I think playstation is better then Xbox because, well look! The PLAYSTATION is more powerful then Xbox is And it has alot of amazing things! And I mean ALOT or amazing things, and ps4 even has a share play feature which xbox one does not have, so the story goes, the PLAYSTATION is better then the xbox! Xbox may have been popular before, but now that time has come to an end :) so playstation is the best!
Since the original PlayStation was released in the 90's I have preferred the PlayStation platform, controllers, games and gameplay. I have never owned an XBOX both because so many of the games overlap with PlayStation's offerings and because XBOX tends to have more issues with locking up and connectivity than PlayStation.
I do believe the xbox 360 and xbox 1 did out perform the ps3 and ps4. On the other hand, I also believe that the ps2 definitely beat the original xbox hands down. Play station 1 just sucked so I'm not even going there. But to be clear, the N64 was the best console ever
Although it depends on what type of games a person likes to play, I think Xbox is much better because it has a lot of adventure games such as Halo and Call of Duty. The games are complex, well-constructed and people don't become bored playing them. Playstation is better if you like sports games but I find their games less thought out and they don't have the great animation of Xbox.
