    I like this version much better than the original PS4. It’s less clunky and has buttons to press rather than motion sensors. I love the matte finish and the fact that the placeholders on the bottom are the X,O, □, and triangle buttons on the controller.

    I’m writing this from the most unbiased perspective. I had both PS4 and XB1 but I decided to finally make the full switch to PC gaming. I also posting a similar review for the XB1. This two machines, the PS4 Slim and Xbox One S are the closest competitors we have ever had in video games. I write this on the day that God of War came out and that’s my pick for one of the advantages to the PS4. The exclusives, all tastes are subjective but there are more on PS4. The series that got me to give the PS4 a try is the Yakuza series. You can’t get that on XB1. You can’t get Nioh on XB1 and then there’s one that to me is a major statement and that’s MLB The Show. I personally don’t play many sports games but I used to and I hated not having a baseball game. So, I think in this generation, Sony has done better in the gaming battle. One of the thing I always do is wait until the next console comes out then I go back and buy up a bunch of games I didn’t get to play. Sony will have more in that group.

    The machine itself is nice and compact for a current generation console. It makes zero noise or at least I never heard it. You can hook an external USB hard drive up to it to increase storage. Here’s my first problem with it. I don’t like the controller. A lot of people say it’s improved but I don’t agree. The first time I played a game I didn’t realize the controller has a speaker in it and that makes no sense to me. You can turn the speaker down but why fool with putting it in there? And on top of the controller it has a light that stays on. Not just a small light but a roughly 1 inch by 3 inch light that glows. You can dim it but you can’t turn it off. It also has a motion pad between the analog sticks that makes no sense to me. It comes with a HDMI, a USB to charge or connect your controller to the console and the one thing a lot of people point out is you can’t watch 4K DVD movies on it. I don’t watch 4K movies so I don’t know much more about that part. I just know you can’t.

    The WiFi doesn’t connect as good as it should. My router is 8-9 ft from the console. There are no obstructions between the console and router. As a matter of fact, I had the XB1 on the shelf above the PS4 and was getting 58 Mbps download with the PS4 and 112 Mbps with the XB1. I mention these for a reason.

    There’s roughly 15-20 games that I will buy over the course of a console’s life. I was very intrigued by Sony’s PS Now. God of War is one of my all-time favorite series, I have reviews here on Amazon of the first two God of War games and those were posted back before 2010. I wanted to play all of them again and PS Now had all of them included in your subscription but I had streaming problems. It wasn’t terrible but if you’ve ever played God of War you know that the jumps lead to many character deaths as it is. Wait until your connection stutters when you go to jump. I did enjoy the PS Now overall. I don’t know that I accept it as a backwards compatibility alternate option. If you have PS Plus and PS Now, you have over a hundred and fifty dollars in yearly subscriptions.

    Overall, the PS4 to me doesn’t quite measure up to the XB1. It’s very close and the only real difference is I’m looking at a system you can jump right into without needing subscriptions, not looking over the controller I hated, either. The advantages of having more exclusives is true but XB1 has free backward compatibility. I know a lot of gamers today ask why you want to play an old game. Simple. I don’t want to spend sixty dollars every few weeks to get a new game. Plus, there are games that offer a nostalgic experience. I’ll give you a couple of examples of games that fit this. Fallout 3 GotY, Fallout New Vegas, Red Dead Redemption, three of my all-time favorite games. All are backwards compatible on the XB1, all are available on PS Now but neither Fallout 3 or New Vegas has their DLC on PS Now, you can only play the vanilla games and you have to pay a hundred dollars a year.

    I’m still going to rate both systems the same. I think you’ll do fine and be happy with either. I just believe for what I was looking for, the XB1 offered me more. I will say that PS Plus had better free games than Xbox Live Gold but again, that’s subjective.
