The PS4 may still have a stronger gaming library than the Xbox One, but the Pro’s improvements are only noticeable in games that have been specifically enhanced for it. The Xbox One X has proven far better at using its extra horsepower to improve the visuals of all games on the platform, whether they are specifically enhanced or not. Microsoft is also doubling down on investing in first-party studios, such as Obsidian Entertainment, and has several upcoming games from Ninja Theory like Hellblade 2 that you won’t find on PS4. Moreover, Xbox Series X will not get any true exclusives for at least a year, meaning new first-party games like Halo Infinite will still come to Xbox One X and will be cross-buy compatible with the newer system.
For those who haven’t made the jump to 4K, both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One S are great consoles with large game libraries. You will be able to play the vast majority of new and upcoming games, including a few exclusive franchises like Halo, Gears of War, and Forza. This even includes some high-quality exclusives in 2020 like Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Plus, if you are, or were, an Xbox 360 owner, a very large number of the last-generation games are now compatible with the Xbox One, which could expand your game library and keep at least some of your old games in rotation. Crazily enough, this even includes the original Xbox games that help foster the best backward compatible ecosystem around. So grab a controller and get gaming!
