I've had them all over the years, but when Playstation came along, it always appealed to me more. PS4 all the way, but I will purchase an Xbox One in the future.

PS4. It's a proper gaming console. Not a cable box in drag.

Probably PS4 too. Never touched xbox before execpt at friend's house playing Guitar hero or something but currently stuck on PC because there is no legal way to get the games unless i go to a foreign country in order to buy every single games -.- Have to thanks the international countries for putting embargo on my country and only releasing it a few years ago. If enough PS4 games came out before my college ends, i think i will probably buy it and take it back home with me lol

I would rather wait before comparing, plus they haven't matured like their predecessors.

I don't see enough in the way of current-gen exclusives to warrant an upgrade at the moment. And cross-gen titles do not have sufficient difference. But it is tempting to have new things, so I have looked quite a bit into both of them. I'll start with the merits of Xbox One since it seems like it's not getting much love:
The bigger case with the bigger fan makes the Xbox One quieter, and it is predicted to be more reliable in the long run because of this.
In the comparison videos I've watched, most PS4 games look as if the AA is cranked up. I prefer a sharper look.
The console is rectangular. (Sorry, but the wedge shape of the PS4 really bugs me.)
Now the merits of the PS4:
Significantly more powerful.
I already have a Playstation Plus account and have "purchased" every free game for PS4 so far.
No Man's Sky (That is the single current-gen title I am really jonesing to play.)
Playstation Now.
Playstation Now may need it's pricing tweaked a bit, but I firmly believe that this (or a similar service) is the future of gaming. I have felt this way ever since OnLive, which failed, so I may be wrong again. But if you think about the potential: server-side rendering basically means they could upgrade the graphics power of the games you play without the need for you to ever buy a new console. I know they aren't putting PS4 games on it (yet), since obviously they don't want to cannibalize their own sales. But the potential exists.

In conclusion, the next console I purchase will probably be a Playstation TV. It's smaller, silent, super energy effiient, and cheaper. It will run Playstation Now, and it will also let me play all those games I gave up on PSP and Vita since I do not care for small screens and cramped controls.

I would not say significantly more powerful, as a cross platform gamer significant means noticeable. The difference between my Xbox One and my high tier PC gaming rig is significant. The difference between a PS4 and an Xbox One is not.
Thus far there have been a blunder of poorly optimized Xbox One games because of a combination of lazy devs (Looking at you DICE) and that the Xbox One Dev kit was released so late.

In my honest opinion because the difference is so little it really comes down to personal preference over the interface/live services and the exclusive titles/franchises.

I like Halo, Fable and Forza so I get an Xbox One. If I preferred Killzone (although I heard it was terrible for optimization) and Infamous I would have got a PS4.

Choose the console you think you'd like most, don't let uninformed fanboys dictate what you buy.

7 months in both console are nearly identical. So it depends on which First party games you like.

I prefer the PS4, but if the Xbox One somehow becomes better than the PS4 through a huge update or Microsoft just spends all their riches on getting the Xbox One exclusives, then I will immediately switch from my PS4 to the Xbox One. I know it sounds douchy, but I have not sworn my allegiance to a company but to gaming as a whole.

If you think that's a PS4 exclusive, then you fell for their marketing. That's going to be on Xbox One and PC, as well. Sony merely paid for timed exclusivity. It will launch on PlayStation first, that's all.

It doesn't sound douchey. I don't know why these things are status symbols for so many people. Like, I don't think anyone would question you over which brand of salad dressing you buy. So why a video game console? Get the one you want, the one you enjoy, the one that has the games you want on it, and be happy about it. Screw what anyone else thinks.

Play Station. It's my personal preference and has been for years. In all honesty, I don't like the Xbox controllers. We have a 360 and if it weren't for my brother, it would collect dust. But if enough exclusives come to the Xbox one, I would probably pick one up. Just because I have a preference doesn't mean I'm going to ignore interesting games.

The Wii U. Bought it on release, still the only one I rushed out to get. That and a high-end PC when I get the cash for it and I'm set for this generation. Eventually I'll probably buy a PS4 but for now I have no reason to upgrade at all.

Neither console has any interesting exclusives now or in the foreseeable future and in terms of power... well, like I said, high end PC so any cross-platform games goes on that. Sony could easily win my desire if they started drawing in more Japanese developers and got a decent showing of JRPGs but since most Japanese RPG developers are still sticking to the Vita and PS3, it really doesn't have much to offer me.

I guess I never answered this question when I last posted.

I already own both (or all three, if you count the Wii U), because I didn't want to sit there wishing I could play games for consoles I didn't have this generation. I've done that here and there for 25 years now. Not doing it anymore if I don't have to.

That said, I tend to prefer the Xbox ecosystem currently. Going into last generation, everything I did was on a Nintendo console first and foremost. After the first Wii, I ended up moving on to the Xbox 360. I just like Microsoft's consoles and some of their games. I think they have the best controllers in the industry (Xbox One included) and I like the sense of community they've built around their online service. I just like Xbox.

Still, I've owned every previous PlayStation console (PS-X, PS2, PSP, PS3, PS Vita) and the PS4 is no exception. I like a lot of what Sony's done with it. It feels to me like their most solid console thus far. But, like the Xbox One, it needs games.

So, really, it's kind of too early to be asking who wins a head-to-head fight between these two consoles. Neither has had time to build libraries yet.
