Thinking of grabbing a PS4 or XBone - Need help deciding
« on: January 03, 2017, 07:41:23 PM »

Is either console worth it at this point? I'm looking to get back into semi-competitive gaming and I've been pretty meh about what I've seen released.

Big shooting game fan and I favor TPS's over FPS's but I love both. Waiting for Eternal Crusade to hit consoles to be honest. That's my main motivation for coming back to gaming.

The issue is that Eternal Crusade isn't set to be ported for a hot minute. I'm guessing if I'm holding out for that, no other games are really going to make me feel like I've gotten my money's worth until that game comes out.

Maybe there are some cool games I'm not thinking of that may make me change my mind about getting a system before Eternal Crusade is ported to consoles.

Thoughts on whether or not I should buy? Wait? Let me know....

I used to sway Xbox because I preferred their exclusives a little more but I honestly use my ps4 more in general for gaming and the various other forms of multimedia. But like Neo said, if you can wait, I would.  There will likely be better functioning consoles out by the time EC drops.

You use your PS4 for Media? I find the Xbox One a much better media box. Especially now since they actually a 4K UHD blu ray player in them. I really don't know how Sony dropped the ball on that one.

At some point I accidentally made the transition and haven't looked back. I have the halo 5 edition of the xbox that makes a really fucking annoying noise when it starts up, which doesn't help, but oh well.

I'm sure when I get around to getting the new version of the Xbox I'll probably switch back over. I finally got around to playing gears recently and that's the only time it's even been on recently.

It's unbelievable the Pro doesn't have that.

I honestly was going to trade up to the pro until I found it didn't.

I use an Amazon Fire Stick and my PS4 for all my media. I don't have a 4K TV and I only own 2 4K Blu-Rays that came with my Blu-Ray purchases, so there's no rush.

I bought a 4K tv the Christmas before UHD became a thing. I'm kinda kicking myself over that.

Same.  I bought a 4k HDR tv and the Pro would have been perfect since I use my ps4 more than my xbox this gen.  Without the UHD disc player, though, it wasn't worth it.  I might get an Xbox One S since it's only $20 more than the Samsung 4k disc player that most sites say to go with, but it's less powerful than the Pro and there's a new iteration right around the corner (Scorpio).

Yeah the only reason I have traded up from the standard xb1 to the s is because Scorpio will be out this year.
