The performance variation is very minor between the PS4 and the Xbox One consoles.
If all you care about is AAA titles that are not exclusive to a single platform, going for Microsoft’s Xbox One during the summer sale is a good choice.
Titles like Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, FIFA 17, Grand Theft Auto V and Witcher 3 Wild Hunt are common across all platforms. Besides, waiting for the Xbox One S console doesn’t make much sense unless you are looking for the special Gears of War 4 edition or the 2TB hard disk to store over a hundred titles at once. The old version of the Xbox One is bit bulky, which is inevitable but given the price tag of $249 for a limited time, it seems to be an amazing buy.
Microsoft in their official store has confirmed that the Xbox One console will be sold for this steep pricing. The offer is open until stocks last and it is obvious that most would prefer buying it even as an alternative hardware just because it is cheap. If you are an ardent Playstation 4 fan, it still wouldn’t hurt to buy it for $250 to enjoy the exclusives like Forza, Halo and Gears of War. Many of the Xbox exclusives are coming to Windows 10 PCs later this year. Yet, setting up a PC is no easy task if you are not tech savvy and doesn’t have the patience to troubleshoot things on your own.
With a tag that says Sweet Summer Savings, the Xbox One console is being promoted in the store for $249. The same price is applicable for the Gears of War Ultimate Edition bundle while there is a white console which offers Quantum Break for free. Along with the game, you also get to choose one digital game of your choice. Available titles include Gears of War Ultimate Edition, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Rare Replay or Forza Motorsport 6.
The bundle is definitely worth it as you get two exclusives at once. The Gears of War bundle is an ideal choice for those who are fans of the chance and are turned off by the white colored console. It is fun to own something that looks totally unique even though it’s going to play all games with hardly any difference in frame rates.
The only catch is that the $250 Xbox One console has 500 GB HDD which could be considered meager to store games, but it’s truly a matter of perspective.
