Let's get right to the chase.

While the XBox and the PS4 are good consoles and platforms for games, I actually believe neither console is the better one. These days, both aren't doing that well. According to CNET, "Hardware sales at US retail stores fell 23 percent to $1.01 billion from the same time last year, according to a report from industry researcher NPD Group. Game sales, meanwhile managed to almost break even with a 2 percent decline to $1.09 billion. Year over year, overall retail game spending across hardware, software and accessories dived 11 percent to $2.41 billion." [1] From the gamer's perspective, this is reason not to prefer the two. Less profit means less desire in investment of the consoles-- ie. less games, which means general decline and metaphorical extinction of the consoles.

Thus, I propose a counterplan: the smartphone. The trend of games for the smartphone is actually the opposite of the console. According to Reuters, the smartphone game market reached 546.8 BILLION dollars, much more than the consoles. More profit means much greater desire in investment, ie. more games, which obviously benefits everyone. Not only that, the fact smartphones are a fraction of the size means games can be brought practically anywhere, whereas it's a torture to bring a console everywhere.

As for the case debate, the only thing the pro brings is "I love xbox 1". While that's great, it's-- quite frankly-- insignificant next to the power of the smartphone. (no offense)
