Planning to buy my youngest son a graduation gift this year and he's into these kinds of stuff. I'm more of a PC hoard LOL. Which one are you playing and why?

Did a bit of light reading but would appreciate personal input from gamers here! thanks.

Closest thing I have to a console is the Xbone controller I use here on the PC. I'll ask the boy when he stirs, he's a console aficionado of sorts.

I prefer Xbox over play station with that being said the Xbox 360 is equivalent to the PS3 not PS4. I haven't played a PS4 very much but my big thing with Play Station is that I hate their controllers. I also like the set up of XBox live.

PS4 does have stronger hardware in it but that isn't a big deal to me since it is is a very close race between them. Each console also has their exclusive games (ie. HALO series on Xbox). Micro soft seems to also be trying to bring console and PC gaming together but from what I've read briefly they are having some issues with their new Quantum Break game.

My vote goes to the Xbox one for both their live service ad their controller.

Ok, spoke to the offspring. He prefers the Xbone and the 360 to the PStations simply because that is what the friends are all on, ... so, no real preference, just one of the 'guys'.

Hi carefulpunch,

I have never played on a console but here are some thoughts from research.

The Xbox has the best controller. I have one and like it.

Microsoft will be releasing DirectX 12 for the Xbox. This will give minor improvements to performance allowing more use of the 8 cores of the CPU. The big improvement will be DirectX 12 will give developers much better tools for building future console games.

Do a search for "What does the Future hold for Xbox and you will get a lot of information. My vote goes to Xbox.

Good one, Frank! Gotcha. Did research stuff online and almost everyone's choosing Xbox. So are most of the peeps here in the forum.

I will choose PS4, but you have to atleast ask him which between the two does he like better.

I'm going to get a PS4 this coming Christmas because I missed out on getting a new one last Black Friday since I prioritized on purchasing a new set of truck rims instead.
