We are going to make a comparison of the two best home consoles: the fourth generation of its PlayStation against the Xbox One. Which one to choose? Here are a few criteria to help you make your choice.
Tip #1: The console with the best game quality is still the PlayStation 4
Let’s start by mentioning a criterion at the heart of video game consoles: the quality and number of games available on the platform. Indeed, before making your choice, you should ask yourself if a particular title interests you. For example, if you like the Halo series, your choice will be more in favor of Microsoft. But all in all, if the Xbox One is a very powerful machine when it comes to games, the PS4 has always been presented as a console entirely dedicated to the quality of the player’s experience.

A very affordable home console
Price is obviously an important criterion, as both the PS4 and the Xbox One constitute a considerable budget to buy. So finding a console at lower prices is interesting. That’s what you can get with this PS4 with 500GB of storage space and in Slim format. Access to an extraordinary experience for an attractive price.
Tip #2: For versatility, the Xbox One wins
So, if the PS4 is a full-fledged game console, what is the Xbox One? It’s a home console, in every sense of the word. In other words, it’s the console that gives access to many games, but not only. Microsoft has designed its console as a family hub. If the PS4 is wi-fi compatible, the Xbox One combines wi-fi and wi-fi Direct compatibility. So, if the processor speed or the graphic card are more developed on the PS4, the Xbox One offers better additional services.

The home console for a new multimedia experience
If you haven’t heard of Disney infinity, it’s a virtual world with figurines that are delivered to you. It’s an exciting experience for kids and adults alike. And since the Xbox One is family friendly, Disney Infinity is perfect for you to discover new worlds!
Tip #3: On the hardware side, the Xbox One wins another point
Apart from the software aspects (video games, music, movies, applications…), which console is the best? Here again, the Xbox One is the winner on all aspects. In addition to the fact that it takes up less space, the Microsoft console also has other attractive features. For example, it can accommodate an external hard drive. In addition to file playback, this definitely makes the Xbox One a console for all purposes, not just gaming.
Xbox One S 1Tb with Fortnite
The best value home console
Earlier we talked about low cost consoles. On its side, Xbox is not left behind with inexpensive consoles. For less than the price of a PS4, you can have a good quality game console with the famous game Fortnite. Combined with the ancillary features of the Xbox One, Microsoft wins the price-performance battle hands down.
Our choice: Xbox One X 1Tb with Shadow of the Tomb Raider
The 4K console from Microsoft
As you may have noticed, the Xbox One comes in different versions. If you want a high-end gaming experience on Microsoft’s console, choose the X version. This version offers 4K gaming, in addition to all the other services you can expect from this home console. It becomes an absolutely perfect console, if you accept its higher price.
So it’s the Xbox One that seems to win this game. That said, let’s not forget that the two consoles don’t have the same ambitions, as the PS4 also has other arguments to put forward. Exclusive games, for example. Maybe one of them will seduce you.
