Reasons to Get a PlayStation 4 Instead of an Xbox One


The Top Ten

1 It Has a Better Controller

And you don't have to waste any money for aa batteries - codgtamk34

DualShock 4 for the win! - TriggerTrashKid

PS4 Dualshock 4 has risen to the occasion for the demands of the new generation of consoles! With Screenshot and video capture, touch pad, built in audio, gyroscope that lets the player actually lean in games when controller is leaned (can be turned off) different colored lights, easy to recharge and any old samsung or sony cellphone charger works with charging it. Great ergonomics and lightweight

My ps4 cammo controller feals better and totally a better shape

2 It's Cheaper

BOOM and it is true

Pretty much explains it - FamousOG

PS4 price reaction: (☉_☉)
Xbox One price reaction: (✖╭╮✖) - TriggerTrashKid

That's the reason I bought a PS4 instead of an Xbox. Never regretted my decision. 👍🏻

3 Previous PlayStation Consoles Were Better Than Xbox

Especially the PlayStation 2. - Gehenna

Oh Yeah, they still are, and will be. - TriggerTrashKid

4 Better Exclusives

God Of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last Of Us Remastered, Uncharted 4 > Gears Of War, Cuphead, Forza, Sea Of Thieves, Titanfall.
See That. - TriggerTrashKid

InFAMOUS: Second Son people? And exclusive content for Destiny and Uncharted and the Last of Us and so much more!

I like xbox but PlayStation has better exclusive in on my opinion

Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, MLB The Show series, The Order 1886... And eventually God of War 4.. At least I hope so.

5 Online Services Are Free

Not anymore - codgtamk34

I've heard some of the online features and services are not free, so, if I'm wrong, correct me, but should this reason be in the top ten list? - That_Dude5414

It isn't free though. That was for PS3.

Playstation u don't have to pay for online services while xbox needs u to buy xbox gold - AlBrEv2003

6 No Xbox Fans

That's kinda inaccurate

7 Better Graphics

PS4 Pro, yup. - TriggerTrashKid

The graphics so good it broke my old T.V.

Is the best console graphics

Has a better graphics card

8 Remote Play for PS Vita Is Pretty Awesome

If only more than 4 people owned the vita. - DapperPickle

9 Better Horror Games

Until Dawn! - TriggerTrashKid

Outlast, Daylight, Soma from the ever so famous creators of Amnesia, Silent Hills P.T. and more! If you are a console gamer who loves horror, it's PS4 or nothing baby! Or you could get an expensive gaming computer but for weekend warriors ps4 is great

2 Words: Until Dawn! - VideoGamefan5

10 Can Play Used Games

*cough* - TriggerTrashKid

Great because my sis bought sims 4 for pc and it did not have 3 discs. it had only disc 2. - jace_g_

The Contenders

11 Faster Loadings

Yes - TriggerTrashKid

The #1 reason why I don't recommend getting Microsoft's newest technology such as the Xbox One or the new Windows stuff because it has lots of viruses and the Xbox One can easily get slower network and slower waiting processes. Xbox 360 is the same way (it didn't used to be) because it is old, discontinued and will soon shutdown Live and stop making games. But Xbox One has only been out for nearly 3 years and it is already at the point where Xbox 360 is. I hope the Xbox Scorpio or Xbox Two will be better than Xbox One and modern Xbox 360.

agreed - jace_g_
