Playstation 4 (PS4) or Xbox for Christmas ?

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

SKNR Cover Sep2013With all of the hype and hyperbole over the launch of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One starting to fade now that both systems have launched, it is time for us to give both of them a grade and that grade is Incomplete. Now I am not bashing on either of the systems but rather stating that consumers simply do not have enough information to properly evaluate their systems.

When the Playstation 3 launched, there were issues over the price of the unit, the lack of titles available and many cited Resistance as the only solid release exclusive for the PS 3 and waited patiently for future titles.This time out the Playstation 4 has Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack as their main launch exclusives and offers several free to play games via the Playstation Store.While this is a good step in the right direction especially with a nice selection of third party games such as the latest offerings in the Assassins Creed and Call of Duty series.

Video Game Console Wars

Our friend Gareth at Skewed & Reviewed has taken a really good look at the major game consoles. If you’re like me, a middle aged guy with children, video games are a fact of life. I know a ton of Accent Inns guests (mainly the fella’s…) really like to play the occasional video game and it certainly seems to be the new “silent babysitter” for many of our children. Some may think this is a bad thing but there are positive roles video games can take. My family has some really good times playing video games together and with the interactive console types like the Wii, even some exercise can be had. Wii bowling tournaments are a fun activity in our house. Our system even replaced our old DVD player so now we can watch DVD’s, Blue ray, online movies and play games all in one small console. The key thing to remember is balance. Make sure you and your kids also experience the great outdoors and get regular exercise.

Of course when you’re traveling,  look for hotels (Accent Inns is one) , that offer free WiFi so you can keep playing those games on your laptops, Ipods, Ipads etc….

So for all you gamers or perhaps parents,  that need to decide what system to buy little Johnny for Christmas, Gareth offers some great insights. (more…)
