Is that a surprise? The playstation 4 is way more beefed up in hardware compared to the xbox one. AND is cheaper!

Isn't it odd the Elder Scrolls On-line won but is still in closed beta? Or am I wrong?


Just my $0.02,

I doubt when it comes to playing games on your 1080p TV you will see and notice much difference between either of them.

I also think for on-line play people (invariably PS fans) are writing off the benefit of the huge number of dedicated servers Microsoft are going to have.

As for price it is hardly a vast gap & with a free game less so....and some PS4 features need the camera, which takes the balance Xbox One's way.

Personally I'm waiting to see what they are like when they are launched.

Either way I'm waiting until they drop below 200, but once again I'll end up with both enjoying both & laughing at the fanboys who 'support' one international corporation or the other and miss out.
