Christmas is just around the corner (well, sort of) and no doubt many people of all ages will hope to find a shiny new console under the tree.
Sony and Microsoft are battling it out in this space, as ever, and V3 has put together a breakdown of the two newest devices on the market that will compete for buyers' money.
We're not sit on the fence types here. Oh, no. In fact we most definitely believe that the Xbox One S is the device you should choose, and we've put together a little list explaining why.
1. Backwards compatibility without the price
We know this is an old argument but it still stands firm. The PS4 Pro can play PS2 and PS3 classics, but it's not as simple as sticking in an old disk. The incompatibility between old and new means that the only way to run old favourites is to sign up to PlayStation Now.
The downside is the £12.99 monthly fee, which will be a fair dent in your pocket. But, like Microsoft's offering, Sony regularly adds new titles to the library and at the time of writing there are more than 400 games. The Xbox, on the other hand, offers 250+ games through the Backward Compatibility programme that are free to owners of the originals.
Sony's offering also relies on a consistent 5MBps internet connection, as PlayStation Now is effectively a Netflix of games. Games are streamed rather than stored and played locally on your system, whereas the Xbox solution requires the use of your original disks for verification.
