Someone else's words not mine, but valid points none the less.

I often hear how much better the Xbox is better than Playstation, and for a while believed it. Until I bought the PS3. Since than, in my mind the Xbox doesn't have a leg to stand on in a battle with the PS3.

The Pros (That Xbox can't offer):

1) Bluray- We all now that Bluray players are often over $100 dollars, but if you have a true HD TV, you will know that Bluray is worth it. Stunning Picture quality and functionality make it the top dog of the portable media world. So it only makes sense that a gaming console with Bluray is not only a good value for bundle purposes, but can offer superior picture and sound.

2) Online Play- Who likes saving money? If you answered "I don't," then you must have some serious cash to burn and I'm not sure why you are wasting your time reading this debate when you could be driving your Porsche. So we all like saving money, especially when it comes to things that shouldn't cost anything at all. The perfect example is online play.
Xbox Live is a fantastic online experience for your Xbox, if you want to be handing over cash for something that costs the provider nothing. To be fair the price is at a perfect level...for Microsoft. It is not so unreasonable that people will refuse to pay it, but is is still about as much as you are paying for Netflix per month. Playstation Network on the other hand has many if not all of the same features for FREE. You can't beat free no matter how hard you try.

3) Exclusives- Each console has their exclusive games that often sell really well, take classic Mario Kart for example. But between the Xbox and the Playstation, the Edge would have to go to our friends at Sony. Sure Halo swept the first person shooter world for a while, but with MW3 and Battlefield 3 in the market now, Halo has lost its luster.
But in the case of the Playstation, long time series like Ratchet and Clank (PS exclusive by the way)have no match on the Xbox. Even newer series like Uncharted and Little Big Planet have as of yet to see anything come even close in production quality and sheer imagination (mostly with LBP.)

In conclusion, the Xbox is a quality console, but when the topics of feature and price come to the table, it becomes less and less of a contest.

On the counter point of current blue ray players at the moment they have become significantly cheaper, still beneficial to purchase one of these consoles just for the pure fact that it's a multi-use device.

Lol, Blu-Ray is Sony technology. I find it funny the XBOX one uses it.

Not sure, tbh. But just thought I'd point that out.

And online aren't free, I understand why MS charges for online play, but they don't charge a huge amount.

As do I, MS must have paid for the rights to play blu-ray.

What's not a huge amount to you? 50-60 whatever dollars a year? Sure not to some people, but as is stated in the topic, free is always going to be better then not free, no matter what.

Yeah, Lol.

The PS4 looks more gaming oriented than the Xbox One, the Xbox One is an 'entertainment centre' (or whatever they call it), not a games console.

It's because Xbox didn't really showcase any games. Like I've said, wait til E3.

Btw, love your signature xD

Anyhow, I don't know why I jumped into this topic. I should leave because to be honest. It all comes down to preference and what you like.

Just remember your opinion reflects your upbringing. So if you grew up using an Xbox in the family, you could wind up with a little bias. No matter how free form you may think you are.

Just to tell everyone, the new PS4 has 10x the processing and game power then the new "xbox one" i'm pretty sure. It's gonna be way better.

Lol, I saved it so I wouldn't lose it :P

That'd be the best thing to do. My friends usually get both, but I prefer Xbox so I get it.
