In my oppion I think that PS4 is the best choice for a home console (well except for a pc, but lets leave the PC out of this. We all love the PC, we all love Valve, but we are here to talk about the consoles.). Allow me to explain why. First let me get the competiton out of the way.
Oyua and other android based consoles: These are all going to face promt and utter distruction. You can hook a tablet up to tv and play games of the same caliber with a controler. Tablets are getting that powerfull.
Wii U: I like Nintendo (not as much as i like Valve. Valve Power!), but they kinda dropped the ball with the Wii U. Its underpowered and not getting the 3rd party support it needs. I think we should all wait and see whats going to happen next with it. It could get lots of secess when more games come out for it, but probbably not as much as the Xbox One or PS4
Xbox One: Now this is will consist of most of my argument. Microsoft has had one anti consumer policy after another with the Xbox One. Listing them all is kind of a challange for me. 1. DRM policy 2. ambiguity with DRM policy 3. Forza 5 day one patch that was required for game to function 3. always online policy 4. Ambiguity with always online policy 5. Mandatory Eye Toy thing/ Orwellian monstrosity 5. inferior multi plats 6. windows 8 interface 7. $500 dollar price tag 8. can't do 1080p. There is probbably more. The point I'm trying to make is that the Xbox one is an inferior piece of hardware thats being pushed by people who don't respect your rights as a consumer and are activly trying to scam you out of every last penny. And mountian-dew-swigging-dog-♥♥♥♥ing-♥♥♥♥wits are still going to buy it for titan fall.
Now The playstation four. It is more powerfull than the Xbox one, its cheaper, and the multi plats are better. Also you know Xbox Gold or whatever that crap is? The thing where you have to pay to play online? Well I do confess that Sony is doing nearly the exact same thing, but playstation plus also gives out lots of free games. In the past few months here is a list of games I have gotten free of charge from Playstation Plus: Binary Domain, Hotline Miami, Don't Starve (console edition) ,Payday, Gravity Rush, Bioshock Infinte, Resogun, Contrast, Outlast, Devil May Cry (2013 reboot), Metro 2033: Last light, and Remember Me. So This service is actually benificital for me instead of just charging me for something I can get for free, like over at Xbox Live. In additon to that Microsoft did this premuim crap first with the Xbox 360 and Sony could technically bring up the "we had to do for security reasons" if you want to acknowlege those as letgitment points. So yeah thats why I think the playstation four the best home console.
