Specifications are close together along with the main features though we won’t get too specific between the two consoles. For now, the deciding factor may finally be video game based.
If we look back at the past generation consoles between Microsoft and Sony, it was apparent as to what features were most important to gamers. Though both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 offered similar services, the two did have few key elements that may have helped in determining what some gamers wanted out of a system. Now that the PS4 and Xbox One are going head-to-head trying to persuade gamers to their consoles, let’s take a look at the top exclusives currently out for both consoles right now.
Now these ratings come from Metacritic which takes an average out of several video game websites and publications. So now lets go through the list of exclusive games that have become the deciding factro for buying PS4 or Xbox One:

A popular fighting game series that hasn’t seen a release since 1996 has finally made it’s next big debut on the Xbox One.
