Playstation 4 is cheaper than Xbox One

On the other hand, the standard version of the Xbox One is priced at IDR 5,500,000. As for the Xbox One X variant which has higher specifications, it is sold at a price of Rp. 6,500,000. When compared, Xbox One price more expensive than the price of Playstation 4. Why? Because the Xbox One has higher specifications than the PS4. Xbox One X aka the pro version can play games at 4K 60fps resolution, while on PS4 Pro you can only play games at 4K or 60fps resolution, not both.

The price of the Playstation 4 is still cheaper than the Xbox One. Even the price of the standard version of the Xbox One is the same as the Playstation 4. So in terms of price, the Playstation 4 is still superior to the Xbox One.

Exclusive Games for PS4 and Xbox

Every console must have an exclusive game that can only be played on that console. Playstation 4 has very popular exclusive games, such as: Marvel’s Spiderman, God of War 4, Detroit: Become Human, Uncharted 4, and so on. Unlike the successful PS4 with its many exclusive games, Xbox One exclusive games don’t seem very satisfying. The most awaited game like Scalebound finally failed to be released.

Marvel’s Spiderman: Exclusive Game for Playstation 4

If you still want to hope, there are actually quite a lot of potential Xbox exclusive games such as Halo: Infinite and Gears of War 5. However, these two games are actually not popular enough among world gamers. In addition, there is a Crackdown 3 game that is still awaited but not much expected. Why ? Because the development of this game is still constrained by problems and it is feared that it will miss many people’s expectations.

Talking about exclusive games, Playstation 4 is superior to Xbox One. The PS4 rarely fails with its exclusive games. Plus, Xbox One games can be played on a Windows 10 PC, so without the need to buy an Xbox One, you can already play the game on a Windows 10 computer.

Online Multiplayer & Backward Compatibility

The price for a subscription to an online game play service on Playstation 4 and Xbox One is more or less the same. Both of these online game console services provide special game discounts for members and free games that can be played online. But Xbox One has advantages over PS4. Xbox One online membership can play games from the Xbox 360 console. This backward compatibility feature is still difficult for PS4 to fight.

Backward compatibility allows you to play old school games from the previous console series. Plus, because Xbox One games can be played on a Windows 10 PC, you can play with friends on different platforms. But what you need to pay attention to is how many of your friends have an online game console membership. If you have a little, of course it will be useless if you pay more for a subscription.

Xbox One is superior to Playstation 4 when it comes to multiplayer. Because Xbox One games can be played on Windows 10, you can play online with friends even on different platforms. Then, backward compatibility support allows you to play old Xbox 360 games on Xbox One.

Multimedia Support

Unlike the Playstation 4, Xbox One focuses on working on a gaming console that can not only play games but can also be used as a digital entertainment center at home. Xbox One can be installed with streaming applications such as Netflix. In addition, multimedia support aspects such as 4K audio and visuals to HDR options are also presented in this game console. Unlike the Xbox One, the PS4 only focuses on being a plug and play game console.

From the multimedia sector, Xbox One looks superior because in addition to functioning as a game console, you can also enjoy interesting streaming video content on the internet.

Which is Better…Playstation 4 or Xbox One?

The choice is yours. If you want a game console with good exclusive games and lots of it, please choose Playstation 4. But if you want a game console that can be a digital entertainment center at home, please buy an Xbox One. In addition, the country is also a consideration for choosing the best game console. The Xbox One is the most widely used in the American and European markets and the PS4 is particularly strong in the Asian market.

The large number of console users affects the ease with which you find a community to play with and find information about the latest games. In addition, the number of users also determines the number of games that can be played. According to data from Metacritic, the number of games for the Playstation 4 is more than for the Xbox One. From this, it can be clearly concluded that the differences between Playstation 4 and Xbox One are in the number of games that can be played, support specifications, and multimedia capabilities. So which console do you choose?
