Ps4 is:

$100 cheaper

Faster and has better graphics capabilities


Has wireless controllers

Has rechargeable controllers

Costs $10 less per year for multiplayer

Doesn't have a stupid name like "xbox one"

It's sleeker and cooler looking too.


Even if the PS4 is more powerfull XboxOne has more interesting features:

-Better user interface

It will not be much differnce in graphics because the developers will not spend money in making a differnt version for each console
Debate Round No. 1


You listed way less features than I'd listed.


Kinect is the reasons why xbox one is $100 more expensive (and selling less than the ps4) and kinect has serious privacy issues. The government has been caught looking at our private online data. How safe do you feel having a recorder and camera on in your living room subject to a secret government subpoena?

The graphics difference will be way different on exclusive titles. Even game like call of duty ghosts and ryse which are mult-iplatform need to run at a lower resolution on X1 because ps4 is graphically superior.


I don't think "Doesn't have a stupid name like "xbox one and It's sleeker and cooler looking too' are features and also XboxOne has wireless controllers.

PS4 is definitely a better gaming machine but XboxOne also can be used also to watch tv with One Guide.I think Microsoft tried to make an entertainment machine for use of the entire family.

You can turn Kinect off and no one will watch you.
Debate Round No. 2


A feature is a characteristic so those would actually be considered features but not in the technical sense.

Ps4 is not just a gaming machine but an entertainment machine too. You can watch netflix, listen to music, download pictures, and do many of the same things you can do with the Xbox one. You can do this for $100 less and without concerns over privacy.

Xbox one needs kinect to be on to use many of it's non-gaming features. You've already conceded that ps4 is a better gaming machine and that's primarily the reason why most people buy consoles anyway.


In USA PS4 is cheaper but in other countries such as Brazil XboxOne cost less.

In the graphics division XboxOne will catch probably PS4 because the new DirectX12 is coming.

I don't think people buy consoles only for games anymore they buy consoles for a multimedia experience and that's what XboxOne is build for.

Kinnect is no longer needed at all expect for the apps which use the sensor, so it's no concern for lake of privacy.

In conclusion I think the battle is pretty balanced and the two consoles will have similar sales.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro has listed significantly more reasons of why the PS4 is better compared to Con, but that's not really the reason why Pro wins the debate here. The core reason as to Pro winning the debate is because Con has admitted to Pro's argument. As I can see, Con says that he knows that the PS4 is better. That means that Con has conceded the entire debate and failed to defend his place as Con. Also, Con tried to change the topic by changing the topic from which gaming system is better to which system is more diverse. The topic is completely focused on superiority on its gaming aspect, not diversity. Con was completely wrong about Xbox One sales matching with PS4 sales. They're not even close together. It seemed as if Con forgot about the debate title and he didn't even know what he was even talking about. All that being said, Pro should win the debate.
