    XBOX or PS?

    Currently have a PS 2, but the (locally) available sources for games for it are drying up, so thinking about upgrading. Leaning towards the PS due to title selection seems better, but the XBOX controllers are more comfortable...

    If I go the PlayStation route, I'm torn between the PS 3 and the PS 4.

    One on hand, the PS 3 would be cheaper, but then I might be in the same boat as I'm in with the PS 2 now when it comes to game selection in a couple of years...

    Having been on this earth through most of the development of video games, I have to say that nothing has really "blown me away" about computer graphics since about the time in the mid 1990's that real rendered polygons (like those in PS games) replaced sprites-painted-on-walls (like Doom and the early SNES racing games). It's just been a gradual steady increase in detail. The artwork of the character design is usually more interesting.

    Take a look at what you like. Since there are games on each platform than don't cross over (halo, final fantasy, etc) you need to decide what you like better. We have 2 360s in the house now, but when it's time to upgrade (when the price drops more) I think the boy is going to get the XBone, and I'll take the PS4 (FF VII for the win)

    I plan to eventually own both due to console exclusive games... But my first choice was, by far, the PS4. Been a gamer all my life, and I use to be partial to the Xbox only. But after purchasing a PS3, I rarely played the Xbox. IMHO, PS4 blows the Xbox one away.

    My son has played on just about every console between in store demo units and what his friends have. He really wants a PS3 because there is a WWE title that he can't get for the PS2.

    There is a Family Video in town and they rent consoles. We just haven't gone this route because they essentially charge full retail and then refund the security deposit.

    I couldn't resist. Being an original Zune owner, it makes me laugh everytime I see it.

    if i were to buy either, it would be the ps 4 because of the controller and sf,
    but the xbox will have backwards compatibility and that kinda wins me over to. because I am buying all new games for the ps.

    Popped into a Game Stop today and had a nice chat with the staff there. Wife and I both were leaning towards the PS 4 due to our familiarity with the PS 2, but after finding out about how the XBOX One will play the XBOX 360 titles, plus the plans to release even more older titles, and the ability to run Windows 10... we've decided we are going to get together with our son and go over the title selection for both formats. As it stands right now, virtually every title I'm interested in can be had on both to some degree (Tekken 6 and Tag on XBOX, for example).

    Our 360 has been working for ... I think this is its 4th year. Our son wants an xbox one (moar halo) but we are not getting there yet. Backward compatibility is great though if we do go for it.

    PS4 has slightly better graphics, I find the PS4 controllers fit my hand better than the Xbox one controllers do, the pricepoint is about the same now though... my one complaint is a favorite game series of mine is xbox only sadly(GoW). I can't speak for the xbox service, but with PS+ service the "free" games are actually mostly worth playing.

    On the other hand... my 6-7 year old xbox 360 is still kicking and has served me loyally through several drops and crashes.. it does have some quirks now but it was never designed to survive the abuse it has lived through.
