PS4 Slim and Xbox One S go head to head

Consoles
[MUSIC] Look, first things first. If you came here looking for a winner between these two, it's not happening. There's not a giant difference between the performance and quality of these two consoles. They both start at $300. But, that said, on paper, the X Box One S is a more feature packed machine. It supports 4K upscaling of Xbox One games and can stream 4K content from services like Netflix and play 4K Blu-rays natively. The PS4 Slim isn't just a replacement. It isn't an upgrade. Thanks to a firmware update, it can now handle HDR, like the Xbox One S. But that's not really a big deal because there really isn't HTR games and contents for standard PS4s. If 4k HTR is a selling for you, it seems like a smart move is to wait for the PS4 Pro and hook that up to a 4k HTR capable TV. The Xbox 1 S can get you 4 k functionality right now but it won't be nearly as powerful as the PS 4 pro. [MUSIC] At the end of the day it's really about the games. The library of exclusive games and what console your friends have, if you want to play with them online That's what should dictate what you're gonna buy. If you're only concerned about having solar cake compatibility in HDR, then yeah, Xbox One S is the way to go. Keep in mind, project Scorpio is due out later next year and that's going to be Microsoft's answer to the PS 4 pro If you're simply choosing between a PS4 Slim and an Xbox One S, you need to ask yourself what's more important to you. If exclusive games isn't a deciding factor, and it's 4K streaming and upscaling that you're primarily concerned with, the Xbox One S is your console. Now it's worth noting the PS4 slim the 500GB model that can currently be had for $300 with Uncharted 4 packed in. That's a great deal. One minor omission on the PS4 slim though and that's the obstacle outport. Sony removed it and if you're like me and you use third party surround sound headsets. That's not gonna work with this but if you use a receiver for sound or hook it right into your TV, you're good to go. Are you still unsure? You might be, so you can hit me up on Twitter and I can help you out. [MUSIC]
