          I've had mine since day one and have noticed no difference since when I first got it.

                 Make the jump! I owned the ps3 and xbox 360, and was on the fence,when I took a poll on Facebook all my friends suggested the ps4. Then, I originally bought the ps4 on day one. Within the first few weeks I really started hating it for its various problems and restrictions. About two months ago I switched it out for the X1 at Gamestop, and lemme tell you I'm way happier. If you trying to decide, contact Gamestop and see what kind  of current promotions they are running for a trade in. I caught a very good deal on my trade in paying less than $100 with some accessories. Let me know if you have any particular, lingering questions about the X1. Good luck and best regards.

              Haven't had the first problem...but to be honest....they're both good systems. If I had the money, I'd own both to play all the games I could handle from both...go ahead and buy one, you won't regret it...

                  This ^. I went from PS3 to xone. No issues so far. I'm in the US and the MS infrastructure for online MP is what drew me in. The only this that there are only about 25k to 30k people playing on xone (that's what it says for me in the midwest). There are lots of good players on next gen consoles. Probably because they are older gamers who could afford the consoles at launch so it's not easy to "pub stomp" or whatever you call it.

                • Re: Help please

                  I would say stick with the ps4. The xbone has been the most unstable gaming system I've ever owned. Seems completely underpowered.

                  Also keep in mind the sales figures. The ps4 is substantially out selling the xbone. More people are playing the ps4. You will have a harder time finding matches on the xbone compared to the ps4.

                      I have had the X1 sense day one and have had no problem finding a game so its a non issue.

                        • Re: Help please

                          You must be east coast? Lack of players to start matches have been an issue talked about on many xbone forums, including this one for some time. Currently at least one thread here on top 25 and on support thread.

                          Of the new gen, ps4 is one to go to just by the math alone.

                              West coast actually but I'm just saying I've had it sense day one along with some friends and there has never been a problem finding quality games.

                                    I live in Ireland and play on the PS4 and very rarely play solo anymore because of the matchamking putting me in lobbies with a mix of french,eastern europe, southern europe, russia, north africa and even into the middle east.

                                     

                                    Most of my PSN friends and nearly all my clan are based in the states so now i play with them at night and the connection is overall much smoother.

                                "most unstable"...lmao. You're definitely a ps4 fan boy that's for sure. Both consoles are almost identical in what they are running with a slight edge to the ps4, both are running amd processors, almost the same memory and hdd size..and he says "under powered"..lmao..If you can tell a difference between the 2 with practically identical processors, then you would be the first human to be able too...lol..I've never had a problem finding mathces. Clearly this guy is playing peggle or angry birds on his...lol and finally this guy sounds like he's just one of the guys that follows the crowd..quoting "sales figures" really. Most people are not playing on the ps4...basically this guy is begging you to get a ps4...so I leave you with this: "If you follow the crowd, when the crowd stops, then you stop, If you go your own direction, you don't stop until you decide"...

                                    "PS4 specs make room for much faster graphics rendering than Xbox One, especially when combined with Sony's choice in superior system memory. PS4 has a distinct advantage with faster 8GB GDDR5 memory, while Xbox One went with the slower bandwidth of the 8GB DDR3 variety."

                                    Derp!

                                     

                                    Im the only one having trouble finding matches and that's why so many others are complaining about it too.

                                    Derp, Derp!

                                     

                                    Devs develop games based on whether they think they will sell well. I'm sure they will focus on the poorer selling consoles as their priority.

                                  It seems some of the big titles are starting to have a preference to PS4... Rockstar clearly is favoring PS4 over X1 for GTA5... Probably going to be same trend for GTA6 in a couple years as well. Trend??

                                    have you been keeping up with E3, clearly xbox one has better games coming out on it (in my opinion and is also what everyone else said who I talked to even people who own a PS4 are switching over to xbox one).  I own both and hardly play the ps4.  I would rather wait an extra 15-30 seconds waiting to find a lobby on the xbox one and have better gameplay.  In the end it is what plays better for you.

                                        Xbox historically has been more popular in North America while Playstation is more popular in the rest of the world. It does seem that in US and Canada, people seem to have a slight preference to the Xbox.

                                            then maybe the people who have problems connecting to a lobby are in "the rest of the world" because I never have a problem and all I play is search and rescue (very unpopular game mode)

                                                Well, it seems that way. At the peak hours where most people are online, most players are from US and Canada, so it's understandable to have trouble finding lobbies if you are in Europe, Asia or Australia as they don't have as great of a player pool to choose from, that and the already limited numbers of players on current gen consoles.

                                            Looks like you can try a xbone if you live back east. Anywhere else a ps4. I wonder if a next gen is worth buying at all at this time.

                                              At this point I would suggest not to get the Xbox ONE.

                                               

                                              First the Bluray drive failed, then they shipped me out an Xbox ONE with no signature confirmation (even though they charged me 16 dollars in "fees"). The Fedex Ground Driver claimed he delivered the package when I know for a fact he didnt. He just said he left it at the door and knocked , which he didnt do cause my dogs would have told me someone was at the door.

                                               

                                              So now I am 4 days into the lost shipment filing case and Microsoft has failed to even call me or email me. Their red tape says it takes 72 hours until they contact me.

                                               

                                              Just cause of the fact I have to suffer in the first place cause I decided to buy their console is ridiculous. The fact that they temporarily hold a 500 dollar deposit over my head for a 400 dollar Xbox is stupid.

                                               

                                              If you can deal with not having Titanfall which is a great game BTW then keep the PS4. Plus after playing on the ONE you can tell the hardware is already outdated.

                                               

                                              ADDITION, after looking back upon this console since I bought it there are many actual problems with the console, the main one being the Bluray drive not doing any sort of spinning up sometimes. But then you get all the other bugs and issues with the console itself it is WAY WAY worse than the 360 where I honestly dont remember any real issues. Sure I got the RROD console and the refurbished one I got was great, but that problem would not have been solved if someone didnt take MS to court and force them to extend the warranty on those consoles.

                                               

                                              But the issues with the ONE are way worse than any issue and honestly they should have never released this console yet. Then add the fact they went back on there statement "The Xbox one will never sell without a Kinect" (TWICE)  and a few months later what can we buy now ? A Kinectless ONE.

                                                  So youre mad at microsoft for the delivery man not delivering a package but saying he did...BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO

                                                  my bluray drive works fine (I wish it didn't because if it didn't and you had to ship it back microsoft would give you a free game of your choice)

                                                  From a person who currently has both and will always buy both consoles the ONE is definitely better.

                                                      Actually I am mad at Microsoft because they took the drivers word that he delivered it at my house. So far. This is like years ago when I fought a ticket that I was speeding when a witness in the car said I wasnt as well. Just because I got the ticket in the first place made me guilty. And now I fear that if they find the package WAS delivered to my door as according to the scan that says it WAS delivered then I lose the case as well.

                                                       

                                                      I had a witness that there was no delivery and no knock on my door like it was said.. FedEx has the word of the driver who told his boss that told his boss that told Microsoft he delivered the package to the right address. A Fedex driver can scan any package he wants to at any time and mark it as delivered and dump it in a dumpster if he wishes.

                                                       

                                                      And dont say that FedEx drivers are trustworthy about 3 months ago a Fedex driver ran a constantly flashing red light and killed a driver and his sons recently, not counting the firey crash in California..

                                                       

                                                      On that side note google Lockhart crash FedeX (Joe Salas Castro) and see one story,

                                                      then google I 410 crash San antonio,

                                                      THEN google the caifornia crash.

                                                      Fedex Ground drivers do not actually work for FedEx they work for an outsourced company that is responsible for the drivers. FedEx for example cannot fired them they have to get the company to work for to fired them. So far 3 major crashes in about 3 months. The drivers are not reliable at all. Biggest mistake FedEx ever decided. FedEx has an internal policy though (like at formerly Kinkos) that a driver is allowed to refuse to drive under certain conditions and if he chooses to do so then he is totally responsible for any accident). But the outsource companies have no policy that FedEx can enforce including drinking on the job. If FedEx finds that outsourced employee drinking on the job FedEx cannot fire them the outsourced company must take action. Just as like if a driver has a long history of missing (stolen) packages, FedEx cannot reprimand him.

                                                       

                                                      Plus the fact that if I now do not return my broken Xbox to them within 7 days I will get charged for not shipping it back. AND the fact that now I have to PAY for the materials and pay to ship it back. At that point I will have no Xbox one with no promise from them they will actually ship me one out since they have "proof" they did.

                                                       

                                                      And No. Their policy changed they no longer offer you a free game for your troubles. The policy keeps adjusting to benefit Microsoft. Now you must ship your console back within 14 days once the tracking number shows it was delivered. It used to be once you signed for your package but the removed the option to use a signature confirmation. Which is free. I paid for delivery both ways cause Microsoft charged me for that, and they did not use brains to get a signature proving delivery, especially when its got "MS repair center" on the label on the package. Thats like saying "I am a console, steal me".

                                                       

                                                      And in case you are wondering why I know what it says on the label ? I had Microsoft ship me out a power brick recently as well.

                                                          Third party contractors are used by a lot of delivery companies because its a cheaper option than employing your own drivers and maintaining a fleet of vehicles.

                                                          If fedex cannot supply a proof of delivery they are legally at fault unless either you or the sender gave them permission to doorstep your delivery.

                                                          Even in the age of handheld scanning machines the customers signature is still required, whether its on a paper docket or the drivers scanner.

                                                          Its not up to you to prove you did'nt get your parcel, its up to fedex to prove that you did,

                                                              Actually not. If the package says no delivery confirmation required the driver is allowed to leave it at the doorstep. The driver has the option whether to get one, his decision. HOPEFULLY his fault for making that choice.

My faith is on a total stranger that could care less how his decision affects me.

                                                               

                                                              They proved it was delivered just not to my hands.

                                                               

                                                              ADDITION You know how the driver proved it ? Stupidly by googling my address and saying "Yep, I delivered it there." And his boss let him go home.

                                                               

                                                              Its stupid that MS shipped out 500 dollars worth of product with no extra insurance than the standard 100 dollars and didnt mark it signature required, and they wont even apologize for not doing that. PLUS the fact that the console alones deposit is 500 dollars instead of 400. If it was a Kinect bt itself deposit would be 150.

                                                               

                                                              Under their rules I cannot spend 500 dollars of my money in my bank account which under normal conditions is understandable but now I cant touch that money for weeks because of all the red tape. They cant stop that "automatic deduction" of a console I shouldnt have to ship back to them yet. If I didnt get my replacement console I should be under no obligation to give them mine back. Its all automated BS they cant stop.

                                                               

                                                              I could have requested a hold at location drop off instead but they cant guaranty to modify the shipment once enroute unless I was the shipper. Itsa stupid, especially when I was watching my door on the inside all day long listening for noises, my dogs barking, etc. Never EVER had this happen in the 13 years in this home dealing with Amazon and UPS.

                                                          If you do get a xbone be sure to have the back facing forward. You'll be unplugging the console a lot to fix crashes and freezes and you'll want it easy to get to.
