Reasons to Get a PlayStation 4 Instead of an Xbox One


The Top Ten

1 It's Cheaper

Pretty much explains it - FamousOG

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

2 It Has a Better Controller

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

5 No Xbox Fans
6 Better Exclusives

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.

This is a reason also. I mean infamous second son is a great game and its only for PS4 - AlBrEv2003

7 Remote Play for PS Vita Is Pretty Awesome

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

9 Better Horror Games

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

10 Can Play Used Games

The Contenders

11 System UI That Actually Works
12 Faster Loadings

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.
