    Which console? 16th Apr 18 at 2:53 PM
    Easy question (I hope) - when my Xbox 360 finally gives up the ghost, what should I replace it with?

    I'm only an occasional gamer so I don't need the latest super-duper version but I'm thinking PS4 or Xbox One? More importantly, why?

    Everyone I've asked who has an Xbox says stay with Xbox as it's familiar and it's backwards compatible but everyone who has a PS4 says it's more than just a console.

    Ooh decisions, decisions.

    Sign up for Games With Gold for about £30 a year (or less) you get 2 360 and 2 xbox games a month. The 360 games you get to keep, the xbox games can only be played while your sub is active. These are digital btw

    Right, I was going to wait until after my upcoming house move to decide but Amazon Prime Day made my mind up for me and I got an Xbox One S 1Tb with 3 games, 2 controllers and a vertical stand for £199 (a saving of £119).

    Thanks for all your input.

    The bonus is that half my old 360 games work on it as well.

    I'm a PS4 boy at the moment, but the XBONE looks like a decent bit of kit and I can't completely justify having them both (especially since I have a 360 and PS3 too).
    (Although I could be wrong, I often am.)

    They were Sea of Thieves, Forza 3 and Minecraft (one of the controllers was Minecraft themed as well). I've always wanted to play MC so that is a bit of a bonus.

    I think that the ps4 is slightly better graphics ,there isn't much in it .we have both consoles . ultimately I would look at the exclusive games for each particular console and use that to decide .

    I used xbox 360 back in the days and now I am running PS4 for the last year and a half. Good run so far, solid graphics and awesome titles compared o Xbox, so I would recommend it.

    Life has never given me lemons.

    It has given me anger issues, anxiety, a love for alcohol and a serious dislike for stupid people, but not lemons.

    Which console?
    Best for Mobility: Nintendo Switch at Amazon, “Makes playing on the go easy.” Best for Graphics: Xbox One X at Amazon, “If you're looking to get the highest sense of realism from a current gaming console with the most powerful displays, the Xbox One X takes the cake.”
