    Games console thing...

    So, young lads birthday is fast approaching. He is using my old PlayStation the last while and is loving it. Grand theft auto is a big hit! I know nothing about games consoles so I'm asking a fairly basic question. Xbox or PlayStation? And which one? Iv seen re con ones in a few places, think they were Xbox one and PlayStation 4.... Which would be better for the likes of grand theft auto and other car games?
    Point it and shoe it!

    Plastation 4 has multiplayer without subscription, xbox one is subscription based, so u need the game, and monthly fee on top of that. I would personally favor ps4 for that reason, other than that, differences are rather minimal

    Didnt know PS4 has subscription based multiplayer. Also, the differences are minimal then really. I would personally still go probably for PS4 over Xbox, but it gets down to personal preference. Used to have Xbox 360 at home back in the time...

    I have a ps4.
    Forza is only available on xbox. I've never played it but its supposed to be a really good driving game.

    And I think gran turismo is only available on ps4.

    So the best two driving sims are on different platforms

    Heres some food for thought

    When we are talking Racing Sims - Assetto corsa is better than both combined... And Project cars, while not as good as Assetto Corsa is still good enough. And those two are available on both consoles.

    Forza is however much better than Gran Turismo, hands down on that, and its not only about graphics, but the handling and added features too.

    Exactly the same
    and if a gamer best to have both
    personally if only 1 then Xbox for Forza but only reason for a Xbox I can see
    xbox subscription 5 euro a month but well worth it as get 4 free games a month you can download and keep
    id say you would use online gtav online is much better than offline
