Xbox One vs. PS4 Comparison Chart Made by Heroic Gamer

His name is Nicolas “Olive Branch” Ha. No, he’s not a member of some underground fight club. But if you’re a gamer, you can thank Nicholas because he has saved you from having to do a bit of research. If you’re a parent, thank Nicholas for saving you from wasting your hard earned money on the wrong gift. Because he made a chart that will help you answer this Holiday’s most important question: which new console should I buy?

Nicholas promises to update his chart as more information about and related to the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 is revealed. Keep an eye on his deviantART page and be sure to take a long and hard look at the chart before you place an order.

Here’s a bonus tip from me that’s not presented in the chart: in terms of how you’ll handle and maintain your gaming library, the Xbox One presents you with short-term convenience but with a very possible long-term loss. The PlayStation 4 on the other hand takes a more traditional approach.

Unlike the PS4, Microsoft’s console will let you install games on its hard drive. Upon doing so, you’ll be able to play without a disc, access your game library on other consoles and share that library with a few people. In other words, the Xbox One experience is a lot like Steam and iTunes, except for one significant requirement: the console has to connect to the Internet every 24 hours.

Looking forward, even if you always have access to the Internet this requirement could still mean that some time in the future you will lose access to your games. How? If Microsoft decides to stop supporting the console itself and shuts down the servers that it connects to. It will be like what happens with obsolete sports games and multiplayer games like Halo and MMORPGs. Except if that happens, you don’t lose one or two games. Your entire library of games goes down with it.

On the other hand, we don’t know if that future will come to pass, and the Xbox One does have some great exclusive titles. At the end of the day, it’s your choice. But yeah, I know what you’re thinking: isn’t console gaming supposed to be simple and easy?
