General | Latest Info

It's no secret that Sony and its PlayStation 4 line of video game consoles has dominated the current console generation. Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch has been selling at record pace ever since it launched in 2017. Microsoft has hobbled along gamely, Xbox One family playing second-fiddle to Sony's sales and Nintendo's hype. But there is much to love about the Xbox One. Microsoft has a great deal of ground to cover if it wants to have a shoot at dominance in the next console cycle, but they've been carefully paving the way to do just that. Let's look at some reasons why buying Xbox One S / X instead of PlayStation 4 make sense in 2019. Microsoft has a pretty outstanding job making games for Xbox 360 and even the original Xbox backward compatible on Xbox One. Some of these games are even Xbox One X enhance, with higher resolutions and better framerates than the original version of the game. Right now there are hundreds of titles you can play from these older systems on your Xbox One, and the list is constantly growing. Microsoft knows that this program has been success so you can rest assure that the next Xbox will continue this program, meaning all your Xbox One titles will almost certainly be playable on whatever your next Xbox console may be. This essentially future-proofs your purchase. Buy an Xbox One now and you will very likely be able to bring your Xbox One Games with you to the next Xbox you buy. The same cannot necessarily be said for PlayStation 4. Sony has not pursued any type of backward compatibility on that system. Instead, Sony offers PlayStation Now, subscription game-streaming service that allows you to play older PlayStation Games on various devices, including PC. There's nothing wrong with that, per se, but even if you own all those old games, you still need to pay to subscribe to PlayStation Now if you want to play them. With the Xbox One backward compatibility program, any old games you own are yours to play. 2. Xbox Games With Gold is now twice as good as PS Plus. Backward compatibility spills over into perks Xbox gamers get for subscribing to Xbox Live Gold, premium service that's required to play games online on Xbox One. Xbox Live has long been considered superior offering to PlayStation Network, but even as that gap has closed in recent years, new one has open. Both Microsoft and Sony have been giving away games each month to subscribers of Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus. For a long time, both companies have given away around four Games per month. Microsoft gave away two Xbox One titles and two Xbox 360 / Xbox OG titles. Sony gave away two PS4 titles and a mix of PS3 and PS Vita titles. In March, Sony stopped giving away PS3 and PS Vita titles entirely, bringing the number of freebies down to just two.

Xbox One vs PS4: connectivity

As of 2019, over 2. 21 billion gamers turn on their favorite consoles. Two consoles that reign supreme and challenge each other are Xbox 1 and PS4. In debate between Xbox 1 and PS4, loyal gamers want a system that delivers high-quality specs, releases fun games, and doesn't break down once every summer. Are you ready to find your perfect console? If you're tired of swiveling your head back and forth trying to find the right gaming machine, read on to get the answers you've been looking for. Every good console needs to run your games at a high frame-rate without loads of lag. Let's start with each console's performance. Xbox 1 vs PS4 graphics and speed rely on a few qualities: hardware Software Games itself overall, both Xbox 1 and PS4 have great performance. Still, players report having a hard time landing strong internet connection with PS4 online games. Both consoles have separate services for online gaming that have different overall connection ratings. If you want to rate your system without accounting for online gaming, try getting a speed test or contacting your internet service provider. When it comes to graphical performance, Xbox 1 comes out on top. Microsoft's console can play 4k titles at high fps without problem. Sony's system, however, typically falls short when playing high-graphic titles. The PS4 Slim is a faster running machine, however. That being say, if you're interested in playing high fps shooters, it's better that you pick the Xbox. If you want a console with higher storage capacity, go with PS4 instead. Both console distributors choose semi-custom CPU designs. Each of these comes with sufficient RAM to play most current titles. But, PS4's GPU has higher capacity. This means while both consoles have similar design, PS4 can process visual data faster and more efficiently. Returning to RAM, both consoles go different routes for their overall design. For example, Xbox's RAM looks more like a PC's. This does improve former iterations ' ability to process real-time gaming. However, PS4 has a higher-grade version of RAM which gives PS4 higher bandwidth. Bandwidth determines speed and connection to gaming server. That being the case, PS4 server connections prove to be much stronger. Both Sony and Microsoft specialize in software development and devote different areas of their research to console development. For example, Sony's team make sure to include more internet support for this version of PS4. While Microsoft's team focus on Xbox's ability to run newer titles. If you're curious about how this show itself, you can look at the hardware and make your own conclusions. PS4 also put more effort into Blueray support. This requires both hardware and software, but the evolution of Sony's specialized software makes this possible. Xbox comes out on top when regarding app integration. For instance, Xbox app marketplace has more titles than PS4. Each console has its own game exclusives. These are games that don't experience crossover into other console's territory.

Performance, controllers, ports & storage

Ports are telling distinction between Xbox One and PS4. Microsoft packs IR Blaster and two HDMI inputs into one, thus allowing you to connect the console to satellite boxes and cable TV. Considering Sony omit these ports, it is clear that Microsoft wants to win over a wider demographic of consumers. Both consoles do tout Ethernet port, as well as two USB inputs, but only the PS4 come with a camera port at this point. If you want to use Kinect on your Xbox One S or X, youll need an adapter that is now out of production. Both consoles are available with 500GB or 1TB of storage space, which is enough to house a decent collection of games and other media. Still, 1TB of storage is the bare minimum for most desktop PCs, and nearly four years into the life cycle of these consoles, space can be at a premium if youre downloading new games regularly. Luckily, both systems storage can easily be expanded via external hard drives. Altogether, there is little separating Xbox One and PS4 in terms of connectivity and storage. Xbox won due to its wider selection of ports.

The Future

After a slow start, 2015 to 2017 saw the release of several acclaimed PS4 exclusives, and it looks like the future wo be much different. From Ghost of Tsushima to Last of Us: Part II, there are plenty of upcoming games you can only play on PlayStation 4, and Sony shows no signs of slowing down, even with PS5 on the way. Despite PlayStations clear advantage when it comes to game libraries, Microsoft clearly has a long-term vision for Xbox One. The Xbox Play Anywhere initiative is off to a good start, allowing gamers to switch seamlessly back and forth between their Xbox One and their Windows 10 PC. In the future, look for programs to expand, and for cross-platform play to become a more prominent feature. Project xCloud will also be supported on Xbox One in the future, alongside devices like phones and laptops. Upcoming games are more limited than they are on PS4, but players can look forward to Halo Infinite and Ori and Will of Wisps, to name a few.


Pre-order the Xbox Series X

We finally know how Xbox Series X price compare to PS5 price. And it's close-run race. Microsoft's disc-base Xbox Series X console will retail for $499 / £449 / AU $749, while the standard PS5 will launch almost identically at $499. 99 / £449. 99 / AU $749. 95. It makes choosing between Xbox Series X pre-order or PS5 pre-order bundles tough choice. One of the reasons the PS4 prove more popular console during this generation was the fact that it launched at a more attractive price point of $399. 99 / £349. 99. That was a relative steal compared to the $499 / £429 Xbox One, which at launch had to factor in the cost of its ill-fat Kinect motion tracker. Kinect was initially hailed as one of the key differentiators between consoles, but proved unpopular with both developers and gamers, leading to Microsoft slowly phasing it out in an effort to drive the price of the overall package down with later console revisions. Sony has also felt backlash of high price point at launch with the PS3, but Sony's Jim Ryan has been reticent to suggest that the PS5 would beat Xbox Series X in price. Neither has made that mistake with their new consoles, making top-tier versions identically match. It's Digital-only versions then where real differences become visible. Digital-only Xbox Series S land at $299 / £249 / AU $499 while PlayStation 5 Digital Edition comes in at $399. 99 / £359. 99 / AU $599. 95. But it's not a like-for-like comparison. Microsoft's Digital console is weaker than others-it'll focus on 1440p resolution instead of 4K, and target 60 / 120 fps. With PS5 Digital Edition, however, it's exactly the same spec as standard Edition-Just minus that physical disc tray. For sheer value, Xbox Series S wins out then-but it comes with some caveats. Both it and Digital PS5 lose out on the ability to play 4K Blu-ray discs too. In reality, it seems more than ever then that choice this time will come down to your loyalty to one console brand or other-and their services, plus each company's commitment to respecting the library of games you've already built up with them.

Why Resolution Doesn't Matter

Xbox One X has the edge in terms of both resolution and texture detail. However, developers haven't made the most out of the Xbox One X, and many games present minimal differences. FIFA 18 does very well on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, with Native 4K video output available on both. Despite the differences in specs of the two machines, there isn't too much to separate the two versions of games. Digital Foundry's analysis of the two versions suggests that the only real difference is slightly better draw distance for grass on the Xbox One X version of the game. We'd be wary about drawing too many conclusions about what this says about the relative capabilities of two consoles. We'd say this is probably a matter of EA having not quite pushed Xbox One X to the limits of what it's capable of. It's completely different story when it comes to Middle Earth: Shadow of War. Although the game doesn't run at Native 4K on either console, it runs at a slightly higher resolution of 1980p on Xbox One X compared to PS4 Pro's 1620p. Beyond Resolution Digital Foundry notes that there are a number of other improvements present on the Xbox One X version of the game. This version has much better textures thanks to improved memory bandwidth hardware offers. The overall result is an image that's much clearer overall on Microsoft's console. The Xbox One X version is also more configurable, with an option to turn its Dynamic Resolution mode on and off. We're not sure why you would, since this negatively impacts frame rate in favor of Resolution, but it's nice to have an option. Diablo 3 is another game where Digital Foundry has noted Xbox One X score another performance win over PS4 Pro. Both versions are capable of 4K, but PS4 Pro dynamically scales down significantly more in outdoor areas. Dynamic scaling is something both consoles do, but it's more of an issue on PS4 Pro. That say, beyond Resolution, both games come packing exactly the same textures. Overall, Xbox One X is certainly capable of much better graphics and much greater visual customization than PS4 Pro thanks to its greater power. Looking at FIFA 18 and Shadow of War together, however, shows that better graphics wont necessarily be the case across every single game-it's really down to individual developers. That say, Xbox One X is certainly the more future-proofed option for those interested in getting the best 4K assets.

Bottom line

Microsoft launched its newest console, Xbox One X, last week. It features a faster processor and a larger hard drive than its predecessors, as well as the capability to display games in 4K Ultra HD. Furthermore, Xbox One X can play any game that the original Xbox One can play, and some games have added 4K compatibility exclusive to Xbox One X. With Xbox One X, Microsoft hopes to have an answer to Sony's upgraded version of PlayStation 4, PS4 Pro, which similarly introduce 4K support. Xbox One X costs $499, compared to PS4 Pro's lower price at $399. Trust Reviews has pointed out that Xbox One X has a faster processor and more RAM than PS4 Pro, which may allow X to perform better when displaying games at 4K resolution. Some reviewers have complain, however, about whether or not the price points justify new features in X. Microsofts existing console, Xbox One S, is roughly half the price of X at $279 and shares many of the same features. X displays native 4K, which is supposed to look better than the upscaled 4K used by S, but as Techradar said in their review of X, Xbox One S does upscaled 4K so well that you might not even be able to notice the difference between the two. In addition, include One terabyte hard drive is smaller than hard drive in some versions of S. Gamers who download many games may find that hard drives fill up quickly, because some games, like Halo and Gears of War, use up to ten percent of console storage. Yet, one of biggest problems facing Xbox One X is the selection of games. Many gamers prefer the PS4 because it has almost 150 exclusive games, many of which are very popular. Horizon Zero Dawn, for example, has a perfect 5-star rating from over 9 600 reviews on the PlayStation Store. While Xbox does have exclusive games, it can be debated that they do not garner as much attention as PS4 games do. Microsoft is aware of this, and in its press release for Xbox One X, company make sure to showcase many upcoming exclusive games for the console, including games like Cuphead and Forza Motorsport 7. With their strong lineup of upcoming games, Microsoft may be able to bring Xbox One X into the spotlight. If Microsoft wants Xbox One X to sell well, or even be competitive with PS4 Pro, then the company needs to highlight differences between the two consoles, as well as benefits X has over Sony console. With $100 difference in price giving the edge to PS4 Pro, odds are not in Microsofts favor. Its time for Microsoft to step up its Game, or else the Xbox One Series lose out on this generations console War.

6. Streaming PC to Xbox

For a long time now, Microsoft has been going out of its way to downplay the box part of Xbox. Whether its pledging to bring all of its first-party titles to PC, releasing some of them to platforms like Steam and Nintendo Switch, launching its Game Pass service for Windows, or pushing xCloud Streaming, message has been clear: you dont have to buy an Xbox to play Xbox Games. Business isnt how many consoles you sell, Xbox chief Phil Spencer told Verge earlier this year. But obviously, Microsoft still plans to make Xboxes. The question, then, is this: why would anyone buy one? What is the relevance of dedicated Xbox hardware when Microsoft wants the Xbox platform to be everywhere? With last night's surprise reveal of Xbox Series X, Microsoft answered that question in emphatic fashion. It is a console that looks unlike anything that has ever been release. Except, well, gaming PC. And that is very encouraging. Gadgets get described as monolithic all the time, but I ca think of a better application of word than Series X. It is vertically orient, virtually featureless black slab. While it shares design language with Xbox One X, that only serves to highlight the difference between the two. One X was designed to be as small as possible, but Series X scream power. With its chunky prismatic frame, Series X feels like it wo be constrained in any physical dimension. It is reminiscent of compact gaming PCs like the Corsair One. That has its drawbacks even in horizontal orientation, it definitely wo fit in my TV cabinet. But the advantage is that Microsoft now has a lot more thermal headroom to play with than ever before. Size doesnt guarantee performance, of course. Microsoft started out this generation with the largest, least powerful console, and now has the smallest, most powerful machine around. From what weve heard about Series X, though, it is shaping up to be a potent machine even by gaming PC standards. That wasnt case with Xbox One and PS4, both of which were built around low-power AMD CPUs. But Microsoft says that Series X will target 4K / 60fps performance with Zen 2 and RDNA architecture from AMD, leveraging hardware-accelerated ray tracing, GDDR6 memory, and NVMe Solid-state storage. Spencer told GameSpot that Series X will offer around four times more CPU performance than Xbox One and twice as much GPU power as Xbox One X. That should put Series X at around 12 teraflops of graphical performance, which is up there with some of the fastest PC GPUs available today. Series X is a bulky box, but I do expect there to be a waste space inside. Teraflops do mean everything, though, and it is clear that CPU and SSD will be more transformative leaps for platform. Name Series X all but confirms the existence of more Next-generation hardware from Microsoft, One example of which Verge Has reports on extensively.

4. EA Access

The list of EA Access games is live on PS4 now, but there's pretty major discrepancy between it and its Xbox One counterpart. EA's console-base subscription service, which includes an expanding selection of games for download along with other bonuses, offers 32 fewer games on Sony's platform than it does on Microsoft's. EA isn't just holding out on PS4 players because it's mad Sony took so long to embrace the service; all of the discrepancies are either Xbox One exclusives or are Xbox One backwards compatible games. EA Access was only available on Xbox One for the first four years of its existence, so it naturally has some catching up to do on the Sony side. Even if the difference was unavoidable, it does make EA Access feel like better value proposition on Xbox. Here is the full list of 32 games that you can get as part of EA Access on Xbox One but not on PS4. Alice: Madness Returns Army of Two Battlefield 3 Battlefield 1943 Battlefield: Bad Company Battlefield: Bad Company 2 bejewel 2 Deluxe bejewel 3 Black Dante's Inferno Dead Space Dead Space 2 Dead Space 3 Dead Space Ignition Dragon Age 2 Dragon Age: Origins Feeding Frenzy Feeding Frenzy 2 Fight Night Champion Heavy Weapon Mass Effect Mass Effect 2 Mass Effect 3 Medal of Honor: Airborne Mirror's Edge Peggle Plants vs. Zombies Skate 3 SSX Titanfall Zuma Deluxe Zuma's Revenge! The majority of the list is composed of Xbox 360 games that are playable on Xbox One. So if playing last-gen games on your current-gen system isn't big selling point to you, you probably shouldn't sweat difference. The PS4 catalog still offers 44 games, including secret best shooter ever, Titanfall 2. At least you can make up for it with some fantastic picks from our list of best PS4 games.
