I can't really answer that because I've only really played on xbox.

If you REALLY want my opinion, you'll have to send me a ps4 so I can compare the 2. I'll also take an amazon gift card for the amount!

I have it on both. I've played more on Xbox1 as I bought it pre-order. PS4 I was able to find it used last week.

I would say my Xbox 1 controllers last longer on a charge if you're comparing things that way and this game vibrates a lot so it does go through some controller recharging.

I don't have an Xbox 1 X or PS4 Pro, I have an Xbox 1 S and PS4 slim so I can't speak for the graphics as the 1X and Pro are supposed to be nicer with the 4k. The 1S and Slim the graphics looks amazing to me. I see no difference, can't say one is better than the other.

If I only had one to get I'd get the version where my friends play as multiplayer is coming out soon.

I keep thinking about upgrading to the x, but it's still over $400 everywhere (even used)... Just looked up the ps4 pro, there's a bundle with rdr2 for $400... I'm VERY tempted to just make the jump to ps4...

I'm a plumber and do service calls, a lot of times it's for college kids and some have the Xbox 1 X and others have the PS4 Pro.

The biggest cost thing that scares me away is with both you need to buy a 4k TV for it to even matter, you also have to have a 4K HDMI cable which is considerably more than an standard HDMI. Those costs plus the upgraded machine costs, I don't see a night and day difference, not $100s+ dollars in my opinion. If it was like the difference between the original Xbox and Xbox 1 then I'd look more into it, but the slight differences (yes better lighting and load times) aren't worth the upgrade costs. I'm going to wait for an upgrade for the next gen console.

When I got my own apartment a few months back, I got a 65" 4k for my living room. I haven't really been able to take advantage of the 4k yet though. Some netflix shows stream in 4k, but that's about all I have access to.

Getting the xbox one x would (help) justify purchasing such a ridiculous tv if nothing else.

Looks like it will be on sale next week for $400. I might give in when that happens...

Plus that means I can give my xbox one to my nephew and maybe start playing some games with him. He's still stuck on the 360 that I gave him like 3 years ago...

I prefer PS4. But, I don't have an XBOX. I do have a PC. Games exclusive to XBOX, seem to also come out on PC. So I have less of a reason to get an XBOX. But, I have thought about getting an XBOX to play games with my RL friends. But have yet to do that.

I got a PS4 in 2015, to play the PS4 exclusive game Bloodborne. At the time I was using my roommates older 720p TV to play. A few months later I got a 65" 4k TV. Now I could play Bloodborne at 1080p. Wow - a nice improvement! Though it would be a while before I could enjoy 4k content on my TV. I think the first things I was able to watch in 4k were some YT 4K videos. Star Wars 7 trailer was one. Netflix and Amazon started having 4k content. 4k Blu Ray players had yet to come out. There weren't any cable channels in 4k. Still aren't. At least in my area. I also upgraded the PS4's HD to a SSD. That was expensive but improves boot and game load times. And can give you a slight advantage with being able to pick characters first in Overwatch.

Sometime after the PS4 Pro came out, I got that. I had wanted to be able to multiplayer gaming on 2 consols with 2 monitors. I have my PS4 Pro hooked up to the TV. And the PS4 share the computer monitor with my PC. PS4 Pro supports 4K gaming, the PS4 does not. Both support HDR. I swapped the SSD in the PS4, to the PS4 Pro. You can buy 1 digital copy of a game, and have it work on both consoles at the same time. I think XBOX allows this too. I also learned that the SSD PS4 will patch significantly faster than my non SSD PS4. A recent Overwatch patch took something like 10 minutes longer on the non SSD PS4.

Gaming with the PS4 Pro while lounging on the couch is nice. Gaming with a buddy on 2 machines, in the same room, is nicer. It's like LAN gaming. Fun times!

Truth, another reason to go the XBOX X route, is that it has a 4K Blu Ray player. The PS4 PRO does not. But I'd also consider console game exclusives. And as gigemaggs99 pointed out, what system are your friends playing on, that you'd want to game with.

By far Xbox-1 people may say the controllers are fat and bulky personally I think Ps4 controllers as too skinny and the thumb sticks don't feel natural maybe that's just because im not used to it. As well xbox has the better graphics and a better older community, just ignore the fortnite 12 year olds.

I miss the original Xbox Fat Controllers.

No, not this Fat Controller:

LOOK AT THIS THING.  IT'S MAGNIFICENT!!!

I miss that beauty every day.  I'm a big dude with abnormally large hands, and this was, by far, the best controller ever designed for freaks like me.

You don't need an upgrade the HDMI cable.  Only HDMI 2.1 will need a new cable, and most TV's don't even support that yet.

Secondly, the XB1X is a drastic improvement over the XB1S.  With RDR2 alone, you're going from 864p to 2160p on the X; that's a sub-Full HD resolution to UHD.

Now, the TV, sure, that can run your total upgrade cost pretty high, but the $100 difference in console price alone is more than worth it.

My friends and I called that controller the Batwing.  My hands are by no means small, but that one was a little big for me, not bad tho.  There's pros and cons to each console from each generation. I prefer xbox over all, plus the playstation controller has always been pretty shitty, imo.  Played on the original playstation (mostly tekken 3), and they never improved the controller enough.  After a few minutes playing a fighting game, thumbs would get sore from pressing the buttons.  ps2 and ps3 still did that, and the ps4 controller doesnt look like they changed that.  Originally got xbox for halo, have every one that came out since then, lately have been spending more time on PC gaming, but alas, did not have that option for RDR2 (probably just as bad as GTA was/is online with all the hackers on PC anyways)
