    I grew up with a PS3 but I modded it and loved it so I never got the chance to make friends on PSN so I have no ties to people on it. Most people I know have a Xbox 360 so I would like to make the switch but not sure. How does one make friends online in games btw?

    I also already own a Wii U.

    I'm a Nintendo and Sony fan, so I'll say PS4.

    PS4 is a hundred bucks cheaper. Unless you really like kinect *spits* go for it.

    Actually would probably help to look at which system has more exclusives you want more. Pretty much the only exclusive I've heard of that I care about is PS4's upcoming inFamous sequel, but maybe you'd rather have Dead Rising 3 (xbone exclusive) or something.

    And ignore anyone bound to come in and tell you to get a PC instead.

    It depends on the exclusives. Wikipedia has nicely formatted lists of games announced as being released for Xbox One and PS4, so check out the lists and pick which one you like better.

    To be 100% fair (and I'm not a huge "PC master race" guy or anything), the vast majority of the games coming to PS4 and Xbox One are being released on PC as well, and usually at a lower price. When combined with the big push now being made to get PC's in the living room, you are really doing yourself a disservice if you do not consider "buying a gaming PC" as a potential option nowadays.

    You picked the worst possible forum to ask this question but I'm quite impressed with how this thread is actually coming along. As a PS4 owner my vote is going to the PS4 but as mentioned before do check the announced titles for both and see which one has games that are more your style.

    As of now? I guess I'd recommend the PS4. Sony has a much stronger track record when it comes to exclusives, and the cheaper price tag certainly help.

    Honestly, though, I think you're better giving it a year or so. By then we should have a better idea of where the consoles are going and the prices should be lower for both of them.

    A hundread bucks cheaper, more powerful and with better first-party support, all things point to PS4.

    It depends on which upcoming exclusives you want. Right now they both have about 1 or 2 exclusive games where all the other games are the same on both consoles.

    All things considered, the PlayStation 4 has a slight technological edge over the XBox One, plus I personally liked a couple of their exclusive titles, so I'll suggest that. As it stands today though, both systems have something going for'em.
