Sharing is caring!

Microsoft has released the Xbox One S last month and in two weeks, Sony will bring the PS4 Pro, which will cost $399 and will complement the PS4 console. The 500GB variant of the Xbox One S will cost only $299, and the difference of 100 dollars can be used to buy a new game and another controller, while if you’re considering purchasing an Ultra-HD Blu-Ray player for your PS4 Pro, you’d spend $300 more. But there are many other advantages that will convince you to buy the Xbox One S.

The Xbox One S Offers Five Games

There are many bundles compatible with the Xbox One S and players will buy many this holiday season. But meanwhile, they can enjoy playing all five games that are offered for free, for the standard Xbox One S that costs $299. The Hallo collection includes Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2, 3 and 4 titles. It’s not sure if the PS4 Pro will come with a free game in the package, but for now, you can check the list of confirmed titles that will be available to play on this console, which includes: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Uncharted 4, Paragon, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, The Elder Scrolls Online and Infamous: First Light (released).

Mod Support For Skyrim Remastered

The Xbox One S will have mod support for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4, two games that have support for user-generated content on PC. Sony wants to bring mods on PS4, although this feature was supposed to already roll out on this console.

Ultra-HD Blu-Ray

The PS4 Pro supports 4K resolution and HDR. The Xbox One S is not capable of 4K gaming, because it has a weaker processor and graphics chip, but it offers a built-in Ultra-HD Blu-Ray player ($300), which plays at 4K, which is four times that the standard Blu-Ray supports.

Backwards compatibility

PlayStation 3 games are not compatible with PlayStation 4, but players can subscribe to PlayStation Now, to take advantage of the backwards compatibility option. Also, there are many top-notch remasters that can be played on PlayStation 4. The Xbox One users are able to play some of the Xbox 360 games, and the list of titles that are backwards compatible on Xbox One is growing.
