

I have not saw one xbox 1 x review but on paper it owns most pc's. If it truly has 1070 performance at 500 then it's a great deal.

Because...the games dude. I could understand if u were saying “why get a pspro or xb1x when you could get a pc” but not this. Unless Xbox someday partners up with Steam for some games there isn’t much incentive to buy an xbox. I personally go with pc and nintendo for all of my gaming pleasures.

I know, i'm just saying i don't get taking on a hobby if you can't financially support it. Hobbies should come from disposable income. It sholdn't be something you save up for, unless your a teen mowing lawns or something. If your an adult and 100 dollars is that big of a deal to you, you should probably worry more about your finances and future then you should gaming as a hobby

I love my X1,but to be honest I won't be purchasing a X1X simply because I won't be getting a 4K t.v.I have decided to buy a PS4 Pro when I get my 4% from work.Hopefully I won't regret it,Don't think I will anyway.

I bought a ps4 pro last year because it was released. It is much better than the X in that way at this point.
