I first started coming to Slashdot because this site had some good articles about video games. I might not be an expert sysadmin, I'm a little bit fuzzy about the difference between Vi and Emacs, but I know a thing or two about the video games. Given all that we currently know about both consoles, I'd recommend the PS4. Most multiplatform releases are available on the PS4, and there are a number of upcoming impressive exclusives on the PS4 that aren't available on the Xbox One. In terms of hardware, the two consoles are roughly equal. Last gen, I would have recommended the 360 over the PS3, but this time the PS4 clearly has the edge.
Of course, if we broaden our options beyond the PS4 and XBONE, I'd recommend the Wii U. Triple-A games are a load of bullshit these days. I despise the money grubbing behaviors in the AAA industry. I hate seeing games released in a broken state, with large portions of the core experience carved out as DLC in order to nickle and dime the customer. Nintendo, on the other hand, releases games that are extremely high-quality and then releases DLC in the form of mini-expansions, which is what DLC should have been all along. So if you really like games and don't like bullshit, pick up a Wii U or 3DS instead of a PS4 or XBONE.
