Updated on January 2, 2014

All About The Rumble Of Two Titans: Xbox one vs Playstation 4

In this lens I will talk about the rumble of Xbox one vs Playstation 4 and also try to ease you to decide which one to buy Xbox one or Playstation 4. Just a month ago in mid November of 2013 both of these gaming consoles released in the United States for the first time.

Xbox one vs Playstation 4

People all around the world specially game lover are talking about the Xbox one vs Playstation 4. They are quarreling, fighting and giving their opinion on the stand of their own preference. Some say that Xbox one is superior and on the other side some say that Ps4 is the king. But to be honest there is no wrong choice between the two either you can choose PS4 or Xbox one. You will be the winner.

Now lets see the noticeable differences between this two console and the advantages of having each one

Major advantages of having Xbox one over PS4

1. One of the major advantage is you will get the New Kinect motion controller with the bundle.

2. The headphone is much better than the PS4 provided in the box

3. Having lots of ventilation xbox one can pass the hot air easily it's slightly quieter too.

4. Xbox one Support IR Remote But PS4 not

5. The CPU clock speed can be overclocked to 1.75GHZ in xbox one

6. Lastly and most important advantage is Xbox one is for everything. For gaming, Live TV, Sharing, Skype and many more.

Major advantage of PS4 over Xbox one

1. It's much cheaper than the Xbox one.

2. Its slimmer compact and easy to carry with anywhere

3. You can upgrade your hard drive space and can add additional storage at any time

4. In PS4 you will enjoy the smoothest and more graphical interface powered by DDR5 RAM

5. It can stand vertically where you can not do that exactly with xbox one.

6. The one and only main reason for buying a console is for gaming. And in this sector Sony did a great job compare to Microsoft. Sony concentrate on game play keeps in mind the thirst of gamers :)

Now At fist if you look at the physicality of both systems, the xbox one is quite bigger than the ps4 system. But it’s very subjective thing and very much matter of personal preference that’s not a big issue. Someone may like the bigger appearance. But if you asked my personal opinion about the physicality then I must say PS4 is great than Xbox one. I just loved it sleek slim design.

As I mention Xbox one is slightly quieter and heated up less than Ps4 but its really avoidable and the difference between this problem is unnoticeable normally.

Both system has a dual core processor based on AMD technology and the Clock speed of PS4 is 1.6 GHz, and the xbox one over clocked speed to 1.75 GHz.

Interface Differences Of Both Console

Now let me share about the on-screen performance of both consoles. For me the PS4 interface is clean, neat and organized. In Ps4 I found the icons and the theme is just simple and easy to use. On the other hand as I am not a super fan of Microsoft's I found the Xbox one interface is kind of messy and unorganized at my first look. There is an option in xbox one which is pin option. I like it most because its enables me to pinned my favorite application at the very first page the xbox one. The reason I am pointing out this option especially because I don't like the interface much of xbox one. So I don't want to surf more in the xbox one that's why I pin my favorite games and easily play that game at anytime. Again this point is also subjective and some people may like the interface of xbox one than ps4. For me Xbox one interface is cluttered and not convenient at first look. But one can be easily adjusted with the it by playing some time with the interface.

Xbox one vs PS4 Controller: Which Controller Is Best In Gaming Experience?

To be honest I found great comfort and grip from xbox one controller. But both of the consoles received a major makeover from the previous edition. For instance the Xbox one now has much better D pad than the previous Xbox 360. And the Ps4 controller actually has triggers and received massive improvement than the previous Dualshock 3 controller. PS4 controller now have share button which enables you to share the screenshot and videos easily. But as I am said I prefer most the xbox one controller.

So which one should you buy Xbox one or Playstation 4?

There are lots of game lover who is in confused to decide which console to buy: Xbox one or Playstation 4. Now I am telling my true and personal opinion which console will be worth for your bucks.

From the above specification advantages of both xbox one and ps4 it’s kind of clear that PS4 is dedicated for game lover and its more powerful than the Xbox one

I personally don't like the motion controller. Sometime it gives me the odd experience like when I try to command something with my gesture it interprets my command wrongly.

The play station looks slimmer sleek and cool where the Xbox one is heavier and looks like an odd old VCR of 1980's.

One of the main advantages of PS4 is its using DDR5 ram which is optimized for the better graphical outcome where the xbox one using DDR3 ram.

You can add additional hard disks in your PS4 where the Xbox one limits you. So if you are a hardcore gamer so then xbox might irritate you for its limited Harddisk.

So if you are a dedicated game lover and want to have a console only for the game then the right choice for you is PS4 and if you want to do multi task like multimedia stuff and gaming then you can go with Microsoft's Xbox one.

Final Verdict

I'm not a big fan the Glossy aspects it's featured on the top of the Playstation 4 and the new Xbox one. It picks up fingerprints. Sometime it makes me annoyed whenever i press the power button or touch on the glossy part it picks up my fingerprints. It's obvious that every electronic gadget must come with some minor problem Despite of this problem I must say it won't be a bad choice or a wrong decision if you pick Xbox one or playstation4.

So friends and the entire game lover enjoy and explore your gaming experience with xbox one or playstaion 4. Beat your buddy and win the race of war :)
