Fallout 4 crept up on me a bit, with the sudden post-release hype motivating me to buy the slightly cheaper version on PC. My brother, who I live with, has also recently bought it on PS4 and, suffice it to say, the hours of our free time are disappearing alarmingly fast.
This may sound like a ridiculous question at face value, and I agree – it is. Customers in the modern climate want the best value for their money, and when it comes to shelling out hundreds of pounds, dollars or euros for a machine that will be with you for the next decade, you want the very best. So when the Playstation 4 is $100 cheaper, and seems to be running on more powerful hardware, why are people still going the way of the Xbox One?
Perhaps I’m an outlier, but I’m one of only a few of my friends who actually own a Playstation 3 – the world and their auntie seem to have gone the way of the Xbox 360. When asked why, they often preach damning statements such as: “Well, the Xbox is simply better.”
And now I get to sit back with a smile on my face, because Sony have won the console war.
Following Sony’s release of the Playstation 4 in February, and Nintendo’s Wii U release last year, Microsoft have shown their mathematical prowess by revealing their weapon in the war for control of the gaming console market – the Xbox One.
