PS4 Pro or Xbox One X

Post by 5waldos » Sun Nov 19, 2017 5:07 pm

My son wants one or the other for Christmas. Beyond the price differences- anyone have any thoughts to guide me on these? Of course for the price of either he could get both the PS4 AND the Xbox One S. What to do what to do.

Does he have any friends who play one or the other?

No- he'll be the big cahuna. And doesn't really have the ability to make a choice. For him it is really all about the games and the company. A bit complicated to explain.

My brother is a big gamer and he prefers the Xbox because the handset (or whatever it’s called) fits his big hands. I have a PlayStation and the handset is annoyingly small.

When it comes to those consoles there isn’t much difference, particularly if you aren’t playing with friends. I’d google which games are unique to each platform and decide which, if any, matter to him.

But really, I’d buy a PC, which is by far the best platform.

Can you arrange it so that you can play the games on a PC to your TV with friends?
