8th-Gen Console Comparison (NO LONGER UPDATED)

1K Favourites

A comprehensive comparison between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 hardware. All facts are limited to what has officially been announced. Tech analysis comes from Anandtech.

More powerful chips and/or any features exclusive to a platform are colored blue. Any restrictions or features that were removed vs prior generations will be in red.

I'm going to be constantly updating this image as more facts roll in. If you guys can continue to point out errors and updates and other things like that, that'll definitely help me keep this factsheet accurate. Thanks!

Last time I checked, PS4 costs more than XBOX.
Deep Down? T-That game is still coming right? Capcom need to take the finger out of their ass and do something with it
afroninjaen's avatar
still using console
paying just to be online must be fun
Supersonic2275's avatar
*sigh* People still give a shit over one console they play on?
MisterMinister's avatar
I own both now.

IMO Xbox one is better when it comes to racing games.
Dogman15's avatar
And of course, today's PCs (2013 onwards) are leaps ahead of both consoles and better for gaming.
Supersonic2275's avatar
No one gives a fuck
Supersonic2275's avatar
Again I don't give a fuck, Consoles do what a pc does just cheaper.... (Thats all im gonna add)
Dogman15's avatar
In the long run, PC gaming is cheaper.

"PC games are so much cheaper that they alone can allow even a high-end PC to undercut a console within a single year"
"Isn't PC gaming more expensive than console gaming?"

But you said that was all you were going to add, so I'm perfectly content if you don't want to respond to me. At least I left the links for others to click if they want.

They fixed most all but one flaw with the xbox one: IT HAS NO BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY! and thats why i'm not buying it (and im not buying a PS4 because of the outage back 2011, lack of native backward compatibility and ripping off shadow the hedgehog with inFAMOUS)
FlakyEspurrPin144's avatar
It has backward compatibility now. Did you buy an Xbox One after that?
kyuubikid213's avatar
I think you forgot to mention the Wii U...  It's actually an 8th generation console, too.
Darkhalf-breed's avatar
i like this, it shows a non biased compassion between the consoles to help make informed decisions for choosing either.
SonicGMI-22's avatar
I think PS4 is gonna be better than PS2 & PS3
ShadowofWOPR's avatar
>Diablo III
>PS4 Exclusive
...Your computer is a Mac, isn't it..?
ShadowofWOPR's avatar
My bad I see you have Vista...  Perhaps you should get into PC gaming then, it's much cheaper and vastly more diverse.
GreenPedalFlower's avatar
vista is a bad computer to play at, trust me i had one.
ShadowofWOPR's avatar
True, though I wouldn't know from experience, I've only had...
MS-DOS, Win98, XP, and 7.
ShadowofWOPR's avatar
What a great impersonation of a dirty console peasant.  Oh woah that game I wanted just went on sale for $5.  Too bad it's $60 on PSWii60.
KingOfSpriters13's avatar
Yeah. I, like everyone, appreciate it when someone plays games just to feel entitled and then brings it up in every conversation they're ever in.
ShadowofWOPR's avatar
Except I play games to have fun, you're the one that came out of nowhere and yelled "PC WHORE!" because I corrected a mistake in the poster.
