[PCMagazine]Xbox One Outsold PS4 Last Month - Page 8

Everything from the confusing UI and storefront (not that I use it, don't need my CC info stolen), poor exclusives with no replay value, and controller button placements for Option and Share button that are impossible to find without looking away from the TV. The only decent exclusive game I'v played on my PS4 was Last of Us, and that isn't even exclusive to the PS4. The rest of them ended up on ebay within days. Then there is the integrated battery for the controller that has a really low mAh rating and the silly front LED just drains it with no option to turn it off. At least with my X1 controller, I can chose my own batteries that will last 30+ hours. Plus the PS4 controller can't be properly supported on PC without ghetto rigging the Xbox One drivers, so that's another thing to consider. My PS4 is also louder than both my PC and Xbox one with it's poor fan that barely has any venting for it.

IMO, the Xbox One is the better console of the two.
I have to 100% disagree I find the Ps4 Ui simple to use. The controller feels perfect in my hands and have no problem using the shsre button with out looking. My ps4 has never gotton crazy loud and hasnt been hot either no idea whats going on with yours.

I have a gaming PC and a PS4 and I play games on both and I love both. I don't see the point in hating on one system or another. I prefer PS4 over Xbox; most of my friends have a PS4, so that's what I bought into! thumb.gif

Means nothing, this is just the NA market where XB has always been strong just like Japan and the PS4...Europe, Oceania and South America will (as usual) be the "swing voters" of this console generation.

That said, it's about time MS started to gain on Sony, they have the worst current gen consoles but their games are certainly better than nearly everything on the PS4. (Which in terms of good exclusives gets to about..3-4? iirc)

i couldn't care less about any of the exclusives for either so far, except for bloodborne. it's why i bought a ps4. but bloodborne is a great and very unique game.

that said, the ps4 exclusive guns for destiny are nifty. i just got a hawkmoon as a random drop from a strike, probably the best gun in the game for crucible.

i don't buy that there aren't good games this gen though. sure we might be lacking in quantity so far, but there are decent to great games out. so far i have gotten fc4, gta 5, destiny, and bloodborne and they have all been pretty great. the only one of these games that has superior graphics that is common to both xb1 and ps4 on that list is gta 5, but you do get better framerates in other games as well like destiny with ps4, even if it is a minor difference
