Micro$oft XBox 1 vs $ony PS4 . . .
Andy, you forgot the most important thing!
When these two devices become retro, you can only still play on PS4, as once the servers go shut down for X-Bone ( yes that's my new monica for this relic ) it dies with it!

Yeah my son told me yesterday that MS had scrapped the idea of having to be connected 24/7 to play offline games and also not being able to play 2nd hand games.
Word must have got around !! ;D
Always preferred the Xbox myself, but I am starting to sway towards the PS4.
Even if MS do a u turn I'm so peed off with them, I'm thinking PS4 🙂
For fun, and because I felt Sony deserved a bit of a pat on the back for not trying to screw us over (this time), I pre-ordered the PS4.
As much as I'm glad to see Microsoft backing off a little, they've not done enough to make me consider cancelling my order and switching back to Xbox.
Once people make a purchasing decision, they tend to rationalise it to themselves and it makes it very difficult to win back their support.
As somebody else stated - "I now want a Wii U more than an Xbox One".
Good job I have several years worth of great games on older platforms such as the SNES, N64, Gameboy, Dreamcast etc. that I still haven't played.
