It's been around three months since the Xbox One and the PS4 launched in Australia.

Despite early dominance from the Xbox One in terms of sales, the PS4 has eclipsed Microsoft's efforts, not only being the best selling next-gen console in Australia , but also managing to sell more than 5.3 million units worldwide.

That's a significant figure already, but consider this: the PS4 hasn't even launched in Japan yet. That happens on 22 February and the results will be interesting to watch, to say the least.

When we reviewed the two new consoles, the biggest 'complaint' was the lack of compelling first-party games. Or, in the really early days, any compelling games at all. So what's changed now? Seamus Byrne and I decided to compare our experiences with the different consoles and see if now is the right time to buy either of them.
