Nerd Wars! Xbox One vs PS4 vs Wii U

At this point, the big three have all revealed their “next-gen” consoles. For the most part, we know what each company is bringing to the table. We’ve seen the E3 coverage and read about the hands-on demos. Now we just impatiently wait to play them ourselves. For this week’s round of Nerd Wars!, we’d like to take the time to re-evaluate where everyone stands in these ongoing “console wars.” Are you sold on the Wii U, Xbox One, or PS4? Let us know!


Come join the conversation! Let us know who you’re supporting and why. If you hate them all, let us know why. Let’s get some real talk started!ย

  1. Xbox in my heart, that’s just the way it is. Like some sad love story where I’ll be heartbroken in the end… but I can’t help it!!!

      1. I don’t know… do you feel ancient?
        But I’m sure you can call yourself a philosopher, should you want to: “Answers life’s questions while playing through every game known to man.”

  2. Even though I own a Wii U, I’m going to have to say PS4. the Wii U has no new games worth playing right now and there wont be any till 2014. Come on Nintendo!!! You’re killing me inside!

    Sony has more hype and more release games. Plus, the have Kingdom Hearts 3.

    Microsoft can sod off. I am not interested in regrets of things that shouldn’t have existed in the first place. DRM is NOT good. And I’m not happy with their business model either.

    1. I’m excited for both the PS4 and Xbox One. So far it’s looking like the Xbox has better exclusives, but Sony is definitely offering some solid games as well.

      Not to entirely burst your bubble, but Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming to the Xbox One…

  3. Nintendo will always be first in line to take my money, because that’s how I roll. Between the PS4 and Xbox One, at this point, I’d say Xbox One. Better exclusives and more focus on innovation, for better or worse. PS4 right now is just a PS3 with a shiny new box.

    1. I absolutely agree with you here. Xbox is legitimately trying to bringing some new to the next-gen race and I commend them for that. The exclusive list is also much more impressive and Sony is losing exclusives left and right.

  4. I’m definitely going for the PS4; they’ve shown they are here for the gamers, and not only for the money. On a side note, I’ve shared this over twitter and facebook, ’cause you know…the more the merrier

  5. Hi ^^, Thank you for visit my blog ^^, about the consoles i prefer PS4, because it has better features than the others consoles and not require internet connection to play games ^o^

  6. I’m not 100% committed either way just yet, but I’m definitely leaning towards the PS4, if for no other reason than their whole-hearted embrace of the indie scene. I’m not sure I’m getting anything at launch, though – neither system has any one particular game that I must have right away (besides Watch Dogs, although that’ll be on PC, too).

  7. That’s a toughie. Not really impressed by the PS4 (PS3 with pretty graphics), but I’m a huge Nintendo fan and am really looking forward to the Xbox One. In the long run I think I will probably own both an X1 and a Wii-U, as Nintendo exclusives are just too good to pass up! Helps that I have an 8-month-old daughter who will no doubt appreciate the Wii-U in a couple of years ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I legitimately think each system provides it’s own unique flavor to next-gen gaming. I’m sure I will eventually get all three. Nintendo will always have a special place in my heart, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve definitely leaned towards Microsoft and Sony.

  8. I’m gonna say Wii U. Nintendo will always make games that will make me buy their consoles. Sony has console exclusives that I enjoy as well, but I’ve seen nothing console selling yet. As far as exclusives with either Xbox One or the PS4… the only ones I really want, I want to play on the PC.

  9. Definitely the Wii U, since there are more of the kind of games that I use to play.
    PS4 and XBOX One will probably be great too, but I’m still a sucker for stuff made by Nintendo, and even while they’ve had slow starts with their 3 last consoles, I still favor them before other competing consoles never the less. Since they’ve always made great games I’m confident that I’ll be presented a quality library of games during the life span of the Wii U, as I’ve been with all of their consoles.

    1. Nintendo has great first-part games on all their systems. That’s one thing we can always count on. Unfortunately they are taking a while to get them released on the Wii U. I think in a year it will have an amazing lineup.

      1. I think so too. I guess they’re getting really nervous or something because of all the bashing the system has gotten so far. Aside from the sparce game library I have no complaints for the system. And as it’ll fill upp eventually, I see no problems with this ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Hey guys. I love your site and thanks for all the likes you put my way.

    I’m a massive 360 fan however everything so far has been pointing me to the PS4 so I guess I’ll be waving goodbye to my Gamerscore which is a massive shame. If there was the option to buy the One without the Kinect I would be more tempted but as it stands the humongous price tag and some questionable decisions by MS have put me off.

    1. Thank you very much for the kind and words and for stopping by.

      I can understand people being upset with the price tag. It is a large chunk of money, but I think in the long run this will work in the consoles favor. We will see some really innovative things from the Kinect and now that every system has one, developers won’t be iffy about developing a cool feature for it. They will be excited to see what they can add to their games with it. Especially now that we have face recognition and individual finger detection.
