Everytime I go on you youtube there is always a fanboy flamewar going on about one or the other.
I thought for some civil debates about the topic I will ask the TESOF crowd.

I originally wanted to get a PS4 for many reasons but after thinking it through I am debating whether an XBONE would be better for me.

Obviously the PS4 is cheaper but does not come with a camera (which i don't really care about).
I already have a 360, so my gamerscore and gamertag will transfer over, as will my live so I wouldn't have to pay for a new live, as If I bought a ps4 I will have to buy a psn plus.
Also I think the XBONE day one exclusives are much better: dead rising 3, ryse, Titan fall.
I don't really like any of the PS4 exclusives!
Also the cloud power will be much better on XBONE.

One thing I found out today Is that the controller will still use AA batteries *sigh* so will have to buy a plug and play kit separately...even more money!

As for the PS4 I think it is a better, and maybe more powerful machine. It aesthetically looks more sleek and less chunky as the XBONE, And I Think that the back catalogue of PS games will be a real contributing factor to the appeal of the machine.

Thoughts on the topic please... which one are you or would you get and why?

I prefer modifiable games on pc as for a lot of the console exclusives they look really cool. Titanfall is not an exclusive though and will be on PC plus that game is getting way way way to much hype for me to feel comfortable about it.

My biggest pull to the Xbox one is my live account, friends, and just in general gamerscore and what I have accomplished. I do have a PS3 and have had had psn + which I must say is a much better deal probably one of the best around I have like 60 free games and a lot of them are classics. Anyways I also have trust issues with microsoft including the whole NSA bs where as with the ps4 it is geared toward gamers first and fore most and really is going for that vibe which I like.

The Xbox has been way to casual plus they completely abandoned their dream because of back lash which makes me worry that it will be a half finished console when it releases and it shows little to no vision on their part. I also do prefer some of the ps4 exclusives like Infamous Second Sons the only issue is they are not launch titles. The cheaper price point also is a draw especially cause I care little to nothing about Kinect and it honestly just kind of creeps me out. Dead Rising three is probably the best exclusive they have at least for me and still it does not sell me just cause microsoft is doing a lot of things I disagree with.

Sony has swung around to supporting indie game developers which is something I love and really usually you can only have those kinds of things on PC so its nice to a see a console going for it and again Microsoft is still having a lot of issues and stuff with that whole concept.

So for me in short it is the PS4 not by a landslide, but still the ps4. The truth is every thrid console from a company is a rough one. I really will probably wait a year and then buy the xbox one or something like that.

Yeah I agree with some of your points, Titanfall on PC will probably be much better than xbone anyway and I have high hopes that dead rising 3 will be on PS4 eventually.
I don't care about the kinect or ps eye either and am also a bit worried about NSA babylon BS.
The one major thing the ps4 is gearing me towards it is that they will eventually have the back catalog of ps games available on the cloud. Eventually I will be able to get MGS4 again!
I did have a ps3 once but gave it away, eventually got a xbox because it was cheaper but still I wish I had got a ps3. I do like the direction sony have gone in, keeping the gamers 1st and I am a fan of Playstation anyway.
I haven't made up my mind yet, but I am gearing towards PS4, just want to see some great games on the console before I buy one.
Suppose I will wait until MGS5 comes out before I decide.

Ya, I've looked at the specs of both consoles, and while both are a lot better then current gen, ps4 still has better specs. The only thing I would worry about is the security of psn. Hopefully since the fiasco with the ps3, Sony has actually made their network secure. Plus the fact the psn is free helps them out aswell, especially when considering we don't actually know what the business model is yet

It has already been confirmed that for next gen we will need to but a PS plus account to play online, It is currently the same price as XBL anyway.

My only problem with that is that I already have XBL untill next year and would be paying for both if I got a PS4 as if I got a Xbone, The account will be useable for both xbone and 360.

Yea I agree I have xbl too for another year almost which is an issue cause I really don't want to have to get play station plus and then all that its a little tiresome. I do prefer the 360 community and interface, but the ps4 is gearing itself up to be more online and all that with cross game chat so that really is not a concern anymore though it is a little odd they took so long to adopt that feature lol.

It really is such a toss up between them honestly what I might do is talk to people I would like to play games with and go where we all think would be best for us kind of thing group decision type stuff.

Figure I'd resurrect this bitch. Gonna give you guys some new info that will help in your decision making! (I am more of a Xbox fan so Sony fans you might find this biased)

- PS4 $400 / X1 $500

- PSN costs $50 yearly, XBL $60

- PS4 gets around 5k servers for online, X1 gets 300k, and game devs get there own independent server or something

- X1 has that cool snap thing where you can do 2 things at once on the same screen (play a game while watching tv, good luck trying to do that and not suck extremely bad at the game)

- PS4 got that power! On paper, looks like a much powerful system then the X1. When it comes down to it you won't notice a difference unless comparing side by side. And yes, X1 will still have 1080p games.

- Kinect is no longer needed to play your X1, although it still does come with every console at launch. I hated the first Kinect, got it and used it a few times and now it's all dusty. But this Kinect 2.0 seems pretty neat. You can use it for voice commands, skype, facial recognition (automatically signs you in to your profile), controller tracking, government spying... JK, everyone has phones, laptops and all the other shit with cameras, not sure why everyone thinks the Kinect invades privacy, but hey, you can now just unplug it!

- You don't need to be connected to the internet to play X1 games offline (?)

- PS4 controller a big improvement over the dualshock 3, waaaay more comfortable. X1 controller similar to 360 just smaller with some vibrating handles and triggers or something fancy like that.

-X1 now supports indie game developers or some shit, idk much about that cause idc.

-You can stream from your console which is cool if you like doing that, except apparently it sucks atm for PS4 (480p and no sound is what I heard). X1 was gonna have streaming to twitch at launch but it now won't be available until early 2014 (X1 still has some video editing program thing that you can download videos to skydrive or xbox community)

- PS4 design looks WAY better then the X1, I was pretty impressed when I actually saw it. X1 is ugly. I read some concerns about the PS4 of overheating since it is so small, so I guess we will wait and see.

My experience with PS4 was good, had no problems with it, and it was quick. I loved the controllers although I find the new start/select now called share/options to be in a odd place, and I really can't say I care about the touchpad (haven't tried it), I just don't care for the touchpad or that controller tilting funky shit. I found the UI to be confusing and messy at first, I'm sure you can get use to it but it's just all over the place. The PS4 console is much better then the PS3 but only in terms of graphics, since it's a gaming console only, it doesn't really do anything else so don't expect much innovation.

PS4 did have some launch problems, some consoles wouldn't turn on, some broke when installing BF4 or other games, PSN was down for maintenace a bit at launch. But those (besides PSN being down) could happen to anything during a launch, not every console will work perfectly.

X1 (in my opinion!) is more next gen then the PS4 because it brings everything into one, and has innovative ways of doing the every day thing. Because some people are too lazy to press a button and who wouldn't like to say "Xbox go home... you're drunk".

I will be getting a X1 because of how it does more, and I prefer the X1 exclusives over PS4. If you want a great all in one console with great games, go for the X1. If you want a great gaming console that will eventually have great games (cause lets be honest there launch games were... hahaha) go PS4. If you're stupid and like shitty games, get the WiiU (jokes, don't get all mad Nintendo fans). Pretty much your decision, they will both be great consoles and I am sure you will be happy with the one you decide to go with.

Yeah, definitely big, ugly and square. If they come out with a new design in a few years I am pretty sure I'd buy that one just so I don't have to look at this thing lol.

Ps4 will be the one I eventually wind up purchasing. I have always preferred Sony exclusives. I will never get Xbone so long as it's sold with Crapnect 2.0...

I don't give a shit about graphics or game exclusives. That said, Xbox One for me, thanks.

Microsoft and Sony will continue supporting the PS3 and Xbox360 for another 4 years. So it will still receive updates and games. I plan to build a PC but keep my 360 so I can continue playing my console exclusives. But, to answer your question, I will probably get a PS4, but only when I absolutely have to upgrade.

I may be getting a PS4 sometime between Spring and Summer of 2014, and much better than what I can say about my plans to get an Xboner; if I at all get an MS Xboner, it must be at least used, preferably hardmodded - but I will definitely not pay money just to have it count as an Xboner sale sale. Everything that MS revealed this year about it has felt like just one big embarrassment after another, and not the least of which being the name of their console system.
