X-Mas 2018: X-Box One or Playstation 4?
« on: November 28, 2018, 04:32:34 pm »
I haven't owned a Sony system since the Playstation 2.  I've never owned any Microsoft systems.  I haven't bothered with Nintendo in my adult life.  I'm thinking of biting the digital bullet and buying one of these systems.. (do I dare.. both?  neither?)

So what do these systems have to offer Gen X non-gaming-expert heads like me, who sees himself gravitating toward "vintage" games of the 80s - 90s era, and beyond that, possibly some of the current (relatively easy to play) sports titles- basketball, football, baseball, soccer..   and comics-culture stuff that's fun to play..

What's the difference between the GBs and the TBs?

What are the game selections readily available?  What are the online expectations? I see these "online Playstation Store and XBox Store" cards you can buy-- So I take it people can commonly download games now?

Are the "next versions" around the corner?  Christmas 2019?  Will they get replaced anytime soon?

PS4 has much better exclusives vs Xbox and is likely easier to use for sporting games than Nintendo

Even though I don't own it, strongly recommend PS4.

Second choice, Switch.

well, it looks like the next "Marvel Ultimate Alliance" will be Switch exclusive.

I'm still unclear on how the Switch works.  Is it a self-contained system, do you even hook it up to a television?

I'm trying to catalog the superhero-style games that I'd be interested in.
what's good that's come out in the past couple of years?

Anything that's Dungeons & Dragons-style that's worth looking into, not too complicated?

I'm a huge Xbox (and Sega) supporter, but for you, i'd go Switch.
It's a console AND a handheld plus it has Ultimate Alliance on it.

So, at the Playstation and X-Box stores, you can purchase games for downloading?  These games are yours to keep on the hard drive?

any collections of 1980s era stuff?

Xbox Anaconda soon, too!
And Xbox One and One X prices are already dropping.

As for your questions, yes. You can buy titles digitally that are saved on your HD and cloud. Also, Xbox Live has a Netflix-styled service as well.

And of course there are classic compilation packages. Sega won't let you down! And whoever else has em
