Without a doubt, Microsoft Xbox One is one of the most appreciated consoles on the market. However, it is well-known that the biggest competition that this console has at the moment is represented by Sony’s PS.
Microsoft Xbox One had gone through a lot of changes throughout the years and has been fine-tuned under the hood. Mainly, the firmware’s functionality had been changed, not the hardware. Even if Sony has a more impressive and smooth interface, the Xbox stays strongly in its back.
When PS4 and Xbox One both debuted, probably many people had a lot of doubts and the best thing to do was to wait and let the platforms mature. Well, the evolution started to be visible and in 2016 it will only get better. At the moment, Xbox One and PS4 are ready to be used with full credibility, even if both are very closely matched.
These two incredible consoles are perfect for playing high-end games, like Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, Madden series, Rainbow Six Siege and Fallout 4. Moreover, these two consoles also have a built-in Blu-ray player and offer streaming services like YouTube, Hulu and Netflix. Probably PS4 is a bit ahead compared with Xbox One, because it offers a slightly smoother gameplay and a much user-friendly interface.
However, Microsoft Xbox One offers a more mature media app ecosystem and has a decent list of exclusive titles. This console is available at the price of 350 dollars for the 500GB model and 400 dollars for the 1TB model. However, Xbox One is a favorite on the market due to its large list of high-profile games, including Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza Motorsport 6 and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. Moreover, Xbox One has some interesting pros compared with Sony’s PS4.
For example, this console has a better lineup of streaming apps. Yes, users will find some notable wins here, including, Fox, Comedy Central, FX Now, MTV, Starz, Redbox, USA Now, TED, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FiOS TV. To be mentioned that none of these are available on PlayStation 4.
It is also worth knowing that Microsoft Xbox One also offers the video-conferencing service Skype, which is exclusively available just for this console.
