For the serious gamer, there’s nothing quite like having a console with the latest technology. And if you’re in the market for this kind of system, your options are pretty much PS4 and Xbox One. But that begs another question: Which is better? And what about their less expensive cousins, the PS4 Slim or Xbox One S? We put all four to the test and found out which machine is right for you.
The PS4 Pro is the newest console on the market, and it offers some great benefits over its older sibling. The biggest of these is 4K gaming—if you own a 4K TV, then this system will be able to take advantage of it by outputting games in super-high resolution. The same goes for VR: if you’re interested in playing VR titles like Resident Evil 7 or Star Wars Battlefront X-Wing Mission on Sony’s headset (or any other compatible hardware), then this console will also allow that to happen at a higher resolution than its predecessor could offer.
Another perk of choosing the PS4 Pro over its forerunner is its ability to stream content from services like Netflix and YouTube without having any lag whatsoever; this was something that some early adopters complained about with their original consoles when using those streaming apps because they were unable to handle them properly when compared with other devices such as PCs or smartphones which have much better internet connections than game consoles do due mostly just being designed for gaming purposes so don’t have much else going on in terms of usage besides maybe watching movies once every few months at most times since most people are usually too busy playing games all day long instead!
Xbox One S
So, what is the Xbox One S?
The Xbox One S is a version of the original Xbox One that’s smaller and more compact. It has all of the same features as its bigger counterpart but comes in at 40% smaller than its predecessor. The console itself sits horizontally rather than vertically and has an internal power supply (the first in a gaming console). This makes it more convenient for storing and moving around your living room or bedroom. In addition to being smaller, it also supports 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray playback for those who want to watch their favorite movies on this high-definition screen. The only issue with this new feature is that it requires you to purchase a separate player if you don’t already have one at home.
Which is best for PS4 fans?
If you’re a fan of Sony’s games and have a 4K TV, the PS4 Pro is the best option. If you want to play games with friends, it’s also a good choice since it has the most online multiplayer options.
Which is best for Xbox fans?
- If you’re an Xbox fan, then the Xbox One S is probably your best bet. It comes with a built-in 4K Blu-ray player and supports HDR gaming, which means that it can be used to stream 4K content from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
- The PS4 Pro doesn’t have those features, so if those are important to you (and they should be), stick with the Xbox One S.
Which is best for the kids?
- Xbox One S is better for kids because of the better parental controls. While both consoles offer parental controls, the Xbox One’s are more robust and allow you to manage your child’s gaming time as well as which games they can play. You can even set up restricted profiles that prevent your child from seeing certain things like explicit images in games or watching age-inappropriate movies on Netflix.
- Xbox One S is better for kids because of the better game library. The Xbox One has more exclusive titles than Sony does, including some pretty great family games like Minecraft: Story Mode (episodes 1-5), Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Lego Worlds. In addition to its own offerings, Microsoft also has partnerships with major publishers like Disney Interactive Studios and Electronic Arts that allow them to release new versions of popular franchises exclusively on their platform at no extra cost (e.g., Avengers: Battle for Earth).
- Xbox One S is better for kids because of the better graphics/resolution
If you’re looking for high resolution graphics then you’ll want an Xbox One S over a PS4 Pro because it has 4K capability while still retaining compatibility with all existing 1080p TVs out there today; however if your TV supports HDR10 then either console will look great since both support HDR output (though only via streaming services).
It depends on what you want to spend and how often you play.
It depends on what you want to spend and how often you play. If you’re looking for a great gaming experience with friends, the PlayStation 4 offers a few more options than the Xbox One S. The PS4 Pro has features such as supersampling—which helps improve graphics on older games—and higher frame rates that make it perfect for playing first-person shooters or fighting games online.
The Xbox One S provides a better viewing experience than the original version of its console, thanks to its support for 4K video streaming and HDR (high dynamic range). It also includes an internal power supply that allows for smaller systems—one advantage over Sony’s PS4 Pro model, which requires an external adapter in addition to its separate power brick.
So, which console is right for you? That depends on what you want to spend and how often you play.
If price is an issue, then the Xbox One S is the better choice: it’s cheaper, has more games available and comes with a 4K Blu-ray player built in.
If you’re looking for a console that will see you through this generation of technology but can’t wait for next year when we expect to see new ones being released—the PlayStation 4 Pro delivers on both fronts. It may seem expensive at first glance, but if we look at all its features and compare it against other consoles like Microsoft’s Xbox One X or Nintendo Wii U then we see that even though it costs quite a bit more than either of those options it doesn’t actually have much less functionality than they do overall. And if your budget can afford some extra money spent on games rather than hardware then this might just be the way forward.”
