As a few of you know, I’m a console gamer. Sure I may fire up the PC to rock a little World of Warcraft, Starcraft, or Diablo from time to time (yay Blizzard!), but my heart lies with console. So with both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One coming to market later this year, I’ll have a very important decision to make – which one do I buy?

For the record, I currently own a PS3 (my first “newest” console purchase back in the day) and an Xbox 360. I’m also a PlayStation Plus member and pay for Xbox Live. So as you can see, I’ve invested in both. And while the use of the PS3 has always been greater due to its versatility as a Blu-ray player, I should also put on record that I’ve tended to favour it over the 360. So does that mean I choose the PS4 over the One? Maybe.

In fact, I’ve probably already made up my mind. While both devices are powerful and have much potential, at the end of the day the lower price point for the PS4 is attractive. Not to mention, but Sony’s E3 presentation discussed far more gamer-friendly policies than Microsoft’s did. Sure I’ll have to stick with PlayStation Plus to maintain online game play, but seeing as I’ve always been paying for Live, it’s not really a stretch.

But what say you? What are your thoughts? Let’s talk console. Or let’s talk about The Division – yes, this game looks awesome:
